[prMac.com] Derby, United Kingdom - Mighty Crow games announce the release of Penguin Peaks 1.0, a quirky game for iOS. Taking the role of the penguin contestant in the cross-polar skiing tournament, the player must prove himself in each of the qualifying stages before taking on the champion of each mountain. The penguin character is followed by a group of penguin supporters, whose numbers increase as the player progresses. Leaderboard support is a key element to the game, encouraging players to shave fractions of seconds off their course times in a bid to beat their friends.
The game uses a simple tap / slide finger input system to control the penguin; simply tap the screen to punt along using his ski poles and slide a finger up and down to control his balance on the slopes.
"Writing Penguin Peaks has been an absolute pleasure, it feels wonderful to be part of the indie community. I've received many positive comments about the game regarding its charm and quirky nature. I hope people gain as much pleasure from playing it as I had making it." - Chris Long, Founder of Mighty Crow Games.
