Picture
    War Hogs is a platform shooter in the style of Metal Slug/Contra.  You play as one of the four Hogs, each with a unique weapon, blasting through enemy soldiers and machines.
    This demo is one full level broken into several parts.  It includes one miniboss (2 variations) and a main boss.  There are roughly a dozen enemies to destroy, and different ways to reach pickups.

    The game currently supports 1 Player and 2 Player Co-op modes but will eventually have a Versus mode as well.  The object of the game is to destroy as many enemies as possible, collect coins to upgrade your weapons, and defeat the bosses at the end of every level.  There are three difficulty modes to choose from depending on your level of experience.  When the game is complete, beating the game on different difficulties will unlock special features.  Currently, the only reward for upping the difficulty is a score bonus.

    It is advised you change the control scheme the first time you play, especially when playing Co-op mode.  The game supports keyboard and gamepad controls which can both be customized in the Options menu.
