NimbleBit is already enjoying great success with two of its latest freemium games, Tiny Tower and Pocket Planes. That doesn’t mean, though, that it has completely abandoned its first ever freemium game, Pocket Frogs.
After over a year of hibernation, the popular game that lets you collect, breed, and trade pint-sized amphibians has today received not just a mere update, but a major one.
Now at version 2.0, Pocket Frogs offers 46 new frog breeds for you to collect. This new set effectively gives you tens of thousands more breed combinations to try.
Furthermore, the new version of Pocket Frogs lets you share your frogs on Twitter and Facebook.

But perhaps the one change that longtime players should take note of is the game’s switch from plus+ to Game Center.
“The plus+ network is removed in this version,” stresses NimbleBit. “If you have an old game saved on plus+ you’ll need to restore an old version of the game before updating on your device to retain your game.”
Now that Game Center has become the standard for iOS games, it’s only sensible of NimbleBit to have Apple’s social gaming network replace ngmoco’s.
Beginning with version 2.0, Game Center shall facilitate backups and gifting in Pocket Frogs.
Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, Pocket Frogs is available now in the App Store for free.
