I heard about this new upcoming level for a while, and I wanted to try it out.
I really wish they'll make more levels like this in the future, this was a really fun challenge with all these secret paths. I actually had to look up at a video to realize where the box switch was, because it's very well hidden.
The death path wasn't too bad, especially if compared to some of the later Crash 2 ones. I also believe this is the longest level yet. FYI I recorded a whole playthrough of all the trilogy with all Platinums and none of the levels exceeded 7 minutes in lenght.
And yes, I got the Platinum relic after an hour of attempts, but that's for later.
