         Question: What do you do when you own the rights to two mascots of
    moderate-to-declining popularity and want to squeeze every last cent out of
    them?
         Answer: Pokemon-ize them!
         
         That's right, in Crash Bandicoot's latest outing he's paired with Spyro
    the Dragon for one (technically two) crazy, card-collecting adventure(s)!
    Crash:Purple and Spyro:Orange deviate quite a bit from either character's
    previous GBA games.  Instead of focusing on 2-D sidescrolling or 3-D isometric
    adventure, these latest games focus instead on mini-games and multiplayer.
    Trading Cards are also introduced to give players a reason to play with each
    other (or otherwise force non-social players to buy both games and two GBAs).
         Unlike the various "-mon" games, however, Crash:Purple and Spyro:Orange
    are two completely different games.  Yes, there are Trading Cards that can
    only be found in one game or the other, but the actual gameplay in each is
    actually different enough to warrant the purchase of both games.  The
    overworlds in each are different, and most mini-games are unique to each, so
    kudos to Vicarious Visions for not going the cheap route with these.
    
    
         Question: What do you do if you're a lazy FAQ writer and want to write
    FAQs for two games but only have the attention span for one?
         Answer: Write for Pokemon-type games!
    
         Unfortunately, as this lazy author found out, these ain't no Pokemon
    games.  Sure there are things that both games share (namely Trading Cards),
    but otherwise they require separate walkthroughs (i.e. much more work for me).
    Still, I'm committed to doing both games, mostly because I already did ASCII
    art for both and don't want to see them go to waste.

         Neo Cortex and Ripto happen to chance upon one another at the 37th Annual
    Villain Convention and swap stories of their numerous defeats at the hands
    of their respective foes.  Seeing an opportunity to combine resources and
    rid themselves of their enemies once and for all, they decide to team up.
    After registering with the local Villain Union, they begin setting their
    latest evil plot into action.  After poisoning all of the apples in the world,
    they realize that Bandicoots much prefer the more bitter Wumpa Fruit, and that
    Purple Dragons don't eat fruit at all.  Thus, they go back to Plan B and
    Neo Cortex ends up genetically altering Ripto's army of Riptocs.  As part of
    their plan, they outfit their Riptocs with hilariously bad Crash and Spyro
    masks, hoping our dim-witted heroes will take the bait and blame each other
    for this latest crop of danger and mayhem.
    
         Okay, that's not *exactly* how the manual states it, but I like my version
    better.

    Crash Bandicoot
    ---------------
    Our main hero and the world's top non-Italian and/or hedgehog mascot.
    Abandoned by his previous developer, Crash has had to make ends meet by
    accepting menial roles in low-rate party games and kart race copies.  Realizing
    his popularity may be on the decline, he's decided to team up with Spyro the
    Dragon to gain new fans in the dragon community.
    
    Coco
    ----
    Funny, I didn't know that bandicoots could have blonde hair.  Then again,
    real bandicoots don't wear pants either, so I guess I shouldn't be complaining.
    This book-smart, female Crash counterpart is still quite the inventor in this
    game, teaming up with the Professor to locate Ripto and Cortex.
    
    Crunch Bandicoot
    ----------------
    Originally created as a "super-soldier" bandicoot by Neo Cortex, Crunch has
    been relegated to the sidelines this time around, stuck with the thankless job
    of maintaining Crunch's Gym.  As if trying to help Crash save the world (by
    PUMPING HIM UP) wasn't enough, he also has to contend with copyright
    infringement.
    
    Aku Aku
    -------
    Crash's elder mask mentor, Aku Aku is always willing to take a hit for him,
    even if it's implied (or otherwise outright said) that Aku Aku doesn't always
    have the most faith in Crash.  In recent years, Aku Aku has had to deal with
    family troubles, as his evil twin has been bent on taking over the world or
    some such nonsense.  Said evil twin doesn't seem to be around anymore, despite
    being Cortex's boss in previous games.  Perhaps Aku Aku finally convinced him
    to get the counseling he desperately needed?
    
    N. Cortex
    ---------
    You've gotta hand it to the guy- despite failing miserably at least half a
    dozen times, he still keeps going on.  That, my friends, is called
    determination.  Or stupidity; I forget which.  This time Cortex has realized
    that he needs an equally evil partner (and an equally big loser) to help him
    conquer the world.  Poor Cortex, doesn't he realize that villain team-ups
    never end well?

    Spyro
    -----
    Forgive our purple dragon friend for being a tad bit confused.  This 2-D
    adventure world seems flat and uninspired to him, and is probably the reason
    he's so willing to accept that Crash is a bad guy.  Of course, (SPOILERS!) he
    and Crash eventually figure out the real bad guys are Ripto and Cortex.  And if
    you didn't already figure that out beforehand, then you don't read enough comic
    books.
    
    Sparx
    -----
    Spyro's Dragonfly friend.  Much like Aku Aku does for Crash, Sparx acts as a
    guide for Spyro.
    
    Moneybags
    ---------
    This capitalistic fellow will follow our heroes just about anywhere to pawn off
    his batch of unsold Trading Cards.  Not wanting to seem out of place, he dons
    different costumes depending on the area.
    
    The Professor and All the Rest
    ------------------------------
    Where's Mary Ann?  In any case, Spyro has a large bunch of useless characters
    who appear in Crash:Purple to dole out a variety of useless advice or otherwise
    threaten our leading Bandicoot.  You can learn more about them in my
    Spyro:Orange FAQ.

    Normally I'd assume that people who play games have instruction booklets.  And
    that those people would read those instruction booklets.  From experience, I
    know that I'd assume wrong.

                            [-----------------------------]
    
    Jump
    ----
    Press A to jump.  I've got nothing witty to say about it.  Use it to defeat
    most enemies and break crates.
    
    Double Jump
    -----------
    Press A to jump, then press A again to perform a jump in mid-air.
    
    Spin Attack
    -----------
    Crash's other main form of attack.  Press B to spin.  Spinning also kills most
    enemies and breaks crates.  You can also spin while in the air.
    
    Crouch
    ------
    Press Down on the Control Pad to Crouch.  Pretty useless in this game,
    actually.
    
    
                            [-----------------------------]
    [-----------------------------Advanced Techniques-----------------------------]
                            [-----------------------------]
    
    To be successful in this game, it's very important to learn some "advanced"
    techniques.  If you've been playing Crash games for a while, then you probably
    know these, but if this is your first then pay attention!
    
    Box Bouncing
    ------------
    When you jump and land on a Box, you'll automatically "bounce" back up.  As you
    bounce up, you can move to the left or right, and even press A again to do a
    double jump.  This technique is necessary to remember and utilize when playing
    the Bonus games, as bouncing from box to box will save you valuable time.
    
    High Box Bounce
    ---------------
    As you're landing on a Box, press and HOLD the A button to bounce up higher.
    This is necessary to reach higher crates.
    
    
                           [------------------------------]
    [-----------------------------Mini-Game Controls------------------------------]
                           [------------------------------]
    
    For now, mini-game controls will be handles in the Mini-Game section.  Unless
    I decide there's not enough filler.  Then you'll find them here.
    
    
    [-----------------------------------------------------------------------------]
                            [-----------Crates-----------]
    [-----------------------------------------------------------------------------]
    
    There are various crates that can be found both on the overworld and in some
    of the Mini-Games.
    
    Normal Crate
    ------------
    Normal crates get you a single Wumpa Fruit.  Seems like a waste of space to
    just stuff one Wumpa fruit in there.  And who's actually putting these Crates
    out there?
    
    Mystery Crate
    -------------
    The same as Normal Crates, except they either hold 3 Wumpa Fruit.
    
