    Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex (TWoC) is very similar to Crash Bandicoot 
    3: Warped in almost every way. However, most of the levels are longer and 
    harder compared to Warped. As we know, in time trial, you have to beat the 
    level without dying. Longer and harder levels mean that you will die more often 
    when attempting time trial. This is the main reason why time trial in this game 
    is not as popular as Warped's time trial.
    
    However, there is a programming short-sight that allows us to take an Aku Aku 
    mask into time trial without losing it when we touch the clock. We can even 
    bring in two Aku Aku masks (otherwise known as Golden Aku Aku mask) to time 
    trial! (for more bugs/glitches, check out Section VII). Just remember that for 
    most running levels, this is a compulsory requirement in order to beat the 
    Master Time. For what the Master Time is, please read the very first part of 
    Section III.
    
    Another reason why the time trial in this game is not as popular as Warped's is 
    because the times set for platinum relics seem to be a bit random and untested. 
    Platinum relics for some levels - mainly plane levels (i.e. level 2, 9, 18) and 
    secret warp room levels (i.e. level 26-30) - are way too easy to obtain whereas 
    some longer running levels (such as level 17 and 22) are really difficult for 
    beginner and intermediate players. That's why in some later versions of this 
    game (for Gamecube and X-Box), some relic times have been adjusted in order to 
    bring the difficulty down a little bit.
    
    The bazooka control in this game is vastly different from Warped's bazooka. In 
    Warped, you would find it very difficult to move the target of the bazooka and 
    you can't target objects outside the screen. In TWoC, you would notice that the 
    bazooka control is pretty easy and you are allowed to shoot objects outside the 
    screen, which means the bazooka has a longer shooting range compared to Warped. 
    This long range shooting ability is very useful in order to shoot the clock 
    from as far as possible in some running levels. This isn't really possible in 
    Warped due to the awkward control and the short range of the bazooka.
    
    There are 30 levels in TWoC, same as Warped. The level length in TWoC is 
    generally longer, but there is a ridiculous amount of time boxes in each level. 
    For example, Level 1 in TWoC, Arctic Antics, is longer than Level 1 in Warped, 
    Toad Village, but Arctic Antics has over 100 boxes, and so you would expect 
    there would be a lot of time boxes too. And yes, there are heaps of time boxes. 
    Boxes that usually stay the same in Warped, such as nitros and TNTs can also 
    turn into time boxes in TWoC, adding more time boxes. 
    
    As has been said above, you can bring in 2 Aku Aku masks to time trial in TWoC, 
    but the invincibility (when you collected 3 Aku Aku masks) does not give you 
    additional running speed (Warped gives you extra speed while invincible). 
    Moreover, the invincibility is only last for a few seconds (finished faster 
    than Warped), so invincibility hardly gives any advantages, other than you can 
    destroy all enemies and crates that are blocking your way. This sole advantage 
    is the reason why invincibility in TWoC is still important. In TWoC, jumping, 
    spinning and (especially) hanging on a bar will slow you down significantly, 
    unlike Warped where they won't slow you too much. Therefore, you should be able 
    to go faster with invincibility because you don't need to spin or jump to 
    destroy enemies and crates. 
    
    There are also some very helpful technical glitches that are allowed to be used 
    for getting the best time. These glitches are the "invisible floor" glitch and 
    Crashteroids glitch (see Section VII for more details). However, Wizards and 
    Lizards glitch IS NOT ALLOWED for setting a record because the glitch makes you 
    finish the level in under one second with NO SKILL REQUIRED WHATSOEVER, which 
    defeats the purpose of time trial. Moreover, the Wizards and Lizards glitch can 
    only work in the original NTSC PS2 version of TWoC, so if it is allowed, this 
    would give a very BIG unfair advantage to those who own this version.
    
    In conclusion, when comparing to Warped, the records for TWoC are generally 
    faster, even though the levels are longer, as demonstrated in the example above
    - you can get a faster time in Arctic Antics than in Toad Village, although 
    Arctic Antics is far longer. 
    
    You will enjoy the time trial in this game if you like Warped's time trial. 
    However, you WILL get frustrated on your first few attempts due to the high 
    probability of failing. Just keep on practicing, follow this guide and soon you
    should be able to get all the Platinum, and even beating some Master Times!
    
    Good luck!

    This section will be divided into 30 parts for each level. Each level section 
    will start with the level number, followed by the title of the level in 
    English. Then, the time for all in-game relics, Master Time, my best time, best 
    time achieved by another player and LTP (Lowest time possible) will be provided 
    as a reference. Note that the relic times in this guide are from the PAL PS2 
    version of this game. Let's look at what each of these times refers to:
    
    oo----------oo
    |  Sapphire  |
    o------------o
    Time for this relic is easily beaten. You should have no problem with this at 
    all. This is the minimum requirement to complete the game. All sapphire relics 
    can be gained without the running shoes (i.e. before you finish the game).
    
    oo------oo
    |  Gold  |  (-x:xx.xx = difference between Gold and Sapphire)
    o--------o
    The time for this relic was set with all Crash Bandicoot players in mind - from 
    beginner, intermediate to highly skilled players. All players was expected to 
    get at least gold relics for full game completion. For some, this may be a 
    challenging task to do, but for others, they can beat the gold times easily.
    
    oo----------oo
    |  Platinum  |  (-xx:xx.xx = difference between Platinum and Gold)
    o------------o 
    This relic is not for everyone. The players need to practice a lot and know the 
    level inside out in order to get the platinum relic. If you follow the 
    strategies outlined in this guide and practice your skill diligently, you 
    should be able to beat the Platinum times with ease.
    
    oo-------------oo
    |  Master time  |  (-xx:xx.xx = difference between Master Time and Platinum)
    o---------------o
    The Master Time is an unofficial benchmark set by me, which is similar to the 
    "Developer Time" of Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped. The time is not shown in the 
    game. This is the time that you should achieve if you understand the strategies 
    outlined in this guide and practice them with dedication. Beating Master Time 
    will give you a huge sense of accomplishment (just like beating the "Developer 
    Time" in Warped) and show people that you have mastered that level in time 
    trial.
    
    oo---------oo
    |  My time  |  (-xx:xx.xx = difference between My Time and Master Time)
    o-----------o
    This is my personal best record. This is pretty hard to beat since I have been 
    playing this game for quite some time now. You may beat a few of my times 
    easily, but some of them are (probably) world records. However, nothing is 
    perfect. There are always room for improvements.
    
    oo-----------oo
    |  Best time  |  (-xx:xx.xx = difference between Best Time and Master Time)
    o-------------o
    This is the best time achieved by other players who have played this game 
    competitively.
    
    oo----------------------------oo  (-xx:xx.xx = difference between LTP and
    |  LTP (Lowest Time Possible)  |   Best/My Time whichever is lower)
    o------------------------------o  
    LTP is a theoretical lowest time possible using strategies outlined in this 
    guide. All LTPs is supposed to be impossible to beat as you are expected to 
    NEVER get any lower than the time specified here. LTP is calculated using a 
    theoretical perfect run if you follow everything in this guide, minus few 
    milliseconds. However, as new strategies surfaced, some LTP may be broken and 
    need to be revised.
    
    ________________________________
    
    After all of these information listed, the strategy on how to get the best time 
    will follow. This strategy is designed to help you beat the Master Time, so if 
    you only want to get the platinum, you may want to skip some difficult tricks 
    along the line. The strategy will assume that you bring no Aku Aku to the 
    level. The strategy may also refer you to a video that can be found in the 
    links part at the end of each level section. The links part will provide all 
    the links to proofs that have been posted over the internet for that level 
    (either a full run video or just a screenshot). Let me know if any of the links 
    are down.
    
    Note that sometimes I may give you specific frozen times break down along the 
    way in a level. The times were estimated from what I experienced while playing  
    time trial in the level. Usually when I said xx.xx - xx.xx (e.g. 5.80 - 6.30), 
    the lowest time in the range can only be achieved with a very good run and some 
    luck, so if you are on the higher end or just a bit over the range (1 or 2 sec 
    over the range is ok), don't worry too much, you will still be able to get 
    platinum relic easily. However, you may just miss out on beating the Master 
    Time. Just keep practising. Getting the average of the range is considered 
    "very good". Getting lower than this range means that you should be able to 
    beat My Time easily if everything runs perfectly until the end.
    
    And if you haven't realised it yet, I haven't successfully done all the tricks 
    I wrote in this guide for all levels because if I did, I should have beaten all 
    the Best Time from other players. I have got 15 BEST TIME EVER (BTE) for time 
    trial in this game so far. Some may be beaten easily because I have not done 
    every tricks in the level perfectly. However, because I have the best time for 
    that level, this basically means no one else has effectively executed all the 
    tricks too. If you do, I am sure you will beat My Time.
    
    Credits section at the end of each level is provided to acknowledge every 
    person who has shared their strategies with me. When there are no credits for 
    techniques, glitches or tricks listed on that level, then that means I learned 
    these strategies with no reference from external sources (such as the Tornado 
    Alley order for destroying the generator) or they are common strategies (such 
    as cutting corners and get all the time boxes).
    
    Note that for the best time on all running levels, you must have a running 
    shoes super power, which you can obtain by defeating the last boss for the 
    first time. You need to keep on running ALL THE TIME by holding R2 down at all 
    times (exception is when you are hanging or in a machine).
    
    With all these in mind, let's start!

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    First of all, get yourself a golden Aku Aku mask. This can be done by doing the 
    time trial, get the Aku Aku box after the second seals march, then restart 
    trial. Repeat once more to get a golden Aku Aku mask.
    
    Once you have a golden Aku Aku mask, it's time to start your championship run. 
    Shoot the clock using bazooka from the three crates ahead, preferably from 
    BEHIND the boxes, NOT in front of the boxes (it is easier from the front but 
    that will waste approximately 10 milliseconds). Spin the boxes right after the 
    time trial starts, so you should have 0.02 - 0.10 now. Then run, avoid seals, 
    cut corner, spin the time box (DON'T JUMP while running) and get invincibility 
    from the Aku Aku box. Small jump over the pit.
    
    Cut another corner by small jump over the pit, then get all time boxes in your 
    way. Your invincibility should run out when you pass the two normal crates 
    stack together on the ice. Normal jump over the pit and spin the 2 sec time box 
    on top of a TNT. Your time should be 9.60 - 10.00 now.
    
    Small jump the pit where the whale jumps. Spin the next time box. Normal jump 
    passed the TNT on its right but spin before you land so you don't waste an Aku 
    Aku mask and get stuck in the TNT box stack. Sometimes you need to spin the ice 
    skater which may cost you 10 to 20 milliseconds. For the best time, you may 
    need to restart trial, but otherwise keep going.
    
    Spin the next time box. Avoid spinning penguins. Small jump the first and 
    second pits. Run pass the third small pit. Then small jump all the remaining 
    pits while getting the two time boxes. Time should be 19.40 - 20.00 now.
    
    Cut corner, pass the TNT from the left side (DON'T JUMP) and avoid spinning 
    penguins. Get the two time boxes when you are out of the cave. Now here is the 
    trickiest part of the level to do it properly.
    
    Small jump to the long main island in the middle. Then small jump to 2 sec time 
    box on the right. When you are bouncing from the time box, immediately use 
    double jump and tornado spin to get both 3 sec and 2 sec time boxes ahead. 
    Right after getting the 2 sec time box, jump (normal or small jump depending on 
    where you land after performing the tornado spin) and land behind the switch 
    box. Time should be around 27 seconds now.
    
    Cut corner and spin the last time box (around 29 seconds is good) and run to 
    the warp portal. You may slide to the portal to make it few milliseconds faster 
    but the risk of missing the portal while sliding is very VERY high. So, it's up 
    to you if you want to slide or just run to it. Best bet is, just run.
    
    Voila! You just beat the master time! Congrats! Your time should be 31.20 - 
    31.90.
    
    The second link below shows you how to do this strategy well. The only problem 
    with this video is Stelzig did not shoot the clock at the beginning. If he did, 
    this run will easily beat the Master Time.
    
    The first link shows the difference between the PAL and NTSC versions. On 21.00
    seconds time trial game time in the first video (NTSC video), you can see two
    time boxes behind a box stack, while this doesn't exist in the PAL version. It
    appears that Crash runs a little slower in the NTSC version by about 1.5 second
    in total for this level, so equal run in NTSC version would be about half a
    second faster than its PAL counterpart.

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    Just when you start, turn to the left immediately. Go up a bit until you can 
    see a normal crate balloon, then turn right so you are now in line with a 
    health balloon nearby. Then keep shooting the 1st balloon - not the box - 
    behind the health balloon (see diagram below for location) when you are just 
    beside the health balloon. When you feel your next few bullets will hit the 
    balloon, quickly turn around and shoot the clock while moving your plane to the 
    second time box. You must do this very very fast. So, when you start, you 
    should have between 0.00 - 0.60 with 6 seconds frozen time from the two time 
    boxes you cracked earlier. Check video on link #2 for visual aid. Link #3 shows 
    more difficult technique by Slazzy. Both results should be similar. Note that 
    you must do this very fast, otherwise the 1st box may hit the ground already 
    before you start the time trial, which means you will lose 3 seconds.
    
    An alternative easier but slower method is:
    Just when you start, turn to the left immediately. Then go behind the 2nd time 
    box (see diagram), then shoot the balloon and the clock from there... Note that 
    this method is slower than the first method as you don't take the other time 
    box.
    
    This is the diagram:
    
    ............5...........
    ........................
    6.......................
    .......................4
    ...B1...................
    ........................
    ....H.......3...........
    ........................
    ............C...........
    ...B2...................
    ............S...........
    ........................
    1......................2
    
    Note: NOT TO SCALE
    S = start point
    C = the clock to start time trial
    H = the health balloon
    B1 = the first balloon you should shoot before starting time trial
    B2 = the second balloon you should shoot before starting time trial
    ... and then shoot the tornado generator in the order I have put.
    
    Follow the order as shown in the diagram. Shoot all time boxes (the red 
    balloons). You can shot the box or the balloon. However for the last two time 
    boxes, you must shoot the box, NOT the balloon as it takes too long for the box 
    to hit the ground, so you would lose a lot of frozen milliseconds if you don't 
    shoot the box. 
    
