Be careful with this one, just hearing the music more than once can leave you hooked, addicted and unable to focus on anything else! That’s right, the music in Pesky Penguins is both catchy and hard to get out of your head. Or mine, whatever.
Pesky Penguins (PP) is a story about intellectual penguins and adorable adopting kids who want to do nothing buy caress, and hug, and… we’ll leave it to you to figure out what else they want to do.
Point is, the penguins don’t like it, and they want the kids (aka Eskimos) gone. Your job, as an Eskimos is to survive the penguins’ pushy survival tactics and stay on the ice (no pun intended, really), instead of getting pushed off. You can collect power ups, like wash the penguins over with a tidal wave (my personal favorite) or make yourself invisible so they can’t see you.
Problem is, sooner or later you’re going to die, so how long can you survive against these penguins and use the power of collecting fish to call the waters of the deep to wash over the penguins and bring sunshine back to Eskimo life.
- Variety of penguin types power-ups and characters.
- A cockpit full of controls to step aside and survive.
- Cute music and fascinating graphics. Definitely a popular family game.
- Fun for all ages, not just penguin lovers.
- Must switch over to YouTube to watch the background story.
I’m giving this game a 9/10. We look forward to seeing new playing modes in future releases of the game.
