Penguin is a very simple, one-touch platformer with a generic, but lovable… well, penguin.
The graphics are basic, but clean, and the most complex feature is that of the penguin subject with its reactive animations and facial expressions. The other graphics, however, become bland and repetitive, with level changes consisting of simple color changes to the ground just beneath the thin snow layer.
The game play features a one-touch control for diving and sliding downhill. For the most part this works for the game, but often the player has no choice but to slam into a steep incline or dive early at an inopportune time, and cut their losses with a decreased speed.
Penguin is simple enough that players will not be turned off after many tries, but with little difference between levels the game does get tedious.
Overall, Penguin is a good way to kill some time and just chill.
Who says penguins can’t fly? With your help, this Penguin can and does fly through a colorful, fun landscape. Easy to start with simple, one-touch controls to dive or fly. Keep practicing your timing to build momentum, taking Penguin to new heights and lands.
