Take a bunch of cartoon pigs and stick them on ice with a target at one end of the screen. That is all that Pig Curling entails — there are no brooms nor trying to not fall on your butt as you slide down the ice. Don't think though that simple means bad in any way, it is in fact quite fun.
Pig Curling is made somewhat more complicated as nefarious types add impediments to your curling as the levels get higher. Things like holes in the ice, steel and wood walls, and even bouncy obstacles make your task harder and harder. Evening things out somewhat, there are various types of pigs at your disposal that help. For example, there is pee pig to slow your other pigs down with his yellow streaks, as well as a giant pig to break barriers (if they are breakable).
Advancement is not determined by score, but by how many pigs you get into the circle. Each level require a certain percentage of your total pigs in the points to move on. So, it is possible to get a low score but move on, and in fact it happens frequently. It is possible to get a bulls-eye and still have to repeat the level to advance which seems a bit odd.
In short, this is a very simple game involving using your finger to flick your pig(s) up the screen in an effort to score points. Well at least it's simple until level 10 when it gets really hard all of the sudden.
This is not a session app by any means, but good for a laugh for a wee while if you are in need of some amusement. The cartoon style is rather fun and the game runs well.
Pig Curling is easy to play and hard to master. My only criticism is that it gets too difficult too quickly. A somewhat longer difficulty arc might keep casual players interested a bit longer.
