Super Turbo Action Pig Review: When Pigs Can Fly…

I had some hands-on preview time with Super Turbo Action Pig, but the App Store rendition is always the best one to review (duh).  But what makes Super Turbo Action Pig so… unique?  Well duh once again, it’s the pig!

Almost every single day for breakfast, I eat sausages, eggs, waffles, and strawberries.  Occasionally though, I do start to include some strips of bacon along with some other pig products.  I love eating pigs, though, and I must say that whoever decided to chop those babies up may well be on their way to the Hall of Fame.

So when an evil chainsaw-wielding menace is out to chop up a jet pack-wielding pig, I can totally understand where that bad boy is coming from.  Flying knives, saws, and spikeballs are just the few methods of murder the Butcher Bill uses to try and destroy the little piglet.


Artwork: They weren’t kidding when they claimed to have designed the Chillingo website, Trenches, and other works of art.  The artwork is probably the main selling point for most people, and I must say that this is one of the best-looking Copter clones I’ve seen.

The perfect casual game: They’ve included everything for the makings of a great, casual game: OpenFeint, addictive gameplay, and easy-to-learn controls.  If you’re looking for some great time-wasters, this is one game that should atleast be considered.


Repetitive: It does start to get repetitive, and you won’t be playing this for hours on end.  Still, this is a casual game that only has one purpose.

One game mode: It would have been nice to include more than just one game mode; something other than the light story mode included.  I just didn’t feel that the game had enough meat to it; it’s just so simple that for the more complex types of people, this may just be out of their league.

I enjoyed Super Turbo Action Pig; I love the name, game, and artwork.  Gameplay is a bit unoriginal, but The Joystick Generals did a solid job of reinventing gameplay that hasn’t exactly done well on the iPhone.  The more hardcore gamers may want to pass on this one, but for those looking for some stress-relieving time-wasters, this is one that should be added to your wish list.

Super Turbo Action Pig was developed by Joystick Generals, and I played through version 1.0 on my iPhone 3GS.  The price is $0.99.

About Daniel

I have been an iPhone game addict ever since the NES emulator came out on the 1.1.4 iPhone 2G. After 2.0 and the App Store came out, my iPhone homescreen has never been the same. Other than writing reviews for App Store games, I play soccer/football, American football, volleyball, and golf. I love going to the beach and fishing on the pier. Some games not available on iPhone/iPod Touch that I truly love are the Call of Duty series, Guitar Hero III, Madden NFL 09, and PGR: Gotham Racing.

  1. repetitiveness doesn’t seem to be much of a problem to me. it’s about as repetitive as doodle jump in my opinion!
