Pretty cool game with very cute graphics. The snow is a nice touch.

The only problem I had was with the music. It seemed to slow down and speed up seemingly randomly, and sometimes disappear when a sound effect was played.

Fresh and very nice !

A little bit too easy,
maybe add a timer (or counter of actions) ?

Nice relaxing puzzle game but got stuck on level 7 just when the video stopped :( I see that both Fire1 + Fire2 trigger game pause - was that intentional? Plus the music continues to play on Pause which may be nice to pause the music there also...

Hi, thanks for all comments.

The NES version actually has a timer. We didnt implement it in SMS port because there was no really good position to place it on the screen. Also, the port was made very quickly to make it in the compo deadline.

Yes.

New version is available.
Fixes and additions:
Fixed audio SFX problems(Thanks to Calindro!)
Pressing against a wall no longer starts turning animation
Audio is now compressed with PSGTool, saving some ROM space
Moved files around allowing for ROM size decrese 64kb->48kb
Snow no longer spawns above the HUD
Snow is now printed in front of the player, not behind.
Added two SFX: teleporter and hitting a wall.
Added score rise after collecting a clover.
Added two more stages, use passcode 1781 to jump right to them.

Congrats for this very beautiful game!

I'm really impressed but the graphics quality, it looks like a 16-bits Amiga game! The game is fun to play too.Simple to pick up, it starts easy, then became challenging! (at least for me!)

Well done!

this game is very nice and fun - also I love penguins a lot so this is a plus :D

I finished it and I wonder why there was no way to leave the final screen. Is this a bug or is it intentional? Just wait for a button press and restart the ROM, simply by jumping at $0000
