I'll be using my "skip" since I don't have this one. I will try my emulator for DC to at least attempt the game.

:sad:
this is one game I really wanted to play… I would love to see how well I could do on the 'slow' speed as I usually play on 'fast' and score pretty decent…

sadly, Frogger is a game that gets alot of "hate" and won't ever win a vote in the HSC…

5 people left, 2 of which are skipping this round. We need your unofficial score Sonic R! I forget, is 'default' fast or slow? Because I remember that 'fast' is really fast!

"A game may be "passed" if all eligible players don't have or want to play it. We would then move to the next game on the list."

Since this is one I don't own and zylon doesn't, consider this an option... but it depends on you 3 remaining players, and what yas want to do.

This is one of two games I cannot play right on atari 800 emul, feels like it's broken...

I'd most like to see Dig Dug, Ms Pac, Centipede... but it's the draw of the cards.

default speed is 'slow'
I'm happy to post a score to drive other players :) Frogger was one of the games I selected as I know it would never get played otherwise…

I do have a spare cartridge of Frogger if someone wants it... it's just the cart (no overlay)
I could have it shipped out tomorrow while I'm on lunch

I'm pretty sure I have an extra beat-up Frogger I could send out if zylon or someone else needs it.

I'd give it a whirl if I had one. PM me with details.
This one and Pitfall are the 2 I don't have on the list. If both players in question are to be getting the game, then I could extend the round accordingly. I could also bump this one to the next round.

I apologize for my error… I am at home now and just popped the game in to play…

Frogger on the Atari 5200 is probably my favorite port… simply because of the option to play using the keypad… for those who dislike the joystick/button combination implemented in the 5200 port, give the keypad a try! for those who don't have the overlay:
2 = up
4 = left
6 = right
8 = down

press 0 to toggle between joystick and keypad

actual 5200 Frogger overlay (yes, it is actually made of flimsy cardboard!)

here's a score to aim for!

My cart from sdamon arrived today. I'll test it tonight and will play if it works.

I will extend round to Sunday to compensate for time for everyone to get the game.

My free carts on the way from Sonic... looking forward to playing it on real hardware!

I need a bigger screen and better buttons, then emulation has.

Wow! This sucks. I can see why my 1st neg feedback was from selling one of these long ago.
I tried the original hardware in both modes and then my emulator without sound. Emulator was better, but not by much.

OE: 7880
Em: 7370

Frogger is best played at high speed clipping along at a fast rate... I use two hands on the keypad utilizing three fingers… with a finger on the 2, 4, and 6 buttons to make the quickest movements I am capable of!

I reached the 4th stage… and OH MY!! the cars move FAST!
