Crash Bandicoot 2 picks up where Crash Bandicoot left off - 

As Cortex falls from his hot air baloon, he takes refuge in a dark cave and finds a 
master crystal. Soon he and his old friend N.Gin make a space station called the 
CORTEX VORTEX and plans to destroy the earth with the power of the master crystal 
and 25 slave crystals! But he hits a snag! He got no friends on Earth left so how 
does he collect the slave crystals? And this is where Crash comes in. Cortex 
manages to convince Crash that he wants to save the Earth with the crystals and 
stop his enemies from destroying it! So Crash, like a sheep, agrees to get the 
crystals! SOMEBODY PLEASE TELL CRASH HE'S GOING TO DESTROY THE EARTH!!!!!!!!

                          GUIDE TO GETTING THE COLOURED GEMS

As you know, you need the coloured gems to play the bonus gem levels. I'll just 
tell you how to get the coloured gems -

BLUE GEM - First, get to LEVEL 1: TURTLE WOODS. then get NONE (that's right, 
NONE!!) of the boxes. P.S. When you come across the wall of boxes, jump over it by 
jumping only ONCE (unless you want to risk breaking a box) on the bounce crate. 
(the box without a '?' symbol) That should bounce you over the wall of boxes.

RED GEM - First, get to LEVEL 13: BEAR DOWN. At the end of the level, where Polar 
the polar-bear throws you off, you should notice that there are a trail of blue 
icicles leading up to a white iceberg. Jump from icicle to icicle until you get to 
the iceberg. When Crash's feet touch the ground, you will be transported to a 
secret warp-pad. Go to the second level in the warp-pad. (which WILL be open) You 
will be transported to a secret LEVEL 2: SNOW-GO. Once there, GO! GO! GO! Kill all 
the enemies and get through the whole level. At the end, there is a fall. While 
falling, you'll get the gem. Then complete Snow-Go normally because after the fall 
you'll be in the middle of the normal SNOW-GO.

YELLOW GEM - OK, first finish PLANT FOOD. (this is officiial. I played my game CD 
all over again to verify this, so it is NOT the level HANG EIGHT you have to do) 
Then do it again. When you get to the first jet-ski, a time limit to finish the 
level comes. DO NOT waste any time getting boxes or double-tracking to kill 
opponents. Just GO, GO, GO, GO!!!! WHen you are on jet-skis, keep pressing X. It'll 
make you go faster. Also, I strongly suggust piggybacking a double (golden-feather) 
Aku-Aku with you because its damn tough to do the level in just 1 minute without 
getting hit. Also, when you have to get through all those platforms with the Kart-
Eaters (purple plants) on them a double Aku-Aku will come in really handy.

GREEN GEM - Get to level 10: EEL DEAL. (think its level 10 anyway) In the first 
fork in the path, on the right there will be loads of nitros. Work Your way past 
them. Then, there will be a nitro stack shaped like this: L_. Do a slide jump to 
the right and you will go right through the wall which is after the L of nitros. 
Finish this secret level to get the green gem. (Its right at the end.) Also, to get 
back to the normal level, either kill yourself (you'll still have the gem) or go 
backwards through the secret level back to the normal one.

PURPLE GEM - Get to the level 20: BEE - HAUING. Near the middle of the level, there 
will be a stacks of nitros going upwards like steps. Get to the topmost step to be 
transported to a secret level. Just after the beginning there is the Purple Gem. 
All you have to do is get your jumps right and defeat 2 moles.

                                  SECRET WARP-PAD

Not many people know that there is a SECRET SIXTH WARP-PAD with two extra levels in 
it! The other three levels are secret parts of some normal levels. I know all the 
ways on how to get there -

1) Do the level BEAR DOWN. (Warp-pad 3) At the end where polar throws you off, you 
can see that while you are flying through the air, over the water, there are some 
blue icicles leading up to an iceberg. Jump from icicle to icicle until you get to 
the iceberg. When Crash's feet touch the iceberg, you'll be transported to the 
secret warp-pad.

2) Go to AIR CRASH. (Warp-pad 2) The first time you have to ride the Jet-Ski, 
DON'T! because you can jump from '?' box to '?' box until you reach a platform on 
the river. When Crash's feet touch the ground, you'll be transported to the secret 
warp-pad.

3) Go to the level UNBEARABLE. (Warp-pad 3) right at the end, where Polar the polar 
bear throws you off, and you go rocketing over the pit, turn around and jump over 
the pit which you went over. If you keep going you will see Polar sitting around. 
Go up to him and you'll get transported to the secret warp-pad.

4) Go to the level DIGGIN' IT. (level 17 - Warp-pad 4) When you come across on of 
spitting plants which is on a CIRCULAR platform surrounded by a pit, jump onto the 
spitting plant and body slam it. (If you are not already transported to it then go 
onto the grassy part of circular platform) (DISTINGUISHING MARK - the spitting 
plant is surrounded by a pit)

5) Go to the level HANGIN' OUT. (level 16 - Warp-pad 4) After you've gotton past 
the first 2 parts where you are hanging on avoiding those mine-thingys, you should 
fall through a hole into some eel-less water. If you go "towards" the screen 
instead of "away" from it you will fall through another pit and now you have to do 
that hangin' thing again axcept now lava is under you and the mine-thingys go A LOT 
faster. Get through the hangin' thing and when Crash's feet touch the ground after 
getting through the hangin' thing you will be transported to the secret warp-pad.

NOW MAKE A NOTE OF THIS BECAUSE IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT!!!! - 

If you go through the BEAR DOWN way, you will be able to play the first secret 
level. (A secret part of AIR CRASH) When you go through the AIR CRASH way, you will 
be able to do the second secret level. (A secret part of SNOW GO) When you take the 
DIGGIN' IT way, you will be able to play the third secret level. (A secret part of 
ROAD TO RUIN [level 14]) When you take the UNBEARABLE way, you will be able to play 
the secret level, LEVEL 26: TOTALLY BEAR. When you go through the HANGIN' out way, 
you will be able to do the secret level, LEVEL 27: TOTALLY FLY.
