Rambi and the Kongs are about to run through some volcanic rocks in Smokey Peak.

Dear all readers, Smashbro8 fans, and wikia editors, this page, Smokey Peak, is incomplete. I, Smashbro8, will come back soon and complete it however, I might wait until the Golden Temple is complete to come back to this level and complete it.



Smokey Peak is the fifty-ninth level of Donkey Kong Country Returns, as well as the fourth level of the Volcano. This level is unique to other Volcano levels due to the fact that the foreground in it is silhouetted. Only the Kongs' (Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong) clothing, Super Kong's and Super Diddy Kong's clothing, and the Tutorial Pig's green flag are visible in this silhouetted foreground. Rambi the Rhinoceros appears in this level. He is needed to complete the level, for he is the only one that can plow through the many volcanic rocks scattered throughout the level. Along with these many volcanic rocks, there are also many holes on the tops of rocks attached to the ceiling. These holes on the tops of rocks drop or pour lava. The lava dropped by these holes can instantly kill the Kongs with one touch. There are many cog-shaped objects with Rambi's rhino symbol on them. Rambi can hit these cog-shaped objects to make platforms appear. Also, near the end of the level, the ground starts to fall behind the Kongs. So, because of this, Rambi must constantly be running to avoid the falling ground. Enemies in this level include Tiki Goons, Tiki Tanks, and Tiki Buzzes. In Time Attack mode, a time of 1:21:00 is needed to get a gold medal, a time of 1:35:00 for a silver medal, and a time of 2:05:00 for a bronze medal. Also, this level is the last level of DKCR to feature Rambi the Rhinoceros.


