Product Description
Don't become roadkill!
Don't become roadkill!

For those of you of a certain age--remember video arcades? the Atari 2600?--this is an absolutely must-have app. Newbies will love it too, especially kids. It's not just any classic video game of yesteryear--it's FROGGER.

Carry the girl frogs to safety
Carry the girl frogs to safety
Blast from the Past

If you played video games in the early 1980s, you remember Frogger. Along with Pac-Man and Donkey Kong, this was one of the biggest early successes in the industry. Anybody could play Frogger--all you had to do was guide the green amphibian across the street and over the logs and turtles to his slot on the other side of the river. Simple, but totally addicting.

The Original and Best

Don't be fooled by imitations--this is the real thing, published by the original manufacturer, Konami. You get the same look and feel, and moving your frog is smooth as silk with the slide controls. If you have trouble with sliding, you have the option of moving by tapping the screen. No more stiff joysticks to worry about!

Why? To Get to the Other Side

A frog's world is full of danger. Speeding cars and trucks clog the four-lane freeway you must cross just to get to the riverbank--be careful you don't end up with tire tracks on your back. You have to be equally quick and adept on the river, because the logs move fast and if you go off the edge of the screen, it's curtains. Try to carry the cute female frogs to safety and eat the flies for bonus points, but watch out for crocodiles or you'll become lunch yourself!

Phantom Phroggie

An interesting twist in this version is Phantom Mode, which guides you during the game by showing the route you took in your best game. In regular mode, you can post your high scores online and see who the top guns are with OpenFeint. Happy hopping!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Ignore the Rating August 26, 2011
Verified Purchase
I downloaded this despite the 2.5 star rating & I now understand why it has such terrible reviews.

Some will tell you that the 1 star ratings are just people complaining to complain; that there's nothing wrong with this game. The truth is, this game feels UNRESPONSIVE & playing gets FRUSTRATING pretty quickly. There is NO CONSISTANT FRAME RATE & the game gets LAGGY. Bottom line.

The controls by themselves are just dumb. Don't bother using "Tap" controls, because you can easily find yourself tapping just outside of the directional quadrant & frantically tapping to right yourself before you die. The "Swipe" controls are better, but still not great. You have to take your time between swipes, or the frog will not jump when you tell it to.

Frogger: Pretty good arcade game, but horrible mobile game/app.

PASS!

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad gaming experience overall!! August 26, 2011
Verified Purchase
I was happy to see this classic as the free app, but even for a free app this sucks. The controls are bad, the game is slow, runs only in the portrait mode and add to that it malfunctions - even after I exited the game the background music kept going on and on...and I had to force close this. And why in the works does a game which had absolutely no need for GPS data need permissions to fine GPS access ??! Seedy, suspicious and badly made. STAY AWAY !!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not even fit to screen January 10, 2013
Verified Purchase
Unlike the other games you purchase for your kindle which fit the entire screen to play, this game only fills up the screen about the size of a iphone which makes it even harder to play as the screen is very small. Plus its not as much fun as when we were younger and tried to challenge ourselves now its much easier

SAVE YOUR MONEY BUY ANOTHER GAME!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars No problems here... August 26, 2011
Verified Purchase
I had no problems running this game on my rooted EVO 4g. Not the GREATEST game out there, but quite playable. Just to be clear, you can swipe ANYWHERE ON THE SCREEN, AND IN ANY DIRECTION TO MOVE THE FROG. One reviewer said that his finger was always covering the frog; I can't even see how that would be possible.
If you don't like a game, or it legitimately isn't working right on your phone (and the discription says that it should), fine. But actually play the game a bit before trashing.

3.0 out of 5 stars crappy controls January 3, 2013
This is a fun game, but it is frustrating that the controls are do touchy. Any time I try and go up it will go side ways, and when I go sideways it goes up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Arcade Game September 11, 2011
By MadCat
Verified Purchase
Got this as a free app of the day. I don't think I would have ever thought to purchase it. If you have ever played Frogger, you should know what to expect. The controls are updated to use the touch screen (just swipe the direction you want the frog to go). I have some issues with the frog dieing when I don't think it should have (jumped behind a car and still got run over, and stuff like that). I would love to have a physical directional pad to control the frog with, but that isn't a fault of the game. It uses open feint, in case you like using that service. There are only a handful of achievements, but it is still cool seeing more games use it.

1.0 out of 5 stars don't be sorry!
I'm hard pressed to even give this one star! I also understand why they are not offering a test drive on this game. Very disappointing app.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay
I remember the first frogger and in my younger years played it all the time. This wasn't as good as that first one so it is one I have on my Kindle but seldom play.
