Sky Pigs is probably a familiar game to many of you, especially if you've played Helicopter or any of it's variants. We set out to create a multiplayer game inspired by Helicopter and by the neat distractions in the XBLA Indie game which also is Helicopter like, called Techno Kitty Adventure that tried to distract you with all sorts of crazy stuff in the background.

So in Sky Pigs, you try to survive the longest, but even if you lose your three lives, you can roll a slot machine to summon distractions, or even come back to life if you're lucky.

Playing With Friends: When you're in the game lobby, you can invite any of your friends to play with you by clicking the "Copy Invite Link" button. Just send it to them via IM or whatever, and they'll join your game. It's more fun that way.

** This game is CPU intensive! And we have to ESTIMATE the display of other players, so their silhouettes will seem to go through obstacles! But they die when they really do. **

Controls:

Mouse Click - Go Up
or
Up Arrow - Go Up
or
Spacebar - Go Up
or
W - Go Up

and uh. LET GO of the button you use to go down. derp.

REVENGE:

If you lose 3 of your lives while there are players still going at it in game, you can roll the slot machine for revenge distractions. There's even a chance to come back to life... almost in tact.

Leveling Up:

If you're logged in with an OMGPOP account, we add up the total distance you've ever gone and give you a level based on it. Reaching level 40 turns you into a different animal we used in beta.

OPTIONS:

In the top left, there are two options "Reduce Lag" which caps the frame rate at 30, which may help some people. and "Music On" which obviously will stop playing music if you turn it off.

OTHER STUFF

This game is really resource intensive! And yes, other players in the games positions are only ESTIMATED, so it may look like they are going through obstacles, but they are not in reality. It's only an estimate of the direction they are going.

Mom, remember those times you said "When pigs fly"

Well look as what the power of rocket science has done!

This game is pretty competitive, which is a good thing. I don't like the fact that sometimes it looks like my opponent(s) flies through an object, but eh beggars can't be choosers. The fact this game is MMO is really the only thing that makes this game worth playing, but at least it's something to pass the time.

If you like Helicopter you'll dig it.

It's like helicopter but with jet pack flying pigs, I love trolling with the spinner.

Lovvvveeeee Sky PIgs!

I absolutely love Sky Pigs! I've always loved helicopter games, and to have one made by OMGPOP is just amazing. And if you get to level 40 in the game, you become a cool hamster instead of a pig! But you have to have an account for it to keep track of your level. To sign up, just use this link: http://omgpop.com/?r=53ee, it'll only take a minute.
