The game of Frogger brings back memories for people in their forties. The game was such a classic it was even on an episode of Seinfeld.

Now Frogger has become a favorite of people of all ages again thanks to the iPhone.

It has remained popular and you will find Frogger games on various websites throughout the internet even today.The Frogger iPhone app means you can now play wherever you go.
The game was originally going to be called "Highway Crossing Frog" but Sega didn't feel like this name upheld the nature of the game and decided to change the name to Frogger. Now the name of this game has pretty much become a household name. There is not many people you run into that can honestly say they have never heard of Frogger.
