Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back

Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back

Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back is the second game in the Crash Bandicoot series and the sequel to the original game. The gameplay of Crash Bandicoot 2 is largely similar to that of the original. However, there are some differences. Players make their way through a limited environment, smashing crates that each contain a bonus of some sort. If you break all the crates in a level, you receive the level's gem. The player can also collect additional clear and colored gems by finding and touching them. Colored gems activate secret areas. When the player collects all the gems in the game, the secret ending is activated.

Story

After the last fight with Crash Bandicoot, Cortex is thrown onto Crash's island. In a cave he finds a crystal that has great powers. Cortex plans to use these powers to create an improved Cortex Vortex that will turn all the people on Earth into his will-less slaves. But to do so, he must find 25 other crystals to power the Cortex Vortex. He recruits his old enemy Crash to find them, but Crash knows nothing of Cortex's evil plans.
