Sitting upon two lily pads in the middle of a lily pond are a pair of hungry frogs; one for you, one for your opponent. Overhead swarm delicious flies. Whether or not your frog scores his dinner while you rack up points is entirely up to you. You control the height and direction of his jump; even the flick of his long pink tongue. Leap too high or at the wrong angle and "Pl-op" your frog goes into the pond. He must swim back to his lily pad, taking away valuable scoring time while your opponent goes on racking up points. As play continues, night will come to the pond. Or, you can choose to play the entire round at night, leaping for fireflies -- in the dark.

  • One or two player game
  • Continuous scoring
  • Screen changes from day or night


An M Network version, called Frogs and Flies, was released for the Atari 2600.
