Whoop whoop, cutesy game alert, warning warning! The Cool Croc Twins are here. Punk Croc and Funk Croc are twins and damn cool twins at that, hence the wild and wacky title.
The only notable difference between Punk and Funk is that one of the green-
Now as it happens, as it happens boys and girls, Daisy Crocette is madly in love with them both. Why on earth doesn't she just have a three-in-a-bed-
Daisy being a dopey croc bimbo decides to forsake her love for the twins and runs off to a Crockery. Why she would want to leave those boys and join a load of cups and plates, I don't know. Oh all right, it's not a load of plates, it's sort of a convent for crocs.
Now if your girlfriend-to-be decided to bugger off and become a nun, you wouldn't be the happiest little croc in the world. So it's time for a fight back. Punk and Funk must battle through 60 screens to win back the lovely Daisy.
The Cool Croc Twins is a straight
The idea is simple - all you have to do is guide either Puk or Funk around the screen. By pressing Fire on the joystick you must make them jump into some little blocks which are liberally dotted around.
A light will illuminate each time you hit a block. You have to hit each block three times, so that the three lights, err light up. Light up all the blocks and you will progress to the next level. Easy, ain't it?
Now all games with good guys in them have to have bad guys too - it's the law of computer games. The battle of good against evil is what computer games are all about. There are loads of mischievous beasties, trying to stop you from reaching the croc goddess Daisy. They do this by turning the lights on the blocks off again. If one of these monsters hit you, you will lose one of your previous three lives.
Don't worry though - help is at hand. If you land on top of, or hit, a beastie in mid-air, it will disappear. You will receive bonuses when you kill one of these beasties, but don't hang around because another will be around to fill its place.
The poster/manual included with the game - to be honest - tells you precious little. It's got Punk and Funk in conversation telling you what to do, but unfortunately because it's a supposedly cool game it's got supposedly cool 'speak' in it.
Phrases like "tyell it lie it is, bro" litter the instructions. Besides, it's probably better not to read the instructions, and to work it out for yourself instead.
Overall, The Cool Croc Twins is not bad. The graphics are fairly good, but nothing really special. Soundwise there are a few funksome tunes to be heard and a few effects. It is very playable, being more fun in two-player mode than in one. I liked Cool Croc Twins, but there's something about it that doesn't make it a hit game.
I can't really put my finger on what it is, but I think it's something to do with the actual format. After a while it all gets a bit too similar. Never mind, not every game gets or deserves a Gamer Gold and guess what? This is one of those games.
