Ratings and Reviews
Fun and HARD.
This game has taken so much of my time but I still find every level to be exciting and frustrating. Trail and error is key. Completing a level is quite satisfying and the rush is like nectar. The pixel graphics are also very tasteful.
There are 5 (not including the tutorial) worlds and the difficulty is compounded with each world of 6 levels. Each world introduces a new concept and every other level shows the player a new way to use that mechanic where the others focus on building each skill to the max. If you search hard enough you may also find some secret shortcuts in levels so look out for those!
There are also goals set by each level to earn stars which help you progress(3 stars per level. 1 for completing, 1 for getting a certain amount of collectable and 1 for completing the level in time.)
All in all this game is very good and I have had a blast pulling out my hair while playing it.
This game is beautiful and fun and I want to love it, but there are glitches that make the frustratingly difficult become just frustrating and angering. You need fast twitch controls in this game.
I know I’m hitting the buttons and the spicy piggy isn’t jumping. Is there like a half second delay after landing that’s supposed to be part of the game?
Another thing that keeps happening, I’ll reach a checkpoint and it’ll show me the start, but the spicy piggy isn’t there. And it’ll just keep looping.
Until these glitches are fixed it’s not worth getting too invested in this beautiful little game, but it’s free, unless you pay to have ads removed.
Fun and Challenging
As a fan of tough platformers with an emphasis on speed running (such as Super Meat Boy) I’m definitely enjoying Spicy Piggy.
The controls feel great in this game. Dashing into a jump feels good. It’s a 3 button platformer, but that doesn’t mean it’s an easy game. You can jump, slide and breathe fire (slide doubles as a speed boost/dash button). You will need to use all these buttons in combos with good timing. The dash allows you to shave tons of time off your run through a level, but you have to have perfect timing because it make the game much faster. If you don’t use the dash, some levels are easier... but I GOTTA GET THAT STAR FOR BEATING THE LEVEL FAST.
My one gripe is the intermittent ads. I’m a long time Nitrome fan, and I would absolutely have paid to remove the ads. Sadly you cannot. No in-app purchases here...
If you’re reading this Nitrome you should TOTALLY port Spicy Piggy to console ;)
