Floated off the screen on a turtle and came back floating on nothing... also game went to blue then green (1st level, then 2nd level). At least it wasn’t that far in 🙄

I had the floating on nothing thing happen to me with the Frog one game,I just watched him go till I ran out of time. It was hilarious!😄

What I didnt know about Frogger was you can stay on a log and ride it through the screen to the other side.

Is that how it was programmed and do all versions let you do that?

That's specific to skill 1 & 2 of this version (at least according to the manual). It's the only version I know of that allows for that. Pretty cool to change things up.

If you play games 3 or 4, you can't do it, going off the side kills the frog.

 

Also part of the INTV rule, if you have a bug, DOCUMENT IT!!!! It's now a feature, not a bug as a result :)

..... (just don't sit on the last turtle as the otter often grabs you if you do!) 

Can the otter only grab you if you're on certain turtles in the bunch?  Am I safe on the middle or front?  I didn't read the manual on this one yet.

As far as I know, they can only get you if you’re on the end turtle which they would hit. Of course, I wouldn’t put it past a glitch to prove us otherwise...

Good to know, not that it will help my score much 😁

Otters always come from behind in the direction of flow for their lane. Stay on the front of whatever you're on and you should be okay. If midway between two turtles, jump to the front.

That's my understanding of it as well.

The otter ends when it hits the edge of the item. If the frog overlaps on ANY part your dead... What mostly gets me is when you wrap around the screen you can easily get nailed by the otter on the edge of the screen as it'll redraw over and over the otter until it gets a clean run.
