icon Frog Feast is a retro-style tribute to the classic console games Frog Bog, Frogs and Flies, and the arcade game Frogs.

Frog Feast is a game for one or two players, each player controls a Frog sitting on a Lily pad, the aim of the game is to jump off the Lily pad and eat more flies than your opponent within a time limit. The game is a tribute to Mattel Electronics' Frog Bog released in 1982 for the Intellivision system, an Atari 2600 version of Frog Bog was also released by Mattel in 1982 titled Frogs and Flies. Both Mattel titles were very similar to the single player arcade game Frogs developed by Sega and Gremlin Industries in 1978.

Frog Feast was mainly a programming test, gauging the difficulty of porting a simple game to numerous orphaned systems, the game has been ported to Neo Geo CD, CD-I, Sega CD, Atari Jaguar and many other systems. A separate port of the game was also made in 2007 for the Colecovision system.

A test demo of the Dreamcast port of Frog Feast was released by RasterSoft in September 2007, the demo has the Flies disabled so there's no points to score within the time limit of the game. The CD Image available features the Dreamcast demo version along with a host of Frog Feast extras.

A release date of November 15, 2007 for the Dreamcast version of Frog Feast was announced by the retro game publisher OlderGames on October 5, 2007. Amiga CD32 and FM Towns MARTY versions of the game were to be released simultaneously with the Dreamcast version. The OlderGames company name and website was sold in December 2007.

The Dreamcast version of Frog Feast was released as a Limited Edition of only 100 units, each unit was made to order, once the game was purchased, the buyer would receive the game burnt to a CD-R with a printed label, the CD was supplied in a DVD case with a printed cover, both the CD label and DVD cover were numbered 1 to 100/100. It's quite possible that only 100 units being available from OlderGames was an attempt to create a rare game for the Dreamcast console, and this strategy might have worked had the game been commercially pressed.

Due to original copies of the game being supplied on CD-R, almost exact duplication was easily achieved, an unknown number of copies are available and randomly appear on auction sites as 'genuine' with ridiculously high asking prices.
