Save the Penguins is a new kind of (Tetris-inspired) touchscreen puzzle game. It is a very unique little game, yet extremely easy to learn and play.

The Story
Melting of ice sheets has caused an ice berg to collapse separating the penguins and their friends from each other. Divided by an icy chasm, the animals are in need of your help.

How to Play?
Simply tap the blocks at the bottom to make them go to the top. Try to line them up so that the animals can slide across! New colors fill from the bottom, merging with other blocks to create all kinds of new shapes.

That's the basics! Easy to learn once you try the game. More features such as combos and special powers get introduced as you progress.
