Hamster has gone a little obscure with its latest Arcade Archive release, dipping into its big bag of oddities and pulling out UPL's old-school title Penguin-Kun Wars (also known simply as Penguin Wars) available to download now on Nintendo Switch.
Released in arcades back in 1985, before seeing ports and variants on NES, Game Boy, and various home computers, Penguin-Kun Wars isn't quite the arctic apocalypse you might expect. More a skill-based/sports title, players choose one of five animals, then battle it out against the others in a head-to-head ball-rolling contest. The video below, from YouTuber ShiryuGL, should give you a better idea of the action.
