Yes the game has its cons, it made me smile, but my smile was immediately taken away when I realized that the penguins cant switch targets and have incredibly poor AI which doesn't allow them to search for a way around the obstacles. Made me stuck on lvl 15 with 3 penguins simply because of that one flaw.

Another poorly designed game as a daily feature...

I'm sorry but I found this game to be highly irregular in very bad ways. For one, the AI of the penguins is very simplistic. And it loves to get stuck on walls whenever it can. It's amazing how long one (or all) of them will sit there running face first into a wall and never move. Either remove the walls in the middle of the levels or program the AI to plot a path around them somehow. That's just shoddy work. :/ Second is the fact that results are inconsistent. What do I mean by this? I replayed the same level multiple times with the same exact power ups, not changing anything... and I had failures as well as successes. This. Should. Not. Happen. EVER! The fact that it does just takes all the fun right out of this game. Sorry, but in my opinion this doesn't deserve a daily feature if there are glaring flaws like that.

what is this shit ?

annoying music , no logic ( why the fuck is the penguin eating the turtles? ) , boring,
sometimes before he starts eats the turtles it looks he is trying to rape them, the teaching parts are to fucking long and extremely annoying , the only good thing in this game is the music and even it becomes annoying after a while

Casual game yes but... a Game is a Game.

Does casual get very far, no. Specially not with the games these days. Newgrounds to my opinion has never been one for the, "casual."

Time to be a critic.

I enjoyed it for the most part but just watching penguins-Not the very brilliant kind either- Chasing some turtles who seem to also have a lot more I.Q. intelligence then my own army is rather... not that swell. Let's not also forget about the music. It really set me up. Extremely... big set up.

I thought it was going to be like, "Oh hell yeah! kick ass!" No.. just watching some penguins.. chase after turtles.... with guns... note taking the turtles have guns. There wasn't much to upgrade either.

Seriously: is this upgrading?
When it comes down to it, people like me[Speaking of which...]just... not exactly in to this kind of thing. It's fun for a few minutes. Gets boring after a few levels. I'm currently made it to the second stage and so far, luck is now evolved. Making my way past and through the other levels. It was ultimately the same.. same thing.

I have to say, please for the love of everything.... get music for every different level that seems to fit the scene of the levels. The whole "Battle epic awesome theme" just... it's dragged out for to long. Even I can pull off a music from a random sight or creator and have it keep playing over and over... then finally realizing.. it's a bit dull.

Though the game hasn't been a total let down. In fact let's be frank. No one can really defy the true meaning of a game. So... now to give you the thumbs up after the thumbs down.

The designs of the game has been wonderful and it seems the scenes of each background with the turtles and penguins are all well done. The upgrades are nice and rather some interesting but not much of a epic choice... Zombie parts making penguins move faster just... doesn't seem to add up. Though hey, who doesn't love zombies. <3

Seriously: This game has intentional means of going over the distance. Perhaps recreation of being able to control one penguin to allow more actual game play which increases... satisfaction. (That and going with the music, hey hey.)

You guys did good and seeing it as some thing hot and new on the front page. It's nice. Would I recommend this game as being a wonderful 10/10 or top 5 games? No.. but as for some thing new and exciting.{If we can even call it that... note taking my thumb up opinion didn't even last a paragraph before a thumb down.} It's rather...eh?...nice?


Not much of a score I know... but besides art, having music, the idea of the game and the purpose with the features of upgrades and acknowledgment the game was going to be some thing "casual" with the author's own comment detaining what "we" should expect.

A game is a game. Like all games, there is a value sense of fun to... dull.
This hits my dull stack. Even Tic tac toe had more entertainment. Harsh to say but that is my honest opinion.

Could I give out any more honesty? No. Perhaps it wasn't all thought out but if there is ever a future game of this. I'm more then willing to actually try that out as well. Anyways...

3/10 Once more. Sorry it's not what you hoped for from some one, but I have to be honest. Boring, Dull, and watching A.I.;s go at it with out much humor, entertainment, or means that appeal to my eyes.

It's like watching a screen saver with things you can do with a mouse.

Good idea though with the concept for the game.
Penguins against turtles. Very nice.

Seriously: Health bar drops even after eating? Makes no sense. Like food that starves you.

I Don't Feel Like I'm Doing Anything

I play a fair share of upgrade games, so I know the score, but I really felt like the interactivity in this game was lacking. I'm pretty much just here as an observer who lazily swipes his mouse around the screen in an effort to collect money. Yeah there were the power-ups too, but they seemed kind of useless. I either didn't utilize them or I'd use them to no effect.

Basically the game is just one long grind for money. The only skill level required is having enough money to buy enough upgrades to beat the next level. And while that's a common theme with many upgrade games, the lack of anything else to do in this game makes it really boring.

I liked the graphics, even the concept, it's just I wasn't having any fun playing this because I wasn't really playing it. And while the "Kingdom Hearts" music was nice to listen to, it didn't really fit here. It kept reminding me about how much more fun I'd be having if I was playing "Kingdom Hearts." Plus KH is a series that is high on the action, so the music fits well to that theme. Here I'm just casually watching penguins do their thing, so the music doesn't really fit the theme. It's too high octane for a game that boils down to watching and waiting.
