T.E.A.R.S. Episode 15 – Superfrog

Episode 15 of T.E.A.R.S. is here, and today I’ll be looking at Team 17’s cutesy platformer Superfrog.

This game was released in 1993 at a time when platform games were all the rage. In this game, the princess has been captured by the evil wicked witch, who has also turned our prince charming into a frog. However, all is not lost, for our slimy chum turns into Superfrog after drinking Lucozade (yes this game is sponsored by an energy drink!) and it’s up to you to guide the little slimy one through five worlds of cartoon platforming.

Is this game a mario or sonic beater? Let’s find out!

    Good episode mate. It’s Console Vs Computer platformers so it wouldn’t be a Mario/Sonic beater because platformer psychics are different? between the 2 system types of Computer and Console.

      Yeah the physics are of course slightly different to that of most console platformers, but it suits joystick controls very well as opposed to a joypad.

      Glad you enjoyed it mate. It’s a great game that every platform gaming fan should play.

    I am surprised this one slipped under the radar as i never heard of it and a great little title, look the part and great intro

    Good review again. A game I never really liked. It’s ok but like a lot of Team 17 games felt a bit bland.
