The Penguins of Madagascar is a game developed by THQ and released on Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi on November 2, 2010. It is a spin-off to the animated TV series The Penguins of Madagascar and is unrelated to tie-in games to the 2014 DreamWorks film Penguins of Madagascar.

Critical reception[edit]

Common Sense Media gave the game 4 stars out of 5, writing "The strategic puzzle-solving format is a fantastic way to bring The Penguins of Madagascar into the video game world. It was a pleasantly unexpected choice on the part of the developers, and such a better one than if they'd simply given us a game about penguins waddling along and smacking enemies. Kids will really have to put on their thinking caps for these fun, brain-teasing levels -- but remembering that the audience here will be younger kids, the developers didn't go crazy with any way-too-difficult challenges. They're all fun, but do-able -- which is great. And the invention-creating mini-games break things up nicely (although you will have to put together the same darn bridge way too many times). Along the way, you can collect snow cones that can be used to purchase mini-games, which also provides a nice break from the strategic planning."[1] Kidsworld gave it 4/5 stars, writing " This is a great game that can be played for short intervals of time and then picked up at a later date".[2]
