Piggy is a graphical dice game, for 1 to 4 human players (and can use one or two joysticks). It's a game of chance, using 2 rolled dice, and your goal is to go all the way to the right hand side of the screen first. It is loosely based on the 2 die Pig Dice dice game, although the rules are a little bit different. The player's first roll is the number he/she has to avoid from then on in their current round. Moving the joystick before clicking the button can allow one to skip to the next player, or continue rolling until that first number is rolled (which sets the player back to the beginning) or wins the game. From the looks of the graphics, it is either originally written in Extended BASIC, or at least calls some Extended BASIC graphics routines.
