Every time I turn around, someone seems to be releasing another game from the good old days. The next level adds more traffic, less time and less objects in the river. This was one of the last games released on the Genesis, from what I hear. Frogger is a lot of fun to play. In truth, even the original version of Frogger would've satisfied me enough, but Hasbro went the extra mile and reproduced the game in 3-D.
You will get a few good hours of enjoyment out of this mode. Unless you are some crazy, frog-hating maniac, I would suggest you pick up this game, you Genesis gamer, you. You still get 200 points. The 3D environment serves Frogger well, but this is only secondary to the gameplay. Ok Brandon in Ontario Considering this came out almost 20 years after Frogger came out in arcades, I thought there would be more to it then this.
First, and foremost, I did not like any of the new levels. . I'll admit that I thought an updated Frogger game was a good idea. The new levels are very unclear on what the object is and where it is located. Audio The music in this game is bouncy and vivacious, and I really enjoyed it.
For the hopelessly nostalgic, it's rumored that the first Frogger in original form will be hidden within the game. Graphics The move to 3D has done our little froggie well. This version is 3D, has nine unique worlds and can play up to 4 players together on a split screen. Of all the remakes of video games from the past that I have seen, Frogger seems to be the most dramatically advanced in terms of both the technology used and the innovations introduced in the gameplay. One that primarily featured a frog, none the less. The controls are very simple, just use the D-pad to hop.
Gameplay The gameplay in Frogger is fast, frenzied, and fun. They felt like the good old arcade game if it were to be released in the 90's. It was your job to work your way from the bottom of the screen to the top of the screen and save the baby frogs. Many clones were also created, the best of which was called Pacific Coast Highway. But the information is nicely presented and quite helpful in playing the game, particularly for those who have never seen the original arcade version. The plenty of levels will keep you interested for a while, and the multiplayer is of course available. Once found, rescue them for extra points.
All the game really needs is a little direction and it would have been a lot better. It is also very easy to get lost and not have any clue where it is you are supposed to be going. As far as retro games go, this is one of the worst. It is often unnoticed, but when you complete a level, the noses of all the frogs from left to right will turn into hearts and their eyes will light up. MiscellaneousSequels, such as Frogger 3D, were created for the home computer. If this is true, why has there been such a boom in retro games? This mode resulted in more good-natured harassment than I can remember in a long time. Anyway, after you rescue the 5 baby frogs at the top of the screen, you move on to the next level.
It will seem easy at first, but trust me, it gets much more interesting later on. This was never possible on the actual arcade game since you always ran out of time before the song finshed playing. It starts off slow but gets really hard really quick. Back then, all players had to do was maneuver their frog across several gauntlets including a log-jammed river and a busy street without falling in the water or getting crushed by a car. It was released by Majesco Sales Inc. If you are like me, you don't mind challenge, but you at least want to know what the hell you are trying to do and have some idea of how to do it. Frogger is one of these games, sort of.
In addition to the standard single-player game, you can play Frogger with up to 4 players with a multiplayer split screen. So in the one area the new Frogger really shines, graphics, it really is just secondary because the gameplay on the new levels is not too enthralling. You might run into some falling boulders which you must carefully avoid, or even an invisible bridge you must cross. You guide the frog not only across busy highways, but also through polluted ponds, hostile deserts, and dark caves while avoiding the likes of crocodiles, lawnmowers, turtles, and snakes ready to end his days. Call me nostalgic but I really got a kick out or Frogger. You won't find the original game here, but what you will find is an updated version of the same game. Overview Everyone is always looking for the newest, fastest, biggest and best, right? The updated graphics on the old levels look good and it makes you think about how much things have changed.
