Slick Anthology

A video game collection in blog form… a constant work in progress

Crash Bandicoot

Crash Bandicoot Cover

System: PS1

Genre: Platformer

Release: 8/31/96

Completed: Partially

The PlayStation’s mascot also happens to star in one of the PlayStation’s greatest series’. Crash Bandicoot was a breath of fresh air in the platforming genre. Instead of side scrolling like Mario and SonicCrash was a 3D platformer that had Crash running towards or away from the screen, avoiding pits, jumping to collect boxes and apples, and evading enemies. Kind of like how older Mario games are timeless, so to is Crash. It’s still fun to pick up a controller and run through a few levels. Since Naughty Dog left Crash in the hands of other studios the character hasn’t been the same, but these old games are still excellent.

Buy this game from Amazon.
