Frogger Coleco Tabletop Arcade - Model 2393
(Coleco - 1982)
This novel mini arcade shaped cabinet houses an extremely playable version of the arcade hit, Frogger. The egg shaped joystick is easily manipulated by your left thumb and is responsive and auto centers quickly. Your right thumb or finger operates the jump button. The small multi-color VFD screen (vacuum fluorescent display) is vivid and bright, but is still big enough to show the action without feeling cramped. The cabinet is constructed of sturdy plastic.
As with the other Coleco Tabletop arcade units, the glue that was used to hold the stickers to the cabinet bleeds through over time, giving the decals a spotted, mottled look. It is rare to find one of these Frogger units that has stickers in clean condition.
Unfortunately, the battery cover under the unit is lost pretty easily, so make sure this cover is intact when purchasing one of these. the battery cover has a mini set of instructions adhered to it. It holds four C cell batteries or Coleco's optional Perma Power AC power adapter.
