This timeline focuses on every bit of detail known about the Croc universe.
The Croc handheld games is loosely based off the console versions, so the majority of the timeline of the console versions will apply to the handheld games as well.
The Croc Mobile Series should be treated as its own entity, as it contains several plot holes, redesigns, and cliches not found in the original series.
