Super Turbo Action Pig, bacon makes everything better, makes you wish Mary Poppins sang “A spoonful of bacon makes the medicine go down.” My apologies, I have bacon on my mind. Let’s start from the beginning. The object of the game is to avoid Butcher Bill’s flying arsenal. The only control you need to worry about is the thrusters button. Using the thrusters you move up and down the screen avoiding all peril. When you hear a laugh prepare yourself for a flying missile or two spinning saw blades at top and bottom. The only way to track your progress is determined by how far you have traveled. The game is simple. At first glance you would think the game would become repetitive, but so far it has brought me back for more playing time.
The graphics are well done. It fits the game well. The music reminded me of the sideshow carny on Coney Island I visited last year. I actually got to stand on a petite blond laying on a bed of nails. Awesome! I really liked the UI. It was kept simple and intuitive. The only thing to worry about on the screen was the pause button disguised as a pig snout. The only thing I felt lacking were some sort of rewards that one can obtain during game play besides how long one lasted playing. Other than that, this game is well put together in all facets. I look forward to more games from Joystick Generals.
