Tree Top Bop
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
Taking place in a jungle canopy, Tree Top Bop features many obstacles, such as, tilting trees and platforms, spikes, plants and dandelions that give items when blown on or opened, and enemies. Some Auto Fire Barrels are also located around the beginning of the level, and they help the Kongs escape from the lowest parts of the jungle to the treetops. The enemies in this level include Tiki Goons, Tiki Dooms, Tiki Torches, Frogoons, and Awks. While the enemies take up much of the space in the level, Rambi the Rhino appears hidden in Tree Top Bop to easily defeat all of them.
In the Time Attack mode of the game, a time of 0:54:00 is needed to get a gold medal, a time of 1:25:00 for silver, and a time of 2:07:00 for bronze.
The level begins in the depths of the jungle where it is darker than other jungle areas found previously. An Awk enemy is between two stone cubes here, and some spikes are right after it. Above the spikes is a small platform with another Awk on it. There is a raised piece of land nearby as well that the Kongs can jump over to find two Awks and a Tiki Doom in front of a tilting tree with bananas on it. More tilting trees are just ahead that can be used to aid the primates in reaching a Barrel Cannon. Below the treetops are some more spikes and a DK Barrel. The moving Barrel Cannon can shoot the Kongs to another cannon and the letter K. The next cannon shoots the heroes to more Auto Fire Barrels, which then send them to the treetops with a long line of bananas.
Here, there are larger tilting trees that area infested with Frogoons. The last two platforms are a little smaller than the previous in this area, but they lead to a Barrel Cannon that can shoot the primates over a wide abyss. On the other side of the abyss, there is a set of three platforms above a group of spikes, each with an Awk on it. Some dandelions also grow next to the spikes to give the Kongs collectibles if blown on; near them area some stone statues nearby with Frogoons on them. A stone cube is located between them that can be used to reach the letter O. After passing a pile of spikes, the primates come up to the Tutorial Pig with the checkpoint.
The Kongs must jump over another stone block after the checkpoint. If they pound on the platform on the ground just before it, they can find an underground area with Rambi and some large stone cubes with the rhinoceros's face on them. If the Kongs are underground here, they can shoot back above the trees by using a Barrel Cannon. Farther ahead of this area is a long group of spikes with a tilting platform above it. Rambi can smash through the spikes, or the Kongs alone can climb up the platform to reach the platform in the center of the area. This platform does not tilt, but it has a Tiki Doom and an Awk on it. Above this platform is a smaller platform with a DK Barrel that can be reached by jumping on the Tiki Doom, while under it are some large stone cubes that Rambi can smash through as a shortcut to reach the next set of spikes. Another tilting platform is above these spikes for the primates, and it can help them reach another tilting platform in the treetops. A tilting tree is near it, but it is too high to reach easily, so they must tilt the platform up to make the jump. More tilting trees are farther ahead, and two Frogoons are between a few of them, with the letter N right above the enemies. A heart can be found on the final tree, along with a Tiki Torch floating next to it.
When the Kongs reach solid ground again, they come up to a Frogoon standing on a few stone structures and some spikes. A tilting tree is above these spikes, and there is a ledge nearby that the Kongs must get to in order to progress. There, they can find two platforms above them with Awks and a straight pathway to three Frogoons; the letter G is above them. Just after them is a series of platforms with the Slot Machine Barrel right above them. If the Kongs hit the barrel, they complete the level.
