The Kongs can be found in midair; they are about to land in a skull Barrel Cannon in Blast & Bounce

Blast & Bounce (which means Blast and Bounce) is the thirty-seventh level in Donkey Kong Country Returns, and the ninth and final level in the large Forest (Donkey Kong Country Returns) world. It is the Forest's secret temple level, as well as one of the nine temple levels in the game (this includes the Golden Temple , which is both the ninth and final temple level (the final, 64th, level in the game) and world in Donkey Kong Country Returns. Anyway, as with every other temple, to unlock Blast & Bounce, the heroes must collect all of the K-O-N-G Letters in every level of the Forest (with other temple levels, all K-O-N-G Letters must be collected in every level of that world they are in). So, because of that, no K-O-N-G Letters are present in this level nor any other temple level. Anyway, the level has a few platforms, however the majority of it requires the use of bouncing off of Tiki Buzzes and using Barrel Cannons. Most Barrel Cannons are surrounded by Tiki Zings. If the Kongs (Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong) are hit by one of the enemies while blasting through the air, they are likely to fall into the abyss below. Also, the level features many strange, brownish-colored Tires. Enemies in this level include, Tiki Buzzes, Tiki Zings, Big Zings, and medium-sized Tiki Zings, or "Medium Zings". In Time Attack mode, a time of 1:39:00 is needed to get a gold medal, a time of 1:41:00 to earn a silver medal, and a time of 1:55:00 for a bronze medal.


