Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex Hints for PlayStation 2
Extra in level 1 see elephant in the water or some locker hit hes head and give you one Life, the skull round is some platform give you a hard path for extra boxes , gems , new end level and level 8 red gem path have one gem and one POWER The Power Is Super Body...
(note : the skull round not appear if you drying but if not we stay that platform)
If you do the third level,you can get around 17 lives.It's true!
Jump 2 times triple spin run fast use bakooka easily walk and Finally body slam.Now you have unlocked electric bolts from Crash's arms by pressing R1 and holding it!!! I learned this by trying different combinations of power buttons. You should try it because it really works!
Die 5 times in a row and gain 25 extra lives!!
\When on the avalanche mission, don't attemp to get the boxes. Instead, just keep boarding as the avalanche will destroy them for you.
Complete the game with all 46 gems to unlock a different ending.
If you are looking for extra lives fast, go to the level "Artic Antics" and go through the level a lot.You can also shoot the mamoths to gain a life.
In the last boss level, "Crunch Time", you can avoid being frozen or being burnt by fire.Jump on one of the petadstals that the laser beams come out of and the ice rocks can't hit you, nor can the fire.
For some extra lives shoot the mammoths on Arctic Antics with the bazooka.
If you have the Bazooka and you are on a level with the Mammoths on, shoot them and you get an extra life.
On the level Wizards and Lizards which is no. 4 in section 1 when you get passed the wizard and across the bridge then you will see a round thing with a question mark on it. Jump on it and it will take you to a bonus area where you get extra lifes.
On the last boss level when you fight all four elementals, the only way to hit Crunch is to use the Bazooka. Just in case anyone didn't know.
If you want the pink gem, right after you escape the waive and the door closes, hit the checkbox. Just before the exit there's the green bonus box and pink platform.
DON'T brake the box before getting on the platform, as this will explode the nitro boxes destroying your remaining 3 boxes for another gem, plus it destroys the path to the PINK gem.
Hope this saves you some trouble.
Also, don't bother getting all the gems at once before getting all the powers, because you won't be able to.
