I got this game for christmas and found it a very challenging game. Gamefaqs
has'nt got a FAQ/Guide for this at time going to press (It has one for the
Gameboy version any) so I decided to write one. Basically, This game is a
platform game where you cross roads of ants, lillys and even fire. At the same
time you must find 5 frogs. This walkthrough will be telling you how to get all
the baby frog's, coins and how to finish time trails, get the secret frogs and
arcade levels.

III) Characters

Here is a short list of the main cast in Frogger II, The hero's of the game and
of course, the Villian.


Frogger, the daddy of the series is in his first of the Next generation console
games. With a Gameboy Advance game and Playstation 2 game coming along, He is a
busy man, I mean frog. Frogger, the green hero has his trusty tounge to aid him
in his difficult task of rescuing the frogs and restore peace to the park pond.
It is finally time to face his rival, Swampy.


Lillie is Frogger's girlfriend. She is pink witha flower thing on top of my
head. She looks weak, But she follow's Frogger and joins him in his quest. She
will stop at nothing to help Frogger take down Swampy. Lillie is very same as
Frogger is every aspect, so she has the same moves.


Fed up of being jumped on the head since the very first game, Swampy has had
enough with Frogger. Swampy trie's everything from trying to run him other to
the most insane. Then, Swampy has a plan, To kidnap all of the frog's and
Toad's in Frogger's pond, with the exception of Lilly and Frogger. You won't
get away with this Swampy! Not with Frogger and Lilly on the good side.


Tad, Short for Tadpole is more of a Toad then a "Tadpole" or a frog. Tad is
blue and is one of the captives from Frogger's Pond. What is Tad's purpose in
the game? You will soon find out. One thing for sure, he is brave and strong,
Just like Frogger.


Treeby is the dumb boy of the bunch, He is not very bright and always says
"Duh!?". Treeby is fatter then the other three frog's, he has no purpose in the
story, But is fun to play as him in both Multi-Player and Arcade.

The first unlockable playable character. Wart is the bugger of the bunch, he is
brown with a lot of scars and a few wart's. He has Frogger's style of build
really, but have a different colour and patches. To Unlock Wart you have to
complete "Blockade" Level on Arcade mode, Then get all 25 coins on a level
which you havn't already.

Tank is the second unlockable character. Tank is very mysterious, at first
looks like a Mummy but as you use him he looks a de-formed robot. Despite his
name, Tank has no hidden weapons. BUMMER! To unlock Tank, Basically do the same
methord for Wart, but after getting Wart, get 25 coins on a level you havn't

After Tank, what was you expecting? A Prince Frog? A Posh Frog? The third
hidden character is a KANGAROO! Blimey! Well, A Kangaroo can hop, and it does
have all the other frog's abilities. Roobie is also fun to play, I am sure I
will be using him/her on the next few missions. To get Him/Her, Use the same
methord for Wart and Tank but  complete a level with 25 coins.


If you don't want the Last Hidden Character spoiled for you, Skip ahead!


The Final character is whom I have been expecting sooner or later. The final
character is indeed Swampy. Swampy get's around on the bag which he carries,
and his roles on the levels are the same (Rescue frogs!). To unlock him, Use
the same methord for Wart, Tank, Roobie, but complete yet another level with 25
coins. Simple.


IV) Enemies and Obsticals

Frogger II is littered with bad guys who will stop Frogger, Lilly and the other
character's in their tracks, One prod and it's all other. I have composed a
list of enemies, their tatic's and how you can avoid them.

Crocodile on Mine Cart.

On the Training Level, at the end, you will see a mine track with a rather
"thin" crocodile riding on the mine cart. These are very slow and only the
impossible will get themselves killed off by this.
Traditional Leaves

These are the traditional Frogger obsticals. These start off on the very first
level, You basially have to jump from leaf to leaf without falling off. In
later level's, these maybe replaced by rocks, Turtles, Logs, mine carts etc.
Lawn Mower

The first tricky challenge. On the second level, You will encounter a couple of
these lawn mower's. They move about twice as fast as Frogger and go up and
down, left to right in a pattern. The only two ways to avoid them is to out run
them or hide in one of the many alcolves.
Dodge Me, Dodge This

Another Tradition is based on the Cars and Lorrys from the very first game, You
need to get accross the path, which has Lawnmowers, Bee's, Rocks, Beasts etc
running accross at their own speed, you need to time your moves and dash past
them... fast.

