Description

Frogatto & Friends is an open-source, freeware platform game where the player controls a cartoon amphibian exploring a world of pixelated graphics, rendered with a limited palette as a homage to old classics of the genre. Frogatto can be controlled with the standard movement directions, two buttons for jump and attack, and pressing up to interact with scenery features like doors and other hotspots.

As in Kirby's Dream Land and other games, the main character possesses no weapons or powers by default, but has the ability to swallow nearby enemies and spit them out as makeshift projectiles against other foes. This skill can also be used to carry certain objects, like keys to open locked doors. Some of the enemies can't be eaten, and have to be killed with a spit shot. Frogatto can reach high places by sticking to a wall for a few seconds, and using it as a platform to jump to the opposite side. The progress can be saved in the outhouses found every few levels. There's an integrated editor to create custom levels.
