- Level description

Rolling Stones (えんばんいわの はて lit. The End of the Disk Rocks in Japanese) is the seventh level of the first island in Crash Bandicoot (including boss fights). It is the first level to feature a Nitrus Brio bonus round. The level is similar in form to Jungle Rollers, following a straight path through the jungle.

Level design

This level is set in the remote jungle of N. Sanity Island and has exactly the same type of jungle environment as Jungle Rollers, as it is essentially the slightly more difficult version of Jungle Rollers. As the name suggests, it contains a lot more of the rolling stone obstacles than the Jungle Rollers level.


To get the gem in this level, Crash first needs to get the blue gem from Toxic Waste which will give the player access to an underground tunnel which contains six crates.

Translation of Aku Aku Hints in the Japanese Version

  • In some places of this stage , Brio's Mug are hidden. If you collect three, you can challenge the super hard bonus stage created by Brio. Go if you have confidence.
  • So, you can see diamonds on your way, which disappear if you approach. Those are secret paths opened up by color diamonds. Get one from Hog Dash.
    • Note that in the Japanese version, the Green Gem lies in the level Hog Wild.


  • For unknown reasons, Neo Cortex has carved his face at the end of an obscure tunnel in this stage, accessible only by using the blue gem.
  • The level's title is likely a reference to the rock band The Rolling Stones. It could also be a reference to the magazine Rolling Stone.
  • In the prototype, there is no blue gem. The pit that Crash acesses to get the hidden crates is just a normal pit.
  • In the prototype, the ending is very different from the final version. In the prototype version, there were two pillars in a row before a rolling stones set. Also, there was a falling pillar followed by a set of rolling stones followed by another falling pillar following another set of rolling stones followed by a pillar moving from side to side. It's likely that this was changed because it was considered too difficult for such an early stage of the game.
  • The first Doctor Nitrus Brio bonus round piece is found inside a  ounce crate, replacing the 10th wumpa fruit.  In the prototype version, this bounce crate was glitched, and disappeared when Crash got too close. There was no Brio bonus round either.
  • The first POW Crates are found in this level.
  • This level has more pits in the prototype version.
