SuperFrog is another Amiga exclusive game developed by Team 17 back in 1993 (for the OCS, ECS and AGA systems). The game is one of the best platform games ever created for the Amiga family.
 
Review
Super FrogSome Thoughts:
So Team 17 did it again. This devs team always knew how to impress Amiga gamers and how to make ST gamers left in envy. Superfrog is an arcade-quality multi-scrolling platform game that pushes the Amiga to its limits. I spent so many hours of continuous gameplay, having great fun and watch those graphics in awe. This is a pure example of the Amiga's potential in 16bits gaming, matching even the great Nintendo SNES. What a game!

Story/Gameplay:
Once upon a time, Superfrog was a prince. An evil power turned him into a cute -and super powered- frog who must start a challenging quest to find and save his love princess and break his personal curse. Our friend must fight his way through six different levels (such as The Forest, The Castle or even a Project-X style level called Project-F!) and confront numerous enemies (like bees, hedgehogs or even dead pits). You main goal is to collect coins in order to open the Exit door of each level. Drinking Lucozade (now that's funny), makes you super strong and lightning fast. Collectibles also include weapon balls, wings, items that will help you to shoot the other baddies or jump through spikes and dead pits.

The game starts showing an impressive cartoon-ish intro. You will be amazed by the game's colorful graphics (it features more than 64 colors on screen), its funny and cute characters, its great settings and a smooth scrolling that runs like water. The presentation is accompanied by some fantastic and fun stereo music scores plus sampled sound FX that make this game look like a TV cartoon show. Don't miss it!

Superfrog was never created for the ST! It didn't have the power to do it! :P