Overview

The level begins with the Kongs landing on a floor. Behind the Kongs, there is a cog-shaped object above the ground. Rambi can jump to this cog-shaped object, however, he is not yet gotten. Ahead of the Kongs, there is a large group of volcanic rocks, which the Kongs can stand on. The Kongs should jump on top of these volcanic rocks stacked together. Here, they can see a slightly taller group of volcanic rocks stacked together ahead of them. Between these two stacks of volcanic rocks, there is a Tiki Buzz hovering up and down. Beneath this Tiki Buzz, there is a DK Barrel. So, to get the DK Barrel, the Kongs must wait for the Tiki Buzz to get low enough for them to jump on it without getting hurt. After landing on the Tiki Buzz, they will be dropped down to the DK Barrel. Here, they can use the Barrel to unlock the aid of Diddy Kong, then they can jump back onto the first stack of volcanic rocks. Anyway, the Kongs should wait until when the Tiki Buzz gets low enough for them to jump to it. Here, they can high bounce on the enemy onto the next, taller stack of volcanic rocks. Here, the first thing the Kongs will see is a Tiki Buzz hovering up and down right next to the tall stack of volcanic rocks they're on. Ahead of this Tiki Buzz, a platform hovering over a gap can be seen ahead. On this platform there is a Tiki Goon, and above it there is a cog-shaped object that Rambi can jump to. So, from here, the Kongs should first wait for the Tiki Buzz to get low enough for them to jump past it. When the enemy gets low enough, the Kongs can jump and hover to the platform with the Tiki Goon on it. Here, the Kongs can jump to another, slightly higher platform hovering in the gap that holds three Bananas on it. Here, the Kongs can then jump to a third platform in the gap that holds a Tiki Goon walking back and forth on it. From here, the Kongs can jump onto a floor. Here, the apes will pass by two chains near the left edge of the floor before they find a platform attached to two chains holding an Animal Crate on it. This platform is above a strange object that has quite a yellow glow coming from above it. Well, the foreground is silhouetted however, this object is really a flat, trampoline-like, golden switch. WHAT?!!! IT'S WHAT?!!! WAHHHHHHHTTTT (it's spelled that way to be funny)?!!! However, this flat, trampoline-like, golden switch only needs to be pounded once, which is quite weird due to the fact that most of those switches must be pounded three times to take action. Anyway, the Kongs should go ahead and pound this switch. When it has been pounded, the part of floor beneath the two chains before this platform rises. Also, the platform holding the Animal Crate on it lowers. So, using this part of floor (which the apes should jump to) that rises, the Kongs can then jump to the platform with the Animal Crate on it. Now to free Rambi, the Kongs should jump on Rambi's Animal Crate and give it one pound. After pounding this Animal Crate once, the Kongs can find themselves on Rambi (Note: From here, when I, Smashbro8, say the Kongs, heroes, duo, etc, I mean the Kongs and Rambi). Now since the Kongs are on Rambi, let's go all the way back to the beginning of the level where the Kongs land. If the Kongs head back here and hit the cog-shaped object that was (or should we say "is") behind the Kong's landing point, they will make a rectangular pillar-like object rise up and reveal an area with nine collectibles in it. There are three rows and three columns of collectibles. Nearly all collectibles are Banana Bunches with the exception of a Puzzle Piece found in the middle of the second row of collectibles. Anyway, after this secret unlocked with Rambi, let's go to the cog-shaped object above the first platform hovering above the gap with the cog-shaped object above it. If the Kongs jump to this cog-shaped object (with Rambi), they will make a platform with four Banana Bunches above it appear above the floor right next to the DK Barrel. Now that we are done telling out those secrets, let's fast forward all the way back to the platform with the Animal Crate on it (which should be gone now) and the used, flat, trampoline-shaped, golden switch below it. Shortly after the Kongs pass this platform and the used, flat trampoline-shaped, golden switch below it, the Kongs will approach cog-shaped object hanging above the floor's right edge. If the Kongs and Rambi jump to and hit this cog-shaped object, it makes a platform attached to two chains