Welcome to Bandipedia!



That Sinking Feeling is the ninth level and is the fourth level of the second warp room in Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex. Just like Tornado Alley in the previous chamber, it is via air. However, this time, it takes place in a island surrounded by a volcano and a fleet of ships. Here, Crash uses an unusual flying vehicle called the Firefly. It is the only time the firefly is used in the game.


  • Wait until the target locks. Don't quickly press X until the target is locked onto. Release the button to shoot missiles.
  • Some of the enemy planes are trying to smash Crash. Beware! They cause major damage.
  • Don't use the missiles for shooting planes. Instead, shoot the anti-air craft turrets.
  • When Crash's health drops, quickly shoot a health balloon.
  • Sometimes the regular balloons give lives.

  • Interestingly, the Crash Glider was originally going to be used in this level instead of the Firefly. It was actually a separate version of the glider coded with the same lock-on system as the Firefly. It can be found in the final version through hacking.
