Track Attack[1] is the nineteenth level in Donkey Kong Land and the third level of Monkey Mountains & Chimpanzee Clouds.

Track Attack is a cloud level that takes place over the skies of Monkey Mountains. Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong get across the level by moving from cloud platforms. The Kongs encounter Hogwashes and Zingers along the way. The Zingers often fly directly into the path that the platforms follow, and the Kongs must jump over the Zinger to land back onto a platform. There are short segments where the Kongs must walk across clouds, where there are Gnawties and Kritters.


From the start of the level, the Kongs must walk into a nearby Blast Barrel. It will shoot them to another barrel, which will then shoot them to a platform. This platform will move over a blue line. As the Kongs ride on this platform, they must try to dodge all the Zingers flying by. After the third Zinger is passed, they should hop off the platform before it falls and get on a large, solid cloud. The Kongs should carry on and defeat a few Kritters to reach the second platform. This time, the platform will travel a shorter distance, while the Kongs dodge a Zinger and a Hogwash in the way. Soon, they will see a trail of bananas leading to another platform. They must jump to this platform before the one they are on collapses, and then continue to ride. After beating two Hogwashes, the heroes should make it to another cloud to journey across. Defeating more Kritters will take them to the next platform. It will carry them a short distance into a few Zinger, whom the Kongs must try to jump over. Once they see a formation of bananas creating an arrow, the group will have to hop off the platform they are on and walk across another cloud. They will find the Continue Point here.

At this point, the Kongs must hop aboard the next platform. This one will take them a rather long distance. As it moves in a wavy path, the heroes will have to dodge all the Hogwashes and Zingers that come in their way. They will soon have to leap onto a small cloud platform, which will fade away once touched. The Kongs must quickly jump off of it, and get onto a solid cloud. Here, they will need to jump up to another platform and ride along. This platform will only go so far, and after passing a single Hogwash, it will fall down. Before it falls off screen, the Kongs will have to hop to the platform to the right. This time, the platform will go a longer distance. Luckily, though, there is only one foe on the way. Eventually, the Kongs will see another platform, and they must quickly jump onto it. This one will go a very short distance. In fact, as soon as they start to move, the heroes should make a well timed jump and land on a large, solid cloud. If Donkey and Diddy Kong walk a little farther, they will find a portal. It will take them out of the level.

The Bonus Area is in a small cave area, and the letter O appears just before the right end. A Mincer moves under the letter O back and forth horizontally. The Kongs can jump to the letter O and then exit to the right.

The Kongs must jump onto them and move right in midair to enter a Blast Barrel that takes them to the second Bonus Area. There, the Kongs can collect many bananas arranged in a heart shape and a Kong Token. They can exit from a Blast Barrel to the right.
