A Battlestar (regionless star battle) puzzle game starring penguins! :)

Place penguins such that each row and column contains exactly 1 penguin, and no 2 penguins touch.

Right-click - Mark cell

Yay, more star battle puzzles!

Like the Megaman music, too - always a fan of the music of that series.

Oh, this was a delightful little starting position!

Usually there's a row or column with a single legal square to get things started, but this very prettily sidesteps that. What a fun random puzzle!

@packbat: Nice one! Yeah for 1★ puzzles my generator tends to give easy starts on average, but once in a while you get gems with beautiful break-in logic. :D

...okay, I'm not sure how to solve this one. Is this supposed to happen?

(Edit: I'm leaving PICO-8 open for the day in case there's something I can do to help debug - I'm not sure there is, but if you have a debug mode or something then I can try to access it.)

(Also, I've played hundreds of games of this and hundreds of games of the earlier one, so whatever bug this is must be rare.)

@packbat: Really weird- I've never seen that happen. All I can think of which might have caused that is some numerical precision issue when trying to randomly remove tiles to make a unique board- it could be that the probabilities didn't add up to 1 there. D:

I have to think it was that, yeah - what a weird incident!

Great little puzzle, LOVE the penguins. :D I like that the difficulty is adjustable and the penguins are removable without clearing the whole board (guess who didn't realize that at first :P)
