National Game Registry 1981: Frogger

FROGGER
original platform
arcade
developer/publisher
Konami

Frogger has his hands full with his simple task of traversing a street and then a river to hole up on the opposite bank.  As Frogger attempts to make his way in the world, he is constantly threatened by maniacal drivers, sinking turtles, and ravenous crocodilians.  Despite being an amphibian, any contact with water is fatal to Frogger so timing his jumps correctly is crucial.  Successfully guiding Frogger to each of the frogholes on the far bank of the river advances the game to the next screen where Frogger can do it all over again.

Frogger was inducted on May 16th, 2009.
