Penguin Adventure review

Topic: Software

Some people are just funny to listen to, and for them and us, YouTube is a golden invention. Like, who could ever forget Deceased Crab? WeirdVideoGames is quite comparable to the former, taking games literary and wondering why things are what they are supposed to be. After having made a review of Konami's Antarctic Adventure earlier this year, he uploaded a review of its sequel Penguin Adventure recently. Again, full of amazement about fish being currency for gambling, about floating into space at multiple mach speed. You get the idea; a video worthy of your consideration!

Well, Deceased Crab makes me want to throw an ashtray through the screen and chew on my desk, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with this other guy. Smile He's really well informed and thorough, actually. Even got the frequency right.
Those drawings are great, too!!

I've known the game for ages, but I never knew about the shortcuts in the large gaps =P

It's most certainly not. I can't even begin to point out all the differences between those two.
Considered that both deal with the exact same game, they are in fact remarkably unsimilar.

@vampier: Yes it's a very old game.

Both are reviews of the same game, hence sure there will be coincidences. But the styles, impressions and focus are completely different. JohnHassink focus on the hilarious absurd situations of the game that usually pass unquestioned, while Saqrstudio focus on the qualities of the game. IOTW, completely different reviews. Smile
