He operates a submarine that has a machine gun to destroy obstacles on the bottom of the river. Crash receives many bonuses when enemies prevent him from being destroyed. A large dragon appears at the end of this period to bring danger to Crash. The next stage in Crash’s journey takes place in a forest. The first challenge is the huge monsters’ appearance. It pursues Crash for a long time until its energy is depleted. With the magic learned from Aku, he can travel on the dangerous terrain. Crash collects the first crystal as he heads to the end of the forest. The forest’s clues take Crash to a vast sea. His goal is to find an Australian navy warship to get the treasure, and a map that will lead to the next crystals’ location. Pirates and Cortex’s assistants constantly attack to destroy Crash. He balances the boat and moves at high speed to catch up to the military ship. Crash fights with the boat’s leader and steals the map. The final stage takes place at the cave on the island.