fall into the gap just ahead. The Kongs can jump to this platform. Here, they can see a platform with a stack of volcanic rocks covering all of its top area. But there is a problem. THIS PLATFORM THE KONGS ARE ON CANNOT HOLD THEM FOREVER!!! As soon as the apes jump to this platform, it moves down a bit. Shortly after doing so, the platform shakes and rapidly falls into the abyss below. So, to avoid being carried into the abyss, losing an Extra Life Balloon, and restarting the level from the beginning, the Kongs should quickly jump to this platform with the volcanic rocks on it. As soon as Kongs land here, they will knock down all of the volcanic rocks here. Here, the Kongs will see a platform ahead in the gap with a Tiki Goon on it. So the Kongs can jump here. They do not have to aim to land on the Tiki Goon, for Rambi will defeat it as soon as he touches it. Now, from here, the Kongs can see a floor ahead with some volcanic rocks stacked together (one stack is higher than the other; it is the one closest to the Kongs) at its left edge. The letter K of the K-O-N-G Letters is above the highest stack of volcanic rocks. So, first of all, the Kongs should jump here. Yes, this does destroy the volcanic rocks the letter K is above, but there is still another way to grab it. The Kongs can simply jump to it. Now after the letter K has been collected, the Kongs can plow through the next pile of volcanic rocks right next to the destroyed ones the letter K once was above. Immediately after this, the Kongs will approach a Tiki Tank walking about. There is a Tiki Buzz moving left to right above the Tiki Tank. Ahead of these two enemies there are two stacks of volcanic rocks attached to each other. The first (closest) stack is very tall and has a Puzzle Piece above it. The stack next to it is much smaller. It is so small that it cannot be used to climb atop this tall stack of volcanic rocks. So, how do you get this Puzzle Piece. It is very challenging to get, however, listen to these steps carefully. The Tiki Tank can be defeated, however the Tiki Buzz should not. The heroes should hit the tall stack of volcanic rocks, destroying it. Now after this has been done, the heroes should dismount Rambi (press the Z button on the Nunchuk if playing with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk or the B button on the Wii Remote) and jump on the smaller stack of volcanic rocks that was once attached to the taller stack of volcanic rocks. Here, they roll-jump to the Tiki Buzz moving left to right behind them. As soon as the apes land on the enemy, they should high bounce on it and head right. If done successfully, the apes will collect the Puzzle Piece. If you failed to collect this Puzzle Piece, commit suicide. Naww, just kidding. Exit (Quit) the level and restart again. Anyway, after the Kongs collect the Puzzle Piece (after you get back onto Rambi), the first thing they will approach is a Tiki Goon (unless it has passed them), which they can defeat by simply walking/dashing through it. Shortly after the Tiki Goon, the Kongs will approach a Tiki Tank that can also be defeated with a touch (only on Rambi. The same goes for other enemies). Shortly after the Kongs pass this defeated enemy, they can plow through some two more stacks of volcanic rocks. Like before, the first (closest) stack of volcanic rocks is the one higher than the other one attached to it. Immediately after the heroes plow through the second stack of volcanic rocks, they will approach a gap with a Tiki Buzz hovering up and down above it. To the right of the Tiki Buzz, there is a platform hanging above the gap that has its top covered entirely of a tall stack of volcanic rocks. The apes can simply jump through the Tiki Buzz, defeating it, and land onto this platform above the gap. They will automatically knock down all the volcanic rocks in this tall stack. Here, the Kongs can find another Tiki Buzz hovering up and down above the gap right after this platform they are on. Also, there is a platform with three Bananas on it after this Tiki Buzz. The Kongs can jump to this platform without worrying about the Tiki Buzz (unless they aren't on Rambi). Here, the Kongs can see a platform with three Bananas and a Tiki Goon on it ahead. There is a space (or small gap, whatever you want to call it) between these two platforms. Above the small gap/space, there is a rock on the ceiling with a red hole on its base. WAIT!!! DON'T EVEN THINK OF JUMPING TO THE NEXT PLATFORM!!! This red hole