Antartic Adventure ist allein fast die Anschaffung das ColecoVision-Systems wert. Man hat endlich wieder einmal riesigen Spaß beim Spielen — zumindest gilt das für sämtliche (wirklich ausnahmslos!) Testspieler und für mich. Etwas Schöneres habe ich auf diesem System noch nicht gespielt.

Für Konami war das Spiel ein echter Überraschungserfolg. Kein Wunder, ist es doch durch seine unkomplizierte Spielweise schnell und einfach zu erlernen. Gepaart mit einer niedlichen Optik und einem angenehm fordernden Schwierigkeitsgrad wurde das Spiel schnell zum Hit und das auf vielen Systemen. Da man an seinem neuen Maskottchen Gefallen gefunden hatte, feierte dieser sogar in einigen hauseigenen Spielen diverse Gastauftritte. Der bekannteste dürfte wohl in Parodius sein, in dem er auch einer der spielbaren Charaktere war.

Antarctic Adventure's lack of variety is a real shame as improving the level design and adding further enemy types would have made it much more enjoyable. However, the gameplay is decent and it's certainly worth a look if you like early Arcade platformers.
Antarctic Adventure isn't the most dynamic game, but if you boost your speed, you and your penguin will get a pretty good ride. Obstacles and snacks await those who can manage their speed and slide into all those awesome fish dinners while jumping the seal.
The Video Game Critic (Dec 02, 2003)
Antarctic Adventure is mildly amusing for a while, but it's really a one-trick pony. The ten stages are all pretty much the same, except with shorter timers that force you to make faster and faster runs. I think the game would be better if you were racing against other penguins, not just the clock. The one thing I absolutely hate is the cutesy "Skater's Waltz" tune that plays incessantly throughout the game - very annoying. Antarctic Adventure is certainly a good-looking game, but I just didn't find the gameplay particularly appealing.
