From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

   Pigs in Space is a three-in-one 1983 video game developed and published by Atari, Inc. for the Atari 2600. It is based on the recurrent sketch on the then-popular The Muppet Show of the same name. The game was the last in a series of children-friendly games developed by Atari for the Atari 2600. Atari marketed the games as being good for the development of hand/eye co-ordination.
   The game consists of three different Muppets-themed games accessible from a common menu. The first game is a Space Invaders-clone called Chickenvaders in which Captain Link Hogthrob runs along the bottom of the screen firing sausages at egg-dropping chickens, and at Gonzo who occasional flies across the top of the screen in a flying saucer. The second is Pastaroids, a Frogger-clone in which Miss Piggy must dodge flying pasta and meatballs to cross the screen from bottom to top to reach the ship USS Swinetrek. The third is Escape from the Planet of the Gonzoids, in which the player plays as Doctor Strangepork controlling the Swinetrek as it flies through tunnels shooting robots (called Gonzoids) that throw pizzas.