    For the best time, you also need some luck and 100% accuracy, i.e. quickly move 
    on when you know you have shot enough bullets to destroy the generator, even 
    before the generator is destroyed.

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    Note that to get the best time, you SHOULD NOT wait even a single frame for the 
    first elevator platform to come down. The platform should be on the ground and 
    when you are on it, it should move up immediately. The platform stays at the 
    exact same place where it was on your previous time trial attempt. So, wait for 
    the platform to be on the ground, then restart trial. On your next time trial 
    attempt, the platform should be on the ground for you to roll on to.
    
    Move on as fast as you can. Conserve momentum and get all time boxes. Watch the 
    video (link #1) to learn the techniques required for this level.
    
    Some improvements that can be made from the video (link #1):
    You can cut the first spiral by jumping to the lower part. To cut the first 
    spiral, you should be in the lower half of the spiral before getting the 1 sec 
    time box, then roll as fast as possible to the top part getting the 1 sec time 
    box, and then you should jump out of the spiral before it begins to turn. This 
    means you will have to miss a 2 sec time box. If you get the 2 sec time box, it 
    will slow you down and you will not be able to jump to the lower part. You 
    should have 5.20 - 5.60 when getting the 3 sec time box underneath.
    
    Highlights from the video (link #1):
    In the video, Fethy used the fence to gain more speed, in particular when he 
    climbed the hill right after the first spiral. This is very hard to do and 
    require specific angle to perform this successfully. You may need some practice 
    so you can do this without decreasing your speed. He used the fence technique 
    once more just before he got the time box near nitro on the optional left way.
    
    Note that once you get this time box beside nitro and all 3 sec time boxes on 
    this dead-end, the time should be frozen for the rest of the level. So, if you 
    don't get the record you want at this point, you may want to restart trial, or 
    just practice for the later part of the level.
    
    To maintain the frozen time, you should get the time boxes up high using the 
    elevator just after you coming out from the dead-end. You also have to cut the 
    third spiral, like what you did on the first spiral. To do this properly, you 
    need to stop right after you jump out of the spiral, so you should fall on the 
    downhill and gain enough speed to roll up fast on the next uphill. If you roll 
    full speed when jumping down on the third spiral, you will be struggling to go 
    uphill. This may break the frozen time you should have kept to the end. 
    
    After the spiral, get all the time boxes and choose the bottom way where there 
    is a stack of 4 nitros blocking the way (NOT the one with the elevator). You 
    can roll pass the stack from the side and immediately break the nearest two 
    time boxes (see video). If you miss these two time boxes, the time would get 
    unfrozen and you will lose a few milliseconds. Then just roll to the end warp 
    to get your record saved!

    the reason, check Section VII of this guide.
    
    First of all, get yourself a golden Aku Aku mask. To do this fast, play the 
    time trial until you are chased by a dragon (or a big lizard?). You should be 
    able to get the 2 Aku Aku in one run. Once you have a golden Aku Aku, restart 
    trial.
    
    Before you begin the time trial, go and defeat all the enemies up to the first 
    checkpoint crate: 3 shield knights, 2 bats (note that one of them is harmless 
    so you can leave it if you want), and the wizard. Just be careful, NOT to slide 
    the last shield knight, as if you slide him, there is a very good chance that 
    he will fly into the box behind him which happens to be a checkpoint crate. 
    Breaking a checkpoint crate will make the clock disappear so you will not be 
    able to start time trial. You have to go back to the warp room and then come 
    back to the level (after waiting forever for the loading), so the clock will be 
    there again. Therefore, just double jump on to the last shield knight, DON'T 
    slide him.
    
    Once you cleared all the enemies, stand just to the left of where the first bat 
    was. You will then have to shoot the clock with the bazooka from there. The 
    clock is a bit to the left. Just after shooting the clock, quickly move the 
    target of your bazooka a bit to the right to shoot the 2 time boxes there. 
    Shoot twice to break both time boxes. This is very hard to do unless you have 
    been practicing a lot. Once you have done these a lot of times, you will notice 
    that when you stand on a specific pixel of the floor, you can learn where 
    exactly you should move the target of the bazooka in order to shoot the clock 
    and the time boxes 90% of the time successfully.
    
    Once that's done, run to the right following the way. After you get your first 
    invincibility, the time should be around 3 seconds. While being chased, do a 
    small jump to get the 3 sec time box above the fire pit. Land on the right side 
    of the pit, then run on the right side of the barrel just beside the pit. It 
    may take few practices before you can run between the barrel and the pit safely 
    (without falling down to the pit). No need to jump.
    
    Don't get the second Aku Aku box on the left side; it wastes time. Just run as 
    straight as possible and get all the time boxes. Small jump all the pits that 
    is in your way, and also small jump the nitro line. If you can avoid pits and 
    boxes, AVOID them because spinning or jumping will slow you down. At the part 
    where there are 6 boxes and 2 of them are time boxes, just spin them once, and 
    then spin the time box close to them (NOT tornado spin - just normal spin 
    twice). 
    
    On the side scrolling part of the level, slide into all the knights. DON'T jump 
    over any normal crates, always spin them. At the 1 sec time box and a normal 
    crate with a nitro on top of them, just slide into the time box. Alternatively, 
    you can spin it to get faster time, but the nitro must not fall on you because 
    if it does, it will slow you down a lot. At the last nitro stack, you should 
    still have an extra Aku Aku mask, so you can just spin the closest nitro to 
    destroy everything. Then quickly run to the exit portal while the clock is 
    still frozen.

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    First of all, get yourself a golden Aku Aku mask. One Aku Aku mask is also ok. 
    You can bring them from another level. Alternatively, this can be done by doing 
    the time trial in this level (may take a long time, but I think it is still 
    faster than all those loadings we need to sustain if we go to another level 
    ... plus you can practice this level too. Double Bonus!).
    
    The closest two Aku Aku boxes in this level are at the factory part. The first 
    one is just after the TNTs and normal crates stack. The second one is on the 
    pit just after the three green laser things in the side scrolling part of the 
    factory section.
    
    Once you got the golden Aku Aku, restart trial. At the start wait a little 
    before starting. There are two things to notice so you know how long you have 
    been waiting. First, you can start jumping to the mine-cart just when the 3rd 
    steam rises on the left side of the background. Second, you can also start when 
    Aku Aku is looking at you (the player) or Crash. The wait is done so that in 
    the later part of the level, the crushers should not block your way if you 
    follow this strategy properly (i.e. you are fast enough). Otherwise, you may 
    just want to try to find your own timing in order to suit your speed.
    
    In the mine-cart part, ALWAYS hold the control stick up. You should have 1.20 - 
    1.30 when taking the first alternative route (left one). Then take the second 
    alternative route (right one, after the yellow gem path) and still getting all 
    time boxes. Avoid nitros, get all time boxes and the time should be 9.20 - 9.40 
    when you get out of the mine-cart.
    
    On the running part, avoid all spiky hazards - should be no problem if the 
    timing is right. At the first time box that is high in the air, you need to 
    slide jump and break the crate from its bottom. Alternatively, you can spin it 
    after doing double jump, but this is a bit slower. Land on the other side of 
    the spring crate and TNTs and keep running. Jump over the conveyor belt. At the 
    TNTs and the time boxes, just spin the TNT to destroy all the boxes while keep 
    running. Get the Aku Aku. Keep jumping over all conveyor belts. The only 
    conveyor belt you don't need to jump is the first belt in the side scrolling 
    section with green lasers on it as it moves favourably. At these green lasers, 
    just run through all of them, losing one of your Aku Aku mask.
    
    From the last green laser, double jump and spin the 3 sec time box up high then 
    fall down to the two 3 sec time boxes while spinning to break them plus the Aku 
    Aku box nearby. The "invisible floor" glitch will work here. Quickly jump back 
    up to the iron boxes when you have broken the time boxes. Alternatively, after 
    you get the 3 sec time box up high, you can fall down on to the iron spring 
    crate and from there, jump to the right side of the two 3 sec time boxes, land 
    on the iron box, then spin the two 3 sec time boxes standing just beside them. 
    This alternative method is arguably faster than the first method, however, you 
    will not get the Aku Aku box (not really necessary).
    
    If you have done this properly, the next two crushers should not block your 
    way. Otherwise, just wait until they move up. If you don't get block by the 
    crushers, you will beat the Master Time easily. Next, jump on all the time 
    boxes over the pit (preferably using small jumps) and to the black floor ahead. 
    At the end of the side scrolling section of the level, you can dodge the mad 
    scientist that throws blue things by running downwards passed him. Note that 
    spinning will slow you down. 
    
    Keep on running in the shortest route to the exit portal, ignoring all the 
    green lasers. You may not have an Aku Aku mask here, which is not a problem. If 
    the lasers hit you, you will get slow down a few milliseconds anyway, so you 
    may want to restart trial to achieve the best time. Otherwise, if the laser 
    does not hit you or you have an extra Aku Aku mask, you can keep on running to 
    the exit portal to save your record and you may just beat the Master Time!

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    First of all, get yourself a golden Aku Aku mask. This can be done by getting 
    the nearest Aku Aku box in time trial. Do this twice. Restart trial.
    
    Once you have a golden Aku Aku, cross the bridge before you hit the clock. Spin 
    a man-eater plant here. Then take position just beside the third normal crate 
    on its left and try to shoot the clock from there (see video on link #1 and 
    #2). Right after you launch the bazooka to shoot the clock, immediately move 
    the target a bit to the left to shoot the 3 sec time box just a short distance 
    to the left of the clock. You need to do this as fast as possible to save time. 
    This may take some practice to do, but once you know and get familiar with the 
    specific pixel you need to stand on to shoot the clock (like in Level 4), you 
    can learn where you should move the target of the bazooka in order to shoot the 
    clock and the time box 90% of the time successfully.
    
    Once the trial has started, quickly run to the first box stack and do a double 
    jump then spin to get the 2 sec time box up high. If you are lucky, your single 
    spin may also crack the 1 sec time box below. If you are not so lucky, you will 
    get bounce on the 1 sec time box which is a bit slower. Alternatively, you can 
    slide jump and break the 2 sec time box from its bottom and then bounce on to 
    the 1 sec time box. Nevertheless, you will still miss the Aku Aku box and land 
    on the other side of the stack. Keep on running on the right corner (but don't 
    get stuck) and double jump to break the next time box from the bottom part of 
    the crate or just double jump and spin. Alternatively, you can slide jump to 
    break this crate as shown in the video (link #1), which is faster. Time should 
    be around 2 to 4 seconds now.
    
    Get invincibility from the next Aku Aku box. Normal jump to get the flying 2 
    sec time box on the left and small jump to the 1 sec time box. Keep on running. 
    Then double jump to land on the second iron box stack and then double jump 
    again to get the 3 sec time box up high. Time should be around 12-13 seconds 
    now. Alternatively, you can slide double jump to get the 3 sec time box up 
    high. This alternative way is faster but pretty hard to do. You can see the 
    video (link #1) on how to do this and with this method, your time would freeze 
    at around 11 seconds.
    
    Run around the corner (you can run on the stone) and then double jump to get 
    the 3 sec time box up high. When you get this box, your invincibility should 
    just run out. Then just spin the TNT to get the time box on its left and 
    quickly small jump to a nitro on the right to get all the time boxes there. 
    Keep on running while spinning the next two time boxes. Time should be around 
    14 to 15 seconds. Now is the jeep part.
    
    Avoid the first ramp by going over the pit. Get time box on the second and 
    third ramps. Avoid the fifth ramp by going over the pit again. Get time box 
    from the next ramp and steer the jeep to the left to avoid the next ramp and 
    nitro. You can crash into the nitros on the big jump because you should have an 
    extra Aku Aku at this point (as shown in the video on link #1). Alternatively, 
    you can avoid nitros on the big jump by moving to the right a bit, and save the 
    extra Aku Aku for later use. 
    
    Get all the time boxes and avoid the water when you exit the tunnel. If you are 
    lucky, you may be able to avoid the first ramp when the rhinos come back, but 
    you will most likely fall into the pit, so take the ramp as quick and low as 
    possible and do the same for the next one. Avoid nitro and get all time boxes. 
    If you don't use your Aku Aku on the big jump, you can crash into the nitros 
    here to stay on the right side. Before the end, drive to the right a bit so you 
    will get thrown up from the jeep a bit earlier.
    
    Keep on running and spin the 3 sec time box. Time should be around 51 to 53 
    seconds here. Run across the bridge to the exit portal to save your record! 
    Note that you may need some luck so you don't get slowed down by the movement 
    of the bridge (Crash runs smoothly, like in the video on link #1). Congrats for 
    beating Master Time in this level!

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    First of all, get yourself a golden Aku Aku mask. The Aku Aku box is right at 
    the start so you can do this quickly. Once you get it, let's start time trial.
    
    Remember, in any underwater level with Crash swimming, the general rule for 
    fastest time is that you MUST press X (jump button) and square (spin button) 
    continuously for a complete tornado spin - not just a single spin or quick 
    tornado spin - while still taking the shortest route possible and getting all 
    the time boxes. Don't stop no matter what. Sometimes, you may need to time your 
    spin so you don't get killed by the enemies and not get stuck behind crates. 
    You will be surprised by how much this will save your time.
    
    So let's start. Get the invincibility and all the time boxes on the first part 
    of the level. Be careful when you are inside the first straight tube. Keep on 
    pressing X and square, but be careful not to go up or down too much since you 
    may get stuck here. Keep going fast, down the next tube. Get the two time boxes 
    and Aku Aku box as fast as possible. You should have around 3 seconds now.
    
    Keep on pressing X and square and get all the time boxes. When your 
    invincibility end, there are two time boxes with two normal crates in between. 
    To get these as fast as possible, just spin the bottom time box and move up 
    immediately while still spinning and go to the next tube. Note that Fethy has 
    lost few milliseconds in his video (link #1) in this part.
    
    Quickly get the time box in the tube. On the next part, DO NOT go and get the 2 
    sec time box and Aku Aku box on the left, like what Fethy did on his video 
    (link #1). It wastes almost one second to do that. Just spin the TNT and get 
    all the time boxes after that. Time should be around 7 seconds when you finish 
    the swimming part.
    
