Frogger, first playable demo

Recommended Posts

It looks fantastic on a real 7800! I can't wait to see more.

On my TV (NTSC), the bottom line with the score is half cut off.

The top I have a few blank lines, and then it probably doesn't matter if one were to loose a little bit of the green, so maybe the screen could be moved up 6 to 8 pixels?

I am going under the assumption most tv's are pretty consistant at cutting off the top and the bottom though. Looks really good. I almost considered frogger (or tetris) as my April fools joke vs. Q*bert.

I got mine to work in MESS. Cool demo, played really well despite being an early build, I noticed some faults with the collision detection, but I'm sure that will be fixed. Keep up the great work!

Wow. This is quality.

 

Now someone please do a halfway decent Spy Hunter and Zaxxon and Crystal Castles, and it would be complete - as far as all my favorites go.

 

Well - maybe add a Defender port in there too. :D

Thanks for the feedback guys.

I will cut some lines at the top in the next version.

Now I know your next year April fools joke Ken, only one left ;)

I also noticed that the collision detection isn't perfect, I will improve it.

 

 

Frickin' sweet! I love that the 7800 is FINALLY getting these arcade ports it should have had back in the day! Awesome job!  :thumbsup:  :lust:

 

Edit: I've offically wasted no time in getting the screenshot posted on the 7800 arcade comparisons page.  :D

I develop frogger on a pal system so the colors on ntsc devices are not optimal.

I think future frogger version will have a separate palette for NTSC.

Btw. do you guys think a two player mode will really give a benefit?

I think a simultaneous two player mode would be excellent. Whenever a frog reaches the goal area (whatever its called), it could be colored to indicate whose frog it was. Alternating two player wouldn't matter a lot to me.

I second that idea! There are 5 "homes." Whoever gets three out of five wins the round!

:cool:

Well, here is a first demo of frogger.

Only one “level”, no scoring, no timer, no sound and some elements are still missing but it’s playable.

Awesome stuff. I'll second the vote for simultaneous 2 player. Whatever you do, please publish this gem!

Thanks guys.

Simultaneous mode is a good idea but both frogs would have the same color.

Could be very confusing...