Overview

The level begins with the Kongs landing on a floor. There is an urn that can be pounded on for a collectible most likely, right behind the apes, as well as two more urns in front of them. Shortly after the two urns, the floor ends. A Tiki Buzz can be seen hovering still in the air while a Tiki Zing moves up and down below it. Two more Tiki Buzzes are after this first Tiki Buzz, the second one (which is really the third Tiki Buzz of all) has a Tiki Zing moving underneath it. There is a skull Barrel Cannon (skull Barrel Cannons/Auto-Fire Barrels explode/destroy themselves, whatever you want to call it, after they fire the Kongs) attached to a circular structure with a Tiki Zing that orbits around it (the Tiki Zing orbits around the skull Barrel Cannon, not the circular structure!) . There is another skull Barrel Cannon attached to a circular structure (all skull Barrel Cannons in this area are attached to circular structures) right next to this first skull Barrel Cannon, which also has a Tiki Zing that orbits it. A Puzzle Piece very low in the screen between the two skull Barrel Cannons. Anyway, here, on the floor the apes are on, they should bounce on the three Tiki Buzzes and hop into the first skull Barrel Cannon. To reach the first Puzzle Piece, the primates can high bounce off the third Tiki Buzz, hover over the first skull Barrel Cannon, and land right into the Puzzle Piece to collect it. A hidden skull Barrel Cannon can help the Kongs fire to the second skull Barrel Cannon if they move right when fired. Anyway, in the first skull Barrel Cannon, the apes should watch the Tiki Zing orbiting it, and the Tiki Zing orbiting the next skull Barrel Cannon. When the apes have a chance, they should fire to the second skull Barrel Cannon. When the apes are fired, it creates a hole in the area the first skull Barrel Cannon was, and this goes on for the next few skull Barrel Cannons in this area. In the second skull Barrel Cannon, the Barrel aims up at another skull Barrel Cannon with two Tiki Zings orbiting it. With caution, the apes should fire to the next skull Auto-Fire Barrel. In this skull Barrel Cannon, the Barrel aims at another skull Barrel Cannon with three Tiki Zings orbiting it; the next skull Barrel Cannon is to the right of the skull Barrel Cannon the Kongs are in now. With caution, the apes should now fire to this skull Barrel Cannon. Here, the Barrel Cannon points up at another skull Barrel Cannon with two Tiki Zings that orbit it. With caution, the primates should now fire to this skull Barrel Cannon. In this Barrel Cannon, the Barrel aims right. It aims at another skull Auto-Fire Barrel with one Tiki Zing orbiting it. Even though this is easier than the previous ones, which had two or three Tiki Zings orbiting them, the apes should have caution and fire to the next skull Barrel Cannon. Here, the skull Barrel Cannon aims at a Big Zing. Here is fairly different because everything is all flipped over. So, this time, the Big Zing is in the center, and the next skull Barrel Cannon does the orbiting!! Odd, right?! Anyway, as the skull Barrel Cannon orbits the Big Zing, it rotates too. So when it is reaching the left side (which points at the Kongs), its opening also points at the left side, and vice versa. Anyway, when the skull Barrel Cannon nears the apes and points at them, the heroes should now fire into this skull Barrel Cannon. Now, here, the objective for the Kongs is to repeat the same process all over again. Once again, the heroes must fire into a skull Barrel Cannon, once again, orbiting a Big Zing. With caution, the apes should fire to this skull Barrel Cannon. Now, as this skull Barrel Cannon continues to orbit with the Kongs in it, the objective for the apes is to fire into a skull Barrel Cannon with two Tiki Zings orbiting it. With some real caution, due to the orbiting skull Barrel Cannon with the Kongs and the Tiki Zings orbiting the next skull Barrel Cannon, the heroes should now fire to the next skull Barrel Cannon. Now, in this skull Barrel Cannon, the objective for the heroes is to fire into a skull Barrel Cannon below them to the right, once again, orbiting a Big Zing. With caution, the heroes should fire into this moving skull Barrel Cannon. Here, the apes must once again fire into a skull Barrel Cannon orbiting a Big Zing, which is located above it to the right. With caution, the heroes should fire into the skull Barrel Cannon. Now the heroes should now fire into a skull Barrel Cannon being orbited by three Tiki Zings. With caution, the heroes should now fire into this last skull Barrel Cannon of the area. Here, the skull Barrel Cannon aims at another skull Barrel Cannon with no circular structure attached to it, unlike the previous ones, that has a Tiki Zing behind it and a Tiki Buzz hovering behind and above it to the right. Now, watching the three Tiki Zings, the duo should now carefully fire to the next skull Barrel Cannon. This skull Barrel Cannon aims upward, and can fire the Kongs on top of the Tiki Buzz behind and above it to the right. There is another Tiki Buzz below this first Tiki Buzz to the right, and a skull Barrel Cannon after this second Tiki Buzz. So, when fired from this skull Barrel Cannon aiming upward, the heroes can move right to land on the Tiki Buzz, then they will drop down onto the second Tiki Buzz, then land inside the next skull Barrel Cannon. This skull Barrel Cannon aims upward, and a brown Tire on a stand is directly to the right of this skull Barrel Cannon. The heroes can fire from this skull Barrel Cannon and move right to land on the brown Tire. Here, the heroes can bounce on the brown Tire and move right to head over a Tiki Zing and land right into another skull Barrel Cannon. In this skull Barrel Cannon, the Kongs can fire over a Tiki Zing and land on another brown Tire. However, the heroes should be careful because there is a Tiki Zing moving up and down there. Once the Kongs fire to the brown tire, they should move right to head over the Tiki Zing and land on the tire. Now, on this brown tire, the objective for the Kongs is to jump over a BIG Zing moving up and down, and then land on another brown tire. So, when the large Tiki Zing (Big Zing) moves down the apes should bounce on the brown tire and head right to land on the next brown tire. Here, on this next brown tire, the heroes should move up and down. Here, a gap with a Tiki Zing moving up and down, three Tiki Buzzes after it, and another Tiki Zing after the Tiki Buzzes can be seen. So, the objective for the heroes is to bounce over the Tiki Zing and land on the first Tiki Buzz. However, the Tiki Zing is moving up and down, so the apes should bounce on the brown tire and head right when the Tiki Zing moves out of their way to land on the first Tiki Buzz. Here, the apes should bounce onto the second Tiki Buzz and then high bounce over the next Tiki Zing. The heroes will land on another Tiki Buzz. Here, they should bounce onto a lower Tiki Buzz slightly to the right. Now, as soon as the apes land, they should quickly high bounce over a Tiki Zing to land on another Tiki Buzz. Like with the previous Tiki Buzz, the heroes should high bounce on this Tiki Buzz and move right to head over a Tiki Zing and land on a Tiki Buzz over another Tiki Buzz with a skull Auto-Fire Barrel. WAIT! A Puzzle Piece is above this Tiki Buzz over another Tiki Buzz. What's the trick to get it? Well, before the Kongs drop from the first Tiki Buzz (Tiki Buzz over another Tiki Buzz), they should high bounce on the enemy to reach it. After that is done, the apes should fall onto the second Tiki Buzz, which causes them to drop/fall into the skull Auto-Fire Barrel. The skull Auto-Fire Barrel aims in a direction to the right, and fires the apes onto a Tiki Buzz, in which, they should bounce on to reach and enter a skull Barrel Cannon. In this skull Barrel Cannon, which aims at two giant, cracked rock walls on stands, the apes can fire to another skull Barrel Cannon. After firing, the apes will land inside a skull Auto-Fire Barrel far in the background. The skull Auto-Fire Barrel will fire the heroes to a large group of "moving in a wavy pattern" brown

