Non-Traditional Platformer, Bizarre Protagonist 'Lion Pig' (Universal) $1.99 => Free

A pig with a lion mane!






There is another video in the store. Some puzzle elements and NO jump button (use mushrooms). Diving: Just wait until the animal sinks down. Published two months ago, free for the first time. Recommended!

Quote (dev) from the main thread:

The game is not a runner. It's a non-traditional platformer. Here's what I mean. There are no virtual controls. Players control Lion Pig by pressing on the right side of the screen to move right. Pressing on the left side of the screen to move left. Swipe in specific directions to wall jump as well as drop from ceilings. The game has a heavy focus on both horizontal and vertical movement and you use your surroundings to complete levels. It's not a traditional platformer where you have left right arrows and a jump button. It's not designed that way so if you are expecting this then I don't want you to be shocked! It is however, very easy to control as even my buddy's 3-year old can play the game. But hey, don't take my word for it: I'm only the developer who is probably trying to make a buck or two. haha. But no in all seriousness Lion Pig is a fun game with no gimmicks or strings attached. Just a fun platformer with a good amount of content and tons of replay value.
