Fun game! I included it in my Game Maker Toolkit’s Game Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

I love:
- The stiffness of walking around compared to sliding justified by the fact we play a penguin
- The graphics are simple but effective and coherent
- Protecting baby penguins

I would have love if :
- Movements were not constrained on 8 axes. The game would feel better to play if it was possible to rotate freely the penguin.
- The slide could be slightly controlled: possibility to aim a bit during the slide making an arc rather than a straight line
