Frogger was originally made in 1981 as a arcade game and was developed by Konami. It was a simple game that made you question why the frog crossed the road? The answer according to Konami was to get a high score. Frogger was noted as having the most ways to die of any video game at that point. Below is a playable version of the original arcade version:

 The game was later reimagined with multiple levels and even more obstacles in 1997. The game is commonly referred to as Frogger: He's Back. The game was published by Hasbro interactive and was one of the best selling games made for the Sony Playstation one. The Game had 33 levels and hidden golden frogs to find on each level. The new 3d Perspectives the game added was met with mixed reception from critics. The game went on to sell over one million copies for the PC.
