Although Yume Penguin Monogatari is not for everyone (its 'cuteness factor' may scare away the hardcore gamer), it is an excellent action/platform game and a hidden gem... unfortunately the game is quite rare to find these days, especially complete and in good condition.
Or maybe I'm off the mark completely. As the one and only Flying Omelette pointed out to me recently, "It seems to me that the story is more trying to make a joke out of an observation of human behavior (even those these are cartoon penguins) rather than preach a moral." It could be... it very well could be. In fact, that's probably exactly what it is. ~shrug~ Regardless, it's not about the moral. It's about the game. Yume Penguin Monogatari is a fun, yet easy, sidescroller, and definitely one of the better Famicom games Konami created. It's worth tracking down if you're looking for a relatively obscure import to add to your collection - hell, it's worth tracking down just so you can expose people to the sheer weirdness of the story (those that haven't seen it before usually end up just shaking their heads in bewilderment). If you can't do that, then you can always dig up the ROM somewhere online and check it out.
