    Given the iPad version, and the clean production of Arctic Escape, it is a very good buy for puzzler fans looking for a challenging iPhone/iPad game combo. Priced at one dollar, it is affordable too. Your time will probably be consumed by these little penguins pretty quickly.

    Aside from that one glaring complaint (which is more of a nitpicky issue, really), Arctic Escape is a well-designed homage to Lemmings and a wonderful value, as it costs $0.99 and works for both the iPhone and iPad. Definitely check it out.

    If you enjoy puzzle games and/or penguins as much as we do, this ought to be right up your alley. At $0.99, Arctic Escape is a fun and challenging 3.5-Dimple title.

    Drawing favorable comparisons to puzzle legendary franchise Lemmings, Arctic Escape is a challenging game that tasks the player with saving adorable penguins from environmental hazards.

    There's a decent amount of content on hand here, but it soon felt like a bit of a chore to get through it all.
