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.
Tilt (Apr, 1984)
Bref, trois classiques en un pour une cartouche sans grande innovation : Atari nous a habitués à mieux...
Woodgrain Wonderland (Sep 11, 2017)
Pigs in Space works great as a showcase of how the Atari 2600 could be used to capture the spirit of a franchise and I can see it as a unique collectable among crossover Muppets/video game fans. As a fun game, however, it comes up lacking.
The Video Game Critic (Jan 22, 2012)
As a marginal collection of uninspired mini-games, I'm afraid that Pigs In Space is just one rotating Gonzo head away from complete failure.
