Glitches

  • Get extra items

    Find an arrow box and jump on it 200 - 299 times and then jump on top of an enemy and you get extra crystals. Jump on it 300 - 399 times and then jump on top of an enemy and you get extra gems. This can give you a total of 64 crystals and gems.

  • Get more than 99 lives

    To make this glitch work, get 99 lives and enter a level. Break a life box/get 100 apples, and when the Crash symbol goes to the upper part of the screen, and starts to move towards your remaining lives, press Start and return to the Warp Room. You\'ll have 100 lives. Repeat this to get more lives.

  • More time in race levels

    In the levels where you must race against a clock for a gem (Hang Eight and Plant Food), it is possible to get more time. With the clock running, enter the bonus area. As soon as you are there, purposely fail by jumping off the side of a platform. When you respawn in the level, the clock will have restarted with even more time than in the beginning of the race.

  • Find Secret Area in Snow Go

    Go to Level 7: Air Crash. When you get to the area with the boxes in the water, instead of taking the vehicle, do some dangerous jumps across the water to jump onto the platform. It will take you to a hidden area in Snow Go!

    Contributed By: Gbness.



  • Go To Hidden Area in Air Crash

    To go to a secret area in Air Crash, go to Level 13: Bear Down. Get through the level, and after the bear kicks you off, jump back across the small platforms. When your feet touch the large platform, you are instantly transported to a secret area in Air Crash.

    Contributed By: Gbness.



  • Go to level 26 - a secret stage

    Ride the bear in level 15 until you get thrown off at the end of the level. Now, make a long jump in order to go back across the chasm and to go back to the bear in order to warp to the secret stage of level 26.

    Contributed By: Retro.



  • Go To Level 27

    At Level 16, Hangin' Out, around where you get the crystal, go wade through the water into a little secret hole. Jump on a platform in the middle and you will be instantly taken to a hidden level.

    Contributed By: Gbness.



  • Return to Boss Stages

    Stand Crash on the Centre platform and press all shoulder buttons (L1, R1, L2, R2) and triangle and press up when Crash points up to fight that boss of the warp room.

    Note: You can only do this for bosses you have beaten

  • Secret Area in Level 14: Road To Ruin

    To access a secret area in Level 14: Road To Ruin, go to Level 17: Diggin' It. Towards the end of the level, you'll see a seed-spitting plant on a round platform. Belly-flop the plant to be warped to the secret warp room, where you can access the secret leg of Road to Ruin.

  • Skip first level

Glitches

  • Avoid the Lions During The Tiny the Tiger Fight

    When fighting Tiny, he will sometimes summon lions from the gates in the colosseum. If you stand in the very top-left corner of the arena, you'll avoid being damaged - the lions will run through you.

    This glitch does not work in the N. Sane Trilogy remaster; if you attempt this, you can still be hurt, and the crowd throws cheese at you for having attempted this.

  • Maintain Jump Combo Counter

    In this game, if you chain together jumps - which can be on boxes or enemies - and certain jumps are on enemies, you can get special rewards. For example, your 5th jump, if it's on an enemy, will give you an extra life. However, you can maintain your invisible jump combo counter even if you hit the ground - the combo only resets if Crash is in his walking/standing animations. Thus, if you spin just before you hit the ground, and jump before you stop spinning, you can maintain your counter. This can useful in particular if you try to chain 200+ jumps together to get Crystals and other items (there's an guide in the FAQs with more in-depth details on this item glitch).

    Contributed By: Eevee-Trainer.



  • Start With All Power-Ups

    After booting the game, wait at the title screen for the demo to start. Shortly before the game shows the demo of Bye Bye Blimps, begin holding Triangle. After the demo begins you will be in control of Coco. From here, pause and exit the level, and you will appear in the middle of the warp room (as if you had began a new game) with all the power ups. Note: If you finish Bye Bye Blimps, you will be ejected in the fourth warp room, but the force field in front of the hallway will still be in place, trapping you there.

  • Hidden Level Eggipus Rex

    To access the hidden level, Eggipus Rex, go to Dino Might and take the Yellow Gem Path to the secret area. While being chased, let the second pterodactyl attack you. Instead of killing you, it will carry you off to this secret level.

    Contributed By: Gbness.



  • Secret Level - Level 31 Hot Coco

    In world 14 (Road Crash) keep your eye on the left side of the screen as you race. There will be a yellow sign with an alien head on it. Crash into that sign and you will be warped to a Hidden Level.

Area/Level Hints

  • Turbo on all Motorcycle Levels

    In any motorcycle level you play, wait until the second red light lights up. Then press and hold X and you should do a wheelie when the race starts. This way, you will start off with a boost!
