OverviewOverview

Shadow Frog is a simple running and jumping game you play with a single button/tap on the screen. You play Frogo who needs to escape the caves. Using just your jump button you interact with the cave walls and platforms to get around and collect keys. But you have to think ahead as a shadow frog chases you down, mimicking your every move.

The simple one tap play is more involved that it sounds. You can tap twice to jump in the air. You can tap to jump up and cling to a wall. You can jump while on a wall to change direction. Use these abilities to plan your moves, collect the keys to unlock your way to the next challenges without being caught by your shadow.

The game has over 30 handmade levels, pixilated graphics and a synth soundtrack. It can be played in portrait or landscape orientation. Each level you get a time, which is entered into the online leaderboards.