tires with what look like Medium Zings (or Big Zings in a farther background) between them, Tiki Buzzes above some of them, and Tiki Buzzes also in the area. Some trails of Bananas are stacked in a vertical position above some of the bouncy, brown tires. Banana Coins are also found in this area. The Kongs should carefully try to get through this area. Shortly after landing, the heroes will encounter an area surrounded by a circular structure with a Puzzle Piece in the middle of it, and two Tiki Zings "orbiting" it. So, to obtain such a glamorous, valuable collectible, the heroes must use one of the brown tires to carefully bounce (or bounce and hover) to the circular object and avoid getting hurt. Close to the end of this dangerous area, the heroes have to bounce between two Medium Zings above the brown tires, and three Medium Zings with two Tiki Zings on top of them between the brown tires. At the end of this area, the heroes should bounce on a Tiki Buzz over a gap to land inside a skull Barrel Cannon. The heroes can fire to a skull Barrel Cannon with inside a circular object (just like in the start of the level, all skull Barrel Cannons/Auto-Fire Barrels in this small area are inside a circular object) in the background behind a group of skull Barrel Cannons in the foreground. The heroes can then fire up diagonally to the right to enter another skull Auto-Fire Barrel. Here, the apes will be fired up diagonally to the left into another skull Auto-Fire Barrel. The heroes will then be fired up diagonally to the right. Here, the heroes will now be fired up diagonally to the top skull Auto-Fire Barrel, which then fires them into a skull Barrel Cannon. Strangely, when the apes are fired here, three non-seen Tiki Zings are wiped away. Anyway, the apes can fire into a skull Barrel Cannon below them. Inside this next skull Barrel Cannon, the apes can fire to another skull Barrel Cannon, however, they should be careful, for a Tiki Zing moves side to side between the two Barrel Cannons. Carefully, the heroes should fire to this next skull Barrel Cannon. In this next skull Barrel Cannon, the heroes have to fire into another skull Barrel Cannon below to the right. However, a Tiki Zing makes performing such a move a little more difficult. The heroes should carefully fire to the next skull Barrel Cannon. Here, the heroes must do the same as with the previous (fire to another skull Barrel Cannon while avoiding a Tiki Zing moving side to side. Carefully, the heroes should fire themselves here. In this next skull Barrel Cannon, which aims upward, the heroes must fire and move right to land in another skull Barrel Cannon above them slightly to the right. BUT! The same Tiki Zing the heroes had to avoid just now to get here, is the Tiki Zing they must avoid to get to this next skull Barrel Cannon (because this skull Barrel Cannon points in the Tiki Zing's pathway. So, with that being mentioned, the heroes should carefully fire to this next skull Barrel Cannon. Here, the objective for the apes is to fire and move right to land onto a brown tire. There are no enemies or hazards in the way, so once the heroes land inside this skull Barrel Cannon, they can fire to the brown tire). Once the heroes fire here, they must now bounce onto another brown tire. After that, the heroes must bounce over a Big Zing in a gap below to another brown tire. Here, the heroes must bounce over a Big Zing above them to the right to land in a skull Barrel Cannon attached to a spoon-like structure (the rest of the skull Barrel Cannons in this small area are attached to spoon-like structure). The heroes must now fire to another skull Barrel Cannon on a spoon-like structure while the skull Barrel Cannon they are in moves up and down its spoon-like structure. With good timing, the heroes should fire to the next skull Barrel Cannon, which causes the spoon-like structure to fall (it does that with every skull Barrel Cannon attached to a spoon-like structure, so it's nothing new). Now here, the heroes must fire to another skull Barrel Cannon attached to a spoon-like structure that seems to have two Big Zings around it: one above it and one to the right of it. A Puzzle Piece can be seen behind the two enemies. Anyway, carefully, the heroes should fire to this next skull Barrel Cannon. Here, the objective for the heroes is to fire into the next skull Barrel Cannon attached to a spoon-like structure without getting hurt by the Big Zing to the top right, while the Barrel moves up and down. Wait, how do you get the Puzzle Piece? Well, the trick is pretty tricky and EXTREMELY DANGEROUS becouse you are firing through a small space between two Big Zings to reach a Puzzle Piece behind them. It sounds simple, but the actual thing is not. Anyway, all the Kongs must do is fire when the skull Barrel Cannon moves to its highest point to reach the Puzzle Piece without a "scrape" (well, it normally is scratch, but those spinning blades of the Big Zings don't scratch, THEY SCRAPE!!!!) and land in the next skull Barrel Cannon. Anyway, carefully (if the heroes ignore the Puzzle Piece) fire to the next skull Barrel Cannon.