    On the machine, use your X and square attack wisely to destroy enemies and 
    boxes (see the video for visual aid). On the first part, just keep pressing 
    right to move the machine on the straightest route possible. On the last tube 
    that goes down, keep pressing X to get all the time boxes below, including the 
    one at the bottom just after the tube so you don't have to go there to break it 
    which will waste you a second. Then go to the left and keep the machine as 
    close as possible to the iron boxes. Drop a torpedo to destroy the nitro stack 
    and time boxes at the bottom, touch the switch box and drop another torpedo to 
    get another time box under a normal crate inside the second iron box opening. 
    Note that the time should be frozen for the rest of the level from the moment 
    you drop a torpedo to the first nitro stack.
    
    Get the time boxes while dropping another torpedo to destroy nitros so you can 
    pass the iron boxes. Keep on moving left, getting all the time boxes and get to 
    the exit portal while the time is still frozen. Congrats for beating Master 
    Time in this level!

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    First of all, get yourself a golden Aku Aku mask. This can be done by doing the 
    time trial and get an Aku Aku mask from the crate just before the maze. Do this 
    twice and you should get a golden Aku Aku mask if you don't die or get hit by 
    the many hazards in this level. Alternatively, you can bring in a golden Aku 
    Aku mask from another level which is NOT recommended.
    
    Once you have the mask, restart trial. Then get the clock while trying to kick 
    the 1 sec time box nearby. Small jump over the pit. Get the hidden 3 sec time 
    box with ONE kick in the box stack to the right. Small jump every pit. Kick the 
    2 sec time box, then immediately small jump through the circular hole. Then 
    normal jump on to the time boxes. Do this once more. Get all the time boxes.
    
    Do a normal jump while kicking the Aku Aku to get invincibility. Kick the TNT 
    to get the time box. Then normal jump to the maze. Time should be 4.20 - 4.60 
    now.
    
    Cut corner in the maze and kick the first time box to save time (even when you 
    have invincibility). Your invincibility should last until a bit just after the 
    first ninja. Then, THIS IS IMPORTANT, kick the next ninja so he got thrown to 
    the time box on top of the nitro on the right side. If the ninja did not crack 
    the box, just restart trial unless you want to practice for the later part of 
    this level. In his video (link #1), Fethy did not do this successfully which 
    means he should be able to save 1 to 2 seconds. The frozen time should be at 
    around 10 seconds now.
    
    Then kick all the lizards and get the time boxes below. Quit the maze and be 
    careful with the fish on the first pit. Only kick if it comes out because 
    kicking wastes a few milliseconds. Quickly normal jump to the spring crate and 
    press X (jump button) exactly at the time you land on the spring crate. Your 
    jump should go higher so you can kick the two time boxes up high in one go by 
    going a bit to the front (see video on link #1). Next, avoid the ninja and kick 
    the two lizards with one kick - twice if you are not so lucky.
    
    Now, get the two 1 sec time boxes as fast as possible by jumping and kicking or 
    just break them one by one by jumping to the bottom part of the crates. 
    Alternatively, you can ignore one of the 1 sec time boxes and just run straight 
    after you break one of them. The alternative method is a bit slower but easier. 
    Move down a bit before small jumping over the pit so the pelican would not ruin 
    your jump. Then kick the box stack once to destroy all. Small jump to the brown 
    platforms and then to the next platform. Be careful with the fish.
    
    Kick the normal crate and small jump to the 1 sec time box. With the bounce
    from this crate, crack the flying 3 sec time box from its bottom. To do this, 
    you must press X (jump button) exactly at the time you land on the 1 sec time 
    box, so the jump you do will be a bit higher - high enough to break that 3 sec 
    time box. Better press the X a little too soon than a little too late. You need 
    some practice to do this properly (see video on link #1). Do NOT kick while 
    doing this. Otherwise, you may hit nitros below. Alternatively, you can kick 
    the 1 sec time box and then small jump to the iron spring crate to get the 3 
    sec time box up high. This alternative method is a bit slower.
    
    Move on and kick the ninja. Normal jump over the pit to land on top of the time 
    box and bounce to the other side of the nitro. Normal jump into the circular 
    opening and avoid the gong hitters. Then kick the nitro on the next box stack, 
    so you get another Aku Aku at the moment you lost one. Then small jump to the 
    iron spring crate.
    
    Do only one jump from the red trampoline to the roof. Kick Aku Aku box to get 
    invincibility. Get the time boxes, small jump over all the fire, then normal 
    jump to the first red trampoline so you can get to the second red trampoline 
    with one jump. Do two jumps on the second trampoline. One to get the 3 sec time 
    box, and the next one is to get to the next roof.
    
    At the end of the roof, do a normal jump to the bottom, then quickly small jump 
    over all the pits. Get the time box up high using the spring crate and kick the 
    spring crate before you land so you don't get bounce up again. Normal jump 
    passed the fire and kick the normal crate. Then quickly run upwards and kick 
    the TNT to get the time box. The time should be frozen from here on.
    
    Kick normal crates that blocking your way and fall down to nitro to get all the 
    time boxes immediately. Kick the TNT and normal crate, and run to the exit 
    portal before the time got unfrozen. You should beat Master Time quite easily 
    if you have done all these!

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    Just when you start, turn to the left immediately. Shoot down all 4 enemy 
    planes while you are getting away from the clock. The enemy will spawn after 
    quite some time so you will have some peaceful time during your run with no 
    suicide planes flying around.
    
    Then turn around and move towards the clock from a bit to the right. Shoot the 
    far north ship from this position and then lock on to the nearest ship before 
    you touch the clock. When the time trial start, quickly shoot the far north 
    ship once more, then take the time box on your right.
    
    Move forward while shooting the ship in front of you twice and getting one time 
    box on the way. Then shoot the ship once more while taking the other time box 
    nearby.
    
    Quickly turn to the right and shoot the nearest ship once and the ship next to 
    it twice. Then turn a bit to the right, taking two time boxes while shooting 
    another ship. Take the next time box while shooting the ship in front of it 
    once. Then turn to the right and move towards the time box while shooting down 
    another ship. Do this once more to the next ship and time box.
    
    3 ships should be down at this point and the time should be frozen at around 10 
    seconds. Quickly turn to the right and destroy the remaining ships. You should 
    be able to beat the Master Time with this strategy.
    
    Note that Fethy has done the opposite strategy (see his video on link #1), i.e. 
    he started by going to the right, then shoot the ship on the left side first, 
    then move anti-clockwise whilst getting all the time boxes (similar to above 
    strategy but opposite direction). I don't know which one is faster. You can 
    choose whichever strategy you want to follow.

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    First of all, get yourself a golden Aku Aku mask. You can bring them from 
    another level. Alternatively, this can be done by doing the time trial of this 
    level (may take a long time, but I think this is still faster than all those 
    loadings we need to sustain if we go to another level to get the golden Aku 
    Aku... plus you can practice this level too. Double Bonus!).
    
    The first Aku Aku can be found just after you finished the underwater section. 
    The second Aku Aku can be found after the second electric water.
    
    Start the time trial by touching the side of the clock and quickly take the 
    first time box, destroy the TNTs and all the enemies on your way. Keep moving 
    on and eliminate all things that get in your way. Drop torpedo when necessary 
    to take time boxes down below. Avoid every falling anchor and you should not 
    use any of your Aku Aku here. Touch the end wall as fast as you can to move on 
    to the running part of the level.
    
    By the time you spin the first time box on the running part, you should have 
    21.60 - 22.20. Spin Aku Aku box and time box with one spin in the first normal 
    water. With invincibility, crash into the TNT and after that, small jump to a 
    higher platform. Then walk in the electric water, getting all time boxes 
    including taking the 3 sec time box up high with double jump. Don't get stuck 
    behind any iron boxes. Small jump to the last iron boxes platform before your 
    invincibility runs out.
    
    Avoid the mad scientists. Small jump over the nitro line. Run on the right side 
    of the box stack, then do a normal jump to bounce on a time box and land on the 
    next iron boxes platform. Do this once more. Then avoid enemies, slide into 
    time boxes below TNTs and spin Aku Aku box to get invincibility again.
    
    Crash into every time boxes and run on the electric water to get all time 
    boxes. Before the invincibility runs out, you will notice there is a 1 sec time 
    box on top of a steel crate. Note that there is a 3 sec time box up high in 
    this spot. This box is very easy to miss since you can't see it unless you do a 
    double jump. Double jump when bouncing from the 1 sec time box below to get 
    this up high 3 sec time box. Alternatively, if your invincibility has not 
    finished yet, just do a slide double jump to get the 3 sec time box and fall 
    down to the 1 sec time box below.
    
    Then move on, spin all the boxes ahead with one spin. Get all time boxes and 
    spin eels on your way. Then quickly get the three time boxes on top of a spring 
    crate to stop the time for the rest of the level. Avoid lasers and get few more 
    time boxes before running to the exit portal. DONE! Another Master Time has 
    been beaten! Congrats!

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    First of all, get yourself a golden Aku Aku mask. There is an Aku Aku box near 
    the start, so just start time trial then restart trial to get the two Aku Aku 
    masks.
    
    Shoot the clock with bazooka from just in front of the second trap that you can 
    fall down in. You may want to note or count how much time you have spent 
    waiting before shooting the clock. This way you can learn the movement of the 
    blocking hazards in this level, so they will not block your way again once you 
    know the specific timing. The timing is around 20 seconds from the time you 
    begin the level. You may need to adjust it a bit to match your speed in doing 
    this level. 
    
    Alternatively, you can shoot the clock from behind the second floor trap, so 
    you can see the movements of the three anchor obstacles and make them as your 
    time reference. The timing for this alternative method is when the third anchor 
    (the most-behind one) is doing its third or fourth drawing back, counted from 
    the fastest moment you can see these anchors. It will be more difficult to 
    shoot the clock using this alternative method. You may also want to try to 
    shoot the 2 sec time box on the left of the clock, right after you shoot the 
    clock. If done properly, this may save you up to half a second.
    
    Right before the clock was hit by your bazooka (whether you choose to take the 
    2 sec time box or not), quickly run and spin to get an Aku Aku, then double 
    jump and spin the 3 sec up high. By the time you spin the box up high, it 
    should have turned into time box. With your invincibility, blast through the 
    first part of the level. Do a double jump twice up the stairs and a small jump 
    over the pit after that. Get all time boxes. 
    
    The hammer should not block your way. The platform should come out, so you can 
    just do small jump twice and fall down to a platform below to get all the time 
    boxes there. Then quickly move up with the two iron spring crates and do a 
    double jump while bouncing from the last iron spring crate to get a time box up 
    high. The spiky walls should not block your way if you have done your timing 
    correctly.
    
    On the next part, don't touch any nitros here. The crusher should be going up 
    here. Get all time boxes. Spin the ones under the TNT and the TNT will blow up 
    the ones on top of it, while you run and spin a few time boxes inside the room. 
    Then double jump and spin the time box up high. Keep running and fall down to 
    the platform below (no need to jump). The time should still freeze at around 8 
    seconds here.
    
    Again, avoid all hazards, get all time boxes and don't jump. Just touch any 
    nitro to get all the time boxes on top of the nitro line. Then get an Aku Aku 
    with a double jump and a single spin on the right side of the box, then land on 
    the other side of the pit. Do double jump twice up the stairs.
    
    On the next part, ignore the 3 sec time box below; just quickly get a 1 sec 
    time box with a double jump and a spin. Land on top of the iron boxes and spin 
    the 2 sec time box. Alternatively, you can slide under the iron boxes to get 
    the 3 sec time box and quickly move back to get the 1 sec and 2 sec time boxes 
    on the top. The alternative method is arguably faster by a few milliseconds.
    
    From here, double jump to land on the higher platform. Then do a double jump 
    after bouncing from the TNT to get the two time boxes up high. Then do a small 
    jump pass the pit, spin the normal crate, do a normal jump pass another pit and 
    then spin the TNT stack near time boxes to destroy everything, but you will 
    loss your Aku Aku, which is not a problem.
    
    Then, do double jump twice up the stairs. If the spiky walls are blocking your 
    way, come out a bit to pass it from the front (see video on link #1 for visual 
    aid). Then do a double jump to get the time boxes on the flying platform and 
    hopefully the crusher is going up so you can pass and run to the exit portal.
    
    If the crusher is blocking your way, go and break the time boxes on the left 
    side of the spiky wall, so the time will stay frozen and when you get back to 
    the crusher, it will not block your way anymore.

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    First of all, get yourself a golden Aku Aku mask. There is one Aku Aku box 
    right at the beginning, so just start a time trial, spin it and restart trial. 
    Repeat and rinse.
    
    To start off, let the first wheelbarrow guy goes pass you first. Then just 
    touch the very side of the clock and kick the time boxes on the left. Ignore 
    the Aku Aku crate and kick the time box ahead. Time should be 1.10 - 1.20 here. 
    Alternatively, you can kick the Aku Aku crate first before getting the clock, 
    run back and take the clock. Kick the time boxes on the left and then just 
    blast through the next part with your invincibility. The alternative method is 
    faster by up to 8 milliseconds.
    
    Avoid a wheelbarrow guy and run just beside the fence. Invincibility should 
    finish now if you do the alternative method. Kick the next time box and the 
    enemy, then quickly jump to the spring crate, kick the time box up high (timing 
    is very important here), land on the next platform, avoid the enemy (need some 
    luck), get another time box up high, kick another enemy if necessary and do 
    small jumps over all the pits until you get to Coco's scooter. One thing to 
    note here, on the first small boat, there is a jumping lizard. You need to kick 
    this lizard on to the time box below the TNT stack at the back of the next 
    platform. This is pretty hard to do, so you may need some practice in order to 
    know what angle you need to take while jumping and kicking the lizard in order 
    to do this successfully.
    
    Now on the scooter. Cut corners, get all time boxes, avoid all wheelbarrow guys 
    and you should get to the end with no problem. If you get hit by a wheelbarrow 
    guy, don't worry, it doesn't really matter (as long as you have at least one 
    Aku Aku mask, which you should have). When you get down from the scooter,
    quickly kick the last time box here. Time should be 29.50 - 30.00 now. 
    
