Piggy Boom is an addictive... oh wait. No it isn't. I have had a strange sense of deja-vu when I started playing Piggy Boom. Maybe because it looks and plays similar to Coin Master. Yes, another paper thin theme on top of a senseless system that can be loosely called a game.
Gameplay consists of spending coins to build up your island. Coins come from spinning the fortune wheel, which can also grant other bonuses, such as the opportunity to steal coins from opponents, attack them to destroy one of their buildings, or gain shields which protect you from attacks. You will also unlock a pet which will contribute with a special power. Additionally you can also obtain certain "props" that are needed for all sort of activities, like feeding your pet, or hitting globes off a xmas tree.
There's a fair amount of player interaction in Piggy Boom. Players can chat and befriend one another. They can send gifts and even create wish lists. It's all very friendly in Piggy Boom. Even the attacks don't hurt that much.. unless they're following a revenge, and the attacker can spot your most expensive building.
Technically, Piggy Boom is barely a game. You have rules, you even have opponents (so to speak), but you lack a goal. Yes, the goal is to gather as many stars as you can by developing islands, but in the end, there's no finality to it.
As always with this type of games, at first you spend a lot, gain levels fast and spin that fortune wheel numerous times. But after fifteen or so minutes, you will finally hit the crawl wall. Buildings become too expensive and spin tokens only come by every hour or so.
Piggy Boom, while looking cute, is not a real game. It's more of a cash sucking app disguised as a game. Many find it exciting to spin a fortune wheel and place predetermined "buildings" in predetermined spots. I don't.
