A game paused in progress:
The Hungryfrog German program will also automatically pause if you go away from the keyboard or stop using the mouse for a short time. This is to prevent your tadpole family from all expiring while you go away from the computer for a little bit (AFK). When the game is paused your Time Bonus stays the same and your tadpole count remains unchanged. You can resume at any time by pressing the 'Resume' button.
'Resume' - restarts the game in progress
