I love Croc, but it isn't a cute game by any standard. It's downright terrifying in places.

The sequels, that might actually be considered "cute", are trash.
>>
>>2896249

I love croc. I know I might get hate for this, but I'd love for a Steam re-release with achievements. I have the original games but it'd just be cool to have an added replay excuse.

>>2896359

Also, this. The Croc games aren't all that cute really.

only played Croc 2. how does the original stand up?

I have legit never heard of this. Looks really fun.

I've been playing it on an emulator. Such a fun little shooter.

It's my goal to one day own a CiB copy. I should probably take the plunge sooner rather than later, because it reaches Stadium Events levels of madness...

Best soundtrack ever (rare Japanese arpeggios near the end!):

I love that /vr/ is such a small board that I can recognize some posters from previous threads.

Most classic N64 games (Kirby 64, Smash Bros, a Bug's Life, Luigis mansion, etc) are really fun, and as a female gamer I've always preferred them to the games for the PSX which seem more alienating. xD

Mind expanding on this?
>>
>>2899446
Yeah sorry bro. Magical Chase has achieved honest & true holy grail status.
>>
>>2899580
Well, it hasn't reached Epic tier yet. It's not Stadium Events or Air Raid. It's not even Red Sea Crossing, although it could be one day. The last copy sold went for $4000. I could settle for a loose cart, but even that could become prohibitively expensive.

looks like a croc of shit to me

It is nothing like Croc 2, for starters. The original game was completely unspoken, with gestures and body language used as the medium for speaking. It was 99% gameplay with cutscenes only as an intro, and as very brief scenes of how Baron Dante turned regular creatures into bosses. No weird grunts and gibberish. Just very much a classic silent protagonist game, where you choose what to make of it all, instead of being spoon-fed unimportant dialogue.

The controls and movement can be a pain in the ass, and it's by no means a programming gem, but overall I think it's up there with Crash and Spyro.
>>
>>2899551
Being thrown into dark rooms with little visibility, where you can fall off ledges and die, while having to figure out new game mechanics that create time constraints.

The later areas in the game and very dark and gritty, and put you up against obstacles that would be a challenge with better controls and movement. Throw in some enemies while you climb a staircase of falling platforms, and you've got a pretty scary situation on your hands.
>>
>>2896274
you can warp past half the levels and there is a stage select

the basic gameplay isn't even comparable

it's a nice little platformer though, and all the Namco PCE and Genesis character cameos in the bonus levels are cool

It gets very precise with jumping, that's for sure.

>Japanese arpeggios
>Rare

I thought arpeggios were the only thing Jap musicians knew how to do?
>>
>>2904779
European chiptune style fast arpeggios, not arpeggio as in the traditional musical technique.

The only examples I know are:
Magical Chase (PC Engine)
Devilish (Genesis)
Final Fantasy 3 (Famicom)
Batman: The Animated Series (Gameboy)
Tiny Toon Adventure 2 (Gameboy)
Doki Doki Sasete (Gameboy Color)

Borderline cases:
Wrecking Crew (NES) - it's only 32th notes, so it's not really fast enough
Castlevania 3 (NES) - has a gap between repetitions, I think it's trying to replicate the sound of strumming a stringed instrument, and only accidentally sounds a bit like a chipstyle arpeggio

Post more Japanese arpeggios if you know of them.
>>
>>2904779
Mate, I don't think you know what an arppegio is.

>at 2:19 Astérix game tune

Fuck yeah, that game has underappreciated musics.
>>
>>2904845
More or less. Alberto Gonzalez music is definitely among the best and rather unpopular, but it's not exactly underapprediacted. Many use his music to give examples for advance chiptune techniques, as seen in that video. Or in this one.

Or in this disseration.

And just in case you want to show him your appreciation, here is his YouTube channel.

I just wanted to come here and say that while Croc 2 is very different, it's still fucking awesome and I love it.

And I can't find a good method of playing it again. :(
>>
>>2905148
Burn it to a nearby CD-R laying around or emulate it.
>>
>>2905119
His soundtrack for Asterix & Obelix on the SNES is some of the best music on the system. Loving his NES and GB output too though, real quality engineering all the way
>>
>>2905119
I've always loved the musics in that game. It's one of those NES platformers I've played a hundred times as a kid. I had no idea the composer was famous.

The theme for Helvetia was one of my fav, super atmospheric

>>2903942
Played it some more today, loving the castle levels and I love how the jumping feels here in general.
It's shaping up to be quite better than I remember it in the end
>>
>>2904842
Too slow, like Wrecking Crew. A human could play it on real instruments so I don't think it counts. True chipstyle arpeggios are too fast to humans to play.

The world in Croc feels weirdly empty. It's like a shell of the world of Spyro except uninhabited except for the little furry things Croc is rescuing. Playing it feels like playing emptiness.

we don't have nearly as many SMAC threads as we should. Those are always fun and I wish I saw them more often.

This. It's a really simple straight forward RPG, turn based, its really short but I quite enjoyed it
>>
>>2908683
Looks interesting.
>>
Nobody remembers this masterpiece anymore.
>>
>>2911094
Yeah it's basically an escort mission where you have to take "Baby" the pink dragon thing, to a landmark called God's Tower (no religion affiliation at all). Baby is like a virtual pet that you have to take care of, and there's no magic, but instead you using "living toys", that each can be summoned in combat and each do different things. They can be found throughout the whole game and there's like 70 of them to find. The graphics and music also really add to the whole "cuteness" factor.

Super adorable, never heard of it though. Looks and sounds neat
>>2911370
Is it really good? I did buy this out of curiosity and I wasn't really drawn in but I also don't remember much, I didn't play too long. What do you do in it?
>>2908683
>>2911094
Yeah I really love this game. Simple and straightforward is right, but it's also unique, I can't say it feels like any other RPG I've played. Your one permanent party member is pretty cute and gets cuter (and more useful) as the game goes on.
>>
>>2913470
Oh yeah I forgot about his transformations. He can do some pretty useful ones, too. I remember by the end of the game he could kill anything with like 1 or 2 hits at the most. The whole virtual pet thing isn't that deep though; it's pretty much, make sure to feed him once in a while and praise him. If you don't he can disobey and may attack you during battles. You may not think so, but he can do some serious damage. It's still neat that virtual pet thing is in there though.
