If you loved Happy Feet, or infamous games like the original Helicopter, then you’re in for a treat with The Little Penguin That Could, from Fensi Mobail Solyushns OOO. This game allows you to fly through the air, using touch screen controls to pump the wings of an adorable penguin.
Time your touches perfectly to sail between one obstacle and through another, toward ultimate penguin victory. If you mess up, you’ll crash into a massive wall of ice. If you time it correctly, you’ll squeak through the air into the next area, moving constantly toward the goal and striving for arctic greatness.
This game is free, and starts you off with three snowflakes. These snowflakes can be used to continue your adventure once a massive ice-wall or other obstacle has derailed you. Once these snowflakes are used up, you’re in for a riskier journey, and the next fall can end your game.
You are also able to buy additional boosts and items via in app purchases. These can compliment your gaming experience, but aren’t all that necessary, as The Little Penguin That Could is a highly interactive, challenging, and fluid gaming experience in its original state.
Certain gamers who experience success, or are eyeing the top-spot, may want to take it to the next level via in app purchases.
Concept and Functionality:
This game runs nicely, and doesn’t quit or exhibit signs of any type of bug or glitch. No lagging, no unnecessary crashing, and overall, this app runs smooth as ice (had to do it).
The concept isn’t new, but it incorporates a classic touch-to-fly gaming experience that has become a staple through classics like this one. The concept is sound, the app runs well, and you’ll hear no complaints from us here.
I wouldn’t necessarily spring for any of these in app purchases unless you are a particularly fierce and determined gamer. For the rest of us, you’ll find that this app is free, lightweight, and crisp.
If you loved games like Helicopter, and enjoy navigating through tight situations, then The Little Penguin That Could is going to be an absolute delight. Download today, and take flight!
