El Pinguino Run is a running game for your Windows Phone 8 devices that places the legendary bounty hunter, El Pinguino, in a position to save Mexico.
Apparently all the avocados are disappearing leaving the world without guacamole, taco, or burritos. El Pinguino must collect avocados and defeat the bad guys in this 2D platformer.
While the story line is a little out there, El Pinguino Run is a fast paced game for your Windows Phone 8 device that will keep you on your toes.
The main menu for El Pinguino Run is simple and straight forward. You have options to jump into the game, access the store where you can purchase bonus items with your taco points, skins and skills upgrades, as well as viewing your gaming stats. The game screen has your score and taco total displayed in the upper left corner and a tally of items collected in the upper right. The stats do blend in a lot with the colorful scenery of the game, making it a little hard to pick up on at a glance.
You control El Pinguino by swiping at the screen. He is constantly running and the swipes allow him to jump over holes, duck to avoid projectiles, and throw maracas to take out the bad guys. You do get a few on-screen warnings to help you avoid danger but if you look away from the screen for just a second, you run the risk of missing a jump, duck or throw that keeps El Pinguino safe from harm.
As you run the course, you'll collect avocados, tacos (that can be used in the store) and other bonus type items. The goal, make it as far as you can by running the streets or rooftops or the city, collecting as much as you can.
Once you get the swipes down to control El Pinguino, game play can be somewhat challenging. Graphics are nice and overall El Pinguino Run isn't too shabby of a running/platform game for your Windows Phone 8 device.
El Pinguino Run is a free, ad-supported game that you can find here in the Windows Phone Store.
