Description

Bob wants to open his own restaurant, but has insufficient funding. In order to cover his expenses he has decided to enter the fishing business. Unlike in real life, the fish is already conveniently placed on ice that has drifted away from the shoreline. Bob's goal is to place ice blocks on the water and create a path towards the fish. Penguins working for the rival Herring Hut franchise are aware of his operations and are out to steal Bob's fish.

Penguin Blocks is a puzzle game focused on placing ice blocks strategically so that Bob would reach the fish before the penguins. It's not necessary to gather all the fish in one level. Since there are different types of fish, the player can aim for the expensive one. However, since the player needs to buy a fishing license at the beginning of every round, the amount of money earned must be enough to cover next week's fee. While building a solid path towards the seafood, the player must take into account that Bob needs a passage that is at least two squares wide to pass through. Some levels have pairs of ice holes that are technically shortcuts between packs of ice. It's possible to do combos by connecting two or more fishes to each other, and then build a path towards them. That way Bob will capture all of them in one go. Besides the Undo move option, there are three power-ups which a player can buy and use: the Red Herring is a decoy used to distract penguins, Freeze Penguin stops a penguin for three turns, while 1x1 blocks can cover small patches of water where the usual Tetris-like blocks don't fit.

As Bob gradually earns more money, the player will have the option to buy decorations and upgrades for his restaurant.