    Bouncy Crate
    ------------
    These can be jumped on up to 5 times before breaking, each time giving you some
    of that delicious Wumpa Fruit.  They can also be broken in one hit by spinning
    into them.
    
    Pants Crate
    -----------
    These Crates change the color of Crash's pants when broken.  No, I'm not
    kidding.  The color that Crash's pants will change into is indicated on the
    Crate.
    
    Aku Aku Crate
    -------------
    Break these to gain an Aku Aku.
    
    TNT Crate
    ---------
    Jump on these to start a 3 second timer that ends with a blast.
    
    Nitro Crate
    -----------
    Just like TNT Crates, except these explode if you even touch them.  For the 
    most part, you'll want to wait until you find the Nitro Switch Box to detonate
    them.  There are exceptions, though.
    
    Nitro Switch Box
    ----------------
    Hit these to detonate all Nitro Crates in a Mini-Game.
    
    Spring Crate
    ------------
    Not to be confused with Bouncy Crates, these crates with up arrows painted on
    the sides do work the same, giving you an extra boost.  Unlike Bouncy Crates,
    these can be jumped on as many times as you want but don't give you Wumpa
    Fruit.  They can, however, be destroyed by spinning into them.
    
    Spring Box
    ----------
    The same as Spring Crates, except this steel version cannot be destroyed.
    
    Iron Box
    --------
    Indestructible boxes that are mainly just used as platforms.
    
    Time Box
    --------
    Appearing mostly in Bonus Mini-GAmes, these, when destroyed, stop the timer for
    the number of seconds indicated on the side.
    
    
    [-----------------------------------------------------------------------------]
                            [--------Special Items--------]
    [-----------------------------------------------------------------------------]
    
    Aku Aku
    -------
    The platform aspect of this game has been downplayed somewhat in favor of the
    mini-games, so Aku Aku isn't as useful as he used to be.  Grab one mask (found
    in aptly named Aku Aku Crates) for protection from one hit.  Grab a second one
    for a gold mask that gives you protection from two hits.  Grab yet another one
    for, well, nothing.  No invincibility in this game.
    
    You may receive one Aku Aku mask automatically for some Mini-Games.
    
    Note that Aku Aku cannot protect you from falling to your doom.  This includes
    lava, some spikes, and general bottomless pits of death.
    
    Wumpa Fruit
    -----------
    The equivalent of Mario's Coins, can you guess what happens when you collect
    100?  Well, nothing actually.  Crash:Purple does away with the ancient concept
    of "lives."  This time you've got an unlimited number of lives, but if you
    "die" you'll lose all of the Wumpa Fruit that you've collected since the last
    time you played a Mini-Game or entered one of Moneybags' shops.
    
    Also, always make sure to follow Wumpa Fruit!  Oftentimes they'll lead to
    secret paths.  In Mini-Games, they'll usually point out the correct route.
    
    Crystals
    --------
    How many times are these things gonna get lost?  I mean, really now, they
    should just put them in a safe deposit box somewhere.  Power Crystals are
    used to open the gates leading to the next area.  Power Crystals can be
    acquired by beating Mini-Games.
    
    Clear Gems
    ----------
    Clear Gems are your reward for breaking all of the crates in a Mini-Game or
    in a Bonus Mini-Game.  The Clear Gems' utility won't be revealed until the
    end of the game.
    
    Trading Cards
    -------------
    These come in 5 delicious varieties, categorized by their Card Value (rarity).
    There are many ways to acquire Trading Cards.

    1) Q. Do I have to collect all of the Clear Gems for 100%?
    
       A. Yes, Clear Gems count towards your percentage and are necessary to
          "fully" beat the game.
    
    2) Q. Is there any point to collecting the Reli... err, Trading Cards?
    
       A. Unlike the generally useless Relics of Crash games past (thank goodness
          there are no Time Trials this time around, though), there IS a point in
          getting all of the Trading Cards.  The Bonus World Mini-Games in Party
          Mode are unlocked by getting a certain number of cards.
    
    3) Q. Is there any way of collecting the Spyro Cards in Crash:Purple?
    
       A. Blue Spyro Cards (Card Value: Lowest) can sometimes be acquired in

         Since the game is broken up into an overworld and Mini-Games, this section
    will only cover the overworld and the versions of the Mini-Games that you
    play in Story Mode.  There are more difficult versions of Mini-Games available
    in Party Mode.  For more Mini-Game strategies, tips and trivia, check the next
    section (next as in the one after this one, and not this one, which is actually
    the following section, which can easily be confused for the next section).

         This is where it all starts.  Well, actually it starts at Cortex and
    Ripto's secret lair...
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    N. CORTEX: So it's agreed, Ripto.  We'll work together to rid ourselves of
    Spyro and Crash.  My genetic modifications to your army of Riptocs will cause
    those two even more trouble!
    
    RIPTO: Yes, Cortex!  And dressing them up as Crash and Spyro ... Ha ha ha!  Our
    foes won't even realize they should be on the same side!
    
    CORTEX: I'll activate the warp pads.  Soon I.. er, WE, shall conquer this
    measly planet!
    
    CORTEX: Ha ha ha ha ha!¸
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Now we get to our Bandicoot heroes in Wumpa Jungle...
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    AKU AKU: Coco, I sense something is wrong in the jungle again ... and so soon
    since our last adventure.
    
    COCO: Yes, Aku Aku, something is DEFINITELY going on here.  All these strange
    creatures are popping up everywhere!
    
    AKU AKU: I fear this is Cortex's work again.  We need someone who can look into
    this ... someone brave and fearless who can get the job done! But all we have
    is Crash, so he'll have to do.
    
    CRAAAAAAAAASH!!!
    
    AKU AKU: Crash, I'm afraid Cortex is up to his old tricks again.  This time
    he's recruited new dragon-like creatures to steal the power crystals! They must
    be stopped!
    
    COCO: The warp pads all over the jungle each lead to a purple power crystal.
    We can't let Cortex get his hands on them!  It's up to you to save the world
    again, Crash!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    
    Okay, now we finally begin.  Head right and press B to talk to Coco for useless
    advice:
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    COCO: Crash, I've managed to build a warp portal to take you to other parts of
    the world.  You'll need to collect five purple crystals from each area in order
    to power the portal to the next section, though! Good luck, Crash!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    
         Continue right and start collectin that Wumpa Fruit.  As you head across
    the bridge you'll meet your first, umm... "Spyriptoc" (aka Jungle Riptoc).
    Jump on it or spin into it to get rid of it quickly, then continue to the
    right.  Jump over the flames that the Idol Head spews, then jump over the pit
    and press B in front of the spinning '?' Icon for some tips.
    
    ? Crash, I can help you find the warp pads as you explore.  If a warp pad is
      nearby, I'll fly towards it to help you find it.
    
         Note that if you lose Aku Aku he obviously won't do this.  Continue right
    and double jump up to the Spring Box.  Next, bounce to the left and press B
    in front of another '?' Icon.
    
    ? Crash, all the Wumpa fruit you've collected will be lost if you lose your
      life before entering a new area. Be careful!
    
         Wait for the platform on the left to move closer, then jump onto it.  Let
    it take you to the left, then hop off.
    
    ? Press SELECT to display your total amount Wumpa fruit, clear gems, and purple
      crystals.
    
         Continue left and hop onto the Bonus Platform.  Press B to play.

     Objective : Destroy all the Crates!
    
     Total Crates : 22
     TNT Crates   : None
     Nitro Crates : None
    
          These Bonus Mini-Games mimic the Bonus Levels from previous Crash Games.
     The controls are exactly the same as in the overworld.  You'll only find Clear
     Gems here, so your goal is to destroy all of the Crates.  Note that any Wumpa
     Fruit you collect in Mini-Games will carry over into the overworld.
    
