It's great mix of Super Frog with Traps 'n' Treasures (also you can swallow enemies like in Yoshi's Island). But there is a problem after level with spitting flowers - game quits to desktop without any message...

I had downloaded the game to give it a try later, after seeing your post.
I'll report if I have the same issue (if you have a save game or a password, feel free to PM me so that I can try as soon as possible).

Have you checked Windows Event Viewer logs for error messages? (Win key + R -> eventvwr)

Thank you, but there is nothing in Event Viewer at the time I was playing Frogatto. Could you tell me how can I switch off or remove Microsoft Fax?

Thanks for letting us know about this cool game, I'm downloading it for Ubuntu now. Since it's open-source, perhaps there's a chance someone can port it to Aros, MorphOS or OS4.

For those who would like to try the game, be warned. Although I am not a veteran platform player, I think I can safely say that this is not a game for beginners. You can easily be killed and have some relatively tricky jumps to make (early in the game that is).

Sure, I'll just ask my father Bill Gates, he knows a thing or two about Windows .


More seriously, try the device manager (Win + Pause) and then be sure in the View/Display menu to select 'show hidden devices'.

I managed to pass the level you mentioned (without a crash) so find attached a saved game archive (rename/delete your userdata folder and unzip mine in its place) made in the following level.

Hopefully, the game won't crash for you after that.


Hmmm apparently, the source (and also the Mac and Debian versions) are available:
http://www.frogatto.com/download

So you can just download them and fix the issue by yourself (in the tradition of "no driver for your hardware in the linux distro you installed? Just write one yourself, it's easy....")



Edit: They have a support section in their forums, so you can report your issue:
http://www.frogatto.com/forum/

Apparently, the game has built-in error report somewhere. I suppose in stderr.txt ?
