Frogger Decades (Konami)



2011 marks the 30th anniversary of Frogger's 1981 arcade debut, and while being 30 years old is reason enough to celebrate for anyone (let alone the worlds most beloved frog next to Kermit), we thought how would it be if we cut him a break from eternally wandering back and forth through traffic on a single screen, and instead gave him a chance to really stretch his frog legs -while staying true to the hop-till-you-drop gameplay style of the original?

And so thanks to Konami we're very pleased announce the imminent release of 'Frogger Decades' for kids young and old - an original vertically scrolling 3D adventure where Frogger needs your help to make his way out of the swamp, through the city and into the strange lands beyond in time for the surprise birthday celebrations planned by his friends.

The first all NEW Frogger game designed specifically for iOS, 'Frogger Decades' features 10 challenging levels set in five beautiful worlds, new frog related power-ups, buttonless multi-touch (or classic DPad) controls, original music compositions by hollywood composer Alex Khaskin, and beautifully animated cut scenes.

(iPhone Screens)






An entirely new twist on the classic Frogger theme, designed from the ground up for iOS and todays iPhone/iPad gamer, 'Frogger Decades' will be available 1st September worldwide as a universal app for iPhone/iPod touch/iPad with a launch special of just $1.99

I remember my first frogger game...I was about as tall as one of the mushroom we see on the first screenshot back then.

It is nice to see a legend live on...

Excellent! A very pleasant unexpected surprise indeed. How large are the levels, by the way, and will more be added?

That's how we roll man. Even or me it's so easy to forget those screens should be shrunk down to iPhone size, they aren't iPad shots. As for the decision to do (another) Frogger, no doubt TA has its fair share of hardcore gamers and it's a discerning audience -and rightly so. But Frogger is and should be the quintessential casual game and is intended for non-gamers and gamer alike - young, old, male, female.
Given the chance to refresh an all time classic and work closely with Konami it was a great opportunity. and we hope everyone likes the results

Even better Konami are rewarding their loyal fans by making it universal and $1.99. We've included 10 levels spanning 5 worlds, a time Attack mode with their own dedicated leaderboards, 30+- achievements, with the prospect of a new gameplay mode and some extra levels if the demand is there.

Sold. Would be great if we could have endless play cycling all stages or just one. an arcade mode of sort.

Agreed. An endless mode would rock. I'm buying it either way, but that would be a great future addition.
