The story to Ammo Pigs is nonsensical. The game says in 2046, the Slaughterhouse A.I. turned all life to sausage, only the pigs remained. The e-shop said the A.I. turned only humans to sausage. Which is it? I don’t know, it really doesn’t matter. What does matter is that the game is fun!

Ammo Pigs: Armed and Delicious

You’re a bipedal pig armed with a gun in Ammo Pigs. You navigate maze-like levels, flipping switches and shooting enemies. You need to rescue 3 other pigs and keep them alive until you get to the exit(for a coin bonus). The pigs are adept at getting around, but are easily picked off by enemies.

There are ammo vending machines that give you power-ups, either a double bullet, rockets or grenades. They’re expensive and not really all the necessary, at least on the first couple of levels.

Shoot food vending machines for health pickups.

What’s interesting about Ammo Pigs is that the point completely changes based on the difficulty level. In casual, if you die, the level resets, meaning your goal is just to enjoy the game. In rogue, if you die, the game resets, meaning the game is a test of endurance to see how far you get. In super rogue, if any of the pigs die, the game will also reset, making it that much harder.

Ammo Pigs: Armed and Delicious

I bought Ammo Pigs being extremely skeptical, but was pleasantly surprised about how good the game is. It’s nothing Earth-shattering, but good fun for awhile.

Overall: Ammo Pigs: Armed and Delicious is old-school action fun.

Verdict: Recommended
