Penguins on Ice is a great new free Fire TV game worth checking out

The new game Penguins on Ice has just been released for Amazon Fire TV devices and it’s a great free game for casual play.

The game is easy to pick up and challenging to master, thanks to its gradual difficulty ramp up. If you’re looking for a casual game to fill those few minutes here and there when you have to pause what you’re watching while you wait for someone to refresh their drink or grab a snack, Penguins on Ice is worth a try.
