Crash's attacks are reduced to just one button. With his rotation (Tornado Spin), he can smash boxes placed along the way, and kill enemies. The game presents a lot of types of opponents and boxes, each of which will need to search for a suitable key (for example, red boxes marked TNT should not be destroyed by their rotation). In the boxes lie the fruits of the bag, which the hero can eat along the way, additional lives, and also protecting masks. In addition, boxes with an image of the letter "C" (English Checkpoint) may appear on the faces: if they are broken, then if life is lost, you can return to the place where the box was broken. By collecting all the boxes on the level and not losing a single life, you will be awarded a precious stone. After you collect all the stones, you will open a secret ending. The game has a lot of bonus levels, where you can easily earn extra wagers and lives, as well as meet with Tavna. Going to her, you can get a save point of the game. There are also special sophisticated bonuses Cortex and Brio. After the first, you can get the gold keys to the secret levels, and after the second, you will not lose lives at this level in the event of the death of Crash.

Somewhere in Australia, the scientist Dr. Neo Cortex conducts experiments in his laboratory on a captured animal, Crash. He does this in order to realize his dream - to create an army and enslave the whole world. He aims at the unfortunate bandicoot a cannon, called Evolvo Ray, capable, according to legend, to give animals human abilities, but by some coincidence, the gun does not have time to complete its process and the main character escapes. Apparently, instead of Crash leading the army of Dr. Cortex and thinking for hours about the tactics of carrying out his dreams, the poor fellow, on the contrary, is deprived of his last brains and loses his speech. However, the doctor is not so stupid as to ignore Plan B. He kidnapped the girl Crash, Tawna.

How to make your life easier. The easiest and safest way to get yourself extra lives you can use right at the beginning of the game. And do not need to enter special codes and look for any items. Just start the game and collect all the fruits of Vumba from two boxes - jumpers and from one box "?". After that, press Start, then Select - and go outside the map. Now go back to the first level and reassemble the Fruits from these three boxes.
Remember that for 100 fruits Wumba is given an extra life. Of course, this takes time, I want to start the game as soon as possible. But the truth is, it is better to collect more lives than to die without going through the level. And then, because without any risk!
"About Fruits." At each level, you need to collect all the fruits of Vumba. They not only bring you closer to extra life; if you do not die at this stage, they will allow you to access the secret territories of other levels with the help of Gems. But to collect fruit from boxes - jumpers need from the first call. If you need two or three jumps, you will lose some of the fruit. As in the whole game, here the saving of time is encouraged.
Additional assistance. On some levels, the Crash comes across long poles (for example, in Heavy Machinery), and sometimes rope bridges (at the level of Road to Nowhere). With their help you can avoid falls in the abyss, escape from enemies and solve other problems. At the level of Road to Nowhere, you can jump on the rope rails of the destroyed bridge and safely navigate through them; but do not jump too high - you can make a somersault from the bridge and ... God knows where to land! At first, you, of course, will lose a couple of lives, but, having mastered the control of jumping, get rid of problems.
"Jump on the enemy." Jump top on any of the enemies (for example, the turtle), you can jump much higher than usual. Thus, you can overcome dangerous chasms and get to inaccessible prizes. This applies to some extent to all beings, although turtles are the most suitable.
Obstacles. At many early levels, there are rolling stone disks, moving from side to side. The surest way to be not crushed, like a piece of dough, is to jump at a time when the disc passes you. Again, training will help you.
Indiana Jones Rip - Off level. Despite the abundance of enemies, it's quite easy to pass this level: you just have to run faster. After reaching a low wooden fence, jump over it, and then with several identical jumps overpass the pits. And most importantly - do not stop and do not look back.
Turn around! Extra fruit Vumba can be collected if you crash into the enemy with rotation, especially when directly in front of them there is another enemy. You will not only earn fruit, but destroy with one rotation at once two, three, and sometimes four enemies - is it bad?
Premium stages. About their appearance in advance you will not guess. But it is known that, having collected three heads at one stage (Tauny, Doctor Nitrus Brio and Doctor Neo Cortex), you are transported to the bonus stage. There your Bandicoot can jump on boxes a lot. If you pass the bonus stage, you will get the opportunity to save the game - do not miss this opportunity!
