Penguins, pills and big guns!

Mad scientist Dr. Glowenko is planning to take over the world with an army of bio-engineered cybernetic penguins. One of the penguins, codenamed Pablo, doesn't like the idea and escapes, only to find himself fighting against the whole clone penguin army, led by Pedro, another cyber-penguin. The fate of the world is in Pablo's flippers.

TAGAP is a 2-D platformer shoot-em-up, but it plays more like a first-person-shooter. TAGAP is also about pills. There are different pills that are rewarded for in-game achievements, like hi-scores and killing spree combos. The drugs have different effects and side effects. As a result gameplay keeps switching from trippy slow-motion to fast-forward – and back.
