The inspiration of 4 pigs party game is from fairy tale. The main feature of 4 pig party game is that it should be played together in the same time and space on only one iPad, just like a board game. This game can be played by 2 to 4 persons.

In 4 Pigs, each player chooses his/her own role and tries to win as many apples as possbile. All roles use their own skills to mutually challenge each other, and avoid the wolf at the same time. The mutual mischief between friends gives surprise at all the time during playing this game.

For each run, players can choose landscape and weather. Each mode has different interrupt effect. For example, for thunder weather, it can let players become burnt and frozen; for beach landscape, umbrella obstacles will appear randomly. All these effects give new twist and fun for each run.

At the beginning, players choose the role that they want. Each role has its own skills. When role eats the yellow star, skills will be activated. Some skills under weather mode and landscape mode will have more power.

As we mentioned, this game is from fairy tale. A wolf cannot be omitted. At each run, one pig will become wolf randomly. Being a wolf, the quantity of apples will be deducted continuously. Hence, the wolf player will try his best to return to the pig role as soon as possible.

In 4 Pigs, besides its classical mode –Ghost Arrest, a football mode can be chosen. With very easy operation, it simulates the football game. All the skills appearing in the football game can be found here, such as, jostle, shot, possession, and defense. All of these challenge players’judgement and co-operation between team members.

For the apples earned from each run, player can use them to buy new roles, weathers, and skills in the Apple Store. Some magical crystal coins will appear randomly for different modes. Those coins can drag out some novelties which cannot be bought in an Apple Store.
Each download is unique. Your friends download of the same 4 Pigs game on his/her ipad, your pigs may look different from his/hers.

4 Pigs game is full of high entertainment. Since its operation is easy, it is same for new or experienced players. Players can easily group together.
