    About Aberdeen Haggis Game

    Use the mouse of your computer to move and raise or lower the hammer to give the haggis a whack. Aim to hit the angry bad looking ones who are coloured red. Hit this and he will sound a noise.

    Try and avoid hitting the friendly tartan bonnet clad ones or he will give a wee squeak and take a point off your score.

    Variations include splat the haggis and haggis hunting game.

    There is a mute button on the left of it if you really do not like the bagpipe music (are you mad!!). This does turn off the sound effects though.

    Disclaimer - None were harmed in the making of it and will be released back into the wild after the haggis whacking season - just in time for the haggis hunting season!

    We love haggi and ask you not to go out into the Scottish countryside wacking any friendly animals. If you do go though you might find our haggis recipe at our other website at
