Farmers down under, and scientists,

think I'm a menace.

And as for fruit, forget 5 a day,

100 a day will make you feel alive.

But don't worry, I'll be back soon.

Now excuse me, it's high time we get out

of this ghost town.

What am I?

Sorry about that drain damage, but it's crunch time!

You are

Crash Bandicoot

Farmers down under, and scientists, think I'm a menace.

The main antagonist of the game is a scientist, and bandicoots are Australian animals that can spread disease to livestock.

And as for fruit, forget 5 a day, 100 a day will make you feel alive.

In the game, collecting 100 Wumpa Fruits will award the player an extra life.

But don't worry, I'll be back soon.

Crash Bandicoot games will be remastered for PS4 next year.

Now excuse me, it's high time we get out of this ghost town.

"Ghost Town" is a level in the game.

Sorry about that drain damage, but it's crunch time!

Drain Damage is a boss level where you fight Crunch.
