    Superfrog HD becomes exemplary. It's an old game but with the new stuff. If only everyone makes game remakes like this one…

    Superfrog HD isn’t a game which pushes the boundaries of what the genre is capable of. In fact I doubt it ever intended to. What you do get is a cute little platformer which I believe would be a great introduction to the genre for kids.

    As a traditional 2D platformer devoid of any twists and nuance Superfrog HD fails to attract those who played the original game back in 1993. [12/2013, p.69]

    As a big fan of the developer, I’m sorry to say that if you’re not feeling nostalgic of the original, stay away from Superfrog HD. It isn’t good, but worst of all, it’s not fun.

There's nothing really fancy or extraordinary about this game, but it does feel balanced all-around. I've experienced none of the control problems some other reviewers have mentioned, everything feels exactly like it should be. All in all - a nice platformer. I paid $10 and I feel like I made a decent deal. Collapse

    I remember this on my Amiga...
    It was a fun distraction then and it's a fun distraction now...
    It won't win awards for graphics controls

    But what it will do is transport you back twenty years when games were simple and fun and brightly coloured...
    Worth it just for that nostalgia

The controls are verySupposedly this is an old game that has been remastered. I guess they only remastered the graphics but not the gameplay. The controls are very choppy. Not to say you can't land where you want, it just seems to be on or off, stopped or running, no fine tuning which is pretty much a requirement today.

    Lots of levels to chose from and some interesting level design but this game is just for kids with the level they put into it and even they might get annoyed with it.

    Game is boring and easy, not to mention overpriced.

    I never played the original superfrog but for sure this remake didn't encourage me to do so. The whole game feels like a flash game you may play for free on your browser but instead it comes at 9€. And by flash game I mean it, the quality is the same of any average flash game.
    Animations are sluggish and physic, well, there is no physic whatsoever.

    So, well, again, it's an average flash game sold for 9€, cannot say anything good on it.

But Superfrog HD really is the most disappointing game of my entire life. As well as being a cautionary tale that, when you say "wouldn't it be great if..." it won't always actually end up great; for years my friends and I always brought up the subject of wishing to see a Superfrog remake, being huge fans of the original.

    All of that charm, that self-awareness of over-abundant commercialism in the constant Lucozade adverts, the charm of a game playing on the fact it sounds like a low budget idea (the impatient tapping from "Superfrog" as the heroic wind effect is absent due to the special effects guy being so distracted by his newspaper he hadn't turned it on)... All of it is gone.

    What we are left with is a truly awful mess of bad animation and "cheap mobile game"-like sprites, losing all the charm of the original design. Again, it could have been quite humorous if the game played on this idea and made jokes of it- but instead it plays it straight.

    And the music... Jesus, the music. It has turned very slapstick and forgettable. It sounds like a low-budget kids show. That the original soundtrack actually sounds better composed speaks dividends.

    The ONLY reason this gets any marks at all is because, actually, they seem to have nailed the physics so it plays exactly like the original. Everything else screams of trying to monetise another old IP on mobile platforms, with none of the love and care put into the original.

    However, the game taught me a very important lesson: NEVER hope for a remake.

    This game has bad controls and makes an overall cheap impression. BAD controls for a JNR? No way! This is an absolute no go for me.

    It seems that it kinda tries to imitate Sonic, but it fails.
