Forest Island (also known as Volcano, Mountain and Grass Island) is the first island of five islands in the Gobbo Archipelago in Croc: Legend of the Gobbos, and the one that Croc washed up on when he was a baby. This is the Island that King Rufus, king of the Gobbos, resides at. In the center sits the Gobbo Valley where all of the Gobbos in the Gobbo Archipelago reside.
The island consists mostly of hills and grass, with many caves filled with Lava. Lava flows outside the caves too, often in rivers. On top of the island's largest hill is a boxing ring in which Croc fights the second Guardian, Flibby in Fight Night With Flibby.
Shortly after Baron Dante initially invaded Gobbo Valley, him and his Dantinis trapped 36 Gobbos in Boxes, Cages, caves, and various other prisons and places throughout the island, including King Rufus, the leader of the Gobbos.

Let him chase you until he takes a swing, then while he's recovering, attack him. Tail-attack him when he stops and takes a short breath and he will chase you again. Do this three times to defeat him and complete the level.
Flibby - 1-B2 Fight Night With FlibbyWelcome to the Arena! Baron Dante had super-sized Flibby the Ladybird into the Flibby the punching Ladybird with boxing gloves and it's up to Croc to save her. She appears in Fight Night With Flibby, the ninth level of the first island and the second Guardian Croc encounters. The arena consists of a boxing ring where Croc must defeat her.
Flibby will attempt to punch you, but avoid her attacks, and then tail-attack her. Flibby will fall to the floor, at which you point you stomp on her. Do this a further two times, avoiding her attacks, and you will be to continue onto the second island, or the second secret level of the island, The Twisty Tunnels if you have collected all 6 Gobbos from the previous three levels.
Crystal Door Challenges
Crystal Door Challenges are those which are accessed by getting all 5 coloured crystals in a normal level and going through the purple Crystal Door at the end. The challenge must be completed in order to get the sixth Gobbo.
A rather simple Crystal Door Challenge for the first level, Croc must use the Jelly on the left to bounce high enough to get a Silver Key, ride the Balloon to the other side and free the Gobbo in the Cage with the Silver Key.
Croc is faced with only a Red Button to press, which activates a Popping Game in which Croc must jump on one of the switches on a control board corresponding to the location of the Sheep which pops out of either the left, middle or right Wells. Croc must successfully 'pop' enough Sheep to earn the Gobbo at the end. If he doesn't 'pop' enough Sheep, he will only be given a reward of two Hearts, one Heart, or nothing at all depending on how many Sheep were popped.
Difficulty: 1/5 (2 if you want all boxes)
The arena consists of a line of Smash Boxes. The first contains the last Gobbo. To get all of the boxes, when stomping go near the edge of each box, don't hold X when you stomp.
1-5 Cave Fear
Croc must jump into the water and must swim through a length of underwater tunnels until rescuing a trapped Gobbo inside a bubble. This is the first time in the game in which Croc can swim in a level.
