Description

"a game that is so playable, so beautiful, and so stunningly out of left field that even jaded critics like us can't help but rave about it." slidetoplay.com

"one of the App Store’s true hidden gems. Ancient Frog is so unique, so gorgeously rendered, that I just have to commend the developer. It’s the kind of game where you’ll find yourself returning again…and again…and again…" 148apps.com

"This game isn’t just unusual to play, it’s also gorgeous to look at. Like all the best software, Ancient Frog benefits from attention to detail" cultofmac.com

"Ancient Frog has the unnerving feel - right from the off - of being the kind of game that toilet breaks were made for. And I mean in the kind of addictively brilliant way." chrisadampickering.co.uk

Ancient Frog is a wholly original puzzle game. The aim is to move your frog from one end of the screen to the other, to eat a delicious fly. You can only move one leg at a time, and only one foot can rest on a particular spot at a time.

There's no time limit. You can take your time considering your next move and watching the gentle interplay of light and shadow.

There's no move limit. However circuitous a route you take, eating the fly unlocks the puzzle. You can return to any puzzle at any time for another go, if you want to beat your own score.

You can skip any puzzle at any time from the daisy menu. If you're having trouble with a level, just move on to the next one, and come back to it later.

Each puzzle has a par, representing the shortest number of moves required to complete the puzzle. Achieving that perfect solution will sometimes require fiendishly twisted thinking!

- 100 unique levels

- 6 species of frog

- Hours of replayability

- A host of beautiful environments

- Soothing soundscape

- Lovely lighting

Stunning

:
I am completely amazed at the unique creativity and polished aesthetics of this app. My only gripe (aside from my own ineptness at solving some of the trickier puzzles at par), is that I keep mistakenly swiping the daisy as I try to stretch for my footing. Maybe a double tap would better suit the hint question mark and menu daisy? That's so nit-picky to really even be called a complaint, but it's the only one I have. Stunning work.

**EDIT**
The Daisy problem was fixed a while back, but I forgot to update my review.

5/5 stars

Worth it.

:
Tried the free version and loved it. Both sound and visuals are stunning. I'm a huge fan of the Naturespace audio app, and like their tracks, the soundscape of this game removes you from reality, and places you right in the middle of a lush rainforest. I was going to wait til this went on sale to buy it ($3.99 now), but after reading his blog at the website, I took the plunge. This work of art is a one-man project, and the result of his care and dedication is magnificent. I've plopped down $.99 cents for many games that were obviously churned out by the dozen. Buying this gives me a good feeling, not just because I love the gameplay, but because supporting talented developers will increase the number of quality apps on the appstore. My only wish is for eventual gamecenter support or achievements. Otherwise, this gem is an absolute must-have for puzzle lovers.
