If you haven't seen your colleagues playing this game yet, this is your change. The game made by Laget is a simple Flash game where you are a Yeti. Aim of this game is to hit the penguin that jumps from a rock above you as hard as possible. The further your penguin flies or glides the more points you get. Good luck!

For one thing, I don't understand why this was posted, whether or not as being related.

Furthermore, I don't think it's smart posting about it, with animal wellfare protection and anything.

I had a great laugh playing the game. Ok, it's not MSX and barely related, but maybe someone would like to port this to MSX? Tongue

It's basically the same as Konami Hyper Sports' Hammer Throw event...

Besides, there's not even blood or anything. That's GOTTA be a rubber penguin...

The game was altered, before (last week) it was much more 'realistic'. Quite lame if you ask me...

Anyway... So anything involving a penguin is on-topic here? Just coz MRC's mascotte is a penguin? I'd call it MRC-related in stead of MSX-related then!

Hehe... the game was modified by some russian user of Live Journal
(look at the message on the stone: "lj-user parphenos was here")

In the original game you cannot get score bigger than 323.5, if I'm not mistaken.

This game was posted here for fun. Just as we posted about penguin mints and MSX the oyster disease. How this is related: well, there´s this penguin starring in the game, and it´s fun. Probably a bridge to far, but who cares? Just have pfun.

No, 323.4m was the maximum of the original, iirc. In any case, that one was much prettier (no ugly fullscreen shit either), and more realistic. To some extent Smile.

Anyways, Guyver, I definately don't think it's a rubber penguin. It probably just has a really strong skin with a bit of fat under it, or something. After all, you can see the penguin getting ready to jump and actually jumping, which a rubber puppet wouldn't be able to. To be sure about the blood thing I guess we'd have to try with a real penguin. This by the way also invalidates the suggestion that the penguin was pushed over the edge against his will - if that were so, I don't see why it would willingly get ready to jump. In the contrary, he would probably be struggling or something

Funny, it turns out that this whole game was made as a parody with the penguin being the brand mascotte of the Danish candy maker Pingvin. (www.pingvin.com).