slowly drops out large droplets of lava. Well, what do we mean by slowly? Have you seen a droplet of water fall from a ceiling or other surface before? Do you see how slowly the droplet falls? Well, this is almost exactly how these holes perform their actions. Touching a large droplet of lava defeats the Kongs instantly with one touch. Also, when we say large droplet don't think the size of a raindrop! We're talking large droplets the size of the Kongs probably! So, the Kongs should first wait for the lava hole to drop lava. Immediately after it drops lava into the gap, the Kongs should quickly jump to the next platform, which holds three Bananas on it. Here, the Kongs can see a platform with a stack of volcanic rocks on it ahead. Above the gap before this platform, there is another lava hole on the base of a rock. The Kongs should wait for this lava hole to drop a droplet of lava and then quickly jump to the next platform. The Kongs will destroy the volcanic rocks on this platform. Here, the Kongs can see a large platform ahead. The Kongs can jump here to find two lava holes above the platform. The first lava hole is above the center of this platform. The second lava hole is to the right of the first above the right edge of the platform. So the Kongs are still safe. Also, these lava holes perform in order. The first one will drop a large droplet of lava and then the second lava hole will drop a large droplet of lava after it. So the Kongs should wait for the two lava holes to drop a large droplet of lava. When the second lava hole drops a large droplet of lava, the apes should immediately run/roll to the end of this platform and quickly jump to a platform attached to two chains that hangs above a small gap. Here on this platform, the Kongs can move to its right edge to find a floor with a lava hole above its left edge. After the lava hole, there are two stacks of volcanic rocks. The first (closest) stack of volcanic rocks, this time, is smaller than the one after it. The one after it is slightly higher and holds a Tiki Tank and the letter O on it. The Tiki Tank will drop onto the first stack of volcanic rocks and it will continue heading forward. However, because this lava hole is before the two stacks of volcanic rocks and to the left edge of the floor, the Kongs should wait for it to drop a large droplet of lava. When it does so, the Kongs should quickly jump to the floor and destroy the first stack of volcanic rocks here. This way the apes are past the lava hole above the floor's left edge. The Tiki Tank may approach the Kongs, however it will be defeated by Rambi when it hits it. However, if the apes want to collect the letter O, they should not destroy the second stack of volcanic rocks that was once taller than the now destroyed first set of volcanic rocks. So, to collect the letter O, the Kongs should jump in the air. As soon as the apes jump, they should dismount Rambi and head right. If done correctly, the Kongs can find themselves on top of the second stack of volcanic rocks. Here, they can jump to the letter O. After it has been collected, the apes can jump back onto Rambi and head through this second stack of volcanic rocks. However, there isn't much to go after the second stack of volcanic rocks. In fact, there's not even one piece of solid ground the apes can move on after the second stack of volcanic rocks. Why? BECAUSE THERE IS A SMALL GAP AFTER IT!!! Wow, anyway, in the gap, there is a Tiki Buzz hovering up and down. After the Tiki Buzz and the gap, there is a platform only large enough to hold the Tutorial Pig who hosts the checkpoint and a tad bit more. So, right on the right edge of the floor where the two stacks of volcanic rocks were, the Kongs should jump to this small platform that holds the checkpoint on it. Here, they automatically activate the checkpoint. However, that's not what I, Smashbro8, was really going to talk about. Instead, let's look at what's after this platform. If the Kongs head to the platform's right edge (which isn't much movement to be made at all), they can find a small gap with a Tiki Buzz hovering up and down in it. After the gap, there is a floor with an Animal Crate and probably more ahead (since the Animal Crate can only be seen from the platform/gap). The Kongs can jump to this floor. Here, the Kongs can head past the Animal Crate (if they need to use it, they can jump on the crate and pound it to get back Rambi) and head to this floor's right edge. From here, the Kongs can

