I am not surprised at all that Frog Log won the hearts of my fellow judges and the Grand Prize. It’s a good idea that makes you smile when you first put your hand on it, packed with functionality and a great showcase of what you can do with a few lines of HTML5.

Interesting detail: the author won a second prize last year with a Silverlight application. This proves that a great developer is great independent of the technology he actually uses.

Just a great little game, addictive and well thought out with some interesting gameplay. I would LOVE to see this developed further by the author… My only ding was that drag-n-drop failed in Firefox 3.5; clicking worked fine, though.
