Why is that a problem for you? I don't see the need to walk large
distances on the world map very often.

That's something I could very well imagine. It's even possible for large
worlds if the levels are designed in a way that allows to rescue
(nearly) all Pingus. Surely, such a solution might be far from obvious.
This would also fit quite well with the idea of secret exits (most
likely reading as: hard to reach) - using that one you find a group of
other Pingus which will help you to get through the rest of the levels.
Might be a few you had to leave behind who found another way to get back
to the rest or something else.
This shouldn't be very difficult to code, designing the levels/worlds
right is most likely to be much more work.

Bye David
