Rovio’s Bad Piggies arrives for iPhone, Mac and Android
Rovio’s next big hit has arrived and there are no birds in sight. Rather, the misunderstood pigs from the Angry Birds franchise star in this innovative puzzle game – Bad Piggies.
The Bad Piggies are after the eggs again — but as usual, nothing is going according to plan! Can you create the ultimate flying machine and steer them safely to their destination? Those tricky pigs have a few objects they can use, but they need your help to turn these into the perfect transportation!
Using materials and tools that are given to you in each level, you must build contraptions and hope that they’ll steer your pigs to the pieces of the maps that when put together, will reveal where the precious eggs are hidden. The 3 star system is back but this time, you’ll actually have to play through some of the levels multiple times as stars are based on meeting various objectives, like getting to the maps before X number of seconds, picking up a star or not using a particular item when building your ride. The whole idea of trial and error (and of course, using that thing between your ears) is plain addictive and you’ll want to keep coming back to try out new modifications.
The game currently has 60 levels for you to build through, and 30 more are unlocked once you’ve scored 3 stars in every level. And like the Angry Bird games, expect new levels and content to make their way via future updates.
Strangely enough, the game isn’t optimized for the iPhone 5 yet, so expect to play it in letterbox mode on the newest iDevice. Bad Piggies goes for $0.99 on the iPhone/iPod Touch and $2.99 for the iPad. It’s also available on the Mac and Android and will be coming soon to the Windows platform.
With more than 60 levels, and free updates coming up, you have hours and hours of pig-crashing, exploding, and flying fun! Get three stars on every level to unlock 30 more puzzles! HINT: Sometimes you need to play the level several times to achieve all the objectives — try building a new device or steering in a different way to earn all the stars!
