What Is "Frogger"?


Quick Answer

"Frogger" is an arcade game in which the player must direct frogs across a busy road and a river. The road is full of vehicles that must be avoided, and the river can only be crossed by jumping onto the floating logs and turtles that move in opposite horizontal directions. If the frog is hit by a car or falls into the river, the level starts again from the beginning. "Frogger" can be played on ClassicGamesArcade.com.

Full Answer

Depending on the settings, the game starts with three, five, or seven frogs. The object of the game is to guide the frogs from the bottom of the screen to one of the five slots at the top of the screen. The lower half of the screen features a road with vehicles moving along it horizontally, with adjacent levels of vehicles moving in opposite directions. The river contains logs and turtles that move in a similar manner. The turtles also repeatedly sink and float to the surface.

Avoid colliding with the vehicles and falling into the river by timing the frog's movements correctly. The game is played using only a four-direction joystick or the direction keys on the keyboard.

"Frogger" was developed by Konami in 1981.
