Many of you are already wondering whether we need another mobile MOBA after the latest deluge of MOBAs hoping to draw substantial player bases in order to survive. Well, the trailer for the upcoming MOBA PigBang starts by pretty much answering that same question and proceeds to claim that it stands out from the rest of the genre for its controls and moves. You control your characters through a twin-stick control system that, personally, I find much more preferable than touch-based control systems partly because I'm lazy and don't want to move my fingers around but also because I find my fingers block the screen, not ideal when you're playing fast-paced games.

As you can see from the trailer, this is a very trigger-happy MOBA that departs to a degree from other games of the genre. There are still ability timers, but at least the primary shooting seems to be much more frantic than most other MOBAs. Apparently, in PigBang you can build towers and summon support units, and you can customize your characters through various equipment and talent options. We'll see how different the game ends up being, but from what I can see so far, I appreciate its speed and ferocity. As for the rest of the features, we'll have to play it and see. If this looks interesting to you, you can go here and apply for the beta.

    Hmm... This is the closest I've seen to my preferred MOBA from the dawn of them as Warcraft III custom maps: Battle Tanks. Quite different still, but hmm...

    Looks and sounds well worth a shot, not sure about that craft machine though

    I've always enjoyed twin-stick shooters on iOS, all the way back to the classic Solomon's Keep (is there any progress made on the sequel?), so this is definitely intriguing.

    the developers better not remove the game from the app store after releasing it

    Ace of Arenas already has Twin Stick Controls, its nothing new for a Mobile Game..

    • Aaron Sullivan

      This seems quite a bit more like a twin stick shooter with your primary weapon firing all the time unlike the implementation in Ace of Arenas which is about buttons with swiping to select targets.

        I was just referring to the type of control not the added gameplay mechanics. When it comes to that, PigBang doesn't reinvent the wheel
