App description: Thanks to the 5th World team, Hogtide is now FREE for a short while!

YEEHAW!!! Smuggle moonshine! Rescue babes! Ride a PIG!

Keep ahead of the oncoming HogTide!

Hogtide sees the player mounted on the back of a pig riding to escaped from the authorities. The player must collect beans to keep his hungry mount from running out of fuel. As they are already wanted by the law, the player can raise their bounty by collecting moonshine to run it over the boarder, and by freeing the beautiful women that have been left for dead in the unrelenting desert sands. All the while, the oncoming Hogtide will be chasing the player, trying to catch them and ram them headlong into anything that will stop them in their tracks.

Game Features:

Tap or Swipe between lanes in order to collect beans; the fuel your hog needs to keep going!
Increase the bounty against you by rescuing distressed damsels and collecting moonshine!
Get as far as you can before the law catches up with you!
OpenFeint enabled!

It's a:
bean chompin'
booze chuggin'
wench freein'
hog ridin'
law breakin'
bounty raisin'
dollar spendin'
GOOD TIME!

PLEASE NOTE: This game is currently optimized for 3G devices and above, and may perform poorly on 2nd Generation devices.

Hmmm... The developers spelling of the title, "Hogtide", as opposed to correctly spelled and widely-accepted, "Hog-Tied" or "Hogtied" leaves one scratching his noggin.

I guess it was intentional...

Yeah, it's a play on words; "tide" as in ocean tide, but with hogs.

Anyone know how the game is?

From the beta I played, it was pretty fun. But since it looks like its improved a lot from the beta, I'd say its definitely worth 99c.

Wow. That is some nice artwork. Any ideas who did the art? Sad Princess had some really nice artwork, too, although I'm still undecided if I like that game as I have to play it more.

Anyway, thanks for the post. I'll give this game a shot, mainly based on the beautiful artwork (and low price, of course).
