Clingy Swingy is the second level of the Forest area in Donkey Kong Country Returns. It is unlocked after finishing Vine Valley. Upon finishing the level, there is a fork in the road; Flutter Flyaway can be played by taking the upwards path, and Springy Spores can be played by taking the lower right road.
Clingy Swingy is a forest level which heavily utilizes the Cling ability. Large logs and huts with grassy outlines can be clinged on to, and swung across gaps. Various platforms with grassy parts can be climbed across as well. Cling Cobra snake enemies patrol the clingable areas, and Toothberry are found on the walking parts. Also, a few Spore Chomp plants and Squeekly bats will force Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong to plan out their advance to avoid the projectiles and enemies.
