The C64 original is a blast! A real party cracker! It was just released in 2017 as a 4 Player game. You can even get it with a cartridge that holds the game and adds two additional Joystick Ports to a C64.
 
It is giving me a hard time to keep up with my ATARI STe Version!

Are you working with Dr Wuro with this release and will you be doing a physical game?

Yes. Even this is a 100% new GFA Basic code, I am consulting closely with Dr. Wuro. In fact he plans to redo his own C64 SID Tunes for the ATARI ST Version in a YM SNDH version. This will come with the full download release.
Just two days ago he played the ATARI STe Version for the first time on real hardware in the ANARCHO Ride Laboratories ;)
And he was very interested in how the AI Frogs are controlled, as the C64 version does not have this feature as for now. ;)

Looking into the Future it is very likely that there will be a physical release. And if everything goes as planned, it will be FROGS for STe + another brand new ST multiplayer game (!!!!) + the ST4PLAYER joystick adapter in one double feature box.
Keep fingers crossed!

This one is a pure 16Bit Port for the ST. The original 8Bit Version by Christian Gleinser runs on the C64. Maybe the game gets ported to other platforms as well? Lets see! :)
