Nice platformer with a characterfull gecko!
They were all after the throne that Sonic had managed to create for itself, and when I say them I look at Earthworm Jim which managed a decent job at that and also at Gex, which, in his own defense, was more inclined towards speculating the humor of the Earthworm Jim series rather than going for its faster and more diverse execution. But, yeah, Gex managed to create a less speedy, a more lenis, and more infused with puzzles action adventure in sidescrolling platformer style, and for that matter, it did a decent job. Graphically it stood somewhere at the line of shareware and higher quality titles, and, well, some might have thought that it was a budget game, which, in all honesty it was. So, actually, rather than seeing the graphical outlook of the game as some sort of disappointment, it's rather more of a success story. Anyway, given that you're playing a gecko, it should come as no surprise to you that his activities revolve around bug eating, leaping from platform to platform and also, walking on vertical surfaces. Yap, those suction cups on his feet and hands sure come in handy! So yeah, a nice, alright game, great for those that though Sonic a tad too fast and Jim a tad too muscular for a worm! Also, see Gex in 3D, for a 64 bit era like platformer experience.