The Kongs and Rambi smash through some volcanic rocks in a stack on a platform. Even though the location of this picture is complicated, this picture most likely takes place before the first quite large platform that slowly falls into the abyss when the Kongs jump on it.

find a platform with a tall stack of volcanic rocks on it. They should jump here. Here, the Kongs can see another platform with a tall stack of volcanic rocks on it. The Kongs should jump here. Now, from here, they can find a quite large platform that has not been seen before in this level. A Tiki Tank roams about this platform and claims its "territory". Anyway, the Kongs can jump to this platform. Ahhh, we're safe now. Are you?! Suddenly, the platform begins to shake and slowly moves down into the abyss. Oh no! IT'S FALLING!!! IT'S FALLING!!! So, quickly, the Kongs should move to the right edge of this platform and jump to another similar platform that holds a stack of volcanic rocks with a Tiki Goon on them. Because this platform also slowly starts to fall into the abyss below, the Kongs should quickly head to the right edge of this platform and jump/drop to another similar platform below them slightly to the right. A Tiki Tank walks about on this platform. Here, since this platform is falling into the abyss slowly, the Kongs should quickly run to the right edge of this platform and jump to a cog-shaped object in the air after it. When the Kongs hit this cog-shaped object, it causes a platform attached to two chains to fall above the abyss. The Kongs should jump here. Uh oh! It's that platform that moves down a bit and then quickly heads into the abyss! No, not that platform! Not again! So, the Kongs should quickly run to the right edge of this platform and jump over a gap with a Tiki Buzz in it onto a platform with a Tiki Goon on it. This platform the Kongs are now on slowly falls into the abyss as soon as they step on it, just like the previous three. A cog-shaped object is above the right side of this platform. So, the Kongs should quickly jump to this cog-shaped object. This causes a platform attached to two chains to fall above the gap ahead. The Kongs can jump to this platform. However, because it is the type of platform that moves down a bit and swiftly falls into the abyss, the Kongs should quickly head to the right edge of this platform and jump to a platform with three Bananas on it. Here, the Kongs are safe from any danger, for this platform does not fall into the abyss below in any way. From here, however, the Kongs can find a very small gap with a Tiki Buzz hovering up and down above it. After this small gap, there is a floor with, so far, a Tiki Goon on it. The Kongs can jump to this floor. If they move a bit, they will notice another Tiki Goon plus a Tiki Tank in front of it nearing them. Above the Kongs are two rings of Bananas moving in a circular motion. Well, it is hard to understand by saying that, but let's bring up some things seen earlier that are related to these Bananas moving in a circular motion. Do you remember the type of Bonus Room game that involves the Kongs collecting Bananas, Banana Bunches and Banana Coins moving in a circular motion at different paces? These Bananas moving in a circular motion operate just like those ones in that type of Bonus Room. Wait! We got one even better. Let's go back all the way into the Forest's third level, Flutter Flyaway. Near the end of Flutter Flyaway, there are many rings of Bananas that move in a circular motion. These rings of Bananas from Flutter Flyaway are closely related to what you see here (the rings of Bananas moving in a circular motion). Yep, so next time your Biology teacher asks you to give an example of a level of classification, you can say the rings of Bananas from Smokey Peak, the ones from Flutter Flyaway, and the type of Bonus Room that features the large rings of Bananas, Banana Bunches and Banana Coins from Donkey Kong Country Returns are all related. So, that level of classification would be a "Family". LOL (slang term for "laughing out loud"), wooooowwwwww!! Don't ever tell your teacher that, she'll/he'll look at you strange! Anyway, the Bananas in this ring move in opposite directions (clockwise and counterclockwise; the largest, outer ring moves counterclockwise and the ring inside it moves clockwise). Anyway, the Kongs can simply jump up and down repeatedly to collect these Bananas in the ring. They should not have to worry about the Tiki Tank and Tiki Goon nearing them (unless you do not have Rambi. If that is so, you should defeat the enemies and continue jumping). If all Bananas in both rings are collected, a Puzzle Piece appears for them to collect. After the Puzzle Piece has been collected, the apes should head to the right edge of this floor. Here, they can find a small gap with a Tiki Buzz hovering up and down in it. After the small gap, there is a platform that, this time, does not hold three Bananas on it. The Kongs can jump to this platform. Here, they can see a floor with two sets of volcanic rocks on its left edge. The first set of volcanic rocks is taller than the one after it, which is attached to it. Anyway, the Kongs can jump here, causing the first set of volcanic rocks to break. From here, (even though there are weird plants closer in the foreground), some more stacks of volcanic rocks and a Tiki Tank can be seen ahead. The Tiki Tank is nearing the Kongs from behind the second stack of volcanic rocks. Anyway, the Kongs can plow through the second stack of volcanic rocks plus the Tiki Tank, only to come up to three more stacks of volcanic rocks. The first two stacks are on the floor, while the third is on a higher part of floor attached to this floor. A Tiki Goon walks toward the Kongs from the third stack of volcanic rocks. The second stack of volcanic rocks is higher than both the first and the third stack of volcanic rocks. The third stack of volcanic rocks is really the same size as the first one, however, because it is on a higher part of floor, it