In the Time Attack mode of the game, a time of 1:35:00 is needed to get a gold medal, a time of 2:10:00 for silver, and a time of 3:00:00 for bronze.
Right at the start of the level, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong must enter a Barrel Cannon to ride on a minecart. Throughout the ride, the Kongs must time jumps to ride the next minecart while Mole Guards throwing bombs appear. The minecart will eventually take the Kongs to the end of the rail track, where they should jump off and land on the ground below. Here, more Mole Guards will appear and throw bombs at the Kongs. There are also platforms that fall upon being touched (with Squeeklies in the same area) and falling crystals that can destroy the wooden platforms below them.
Beyond the first checkpoint, lots of bomb-throwing Mole Guards appear in the background. After dodging the bombs, the Kongs must dodge more falling crystals and cross more moving platforms with Squeeklies.
Another minecart lies past the second checkpoint. In addition to making timed jumps between minecarts, the Kongs must also crouch at one point to avoid ceiling crystals. After riding past several falling crystals, the minecart will put the Kongs on ground again (with the next checkpoint), where they must dodge more bombs thrown by Mole Guards as well as falling crystals. Towards the end, the Kongs must dodge a colony of Squeeklies to reach the Slot Machine Barrel.
