Doki Doki Penguin Land is the first title in the Penguin Land series. Originally released in 1985 for the SG-1000 and MSX, it was also among the few games to receive an arcade port running on hardware closely based on the SG-1000. The first game in the series established most of the gameplay conventions of the series.
In the game, you must control a penguin trying to get his (her?) egg down to the bottom of the level, while tunneling through ice to get there. Special egg and penguin blocks may make things easier, while polar bears and falling rocks will almost certainly slow you down.
The game remains the most widely ported, and has been compiled on the Sega Saturn, various cell phones, and a loose adaptation on the Game Boy by Pony Canyon.
This version of Doki Doki Penguin Land was designed for the Sega SG-1000, which was first 8-bit Sega video game console manufactured
in the years 1983 - 1985. It was launched on the same day as much more successful NES console and with exceptions, it was sold only in Japan.
The unit price of SG-1000 was 15,000 yen, the same price as for NES. Console was not very successful and after 2 years was withdrawn from the market.
