Windows 8.1 App Watch: Danger Road

Danger Road continues the recent influx of games on the Windows Store. This is actually a modern take on the classic arcade game Frogger, as you can see from the image above.

Gameplay is similar to the vintage hit — though the visual presentation has a chunky and blocky look.

The premise of the game is to cross the road, but this game actually adds more obstacles and other such elements to make it more challenging than the original. A number of unlockable are on offer, including the frog that was a star of the early 80s sensation.

More, after the official description:

“This is an free game that takes the basic idea of the arcade classic Frogger to a whole new level. While guiding little animals through an endless series of dangerous train tracks, busy roads and rivers full of hazards, the player must avoid obstacles or try to jump on tree logs that float in the rivers.

The further you manage to go, the more cute and funny characters you are able to unlock. Amongst them are a cat, a pig and of course the frog that started it all back in 1981. The beautiful, retro styled graphics and the simple, but highly addictive gameplay make you want to play more and more and and now you can! Have fun!”

Nothing much to say other than the fact that this game is designed for touch capable Windows devices. Exclusively it seems, as keyboard and mouse support is nonexistent.

But if you have access to touch enabled hardware, this one is a nice way to waste a few minutes. Or hours, at that. Quick and breezy download that works on all modern versions of Windows, 32-bit, 64-bit and ARM.
