Rocky-Valley (alternatively spelled Rocky Valley[1] and also known as Rocky Mountain[2]) is the eighth world in the game Donkey Kong for the Game Boy. Donkey Kong escapes to it after being defeated on the Iceberg. Rocky-Valley is also the location of Donkey Kong's Tower. Rocky-Valley features some of the most difficult puzzle stages of the game and requires the player to make the most of Mario's abilities. There are many places which require strategic thinking and exact knowledge of the game's physics. Rocky-Valley is the longest world in the game, amounting to 16 stages. It also appears in the ending, where Mario, Pauline, Donkey Kong, and Donkey Kong Jr. take a photograph.
