I've been designing Froggia for years, I created an old prototype of it when I was just 13 years old and I'm thrilled to finally be creating the game for a professional release.

More info:
- Froggia will be able to be played with one finger (or the mouse, in the PC version). You could call it a 'one finger platformer'.
- It's stupidly addictive with a large number of levels.
- Ridiculously catchy music.
- Froggia will run even on older devices, just at a lower framerate.

Some of the story:
- The forests of Froggia are being cut down by the evil Psychotoad to make way for his fiendish factories! Freddie, renowned for his amazing jumping abilities (some say he can even defy gravity) and endless appetite, is out to save his planet! Freddie will traverse through forest, volcano, factory and more, chasing down Psychotoad to put a stop to his evil plans.

Gameplay videos to come soon.

I think I'm onto something special here, every tester has had trouble putting it down and while it has the depth and challenge of a full-on platform game, even non-gamers have been able to play it. Really looking forward to getting it finished and released.

I must admit i really liked Awesome Land, wish there was an option for this game to have the traditional left/right/jump/fire onscreen buttons though.

Seen too many devs come up with 'great new' control methods and then 3 months later add an alternative control method due to lack of sales. Think if people had the option it would be an idea.

Shame as i liked Awesome Land but for me i need to have touchscreen controls and no one finger/tilt/swipe type of control method. Hope i'm proved wrong with this one though

Our next game uses the same controls (and engine) as Awesome Land, so don't worry!

Buttons wouldn't work with the core gameplay of Froggia, it's a little more arcadey (there's no tilting or swiping, don't worry.)

OK guys, guessing over, here's a very brief video showing how it plays:

Sorry about the bad video quality and my poor playing, I had to use my phone to record this and watch my finger through the viewfinder! It's very easy to play!
