    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.
  2. As the spiritual successor to "Frogger 2: Swampy's Revenge," Zapper delivers more challenging action puzzle gameplay in a colorful, upbeat setting.
  3. 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.
  4. 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]
  5. It’s gameplay is simplistic while still offering challenges and rewards that will keep kids interested beyond the Story mode. [Score for Kids = 80]
  6. 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]
  7. 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]
  8. Its short length and lack of visual polish keep Zapper well below the charm and fun of its predecessors.
  9. 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.
