Cheats, Hints and Tips
There are many cheats, hints, and tips in the Croc series. In Croc: Legend of the Gobbos you can enter a password in the Main Menu option to select a level. When selecting a level in normal play, you can select the "Show Password" option to show the password for that level.
When entering passwords in the Main Menu, the letters represent the directional buttons on the controller, so U is Up, D is Down, L is Left, and R is Right. The Island passwords unlock only the first level of that Island. Note that the Island passwords will unlock only the first level of the island. Also, when using a password for a secret level, the level after will also be unlocked, because you do not have to complete the secret level in order to get to the next level. Not all passwords function correctly, for example:
- The password for Fight Night With Flibby and Demon Itsy's Ice Palace will allow the player to select any level up to Life's a Beach.
- The password for Be Wheely Careful, Riot Brrrrr, and all levels from and after The Tower of Power will allow players to play all levels.
- I Snow Him So Well and Licence To Chill will unlock all levels up to Leap of Faith.

In the level Panic at Platform Pete's Lair, it is possible to wholly avoid the tricky block-to-block jumps in crystal door challenge. You can jump from GOBBO #3 platform straight to GOBBO #6 platform. It is not very easy but it is possible.

Mid-air Somersault Jump
This feature allows you to do a Somersault in mid-air when you're jumping.
- To perform it, move forward, press both of the side-step buttons at once, then Croc will perform a jump and do a somersault in mid-air.
- You'll actually move farther than jumping.
- The somersault was never mentioned in the manual or game, and remained a complete secret to discover.
- Although the "Start with nine heart pots" cheat is present in the PC version, it appears to be non-functioning. This is proven by DebugView which will acknowledge if it is activated. It is unknown if something may trigger it to work.
