This game for one player has Pengon the penguin travelling through the icy mazes trying to avoid or crush the nasty sea beasts.

There are five skill levels which govern speed of play. You can choose a black, buff or green background.

You must guide the penguin through the ice cube mazes. By using the fire button, you can crush the cubes or push them at the nasties to sandwich them between two cubes. I never knew that penguins could be so vicious, but it is a case of you or them.

There are three easily identifiable magic cubes which cannot be crushed but can be pushed together for a bonus of 1,000 points and progression to the next screen.

At 10,000 points, you get an extra penguin. The graphics are acceptable, but I was disappointed to find that Pengon does not look much like a penguin. The program loaded with no problems but it did take a long time. Despite this, I enjoyed helping Pengon in his travels and in his fight against the beasts.
