{August 21, 2007}   PiX Frogger: help the frog cross the street

Does the name “Frogger” ring a bell? Introduced in 1981, developed by Konami and distributed by Sega/Gremlin, it’s one of the most classic from the earliest ages of computer videogames.

PiX Frogger is a clone of the classic game Frogger, in which you must help a frog cross the street to avoid becoming roadkill by cars and trucks. The frog starts at the bottom of the screen and the only control the player has is navigating the direction for the frog to hop. The game allows 4 players playing simultaneously with the keyboard.

PIX Frogger is on the way. Implemented in Fénix, an interpreted script programming language, specially designed to developing and running 2D games and added to Debian repositories some weeks ago, it has really cute graphics and the visual layout has been nicely taken care of. The game in itself is quite simple, so it shouldn’t be hard for smaller kids to play, especially when they can compete against each other 4 at a time.

For more grown-ups, I guess it’s so cool to have a version in Debian from this historical game. I’m sure many people missed it. I hope it enters the repositories soon, but meanwhile you can get it from here. Thake care while crossing the street, though.
