Pigsty – Animals on the Loose | Crazy Farm App for the Whole Family!
✔ iPad + iPhone ✔ Android ✔ Kindle Fire | Kids App for ages 6+ years
“Pigsty – Animals on the loose” is the name of the brand new iPad & iPhone kids game by Ravensburger digital and takes kids to a rather crazy farm, where a naughty tornado caused havoc: All animals have been swirled around and the kids’ job is to take care of it all. How the funny Pigsty game is being played and whether we’re fond of it, can be read in our review below.
The game is being played from a bird’s-eye perspective, which shows the farm and it’s residents from above. Little pigs, sheep, cows and chickens scuttle around in each level and need to be caught, fenced and grouped properly. A large fence surrounds the whole playing field and can be gradually narrowed down via straight finger swipes, until the animals are separated into their own proper target zones.
Correct timing is all
Whilst the first few levels are rather easy and are meant to serve as a tutorial, it does actually get quite challenging in the higher levels and definitely attracts older players too. You need to keep an eye on all of the animals, as the fence construction gets interrupted, if animals have not yet touched the finished fencing area. The correct timing is therefore important for finishing the levels, where sometimes 5 or even more animals run around at the same time and need to be separated from one another.
Various strategies lead to success
Even if the levels seem to look the same at first, kids need to continuously adjust their tactic, especially if they are aiming for a final 3 star rating. Various target zones and new game elements provide for plenty of alternation and make the levels more challenging. We therefore come across animals such as…
* Animals, that only run off after they’ve been poked by another animal
* Obstacles, that need to be jumped over with the help of ramps
* Huge Monster-truck tires, on which the animals bounce off
Free + In App Purchase
The Pigsty app can be downloaded for free on the Apple App Store and offers a range of 20 free levels, with which you can start off with really well. If you like the app, you can unlock the full version with an overall of 70 levels via optional in-app purchase for $ 1.99 and Ravensburger have of course thought of adding a child-lock, that protects the in-app purchase.

Well i think i’m going off my rocker – the levels are not as easy as you would think at first and that’s good! Pigsty by Ravensburger is a really fun children game, which can by all means be played by adult casual gamers too, the suggested age recommendation of the App Store of 6-8 years, is therefore best understood as a beginner age.

Tip: By shaking the iPad or iPhone, you shoo the animals and get to hunt them even faster across the screen. A funny idea, as we think.
