Classic Frogger with libGDX

Roger Engelbert’s excellent tutorial on building a classic Frogger clone with libGDX appears to have gone offline. A couple of months ago I based my own clone on this. It definitely needed some tweaks, like better touch controls, better display responsiveness and some settings (mute sound!). Several similar Frogger apps using the same assets can be found on Google Play. Unfortunately, most of them are hardly playable or overloaded with ads. Even less fortunate is that I am not allowed to publish mine on Google Play (which would have been an improvement).

So what do we have? The entire project is available on GitHub. If you feel like it you can build it all by yourself.

Install on Android

Make sure to allow apps from unknown sources on your device. Then download the APK from GitHub:

android-release.apk

Run on Linux, OS X or Windows

Make sure to have at least JRE (or JDK) 7 installed. Then simply launch the JAR file that can be found on GitHub:

desktop-1.0.jar

Install on Ubuntu

To install Frogger on Ubuntu (or Mint) you can add our PPA to your system:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:helfrich/ppa
sudo apt-get update

Install the package:

sudo apt-get install frogger

Supported Ubuntu releases are Trusty, Xenial, Yakkety and Zesty.
