    From the creators of Battle for Wesnoth, comes Frogatto & Friends - an old-school 2d platformer game, starring a certain quixotic frog. Frogatto has gorgeous, high-end pixel art, pumping arcade tunes, and all the gameplay nuance of a classic console title.
    Run and jump over pits and enemies. Grab enemies with your tongue, swallow them, and then spit them out at other enemies as projectiles! Fight dangerous bosses, and solve vexing puzzles. Collect coins and use them to buy upgrades and new abilities in the store. Talk to characters in game, and work to unravel Big Bad Milgram's plot against the townsfolk! At over 30 levels set in 4 different environments, Frogatto is not a flash in the pan, and has the play-time you'd expect from a real videogame.

    Frogatto was made by a group of big-time fans of classic videogames, who are hoping to bring back the magic in a new, original game design with unconventional gameplay mechanics - a fun break from the usual clones. We're a small group of indie developers, hoping this game becomes one of the definitive platform games on the iPhone - and you can make that happen!

    The character dialogue is well-written, and its 30 levels make it a fairly lengthy platformer, so at its $1.99 price point it'd be a shame to pass it up.

    Frogatto is a platformer with an old-school style, a lovable character, and some great level designs.

    Despite some frustrating control concerns, Frogatto rises to the challenge and is still a stunning platformer in the face of adversity.

    If you're one of my fellow, bitter, retrogamers, Frogatto will be a breath of fresh air in a world filled with motion control, exercise games and war simulations. Despite the jumping mechanics that may test your patience, this game is a lengthy, polished platformer that serves up hours of nostalgic, amphibious fun.

    Frogatto is a nice and cute platform game, which does almost everything right: it's not so great in terms of desing and sheer originality, but it's fun and engaging enough to be one of the best in its genre on iPhone.

    Bursting with pixel charm and offering up a vast, detailed world to explore, Frogatto boasts all the hallmarks of a truly classic 2D platform adventure without the spot-on controls.
