Game Donkey Kong Land 2

Toxic Tower is the last regular level of K. Rool's Keep. The final stage of the area, Stronghold Showdown, comes after this level.


Squitter makes a web platform to gain height.

Toxic Tower takes place at the top of K. Rool's Keep, within a castle that is being filled with acid. Thus, this level is essentially a race to the top of the tower. Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong must climb chains and jump on platforms to get above the rising acid. Luckily, there are various Animal Buddies that can be used throughout the level to make the climb easier. First, Squitter the Spider can be used. He can make web platforms to ascend. Next, Rattly the Rattlesnake can use his enhanced jumps to get to higher platforms quickly and efficiently. At certain points, Rattly will have to use a charged jump, done by holding "Select" and releasing after a second, to continue in the level. Past the Star Barrel is where Diddy or Dixie can transform into Squawks the Parrot, who has the most straightforward segment of the level; he can simply fly upward to safety. At the end of the stage, there is some chain climbing to do. If the heroes are fast enough, they can grab two Extra Life Balloons before they fly away at the Exit Target.
