Frogger Magnavox Odyssey 2 Prototype

Frogger - Magnavox Odyssey 2

Frogger is a 1981 arcade game developed by Konami. It was licensed for North American distribution by Sega-Gremlin and worldwide by Sega itself. Parker Brothers received the license from Sega for cartridge versions and so produced the cartridge port for the Magnavox Odyssey 2.

The game starts with three, five or seven frogs, depending on the settings used by the operator. These are counted as the player's lives, and losing them results in the end of the game, or "game over." The only player control is the 4 direction joystick used to navigate the frog; each push in a direction causes the frog to hop once in that direction. The number of simultaneous players is one, and the game has a maximum of two players.
