Hoggy is a fun puzzle platformer that combines the best elements of classic side-scrolling video games with a unique puzzle flavor!
You control Hoggy. Your girlfriend has been kidnapped by the moon men, and the only way to get her back is to eat all the fruit out of 45 crazy jar-worlds!
The game has simple controls. Tip your iPhone to move Hoggy left or right, and touch the screen to reverse his gravity.
Use your reflexes to grab all the fruit in each level, and use your mind to force your enemies to grab the fruit you can't reach!
It's a great retro-arcade experience! If you love side scrollers and arcade action, you'll love Hoggy!
o Fixes a bug that caused the game to play very slowly on older devices.

Really Fun, but Needs 1 Improvement
I really enjoy this game and get very into it because it is so fun. However, sometimes I get 'into it' so much that I accidentally press "Leave Jar" at the Final Boss battle instead of "Retry Jar" (has happened twice), causing me to start from the very beginning of the very long alien battle. Seeing how there is little room for mistake in the first place, it gets very frustrating when I have spent 30 min to get to almost the end of the boss jar and then my finger touches 1/4 of an inch lower on the screen than I should, forcing me to go to right back to the very beginning. Is it possible for you, the creators, to make a double check message that appears before we leave a jar to confirm and make sure that leaving is what we wish to do? Or even make it so that I could leave the jar and come back to my previous place? As soon as this problem is fixed, then I will adjust the rating score accordingly. Thank you again for such a fun game!
One of the worst games on the app store. First few levels are fun but they get to the point where quite literally "luck" is required. For example the final boss has a section where you must hop from platform to platform to avoid enemies. However often enemies spawn before platforms become accessible. Also included is spending five minutes reaching a part where you must then hope three enemies will cluster otherwise you die. The odds of this are so small that you end up spending several hours waiting for luck. Now within these hours you may make it to the next section in which you must quickly grab an item and escape. But this item turns into a square which the tilt sensor always makes you turn again. This sends you back to the very begging. Many levels contain this problem resulting in many hours of redoing gameplay. I don't generally write reviews but this one deserves it. Even for a free game. (which tries to charge you for more luck based levels)
It's a decent game, but very tedious and annoying at times. The boss in the spaceship especially - I've tried to beat him several times. Not being able to resume wherever you've gotten to with the boss is a serious annoyance. Got as far the "Let's finish this" screen before accidentally hitting "Leave jar" on a death. The result is having to replay the ENTIRE boss stage(which I've already played I assume most of half a dozen times.) Normally I can tolerate this sort of thing but after having the game crash several times in the boss stage(if you are on a moving platform and hit into a wall - the game locks up) - and consequently having to restart the entire stage I'm simply tired of it.
The rest of the game I played was a relatively decent puzzler - but what I assume is the final boss is such a turn-off I really don't think I'll bother finishing the rest of the game after 38 stars.
