Froggie - New 7800 Homebrew!

[size=140]It's been an amazing 8 years in the making but Froggie for the Atari 7800 ProSystem is finally here! It is, of course, a conversion of the popular arcade game Frogger. Due to a multitude of reasons this version by Atari Age member Schmutzpuppe has been on and off for years but is now complete and ready to play on real hardware via a flash cartridge or an emulator. The programmer is hoping to make a cartridge version available to buy in the very near future![/size]



[size=140]For those who are somehow unaware the original Frogger arcade game was released in 1981. It was developed by Konami, and licensed for worldwide distribution by Sega. The object of the game is to direct frogs to their homes one by one. To do this, each frog must avoid cars while crossing a busy road and navigate a river full of hazards. Skillful players may obtain some bonuses along the way. The game is regarded as a classic from the golden age of video arcade games and was noted for its novel gameplay and theme. It was also an early example of a game using more than one CPU, as it used two Z80 processors. Frogger is still popular and versions can be found on many Internet game sites. By 2005, Frogger had sold 20 million copies worldwide, including 5 million in the United States alone.[/size]

This plays remarkably well.  I love that it has music throughout the game, much like the Starpath version for the 2600.  :)

BTW, there may be a cart release of this game as well.

Going to the final frontier, gaming...
