Gameplay[]

The gameplay is more of a merge of Crash's previous Game Boy titles with Crash of the Titans jacking ability. Crash is given the ability to punch, jump, double jump, drop attack and jack. Crash also features a health bar, if it drains, Crash dies. His health bar is refilled by collecting Wumpa Fruit. There are also no lives in this version.

The game itself features linear 2D gameplay where the focus is to break crates while jacking Titans. There are many new types of crates, along with the original Crash Bandicoot's, such as, the usual TNT, Nitro and ! crates. The inclusion of more crates helps separate it from it's other releases. The level is finished when the player reaches a signpost.

The Titans can be jacked after a certain amount of damage, they are then controllable by the player, each having unique gameplay per Titan, once defeated, Crash is knocked off and the Titan seizes existence. Crash is also given the ability to get off one at will, which he can use to advantage when knocking out a stronger Titan. There is also hidden collectable masks throughout each level, which are found scattered in large quantity. Power Crystals are also featured in this version, unlike the console, where they can be found in levels.

Crash is also able to climb horizontally and vertically using ropes, which can be found during levels in random places. The bosses are usually simple, to attack the character and then take control of them, such as Dingodile, N. Gin or the Spiderbot. There can also be midway interruptions due to the story and tutorials.
