Is it any good?
AWESOME PENGUIN looks cute and has super-simple gameplay that just about anybody of any age can handle, but that's about all it has going for it. You flick penguins into a bunch of disc-shaped candies and watch them all bounce around; points are scored each time two discs bump. And that's it. You get five penguins per game, and it's possible that you'll grow bored with the game before you even reach your fifth penguin. The app may be best enjoyed by young kids who just like to watch the commotion.
