Overview

As you're checking out the Frogger Desktop Arcade, you should be hearing the triumphant sounds of angels ascending to heaven. That's because you have arrived at one of the most glorious pages on the Internet.

This is the page where you can purchase your own mini arcade version of Frogger. Through the miracles of science and nerddom, Frogger (which was originally going to be named Highway Crossing Frog) has been shrunk down to a portable size. However, all of its original charm (and awesome music and sound effects) have been carefully preserved.

The desktop Frogger arcade features an arcade-style joystick, mute and pause buttons, increasing levels of difficulty, and an auto-off function to preserve battery power (requires 2AA, not included).

Features & specs

  • Color LCD background
  • Authentic arcade sounds and music
  • Multiple challenge levels
  • Mute and pause buttons
  • 6.5" wide x 8" deep x 8" tall
  • Requires 2AA batteries (not included)

Bring Frogger into the comfort of your home and office.

Yes, we're quite aware that you can play Frogger on any number of websites. Heck, you can probably play Frogger on your cell phone. But, your cell phone doesn't have an arcade-style joystick. And your computer, as portable as it may be, doesn't look like a miniaturized Arcade machine.

So, stop trying to come up with reasons to not buy one of the coolest gadgets to which we at Vat19 have become hopelessly addicted. The only reason to not buy the Frogger Desktop Arcade would be to preemptively avoid the withdrawal sweats and shakes when you try to kick your nasty Frogger habit.

Desktop Frogger Arcade is true to the 1971 original

That's right, we said 1971. Many of you are thinking, "Wait a second, I thought Frogger came out in 1981. Must be a typo." Well, you, sir (or ma'am), are incorrect. Frogger was developed in 1971 by the University of Washington Psychology Department as some sort of prize / reward for completing a short-term memory test. Someone at Konami stol..er...borrowed the idea and released it on the Atari in 1981. Thank you, Wikipedia, for making us look oh-so-informed.

Check out our 1971-ish graphic below for some of the features of the Desktop Arcade Frogger. In addition to the boss key (mute button) and the bathroom-break button (pause button), Frogger features an arcade-style joystick and an auto-off feature that turns off the power (but doesn't lose your game) after 3 minutes of inactivity.
