Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated

One thing HOGGY has going for it is a wonderful nostalgia factor. It truly feels like something that would have appeared on the old Super Nintendo game system 20 years ago (Hoggy even sort of resembles '80s game hero Kirby) -- except that it also has fantastic tap-and-tilt controls that make playing on your mobile device a real delight. Any fans of retro-style video games should consider Hoggy a real treasure.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
