It's rare to see games aimed at the younger set these days.

Crave Entertainment, a leading distributor and specialty publisher of console videogames, has released Defendin' De Penguin(tm), the first real time strategy game designed primarily for kids twelve and under, for the popular Wii(tm) and Nintendo DS(tm) systems. Help Little Blue fend off hungry creatures eager to steal Penguin Town's fish supply. Using the perfect combination of tower utilization, defensive placement, timing and strategy, Little Blue will save the day.

Defendin' De Penguin was named "Best E3 Wii Game Runner-Up" by 1UP Network. IGN commented, "For the audience it's intended for-the young gamer who's never played any strategic game at all before-this could be a great first step into the concepts of the genre." GameZone said, "As the truly first real-time strategy game that is geared towards kids 12 and under, Defendin' De Penguin will have kids wanting to save the little fur ball from danger."

Players use wits and strategy to protect Penguin Town by placing defensive towers to thwart hungry invaders who are stealing the fish supply. Choose from eight different tower types that release an array of environmental ammunition, such as snowballs, ice cubes, icicles and frost to deter woolly mammoths, snow men, seals, snapping turtles and more. Direct Little Blue to catch more fish and retrieve special power-ups so you can upgrade towers to increase attack range and strength as your enemies expand in size, strength and smarts.

Defendin' De Penguin is available now for Wii and Nintendo DS for a suggested retail price of $29.99.
