Frogger 2 (Nintendo 64)
|This game was never completed and/or given a public release.|
As a result of this, keep in mind that the developers might have used or deleted some of the content featured here, had the game actually been released.
Following the okayish 1997 Frogger reboot, Interactive Studios began development on Frogger 2 for the N64, set to be released with the other versions of the game. Unfortunately, it was cancelled and the console was left without its needed dose of amphibian vehicle-dodging action.
This prototype build was released by Team CARROT on October 23, 2005. It includes two levels, a faithful port of the original arcade version (!), and a fancy set of development tools. It's also completely devoid of sound.

- C-Up - changes the font to the one in the second picture.

Starts a new game in the Docks level. Likely would have been used to record inputs to be played back for a demo.
A broken level select, as in "picking any of the options crashes the game". Boo. Different stages can be toggled with L and R.
The 11th model bank, LANGUAGE SELECT, contains a model of a pond surrounded by a forest. As the bank's name implies, this might have been used for a language selection screen.
