You probably know Team17 as the game developer behind the massively popular Worms franchise. That's not all Team17 has ever done, though. Back in 1993 it produced a much lauded platformer in the vein of Sonic or Mario Bros. called Superfrog. It was overshadowed by Worms, which came out in 1995, but fans of the miraculous amphibian will be happy to know the game is back.

Superfrog includes 24 levels (plus boss battles) across six different worlds as you try to save the princess from the (allegedly) evil witch. The graphics have been given a modern makeover obviously, but the gameplay is different too. See, we're all pretty bad at video games now, at least compared to 20 years ago. As such, the default levels in Superfrog have been made a little easier. The original levels are still included as an unlockable option, though.

The game costs $2.99 and there are no in-app purchases. You buy it once, and it's yours forever, just like in the good old days.

    Is the game displayed in a square aspect ratio on Android or are these shots from the iPad version ?