    Then, just run as straight as possible to the exit portal. Note that Coco would 
    occasionally (quite often) miss the exit portal if you run just a bit too up 
    or too down when entering the mist, so you may loss a second or more if this 
    happens to you. If everything is ok, then the Master Time should not be a 
    problem for you!

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    Before you start, wait until all except one of your opponents is at the first 
    two time boxes. Then start moving. This way you won't get stuck behind an 
    opponent when you try to take the first speed boost.
    
    Then just race! Few things to consider in order to get the best time:
    - You don't need to use any other button, other than the X button (jump 
      button). Always hold down the X button!
    - You have to finish first in the race to get your time count for time trial. 
      This means you can't wait for the enemies to clear first. They will not be in 
      your way anyway, so just start as prompted above.
    - Don't touch any of the opponents.
    - Get all the time boxes.
    - Get all the speed boosts, except the last one behind a ramp. Avoid that ramp 
      too. The third last speed boost (just before a 3 sec time box) is pretty hard 
      to get, because you need to use the bumps (the uneven road just at the edge
      of the pit) to jump to the speed boost. You also need some luck to get it.
    - You should press the turn button before the turn begins in order to cut 
      corners and save more time, i.e. you should begin to turn pretty early. You 
      should do this in almost all the turns in this level.
    
    Here are all the frozen times on a typical 41 seconds run. Allow some range 
    between 0.02 to 0.20 above or below each frozen time listed (except the first 
    one):
    
    2.06; 5.84; 7.44; 17.64; 23.46; 26.68; 27.00; 35.30; 40.94

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    Right after you enter into this level (or after you restart trial), you should 
    start moving as soon as you can. Move to the left and roll down the hill, take 
    the clock and jump over the pit COMPLETELY, so you should roll down across the 
    bridge with fast speed. You should have 0.30 - 0.80 when you get the first time 
    box on the other side of the bridge.
    
    Pass Tiny from above and avoid the spinning penguin. Quickly roll down the 
    hill, take all the time boxes while conserving your speed to go up the hill. On 
    top of the hill, use the fence (there is a 1 sec time box here) to go right 
    while conserving the speed and quickly roll and get all the time boxes on the 
    way. After getting the time box beside the small lake, your time should be 
    around 5 seconds. Roll over the penguin and pass the pit from the right side. 
    Get both 2 sec and 3 sec time boxes while going down the hill. Ignore the 1 sec 
    time box after this downhill. Instead roll directly to the 1 sec time box near 
    the first Dingodile. Using the bump on the ice, quickly go ahead while 
    conserving your speed. Alternatively, you may get the 1 sec time box after the 
    second downhill. If you roll as fast and as well as possible while conserving 
    your speed to the next 1 sec time box near the first Dingodile, you may save a 
    few milliseconds using this alternative method.
    
    Pass both spinning penguins from their left while getting all the time boxes. 
    On the next section, roll quickly to the path on the left. Be careful, you 
    may get hit by the second Dingodile's fire quite often here. If you survive, 
    just quickly roll on this next ice path. Don't get hung up by the bumps on your 
    left, but get the time box here by touching the side of the box. Roll over and 
    get all time boxes. On the part where there are two bumps leading to a 3 sec 
    time box, just roll into the bump quickly and you will get launch to the time 
    box without losing too much time and speed.
    
    If the timing is right, the first moving platform should lead you to the middle
    platform. The second moving platform should also be in line with the middle
    platform so just roll over all these platforms as fast as possible. If the 
    third moving platform is missing, i.e. is not in line with the other two, you 
    can still roll over to the other side if you roll very fast.
    
    On the next part, just quickly roll without falling down to the ice while 
    taking all the time boxes. First, take the right route, then avoid blue beam 
    shot by N. Tropy and take the left route. Get the last 2 sec time box by 
    rolling pass the pits without being slowed down. If you are lucky, you can roll 
    pass the last big pit without being slowed down. Then just aim for the mist in 
    that exit portal. Note that you would often miss this exit mist, ruining your 
    great run... But if you succeed in getting to the exit, you should be able to 
    beat the Master Time.

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    First of all, get yourself a golden Aku Aku mask. You can find one at the 
    running part just after the first enemy that shoots green things at you. There 
    is an Aku Aku box up high. You can get it by double jump after bouncing from 
    the spring crate below. Restart trial and do this again to get a golden Aku Aku 
    mask. Alternatively, you can get this from another level which is NOT 
    recommended.
    
    Once you have the golden Aku Aku, restart trial. Wait for a moment before you 
    start to get a correct timing for the later part of the level. Now, start time 
    trial by touching the very top side of the clock. Quickly spin all the time 
    boxes once without being stopped by them. Spin normal crate that is in your 
    way. Avoid the green lasers and spin the 2 sec time box after that. Then do a 
    tornado spin to destroy the many boxes including the time boxes there. Time 
    should be 1.10 - 1.70 here. Avoid green lasers and cut corners. Spin the 
    remaining time boxes. When you get the last time box on copter pak part, your 
    time should be 11.20 - 11.70.
    
    Now on to the running part. If the timing is right, the fire from the side 
    should just come out when you land on the platform, so when you get there, the 
    fire should just cease and so you can cut corner, saving almost half a second. 
    Pass through the enemy on the side where he is not shooting at. Don't lost your 
    Aku Aku here. Avoid all hazards. Spin the time box under the iron boxes, then
    quickly double jump to break the 2 sec time box from its bottom. Quickly small 
    jump to the conveyor belt and do another small jump as the belt is moving 
    against you. Spin the 1 sec time box, then quickly double jump to get the 3 sec 
    time box up high without being stuck behind a flying normal crate. Then run on 
    the left side, small jump the pit and spin the invincibility crate to pass 
    through all the green lasers. Do a normal jump to break the flying 3 sec time 
    box from its bottom. Avoid the enemy.
    
    Just before you enter into the tube, do a double jump and spin to get the 1 sec 
    time box up high. You should land on a spring crate and being bounced up again. 
    While bouncing up, move a bit to the front and so you can spin both Aku Aku 
    crate and 3 sec time box at the same time. With your invincibility, the spring 
    crate should get destroyed when you land on it.
    
    The crusher should not block your way if the timing is right. Quickly run 
    through the tube with your invincibility. Get the next time box, small jump 
    over the pits and the invincibility should end when you finish taking both time 
    boxes on the next side scrolling section. Run through the X-ray tube, getting 
    all time boxes and don't get hit by anything. The last crusher may block you 
    for a second so you can slow down a bit while jumping over all the nitros and 
    try not to get hit by the mad scientist.
    
    Then spin the Aku Aku box to get another invincibility. Crash through all the 
    boxes after the tube, small jump over the pit and small jump on the conveyor 
    belt as it moves against you. Your invincibility should last until after you 
    crash into the nitro and time box stack.
    
    In the next tube, get the invincibility crate and pass through all the green 
    lasers. Remember to do a small jump on the belt that moves against you. Then 
    quickly run and small jump over some more pits to finish the level. If you get 
    hit by something here, you may waste a few milliseconds, but it is going to be 
    alright and you would still have a chance to beat the Master Time if you don't 
    get hung up too long in the crushers.

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    First of all, get yourself a golden Aku Aku mask. There is an Aku Aku box 
    just before the ice part and another one right before the skiing part.
    
    Once you get the golden Aku Aku, restart trial and notice that there are 4 
    apples near the clock. You have to kick the fourth one and throw it into the 
    clock (see video on link #1 for visual aid). This is very hard to do, so if you 
    are getting frustrated that you can't get this done, then you may want to try 
    to kick the third apple instead. The third apple method is easier, but is a bit 
    slower.
    
    When you start, quickly jump to the spring crate to get the time box up high, 
    then kick while falling down to destroy all the boxes below including the time 
    box and spring crate. Then avoid the spinning penguins and ice skaters. Kick 
    the two time boxes, then jump on top of the TNT to crack the time box. 
    Alternatively, you can do a normal jump then just kick the time box on top of 
    the TNT. The alternative way is faster. 
    
    Normal jump to the second platform, then small jump to the ground on the other 
    side. Then do two small jumps to pass the next set of platforms. Kick the time 
    box and jump to the spring crate. Remember to press X (jump button) exactly at 
    the time you land on the spring crate so your jump will be higher. Move to the 
    front a bit while jumping to kick both Aku Aku box and the time box with one 
    kick. With your invincibility, you should not get bounce up again.
    
    Then quickly slide on the ice and just crash into any box in your way with your 
    invincibility. Jump twice to cut corners. Your invincibility should finish when 
    you have done sliding on ice. Pass the nitro from the left and ignore the Aku 
    Aku box on the other side. Then kick the last time box before you go skiing. 
    Time should be around 25.50 - 26.50 seconds now.
    
    Onto the skiing part. There is nothing much to say here. Just cut corners, 
    don't get stuck, get all the time boxes and don't get hit by nitros more than 
    once. There are two tricky bits. The first one is at the part where there are 
    two nitros and a time box after that. It's quite difficult to not get hit by 
    the nitros, but with some practice you should be able to do this. Getting hit 
    by nitros will only slow you down a few milliseconds so it should not be a 
    problem. The second tricky part is at the two 1 sec time boxes where there is 
    also a small hill. You may miss one or both time boxes if you don't know that 
    there is this small hill, so move accordingly as if there is a folding space 
    there. Again, with practice you should be able to do this easily.
    
    When you finish skiing, quickly run to the exit portal. I think running on the 
    left side of the nitro switch box is a bit faster than the way shown in the 
    video (link #1) but the chance of getting stuck is higher. Then once again, you 
    need some luck so you would get into the mist in the exit portal as soon as 
    possible, otherwise you may waste a lot of time and ruin your run - and this 
    happens quite often.
    
    Congrats on beating another Master Time!

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    First of all, get yourself an Aku Aku mask (NOT golden Aku Aku). If you haven't 
    got any, you can start the time trial, and get your Aku Aku on the first monkey 
    bar. Once you have an Aku Aku mask, restart trial.
    
    To start off, go stand behind the first few boxes you see in this level. From 
    there, use your bazooka to shoot the clock. It should be easy to do this. 
    Quickly spin the time box and normal jump to the next platform. Then spin 
    another time box and small jump to the next platform.
    
    Run pass the iron spring crate and do a small double jump instead. The purpose 
    of this is to get as far down the monkey bar as possible because you move VERY 
    SLOWLY while hanging. Quickly spin the 3 sec time box. Time should be 2.10 - 
    2.80 now.
    
    Move along the bar. Spin the time box AND Aku Aku box with one spin. Ignore the 
    two 2 sec time boxes on the left because taking them is actually slowing you 
    down! Time should be 9.10 - 9.80 now.
    
    Still hanging, move to the left way. Then, when the robot comes close to you, 
    quickly press X (jump button) to get off from the bar. You should touch the 
    robot while falling down, so you will lose an Aku Aku mask... BUT now you can 
    walk on the "invisible floor" below. Quickly double jump and spin the 2 sec 
    time box before your "invincible-after-taking-hit" wear off. Spin the next time 
    box and an Aku Aku box.
    
    Now, small jump to the bottom electric monkey bar (don't hang). Do a normal 
    jump and spin the two 1 sec time boxes with one spin. Then, touch the nitro to 
    get all the time boxes. Jump to get 1 sec time box soon after that. Note that 
    you don't really need to care about the electric in this part because you are 
    going to get hit once anyway. BUT, don't use all your Aku Aku. Use one only.
    
    Then, from the right of the last iron boxes on the bottom monkey bar, do a 
    small double jump to get to the next platform, preferably without touching the 
    top monkey bar. Get the time boxes. Then normal jump to the mech. Time should 
    be 22.00 - 22.90 now.
    
    Walk on the right side, getting a time box and avoid the mad scientist. Then 
    quickly shoot the nitro up high to make a way for you. Do a normal jump to pass 
    the iron boxes. Keep walking on the right side. Get all the time boxes here and 
    break Aku Aku box. Keep walking on the right side, ignoring the 1 sec time box 
    on the left. Then, get all time boxes and avoid all hazards.
    
    At the part where there are many nitros and scientists, just touch one of the 
    nitro and everything will be gone. Moving on quickly and don't get hit by 
    anything. On the last iron box stack, you don't have to shoot anything, just 
    jump from the right side and get the 2 sec time box behind.
    
    By the time you get the first time box in the box stack on the side scrolling 
    section, the time should be frozen until the end. Jump over all the pits and 
    get all time boxes. Just crash the nitro, losing your Aku Aku to move faster. 
    To get the 3 sec time box up high, you need to bounce from the enemy below. 
    Then move on, and don't forget there is a pit right before the exit portal. If 
    you are not careful, you may fall down.
    
    Alternatively, you can use your Aku Aku in the first iron box stack while on 
    the mech, but be very careful at the end, because if you don't time your jump 
    precisely, you may still get hit by the nitro in the side scrolling section 
    later on. This alternative method is a lot harder but is a bit faster.
    
    Congrats! You have just beaten Master Time in one of the most annoying level in 
    this game!

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    Before we start, just remember that there is a "black hole" bug in this level. 
    You can't see it, but once you get there, you will die with no apparent reason 
    even when you have 100% health. Its approximate location is shown below:
    
    ........3........
    .................
    ..........xxxx...
    .................
    ..............1..
    .2...............
    ........C........
    .................
    ...........S.....
    
    S = where you start
    C = clock to start time trial
    xxxx = the "black hole" bug
    Note: NOT TO SCALE
    
    So, basically we are forced to destroy the satellite in the order I have put 
    because you can't go from 1 to 3 (there is a "black hole").
    
    To get the best time, you need to destroy the red satellites from 1 to 2 to 3 
    while getting few time boxes on the way, then get all time boxes when you shoot 
    the blue satellite, also from 1 to 2 to 3. Be careful when you go back from 3 
    to 1 because you may get suck into the black hole if you didn't destroy the red 
    satellited on 3 fast enough.
    
    However, there is a VERY BIG glitch in this level, so you don't actually have 
    to do anything above.
    
