Croc is a third-person, 3D platform game starring a crocodile named Croc, who is trying to save furry little creatures called Gobbos from the evil Baron Dante. Croc must travel across four islands to find and save all the Gobbos, dealing with the Baron's henchmen along the way.
Croc was originally conceived by Argonaut as a Yoshi game, but Nintendo was not interested in publishing it, so a new character was substituted.
There are four islands and one secret island in the game. In each of the four main islands there are six levels, in which Croc has to collect six Gobbos and five Colored Crystals. The Colored Crystals open the Crystal Door at the end of each normal level which contain the sixth Gobbo required. This is usually the hardest part of the level.
Each also contains two Boss Levels, in which Croc collects crystals instead of Gobbos and fights a boss at the end of the level. If all six Gobbos are collected in each set of three levels, and the boss is defeated, two secret levels are unlocked in which Croc has to find jigsaw pieces. Collecting all eight jigsaw pieces in each secret level grants access to the secret island.
The Gobbo King Rufus was watching the sunset when he noticed a small basket in the lake, containing a small, screaming baby crocodile. The Gobbos begin to raise him and train him to become one of their own. Croc mostly ate buckets of peas when raised by the Gobbos. Croc eventually grew to twice the size of a normal Gobbo. All was peaceful until one day suddenly, the evil Baron Dante arrives and invades with the help of his demon minions, Dantinis. He imprisons many of the Gobbos, most notably their King, who he keeps in a steel cage within his castle island. Before the Gobbo King is taken, he hits a magical gong that summons a yellow bird called Beany. Beany, in turn, causes Croc to shrink and he whisks Croc away to safety. Croc then goes on a quest to free all the Gobbos and defeat the evil Baron Dante himself.
