You can use keyboard or joystick to play the game. Control Pinwi with the joystick and shoot with the fire button. 
The snowballs will be thrown in the direction that we are pressing.  There are 5 possible directions: left, up, right and their diagonals.

Slide and dodge. 

By pressing the lower diagonals (down-left and down-right) the player will be able to slide sideways and dodge enemy shots in the meantime. During the slide you will not be able to shoot. Use it wisely.

A: Down

Muy adictivo y,  para mi, el verdadero ganador de la "CPC Retrodev 2022"...había que decirlo y se dijo.

Cómpralo, no te arrepentirás. Simplemente genial!!!

Muchas gracias. ❤

Menudas viciadas están cayendo a este Penguin Attack! Un trabajo excelente, a nivel sonoro (con varias pistas),  gráfico (unos diseños de sprites y animaciones geniales asi como los propios niveles) y jugable (con una suavidad en el control del personaje genial). Presiento que van a seguir cayendo muchas partidas. Mil gracias!

Muchísimas gracias!! Eso espero, que hasta el domingo hay tiempo de enseñar esos peaso de records. 😄

Vaya viciada de juego, boooooommmmmm
