    The progress keeps rolling! A 2D fangame of Crash Bandicoot series, inspired by the original Playstation 1 Crash games while gameplay-wise closer to the Gameboy Crash games. While not as pretty as the first demo, this one is all about showing new gameplay elements, testing how things work, and just overall seeing how the game runs. Coco, the new playable character with her mini-kart sidescroller levels, is playble for the first time in this demo! The (test) levels here will be scrapped after this demo. Please enjoy the demo! And please let us know of any glitches or bugs!

    Before public release:

    -Fixed Aku Aku placement issues
    -Added PS4 controller support (geez finally, lemme know if it works)
    -Made Game Over screen a tad prettier, still WIP though

    During SAGE, v1.01
    -Fixed Game Over earrape problem
    -Xbox controllers shooould work properly now, hit Start in a stage if it doesn't

    - Jumping is important! Jump at the peak of the ramps to gain more height!
    - When TNT hits you, jump multiple times to get it off you!
    - You don't need to spin every crate type, only the locked crates

    Do the crates and how they work confuse you? Check out this

    Also on Deviantart!

    Note: not all of these crates are used in the demo!

    "A fucking blast!"
    For the first non-sonic related SAGE game i've played, it's really fun (if you couldn't tell lmao). The sprite work is very smooth, expressive and it's just beautiful! The game is really good-looking, especially the third stage. Crash plays pretty well and the level design for his levels is also pretty good. Coco's stages aren't as good, but they're still really fun. (What I mean by not as good is mostly stuff like the Big TNT, which first-timers will most likely be confused by, thus costing them a few lives. Also I died because when landing Coco would suddenly go backwards, despite me holding right. It doesn't mean she's not good, it's just that she needs some improvement.) The music is really good, too. Overall, for a demo (and a non-sonic related game at SAGE) this is pretty good. Keep up the good work!
    Edit: sorry i'm an ignorant piece of shit and didn't read the crate guide at all. At this point my only issue with the Coco stages is the reverse glitch.

    "An Absolute Blast"
    I never got to play any crash games until about 8 months ago when I found a ps1 for 3 bucks at a Goodwill and absolutely loved them. I then saw the first demo played on OneyPlays and wanted to give them a shot and I must say I love it, The game captures that style of, "it just feels good to move" kinda gameplay with a lot of room for player skill with the movement system to be shown off. I love the sprites they're very fun and bouncy, it fits the crash style really well. Huge props to the dev I wish you could get the same treatment as the dudes who got to make Sonic mania but seeing as how Crash is owned by Activision, thats sadly not likely to happen. But keep up the great work! :D

    "Demo 2 - awesome"
    The second demo game was cool, I went through all the levels and collected almost all the crystals, and the last secret level was very difficult to pass on time. Animations, gameplay and abilities are awesome. Waiting for the third part of the demo or have a full game, I hope that it will also be a hundred times steeper.

    P.S. Old life / crash's avatar was better.

    dunno why this is here, but it looks cool

      It's here because SAGE allows (and has pretty much always allowed) non-Sonic fangames.
