Official Tap The Frog game hops into the Windows Phone Store

The Official Tap The Frog Windows Phone game from Playfo (opens in new tab) has finally arrived in the Windows Phone Store. For those not familiar, late last year an unofficial version of Tap The Frog was released, then pulled due to copyright issues. Playfo shared with us that an official version of the popular iOS (opens in new tab) and Android (opens in new tab) game would be heading to the Windows Phone platform eventually.

While it took a while, the official version of Tap The Frog is now available for Windows Phone 8 and includes eleven mini-games that will challenge your reactions and skills of observation. Tap The Frog is a fun game to help you pass the time or when you need a longer gaming fix.

The mini-games all involve, as you would guess, frogs. The eleven mini-games include:

  • Paint the Frog
  • Jump the Frog
  • Fly the Frog
  • Pop the Frog
  • Launch the Frog
  • Feed the Frog
  • Build with the Frog
  • Treat the Frog
  • Leap the Frog
  • Drive the Frog
  • Fight the Frog (two player game)

Each game will test your reflexes and observation skills with timed tests. For example with Paint the Frog are presented a group of frogs that are colored one of two colors. As you tap the individual frog, the color will change to the opposite color. You are tasked with tapping the frogs so they will all be one color. You have twenty seconds to unify the color for as many groups of frogs as possible.

The games are simple to pick up but challenging to master. Tap The Frog has nice, cartoonish graphics, fun game play and is well suited for extended gaming sessions or when you need a little help to pass the time. Here’s the iPhone Trailer for Tap The Frog. According to Playfo’s website, the original title for the game was Tap The Frog 2 and was eventually renamed to Tap The Frog.

There is a free trial version available for Tap The Frog, with the full version running $.99. The game does have a few in-app purchase opportunities for clocks that will extend your game timer. Tap The Frog is available for Windows Phone 8 and you can find it here (opens in new tab) in the Windows Phone Store.

Thanks, everyone, for the tip!

  • It came 2 or 3 days ago
  • And that is a reason for not reporting it? A lot of people don't know about it.
  • Nah. Released yesterday. Tipped on it today.
  • Wide mouthed Frog
  • Flappy frog?
  • Too late, games are fads and if you don't strike while the iron is hot you'll miss the opportunity of cashing in.
  • Nice. Not enough amphibian games
  • I remember playing this on my iphone years ago (day one lumia 920 and 1020 user)
  • Should be free
  • You should work for free
  • Your comments makes no sense. Game can still make money even when it's free. Shocking, right? Get out of here
  • They choose not to go for a free version bogged down with adverts, and feel that they can recoup their costs by charging a measly 99 cents with in-app purchases. Sorry, I forgot you were so stingy and can't spare a buck.
  • Haha i can spend a buck but i rather buy an asphalt 8 (yes I know it's free now). This game is not 0.99 worth. Sorry i forgot you are just a sheep who buys everything without thinking
  • There's a free trial. If it really isn't worth paying $1 for then why do you want it at all? If you want it, buy it. If you don't, then don't cry about it not being free.
  • It's funny, but all graphics are a rip-off from Cut the Rope ...
  • This game is so cute and fun to play! :-D
  • Maybe I have the wrong viewpoint, but how long did this take to be available on WP? I don't care about "long distance" after thought apps finally arriving on our platform.
  • Not available here in Brazil.
  • Tap Da Tass would be a great name for a WP game.
  • Yes. For your game to be released in Brazil GuilhermeManso can help with ESRB or PEGI certification for approval through a fast and simple process.If it does not have any of those certifications, you can alternately request the Brazilian DJCTQ certification.
  • Hands are full with Rayman. Its been a long while since I earned a achievement.
