Froggies review [iPhone]
We review amphibian iPhone puzzle game Froggies, a cerebral slant on a game of leapfrog
As much as we love to see game developers push the iPhone to its graphical and gaming limits, it's also strangely entertaining to return to simpler, more basic formats that dispense with the bells and whistles and aim to put the core gameplay at the fore of the experience.
That's not to suggest Froggies is without any bells and whistles, but it can definitely be categorised as a basic, yet highly addictive mobile puzzle game. If that's your bag, you'll love this one. If you like your games with depth and eye candy, look elsewhere.
Okay, if you're still with us, here's what Froggies is about. It's not massively original, but the puzzles are both immediately accessible yet ultimately challenging, and that's a combination any puzzle fan is going to love.
The game board is built from a small grid of 20 squares, with a few different coloured frogs dotted about the place. As with most games of this ilk, your task is to remove all but one frog, which is achieved by playing leapfrog.
Your frogs can only move by jumping over another frog on an immediately adjacent square. When a frog is jumped over, it's removed from the pond. So the trick is in jumping over frogs in the right order so you always land next to another smiling amphibian, and can therefore continue with the puzzle.
