Contrary to others disliking the control scheme, I actually enjoyed this version of Frogger. Mainly because this is what I grew up with. The graphics, sounds, and controls worked well for me. A very well made game for the System X/5200.

The control stick problem was.. a problem. The lack of auto-centering made it difficult. We tried a number of ideas; the cartridge got the version everyone disliked the least.
Dawn Stockbridge deserves credit for the graphics.
This version actually traces back to the object code of the Sierra On-Line cassette based version. I never had access to the source code (the original author lost it..) so everything had to be recreated.
this game is a faithful conversion of the arcade game unfortunatly the control scheme the programmers used is annoying to move you have to move the joystick in the direction you want to move then press the fire button.
i can understand why they did that (non centering analog joystick triggering tolerances) and but its still not a good enough reason since dig dug and pengo work just fine and unfortunatly they
used the same scheme on frogger 2
the alternate control is using the keypad which is even worse as it uses 2,4,6,8 i guess back then they didnt realize that its easier to play a game pressing buttons if they are closer together like say maybe 2 be up 5 down and 4 and 6 be l and r.
trying to get both the lady frog and a mosquito in a berth is tricky and is barely worth the time bonus point value
