andyavatarTwenty years after he appeared on the Amiga, Team17’s classic Superfrog is leaping his way onto a HD console near you very soon.

Fast forward 2013,the new game be titled “Superfrog HD” and will feature a whole new lick of paint in the graphics department for his debut appearance on PlayStation®3 and PlayStation®Vita.

Debbie Bestwick, Team17’s Managing Director said that the company were

“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.”

The Original classic “Superfrog” was released on the Amiga in 1993 to critical acclaim and rave reviews:

  • 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 game play, 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”

The game is shaping up to be a must have for any serious retro gamer and a great return to form for Team17.

    He looks too bright bogey green now. I’m not sure that is good for a new HD sprite.

    I’m wondering if this will be a new game or a remake of the original. Either way, can’t wait!

    Sounds like a slightly enhanced version of the original similar to the recent alien breed release. Personally I’d like to see a complete remake with true cartoon visuals based of Eric’s original super frog intro.

    I’m a little blah about this. Wasn’t a massive fan of the original, although I did make an admission in one of the podcasts I did actually like it the more I played it but not sure this is really going to appeal that much.

    Alien Breed Evolution was very average a few years ago and fear this rehash is going to be much the same.

    Would rather see Team17 come with some new IP and become a force again like they were previously.
