Liftshaft Lottery, named Mill in the Time Attack mode, is the sixth level in Donkey Kong Land III and of the first world, Cape Codswallop. It takes place in a large mill. There are some moving platforms for Dixie and Kiddy to jump from, as well as sections where they have to climb ropes. Liftshaft Lottery is one of the twelve levels in the Time Attack mode, where the Kongs must complete the level under 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Dixie reaches the Star Barrel

When the level begins, the heroes find themselves walking along a long pathway through the mill, grabbing the letter K and defeating many enemies, including Sneeks. At the end of the pathway, they can see an elevator lift to ride up. It takes them to the next floor, where they travel west and watch out for more foes. If they manage to make it to the end of this area, they can ride up another two lifts and jump to the right on the third floor. Jumping into the above Barrel Cannon from there will take them through the letter O and on to another elevator. This platform guides them to the fourth floor, where they head east again and climb up a nearby rope. The rope takes them into an area full of several other vertical ropes. Hopping to each one carefully, they eventually get to the next area, where they find a Star Barrel.

About halfway into the level, the group ride down a nearby elevator to reach a lower floor and avoid more enemies, such as Kobbles. Soon, they see an elevator that helps them reach another lift. This lift takes them to the next floor, where they journey on to the west and find the letter N. Moving on, they climb up some ledges and head under a boardwalk to find the letter G. If they continue east from there, they pass some enemies and soon find a gap. Jumping into it, they land near a flagpole. Touching the flagpole ends the level.

The Koin of Liftshaft Lottery

When the Kongs pass the second group of bananas forming an arrow, they can go up a small elevator lift. They must jump to the next area to the left. After the Kongs wait a while, another elevator platform hovers down and pulls them up to a hidden area with the Koin, next to a Steel Barrel. The Kongs must throw the Steel Barrel at the wall behind Koin for it to bounce into Koin from behind. Koin is defeated and the Kongs earn the DK Coin.

Bonus Levels[edit]

The first Bonus Level of Liftshaft Lottery

Liftshaft Lottery has two Bonus Levels, listed by type:

  • Collect the Stars!: Near the start of the level, the Kongs ride two small elevator lifts to reach the third floor. They must jump on the path to the right of the Buzz and travel down it, past two Rekoils, to enter into a Bonus Barrel at the end. In the Bonus Level, the Kongs must collect 33 stars within 35 seconds by climbing along several vertical ropes. Each of the stars are in groups of three on the ropes. After the Kongs collect every star, the Bonus Coin appears at the bottom of the rightmost rope.
  • Find the Token!: After the letter G, the Kongs must continue onward until reaching a gap. From there, they must jump on a platform that carries them up into a Barrel Cannon, which then blasts them to another, and into the second Bonus Barrel. In the Bonus Level, the Kongs have 30 seconds to reach the Bonus Coin on the other side. There are two floors, each with two Rekoils. The Kongs must climb a rope, while avoiding a Buzz, to get to the second floor, where they must continue on a left path to the Bonus Coin.
