May the best Frog win
I created this level in 1998!! I got full marks on Jazz2City with it…. This is THE original Frog Race. Before ANYONE had ever thought of making a race as a Frog. I Stand firmly and squarely behind my level. [besides the zipfile has a different name, so there’s no issue!][This review has been edited by Birdman]
This is amazing. When did you join this site? Because I downloaded it from a private website. I also downloaded your Falkenstien things.
Interesting. Unfortunately, people have higher standards among levels now.
Gameplay – Good
The gameplay is good, for a frog race…. frog races are very slow moving, and they get very boring, especially because they can only be played in splitscreen. You should make your races so you get a coin every time you finish a lap, and then when you have three coins, you are warped to a room with gems so you can win the level. Or, you could do it with trigger zones, which is a bit more complicated. I understand that back in that day, nobody really thought up of those ideas, which is okay. Anyway, there are multiple routes for completing this level, which is also all ways good in races. They both seem to let me complete them with the same amount of effort, which, unfortunately, isn’t much. At the end of the laps, you find Eva, who kisses you, allowing you to complete a lap. Pretty standard race, really.
Eyecandy – Good
Not bad at all. Diamonds in the walls, trees, grass eyecandy, a background, etc. I would like to complain about some of the trees, though, especially the reddish brown ones. They look rather ugly. The eyecandy is overall pretty good for a level of it’s time.
Size – Bad
It’s too small. Frog races don’t need to be very big, because frogs can’t move fast, but this is still a little too small for my liking.
Ammo placement – N/A
No shooting = no ammo.
Biasing – N/A
No Jazz/Spaz = no biasing.
Overall – Good
This would be fun to play in splitscreen, but it just wouldn’t work online.
Download reccomendation – If you’re like DX DC and you play splitscreen a lot offline. Otherwise, leave this alone.
Host this often – No, because it’s not playable online.
6.9, rounded up to 7.0.
No, DX DC, this is 5 years old. He made it well before you.[This review has been edited by labratkid]
It’s a good level, but the eyecandy is not-so-good. Good obstacles. I know the password to your levels, I don’t make them so easy to guess. O.o; I accidently pressed enter while opening your level.

The level, it’s an original idea, but the slowness is annoying.
The eyecandy is OK.
And that’s all.
This was the first race level I ever downloaded, in either 1999 or 2000.
Mikee, you probably got it from Birdman’s Nest, his site, which was the first JJ2 site I ever went to besides The Daily Carrot.
An oldie. But a very original idea indeed. I downloaded it a while ago from Birdman’s nest. I enjoyed it a lot but it only really worked decently for 2-player split-screen mode. Onto the review drumroll:
Gameplay: Good, nice for a race level.
Eyecandy: Mediocre. I really didn’t like the belt part. It looked kinda weird with the tiles going all weird. Also the trees looked odd. Kinda ugly because the tops were joined badly.
Obsticle Placement: Standard.
Pickups Placement: N/A… you’re a frog you foo! :P
Length: A little too short. But when you’re frogs I guess you move a lot slower. So guess it’s fairly good.
Overall: A fairly good race level by Birdman. With a very original idea. 7/10 from me. A job well done.
Rating Frog Race
Frog races are slow and boring? I agree with you. But this frog race is the best one I’ve ever seen!
Eyecandy: (20 pts)
Well… a bit normal. There is nothing special. It’s just like the classical JJ2 Diamondus-levels: trees in the background, diamonds in the walls… and those reddish brown ones are ugly!
Result: 11 pts
Gameplay: (20 pts)
Like I said in ‘To start’ this frog race is the best one ever. It’s the first frog race which isn’t slow. There is also an assembly line which is new into Diamondus-levels. I’ve never seen that before. There are also multiple routes. But it is furthermore nothing special. Just find Eva at the start/finish line and complete your lap. There is not so much special, but it is good.
Result: 14 pts
Obstacle placement: (10 pts)
There are springs to make it harder, but that’s all.
Result: 5 pts
Ammo placement: (10 pts)
If you play a level as a frog, you don’t need ammo, so there is no ammo in this level.
Total points: 30
Maximum number of points: 60-10(ammo placement)=*50*
Download recommendation: N/A
