Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back Walkthrough

To get 100% on Crash Bandicoot 2 you need to finish all levels and collect all Gems.

Every level has at least 1 White Gem to unlock (Other than Boss Levels). There are more ways to aquire White Gems than in the first Crash Bandicoot game. There are the usual 'destroy all boxes' Gems on every level plus some bonus Gems for clearing Death Routes and Coloured Gem paths. Coloured Gems require extra challenges.

Crash Bandicoot 2 is made up of 5 warp rooms, each containing 5 Levels plus a boss.
