Grasshopper Manufacture's first app for the iOS is a relaxing frog-collecting game? I don't know what to make of this, and I can't seem to find any gameplay videos either. I'll probably end up buying this anyways since proceeds from this app are apparently going to the Japanese Red Cross.

Sorry for the bump, but I just got all the achievements in this game but one and it's driving me crazy. How do you get the achievement that needs you to have a lot of critters on the field that a certain frog likes to eat? I've tried allowing each type of critter by itself to spawn a lot, as well as just letting them all spawn without capturing them, but neither triggered the achievement...

I got it by only having one type of insect on the screen. I did it with only butterflies on the screen myself. Just caught every other type of insect until nothing else would spawn.

Thank you so much. I just got 100% by doing this. That was driving me nuts.
