I know we're always ragging on the layout of the lairs of villains in platform games, but just imagine the instructions given to Neo Cortex's interior decorator:
"I'd like a big rug with an N on it in the hallway... then just a big hole for no reason. And I don't mean some kind of hatch to the basement-- I mean literally pull up the floorboards and leave a gaping deathtrap in my castle's hallway. Oh, and line the corridor with inaccessible doors-- and don't forget the dining chairs so I can sit there and dangle my feet over these completely necessary voids in my castle floor."

Crash Bandicoot is a platform video game developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation. It was originally released for the PlayStation in September 1996, and was included in the Sony Greatest Hits line-up. In 2007, it was re-released as a downloadable game on the PlayStation Network. A remastered version will be included in the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy collection, scheduled for release on the PlayStation 4 in 2017.
Crash Bandicoot is the first installment in the Crash Bandicoot series, chronicling the creation of the title character at the hands of the series antagonist Doctor Neo Cortex and his henchman Doctor Nitrus Brio. The game's story follows Crash's effort to stop Brio and Cortex's plans for world domination, and to save his girlfriend Tawna, a female bandicoot also evolved by Brio and Cortex.
Crash Bandicoot received generally positive reviews from critics, who praised the game's graphics and unique visual style, but criticized its controls and noted the game's lack of innovation as a platform game. The game would later go on to become one of the best-selling video games for the console.
Crash Bandicoot is a platform game in which players control the titular character, Crash, as he traverses several levels in sequence in order to progress. Crash is able to defeat enemies by either jumping on them or using a spinning attack that launches them. Crash will lose a life if he is hit by an enemy or obstacle, or falls into a bottomless pit. Crash can protect himself by collecting Aku Aku masks, which protect Crash from a single hit from an enemy or obstacle (but not pits or other instant-death obstacles). Crash can hold onto two masks at a time and, upon collecting a third mask, will gain temporary invincibility. The game ends when the player runs out of lives, with more lives earned by finding extra life items or by collecting 100 Wumpa Fruit.
Crash Bandicoot received generally favorable reviews from critics, with much of the positive comments going to the graphics. Dave Halverson of GameFan referred to the visuals as "the best graphics that exist in a game" and the design and animations of the title character as "100% perfection".
The gameplay received mixed responses. Both John Scalzo and the Game Revolution reviewer compared the gameplay to Donkey Kong Country, with Scalzo describing the game as having a "familiar, yet unique" quality that he attributed to Naughty Dog's design, while the Game Revolution reviewer concluded that the game "fails to achieve anything really new or revolutionary" as a platform game. The IGN reviewer said that the game "isn't a revolution in platform game design. It's pretty much your standard platform game". However, he noted the game's "surprisingly deep" depth of field and use of different perspectives as exceptions to the platforming formula. Jim Sterling of Destructoid.com stated that the game has aged poorly since its initial release and cited the lack of DualShock thumbsticks, a poor camera as well as substandard jumping and spinning controls.
As of November 2003, Crash Bandicoot has sold over 6.8 million units worldwide, making it one of the best selling PlayStation video games of all time.
