A prototype of the unreleased port of Frogger 2: Swampy's Revenge for the Nintendo 64.


  • This build was extremely close to if not actually N64 Milestone #5, judging by internal documents.
  • One of the source code backups matches this cartridge fairly closely, which makes it easy to use Ghidra to understand this prototype.
  • The exact build gate has been confirmed by reviewing the changes in the VSS backup and finding the last change to source code seen in the ROM.
  • The final N64 code changes occurred on December 14th, less than two weeks after this build.
  • First known build with music, encoded with very low quality samples. The music is also significantly unfinished compared to the final game.
  • Working sound test menu.
  • Features a hub world.
  • Contains many differences from the final version.
  • Totally new UI from the Milestone #4 prototype.
  • There is an overdump on this cartridge of an earlier build of Frogger 2. It only contains scenic / world data, which unfortunately appears near near identical to this build.
