Translation of Aku Aku Hints in the Japanese Version

  • There are monitors showing Cortex's face. Notice that you can jump and step on them. You'll have the good feeling that you're stomping on Cortex.


  • This level was the second successful level made for the game during it's development. The first being Heavy Machinery.
  • Pinstripe Potoroo leaves a message on the final door in this stage, claiming to be the CEO of Cortex Power. It is never explained in-game. On the final door, Pinstripe's full name is spelled "Pinstripelli Potorotti".
  • At the start of the level and on some other parts of the level, Cortex's face is on what appears to be a TV screen. On these screens, there is no "N" on his forehead. It's a common mistake to think that touching a Cortex Screen will electrocute Crash. In fact, Crash only gets electrocuted if he steps on either an exposed wire segment of a Cortex Screen, however, only a few Cortex Screens have a long enough wire segment for Crash to step on; or a generator, however, this can only be done intentionally, and if the generators weren't there, Crash would simply fall to death.
  • In the prototype, the hologram probes appear as floating orbs instead, like in Heavy Machinery. They will still harm Crash if he touches them.
