Fazit: Ein herrlicher Spaß! Bei der Fülle an Details empfiehlt sich jedoch ein möglichst großer Bildschirm!

The Video Game Critic
This is really one of the greatest and most popular Atari 2600 cartridges of all time. Frogger features bright, colorful graphics that appeal to both men and women of all ages.

The Atari Times
This is a fun, very decent arcade adaption, and that's pretty high praise, coming from a guy who doesn't really give a care about these slimy amphibians in real life.

All Game Guide
Named the Best Arcade to Home Translation of 1982 by Electronic Games Magazine, Frogger for the Atari VCS is not graphically perfect (the turtles are simple ovals, for example), but the visuals are colorful and clear. More importantly, the controls are accurate and the action captures the feel of the arcade game marvelously. The otters, which show up in later levels of the coin-op classic, are missing, but virtually everything else is firmly in place. The music only plays before and after games, but it is bright and tunefully faithful to the original. As with many Atari 2600 games, Frogger does feature options not found in the arcade game -- namely Speedy Frogger and an easier difficulty level that allows the frog to float off-screen with impunity.

(Supercharger version)
Gut: Die Grafik ist hervorragend und kommt dem von Sega lizensierten Arkadenspiel relativ nahe. Sagen wir's so: Wer einen Supercharger hat, aber Frogger noch nicht besitzt und perfekt spielen möchte, dem sei diese Cassette wärmstens empfohlen. Ausschließlich für diesen Kreis ist die Starpath-Version interessant. Ansonsten - schade um die Mühe!
