    Ignore the weird title

    Yeah thats right Frogger is on the iPhone but not the iPod Touch? Why I have no clue and its a pretty stupid move on Konamis part not to release the game on the iPod Touch.

    The game is $9.99 and looks to be overpriced.

    More of my thoughts.

    Have you tried it on a Touch?

    No, its $9.99 and it says its compatible with only the iPhone wtih 2.0 software.

    I am not going to risk $9.99 on something like this, I have to buy my books for school next week I need every penny.

    Perhaps it relies heavily on the vibrate function for gameplay, which the iPod Touch doesn't support? I have no idea, but I agree, supporting one and not the other is a bad business move any way you slice it.

    At $9.99 I'll take a pass too. Jusst a note though, iLounge says that it does work on the Touch even though the AppStore page says iPhone only.

    I've emailed Konami Mobile Support. I'll report back if I get an answer.

    Blech! :confused: The game's not available in the UK Store for some reason, so I can't offer my two cents on the subject...

    Here's the response I got from Konami:

    So I guess it really doesn't work with the Touch. Makes no sense though. The iLounge editors apparently have had no problem loading it up and playing on their iPod Touch.
