Frantic Pengo

Frantic Pengo is a silly new arcade game inspired by Pengo (and to those wonderful Japanese early 80's coin-ops). You play the role of Pengo, the bold and faithful penguin, trying to rescue your true love (Penga) that has been kidnapped by the evil Lava Monsters.

Throughout fourteen screens (including a final boss) you will have to kill all the monsters by crushing them using the available blocks: ice, stones or lava! Simply push the M key while pressing a directional key: the final boss has to be hit several times before dying.

Once all monsters are cleared you will be able to collect your true love's harts and proceed to the next level. Beware: Lava monsters will respawn after death if even just one magic cauldron is in the screen. You can destroy those cauldrons using the blocks.

Some of the enemies cannot be killed: these are the garden snakes and the blue sentinels (which in some screens can also move around).
