A RETRO CLASSIC REBORN
In 1993 the world witnessed the birth of a new type of super hero. Now, twenty years later, Superfrog is back!
But wait! Before you get all gooey-eyed, Superfrog HD isn’t just some quick and easy port of the 16-bit version but with fancy graphics! It’s a complete re-imagining with tweaked gameplay, reworked levels and, of course, enhanced high definition cartoon style artwork. A nod to the 16-bit platformers of old, Superfrog HD is a retro classic reborn.
In the greatest traditions of fairy tales our story sees a handsome prince turned into a slimy frog by an evil and jealous witch… who, in turn, kidnaps the prince's bride to be and heads for the hills. Our little green friend happens upon a mystery potion (wow, how lucky was that?). Chugging on the vial, the frog prince is bestowed with amazing powers. Determined to defeat the witch our hero sets out on an adventure that, with your help, will lead him to his true love.
You must explore and traverse 24 finely crafted levels and additional boss levels across 6 differently-themed worlds. The goal of each level is to collect a set number of coins, and then reach the exit. The ultimate aim, as ever, is to save the day, beat the witch and get the girl.
The game is an updated version of the classic side-scrolling, 2D platformer. Superfrog HD has been re-imagined with enhanced high definition cartoon style graphics. Gameplay has been made fairer too, but for those who like a challenge the original maps are in there too.

It's been so many years since original. Playing this game as kid I don't remember it well. I don't have any way to compare it by myself. Still, I do remember some of level desings. Maybe they are not perfect in remake, but still old fans of SUperfrog would recognize some things. For those who don't know what Superfrog is - it's simply and cool platformer, where as Superfrog you collecting coins and other stuff to complete levels. It's not a long game, but still fun to play. Steam version of Superfrog HD have achievements, so if you are into hunting and 100% the game - you will have double fun. It's great thing to see that more old games are getting remakes, or they are at least getting support to be playable on modern machines. We can't let die classic games. Mostly they were the reason we became a gamers, right?

Superfrog HD is a HD remake of the two decades old game of the same name. The gameplay is similar from other platforming like Sonic, you collect all the stuff on the screen while avoiding contact with enemies. This remastered edition improves the graphic while still giving a retro look. If you're a fan of the Sonic series, be sure to give this game a try.

After 20 years of the original Superfrog release, we got the upgraded version of the game featuring enhanced visuals, new levels, game modes and achievements. It is not really a groundbreaking game by any means but it serves its purpose as a cute little platformer. Be sure to grab it on the next sale!

Truly fun game from the 80s. I really enjoyed this game when i was a kid. Now when i play this i feel like a kid again. Superfrog really brings back lots of memories. With this new remastered HD edition. I feel it really hits the right on spot. A good mix of modern generation graphics + the old retro feeling is just nice right in the center. Making sure to not overdo the mechanics and how it actually felt like last time.
The sound track is so much better now even though it may not suit many gamers but those looking to go back to your 80s game should definitely check this out
But i would recommend for it to be cheaper first then to purchase it on sale.

This game is great fun, although its almost 20 years old. The gameplay hasn't changed much, but the HD update went over very well, and the graphics look crisp and clean. Its good fun as a standard platformer, resembling the sonic series' gameplay aspects, while retaining its own unique vibe. Its quirky style of art and sound, level design, and gameplay all go in to making this a good retro platformer. A good buy for someone looking to get back to the old days.
