The penguins have escaped!

About This Cartridge

The Penguins in the Zoo are up to no good! It's up to you to help the Zookeeper figure out what's wrong and set things right.

This is an open source cartridge. We have included a text file in the "download source" section to help builders and players become more familiar with this cartridge. 

Starting Location

Go to the Penguin Pool at the Woodland Park Zoo to begin this cartridge.

Tried this on my new Nexus 7 using the WhereYouGo app. It worked! The compass was wrong, but distance from goal worked. I'd use a paper zoo map to get around.

I'm a member at this zoo, so didn't mind putting animal experience second (this time!). I'd suggest getting a membership and playing w/ the kids on a subsequent visit! It's definitely meant for them. Had fun though!

The new penguin exhibit is in the same location, so no problem there. Early questions are multiple choice with retries; was able to find the answers for later specific questions on the exhibits at those locations. Guessed a couple of times.

WhereYouGo quirks: It doesn't give you an unlock code at the end or compatible uploadable game file. (Also, keep checking your inventory to see what's around, and tap on the dropdown menus to get the options).

Played it on an emulator as Seattle is over a thousand miles away from me! Nicely put-together cartridge!

I wanted to try and play this one but it sounds like the penquins have been moved, has it been upgraded since the move??

Had a great time while playing this at the zoo today. As others have mentioned, the Penguins really have escaped! It looks like they are going to have a great new home to return to in 2009. There were a few places that when the cartridge told me I had arrived somewhere, that I was really a little ways away from where I needed to be to find answers. After consulting the zoo map I found everywhere that I needed to be.

I must have done something wrong though, because I finished the cartridge, but didn't get an unlock code and when I tried to upload my saved game, it said that I hadn't completed it yet. I have a zoo membership, so next time I am there, I will head back to the Penguins (or where they should be) and see if I can get the code.
