In a time of dinosaurs, archaeology, and Mega Drive tunes, the once peaceful Crocodillian Island cried out for a hero. He was Brock Crocodile, a mighty reptile forged in the heat of 16-bit inspired aesthetics and classic platforming action. And as the protagonist of Digi Croc’s upcoming adventure game of the same name, Brock Crocodile is also an archaeologist in a bit of a pickle: Four unsavory criminals have mysteriously vanished, forcing Brock to travel from the safety of Crocoh Lake all the way to the badlands in the East to uncover their wicked plans.
A love-letter to mascot platformers of the eighties and nineties, Brock Crocodile pays homage to titles such as Monster World and Quackshot. From a gameplay perspective, it attempts to blend the complexity of level design from Sonic the Hedgehog and the precision elements of Shinobi. Bestowed with a trusty whip and fruit gun, Brock must swing, jump, and blast his way through 20 frantic levels that cater to both fans of speed-running and hardcore platforming. The game is split into two main modes: Town mode, in which Brock can interact with NPCs (non-playable characters), and Stage mode, where he must explore the worlds of Crocodillian Island, acquiring gems and treasures in classic side-scrolling fashion. Those interested in supporting the game can lend their votes on Steam, where the game is looking for some Greenlight love.
