Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back Hints for PlayStation
This level is so annoying because no matter what you do, you have to play it three times. The first time is a secret. Go through normally until you reach the first jetski. Do not hop on it. There will be some boxes floating in the water. Hop off of them to the platform on the right side. When you land on it, you will be transported out of the level in into the secret bonus level. There you can enter the bonus level in Snow Go in which you can obtain the Red Gem! Watch out, IT IS TOUGH!!! The second time be careful not to die, as there is a skull and crossbones platform where you can get this level's hidden gem. Lastly, just run through the level normal to get the normal gem. There you go!
P.S. There is no time trial like in other levels of this kind.
Another way to get the Yellow Gem is to go through the level normally. You should see a timer.
Continue through, take the bonus, fall, and you should get 1 more minute to finish the level. Get to the end and you should see the yellow gem.
Note that the timer will not stop after you get the gem.
To get to the red gem you will have to go into level 7(air crash). At the first surf board there will be an empty platform that you will need to jump on by jumping on the boxes in the water. NOTE: You can not jump off the board you will have to do it from the dock...From there it will take you to a hidden place in snow go, and at the end will be waiting the red gem....Good luck!!!
When you go to Hang Eight or Plant Food, you'll realize that at some point there is a timer at the bottom left-hand of the screen.
You have to finish that level before that timer runs out to get a gem. If you want more time, go to the bonus and lose right away.
Then you'll be warped right next to the bonus and if you look at the timer, there's more time than usual.
Then, you can finish the level faster.
Here is how to get most of the colour gems:
Level 1: Turtle Woods Blue Gem; Just simply walk through the level Without getting any boxes and VOILA! The blue gem should be at the place where the box count is.
Level 2: Snow Go: Red Gem: First go in to Air Crash and on the first river DON'T get on the surfboard thing, there should be some boxes in front of you in the river, use them to jump on to the empty platform. The Platform should warp you to a secret warp area which opens the Snow Go Red Gem warp gate and just that level thing.
Eel Deal: Green Gem: There is a wall which is guarded by nitros just get yourself to the wall and you should be able to jump through it finish that bit and the green gem should be at the end of it.
Level 20: Bee-Having: Purple Gem: Just go through the level as usual until you reac a staircase of nitros, They wont explode! Jump up on them to the top one which should warp you to a Bonus level type a thing just finish that and VOILA!
The purple gem is yours.
Not so sure on the yellow gem but I heard that you have to get all the boxes except on the board part(It Doesn't Work!!). If anyone Knows could you PLEASE put it up for me

In Unbearable when you fall back down in the hole for extra boxxes, you can keep getting lives by going where the voodoo mask.
After you get there, go on the bouncy box onto the platform. Super jump O and X) and there will be two lives there.
Then die. Since there is a checkpoint right next to it, you can go right back and get those same two lives again.
They never go away. Slowly, you can build up your lives.
Remember the Death Round in this level (The skull-coated platform on the left side of the turn)? Complete it successfully (Or use the right path), and then balance across the narrow path thereafter substituting for a bridge.
Jump into the air before the Man-Eating Plant bites you, and land on it. After it disappears, you land on the small platform of grass. Although Crash is getting warped somewhere...
Right first of all in the one were the big polar bear chases you go to the second bridge that the bear falls down then and fall down it.
(you will need lots of lives)
Hi, I'm gonna tell you a trick in the level called Bee-having.
The trick is that when you see a stair of nitros you have to pass through the stairs, it doesn't matter if you touch the nitro crates because those nitro crates are fake.

To get the Blue gem go to Turtle Woods Level 1 and complete
the level without hitting any boxes and you will recieve the
On the levels where Crash runs the opposite direction
(i.e. the boulder levels), you DO NOT have to slide under
the electric sparks. You can simply spin through them.
This makes getting through the level much easier, because
you can just concentrate on spinning the whole way rather
than alternating between spinning and sliding.
On level 20, Bee-Having, there is a checkpoint about
half-way through. On the right of the chasm is a pile
of grey boxes with NITRO boxes covering them. If you
jump to the highest level, you don't blow up, instead,
you warp to a secret level where you get the Purple Gem.
Completing the secret level is tricky, but can be done.
There are not any boxes hidden here, just the gem and
White Gem- In level seven, right before the exit door
you'll find a step to the left of a mask that is in the box.
Jump to the stone floating in the water that has a skull
(the logo that represents poison) and that shall take to
another level where you will receive a white gem.
Green Gem- The Green gem is located in level 10. Where
the tunnel splits in two (I'm not sure if it's the first
or second time) go through the tunnel that has no apples
in it. When you come to a dead end, walk right through
the wall and keep going until you receive the green gem.
Secret room- There are extra levels in Crash 2. In order
to get them go to lebvel 13 (Bear Down), go to the end
and when you jump off the bear walk backwards and there
will be platforms over the water. Jump to the platform
in the middle and you will be transported to the secret
room where you can enter other levels to get the gems,
and you will also see the entrance to levels 26, 27.
In the second warp world, there is a white dog.
If you play with it and pet it for about five minutes,
it gives you 10 free lives.
First, get the purple gem in level 8. Then go to the
entrance of the level and jump up and down on the little
polar bear. After several times jumping on it, you'll be
awarded with 10 extra lives!
When you get to the end of Un-Bearable jump over the
hole the bear fell down and run to the little bear to get
warped to Totally Bear.
just before you get to the first polar bear level jump on the polar bear outside the level a couple of times and you should get more lives
On "The Pits", when you have entered a pit , jump on the first rat to bounce out of the pit.
If you're in need of some quick lives, go to Unbearable and go underground where you see the third beehive.
Then go over the ground and when the bees come, spin once, and get a life.
This takes practice, but if done right, you can keep doing it and get as many lives as you want.
How to get a box and a life:
1.go to crash crush.
2.after the first run,continue along until you reach 2 separate ways.
4.get to the end.
5.you will find a box and a life.
