The super-small indie game developer duo Penguin DT is proud to announce that TAGAP 2, the sequel to the cult-hit TAGAP: The Apocalyptic Game About Penguins released back in 2007, goes live on July 31st 2011. Like the first game, TAGAP 2 will also be honest-to-Tux freeware; no ads, microtransactions or subscriptions – just download, play and share! The game is for the designed for Windows XP, Vista and 7, while it's proven to run smoothly on Mac with Wineskin.
Following the events of the first game our newly befriended heroes Pablo and Pedro stumble on a secret combat penguin experiment in a forgotten warehouse, unleashing General Primo, the most epic cyber-penguin ever! What results is an awesome 2D-platformer-shoot-em-up adventure where Pablo and Pedro fight their way through endless armies of zombie penguins, trying to stop the what-ever-insane-plan General Primo has cooked up during his artificial sleep. If they fail, it's the Penguin Apocalypse!
Luckily Pablo isn't alone this time as Pedro joins the fray, either side by side in brand new split-screen co-op campaign, or by providing air support with his trusty attack helicopter in single player.
Everything that made the first TAGAP a success has been amped up to eleven in TAGAP 2, from gameplay and graphics to the soundtrack and split-screen co-op play. What results is one of the most grandiose original 2D shooters ever to be released as freeware from the Day One.
