Well, this is a very nice game with a good balance of play that isn't so easy as one might be used to in various other versions of Frogger. It's well done and thoughtful of what makes good gameplay. Full marks on this one Tricky, very nice.

Here's a hard-earned, but rather low score to start us off.

Ed...... :-)

WOOHOO!!!!
My game has been chosen at the same time as I'm off work for 10 days!
It's been manic at work for the last month so have had no time to participate but rest assured I'll be posting a few scores this round.

When you get to the levels where the crocodile appears in the homes, it is sometimes better to not leave the right hand side until last.

That's a cracking score, I haven't seen anyone get that high, I hope the game holds together for the rest of the competition.

I can barely make it past 20k, and what makes it more frustrating is that I know every death was my mistake :(

The game still holds together, tricky! 44,810. You really need to focus 100% in this game. Death comes so easily.

:shock: fantastic, and I thought everyone would be bunched around 20K!
Has everything got to maximum speed by then?
Have you got bored of it yet?

DOH! #-o

I got just over 20k and didn't think I'd be on the leader board so didn't screen grab... time for another try! [-o<

50k is just astounding! Hey tricky, is there a reset stage where the speed goes back down after a while similar to galaga?

Not by design, &ff ;) so 256x5 frogs saved, but it will probably mess something up ;)
Edit: it will reset something, but not speed.

I'm never bored of Frogger :) I think the final speed increase was at around 30K. From there on it's all guns blazing!

This game is usually pretty fair, but I still find it hard to avoid messing up!
