Level 21 (Piston It Away) Box Gem
Aku-Aku mask is recommended, maybe 20+ lives to ensure you don't run out.
This box gem is among the hardest to get in the game, as it involves quite a bit of back tracking which is made difficult by the shrink rays. I recommend having at least one Aku-Aku mask since one of the rays is difficult to dodge on the return trip.So first off, go through the level like normal and make sure you do not die. This involves a Death Route and so dying before reaching the platform forces you to back out and try again. Once you make it to the Death Route platform, you do not need to worry about dying anymore as it won't disappear. DO NOT jump on the platform yet, and continue to proceed through the level. You should see a shrink ray that you need to jump over to continue, with a baddie behind and below it. DO NOT KILL THIS BADDIE, as you need to jump on him to make the jump back up.Complete the bonus round and before long you should reach a bunch of Nitro crates with a life between them. The "?" Crate here is the last one you need to break before you should make your way back. Obtain the life if you wish but since it isn't in a crate it is completely optional.On your way back, there is a shrink ray with 4 trigger plates in front of it. This is really hard to dodge and I do recommend having a mask to help with this, however it is possible to do it without getting hit. A well timed slide-jump is all that is needed to jump over it.Once you make your way back to the platform, which still should be there even if you died after passing it, simply complete the Death Route to obtain both its gem and the box gem. There is a Checkpoint located within the route to eliminate the need to continuously back track after dying. Hope this helped and thanks for reading.

99 Lives Grind
An easy way to grind lives is by going to level 16 Unbearable. After the bear falls down the pit and you hit the checkpoint box, jump in the pit after the bear. This area is where the hidden boxes are to get the silver gem for this level.

Play your way through this bonus area until you get to the checkpoint. Activate the ! Box and go up and get the mask box. On the platform next to this, two free life boxes hang just out of sight, jump to get them. Now these to boxes regenerate every time, so I recommend collecting the fruit in the immediate area and the lives, them jump off the ledge.

Each time you die you will still be one life ahead. Also there are about 20 wumpa in this little area, so every 5 times you die and collect you get another life from the fruit.
All Secret warp room levels!!!!!!
So, as u know there is a secret warproom in crash 2 CSB and many different ways 2 get 2 it and each way opens a different level.Because im nice il tell u all the ways 2 get 2 it and open up all the levels!!Here we go ----------

Level 7 - Air Crash- Go on level 13 (Bear Down), and play to the end where the bear throws you across. You will see a load of floating bits of ice and a bit of land in the middle. If you carefully jump on the bits of floating ice to the land, you will be scooped off to the secret warproom and a secret bit of the level air crash will be there!

Level 2- Snow go - So youve all seen the pesky red gem floating around in snow go that you cant get 2! Heres how 2 get it!Go to the normal level air crash and when you get to the 1st wave rider thingi before you get on you can see a platform to your right, now, if you look at the boxes near it there is 2 normal boxes and one jumpy box(this cud take a few goes so have patience and lots of lives!)you jump accross these three boxes and land onto the platform which will scoop you off to the secret warproom and ,volia!there is the secret snow go and at the end of the level is the sexy red gem! woo woo!

Level 14 - Road to Ruin- Now on the level road to ruin if you've ever attempted to get the perfect gem you'll know that you is always missing a few boxes. Now this is possoble to do with out the secret level but tricky!If you look at the begining of the level you'll notice the clear box shapes that you can make solid with the ! box. and you can see the ! box on a platform to the left before i discovered the secret warp room i kept trying to skid jump accross to the ! box and it did work and i got the extra boxes. however it is v.hard so here is how you get the secret level. go on to the level diggin it. near the end you'll come accross 2 spitter plants next to each other, however 1 is on a platform type thing in the middle of a pit. if you jump on the platform ones head and belly flop on him, again you will be escorted to the secret warp room and see that road to ruin has appeared!!!!!!!!!!

Level 26- Totally Bear - an extra level this time!go to level 15 Unbearable! and at the end the little cute bear throws you accross the pit then dissapears as the big bear falls down the pit. if you skid jump back accross the pit and walk on a bit you will see little bear sat there on his own. walk up to him and you will be transportesd to the secret warproom yet again!and have unlocked totally bear.

Level 27 - Totally Fly- Quite hard to explain but here goes!
in level 16 Hangin out there is a hole bout half way through the level. if you fall through it like normal and go to the end of that path you'll fall through another hole into a pool of water. if you walk back from there you'll come across yet another hole. your first impression will be "oh its the hole ive just been down" but NO! its another hole in disguise as that one!!!!!!! drop down it and you'll come across another clearing which once again will take you up to the secret warproom to totally fly!

have fun!
Beating N. Gin
N. Gin can either be easy or hard, for me he was both. Here is the strategy on beating him.

