Emulation
Guides on emulating older games

Also known as "Frogatto & Friends", it was a HUGE undertaking made for retro gamers, by retro gamers. U like games? then U gotta see this! Started out as free and open source for PC-Mac-Linux but became a fee activity for iOS etc. The initially free offering was in order to promote the first game using its amazing new engine named Anura.

v1.0.x runs using OS X 10.4 Tiger PPC/Intel
v1.1.x requires OS X 10.5 Leopard PPC/Intel
v1.2.x may have eliminated PPC & freeware
v1.3.x are now the highest versions.

There are lots of bugs in the old versions and features added to the newer ones. This download is version 1.0.3 the highest in the 1.0.x set for Tiger. Although v1.1.0 isn't yet ten years old, I have tried it and crashed it. In a year we will need v1.1.1 which says it fixes crashes but it looks hard to locate v1.1.1 so be on the hunt for it. The screenshots here are from v1.1.0 in which the Arcade mini games are a new thing that v1.0.3 doesn't have.

Some things to know... In game Cntl^f toggles full screen mode, Cntl^e opens up a level editor, and you have the ability to drop down from the platform you are on via holding down arrow to crouch and then tapping the jump button.

Compatibility
Architecture: PPC x86 (Intel:Mac)

OS X Tiger or newer.

It's okay, but the controlling is a bit iffy, especially the jumping (it's difficult to jump precisely - you often end up going too far or not far enough) and when you have to rebound up walls.

The Mac App Store version is copyright 2011 and has the names "David White, Richard Kettering, Ben Anderson et al".

Both the Anura game engine and the original Frogatta game are available as open source on GitHub.

gr8! Only three stars? The farther it's played, cool stuff is continuously unleashed.

I thought I had a pre-release version at first because it is (now) a commercial 2010 game where file says 2009 and no credits or company name anywhere and no registration. Lots o work into creating, and it seems no-names is how they wanted it. Btw Frogatto/Anura was coded by the same guys who brought us the "Battle for Wesnoth".

I've added the .zip archive for version 1.1.1 from the WayBackMachine / Archive.org of the official website. The Get Info window says 2009, but there's no date on the game's About window.

File info for the app bundle(s) claim to be 2009 but further inspection inside them tells of 2010.

I found a few places claiming to be version 1.1.1, but downloading the .zip files so far reveals they are really version 1.0.

Version 1.0.3 seems to work fine in MacOS X High Sierra / 10.13 on my Intel Mac Mini. Smile

There is a version 1.3.2 on the Mac AppStore priced at US$9.99 for Mac OS X 10.6.6 or later (but not macOS Catalina / 10.15).