is as high as the second stack of volcanic rocks. A Tiki Tank is after the third set of volcanic rocks. So, the Kongs should plow through the first two stacks of volcanic rocks. After this has been done, they can jump up to the higher part of floor and plow through the third stack of volcanic rocks plus the Tiki Tank behind it. After this, however, the Kongs will immediately approach a stack of volcanic rocks that is taller than the first and third stacks of volcanic rocks just encountered and destroyed, yet it is not tall enough to be classified as a tall stack of volcanic rocks. So, let's just say its the size of the second stack of volcanic rocks just encountered and destroyed. A Tiki Tank is behind this stack of volcanic rocks. Behind and above the Tiki Tank slightly to the right is a cog-shaped object. The Kongs can plow through this stack of volcanic rocks, defeat the Tiki Tank by ramming into it, and jump to this cog-shaped object. However, a few more of the floor is still seen. So where will this platform created by the cog-shaped object appear? Well, it appears above the gap seen ahead. A platform will be found above the gap ahead and it holds a Puzzle Piece on it. Anyway, after the Kongs can plow through one more stack of volcanic rocks before they jump over the gap the platform created by the cog-shaped object appears over, and land onto a medium-sized platform with a DK Barrel on it. Here, the Kongs can notice a lava hole dropping a large droplet of lava constantly from above the platform's right edge. However, as long as they are not on this platform's right edge (which most likely they aren't), then are safe from harm. Now here, let's focus on how to get that Puzzle Piece on the platform attached to two chains that has been pulled down above the gap before the Kongs. This is the platform that was just created when they hit the previous cog-shaped object. To get onto this platform, the Kongs should first move to the platform's left edge (the one they are on, which holds a DK Barrel on it). Here, they should now jump and quickly dismount Rambi. If done correctly, the apes can find themselves on top of the platform where they can jump to reach the Puzzle Piece here. From here, the Kongs can then jump back onto Rambi after collecting the Puzzle Piece. Now the Kongs must wait on the lava hole above this platform's right edge to drop a large droplet of lava (this is the platform with the DK Barrel on it, not the one that has/had the Puzzle Piece above it). After it has done so, the Kongs can quickly head to the right edge of this floor, jump over the small gap after it, and then land on a floor with the Tutorial Pig hosting the second checkpoint on it. Here, the Kongs can head to the checkpoint and activate it (which is activated by touching it, you should know that :p). Anyway, the Kongs can see from the checkpoint that there is a lava hole above the floor's right edge. It is constantly and very slowly dropping large droplets of lava. The Kongs should wait for this lava hole to drop a large droplet of lava. After it does so, the Kongs should quickly head to the right edge of this floor and quickly jump over a small gap onto a medium-sized platform with an Animal Crate on it. The Kongs can head to the right edge of this platform where they can find a lava hole above a gap. But, there is something fishy about this lava hole. Yeah, it looks just like any other lava hole, so what? But what if its look is not what is fishy? (Your Response) ..............? Anyway, if the Kongs watch this lava hole, they can notice some red flame-like smoke come from this lava hole. Soon, this lava hole pours out some lava and stops. Wow! What just happened there!? Look's like someone really had to hit the toilet! Lol, anyway, so it is the way this lava hole performs that is fishy. As you can see, it is different from the others because it pours lava instead of drops a large droplet of lava. Also these types of lava holes that pour lava are much wider in length than the ones that drop a large droplet of lava. To the right of this lava hole, there is what looks like a wall. However, if the Kongs look at the middle of this "wall", they can notice that it is made up of volcanic rocks. This middle of the "wall" is the key to get past it and proceed. So first, the Kongs should wait on the lava hole before this "wall" to pour lava and stop. As soon as it stops, they should jump to the stack of volcanic rocks inside the middle of the wall. However, something bad happens. What happens if you have a stack of objects and you take the objects in the middle out? Well, the ones on top fall down right? So, that is what is happening. As soon as the stack of volcanic rocks is destroyed, the upper part of the "wall" falls. If the Kongs are caught between the two parts and crushed, they will lose an Extra Life Balloon and must restart from the checkpoint just passed. So, to avoid being crushed, the Kongs should quickly get out of here by jumping over a small gap with a Tiki Buzz in it onto a safe platform that holds three Bananas and a Tiki Goon on it. The Kongs do not have to aim to land on the Tiki Buzz, for Rambi will defeat it when it walks into him (only do not aim to land on the enemy if on Rambi). From here the apes can see a small gap ahead with a lava hole above it that pours out lava. After this small gap, there is a platform that normally has three Bananas on it, but this one does not. Above this platform with nothing on it (wow, they had "naked" platforms! Just kidding, there is always many "naked" platforms in majority of the levels of DKCR), there is a lava hole that slowly drops a large droplet of lava constantly onto it. Wow, this area is tricky! So here's what the Kongs must look for as both of these lava holes perform their actions. The Kongs should let them do what they do (wait on them) until there is a point where the first lava hole, which pours out lava, is pouring lava and the second lava hole next to it drops a large droplet of lava shortly