The Scorpion and the Frog is a famous animal fable about how frogs are nice and scorpions acorns.
Bouncy Frog Go has no scorpions, but make no mistake. This is a casual game with a serious sting in the tail.
Developed by Abed Merhi, this polished puzzle platformer lets you play as a frog who must navigate a troop of perilous levels with spikes, dangerous drops, lasers and countless other obstacles.
The main mode is called Adventure and consists of 50 stages in four themed worlds: Laboratory, Forest, Desert and Mountain.
Of course the stages get harder as she progresses, and by the time you get to the end of the game you’ll have everything thrown at you from ghosts to spikes to witches. You’ll even spend some time flying a spaceship through open space and on a skeleton over a haunted forest.
Some stages are designed to test your reflexes, while others are all about using your noodle. Anyway, they are terribly difficult. Fortunately, the operation is simple.
On the left side of the screen you have a virtual d-pad that allows you to jump one square at a time in any direction. On the right there is a jump button, which you can use to cycle through three squares. And there’s a tongue button, which opens crates, pulls you over canyons, and so on.
Your goal in each stage, besides reaching the end, is to collect stars. You get a gold star for completing a level, another for collecting all the coins and a third, red star for completing a stage within a time limit.
You can then spend these red stars on Crazy mode levels.
Crazy mode is of course the other mode in Bouncy Frog Go. It consists of 20 ultra-tough stages with even more hazards to avoid.
