Brief Play Description: 

The game is a 3rd person, retro visual & music style platformer. The player is a Frog whom can use his tongue to grapple onto objects and swing from one object to another. The objective is to rescue stranded tadpoles and return them to the water - or face extinction! You must not take too long exploring for the tadpoles or else you will dey out and die and thus result in extinction as you are the last Frog of your kind. Regular returns to the water below will ensure survival but the player is encouraged to master the tongue grasping mechanic to reach the tadpoles quickly to survive so the game does have a speed platforming element particularly for later complex levels.
