The original freeware cult hits TAGAP: The Apocalyptic Game About Penguins and TAGAP 2 – remastered for modern 64 bit systems!

Two games in one package – it's time to replay these freeware cult relics.

TAGAP: The Apocalyptic Game About Penguins (2007)

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 2 (2011)

TAGAP 2 continues the story of cyber-penguins Pablo and Pedro, who now have joined forces. Following the events of TAGAP, our waddling heroes stumble on even bigger zombie penguin army, spearheaded by general Primo, the most epic cyber-penguin ever! More advanced and better equipped, Primo and his troops are going to accomplish what their predecessors failed to achieve; to conquer the world!

Install instructions

Just unzip and have at it.

Modern versions of Windows have something called Smart Screen, which claims it can tell if a program is safe or not. In reality, in order to appear as 'safe', the publisher needs to get a certificate,  which you have to buy for big bucks. And these certificates expire and require yearly renewing. As freeware developers we can't afford that. TAGAP games have no online connectivity and so far hasn't blown anyone's computer.

Hello, is there a reason why the Extras background music isn't included in the soundtrack album for TAGAP 2? Funny enough, I've been playing (and loving) this game (and soundtrack) since the day it came out and only a few days ago did I realize, "Hey! How come the 'Extras' music isn't on the soundtrack?!" XD
