    Introduction
    *************************************************************************
    
              Hi everyone!!! This is my very first FAQ (still working on 
    South Park Rally PSX) so please enjoy it and I hope that this will help. 
    First of all, I'm Mexican, I made this FAQ in English because I can earn 
    extra point in English with this (yay!) so if you find some or a lot of 
    words spelled wrong I ask you to be patient. If you see a mistake FROM 
    THE GAME NOT GRAMMAR I will be glad if you let me know. 
    
    *************************************************************************
    The game
    *************************************************************************
              I am a big fan of Crash's non-adventure games, specially this 
    one, this game is like Mario Party N64 or that new party game of Sonic 
    for Dreamcast, in these games the most important thing is those fun 
    creative mini-games, the fact is that these are very simple and easy to 
    play and that all of them are multi player games.
    
              The history is very simple, Aku Aku and Uka Uka are talking 
    about all the fights that they had for the crystals and they agree that 
    there's one way to solve this… a contest where there's only one winner 
    and this will decide once for all who gets the crystals.
    
              There is also a secret code to unlock a Spyro: Year of the 
    Dragon demo. At the SCE screen, hold the R1+L1+[] buttons and press 
    start. WARNING: This may cause your game to crash, get it?, crash (lol)
    
    *************************************************************************
    Options
    *************************************************************************
              When you press X in the Crash Bash screen you will see 4 
    options:
        -Adventure: you'll have to beat this mode to unlock all the secret 
    mini-games *1 or 2 players*.
        
        -Battle: you can practice mini-games or play with someone else *1 to 
    4 players*.
        
        -Tournament: you can play a tournament of a mini-game with 4 
    different arenas, the one who has the most number of trophies is the 
    winner *1 to 4 players*.
        
        -Options: you can change the options of the game, such as the 
    vibration of the controller or the sound.

      @Crash and Coco Bandicoot: our heroes. In crate crush they will be able 
    to move while kicking crates but they will walk really slow while picking 
    up a crate. Since they are small, they will be an easy target in polar 
    push. In tank wars they will fire an orange thing that will move really 
    slow, but it will bounce a lot before disappearing.

       Crash ball
         Be careful when a ball is going too fast, if the opponents send you 
    2 or 3 ball at the same time, use the L1 and R1 buttons.
    
       GEM Same as above, the only difference is that you have less balls so 
    be careful.
    
       CRYSTAL No more extra kick. This will be pretty difficult because the 
    extra kick also gives you more hit range.
    
    
       Ok, next we panic- polar panic that is
    
       Polar panic
         Practice this level because the other 3 are more difficult, take 
    advantage of the protection and the prizes that the beam gives you.
    
       GEM Knock off the others quickly, there is no time for lightnings or 
    weights.
      
       CRYSTAL The thunderbolt will follow you so be careful. Your best bet 
    in here is to get lightnings or weights,
    
    
       Do you have any paint??? I'll need it for the pogo painter level, 
    which is the next.
    
       Pogo painter
         Try to get all the speedy boots, they will be a lot of help and try 
    to get all the arrows too.
    
       GEM More points to score, take advantage of the arrows and the speedy 
    boots.
    
       CRYSTAL This is an annoying challenge. The mushrooms will like to 
    appear right in front of you and when you have the speedy boots you cant 
    stay in the same place so be careful.
    
    
       Any cake left??? We can use a jungle bash party right now.
    
       Jungle bash
         If your not good kicking or throwing boxes try to stay with the most 
    energy, and remember, the TNT crates cause more damage.
    
       GEM Now you will have to eliminate the others and you are against the 
    time, you won't win by having the most health so use the TNT crates.
    
       CRYSTAL The idol will throw nitro crates, what you can do in here is 
    to get close to an opponent and when the idol throws a crate, run like 
    the wind.
    
      
       Papu pummel          Need: 4 trophies.
         It's time to fight Papu Papu. It's the same as jungle bash level. 
    You have to jump the spinning squares and bash the Crash clones. Then, 
    grab a box when the fire ring is down and throw it at Papu Papu. After 
    that get away of the crates because Papu Papu will make them explode. 
    Repeat the process 3 times, and when he slams the ground the 3rd time, a 
    piece of the idol will crush him, and you win.
         
    
    
         WARP ROOM 2
       
       Beach ball
         Watch out when the character in front of you attracts a lot of balls 
    and use the L1 and R1 buttons as well.
    
       GEM this one is pretty easy, just defend your goal with the odds 
    against you.
    
       CRYSTAL now this one is hard. Your opponents will have intermittent 
    shields and the shield will switch from one opponent to another.
    
    
       Tilt panic
         Watch out for the walrus, it will move the platform a lot.
    
       GEM Be quick knocking off your opponents.
      
       CRYSTAL The storm will move the platform a lot so be careful. Be sure 
    to bump your opponents or you will easily fall.
    
    
       Pogo-a-gogo
         Try to encircle areas taking advantage of the edges of your color.
    
       GEM Grab a lot of boots and arrows if you want to win. My technique is 
    to just encircle areas on the edge of your color.
    
       CRYSTAL Grab the speedy boots and encircle the biggest area that you 
    can, use the arrows too.
    
    
       Space bash
         Watch out for the holes, if you touch a nitro crate, you will surely 
    fall. Try to kick the explosive crates to your opponents because there is 
    a chance that the explosion will make a hole right under your opponents.
    
       GEM Use the same technique.
    
       CRYSTAL You wont be able of picking up the crates and there are only 
    explosive crates so be prepare prepared for a lot of holes.
    
    
       Desert fox
         The mines will do a lot of damage, take advantage of them.
    
