Game Donkey Kong Country Returns

Canopy Cannons is a level featured in the Jungle of Donkey Kong Island. It is regarded as the fifth level of Donkey Kong Country Returns, but is optional; if Donkey Kong has a Map Key, he can instead access the fourth level of the game, Sunset Shore. This level or Sunset Shore can be finished to unlock Crazy Cart, the sixth level of the game.


The monkeys are launched from their barrel cannon.

In this level, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong will begin in the jungle, fighting off some Awk. Later they will need to use the Barrel Cannons to get over large gaps in the level. The Kongs can find hidden objects and collectibles on foot, and cross gaps on barrel cannons. On various occasions, the barrel cannons offer chances of Banana Coins and Extra Life Balloons if the do can time their launch right. Even Puzzle Pieces and KONG Letters are obtained by using the cannons' alternate shooting trajectories.

The level appears to be a tribute to Barrel Cannon Canyon.



In the bonus stage, the heroes must avoid the middle Barrel Cannon until they collect all the prizes.

  • Banana Coin: 8
  • Extra Life Balloon: 1
