A RETRO CLASSIC REBORN

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

But wait! Before you get all gooey-eyed, Superfrog HD isn’t just some quick and easy port of the 16-bit version but with fancy graphics! It’s a complete re-imagining with tweaked gameplay, reworked levels and, of course, enhanced high definition cartoon style artwork. A nod to the 16-bit platformers of old, Superfrog HD is a retro classic reborn.

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.


Features:

  • Enhanced cartoon-style HD graphics
  • 24 new levels based on the original designs
  • 6 differently themed worlds
  • Classic arcade platform gameplay
  • Frog Trials – Endless Runner mode
  • The original level layouts unlockable (for the hardcore only, you’ve been warned)
  • Includes Steam Trading Cards

If you're a fan of the original Superfrog, you'll either be disappointed or satisfied by this version. The graphics, while simplistic, look nice, and overall, the game still has the charm of the original, despite its difficulty being pretty easy. I would recommend buying this when on sale.

However, if you belive this is "a retro classic reborn", you will be a bit disappointed.

Classical platformer. Bosses, non-linear levels, lot of enemies, two special abilities, secrets and tons of collectibles included. Recommended.

Wow this is one yawn inducing Sonic clone I'll recommend you to avoid. It has some things going for it. Superfrog is a functional platforming game with nice vast levels built for exploration. There are multiple paths, hidden secrets and invisible blocks (with coins in them). 6 'themes,' each with 4 levels and 3 extra bonus levels for each world since its the HD version. It is a good game for children I guess. This is an easy game. Very, very easy. So easy you can get 5 achievements on the first level. 5 out of 12.

Now starts a laundry list of problems that I have, your jump is very floaty. Very high and floaty. I understand that you're a frog, but it feels like there is almost no gravity. If the jump wasn't floaty enough, luckily there's a power up that allows you to hold the space bar / jump button in mid air, so you can slowly float down. There are a good variety of enemies, but some of them are just extremely small and either blend in with the background or one of the thousands of things you can pick up. There are so many things to pick up on screen at once that the enemies will blend right in. You'll collect bananas, gems, red coins, green coins, blue diamonds, cherries and much much more. There's just too many things everywhere. Like clutter. What do the pick ups do? Points pretty much. What do points do? Eh high score?

In the extra bonus levels made for the HD version, you'll need to collect coins in each level to unlock the exit door. It just seems like more work than I want to do for this game, even if coins are everywhere. Especially if the only coins you missed were in the beginning of a level, you need to backtrack all that way, hoping not to walk into spikes (instead of jumping or falling on spikes).

There are signs everywhere to point you in the correct direction. It is a very forgiving game with a small 5 hit health bar, but the real problems are spikes meaning instant death. You don't even need to fall into the spikes, you can walk into them and you'll die even if they're almost as tall as you.

You can run up and down hills, but your run never gains momentum. You can stop on a dime, even in mid air. There's no momentum or inertia like in Mario and other such platformers. The stopping on a dime thing might be helpful since there are usually enemies at the end of long runways and since you're a frog, you can't exactly curl into an attack ball like Sonic. Standing on a hill won't pull you down A hit from an enemy will make you flop over, stopping you, then make you briefly invincible.

Every time you turn your character right to left or left to right, the screen will rubber band back and forth. It is very jarring. not just that, but springing high into the air will zoom out the screen, then zoom back in when you hit the ground. It can probably induce motion sickness for some people. Spring boards can put you through rock ceilings, because there is poor hit detection stopping you. Sometimes it will pop you straight through to a different level. That's forgivable.

Each level feels like a jumble of ramps, platform, springboards and so on with a different theme paint. While the levels feel good, they don't feel different. Its not like how Super Mario World had water levels, and sky levels, and ground levels. This is just all the same, level after level, like a maze for kids. The water in the circus theme levels isn't swimable. Its just a background for fish enemies.

Even with a frog protagonist, this game doesn't do much with a frog. You don't use your tongue, there are no insects to eat, no trees to climb or swamps. No real super powers other than floating with your cape. The game just feels very generic, dull, uninspiring and boring. The only thing you can really do is jump and duck.

Maybe there are fans of this game that have some sort of nostalgia to it, but I'm not one of them.

Ah, the memories.
My favourite game from my childhood days. Nice, fresh graphics at the cost of mechanics (simplified gamble, goo and ice are not slippery at all, slightly changed frog behaviour while playing) and audio (not all of new remixed soundtracks are as awesome as the original ones).

But it's still fun to play, still very relaxing. It's still SuperFrog.

It's like Sonic without the interesting enemies and with no reason to collect anything. Half of the pickups are just for points. POINTS. NOBODY cares about points anymore. Controlling him sucks too. He has no acceleration, you hit an arrow and he moves, you let go and he immediately stops. The instructions are minimal: it tells you what powerups do but it doesn't tell you what they LOOK LIKE, some enemies can't be hurt, even if you jump on them, but the game isn't going to tell you that (before you try, at least). There are SO many better alternatives to this. Get some of the original Sonic games, or Rayman Legends instead.
