Frogger Question

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

does anyone have an idea what the beaver is for?

I read that it would possible to jump on it but every time I tried it I died (I used MAME).

To me the beaver seems to be an unimportant game element but maybe I am wrong!?

A beaver? I don't remember there being a beaver in Frogger (at least here in the US). Are you possibly talking about the alligators?

Nope I really mean beaver :)

Look at the row with the snake.

But you must be really left most than because the beaver vanish after reaching a log.

Well maybe you are right I have to check it out.

I found the manual here:

Apparently, it's an otter that eats the frog.

Thanks for the link.

Regarding the manual it must be possible to jump onto the otter ("Players can hop on their back (except the snake, whose touch is deadly), but they must avoid their open mouths.").

Anybody ever did that without dying?

Hmmm I forgot about that. All that I have played lately is the 2600 version!

Good topic- I've always wondered what the beaver/otter's purpose is, as well.

I played a LOT of Frogger in the arcades back in the day, and definitely recall the otter.

 

He would somewhat randomly appear, especially if you were on the very left side of a log. If you didn't get away from the edge of the log in time, he would rear his ugly pixelated head out of the water and kill you. Not as annoying as the snake, but a nuisance none the less.

 

Another random encounter in Frogger is the "waterbug". Every so often when you are on the water portion of the screen, you pick up a waterbug. You know you have it because Frogger turns somewhat red and white (kind of like turning purplish when picking up the lady frog). Delivering the waterbug to a lilypad would net you the usual 200 pt bonus.

 

There was also an interesting "trick" I enjoyed making the frog do in the arcades. When you reach the top log on the screen, jump right then left. The frog would do a slow, lazy jump. Not useful, but it was fun to do.

 

I just got my Mame cabinet up and running and one of the first games I fired up was Frogger. :D
