Penguin Academy is a new creation, a fun penguin themed play site provided by Living Coasts in the UK. You have to sign up for a free account, where you can pick a penguin type and name for your profile. The front page is apparently flash or something and doesn’t load for me. Ignore that if you have the same problem, and just sign up for the free account so you can play the games. My penguin is a macaroni named “doodle”. :D
There are a number of games you can play, but you can only choose to play the one game until you play so many times and more games will then be “unlocked”. I wish they would let you at least see what the other games are so you know if you want to keep playing or not.
I played two rounds of the first game, Fish feast. It was pretty neat, a more realistic cartoon version of a penguin that swims around and “eats” the fish. Unfortunately, the system wasn’t working correctly, so it didn’t save my score either time.
Try it out for yourself, you might really like it. I think it has potentially, but needs a few of the kinks worked out to really be a fun place for us penguin folk to hang out.
If you check it out, please come back and tell me what you think!
