This is an arcade game which was originally published by ABC Elektronic and Gigasoft but has now been re-released by RWAP Software. The game is also freely available as part of the QL-SD demo.

In this colourful game, you control a small Penguin (Pengi) as he tries to survive the antarctic climate, trapped inside a maze of ice blocks, surrounded by an electric fence. Faced with deadly snobees all around, the only way to survive is by pushing ice blocks onto the snobees and squashing them, before they touch Pengi. You can also collect diamonds to gain additional points and stun the snobees by hitting them with the blue ice walls.

Based on the Sega Arcade game, Pengo, similar versions were released by Visions Software for the BBC Micro and Acorn Electron.

The game is written entirely in 68000 machine code.
