Hasbro Interactive (1996-1999)the triangular rocket. All the action bumps into the screen, forming the Hasbro triangle logo, surrounded by many descending sparks.

Then the spheres appears again, spin around the pyramid (which becomes 2D) and takes their usual places on the Hasbro logo. The words "HASBRO Interactive" moves in with a door-closing effect and the logo sparkles.

Cheesy Factor: Nice concept, but the music seems to be a bit synchronized.

5th Logo
(1999-2000)

Hasbro Interactive (Custom)

Nicknames: "Electrons", "The Space Triangle IV", "Hasbro Triangle IV"

Logo: Some colored electrons move around a blue atom. The camera zooms-out to reveal the space full of debris, then the triangle cuts off the space and makes the blue sphere inside it, surrounded by electrons as in the usual Hasbro logo. The logo is outlined. Suddenly the red electron enters, making the way to its place and the logo shines to reveal "LET'S PLAY!" below the picture.

FX/SFX: The color electrons moving.

Music/Sounds: A "sshhh" sounds of flying electrons, followed by an ascending noisy tune.

Availability: Very rare, as it was seen on only two games: Frogger 2 for the PlayStation and PC, and the 1999 PC version of Monopoly. Both are hard to find now.

Scare Factor: Low.
