In this puzzle and action game, the player takes control of two penguins, Gurin and Malon. Two adorable creatures who were in perfect love until the day when a disease prevented them from moving in the same direction. To cure our two friends, it is necessary to complete and win the 49 levels of the game.
The goal of each level is to reunite the two penguins in front of the marshmallow heart at the top of the screen. The player controls both penguins at the same time, but they do not move in the same direction. If one is directed to the right, the other goes to the left and vice versa!
Each level of the game offers a different challenge, and the corridors to navigate are obstructed by spider webs, some of which are still lurking around. It is important to be wise and precise in movements, while also controlling the dangers that may come towards one or the other of the two characters. If one of them gets caught in a web, the other can come to the rescue, but be mindful of the ticking clock!
Avoiding spiders and other enemies to collect the 49 marshmallow hearts necessary to win within the given time limit will not be an easy quest. Luckily, to assist the player, some bonuses and easter egg are scattered throughout the game.
With each game, a handmade doll representing one of our two heroes
