Target Terror (Donkey Kong Land 2)
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
This is the first roller coaster level in the game, where the Kongs take control of a Roller Coaster. It's not very safe to ride the vehicle on the rails, as there are dangerous enemies and large gaps the heroes must avoid. Check and X Barrels, as well as open and closed gates, make their only appearance here. By hitting a check barrel, the first gate in the Kongs' way will open; however, if they hit an X barrel, the first gate in their way will close. Closed gates are inevitable, and they will knock off one Kong. Several Zingers and Flitters fly around the place.
The level begins on a wooden platform near a roller coaster track with a Roller Coaster on it. The cart leads them to a check marked barrel that opens a gate just ahead. After a small hill that follows this gate, they ride towards an X marked barrel found in the air. They should avoid hitting it to keep the nearby gate open to pass through. A third barrel is immediately after this gate with a check mark on it. When hit it opens a gate just ahead. A small hill and a gap follow this gate. The letter K floats above the gap. After racing down a large hill, the heroes come up to an X marked barrel with the letter O next to it. They must avoid the barrel to travel through the open gate ahead. The Roller Coaster then rides up a large hill subsequent to the gate. A drop is at the end of the hill. Once they heroes drop off of the edge of the track here, they land on another track with a check marked barrel above it that can be used to open a nearby gate. After they are through this gate, they come up to a few gaps, including a large one that they can only cross by bouncing off of a Flitter in it. They can find a hidden track in this gap that they can ride along to reach a Bonus Barrel. Another gate is after this gap, and the Star Barrel follows it.
After winding up and down a few hills and passing the letter N on the way, the Kongs approach an X marked barrel that they must avoid to cross through another gate. The Roller Coaster leads them up a big hill after this gate. A gap is at the end of the hill. If the primates drop off of the edge of the track here, they can land on a Flitter and hit into a check marked barrel found near it. The Flitter can bounce them back onto a track, which has a gate on it. This gate is opened by the previous check marked barrel. A second Flitter can be bounced on just ahead of the gate to hit another check marked barrel. It opens a nearby gate. An X marked barrel follows this gate that must be avoided to keep another gate ahead opened. They can find a Flitter near here that they must bounce on to reach a DK Coin. Once the heroes pass the gate, they approach a fork-in-the-road, where there are two separate tracks for them to travel on. Both tracks lead to the same area, but the lower track leads to a Bonus Barrel. A check marked barrel can be spotted immediately after the two tracks, opening a gate close by. A sign is ahead on a wooden platform after the letter G. When they pass this, the Roller Coaster disappears, leaving them on foot again. A spring is near here that can bounce them out of the level.
