Pig Shot major update! (Retina Display, Game Center, Universal, etc)



I've been working really hard alongside Sven (from Mudloop) for the past few months on a major update for our much celebrated pig rolling game Pig Shot. We're delighted to announce that the update has finally completed and we hope that the new features that we've included will further enhance the pig rolling experience for 760,000 players we have to date!

The update will be submitted by the end of the week and should become available before next weekend.

Here are some of the new features that we've included in patch v1.1.0. Despite the major update on the game, the price point of Pig Shot will remain unchanged at $0.99.

New Features in version 1.1.0:
• Game Center Leaderboards and Achievements
• 'Retina Display' graphics
• Universal App (supports iPhone, iPod Touch & iPad)
• 17 New Achievements to be Unlocked
• Female pig (Maggie) character and character selection screen
• Progressive day & night gameplay
• Leaderboard format for furthest gameplay distance
• New obstacles and powerups
• Interactive sound effect when bump against obstacles
• Setting menu for volume adjustments
• Off game music by default
• Greatly reduced build size
• Fixed minor bugs

Vote for the new Pig Shot Icon!

I'd say add some more saturation if possible to the icon.
other than that, already loved this game!

We will have to delay the update for a few days due to pending addition of several localizations languages. Sorry for making anyone wait.

Thanks alot Josh. Took your suggestion and came up with an icon with higher background saturation.

I prefer to use the female pig as an icon, though.

Extensive Knowledge of CBT. Just send me a PM!

Like this? It's adorable but will most certainly drive away any potential male players haha!
