That’s right- a Frogger GAME SHOW!
from a SyFy post-
“All in a frog’s work! Peacock has made good on the promise it made this past winter with a legit game show inspired by Frogger, the classic Konami video game first released in the early 1980s. Over the last four decades, the franchise has grown into a collection of more than 30 titles across several different gaming platforms.
In Frogger- contestants have to make it through perilous and colorful obstacle courses or “crossings” (like Frog City, Candy Frog Land, Frogs in Space, Frog Skull Island, Ribbit River, and Toad Temple) — all for $100,000 in prize money. Individuals from around the country must use all of their strength, strategy, and problem-solving skills to come away victorious.
The twist here is that Frogger‘s obstacles are ripped straight out of the arcade game and Frogger II: ThreeDeep– from oncoming cars, to snapping alligators, to hungry, hungry hippos. Luckily, the treacherous obstacles are made of foam and rubber, and don’t pose any actual bodily harm to the human players (well, except maybe their pride), standing in for the famous amphibian attempting to make it across a busy stretch of road and back to its watery home. Konami does have a hand in the show’s creation.
I like it! It has a Holey Moley / Wipeout vibe. I hope they use the game’s sound effects. I’m gonna watch- but what do you think? let me know in the comments!
Keep Playin’ Like It’s 1981!
