IUGO released their long awaited turn-based trajectory game Star Hogs into the App Store this morning. Star Hogs [Lite, $4.99] is a Worms-like trajectory game in which you take turns firing weapons at your opponent or moving along the play field. The full version of the game also offers online multiplayer over Wi-Fi, 3G or EDGE networks.

Each game turn is limited by a certain amount of "energy" which can be used for firing or moving. Additional energy or money for upgrades can be earned through finding "ore" scattered in the play field. Firing is performed using a familiar tap-aiming while power is determined by how long you hold the fire button. About 20 different weapons are said to be available with the initial release, including bombs, cluster bombs, lasers, and mines.

Features include:

  • 32 single player levels for hours of gamplay
  • Unlimited online multiplayer over WiFi/3G/Edge
  • Loads of weapons and customization options
  • Global online leaderboards with player rankings
  • 3 game play modes: Freeplay, Campaign and Multiplayer (Online) mode

[ Full HD version | Low Bandwidth version ]

We were impressed with the game when we saw it at WWDC, but we'll post full impressions later on today. However, with a free lite version available to try, you may as well give it a go yourself in the meanwhile.

    Looks good but too expensive (too many very good apps out there for $1.99 or .99). Thanks for the lite version though.

    The Online Multiplayer is finally active 24/7 and it is loads of fun, flawless even on EDGE!

    User reviews On Touch Arcade can be found and I'll post my own review after a culmination of 200 online battles (currently 80 wins 20 losses)

    look no further, get the LITE version first and see for yourself: unlock some gear, update some hogs and test your skills online... Its the ultimate challenge--real human competittion...
