Become the King of the Ice and solve your problems by bumping of your sibling penguins in this king of the hill penguin bumping game.

Players will learn what it is like to walk and slip around like a penguin as well as rely on their guile to outsmart thier opponents. Our experimental bumper and trigger mashing mechanic gives your penguin speed to bump into players in your way in hopes of knocking them out of competition. However mashing the buttons to fast and you will become physically tired and possibly taken advantage of by a more cautious or aggressive opponent.

The control scheme plays off of this years Game Jam theme of "As long as we have each other, we will never run out of problems." Mashing all of the bumper and trigger buttons together creates a great metaphor as well as helps the player put themselves in the body of one of our cute but fat penguins.

Gliding along the slippery ice you have to learn to control your penguin in order to become the King of the ice!
