GexSTORY / GAMEPLAY
On this cool platform game, the hero is Gex, a TV-addict gecko that walks like a human and has special abilities in climbing walls and jumping above gaps. One day, while Gex was watching TV and eating snacks, he accidentally swallowed a house fly. This house fly happened to be a type of camera used by an alien-like figure called Rez, the ruler of the Media Dimension. Suddenly, Rez grabs Gex and immerses him inside the Media Dimension's living nightmare! Gex is actually transferred inside his favorite TV set and finds a hostile, alternative world! He now must find a way to escape. And this can be done if he manages to fix all malfunctioning TV sets that block his exits. He must collect remote controls (!) to "unlock" those defective TV sets and finally defeat the evil Rez. Each TV world is swarmed by creatures of the night like mummies, chainsaw killers, flying TV sets and many traps found around like spikes or even quicksand. On the way, our funny gecko can also collect a variety of bonuses (like extra gold in the form of golden insects, energy boosts and more). His only weapon is his lizard skills, his powerful tail (with which he can hit and kill the enemies) and his tongue(!) The gameplay is fun and the difficulty level is -thankfully- gradual (like in most platform games). All the above features are packed with a presentation that's among the best of its era (one of the best mid 90s platform games)!

GRAPHICS / SOUND
After a cool, full motion video, intro sequence, Gex is dragged into a nightmarish world (like The Cemetery) that sports great visuals, cartoon-style sprites, dark shades of colors, fast action and smooth animation. The game's sound is equally impressive (as expected due to its CD quality) with multiple stereo channels creating a variety of awesome sound effects, speech and a music score that is -in one word- fantastic! Overall, Gex is a stunning, fun and smart video game that every PS1, 3DO, Saturn or MS-DOS owner should play!