after. So basically what you are waiting for is a point where both lava holes are performing before they end. However, let's add one thing before this point comes. The first lava hole, which pours out lava, drops out the letter N as soon as all of the lava has been poured out of it. So to get the letter N, the heroes would have to jump to the platform with the second lava hole above it at a safe time as soon as the lava stops pouring out of the first hole. Anyway, when this point comes where both lava holes perform before they stop, the Kongs can then safely jump to the platform with the second lava hole above it. Now from here, the Kongs can see a "wall" with volcanic rocks in the middle of it ahead. Quickly before the lava hole above the platform they are on drops a large droplet of lava, the Kongs should jump to the middle of this "wall". They will get rid of the volcanic rocks as soon as they land here, so you know what that means. Yep, ESCAPE OR DIE!!! So, this basically means to quickly jump from here onto a platform that holds three Bananas on it. Here, the Kongs can see a lava hole that pours lava above a small gap ahead. To the right of this lava hole, there is another "wall" with a stack of volcanic rocks in its middle. So, first, the Kongs should wait for this lava hole to pour some lava out and stop. When it stops, they should quickly jump to the stack of volcanic rocks in the wall's center. Since we already know that we are in danger here, we jump from the center of this "wall" to a platform that has a Tiki Goon on it instead of three Bananas. Here, the Kongs can see another lava hole that drops a large droplet of lava onto a platform below it constantly. Since this lava hole is above the left edge of the platform below it, the heroes should wait for it to drop a large droplet of lava. When it does so and stops, the Kongs should quickly jump to this platform and head to its right edge. Here, there is a cog-shaped object above this platform's right edge. But there is one problem. THIS PLATFORM IS FALLING!!! IT'S FALLING!!! Oh no, don't tell me this is the type of platform that slowly falls into the abyss, is it? Too bad! You're out of luck! It is that type of platform, however, if you hurry we can get off this platform safely. Anyway, if the Kongs jump to the cog-shaped object right before the platform heads into the abyss, they can create a platform attached to two chains, which appears above the gap to their right. Here, the Kongs can head to this platform's right edge. Several "walls" can be seen ahead, however, instead of having a stack of volcanic rocks in their center, these walls have a stack of volcanic rocks as their base. But this is a platform with two chains attached to its edges. Tsk, tsk!! This is the platform that moves down a bit when landed on and dashes into the abyss! OH GOSH!!! QUICKLY, JUMP TO THE FIRST "WALL'S" STACK OF VOLCANIC ROCKS IN ITS BASE!!! Here, the Kongs can quickly dash through four "walls" before they crush the player, break the part of floor beneath them and drop them into the abyss. After the fifth "wall" with a stack volcanic rocks in its base, the Kongs can quickly jump over a small gap and head through two more "walls" with a stack volcanic rocks in their base. Immediately after these two "walls" with a stack of volcanic rocks in their bases, the Kongs can head througha trail of four Bananas. Immediately after these three Bananas, the Kongs can head down a large U-shaped valley, plowing through two Tiki Buzzes, a long trail of Bananas, and a Tiki Tank before they reach the top of this valley. Also, the floor begins to crack and fall behind the Kongs, so Rambi must constantly be running from here on (to run fast/dash with Rambi, shake the Wii Remote and Nunchuk). After the Kongs reach the very top of this U-shaped valley on its other side, they will end up plowing through two more "walls" with a stack of volcanic rocks in their base. Immediately after the apes plow through these two "walls" with a stack of volcanic rocks in their base, the heroes can jump over a small gap and land on a small floor heading down a downwards slope. Here, the Kongs can dash and plow through a trail of five Bananas and a Tiki Tank before they jump over a small gap and land on a small floor made up of two platforms. The letter G is on the first platform, however, since the apes will pass this platform it is on, due to the fact that they basically did a long jump over it, they will have to jump to the letter G and back onto the second platform before they break and fall. From the second platform, the apes can jump to a "wall" with a stack of volcanic rocks in its base and dash and plow through two more "walls" with a stack of volcanic rocks in their base. Immediately after the third "wall" with a stack of volcanic rocks in its base, the Kongs can jump over a small gap with a Tiki Buzz in it and dash up a floor going upwards slightly diagonally. On the way up, the Kongs will plow through a Tiki Tank and a Tiki Goon just before they jump over another small gap with a Tiki Buzz in it and land onto a large platform attached to two chains. WAIT!!! This platform doesn't fall into the abyss; the Slot Machine Barrel is above it! Phew! That was a lot of dashing and plowing! But, DON'T YOU DARE JUMP TO THAT SLOT MACHINE BARREL JUST YET!!! There is a secret here. To get to this secret, the first thing the Kongs should do is dismount Rambi. Now after this has been done, the Kongs can move to or close to this platform's right edge. Now they should roll-jump and hover over the gap to land on a hidden platform with a Puzzle Piece above it. Here, the Kongs can jump and collect the Puzzle Piece. After the Puzzle Piece is collected, the apes can roll-jump and hover back to the large platform with the Slot Machine Barrel above it. Now they can jump to the level's Slot Machine Barrel. When the Slot Machine Barrel has been hit, the level is complete! Did you get the DK logo? Just kidding! Wonder what Bobbing Basalt is like?


