So there I was. On my computer. I had just cried my eyes out over the end of Telltale's The Walking Dead, and I see someone in a YouTube comment mention this game. A surreal, hilarious flash game.
The game was called Frog Fractions.
I decided I needed a little pick-me-up after the emotional roller-coaster I had just endured. So I load this game up, right?
I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
Fuckin' art, man. What's with all the games I talk about having wonderful art?
The epic tale of Frog Fractions begins in a pond.
It's pretty dang simple. You play as a frog, and he's really fucking good at fractions. See, every time he catches a bug, be it fly, butterfly, dragonfly, a whole lotta flies, with his ridiculously long tongue (Seriously, Gene Simmons has some serious competition.) fractions pop up! Later on, the fractions become scientific notation, and even sometimes you encounter a typing segment. Oh, and you collect apples, but that's not too important.You can upgrade the fractions frog with a lock-on reticle, a static tongue, the ability to turn those pesky apples to durians, and even a turtle to ride.
So eventually I'm a frog on a turtle with a static tongue and I'm kinda bored. I'm moving around, catching durians, eating bugs, and scoring major points. I've unlocked all the upgrades so far, and I have no idea what to do.
Then I pressed down and everything changed.
I score a ridiculous amount of points and that turtle is then upgraded to a dragon.I spot a warp upgrade to the side. I use it and then go skyward, because fuck it, video games.
Oh. I'm in space now.
Ok, I'm fucking sold. Where else am I going?
Frog Fractions has now gone from a joke educational game to a space shooter in a matter of five minutes or so.
The Fraction Frog and his trusty dragon companion are now shootin', eatin', and educatin' through the depths of space when a boss appears. Nope, shit's dealt with.
Ain't nobody fucks with Frog Fractions. No one.
Protect ya neck.
Anyways, the frog has just killed a man! Duh, that's what happens when you shoot people out of goddamn space.
So now our friend has to go to court.
That's all I'll be telling you guys about Frog Fractions and it's absurdities. What I've put in this blog is only the tip of the hilarious iceberg the dudes at Twinbeard made. The game is great, it's a truly unique experience that will surprise you and have you laughing hysterically by it's end. It's only like a 30-40 minute game, anyways, so whaddya got to lose?
So what are you waiting for? Frog Fractions
is completely free and browser based! So you don't even have to download this thing! One thing you should download though is the excellent soundtrack
that totally made me all happy inside.
So yeah, Frog Fractions was the perfect pick-me-up.
