Save the Frogs: Play free online frog games

Updated on April 29, 2011

Free online frog games

Frogs do so much for us, while asking so little in return. Their preferred habitats are places humans generally avoid. Their diet consists of yucky bugs and slitherers that we kill when they crawl out from under our living room furniture.

Sometimes a frog simply needs a helping hand. We humans can hit the Wendy's drive-through at virtually any hour of the day, but well-meaning frogs often struggle to fill their chronically distended bellies with tasty insects.

You can help. By playing several strategic games of Frogit2, you have the opportunity to provide sustenance to deserving frogs. No trips to smelly slimy swamps will ever be asked of you. From the comfort of your living room furniture, you can help your favorite online virtual frog gobble up unsuspecting cartoon bugs.

How does it work?

Use your arrow keys to maneuver your virtual frog (Henrietta the frog) in two dimensions. Guide her toward cute little bugs, which provide her with much needed nourishment. Unfortunately, the bugs have an extremely short lifespan. They appear and disappear like NBC sitcoms. Just when you have her swimming stroke lined up on a juicy bug, it vanishes.

Level 1 challenges you to help Henrietta swim into 30 bugs. You have only 30 seconds to do so. Swimming physics are interesting: the little froggy picks up some momentum as arrow keys are depressed. She can be nudged in several directions at the same time. Be careful to keep her from spinning into the pac-man-shaped water lilies lining the virtual pond.

As your skills increase you will be able to help Henrietta consume her limit of 30 bugs in 30 seconds. That may seem like a lot of bugs. A second level of bugs soon becomes too tempting: Henrietta must push onward to yet another pond full of luscious treats. Most of us would retch at the sight of a single bug in our salad. This girl can't get enough.

The frog feeding challenge. Are you prepared?

How do you win?

You're a winner if you can satisfy the primordial urges of your frog. Every amphibian needs to eat: Henrietta is no different from the croakers lining subdivision catch basins across Middle America.

Level 2 seems virtually unreachable. We cleared the first 30-bug pond only one time. Perhaps if we invest sufficient time and effort to master the vagaries of swimming physics in online free frog games, our swimmer will not starve. We did suffer a twinge of virtual guilt.

A hard-earned meal.

Is it fun?

It's a little fun. It's not Call of Duty fun or Hannah Montana fun, but online games requiring frog feeding rarely measure up to real life. Compared to flipping through 256 digital TV channels on a rainy Saturday afternoon, we'd probably end up choosing Jeopardy reruns.

Watching the clock wind down proves stressful. Our faithful frog seemed eager to please whether we managed to feed her or not. We did experience some prehistoric satisfaction at aiding her in her buggy quest. As she ate, we felt fuller.

Don't the plants look like little green Pac Men?
