In this sequel to Frogger (1997), you'll guide Frogger and his girlfriend Lily through a series of immersive and challenging levels in an attempt to save his baby frogs from the evil crocodile Swampy. It sounds like run-of-the-mill Frogger gameplay at its core, but there's much more of a storyline in this game, and all of the woeful playability problems that made Frogger (1997) such a chore to play have been smoothed out. The controls are much more responsive, there is difficulty adjustment (which controls how many lives you have when you start the game -- the obstacles still remain the same in each difficulty level: Easy - 10 lives, Normal - 5 lives, and Hard - 2 lives), the camera has a much better view of Frogger, that stupid "time limit" was removed, and the obstacles were more intended to challenge than to frustrate.
Just because Frogger 2: Swampy's Revenge is a sequel to Frogger (1997) doesn't mean that you need to play that game in order to understand what goes on here. In fact, you're better off just skipping that game (as well as a whole bunch of boredom and frustration) and playing this instead. You'll be glad you did!