          There isn't much strategy involved.  Just follow the Wumpa Fruit as you
     fall to reach the next Crate.  To slow your decent slightly and to give you a
     chance to reorient yourself, remember that you can always double jump after
     you
     bounce off a Crate.  Other than that, the only advice I can give is to just
     memorize where the Crates are.
         If you broke all of the Crates, the Clear Gem will be waiting for you at
     the bottom of the area.  Remember to collect it before you enter the Warp
     Portal!
    
                          |/____________________________/
    
    
         Okay, back in the overworld, fall down and head back to the right.  Stomp
    on the Gecko and access the next '?' Icon.
    
    ? You need to use Wumpa fruit to unlock the Warp Pads, Crash.  When you have
      the amount of Wumpa fruit necessary, press B to unlock the Warp Pad and enter
      the Mini-Game.  Beat the Mini-Game to collect the Purple Crystal!
    
         You heard the man, err... mask.  By now you should have the amount of
    Wumpa Fruit necessary, so step in fron of the Warp Pad and press B to unlock
    the Mini-Game.  You'll notice the feint green outlines of a Power Crystal and
    a Clear Gem.  This tells you that in addition to a Power Crystal, you can also
    get a Clear Gem from this Mini-Game.
         Press B to enter.

      B: Turbo!   |   TNT Crates   : None
      R: Turbo!   |   Nitro Crates : 1
    
          Ah, your first Mini-Game.  Isn't this just a Fuji moment?  Anyway, this
     Mini-Game plays much like the Polar Bear levels in previous Crash games,
     except this time in 2-D.  Remember that there IS a Clear Gem in this
     Mini-Game, so try to break all of the Crates.  A little meter on the bottom
     of the screen will show you how close you are to the finish.  Nifty.
          Begin by doing nothing and letting Crash break the first 3 Crates.
     You'll want to jump to get the next Crate, then jump again over some Spears.
     Next, jump over the pit (pressing B or R for turbo is recommended, but not
     necessary).  Run into the next Crate, then jump over another pit.
          This next part is very important!!  After jumping over the pit, get
     ready to Turbo and jump up to some platforms.  You cannot reach the platforms
     if you're not using Turbo!  Turbo up to another two platforms (and another 2
     Crates), then release the Turbo button and jump into the Mystery Crate.
          Do nothing to get the next 2 Crates, then jump over a pit.  Jump over the
     Idol Head, then jump over yet another two pits.  As soon as you land, press
     the Turbo buttons and get ready to jump to some high platforms.  Turbo across
     the platforms and make sure you get another 3 Crates.
          After you fall down, jump over the Nitro, then jump again for another
     Crate (you should have 14 at this point).  Jump to the hanging platform for
     another Crate, then jump again.
          Jump over the Spears, then jump over the pit and snag another Crate.
     Jump over another pit and collect another Crate.  Jump over yet another pit
     and do nothing to break the next crate.  Jump over the Spears and collect
     another 3 Crates.  Finally, jump over one last pit and make sure you jump to
     hit the Nitro Switch Box.
         If you broke all of the Crates, the Clear Gem will be waiting for you at
     the end along with the Purple Power Crystal (you'll receive the Crystal just
     for reaching the end).
    
                           |/__________________________/
    
    
         Back in Wumpa Jungle, head right and access the '?' Icon.
    
    ? Double jump by pressing A while in the air, Crash!
    
         Of course, you probably should've known that already if you had read the
    manual, but apparently the developers don't have much faith in gamers.  In
    any case, head a little bit back to the left until you're in the middle of the
    slope, then double jump to the right onto the Iron Boxes.  Double jump to the
    right again onto more Iron Boxes, and jump once more to a platform.  Hop onto
    the Bonus Platform and enter.

           Unlike the previous Freefallin' Bonus Game, this one has a time limit,
     so you better be quick in destroying those Crates.  If you run out of time,
     well, you'll see...
           Run to the right and jump on the first Crate.  Fall onto the TNT Crate
     to activate it and skip the next Crate (the TNT will blow it up).  Jump to the
     right, then jump on the Spring Crate to break the Pants Crate above (ooh, look
     at those shiny new pants!).  Spin as you're falling to break the Spring Crate
     and the Crate next to it.
           Jump on the '2' Time Crate to add some time to the clock and bounce to
     the platform on the right.  Defeat the Gecko and break the Crate above.  Jump
     across another pit and you'll see a Mystery Crate.  Jump on top of it, then
     bounce to the right onto another Crate.  Bounce off that crate to hit a '2'
     Crate.  Fall straight down to hit the final Crate.  The Clear Gem will appear
     to the right.  Collect it and warp yourself out of there.

         Head right and fall straight down onto a Jungle Riptoc.  Continue right
    and hop on the Spring Box for some more Wumpa Fruit, then fall to the right.
    Keep going right and stomp on the Gecko, then access the '?' Icon.
    
    ? You can unlock these barriers by paying the correct amount of Wumpa Fruit,
      Crash.
    
         Exactly who do you pay it to, anyway?  Hop up next to the gate and press
    B to unlock it.  You'll need 20 Wumpa Fruit, but you should have that much by
    now anyway.

          The second half of Wumpa Jungle features more dangers, mainly in the form
    of really, really sharp things.  
    
    ? Don't forget that you can always return to previous areas in order to access
      the warp pads or collect more Wumpa Fruit!
    
         Unfortunately, there's no fast way of getting from, say, the final area
    back to Wumpa Jungle, so I'd suggest finishing everything in an area before
    moving on.  
         Head right, jump over the Spears, over the pit (of sharp.. Bamboo?), and
    over more Spears.  Continue right and defeat the Plant.  If you wish, drop down
    to the right and head all the way right to meet one of Spyro's friends, Blinky:
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    BLINKY: Stay away from me, you stupid orange creature! Wait until I tell my
    dragon friend about you. He'll stop you and your friends for sure!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
         Who is she calling orange?!  Oh, right, Crash.  Actually, I'd say he was
    more of a reddish-brown, but whatever.  As you can see, she doesn't say or do
    anything useful, so head back left and jump up to the left.
         Wait for the moving platform to move down, then double jump onto it.  Wait
    for it to go all the way up, then jump to the right.  Head right until you see
    Crunch:
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    CRUNCH: Crash, how are you going to save the world looking so puny? You need to
    pump some iron! Just step on that pad over there. Go on, doooooo it!!!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
         For maximum enjoyment, imagine Crunch speaking with an Austrian accent.
    Crunch does have a point, though.  Have you seen Crash's arms??

           This really barely qualifies as a Mini-Game.  You do have to press the

     nothing.  You'll receive a Weightlifting Crash Card (Card Value: Medium) for
     your efforts.

