Back during the gold age of video games, mainly the early 1980s, one fantasy of all fans was to have the home version of a video game be as close as possible to the arcade version of the game. This rarely happened, though some games were better than others.

Also, the Atari 2600, the best seller of all the home video games systems back then, didn't offer the strongest graphics in the world. This made it even more difficult for fans to get a home version of a game that was equal to the arcade version.

There are even legends of horror about games for the Atari 2600 that were so little like their arcade cousins. The most famous culprit in this mess was the Atari version of Pac-Man, which many fans hated because it was nothing like the arcade Pac-Man.

But every once in a while there was an Atari 2600 version of a game that was quite like the arcade version. Such a game was Frogger, the cartridge released by Parker Brothers for the Atari 2600.

Frogger for the 2600 had pretty good graphics, though admittedly those graphics were not as strong as the original arcade graphics. But the sounds for the Atari version were quite impressive, and on par with the arcade Frogger.

Most importantly, the gameplay for the Atari version of Frogger was downright dead-on that of the arcade game. And that arcade experience was what many gamers wanted at home back in the day.

Was the Atari home version of Frogger perfect? No, but then few Atari 2600 games ever were, mainly because of generally sub-par graphics. But one has to keep in mind the technology level of the time, and the Atari had a lot going for it in terms of the number of games available for it and often in gameplay.

All these years later, Frogger for the Atari 2600 still stands up well, and it is a common game owned by collectors and fans of the gaming system and the game itself.

The game got here about two days before expected. It was in much better condition than I would have anticipated from the description and price, and of course played with no issues.

I finally have an Atari game I can play with one of my best friends and both of us can enjoy... thanks!

The goal in this game is simple, move across gaps without being run over or falling in the water. The game does get a little challenging and is very fun. I would highly recommend this game to any retro gamer.

Frogger for the atari 2600 is a gem of a port of an arcade classic.

ok so it dosent have all the bells and whistles like video games do now..but when this port came out originally..all that mattered is the gameplay...and even in 2011 its still one excellent port.....the 2600 version ranks up there with the sega genesis version for the fun factor..sure the genesis version looked better...but the 2600 version is classic all the way...i still remember the commercials for this one and wanting this game for christmas which i did get along with q bert..

remember that seinfeld episode where george bought the frogger arcade game? classic! and youll see what frogger is all about when you plug a copy into your atari...hop to it! its not that hard to find and its worth checking out.

fun fact many people didnt realize that frogger was actually produced by sega (read the label its stated there)

I really enjoy the frogger for the Atari system. It reminds me of when my kids were growing up and now my grand-kids can enjoy the same games when they come to visit me. My grandson already played it and he enjoyed the game.

Frogger is such a classic title a lot of versions have been made of this classic, but only one version sticks out in my mind as the best and that's the 2600 version.

Loved the game in the arcade, didn't get a chance to get this in the Atari version 30 years ago. But I love it.

The best thing to come from Frogger is the Sienfield episode of George playing a real life Frogger with the Arcade machine (He was trying to cross a busy street with it). But this is a great port of the original Arcade. I was surprised to find out that it was actually made by SEGA. This is a game to have with a Atari VCS(Video Computer System)/2600. I don't give it five stars, because it is unbeatable (as far as I know). But it's just as classic as PAC-MAN. I highly recommend this game. It also works on the Atari 7800.

-Thanks
