Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy remastered the first three Crash Bandicoot games onto one next-gen disc. It was a complete remake, though, so the cheat codes upon which we once relied are a thing of the past. Yes, Crash Banidcoot N. Sane Trilogy joined almost every other modern game by not having cheat codes. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy cheats, though, meaning ways to cheat the game, still exist. Below, we go over the easiest way to get infinite lives.
Once you beat Native Fortress, believed by many to be one of the game’s hardest level (here is an easy way to beat it), the fun’s not over yet. You’ll then have to beat some even more difficult levels, which will likely deplete your lives faster than you can wildly spin in a circle. But, beating Native Fortress also unlocks the easiest way to get infinite lives. It comes down to Time Trials. During a time trial, you cannot lose lives. Because of this, though, the game makes every box that would be in the level either empty or filled with something else besides Wampa Fruit, because it knows that once you get 100 Wampa Fruit, you get a new life.
But Native Fortress has something most levels don’t: a health supply of Wampa Fruit right next to the time trial clock (as you can see in the header image). All you need to do is grab all the Wampa Fruit in those boxes, then grab the clock. This will initiate the time trial, making you not lose lives, but allowing you to keep the Wampa Fruit you already grabbed. Simply, grab the Wampa Fruit, Grab the clock, then jump up the two boxes and die to the turtle.
This will spawn you back at the beginning, where you can rinse and repeat. After the initial death, the question mark box will be filled with a bunch of Wampa Fruit, increasing the total fruit you gain at a time to 20 (or 21, depending on the RNG of the question box). Through our testing, this method allows you to farm up an extra life every 1 to 1.5 minutes, with no additional loading times.