The 'Roo' just hops up and down, left and left. All you have to do is walk past
this slow hopper.
Mini Bug

These are as annoying as a plague. They move fast, catch up with you and are
often found on long trails.
Dodge Me, Dodge This 2

Dodge Me, Dodge This 2 is basically the same as Dodge Me, Dodge This, but they
us usually a lot more enemies and holes you must jump over or avoid.

On the third level, Spikes will come out of wall's every few seconds. you will
have to time yourself, and becareful not to step in to more danger.
Cannon Balls

These are very annoying on some levels. Cannons Balls usually aim down huge
strips, Jumping over them is hard, either dash past if possible or choose a
different path. One of the early levels has Platforms going one way, and
cannons balls going another, I don't know if it is just me, but it does seem
like an optical illusion.

Like the Crash Bandicoot games, Triggering something sends a boulder chasing
after you, you have to move fast and plan your route, without getting killed or
falling to your death.
Crumbling Tiles

These are somewhat easy. When tiles srart to crumble, quickly run accross to
Monkey With Rocks

At the start of the level called Pyramid, A Monkey will be throwing rocks down
a long, steep hill. Get a pattern ready, Say the middle column gets a rock down
it, go up two steps and switch to another column for 2 steps and repeat.

Like the Monkey with the Rocks, The buffolo's will run up and down on a column
of three. You basically need to plan your route, becareful as the Buffolo's are
very fast.

On the level, Grindstone, Giant stones will start rolling accross the level,
Notice those blocks sticking out of the ground? stand on them and you will be
Spikes 2

These spikes are on the gorund. Again, time your move.

These are really avoidable. If you jump ON them, you will die, but on some
levels you don't need to make any use of them at all.

Rat's are not actually a threat, They follow a trail they made themself, so its
easy to plan a safe route. In later levels these will be replaced with things
like hands.

Spider's are rare, They just slowly go up and down a web on the mine cart
obsticals. Easy, just don't get in their way.
Fire Ball

These are like Cannon Balls. They go in a stright line,and are one of my least
favourite obsticals. You need to double jump 1 second after their in site, or
you can avoid them by going up and down the path.
Fire Rocks

These are like bouncing balls. They jump from platform to platform. The only
way to avoid is to avoid and get a "Quick Hop" power up.

On one of the middle levels, You will encounter Mimics. They copy your every
move and tend to be on the square behind you, all you can do is out run them.
Normal Platform Perils

This is your normal everyday Platform stuff, Jump from platform to platform, no
Propella Mechanics

These Propella monsters honer in the air making their way in the opposit
direction. They tend to get in the way, and if you jump and/or jump under them,
you will die.
Laser Pads

Lazer Pads are in a few High Tech levels. When a lightning bolt stikes in a
pattern between them. You will have to time... carefully.
Moving Tiles

Another traditional Platform element. Blocks / Tiles come out from sides of the
wall for a short period of time, You must move fast and get accross or up /
Down etc.
Bat Cave

On the later levels are dark caves which houses bat's. Every few seconds, Bat's
will shoot out of the bat cave at full speed ready to attack you!

The statues stay still, unlike most enemies and they keep blocking your way
with axes. Time your moves fast, as they can be anything from one to four

V) Power-Ups

Frogger 2 has it's variety of Power Ups for your characters to use. Here they

Extra Life

This is more comman then the others. You will find them just about anyway.
Whenever you see a butterfly, Use your tounge to catch it!
Quick Hop

Quick Hop basically makes your character hop a lot faster.
Auto Hop

Auto Hop is hard to use in my opinion. Your character will hop automatically,
plus making you go fast.


Q) How do I unlock the four hidden characters?
A) To unlock the four kidden characters, You need to unlock ALL the Arcade
levels, Including Blockage. To unlock the arcade stages, you need to collect 25
coins on each level. After you have unlocked Blockage, get 25 coins on a level
which you havn't already.

Q) Can I use this F.A.Q
A) Of course, Just don't make any profit ;).

Q) Is it possible to play as Treeby and the four hidden characters in story
A) No. You can play as them in Story Levels though, By going to the Arcade
screen on the main menu.

VII) Story Walkthrough.

Welcome to the Core of the walkthrough. The story FAQ will give away some
spoilers, story line wise. I will display everything in chapters for easy

CHAPTER 1 : Intro

XI) Multi-Player

Frogger 2 has three types of Multi-player maddness to keep you and your family
and friends occupied.

Race : In my opinion, This is the best type of multiplayer on this game. Two to
four players race on several types of levels. They are a few obsticals to keep
you away from the end of the course, but not life-threatening. If one player
get's a lot futher then the other player, the loosing player will "warp" near
the leading player, to save camera strain.

