Angry Birds spin-off – what you need to know

In the world of mobile gaming, there is one undisputed king – Angry Birds. This simple yet highly addictive game has taken over the world in recent years.

With a simple premise, even simpler gameplay, and some great characters, Angry Birds was an instant hit with smartphone users the world over.

But Rovio, the Finnish developer behind the Birds, wasn’t done with just one title. It released more Angry Birds installments, each one more epic and more addictive than the last.

We’ve had Angry Birds Seasons, Angry Birds Rio and, probably the best of the lot, the excellent Angry Birds Space.

But Rovio isn’t done there, not by a long shot. It has just launched Bad Piggies, a brilliant new take on the Angry Birds format. So what do you need to know about this latest title?

Bad Piggies gameplay

As you may have guessed, in Bad Piggies you play those pesky pigs trying to avoid the disgruntled flying beats at all costs.

Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio said:

“There’s a lot of empathy towards the lovable enemies from the Angry Birds games, and we’ve been constantly asked: what about the pigs’ side of the story,”

“Bad Piggies gives you the chance to play as the second-most-loved characters in the Angry Birds universe, and explore this rich world through their green eyes.”

The focus here is on building, with the pigs building all manner of vehicles and contraptions as they hunt for those tasty eggs.

Bad Piggies launched

After weeks and months of waiting, Bad Piggies is now finally available for download on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.

On the App Store you can pick up Bad Piggies for 69p for the iPhone version or £1.99 for the iPad version – with retina display visuals for the new iPad. On Google Play Bad Piggies is available for free, yet it is supported by in-game adverts.

With Amazing Alex, Rovio’s other diversion from Angry Birds, not able to match the Birds’ success, do the Piggies have what it takes?
