What I've been waiting for and my favorite so far.
Just by chance I discovered online that they finally released an arcade accurate version of the Mini Arcade Frogger. The next day I and went to Walmart by my work during lunch and found the last one on the shelf. I picked it up in awe and felt like a giddy kid with a new toy. I turned on the demo and sure enough was treated to an animated visual feast that is the genuine Frogger. No horrid static LCD screen here. Just awesome mini arcade goodness. It was rumored that a Frogger was coming out and I've been keeping a look-out. My heart broke when I saw the recent release of the Coleco style static version of a Frogger mini cabinet. I thought my hopes were dashed. But this version of the the Mini Arcade is by far my favorite. It looks and sound authentic and most importantly it plays well. To the makers of the awesome Walmart exclusive arcade minis, please make more! But please, please, please, discontinue using the static, choppy, unplayable versions of the games. Unless the game is (at least somewhat) faithful to the original, it feels like a slap in the face to old school gamers like myself. And believe me, if you make them accurate, we will continue to purchase them again and again!
My son (11 yrs) LOVES this game! He loves the 'arcade' game look. A lot of fun to play.
Fun game to take on the go. great for long car rides!
Classic portable game.
Probably, one of the best Basic Fun arcade adaptions. Frogger was always a classic, it's very close to the original game. The music is different understandably due to legal reasons. (The original arcade apparently got it from a Japanese cartoon, or so I've heard.) Tapping the joystick to move your Frogger feels very natural, and it feels very durable. The pause button is nice too. The graphics are nice, and the screen is clear and bright enough. My only gripe is it doesn't keep track of high scores, but other then that it works great with an impressive 3-AA battery lifespan, and convient portability, and perfect for a shelf or desk decoration too with it's arcade designs, and artwork.
Thankfully, Basic Fun didn't skimp out by using the cheap static LCD screens that they recently used on their Pac-Man and Asteroids releases. This is a relatively faithful arcade version of the game. I had to dock one star as I felt that the speed and difficulty ramped up way too quickly between the levels. All in all, still a lot of fun to play.
When I was a kid, I missed out on getting those cool Coleco tabletop arcade games. These new ones from Bridge Direct are great. SOME of them are great. Most of them are a lot like the old Coleco games with a segmented lcd screen. But several of them, Q-Bert, Centipede, and Frogger have full colour screens that highly resemble the actual arcade machines. I think it's because these particular games appear to be using roms from the home console versions....I think. I DO know that this Frogger game uses the old Atari 7800 version of Frogger. The only bad thing about the game is that is doesn't have the arcade music and uses the music from the Atari 7800 game. But even that's not that bad. It's just that I'm used to the arcade version of the game.
In relation to the other Arcade Classics games from Walmart, Frogger is on the higher end of quality with a full color TFT LCD screen. The game's cabinet is really nice with cool decal applications and nice paint accents. The box is very nice with cool Frogger graphics. Overall it's a very nice unit. My only misgiving is with the game's music-- it's not the proper Frogger tune-- it's close, but different. Otherwise, this is an excellent unit and worth adding to your collection.
I bought this for one of my nephew's. My wife is envious. I will probably have to get one for her too. My wife said my nephew played with it for it over an hour when he first got it. It was bigger than I thought. There are more in the series of machines. Nay have to get them all.
Junk. Turned on once, shut down. New batteries installed, turned on once, died again. Must be a short in the system. We also bought Dig Dug and LOVE it
