Rocket Penguin is a mobile side scroller shoot-em-up game with rockets and penguins and bears (oh my!). Polar bears, that is, but more importantly it's about a curious little penguin trying to get to his dream destination, Hawaii! You see, although Pingy (the Penguin) has adapted to cold weather, he has always dreamed about living in the warm waters of Hawaii.
Help him blast his way through Incredi-birds, Hungry-Hungry Sharkys, and arm your penguin with throwing fish, freezing fish and other power ups along the way (yeah, we're still deciding what to give Mr. Pingy the Penguin, as we go).
(Being developed for iPad, iPhone, iTouch, and later on Android devices)
Inspiration / Story:
At first, the game was going to be a simple "jump" and "swim" game where the penguin collected fish along the way. Then we decided to spice things up by giving Mr. Penguin a Rocket Pack and 'throwing fish'. The person who illustrated and animated the Penguin character was Erik Montoya, also known as Sonic-E. My name is Mark Ammay and I added the rocket boosters and developed the mobile game. We also have our awesome Gamer Girl / tester, Maureen Clemente who owns her own Fashion Boutique. We all graduated from the Art Institute of California - San Francisco, and have a passion for 'creating'.
Over to the right-side is our REWARDS we give out for 'pledgers', and we do LOVE giving them out. You can get a reward for as little as $1.00 and we will be forever grateful. The more you want to pledge, the more you GET! For example, pledge $150 or more and get a personalized penguin character illustrated by Sonic-E our Illustrator / Artist, framed and sent to you along with every other GIFT.
NOTE: To all our international backers, please add $10 dollars to rewards of $50 or more to compensate for shipping costs of the t-shirt. Thanks!