Secrets

K-O-N-G Letters

  • K:
    640px-SmokeyPeak265-1-

    Rambi and the Kongs are about to jump over the letter G. Jump over the letter G?! They are supposed to go back to it and collect it!

    The letter K is above a stack of volcanic rocks near the beginning of the level. This stack of volcanic rocks is located right after some swaying platforms above the abyss right after the first platform that moves down a bit when landed on and dashes into the abyss afterward. The Kongs can simply jump to the letter K to obtain it.
  • O: The letter O is on top of a stack of volcanic rocks attached to a lower one on its left right after the first group of lava holes before the first checkpoint. When the apes jump to the floor with these two stacks of volcanic rocks located here, they should destroy the first stack of volcanic rocks attached to the one with the letter O on top of it to its right. However, they should not destroy the second stack of volcanic rocks. Instead, the apes should come close to it and jump in the air. As soon as they jump in the air, they should dismount Rambi and move right to land on top of this stack of volcanic rocks, collecting the letter O as they land here.
  • N: Shortly after the second checkpoint in the level, the heroes can notice a lava hole that pours out lava next to one that drops a large droplet of lava. The letter N comes out after all of the poured lava from this lava hole has been poured out. It is tricky to get since it comes directly after all the lava, however, if the Kongs jump into the gap that the lava is poured from right when the amount of lava decreases to small droplets, they can collect the letter N. However, they must make sure they land on the platform with the next lava hole that drops a large droplet of lava does not drop lava on them!
  • G: Once the floor starts to fall behind the Kongs in the air where Rambi must be dashing nonstop, there is the letter G after a small gap. If the Kongs jump over the gap and quickly run back to the letter G, they can collect it. They can then hurry up and dash before the falling floor carries them into the abyss.

Puzzle Pieces

  1. Smokey Peak 11

    The Kongs open the wall that has the first Puzzle Piece in it.

    Once the Kongs let loose Rambi from the first Animal Crate in the level, they should make their way back to where they landed at the start of the level to find a cog-shaped object in the air. If the Kongs and Rambi hit this cog-shaped object, it opens up the wall in behind them. The Kongs can then move forward inside of it to collect many Banana Bunches and a Puzzle Piece.
  2. Shortly after Rambi's first Animal Crate in the level and the letter K, the Kongs can reach a floor with a Tiki Tank on the ground, a Tiki Buzz hovering left to right above it and two stacks of volcanic rocks ahead. The first stack of volcanic rocks is very tall and has a Puzzle Piece above it. The second stack is much shorter. The Kongs can defeat the Tiki Goon, but not the Tiki Buzz. They should also destroy the first, very tall stack of volcanic rocks, but not the second stack. So, if done correctly, all that should be here are a Tiki Buzz, a small stack of volcanic rocks and a Puzzle Piece high in the air. The Kongs should now dismount Rambi and jump on top of the small stack of volcanic rocks. From here, the Kongs can roll jump to the Tiki Buzz and high bounce off of it. If done correctly, the apes can head towards the Puzzle Piece while high in the air.
  3. Shortly after the letter O, the Kongs can come up to a safe platform with two rings of Bananas moving in a circular motion above its left side. If the Kongs collect all Bananas in the two rings, a Puzzle Piece is awarded to them.
  4. Shortly after this third Puzzle Piece, the apes and Rambi can hit a cog-shaped object, causing a platform with a Puzzle Piece on it to fall over a small gap. After the small gap is a floor. The heroes should jump onto the floor. From here, they should jump towards the platform and dismount Rambi. If done correctly, the apes will end up on this platform and collect the Puzzle Piece on it. The heroes can then jump back on Rambi.
  5. At the end of the level on the platform with the Slot Machine Barrel above it, the heroes can dismount Rambi. They can then roll-jump and hover off the platform's right edge to reach a platform attached to two chains that holds a Puzzle Piece on it. The heroes can collect the Puzzle Piece here and then roll-jump and hover back to the platform with the Slot Machine Barrel on it.

Trivia

  • If the Kongs drop inside the abysses here, it sounds as if they landed in Lava due to the sound they make, however, there is no sign of lava there.
  • This level is one of the few levels in DKCR to not have a Bonus Room. It turns out that every silhoutted level in the game has no Bonus Room, for Sunset Shore and Foggy Fumes also have no Bonus Room.
