This is a brand new segment where we remind you guys of classic games you may have forgotten, and games we wish we could either have a remake, be brought back to life as an arcade game or be given a sequel. At the end of the article, I will tell you guys what I believe should be done with the game.
As a kid, Croc would keep me entertained for hours on end. The games, themselves, had mixed response from critics, but for kids all around the world, it brought many smiles. The game only recieved just 1 sequel, possibly due to the mixed reception of the second game (so the game didn’t last as long as Spyro did).
Look at that little furry creature. Awww!
Released back in 1997, Croc was about a small baby crocodile, obviously named Croc, who was found in a basket by King Rufus, who was king of the Gobbo’s (the little small fluffy creatures). He raised Croc as his own, and as things were peaceful for so many years, it wasn’t long before evil fell. Baron Dante arrived on Gobbo Island and imprisoned many of the Gobbo’s, including the king. Before the king was captured, he managed to help Croc escape by summoning Beany, a yellow bird who helped Croc shrink and escape. It’s not long before it’s up to Croc to help free the Gobbo’s and defeat Dante.
As you progressed through the game, you collected Gobbo’s and shiny crystals, which looked similar to the ones you see in Sonic the Hedgehog. When you reached 100 crytals at the end of a level, you earned a new life. In order to complete a level, you had to hit the gong. Each level came complete with bosses which would be tough for kids, but would be easy for people of this generation.
Honestly, I don’t think Croc should get a new sequel, because amazing memories having juice squeezed out is just sad. I would love to see a re-release as an arcade game. It was a big game, and lasted for hours, and the graphics for a game released in 1997 were just amazing. Croc gave you bundles of laughs and just brings back so many memories for me.
Croc was released on Windows, Playstation (PS1), Gameboy Colour and Saturn back in 1997.
