5th Avenue Frogger Is the Coolest Thing We Atari Geeks Have Seen All Day [Video]

Olden Lore

Surely some of you are from the earlier part of the 1980s and can appreciate a little game called Frogger. Seeing it now is a trip down memory lane, and it holds a special place in my heart as one of the roughly five video games I can actually play. If I could just get my Atari 5200 controllers to work! Blast those things. Anyway, this version of Frogger is slightly different than the classic one. In fact, besides something involving actual (and ill-fated) frogs, it’s the closest thing we can get to Frogger IRL. Developed by Tyler DeAngelo, 5th Avenue Frogger is the original game, hacked, with the cars programmed according to actual New York City traffic on 5th Avenue. (Spoiler: The frogs die — fast.)
