Pengo is a little penguin whose job it is to clear a series of two-dimensional icefields of pesky Sno-Bees. To do this he must kick ice blocks into the Sno-Bees, effectively squashing them deader than an ant at a Raid-sellers convention. Flashing ice blocks contain Sno-Bee eggs. If Pengo can get his grubby little flippers on these babies (by crushing the blocks) before they hatch, he will get extra points.
Another method of exterminating the dreaded Sno-Bees is to freeze and run over them. When Pengo kicks a wall that a Sno-Bee is traveling beside, it instantly freezes the Sno-Bee, making it vulnerable to Pengo's mighty penguin feet.
Pengo can earn bonus points by lining up three diamond blocks and by clearing the maze/playfield of Sno-Bees as quickly as possible. The maze is constantly changing as ice blocks are its only inner walls, and Pengo can push them around the screen. Also, Pengo can crush ice blocks that are trapped. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
