Welcome to a sister article to In The Games Corner that is about computer games but with a different spin. I have been playing computer games from a very young age and I find that some games when I think of them are attached to very strong memories. So, I thought it would be fun to share memories that I have attached to some of these games as there are a few. I wanted to call this feature Memory Card because a lot of my memories that i have strongly are around the Playstation 1 and there will be a few around that particular card. This month we are going to take a bit of a festive twist on the article and look at Christmas themed games. Today we take a look at Crash Bandicoot Cortex Strikes Back
Ok, so i know that today’s game is ‘technically’ not a Christmas game – however there is one level that I love and to me really highlights the fun of snow in computer games and that is why i decided to include it as to me it feels very festive.
There is one level that I absolutely love in Crash Bandicoot 2 and that is the levels with the polar bear. In these levels you have to ride a baby polar bear through the snow without crashing to get to the end of the level. It is one of those levels that is fast paced and really exciting to play. Throughout the level you have to try and avoid everything from killer whales, seals and TNT. As a kid I spent ages on this level doing everything from collecting all the boxes, to finding the secret levels.
However, it was not the only snow based level in the games there are these platform levels where you have to travel through ice caves to get to the end and avoid the enemies. They are really fun and are quite silly at times which makes it really fun to play. Also, when you get to the higher levels there are levels where you have to avoid the mother polar bear as she is very angry with you for riding her son!
