img_01281Star Hogs [App Store] saw a price drop to $2.99 this morning, and IUGO has plans in the works for two updates, one of which has already been submitted.

We first saw Star Hogs at WWDC, and when we finally got the game in to our hands, it was just as good as we expected.

From our review:

Star Hogs is less of a Worms clone, and more of an evolution of Worms-like turn based combat. The variety of options for ships, 32 single player levels, free play (which is basically just online play but with AI or human opponents sharing the same device), and the potential of online multiplayer makes for a solid title that can easily hold its own amongst the other $4.99 games on the App Store.

Star Hogs Lite [App Store] is also available, and if you ever enjoyed a Worms game in the past, you owe it to yourself to at least give the free version a try.

Only now, instead of $4.99, Star Hogs is $2.99. The update which has already been submitted to the App Store addresses some online game balance issues and fixes a few bugs. The next update coming down the pipes features improved graphics, in-game messaging for multiplayer battles, and an optional purchasable map pack which will bring 32 new campaign levels.

    Yay, not a day too early! It's add a ("big") company would release a game with such sub-par graphics, they look home made.

      Are you being sarcastic? IUGO isn't that big, and I think this game has more polish than 98% of what is in the app store.

      • Cyberdude

        Nope, sorry. Perhaps nog big, but I'm pretty sure they pay someone for doing graphics, and they can surely find someone better.

      I think the graphics are great. You must be one of the idiots that didn't even play the game at all. The terrain are static but the effects and animations are top notch. Well, just goes to show there are dumb ppl everywhere who thinks they know everything. News for you, you are one of these dumb ppl.

    I would LOVE it if this game supported bluetooth local multiplayer. This would be great to play with some friends sitting around....

    This game rocks. The way the campaign meshes in with pvp is just sweet. Starting playing it a couple days ago and am a fan already! Online community has to grow though but even standalone it's fun and interesting. Gfx are cool and so are the sound effects. Recommended to friends.
