Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back

Boss Warp

  • To go to the next or previous boss, press and hold L1, L2, R1, R2, and Triangle when standing on the middle platform of a warp room.

    Clear Gems

  • Read below to find out how to get some clear gems.

    Level     Instructions
         3         Beat level in the given time (Hint: when
                   you go to the bonus, die right away.
                   This gives you more time).
         17        Take the death route.
         21        Take the death route.
         23        Take the death route.

    Colored Gems

  • Here's how to get all the colored gems:

    TURTLE WOODS (Blue): Get no boxes.
         THE EEL DEAL (Green): Go past the dead end in the Nitro box filled room.
         PLANT FOOD (Yellow): Get no boxes and beat the timer.
         BEE-HAULING (Purple): Go up the stairs of Nitro boxes.

    10 Extra Lives

  • In the second warp room, go to the barking bear and jump on him until 10 extra lives come out of him. (NOTE: This can only be done once.)

    Free Crystal

  • To get a crystal in the third warp room without playing a level, go back to the first warp room and beat one of the warp tunnels. Crash will take out a crystal and toss it up but the crystal will go to the third warp room.

    Secret Levels

  • When Crash's sister says "Make yourself useful and get batteries for my computer," wait and a bonus stage will appear.

    Right before the first "Check Point" box in Turtle Woods there is an octagon on the ground with a menacing face. Belly-flop onto the face and Crash will fall right through it into a new level.

    In the "UNBEARABLE" level, when the second bear falls off the bridge, go back and jump into the space where he fell. This should take you to a level with turtles and enemies who shoot at you.
