Pig Eat Ball
Top Critic Average
I enjoyed Pig Eat Ball much more than I thought I would and I'll gladly go back to it whenever I want some frantic arcade fun.
The adventure mode is the true winner here, as the unbridled mayhem keeps up a solid pace, only really faltering in the back half as it gets just a tiny bit long in the tooth. Pig Eat Ball is a ridiculous and preposterous game that is thoroughly unique, even if it often wears its arcade inspirations on its sleeves. That all being said, it's a delightfully quirky experience that calls to mind throwback game concepts in a post-modern way.
While boring at times, Pig Eat Ball is a fun puzzle game that manages to bring the players in with its basic mechanics and interesting world and characters.
Princess Bow has her work cut out for her.
Overall, Pig Eat Ball is solid fun. With tweaks to the multiplayer, it could be a fantastic party game too.
Pig Eat Ball is a unique proposition in modern gaming – a classic-feeling arcade game with a completely original mechanic at its core. The puzzles, characters and world built around this mechanic are delightful, despite giving a first impression of being a little gross. Arcade and puzzle fans will find a lot to love here. Pig Eat Ball is utterly unique.
Pig Eat Ball is easily one of the best games I've played this year.
