Button Bash is a ruins level featuring various puzzles revolving around pressing buttons and barrel blasting. Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong will start outside of a temple and can use a Barrel Cannon to get inside. Stilts, Tiki Tanks, and Humzees will be encountered when they first enter. The heroes will have to ascend to the upper parts of the ruins to get to a section where they need to defeat some Humzee and use a barrel cannon to break through the ground into the lower area.

At the lower level, Donkey and Diddy will run into Tiki Goons and Tiki Zings. Beyond the Tikis, they will have to use the barrel cannons to launch themselves into a button to activate another barrel cannon. As they progress forward they will encounter some Tiki Torches. After the torches, DK and Diddy can use a barrel cannon to reach the checkpoint and go to another barrel blasting section. A button will have to be pressed to activate some more usable barrel cannons. The second checkpoint will be activated after finishing the barrel blast section, and then the heroes can move on to defeat some Stilts and jump on some panels to get higher up. The remaining part of the level is using the barrel cannons to get to the finish.



The second bonus level has two banana coins and an extra life available.
