"Adventure in Crisis-ridden Space, How Long Can You Survive?"
Reviewed by: Jeremy | Latest updated: Nov 26, 2012
Pigs In Space: Prologue is the start of a bold new adventure for the swine race. A survival minigamebased on characters from the full game Pigs In Space, the precursor Prologue introduces those characters to the world and provides a fun little game to boot!
The menu screen itself is something of a game, with the floating pig being controlled by the player, and the ability to make the large pig catapult the other one into the air; you could find yourself playing with the menu more often than not! Players can choose from four different characters at the moment, with more promised in future updates. Currently one of the included characters is a Halloween pumpkin, so expect more seasonal updates further down the line.
The game itself is a short and sweet minigame, the player is shown a very brief pictorial set of instructions, and simply told to survive. Score increases the longer the player lasts in space, and of course this becomes more difficult over time. Enemies include black holes, which have a gravitational pull to suck you in, little green aliens which are equipped with lasers to zap you, and asteroid belts which fly across the screen in an attempt to harm your piggy. Star constellations also spring up eventually too, and whilst these don’t kill you, they can knock you in to more deadly trap. At first the game can be really challenging, but it is rewarding when you move on to later stages an come across aliens and constellations, and of course a bigger score.
Pigs In Space: Prologue is only a short minigame, but it doesn’t pretend to be anything else, and it could prove to be so addictive you spend hours playing it. Scores are collected by Scoreloop, so you can challenge your friends around the world, and make a real competition of swine survival. Full levels from Pigs In Space are also promised soon, as Prologue will act as the lite version for the full game. These levels are not survival levels, rather the player must direct four pigs from point A to point B all at the same time, dodging enemies similar to the ones found in Prologue. Until then though, you can keep those pigs flying through space, squealing at the mere thought of another black hole!
