Air Penguin is an addictive game of skill in which you take control of a penguin with a spring in his step and lead him on a quest over the Antarctic.
The object of Air Penguin is to guide the bouncing bird across a series of ice platforms, negotiating the many obstacles in your way. The screen scrolls vertically and you control the penguin by tilting the screen. You must make sure he lands onto the ice platforms without falling into the water.
Besides just jumping, Air Penguin also sees you ride turtles, skate across ice shelves and even fly along on the breeze. This varied gameplay helps keep Air Penguin interesting for a long time, and it's just as addictive as that other great bird soaring game, Angry Birds.
The are two different game modes in Air Penguin: Story and Survival. Story mode is played out over a series of levels, in which you need to reach the fag to proceed, while Survival is all about avoiding falling in the icy water for as long as you can.
As well as trying to get to the end, you should also be collecting fish along the way. These fish can be exchanged for power-ups that can help you progress through levels. Air Penguin even has its own store where you can buy more fishes with real money. You may need to take advantage of this because eventually it becomes very difficult to collect enough fish to buy new power-ups.
Air Penguin looks nice, is easy to control and fun to play. A great way to kill time when it's frosty outside!
