PigBang is a mobile action MOBA with an unfortunate name

    
22

Is PigBang a good name for a game? If it’s an action MOBA that’s chock-full of swine, then perhaps it’s applicable, but probably not ideal. But far be it from us to judge!

So what is this new title? PigBang is a mobile MOBA that’s eschewing touch controls for a twin-stick shooter approach. Players will lead their team of pig soldiers to victory (or defeat) by using virtual joysticks on both sides of a touch screen. In addition to running and gunning, players can use special abilities, construct towers, and summon minions for their cause.

PigBang certainly does have a colorful art design and some confidence behind it. The title is currently in beta and will launch on both iOS and Android devices. Look past the name to evaluate the trailer after the jump.

ok…. but why would I play this as opposed to other moba’s?  A game of that kind of complexity takes time to practice and learn, so what do they offer that’s unique enough for me to toss away all the learning I’ve done in other games to get good at theirs?

I want to believe this wasn’t on purpose…but something tells me that this was carefully planned to make the game stick out in not only the saturated mobile market, but the MOBA market as well.

I wouldn’t have clicked this if not for the horrible name.

ulziel Tongle Pretty sure it’s that it implies you’re a pig fucker…like David Cameron. I don’t think many people are looking at this game name as something related to police shooting.

Robert80 ulziel Tongle  Yes, “banging” is a euphemism for screwing.  Which, come to think of it, is a euphemism for copulation.  So, it’s game about sexual activity with a pig. See Karl, above.

They should have thrown a couple of thousand dollars at a decent namer, who undoubtedly would have attempted to convince them that while both Pig and Bang are good words, they never, ever should be conjoined.
