Why did the frog cross the road? In Frogger, a remake of the classic Arcade game for the Super NES, the answer is simple: to try and cross a river that's on the other side!
Your job in Frogger is to guide five frogs across a busy five-lane highway and a rapidly moving river. You begin at the bottom of the screen and can move your frog in four directions: up, down, right and left. As you hop across the highway, you must dodge buses, cars and trucks that move at various speeds. After crossing the street, you will land on the riverbank.
The river you must hop across has three lanes of floating logs and two lanes of swimming turtles. While you hop on the logs and turtles, you must avoid the snapping jaws of alligators, venomous snakes and other dangerous creatures. Be especially careful while you are on the turtles because some of them are prone to sinking in the water. You can score bonus points by eating flies and hopping on log frogs.
Once you reach the uppermost lane of the river, you should hop into one of the open bays at the top of the screen. If you manage to put a frog in each of the five bays, you'll progress to the next screen.
This version of Frogger is true to the original in concept and gameplay, but adds enhanced graphics and level progression to the formula. ~ Joshua Hoffman, All Game Guide
