8 bit bedtime stories

I needed to distract 3.95-year-old Lily the other day. So I started telling her a story about a frog who needs to cross a river, but it's too far for him to jump all at once, so he has to make his way across on various rocks, floating logs, swift-moving crocodiles...

Tanya immediately recognized the hallowed plot to Frogger (free online version of the arcade classic).

I think this could be expanded. Donkey Kong, at any rate, has a lot of potential.

This points up a mystery, though: why would a frog die from falling into the water?
