Swing! Frog is like a side-scrolling version of the popular iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry game, Doodle Jump. In it, your objective is to take your frog as far as you can through the infinitely scrolling level to increase your score. Also, you must pick up coins and other goodies to help you earn points and get you on the leaderboard.
The interface is simple: while your frog jumps non-stop, tilt your device left and right to direct him onto the stable candy platforms without falling, and be sure to avoid colliding with anything along the way. To make things even more difficult, you must avoid obstacles like fire, frog-eating plants, and crumbling platforms. Ultimately, patience and a steady hand will be your greatest assets in this game.
While we did find Swing! Frog entertaining, we felt it lacked some of the panache that makes its vertically scrolling counterpart, Doodle Jump, such a hit. It's not quite as addictive, the animation is not quite as cute, and the music, curiously enough, sounds like it's from an '80s romantic comedy montage. That said, it is still a fun game to fire up on a whim, and it's free, which are both good enough reasons to at least try it out.
