It's Frogger! It's handheld! And it's in color!

Unused Graphics

There's graphics for a countdown timer, but the timer itself is a depleting meter.

Unused Text

 THIS GAME CAN ONLY
    BE PLAYED ON
   GAME BOY COLOR

Compatibility warning text at address 2169, rendered unnecessary by the fact that this game actually does run on a monochrome Game Boy as well.

Regional Differences

There are a lot of regional differences, but they're about as exciting as the game itself.

Trivial change: the European version spells "Licensed" as "Licenced".

The European version's menu is more green and has numbers for the number of players instead of words.

US Europe
Do I need color to get you ready faster? Look I'm greener. Will that make you get ready faster?

Frogger is more green in the European version.

"YOUR SCORE" is moved way to the left and your score is aligned with the other high scores in the European version.

Revisional Differences

Hmmm...
To do:
Revision 2

In the US, the game got a revision, this time published by Hasbro Interactive. It replaced all the clipart-esque and really boring screens of the original version with ones based on the box art to give the game more polish and make it look less like the SNES and Genesis versions. The copyright screen was also changed to yellow and red. Other than that, the gameplay is exactly the same.

Original Rev 1
I should probably be careful about that truck behind me. HELP ME LORD

The title screen was changed to look more like the cover art.

Original Rev 1
The most appealing colors in the world. Let's Go To McDonalds

The copyright screen's colors were changed to red and yellow.

Original Rev 1
Eh... these guys are pretty lame. Just look at what they've made. Froggergbc revbcredits.PNG

Frogger on the credits screen was changed to... that. Also Morning Star Multimedia is credited here. Neat!

Original Rev 1
I don't have all day you know. Hey kids, get ready!

Frogger was changed and the background was turned to black.

Original Rev 1
Screw you all. Aww shucks.

The new Frogger was poorly pasted over the original game over screen.
