Game Donkey Kong Land

Swirlwind Storm is the last regular level of Kremlantis in Donkey Kong Land, following the level Nautilus Chase.


Diddy gets boosted to a Kong Token.

Swirlwind Storm is a temple level that primarily features unique enemy; the Swirlwind are gusts of wind that can be jumped off of for a boost, but also can be harmful if walked into. The Swirlwind are common and can be used to jump gaps, avoid enemies, and reach hidden areas. They have a tendency to "follow" Donkey Kong and/or Diddy Kong, which can be helpful or detrimental. Sometimes the Swirlwind occupy an area where a KONG Letter can be obtained, and since they cannot be defeated, must be distracted out of the item's path. The other enemies in this level include Zingers, Kritters, Army, and Slippa.

The next level is the boss level, Sea-bed Showdown.
