The Cutting Room Floor research
  • The music is completely absent from this build, though data for some tracks can be found in the game files.
  • The level-completion screen is absent. The game simply sends the player back to the map.
  • There are no gems in this build, and as such there are no gem paths.
  • Press R1 + L1 in the main menu to unlock all levels.
  • Pressing R1 + L1 in-game makes Crash invincible to all dangers, except for pits and water/acid.
