Instructions

Use your tongue to catch as many bugs as you can. – that’s pretty much it!

1. Figure out where you want to shoot your tongue

Classic Mode

Catch as many bugs as you can before the timer runs out. Every 30 bugs you catch gives you 15 secs extra time and moves you up a level for higher scoring bugs

Frenzy

A 60 second dash to catch as many bugs as you can – no time extensions here – and all of the different bugs are up for grabs from the start

Split Screen

Split your screen in two and go head to head against a friend in a game of Frenzy

Local Network

Hook up with some friends on your local network and play a game of Frenzy. Up to four players can be in the one match.

Power-Ups

Here are the different power-ups you may see in the game:

Good Power-ups

These power-ups will give you a bit of an advantage

Invincible
Protects you from most hazards and speeds up the speed of your tongue

Wide Tongue
Makes your tongue twice as wide so it is easier to catch bugs

Twins
Gives you a secondary frog to control

Slow Motion
Slows down the the world so it is easier to catch the bugs

Bug Grow
Makes all the bugs on your screen grow so that they are easier to catch

Random
Gives you a random power-up from this list

 

Head to Head Good Power-ups

These power-ups will slow down your opponent (only available in head to head)

Splat
Covers up your opponent’s screen with an ink splat so that they cannot see properly

Lightning
Causes your opponent to get struck by lightning

Bug Shrink
Makes all the bugs on your opponents screen shrink so they are harder to catch

Tongue Tied
Ties a knot in your opponents frog so it is harder for them to catch bugs

Crate
Drops a crate on your opponents head

Anvil
Causes an Anvil to fall on your opponents head

 

Bad Power-ups

Avoid these if you can – they will slow you down.

Splat
Covers up your screen with an ink splat making it hard for you to see

Tongue Tied
Ties a knot in your frog’s tongue reducing your overall range

Bug Shrink
Makes all the bugs on your screen shrink so they are harder to catch

Lightning
Causes you to be struck by lightning

Crate
Drops a crate on your head

Anvil
Drops an Anvil on your head

Hazards

Anvil
Sometime a Bee will carry in an Anvil with the intention of dropping it on your head. If you are quick enough you can get the bug before he is over you and he will safely drop the anvil next to you.

Crate
Just like an Anvil, a Bee will sometimes carry in a crate. The only difference is that a crate will sometimes contain a power-up that is released when it breaks open.

Customise

By playing the single player games – Classic and Frenzy – you earn rewards that can be used to customise the look of your frog.
The longer you play, the more rewards you will unlock, and the bigger variety of looks you can make.
If you want to speed things up, you can choose to watch an add to decrease the time between rewards, or pay to unlock all of the rewards in one go.


Tips and Tricks

Here’s some tips for getting good scores

  • Don’t stop – Try and keep a steady pace and don’t take too long to thing about it
  • Accuracy over speed – you can’t shoot again until your mouth is closed so don’t waste energy constantly swiping
  • Go for Combos – the score you get for catching bugs in multiplied by the combo. Great Combos give you 10x the usual score, and Mega Combos give you 20x the normal score
  • Keep a both hands free – the twin combo can be really powerful, but its hard to use with just one hand
  • Go nuts with the Invincible power-up – especially when going up against Fire Flies.
  • Grab the bugs carrying the Bad Power-ups – they are worth 100pts. Just avoid the power-up once it starts to fall
  • Tap to recover – if you get stunned, start tapping on your frog to make him recover faster
  • Have fun – its just a game after all
