Yeti and Penguin are back! For the first time, the ill-assorted couple is taking off on the iPhone. After being smashed around for years, the Penguin finally gets to fly!
Tap on the screen to hit Pengu with the baseball bat. Use the iPhone's motion sensor to maneuver him through 27 stages of all new level gameplay. Follow a given flight path to collect all the bonus items in each level and chase the daily and global records!
On top there's the classic mode where your only goal is to glide further than any Penguin has done before. That's 2 game modes, 9 levels of difficulty and 27 stages!
Of course, there's one thing you should know: After 5 years, the web-version is still played by 100,000 gamers on any given day. With its tons of new features, the brand new iPhone version is setting out to become the most addictive iPhone gaming experience yet.
You have been warned!

Great Graphics and Addictive Gameplay!
This game's overall presentation is pretty fantastic. The graphics look great for an ipod touch/iphone game, especially if you pay close attention. There are quite a few small details like the shine on the ice or detail on the penguin/yeti that really in the end add to the presentation. Also, the raw gameplay itself will have you playing through this game until you are forced to stop. For those of you who originally played the online version of pingu through, this is all of that but with a huge addictive twist. You are able to control the penguin in this game, by using the accelerometer on the ipod touch/iphone. By tilting the ipod you are able to cause the penguin to fly at different angles, with certain angles giving the penguin extra speed. You have two goals in this game, one is to collect fish, and the other is to simply build up a greater flying distance. By incorporating these extra features into the game, it really adds a ton of potential play time to the game, rather than leaving the you bored after a half hour. There are also many levels that constantly challenge your penguin gliding skills, as well as adding additional play time. So, whether you are a huge yeti fan, a penguin fan, or neither, I would definitely reccommend this game to you and think that you'll have a lot of fun with this game.
The UN-abominable snowman! :)
Hands-On Mobile never ceases to amaze me! The games that they create for the IPhone are MY FAVORITE on the market! And with this game, they combine my favorite sport (baseball) with my favorite mythical creature (the Yeti) – needless to say I was sold the instant I found it in the apps store. The penguins are super cute and I love the walrus in the background! It’s a nice touch to the personality of the game – lighthearted and very fun to play! Even though I struggled initially in terms of hitting the penguins (swinging and missing close to a dozen times), I eventually got a hang of it and now really enjoy it! I scored a glorious glide of 7,018 points – a new record for myself! I challenge my friends and family all the time to see if they can beat my score, but no one seems to have the skill I have for Yeti Sports! Thanks for yet another FANTASTIC game!
Always a pleasure
I remember the first time. Fell in love with the yeti sports games, on my pc! And now I have fallen in love all over again.
Please add the other yeti games in one package! I don't have a problem in paying for each game, as they are definately worth a buck or two to me, but I'd like to have just one applcation I can go to.
Also, it would tickle me pink to see the pc version available as well, tipping the phone to get the penguins to fly further is a wonderful addition, but I do miss just the ability to simply smack a penguin without having to keep him from nosediving by tipping the phone.
