Hoggy iPhone app Review

Description:

The Hoggy iPhone app is a puzzle game that takes platforming to the next level.  You take the place of the friendly blob, Hoggy.  But all is not well in the land because your girlfriend was taken by those pesky moon men.  You have to rescue her but the only way to do it is to visit all of the forty five jar worlds and eat all of the fruit that is contained inside of them.  You will love the sidescrolling action and the cartoony 2D graphics as you progress through the game.

To play effectively, all you need to do is to tilt your iPhone and use the accelerometer to make Hoggy move left or right.  You can also turn him upside down by tapping the screen.  You will have to use a mixture of smarts and quickness in order to get all of the fruit and save your girlfriend!

Features:

  • This new edition of the game has a lot more replay value than the older version.  In this version of Hoggy the game no longer just stops playing after you beat Hogatha.  You can now go back and finish playing once you get through all of the credits
  • There is now a soundtrack that accompanies the game and lets you relax and have an all encompassing experience as you play through the levels
  • There was a bug in the old version that let you get out of a jar as a square but in the totally wrong place.  This new edition has corrected that
  • The options and settings are fully customizable and you can go through and change the positions of the buttons to make them more user friendly
  • There are over 45 different jar worlds that you have to go through, devouring all of the fruit in your path
  • The controls are simple, you tilt the phone to move and tap it to reverse gravity

Conclusion:

There were a few bugs in the older version of the game that took away from the game as a whole, but they have since been fixed and it is much better.  They also added some other customization features to make it more enjoyable.  You will love how challenging some of these levels are, and also the ability to keep playing once you have beat the main boss.  This game offers a lot of replay value and should be a must have among iPhone apps.

Voted 4 stars by iPhone app users and currently costs $2.99 to download.