1 + 2. He will fly around, opening his hands. Throw wumpa at his hands when they open. Eventually, he will fly and fire a laser, so avoid it. Once each hand has been hit 10 times, it will explode.

3 + 4. Now, he will fly around, opening his shoulders. He will start by going to the right, cause he will fire missiles. Now, just go to the left, because he will fire them on the other side. After one shoulder is hit five times, it will explode and his pattern will change. He will fire one missile, so do a timed jump over it. Just hit the shoulder until it explodes.

5. Now, he will go out of sight. Stand on the middle platform and when he pops up, hit him with two wumpa. Now jump to the right platform, because he will use his waste cannon to attack that platform. Now, when he pops up in front of the right platform, and hit him with two more wumpa. Now, hop to the left one, and when he pops up, hit him with one last wumpa and he will be defeated.

Body Slam
To do a Body Slam, press X then O.
Coloured gem cheats
Getting blue gem:

On the first level, complete the level without getting any boxes (aku aku's, check points, ? boxes, lives, tnts and bouncy boxes. At the end of the level there will be a blue gem.

Getting red gem:

To get the red gem in level 2 (snow go), you must go to the 2nd warp room and go to level 7 (air crash), as soon as you get to the jet ski part, DO NOT GO ON IT. Instead, jump on the boxes in the water beside the jet ski (right) bounce on the 2 boxes, then jump onto the platform. Now you go back inside the level (snow go level tunnel) and complete the track to fall and earn your gem by coming back to level 2 (snow go).

Getting green gem:

Go to level 10 (eel deal). Run along all the way to the split (2 way tunnel) and turn right. You should see a room full of nitros! Some how, get to the end of the room and go through that circular wall thing. Then go to the end of the path and you will find a green gem.

Getting yellow/gold gem:

Go to level 11 (plant food) and as soon as you get to the jet ski part, there will be a timer! You must complete the level in alloted time. At the end quickly get your gem or it will spin away! (you might need 2 Aku Aku masks to do this)! Hint: every time you die the time gets extended for you!

Getting purple gem:

Go to level 20 (bee-having) and walk all the way until you get to the nitro stack of stairs! Think in your head: What would a stack of nitros be doing there????? Climb the steps and you will get to a special level. Collect the gem at the start and beat the path. Hint: if you can't complete the path, then just get the gem and lose a life and then you will be at your check point with the gem!
Coloured Gems

Gems And Other Secrets
To get the following gems do this:

Blue Gem- Enter Turtle Woods and do the level without hitting ANY boxes. Then go to the end and claim your Blue Gem. You have to have the crystal and silver gem for this to work.

Red Gem- Go to Level 7 (Air Crash) and when you get to the first Surfboard and DO NOT GET ONTO IT. Then you will see 5 boxes. Jump onto the first 2, then bounce onto a platform you see. This will take you to a Secret Warp Room. You shall then see a Portal leading to the secret area of Snow Go (level 2). Finish this and gain your red gem. Then complete Snow Go.

Green Gem- Go into The Eel Deal (level 10) and when you get to the first set of tunnels and go down each of them once. Find the tunnel which contains lots of Nitros. Go right to the end of the Nitro room and you will see a door. It is not a real door. Just walk straight through it. Then complete the secret level, gain the Green Gem, then go back to the Nitro room! This is hard, but you should be able to do it. Then complete the rest of the normal level.

Yellow/Gold Gem- Go into Plant Food (level 16 or 17 haha) and when you get to the first Surfboard there is a timer. Finish the level before the timer runs out and gain the Yellow Gem. (Hint: This is the same on Hang Eight (level 3) apart from you get a silver gem).

Purple Gem- Go into Bee-Having (level 20) and when you get about half-way through you should see a bunch of Nitros on steel boxes. They are decoy fake Nitros, and you can jump onto them. When you reach the top you shall be teleported to the Secret Area where you have to complete a very complicated level to claim your Purple Gem. Then die, and when you respawn you should be in the normal area. Finish the level and you will have all 5 coloured gems.

43 out of 42 Gems- Complete the game 100% and you will have 42 out of 42 Gems. Then go into Snow Go (level 2) get all the boxes until you reach the last Steel one, which has an arrow on it. In front of you, there is a seal. Bounce on the box for 5 minutes, and then kill the seal. You will then be holding a Gem. Complete the rest of the level, getting all the boxes, and you will have 101% and 43 out of 42 Gems.

