Crash Team Rumble Gameplay

Crash Team Rumble is a 4v4 multiplayer online battle arena type that uses iconic Crash Bandicoot characters against one another in a competition to collect the most Wumpa fruit and deposit it in their areas, while also preventing the opposing team from doing the same. There are a lot of scoring games that are already familiar to play so adapting to its gameplay is easy enough. Each character, whether good or bad, has unique skills and abilities that will help control the match, claim some Wumpa fruit, and protect their team's stash.
