Medieval Madness (イライラとりでの こうりゃく lit. Irritating Fortress Capture in Japanese) is the twenty-third level and is the third level of the fifth warp room in Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex. The level's theme is a castle and lab. Crash travels around the level via an atlasphere. The player needs to backtrack for some of the crates in this level.
The Xbox and GameCube versions had a couple of changes done to Medieval Madness: the 2 big platforms just after the treacherous wooden ramps were reduced to a single one, and the elevator after the wobbling platforms up ahead moves much slower.
Curiously its own track is the only one that loops correctly in the PlayStation 2 version.
It is possible to roll the atlasphere out of bounds and continue rolling it until the player reaches an area with "losing points" (the places where the ground is made hazardous to give the illusion of Crash losing by drowning in the water).
