Game Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!


Floodlit Fish is the third level of Razor Ridge in Donkey Kong Country 3, and 28th level overall. It is within a pool of water below Kong-Fused Cliffs.

Description

The beginning of the level. It is not illuminated, making it difficult to see.

Floodlit Fish is an underwater level that is quite dark. Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong must transform into Enguarde the Swordfish via its Animal Barrel, and use its bill stab attack to hit Gleamin' Bream enemies, who will illuminate the level upon being hit. Over time, the light provided by Gleamin' Bream will fade away, and another one must be hit in order to procure illumination. The level's gimmick is similar in style to the level Loopy Lights from the original Donkey Kong Country. Lurchin enemies will be found aplenty, swimming through narrow vertical passageways or being dormant in the water, and Koco enemies will also be found. At a couple of points in the level, there will be more than one path to take, and select routes will lead to items such as KONG Letters, Bananas or Bonus Barrels.

Much later into the level, Enguarde will pass a No Animal Sign and Dixie/Kiddy will swim into a small cave. In this cave, they will blast through a Barrel Cannon to land near a Koin and the End of Level Flag. Beyond this level is Pot Hole Panic.

Enemies

Items

The "N" Letter is below a pair of Lurchin.

Bonus Levels

  • Collect 90 Stars! -- The first Bonus Barrel is guarded by a red Koco found by taking a detour. Ninety stars are laid out in a dark open area. There are no enemies, and thirty seconds are provided. In the Game Boy Advance remake, the bonus room was changed -- The stars have been rearranged to be spread out throughout the room and the room was illuminated.
  • Collect 40 Stars! -- The second bonus barrel is below a pair of Lurchin found later in the level, when the path splits into three ways. Twenty seconds are given to follow a trail of forty stars in an unlit area. The GBA remake has the area illuminated.

Trivia

  • In the Game Boy Advance version of Donkey Kong Country 3, it is possible to get through the level without using a single Gleamin' Beam, as the GBA screen is much brighter than the Super Nintendo.
