Bee-Having is the twentieth level in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back. The level is located in Warp Room 4.


Bee-Having is a snowy jungle style level, with trees and old style temples surrounding. Considered the most annoying part in the level, Bees come out of their hives and attempt to sting Crash. Do not attempt to kill the bees, or Crash will lose health. Furthermore, the only place to hide is under the ground. In some areas of the level, there is some red-ish coloured dirt, that can be dug up by pressing the SQUARE button. Crash is not entirely immune to getting attacked though, becuase human assistants can hit the player with a hammer. There is a Bonus Round in the level. Bee-Having contains the following enemies that a player will face:


Like in every level, the regular Clear Gem is present. To obtain this gem, a player must collect every box in the level. Furthermore, Bee-Having contains the Purple Gem. Like when obtaining the Green Gem, actually finding the place required to obtain it is hard. At some part of the level, the player will come across stairs of Nitro. Climb up the stairs and it will take Crash to the area. Complete the area and at the end the Purple Gem will be waiting.


  • The title, "Bee-Having" is an obvious pun of the term, "Behaving".
