Hey kids, remember those crane machines at locations such as fairs, arcades and amusement parks? Oh yeah, they would drain your pocket money like there’s no tomorrow. Ever imagined what it would be like to be able to unlimitedly try your hand at catching as many cute stuffed animals as you desire? Well, in that case, developer _NetNomad has good news for you, as he issued Penguin Catcher, which pretty much recreates the thrill and feel of said machines.

In line with the traditional penguin-obsession of MSX fans and developers alike, again it’s exactly this type of bird that will claim its place in the spotlights. However, in this case, they’re much like teddy bears. Use your reflexes to reel in as many of those cute stuffed penguins as you can. How we can ever fit all of those in our hobby chamber or even bunk? That’s an issue to take care of, later.

If your preferred set-up has support for FM-PAC or a compatible sound chip aboard, you’ll be treated to some neat music as icing on the cake, by hand of the game’s author himself.
