Frogger Advance: The Great Quest
Konami, the masters of making games look bad, decided to repackage a previous Frogger game as a Game Boy Advance title.
Game Boy Advance
May 28, 2002
is a platforming game developed by Vicarious Visions and published by Frogger Advance: The Great Quest Konami for the Game Boy Advance released on May 28, 2002. It is actually a port of Frogger: The Great Quest which was released 6 months before this port.
Why It Sucks
All you do in this game is collect diamonds, and that's nothing special compared to other critically panned games such as
Santa Claus Saves the Earth and Catwoman. Clunky controls that makes
Sonic the Hedgehog Genesis and Santa Claus Saves the Earth look better by comparison. This game can get nerve-racking after an hour and can get boring at times.
The graphics are so ugly, even for Game Boy Advance standards. Even Pac-Man World on Game Boy Advance looked better than this.
Not to mention that this version is inferior to the original version. The game in general is just copied and pasted from Frogger: The Great Quest, with no new changes to it whatsoever.
Not to mention all of the story elements were not updated.
Along with not having any changes to this game at all, it plays and feels exactly the same as its console counterpart. Frogger is very slow, even for another game like
Frogger 3D, even if that game was released 9 years later. The ending is the same as the console versions.
Even though this Frogger game doesn't bring anything charmful to the table, the concept of Frogger being a pirate was a great concept, if it wasn't for the terrible Frogger design.
The soundtrack though compressed is pretty good.
