THQ Wireless has rolled out Pass the Pigs onto Apple's iPhone and iTouch platforms worldwide.
Developed by the company's internal studio Universomo, the mobile game is available in more than 70 countries including the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy and Australia.
Players win points by throwing two model pigs across a casino-style table. The player has points either given or taken away, based on the way the pigs land until 'Pig Out'. This classic mode supports up to four players and includes three alternative scoring methods.
Pass the Pigs for iPhone uses accelerometer technology to give Shake n Roll controls to roll the pigs, with varying power, exactly as one would intuitively roll a pair of dice. Alternatively, pigs can be rolled using touch-screen controls, with simple slide or flick motions.
"The launch of Pass the Pigs marks a new commitment by THQ Wireless to bring casual, mass-market games to the mobile arena," said Adam Comiskey, VP of THQ Wireless. "It's a hugely fun and entertaining game with one button controls and we think fans of casual games will enjoy this quick play format."
