Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Crash: Mind over Mutant is open world in which the player controls Crash Bandicoot, whose main objective is to explore his home, Wumpa Island, and surrounding environments to uncover the mystery behind the "NV", a personal digital assistant created by the main antagonist. Crash: Mind over Mutant is a mission-based game as opposed to Crash of the Titans' level-based structure, with goals being given by non-playable characters. Characters with exclamation points (!) over their heads, when talked to, give out important information that is needed to continue the story. Placed around Wumpa Island are special items that empower Crash in different ways. Crash can perform powerful attacks. He can also block, dodge, or break an enemy's block. When he defeats enemies or destroys objects, a magical substance known as Mojo is released, when collected, allows Crash's abilities to be upgraded.
