Been playing for the last hour or so, think I can do a lot better now I am over the hurdle in this game;) (well for me anyway)

screenshot later as I couldn't be ****ed crawling under the pinball to plug in the mouse, we seem to be bouncing from Vertical to Horizontal. Mental note need to buy a another trackball mouse.

Edit : also do people notice sometimes the cars don't speed up till a lot later stages and then sometimes they do it it on the second or third. I seem to notice the quicker I get frog home the later the the cars start speeding could be wrong though.

I played this mostly on the atari 2600, though I did play a bit in the cades and since on Mame & 48, so no excuses but it is pissing me off that I get killed for no apparent reason :o - i'm playing on the 48.

Score is around 15k - I better go save some frogs!

Ahhh let me clear that up..........although sometimes I do regret having to go to work, it has not lead me to kill myself as yet.

What I meant was I was having a good go at hopping my frog across the road, and I was taking too long, thus making me late for work, so I had to end the game :)

Now I'm back from work and aiming for a 50k + score

The collision detection is a bit rough at times, but you do get used to it and eventually find it predictable. Timing of multiple hops gets easier also, so you don't jump one spot too far.

Ok! I've tried but i'm not getting any better :x

As DK pointed out - the quicker you are, the later things speed up - your right there mate, it seems to me if you let 1 or 2 frogs go over the limit (mabye it's combined) i'm roadkill.

Some of the collision bugs i'm getting used to :Like when your on the left of a log '& leap forward (FROGGER tm) thinks you lept left :unsure .Thinking about it Sega never did get that right. So whats the secret? the WR is 620k i'm hoping things get easier past round 5 ??

Once you get over level 5 it goes back to level 1 :p

With DKong releasing the big secret I had another crack this morning. What a difference getting past level 5 makes! I was more conservative this time thinking that once I beat 5 it would get easier rather than simply trying to max out points before I inevitably died as the levels got harder.

Can't thank DK enough or I'd have given up at my last score. :cool:

Do you have the hiscore dat file in your mame folder. Pretty easy to do just download the file and put it in your MAME folder. Will stop this kind of thing happening again:)
