Crash Bandicoot Purple: Ripto's Rampage is the much awaited crossover game between Spyro the Dragon and Crash Bandicoot. Shame it's basically just a bunch of mini games.

Unused Level

By altering a save file, it is possible to access an unused level, which seems to act as an empty hubworld for the Bonus World. There's no background for this level, so only magenta shows.

To access it, change the values starting at offset 8 to 00 00 00 05 in a save file for the US game.


Unused Text

Present at offset 0xx72194 is what appears to be text for old test levels. It's worth noting that the only jetpack Crash is seen with in this game is on a card.

Jetpack Test
Crash 2 Test Level: Tiki Torture

At offset 0xx6FF90 is an error message:

error no dialog

And more at offset 0xx70B48, also between text that's used in the game:

dialog Not specified
dialog Not Found

Hidden Credit

At the very end of the code is a reference to Team Baisoku, a team who are also credited on some other Vicarious Visions games.


Regional Differences

The credits use a completely different color in the Japanese version of the game. Larger text, such as "Vicarious Visions", has also been shrunk a little.