          Okay, that was a waste of time.  Head back to the left and wait for the
    moving platform to appear.  Jump onto it, then jump to the platform on the
    left.  Jump to another platform to the left.  Next, jump across the Iron Boxes
    until you reach the next Warp Pad.  You should have 30 Wumpa Fruit, so enter
    it.

     the Sheep reach the far-left, or else it'll detonate all of the Nitros, which
     will blow YOU up for a change.
          Note that the order of the Sheep never changes, so if you're having a
     hard time reacting, just memorize the tought parts.  White Sheep will stop to
     graze every few steps, while Black Sheep will stop at nothing to kill you.
     Try to stay near the middle of the screen so you can react quickly should a
     Black Sheep spring out of nowhere.  Defeat ALL 40 Sheep to receive the

     umm, Cannonballs will bounce off any walls that they hit, so keep this in
     mind as you're playing.
          Rotate to the right and destory the 3 Crates nearby (bounce a shot off
     one of the walls on the right).  Turn back to the left and start moving up.
     Destroy the Nitro from far away, then continue up.  There will be a stationary
     tank shooting to the left.  Destroy, then continue up and to the right.

     the tank there, then head right.  Shoot the 3 Nitros and continue right.
     Shoot the tank above and head right a bit to shoot another tank below.  Head
     up a bit to spot another tank to the right.  Destroy it, then follow follow

     to time your shots precisely.  Do your best to destroy the tanks while they're
     still up high, because if you have to save Crash the screen will zoom in and
     it'll be harder to see the whole screen.  You can shoot either the parachute
     or the tank itself to destroy it.
          If one of the tanks happens to reach the ground, press B from any height
     to start lift Crash's pod up.  You're still vulnerable to the tanks' shots,
     though.  Also, don't forget to wait until the tank has completely passed under
     Crash's pod before letting go.
          Green parachutes fall the fastest, so concentrate on them.  The only
     other thing to note is that sometimes a tank will be surrounded by a red
     shield.  If that's the case, then you MUST shoot the parachute, or else your
     shots will do nothing.

         You may or may not be out of Wumpa Fruit after those outrageous prices.
    If you need more, just explore previous areas or play Mini-Games again.
         Head back left and drop down, then drop straight down again to the left.
    Jump left across the Bamboo for a random Green Card.  Jump back to the right
    and continue right.  Avoid the Idol Heads and Jungle Riptoc and continue right
    until you see two Spring Boxes in the air.  Double jump onto the right one,
    then jump to the left one.  Jump across the platforms to the right to find the
    final Warp Pad in Wumpa Jungle.
    
    ? Press SELECT to display your total amount Wumpa fruit, clear gems, and purple
      crystals.
    
         Okay, I don't know why we'd need that advice again, but whatever.  If you
    have 25 Wumpa Fruit, enter the Warp Pad.

          Gee, I wonder what this is a cheap rip-off of.  It's kinda fun, I guess
     (at least more fun than the Copter games), and doesn't go on for too long.
     But still, what does inner-tube fun have to do with Crash
          Again, you must break all of the Crates for a Clear Gem, and the only way
     to break the Crates here is to run straight into them.  Luckily, there's no
     time limit and you can even go all the back back to the beginning if you need
     to, so getting the Clear Gem shouldn't be too hard.
          Start by getting the Crate that's slightly to the right.  Follow the
     Wumpa Fruit for another Crate, then stay in the middle of the screen.  After
     you break the Mystery Crate, go to the far right and get ready to Turbo past
     the whirlpool.  Stay to the right to break another Crate.  Next, head left
     past the Nitro for another Crate.
          Head right and carefully make your way past the Mine.  Break the Mystery
     Crate and float past another Mine.  Next, break the Aku Aku Crate and stay to
     the right for another Crate.  Now float left for a Mystery Crate.  Float past
     the Mine and break the 2 Crates nearby.  Take the path on the right to get
     past the whirlpool.  After you break the Crate, immediately turbo to the left
     to get past another whirlpool.  Float up a bit, then hit the Nitro Switch Box
     and break the final 2 Crates.  Continue up to end this Toobin' copy.  Make
     sure you collect the Clear Gem and Power Crystal before you leave, though!
    
                        |/_________________________________/
    
    
         Head left and fall straight down.  Walk left a bit and fall straight down
    again.  After you land, head right and defeat the Jungle Riptoc.  Grab the
    random Green Card on the right, then head back left.  Jump up to the Steel
    Boxes, then jump to the right.  Send the Heli-Riptoc flying sky high and
    continue going right.  Jump over the Spears and continue right for another '?'
    Icon.
    
    ? Crash, you need to collect all the Purple Crystals from this area before you
      can unlock this gate.
    
         If you've been following the walkthrough up to now, you should have all 5,
    so open the Gate.  Jump into the portal for more fun!
    
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    AKU AKU: I wonder where that last portal has brought us, Crash? I can see a
    castle over this chasm. Look, a purple dragon! I wonder if it's the same kind
    of strange creature terrorizing Wumpa Jungle?
    
    SPYRO: You must be another one of Ripto's creatures! You think you're just
    going to take over the world? How about taking on Spyro the Dragon, first!

          I'm sure this is ripping something off, but I can't think of it right
     now.  Where did they get those Malotov Cocktails, anyway?
          The point of this mercifully short Mini-Game is to use the Molotov
     Cocktails to destroy the castle wall beneath Spyro.  It takes two hits to
     destroy a section.
          The best strategy is to hit a section once, then time your second throw
     so that Spyro is right above the section when it hits.
          If, for some reason, he managed to destroy part of the bridge you're on,
     you can either jump over the pit or walk right next to it and press B
     repeatedly to repair the section (note that you can't jump over two adjacent
     pits).  Really, though, this game is incredibly easy, so you shouldn't even
     have to worry about that.

    SPYRO: Wait! You're not like those other creatures back at Dragon Castles.
    
    AKU AKU: This is Crash Bandicoot, and I'm Aku Aku. I fear our enemy Neo Cortex
    is behind all of this.
    
    SPYRO: I'm Spyro and this is Sparx. Wait, you say Cortex is behind this? To me,
    this seems like the work of Ripto! Those creatures look an awful lot like his
    Riptocs.
    
    AKU AKU: Oh no, it's worse than I expected. It appears that Cortex has teamed
    up with a villain as nefarious as himself - your enemy Ripto! The two of them
    working together may have enough power to take over this world!
    
    SPYRO: I bet they wanted us to fight each other instead of going after them! If
    we team up, though, they won't stand a chance against us! Come on, Crash, let's
    go!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
         ...Okay, maybe they really were that dense.  Regardless of their previous
    stupidity, they've finally come to their senses.
         You'll receive a Red Card (Highest) after beating Spyro.  I believe it's
    always a Dingodile Card, but it may be random.  Anyway, head right and press

    didn't get into a misunderstanding. This is the professor - he's helping me to

          These Rocket Pack Mini-Games can be tough.  You can't touch the ceiling
     or the floor, or else you'll explode immediately.  There are also plenty of
     walls that will stand in your way.  The best way to go about these levels is
     to lightly press the A button repeatedly to maintain your height.  If you hold
     the A button then you risk the chance of overdoing it and hitting the ceiling.
     For the most part, you'll want to follow the Wumpa Fruits, as they'll lead you
     to Crates and safety.
          Maintain your height for the first Crate, then rise slightly for the next
     Crate.  Let go of the A button and descend a bit for the next two Crates.
     Fall down a bit for the next Crate, then stay at that height for another
     Crate.
          Next, you'll want to rise a lot, so make sure you hold the A button.
     After you pass the wall, immediately let of A and fall into the Crate.
     Continue falling a bit, then when you pass another wall, start rising again.
     Rise to the height of the next two Crate, then break through them and squeeze
     through the opening.  You'll want to fall for the next two Crates, then rise
     again.
          The next two Crates can be tough to get, since they're spaced rather far
     apart.  You'll want to fall below the height of the bottom Crate, then the
     second you hit that Crate, start rising to hit the top Crate.  Descend for the
     next crate, then maintain your height for a while.  Fall down again for
     another Crate, then stay still for the next Crate.
          Next, you'll want to stay at the same relative height for the next 6
     Crates, then dip down slightly for another Crate.  Start rising again, then
     fall for another two Crates.  Rise for another Crate, then rise a bit more for
     another two Crates (these two are spaced out quite a bit, so use the same
     strategy as before).  Descend a little for the final Crate, then maintain your
     height as you collect the Crystal and Clear Gem and exit the Mini-Game.

