2 ^ | | 4 <-------------> 6 | | v 8OBJECT
SCREEN 1: UNDERWATER FROGGER
Alligators and snapping barracudas: In a word, "deadly." Don't touch any part of them.
Floating off screen: Floating off screen will finish Frogger off in a flash, so be careful about drifting in the strong current.
Little fish and tiny fish: These creatures aren't nearly as nasty as their neighbors. They won't hurt Frogger, but they can make it a bit more difficult for him to reach the log berths.
Joe the diving turtle: Joe is pretty nice to frogs. When he gives Frogger a free ride on his back, Frogger is safe from everybody else. Also, when he's with Joe, Frogger can't be hurt by drifting off screen. The two of them will wrap around to the other side.
Bubbles: Catch the air bubbles that float up from the bottom, and you'll earn bonus points. Remember that the bonus points count only if Frogger gets home on this screen!
Larry the eel: In all levels except Level 1, Larry the eel blows the bubbles from the ocean floor. Watch out because Larry can 'eeliminate' you!
Getting to the surface: Frogger can reach the next level in two ways:
a) By jumping into a log berth that's already filled.
b) By jumping onto the ends or wooden underside of any log.
Remember: You do not have to fill any of the log berths in order to reach the next screen.
SCREEN II: SURFACE FROGGER
Logs: Logs always make safe passage.
Lily pads: Lily pads are safe to pass on and you earn bonus points each time you do. (The bonus points count ONLY when you take Frogger home on that screen.) The lily pad disappears when you leave it.
Alligators: Alligators are as harmless as logs.
Baby ducks and Mama Duck: Baby ducks are happy to give Frogger a lift. But don't let Mama Duck catch him at it, or she'll come after him!
Hippos: Hippos mean well. They're perfectly safe to ride on, but in higher levels, they like to shake. If Frogger is on board when they start, it's into the drink for our fearless friend.
Whales: Take a ride on a whale. It's fun! But if it dives, under the water Frogger goes!
Turtles: Frogger is perfectly safe riding turtleback. Turtles have no tricks up their shells.
Sharks: On higher levels, sharks skim the lily pads. Frogs beware when you hear the shark warning!
Tugboat: Try not to hit the tugboat. It's the life preserver berth Frogger is heading for.
Floating off screen: Don't let this happen!
Super bonus points: Can you discover how to earn them?
Getting into the air: The ONLY way to get airborne is to jump onto Mama duck who flaps her wings and flies Frogger there. Just remember that she won't do Frogger this favor when he's riding with her babies!
SCREEN III: AIRBORNE FROGGER
Butterflies: Yum! Frogger loves to eat butterflies and each time he does, he receives bonus points (and ekeeps them when he makes it home on that screen). He pays a certain price for it, though, because for each butterfly he gobbles, a hole opens (or widens) in the cloud -- a hole that Frogger might fall through!
In higher levels Beulah Blackwing, the beautiful black butterfly, appears. Beulah is nobody's snack, so stay out of her way!
Clyde the flying dragon: Because Clyde loves those pretty little butterflies, he stays close by to protect them. He doesn't do this for Frogger, so don't run into him.
Birds: All of the birds are glad to give Frogger a ride. If Frogger should miss a connection and fall, he may be caught by a cloud, unless, of course, he falls through a hole.
The Airplane: In higher levels, an airplane appears at the top of the screen. Stay away from it! Little frogs are not meant to ride airplanes.
The Stork: Every 10,000 points, a stork appears at the top of the screen. If Frogger hops a ride with him, what does he get? Why, a baby frog, of course! The baby frog gives Frogger another chance to stay in the game.
Flying or bouncing off screen: Don't let this happen!
Falling through a hole in the cloud: If Frogger falls onto a LOG, he ends up in the surface screen. If Frogger falls into the WATER, he ends up in the underwater screen.
END OF GAME
Reaching a home berth........1000 points
Note: Bonus points are collected only when Frogger reaches a home berth on that same screen.
