Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy for PS4, PC and etc. is a bundle of three classic platformers of Naughty Dog’s team. It includes the first Crash Bandicoot, Cortex Strikes Back and Warped, all of which were remastered by Vicarious Visions studio, known from titles like Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2, Skylanders Superchargers and a few other projects.

New versions of Crash’s first adventures were completely remade. Developers did not simply overhaul its visuals, but created most of the content from scratch. This means redesigned levels, new textures and special effects, as well as characters’ models. Cutscenes were also modified, though they are still inspired by original versions.

However, Vicarious Visions did not stop there and added a new save system, letting players save manually or through autosave. Additionally, all games received Time Trial mode that originally debuted in Warped.

Plot

The story of all games that make Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is rather simplistic, with players taking control of Crash, a titular bandicoot. He must face evil doctor Cortex and stop his plans of world domination.

Game mechanics

Three games included in Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy for PS4, PC and etc. are three-dimensional platformers. Crash can use a variety of moves, including jumping and spinning, and those are used to traverse levels filled with traps like giant boulders rolling towards us. Wumpa fruits – an iconic element of the series – are also present. They can be collected on every stage and give us additional life after we collect hundred of them. Another thing we can find are boxes that we can destroy to obtain Wumpa fruits, lives or Aku Aku masks that help Crash in his adventure. Though one should be careful to not hit any form of explosives.
