As a gamer of 20 odd years, it excites me to see the release of a reimagining of a timeless classic. That's one of the reasons why my iPhone houses Arkanoid and Space Invaders: Infinity Gene - some titles just don't get old.
While Frogger is quite a classic, it has aged just a bit in recent years. So the prospect of it being revitalised is very cool indeed, which is fortunate as this is exactly what's happened with Frogger Decades.
Graphics and animations have been brought up to date in time for Frogger's 30th birthday and there's even a hint of a storyline. Frogger comes back home to find a map to his birthday party pinned on his front door, and thus starts a wild and wacky adventure to make it to the party on time. Five different environments are available with the memorable frog having to jump, hop, swing and dodge his way around obstacles.
It's the same classic gameplay that made players fall in love with Frogger the first time, just spruced up with a modern paintbrush to enthral once more.
Frogger Decades is out now priced at $1.99. Oh and it's an universal app which will keep iPhone and iPad owners happy!
