Crash 4 hidden gems: where to find all the hidden gems in Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time

7 min read

There are a lot of Crash 4 gems to find, and in Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time these collectibles are slightly more hidden than previous games. Each level requires six gems to 100% it. While most are accomplished by collecting a certain amount of Wumpa fruit, or keeping the death count under three, the Crash 4 hidden gems require a different approach.
