Waddle your way through challenging puzzles in The Penguins of Madagascar for the Nintendo DS. Read the review here!

Everyone’s favorite penguins – Private, Skipper, Kowalski and Rico – are back in The Penguins of Madagascar for the Nintendo DS. The penguins need help with three different challenges: throwing King Julien a birthday party, finding the missing Morti and getting rid of all the snow in the zoo! Each completed puzzle brings the player closer to completing their mission.

Team Penguin

Players can compete using Team Penguin or using each penguin separately. Depending on the level, players will need to alternate between penguins in order to complete certain tasks. For example, Private climbs, Skipper leads a group walk, Kowaski builds bridges and Rico blows things up. Teamwork is key in each of the challenges, and the player will need to determine the most strategic way to complete the level. For the most part the levels all include a variety of actions that need to be completed by each penguin.

Rewards

In addition to regular gameplay, there is a store run by King Julien where the penguins can purchase decorations, mini games and bonus levels. In order to buy something from King Julien players need to collect snow cones that are spread throughout each level.

If you are a fan of Private, Skipper, Kowalski and Rico you will love this game! The levels start off quite basic but increase quickly in difficulty. The player needs to think strategically in order to progress throughout the game. This is a great game that can be played for short intervals of time and then picked up at a later date.

Oh trust me, I know a pc is better. But when a console is slower then a console that is technically weaker. That is just, bad.

The internet browser on the PS4 is BAD not as bad as internet explorer 6 but still pretty bad. I will start with the little things., It is slower then the Wii U's browser (Wii U is an inferior console in terms of processing power.) Scrolling on the PS4 has been dumped down. While the PS3's browser wasn't as good. At least it could scroll smoothly. When you get too much cache on your browser, the browser will load slower, and when you type it takes for ever for the PS4 to register the letter that you have selected.
