The eccentric and industrious Penguins of Madagascar must work together to solve adventuresome platform puzzles and foil the diabolical plots of the villainous dolphin, Dr. Blowhole. Skipper, Kowalski, Private, and Rico flip switches, traverse gaps, and make their way past traps set by the dastardly dolphin, designed to prove deadly to unsuspecting pen-gu-ins who don't work together.
As in the Nickelodeon's movie-inspired animated TV series, each penguin character has a specialty, and players must figure out the best way to use their abilities together, in order to overcome obstacles and proceed through each level. Players may have the penguins climb on top of one another's shoulders to reach high places, or control each penguin individually, to position the team for complex puzzle-solving actions.
The game plays out through 12 levels in three episodes, set in, around, and under the zoo. King Julien, Marlene, and other series regulars appear along the way, to help (or hinder) Team Penguin's progress. A number of character-driven mini-games are available, away from the main adventure, including "Julien's Dance Party" and "Mort Bowling." The game features voice acting by the TV cast, with Tom McGrath, Danny Jacobs, and Neil Patrick Harris as Dr. Blowhole. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
