  *Adventure walkthrough
  *Legal stuff


          Hi everyone!!! This is my very first FAQ (still working on 
South Park Rally PSX) so please enjoy it and I hope that this will help. 
First of all, I'm Mexican, I made this FAQ in English because I can earn 
extra point in English with this (yay!) so if you find some or a lot of 
words spelled wrong I ask you to be patient. If you see a mistake FROM 
THE GAME NOT GRAMMAR I will be glad if you let me know. 

The game
          I am a big fan of Crash's non-adventure games, specially this 
one, this game is like Mario Party N64 or that new party game of Sonic 
for Dreamcast, in these games the most important thing is those fun 
creative mini-games, the fact is that these are very simple and easy to 
play and that all of them are multi player games.

          The history is very simple, Aku Aku and Uka Uka are talking 
about all the fights that they had for the crystals and they agree that 
there's one way to solve this… a contest where there's only one winner 
and this will decide once for all who gets the crystals.

          There is also a secret code to unlock a Spyro: Year of the 
Dragon demo. At the SCE screen, hold the R1+L1+[] buttons and press 
start. WARNING: This may cause your game to crash, get it?, crash (lol)

          When you press X in the Crash Bash screen you will see 4 
    -Adventure: you'll have to beat this mode to unlock all the secret 
mini-games *1 or 2 players*.
    -Battle: you can practice mini-games or play with someone else *1 to 
4 players*.
    -Tournament: you can play a tournament of a mini-game with 4 
different arenas, the one who has the most number of trophies is the 
winner *1 to 4 players*.
    -Options: you can change the options of the game, such as the 
vibration of the controller or the sound.

  @Crash and Coco Bandicoot: our heroes. In crate crush they will be able 
to move while kicking crates but they will walk really slow while picking

slow, but it will bounce a lot before disappearing.

Adventure walkthrough
     WARP ROOM 1
   Crash ball
     Be careful when a ball is going too fast, if the opponents send you 
2 or 3 ball at the same time, use the L1 and R1 buttons.

   GEM Same as above, the only difference is that you have less balls so 
be careful.

   CRYSTAL No more extra kick. This will be pretty difficult because the 
extra kick also gives you more hit range.

   Ok, next we panic- polar panic that is

   Polar panic
     Practice this level because the other 3 are more difficult, take 
advantage of the protection and the prizes that the beam gives you.

   GEM Knock off the others quickly, there is no time for lightnings or 
   CRYSTAL The thunderbolt will follow you so be careful. Your best bet 
in here is to get lightnings or weights,

   Do you have any paint??? I'll need it for the pogo painter level, 
which is the next.

   Pogo painter
     Try to get all the speedy boots, they will be a lot of help and try 
to get all the arrows too.

   GEM More points to score, take advantage of the arrows and the speedy 

   CRYSTAL This is an annoying challenge. The mushrooms will like to 
appear right in front of you and when you have the speedy boots you cant 
stay in the same place so be careful.

   Any cake left??? We can use a jungle bash party right now.

   Jungle bash
     If your not good kicking or throwing boxes try to stay with the most 
energy, and remember, the TNT crates cause more damage.

   GEM Now you will have to eliminate the others and you are against the 
time, you won't win by having the most health so use the TNT crates.

   CRYSTAL The idol will throw nitro crates, what you can do in here is 
to get close to an opponent and when the idol throws a crate, run like 
the wind.

   Papu pummel          Need: 4 trophies.
     It's time to fight Papu Papu. It's the same as jungle bash level. 
You have to jump the spinning squares and bash the Crash clones. Then, 
grab a box when the fire ring is down and throw it at Papu Papu. After 
that get away of the crates because Papu Papu will make them explode. 
Repeat the process 3 times, and when he slams the ground the 3rd time, a 
piece of the idol will crush him, and you win.

     WARP ROOM 2
   Beach ball
     Watch out when the character in front of you attracts a lot of balls 
and use the L1 and R1 buttons as well.

   GEM this one is pretty easy, just defend your goal with the odds 
against you.

   CRYSTAL now this one is hard. Your opponents will have intermittent 
shields and the shield will switch from one opponent to another.

   Tilt panic
     Watch out for the walrus, it will move the platform a lot.

   GEM Be quick knocking off your opponents.
   CRYSTAL The storm will move the platform a lot so be careful. Be sure 
to bump your opponents or you will easily fall.

     Try to encircle areas taking advantage of the edges of your color.

   GEM Grab a lot of boots and arrows if you want to win. My technique is 
to just encircle areas on the edge of your color.

   CRYSTAL Grab the speedy boots and encircle the biggest area that you 
can, use the arrows too.

   Space bash
     Watch out for the holes, if you touch a nitro crate, you will surely 
fall. Try to kick the explosive crates to your opponents because there is 
a chance that the explosion will make a hole right under your opponents.

   GEM Use the same technique.

   CRYSTAL You wont be able of picking up the crates and there are only 
explosive crates so be prepare prepared for a lot of holes.

   Desert fox
     The mines will do a lot of damage, take advantage of them.

   GEM Eliminate your opponents quickly, try to hit them with the mines.

   CRYSTAL The water perils will do a lot of damage, but they will damage 
your opponents too.

   Bearminator          Need: 9 trophies, 6 gems and 3 crystals. 
     This one is like polar push. Bearminator will send a bear with a 
missile, you can't bump the bear while he has the missile, just move a 
lot so the missile won't hit you, if it does, you will cannot move and 
the bear will knock you off, after he launches the missile, the bear will 
start moving so knock him off quickly. After that you will receive a 
missile, hit Bearminator and he will launch a bomb that will destroy a 
part of the platform and then he will send 2 robots knock them off and 
you will receive a missile, hit Bearminator and he will destroy another 
part of the stage, then he will send 3 robots, knock them off, hit 
Bearminator with the missile and you will win.

     WARP ROOM 3

   N. Ballism
     This game is pretty hard because if N. Gin, try to grab all the 
force fields that appear on your corners.

   GEM If you make good use of the R1 and L1 buttons it shouldn't be that 

   CRYSTAL N. Gin will only attack your goal so this one is really hard. 
Try to get the force field.

   Melt panic
     Watch out for Uka Uka, he can stand right over your character and 
turn you into a snowball or a ice statue.
