  1. As the spiritual successor to "Frogger 2: Swampy's Revenge," Zapper delivers more challenging action puzzle gameplay in a colorful, upbeat setting.
  2. The control scheme and presentation makes the game very boring to play after only a short period of time, not to mention that the story mode won’t last you longer than a day.
  3. Its short length and lack of visual polish keep Zapper well below the charm and fun of its predecessors.
  4. I personally despised the game, considered it nothing more than a waste, and would advise you not to purchase it for yourself. It would be much better in the hands of a raving 10 year-old that enjoyed Disney’s A Bug’s Life and that you need out of your hair for a few hours.
  5. I liked Zapper for its utterly old-school approach to simplicity and twitch-based gameplay, even it if could have been a little better on all fronts. [Nov 2002, p.92]
  6. 55
    As much as I wanted to love Zapper, I just couldn't allow myself to become addicted to any of the fun elements it had to offer.
  7. If you've played "Frogger 2" on the PS1, that's all you really need to know; this is pretty much the same game. [Jan 2003, p.136]
  8. The level designs are limited, repetitive, and visually uninspiring, while Zapper has all the personality of a last-minute stand-in. [Jan 2003, p.42]
  9. It’s gameplay is simplistic while still offering challenges and rewards that will keep kids interested beyond the Story mode. [Score for Kids = 80]
