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

I'm writing this in tears, hugging my boxed Amiga copy of Superfrog, this remake feels and is worse than the original in most if not all its key components.

I get it we're no more in the chiptune era but Superfrog's original mods sound way better.
I get it that the original levels could be too hard for modern standards but ugh, just ugh.
The camera moving around makes platforming hard and imprecise, it hurts too. I was forcing myself into playing this game just to unlock the original levels but I can't because the dancing camera makes me sick (first time ever in my whole gaming career). Who thought that was a good idea?

Overall, sadly, this game screams cheap from every pixel, I mean, even the intro! It was animated (and on a different floppy <3) on Amiga, how comes it's just static pictures with overimposed text now?

Please Team17, I owe you my childhood, I get it that you're in trouble if not dead already but just stop butchering my memories with uninspired games and remakes. :'(

Oh the camera, I felt like barfing from the minute I started. I had to play through a little bit just to see how its design is. To put in a few words, the further you go, the worse it gets. Poor camera, motion blurred movement (very hard to see up coming obstacles), no direction in each level, unfair enemies (why can I only jump on the blue things O.O?) and the list just keeps going.

The only time I would recommend this game is to see how not to do a platformer.

I am going to go barf now...motion sickness is the worst

The camera jerks around, enemies often are invisible against the background - not to mention when you're moving at at speed - platforming is imprecise and unfair (pits often are out of the screen area before you plunge into them) and all around this game is VERY outdated.

they clearly tried to make a really generic platformer back in 1993 and gosh darn they did it. Tons of worthless coins and other "points" items everywhere. You'll find yourself getting lost in the level since everything looks exactly the same. Extremely twitchy and floaty at the same time. the Left and Right controls just stop working at times too. I don't even know why the character is a frog he doesn't do any frog things but jump. There are just no redeeming qualities here

screw it i dont need to type anymore. This game is Bubsy HD.

This is basically a mobile phone game now. Any nostalgia and charm the original had is lost because the camera bounces in and out too much. This is clearly because it's designed for a small phone screen.

The Music is just AWFUL, The sound effects are utter rubbish and generic. The original sound or an option for it would be much better. You can get the original music by replaying any of the 'classic' levels which you have to unlock. Any charming animations like superfrog spawning in from the original game is gone. There are Gems you pick up now? Not sure why though because it adds nothing to the fruit you normally pick up. The slot machine mechanism is so unbelivably poor now. They simplified it far too much to suit mobile. The hitboxes are wrong for everything. You can get hurt by something you're not touching. On mobile you might not notice but on PC you do. Using the spud is all wrong mechanically. Platformer wise it's sketcky occasionally whereas the original wasn't

Did Team 17 make the original superfrog? Yes.
Did Team 17 make this remake? I'm not even sure. It looks like they outsourced the developent to a third party app developer and didn't care at all.

TL;dr - Don't buy it, it's a terrible phone port and you're better off with an Amiga Emulator and the original.

It's... well, it's kinda crappy.

I was originally gonna write a really negative review for this, because the first time I played it, I got some major motion sickness. But since that was about a year ago, I figured I'd give the game another quick shot. While it didn't make me physically ill this time around, I still cannot say too much positive about it. What can I say about it?

WEEEEEEEEEEEELL...

Gameplay-wise, it's sorta like a Sonic game, but they did it all wrong. Where Sonic's running movements are based on gaining momentum, you only go one speed here, and that speed is, like, really really fast. Paired with a crappy camera that sorta shifts right and left depending on which direction you move, this can make you kinda sick, much like it did for me when I first played it.

Music-wise I don't have much to say. The stuff's kinda generic, to be honest. Like something you'd hear in an Android game. I guess it's produced pretty well, but it's just... REALLY bland.

The graphics are also a little bland. Much like the music, they remind me of something you'd find on Android. Again, the production quality is decent, but they went for like a really uber-polished look which is just... yeah... generic.

I suppose it's not the worst thing ever, but it's just REALLY bland by today's standards, or really by any standards. I went ahead and took a look at some video footage of the original game, and to be quite honest it has much more charm than this. That's not to say I think that version is any better as a game, but it at least LOOKS better. Point is, if you are REALLY craving games about frogs in capes running around sickeningly fast, go get the original game instead. At least it has some charm to it.

So yeah, not recommended.

