Crash Bandicoot is such a beloved gaming character that anything but a premier mobile adaptation would be a shame. Simply a shame. And while an auto-runner is hardly the most inventive use of the license, it does fit the brand incredibly well, and this game looks really good.

Crash Bandicoot Mobile is a brand new Crash Bandicoot experience from legendary mobile developer King, of Candy Crush fame. They've clearly pulled out all the stops on this game, and this is, both in terms of visuals and gameplay, a world away from the likes of Candy Crush and other match-3 puzzlers.

This game looks good, with levels that evoke the designs of the original PlayStation game. It has some F2P mobile mechanics, as you might expect, but it's incredibly easy to ignore those frustrations in the early game. Things only get complicated after you've made a decent amount of progress…

But that's exactly why you're here, right? In this guide we're going to run through some of the tips that Crash Bandicoot Mobile doesn't outright tell you, so you can make progress fast. This game is currently in Soft Launch, but you can find a .apk file if you know where to find one safely. For more, check out our list of Soft Launch games.