    Basically you can destroy all the red satellites (all nine - three on each) 
    before shooting the clock to start the time trial, but you have to CRASH into 
    them (instead of shooting them). This will cost you 25% health for each red 
    satellite, so just get some health boxes in between. There are 4 health boxes, 
    so if you get 50% health from each (by shooting the box, not the balloon - see 
    next paragraph), you will have more than enough health to crash all nine! Just 
    be careful not to crash any meteor (cost you 30%) or any other enemies' planes 
    (cost you 25%).
    
    Here are some information about the health balloon:
    +50% health if you shoot the box from far away
    +25% health if you shoot the balloon
    +1 Life if you shoot the box when you are too close
    +1 Life if you crash into the box (without shooting)
    
    So, you will start the time trial with only 75% health if everything went 
    perfectly (after crashing to all nine, and getting 50% health from all health 
    boxes). Therefore, you can actually survive two suicide enemies and a few 
    bullets. Don't shoot other normal crates before the time trial start because 
    they will turn into time boxes! The enemies can be annoying but you must bear 
    with them, and also you still need to avoid that "black hole".
    
    Note that the clock will disappear if you shoot the red satellites, so you will 
    not be able to start time trial. That's why you should crash into them instead 
    of shooting them.
    
    BUT there is another BIG GLITCH. You can shoot and destroy the blue satellites 
    and the clock will still be there. This means, with full exploitation of this 
    glitch, when you start the time trial there will be only one almost-destroyed 
    blue satellite you need to shoot at!
    
    To get the best time, you should destroy all the blue satellites, except no 2. 
    Shoot 2 a few times until you feel that you almost destroy it. Then from there, 
    go in the direction of the clock, then from as far as possible, quickly shoot 
    the clock, turn around and shoot the closest time box (NOT the balloon) as soon 
    as possible. Then get few more time boxes before destroying the satellite, just 
    to make sure the time stays frozen.
    
    Alternatively, you can shoot at the blue balloonish thing (NOT the box) that is 
    closest to the clock just before you turn around and shoot the clock. The box 
    takes about 5 seconds to fall from the blue balloon and break at the bottom. 
    Shoot the clock RIGHT BEFORE the box breaks so you get the time freeze! If you 
    have done this properly (and are really lucky like Slazzy), the box will break 
    JUST when the clock was shot, giving you a frozen time of only about a few 
    milliseconds. You may even have a chance to get the LTP (2 milliseconds)! 
    Quickly shoot down all the nearest time boxes to keep the time freeze before 
    shooting down the last blue satellite to keep the record!
    
    Thanks to Slazzy for this insanely fast (but difficult!) alternative way.
    
    Note that you need 40 shots to destroy a blue satellite, so if you want just a 
    single shot to complete the level, you can just shot the last satellite 39 
    times by counting each shot or just look at your wumpa numbers (since you get 1 
    wumpa for each shot to the satellite).
    
    DONE! You should beat the Master Time quite easily with full exploitation of 
    this glitch!
    
    Just some information to those who don't like to glitch their way to get the 
    best time in this level: my best time without using any part of this glitch was 
    35.54 seconds.

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    First of all, get yourself a golden Aku Aku mask. It isn't necessary, but may 
    be helpful if you have one or two Aku Aku. You can get one Aku Aku just before 
    the second jellyfish line. Then restart trial and go there again to get the 
    second one.
    
    Before starting the time trial, go and destroy the two blue tentacles near the 
    clock. Then go to the hole where the first tentacle was, and from there shoot 
    the clock while moving to get the first few time boxes nearby (see video on 
    link #1 for visual aid). Get all time boxes and keep moving. On the next 
    tentacle, just drop a torpedo as soon as you pass on it so the tentacle will 
    not touch your machine and you can keep on moving. Avoid all dropping anchors 
    and get all time boxes. Time should stay frozen at 0.02 - 0.20.
    
    Next, shoot the swimmer and drop a torpedo into the iron box opening below to 
    destroy the nitro and so also destroy all the time boxes there. Shoot the fat 
    fish and get the time box. Don't get the Aku Aku because it wastes time.
    
    Moving on, avoid all hazards, shoot some fish, get all time boxes, drop torpedo 
    to time boxes below. Shoot the last few anchors and now you should get to the 
    swimming part of the level. Remember to keep pressing X (jump button) and 
    square (spinning button) continuously while swimming.
    
    Quickly spin the first time box you see. From here on, the time should be 
    frozen for the rest of the level. Get all time boxes and the two Aku Aku boxes. 
    You may get invincibility here, but it doesn't really make any differences 
    since the time would still freeze until the end anyway. That's why you don't 
    need to start the trial with a golden Aku Aku.
    
    Keep on swimming. Get ALL the time boxes. Don't forget the secret chamber to 
    the left just after the second drop down. There are 15 seconds worth of time 
    boxes there! You may lose your first Aku Aku on the iron boxes with two 1 sec 
    time boxes in between. Spin through and you will lose your Aku Aku or just spin 
    then quickly move back and go on top of the falling iron boxes. Only do the 
    second way if you don't have a Golden Aku Aku mask because the second way is 
    slower. However, if you haven't made too many mistakes, the time should still 
    freeze until the end. 
    
    On the next part, there are two time boxes you may not see; they are hidden 
    inside the tall green sea grass. Spin them both. Then, you may lose your second 
    Aku Aku on the last falling anchor. If you don't have an Aku Aku for whatever 
    reasons, you can wait for the anchor to fall first before moving down. If you 
    haven't made too many mistakes in the early part of the swimming section, the 
    time should still freeze until the end.
    
    Note that you can make a few mistakes (possibly around 3 to 5 seconds worth of 
    mistakes) in the swimming part as the time will still freeze until the end 
    anyway, e.g. the video (on link #1) has several mistakes, but the time still 
    freeze when he finished. But don't make too many mistakes! You should be able 
    to beat the Master Time in no time.

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    First of all, get yourself a golden Aku Aku mask. You may also want to get just 
    one Aku Aku mask. If you decided to get a golden Aku Aku mask, you MUST get hit 
    by something (most likely the spinning fan) before the first monkey bar. 
    Otherwise, you will get an invincibility and the "invisible floor" glitch will 
    not work.
    
    To get the two Aku Aku boxes, just start a time trial and there is one Aku Aku 
    box inside the 5 TNTs just before the first spinning fan, and another one is 
    located just before the first monkey bar.
    
    To start off time trial, stand beside the first box and shoot the clock from 
    there. Then quickly spin this box which has now turned into a time box. Then 
    get all the time boxes nearby. Do a small jump over the pit. Get all three time 
    boxes beside a TNT with one spin (plus the robot if it is in the way). Do 
    another small jump. Then do a normal jump to the time box, another normal jump 
    over the pit to the next time box and double jump to get the time box up high. 
    Run on the right side of the enemy and run towards the spinning fan, ignoring 
    the Aku Aku box and 5 TNTs on the left side. If the fan is spinning, slide on 
    its left or right side. You may lose an Aku Aku here which is to be expected. 
    If you don't lose an Aku Aku here (and you bring in a golden Aku Aku mask), you 
    need to crash into the next scientist so you won't get invincibility from the 
    next Aku Aku box.
    
    Spin all boxes on the enemy's left, then do a small jump while touching the 
    robot so you can walk on an "invisible floor". Then quickly jump to the second 
    iron boxes platform. From the end of the platform, do a small jump again while 
    touching the robot so you can walk on another "invisible floor"! 
    
    Quickly jump to the next platform and do a tornado spin to get all the time 
    boxes at the back and front. Small jump over the pit and small jump to the 
    spring crate to get the 3 sec time box up high. Normal jump to TNT which will 
    bounce you to the next platform. Do a double jump and quick tornado spin to get 
    all the flying time boxes. Then do a small double jump to pass the pit without 
    hanging onto the bar.
    
    On the next section, small jump over all the pits while getting all the time 
    boxes and avoid all hazards. The time should still freeze at 6.40 - 6.90 here.
    
    Then small jump on the first two green lasers, and slide under the third one. 
    Do normal jumps to pass the next two green lasers from the right side, followed 
    by a small jump over another laser and just slide under the next one. Get the 
    invincibility crate and just blast through all the lasers. You may want to spin 
    an Aku Aku box here, but it wastes almost half a second by taking it. Either 
    way, you need to pass some spinning fans after that. The frozen time you get 
    after breaking the first time box under the first spinning fan is the time you 
    should have at the end. If you didn't get the Aku Aku box previously, don't 
    touch any part of the fans even while they are not spinning, because then you 
    would die and need to restart trial! You need some luck so the fan does not 
    spin when you pass there (like in the video on link #1). If you choose to get 
    an Aku Aku, you can slide under the fan while it spins.
    
    On the last part where there are many nitros and one green laser, if you don't 
    have an Aku Aku, you may want to double jump just to make sure you don't touch 
    any. The time will still freeze if you have done everything correctly. If you 
    still have an Aku Aku (not getting hit by the fan), you can just normal jump 
    pass everything. Then double jump and spin the 3 sec time box up high. Quickly 
    run to the exit portal to save your record!

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    First of all, get yourself a golden Aku Aku mask. One Aku Aku mask is fine. 
    However, you must not get hit if you only have one Aku Aku mask (getting hit 
    will slow you down anyway, so one Aku Aku may be preferable by some).
    
    You need to shoot the clock with the bazooka from the box stack nearby. When 
    the time trial started, spin all the boxes with one spin and also do a double 
    jump to break the time box up high.
    
    Avoid all enemies (only spin if they are on your way - note that spinning 
    wastes a few milliseconds). Get all time boxes. Go pass the nitros from the 
    right side. Small jump to the first platform on the lava. Then do another small 
    jump, followed by a normal jump, and another small jump to the solid ground. 
    Keep moving, and do only small jump.
    
    Do a normal jump to pass the blue pipes. You can do small jump but the timing 
    is pretty hard to do. Ignore the Aku Aku box, but just double jump and spin the 
    time box up high. Next, do a small/normal double jump with or without a tornado 
    spin, depends on where the moving platform is. Avoid nitros and spin the time 
    box. The time should be 29.50 - 30.50 here.
    
    Keep on moving. Get the time box and Aku Aku box. You may go invincible here, 
    but it doesn't make any significant difference. Then, you must not get hit by 
    the falling ball. Spin the 1 sec time box, then immediately double jump to the 
    top platform. Do two double jumps up the stairs and a small jump at the end. 
    Then get invincibility here. Do small jumps over all the pits. Get the two time 
    boxes up high with one jump. Then do a couple of small jumps to the other side 
    of the lava flow. You can crash into the nitro or just run on its right side. 
    Get the remaining time boxes. And then, quickly run to the exit portal.
    
    With this strategy, you should be able to beat the Master Time!

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    First of all, get yourself a golden Aku Aku mask. There is one Aku Aku box up 
    high near the beginning. Restart trial to get two. Then restart trial again to 
    start a proper time trial run.
    
    Stand just beside the two stacked boxes near the start. From there, shoot the 
    clock with bazooka and quickly spin the boxes that have now turned into time 
    boxes. Then, avoid spiky balls and run on the right side to avoid the bird. 
    Slide into the two 1 sec time boxes to avoid getting blown up by the two TNTs. 
    Then do a double jump and spin both time box and Aku Aku box with one spin. 
    With invincibility, blast through all the enemies and time boxes, also small 
    jump over all the pits. Time should be 10.10 - 10.50 when your invincibility 
    runs out.
    
    On the side scrolling section, spin the time box, small jump over a TNT and 
    then spin a donkey on your way. Then do a normal jump to the time box and 
    bounce to the time box up high. Time should be around 13 seconds now. Get the 
    next two time boxes by using tornado spin, then quickly jump to the second 
    platform while still spinning (different from video on link #1). From there, do 
    a small double jump to the fourth platform and a small jump to the ground.
    
    Keep on running and normal jump pass the nitro line. Then do a double jump and 
    spin both time box and Aku Aku box up high. You should now have invincibility 
    again. Time should be around 18.70 - 19.10 seconds here. Small jump over the 
    pits and crash into time boxes with your invincibility.
    
    Now here is one of the trickiest parts in this level. Do a small double jump to 
    get as far as possible on the monkey bar. Your invincibility should crack the 2 
    sec time box on the monkey bar before it runs out (different from the video on 
    link #1). Then quickly drop down to the sand platform and do a small jump to 
    get the next 2 sec time box. Ignore the 1 sec time box. Instead, do a small 
    double jump again to get as far as possible on the next monkey bar (different 
    from video on link #1). Move towards the 2 time boxes at the front and spin 
    both boxes while dropping to the next sand platform. Do a small double jump 
    over the next pit and avoid touching the bar.
    
    Now jump to the push mine-cart and keep pressing X (jump button) to move the 
    cart faster. You should have around 34 to 35 seconds when you take the last 
    time box on the cart. After the cart, do a small double jump again to the bar. 
    Spin the normal crate, time box and the enemy once each. Drop down to the 
    platform below and do a small jump to get to the other side without touching 
    the next bar. Quickly spin the normal crate that is in your way before landing 
    and also the time box. Time should be around 39 to 41 seconds here.
    
    Keep on running. Don't lose your Aku Aku here. Slide under the TNT to get time 
    box and invincibility. Then keep running and do a double jump to get the 3 sec 
    time box up high. Alternatively, you can slide jump to break this time box from 
    its bottom but it is very easy to miss. Slide jump method is faster. Do another 
    double jump (or slide jump - this time slide jump should be easier and faster 
    too) to get invincibility (again). Get all the time boxes and keep running, 
    crashing everything with your invincibility.
    
    When you start going up the slope, do a double jump and get the two time boxes 
    up there. Then, double jump up the platform ignoring the iron spring crate and 
    just slide below the TNT to get the 1 sec time box. The time should be around 
    50 to 55 seconds here. Note that the time will only move around 1 to 3 seconds 
    more from here on. Now there are two methods to finish off the level. Choose 
    one.
    
    First method, you can do a small jump to the monkey bar and spin the enemy 
    while hanging on the bar. Spin the time boxes and small jump over a pit. Then 
    do a normal jump followed by a quick tornado spin to the platform on the right 
    side of the monkey bar where there are an Aku Aku box with a couple of time 
    boxes. This should give you invincibility. Do a double jump straight to the 3 
    sec time box ahead. And with the invincibility, crash all the nitros and TNTs 
    on your way. Get the 2 sec time box above the bouncy box and wait until the 
    invincibility finishes before you can continue.
    
