After loading the game for about five minutes, the game auto-runs and thanks goodness, the Break key is disabled which means that there's no way you're suddenly going to lose your best score ever just through a misplaced finger.

The title page is very impressive with a frog bringing on the title of 'FROGGY' in large letters. Four more screenfuls of instructions revealed the scoring mechanism and which controls to use. DJL chose my favourite - the cursor keys (5, 6, 7 and 8).

On playing the game, a full screen greets you with a busy road, a river full of turtles, logs and crocodiles, and five homes. The game is great fun to play with bonuses for picking up baby frogs, for finishing quickly and so on. Each completed screen brings a new, much harder one. The graphics are superb and very smooth.

Warning! This game is very addictive and will keep you on the keyboard for literally hours!

However, this is hardly a fault and, all in all, the game is superb. Oh, by the way, the price of the package is £5.95.
