Bonus Area #2
It may be tempting to aim for the 1-Up
Balloon or Winky Token, but this Bonus
Area holds a very tricky secret for those
willing to forgo a quick reward...
Matching three single bananas in this
Bonus Area will reward you with not a
banana, but a regular throwable barrel.
This barrel can be used to access a
fiendishly well-hidden Bonus Area within
this Bonus Area!
The Bonus round will end as soon as the
barrel breaks (or when the lead Kong
lands, if they're in midair), so the best
way to access the next Bonus Area is to
carry the barrel right and jump against
the right wall, making sure to jump before
making contact with the wall.
This technique will reveal the hidden
entrance to Bonus Area #3, and
the Kong(s) will immediately enter!
Bonus Area #3
Perhaps the game's best-hidden Bonus Area (a Bonus within a Bonus?!), here you'll have the chance to earn Extra Life Balloons of increasing value over three 'spelling bee' rounds.
1. DONKEY (1-Up Balloon)
2. KONG (2-Up Balloon)
3. COUNTRY (3-Up Balloon)
