ePig Surf takes a little pig and puts him
on a surfboard. He surfs through rocks, dolphins, islands, fog, sea
turtles, sting rays and more. This game is controlled by moving the
iPhone/iPod Touch or iPad left and right to steer. The longer you stay
on the more boards you unlock. Each new board controls better than the
The graphics in ePig Surf have a great color scheme that is alive with color. The one issue I have is the graphics are a little small. Yes I watch House Hunters. There are also instances in the game where you have nowhere to go by the time certain things appear on the screen. Imagine rocks allowing only one path through, and then a shark comes up that one spot. I had that happen, as well as sea turtles speeding up to close the gap. For a minute I thought they were drivers trying to stop me from making it to my destination.
The music in ePig Surf is total surfer tunes dude. The first five minutes I was cool with it. After that I had to turn the sound completely off because it gave me a splitting headache. The different animals in ePig Surf have some interesting sounds. I think the pig was passing gas throughout the game which is really gross. After every wipeout the piggie would show me his tail - which was also kinda gross.
Family Friendly Gaming was provided a download code for ePig Surf on the iPhone/iPod Touch. The app costs ninety-nine cents. Which is a very reasonable price in my opinion. One of the joys of ePig Surf is to make it father and see what comes out next. I guarantee that you will rarely like it. There are enough unlockable boards to keep family members engaged.
The gyroscope controls work really well. The animations would stutter a few times here and there when trying to make extreme moves. I also wish ePig Surf would let me start at different levels instead of have to go through the entire thing every single time. Maybe a sequel will include something like that. I had fun playing ePig Surf on the iPhone/iPod Touch.
I was eating some bacon trying to figure out the lesson in ePig Surf. The main lesson I got was to avoid dangers as they come towards me. The one way ePig Surf lets us do so is to go around them. Some of the collision detection frustrated me while playing this game because I thought I just missed the rock, and my piggie was flying through the air.
