aka: Highway Crossing Frog, The Official Frogger


It’s tough to be a frog! Life isn’t all lazy days and lily pads – it abounds with dangers. In fact, ever leap Frogger takes could be his last! Can you help Frogger survive some perils, and hop Frogger home to safety?

First you have to jump Frogger across a very busy highway. Watch out for the trailer trucks! And all those cars – especially the speeding race cars!

Then try to cross a fast-moving river. Keep an out for the “lady” frog. When you see her, get Frogger to help her home. If you do, you’ll earn bonus points!

Jump Frogger carefully onto the diving turtles before they go under water! And don’t be fooled by the alligators that look like logs . . . Frogger is safe on their backs, but a free meal near their mouths!

And then, at higher levels, there are frog-eating snakes! Watch out for them as they slither up and down the riverbank and logs in search of Frogger.

Home at last! But look before you leap. If there’s a fly waiting, Frogger can gobble it up for extra points! But if there’s an alligator waiting it’ll gobble Frogger!

Get Frogger past all these obstacles, and you’ll jump for joy!

Frogger has just jumped out of the arcades and into your home. Sights, sounds, and all. Do you have the skill to get him to his home?

Frogger's first challenge is to cross a highway where reckless hot rods hurtle by, and huge trucks go thundering in his path. Every safe jump in this maze of motor and metal is a crucial step home.

Beyond is the raging river where the safety of a slippery log or diving turtle is all Frogger can count on to stay afloat.

Frogger's last leap to his lily pad home must by perfect, or it's back to the road to try again. Good luck. Frogger's counting on you.

Life's hard for a frog away from home. Cars would rather run you over than tap the brakes, and hungry alligators have been eating frog legs long before they appeared on our dinner table. Morning Star Multimedia undestands the hardships facing modern-day frogs, and they invite you to help our amphibian friends make it home to safety.

Frogger was a huge arcade hit in the 80's, and now you can rediscover the addictive game play on Game Boy Color. The object of the game is simple: guide your frog across a busy street, through a dangerous pond, and land it safely on its lily pad. This is a great port of the arcade classic, with graphics that are even better than the original.

The levels become more difficult as you progress, but the basic layout doesn't change. Like the arcade version, Frogger has a two player feature that allows you and a friend to take turns hopping towards home. First time Froggers will be surprized that such a simple concept could be so challenging, and classic Frogger fans will appreciate the game's authneticity -- including the repetititve game play.

Frogger is backwards compatable with all pre-existing Game Boy units.
