Interplanetary Pig Farmer Eadwig Addlethorpe owns a series of
magnificent pig farms on a large planetoid in the belt of debris
between Mars and Jupiter.
Unlike their earthbound relatives, Eadwig's stock have
evolved hollow bones and powerful wings which enable them to fly,
which makes things pretty awkward for our hero. As you can imagine,
these free range flying pigs are not easy to catch, so the swineherd
extraordinaire has installed a number of teleporters in order to send
them off to the pig processing plant. The difficulty lies in directing
pigs to the teleporter, and that's where you come in.
Eadwig can move left and right around the levels, and jump from one
platform to another. The screen scrolls in every direction to keep
up with him. Being a large planetoid means there's a substantial
gravitational force to contend with, falling too far causes Eadwig
to lose energy, indicated by the pig at the bottom of the status
panel. Once the pig in the status panel turns into a tin of spam the
game is over. Eadwig may pick up most of the bricks - though only
one block at a time, he's only half-human - and deposit them elsewhere
to build walkways, stairs and block passages to redirect pigs to
wherever he wants them.
Contact with pigs drains Eadwing's health, and sends him flying.
Bottles of oinkment are scattered around, and collect these will help
restore Eadwig. Apples are also to be found - the pig processing plant
does a profitable sideline in apple sauce - and by collecting these,
Eadwig accumulates a bonus bot which he receives once all the later
ones are cursed with a miniature black hole. This roams around the
farm sucking up blocks and spewing them out again totally wrecking
any of Eadwig's constructions it happens to encounter.
So what are
you waiting for? There's "snout" to it.
