Crash Dash is the fifth level of Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and its N. Sane Trilogy remake. It is the first chase sequence level in the game. The objective is to outrun giant snowballs while avoiding electric land mines, which slow Crash down if he runs into them. Other hazards include electric fences and pits. If Crash repeatedly dies on a particular section of the level, then the boulder will slow down for that section. This is part of the game's Dynamic Difficulty Adjustment system. As with the other chase levels in this game, Aku Aku is banned from this level.
