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.

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. :)

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.

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.

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.

Game Play:

The game play in this app is fantastic and fun. The mazes change on every level and you have to change your strategy to beat each level and they get progressively harder. This is a great game!

Piggy bounces the opposite direction of what you pull him. I like that this action has a dotted line indicating which way he will go for aiming purposes. As you move up and through the maze try to get all of the bonus stars. On some levels you have to jump on buttons to press then and turn off an electrocution shorts so you can go through them, some have a trampoline button. Watch out for the rat or else he will steal your piggy!

Every level has a different challenge and it is a lot of fun. You really have to plan your moves to beat the app on some levels and be careful where you land after jumping. Watch out for the GOO! Just be aware that you can jump out of the goo so you can use it as a stopping point in the maze.

Home page:
* Play
* Select level - Basement, Kitchen, Bedroom, Nursery, Attic, and Bonus. Each level has 20 different games.
* Settings -sound, music, about the game, language and reset your progress

What I like:

The graphics are excellent and the game played perfectly on my Kindle Fire. Did I say the game graphics are outstanding! The game is unique with the different types of obstacles and it is well thought out. The graphics are colorful and the expressions on piggy's face are cute. I love it when he sniffs the ground or when he grins because he has done well on a jump. The music in the game is good but the lead in music is a little louder and I had to turn my volume down.
At the top of the game page there is a pause button and you can also change the targeting arrow to just a direction arrow.
