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) This could really use hotkeys for the abilities. The mouse is kept so busy collecting money that there really isn't any time to go click on an icon. This is especially true of the bombs, and they're made almost useless by this. Also, an upgrade to make the money easier to pickup would be nice.

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) 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) 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) Next on the list of gripes for the "Why exactly do you do it this way?" category of game development: Hotkeys. It's incredibly annoying to have to return to the lower corner of the screen, click, then click back somewhere in the field in a game where you're expected to have your mouse handy to pick up items at all times. Even more so when the icons in the corner don't always seem to recognize that you're clicking -- when I need a bomb, I don't need a bomb two or three seconds from now, I need it NOW to take out that tankurtle.

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) 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) 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) To make game godly add: bestiary - tells what kind of turtles there are Loot system - power up that gets more money amount or range of pull Penguin prioritizing - tells the penguins which kind to attack Dominance - dominant penguin attacks more and uses more energy while non dominant attacks less but uses less health. (this is not important) Health - instead of missing the penguins shoul lower the health of the turtles. And the beaks should have a 'damage' section or 'power'

Under rating threshold (show) 2/5. I wish I could give more, but it still lacks too much to say it's a finished and polished game. First off - penguin AI. Everyone mentioned it. Second: Terrible collecting mechanics. I mean, for starters it's OK, but later on you SHOULD be able to upgrade the collect radius/speed. And third - hotkeys for the "abilities" (speed, extra penguin, etc) such as 1, 2, 3, 4 would be very welcome.
