Penguin Rescue

Built with Corona SDK

Help!! Your mission is to rescue adorable penguins that have fallen through the ice! They keep getting trapped inside an ice cavern with no way to escape. Use your awesome brain power to solve the word puzzles by throwing snowballs at the icicles attached to the cavern ceiling.

Pull the snowball letter back with your finger, aim it at the icicles, and release!  With each correct letter you’ll see the snowball hit the icicles causing them to fall and break through the ice below. (Yeah!)

Solve the word and all the ice blocks will break!! Your penguin can now reach the water and swim out to safety. The fewer tries you take to complete the word, the more points you earn!! Each round you play helps rescue penguins - so keep playing to build up your score and be a total hero!  Visit the penguin village to see all the silly penguins you’ve rescued! Tap on them to see their individual personalities come to life, move them around and position them where you’d like to within the village. You can use the pinch and zoom motion to resize the penguins and make them larger or smaller.

Don’t forget to stop by the rescue center igloo and check the message photo board to see which penguins you have rescued and what ones are still missing and need your help!

Challenge yourself to beat your top score! And hurry - RESCUE THOSE PENGUINS!!!
