Ever had the urge to just get a huge slingshot and fire penguins from it? Yes, so have I. That's why I was so interested to try out Crazy Penguin Catapult 2, a game where you get the chance to help these normally flightless birds take to the sky.
The object of Crazy Penguin Catapult 2 is to help the blundering birds rescue their friends from the evil polar bears. Before the start of each level you need to select your army, which you do by firing a catapult up a mountain. You'll need to time each launch perfectly so that each penguin makes it to the top without hitting his head or flying backwards. The more of your 'soldiers' you get across the better chance you'll stand in the main level.
In each level you need to destroy a given number of polar bears. You do this through the use of flying penguins, who are cannoned over the top of the bears. Tap the screen when you want him to dive-bomb and any polar bears the penguin hits on the way down will be eliminated. Of course, it's not quite as straightforward as this, and there are all sorts of traps, ice blocks, buttons and levers to content with that help add some spice to the gameplay.
Crazy Penguin Catapult 2 is nicely presented, and has the excellent cutesy graphics from the first game, along with jolly music and funny sound effects.
I think this is a good game for kids, but hardcore iPhone gamers may find Crazy Penguin Catapult 2 a little too easy, especially in this free version, where you're limited to just five levels. In fact, it only took me 15 minutes to complete the whole thing.
If you're looking for a bit of fun to lighten your journeys to work, then Crazy Penguin Catapult 2 will certainly give you a chuckle.
