** Actually, it would appear that the vast majority of Gex's lines were rewritten in the UK release to suit British sense of humour and reflect British pop culture more accurately.

''Gex'' was a platformer franchise featuring a gecko who entered TV and movie themed worlds. The first entry, the simply titled ''Gex'', was a 2D platformer for the 3DO, and later the Playstation 1 and Sega Saturn. The next installment switched to 3D platforming, with ''Gex: Enter the Gecko''. It was released for the [=PS1=] and N64. The N64 port is noted for cutting out several levels due to space constraints and lacking cutscenes the game previously had (though to be fair, it featured one level that the [=PS1=] version lacked). The final entry, ''Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko'', was again released on the [=PS1=] and N64 (which did not have any of the [=FMVs=]).

* TheMaze: "The Project", the penultimate level of Planet X. The maze is absolutely huge, and, combined with how little of a level you see around Gex at any given time, very difficult to navigate. There are also false exits that send you to the end (in one case, through one of the developers, who must be defeated before he kills you) without the remote for the next level.

* AscendedExtra: Agent Xtra appeared briefly in the opening of ''Enter the Gecko'' and in the story in the instruction manuel. In this game, she's kidnapped and contacts you at the end of each level.



* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Scarabs?]]: Quoted word-for-word in the PAL version whenever Gex comes near a scarab in "Holy Moses!".

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: In the canyon section at the end of "Out of Toon," [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omGlRY65OnM A series of expertly-timed jumps]] can get you on top of a wall that's apparently not meant to reached, save for the fact that there's a TV containing infinite lives.
