App description: You are a monkey, clinging to a pig as it takes you for the ride of your life!

Avoid Space Unicorns and Nom Nom Hamsters while hanging onto a bucking squealing pig in this addictive side scroller. Leap pits and cliffs while the pig tries to knock you off by destroying everything in its path. Skillfully time your jumps to reach power-ups and achieve record scores. Enjoy the ever-changing artwork and catchy music in this survival game for all ages.

How long can you cling to this wacky pig roller coaster ride through a world gone insane?

Game Impressions

Pretty cute and original. A novel concept in an endless runner where you need to control the independent jumping of the riding monkey (to grab power-ups and avoid hazards pig can just run through without fear like shrubs) and the pig (to avoid cliff walls and pits).

I also found the game's theme song too cute since it was pretty much a song based on the game's title.

The song is actually from a youtube video posted a few months back.

Baby monkey, backwards on a pig, baby monkey. Genius!
