Product Description
Pick a Piggy
Pick a Piggy
Use you finger as demonstrated in the left image to navigate the shelves in the right image

Pong, a little toy piggy, dreams of getting out of the dusty basement to see the world. Help her climb through the maze-like house in this physics-based puzzle game. Catapult your bouncing piggy through the puzzle in more than 100 challenging levels to porky freedom.

Pong the Pig

Carefully use your finger to bounce and launch Pong through the levels. Use strategy and anticipate the physics with care. A bad bounce could mean trouble for Pong.

Along the way, help Pong collect stars and solve the engaging logic puzzles. But bacon-based brainteasers aren't your only problem. There are some pretty dangerous obstacles during your journey to freedom. Avoid spider webs, trap doors, buttons, levers, springs, cushions, rats, chemical spills, and electric shocks by ricocheting Pong off the walls, floors, and ceilings.

Go Where No Toy Pig Has Gone Before

Pick a Piggy offers a wealth of touchscreen-controlled entertainment on your Android device with quirky animations and lovable characters. Pick a Piggy is a premium pork-propelled puzzle game requiring both strategy and skill in equal measure.

I know I will be getting a lot of downvotes and hate for this, but I don't write reviews to be popular. I do it to help people; and having developed a few apps myself, I think I know a little bit about the Android OS.
For those of us with a rooted device, spotting apps that try to suck up our bandwidth is easy, not so much for the rest of Android users.

I suggest that people without a rooted device download a little tool called 3G Watchdog (I actually encourage you buy the Pro version). It is a fairly good network monitoring tool (as good as you can get without a rooted device). Establish a baseline and then open Pick a Piggy. Now let it run for a bit while playing. All that "up" and "down" data that you are seeing is the game communicating with a server, and combined with the ridiculous permission the game requires - well, play at your own risk.

I gave this app to my daughter on a rooted tablet and have no issues with it. The game IS fun and since my firewall is blocking all traffic, nothing can be done with my data.

With that out of the way, lets move on to the actual review.

Pick a Piggy is a pretty good puzzler that has you fling Pong the Pig across a hundred levels while collecting stars. Eventually you encounter electric gates that must be disabled, blocks to break through, and other hazards designed to slow you down. To balance this out there a few power ups and abilities that help Pong along.

The game's presentation is marvelous, with great hand drawn graphics, a fun soundtrack, and excellent effects. Even though the app is obviously targeting children, I found it quite fun. If it was not for the ridiculous permissions, rate begging, and a stream of data while I played this game, I would have rated it much higher.

3.0 out of 5 stars More for kids than adults! March 25, 2012
By Christy
Verified Purchase
I took a chance on this one because there want a free version to try. Kinda sorry I spent the money. I'm a big fan of Cut the Rope, the Marbians, Cheese Tower, Greedy Spiders and others that would be fun for kids but are challenging and clever enough for adults. This one is cute but feels like a kids game, clumsy and repetitive. Also try Osmos and Quell. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars For the most part, really really excellent October 7, 2012
Verified Purchase
Oh, how to describe this game?!? First, it's a "physics-based game" -- which seems to be the hot new "thing" lately. First, it was "swap two gems to match three", then it was "find the hidden object". Well, this game brings some incredible humor and graphics to the "physics" genre. It is trivial to learn, yet provides hours and hours of fun. As you move from level to level, the challenges will get harder, and new "impediments" will be put in the way. But basically, each level presents a puzzle to navigate Piggy through, gathering as many as three stars on each level. You do this by "projecting" Piggy as if on an invisible rubber band (think of playing Angry Birds without the slingshot, just sliding your finger as if it were there).

The graphics are exceptional, and the whole experience is a wonderful change from the "norm". As the levels get more difficult, they are still solvable -- for the most part. (I'm currently stuck on a level that -- even after many, many attempts -- still appears to be unsolvable. But I'm hoping for an online clue somewhere to get me over this one hurdle.)

I have laughed out loud on many occasions already, while playing the game. It's terribly cute (and at 62, there's not much left that I'd call "cute"), and very engaging.

1.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't Play November 30, 2012
By Craze
Verified Purchase
I got this as the FAOTD a while ago but was never able to actually play it on my Samsung Galaxy Tablet. At first I thought it was my tablet and tried again after fiddling with it. It would start playing and get slower and slower but then would freeze up and I would have to restart my tablet. I would never get a Force Close message which made it more annoying. It looked cute. I understand how the permissions are probably used but unfortunately not all devs are on the up and up and can do bad things with those permissions as well. Maybe it was the size and the connection it made to the internet that was causing it to freeze up. I will probably keep this backed up to download again later and give it another shot after having read a few recommendations.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Piggies Are cute December 29, 2012
Verified Purchase
Basically, we've all played this game many times before in various iterations. One of those bouncing, climbing, avoid the obstacles, upward moving maze style games. This one is no more or less entertaining than the rest. Basically, it comes to which graphics and characters you like best, cuz after that, there ain't much daylight between one game and the next. All are pretty much the same. For what it is, I like it well enough, but after I post this, I'll prolly forget I even have it.

I like the animations when the pig is not doing anything. Fun game, but I would expect some more versatility.

This game provided some entertainment while taking a long flight on vacation. Might be better for the younger crowd though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Game gets boring
It's fun to play while waiting or when you're bored. This game gets boring after awhile. Overall, it's just a basic simple game.
