Frogs (フロッグス) is an arcade game released by Sega and Gremlin for VIC Dual hardware in 1978.


Players control a frog tasked with eating bugs within a set time limit. Players can hop across the screen, jump upwards and use their tongue. Nothing in the game can kill the frog, though it can be hindered for a few seconds by falling into the water. Much of the game's difficulty comes from the rigid control scheme which does not allow the player to control mid-air movement. Dragonflies award the player extra games.

In an arcade environment, Frogs would be paired with a background overlay to illustrate where the hazards are. If the game lacks the overlay, there are no visual cues as the game is designed for a monochrome display. Despite its name, there is only ever one frog on-screen.
