P0 Penguins have lost their way and will have to cross a cliff to get back to their homes. As a Seal, you have to help them cross the cliff safely by balancing their jumps on your nose. Use your mouse cursor to move the Seal. Balance the Penguins jumps on Seal's nose and help them cross safely to the other side. Be careful of the falling Iceballs. DailyFreeGames.com

Good thing there were penguins

I sometimes found penguins phasing straight threw me, and other times noticed that it was in fact impossible to make saves. It was a little boring and at some points technically impossible. Good thing there were penguins to save this.

popping out

+++ I like the style of everything. Has a cool, crisp feel. Clouds are specially pretty.

- Penguins are cross-eyed.

-- Hittests can feel unfair. After last time, I realised that I need to get them to hit the nose exactly as they cross that horizontal line. It's understandable, but still feels odd and overly exacting when the penguins pass through the nose from the side.

---- Often, missing a penguin or losing a life felt unavoidable as penguins fell near-simultaneously or icicles fell at the same position as a penguin.

---- No feeling of risk or any surprises. 3 different bounce-patterns and icicles just aren't enough. 30 'lives' too many. And we should be reminded of how many we can kill somehow.

----- Early levels involve a long 'wait' in between each 'touch' we need to make.

Played this when it was released. Got to 16. Seeing it still in the portal, I was intrigued to see whether it actually got any better.

The last level did seem to have some challenge. But despite so many losses, I still won. Most losses were due to my increasing apathy or lack of concentration, around 10 felt forced upon me.

This, to me, just seems like a far worse version of that 'Fire Escape' G+W. There, partially due to the technical limitations, we never felt 'cheated' by any timing or collision detection issues. However, the high number of folk popping out and the lower number of lives ensured faster, more frantic, gameplay.

This just seemed boring.

good one

that was a pretty fun and interesting game you have here. it had a pretty cool and original idea and concept to it, great drawings, good gameplay, served as a great time killer and it was a lot of fun to play. i enjoyed this one, good work on it.

Addicting and mastered!

It's a very well thought out and polished game. It definately shouldn't be blammed. It has good potential and if he made a sequal. Although, i'm not sure you actually made it.


haha, really good. it was a creative game, but the music was annoying so i'm glad you could turn it off. sometimes the penguin lands right on the seals nose though, and then it dies.
