If you loved Rovio's hit game Angry Birds, and the dozens of sequels that followed it, then the company's newest title might be right up your alley. It's called Bad Piggies and takes place on Piggy Island, where you're tasked with creating "machines that crawl, roll, crash and fly the pigs to the eggs" using 33 different objects. Bad Piggies offers 60 levels now, but Rovio said that it plans to offer free updates in the future.

The Android version of the game, which has a 5-star rating, is free. It's available for $0.99 for the iPhone and $2.99 for the iPad.




September 27 — Espoo, Finland — Rovio Entertainment released its newest game, Bad Piggies, for iOS, Android, Mac, and PC. Told from the pigs' point of view, this innovative game lets fans build amazing machines that crawl, roll, crash, and fly the pigs to the eggs!

"We've never done anything like this," said Petri Järvilehto, EVP of Games. "Where Angry Birds was all about destruction, Bad Piggies is all about the joy of construction. It's not just about getting three stars — in this game, failing is almost as much fun as succeeding!"

The game is set on Piggy Island, where the Bad Piggies are after the eggs again — but as usual, nothing is going according to plan. They need help in creating the ultimate flying machine and steering it safely to their destination.

With more than 60 levels, and free updates coming up, there's hours and hours of pig-crashing, exploding, and flying fun. Fans can unlock an additional 30 levels by getting three stars, and four sandbox levels let them stretch their creativity to the utmost. With 33 objects available to create the ultimate machine, the sky's the limit — if you can navigate around all the obstacles first!

This is the first time the Bad Piggies are protagonists of a game, but it's just the beginning of a series of Bad Piggies related games and other entertainment.

Bad Piggies is available now on iOS, Android, Mac, and PC, with Windows Phone coming soon. For more information, check out BadPiggies.com, or follow Bad Piggies on Facebook or Twitter. Press inquiries may be sent to [email protected].
