Penguins Arena: Sedna's World is a penguin themed first-person shooter intended for children, developed by Frogames
in December 2008. It's a multiplayer game where players try to knock each other off of an iceberg and into the water. There are four different game modes and each map contains five different temporary weapons or powerups that give the player an advantage. The maps are all very small, thus the rounds are really quick and furious.
The online multiplayer of this game is practically dead and the artificial intelligence is not very good, often the opponent just falls off the cliff by himself or he just won't let go and the round goes on forever. If you want to buy this game, I would recommend you to get some friends to play it with you, if you play alone you probably won't have much fun. Also the game is pretty repetitive due to the similarity of the maps and the game modes, so it might get boring after a few rounds.
Still it's overall a fun game with cute graphics. It's nothing special, but it has a basic and easily understandable gameplay and the powerups enhance the fun. There's even a map editor, which I really like. You can download it here
or download custom maps created by other users here
. Even though the game was released five years ago, the developers recently announced an upcoming update, so let's see what the future holds.
Penguins Arena: Sedna's World is great if you want a short-term fun game to play with friends and nothing too serious. Also it's a nice alternative for children to the many violent first-person shooters. The game is only available in a bundle, which is in my opinion not worth the price if you'll only buy it for this game, but if you can get it on sale it's worth a shot.
