I highly enjoyed this game! It is so adorable, and the puzzles were simple but still made you think! I got stumped on a few occasions. The final stage though... that was all about speed haha. 


Ahhh, this is a fantastic little way to pass some time in the build-up to the holiday season! It's wonderfully challenging, delightfully cute and very rewarding to complete!

It conjures up memories of some of the more classic puzzle games I used to play when I was a nipper. The attention to detail is pretty exquisite, and it never fails to amaze me that a game of sprites and pixels in an old-school layout can still exude so much life and fun!

Honestly worth playing regardless of what time of year it is, I can hardly recommend this one enough! Get stuck in and save your penguin pals!


I definitely agree with the 'cute' tag. It's been fun playing and recording. :) 


Just finished wrapping presents and got some free time to play this. It's short but sweet! I love the game play and graphics, It also feels fun to play which is a hard thing to pull off. The puzzles were just challenging enough too,  loved it!
