The PC version of Team 17's classic Superfrog is a faithful reproduction of one of the best Amiga platformers (minus the excellent Amiga soundtrack). The game is a good example of a flawless execution of a mundane concept. The objective, like in other games of its ilk, is to collect the required amount of coins and get to the exit in each level. Team 17 implements this very cliche premise well enough to really make Superfrog stand out in a crowded genre. You can kill enemies by jumping on them or by throwing a ball at them. Some enemies cannot be killed, so you will just have to avoid them. There are six different levels, all varying nicely from one another. The levels include a Forest, Haunted House, Ice World, Egypt, Carnival, and Space. There is also a bonus shooting level that's a lot of fun to play. At the end of each level, you can play a fun slot machine-style sequence, in which you can win a extra lives, bonus points, or a password. That's right: you have to *earn* a save slot in this game by winning the password in this way. After your wrists are tired from all that jumping and bouncing, you might have to do the level all over again if you fail to win the password. That's my only big complaint, but fortunately the passwords are usually not that difficult to get.

As one can expect from Team 17, the graphics in the game are excellent, with the animations bordering on the cutesy side. With huge levels (including even secret ones), great controls and playability, and an overall very polished design, Superfrog is simply a must-have for all fans of platform games. Highly recommended!
