Off-Balance is the eleventh level available in Crash Bandicoot 4. On this page, you will find information about all gems, chests, secret levels. It also contains a detailed walkthrough.
The adventure on this map must begin with an important information. Here you will find a secret tape that will unlock access to a retro level.
Remember, the only way to get the tape is if you haven't died even once. Additionally, you have to complete the map in order for the tape to be added to your inventory.
You can find the tape on one of the platforms, right after you get a mask. However, you must be careful of the fire that can burn you to a crisp at any time.

We'll start by learning the new mechanic. From this level on, Crash will be able to run on walls. Just jump on it, and the character will run on his own. He won't fall off unless something gets in his way.
The next step requires certain proficiency in the new mechanic. You have to jump across three walls to get to the next part of the map.
The next step is to climb to the top. Focus, find the right moment and jump to the top.
On the second part of the map you'll get a mask. It will enable you to perform long jumps that will enable you to move on.
On the way watch out for the fire. If you get hit, you could burn in seconds.
The farther we go, the harder it gets. In addition to avoiding fire, you also have to pay attention to your opponents. Remember, if you're using a mask, there's no way they're going to kill you. However, they will repel you so that you fall into the abyss.
In the next part of the map, you'll encounter fire traps. You have to wait for the moments when they're not burning to be able to proceed.
Next, you need to run across a crumbling bridge and then quickly jump onto the walls.
The penultimate step of this level may seem difficult, but it is not. Take a mask and just focus on the task. Remember to always jump in front of the wall first, only then use the mask, and then activate it when you're on the other side. That way you can get to your destination.
Another important thing, don't hesitate to hit the boxes, don't wait for your character to run into them. When you get close to them, attack immediately. This way, Crash will stay on the wall and continue to run.
The last straight is a piece of cake compared to the rest of the level. Just use the mask, pick up speed and jump to the other side of the map.
The hidden gem will be found in a special location where there are no other items. Just last until the end to get your item.
You'll find a way to the secret level in front of the bridge, moments after you had to make the long jump.
On this bonus level you can get 27 boxes. You have to be careful with TNT boxes and stand in safe spots.
Remember, you don't lose lives on bonus levels!
