Personal review
You control a cute penguin and have to reach the next base in a certain amount of time. While racing above the snowy antarctic landscape you have to avoid cracks in the ice, sea lions and other creatures. The gameplay resembles that of standard racing games, but it is a nice change to control a penguin and not a car. And this penguin subsequently became some kind of Konami's mascot in the 80's with him appearing in many more Konami games.

Description
The player takes the role of an Antarctic penguin, racing to disparate research stations owned by different countries in Antarctica. The gameplay is similar to Sega's Turbo, but plays at a much slower pace, and features platform game elements. The penguin, later named Penta, must reach the next station before time runs out while avoiding sea lions and breaks in the ice. Throughout the levels, fish jump out of ice holes and can be caught for bonus points. The game, like many early video games, has no ending – when the player reaches the last station, the game starts from the first level again, but with increased difficulty.
