Default What The Frog (by kamibox)

Dear TA-community,

I am a single German Indie developer / designer and worked on an iPhone game the last 6 months. Some may know one of my papercraft apps that I have been making earlier, Tiny Paper Zoo or Awesome Paper Toys.
It is controlled without touching the screen, just by tapping beside it, making the frog jump through micro quests. Game Center supported.
Today it has been released for $0.99.

The bestest (yes bestest) game (if you can call it that) to ever (maybe an exaggeration) hit the App Store. The concept is you're What The Frog and you ate a pixel, which in turn, teleports you into an television (you know, with the antennas.) From there you tap or tilt the screen to jump while completing absurd missions. If you crash, you get rewarded by becoming something different like a pizza or a toilet. The game is a blast and I cannot wait to put a formal review.

It looks cool and a nice idea but I'd rather tap the screen than put it down and tap beside it? Seems like a strange choice of mechanic.
Anyway ill pass.

I think by posting OTT comments doesn't help. Watched the trailer, not keen on the gimmick of touching outside of the gadget etc. Pass

Hi oooooomonkey, the mechanics are really just a gimmick. You have the option to choose the Touch Mode where you can control it by touching the screen instead of hitting beside it.
Though, the Tap-Beside-It-Feature is received well by the reviewers, but it is not supposed to make any high scores.

This game is freaking awesome!

It reminds me in some ways of WarioWare, little snippets of quests as you go through. I can easily see cross branding with the "extras" (I won't spoil it more than that), but no one should just pass this by.

Is it Terraria? No, but it's funny and it's a total "WTF" indeed.

My second game had me trying to figure out the why behind a front loading washer.

Bio - dont talk until you've ACTUALLY played it.

And if the game is not working in touch mode, just pause and reduce the sensitivity to 0, it's not clear sadly...

Is the music from the trailer in the game?

This definitely appeals to my massive retro gaming addiction. lol
