Pengwyn has all the indications that its a poor man’s Pengo clone, and the C64 certainly had plenty of these :)
Postern was to jump on the bandwagon with their own clone, and the game was mentioned in various adverts. However it seems to have gone missing, and nothing has ever been seen of the game.
It’s possible that Postern went down before the game could get a release, or they saw there was too many Pengo clones and decided to not release the game.
The question is – how far did the game get before it was cancelled and can it be found? … It’s quite an old game, so any remaining disks might be deterioating. Might be one that we need to find quickly if it does exist.
Do you know anything more?…

Pengwyn is featured at MobyGames where it is said it was a 1984 game (all other sources agree on this year) and apart from screenshots for BBC Micro, Electron and Spectravideo the note at screen bottom claims neither the C64 version nor the Spectrum one were released at the time.
Thanks for the heads up! I think they probably got the C64/Spec reference from our page originally or saw the advert elsewhere. Will be interesting to find out if either were ever started.
