Fucking platformers

56 posts in this topic

Anyone have any ideas on how to deal with the "Buttery Bandicoot" that is Crash? I constantly find myself touching the platform, landing on it and then just sliding off. It's getting really frustrating and i already broke a keyboard while playing Peasant Knight.

Honestly, it sounds like you are jumping too soon. If you are just touching the edge you will fall off. You might be better off playing some Crash 2 and 3 since those are easier games. Then when you come back to 1, it won't seem as hard.

You too, huh? I just started this a couple of days ago. I'm not even that far along, and already encountered this. You'll get used to the timing over time, but it's not very intuitive.

I don't know if i even want to start those games too tho, because then instead of 1 incomplete game, i'll have three. Maybe on a blank account that i can just delete or merge with my main when platinumed.

Yeah, i thought i was going to have a blast when playing this, but i really am just wanting to start playing Hitman 2 on my pc. Haha

All I can say really is that you just get used to it. Like any platformer you just slowly become familiar with how the controls and character feels. Just stay calm and practice. The Crash remake is an annoying game but it gets more manageable. 

I'll give it some more tries, i guess. Even after getting the first time trail done, i was already thinking, "There's another 25 of these?" So i don't know, maybe platformers aren't just for me. I already gave up on League of Evil.

It's different to the original games on PS1. Problem seems to be the “pill shape“ of Crash in the modern version (which also makes the infamous suspension bridge levels harder than they used to be):

There's an interesting aspect mentioned in the article that you can use this to your advantage if you learn how to handle it.

That's an option, but in all reality, Crash 2 and 3 are pretty easy. The only hard part will be getting the relic times. They just take practice. Crash 1 is much harder than the others.

You didn't back up your save to the cloud?

No, because i don't expect it to just vanish. Same happened to my Spyro 2 save file. Guess the Activision remasters just don't really like me?

I don't know, it just dissapeared. Maybe something with the console, idk havent noticed anything in any other game. Both of the games this happened (Crash 1 & Spyro 2) we're made by the same dev. But i don't think it has anything to do with it. Eitherway, just upload your save to the cloud and if it does dissapear, just download it.

I don't think they were, though. Spyro 2 was by Toys for Bob. Crash was by someone else (Vicarious Visions, I think?).

Yes true, but i think Activision published both. Sorry for the confusion.

True. And any time you can say, "Fuck you, Activision!", it's been a good day. :D

That is true :D They've almost become as terrible as EA & Bethesda now.

I lost all my progress once because I accidentally disabled the auto save when I was in the save menu (R1 I think). Is that what happened?

 

As for slipping off I held X for most of the jumps and kept an eye on my shadow on the next ledge to see where I’d land.

Nope, autosave is on. As for the tip, i'll keep it in mind.

Edit: My save was once again deleted. HMMMMMMMMMMMMM

I feel the exact same way, except i haven't made it to the second boss even. My save however has been reset twice.

Oh that better not happen to me! I'd drop this shit in a heartbeat. I got a shitload of sapphire relics maybe a few gold and 1 platinum. I have a bad feeling the sapphire isn't good enough.

You're right. You will need 26 gold (or platinum) relics for one of the trophies. If you are going for 100%, you can skip The High Road relic (or any other base game relic).

Never had much of a problem, myself, and I didn't play the Crash games on PS1 so I didn't have that nostalgia to guide me. 

Thought it was pretty fun. Now, doing some of the time trials was where it got a little mentally taxing at times. Especially Crash 1.
