Flying Pigs

Bacon is good and Flying Pigs is a super simple game of balance and accuracy using the accelerometer in your iPhone.

The concept is quite simple really. You are a UFO that flies around the screen. To stay alive you have to avoid hitting anything but the bacon on the screen. The control and interface in Flying Pigs is at the core what makes the game a success, addictive and unique each time.

To play hold your iPhone almost flat as if you were trying to use it as a balance. Even slight movements are important so it helps you have a steady hand and be mighty quick with your thinking and reflexes. If you start to tilt too fast or make sudden moves your UFO starts flying at hyper speed and you don’t want that. Your playing area wraps around at all sides of the screen, just like the old games such as Asteroids and Pacman used to. So your UFO can escape the pigs by going off the top and coming out of the bottom etc. Your enemies however bounce off the walls, which means you have an advantage there.

At first you are dodging one flying pig in the daylight. As light turns to dark the pigs grow in size and you start having a tougher time escaping the Flying pigs. If that wasn’t enough you also get to avoid thunderous clouds, hogs and dragos. Each game stars with 3 lives. Each time you hit anything but the bacon you lose a life. If you grab the bacon you gain a life. Your score increases the longer you stay alive.

The graphics and design in Flying Pigs are simple and colorful hand drawn cartoons. The sound effects are pretty funny with humorous oink noises, accompanied by a joyous musical theme.

Sobits has dared to move outside of the normal boundaries and has come up with something special here. Flying Pigs is one of those iPhone apps that will make you mad at first because you will probably suck horribly at it, but then you’ll learn how to control it and will get hooked trying to get a higher score. After each game you see your score and your high score. Staying true to its minimalist nature, Flying Pigs doesn’t do online scoreboards or fancy bloated features. Definitely worth a look if you’re into addictive offbeat iPhone games.
