Edit: If the game seems laggy, play it in the popup instead of in the same browser.

Your goal is to find the lost baby penguins and bring them up to the surface. Peng will follow your mouse, clicking will cause two things to happen: A stun where your cursor is, and peng will perform a spinning attack at the same time. Moving the screen is done with WASD but can be changed in the settings or even set to move with the mouse if you prefer. Settings and a map can be found in the menu accessible anytime during gameplay by pressing Z. Holding space will make peng stay where he is and shift will make the baby penguins stay where they are. That should be enough info if you don't feel like following the tutorial.

Great news!!!

This is good for a penguin game. i'm going to say you did well.
Penguins are my faverote animal.
[p.s. glad your are polite ;)]

AndyBrown responds:

Thanks :D Most of the penguin games I've seen have been either.. cyborg penguins.. magic penguins... or hurting penguins. I wanted to try to make something a little different lol. Doesn't appeal to everyone though.


This seemed good, the graphics were done fairly well, it works pretty well, my only complaint is shift did nothing for me. Dont know if thats just me though.

Good game though 6/10

( Yeah I can be tough, oh well. )

AndyBrown responds:

Thanks! Hmm.. not sure why shift doesn't work for some people.. Perhaps it has to do with the keyboard since its set to ASCII or whatever numbers to identify the key... might work if you try changing the keybindings in the options menu.


i really enjoyed it, i love saving baby penguins!

AndyBrown responds:

Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it :D


got boring real fast

AndyBrown responds:

We shall try our best to bring you less boring games next time :D

OK game

Has a good concept and well designed gameplay. The story is good but the music gets a little annoying after awhile. Overall very nice.

AndyBrown responds:

Thanks a lot! We would have used longer loops and more songs but we wanted to keep the filesize of the game under 5 megabytes. Glad you liked the rest through!
