Brilliant! I loved the first one so much! Will this be premium or f2p? Thanks!

My screen name is misunderstood. I am not some arrogant person who thinks he's so cool. Cool, because I like cold weather and Pepper because I'm hot.

WOW! Fantastic news.
What a blast from the past. Hoggy was a fantastic, addictive and sometimes frustrating little platformer game.
I am so happy that a lot of these older games still run great on iOS 10.

On a side note, any chance of an update to Four Letter Words!, one of my favorite word games.

Probably no update to four letter, sorry... it's the worst selling game I ever did in my life!

It's great to see this isn't dead. I'm a huge fan and can't wait to see this game out.

I am truly sorry to hear that, it is a shame that sometimes gems like that often fly under the radar and go unnoticed.
Thank you for the update. I still play Four Letter Words! from time to time, besides, the game works just fine on iOS 10.

Looking forward to the release, and I do wish you success with Hoggy 2.

Now you don't have to support the Siri remote.. any chance this will play on Apple TV too?

Hi AC,

I hadn't looked into it at all... now that you bring it up, though, I'll definitely see about supporting it. I should look into Roku too... these TV boxes sort of fell under my radar. But Hoggy 2 would play very well on anything where the remote can act like an old Nintendo controller.

Coolpepper, I completely missed your post.

I am trying to get away from F2P because I hate it. I will either try a demo (i.e. play 30 levels then buy) or a simple outright buy to play.

If those fails, I'll have to drop back to F2P... but I want to give it a chance. I truly hate what has happened with the game monetization.

Thanks! You have my money on day 1. I also hate f2p but an unlock sounds like a good way to go.
