iPhone App Video Review: Air Penguin

Apr 22, 2011

Air Penguin is an app created by the developer Gamevil. It’s a casual arcade game featuring one of the most popular creatures in mobile gaming ever, the bird. This time around, you play as a penguin who has a calling to bounce on ice blocks floating in the water.

The entire game is handled by tilting your device in a specific direction. The closest I can compare its gameplay to is the iPhone classic Doodle Jump. This game definitely tends to be much hard as you are handling the addition of one more axis.

The graphics in the game weren’t anything too crazy but worked well with the theme. The game comes with two different modes to pick from in an attempt to provide decent options. The game offers a store where you can purchase fish which can then be used to purchase powerups for use in-game.

Overall, the game ends up being a little too casual and doesn’t offer too much substance. But who am I to judge? At the time of this review, the app was sitting comfortably at the top of the App Store list. Check it out.
