Alternate Path: Purple Gem
In level 9 Tomb Time, there is a way to access the Purple Gem path without having the Purple Gem! Towards the end of the level, the last creature you kill is the snake. After you kill the snake, turn left, and you can see a platform. Instead of going ahead, hitting the exclamation point and finishing the level, do a slide jump to that platform. If you jump perfectly you'll land. Do another one to the next platform. (HINT : It's a lot easier to do when you get the Double Jump power by defeating the 2nd boss, Dingo Dile. Then you can do a Double Slide Jump, and it's easy) But once you do the two slide jumps, you're at the end of the Purple Gem path! On the path there is a clear gem you can grab. And to get the gem for smashing all of the boxes, go through the Purple Gem path backwards, smash all of the boxes, then come back around the regular path, and grab a second clear gem at the end of the level!
Apples from Monkeys
When you are playing a level that has the rock throwing monkeys, after you have destroyed the vases that they occupy you can jump on the cowarding monkeys and get free apples.
Area 51 tip
When racing against the UFO's, you fall down holes. Just follow the wumpa fruit and it'll take you around the holes.
Bonus Levels (26-30)
To get to the Bonus Levels you must aquire 5 relics, which you get by beating the time trails. For each level you must have a certain number of relics to enter (increments of 5).
Tiny –- When Tiny dispatches the lions stay near the bottom of the screen to avoid them. Afterwards, dodge his trident attack and when it gets stuck in the ground counter with a spin-attack. Three spin-attacks defeat Tiny.
Dingodile -– To beat Dingodile, stand back and avoid his laser attacks. As the frequency of his attacks begins to dwindle, run in spin-attack him and run out. Dingodile is defeated by three spin-attacks.
Dr. N Tropy -– To defeat N Trophy, avoid his heat-seeking missiles and gun blasts. As he begins to tire, construct a staircase to his platform, run over and spin-attack him before running back. Three spin-attacks are enough to defeat Dr. N Tropy.
N Gin -- ???
N Cortex -– To defeat the final boss, Neo Cortex avoid the heat-seeking missiles and exploding mines that he tosses at you. After they explode, knock him into the sewer. Neo Cortex is defeated after three attacks. (Note: In the final showdown, Crash battles N Cortex while his friend, Aku Aku fights Uka Uka, Cortex’s boss. Be careful and stay out of their way. The firepower from either side will kill you. Additionally, when Neo is knocked into the sewer, Uka Uka becomes more difficult for Aku Aku to defeat.)
Here's a tip, before you try to beat the levels in Time Trial, wait until you beat Cortex the first time, the super power he gives you is "Crash Dash" which enables you to run faster which will help you get Gold Relics instead of Sapphire ones in the time trials
Easy Motorcycle Time Trials
On the levels where Crash rides the motorcycle, it's easier to beat the time trial if you wait about a minute before starting so that the other vehicles don't knock you off the road. Then, you can hit the clock and still proceed normally.
