Penguin Palooza Provides Plenty Of Things Beginning With P

Posted by Jennifer Allen on January 23rd, 2012

Who can resist a cute, cartoon penguin? I know I can't and neither can anyone else in their right mind. Enter Penguin Palooza, a game that appreciates the adorable nature of the flightless birds.

It's a physics based puzzle game that requires drawing lines on the screen in order to bounce the penguins from one side of the screen to the other - kind of like creating a trampoline. It's a simple concept but a fun one nonetheless.

36 different challenges will keep the player busy with all sorts of additions such as baby penguins and huge birds and fish. Two different game modes are available for the iPhone version with global leaderboards providing much of the competition. The iPad version additionally includes includes split-screen multiplayer.

Check out the gameplay video for Penguin Palooza below.

It's out now priced at $0.99 each for the iPhone and iPad versions.

Hands-On Preview: Reckless Racing from Pixelbite and Polarbit

Posted by Jeff Scott on July 21st, 2010

Reckless Racing, from Pixelbite and Polarbit, soon to be published by EA, was originally called Deliverence when we first looked at it in March. Since then, Polarbit have adjusted the release, the name, and decided to release it as an EA Partner release. Which is all well and good as the game seems pretty much unchanged other than the name. It's all here, the multiple play modes, different control modes, online multiplayer (take note EA), and fantastic realism. Though it does look like they had to get rid of the orange Dukes of Hazard General Lee look-alike car and replace it with a blue one. Oh well.

First, a little recap. Reckless Racing is a top down, 3/4 view racer with up to 6 cars on the track at once. You control your racer around 12 different tracks in three different play modes (Dirt Rally, Hot Lap, Delivery). The game is rendered in really nice 3D -- both the cars and the scenery. Really looking forward to the online multiplayer -- this should be interesting. It didn't appear that it was using any of the known social gaming networks (OpenFeint, Plus+, etc.) and could either be a custom one or details are just hidden.

Dirt Rally is a progressive career mode where you get medals for winning races and that leads to unlocking more and more race tracks (12 in total). Hot Lap has you competing for the fastest time in a lap. And the interesting Delivery mode has you hook up a trailer to your car -- which causes all kinds of interesting driving. Delivering your trailer contents (or what's left of them) at the end of the race and within a time limit nets you a dollar amount (the more that stays in the trailer, the more you earn).

More good news today though -- even though it wasn't available to take a look at, Reckless Racing will also be coming to the iPad. From the screenshots (see below), it looks pretty fantastic on the iPad, I can't wait to try it. Here's the original video when the game was still called Deliverance.

Reckless Racing will be out sometime this summer. Considering it has to be almost done, I hope that really means soon!
