Superfrog

Here is one game I never completed back in the day, and it seems the net doesn't have too many fansites etc

Does anyone have any tips/advice etc for playing this and any links/experiences with the game.. any background info for the programmers or any other info?

I finished it...IIRC there was a dastardly battle with the witch on the moon, and in that battle you survived by jumping continuously to avoid being killed.

I think the farthest I ever got was the Project-F bonus level.. but tbh I can't remember for a 100% certainty!

I'm definatley gonna give it a good blast when I get an hour or 2.. I really would like to see more fansites etc.. the Team17 site (is it Dream17) is a good site, but I like to see some sites that are dedicated to 1 or 2 games with a lot of digging and investigation work going on to find out as much as possible about the development of the games etc

It can definitively be completed without cheating, but you'll have to get lucky with the 'casino' and make good use of the password system. Tremendously rewarding game with difficulty curve designed 'just right'. I don't recall fighting the witch as being overly hard. Oh, and keep sneaking around everywhere, there are lots of bonuses, extra lives etc.

Yeah it was a shame.. pity he was so young when he started, if he'd have been older he might have appreciated the heklp more and mybe there'd be a good fansite

Argh, if Team 17 keeps it under lock and key, it won't ever reach new fans as well...

Do they expect to make a handheld version someday or what???

Which, btw, isn't a bad idea.

I think there's a Superfrog 3D project somewhere on the net.

I'm surprised you didn't know this one Bippy, it was done by the ProjectX/Alien Breed developers-it received an extensive WIP in The One-can't recall if it was the WIP or reviewed game but always had a laugh where Superfrog ran into a dead end on one level where the screen fizzles into a plain white background with a pencil beside it. In a little caption it referred to the artist being bored one night & drawing the background as a joke! There were also animation frame shots of Superfrog lighting up a cigarette etc. when you left the character idle, however for P.C. reasons these were left out of the final game AFAIK.
