Seal To Whales is an Atari 2600 game released in 1983 by Datatech Enterprises. The game is a Pengo clone where the player controls a whale, and the goal is to hit a bunch of seals with the ice cubes. The game is controlled with the joystick-like most Atari 2600 games, comes on a standard cartridge, and is only for 1 player.

As of now, this game is only known to have been released in Europe with no variants, or pirated copies of this game known to exist. Currently, only box shots, cart shots, and screenshots have surfaced so far, which can be seen on the AtariBoxed page for the game.[1] To this day, it's unknown whether, or not the game will get dumped, and whether, or not a North American release ever happened. It's highly likely that a North American release didn't happen due to the video game crash of 1983 that happened due to an overabundance of shovelware on the market in North America.

According to Atarimania, the game was allegedly originally made by Home Vision under the name Whales, but that has yet to be confirmed as of yet.[2]
