- Clear Gem - Destroy 24 crates.
One of two secret stages in Crash Bandicoot. You won't be able to begin it right away but fortunately, it won't take long before it gets unlocked (read more below).
The path leading to this stage was presented in the picture. You won't be able to use it immediately as this is a hidden level. In order to unlock it, you will need to collect a key from Sunset Vista (description on the next page). This is a part of Cortex's Crazed Contest achievement. The key is a reward for unlocking and completing the bonus round of Neo Cortex.
The stage is very similar to Hog Wild, and thus you will have to ride the creature (you won't stop on your way) and avoid obstacles such as poles, pits, barbeque and indigenes. This level is more difficult than Hog Wild due to wider variety of traps and jumps that need to be perfect (most of them will require you to bounce from drums - hold down the jump button when in mid-air). Remember that certain parts will make you run in a zigzag manner, as this is the only way to hit all crates.
