Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Bobby Carrot is a puzzle game, the object of which is to collect all of the carrots in an area, and then reach a point on the map that progresses the player to the next level. In addition, there is an alternative mode where Bobby Carrot creates Easter eggs in his path, made more challenging by the fact they cannot be passed over twice.
Throughout the game, players are met with various obstacles, from steel rabbit traps and sliding gates to locks needing a key. Subsequent games added water, tractors, and a bazaar to the initial concept.
Installments[edit | edit source]
FDG released the first Bobby Carrot in 2004, and soon followed with a sequel. The game continued to see installments in 2005, 2006, and 2008. In all, there are five Bobby Carrot titles for mobile phones:
- Bobby Carrot
- Bobby Carrot 2: Winterland
- Bobby Carrot 3: Evolution

In addition, FDG has released an expansion pack entitled Bobby Carrot 5: Level Up!, while the iPod and WiiWare versions of the fifth game, retitled Bobby Carrot Forever, feature enhanced graphics, music and animated cut scenes.
Bobby Carrot 5: Forever will be the last game in the series.
