Originally released in 1993, Developer Team 17 returns the classic game back to gamers in HD.
IT’S BEEN 20 YEARS SINCE THE RETRO CLASSIC SUPERFROG HIT THE AMIGA COMPUTER, where it became an instant classic. Developer Team17, who are best known for creating the Worms series are pleased to announce gamers Superfrog HD, a remake of the cult sensation for later this year – with new visuals and features coming to PlayStation 3 and Vita.
SUPERFROG WAS A SIMPLE GAME, but it charmed people with its rock-solid gameplay, smooth scrolling, cartoon-quality graphics, and optimistic music score by composer Allister Brimble. You were an unnamed prince, who got turned into a frog by a witch, who then stole your princess. You gained super powers by drinking Lucozade, for those who don’t know is a sports drink that yes, was highly commercially involved in the game.
SUPERFROG HAD A GREAT DEAL OF CRITICAL ACCLAIM. Here is some of what was said about the game:
The One Amiga – 93% – “With Team17’s impeccable track record I was expecting Superfrog to be well above par but it’s far more than that – it’s breathtakingly good. Everything about the game, from the graphics and sound through the control to gameplay, has been honed and tweaked to gleaming perfection”
Amiga Computing – 93% –
Superfrog is quite simply Team17’s greatest release to date. It’s full to the brim with great graphics, sound, playability and addiction. You’d have to be completely potty or hopping mad to ignore it”
CU Amiga – 89% –
Superfrog is a very polished product, possibly the best that Team17 have ever produced.”
Amiga Action – 89% –
What can you say about Team17? Everything they touch these days seems to turn into gold and Superfrog is no exception. This is without a doubt the best all-out platform game on the Amiga to date”
Debbie Bestwick, Team17’s Managing Director, says,
We’re extremely excited about bringing Superfrog HD to PS3 and PS Vita; it’s the most requested game that our fans are always requesting to see make a return. Now, with the 20th anniversary of the original Superfrog and the recent re-release of our classic survival-horror Alien Breed, we feel the timing has never been better.”
