Welcome to Bandipedia!



Tomb Time is the ninth level of the game and the fourth level of the second warp room in Crash Bandicoot: Warped and its remake in the N. Sane Trilogy.


Crash is warped back to Ancient Egypt in this level. This level introduces players to common elements in the Egyptian levels such as slippery oil-covered floors and switches that open doors.

There is a secret path that is normally accessed with the purple gem. It allows the player to get all boxes in the level and contains a secret clear gem. However, the path can be accessed without the purple gem by long-jumping left from the middle of the stretch before the stairs to the end of the level, and then long-jumping across the platforms.

A exploit of the games mechanics can be performed in this level to earn extra lives. If Crash breaks the crates at the start of the level and takes all the wumpa fruit from the boxes and then enters the time trial and restarts the trial immediately, the boxes will be restored with new wumpa fruit in them. This allows you to collect an endless amount of fruit, earning you lives for every 100 you collect.

Two extra lives can be also found on each side of the Cortex sphinx head at the start of the level using the bazooka. This earns the "The Riddle of the Sphinx" trophy in the N. Sane Trilogy. This can also be obtained early by glitch slide jumping the edge and belly flopping to reach the lives.

Translation of Aku Aku Hints in the Japanese Version[]

  • The bright spotlights are traps. Poisonous arrows will fly from the left. What will happen?
  • If you break all the boxes in a stage, you get a diamond. Head for perfect!
  • Have you played a time attack? Start by getting the yellow clock. You can get trophies.
  • If you get five trophies, go to the center of the Warp Room. The shocking fact will turn round.
  • The left door is opened with the purple diamond. Go to find it.

  • In the NTSC and N. Sane Trilogy versions of the level, there is a line of Wumpa Fruit after the first set of spotlights and an Aku Aku Crate in front of the Purple Gem door. They are respectively replaced with a Flame Thrower Lab Assistant and a ? Crate in the PAL version.
  • In the original version of Warped, the second set of spears in the gem path are unique as they extend and retract in three short waves rather than simultaneously. In the N. Sane Trilogy, however, these spears function simultaneously like the rest in the game do.
  • In N. Sane Trilogy, the dog bark sound effects that play in the opening of Crash Bandicoot and Cortex Strikes Back can be heard when the dog hieroglyphics in the wall is approached[1].
