Arctic Escape (DSiWare)

Game Profile

Take control of a bunch of penguins that are always getting into all sorts of trouble.

A cunning scientist abducted them from Antarctica, and now they need your help to get back home. Lead them safely through more than 100 frosty levels by using commands such as walking, jumping and waiting.

Guide them to avoid broken ice areas, falling cages, wolves and other dangerous obstacles. This special top-down-view puzzle game is easy to pick up but impossible to put down.
