It's beautiful Antarctic sunny day and young Tooks the Penguin enjoys fishing with his mother. But happiness is suddenly interrupted by evil polar beer (polar beer? o_O) who kidnaps the parent. Tooks is devastated at first, but quickly braces up, grabs his trusty umbrella and runs to the rescue.
Penguin Adventure is divided into five worlds, each containing four levels. The goal in each first three levels is to reach exit as quick as possible in order to receive bronze, silver or gold medal. Fourth level is usually maze-like and contains three differently coloured exits, one of which must be reached before time runs out.
Contrary to majority of platformers, it's impossible to "die" in PA and you have unlimited number of tries per level. There are obstacles like crumbling blocks and enemy polar bears on your way, but environment isn't lethal, only slows you down. However simple finishing of each level with bronze medal is not enough - before entering next world Tooks must upgrade his umbrella with new special power and shopkeeper Walter the Walrus demands enough medal points in exchange.
Umbrella upgrades include floating, block-breaking, grappling and pogo-jumping abilities. Some of them will help Tooks earn gold medals in earlier levels.
Chroelle : This one as it seems to have so much going for it. Lots of gameplay, and lots of upgrades that change the way you play the game - however it is a bit on the redundant side with the same type backgrounds over and over... But it does fit the plot of the game very nicely.
A great little game with more than half an hour of gameplay. Propably hours if you play it right and to the max.
eMTe : You control Tooks the penguin through 5 different worlds with nothing at his side but his trusty umbrella in an adventure to find his mother, who has been kidnapped by evil polar bear. Throughout his adventures, his umbrella is upgraded, allowing you to take his explorations to new bounds. Each world consists of 4 different levels, 3 of which require Tooks to get to the exit as quickly as he can, and the final level requiring Tooks to find the best path out within a certain time. Tooks can run, jump, slide on his belly, swipe with his umbrella and use his various upgrades to navigate his 2-D platform environment, avoid obstacles, and defeat enemies.