    Second method, you can do a small double jump so you can get to this monkey bar 
    as far as possible. You would get hit by the crab, losing one Aku Aku mask. 
    Then spin the time boxes. Small jump over a pit. Then do a normal jump followed 
    by a quick tornado spin to the platform on the right side of the monkey bar 
    where there are an Aku Aku box with a couple of time boxes. From here, double 
    jump to a normal crate ahead, but bounce on it from its top and then move a bit 
    to the left-front before doing a quick tornado spin to break the 3 sec time box 
    and if you are lucky, you should land on the next platform. If you are not so 
    lucky, you may get hung up to the bar for a while. When you land on the 
    platform, just spin/crash into the nitros and TNTs, losing one Aku Aku mask. 
    Normal jump to break the 2 sec time box above bouncy box from its bottom. You 
    don't need to wait if you use this method. This method is a bit faster than the 
    first method but is harder to do it properly.
    
    Whichever way you chose, you should have at least one Aku Aku left at the point 
    just before the last monkey bar. Do a small jump, crash into the crab and then 
    fall down to the pit which has become your "invisible floor" while you are 
    flashing. Then, quickly do a normal jump to the next platform and spin any 
    nitro to destroy all the boxes there while you remain "invincible". From here 
    on, the time should be frozen until the end. Spin the time box. Keep on running 
    and double jump pass the TNT. Then quickly spin the last box stack so the time 
    will stay frozen. Then, just run and jump into the exit portal to finish off 
    this LONG level...

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    Welcome to the most annoying level in Crash: TWoC. If you decided to attempt to 
    beat the Master Time in this level, I tell you now that 18-19 runs out of 
    every 20 runs you make, you will need to restart trial at the middle of this 
    level because you WILL fail in the annoying part which I will explain soon. So, 
    don't get too frustrated if you haven't succeed in your 10th attempt. I have 
    warned you. And no, there is no known way to increase your chance of success, 
    so you just have to have some luck and live with it. So, with this in mind, 
    let's start the time trial. 
    
    Start immediately by rolling down the most-left wooden bridge. Get all the time 
    boxes in the way. Keep going as fast as you can and turn as well as you can in 
    the uphills. Avoid nitros and keep rolling until you get to the tubes part. Get 
    the two 3 sec time boxes here, but don't take the 1 sec time box just after the 
    tubes. Just roll out as fast as possible on the right side. Then, don't go to 
    the left path to take the three 1 sec time boxes in the circular path; just 
    roll as fast as possible on the right. However, if you are lucky enough, you 
    may break the first 1 sec time box there without losing speed. Take the right 
    path again on the next circular path. Keep rolling on the right side, passing 
    Tiny Tiger and get to the wooden bridge on the right (see video on link #1 for 
    visual aid).
    
    Get all time boxes here, and quickly roll up the hill to the part where there 
    are few red rubber pushers. Don't wait for the first one to go back when you 
    get there; just roll over it and the timing for the others should fall into 
    place nicely. Then, when you get near to the elevator platform, quickly take 
    the 1 sec time box on the left and roll to the elevator while it is going up. 
    If you are too slow in the early part of the level, you may not have time to 
    take the 1 sec time box. That's not a big problem as the BIG problem is on the 
    next section: the ANNOYING PART. The time now should be around 2 to 4 seconds.
    
    Remember what I said at the start of the strategy for this level? 18-19 runs 
    out of every 20 runs you make WILL fail, and so you will need to restart trial 
    a lot of time. Why? Because of this ANNOYING PART! Let's see... At this weird 
    cross-section, you need to be able to roll successfully on to the other side 
    using only two moving wooden platforms. You MUST NOT fall down. The platforms 
    move randomly and you will more often than not fail to make it, which means you 
    need to restart trial because failing to do this trick will cost you up to 30 
    seconds. In other words, if you don't reach the top part to get 12 sec worth of 
    time boxes, you will need to restart trial because you won't be able to beat 
    the Master Time.
    
    Well, if you fall down, you can wait for the next up and down platform to take 
    you up there, but you have already wasted up to 30 seconds! You can do this if 
    you just want to practice for the rest of the level which is recommended so you 
    won't get really mad for failing AFTER you passed this annoying part.
    
    So, you successfully roll to the other side. If you are really REALLY lucky, 
    you should retain your full speed at this moment, but chances are you will 
    either fall down and fail or get slow down a lot. Slow down a lot but success 
    is of course better than falling down. You should have around 5 to 12 seconds 
    when you get the four 3 sec time boxes up there. And guess what, the time 
    should stay frozen until the end of the level! Well, that if you continue to 
    roll as fast as possible, getting all time boxes and take the shortest route 
    available.
    
    Roll as fast as possible and pass all hazards. Get all the time boxes in a room 
    next to the N. Tropy's room and then quickly roll into the maze. Take the two 
    shortcuts as shown in the video (link #1). Note that you must roll pretty fast 
    in order to successfully take these shortcuts. Quickly roll to the spiral and 
    still roll as fast as you can without touching the edge too much and roll to 
    the exit portal with the time still frozen. Be careful NOT to miss the mist in 
    the exit portal, especially if you have done a great run!
    
    With this strategy, including passing the annoying part and take the two 
    shortcuts in the maze, you should be able to beat the Master Time quite easily! 
    Congrats on finishing this annoying level!

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    First of all, get yourself a golden Aku Aku mask. Actually, you don't even need 
    an Aku Aku mask to start the time trial in this level. That's because most of 
    the times you would die in the early part of the level before you can even 
    reach the first Aku Aku box! The later part of the level is surprisingly easy 
    and so you don't really need invincibility. But for the best time, golden Aku 
    Aku is recommended. The two Aku Aku boxes required can be found on the first 
    side scrolling section in this level. One on the moving platforms and the other 
    one is right before you got chased by the fire.
    
    When you are ready, restart trial, then quickly run and do a small double jump 
    to the first monkey bar. Don't take the clock yet and don't spin any boxes 
    here. Go to the other side of the monkey bar and avoid the robot. Don't spin 
    the robot too as we need it as a time reference. When you get to the other 
    side of the bar, aim your bazooka to the clock, and when the robot is on the 
    left side for the first time after you land on the other side, shoot the clock. 
    Then quickly aim and shoot the two 3 sec time boxes on its left and also the 
    two 2 sec time boxes on the bar. You need to shoot each time box separately, so 
    you need to shoot 5 times including the clock. Then, quickly do a small jump. 
    Run and spin the 2 sec time box and do a small double jump to get as far as 
    possible on the next monkey bar.
    
    The timing here should be correct if you follow the strategy above. The first 
    platform should be in a vertical position, so carefully jump to its side, and 
    quickly do a double jump and spin the 2 sec time box. Don't get hung up in any 
    of the monkey bars. The platform now should be in a horizontal position for you 
    to breeze through with small jumps. Get the Aku Aku for invincibility. Crash 
    into the 1 sec time box and quickly do small jumps again passing through 3 
    moving platforms. The platforms should still be in their horizontal position if 
    the timing is right.
    
    With your invincibility, blast through all normal crates that are on your way, 
    crash into all time boxes and get to the annoying machine! Small jump over the 
    pit as your invincibility will kill off the robot. Get all time boxes and 
    normal jump over the next pit and get invincibility again.
    
    On the next section, there is nothing much to say, really. Just walk as 
    straight as possible and cut corners while getting all the time boxes and 
    avoiding all hazards. You may want to ignore the Aku Aku box in this part since 
    if you take it, you waste a few milliseconds and the invincibility doesn't 
    worth it. You can choose to waste one Aku Aku after the second rest place by 
    crashing into nitros. That may save you up to 30 milliseconds.
    
    When the fire stop chasing you, just quickly do a normal jump over the first 
    pit and land on top of the robot. Then small jump over all the pits. All moving 
    platforms should be in your favour. Avoid the green little robots and you 
    should be fine. Note that you may not want to use your extra Aku Aku since 
    crashing into enemies will waste quite a lot of time. Just jump and cut few 
    more corners and you should get to the exit portal safely and beating the 
    Master Time too! Congrats!

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    First of all, get yourself a golden Aku Aku mask. You can find an Aku Aku box 
    right before the first side scrolling section. Just restart trial and get two.
    
    With a golden Aku Aku, restart trial and then quickly run under the first 
    laser. Don't take the clock yet. Normal jump to the next platform and do NOT 
    break the box. Double jump pass the next laser and position yourself just in 
    front of the second electric bar. When the second laser is halfway down (NOT 
    up), quickly shoot the clock and the 2 sec time box nearby. Then quickly 
    run and spin the 1 sec time box on the right of the second electric bar, then 
    small jump and spin the normal crate that is on your way. See the video (link  
    #1) for visual aid. Time should be 0.30 - 0.80 now.
    
    Normal jump and spin the time box on top of the nitro (don't jump on top of it 
    like shown in the video (link #1) as it is slower). Then small jump over all 
    the pits. Do a normal jump pass the laser on to the next platform. Then 
    quickly spin the Aku Aku box and get an invincibility. Do a normal jump to take 
    the flying 3 sec time box. Then quickly small jump over all the pits in this 
    side scrolling section. Your invincibility should end right after you crash 
    into the second knight shield. Do a few more small jumps and now you are on the 
    next part.
    
    Spin the 3 sec time box, then small jump over the laser and all the pits, 
    except do a small double jump from the second last platform to the next 
    platform with laser. Spin the 1 sec time box then quickly double jump and do a 
    quick tornado spin to get the flying time box. Small jump over all the pits. 
    Normal jump over electric floor. Then if the timing is right, you should be 
    able to run pass the laser without losing an Aku Aku. Do a small jump, then a 
    double jump followed by a spin to get the flying time box. Normal jump the 
    laser, and also the electric floor.
    
    There are two ways to go through the next part. Just run through as shown on 
    video (link #1). Or you can double jump from the right side (just before the 
    last electric bar) to the side scrolling platform (as shown in the video on 
    link #2 but no need to tornado spin - Note that I don't know what version 
    Stelzig's game is but in most versions, you don't need to spin any switch box 
    to make those outline boxes breakable (there are a few time boxes there!) - 
    look at video #1 where Fethy did not spin anything behind the electric bar. 
    This means there is no switch box there. If you are playing the version that is 
    similar to Stelzig's, then you have to take the first way, i.e. just run 
    through the back of the electric bar and then spin the switch box).
    
    Either way, there should be 4 time boxes with a bunch of TNTs here. Just spin 
    the first time box. Then quickly do a normal jump to break the flying time box 
    from its bottom and trigger one of the TNTs. Just keep running as the TNTs will 
    break the remaining time boxes for you. Spin the next time box. Time should be 
    around 26 seconds now.
    
    Quickly small jump over all the pits and do a double jump pass the laser. Spin 
    the Aku Aku box as soon as possible to get invincibility. Take the time box and 
    small jump over the pit. Just run through the electric floor with your 
    invincibility. Then touch the side of the most outward TNTs to break everything 
    in that corner. Blast through all the nitros and your invincibility should be 
    extended by crashing into one of the 3 Aku Aku crates on stack.
    
    Small jump and again, blast through all the nitros. Then, small jump over the 
    next two pits. Your invincibility should finish here. Just do normal jumps to 
    pass the next two pits with laser near them. You may lose one Aku Aku mask but 
    it's not really matter. Just keep running to the exit portal right ahead. And 
    voila! You beat another Master Time! Congrats!

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    First of all, get yourself a golden Aku Aku mask. You can find one near the 
    beginning so you should get a golden Aku Aku fairly quick. Then, just restart 
    trial.
    
    Wait a few moments before you start. You may wait 0 to 3 seconds depend on your 
    speed in completing the first quarter of the level. This is done so the spiky 
    walls will not block your way later. When you have waited enough, quickly run 
    from just to the right side of the clock. Alternatively, you can kick one of 
    the many apples beside the clock and if you are lucky you may save up to 16 
    milliseconds, but if you are not so lucky, kicking the apple may waste you 10 
    milliseconds. So, best bet is, just run to the clock from its right. When 
    kicking the first time box, your time should be 1.50 - 1.80. You can't get 
    below 1.64 if you choose the first method but you should get 1.6x to lower 1.7x 
    more often if you just run to the clock rather than using the apples. If you 
    kick the apples, you would get 1.7x more often, but if you are very lucky, you 
    may get 1.5x.
    
    Small jump over the next two pits. Then kick the Aku Aku box to initiate 
    invincibility. Do a small jump to the iron spring crate to get the time box up 
    high. Keep on running with your invincibility, passing the shield knight and 
    the wizard. Quickly do 3 normal jumps up the stairs and another small jump 
    while kicking the first time box in the side scrolling section. Kick the next 
    two time boxes. Then jump to the 3 sec time box on the floor to bounce up and 
    break a flying 3 sec time box from its bottom. Then small jump to the next 
    platform.
    
    Do two small jumps on the first two platforms, then normal jump to the third, 
    and normal jump while kicking two flying time boxes. Then jump under the next 
    time box to break it from its bottom. The first two spiky walls should be just 
    going to the front to block you when you run through the first spiky wall, so 
    just quickly normal jump a bit to the front to avoid getting hit. Jump to the 
    iron spring crate and normal jump while kicking the next 4 time boxes. Don't 
    get hit by the nitros. The spiky wall should just move back.
    
    Note that if you are lucky and get the correct timing, all the spiky walls 
    should be at the back and not blocking your way, like on Slazzy's run (video on 
    link #1). However, it rarely happens.
    
    Run a bit to the front to avoid getting stuck. Kick the bouncy box and just 
    fall down to the platform below. Note that you must go a little bit inside to 
    fall down to the platform successfully, otherwise you will fall to the pit.
    
    Quickly kick the 3 sec time box and do a normal jump to the bouncy box. Press X 
    button (jump button) exactly at the time you land on the bouncy box so your 
    jump should go higher and you can break the 2 sec time box up high from its 
    bottom. Then avoid all hazards while keep on running. Small jump to the TNTs in 
    the middle then small jump pass all the pits. Be careful not to get hit by the 
    spinning blade. If you do get hit, you can just blast through the nitros and 
    kick the 3 sec time box behind them. If you don't get hit, kick the time box 
    just after you pass the last nitro. You may get invincibility here, but it 
    doesn't make any significant difference. If you don't get invincibility, just 
    avoid the nitros.
    
