Frogatto & Friends

Frogatto sprite Avilable on the App Store

Frogatto & Friends is an action-adventure game, starring a certain quixotic frog. Give it a try!
We're trying to push 2D platforming, pixel-art, and music into uncharted territory. We hope you like the results!
Also, Frogatto has a very flexible game engine you can use to make your own creations.

I’ve removed a bunch of the white outlines that just created visual noise, and I’ve also removed a bunch of the chartjunk. Should be much cleaner and more readable, sorry about not doing it right the first time; I have to make mistakes to learn what not to do.

You’ll also note the giant download button that’s now easy to find for a change. We’re hoping to do a mozilla-style “make that link right to your platform’s binary” deal, with a little “other versions” link underneath, but that’ll wait till we have time to figure out the browser detection script, etc. If anyone knows how to do that, and has some javascript for it, by all means, please leave a comment. Anything that can expedite my having to do the research would be great.

    Hey guys,

    I would recommend leaving the focus outlines, this is an accessiblity helper, see this article: http://webaim.org/blog/plague-of-outline-0/

    The download button can be changed by detecting the user agent, in Javascript you can use navigator.platform to find the value (this reports MacIntel on my machine).

    You could also detect the user agent with PHP, for this check out this SO question: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/647969/detect-exact-os-version-from-browser

  2. Here is a script that look very good but never actually used this myself.
    http://www.quirksmode.org/js/detect.html
    It uses bunch of different ways to potentially detecting your OS, so if it is detectable then this script should detect it.
    It will have to be modified a little, specifically for the few specific versions of Linux you support you will have to see what “navigator.platform” outputs and then add that into the script.

    Hey, do you guys have any plans of putting your game on Steam or Desura?

    Thanks.
