Mastered (platinado)! I really enjoyed playing this set since it features achievements related to other Crash games: Crash 1 "getting all boxes without dying" and Warped "time trials".

Mastered. The Darkness achievement for "Totally Fly" was the biggest waste of time with no fun factor for it whatsoever. I had to cheat my way through by using the wonky collision boxes on the edge of the map to make my way through the level. That achievement was absolutely disgusting.

Well, it could be worse. Imagine if you was supposed to do these total darkness cheevos deathless (no checkpoints)? lol

WARNING. If you use emulator's overclock to increase FPS - the in-game timer will run faster, making some time attack achievements really-really hard.
