Superfrog!

Radiostudio RadioMusicPlusLast friday i stumbled across a blogpost by Dutch Radio 3FM Radio DJ Bart Arens who made a post about Superfrog:

I’m not a gamer. It’s a waste of my time. Obviously, i don’t have a console.

Friendly request: Don’t laugh.
The only game that I ever played and finished was the Commodore Amiga platform game Superfrog.
Now what did I ask?!

It took me well over 2 weeks to get trough the 28 levels. The joystick was pretty much broken afterwards. Just now, i came across the game again, now as a PC game. I didn’t download it because I know i’ll lose myself in it again.

So. For 12 years I knew no one who knew that game and now i find this weblog. What an amazing game was that. I spent many days playing it when I was younger.

In hindsight, it might have been the most fun game I ever played…

A while ago I found an Amiga emulator, which allowed me to play the game on my computer again. It seemed more difficult than I remembered. I was not able to defeat the evil Witch in the end… Too bad, because the ending cinematic was quite funny 🙂

Also, I once made a webcomic. which used graphics based on the game.
For furute plotlines, I did some brainstorming and made some locations, including a radio studio, which is based on the studios of local radio station WebFM in Weurt. Check the picture for how that looked!
