Summary

Good but not great

The Good

The frog-jumping gameplay is all there. Frogger is a pretty basic game, and this version captures the familiar action well.

Sound effects are good, and unlike most O2 games, this one has a title screen with a theme song.

The Bad

The graphics are very basic. I know the O2 is not as capable as other machines, but the graphics do look very clunky.

I also found the joystick controls a bit touchy, and it is very easy to accidentally leap up instead of left. My controllers work fine in all other games, so I think this is entirely a coding issue.

The Bottom Line

The game so good it inspired an episode of Seinfeld!
