Croc!

Recommended Posts

When I was a young boy, I received as a birthday present the original Playstation, and with it one game. This game was called Croc: Legend of the Gobbos. That game shaped my now love of all things video games. A platformer with some unique character design, fun levels, and a great soundtrack.

Note: When I say "great soundtrack," I mean seriously great soundtrack. I highly encourage anybody to go look it up. I was considering asking someone to ReMix it here (or giving it a shot myself), but the original is so great it's hard for me to think about how one might make a unique ReMix out of it.

I have to know - has anybody else heard of this game? Or am I just spouting off nonsense here?

I borrowed the original from a friend when I was a teenager. Finished it within a week. Simple for what it is, but it definitely has its charm - its

definitely managed to earworm itself into my head since then, and makes it feel really approachable to cover.

The question is, how am I supposed to figure out where to go while keeping the whimsical charm of the original? If a tune's to be given proper respect, it's through the heart, I believe xD

Oh Croc, you were actually pretty good, as far as 3D platformers go. It was how I was introduced to the Playstation, as well, so I completely understand youd nostalgia, man.

I ADORED Croc legend of the gobbo's

but my GOD the game is so damn long i never officially completed it.

it does have a great soundtrack such as the main

the

All the characters are god damn ADORABLE.

caddicarus sums up my feelings here:

if any of you have young children i would highly recommend this game as a introduction to the platforming genre, yes it can be tricky later on but for the fun you have from this game it is definitively worth playing.

I remember this game, but I didn't play it. My dad was clueless when buying games for my sister and I so this is one of the things he bought me. I was 17 and an arrogant snob when it came to my playstation, so I wanted to play hardcore games like Street Fighter Alpha 2 instead of a game I thought was for little kids. My sister played it a bunch. I don't know if she beat it or not but it looked pretty darn easy.

Definitely loved that game... even the instruction manual was dripping with charm and humor! The game was easy to beat, but extremely difficult to 100% (at least back then). That damn black couldron and left/right buttons... The Dungeon of Defright... *shudder*