    his attire (I'm guessing the grass skirt wouldn't provide much protection from

          Timed again, so make sure you're quick!  Hop on the first Crate, then,
     as you're bouncing up, double jump to reach the Crate high in the air.  Land
     on another Crate to the right.  Run right and jump on the '3' Crate.  Bounce
     onto the Pants Crate, then land to the right and Spin into the Penguin.
          This next part can be tricky.  Jump on the Crate to the right.  After
     you bounce up (DON'T hold the A button when you're landing on the Crate!),
     jump to get the Crate above you.  Land on a Crate to the right, then bounce
     up again to hit another Crate in the air.  Land on yet another Crate, then
     bounce up and Spin the Crate in the air.
          Run to the right and jump on the next Crate.  After you bounce up,
     jump to hit the Crate above.  Land on the TNT, then bounce to the '1'
     Crate.  After you bounce off the '1' Crate, jump to hit the Crate above, then
     land on another TNT Crate.  Bounce to the right, being careful not to land on
     the Nitro.  Jump to break the Crate in the air, then double jump to the right
     and bounce across the two Crates and one '1' Crate (you'll have to double jump
     across the Crates) until you land on the Nitro Switch Box.  Quickly jump up
     and to the right to collect the Clear Gem and beat the Bonus Mini-Game.

     pit, then run into another Crate after you land.
          Jump over a Nitro, then hop across a pit and land on a platform with two
     Crates.  Break them, then jump across another two pits.  Next, you'll want to
     Turbo Jump over a fallen idol (breaking a Crate while doing so).  If you hit
     the idol, you'll lose an Aku Aku or otherwise die.  Jump over another idol,
     then turbo jump across a pit.  Land and break another two Crates, then
     immediately turbo jump to another platform with an additional two Crates.
          Drop down, then get ready to jump over another idol (what on earth is
     pushing these things over?).  Turbo jump to a platform with a crate, then
     jump again to another platform with another two Crates.  Fall down, do nothing
     for a bit, then jump to another platform with two more Crates.  Jump over the
     next three pits, then over another idol.  After the idol, immediately start
     using the Turbo, then when you see the Wumpa Fruit, jump up to the platform
     for another Crate.  Keep holding the Turbo button to jump to another platform,
     then jump again to fall into three more Crates.  Quickly jump up for another
     Crate in the air.
          Keep the turbo button held as you jump to another platform.  Jump again
     to another platform with a Crate.  Again, keep holding turbo as you jump to
     a platform with two more Crates.  Jump down to the next platform, break the
     Crate, and fall down.  Quickly jump over the fallen idol to snag another
     Crate, then be prepared to jump over a Nitro.  Next, you'll have to jump over
     three pits.  Make sure you break the Crate as you jump.  Jump across another
     few pits then make sure you hit the Nitro Switch Box as you near the exit.
     Collect the Crystal and Clear Gem, then exit.

          This one can be a doozy due to the Bouncy Crates.  Remember that they
     take five hits to destroy by jumping on them, or you can spin them to destroy
     them instantly.  Unfortunately, most of the Bouncy Crates here appear over
     pits, so your only choice will be to bounce on them until they break.
          Head right and jump on the Crate.  After you bounce back up, land on the
     Spring Crate on the right.  Double jump up to hit a Crate high in the air,
     then spin as you're falling to break the Spring Crate on your way down.  Jump
     on the TNT Crate to activate it, then bounce onto the '1' Crate.  Continue
     bouncing across another two Crates until you reach the next platform.
          Activate the TNT, then double jump up to the Bouncy Crate.  Bounce on it
     until it breaks, then bounce to the next Bouncy Crate.  THIS NEXT PART IS KEY.
     Land the right edge of the Bouncy Crate and bounce off it once.  As you're
     landing on the Bouncy Crate again, position yourself on the left edge so that
     you'll hit the Bouncy Crate to the upper-left as you bounce up.  Bounce up and
     down until you break the Bouncy Crate on the bottom, then immediately bounce
     to the left (make sure you didn't break the Bouncy Crate above).  Jump on the
     '1' Box, then bounce onto the TNT Crate.  Jump right onto the Bouncy Crate
     (which should now only take one hit to destroy), and bounce again to the
     right.  Destroy the '3' Crate, then activate the TNT.
          Next, you'll want to bounce across three Crates on the right.  After you
     bounce off the third Crate, jump up to hit a Crate in the air, then land on a
     '2' Crate to the right.  Bounce up and hit another Crate in the air, then spin
     as you land to break the final Crate.  Collect the Clear Gem and run to the
     exit.

    This'll be the Arctic Cliffs Card.  Jump up to the left and wait for the

    Keep going left, defeat the seal, and jump over the ice spikes.
         When you see a Spring Box, jump on it and up to the ice platform.  Jump

     but I'm not, so let's just move on.  This is, without a doubt, a huge waste of
     memory.  It's basically a combination of Breakout and Space Invaders, but it's
     really just Breakout with barely mobile targets.  Basically, you'll want to
     keep bouncing the ball until you hit all of the enemies.  The enemies make
     fairly large targets, and while you die if the enemies hit reach you and hit
     you, that probably won't happen because they move so slowly.
          To begin, press A to launch the ball.  Hold L or R while moving to move
     faster in that direction.  The most important move, however, is attracting
     balls (again, in the name of good taste I won't make a ball joke, but I'm sure
     you're giggling already).  Press and hold B to start attracting balls.  Doing
     so will prevent the ball from bouncing off you.  Instead, you'll catch the
     it and it won't move until you release B (or a certain period of time passes).
     One tip to remember is that you move in the direction you want the ball to go
     while releasing B to make the ball go in that direction.
          There are 3 rounds to this meaningless Mini-Game.  The first round has 3
     Lab Assistants and a plain ol' Riptoc.  Round 2 has 3 Riptocs, 3 Lab
     Assistants, and one Arctic Riptoc.  When you hit the Arctic Riptoc it will
     put a second ball into play.  Round 3 has 4 Lab Assistant, 4 Riptocs, and 1
     Arctic Riptoc.  Beat all 3 rounds to receive the Purple Power Crystal.

         Head right and be wary of the falling icicles.  Jump over the frigid
    waters and make your way past the swining axe.  Jump over some ice spikes,
    defeat the Arctic Riptoc, and hit the Aku Aku Box for some protection.
    Continue right and jump over more water, avoid another axe, and defeat another
    Arctic Riptoc.  Head onto the slope then double jump to left onto the Spring
    Box.  Bounce to the left to reach another Mini-Game.

          Another Inner-Tube game already?  I didn't really expect them to start
     re-using Mini-Games so soon.
          The first two Crates are in plain sight when you start.  After breaking
     them, speed past the Mine for another Crate, then make your way past another
     Mine.  Head left, then down for another Crate.  Now hug the left wall and
     Turbo your way past the Whirlpool.
          After passing the next Mine, carefully make your way to the right.
     Sneak past the Nitro and head down for another Crate.  Head back up and pass
     another Mine.  After doing so, quickly head left for two more Crates.  Next,
     you'll want to stay as far to the left of the Whirlpool as possible and turbo
     past it.
          This next part can be very tricky, so hopefully you still have an Aku Aku
     left.  There will be torpedoes beneath the surface of the water which will
     explode when you touch them.  It IS possible to make it past the strait
     without getting hit, but it's much more recommended to just have an Aku Aku on
     hand and turbo through it.  After you make it through hit the Crate on the
     right and head a bit southeast for another Crate.  Head back up and to the
     left for another Crate.  Next, you'll want to stay to the right as you pass
     the Mine for another Crate.
          This next part can also be trickym since there are plenty of Whirlpools
     and Nitros to kill you.  Float to the left and carefully Turbo past the
     Whirlpool, doing your best not the hit the Nitro coming up.  After bypassing
     the Nitro, hit the Crate and Turbo past another Whirlpool.  Head past another
     Nitro, hit the Nitro Switch Box and break the final Crate.  Collect the
     goodies and exit.