The heroes about to fire between the two Big Zings to reach the next skull Barrel Cannon attached to a spoon-like structure. Yep, they really do look like spoons, don't they?

Now here really tests your timing skills. The heroes must now fire through a large space between two Big Zings to reach another skull Barrel Cannon, once again, on another spoon-like structure. Even though the space between the two enemies is quite large, that doesn't mean that this is easy because THE SKULL BARREL CANNON IS MOVING UP AND DOWN AT THE SAME TIME!!! So, that still is a challenge. Anyway, carefully, the heroes should fire to the next skull Barrel Cannon. Here, the heroes must now fire to a skull Auto-Fire Barrel attached to a circular structure (this skull Auto-Fire Barrel and three more Auto-Fire Barrels are attached to circular structures). This is pretty easy since no enemies are in the way, however, the skull Barrel Cannon still moves up and down. So, you still have to use your timing skills. With caution, the heroes should fire to this Auto-Fire Barrel. This Auto-Fire Barrel fires them to another skull Auto-Fire Barrel below them slightly to the right, which in turn, fires the apes to another skull Auto-Fire Barrel above them slightly to the right. Here, this skull Auto-Fire Barrel fires the duo to another skull Auto-Fire Barrel to the right of them, which in turn, fires the apes up into a venn-diagram-like area full of Tiki Zings and Barrel Cannons moving in a circular path along the "diagram's" lines, only to be caught by a Barrel Cannon. Inside this Barrel Cannon, the heroes must fire to the next Barrel Cannon, while avoiding the Tiki Zings as both Barrel Cannons move along the "venn diagram's" lines. As the Cannons move, they also rotate to face the direction they are moving towards (if they are moving up, they will rotate to face up, and so on). Once the apes fire here, the apes must now do the same to enter

