The Crash Bandicoot series started on the PlayStation back in 1997, and Mind over Mutant is the 15th game in the series. Like recent Crash outings, this is a 3D platform adventure in which you control the lovable Bandicoot as he tries once again to save the world from disaster. But unlike previous games that have been level based, Mind over Mutant is a more free roaming affair, where you have to complete mission to progress. This time, the evil Doctors Neo Cortex and Nitrus Brio have devised a device called the NV which is strangely similar to the iPhone. This NV takes over the brain of all who encounter it (again, strangely similar to the iPhone). Crash is the only one who is immune to the effects of this insidious device, and so it's up to him to wrest his friends from its fiendish control. Mind over Mutant features all the characters we know and love from Crash of the Titans including Aku Aku, Nina Cortex, The Ratnicians, and Crash's sister Coco Bandicoot. Crash explores Wumpa Island and the surrounding world, and as he does so he can interact with non playable characters who have an exclamation mark over their heads. When he talks to these characters, he gathers information which will help him in his quest. He'll also find items scattered around that help him complete his mission, such as running shoes to make him faster, or power ups to make his attacks more powerful. As Crash defeats opponents or breaks things "Mojo" is released and as Crash collects this, his powers are upgraded. Rather than defeating all of his opponents, Crash can take control of some opponents and use their strengths and abilities to help him with his objectives. A second player can join Crash at any time during the game for two-player fun, where your friend can control "Carbon Crash", another Bandicoot with white fur.