       GEM Eliminate your opponents quickly, try to hit them with the mines.
    
       CRYSTAL The water perils will do a lot of damage, but they will damage 
    your opponents too.
    
    
       Bearminator          Need: 9 trophies, 6 gems and 3 crystals. 
         This one is like polar push. Bearminator will send a bear with a 
    missile, you can't bump the bear while he has the missile, just move a 
    lot so the missile won't hit you, if it does, you will cannot move and 
    the bear will knock you off, after he launches the missile, the bear will 
    start moving so knock him off quickly. After that you will receive a 
    missile, hit Bearminator and he will launch a bomb that will destroy a 
    part of the platform and then he will send 2 robots knock them off and 
    you will receive a missile, hit Bearminator and he will destroy another 
    part of the stage, then he will send 3 robots, knock them off, hit 
    Bearminator with the missile and you will win.
    
    
    
         WARP ROOM 3
    
       N. Ballism
         This game is pretty hard because if N. Gin, try to grab all the 
    force fields that appear on your corners.
    
       GEM If you make good use of the R1 and L1 buttons it shouldn't be that 
    hard.
    
       CRYSTAL N. Gin will only attack your goal so this one is really hard. 
    Try to get the force field.
    
    
       Melt panic
         Watch out for Uka Uka, he can stand right over your character and 
    turn you into a snowball or a ice statue.
    
       GEM Hard, hard, hard. Be careful of those annoying Uka Uka's beam.
    
       CRYSTAL Another hard one. Be SURE to hit your opponents or you will go 
    down because you can't save yourself from falling.
    
    
       El pogo loco
         This one is pretty easy, just watch out for the TNT crates and try 
    to grab all the arrows, and encircle areas as well.
    
       GEM  Try to encircle big areas or you will fail in this one.
    
       CRYSTAL In this one Ripper Roo gets really annoying, don't touch the 
    Nitro squares and be careful because  Ripper Roo will try to encircle YOU 
    with his explosive squares.
    
    
       Snow bash
         Here is my technique for this one: wake up the penguin and then stay 
    in the middle of the level and when the penguin is getting closer just go 
    to one corner, this way, the penguin will hit all of your enemies (well, 
    it works for me).
    
       GEM Use the same technique but try to hit your opponents as well.
    
       CRYSTAL Win with the handicap of slippery shoes, the same technique 
    for the gem.
    
    
       Metal fox
         Try to grab all the little bombs so you can easily hit your 
    opponents and don't place mines if you cant escape.
    
       GEM kill those #!&%$@ quickly.
    
       CRYSTAL the plane will only drop mines, if one of those hits you, you 
    are dead.
    
    
       Dot dash 
         Only use the turbo where there is protection, so you wont fall and 
    try to hit your opponents.
    
       GEM Same as above.
    
       CRYSTAL here is my technique: always be behind of those who have 
    missiles, then grab fruits and bump them with your turbo so they wont hit 
    you.
    
    
       Big Bad Fox               Need: 15 trophies, 10 gems and 7 crystals.
         This is the deal: rotate your turret and keep moving so you can hit 
    the first and the second weapons, be careful with the third, tough, 
    because it fires missiles. Then, you have to battles the Komodo brothers 
    face-to-face so use your missiles and grab a lot of Wumpa fruit.
    
    
    
         WARP ROOM 4
    
         From here on you can earn a gold relic in each level, you will need 
    those to unlock Splash Dash and Mallet Mash, and for the platinum relic I 
    will tell you later.
    
       Sky balls
         This is like the first one, only add the failing engines.
    
       GEM I think this one is easy.
    
       CRYSTAL this one is hard. You need a really good eye to see which 
    balls turn red or else…
    
    
       Manic Panic
         If you are not a good bumper you can always count on bombs.
    
       GEM Use the bombs.
    
       CRYSTAL So you are on foot, but you can use bombs.
    
    
       Pogo padlock
         Use all the missiles that you can so you will steal squares from 
    other players or just use padlocks.
    
       GEM You better go with missiles.
    
       CRYSTAL The only way to color squares is by stealing them from other 
    players so try to not step on one square from your color.
    
    
       Drain bash
         The items will make this  a piece of cake.
    
       GEM You will need items or it will be really hard to win.
    
       CRYSTAL I you kick ? crates, they will kill you, so throw them to a 
    safe place.
    
    
       Jungle fox   
         Be careful of the totem pole because it will jump and hit you, also 
    use missiles.
    
       GEM Missiles is the answer (mines too).
    
       CRYSTAL If the totem attack hits you, you wont automatically lose, but 
    it will cause a lot of damage.
    
    
       Toxic dash
         Make good use of the red stars and try to avoid the barrels and 
    those little green things.
    
       GEM Use the same technique.
    
       CRYSTAL If you fall you will accelerate very slow so avoid falling.
    
    
       Ring ding
         Here is my technique: pop a black balloon so you can turn all the 
    balloons into your color and then grab a vacuum cleaner.
    
       GEM I Don't know if there is something funny with my disc because in 
    the gem challenge because those balloons that switched color with a black 
    balloon wont count, so just use the vacuum cleaner.
    
    
       Oxide ride              Need: 22 trophies, 15 gems and 12 crystals
         At last, the final boss (I think). First avoid everything (and I 
    mean EVERYTHING) until you get to that screen, then you will challenge N. 
    Oxide to a one-on-one ballistix game, be careful of the missiles that he 
    fires to you and just like the crystal of sky balls, avoid the red balls.
    
    
         Congratulations!!!!!!!
       You have one more challenge… the warp room 5, you will find new levels 
    but no boss (I think) and when you unlock 3 or 4 of them…
    
                                                 To be continued…
