The Evening Post: The Secret of Frogger


Geek Alabama Evening Post

Tonight, I am bringing you the latest episode from the PBS Game/Show YouTube channel.  In this week’s episode, Jamin analyzes the genius of Frogger’s gameplay, and how it has continued to influence popular games today. The 1981 classic became so well-known for it’s static overhead camera that no game using the same viewpoint since can escape comparison. The restriction in view allowed for just enough challenge while still allowing the player ample control over the outcome of the game. What do you think was responsible for Frogger’s enduring appeal?  Enjoy!
