Frogger (NES, JungleTac)
A licensed port of Frogger on not-so-licensed Famiclone hardware. It is not backwards-compatible with an original NES/Famicom; however, it was exclusively released on plug & plays and proprietary handheld devices.
Controller and RAM Test
Accessed by holding A + B as the game enters the main Frogger title screen. The screen pictured appears glitched at the top, likely due to it being hacked up and re-released so many times...
This version of Frogger has been republished several times, with some revisions having differences from each other. Here are the known alternate versions of the game:
- VT03 version 1 - Featured in the original Frogger TV Arcade by Majesco. The A and B buttons can make Frogger jump forward. There are several copyright screens at the beginning before reaching the title screen.
- VT03 version 2 - Included in Konami Collector's Series - Arcade Advanced, also released by Majesco. Identical to their other release save for cutting out the copyright screens (though they are still present in the coding).
- VT09 version 1 - Included in the NJ Pocket series of handhelds. Only the B button can make Frogger jump forward; the A button no longer works. No copyright screens.
- VT09 version 2 - The version found in the MSI Entertainment Frogger system. Both A and B buttons function. One copyright screen.
- Unknown hardware version - Mini arcade machine released as part of Basic Fun's "Arcade Classics" line. It features an entirely different soundtrack; this was seemingly done using some sort of extra, non-NES device, evident by the music saving its place when the volume is turned off/on. One copyright screen.
