Pingus is a video game in which the star is the official Linux pet, where the player commands lots of little animals which have to be guided in other levels.
As the animals go walking by themselves, the player also can influence them giving them orders as building a bridge, digging a hole, or moving them in other direction. The goal of each phase is to get to the exit.
Pingus is presented in 2D and it was launched in august 25 of 2007, and started being developed in 1998. Once we download Pingus in our computers we will find 2 different game modes: "Levelsets" where, as previously explained, it´s necessary to guide the other penguins until the exit unblocking the rest of the phases and the mode “Story” that is a tutorial that helps us to learn the basic of the game.
The game counts with 22 levels that will increase its difficulty as we pass the previous levels. So we can conclude that Pingus is a game that will addict you, where it is necessary to use a strategy to get to the goal, but at the same time very easy and funny to learn.
