Pocket Frogs is an interesting social game: unlike most social games out there where the goal is to farm or to defend an empire, Pocket Frogs‘ goal is to collect and take care of frogs. Frogs need to be tamed, bred and cataloged, and more than 10,000 possible unique frogs can be bred through the game.
Frogs need to be taken care of, and placed in various habitats, in order to grow from tadpoles to adulthood. Breeding frogs together will give you new colors and types, and the goal of the game is to find as many new frogs as possible, which in turn will allow you to earn experience and level up.
Beyond raising and breeding frogs, Pocket Frogs also allows you to take your frogs off to the pond, to actually play a separate game, where the goal is to jump from lilypad to lilypad, while eating dragonflies flying around. The extra game may sound simplistic, but is actually quite fun, as catching dragonflies while hopping around the pond is not as easy as it seems. If you reach specific targets, you will be given gifts and even new frogs, which in turn will allow you to increase your flock of frogs, and improve their habitats.
Like most social games, managing your money is key, and farming/selling frogs will allow you to make more money to upgrade your frogs’ habitats, get new types of frogs, etc… Also, if you want to fast-track your progress, you can actually buy – with real dollars – stamps, that will allow you to receive gifts instantly, as well as potions, designed to help you raise your frogs faster.
Pocket Frogs is available in the App Store, and is free.