The levels are.

1) Valley Rally - Valley Rally is a desert type level. It has boulders going up
and down ramps, a set of crumbelling tiles and a pond of obsticals for you to
jump over.

2) Dock Dash - I love this Level. A similar one should of been included in the
story game. It has a lot of jumping involved. I do like this level.

Basic Tips : Never go speeding ahead of your opponants, as they die and may end
up in front of you when ressurected. You can slow them down by jumping on each

Snake : Many of you will reconise this as "Snake", the classic game now on most
of the new mobile phone's out. Your characters will start leading a trail of
blocks behind them, you must avoid hitting blocks or walls. You cannot stay
still either, as the characters will automatically move.

The levels are

1) Trail Blazer : This is the normal one, and my favourite. it has no obsticals
but the other players. Pure Fun.

2) Cornered : Cornered is really annoying. it has several towers ready for you
to be trapped and run in to.

3) Boxed In : There is a few box corners in the centre of the stage. All you
need to do is avoid it.

Basic Tips : Never trap yourself in to a place where you can't get out. Also,
They maybe butterfly's in the levels which will slow the other character down.

Road Race : This is the same as Arcade levels where you must get Frog's at the
end of the road. The levels here have the same objective. The first player to
get the most frogs wins. If you ahve 2 players, its the first to get 3 frogs.
In 3 players, its first to get the most frogs and in 4 Player, the first to get
2 frogs.

The Levels are

1) Way Back When : This is the basic Frogger stage. At the start there is a 
road, middle a patch of "purple" grass with a snake on it and at the end a
patch of water with obsticals on.

2) Toad Road : Treat this as a giant road with a few spodges of water. Some
cars go left, Some go right. Simple

3) Gridlock : Like Toad Road, this is a level based on a big road, But some
cars go right, some go down.

Basic Tips : You can slow them down by jumping on each other.
Always take your time and try and put your rivals off guard.

XII) Review
That is right. No typo. This does have a 10. I'll say it again incase you think
I am using the same typo again. 10, 10, 10, 10, 10. Frogger 2, is one of the
best game's I have played.

Story : - 10 The story starts with Frogger and his Girlfriend enjoying a day in
the sun with all their children. meanwhile, Swampy the Crocodile is getting fed
up of Frogger, you see, Frogger has jumped on Swampy's back soo many times
before, ever since the first Frogger game, and Swampy plans revenge, by
kidnapping all the baby frogs. Unlike most villians (Bowser, Robotnik, Cortex
etc),his first plan fails, then he finally gets the baby frog's and goes to his
hideout. It is up to Frogger and Lilly (His girlfriend) to stop him. The story
deserves a 10, after all, his plans fail, and there is a background drop to it,
I mean, most villians kidnap people for no reason right?

Graphics - 9 Cute, Colorful and splendid. The spirit graphics are made
beautifuly, You can hardly see the polygons which made the game, they are
cleverly hidden. There are many FMV's in this game, and the graphics on them
are just well done. Because there is a ''Classic Mode'', Which lets you play
the first Frogger game, and many others the graphics don't look hot on big
screen, and tend to be a bit stretched. I forgot, the water texture in the
waters are great, it looks like the developers slapped a rectangle of spanish
sea water on to you're screen :D.

Sound and Music - 10 Though not many gamers notice, the sound and music ranks
in as one of the best. You can hear machines, enemies from a distance, the
quiter the enemy (roach) the sneakier it is, the louder the enemy, you know it
is big. As for the music on each level, it blends in well, from cheerful tunes
for a Garden theme, to spookyish music for Haunted Houses.

Gameplay and Challenge - 10 The game is VERY HARD! You'll get frustrated after
a bit at times. You need to time just right, plan just right, or take Life or
Death decisions. The controls are easy to figure out, why did they even put in
a training level? There is a Classic Mode, where players can expirence old
gaming, and some old challenges, which did'nt meet it to the arcade.

Replaybility - 9 The story mode is hard enough as it is, once you complete
that, you might want to move on to getting EVERY coin in each and every level,
or beating the best time, which is HARD!. Then there is a multiplayer mode...

Multiplayer - 10 Hohoho! what fun. A fair selection of characters to choose
from, playing modes and levels. You can race each other in short levels. And
you know that mobile phone game called ''SNAKE'', well, you can even play a
multiplayer version of that, where you are to trap other frogs, or make them
bump into you're wall.

Overall - 10 A funny, cute, challenging master peice, which will last longer
then you will expect.
