Even though the concept of Angry Birds made me uncomfortable at first – trying to hurt or injure pigs (who I like in real life) with birds (who I despise in real life) didn’t sound like fun – after this game, I definitely want to shoot birds, or anything, at the pigs.
Bad Piggies is a new game from Finnish Rovio Entertainment, the makers of Angry Birds (Angry Birds, Angry Birds Space, Angry Birds Seasons, Angry Birds Rio, Angry Birds Magic, Angry Birds Southern Murder Mystery… okay that last one was to see if you were paying attention). These are based on the (presumably) centuries-old battle between hog and air-rat, and which I like to pretend is for world domination instead of bird eggs… it’s more interesting that way. This time, however, you’re playing as the pigs, and those petulant swine have a score to settle. (more…)
The green menaces from Rovio’s Angry Birds franchise are finally getting their own title, Bad Piggies. Described as “The Piggest Game Ever,” the publisher has launched a new trailer showing how the mechanics of the game work. While it still maintains the Angry Birds style, the game comes across as more of a mash-up of World of Goo and LittleBigPlanet. Players must construct vehicles for both land and air (pigs can fly, but cannot swim apparently) that will be able to navigate the topsy-turvy levels without killing the Piggies navigating inside.
bad Piggies is set for release on iOS, Mac and Android on September 27th, and soon after on Windows Phone, and PC.
