We all know about if you beat Cortex you win the game. However, there is another way to finish the game without beating Cortex. Collect all the gems (Or just use the Super Password) And go to the Great Hall. Once you get there, instead of jumping over the one pit and going to the goal at the end of the level, a gem platform will appear.
Go onto it and it will take you to another gem platform, carry this on until you get to a giant wooden platform. You then go to another set of gem platforms and carry this on until you get to a third giant wooden platform with a big red curtain blocking a stone arch. Go up to it and it will go up and reveal the female bandicoot.
There will then be a minimovie where the two bandicoots fly off on top of a giant buzzard and you'll have completed the game!
