Hoggy 2 Guide: 6 Tips, Cheats & Tricks to Complete More Levels

It’s not every day you find a cute, puzzles-filled game that can keep you glued to the screen of your smartphone screen for hours, and yet be short and simple enough to play between short gaps. Hoggy 2, the much-anticipated sequel to the popular hit of 2010, Hoggy, promises just that.

Hoggy 2 has a simple premise; you take the control of Hoggy and Hogatha, two adorable little characters made of a purple or pink slime, depending on your character. The story starts off with your slime characters hanging out with their two little kids when suddenly a space ship (the Moon Men) appears from the sky and take away their children. During this, Hoggy and Hogatha fall through the ground and find themselves at the bottom of a deep pit.

Now, all you have to do is make your way to the Moon Men and rescue your children, opening door after door using a set of keys. Your slimy character, Hoggy or Hogatha, whichever you choose, can only move sideways or jump and stick to the ceiling. Using this simple level of sticky movement, you have to solve unique and hand-crafted puzzles and find a way to eat all the fruits in a level (jar), and then move on to the next level.

Hoggy 2’s level selector is intuitively-designed to act as a part of the game itself. You can switch between Hoggy and Hogatha any time by going to the start of the game. You can enter any level that is not locked behind a door by sliding through a tunnel, shaped just like the green tunnel in the Mario games. Completing a level gets you one more key and each key brings you closer to your goal. As you progress forwards, you will face doors blocking your way and each door will require a specified number of keys to open. The game will pit you against crazy monsters and weird obstacles as you make your way to the moon by completing over two hundred levels.

While earlier levels might seem simple and easy to solve with simple-to-beat monsters, levels will get more and more complex and you will find yourself experimenting with different solutions to solve a level. Here are a few tips and tricks you can use to help you get through this game,

1. Every Tool Has A Purpose

Know that every tool that is placed inside a level is there for a purpose. There is (almost) never a tool that is placed without any purpose at all. Every tool is basically a step you need to take to make sure that you collect all the fruits in the level. So if you can’t figure out the solution to a level, first look at the tools you haven’t used yet.

For example, if there is an “8-ball” somewhere or a “Nut” your Hoggy/Hogatha can eat, there will be a block you will need to destroy by using either of the tools or an enemy you might have to kill. Sometimes, you may even have to time it correctly to progress further. Similarly, if there is dripping water, it is very likely that it is going to be used to kill the firey-insect crawling through the level.

2. Using Your Enemies

Unlike many other games, enemies in Hoggy 2 aren’t just there to thwart your progress or make it harder for you. In fact, the game employs an interesting technique by making you use your enemies to your advantage. Be it clearing a pathway or using one enemy to kill off other monsters, there are a lot of interesting ways you will be using your enemies.

Don’t kill any enemy before thinking about what your next step will be. There are certain levels that can’t be solved without using an enemy in this way.

3. There’s Only One Way To Beat A Level

Playing any game means that there will obviously be a way to beat it. But, in Hoggy 2, there may be only one way to solve a level most of the time. So you need to think hard and straight to figure out what that particular way is. The levels themselves aren’t that big, nor are they time-consuming or hard enough to really test your brain. If you can figure out the technique quick enough, you can easily complete a level in barely a couple of minutes.

4. Keep Experimenting

If you can’t figure out what the technique is. Just wing it and try any way possible. Fortunately, the game lets you restart any level any number of times you want, so if you get stuck, all you need to do is pause the game and hit the restart “Jar” button and then go at it again from the start.

Kill an enemy, eat a nut and break a box. Change the sequence of the steps you are taken. Do everything and anything you think will work. Got stuck? Restart! You’ll get the hang of it.

5. Stuck On A Level? Move On

Once you have unlocked a few doors, the game will open up and let you choose the order in which you tackle a certain level. If you get stuck on a level and can’t figure out a way to solve it, just move on and go have a go at some other one. There will be more days you will be able to open once you have enough keys. You may have to come back and do it again at a much later time but until then, you can try your luck at everything else.

Maybe, you’ll learn a new technique that will help you solve it later. Don’t just give up and restrict yourself from progressing further.

6. Creating Your Own Levels

This is more of a fun fact rather than a tip, but once you have complete the game, you will be able to join the online Hoggy 2 community and play user-designed levels. Moreover, you will also be able to design your very own levels which can be played by other players online.

That’s all you need to know to succeed in Hoggy 2. In case you know additional tips or tricks for the game, don’t hesitate to leave us a message in the comment area below!
