Crossy Road is an arcade game inspired by the classic Frogger where you have to try to guide an animal across a series of streets full of traffic and other dangers.
Gameplay in Crossy Road is very simple: tap the screen and your cute little animal will make a jump ahead, and slide your finger to one side or the other to move him sideways. Your aim is to try to get as far as you can, avoiding cars, trucks, and trains that pass on the highways.
Along the way you’ll not only find dangers, but also, here and there, coins you can use to buy new animals to take across the roads. They don’t any have particular special abilities, but some of them do look quite cool.
One of Crossy Road’s strong points, in fact, is its charming graphic quality. With a minimalistic and polygon-like style, the game presents an aesthetic midway between Frogger and Minecraft.
Crossy Road is a reinvention of the classic Frogger that adds a new layer to Konami’s 1981 hit, and in doing so manages to offer a fresh and fun experience that’s perfectly adapted to touch screens.
