Description

This is a late-90s remake of the original arcade classic Frogger. Navigate Frogger by hopping left, right, down and up through jungles, busy streets, sewers, and even the clouds to save his five little buddies, as well as the golden frogs of myth. Dodge cars, rats, and man eating alligators to stay alive. Snag some bugs for special abilities and points. Play against a friend online. Just remember, don't hop on sinking turtles.

  • The promo commercial for this game had a humorous Six Million Dollar Man theme that saw Frogger getting run over, then being reconstructed because "we have the technology."
  • The last sewer level is named "Reservoir Frogs". A spoof of the movie Reservoir Dogs.
