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. :'(

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Something that took name from a legendary Superfrog should really not be such a piece of garbage.

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.

I gotta be honest this is some of the most generic platforming I've ever played yet for some reason I cant stop. I guess the original had more style but either way the level designs are bland and generic. I mean at least Mario tries to reinvent the worlds around him with every game making it fresh but this is just boring as hell. Good news is this usually pops up for the humble bundle so get this for a buck at most if its on there

This is definitely worst platformer I ever played. Clunky controls, maximum frustration and very annoying music. Avoid at all cost!

Superfrog HD is a simple but enjoyable platformer game with a simple objective. You begin a level where you must find the exit. Along the way, there are many coins to pick up to add to your score. There are also monsters that can hurt you and if enouogh, you can lose a life. Each level also have 1 secret coin where you can look and find it. Find all secret coins to get an achievement. There are 6 worlds, each with 4 levels so that's 24 levels.

I recommend this game to those who enjoy classic Sonic and Mario platformer games.

Superfrog HD is a platformer with cartoony graphics and questionable gravity... It took me 5 hours to finish the game in one go and overall I found the game pretty fun, with a few flaws.

First of all, the graphics are nice, the soundtracks are good and the sound effects are so-so. The hitboxes are sometimes a bit decieving and after you get hit, you cannot control your character until it reaches the ground.

One of the biggest flaws is that the game sets the language of the game to be the same as your computer. So if you would like to play in english on a computer with another language well... I believe you are out of luck, because theres no options to change the language.

The difficulty scales pretty well, execpt for the last level which is extremely hard and the bosses aren't challenging at all. The game is also pretty different from other platformers, because it has so many secret areas and differents paths you can take, it's far from being linear.

Overall, I recommend this game to platformer fans. There are better platformers out there, but if you happen to see this on sale, go ahead and purchase it if you like these types of games, it was fun and it has some replayability for achievements, 3 stars, original levels completion, etc.
