Frogger is an arcade game developed by Konami and licensed by Sega/Gremlin. The game was released in 1981 and has become a popular and classic game. There have been many remakes and sequels

How the game was played[]


Frogger must get to the other side and into one of the five "frog homes."

The player takes control of Frogger and must get him past the cars and trucks. Jump on the turtles and logs and into one of five frog holes. One of the holes might contain an alligator or snake. Catching bugs and escorting lady frogs will give bonus points. Many ways dying include, hit by traffic falling into the river, eaten by alligator or snake, or riding a log or turtle


The game was developed by Konami and licensed and published by Sega/Gremlin. Konami was going to name the game "Highway Crossing Frog." Sega wanted the name to be something unique so it was named Frogger.


Cars, Trucks, Buses, Vans, Taxis and Bicycles- They go on the highway and can run over the frog. Dont forget swaggy P

Alligators- Swimming in the river and will eat the frog.
