Frog Fractions

Frog Fractions

“Hidden scope” games like Normal Super Mario Bros. are one of the most interesting things to come out of the Flash scene, and Frog Fractions is possibly their apex. What begins with eating flies and fruit for fractional points in a parody of edutainment games gradually transforms into a dozen other things I don’t want to spoil. Not that there’s a worthwhile plot or anything; this is quintessential surreal internet humour, but the surprising depth to which it extends is worth discovering. There’s one particularly inert scenario and one particularly unusual one that overstay their welcome, and it’s not always clear which aesthetics are parodically crummy and which are genuinely so. Nevertheless, the majority of the running time is amusing, its writing is unexpectedly clever, and its ambition is undeniable.
