Amazing Frog? — Jump Free Review
Amazing Frog? is an open-world parkour game. Control the frog and run, fly, or leap your way through most complicated urban landscapes! Download Amazing Frog? for Mac or Windows and enjoy the greatest freedom you’ve seen in gaming.
Graphics – 4/5
This is the style you either fall in love with or get disgusted about. The game is drawn like an old-time comic book or a precomputer cartoon. It’s made in 3D, with a third-person view, so you can enjoy all the funny poses, moves and gestures of the frog. It supports skins for your character, and if you like it better another way, there is always a funny skin for it. Some may say it lacks details, but fitting such a large open world into 1 GB implies some compromise.
Gameplay – 5/5
It’s simple: do what you please and enjoy the process. The parkour frog is among the funniest things ever invented in the gaming industry, and the landscapes fit it, from giant toilets to frog prisons and shark lakes. The way you dress your frog is another reason to give it a chance.
You can move along this world any possible way. Jump or run, drive or fly with a jetpack, nothing is forbidden. Laws are not for frogs – except for physics. There are dangers around, from sharks and cars to police and your own carelessness. But you lose nothing when wasted; it’s just a reason to start over again.
There are some negative reviews on Steam, but most of them concern the early stage when the game really was buggy and half-done. Now it’s been refined, so it will run smoothly on your device, no matter if it’s a desktop or a laptop. It doesn’t take a powerful video card or tons of RAM. Frequent updates revamp the game, delivering themes for celebrations like Halloween or Christmas. Sometimes they also bring new jokes, and it’s great because the old ones wear out.
Controls – 4/5
Playing on a desktop, you can choose between a keyboard-and-mouse setup and a gamepad (if you have one). The game is equally good (or not) with any sort of input, but you’ll have to get used to its ragdoll physics. So the outcome of your input may sometimes be not what you expected. But, being a funny free parkour game, Amazing Frog doesn’t suffer much from it.
There is Amazing Frog for iOS, but not for Android. What you can find on Google Play is a fake one by a different developer. Touch controls work fine too. Alas, the game isn’t available for PS4 or Xbox One.
Replay Value – 5/5
Like most open-world games, Amazing Frog? is pure fun to replay. When you first discover the environment and the frog’s abilities, you open the world. But it feels just as great to find new tricks or enjoy updates with new locations.
The Bottom Line
If you don’t like quests and missions and prefer free exploration, and if for you the chase is better than the catch, download Amazing Frog? and enjoy it all through. It’s well-optimized even for old PCs and Macs, so it won’t sweat your hardware. But you are at risk of spending on it more time than you expected.Collapse
Humorous cartoonish game, Amazing Frog? is worth downloading, if you enjoy the process more than achieving results.
Pros : Large open world;
Low system requirements;
Specific sense of humor.
Cons : Open world with no missions to complete;
It’s full of jokes, but they aren’t funny when overrepeated.
