Edit 12 July:
Pleased to announce the iPad (all HD) version is out now!
http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/banzai-rabbit-hd/id380614706?mt=8

Edit 8th June:
Officially now BANZAI RABBIT. iPhone version approved for release and OUT NOW!
iPad to follow in a few weeks.

New screens.









Hey Touch Arcade community we're delighted to share with you some early screens of our upcoming release "Banzai Rabbit" (formerly 'Frogman') for iPhone, iPod Touch, & iPad.

Fresh from the success of our re-creation of the timeless laserdisc classics 'Karate Champ' and 'Cobra Command' (thanks to all of you who downloaded!), we've taken a break from working on the sequel to partner with Russian games developer Tangible Games to bring to life a new spin on a much beloved game genre - that of the rabbit/frog/chicken crossing the road to save the world from certain destruction from an evil flea genius while avoiding getting squished by traffic all so he can get his dream girl back.

Yeah I hear you, that old chestnut?! Well trust me this time it's different. Taking its cues from classic sci-fi story 'The Fly', super-hero smash-hit 'The Incredibles', and with a nod to arcade classic Frogger (3rd cousin twice removed), Banzai tells the story of what can go wrong when a rabbit, a flea, and two scientists -one good and one evil - all find themselves involved in a terrible cloning accident - or as we like to think of it 'what can happen when developers have too many cans of RedBull and packets of Doritos + a distinct lack of sunlight').

Banzai Rabbit features loads of gratuitous closeups of frogs, a diverse range of environments, all in full 3D, 50+ levels of increasing difficulty, challenge mode, online scoring, oh and did we mention it's on the iPHONE!

Banzai is currently working out and should be released into the wild in a few weeks time, with a special hi-resolution iPad version hopefully ready a few weeks later.


The New Trailer! Go the full screen and crank the volume!!

Wow! Love, love, love those 2D drawings. Think the text-layout (choice of font etc.) needs some work on that very last teaser image though, doesn't have the professional look of the rest of your work.

This looks pretty good, I think I'm going to hold off and wait for the iPad version. Is that going to be on the store on launch?

EDIT: Nevermind, I guess the answer is in the OP.

Default How many frogs does it take to screw up a lightbulb (moment) ?

OMG just when i was through playing Frogger, Frogger Inferno comes along, and now a mere 2 weeks later Frogger Pad just came out! We love us some frogger round these parts but Konami you are spoiling us, sooo delighted to see it's the exact same game but err bigger and oh oh I think I see a bonus new splash screen. <insert crickets chirping>

No seriosuly this is not an April fools joke.

Damn. I need an iPad so bad right now. Hire me as your in house tester please thanks.

Konami hasn't really treated the Frogger franchise well over the years. Leave it to the fans to create something that is more of a true Frogger sequel than any of the rehashes that have been pumped out over the years. I hope you guys make a killing on this one
