Percy Penguin in The Present Palaver
Concept & Code by John Davies
written using The Amazing AGDx
Oh dear, Santa has come a cropper in some unusually awful Christmas Eve weather and managed to tip a bunch of children's presents out of his sleigh and into the eerie icicle forest far below.
Percy, being the perfect penguin he is, has volunteered to retrieve the presents before the Christmas Day deadline as Santa's elves have clocked off for the night.
He may not be able to fly but his jumping skills are second to none, and he'll need them to make his way through the freezing cold treachorous forest, recover every single present dropped and return back to Santa's workshop before time runs out.
Do you have what it takes to guide Percy on his journey and save Christmas in less than an hour?
Better get your skates on!!
Percy Penguin in The Present Palaver is a platform game for the ZX Spectrum in the same vein as Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy.
You must traverse through 26 screens where you'll encounter all manner of creatures to avoid and glowing Christmas gifts to collect. All 50 presents must be returned back to Santa's workshop in the final hour before Christmas Day.
