Frogout

DoraHello, chiiiiillllldren! This is Dora (aooowwww!) bringin' you the news and reviews of physics puzzles from all across the Casual Wasteland, and this week one of the kids from Vault JiG, Monzazart, is servin' up Frogout. As a freaky mutant frog makin' his way to a bunker to save folks from a swarm of mutated killer flies, you'll gobble down all the nasty little buggers in each level and use your tongue to both snap 'em down and swing around. Watch out, since if they see ya they'll try to take a chunk out of you too, and three of those hits will make you restart a level. Just click anywhere onscreen to shoot out your tongue, and if it sticks on somethin' you'll pull yourself towards it until you release it, or click on the frog, drag, and release to jump in that direction. You can even stick that gross ol' tongue of yours to certain objects and pull the mouse to move them around, creating paths. It's a simple idea, and honestly a familiar one too, but there's somethin' to be said for a simple idea done well and creatively, and Frogout pulls that off with appropriate style. Until next time, chiiiilllldren, this is Dora (aooooow!) bringin' you all the games... no matter how bad it hurts your productivity.

My only real problem with this game is that the environmental facts displayed at the end of each level are a little depressing. I mean, I understand that this game is supposed to deliver an environmental message, but can't there be more facts about the ways we can do good for the planet as opposed to the ways we've been doing harm?

Hi, Rygar. :) I think it's easy to consider it from the other side, though. While a lot of people read every day about reduce, reuse, and recycle, for them it might not have the same impact as realising just what their actions do to the planet when they choose NOT to do those good things. Sometimes it takes a revelation rather than a suggestion to make a difference.

Power of posting! Got it. I didn't trust the strength of my tongue.

I've just got to say that this is the best intro text I've ever seen here. Keep fighting the good fight, Dora!

silent george: in fact you're supposed to put the boxes on the truck with your tongue using the conveyor belt.

Thanks, josemfdex. Up to that point, I hadn't really tested out how bloody STRONG the tongue is, so I hadn't thought about that approach.
