The scenery is blocky but conveys a cozy pond environment, complete with plants lining the edge and tree branches hanging overhead. As the sky darkens, the action becomes more competitive and intense. At the game's end, a fly pulls a "The End" sign across the screen, and crickets can be heard chirping in the background. My friends and I have a blast with this game, and there's a surprising amount of trash talk. Frogs and Flies also appeals to women, and is one of the few M-Network games that supports solo play.
A simple, yet enjoyable game, Frog Bog pits one frog against another in a bug-catching contest. Each frog hops back and forth on a pair of lily pads, flicking their tongues to catch four different types of flying critters. Providing easily accessible action, Frog Bog has excellent atmosphere highlighted by chirping crickets, the sounds of wind rustling through the reeds, nicely drawn cattails and greenery, and nighttime scenes in which fireflies flutter about.
Frog Bog is just inches away from being the perfect two-player contest for the Intellivision. It's simple to pick up, has plenty of options, and aesthetically impresses even today. It's just a shame that the controls aren't as polished as the rest of the package. Overall, it's still a good choice to pull out on a quiet, lazy afternoon with friends.
Frogs and Flies may not offer a whole lot of gameplay depth, but it’s a nice diversion that especially shines in two-player mode.
On peut jouer seul pour établir un record, ou à deux, chacun sa grenouille, chacun son nénuphar... Hélas, les insectes sont communs, et seul le plus rapide mangera à sa faim ! Enfin, mention spéciale au graphisme : sublime.
These two issues combined make the game feel more an exercise in luck that skill. Frog Bog is first-rate in terms of graphics and sound; too bad its gameplay isnt' up to the same standard.
