Homepage: Pingus

License: GPL

Latest Version: 0.6.0

Screenshots: Screenshot 1 # Screenshot 2 # Screenshot 3 # Screenshot 4 # Screenshot 5 # Screenshot 6.

Platform: Linux.

Hardware Requirement: -

Additional System Requirements: Hermes # ClanLib.

Singleplayer: yes

Multiplayer: no

Demo: N/A

Description: Pingus is a clone of the popular Lemmings game. The concept of Pingus is simple: save as many Tux-like pingus as possible. You'll have to make the pingus climb, dig, parachute, and block toward the exit in your quest for pingu salvation. Pingus has tons of worlds with jungle, space, and Christmas themes, detailed backdrops, and tons of animated cuteness. While Pingus is based on the idea of Lemmingstm, it has included some other ideas, which weren't presented in the original Lemmingstm, like the worldmap or secret levels, which might be familiar from games the Super Mario World and other Nintendo games. We have also a few new actions, like the jumper which weren't presented in the original game

Notes: I was able to install from for the MCC "Add software" but I do have a few "non-official" sources like plf, so I'm not sure if it's part of the official urpmi repositories. Try it that way first if you're uncomfortable installing from source

Reviews: graphically pleasing. If you like Lemmings you should like Pingus.
