Ever wanted to be a penguin and do the greatest robbery of all times while you are at it? Let us introduce you to The Greatest Penguin Heist of All Time. Penguin Heist is a collection of different heist locations with their own distinct flair. It is not hard to guess that all plot lines are based on a different heist. One heist might involve you stealing fish boats; another may see you stealing important artifacts and another one could require you to kidnap a renowned chef. The penguins, I mean YOU, are responsible for deciding how to complete the heist. Be loud and chaotic or keep it on the low, there is no right way of doing things... you choose.
Penguin Heist was inspired by old-school stealth games and heist game, but also modern physics platformers. The engine is modern and supports multiplayer. You choose your mission, loadout, then you go on your quest to find and steal anything that isn't yours. Your tools, weapons, and intelligence will allow you to steal, infiltrate, and exfiltrate the best possible. Explore the maps and complete quests to unlock new weapons, items and more. You can also get sickest penguin drips if you spend your hard-earned cash in the clothing store.
Penguin Heist offers a challenge no matter your level of expertise. Even if you don't have the skills, you can still have fun entertaining your friends with baguettes and bananas.
You will unlock new weapons and tools as you play the game. These include normal guns, drones, explosives and food. Each item comes with a unique feature that can be used for heists. A pair of penguins guarding the door. You can use dynamite or a mini-gun to blast them into oblivion.
A penguin can master any weapon and be skilled in heisting, but what penguin is complete without style? Personalize the skin, hair, and clothing of your penguin.
I loved how they were cartoonish and cute, which fit the absurd vibes of the game perfectly. It reminded me a lot of Human Fall Flat or Untitled Goose Game. The graphics weren't perfect, but they were good enough to work for the game. They were just enough to give me a good idea of what was going on and make the game enjoyable.
What Could Be Better?
This game is not perfect. Even with all of the content, the game is very basic on a superficial level. Many of the menus and UI elements are very lacking. At times, it is difficult and confusing to control your own penguin. This is especially true when you have to fight other penguins or pick up objects. The instructions on how to control your penguin are not always clear, and more in-game tutorials can be added.
On the bright-side, all these issues can be overlooked because this is not a game you would play for its top-of-the-class optimization and UI design. The Greatest Penguin Heist of All Time lets you have an absurd and fun adventure with your friends, as penguins, and that’s about it. If you have more polished expectations, you may be disappointed.
Is The Greatest Penguin Heist of All Time Worth Playing?
It's overall cute and charming and I hope it continues to flourish. I appreciate that there is more to the game than one level, and that you have cosmetic items for your penguin. I believe that it might help if the penguin moves more smoothly. Also, a tutorial level would help the players to better understand the game's mechanics and controls.
