You may have names the dog Indy... but there's a gecko with the same hat. KUNG FU WORLD There's nothing like getting hung up in Channel 26. Fighting your way through moronic martial arts scenes is bad enough, but can't they get that voice track in sync? It's Big Trouble in Little China with ninjas, samurai geckos, sumo wrestlers.... enough is enough. Walk softly, little grasshoppers, and whip a fast tail! REZ'S NERVE CENTER A world betond insanity takes center stage. Vast installations of alien hi-tech circuitry fume with electrical force! Energy geysers leap from pulsating waves of liquid television. This is the twisted reality whre network programs are chosen. At last, GEX confronts Rez himself in a battle that will decide the fate of the universe... and more importantly, whether a gecko will be next season's network mascot!

LIVES & MILESTONES Run past a quick-shot camera and hit it with a tail whip to take a snap of GEX. Then, is GEX loses a life, you will restart the level from that spot, instead of from the beginning. If GEX loses all his lives, the milestone snapshots don't make a difference. Remember to collect VCR tapes to receive passwords, so you don't have to start the game from the beginning. CLUES Compliments of Rez... flying TV! if you accidently whack these arial bombs with a tail whip, they start a countdown. Don't be in the way when they explode. Find the tricks in each world to overcome tough spots, such as slapping the floting skulls to knock out the flooting tv's. Switch on movie cameras with a tail whip to activate a special mechanism. Then look around to see what's changed, like a bridge falling into place or a door opening. Ride the rafts across shooting geysers. Jump, duck, & tail whip from your safe flotation device, but hang on! Conveyor belts travel horizonally and vertically, either grounded or floting in the air. Stick on them and you'll be whisked away ot other places. Find a remote controller in each world and whap it with a tail to gain owenership. Use the remote to escape to the next world. The Media Dimension has other suprises in store, such as deadly pools of liquid Rez and secret levels. Find em' Dano! Each world's boss is rough and tough to beat. Each one can be destroyed if you figure out his sceret. Pick up a VCR tape to get a password.
