A quick playing game like Frogger
almost surprised me with its battery-save, but few people will knock this off in one sitting. So, Frogger 2
supports up to 3 different save slots. Options for the game are really nice, giving you the chance to change music and sound effects, play as either Frogger
or Lillie Frog, and even change the name of a saved game or erase files. Also, you can choose to play a level through for practice, or even try story mode without choosing a saved file. This 'guest' file is a cool idea for those times when you have 3 saved games already and want to let someone try the game without playing one of your saved games. Especially because GBC is portable, I've had this happen, and it's scary to have some hack playing around with the save-file you sweated and bled for. Okay, that's an exaggeration, but you know what I mean... The only button that gets used beside the D-pad is when you talk to Tadius for hints. Everything else is just hopped over, and your hopping thumb will get really sore, believe me.
Nobody who ever loved Frogger in the arcade could help but like this GBC adaptation. It's a smart move, really, bringing this one to a portable. There are plenty of tricks in each level to keep things interesting for people that get sick of crossing roads and ponds, but all the quick hopping action is basically preserved here. Frogger is the kind of game that is always worth a quarter in my book, and now that Frogger is portable, he's on the road in more ways than usual... (heh)
