Frogatto – action-adventure game

Frogatto & Friends is a old-school 2D platform game, in the style of old arcade, Sega and Nintendo games. It features a certain quixotic frog.

In Frogatto, the world is viewed as a cross-section seen from the side. Your character (a small green fellow named Frogatto) walks and jumps between solid platforms, whilst avoiding monsters.

Run and jump over pits and enemies. Grab enemies with your tongue, swallow them, and then spit them out at other enemies as projectiles. Fight dangerous bosses, and solve vexing puzzles. Collect coins and use them to buy upgrades and new abilities in the store. Talk to characters in game, and work to unravel Big Bad Milgram’s plot against the townsfolk.

Features include:

  • Hand-crafted high-end pixel art including highly detailed 2D sprites.
  • Arcade quality music.
  • Over 30 levels to explore.
  • 4 different environment.
  • Game editor.
  • Compulsive gameplay filled with surprises.
  • Designed for the casual player.
  • An in-game store to buy items. Enhance your abilities.
  • Unlockable power-ups.
