Game Donkey Kong Country Returns

Tidal Terror is the seventh and the final regular level of the Beach area in Donkey Kong Country Returns. Upon completion of the level, the Scurvy Crew can be confronted.


A wave breaks apart a wall of rocks behind Donkey Kong. A Snaps is below him.

Tidal Terror appears to take place shortly after Stormy Shore, given the foreboding and eerie setting as opposed to typical Beach levels on bright, sunny and relaxing scenarios. As the level title suggests, the main feature of this level is in fact tidal waves. Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong need to get to the other side of the beach and not get swept away from the giant tidal waves ravaging the shoreline. Luckily, some large rock pillars can be used as cover to protect the heroes from the waves. Some pillars have to be Ground Pounded up, as indicated by a large red button where the pillar will be sprung up when pounded. The duo will have to run from cover to cover making sure to avoid the waves and various Snaps and Pinchleys.
