Stage 5-5 is the fifth level in the Desert in the Game Boy version of Donkey Kong. This level requires the player being fast.


Mario starts next to the door. He must climb up the Ladder where at the top he will encounter Bowbows again. Mario can avoid them or throw one at each other to defeat them. Mario must continue left where he can get a Hammer to defeat the Bowbows if he wanted to with the Hammer or there's one left. Mario must then fall down and land on the platform above the moving platform, then land on the moving one. Mario must then grab the Key, hopping on a Spring to get up to the moving platform. The key must then be thrown onto the Conveyor Belt to get it to the door. Mario cannot go the same way to save time as there are Spikes which will defeat him, so he must go around and must be extremely fast to get to the key before it disappears. Once Mario has got to the key in time he must simply walk over to the door to end the level.
