Iceberg Escapades is an Arcade game originally released in 2005 under the name Icecap Adventure. The game was retired for several years, returning in 2013 with an updated title screen and new name.


In Iceberg Escapades, the player controls penguin who is hopping from iceberg to iceberg collecting stars. Each level has a set amount of stars to collect, visible in the upper left corner. There are 20 levels in total.

Players start the game with five lives, losing one when the penguin falls in the water. If the player stands on one iceberg for too long, it will break and the player will lose a life. If the player stands on one iceberg for too long, it will break and the player will lose a life. Players can gain lives by completing blizzard levels, where the player moves more slowly but stars are worth more points.

There are 20 levels in the game, each of increasing difficulty. As the levels progress, the icebergs move more quickly and begin to bump into each other more violently. This makes it difficult to predict where to jump next. Also, the number of stars to collect increases from 8 in Levels 1-3 to 10 in Levels 4-11 to 12 in Levels 12-20.

"Blizzards" are levels in which it is snowing. On these levels, the penguin jumps at half of the normal speed, but stars are worth double the points. The Blizzard levels are:

  • Level 4
  • Level 8
  • Level 12
  • Level 16

When you complete a Blizzard level, you earn an extra life!


The penguin is controlled with the arrow keys, pressing and holding the spacebar to jump. An arrow and a dotted line will appear on the screen, which shows where the penguin will land. Time the jump by releasing the spacebar when the arrow is over the desired iceberg.


  • Always jump to the location where the iceberg to which you are jumping is going to be. If the iceberg is moving, it will not be in the same location before and after you jump, so jump towards the place it is moving.
  • One of the most important strategies in the game is to let the smallest icebergs melt underneath you. To do this, sit on a small iceberg for a while until it begins to break up. Then, jump to safety onto another iceberg. If you time this correctly, you will be safe and the smaller iceberg will have disappeared. The smallest icebergs are the most difficult to land on safely, so getting rid of them makes the game much easier. Try to use this strategy only after you already have to land on a small iceberg. If you are very successful, you can limit your icebergs down to just two.
  • Do not let all icebergs but one melt, or you will lose the game!
  • You do not have to jump directly from an iceberg with a star to another iceberg with a star. Instead, you can make as many jumps in between as you would like. To avoid jumping very long distances, first jump to an iceberg closer to the one you need to get to, and then jump from that second iceberg to the star.
  • Use the back arrow to help you stay on each iceberg after jumping. Moving yourself away from the edges of the iceberg and helping the penguin stay on after jumping are key to a successful game.
