Crash Bandicoot Purple: Ripto's Rampage
|Crash Bandicoot Purple: Ripto's Rampage|
Also known as: Crash Bandicoot Fusion (EU), Crash Bandicoot Advance (JP)
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.
By altering a save file or the level order in the ROM it is possible to access an unused level titled "Crash 2 Test Level : Tiki Torture". There's no background for this level, so only magenta shows. The level has a single other object besides Crash, that being a wumpa fruit spawned outside of the map.
To access it, change the values starting at offset 8 to 00 00 00 05 in a save file for the US game.
Present at offset 0xx72194 is the name for an unused test level.
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
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.
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.
