Wizards And Lizards
This is the first chase level in Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex.
There is a leftover debug feature in the original PlayStation 2 version of the game that allows Crash to easily obtain this level's platinum relic. The way this is performed is by pressing the Select button during the time trial. This warps Crash very close to the level's end.
 The player can activate the Nitro Switch Crate before entering the death route to make it easier.
In the bonus, shortly after the three crates of nitros, there is an iron arrow crate, two single crates and an iron crate at the top. In the late NTSC and PAL versions, this iron crate has been replaced by a life crate, in height and bringing the number of crates to be destroyed to 23, for a total of 129 on the level.
