Jump through explosive traps in this action filled mind boggling game.
Fully featured level editor lets you create your own challenges.

This is a shareware game, about 1\3 of the game is available in the demo and you may play it for as long as you like.
The editor is included and may be used, but you need the full version to play the levels you create.
You can get the full version instantly for 19,95$ by clicking the buy now button on the site or in the game.

Frog Bound is mostly played using arrow keys or you can change to gamepad on 'settings' from the menu, if you are using gamepad the button "shift" is replaced by button 1 and "space" by button 2.
When you die you can press space to restart the level quicker, 'shift' triggers the frog's tongue, if there are flies on the level (boss battle) you can eat them and after doing so you can press 'shift' again to fire the fly.
On platform levels you press 'shift' to jump.
You may press 'f2' at any time to restart the game, 'esc' pauses the game and brings up a small menu where you can quit or restart the level (costs 1 life).
You can also press 'esc' on the menu to quit.
The objective of the game is to complete levels, in most cases by going to a glowing 'x' or sometimes a spinning green pad and often you can walk to another level by leaving the screen.
However to do so you must most likely avoid systematic explosions or dangerous electric patterns.
Explosions kill you at one point about 0.05seconds after they appear, so they are not dangerous for a long time even if the animation is still playing.
Also watch out for fireballs, lazers, evil creatures etc.
When you complete a set of levels (sometimes single) your game is saved, you also get a password you can use if you reinstall the game or play on a different computer, but you can also just click "resume game" on the main menu to continue if you have your named typed in.
Note that by trying out a password (or pressing 'start new game') your previous save gets deleted, clicking 'enter password' will first show your current password.
Currently there are 43 checkpoints, only the first 14 are available in the demo.
On some levels you can find golden donuts, for every 3 golden donuts collected you unlock a new challenge on the challenge menu. (up to 5 available in demo) they are also needed to unlock skins on the settings menu.
Press 'ins' to capture a .bmp screenshot that will be stored in the '.\data\screenshots\' directory
The gameplay idea for this game is not from the classic Frogger but from "Bound" maps created on Starcraft 'use map settings' that i used to play when i started this game over 7 years ago.
