The onset of global warming and the resultant changes in the world’s climate is having a devastating effect on the Arctic and the animals that live there. Based on the follow up to March of the Penguins, Arctic Tale follows the story of two of these amazing creatures as they face their daily battle to survive in the ever changing surroundings of the Arctic Circle.

As a cub, The Arctic is your playground. Under the watchful eye of your mother, you can explore and play all day long. Just watch out for the adult male bears, because they don't like playful cubs. The challenges you face are indicated by the Bear Markers. You can also play and complete challenges as other animals, but you have to unlock them first. To play as another land animal, you must go through one of the magic caves hidden around the game. You can then play their challenges as well. To play as a water animal, as long as you have collected sufficient Silver Paw Prints, you can go to their markers directly and play their challenges.

Arctic Tale also includes minigames where you search for food to help you survive. Advance through the game by playing the various challenges (Orca Race, Walrus Chase, Ice Slide and Clam Scavenge are just a selection of what awaits) to win Bronze, Silver and Gold awards. You can then use these awards to unlock the next stage of your bear's life. Finally, there's a two-player option available to play party games against a friend in Catch-A-Seal, Food Fight, Sweet Music and Balance Fight.
