Here's What Frogger Would Look Like In Google Earth

If you're like most kids who grew up in the 1980s, everything you know about amphibians, highway crossing, and river fording you learned from a video game called Frogger. Since we live in the HD World Of The Future, I thought it'd be fun to see what Frogger would look like in Google Earth.

Frogger's play field described a bit of landscape, seen from overhead. For those of you who may have forgotten, it looked like this:


So, if we take that basic layout, and use bits grabbed from all over Google earth to make this novel landscape of highway and a log-and-turtle-choked river, capped with a cozy series of five frog-friendly inlets, I think we'd end up with something like this:

I went ahead and used a section of highway I was familiar with, the 101, because it's easy to picture an SUV-sized frog leaping across there, for some reason.

Now we just need some eccentric developer to recreate this and breed some colossal frogs with remote-control implants, and we can finally play live-action helicopter Frogger!


It's the dream, people.
