Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
Crash Bandicoot 1
|I like ending my quizzes with really difficult questions. This is about the final battle against Cortex. For those of you who are un-aware of this battle, he has 5 H.P. During each of the 5 stages, he will shoot a certain colour of energy at you, red blue or green, and a certain number of times I.E. 2 blues and a red and so on. And with each life you take off of him, the sequence changes. My question is this: What is the sequence he uses, after you take 2 hit points off of him?||"Crash Bandicoot": The Original
one red, two blue, one red, one green, one red, three blue, two green. Mean, wasn't it? The first sequence is two reds and a green. When he's down to 4 H.P. he uses one red, one blue, one red, three blue, two green. The answer is what he uses on 3 H.P. When on 2 H.P. he uses the fast red sequence. What I mean by that is he shoots them at double speed at you. When he's down to 1 H.P. he seems to give up and just shoots a green at you, spin it back and well done. You've completed "Crash Bandicoot."
Pinstripe Pottoroo & Doctor Nitrus Brio. Note: When fighting Pinstripe (yes it is Pottoroo, I checked. :)) you can take 3 H.P. off of him almost immediately when he runs from one chair to the other, just by spinning him 3 times in succession. Until "Warped" was released, Dr. Nitrus Brio held the record for the highest number of Hitpoints: 9.
5. Those of you who picked 4, and are wondering why it's wrong, 0 is counted as a number. So although 4 is the number that appears when you push triangle, if you lose those four lives, the number 0 will appear when you push triangle. So you are in fact given, 5 lives. This is true for "Cortex Strikes Back", "Warped", "The Wrath Of Cortex" and "Twinsanity."
19. Alot of fans at first believed this to be a relatively easy level for it's stage in the game. There are only four bad guys in the whole level, only about 30 boxes and a bonus level in there as well. (At this stage, not every level had a bonus in it.) However, it's what these bad guys did that made this level so challenging; and frustrating if you're trying to get the gem. The first two bad guys throw barrels at you, which roll down a set path. The 3rd bad guy mixes this with ones that bounce. In order to dodge it, you need precise timing. The 4th guy only throws bouncing barrels. However, if you have a mask or two equipped, the gem should be easily achieved. Note: Rollers are yellow, bouncers are brown.
Island 1 - 1, Island 2 - 2, Island 3 - 3. Papu Papu is the only boss on Island one. He appears after six levels. Ripper Roo is the second boss, he's on the second island and is the second level on that island. Coincidence? You decide. Koala Kong is the last level on island two. The final three bosses are spread out evenly across the third island with about five levels inbetween them. Apart from the 5th boss and Cortex, there's only two between them.
Papu Papu + Ripper Roo. Interestingly, the H.P. meter for Papu Papu and Ripper Roo is blue. For Koala Kong it starts of red and goes purple near the end. For the 4th boss it starts off yellow and goes a dark orange. For the 5th boss it starts off green and turns yellow before starting to fade to purple. For Dr. Neo Cortex, it's yellow to red.
33. There are 25 'normal' levels, two 'special (hidden)' levels and six boss battles. Out of the original trilogy for the Playstation, this game has the second highest number of different levels, succeeded by "Warped" which has 35.
30. The first boss has three H.P., the second boss has three H.P. as well, the third boss has four, the fourth has six, increasing even more to the fifth boss who has nine. It decreases however, for the sixth boss, down to only five H.P.
Brendan O'Brien. Clancy Brown would go on to voice Dr. Neo Cortex in the two sequels to this game and it's spin offs "Crash Team Racing" and "Crash Bash." Jim Cassey I made up and William Hootkins had a one-off contribution to the series in "Warped" as Dingodile.
No. Very strangely, you have to let the game idle for about 30 - 40 seconds until you see the introduction scene. Clicking new game will place you immediately on N. Sanity Beach.
