The comparison has been many many, many times by people trying to run and dodge through traffic: it feels just like playing Frogger. Except it’s terrifying, because you’re the frog. This is particularly troubling in developing countries still in need of a robust public infrastructure to regulate traffic.
Frogger doesn’t have a whole documentary devoted to it the way that Donkey Kong does, in King of Kong. But Konami’s coin-op classic does have a memorable episode from the Seinfeld TV show, where Jason Alexander’s George Costanza puffs up with pride over his longstanding high score in the game….
Believe it or not, Frogger has been skipping his way across busy highways for 30 years now. And to celebrate his anniversary, Tyler DeAngelo created this updated version of the arcade classic that now has the frog dodging the realtime traffic on New York’s Fifth Avenue.
