Frogger
Frogger

 

     There are more ways to die in Frogger than in any other video game–or so it is said. Frogger’s single-action joystick and multifaceted creatures make the game a challenge for both novices and experts. Like Donkey Kong and Pac-Man, Frogger succeeds because it combines a complex maze and attractive graphics with extremely simple operation.
     The object of the game is to move Frogger–a character with almost as much charm as Donkey Kong’s Mario the Jumpman–from the bottom of the screen to the top so that he is not hit by cars, drowned in a river, or eaten alive. Defender and Centipede experts beware: reflex action is not enough. In this game, you actually have to think before you act. In 1997, an updated but, compared with the original, unsatisfying version of Frogger was released for the home CD-ROM market.
