Odd little game. Very lush colours. It's a FROG but they should have combined the inventory with the list because they way they've done it, it makes the screen too small and therefore the fragments to hard to see.

I don't think it's terrible, just a little too simplistic. It does have a certain fun factor though, and I didn't hate the demo.

There's nothing to really recommend it, but I bought it just because it's roughly along the lines of what I like to play and I'm always looking to save for a rainy day. Been stranded with nothing to play many a time and will be again, so it'll do as a filler.

It could be a first attempt, and in that case, I have seen much worse.

It's a cute game but not something for me Aimed more at young players or beginners I think.
It is interesting and moves along quickly but just a bit on the simple side.

Reminds me of the games I started with. They have come a long way since then

I suggest you try this for yourself. There are many great qualities.

Very cute FROG cherbtoo Far to time consuming for me. Very short on the patience lately!

Great Day Everyone!

Ok cherbtoo, you have my curiosity up. What happen to the frog?
I didn't DL this game due to too many bad reviews and being too short.

ANSWER ... Highlight to read

** The poor little frog had to be dropped onto his back in a bucket of cream and when he flailed his legs around he made 2 pats of butter but then he disappeared which prompted my comment as I thought it looked like he had sunk to the bottom of the bucket because the cream was too thick for him to swim in.

I should have remembered that all useful tools regardless of what they are just vanish into thin air immediately they have been used once

I had to use the hint button a lot, but thought the game was cute. I am a slow player so only got to getting the frog, time ran out. Will wait for real sale and finding out how much longer game is before I buy it. Thought it was pretty easy compared to a lot BF has came out with lately.

This game was the shortest in history. Was definitely not worth the money I paid for it. Maybe a credit for another game would be nice BF.

Okay...... now I'm curious, I'll have to download just to pay the 'poor little frog' my respects.


I'm back from the demo........With all due respect for the frog,I found it to be "quaintly entertaining" very colorful and relaxing.

Great colors. Not a bad effort for a first try of a new developer. Definitely not worthy of Big Fish. Shame on you.

I have to second this, incredibly short. I started playing at about 7:00 am and was finished by 12:00 with all kinds of interruptions. Probably 2 hours of game play total.

Just how does one tell that a person's soul has been stolen?

They stop listening to Aretha Franklin and start listening to Justin Bieber.




I think that about sums it up!

Finally! A Frog! But it's a loser I was so excited to see a FROG finally about as much as I tried to like it... I couldn't.

Hehe, great answer. Would be inclined to make anyone soulless.

Just about every one blasted this in the reviews, but I don't think it is that bad of a game, just not overly original. The story wasn't intriguing, but as Sheerija said "an odd little game...but with a certain fun factor". I had no problem in wanting to finish the whole demo. Granted I did use the hint system a lot, because though 90% of the items were easily found, that darned last 10% wasn't and think I was only that lucky because I have a fairly big monitor. I'm not sure how well the graphics would translate to a much smaller screen, but presuming from the reviews..maybe not so well. At least the hint recharged relatively fast and you didn't lose it if you needed to search in another area before being able to complete the one you are in. Without a walkthrough, I have no idea how far I got into the game but I did notice a number of complaints that it was too short. I don't think I'd pay full price for this one; but might consider it as a DD - it would be worth the $3 for the "certain fun factor" and I wouldn't complain about the length.
