Early this summer we posted an exclusive sneak preview of NimbleBit's upcoming frog management title Pocket Frogs, which is something of a follow-up to their popular Dizzypad. The developer has recently posted a video showing the game in action and provided us with additional screenshots.

Pocket Frogs is a game of raising, breeding, and trading frogs. Each of your frogs will have three specific genetic traits that they inherit from their parent frogs, which according to NimbleBit will result in "many thousand possible emergent species." There are going to be multiple customizable habitats to raise your frogs in, and players will be responsible for keeping the frogs healthy, happy, and well fed by taking them out to explore the Pocket Frog pond.

Aside from breeding frogs, players will be able to get new frogs by ordering them in-game as well as trading frogs with friends via Plus+. There are also plans to have various challenges to breed certain frogs which rotate on a weekly and monthly basis and the frog store will rotate on a daily with new frogs to buy with in-game currency. NimbleBit is still hashing out plans on exactly how they're going to monetize Pocket Frogs, but have assured me that players will be able to access absolutely everything in game for free and whatever in-app purchases they finally decide on will be intended for serious frog breeders and otherwise entirely optional.

Pocket Frogs will be a free download, available for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, and will take advantage of the iPhone 4's high-resolution Retina display. The game is slated for a September 15th launch, and those who download the title in its first week will receive an exclusive frog, the 'Black Floris Tribus'.

    Made me laugh Is "frog management" a new iOS game genre? :)

      Made me grin, too. That's just a funny phrase, whether it's a genre or not.

    Got to try this game out for a few hours. I love it. It's obviously not an action packed game, but for a game that requires you to breed frogs, it has wasted a LOT of my time so far, in a good way. :P

    Just spent a few minutes with this game and it is amazing. Super polished graphics and I can tell this is going to be addictive. Awesome on the iPad.

    Just wonderful. It's very well-polished. Great graphics, and as earlier stated, the gameplay isn't terribly fast, but just fast enough to keep you coming back for more. I've already wasted a lot of time on it. And heck, it's free! So when it comes out, I suggest you all give it a try.

    Looks boring and a perfect way to loose your cash quickly.
    Some reviews above mine looks suspiciously fake !

    • David Horinek

      That's true. I would love to see true Pokemon game like those on Game Boys! I want to trade Pokemons and not frogs :D

    • ImNoSuperMan

      None of them are fake. They are all from forum members who have been on TA for months. None of them needs to do this.
      Anyways, I got a code as well for the game. Didnt think I'll enjoy it really, but it definitely sucked me in for hours. As far as IAPs are concerned, so far I didnt feel any need to buy anything there. My only is for the dev. How the hell is he going to make any money here :P

    • Rollon

      The reviews are definitely not fake. I know these people from the forum and they're genuinely interested in the game, as are a lot of other people. There's no requirement to spend money so if you cave in and pay up, that's your problem.

    • Saintsalive

      I got it early too and haven't spent a dime, though I know I will when I can.

      The IAPs are more optional than anything, they're consumable and are used for convenience purposes only, to speed things up.
