Frog on Ice is cute and challenging . I enjoyed it very much but the trial didn't help me understand what I was supposed to do as much as I would have liked.

3.0 out of 5 stars Weird controls and layout ruin this. January 2, 2013
Verified Purchase
The concept of the controls are simple enough; it's the implementation that's the issue. You tap a location and your idiotic frog that has somehow wandered into a climate not exactly suitable for amphibians shoots his tongue out to that area and pulls himself towards it. At the same time, this same mechanism is used to attack enemies, which can cause damage if you get too close to them. See the issue here? Not only that, but the pause and store buttons are also in extremely inconvenient areas that your right thumb will naturally be pressing near, so you tend to accidentally press these two things quite a bit. The graphics are good and the concept intriguing, but the game is ruined by the controls.

***UPDATE***
February 8th, 2013

The developer has since updated the app and I've had a chance to try it again. I still find the controls to be bad, but the game itself is much more bearable now that the store button has been moved and the game saves your progress. The rating has been increased from two stars to three.

I almost skipped this one due to the first 3 reviews, tagged as "most helpful," saying it has bad controls, bad graphics, is different in a bad way, & that the way you move is the same as the way you kill the baddies, which reportedly means you end up throwing yourself into them when you try to kill them. It had just 3 stars, which combined with all 3 top reviews being negative, told me it's a total waste of time. I looked at the permissions though, &the only requirement is web access. No excessive permissions means I'll give anything a chance, so long as it doesn't look like something I wouldn't play regardless of how well done it is. Conversely, excessive permissions means I won't give it a chance, even if it looks great. Still, everything looked so convincing that it couldn't possibly be worth trying, I almost didn't bother.
I'm so glad I tried it for myself! I'm on the EVO 4G LTE, the graphics are good, the controls are smooth, the gameplay innovative. I told my wife to check it out even though these kind of games aren't her thing because it's different enough and addictive enough that she might like it. If you are on the fence about this game all I can say is it works great on my EVO & is catchy Fun.
What I like:
It's a frog, on ice. You move by sticking your tongue to something,then sliding that direction. Since you're on ice, you don't stop where your finger is. Since you stick then drag, it's got this lag that takes a little getting used to. It's counterintuitive,but in a good way. Like patting your head & rubbing your stomach, it challenges you to break out of your usual movements.
I told my wife that playing it made me feel a little like a cat chasing a laser point.

3.0 out of 5 stars Different and challenging January 2, 2013
Different isn't always good. I found this game challenging, both in gameplay and just in trying to get the controls to cooperate. But I guess you are talking about ice here, which I can find just as challenging when I'm trying to slide around on it. You use the tongue of the frog to pull the avatar around the screen and through the screens. I do wish the graphics were a bit better because I often mistook something on the screen for something else. Often times this meant getting hit by something bad or missing something that could have proved helpful. Sometimes I couldn't even tell what was ideal and friendly terrain. The concept is pretty different but in the long run it wasn't something that could hold my attention. But at a dollar, I couldn't complain too much.

3.0 out of 5 stars Odd Game
This game mechanic is novel (the frog uses his tongue to crawl across the ice as well as hit enemies), but the movement is wacky and not well controlled. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Another one that will leave you bored quickly
It is a fun concept and the first few levels are great, but once I got stuck I found myself bored playing the same screen over and over again too many times.
