Ribbit is a platforming action game released on July 14th, 2010. The player controls a half-frog half-rabbit creature seeking revenge against Dr. Siamese, who is responsible for merging these creatures together.


Controls

  • Right.png Right arrow key - Turn right

Spinning 180 degrees around so that the other head lands on the platform allows for a super jump, useful for getting up on walls and destroying enemies. If Ribbit turns one hundred eighty degrees after doing a super jump, it will perform a mega jump, making it fly higher and increase the point multiplier.

Gameplay

In the game Ribbit the player must use momentum to use a power jump and to move through the level. Often objects must be bounced over and avoided, and the player must carefully think how to move the character since certain objects will react to the rabbit or frog's head.

Introduction

Levels

Level 1

This level introduces the player to the gameplay. At the beginning of the level is a cloud shaped box that briefly indicates what the player should do in order to move. As ribbit progresses, there will be various hills, from small ones to bigger sized ones, for the player should often modify their movements and powered jumps. Since it is the first level of the game, there is no presence of enemies. Finally the player must have ribbit to reach the checkered ring at the end of the level to complete it successfully.

Level 2

Early in the level, the first enemies are introduced, which are the flyapillars. As the level begins, ribbit will encounter a group of four flyapillars flying together from left to right through two platforms. In order for the player not to get hurt when passing through, ribbit has got to make a super jump, which will at the same time destroy a few flyapillars. After moving further, for the first time in the game, toadabits are introduced appearing as group of three, which if not avoided properly may harm ribbit. However, the player may collect the heart pick-ups nearby to restore ribbit's health if a heart was lost. After jumping out of a gap full of flyapillars, the player will make it to a plain long platform that cointains a bunch of turtarafts (another enemy) walking on it normally from left to right. If ribbit goes further, after a small hill there is an area that has got the checkered ring.

Development

In retrospect, Nitrome felt that Ribbit's gameplay mechanic would have worked better if it was changed in some way[1].

Ribbit's gameplay mechanic was used as the basis of the gameplay mechanic for Go Pogo[2].

Trivia

  • The game's name is based on the name of the half frog half rabbit main character Ribbit. Ribbit's name is a combination of the sound frogs make, ribbit, and rabbit.
