Frogun Encore Review is a dashing standalone expansion/sequel to the indie hit FROGUN! Join now-older Renata and Jake on a trek around the whole world to prevent the return of Beelzebub. ENCORE builds on FROGUN’s retro PS1/N64 formula. Plus, enjoy the whole adventure in true couch co-op.

  • Camera settings – Invert axis and sensitivity sliders.

  • Within each level you can earn emblems for – collecting all coins, finishing under the time limit, finishing the level, finding the emeralds, not dying, and clearing the secret area.
  • Not all emblems have to be done in one run.
  • Builds on the previous games.
  • With the same familiar controls, new players will quickly get to grips with the controls.
  • A lot of fun.
  • Built-in photo mode.
  • Actions available to you are – jump and double jump, and your Frogun shoots out a sticky tongue so you can grab and throw enemies and items.
  • Excellent level design.

Frogun Encore Review Cons:

  • No real camera control which makes jumps and finding coins and secret areas a real pain.
  • The Frogun still takes some getting used to.
  • It has improvements over the previous game but it isn’t a huge step up overall.
  • Slow to restart after a death.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
