Crash Bandicoot is a platform game in which the player takes control of Crash, who must navigate 32 levels in order to defeat Doctor Neo Cortex and save Tawna. The majority of the game is played in third-person, with Crash moving about on the screen. Certain stages, such as those in which he must run from a moving rock, are played from the perspective of a standard side-scrolling game, while others are played from the perspective of a traditional side-scrolling game. Crash may travel in any direction; aside from left and right, he can move away from or toward the player, and the controls remain same as he moves. Jumping on adversaries and launching a spinning move that throws enemies off the screen are his two basic modes of offense. Kicked foes have the ability to hit other adversaries currently on-screen. Crash must saddle and drive a wild pig that is accelerating rapidly through two levels, requiring him to maneuver past obstacles and avoid opponents.
