Frogger is a classic arcade game which has been around for more than 20 years. Numerous ports of this classic arcade title have been made but nothing beats the orginal arcade version.

Frogger is fun, addictive, difficult, frustrating and great. The simple idea of guiding five frogs across the bottom of the screen to the top is simple on paper but when played it’s a different story. With only three lives to start with you have to guide the frog past a busy road and then a huge river. You have to take great concertration with this game because of the amount of ways you can die which can be extremely frustrating. These factors alone are bad enough but the added aspect of a timer going down also making you play the game with speed gave you even more of an adrenaline rush when playing this arcade classic.

Frogger is one of Konami’s best games if not the best. This game is original, addictive, fun, and difficult. The game is rounded off by some great graphics and colours which make the game even better.

Frogger is one of the most definative arcade games of all time. With great gameplay, originality and graphics this arcade game has it all. The game didn’t forget the traditional arcade points either which game it even more fun. Frogger may have been ported to nearly every game system in history but none of them are as good as the original arcade version.
