Lady Frog
Take a classic game, give it updated graphics and add a few new levels and you would have Lady Frog.  Only they forgot to bring the addictiveness of the original and the balanced gameplay.  In case you cannot figure it out, Lady Frog is a revamped version of Frogger with prettier graphics, new levels and more.  But it does not hold a candle to the original.

The first screen looks just like original.  Cross the traffic and get across the river.  Pretty simple to figure out.  I went across the street and easily avoided the traffic.  I then crossed the beach and avoided the bulldozers.  Not in the original but no big deal.  So far so good.  Then the hard part came.  I went to jump on a log.  Squash!  I am dead.  Huh?  So I get down there again and figure that maybe I was not centered on the log.  I do it again and once more I die (and a pretty bloody death too).  What gives?  So I come up and try something different.  I try jumping in the water.  Bingo!  You now have to swim and avoid the logs.  Pretty easy to do in the middle.  But when you get to the edge, look out as those logs just pop out and hit you.  Talk about cheap.  This game is the perfect example of a 1990 era game, a quarter muncher. 

After you finish a level you get to do a mini game.  Does it have anything to do with the game?  No, you are shooting at hearts.  Why?  Who knows and who cares.  And you are doing it in a desert by pyramids.  Makes no sense.  It is like they took two lame ideas and turned them into one lame game.  Wonderful.

The next level gets even weirder.  Now you are climbing a building and avoiding pop cans, darts and other stuff that is going back and forth.  Once again you can easily do it in the middle and it is pure luck on the sides.  After this level, I quit playing.  Nothing is more frustrating than cheap deaths.  Plus the thought of shooting more hearts is enough to turn the game off.

Lady Frog takes a classic game and improves the graphics.  It adds different screens and even a bonus screen.  But in the process it loses its heart and soul.  The game is a pale copy of the original.  Guess you cannot judge a book by its cover.

This is just a review of the arcade machine.  If you are looking for the actual arcade machine, you may want to check out ebay.  Click below to see if you can find this game.
