.A Few Tips!
If you are running low on lives, repeat Nsanity beach over & over for easy lives, but for lots of lives but harder, get the green gem from the lost city and go to Castle Machinery. A ggem path appeaes at the start with 27 (i think) lives. Then the exit takes you to the end of the level!


Papu Papu: First he will slam his staff onto the floor. Jump on his hea and avoid his spin attack, then jump on his head again. One more jump kills him, but DON'T let himj fall on you when he's dead. Jump on the chair to avoid the spin attack. Papu has three health points

Ripper Roo: The crazy roo will bounce about in set patterns. It is easy to dodge him. Set off the TnT countdown and hope the mental roo is tricked into being blown up. Be careful not to drown!

Pattern 1: the centre tile, the bottom left tile and the bottom right tile.

Pattern 2: The centre left tile, the centre tile, the centre right tile and the centre bottom tile.

Pattern 3: the centre top tile, the centre right tile, the centre bottom tile and the centre left tile. Ripper Roo has three health points

Koala Kong: Dodge the TNTs and Kong's rocks. When a rock doesn't break, spin it to Kong but make sure no mine cart is protecting him. Koala Kong has four health points

Pinstripe: Hide behind a chair whilst he fires his tommy gun randomly round his office until he stops to reload. You have a short time to spin him so becareful. Pinstripe has six health points

Dr. Nitrus Brio: Brio will throw green or red beakers at you. Green beakers summon blob monsters. Jump on their heads to lower brios health, red beaker are attack beakers. Once only three health points remain, Nitrus will drink his potion and turn into the NCredible Brio hulk monster (slightly scary for a 5 year old D:). Jump on the blocks and spin his head three times to defeat him. Nitrus Brio has nine health points.

Dr. Neo Cortex: The demented, mad scientist will shoot lasers at you. There are 3 colours: the standard Red laser, Green lasers, the lasers you must spin back to damge him and the trickery Blue laser, which reappear at the sides of the screen and may move up and down to attack you again. His pace of shooting is normal, but when he has two health points he will launch a barrage of red lasers and few greens, so be careful. On the last health point he sort of gives up: shooting a single green laser to finish him. Then claim your prize: Tawna Bandicoot! Neo Cortex has five health points.

I hope I helped, some bosses are hard to work out how to defeat. If you could be bothered to read it all, you get a reward: if you have 100%ed the game and are wondering so, thats it? you must go to the great hall and jump the path of gems and you will fly away with Tawna. Happy ending. You also get a special epilogue credits sequence, informing you what happened to the boss characters <img src="" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" />
Avoiding Stones
In the the levels, Jungle Rollers and Rolling Stones there are stones. Here's how to avoid them:

Choose a side. When the stone isn't on that side, run. If there are two stones go through the middle when they're not there.
Here's how to beat the scientist:
First, Cortex will fire two pink rays at you and one green ray. Dodge the pink rays and spin back the green one. It will hit Cortex and he will be hurt! Next, he will fire some pink, some blue, and one green ray. The blue rays will come back so be careful! Spin back the green. Repeat this to hurt him! Cortex will fire a few pink, a LOT blue, and two green rays. Some of the blue rays move up and down. Spin back the two green. Repeat to hurt him. Now, Cortex will use his most deadly attack: He'll fire a barrage of pink rays and one green. Try to jump around and run a lot. Spin back the green. Repeat. Finally, Cortex will only fire green rays at you. Spin one back and Cortex will fall out of the sky, defeated. HOORAY!
Easy fight
During the fight with Papu-Papu, if you up on his chair, he can't hit you.
Get the gem on the first level
To do this, get the first two Aku masks, but leave the last one, go to the left and get all the boxes, then go to the right and spin the ! box, go all the way back and get the Aku, now all you have to do is run across the boxes and they smash up!
Koala Kong
Here's how to beat the beast:
First, Kong will throw three really small (at least to him) rocks at you. Spin them or avoid them. Then, he will throw another big-to-you, small-to-him rock. Spin it back. He will take damage! After a few hits, TNT will start falling so be careful.
Koala Kong Help
Here's a quick tip;

The rocks that Kong througs at you before he gets tired are breakable. Spin Attack them, and you won't have to worry about running into TNTs as much as before.
N. Brio
Here's how to beat the scientist:
First, he'll summon a green blob. Jump on it. He'll throw a beaker bomb at you. He'll summon two blobs. Jump on them. He'll throw three beaker bombs and three blobs. Jump on the blobs. He'll drink some potion. He'll turn into something like the Hulk. Jump on the platform and spin his head three times to win!
Papu Papu
Here's how to defeat the big guy:
First, he will slam his club on the ground. Jump on his head. Next, he will spin around once. Jump over his club and jump on his head. Then, he will spin two times. Jump on his head. He will fall and die. Oh, and one more thing: DO NOT LET HIM FALL ON YOU!
Here's how to beat the gangster:
Pinstripe will fire his Tommy gun. Go behind the couch to avoid the bullets. He will stop to reload. Spin him. Repeat two times. Now Pinstripe will fire a few bullets and then his gun will jam. Spin him. Repeat two times. Pinstripe will spin around and die (still firing, figures. Don't worry, though. These shots don't hit Crash).
Power Run
On either of the two boulder chase levels, spin while running from the boulders. You will slightly move faster, allowing time for even one or two fence or pole trippings! Beware that you don't spin yourself into pits, however.

Ripper Roo
Here's how to defeat the spaz:
Ripper Roo will jump around. Do NOT be on the same platform he is on because you will be hurt if you do. See those BIG TNT boxes? Jump on them. If it explodes when Roo is near it, he will be hurt. Repeat two more times. His pattern changes each time he loses health so be careful.

The Unstoppable Nitrus Brio
When Nitrus drinks the chemical and turns into the incredible hulk, this is what you need to do.

Part I:
When the first block falls, jump on top of it and jump onto his head as always. Then the next block will fall, and do the same thing as before.

Part II:
Right now, you should have 2/2 or 1/2 of the masks you started with. need to have one mask. When the third block falls, jump on top of it, and make sure that Crash is facing the you. Now just stand still and wait for Brio to come toward you and attack you. You'll loose a mask, but wait! Brio is still standing, and is faster than before.

Part III:
For you to keep alive in this part, make sure you're standing on top of a block. Jump on to his head twice more and he'll go even faster. At this point, all you have to do is make sure you're on top of a block, and you've become invincible too. But you need to be on a block before he rushes to you.
