A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

It's a pretty easy game to handle. All you need to do is tilt your mobile device in order to direct your constantly leaping frog as he hops upward from platform to platform. The higher you go, the fewer platforms there are to land on and the the game is thus more challenging, but you can go pretty far without much difficulty.

Violence

There a minor bit of slapstick violence. Your frog may, for instance, get hit on the head with a bucket. The frog can be seen with casts on arms or legs if he gets too beat up. It's all very cartoony.

Sex
Language

The costume shop, in which you can dress your frog in various outfits and accessories, is called "Pimp My Frog."

Consumerism

In the game, you can gather jewels that can then be used to purchase costumes and power-ups from the in-game shop. You can also, for real money (between $1 and $4), buy extra jewels from the iTunes app store.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that while FROGGY JUMP is a free app, it offers impatient kids the chance to quickly stock up on jewels by paying real money for them at the app store. Jewels can be earned in the game, too, so there's no specific need to purchase them. Also, parents should be aware of the (im)mature humor in the game, like the "Pimp My Frog" store. Parents should also be aware that Froggy Jump allows players to connect to the OpenFeint social network for app gamers where players can chat with other players and connect to Facebook and other social networks.

Is it any good?

There's an element of skill to playing FROGGY JUMP, but it's not all that difficult, which is part of its appeal. it's one of those addictive arcade games that begs you to keep trying to beat your previous record. As your frog leaps ever higher, eventually out of Earth's atmosphere and off to foreign planets, it's fun to see the backgrounds and obstacles changing. The graphics aren't all that attractive, but for a free app, you can't complain too much. The action is fun, and that's the main point.