another Barrel Cannon while both Barrels move along the "venn diagram's" lines. Once they have done so, the heroes must, once again, do the same to enter the next Barrel Cannon while they move along the "venn diagram's" lines. After firing to this next Barrel Cannon, the primates must now do the same as before to enter the next Barrel Cannon, while they move along the "venn diagram's lines". Here, the apes must now repeat the process, once again, to enter the final Barrel Cannon of this strange area. When the heroes fire here, they can now fire to a skull Auto-Fire Barrel attached to a circular structure (this skull Auto-Fire Barrel and three more skull Auto-Fire Barrels are attached to a circular structure). When the heroes do so, the Auto-Fire Barrel fires the heroes to another skull Auto-Fire Barrel above them slightly to the right, which in turn, fires the apes down to the right diagonally into another skull Auto-Fire Barrel. This skull Auto-Fire Barrel then fires the Kongs to another skull Auto-Fire Barrel to the right of the apes, which in turn, fires the apes up to the right onto a

Once the heroes jump to the Rare Orb, it shows the heroes grabbing it (which is pictured above). So, this is Blast & Bounce's Rare Orb being collected. Isn't that cool?

floor that leads to a room. Inside the room, the heroes can see a yellow Rare Orb being released from the hands of a structure, as always (they are always released from structures, not always the color yellow!). Anyway, once the heroes jump to the Rare Orb, it is collected, and the level ends. Finally, the level is complete!


Secrets

Puzzle Pieces

  1. The first Puzzle Piece is at the beginning of the level. There are three Tiki Buzzes over a gap right after the starting point. If the heroes high bounce on the third (last) Tiki Buzz, they can hover to the right to head over the first skull Barrel Cannon and into an abyss with the part of the Puzzle Piece showing. The heroes will fall into this abyss, automatically collecting the Puzzle Piece, and find themselves in a hidden skull Barrel Cannon. This skull Barrel Cannon can fire the heroes to the next, non-hidden skull Barrel Cannon.
  2. The second Puzzle Piece is hidden in an area with many skull Barrel Cannons. The duo must shoot through all the skull Barrel Cannons until they reach the penultimate (next to the last, reference gotten from dictionary.com ) one. Here, they need to shoot themselves towards the upper right, which leads to a new skull Barrel Cannon. The new skull Barrel Cannon fires the heroes through many Bananas and the Puzzle Piece, and then, another skull Barrel Cannon fires them back onto the track.
  3. 640px-BlastandBounce365-1-

    The heroes have high-bounced on the first Tiki Buzz, and it seems like they have already collected the Puzzle Piece (Puzzle Piece # 3), which is found here. The first Tiki Buzz MUST be high bounced on to get this Puzzle Piece.

    The third Puzzle Piece is after many Tiki Buzzes, brown tires and some Tiki Zings/Big Zings (Tiki Buzzes mainly). Anyway, the heroes will come up to a Tiki Buzz hovering above another Tiki Buzz. A skull Barrel Cannon is underneath the second Tiki Buzz. The Puzzle Piece is above this first (top) Tiki Buzz. Anyway, once the heroes land on this first Tiki Buzz, they should high bounce on it to reach it.
  4. The fourth Puzzle Piece is within a group of many Tiki Zings and a set of Tires. The heroes should bounce on a brown tire to the left of a circular area high in the air with two Tiki Zings "orbiting" it and the Puzzle Piece in its center. In the air, they should head right in order to get inside the circular object and collect its Puzzle Piece. However, while collecting this, they should watch out for the Tiki Zings orbiting the circular structure.
  5. The fifth and final Puzzle Piece is in the spoon-like structure area. While the primates try to get through this area with skull Barrel Cannons attached to spoon-like structures, they will come across one skull Barrel Cannon attached to a spoon-like structure. This spoon-like structure has two Big Zings surrounding it: one above it, and one to the top right of it. There is a small space between the two large enemies, as well as a Puzzle Piece behind them. To reach this Puzzle Piece safely, the heroes should fire when the skull Barrel Cannon is at its highest point to get between the two enemies without a scrape. Be careful, this dangerous one takes timing!!!
