An orange marsupial named Crash Bandicoot desperately needs your help in saving the world from mad scientist Dr. Neo Cortex. Jump and whirl your way across three tropical islands and 32 levels to give the evil doctor a taste of his own medicine. The game features 3D characters and environments with movement restricted to a single path. The majority of levels are set behind Crash's furry back as he dodges hazards and battles a variety of enemies by either bouncing or spinning on them. Other levels are a mix of side-scrolling sequences and chase scenes that have Crash running toward the screen.
Areas on each island are selected from an overhead map. The object is to safely make it across each stage to unlock the next leg of your journey. Crates scattered throughout the islands can be smashed to reveal health-restoring fruit and other helpful items. There are also hidden symbols that unlock bonus rounds and gems to earn by completing stages under specific conditions. To earn a perfect rating on a level, you'll need to complete it without dying and smash all of the crates. Traverse all three islands and defeat five comical boss characters before your final showdown with Dr. Neo Cortex. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
