Game Donkey Kong Country Returns
<< List of Levels >>

Vine Valley is the first level of the Forest level of Donkey Kong Country Returns. It is named after the third world in the original Donkey Kong Country, Vine Valley.


Vine Valley starts out near some crystals underground, showing the location is still in the Cave area. By going up via the bouncy mushrooms and barrel cannons, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong will enter the deep forest of Vine Valley. The Kongs will have to go through the forest by walking across trees, swinging on vines, and clinging on grass. This forest has plenty of hidden areas, obstructed by plantlife and such. The enemy cast here is basic; some Tiki Goon are around for the ground segments and Tiki Buzz for the vine swing areas. Chomps can be found here in various forms, and must be avoided.
