    There are actually a bunch of versions of this game out there-- in one, there are minefields, and when the penguin lands on one, what's left of him goes a long, long way...

    I also have one on the PC at work, that sends the penguin ridiculously long distances... a good whack can send him over 4 miles (my personal best is closing in on 22,000 feet)... it's the kind of game where I whack him, and go away for 10-15 minutes, do a little work... then I go back and whack him again... I call the penguin "Skippy", and I get a kick out of the little "wheeee" when you smack him...

    I'll get the URL at work later tonight and post it for y'all...

    The secret to getting max distance is to wait until he's just about to smack the ice, catch him on the top side with lots of overspin... this drives him straight into the ice, then he rebounds like what old time baseball players call a Baltimore chop... if you get under him too much, he tends to plug in the ice without bouncing...
