    Welcome, this guide will showcase how to earn each gem in Crash Bandicoot 1 level by level rather than all of them in a single video. The Ultimate Gem Path is earned by collecting all 20 Clear Gems which are unlocked by collecting every box in the level (Including Bonus Levels) and 6 Colour Gems which are unlocked by collecting every box in the level without dying (except for bonus levels). Below I have added some important notes that should clear some things up for you.

    Notes
    - You can die in any bonus level without it voiding the Colour Gem.
    - You must complete all bonus levels by collecting the 3 character tokens in each level. Bonus level boxes count towards the final box count and there may be as many as 2 bonus levels in a single level.
    - TNT boxes do count towards the end total.
    - You need 2 keys to unlock secret levels. These can be found in the following guides.
    - I will be leveling them while excluding boss fights. I have uploaded individual boss guides for each of them in the respective achievement guides.

    The following guides will show you a full walkthrough of each level with the gems specific to the level if it has one. I will list it as a REQUIREMENT if the level needs it and will point you to the level it can be unlocked at. Any questions, please ask!