    AGENT 9: You're Spyro's new friend, huh? I'm Agent 9. Look out for those
    swinging axes. They really get their point across.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
         Ummm... ha hah?  How very punny of Agent 9, and I'm sure you couldn't have
    figured out by yourself that giant swinging axes can't possibly be good for the
    soul.  Anyway, jump to the left onto a platform.  Jump to the Iron Box, then
    fall down to the left onto the icy platform.  Quickly jump again to a snowy
    platform to the left.  Jump again to an icy platform to the left.  Here, you'll
    meet Moneybags again.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    MONEYBAGS: Hello, Crash! Why don't you come into my shop? I'll be happy to
    lighten your load of Wumpa fruit!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
         Yes, I'm sure you are.  Okay, I understand that Wumpa Fruit is the
    official currency of Crash's universe, but exactly what does Moneybags plan on
    doing with them?  He looks a bit pudgy to me, so maybe he's planning on an
    all-Wumpa Fruit diet.  Anyway, give the man what he wants and play for some
    Trading Cards.

          Easier than the Spinning Wheel game, but only if you have a good eye

          This is what, the third time Moneybags has shown up in Arctic Cliffs
    alone?  This latest game is the hardest, since it's purely luck.  Thankfully it
    only costs 10 Wumpa Fruit to play.  Just like the Crate Shuffle game, one Crate
    will have Wumpa Fruit, another will have a Trading Card, and one other has

    into the Heli-Riptoc.  Continue left, and when you see the Spring Box, jump on
    it and land to the left to speak with Coco and the Professor.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    COCO: Hi, Crash. Aku Aku told me what was going on. No worries, though, this is
    the professor, and I'm working with him to locate Ripto and Cortex so we can
    stop them. Just keep getting those purple crystals, okay? If Cortex gets them,
    we'll be doomed for sure!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    PROFESSOR: Oh dear, I hope you and Spyro have what it takes to stop those two.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
         Gee, thanks for the vote of confidence, Professor.  Head back right and
    fall straight down.  As you're falling, make sure to hug the left wall to enter
    a semi-hidden opening.  Head right to collect a random Blue Card, although I'm
    not really sure how random it is.  For me, it's usually either a Gem Red Card
    or a Gem Yellow Card.  Your mileage may vary.
         Okay, you've pretty much done everything that's left to be done here, so
    on to the grand finale of Arctic Cliffs.  Jump over the ice spikes to the
    right and continue all the way to the right until you reach the Gate.  You
    should have all 5 Crystals from this place as well as the 5 from Wumpa Jungle,
    so open it up and be prepared for Tiny.

      A: Shoot!
    
          Umm... this guy ain't so tiny.  Oh, that's the joke?  Well, this battle
     sure isn't a joke.  Quite a bit harder than the previous Spyro Battle, this
     one will actually take a bit of skill.
          The first thing you'll want to do is to move behind the bottom stone wall
     (avoiding Tiny's first shot while doing so) so that it'll absorb Tiny's shots.
     You can't hit Tiny while he has a purple shield  around him anyway.  Hopefully
     the stone wall will drop at around the same time his shield disappears, so
     fire at him then.  You can only get in one hit for now.  Stay still and wait
     for a chance to get a second hit in, then it's time to change strategy.
          Tiny will now start shooting cannonballs into the air.  He'll shoot three
     of them total, and you'll want to be constantly on the move during this phase.
     From now on he'll switch between cannonballs and normal shots (usually doing
     2-3 of each before switching to the other).  Unfortunately, the stone walls
     now go up and down fairly fast, so it may be difficult to avoid Tiny's shots.
     If you've still got an Aku Aku left, my advice would be to just stay still
     and keep firing from one spot since it'll only take one more hit to defeat
     Tiny (3 hits in all).

     Turret.  After you shoot it, head right and shoot the Tank above.  Now head
     down and shoot the Nitro in the way.  Go down and shoot another Tank, then
     continue south.  To get the Crates in the alcove, you'll have to bounce your
     shots in.  After breaking them, head left and shoot the Crate in another
     alcove.  Go back up and head right.
          Destroy the Tank and move to where it was.  Aim to the northwest and
     fire to break the two Crates in the lava.  Head right through the Gate, then
     head right and shoot the Aku Aku Crate and normal Crate in the lava.  Go down,
     then right, and shoot the Nitro.  Continue right, then up past the Gate.
     There's a Tank to the left, so don't head up too quickly.  Destroy it first,
     then continue up and break another Crate.
          Go to the northeast to meet a new Flamethrower Tank.  This Tank actually
     moves, but doesn't have a great range of fire, so just shoot it from afar.
     Head up, then left for another two Crates.  Head right and stay near the top
     and you should see another Crate sitting on top of lava.  Shoot it, then turn
     to the right and shoot another Crate.  Head down and shoot the two Tanks on
     the way.  Turn to the left for another two Crates in an alcove.
          Turn around and head right.  Blow up the Nitro and continue east.  Try
     to bounce a shot off the bottom wall to destroy the Tank before going past
     the gate.  Destroy the Crate to the right and then go up.  Destroy the tank to
     the left, then go up and break the final two Crates.  Head southwest to
     collect the Crystal and Clear Gem, then exit.

     then carefully head left to break another Crate near the Whirlpool.  Go back
     right and continue floating up past the two Mines.  After passing the Nitro,
     break the two Crates nearby.  Float to the left and continue up.
          Break another Crate and turbo across the Whirlpool.  Immediately after
     you pass the Whirlpool, head left for another Crate.  Stay to the left, avoid
     the Nitro and keep floating up to get to the next Crate.  Break it, then avoid
     the Nitro to the right and float up.  Break another Crate, then head left (be
     careful of the Nitro) to avoid the Whirlpool.  Quickly head right after
     passing the Whirlpool to hit the Nitro Switch Box (which will give you the
     final 8 Crates).  Go up, collect the Gem and Crystal, and exit.

          Wow, this one is... really easy.  When you begin, jump up onto the Crate,

     on the left and bounce again to another platform.
          Jump on the TNT, then double jump up to hit a Crate in the air.  After
     you land, quickly jump to the Crate on the right to escape the TNT explosion.

          This Rocket Mini-Game is even tougher than the last, mostly due to the
     appearance of Nitros.  Anyway, rise for the first Crate, then descend just a
     bit for the next Crate.  Follow the Wumpa Fruit for the next two Crates, but
     start rising after you hit the second Crate or else you might hit a Nitro.
     Rise some more to avoid a second Nitro.
          Descend for the next Crate, then rise and fall quickly over the wall (be
     careful of the Nitro right after the wall).  Follow the Wumpa Fruit to hit
     another two Crates, then rise a little for the next Crate.  Go down for the
     next Crate, but be careful because it's just below a Nitro.  Start rising
     again and maintain your height for the next 2 Crates.  After hitting the
     second Crate, maintain your height to get past through an opening between two
     Nitros and a wall.  After you get through, descend to get past another wall,
     then quickly rise to avoid a Nitro and hit another Crate.
          Start descending and squeeze through the lower passage for another Crate.
     When you emerge, rise for the next two Crates, then descend for a third Crate.
     Maintain your height to get over the Nitro, then hit the next Crate and start
     rising again.  Hit another two Crates and descend for another Crate.  Rise
     over the next wall, descend a bit, and rise again to hit the Nitro Switch Box.
     Stay near the middle of the screen to collect the Gem and Crystal, then exit.

