Everyone in the world must know Frogger by now. It’s a simple concept: Get the frog from one side of the road to the other, safely. It now appears that everybody’s second favourite amphibian, the first being Kermit obviously, is getting a make over and heading for the PSN, and Wiiware, very soon. Frogger Returns, as it’s officially called, is being created by Konami and, alongside the usual high-way scene, you will now have to guide your green creature across crocodile infested swamps, tube stations and rat-ridden sewers.
“Frogger Returns will be 12 times bigger than the original” says Konami. That’s not exactly difficult but we’ll chalk that up as a plus. The second bonus for this re-imagining is that it will feature something that has been forgotten by a lot of developers as of late: Offline multi-player. So, invite your friends round and save the doomed Frogs from everything from Cars to Rats and Trains to Snakes. Also, you will now be able to collect power-ups, which will include elements such as ‘slow time’, ‘reverse time’ and ‘invincibility’.
