Under rating threshold (show) Definitely need an upgrade to collecting money. Preferably a radius so it doesn't have to go to the EXACT tip of your mouse.

Under rating threshold (show) I would like an upgrade to their brain power so they can learn to walk around obstacles. :P

Under rating threshold (show) It would be extremely nice if you either A: gave us enough time at the end of a level to collect eggs, or B: made them autocollect at the end of a level. A collection upgrade (magnet) would also be really nice. Otherwise, nice game.

Under rating threshold (show) "Penguins are a very interesting species. They can live in any terrain, can don armor, and even take a bullet... however millions of innocent penguins die every year from their inability to walk around walls."

Under rating threshold (show) If you're going to leave the penguins retarded, at least allow us to blow up obstacles with bombs.

Under rating threshold (show) In an otherwise great game, penguins walking into walls when there are enemies RIGHT NEXT TO THEM and DYING because they are too stupid to do anything else is just too annoying. Then money disappearing because you have to move the mouse exactly over-top of the eggs just adds to the frustration. These seem more arbitrary than mechanical because there is NO WAY around them other than bombing the turtles on the other side of the wall - meaning you miss out on collecting more money because you have to spend time clicking the bomb.

Developer response from Xdragonx10

Give them a break, they're not the smartest creatures in the world. One crazy one even thinks it can learn to fly.

Under rating threshold (show) Wow. This game is just not fun at all. All the buttons are incredibly small, the screen transitions are slow and out of place, and it's just an overall unintuitive game. I hardly need a tutorial when the game plays itself. I don't need hand-holding when all I have to do is collect the money dropped and use that to buy upgrades. I could figure that much out myself. I'm just here for the badge of the day. Got it and now I'm out of here.

Under rating threshold (show) I thought 5/5 this game is awesome, but after penguins kept running into walls or chased disappearing and respawning turtles over the whole map and dying in the process instead of just killing the normal turtle right next to it, this is just a 3/5 game...

Under rating threshold (show) There are three things that this game desperately needs... 1. Improved penguin AI 2. A better method for collecting eggs 3. Hotkeys (1-4) for the abilities

Under rating threshold (show) Allright, done! Just got the final badge :) Now for my judgement of this game: A good game with a nice idea, good upgrading system, which make for an addictive gameplay, although there are some flaws, for example, penguins do really need an AI upgrade, although this is not that devastating, it is frustrating at times, further, the money collecting system, while a nice idea to keep the player active, gets very distracting at times, as you'll want to maximize convieniency on your power-ups & extra penguin, the money system can make this difficult at times. All in all, a creative and good game, but it's still a little rough around the edges, 4/5.

Under rating threshold (show) For the concept youve come up with, this is a relatively well-executed game (obviously, theres AI issues) but for me there was very little game to actually play, the idea essentially being to follow sprites around a screen. Perhaps (if there is a sequel) Introducing downsides to parts, e.g. zombies are slower, but more powerful, so managing the penguins actually rquires more thought than "buy the best parts", balancing out a team etc. Invariably, it seems, the most upgraded penguin seems to get stuck on cacti, bushes etc but thats not anything that hasnt been said before. A choice to upgrade the collector would be nice, and hotkeys for the powerups. A reasonably executed game that requires a lil tweaking. 4/5

Under rating threshold (show) The rate at which money is disappearing is way too quick on later levels - i am missing a lot of it. BUT the starving mechanic makes me rush levels.

Under rating threshold (show) it's so annoying that my penguins always get stuck in a corner of some obstacles because of a turtle on the other side so the i bomb that turtle, then like 10 second later it gets stuck in another corner because of the same shit happened again

Under rating threshold (show) I would suggest discarding the mouse-for-loot mechanic entirely. It doesn't mix well with other mechanics of the game. Certain kinds of successful penguin actually DECREASE your income, because they kill turtles very quickly very far apart, preventing you from mousing to the loot in time. Also, if everything dies very quickly, you loose a ton of loot on the board when the level closes. If income is meant to scale with the success of your penguins, the loot should be automatic. It's not like mousing for loot is all that much fun in itself. It's collision with other mechanics makes it actually annoying, I think.

Under rating threshold (show) If an upgrade that allows your penguins to walk through walls exists, all the other upgrades would mean nothing since it counteracts the braindead AI! Seriously though, the AI is definitely the most frustrating part of the game.

Under rating threshold (show) I agree with the comments about money collecting, that was probably the most annoying part of a pretty good game for me. The penguins are a little dumb, and hot keys would be nice, but those didn't ruin the game. I have to say, though, I am on the last few levels, and the most I've seen collecting money is $200. Most of the later upgrades are $10,000 to $30,000. This means that I spend a lot of my time finding and grabbing turtle's balls. I cannot say that this makes me happy.

Under rating threshold (show) I'm not sure a species that manages to regularly miss hitting turtles (which aren't known for their agility on land), can't walk around obstacles to (literally) save their lives and explodes when they're too hungry deserves being supported.

Under rating threshold (show) If it weren't for the badges, I would've quit after about level 5. There is little reward for skill, it's almost all based on how much time you're willing to grind on it.
