Description[edit]

Credits in the title screen.

Frogger Arcade is a remake of the original arcade version of frogger created by Konami in 1981. The C64 version was published by the game development group Hokuto Force at Christmas 2015. The current version is a preview or beta version. In the moment there are two versions in the CSDb.

In this game you have to let frogs hop over a street with much traffic and over logs and turtles in a floating stream to one of the five free spaces at the upper rim of the screen. Dangers are always there: Cars drive over the frog and he does also not survive leaving the screen or jumping into water, and so on.

Each frog needs to reach its aim within a given time. The time that is left is added to your score. When all 5 places are occupied, the next level starts. In higher levels and by raising your points the traffic gets more and faster. Crossing the stream is aggravated by missing logs, submerging turtles and other small scurvinesses as crocodiles, water snakes and beavers. Furthermore, the available time is shortened and the speed rises. There are bonus points when pinching flies and the toad.


Design[edit]

A lot of traffic on the street and in the river...

The game (also like the original game Frogger) takes place in a static screen design (so no scrolling or changing of the screen), in which animated cars move in the lower part and animated logs, turtles, crocodiles, water snakes, beavers in a stream and the frog itself move in the upper part. There are sound effects and a nice background music, which is changed by moving a frog in the destination place.
