Dr. Neo Cortex has a plan to take over the world, and he wants to create genetically engineered animals to do his bidding. To create his minions, Cortex kidnaps as many animals as he can; Crash Bandicoot's girlfriend just happens to be one of his victims. Take control of Crash as he runs, jumps, and spins through 30 levels of intense action on three different Australian islands. Luckily, Crash finds some items that help him out along the way: collecting 100 pieces of fruit will earn Crash an extra life, finding the witch doctor's mask will let Crash take extra hits, and finishing levels without losing a life will earn gems. With enough gems, bonus levels open-up. Only you can help Crash save the animals, save his girlfriend, and foil Dr. Cortex's Plot. Are you willing to take on the challenge of Crash Bandicoot?
