Bad Piggies is one of Rovio’s more recent titles that has gotten some really great reviews as of late. As you may have previously thought, Bad Piggies is by no means an Angry Birds clone. In fact, it is completely the opposite. While you are playing the game from the pigs point of view, the goal of the game is to build a proper “airplane” or vehicle that can get you from Point A to Point B. It’s a great concept, and has been met with some very positive reviews on Google Play, and other websites like IGN. It’s definitely a very loved game.
Now, I really like how they kept the cartoon-ish Disney-ish art style to the game. It’s something that Rovio has always done well with and is an overall enjoyable graphical style. I especially love the High Definition version of the game on the tablet, it is simply beautiful. It’s sharper, more defined, and you can definitely tell a difference between the regular version and the HD version of Bad Piggies. I should also mention that the environments in the game are very well designed, as opposed to what you would regularly see in Angry Birds or Amazing Alex. If you’ve ever played the game World of Warcraft: Catacylsm, you’ll notice how that game was supposed to be very graphically advanced compared to the previous title. After the launch of Mists of Pandaria, the expansion, the graphics look much more beautiful. What I’m getting at is the fact the every time Rovio releases a new game, the graphical powers get even better. You don’t see that with every game company, so props to Rovio with this.
In Bad Piggies, you have to build a vehicle to try and get from point A to point B. During that process you can earn up to 3 stars. Stars are handled differently in the Bad Piggies though. Basically what happens is, there are three challenges to get three stars. The first being the objective to get to point B. After that, the other two challenges vary depending on what level you are on.
Overall, Bad Piggies is a fantastic game from Rovio, and probably their best one yet. One of the best parts of it all is that the game is entirely free, including the HD version of Bad Piggies. It’s awesome, and is entirely worth your time.
Currently, Bad Piggies is available for iOS and also the Android platform. I can only imagine what the HD version of the game looks like on a Retina display iPad. I’m really happy that Rovio was able to produce this title. I think that the community surrounding Angry Birds will really like the pig’s point of view, as it is very comical and the opposite of what you would expect from a regular Angry Birds game. If you’d like to download Bad Piggies, just head on over to Google Play or the iTunes store to give it a download.
