/// Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy Dev Admits That It’s Harder to Land Jumps in the Remaster!
To start with, the developer first considered unifying the mechanics of all three games to match those of Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped. The team believed this would provide a more unified experience.
However, after testing, it became clear that each game needed to have its own jump mechanics tuned to its levels, in a way that more closely resembles the original designs.
“There are a few subtle differences in Crash Bandicoot, chief among these being the fact that you fall more quickly upon release of the X button than you did in the original first game,” the blog post read. This particular quirk was discovered by fans days after launch.
“If you are a new player, you may want to start with the second and third games first, and then come back to try Crash Bandicoot after you’ve had more practice,” the studio said, reiterating that the first game is the hardest.
