Description

As any veteran gamer will have already realised, Pengwyn is based on Sega's Pengo. You guide your penguin around a maze made of ice blocks, and your task is to move three special blocks into a row. To do this, the penguin can crush blocks to get them out of the way, or push them so that they slide until they bump into something. Unfortunately, dangerous Snowbees live in some of the ice blocks and will come out to haunt the penguin. These, too, can crush the ice blocks, and the penguin's only chance of survival is to push ice blocks at them so that they are crushed in the process.

Trivia

C64 and ZX Spectrum versions

Pengwyn was advertised for both the C64 and ZX Spectrum, but neither version was released. Perhaps Postern came to realise that there was already an over-abundance of Pengo clones for those formats, or possibly the company just ceased to exist before those versions reached market.
