Bad Piggies, a sequel to Angry Birds starring the game’s green pigs, was released today on iOS, Android, and Mac.
Bad Piggies does away with the franchise’s familiar slingshot used to launch birds in favor of all-new mechanics.
“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?” said Rovio CEO Mikael Hed said in a press release. “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.”
In Bad Piggies you’ll use blocks with various functions (an engine, a rotor, wheels, etc.) to build vehicles to “launch” your piggies. Of course there will be a variety of landscape challenges as your piggies must reach a goal with cargo intact.
