Unidentified Flying Oinkers for iPhone/iPod ($0.99) by Serendipitous Bits LLC is a creatively designed game that tests your reflexes in hopes of helping all of your unidentified flying oinkers (UFO) fly away when they meet their wings. It’s always been their dream to fly, so help them out a little, okay?
When I first checked out this game, it looked pretty simple and appeared to have nothing to it. After digging a little deeper, the game unfolded with many new innovative tactics, which led to loads of strategy. When the other gameplay tactics starts piling in (pun intended), so does the adrenaline. The main object of the game is to drag the pink piglets to their feathery wings and let them fly away to safety. To reach the desired three wings for completion, you need to reach a certain benchmarked score noted by the level accordingly.
Nearly every single level brings a new type of twist to the gameplay. This is refreshing because I was never bored. The UFOs need to eat and drink water, so you can raise your high score. Keep in mind, the more food a single UFO eats, the less points are awarded to you for each food item eaten by that specific UFO. Sharing is key! Also, like real life, the food can go bad if it sits too long. If the bad food is eaten, that UFO will receive a tummy ache and he will not be able to fly or eat until he swallows some medicine.
Fan of zombies? UFOs can also fall from the sky in zombie form. They cannot fly nor eat, just like a pig with a tummy ache, until they acquire a zombie life kit.
Water is usually considered a good thing, but in this game you’ll have a love-hate relationship with it. If the water is drunk, you will receive points. If the water sits on the chain-linked bridge and a cement bag falls on it, it will turn into a cinder block, which is extremely heavy. If too much weight from food, cinder blocks, and other dropped objects pile up, the chain-linked bridge will break. This results in a loss and you will have to restart the level.
This game is intense and a lot of fun. I recommend it to anyone looking for a quick and exciting way to waste time. Pick it up from the App Store today!