         Speaking of which, jump to the platform on the left for a random Green
    Card (usually a Scarab, Scorpion, or Sword Assistant).  Next, jump across the
    Spring Boxes and Irong Boxes to the left to reach the Fire Mountains Card.
    Head back right to where Bianca was.  Jump right across the platforms (make
    sure you don't fall down) until you reach a Flamethrower Assistant.  Defeat him
    and continue right.  Jump across the Iron Boxes to reach the last Warp Pad in
    Fire Mountains.

          Is it just me, or does Crash look strangely off-model in these Bat
     Mini-Games?  It looks like they whipped up the sprite in like two seconds,
     because he's not shaded at all.  Strangely enough, the bat is.  Ah well.
          Just a few quick pointers before we start.  You can only fire or charge
     one weapon at a time.  A fires rockets straight ahead, while B drops a Bomb
     that will explode upon contact with the ground or any object.  Charging A
     will release 3 rockets, while charging B will let it roll on the ground for
     a few seconds before it explodes.  Also, remember that there is NO Nitro
     Switch Box, so you MUST destroy every Nitro manually.
          Begin by running into the first Crate, then dropping a bomb to destroy
     the next Crate.  Drop down for the next crate, then destroy the next two
     crates however you like.
          At this point enemy Bats will start showing up.  Defeat them with rockets
     or bombs.  Drop bombs on the next two crates, then start firing rockets to
     defeat the upcoming Lab Assistant.  Dodge his shot if he manages to get one 
     out.  Destroy the next two Crates in whatever way you see fit, then fly up and
     wait for the lave rock to fall down before going on.
          Fly over the firewall, then go down and run into a Crate and an Aku Aku
     Crate.  Go back up and defeat any approaching Bats.  After flying over the
     firewall, fly down and shoot a rocket to hit the next two Crates.  Next, head
     up and blow up the Nitro and the next Crate.  Avoid the erupting lava, and
     fire near the middle of the screen to dispose of the upcoming Lab Assistant.
          Head to the top of the screen and destroy the Nitro while avoiding the
     firewalls.  Defeat the Lab Assistant, then drop bombs on the two Crates below.
     Fire a rocket while at the top of the screen, then quickly head down to
     destroy a Nitro and another two Crates.  Head back up and destroy the two
     Nitros blocking the passage.  Drop a bomb on the next Nitro, then head up and
     fire at the Lab Assistant.
          This next part can be tricky.  Quickly rush to the right part of the
     screen and destroy the Crate above, then go back to the bottom path and break
     the Crate there.  Stay at the bottom for another Crate, then as soon as you
     can, head back up and destroy the Crate up there.  Destroy the last two
     Nitros, defeat the Lab Assistant, collect your goodies, and exit.

          This one can be a bit trickier than the previous one, so I'll give a
     full walkthrough this time around.
          Fall down to the right and follow the Wumpa Fruit to land on the first
     Crate.  Bounce off that Crate and hit the Crate to the left, then head to the
     middle of the screen to hit the next Crate.  Stay in the middle to avoid 2
     Nitros.  You'll land on a Bouncy Crate, with 3 Nitros nearby.  Bounce on the
     Bouncy Crate 5 times to break it, then fall between the left and center
     Nitros.  You'll land on another Crate.
          Next, head to the center of the screen to hit another Crate.  Stay in
     the center to land on a Spring Crate.  Use it to jump up to the two TNTs to
     the left and right.  Set them off, then spin into the Spring Crate to break
     it.  After you break it, head slightly left of the middle to hit another TNT
     Crate.  Bounce to the right and set off another TNT.
          Stay near the right to hit the next Crate, then bounce to the left to
     hit another.  Go back to the center of the screen and bounce on the Bouncy
     Crate until it breaks.  Remain in the middle to set off a TNT, then quickly
     bounce to the right and follow the Wumpa to hit a Crate.  There's a Nitro
     below, so quickly bounce to the left and hit another Crate.  Next, you'll
     want to bounce right to hit a Crate, then go to the middle for another Crate.
     Finally, head to the left to hit the Nitro Switch Box.  Collect the Gem and
     exit.

         Jump up to the right but beware of falling rocks.  Continue right until
     you see the moving platform that takes you up to Crunch.  Ride it up again,
     and head right past Crunch.  Jump onto the moving platform, then hop off to
     the right.  Defeat the Lab Assistant and ocntinue right.  Jump across the
     series of Iron Boxes and you'll reach the next Warp Pad.

          This one's even tougher than before, due to much narrower passages.  Rise
     up through the passage, but quickly descend to avoid hitting a wall.  Break
     the Crate, then immediately start rising again.  Hit the next two Crates, then
     go back down.  After hitting the next Crate, quickly rise and hit another
     Crate.  Immediately descend to hit the next Crate, then go all the way up.
          Hit the next two Crates and descend to hit a third Crate.  Descend until
     you see Wumpa Fruit, which should be your signal to rise again.  Hit the Crate
     and go back down to hit another Crate.  Stay near the bottom to take the lower
     path and hit the Crate as you emerge from the passage.  Ascend when you see
     the Wumpa Fruit, then descend to hit the next two Crates.  Quickly rise to hit
     another Crate, and keep going up.
          When you see Wumpa again, start descending and you should hit another two
     Crates.  Immediately rise again to hit another Crate, then descend again to
     hit the next Crate.  Rise over the big wall and go back down on the other side
     to hit another Crate.  Go through the narrow passage and hit the Crate there,
     then rise once you emerge.  Hit the next Crate and go down a bit for another
     Crate.  Follow the Wumpa to the lower path and hit another two Crates before
     rising up to hit a third Crate.
          Rise up near the top and stay there for the next two Crates.  Descend
     slightly to hit another Crate.  Start going back up, then quickly go back
     down to hit the next Crate.  Stay near the bottom until you see Wumpa, then
     go up and follow the fruit to hit the final Crate.  Collect the Gem and

          A lot of Crates to break this time.  Start by jumping on the first Crate
     to the right.  After breaking it, bounce up to hit the Crate above, then land
     on the Pants Crate.  Bounce off the Pants Crate to hit another Crate above,
     then land on the Spring Crate.  Quickly jump up to hit the Crate high in the
     air.  Spin as you land to break the Spring Crate.
          Hurry to the right and spin into the Castle Riptoc.  Continue right and
     jump on the Crate.  Bounce up to hit the '1' Crate, then land to the right.
     Jump up on the three Crates and, after hitting the third Crate, bounce up to
     hit a Crate above you.  Land to the right and hit the Crate on top of the
     Nitro.  Jump to the right and bounce across the 5 Crates and '3' Crate.  Land
     to the right, hit the Crate, and jump over the Spears.  Continue right and
     jump up across the three Crates.  Avoid the Nitro to the right, instead
     jumping to the left across another four Crates.  Make sure that you bounce
     into a Crate and a '2' Crate above, but it's pretty unlikely that you'd miss
     them anyway.  Land on the platform and hit the Nitro Switch Box.  Collect the

     to defeat another 3 Bats, then launch a bomb to destroy a Crate on the floor.
          Next, you'll have to get past a series of 3 spikes.  Wait for them to

     then launch a rocket into the Nitro above.  Quickly head back down and fire
     like crazy to defeat the Bats and destroy another Nitro and a Crate.  Head
     past some more spikes, then defeat the Castle Riptoc.  Stay near the top and
     shoot a rocket into the Nitro.  Head all the way down and shoot the Crate
     there (the rocket should go through the Crate and hit another Crate, too).
     Now quickly go to the middle and shoot the Nitro there.  Stay in the middle
     and destroy the two Crates as you emerge.
          Head back down and shoot the Nitro and Crate.  Carefully fly past the
     spikes and shoot the Lab Assistant.  Next, destroy the two Crates.
     Immediately fly down and destroy the two Nitros in the lower path.  Defeat
     the Bats and the Lab Assistant, then destroy the two Crates on the ground.
     Defeat another Lab Assisant and stay near the bottom.  Shoot three rockets
     into the two Crates and Nitro, then head up and destroy the three Crates
     there.  Head past the spikes and destroy the final Nitro with a bomb.  Go
     up, defeath the Lab Assistant, and collect your winnings.

