Diddy Kong rolls Donkey Kong to avoid two spiked pillars in Jagged Jewels.

Jagged Jewels is the twenty-eighth level of Donkey Kong Country Returns and the sixth and final level of the Cave (Donkey Kong Country Returns). It is the secret temple level of the Cave, so all K-O-N-G Letters in the previous five levels must be collected to unlock this level, like with any other world (all K-O-N-G Letters must be collected in that world's levels, not the Cave's levels). Also like other temple levels, this level is not required to beat the game, and it features no K-O-N-G Letters. Hence the name, the level features many sharp, jewel-like, purplish pink spikes. These spikes can be found on or around every platform in this level, and they hurt the Kongs (Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong) with one touch. Most of the spikes are located on square-shaped platforms sticking them occasionally to attack the Kongs, but some of revolve around hemisphere-shaped platforms as well. Other times, the spikes quickly orbit around tilting, cylinder-shaped platforms or appear on rectangular-shaped parts of the ceiling that drop down and come back up, which can smash the apes. The level also feature some spiked pillars, which behave like the spiked Pillars from the Mario (series) (they only appearance of them in a Wii game, other than Donkey Kong Country Returns, is New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Enemies in this level include Tiki Goons, Buzzbites and Tiki Boings. In Time Attack mode, a time of 1:10:00 is needed to get a gold medal, a time of 1:30:00 for a silver medal and a time of 1:50:00 for a bronze medal.


Overview

The level begins with the Kongs landing on a straight floor. The Kongs can head straight to find a DK Barrel at the very end of the floor. Here, the apes can jump to a floor with a raised part of floor next to it. There is a Banana Coin above this floor, as well as a trail of four Bananas on the floor. However, the apes should be careful for, spikes every now and then come out of the floor. On the raised part of floor, the apes can jump to a platform with an urn that can be pounded on for a collectible on it, as well as three Bananas. There is also a spiked ceiling that smashes onto the platform and rises up every now and then. A Buzzbite orbits the bottom of this platform, and it cannot reach the apes. The Kongs should carefully pass the spiked ceiling and head to the other side of the platform. On the other side of this platform, the apes can jump to a square-shaped platform with Bananas on it. However, the apes should avoid the spikes that come out of it every now and then. From here, the apes can jump into the air and collect a Banana Bunch in the air, then land on another square-shaped platform with an urn that can be pounded on for a collectible on it. The apes can bust the urn open, however, they must avoid the spikes that come out of the platform every now and then. From this platform, the apes can jump to a hemisphere-shaped platform with spikes revolving around it. On the platform is a Banana Bunch, however, if the apes want to come here, they should watch out for this platform's spikes that revolve around it. From this hemisphere-shaped platform, the apes can jump to a platform with a Banana on both edges and two spiked ceilings that smash the ground and rise up every now and then. A Buzzbite orbits the underneath of this platform, so it is unable to hurt the Kongs, however, the Kongs should carefully pass the two spiked ceilings and head to the other side of the platforms. From there, the primates can jump to a square-shaped platform with an urn that can be pounded on for a collectible, most likely. Being aware of its spikes, the Kongs should wait before they can jump to a hemisphere-shaped platform with spikes revolving around it. There is a Tiki Goon on the hemisphere-shaped platform. Then from there, the apes can then jump to another hemisphere-shaped platform (when they have a chance to) with spikes revolving around it, that, this time, has a Buzzbite that orbits the platform on it. With caution, the apes should carefully jump to a square-shaped platform when the hemisphere-shaped platform's spikes are not in the

The Kongs are hovering in the air. Hmmm...where are they going to land?