Severe motion sickness, the camera cannot stop jerking around every time you switch direction, which when platforming happens ALOT.
Insane amount of pointless collectables
No movement other than left/right & jump

Superfrog HD is a good remake of the original, it has revamped graphics and music combined with steam achievements and trading cards, the only negative points about it are the boss battles that are very basic and the game brings few new things to the table, also a recommendation: you should not give up on the first levels, I was about to do that but after passing to chapter 2 I started to love the game.

AUDIO:
Probably the highest point of this game. The background music is pretty good in all the worlds, world 2 being my personal favorite. A couple of cartoony sound effects. Not much to talk about.

VISUALS:
Oh my God. This game makes me feel like I'm taking an eye exam. The graphics are so bright and colorful that it actually hurts my eyes. The HD upgrade to this game is not that great, and the game can get so blurry because of the camera that it ends up doing a number on your retinas.

PLAYABLILITY:
The camera in this game is terrible. It slides and slips all over the place that it gives you a headache from the eye strain. While this can be easily fixed by modifying the settings file in the install directory, it only ends up solving the problem somewhat. You also move so freaking fast that the instant death traps in this game can get blurred in the mess of colors and you can't see them. The game just hurts your eyes too much to play.

DELIVERY:
This game plays exactly like the 2D Sonic games. The gameplay just doesn't fit with the visuals of the game and it just makes you feel sick. The game is spectacularily easy until you hit the last World. Then it becomes a living hell. The secrets are very easy to find and there's no real reason to collect the Golden Lily Pads other than to get the achievement. The slot machine aspect could have been used a lot better, because it ends up being a waste of time after you unlock all the original levels. It also gets really old really fast fighting that witch at the end of every world.

SUMMARY:
This is game is nowhere near the $10 they are asking for it and I'm not sure if it's even worth it when its on sale. This game might have damaged my eyes and I might need to take a real eye exam after this disaster. Just go to GoG.com and buy the original Superfrog and stay far away from this one.

Decent platformer, although with some issues. Seems to be a good game for someone looking to speed run, although I feel as though the audience this game is directed towards is probably in the realm of 5 - 12. The presented story line is probably as cliche as it gets and it doesn't really bring any new mechanics to the table when it comes to platformers.

Poor platformer and the game itself is just... bad..
For the love of god don't buy this for yourself, only acceptable as a joke gift.

I 'played' it for 1 hour just to get the cards.

Never played the original but I got bored of this fast. Out of what I have played it seems like a weird sonic clone working off exploration insted of speed, which leaves me no idea where to go half the time and everything seeming pointless except finding the exit. Not only that, but there are these small little blue enemies which because you are running a little quickly you end up not seeing at all and running into for no real reason. If it werent for the fact I got this with a bundle full of much much more entertaing worms games I would be screaming for a refund as I had no fun with this game. If you like that kind of game, maybe check this out, but I got bored of the original sonic games and im extra bored with this. Now to clear it off my hard drive.

A faithful enough redux of original game. Quiet interesting actually, at first - it starts out simplier, but difficulty increases gradually and difficulty curve is much more smoother than in original, which is always welcome, because closer to later levels it goes toe to toe with original.
From the downsides - cutscenes are stillshots instead of animations, music is (in my opinion) a tiny bit worse than in original (original one were sorta brighter and memorable, this one a bit watered down by lighter instruments, but that also might be an upside, especially for little kids).
I recommend it just for the fact that it is a breath of fresh air from Team17, especially after all of worms games. (Srsly guys, they turning worms into madden, stop that).
Now if only alien breed remakes were at least notch as faithful and good as this remake....

There are many names in the 2D platforming genre. Among the likes of that red plumber man and the blue creature with 'tude masquerading as a hedgehog are lesser known beings, such as a flying bobcat, and a possum who claims to be named, quote, "awesome".

However, while Bubsy and Awesome the Possum had clear artistic meanings behind their work, I have not exactly been able to pinpoint the message behind Superfrog HD. Until now.

Buried underneath all of the average at best art, dull level design, absolutely uninspired soundtrack and generally dull gameplay, Superfrog HD has a message of it's very own. A deep and profound message that could all help us learn something about ourselves. The art and soundtrack symbolize low-effort work, and what that says about us as people. The dull level design filled with pointless hidden caves and inconsequential collectibles symbolizes how we as a people constantly take wrong turns into dead ends full of pointless garbage until we finally find our way to the one true path. Finally, the dull gameplay symbolizes the futility of Team17's struggle to create a good product people enjoy that is not Worms: Armageddon. All of this comes together to make it's greater message very clear:


Don't buy PC ports of iOS 2D platforming games.
