FROGGERÂ® FOR PRIZES HOPS ONTO MOBILE PHONES
LOS ANGELES, CALIF--FEBRUARY 23, 2006--Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. announced today that FroggerÂ® for Prizes, a mobile version of the video arcade classic, has debuted in North America and will be available across several North American carriers and portals. The game is powered by the proprietary "For Prizes" platform from InfoSpace, allowing players to compete against each other to win prizes in daily head-to-head and weekly progressive tournaments.
Frogger for Prizes is an authentic translation of the original arcade version of Frogger with multiple enhancements and updated graphics. To clear each level, players guide "Frogger" from the bottom of the handset screen across a busy road and treacherous river into each of five home squares. As the levels advance, the traffic gets faster and the risks increase.
Frogger for Prizes has three game modes - Classic, Deluxe and Tournaments for Prizes. The Classic mode is based on the original arcade classic while the Deluxe mode includes several new game features, such as power-ups, new bonus items and challenging obstacles. In the Tournament mode, players can compete in daily or weekly tournaments against others and win great prizes, such as gift certificates, Frogger console games and more! The daily tournaments will be head-to-head competitions, where the players with the best win/loss ratio will claim the prizes. The weekly tournaments will be progressive, where the player with the highest overall score will win the prize.
This year, Frogger celebrates his 25th anniversary! Frogger captured the hearts of gamers everywhere when it first appeared in arcades in 1981. With over 20 million games sold to date, Frogger continues to be one of the most memorable and beloved pop icons in the history of video games. To join in the celebration, visit www.frogger25th.com.
