- Frogger -

Frogger is a very early game that was first released in the arcades in 1981 by Sega. You controlled a frog that had to cross a street filled with fastmoving cars and after that a river that had obstacles you could jump on to get across and into a safe place. Get five frogs safely across and you advance a level but touch any of the cars and you'll be as flat as a pancake. For some strange reason though if you fall in the water you die as well so apparantly this frog can't swim, maybe because he's wearing a tie and carries a suitcase (pictured on the original arcade cabinet).

Gameplay is very simple and you can move the frog in four different directions while avoiding all the obstacles. The cars move from left to right at different speeds and later levels will increase the speed and number of cars. The water part has you jumping on the obstacles and in the beginning there are mainly logs that move in alternating directions but later on you have to jump on creatures that sometimes submerge under the water killing you in the process. Sometimes the places you are supposed to reach contain a unfriendly creature that will kill you or a fly which can gain you some points.

Frogger has probably been ported to almost every platform there is and the newer versions have updated graphics and add some extra stuff but basic gameplay has remained the same for over 20 years. The game probably won't last you very long because of the simplistic gameplay but I suggest you check it out for pure nostalgic reasons as this game is among those that laid the foundation for all videogames just like pong and pacman. None of the versions here are from the same developers/publishers and some don't even show you in the game.

Overal rating: 7/10

My favorite version as it feels the most like the original.
VIC-20 Released in ?.

Despite being on a less powerfull platform this version adds more cars and more obstacles.
ZX Spectrum Released in 1983 by A&F Software.

This version is very difficult, I mean look at the large trucks and the small space you have to jump between them and apparently dragster also roam the streets as well.
Others There have been plenty of other versions released troughout the years some on the same system. The versions I at least know of are playstation, gameboy, dos and windows but there are plenty more.
