About This Game

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Very fun game with a prince whose been turned into a frog and we must rescue the princess. There is a many levels and different secrets. The level of difficulty was determined on the average. The graphics are fine for this game. I would recommend for a small price.

Superfrog isn't terrible, but it feels like a knockoff of a number of better games. I suspect it's the sort of game that I'd really like if I'd played it years ago and it had more nostalgia attached to it for me.

This game is poorly designed, so much so that i finished the first level by literally just holding left, and pressing the lump button twice. no skill is needed for that, but to even attempt the game normally, you need to have the most precise movements to land where you want to, but the problem with that is its almost impossible to move one or two steps to the left, without careening too far off the ledge and having to try and get on the right spot again. Game is simply waaaaay to fast, level design and gameplay looks like my old project from my grade 11 game design course, in other words, so basic, bland and generic that all you have to do is change the sprite of the main character and you can make the game anything you wish, and nobody would care. Absolutely horrifying, and would never recommend buying this game, even for 20 cents.
