Top 10 Games with Frogs

From the earliest video games, various creatures of all shapes and sizes have featured large. But from their first outing in Frogger, there is something about our pond-dwelling amphibian friends that has led to them becoming a star video game character.

We spent a morning (with the help of Twitter), coming up with the best frog-featuring video games we could find. The result is a top ten list, and a few honourable mentions for games that briefly feature frogs or didn't make the top 10.

This list includes the top 10 games drawn from the last 10 years, with 152 likes. They come from a range of different genres and play-styles and are all good games if you want to play with amphibians.
