Bramble Scramble is a level in the Bright Savannah world in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Its name is shared with a level in Donkey Kong Country 2 and another in Donkey Kong Land 2 but its design is different.
The level begins on a rock platform surrounded by large thick thorny vines that wrap themselves around parts of the level, and even the background. A short ways forward, the player will come across a ledge that only Dixie or Cranky can reach. To the right of the ledge is a small patch of thorns that only Cranky can safely cross, (though this can be jumped over). Above this patch is a dandelion platform, which can be used along with some others to reach the aforementioned ledge. Past this patch of spikes is another one, which has a dandelion platform over it, with a DK Barrel sitting on top. After this is a series of said platforms, along with a large vine with leaf platforms on it. These lead to a rock ledge which contains brambles that withdraw once the player gets close. Next is a series of mushrooms that can be bounced on. After this is another rock platform which leads to an Arrow Barrel with a skull on it, launching the Kongs into the background as soon as a thick wall of brambles clears the way.
After the first Tutorial Pig, the player(s) will cross over some leaf platforms, some bouncy mushrooms, and then another rock platform with some dead grass on it. The last patch of said grass has a buffalo enemy hiding it it, so caution is advised. All of this leads to a series Skull Barrels that launch the monkeys down through a downward gap in a large patch of brambles. Landing safely on a rock with hedgehog enemies on it, the simians continue to the second checkpoint, followed by some rising and lowering rock platforms, and a Skull Barrel which must be carefully used as the patch of brambles ahead opens and closes constantly. A series of these leads to the level's Slot Machine Barrel.
