Published in Home Computing Weekly #25

This is Micro Power's version of the amphibian arcade classic, which places ou in control of a somewhat misshapen frog.

Points are awarded for each successful move and for each Frog delivered safely home. Bonus points are awarded for swift completion of each phase, when a family of six frogs are all home. Each phase becomes progressively more difficult.

The game is well presented with concise instructions on the cassette insert. The instructions are also included within the program.

Use of graphics and sound is excellent. Most pleasing is the ability to be able to switch off the background Beethoven. I found one small bug in that the Escape key does not appear to be fully error-trapped. Try it and see!
