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!
Ahem. Ach-ha-chem. Sorry, had a frog stuck in my throat.
Superfrog HD is an action platformer where you run through levels, collecting items and avoiding certain enemies. It has you as the titular Suprfrog, trying to get to a witch to undo a curse on you. The gameplay is extremely dated though. It is a HD remake of the original Superfrog, but they didn’t do that much to it. The controls are extremely floaty and the level design is very dated.
The music is very much there. It doesn’t do anything for the game other than put it in a cartoon-esque style, and it is not that catchy either. It was honestly a little annoying.
Overall, I’d give Superfrog HD a flour rating. All the right concepts are there, but there isn’t much I can say about it other than it is a very cartoon-esque, very badly done game. I feel bad giving it such a low score, but there is nothing I found redeemable about it. It feels like it was designed for little children, but even they would have a hard time with the oversized level design. There is no one I feel I can recommend this game to, unless you want a game like this one.
