Crossy Road is a pixel based mobile game that has players crossing a busy street of traffic with their unique character. Mixing in the classic gameplay of Frogger and adding an endless component to it has proved an addicting formula on both the iOS and Android platforms.

With simple gameplay Crossy Road is accessible to all ages and spectrum on the gamer scale. Your sole objective in the game is to make it as far as you possibly can without dying. This distance incorporates roads, rivers, grass and even train tracks which each have their own obstacles to avoid from fast moving trains to cars and floating logs on the river.

Moving around these obstacles is a simple affair with players instructing their character to take steps forward, backwards and side to side. Players are limited in their backward movements though to encourage continually moving forward gameplay and similarly are penalised for standing still for too long.

During each game players will also encounter gold coins scattered around the environment which can be collected to unlock additional characters that you can use in future games. Coins can also be earned in a number of other ways in game which ensures a steady flow to ensure you feel rewarded for every game run.

With well over 100 of these characters picking which one to use can take just as long as unlocking them. With a collection ranging from the simple chicken to other animals, memes and special events the variety is impressive with some also changing the visuals of other game elements.

For older players that grew up on Frogger you’ll find the game a great nostalgic trip into the past. While younger gamers will get to experience a classic game that has been modernised for a new generation.

Summary:

  • Frogger combines with modern endless runners.
  • Over 100 characters to unlock and use.
  • Adventure over roads, rivers, railways and more.
  • Enjoy a world full of blocky graphics.
  • Play for free on iOS and Android devices.
