The first ever First Penguin Shooter!
- Great gameplay
- Good plot
- Lots of weapons and bonuses
- Crashes when trying to join other players
- Difficult to find players online
Penguins Arena is an enjoyable first person shooter (FPS) with good game play.
In this playful FPS, as a penguin fighting for his tribe's supremacy over the world, you'll have to eliminate all the other penguins, throwing snowballs at them to push them off the island and into the shark ridden waters. Each level is a different island with hills, ice walls and holes.
The game play is pretty intuitive. You use your keyboard to move around and jump and the mouse to shoot. You'll see all the action from the penguin's perspective, which really immerses you in the game. To survive you'll not only have to dodge the other penguins' snowballs but also pick up the bonuses that get scattered around. As you'll advance through the game more weapons , such as bombs, claws or clownfishes will also be available.
The only weak point to the game is the multiplayer mode. When we actually could manage to find other players to fight against, the game crashed, in what seemed to be a memory issue.
An original plot, great game play and lots of bonuses make for a perfect arcade success. It's a shame online play doesn't work well.
