Pango is an excellent freeware PC conversion of Pengo, SEGA’s coin-op classic first released in 1982. Pango is the name of your alter ego in the game: a red penguin who must rid the screen of sno-bees by crushing them with ice blocks. To do this, you must maneuver Pengo into a position where a single ice block stands between him and a sno-bee, and then push the ice block into the sno-bee. The ice block will slide across the screen, pushing the sno-bee ahead of it, until colliding with another ice block of the wall. You can also electrocute sno-bees by trapping them along the wall. Bonus points are awarded for finishing a level quickly, and you can also earn points for combos, such as aligning 3 diamond blocks in a row within the playfield or along the wall.

Pango has the same charming quality as the arcade original: an easy-to-learn, hard-to-master game that requires both reflexes and some strategic thinking to do well. If you like Pac-Man or similar classics, Pango is simply a must-have. Highly recommended!
