Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back - Alpha Version


Screenshots of an alpha version have been found in an old issue of Next Generation magazine. They were taken from the earliest build currently known.

Warp Room

Just about everything is different in this old Warp Room. Most notably, the Cortex hologram appears from the center in a straight angle, rather than being projected by the flying camera bot. There is no lift in the middle of the room and both the surroundings and the crystal/gems display above each level is different too.

Snow Go

The level Snow Go (and probably other snow levels, by extension) featured a considerably different color scheme, and it looks like the snow fall effect wasn't there from the start. The first screenshot shows a cut section of Snow Go, while the second one shows the exit.


Sewer or Later

Sewer or Later

(contributed by Guy)

This screenshot shows the area where you usually get the crystal from in Sewer or Later, but the object placement is quite different.
