The Tumbling Dantini is the fifth level on Forest Island in Croc: Legend of the Gobbos. As with all normal levels, there are 6 Gobbos to collect.
The middle crystal on the far side of the crate is actually the RED CRYSTAL. Jump up to the crate to find a Gold Key on top, then smash it to free GOBBO #1. Run past the Burrowing Worm, and climb up the wall on either side of the door to find a crate containing the GREEN CRYSTAL and another door. Enter the top door and stand on the middle of the Red Bricks inside until they crumble. This lands you on top of a high crate, in which you can smash open to reveal GOBBO #2. Go out the door, climb back up top, and go through the upper door again, but this time cross the Red Bricks all the way. Jump over the Lava Pits between bouts of bouncing Fireballs. Jump onto the Driving Platform and go to either side crate. Stand on the crate and tail slap the Bat Dantini as he goes by. Smash the crates to find the BLUE CRYSTAL and GOBBO #3 Go through the door to enter the next area. Collect the crystals in the middle of the Burrowing Worm's path. The middle one is the YELLOW CRYSTAL in disguise. Unlock the door up here and head on inside. The left crate on the other side of the door holds the final, PURPLE CRYSTAL. Use the Driving Platform to cross the Lava Pit. It's easiest to just avoid the Bat Dantinis by dodging left and right. Pick up GOBBO #4 at the far end and cross back. Go back out the door you came in from. Ride the Balloon down to the ground, and jump over to GOBBO #5 and back. Enter the Crystal Door. To get all of the crates, start at one end, and do a light stomp on each (i.e. don't hold down the jump button after the second press), and hold forward as Croc is stomping. This will make him move onto the next crate as he's in the air after breaking open a crate. Don't hold forward too much, though, or he'll walk past the next crate; this is only a bad thing when it comes to the last crate, which contains GOBBO # 6, because you can walk right past its far edge and not be able to crack it open. Collect all the crystals when you reach the ground.
