Talk about making a silk cartridge out of a sow's ear! Atari and Jim Henson have pooled their not inconsiderable talents to come up with a VCS cartridge that not only lampoons some of the most familiar space scenarios by using the famed Muppet Show characters, but actually offers a top-notch challenge to novices and experts alike.
Atari HQ (2002)
While none of the sub-games is mind-boggingly original or overwhelmingly addicting, it's a decent compilation when they're thrown together in one cartridge. Pigs In Space is one of the better attempts at bringing younger players into the VCS fold, and my little nephew's hours of enjoyment playing this game is the final -- and most important -- proof of that.
TeleMatch (Dec, 1983)
Wer dieses Spiel kauft, ohne es gespielt oder gesehen zu haben, wer sich darauf verläßt, daß Atari sich nicht selbst kopiert, der ist um sein Geld gebracht worden, wenn er Space Invaders bereits besitzen oder besessen haben sollte. Da kann man auch nicht mit dem Argument kommen, es sei halt ein wenig lustiger, wenn ein Schweinchen statt einer Kanone schießt usw., usw.; mehr über Pigs in Space zu schreiben, lehne ich verärgert ab.
The Video Game Critic (Jan 26, 2005)
Pigs in Space certainly looks polished and incorporates some clever sound effects, but in terms of gameplay it's a complete dud. Its lack of imagination is matched by its lack of entertainment value.