    Do 3 normal jumps up the stair and another small jump to the next platform. You 
    can choose to just run into the nitros losing your Aku Aku or just do two small 
    jumps to pass them. If you have invincibility, you can just blast through them. 
    Then, normal jump to the TNTs or the time box and land on the next platform. 
    Small jump to the spring crate to break the time box above and you can choose 
    to ignore the Aku Aku box or just break it. Only take the Aku Aku if you will 
    get invincibility from it. Otherwise, just move forward. Avoid the wizard or 
    just run through the wizard if you have invincibility. Normal jump to the 
    higher platform. Here you can choose to kick the TNTs losing your Aku Aku or 
    just jump onto the top of the 2 TNTs stack to blow everything up. If you have 
    invincibility, you can just blast through everything again.
    
    Whichever way you choose (not quite sure which way is faster, so you can choose 
    either one. You would still beat the Master Time!), now you should go up the 4 
    stairs smoothly in order to beat the Master Time. You can do normal jumps or 
    precise small jumps to get up there while still holding R2 to run. This needs 
    some practice to do it properly. When you get to the top, just keep on running 
    and fall to the next platform below, and immediately kick the first time box on 
    the ground. Then do two small jumps to break the next two time boxes from their 
    bottom. Kick the last time box while you run to the exit portal. Alternatively, 
    you can kick the first two time boxes (as shown in the video on link #1), break 
    the third one from its bottom and kick the last time box but the first method 
    may be a few milliseconds faster if you do it properly.
    
    Congrats on beating yet another Master Time!

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    To get the best time in this level, you need some luck. Here is the strategy to 
    beat the Master Time.
    
    Remember to always hold the Up button down from the beginning to the end. There 
    is no need to slow down even when you are pressing left or right to get time 
    boxes or avoid nitros on the side. You must break all the time boxes. And once 
    again ALWAYS press the Up button no matter what happen.
    
    First Lap :
    On the first crossing, take the left route to get to the clock. Touch the clock 
    at the last possible moment, so you can save up to 10 milliseconds. Get the two 
    time boxes on this route. Time should be 0.66 - 0.74. On the second crossing, 
    at the exit of the tunnel, choose the left route. Get all the time boxes. Then 
    on to the third crossing just after the switch box, choose the straight (i.e. 
    left) route. Then choose the right route on the last crossing.
    
    First Lap should finish with a time of 1.60 - 1.70.
    
    Second Lap :
    On the first crossing, go straight, then enter the tunnel on the right. Get all 
    the time boxes here without slowing down. Right after the tunnel, go right. At 
    the third crossing just after the switch box, go to right and then choose left 
    for the last crossing.
    
    Second lap should finish with a time of 4.86 - 4.96.
    
    Final Lap :
    On the first crossing, go straight, but do NOT enter the tunnel. Get the only 
    time box you haven't got here. On the second crossing, at the exit of the 
    tunnel, go straight. At the third crossing just after the switch box, go to 
    right and then choose left for the last crossing.
    
    Final time may vary from 13.56 - 13.72. You need a lot of luck to get lower 
    than 13.60.

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    The strategy here is to take the shortest possible route while still breaking 
    all the time boxes (which are all the boxes), getting inside all of the rings 
    and hold X (accelerate button) always. You must never touch any ring, any box 
    or your competitor because that will slow you down. By doing these, you should 
    be able to beat the Master Time quite easily.
    
    Few tricks you can do in this level:
    Spin the clock, so if you are lucky, the time trial will start a bit later - 
    may save you up to 10 milliseconds. You will then pass your competitor and will 
    never see him again. Now spin the time boxes. Note that you can use tornado 
    spin (and of course quick tornado spin) to help you break boxes if you are not 
    sure whether your single spin would break the time box or not. Tornado spin 
    will NOT slow you down but may take you out of the shortest route possible as 
    the copter pak becomes more difficult to control while spinning. You can also 
    touch the balloon or the rope to get the time box.
    
    At the part where you have to go very low, you can keep on pressing X without 
    stopping if you start going down right after you spin the 1 sec time box.
    
    At the end, stick to the left and you must spin the boxes of the last two time 
    boxes (not the rope nor the balloon) in order for them to count. You should get 
    suck to the exit portal earlier if you are on the left, but don't touch the 
    winning ring. With this strategy, you should beat the Master time easily.

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    To beat the Master Time, you need to use the joy stick very very well. Before 
    you start, move to the back of the platform you start on. At the very end of 
    this platform, quickly turn around and start building speed. With accelerating 
    speed, crash into the clock from its right side and keep rolling down with your 
    high speed. Pass N. tropy's blue beam (it rarely hits you anyway) and get the 
    first two time boxes. Quickly turn right and then drop down to the downhill. 
    Move to the dead-end on the right side to get the two 3 sec time boxes. While 
    taking the boxes, quickly turn your joystick to the left and start moving away 
    from the dead end, so you won't lose too much speed and time while changing 
    direction.
    
    Cut corner, then drop down to the left way on the next downhill. If you are 
    lucky, you can get the two 1 sec time boxes without being slowed down while 
    still cutting all the corners! Otherwise, you may need to slow down a bit in 
    order to take the two time boxes and cut corners properly. Quickly roll down 
    and get the next two time boxes. Then roll forward as fast as possible in the 
    moving platforms.
    
    You need to do some practice runs so you know how long the moving platforms are 
    and so you don't need to slow down at the end. When you feel that you almost 
    reach the end of these moving platforms, quickly turn left a bit so you can 
    take the two time boxes. From here, just roll straight as fast as you can. When 
    you finally reach the lowest platforms, slow down a little bit so you can take 
    the 2 sec time box. Then quickly build your speed up again to take the next 
    time box while cutting all the corners.
    
    On the next part, take the left way first and quickly break the 3 sec time box, 
    while moving on to the right to take another 3 sec time box. Note that Fethy 
    did not do this in his video, which means that he could have saved up to 
    another second. 
    
    Now quickly roll to the right, passing the moving platforms. Then cut a few
    corners, change direction without losing too much speed and get all the time 
    boxes. If you are quite lucky and know how long the platform is, you can cut 
    the very last corner and roll straight to the exit portal. Surprisingly, you 
    would RARELY miss the exit portal in this level, which is good!
    
    If you don't lose too much speed, the Master Time for this level should not be 
    a problem for you.

    |  STRATEGY  |
    o------------o
    There is nothing much to say about this level as you use a ski that has a fixed 
    speed for the whole level. However, there are a few tricks here and there that 
    may save you around 10 to 20 milliseconds for each trick. Here they are:
    - While on the ski, ALWAYS hold the O button (slide button) down so the ski 
      will move faster.
    - Take the straightest route possible and avoid going up and down a lot.
    - Just do small jumps to get the flying time boxes. DO NOT JUMP FOR ANY OTHER 
      REASONS, like for going up or down. Do normal jumps only if necessary.
    - Avoid going up and down the hill whenever possible.
    - Get all the time boxes.
    - Invincibility isn't necessary but may save a few milliseconds.
    - When jumping to get the flying time box, always land on the platform with 
      the same height.
    - Just get hit by the last nitro to take the time box on top of it.
    - Move a bit to the right at the end so you will get thrown out of the ski 
      sooner.
    - At the end, don't forget to press R2 so Coco will run to the exit portal. 
      Again, similar to a few levels previously, you may miss the mist in the exit 
      portal quite often here. Just make sure you know which pixel to step into so 
      you can get suck into the exit portal faster.
    
    You should have 2.90 - 3.10 when taking the second time box (the one up high) 
    and you should have around 32.70 - 33.30 when taking the last time box.

    Just a total time for all 30 levels.
    
    - On My Time, the first bracket is the difference between Platinum and My Time. 
      The second bracket is the difference between Master Time and My Time.
    
    - On Best Time, the first bracket is the difference between Platinum and Best 
      Time. The second bracket is the difference between Master Time and Best Time. 
      The third bracket is the difference between My Time and Best Time. Note that 
      Best Time excludes all my time.
    
    - BTE is Best Time Ever. This is the current total time of (unofficial) World 
      Record. This total is for the best of the best: Best Time plus My Time if I 
      have better time than the Best Time. BTE total time is the time currently in 
      number 1 spot in Section VI of this guide. On BTE, the first bracket is the 
      difference between Platinum and BTE. The second bracket is the difference 
      between Master Time and BTE. The third bracket is the difference between My 
      Time and BTE. The fourth bracket is the difference between Best Time and BTE.

    |                | bounce on it when not doing time trial. Will break after   |
    |                | 5 jumps or if you jump on it when you leave it for quite   |
    |                | some time after you have jumped on it at least once. You   |
    |                | can also break it by spinning it, like normal crate.       |

    |----------------+------------------------------------------------------------|
    | Outline box    | White outlined box. Need to spin a switch box to make it   |
    |                | appear. Usually they will not become time boxes (exception |
    |                | is in Cortex Vortex (25) for some versions), so ignore     |
    |                | them. You can just run through pass outline box.           |
    |----------------+------------------------------------------------------------|

    |----------------+------------------------------------------------------------|
    | Time box       | The yellow box that appears when you start time trial.     |
    |                | These boxes will freeze the timer for the number of seconds|

    |----------------+------------------------------------------------------------|
    | Iron box       | The grey box with nothing on it. Can't be destroyed.       |
    o----------------o------------------------------------------------------------o
    
    ** Note that there should be no Checkpoint crate, Crash/Coco crate (1-up) and 
    Slot box in time trial mode. (Exception: there are a few Crash crates in Smokey

    Q1. What is Master Time? All Master Time sounds so impossible! Are they even on 
        the game?
    A1. The Master Time is an unofficial benchmarks set by me, similar to the 
        "Developer Time" of Crash Bandicoot 3 Warped. THE TIME IS NOT SHOWN IN THE 
        GAME. This is the time that you should achieve if you understand the 
        strategies outlined in this guide and practice them with dedication. 
        Therefore, all Master Times is supposed to be beatable. Beating Master time 
        will give you a huge sense of accomplishment (just like beating the 
        "Developer Time" in Crash Bandicoot 3 Warped) and show people that you have 
        mastered that level in time trial.
    
        This can be found at the start of Section III. Next time, please read the 
        guide first before asking questions that have been answered here.
    
    
    Q2. How can I get such good times?
    A2. Practice is the key. Just keep doing the level. Learn the level very VERY 
        well. This guide and the videos should help you to do this faster. You will 
        be surprised by how much you can go faster. If it gets too frustrating for 
        you, stop playing it for a moment (a day, or even a year!), then come back 
        to it later with a fresh mind. Then, you will realise what you thought was 
        hard and impossible is actually within your ability to achieve it! 
    
        Keep practicing to hone your skills and I am sure you can get many good 
        times. Note that beating any Master Time is considered very good already, 
        so you should be proud with that achievement!! Pat yourself on the back 
        when you beat another Master Time! And smile. Email me and tell the world 
        about your great accomplishment! Seriously, you should do this in order to 
        keep you going on your quest to beat all the Master Time and then aim for
        the Best Time.
    
    
    Q3. My Crash runs slower! My plane moves slower! My atlasphere always rolls out 
        of control! Those videos are undoable in my version! These Master Times 
        must be only possible in some version of the game! That's not fair!
    A3. No, I don't think so. All your complaints have not been proven under fair
        controlled testing. This means at the moment, I see these as excuses. Prove 
        me wrong if you really think this is true. Note that youtube has been known 
        to stuff up the frame rate of uploaded videos, therefore any prove from 
        youtube or any video sharing/streaming site for that matter is not 
        sufficient.
    
        On the other hand, some people may be just jealous that they can't get low 
        times and so they try to find a way to accuse people with low times of 
        using cheats or faster version etc. They have no evidence and so their 
        accusation has no base and therefore invalid.
    
    
    Q4. I have some good times. How can I tell you so you would believe me?
    A4. Just send me an email or post it in the forums that I go to (see Section X
        for details). If it is pretty good, then you may need to provide a proof,
        such as a screenshot or a full run video.
    
    
    Q5. I have beaten the Best Time. Now what should I do?
    A5. Same as Question 5. Just send me an email or post it in the forums that I 
        go to. You will then need to provide us with a screenshot. If you can't 
        take pictures for reasonable reasons, then just convince us that you really 
        got that time somehow. You will know how to convince us if you are honest.
        Your time will be included in the record table on Section VI once we know 
        you are honest.
    
    
    Q6. What is LTP again?
    A6. Straight copy from Section III:
        LTP is a theoretical lowest time possible using strategies outlined in this 
        guide. All LTP is supposed to be impossible to beat as you are expected to 
        NEVER get any lower than the time specified here. LTP is calculated using a 
        theoretical perfect run if you followed everything in this guide, minus few 
        milliseconds. However, as new strategies surfaced, some LTP may be broken 
        and need to be revised.
    
        In other words, LTP is the maximum time anyone will ever get using the 
        strategies I have explained in this guide.
    
    
    Q7. I get a lower time than your LTP. YOU ARE WRONG! AND I AM JUST TOO GOOD!
    A7. If you really beat the LTP, then you must be using some other strategies 
        not mentioned in this guide. If it is possible, please provide us with a 
        video run-through on how to do this. Otherwise, just tell us in details 
        what strategy you used to get such a low time. If you want to keep your 
        strategy private (why would you do that?), you must somehow convince me and 
        people in the forums that you are NOT cheating in any way including NOT 
        using any internal or external cheating devices and NOT using any illegal 
        code or glitch exploitations. You will know how to convince us if you are 
        genuine.
    
        Note that Wizards and Lizards select glitch is not acceptable, so don't 
        bother submitting time achieved using that glitch.
    
    
    Q8. Some of the records on Section VI are impossible. How can I know that they
        are true and not just some fake numbers?
    A8. You can go to the forums on the sites specified in "Players Details" part 
        at the end of Section VI. Then, post there, kindly ask for proof. You can 
        also email me about your concern and I will try to make a contact with the 
        person in question if necessary. So, yeah, the best way is to post your 
        concern on the forums, especially the 4 forums I have listed in Section X.
    
