Fun game with a simple concept.
The game style is pretty cute (love the little pingu) =3
Sometimes, narrow area (1 tile) can be hard to cross or to loot the curry on it.
Good job for your entry !

The objective is easy to understand and challenging! The art, music and gameplay work very well, Well Done!

That was a lovely little game!

Did take me a while to realise they weren't actually going to come onto the ice and to pelt them at the sides, but got through a dozen levels once I figured it out.

This is the first game to which I gave full marks! :-D

Very fun and clear gameplay with nice music and animations.

Nice little game, a simple idea very well implemented :)  

As mentioned below, there are some bugs and the hit indicator would help. Moving around the delt clunky, I believe you used different hitboxes for each sprite of the penguin, was that it?  

I got to level 15 and enjoyed all the ride. I'll be sure to rate you on LD42 too!

There are some minor bugs here and there, like deleting a red hockey-thingy while throwing another oone over it, but besides those, it was a really relaxing and chill game. (pun intended) After 13 levels killing 2 or 3 walruses with 1 throw is really satisfying, though a sound effect would be really good to indicate wether you hit them or not.

I managed to get to level 11! Cute little game. It's pretty satisfying to get two or more walruses with one curry.

Fun little game, although it does repeat itself very quickly. I think I struggled a bit more with the sliding physics when I wanted to go through a narrow passage, but otherwise good job.

Simple concept but a reasonable one; collect bullets and throw them at invading walruses before they eat all your ice. The bullets are actually curry, rather weirdly — do penguins particularly like curry? do walruses particularly not like it? — but the main problem here is that the walruses appear and then disappear waaaaaay too quickly. Either you need the reflexes of a particularly quick-moving cobra to play this, or I’m doing something wrong, because I hardly ever managed to get into position and actually hit one of the attackers before they vanished again, which puts the game too far into the “frustrating rather than fun” category. Nice idea, though; it’s quite reminiscent of the sorts of 8-bit games you actually got in the 80s.
