Frogger500 - A 1:1 arcade port for the Commodore Amiga via RMJ & JoeJoe gets an update

Remember when we told about RMJ & JoeJoe's latest project of Frogger for the Commodore Amiga? Well if you had the opportunity to play this 1:1 arcade port using the original Z80 code that he reverse-engineered & transcoded to 68000, then as of today you can play the latest update! A new update as a downloadable ADF, or with inclusive trainer for the WHDLoad version. To coincide with this news, we have some footage of the game that can be viewed below.

Here is what the creator says via the itch io page. "Frogger is a one or two player game in which players move their frog from the bottom to the top of the screen. This is achieved by overcoming a number of hazards without getting run over or drowned. The first half of the screen is a bi-directional flow of traffic including buses, cars and race cars. Players must avoid these vehicles. Frogs can move safely with the flow of traffic to make their way to the second half of the screen which consists of a river with fast moving logs and sinkable turtles. Frogs must hop on the backs of the logs and the sinkable turtles to get to the home base at the top of the screen. At random times throughout the game play a lady frog will appear on a log".

  1. Controller support now. Looks and plays great. Thrilled to see more and more arcade classics ported to the legendary Amiga.

  2. Some ports can really benefit from a bit (sometimes a lot) of enhancement. This is a good example of a game that a'1:1 arcade port' is ideal ... its a fun little game just as it is, sound is fine plus it has pleasant graphics.

  3. Yes, that's right, controller support is planned as well as loading and saving the high scores.

    1. High score saving is a huge plus. Wish all arcade ports had that feature.

    2. From now, the highscore will be saved with WHDLoad version 1.23.
