Due to the fractured multiverse created by Neo Cortex and Dr. N. Tropy, Crash and the gang will be thrown all over the timeline. The levels in the game are divided into 10 Dimensions, each one occurring in their own time and place.
- N.Sanity Island (Present Day)
- The Hazardous Wastes (2084)
- Salty Wharf (1717)
- Tranquility Falls (1402)
- Mosquito Marsh (a few days ago)
- The 11th Dimension (1954)
- Eggipus Dimension (88 Million B.C.B.)
- Bermugula's Orbit (???)
- The Sn@xx Dimension (3032)
- Cortex Island (1996)
There are also four different level types that can be played within each Dimension.
- Main Path: These are the main levels that progress the overall story of Crash and his friends.
- Boss: Every two Dimensions, you will encounter a Boss fight level. You must defeat the Boss to continue progressing.
- Timeline: After completing some of the Main Path levels, you’ll unlock an alternate Timeline, side levels that are played with characters other than Crash or Coco.
- Flashback: Collect Flashback tapes on the Main Path levels to unlock Flashbacks, side levels played with the classic side-scroll perspective.
