We love all manner of games at Pocket Tactics, but there’s something special about platformers. Perhaps that’s because we grew up with them. We especially love them when a certain marsupial is involved, which is why the deal this week is a winner in our eyes. Right now, on Amazon US, you can snag a copy of Crash 4: It’s About Time on Nintendo Switch for $26.99 – that’s a massive saving of 33%.
If you’re unfamiliar with Crash Bandicoot, we can’t help but ask one simple question – what’s wumping wrong with you? Don’t answer that. It doesn’t matter, if you missed all the crate smashing action from the past 26 years, now’s the time to see what you’ve been missing out on, with what’s arguably one of Crash’s finest outings.
As ever, Neo Cortex and N Tropy are at it again, except it’s not mere world domination they’re after. Heck, it’s not even an attack on a single universe. These eccentric geniuses have their sights set on the entire multiverse. But it’s okay, because Crash and Coco are ready for this. They’ve been kicking Cortex’s butt since the 1990s.
However, it’s not just the Bandicoot siblings you get to play as. That’s right. You also get to play as Tawna. You might be asking who she is. Well, she’s the lovely lady Crash saves in the original Crash Bandicoot. However, this version of her is quite different, and it’s nothing short of a pleasure to play as her.
Oh, not only that, but you get to play as Dingodile – he’s “not in the Bayou no more.” It’s great to play as one of the most underappreciated villains of the entire franchise. Then, you get to experience what it’s like to be Neo Cortex. There really is a method to his madness – who knew.
Crash Bandicoot 4 is full to the brim with beautiful levels, satisfying platforming, and frankly, it’s about time you play it. If you’re still not convinced, you can check out the official trailer here.
