The original Croc: Legend of the Gobbos is a lovely little 3D platformer on Saturn, PC, and PSone. Having started life as a 3D Yoshi game pitched to Nintendo (and turned down), this 3D Yoshi became a Yoshi-shaped crocodile instead and the rest is history. With a PSone, PC and ‘why doesn’t this Croc ever blink, ma?’ (and, indeed, 'where's Croc's head gone, ma?' if you loaded the game incorrectly) Sega Saturn version, Croc was a multiformat success, and went on to be Argonaut’s best-selling game. So, obviously, a sequel was needed.
But Croc 2 is something and nothing. It reviewed poorly and turned out to be the last Croc game in the short-lived history of Croc games. There were allegedly plans for a Croc 3 and he was rumoured to be getting a karting spin-off around the start of the PS2 era. I'm sure I don't need to tell you what's wrong with that sentence. Amazingly, there was also a Game Boy Color version of Croc 2, which is even less well-remembered. In fact, I suspect someone is mocking up shots and putting them on the internet to trick me. I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S REAL ANYMORE.
