    Interesting game, one issue I initially faced was the blocks. I though you were supposed to jump over them rather than "wrap around the world". Not sure how to sort that, making them full height (or at least taller) would solve that issue but would make falling onto them different

    Thanks Richtea.
    You can either jump over the blocks, or wrap around them. You can buy the ability to jump in the upgrade store. Perhaps it isn't clear enough that the store is available? What do you think?
    Thanks for the feedback.

    Ah, I did see the store but it didn't occure to me that jump would be in there, in that case I think leave it as it is: i did figure out the "wrap around the world" relatively quickly

    The reason for putting the jump ability in the shop was to teach the user that they can jump, without having a tutorial. Still not sure if it was a good idea or not!

    Super Penguin is now available in the Amazon App Store. Should also work on Kindles, but I don't currently have one to test it on.

    Updated to v1.1.0:

    - Added "About" page.
    - Added hint pop ups detailing how to visit the shop & how to claim objective rewards
    - Hopefully fixed half-blackout-screen bug.
    - Removed Coin Value shop item, it was OP!
    - Altered some shop prices & icons.

    Working on the next update for Super Penguin!

    I want to add new levels; as well as a new shop for each level.
    I'm thinking that for each level, you start new as a normal penguin and have to upgrade again - but the upgrades will be different for each level.

    A few level ideas:
    - Castle level (unlocks when you reach 2000m in the 1st level)
    - Halloween level (unlocked for a few weeks during halloween)
    - Space(?) level (unlocks when you beat the boss in the Castle level)
    - Christmas level (unlocked for a few weeks during christmas)

    What do you guys think?
    Not going to add all the levels at once, I'll add each one with each new update. Starting with the Castle level within the next week (hopefully)

    Thanks,
    Will

    I install it. I really love it. I have one question. What engine you use to write this game? (I am interesting because I am developer too. I start to use Unity 3d).

    Thanks a lot, Rampkin. I used Game Maker Studio. It's fairly expensive ($800 for full version), but you can try it for free.

    Hey all, Super Penguin was recently updated to v1.2.5!
    The new update adds 2 new episodes, each with their own style, enemies, obstacles, upgrades and more!
    There's also a new control scheme to try out, and more!

    Also, here's a new trailer showcasing one of the new episodes, the Castle:


    The 2nd new episode is a Halloween themed episode which is unlocked by playing the game during October or November, so try it soon to permanently unlock it!

    Thank you, good night, and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

    Did you use LibGDX or any other cross platform software to develop the game?

    I used GM:Studio for this project. It's cross-platform if you buy the additional modules. & created the graphics using the built-in sprite editor.

    Hi all,

    We now have a new trailer for Super Penguin! (check the first post to watch) this time using Adobe After Effects so it's much more... premium.

    v1.3 will be live later today
    This version adds 1 new episode (unlocked by playing any time during December) with new enemies, improved graphics on all episodes, a new shop with additional powerups & upgrades, and a Christmas hat!

    Thanks,
    Will
