Frogatto is a classic-style 2d adventure game, starring a certain quixotic frog. It's made by the same team that brought you Battle for Wesnoth, and features the same handcrafted love of high-end pixel art. Frogatto is a side-on "platformer" or "jump and run" game, where you lead our titular character on a humdrum errand that turns into a daring adventure.
Frogatto's key mechanic is an unusual twist; like any frog, he jumps, swims, and snags bugs with his tongue, but unlike any frog before him, can spit those bugs out with deadly force. Not merely an action game, frogatto is a full, classic adventure game, with characters to talk to, things to buy, puzzles to solve, and a wide, complex world to explore.
- grab enemies with your tongue and spit them to deal damage
- buy powerups to enhance and unlock new abilities
- arcade mode, giving instant access to action-only gameplay on randomized levels
- forgiving savegame/respawn system so you don't have to be afraid of losing progress
- playful dialogue writing that tries not to insult your intelligence
- massive soundtrack with over an hour of original music
- sprawling, complex world with over 50 levels to explore, and tons of secrets to find

Best deal on the app store. Period. - It's 99 cents. Remember this point, it will come up later. Frogatto is a beautifully rendered retro platform, with absolutely beautiful artwork, and mood-setting music that reminds me a lot of Maplestory, except it's actually good. Also, it's not a mmo at all, just the aesthetic style is reminiscient, what with sweeping 16/32-bit vistas, etc... Anyway, it's absolutely beautiful, it plays like a kirby game but with slightly tighter controls, and now enemy powerups, just swallow/spit, but there are some cool things that manage to take that rather one-note mechanic and stretch it out. The character and enemy design is good, the level design is above average, the writing is surprisingly good, and also surprisingly existant, and I've already sunk about 2-3 hours into it and I believe I'm only about a third of the way through. AND IT'S 99 CENTS. There is no other game I know of on the app store, mac or iOS, that gives you that much bang for your buck, AND IT'S NOT EVEN ON SALE. This better get popular- it deserves it. GIVE THIS GAME A CHANCE. You know you've wasted a dollar on far shallower titles before - make up for those lost bucks with the amazing deal and fun times that is/are/whatever Frogatto! One small quibble that'll hopefully get patched - fullscreen please? Still, completely and totally worth it. Most satisfaction I've ever gotten from a dollar.
Meh. . . - This game isn't for me. It's frustrating; the controls are awkward ('a' key to jump, for instance) and it takes too long to get used to them to really enjoy the game. If you want a challenge, then go for it. But if you're like me, and you want a game like Agry Birds that only takes a few minutes to learn to play, then don't bother.

Not bad, but... - Not bad, but where is full screen mode???
The best retro platformer on the App Store - Everything is perfect. Visuals, gameplay and soundtrack. Lost Pixel has really put everything they have got into this little masterpiece. For any fan of classic platformers, this is a no-brainer.
Yes it’s great, however... - This is a 5-star game. I rate it low because of the lack of fullscreen or other window sizing options. One reviewer wrote that there’s a fullscreen option under the file menu. Maybe for them but I found nothing. The game window is way too small on my large monitor. Still, if you like platform/exploration games, this is a good one. I use the built-in Mac zooming function in the Accessibility features. If you check the box that allows the screen image to move only when the cursor is near the edge of the screen, the magnified window will stay centered in the monitor. This works for me and I’m able to enjoy this excellent game.
