So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?
To do:
  • Check whether the unused levels from the 3DO game still exist in this port.
  • Sift through the hundreds of Gex voice clips to look for anything unused.

A year and a half after its initial release, Gex was ported to Windows 95 by the same team that made the PC ports of Earthworm Jim and Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure.

Level Select

There's also blinking usage instructions, to make up for the lessened amount of choice.

While on any map screen, bring up the remote menu and type hoosierbuddy to access a level select menu for all of the main worlds of the game.

Interestingly, the unused levels from the 3DO game have all been intentionally removed from the list.

Planet X Level Select

The game's secret world, Planet X, is accessible through a separate level select cheat. At the title screen, type partyatroswell to access it.

As with the normal level select, the unused boss fight (SL71) has been removed from the list.

Unused Music

Located in the "MUS" folder, "GEX112.MUS" is a short, vaguely sci-fi sounding track found nowhere in the game. It may have been intended for the cut boss fight in Planet X.

VRAM Window

Hex edit bytes at 0x54A0 in the .exe from 74 05 to 90 90 to show the VRAM window.
