    Ok, so we ran a contest and in a few hours, one lucky player (Eric, you were AWESOME) beat our best scores and managed to get to level 25. I never got past level 14 so I was impressed.

    So this time we're making the challenge more interesting.

    In honor of the Super Bowl we're awarding $200 (via Paypal) to the highest score submitted by Super Bowl day (Feb. 1st).

    Just email a screen grab of a game screen (better than Level 25, we know you can do that) to:

    pigs@playscreen.com

    Here's some information on capturing a screen.

    How to Capture a Screen

    Here's the link to the game: http://tinyurl.com/5mgk6z

    Or simply text PIGS to 74415 on your iPhone.

    We will keep everyone informed of the current high score on this blog, on Twitter, and on the touchArcade forum.

    Super Oink Oink!

    The purple pig - hog wild. He explodes in 8 directions instead of just 4.

    I won one of the promo codes, and I feel compelled to comment on this. No, not because I got the game for free, but because it's actually a pretty fun. It's quite a simple concept, that actually has a bit of depth and strategy. It starts out rather easy, but it gets very complicated as you get further and further and you must start plotting out how you plan to feed the pigs with your limited food.

    For 99 cents it's worth checking out.

    Question about the contest. Say that by February 1; no one has reached or passed level 25. Is the contest then canceled or is the $200 given to the person who got to the highest level? I'm on Level 13.

    Gotta say, this is a dollar well spent. It's fun, especially once you get how the game works.
    Best so far: Level 17 with a score of 70930.

    As it has been said, this is NOT a jewel matching game. You know that by now, of course.

    The key is to think what a 'feed' will do. As in, if this pig explodes he will feed those pigs and they will explode, etc.

    You want to conserve feeds. Sometimes a explosion will set off others than can feed a pig more than once, so feeding him to max size may not be needed. Every pig that explodes from another pig generates a new feed.

    You should have more and more feeds as you get to higher levels ... but as you move up the field has younger pigs making it harder.

    I was frankly shocked when players got to 25 in Pigs (and 22 in Mystic Jewels, which is the same game mechanic). I never got that far, but I think if you really PLAN your feeds, you can do this.

    Yeah, thats the type of game mechanic I've been trying to work with.
    Just been too lazy to actually sit there and plan out each level... would take a while ;)