Kongs' way and the Buzzbite is not nearby. This square-shaped platform has two Bananas on it that can be collected, however, the apes should watch out for the spikes that pop out of the platform every now and then. The apes should then jump to another square-shaped platform that has an urn that can be pounded on for a collectible, most likely. From here, with caution and whenever they can, the apes should then jump to a hemisphere-shaped platform that has a Banana Bunch above it and spikes revolving around it. Now, on this platform, whenever they can, the apes should jump to a square-shaped platform with a Buzzbite orbiting it. There are also two Bananas on this platform that can be collected, however, the apes should watch out for the spikes that pop out of the platform every now and then and the Buzzbite that orbits the platform. From here, the apes should carefully jump to a platform. There is a Banana on the side the apes jump on, for the other side cannot be seen just yet. There are three spiked ceilings and this is their pattern: the middle one falls, then the one on the left (the one the Kongs are right beside), and when the two rise, the third one (the one on the right) falls. So, when the first two pillars rise, the Kongs should let the last one fall and rise, however, another spiked ceiling after this spiked ceiling falls too. So, when these two rise, the Kongs should quickly get to the other side of the platform where another Banana is found. Now, with caution, the apes should jump to a hemisphere-shaped platform with a Tiki Goon on it, an urn that can be pounded on for a Puzzle Piece and spikes revolving around the platform. With caution and whenever they can, the apes can then jump to another hemisphere-shaped platform with a Buzzbite orbiting it and a Banana Bunch on it, as well as spikes revolving around it. With caution and whenever they can, the Kongs can jump to a large, tilting, cylinder-shaped platform with a trail of Bananas on it. Here, a Buzzbite orbits this platform along with a ring of spikes. So, the apes should avoid both obstacles as they reach the other side of this large platform, which cannot be seen when the apes jump here. With caution and whenever the apes can, they should then jump to a hemisphere-shaped platform with a Banana Bunch above it and spikes revolving around it. Now, from here, whenever they can and with caution, the apes should jump to another large, tilting, cylinder-shaped platform. This platform has two rotating rings of spikes on it, two Banana Bunches above it, and a Buzzbite that orbits it. As the Kongs avoid the rings of spikes and the Buzzbite enemy, they can make it to the other side of the cylinder-shaped platform, which cannot be seen when the Kongs land here. Here, there is a gap with a spiked pillar in it. This spiked pillar moves upward and slowly goes back down, however it warns the Kongs when it is going to attack by shaking a bit. When the pillar is down, and the Buzzbite is not around, the apes should quickly jump to a very small platform with a Banana and an urn that can be pounded on for a collectible, most likely, on it. Here, to the directly to the right of the Kongs is another spiked pillar that moves up and goes down slowly. There is a Puzzle Piece above the pillar's tip and another very small platform on the other side of the spiked pillar with a Tiki Boing who jumps up and down on it. The Puzzle Piece can be obtained if the Kongs jump to the platform with the Tiki Boing on it when the spiked pillar goes down enough. Here, the Kongs can defeat the Tiki Boing with the jump (most likely you will land on it anyway) and collect a Banana that just sits there. Directly to the right of the heroes is another spiked pillar that moves up and slowly goes back down, as well as a large, tilting, cylinder-shaped platform on the other side of the spiked pillar. When the pillar goes down, and the tilting, cylinder-shaped platform does too (tilts down enough) the apes can jump onto the cylinder-shaped platform. Here. a ring of spikes orbits this platform, which the primates must avoid. On the other side of this large platform, there is another spiked pillar in a gap and a very small platform with a Tiki Boing that jumps up and down on the other side of the pillar. The Kongs (when the pillar is down) should jump here, where they will land on the Tiki Boing, defeating it. Here, they will notice another very small platform ahead that the Kongs can jump to, as well as a spiked pillar in the ceiling and another spiked pillar on the right side of the next small platform. When these platforms slowly go back in place, a Puzzle Piece moves up from the gap between the first small platform (which the Kongs are on) and the second small platform, which can be obtained with a roll-jump to the second small platform. On the second small platform, the apes can pound an urn to cause it to break and release a collectible, most likely. Now, from here, when the spiked pillar to the right of this small platform goes down, the apes can jump to a large, tilting, cylinder-shaped platform with a Buzzbite (or probably two Buzzbites) orbiting it and three rotating rings of spikes on it. After the Kongs dodge these dangerous obstacles and enemies, they should go to the other side of this platform. Here, there is another spiked pillar with a very small platform that has a jumping up and down Tiki Boing on it. When the pillar goes down, the Kongs should quickly jump to the small platform and land on the Tiki Boing, for this spiked pillar operates slightly faster than the others. From here, with caution and whenever they can, the apes can jump to a hemisphere-shaped platform with a Banana Bunch on it, a Buzzbite orbiting it, and a spikes revolving around it. Now, with caution and whenever they can, the duo can jump to a small platform with a Banana on it. Here, there is a spiked pillar with a large, cylinder-shaped platform on the other side of it. When the pillar goes down, and the cylinder-shaped platform tilts down, the apes should quickly jump onto the cylinder-shaped platform, for that spiked pillar also operates fast. On this cylinder shaped platform, there is a trail of Bananas on it, a Buzzbite or 2 Buzzbites that orbit (s) it, and a ring of spikes that moves around it. When the Kongs carefully make it to the other side of the platform, they can carefully jump to a platform with an urn that can be pounded on for a collectible, most likely. From here, the apes can then, with caution and whenever they can, jump to a hemisphere-shaped platform with spikes revolving around it. Now, with caution and whenever they can here, they should jump to another hemisphere-shaped platform with spikes revolving around it. Now, from here, the apes can jump to a huge round platform with a Banana Bunch on its left and right sides, and a hole in the center that has a hemisphere-shaped platform with spikes revolving around it. When the Kongs land on the hemisphere-shaped platform, a Barrel Cannon appears above the gap next to the platform. This round platform that tilts can help the Kongs reach the Barrel Cannnon, which fires them onto a floor. The duo can move forward to find a pinkish-purple Rare Orb. When the Rare Orb is grabbed, the level is complete!


Secrets

Puzzle Pieces

  1. Untitled picture-Jagged Jewel-Puzzle Piece

    The Kongs near the third Puzzle Piece.

    The first Puzzle Piece is found in an urn on a tilting platform. The Kongs should pound the vase to cause to break and reveal a Puzzle Piece. The apes should grab it before the platform's spikes stab them.
  2. The second Puzzle Piece is also hidden in an urn. However, this time, it is on a hemisphere-shaped platform that has a ring of spikes revolving around it. The Kongs need to pound the urn to cause it to break and reveal the Puzzle Piece. They can then collect it without touching the spikes.
  3. The third Puzzle Piece is hovering over a spiked pillar that shoots up and recoils constantly. The apes need to wait until the spiked pillar recoils and then hop over the pillar's tip to grab the Puzzle Piece.
  4. The fourth Puzzle Piece is much like the third, except it is reversed. The Kongs need to roll at the piece when the spiked pillar is recoiling, and then jump to the next platform to avoid dying and losing an Extra Life Balloon.
  5. After shooting to the final platform in the Barrel Cannon, the player can have Diddy Kong in order to fly back to the Puzzle Piece. The Puzzle Piece is above the Barrel Cannon, and requires rockets to reach that far.
