Pingu is a popular cartoon penguin that was on television for many years. There was also a 2D Pingu game that behaved lot like the Lemmings game.
Today, Minecraft players can enjoy Pingus in their in-game worlds. The Pingus Mod for Minecraft adds Pingus to the game. Pingus come in a number of different types and varieties and have special abilities.
The types of Pingus included in this mod are:
Pingus don’t spawn in the wilds of Minecraft. Instead, players use Pingus kind of like they would use any other item. Once you ‘use’ a Pingu, it will leave your hand and travel in a straight line along the direction you’re currently facing.
While traveling to its destination, the Pingu will perform whatever special task it has been assigned. Pingus will die, unfortunately, when exposed to lava, water, fire, or falling damage of more than 5 blocks.
Fans of the original 2D Pingu game will appreciate the fact that all of that game’s original animations have been added to the game through this mod. Each type of Pingu has a different animation.
Before using a Pingu, you’ll need to craft a regular Pingu and then right click on that Pingu to give it a special ability. Those special abilities include:
-The Basher Pingu will swing its arms and destroy any blocks in front of it until reaching an unbreakable block or bashing through 250 blocks. To create a Basher Pingu, give a regular Pingu a golden apple.
-The Bomber Pingu will run very fast away from the player when used. After 5 seconds, the Bomber Pingu will briefly take flight and flap its wings before exploding violently. To create a Bomber Pingu, give a regular Pingu TNT.
-The Bridger Pingu will make a staircase for you. The Pingu places 16 stairs in a row before turning back into a regular Pingu. To make a Bridger Pingu, give a regular Pingu 8 stairs of any kind.
-The Digger Pingu will dig a deep hole when given a drill. It will not stop digging that hole until it reaches an unbreakable block.
-The Miner Pingu will mine diagonally downwards until it reaches an unbreakable block. The diagonal downwards slope is gentle enough to form a staircase for players. To craft a Miner Pingu, give a regular Pingu an iron pickaxe.
-The Climber Pingu will build a 16 block ladder up any vertical surface. It will stop if it reaches an overhanging block or when it has used up 16 ladders. To create a Climber Pingu, give a regular Pingu 8 ladders.
The Pingus Mod is about more than just adding cute little animals to your game. It adds minions that perform very useful functions. Whether you’re trying to dig a deep hole or just want to automatically transform parts of your environment, the Pingus Mod is worth a shot.
