Back in the 80’s technology was developing and video games were just being introduced. These video games or arcade games were very simple and easy to play. They did not involve any complexities or violence that games have nowadays.
Frogger® is an arcade game introduced in 1981. The object of the game is to direct frogs to their homes one by one. It is an easy yet addictive game for every person out there, no matter what their age is.
The gameplay involves moving a frog from the bottom to top and overcoming the obstacles that come in its way. The player guides a frog which starts at the bottom of the screen. The lower half of the screen contains a road with motor vehicles, which in various versions include cars, trucks, buses, dune buggies, bulldozers, vans, taxis, bicyclists, and motorcycles, speeding along it horizontally.
The upper half of the screen consists of a river with logs, crocodiles, and turtles, all moving horizontally across the screen. The very top of the screen contains five “frog homes” which are the destinations for each frog. You need to avoid all these obstacles to reach the frog homes safely.
The frog will find a lady frog swimming with the help of a log. If it can help the lady frog reach its home safely, it will attract additional points. By jumping on swiftly moving logs and the backs of turtles, the player can guide their frog safely to one of the empty lily pads. The frog can travel on top of crocodiles except that they should always avoid the open mouth of those creatures, or else they will be eaten by them.
The game has a time limit of 60 beats on the timer and must be finished within this timeframe. When all five frogs are directed home, the game progresses to the next, harder level. After five levels, the game gets briefly easier yet again gets progressively harder to the next fifth level.
Interface and Controls
The interface and controls of the game are very easy. You just need to use the arrow keys or the cursor keys to move the frog up, down, left or right.