    
    Q9. What is small jump, quick tornado spin, small double jump, slide double 
        jump, etc?
    A9. Please check Section IV. Thanks.
    
    
    Q10. How about spring crate, bouncy box, steel crate, iron box, outline box, 
         switch box, etc? And also what is this square button? There isn't any 
         square button on my controller???
    A10. PLEASE CHECK SECTION IV.
    
    
    Q11. I am so proud with my records. Where can I go to show my awesomeness to 
         more people?
    A11. Post it in the forums. You can find which forums where people care about 
         your awesomeness in this game in Section X of this guide.
    
    
    Q12. One of the links you listed is down! What to do... what to do...?
    A12. Please contact me, and I will try to ask the person to upload it again. 
         Some people may also have the back-up in their hard drive, in case the 
         uploader cannot be contacted.
    
    
    Q13. Who is this Fethy and Slazzy guy? I keep seeing their names everywhere in 
         this guide.
    A13. Fethy is a French guy who has a lot of awesome record in time trial for 
         this game. He used to beat every single established World Record at the 
         start of 2007 within two weeks. He is the first one as far as I know to 
         have a sub 16 minutes total time of time trial in all 30 levels. He is a 
         dedicated and honest video game player. He is one of my competitors who 
         wants to get the lowest time for this game in cyberscore.net. He has 
         shared with me a lot of great videos of his run through and also revised
         some of my old strategies.
    
         Slazzy is a Denmark guy who also has a lot of great times in time trial 
         for this game. He played this game competitively a few weeks after Fethy 
         has beaten all the World Records. He started small by beating one Fethy's 
         record (in Compactor Reactor). However, with his unique but difficult 
         strategies, he managed to beat a few more of Fethy's World Record. Seeing 
         this happened, really makes me want to play this game again and trying to 
         improve my old strategies. He has also shared with me a lot of great
         strategies.
    
         Both of these guys have helped me a lot in getting many low times that I 
         could not even imagine of getting close to a month before I started 
         playing competitively with these two guys. That's why you see a lot of 
         their names in this guide because their strategies are just too good to 
         ignore. Thanks, Fethy and Slazzy!
    
    
    Q14. There are too many WALL OF TEXT here. I can't stand reading all these!
    A14. Well, if you know how to organise my WALL OF TEXT better, then please 
         contact me so I can improve it.
    
    
    Q15. I have seen a better proven record than the current Best Time. Or I have 
         sent you some of my awesome times that should get me into top 3 in your 
         World Record Table. Why haven't I seen that updated to this guide?
    A15. Note that right after the section title in Section VI, there is this note:
         AS OF -- 24 March 2008
    
    This is the last date in which the Table in this guide was updated. For the 
    most current (unofficial) World Record table, you can always find it here:
    http://www.cyberscoreforums.com/index.php/topic,5644.msg85515.html#msg85515
    
    
    Q16. There are MANY MISTAKES! Some of your references are wrong, the time 
         differences are incorrect, there are some grammar contradiction, typo, etc 
         etc etc etc...
    A16. Please please email me where these mistakes are. I am going to fix them to 
         make you happy and give you a proper credit for it. Thanks in advanced!
    
    
    Q17. I have great news about the new Crash Bandicoot game. Do you want to hear 
         about it?
    A17. Well, thank you for offering to share it with me. But, seriously I can get 
         my news and info from more reliable sources. And if you still want to show 
         other people your "great news", then you can post it in one of the forums 
         I have put in Section X of this guide. There will be more people who can 
         read your great news and respond to it, so DON'T email me your great news. 
         Just post it in a forum/board.
    
    
    Q18. Why don't you allow Wizards and Lizards glitch for the Best Time, but you 
         allow Crashteroids glitch and "invinsible floor" glitch for the Best Time? 
         It's a DISCRIMINATION!!!
    A18. The select glitch in Wizards and Lizards shouldn't be allowed because it 
         can be done only on specific version of the game, i.e. only on the 
         original version of NTSC PS2. The glitch doesn't work on Greatest Hit 
         version, PAL version, NGC and X-Box versions. So this gives an unfair 
         advantage for people who have the original version of NTSC PS2. Moreover, 
         the glitch makes you finish the level in under one second with NO SKILL 
         WHATSOEVER REQUIRED which defeat the purpose of time trial.
    
         On the other hand, Crashteroids glitch and "invisible floor" glitch are 
         allowed because you STILL HAVE TO DO THE LEVEL from start to finish which 
         requires a lot of skills if you want this glitch to work for you instead 
         of against you. That's in line with the spirit of time trial, and thus 
         these two glitches are allowed for the Best Time.
    
         And NO, IT AIN'T A DISCRIMINATION!!!
    
    
    Q19. You said at the top that we can get 110% in TWoC. So how do you get 110%?
    A19. First, get all 25 crystals, 46 gems, 30 relics and all Crash Power so you 
         should have 106%.
         - Get all the Platinum relics on Time Trial and go to Coco Bandicoot in 
           the Warp Room.
         - Then go to the third boss area (Crashes to Ashes) and successfully 
           defeat him without dying, giving you another super tornado spin power 
           which means you can now walk while spinning continuously. You should
           now have 107%. 
         - Crunch will then tell Crash that he wants to help him on any running 
           level and Crash agrees. Go into any running level.
         - Crunch will take you to a special area at the end of the level you 
           chose, but Crunch will only appear if you don't die in the level.
         - Take the platform to a special area. Make sure you have 99 lives here 
           because this area is VERY difficult. Finish this area to receive the 
           Golden Crystal. You should now have 108%.
         - Go to the fifth boss area (Crunch Time) to fight with... who? Crunch is 
           your friend now. So who do we fight? Well, see for yourself! This is a 
           quite big spoiler. Anyway, you must beat this boss to get the Olympic 
           Dash (to make Crash runs even faster) and also to unlock Developers' 
           Time you can try to beat in all 30 levels. You should now have 109%.
         - The developer time is really hard to beat even with the Olympic Dash. 
           However, if you managed to beat all of the Developers' Time, then you 
           should have 110% completion - a very great and satisfying achievement 
           and accomplishment! 
    
         That's it. That's all you have to do to get 110%... or is it?
    
           ...
           L..
           O..
           A..
           D..
           I..
           N..
           G..
           ...
    
         LULZ!!! This is supposed to be an April Fool's Joke...
    
         Anyway this brings us to the point of this question. 106% IS THE MAX 
         PERCENTAGE COMPLETION OF THIS GAME! You can't get any more than 106% 
         without cheating. If someone said you can, then he/she was lying to you. 
         Don't believe him/her! This FAKE rumour is retrieved from neoseeker.com, 
         submitted by The Dr. on 12 November 2004, and expanded by me on 01 April 
         2007.
    
    
    Q20. Can I save this guide to my hard drive, print it, then share it to all my 
    A20. Yes, you are encouraged to do so. BUT, there is one thing you need to 
         remember, PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING in this guide, especially Section 
         XI and all the credits. That's all.
    
    
    Q21. I have a SPAM. Do you want some?
    A21. NO!!! I HAVE HAD ENOUGH SPAM! IF YOU DECIDED TO DELIBERATELY SEND ME SPAM 
         CONTINUOUSLY, YOU WILL BE IGNORED FOREVER! AND EVER!
    
    
    Q22. I have a real question. How can I ask you?
    A22. See Section X for how to contact me.
    
    
    Q23. Are you Chocobo or Xcarvenger?
    A23. I used to have Chocobo as my screen name, but it is a common screen name, 
         so most of the time, it has been taken by other people in a more popular 
         or bigger forum/board. Thus, Xcarvenger was born as my "unique" screen 
         name. My avatar is usually a Chocobo anyway, so you would know that 
         Xcarvenger IS Chocobo. However, NOT all Chocobo is Xcarvenger if that 
         makes sense...
    
    
    Q24. Who made this game again? Naughty Dog, Konami, Universal, Vivendi, Sony, 
         Vicarious Visions, Traveller's Tales or what???
    A24. First of all, this question is not related to time trial for Crash 
         Bandicoot: TWoC so I can just ignore this question. However, because I 
         am just too nice, I will answer this just for you:
         - Naughty Dog is the developer of the first four Crash Bandicoot game, so 
           ND did not make this game. ND involvements in this game were to allow 
           the developers to use the basic formula of Crash Bandicoot games, like 
           the used of time trial (originally from Crash 3), most of the 
           characters' artworks and warp room design. However, without ND, Crash 
           Bandicoot would not be as popular as he is today.
         - Konami is the publisher of this game for NTSC JP (Japan) region.
         - Universal Interactive is the publisher of this game for PAL region.
         - Vivendi Universal is the publisher of this game for NTSC US Region.
         - Sony is the maker of Playstation 2 video game console where this game 
           was originally released for.
         - Vicarious Visions is the next developer that continuing Crash Bandicoot 
           series AFTER Crash: TWoC.
         - Traveller's Tales IS the maker or developer of this game.
    
         So, to answer this question, this game was made/developed by Traveller's 
         Tales using Naughty Dog already established Crash Bandicoot formula.
    
    
    Q25. Last question for the time being, thank you for writing this guide.
    A25. Sorry, but that is not a question. Thanks for the encouragement though...
         I wish more people would say that to me... It really DOES matter you 
         know... but I don't expect much anyway...
    
         So yeah, if you asked me some good questions, your questions will appear 
         below. So, this is not the last question technically (lucky you said for 
         the time being!). So, have any questions about this guide? Contact me.

                                |  List of Glitches  |                       [0711]
                                o--------------------o
    
    1. The infamous "invisible floor" glitch
    ----------------------------------------
    This glitch was usually found accidentally in Weathering Heights. Often, 
    players would miss the first monkey bar and hit the robot instead. They then 
    expected to fall into the pit, but surprisingly they could walk on the pit as 
    if there is a floor there!
    
    The glitch can be used in any area where there is an enemy near a pit. Just get 
    yourself an Aku Aku mask or two and crash into that enemy, losing one Aku Aku 
    mask, but now you can walk on the pit while you are "invisible". The glitch 
    can be used to our advantage for time trial in Compactor Reactor (5), Droid 
    Void (17), Weathering Heights (20) and Gold Rush (22).
    
    Thanks to PlanesWalker and Josher1212 for the naming of this glitch.
    
    
    2. The "Crashteroids" glitch
    ----------------------------
    I found this glitch accidentally one day when I crashed into the red satellites 
    not on purpose. I checked back to see if the clock would still be there, and to 
    my surprise, IT WAS STILL SITTING THERE! So, I found out that we can crash into 
    the closest 6 red satellites and the clock will still be there. Then, with 
    Fethy, I experimented on how far we can exploit this glitch. We found out that 
    we can actually crash into all 9. Later on, Slazzy exploited it even more by 
    saying that you can even destroy the blue satellites and the clock will still 
    be there. Well, this is a really BIG glitch for Crashteroids (18).
    
    For full details of this glitch, check Level 18: Crashteroids on Section III.
    
    
    3. The "Select" glitch in Wizards and Lizards
    ---------------------------------------------
    This glitch can be done by basically pressing the select button when you take 
    the clock in Wizards and Lizards and then you will be transported instantly to 
    the end of the level. You can finish Wizards and Lizards (4) in one second 
    using this glitch.
    
    NOTE: This glitch IS NOT allowed to be used if you want to compete with other 
    people in this level. One reason being this glitch can only be done on specific 
    version of the game, i.e. only on the original version of NTSC PS2. The glitch 
    doesn't work on any Greatest Hit version, PAL version, NGC or X-Box versions. 
    So this gives an unfair advantage for people who have the original NTSC PS2 
    version. Moreover, the glitch makes you finish the level in less than one 
    second with NO SKILL WHATSOEVER REQUIRED, which defeats the purpose of time 
    trial.

                          |  Differences Between Versions  |                 [0721]
                          o--------------------------------o
    
    - There are some differences for relic times in other versions of Crash: TWoC. 
    The relic times in this guide are from the PAL PS2 version.
     
       Here are some differences in PAL NGC version:
       0:55.00 for Level 5 platinum
       1:35.00 for Level 17 gold
       1:25.00 for Level 17 platinum
       1:25.00 for Level 21 gold
       1:55.00 for Level 22 gold
       1:45.00 for Level 22 platinum
       1:10.00 for Level 23 gold
       1:00.00 for Level 23 platinum
    
       Some other version has this time:
       1:30.00 for Level 22 platinum
    
    If you know more about this, please contact me.
    Credits to Slazzy for GameCube relic times and Vegg1 for Gold Rush platinum 
    time for unknown version.
    
    - There are many differences in loading length in different version. Loading 
    time is fast in X-Box and GameCube version. However, it takes almost one minute 
    for each loading screen in the original PS2 version. Fortunately, the loading 
    time in the Platinum/Greatest Hit PS2 version is much shorter (almost twice as 
    fast) than the original PS2 version. However, the loading time in X-Box and 
    Gamecube versions is still heaps faster in comparison to the Platinum/Greatest 
    Hit version of PS2.
    
    - There are rumours circling around speculating that Crash runs slower in the 
    NTSC version of the game in comparison to the PAL version. However, this rumour 
    has not been proven under controlled testing. Note that Youtube and many video 
    streaming site have been known to stuff up the frame rate of uploaded videos 
    (to reduce the size of the video). Therefore, comparing videos that has been 
    uploaded to Youtube or any video sharing/streaming site for that matter is not 
    sufficient enough to prove this.
    
    - There is a cheat where you can get 106% and everything in the game right when
    you start your game. The cheat can be activated by naming your save file 
    "WOMBAT" when you start a new game. Note that this cheat only works in GameCube 
    and X-Box versions. This cheat can be very helpful if you have a PS2 version of 
    Crash: TWoC but your friend (or someone else) has a GameCube and/or X-Box 
    version of the game. Using this cheat, you can experience the "real" time trial 
    challenge for all levels in GameCube or X-Box versions right from the start of 
    the game. Therefore, you will be able to compete with your friends in any level 
    without having to finish the game first.
    
    - In PAL PS2 and PAL NGC versions, the milliseconds can only end in even 
    number, whereas in NTSC PS2, NTSC NGC or any X-Box versions, the milliseconds 
    can end in any number.
