Pingu and Friends is an educational game, developed by Workhouse and published by BBC Multimedia, which was released in Europe in 1999 and was released in North America by Infogrames. It was narrated by Felicity Kendal.
Play and learn with Pingu and his friends in this fun and simple to use CD-ROM. There are ten great activities for your child to enjoy which will also enhance their language, literacy, maths and navigational skills.
The emphasis is on games outside Pingu's igloo - Save Pinga who is lost in a snow cave, have a go at bowling in Snowbowl Alley or help Pingu in his Snowball battle with Robby, Pingo and Pink. Test your concentration, memory and recognition skills with Pingu Pairs, can you match up Pingu and his friends as they pop up and down in the snow holes?
Inside Pingu's igloo there are 4 games, each focusing on a different educational subject. Enhance language & literacy skills in Tell Me a Story. Simple science in the Flying Pancakes game. Early geography in Parcel Fun. Maths with Count the Cakes.
Help Pingu bring his canvas to life creating pictures with a variety of templates, stamps and creative tools or print out and complete the dot-to-dot puzzles, or you may want to help the South Pole pals with a spot of Ice Dancing. Whatever you choose there is plenty of mischief and fun to be had with Pingu and his friends
- This is the only time when Robby can turn into a ball.
