This page is a list of all pre-release and betas of Croc: Legend of the Gobbos.
The Croc Tech Demo is a pre-release of Croc: Legend of the Gobbos and was released on November 8th, 1996, and is the earliest release of the Croc series. The tech demo and the final release have many differences, including different sounds, including jumping, running and climbing. The demo does have a few levels similar to some of the retail ones. To complete a level, you need to get ALL Gobbos, and there are three in a level. This is different from the final game, where you can advance without collecting all the Gobbos hidden throughout the level. See the article for more details.
This version was released as a gift in a magazine, but only a few people still own it. This was likely given to a game magazine for reviewing the game, although this isn't certain. The Level Select Menu differs significantly to the final version. See the article for more details.
Croc: Legend of the Gobbos July 16 Beta (unreleased)EditThis version is even rarer than the 0.12 version, and is assumed that the CD was given to Fox employees to test, and compares significantly to the beta 0.12 version. It is currently owned by Wiki member Mr. Gimmick.
There are only a few minor differences - some of the level titles are slightly different, the backgrounds are different in some areas, different enemy and item placement, etc. It is considered to be the latest known version of the game before the final game. Currently, this version is not available to download and has yet to be dumped, although the owner has provided screenshots of the game as can be seen below.
