There has to be a limit to the number of versions of a single game the market can stand and in the case of Frogger I'm sure we must have reached it by now! I was somewhat taken aback therefore to receive this one for review.

It is a perfectly reasonable version with most of the features you expect: interrupt-driven music routines, smooth animation and a reasonable playing speed, although I prefer the fastest version available (Croaker).

Snakes, flies, lady frogs and crocodiles all have their particular rewards or punishments in store for you. There are a few features which do make this stand out from the crowd, although I don't feel they are improvements. The frog does not change attitude when you change direction, there is only ever a forward-facing frog on screen, there are two rows of logs both moving in the same direction and there can be more than one fly on the screen at once.

Rather too late to catch a mass market and not the best available I'm afraid.
