[prMac.com] Fair Grove, Missouri - Already a hit with the TouchArcade crowd, Penguin Glide is a charming little adventure laid out on a new and addictive game mechanic on the AppStore.
You touch and hold the platforms for them to become solid so the little penguin can continue on his journey. Unlike your typical puzzle game though, Penguin Glide throws in some real action in the mix, with epic boss battles, amusing cut-scenes, mini-games and more!
Worth mentioning: The penguin is very cute. So cute in fact that 99% of reviewers specifically mentioned it. So who does not love a cute bird? (That's not Angry)
The game feels like a throwback to the glory days of the SNES system, with a lot of depth when compared to the typical iPhone release. The game is still approachable to the casual gamer, as the action takes place in short bursts, giving you the feeling of a genuine pick-up-and-play title. Dramatic and funny cut-scenes spice up the action to create a cinematic feeling throughout the game.
Penguin Glide also really takes advantage of the multi-touch capabilities of the iPhone/iPad with intense action puzzle that require quick thinking and fast fingers.
It's the 'Feel Good' game of the Holiday Season, so check out this YouTube vid of the gameplay and intro, courtesy TouchGamePlay.