Secret Platform For Purple Gem
At "Bee-Having" level, you will see a stack of Nitro Boxes (in the middle of the level). Go to the top of this stack (don't worry, they won't explode because they aren't real Nitros). You will be teleported into another section of the level. In the section you can find a Purple Gem

The gems
Here are the gems:

-Yellow--Plant Food-When you get to the jetski, you must complete the level in the alloted time.
-Green--The Eel Deal-When you come to the fork, go right into the room with the ton of nitros. There is a huge locked door in the back, and you can actually pass through that door which leads you to the green gem.-Purple--Bee-Having-Very hidden. When you see a big pile of nitros, they are fake. You can climb up the nitros to go into a warp to a secret area.-Blue--Turtle Woods-You must get through this level without breaking one box. Simple.-Red--Snow Go-You need the secret warp from Air crash. in Air Crash, you need to jump on the boxes near the first jetski. You have to land on the platform to be warped to the secret warp room,
and go through the secret path in Snow go and go to the gem.

the hole in the game...
there is a area in one of the two bee areas that in which you go under ground and there is a hole... you cant get out of it... you go around tring to get out... but even the spin attack... it is funny though. to get out... either die or exit through the start button... go to warp room... however this hole is in the middle of it, so if you go to warp room, you will have to start over.... HAVE FUN!!!
Warp rooms

10 Extra Lives
If you body slam the bear in front of the level Bear It, 5 times in a row, then you'll get 10 Extra Lives.
100+ Lives- But beware
To get 100+ lives, first get 99. Then, go to a Level and get a life. When its moving toward your life total, exit the level. The game lags a little and you\'ll be back in the warp room, with 100 Lives. You can repeat this to get more lives.

BUT BEWARE: If you get a life with 100+ lives and it manages to get to your life total, it will reset back to 99! Beware!

5. go to the end and get in the warp room, it may be a colored gem, a crystal, or a clear gem.


Air Crash Cheat!!!
At one of the places where you jump on the Wave Rider thingy in the water. You will see many boxes heading in a diagonal top-right direction if you jump on two of the normal boxes-on a jumpy box-and on 1 normal box and onto that square of concrete it will take you to a secret warp room!!
you will here more from me The Masked Ham-Ham! Bye!
Alternate Ending
Finish the game with all gems and crystals and beat Cortex.
Boss Revival
If you already beat a boss then while you are moving on the platform to the next room, hold the triangle and you'll be able to fight the boss again!
Easy lives
Go to the second warp room. Jump on the polar bear to gain 10 extra lives. Another way is to go to Level 2, Snow Go. This level is pretty easy and will give you 4-5 lives every time you finish it!
Faster Crash
Note: A dual shock controller is required. Press L3 and R3 rapidly and Crash will become a little bit shorter and faster.
Fly on Ripper Roo
On Ripper Roo's battle, when he is knocked out, jump on him, and he will still be damaged, but you will remain on his head. When he bounces again, he will launch you in the air and you will be fine. Try it! It's fun!

Get more than 99 lives
To make this glitch work, get 99 lives and enter a level. Get 100 apples, and when the Crash symbol goes to the upper part of the screen, and starts to move towards your remaining lives, press Start and return to the Warp Room. You\'ll have 100 lives. Repeat this to get more lives
Gold Gem
You can get the yellow gem by beating Plantfood in a certain time. The time starts after the checkpoint before the first jet ski, but it's very hard to finish the level in time. So, wait until the time runs out and then go into the bonus. Run off the edge in the bonus. When you are warped back you will have a minute and 24 seconds to finish the level and get the gem! Good luck!
More time in race levels
In the levels where you must race against a clock for a gem (Hang Eight and Plant Food), it is possible to get more time. With the clock running, enter the bonus area. As soon as you are there, purposely fail by jumping off the side of a platform. When you respawn in the level, the clock will have restarted with even more time than in the beginning of the race.
Over 100 lives
Firstly, get 99 lives. Enter level and collect a life (1 life up, 100 apples). As soon as the picture of crash goes to the top, moving towards the 99 lives, PRESS start and exit the level. Then press triangle to view your lives and it should say 100 lives.
Return to Bosses
Stand on the platform which takes you up to the next warp room but before you go up, press L1, L2, R1, R2, Triangle and Up.
See Crash run
In any level where there is a running pad, (like Diggin' it, body slam the pad to see Crash fly up and run like crazy!
