App description: In 1993 the world witnessed the birth of a new type of super hero. Now, twenty years later, Superfrog is back!

In the greatest traditions of fairy tales our story sees a handsome prince turned into a slimy frog by an evil and jealous witch who, in turn, kidnaps the prince's bride to be and heads for the hills. Our little green friend happens upon a mystery potion (wow, how lucky was that?). Chugging on the vial, the frog prince is bestowed with amazing powers.

Determined to defeat the witch our hero sets out on an adventure that, with your help, will lead him to his true love.
You must explore and traverse 24 finely crafted levels and additional boss levels across 6 differently-themed worlds. The goal of each level is to collect a set number of coins, and then reach the exit. The ultimate aim, as ever, is to save the day, beat the witch and get the girl.

The game is an updated version of the classic side-scrolling, 2D platformer. Superfrog HD has been re-imagined with enhanced high definition cartoon style graphics. Gameplay has been made fairer, but for those who like a challenge the original maps are in there to unlock as well!

Features:
Enhanced HD graphics
24 new levels based on the original designs
6 differently themed worlds
Classic arcade platform gameplay
Frog Trials Endless Runner mode

Looking forward to this, was nervous it might have been the usual type of runner game but looks a traditional platformer. Second i can see some left/right icons on screen i'll be buying this later !

Pretty sure this is a port of the PC platformer, not some new runner. If that is the case, this is a day one purchase for me!

Looks like it's a remake of an old platformer, and that they have added an "endless runner" mode as a bonus.

Didn't know the Worms developer made a platformer. Plan on giving this a try tonight. One concern based on San's video is that it looks the screen background moves by so fast that it could lead to headaches for those of us prone to migraines.
