Most of it is really cool, and I had a fun time.
My complaints:
Pathfinding AI is non-existent for the penguins, so instead of going around walls they just run at them, which means that you have to use a bomb to kill the turtle the penguin was after.
The music, while cool originally, got old pretty quickly.
The final upgrades were way too expensive to be reasonable, but the levels were easy enough to clear without them.
I beat the final level with 4 zombie penguins, plus the summoned penguin (up to zombie), and on the other hand, the cheapest final upgrade is the robot penguin beak, for 10,000. x5 for the number of penguins, and then x5 for different upgrades and you have $250,000, which is alot cheaper then the actual price.
It's possible to earn, at best, $12,000 points doing the final level.
You could either reduce the cost and effectiveness of each tier of upgrades, or simply remove the robot penguin entirely, without having too much of a consequence on gameplay.

Loved this game

This game was awesome. Pretty simple but fun nonetheless. As for the barriers, I had quite a few penguins get stuck and try going after a turtle on the other side until they died. Klookat, a barrier is only a tactical challenge if you can directly control your units. In a game like this, it's a huge middle finger to the player. I still love this game though.

that was a slog. however, now that its done, i think i can give a fair analysis.
firstly, the leveling. the goodies aren't scaled to the level. by this i mean i was raking 13000+ in 30, but only 6000 in level 35ish, which just encourages grinding. and there is no real reward for finishing the game, so the grinding just makes you dislike the game.

the penguins are far too retarded. they get stuck on blocks because their target is on the other side, and as no other penguin will target it untill all other targets are taken, that stuck penguin will most likely die. also, if a penguin has just killed a turtle, and there is a turtle very close to it, it won't go for it because another penguin on the other side of the map has already targeted it. a fluid targeting system may make the experience better. or less retarded penguins.

the core gameplay is great.

finally, someone mentioned an upgrade for the money magnet. that would be a great idea. or an upgrade so the eggs stay on the screen for longer.

all in all, a pretty good game.

Overal a fun game with only minimal need for level-grinding.

I did spot a minor glitch that the clever cheater can exploit though, if you have enough money for a higher upgrade, you don't have to pay for the lower ones in between.

Pretty good game

I liked this game. It wasnt super unique or anything, but i had fun, and that's what counts :) The abilities were cool, upgrading was nice, and the variety of enemies was pretty cool too (CURSE those decoy launching turtles! *shakes fist*).

However, at the end, you just get a 'GAME COMPLETE' and then it jumps to the credits? come on guys, you could have at least given us a picture or something on how the penguins saved the world.

Still, good fun game, penguins rule, and robo penguins rule harder :3
