I was going to start this review with the Lumberjack Song lyrics from Monty Python, but I don’t think it’s actually appropriate for what is essentially a family game 😉 This is a dexterity game where you have to try chopping the bark off of the trees without actually knocking off the trunk.
Have you ever fancied yourself as a treasure hunter? Dashing through unknown places in search of great treasure? Avoiding traps and fearsome opponents? It’s a nice fantasy and a good premise for a game, but the treasure in Pingo Pingo is protected by a clan of penguins. Spear wielding, Polar bear riding penguins. Oh, and there’s traps too, and space penguins and other treasure hunters looking to steal your treasure!
There once was a land filled with adventure. Where aspiring heroes could perform great deeds of valour and earn their just rewards. Over time they drove off the monsters and the land became peaceful.
So they packed up and left.
