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.

Bad Piggies Rovio Entertainment, Bad Piggies - $0.99

Description

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!

Features
● 60 levels crammed with flying/driving/crashing fun!
● 30 additional puzzles unlocked by three-starring levels!
● Free updates!
● 4 sandbox levels to stretch your creativity!
● Ultra-special, ultra-secret, ultra-difficult sandbox level to unlock by collecting all the skulls!
● 33 objects to create the ultimate machine: motors, wings, fans, bottle rockets, umbrellas, balloons, and much more!

Mechanic Pig
● Need help? This little piggy will build it for you!
● Mechanic pig pre-assembles transport for you!
● All you have to do is pilot it!
● Tweak his design to get all three stars!

Move over Angry Birds: Rovio’s Bad Piggies gets first gameplay trailer [Video] http://www.touchmyapps.com/2012/09/18/move-over-angry-birds-rovios-bad-piggies-gets-first-gameplay-trailer-video/ http://www.touchmyapps.com/2012/09/18/move-over-angry-birds-rovios-bad-piggies-gets-first-gameplay-trailer-video/#comments Tue, 18 Sep 2012 16:52:49 +0000 http://www.touchmyapps.com/?p=69862 Rovio has released the first gameplay trailer of Bad Piggies, their next mobile offering starring not those iconic birds, but the adorable love ’em or hate ’em pigs.

Rovio has released the first gameplay trailer of Bad Piggies, their next mobile offering starring not those iconic birds, but the adorable love ’em or hate ’em pigs. As we all know, Angry Birds is all about destruction; Bad Piggies, however, requires players to build stuff. According to Yahoo Games!:

Bad Piggies takes a page from game maker Rovio’s other recent hit, Amazing Alex, by letting players build curious contraptions for the pigs as they set out to steal more of those delicious eggs. You’ll craft all sorts of shoddy vehicles, from rickety flying machines to creaky jalopies, and then steer your hunk of junk through winding courses as you try to “three-star” the levels.

Here’s a look at the gameplay trailer.

Just from the brief clip, I have to say that I’m even more excited to go hands-on with Piggies than when Angry Birds Space and Amazing Alex were first announced. The game just looks zany enough to be fun and it’s probably time to give those slimy green pigs a shot at glory.

Bad Piggies will release on September 27 for iOS and Android devices, and expect it to invade Windows Phones and PCs as well in the near future. You can hit the official Bad Pigges site, along with the respective Facebook and Twitter pages for the latest info.

Just when you thought you were done with Angry Birds on your iPhone/iPod Touch, Rovio keeps finding ways of sucking you right back in. With an update that got pushed through this morning, the first in the bird-slinging franchise has received 15 new levels in the tropical theme that was introduced in the previous update. In addition, the game now includes the use of power ups, which were first introduced in the Facebook version. Four have initially been brought over and they include:

  • Sling Scope – adds laser precision for targeting unwanted pigs
  • King Sling –  give your birds maximum flinging power
  • Super Seeds – like steroid injections, i’ll supersize your birds
  • Birdquake – shakes the pigs’ defenses to the ground

Thankfully, gamers get to use 20 free power ups right off the bat and each day another will be added to the freebie column. Not to worry though if you feel you’ve become a King Sling addict. Power ups can be purchased via IAPs and they start at $0.99 for a 10 pack, and go as high as $20.99 for 125 power ups. A bit excessive if you ask me, but I suppose die hard fans will consider that a sound investment.

And to put the 1 billion into perpective, the Apple App Store with its 600,000+ apps reached 25 billion downloads back in March. Despite the fact that it does include the Windows, Mac, Android and other platforms, that’s still 4 games with 1/25 of all iOS downloads!

After only 3 days of release, Angry Birds Space can officially be deemed a major hit. Through Twitter, Rovio announced that the latest space-themed Angry Birds game saw 10 million downloads over its initial launch weekend.

10 million Angry Birds Space downloads in less than 3 days! Thanks to our fans, stay tuned for more! #angrybirdsspace

What’s not known at this time is the breakdown between the different platforms, though its probably safe to assume that a large chunk of the downloads are from Android users (it’s free on Google Play, unlike iOS App Store). And with all the hype and publicity surrounding Angry Birds Space, don’t be surprised if the game surpasses the 100 million mark within a few weeks time.

Houston, we have liftoff. Angry Birds, the uber-lucrative gaming property for Rovio (it’s been downloaded over 700 million times across various mobile platforms), will soon be embarking on a journey that’ll take the beloved cast into outer space. From Rovio’s blog:

Angry Birds Space is a completely new game with innovative new gameplay, but with some of the familiar Angry Birds elements that fans already know and love — plus some surprises!

According to Yahoo! Games, Rovio has teamed up with NASA and National Geographic to be their ‘launch partners’ when the game officially releases on March 22nd. With the fourth major installment in the franchise (the last being Angry Birds Rio), Space will let fans sling birds on completely new planets, where there’ll be new gameplay elements like zero gravity, slow-motion trajections, and “lightspeed” destruction. And as part of a coordinated launch effort, Rovio will be simultaneously releasing the mobile game along with other Angry Birds Space offerings in animation, retail and publishing. More details on the game will be unveiled in early March, but in the meantime, you can check out the teaser website and watch the brief trailer below.
