Cold Hard Crash

[edit] Information

Cold Hard Crash is level 18 in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back. It is another snow and ice level, and a lot harder than the first 2 snow and ice levels, Snow Go and Snow Biz.

First, there are new additions to this level. One is a circular shaped platform you have to jump on to get to the other side of large holes throughout the level. The catch is that these platforms drop down after a while, and if you're still standing on one when it drops, it's certain doom for our marsupial friend.

Another new thing is icicles, they only appear very little through the level. Once you walk under one, it'll shake a little and then drop. They are easy to avoid getting hit by, so they don't really pose a threat.

The third of the new additions is the rolling stone circles. Their path takes up the whole width of Crash's path. They roll from left to right and are fairly easy to get by, unless there is more than one placed next to each other.

There is a skull route stage in this level.


  • Colored Gem: No
  • Clear Gem: 2 (one is from a skull route)
  • Boxes: 155 (31 from the bonus stage)
