Another blast from the past, for all the retro gamers and fanatics out there!
By the same developer that brought you back from the 1980's these classic tabletop games: Astro Wars, Galaxy Invader, Blip and Invader From Space and others. We are proud to present Frogger-top, originally released as Frogger by CGL and Coleco 30 years ago. This was another very popular game to have in the home. Before home computers and consoles, this was one of the must have games.
Frogger needs not much introduction. Everyone should have heard of it. This particular tabletop version used a VFD display (a kind of LED) . They were before LCD games became popular but are brighter, and colourful. They don't make them like this anymore. These types of machines were made by companies such as Grandstand, Tomy, Entex, CGL, Tandy, Bandai and Epoch to name but a few.
This is an accurate emulation of that actual device. Screenshots show actual app version in action and original box artwork based on the actual real box. See how close to the real thing it is! Everything has been recreated from the sounds, graphics and behavior. There are a few minor alterations with this app version. - The game modes (A and B) have been removed as there wasn't much point in this. Instead it always starts on game A and later switches to game B automatically. The sound button has been removed as this is not needed. Everything else has been painstakingly analysed and replicated. It is safe to say that it is about 95% accurate to the actual device.
The object of the game is simple: Get the frogs home to their dwellings avoiding the cars and using the logs and turtles to jump between. You only get 3 lives so don't get squashed or taken by the river. The aim is to get the highest score.
• Optional "zoom" to enlarge controls and zoom in main display unit (ideal for Phone).
• Accurate simulation of the classic handheld /tabletop machine
• Full retro sounds
• Simple and addictive
• Totally nostalgic
• Supports iCade compatible Bluetooth controllers
If using with iCade or compatible controller, press the iCade button on top left and you can now use joystick.
NOTE: pressing this without connection to a compatible Bluetooth controller will bring up the keyboard. If this happens just press the button again to turn it off.

Tabletop Coleco Arcade Frogger!
This isn't a scam. It's actual frogged as if it were on a tabletop coleco arcade I'm the 80's.
Developer Response ,
Hi thanks for rating. A scam? Nope absolutely not. Glad you remember it. I tried as hard as I could to get it the same.
Perfect, faithful, and nostalgic rendering of the LED original. Controls are accurate, wonderfully adapted for iOS. All this dev's games bring a happy tear to my eye, transporting me back to the late 70s! Would love to see in the future more conversions of other Coleco tabletop LED games (pac man, galaxian, donkey kong etc) or TOMY games (digital derby, mini arcade, etc). Very well done!! Thank you.
Very cool, but controls iffy.
The game looks and sounds authentic, but the arrow directional keys sometimes are unresponsive making the game frustrating. Maybe increase the bounding box around each arrow so fat fingers don't have to hit the direction arrows precisely.
