The Creators Collection is a group of games on Xbox One which don't follow traditional publishing or ID@Xbox protocols. Anyone can develop a game and post it on the Microsoft Store as long as they do so through the Xbox Live Creators Program. Since then we've seen some great titles and free experiences like Solitaire HD and Tic Tac Toe, but Croc's World is definitely the highlight here. It features great controls and is quite similar to a legendary franchise.
You may notice many similarities between this game and a famous platformer starring an Italian plumber who jumps on turtles and mushrooms. The level design is very similar except for some key differences. You still jump around and break blocks or destroy enemies. However, instead of gaining a special red mushroom which makes you bigger, this game gives you a football helmet. If you manage to keep the helmet and come across another power-up, you gain the ability to throw rocks instead of fireballs. Lastly, if you collect a hundred diamonds, you'll get an extra life. You get the picture.
If you like Mario or other platformers, be sure to check out Croc's World. The Microsoft Store says that the game features a $1.99 add-on, which probably unlocks the full game. We tested out the game and found it to be quite delightful. The controls are solid, it looks great, and runs at 60 FPS. The controls make or break any such experience so it's great to see the developer perfect them for the Xbox One version.
