Croc is a side-scrolling platform version of Croc: Legend of the Gobbos for the Game Boy Color. It was developed by Fox Interactive and published by THQ in 2000.


One fateful day, the Gobbos discover a baby crocodile floating down the river. They name him Croc, but as they have no idea about crocodile behaviour, they treat him as one of their own.

Unbeknownst to them, the magician Baron Dante is watching the Gobbos, hating them for their happiness, and scheming to punish them for it. One day, he and his Dantini followers attack, kidnapping the Gobbos and hypnotizing the other animals in the vicinity into attacking the Gobbos as well. King Rufus turns to Croc, who puts on his backpack, and takes off on a journey to save his friends.


The game is a sidescroller. It contains several platform levels, vehicle levels, and boss fights. The order of the levels is loosely based off the original game.
