Taking its cues from classic sci-fi story 'The Fly', all the best super-hero movies, and with a nod to your favourite arcade classics, 'Banzai Rabbit' (formerly Frogman) tells the story of what can go wrong when a rabbit, a flea and two scientists - one good and one evil - all find themselves involved in a terrible cloning accident.

Banzai Rabbit looks absolutely gorgeous, a comic-book-colored 3D feast for the eyes. * Touch Arcade: It all comes together extremely well, taking a classic mechanic and wrapping it around some new ideas and fantastic visuals. * 148Apps.com: If you do one thing man get this game! 4.5/5 * PocketGamer: 8/10.

Gamer Feedback. * Banzai takes classic arcade gaming, turns it on its head and launches it into the stratosphere. * Deep challenging gameplay, all wrapped in graphics that wouldn't look out of place on a next gen console. * Looks cute and cuddly, but 4 levels in Wham!! The rabbit hole goes deep on this one! * The iPhone receives it's first Killer App and he's hopping mad! * Pick-up 'n play gaming perfection. Still unsure?

    If you can't get enough Frogger, Banzai Rabbit is even better.

    With a funny storyline, 142 rounds of 3D action set across 34 locations, bonus levels, power ups and varied gameplay controls, Banzai Rabbit is fun, challenging and nostalgically appealing. If you do one thing for Johnny, man, get this game.

    Getting across the road and river in Frogger was always hard enough, but only Banzai Rabbit would make you come back again, challenging gamers to fine tune their timing skills.

    Banzai Rabbit doesn't try to conceal its source of inspiration, but the end result is a fantastic recreation of Konami's classic Frogger – albeit one with a few regrettable camera niggles.

    Ok, it's basically the plot from the 1986 film The Fly mashed up with elements of Spiderman, but it works pretty well in setting up the story for Banzai Rabbit.

    Banzai Rabbit is a good update on Frogger that I heartily recommend to fans of the arcade classic. There is more to do here, the action is frantic, and it looks great.
