Game Donkey Kong Land

Skyscraper Caper is the fifth of Big Ape City. It proceeds the level Fast Barrel Blast.


Diddy finds some Banana Bunches at the bottom of some rope.

Skyscraper Caper takes place in the housing complexes of Big Ape City, and features unique ropes that will making Donkey Kong or Diddy Kong descend or ascend upon grabbing. The ropes function almost identically to the ones seen in a level of the original Donkey Kong Country, in the stage Slipslide Ride. Similar to the ropes in Slipside Ride, DK/Diddy can try to fight the direction they're being forced to move in, and must use these ropes to cross bottomless pits. One major difference from the ropes seen in Slipside Ride are the fact that certain ropes have Slippa slithering down them, posing as obstacles. Zinger enemies are also obstacles mid-air. Some items, such as KONG Letters or Banana Bunches, can be found by riding certain ropes to their end.

Getting to the end of Skyscraper Caper unlocks Button Barrel Blast.



Donkey Kong holds onto a rope, which brings him toward the "K" Letter.
  • DK Barrels: 4
  • Extra Life Balloon: 1
  • K-O-N-G Letters:
    • K: Found by riding the rope at the beginning upward.
    • O: Found by riding a rope downward.
    • N: In the bonus room.
    • G: In a rope climbing segment near the end of the stage.