          This can be a really frustrating boss if you don't know what you're
     doing.  What you have to do is shoot the solid Bat, and not the see-through
     ones.  After you shoot the solid ones, the bats will disappear briefly, and
     Ripto will send out 3 fireballs.  Stay in the middle of the screen and shoot
     rockets at him, then quickly dodge the fireballs.  Of course, that's the easy
     part.  After two hits, another enemy will come that you can't defeat, and will
     shoot stuff down at you.
          Your best bet is to stay at the bottom of the screen (Bats can never
     touch you there) and kept shooting bombs to stop the geysers that appear on
     the bottom. Don't shoot a bomb when Bat is near you, though, because it WILL
     hit the bat).  Do your best to not shoot the bats at all, because their shots
     can be very hard to avoid.  Or, if you must shoot them, do it when the bats
     are still on the far right and you're on the far left, so by the time the
     shots arrive near you they'll have spread out.  Wait for the solid Bat to
     appear then shoot it to make Ripto vulnerable again.
          It only takes 3 hits to defeat Ripto, so try to save Aku Aku for when
     the Riptoc with a jet pack arrives.  Not too bad when you know what you're
     doing.

          Another Helicopter Mini-Game, but thankfully its the last of its kind.  A
     bit more difficult than previous games of its kind, mostly due to an overall
     increase in the speed of the Tanks' descent.
          Green parachutes fall the fastest, blue falls slower than green, red
     falls about as fast as blue, and orange falls the slowest.  Although orange
     and red fall relatively slow, you may want to concentrate on them after
     shooting down any green since Tanks with orange and red parachutes fire back
     at you.  Also remember that you must shoot at the parachute if the Tank is
     surrounded by a force field. 
          Destroy 25 tanks to receive the Crystal.

          Head right and fall down.  Follow the Wumpa to land on a Spring Crate.
     Use the Spring Crate to bounce to the Crate on the left and Pants Crate to the
     right, then bounce back to the Spring Crate and spin into it to destroy it.
     Follow the Wumpa to hit the next 3 Crates.  After the third Crate, make sure
     you follow the Wumpa so you can avoid two Nitros and land on another Crate.
     Stay still to land on a Bouncy Crate.  Bounce on it 5 times, then jump to the
     left and bounce on another Bouncy Crate until it breaks.
          Next, head back to the middle of the screen to land on a TNT.  Fall down
     to the right of it to avoid a Nitro, then follow the Wumpa Fruit to hit
     another Crate.  Follow the Wumpa Fruit again to avoid another Nitro and land
     on another TNT.  Bounce to the right to set off another 2 TNT Crates, then
     fall down to the right to avoid another Nitro.
          Follow the Wumpa to hit another 3 Crates, then stay near the middle of
     the screen to land on a Bouncy Crate.  Bounce on it until it breaks, then jump
     to the left and hit the Nitro Switch Box to break the remaining Crates.
     Collect the Clear Gem and exit.

          Turbo into the first two Crates, then get ready to jump up twice.  After
     doing so, jump over three Nitros.  This next part can be a little tricky.  Run
     into the Crate at the bottom, then immediately jump up to hit the Crate above.
     Jump over a pit and hit another Crate.
          Next, you'll want to jump over an electric field, then quickly jump over
     a Nitro.  Jump again to hit the two Crates and jump over another Nitro.  Jump
     over yet another Nitro, then land and hit a Crate.  Turbo jump over four pits,
     then run into the next Crate.  Jump onto the Lab Assistant when you see him,
     then jump over a Nitro.  When you go up a slope, make sure you jump to hit
     a Crate.
          Jump over three more pits, then jump over two Nitros.  Jump for the next
     Crate, then land and run into a second Crate, then jump again to break a third
     Crate while simultaneously jumping over a pit.  After you land, jump over
     another Nitro.  Turbo jump over a pit, then jump to break two more Crates.
     Turbo jump over another pit, then jump to break a Crate and to get over an
     electric field (it can be hard to avoid this electric field, so try to keep
     your Aku Aku up to this point).  Jump over another pit and another Nitro, then
     jump to get another two Crates.  Hop over a Nitro and jump over another pit.
          Defeat the Lab Assistant by jumping on him, then jump over another few
     pits.  Hop over another Nitro, then TURBO jump over the last four pits.  Hit
     the Nitro Switch Box and collect the Gem and Crystal, then exit.

          Okay, this is easily the hardest Mini-Game yet, which technically isn't
     saying anything since all of the Mini-Games up until now have been relatively
     easy.  Still, your reflexes will have to be perfect here, as you have lots of
     Crates to destroy and not much time to do it.
          Begin by bouncing across the Pants Crate, TNT, '1' Crate, and normal
     Crate VERY quickly.  After bouncing off the normal Crate, spin to defeat the
     Flying Riptoc and break the Crate on your way down.  Jump to the TNT, then
     fall down and follow the Wumpa Fruit to land on a Crate.  Bounce a bit to the
     right and bounce on the Bouncy Crate until it breaks, then quickly jump on the
     '1' Crate and bounce again to the right.  Jump over the Nitro, then jump while
     in the air to hit the Crate above.  Spin as you fall to the right to defeat
     the Flying Riptoc.
          Next, bounce up to the right and destroy the 5 Crates on the way.  Land
     on the platform and defeat the Castle Riptoc quickly.  Jump on the Crate to
     the right, bounce right and hit the '3' Crate, then land on another Crate and
     bounce to the platform to the right.  Spin into another Riptoc, then jump on
     the Crate to the right.  Bounce over the Nitro and land on another Crate, then
     bounce to the right and jump up to hit the Crate in the air.  Land on the
     Crate below, then bounce to the right and land on another Crate.  Bounce over
     another Nitro and land on the Crate, then jump to the right and hit the Nitro
     Switch Box.  Hurriedly collect the Gem and exit since you'll probably have
     little time left.

     hit them on the side or in the back.

          You only have a minute to defeat Ripto and Cortex, but that's really
     plenty of time.
          First you'll have to destroy the two thrusters on their spaceship.  Each
     of the two thrusters takes 4 hits each.  Stay in the middle to avoid the
     flames that come from each, then start shooting.
          Next, you'll have to destroy a gun turret.  The turret fires shots
     diagonally to the left and right, as well as straight down.  Avoid the shots
     and hit it 4 times to destroy it.
          The next phase involved giant robotic arms.  Each arm has 3 segements
     that take 3 hits each.  Avoid the swinging arms and get in close to destroy
     each segment.  After you destroy them all, the arms will break off.
          The last phase... oh, wait, there is no last phase.  Yes, that was it.
     You just beat the game.  Now go away.

    Polar Card
    ----------
    Likely the one Card that most people will miss.  Special thanks to RygBamboo,
    fakecortex, and mozepy for finding out how to get this elusive Card!
    
    To receive the Polar Card, you MUST link up with another Crash:Purple game, and
    it will be automatically added to your collection.  Again, it MUST be
    Crash:Purple, and NOT Spyro:Orange.  One wonders why they did this.  I mean, I
    bought both Crash:Purple and Spyro:Orange, but don't know anyone else with
    them.  Unless there's a hidden code to access the Polar Card, I'll be left with
    an incomplete collection, and I'm sure others will be in a similar situation.
