Bad Piggies

Available on iOS, Android, Mac, Windows (Rovio)


The tables have turned on the Angry Birds---now it’s time for those bizarre green pigs to hog the spotlight (see what I did there?). And it turns out that the egg-stealing bad guys can star in their own game no problem. This time, instead of flinging, you’ll be building. Each level has you creating different vehicles for your rotund passengers as you attempt to reach the end goal. Perhaps the best part of this game is that it uses the great physics-based engine Angry Birds is known for while changing up the formula into more of a simulation. If one type of vehicle construction doesn’t work, just move the parts around---there’s a lot of trial and error. This is perhaps Rovio’s best and most innovative title since changing it all with the original Angry Birds. It allows players to use their own creativity rather than forcing them to solve a puzzle the way the designers envisioned. Great for casual and hardcore gamers alike.
