Penguin Slice 2 is a puzzle game where you have to save little piglets from evil penguins by slicing the wood and rock structures where both are seated. It is a physics based puzzle game, where you see the principles of mechanical construction in play directly as you play the game.
When a level starts, you are presented with an arena or area with a number of piglets and penguins sitting on a structure made out of wood, rock and ice. Your goal is to slice the walls, roofs and foundations of these structures, and make them tumble down, in a way so that the penguins are destroyed without harming the little piglets. The structures are rudimentary dwellings, made without the use of any cement of any kind, so that a single slice may destroy the whole structure.
The challenge of the game is to slice the structure at the right point, which can only be found by following the principle of cause and effect as applied to the building blocks of that structure. In the tougher levels, you will have to do trial and error to find the right point, and it is on these levels that you will learn the most.
The game has two new worlds, world four and world five, with the Penguin Slice part 1 containing the first three worlds. Each world has a number of increasingly difficult levels, with the first level containing two penguins and single piglet housed in two structures of 2 to 4 blocks each.
Once you slice a wooden or other block, the structure comes down very slowly, so you can follow the exact steps that make it come down. This makes you learn the exact steps happening, so if you fail the first time, you can know where you went wrong. This also makes it a more suspenseful game; to see a well-built structure come tumbling down like that, and not knowing whether it will hurt the piggy or not is quite suspenseful. The music also accentuates this feeling of suspense since it is slow yet haunting.
Overall, Penguin Slice 2 is a very interesting puzzle game, that keeps your interest without being too fast-paced.
