Pigs In Space Starring Miss Piggy is a game released for the Atari 2600. It is based on the Muppet Show science-fiction comedy skit of the same name.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Pigs In Space consists of three games centering around the theme of the comedy skit. The player can select which of the three games he wishes to play at any time.

Chickenvaders -- Here Commander Link, the captain of the ship Swinetrek, must contend with an armada of alien chickens that descend upon him in a manner similar to Space Invaders. He must blast them with his sausage missiles while avoiding their egg bombs that will turn him into a chicken if he gets hit by one. The character Gonzo poses as the mother ship which the player can destroy for bigger points.

Pastaroids -- Here Miss Piggy as the first officer must safely reach her ship before it departs while watching out for meatball meteors and strings of cosmic spaghetti flying through space. She can use her karate chop to destroy the meteors.

Escape From The Planet Of The Gonzoids -- Here Dr. Strangepork, the science officer, must pilot the Swinetrek through an abandoned pizza mine that's being guarded by robotic Gonzoids, throwing deadly pizzas at your ship. Use your Boomeray weapon to take out the Gonzoids as you safely make your way of escape.
