Bad Piggies

JohnBMmm, delicious eggs. As we've learned from the Angry Birds series, round, legless piggies love nothing more than a good egg. And they'll do anything they can to get their snouts on one! In Rovio's latest physics game Bad Piggies, the tables are turned and you're working to help the pigs get what they want. Instead of slingshots and breakable forts, though, you're building rickety contraptions box by wooden box. It's a little bit of construction, a little bit of action, and a whole lot of crashing. Exactly what you need in a casual mobile game!

Bad PiggiesThe pigs have a plan, but unfortunately that plan was outlined on a map that has been torn to shreds. Collecting each piece going to take some work, but since you're here to help, the piggies won't have too rough of a time. As long as you consider being thrown down a hill into a crate of TNT "not too rough". Each level starts out with a grid and a number of items in your inventory below, things like crates, wheels, propulsion accessories, helium balloons, and so on. Drag objects into the grid and place the pig inside, constructing a roughshod contraption that, with any luck, will survive the terrain ahead and deliver the piggie to the mappie.

Fortunately it's not just up to gravity and luck once you set your contraption in motion. Using various forms of propulsion (shaken soda bottles are our favorite), you can actually exert some control over the movement of the piggie, knocking it back and forth using the controls that appear during action. Where you place these propulsion accessories really matters, and you can performs some really crazy stunts by changing up the construction. Later in the game, this portion of play takes on a much bigger role, so you'll probably have to resist the urge to build a piggie Death Star in favor of a sensible machine that will actually accomplish your goal.

Analysis: Bad Piggies is very different from the Angry Birds series, the only real connection being the artwork and the characters. The game itself is a fair combination of Rovio's previous effort Amazing Alex with some arcade physics thrown in and casual-ified. The puzzle elements of Bad Piggies are quite strong, and even though later levels focus on timing and reflexes, you still have to be able to build a stable contraption before you can pilot it. And even if you fail, the results are usually pretty funny.

Bad PiggiesScoring adds a lot of replay value to Bad Piggies, and instead of being numbers based, it's directly related to the actions you take and the stars you earn. Each level has three goals you can aim for, ranging from simple things like grabbing the map within a certain time to the more complex like not using an apparently vital piece of equipment in your contraption. This intensifies both the action and puzzle elements of the game, and since it's completely optional whether you shoot for perfection or not, Bad Piggies is only as challenging as you want it to be!

Currently, Rovio has included 90 levels in the initial release, with the promise of more listed right there on the level select screen. The difficulty is a very gradual curve, starting with handfuls of almost too-easy stages and ending with massively challenging puzzles that require brains as well as pitch-perfect reflexes, especially if you shoot for the three star goal. If there's any shortcoming to Bad Piggies, it's that the first dozen or two levels are too easy and end up feeling a little repetitive. Stick with it, though, and the meat of the game proves its worth.

Rovio has managed to create something familiar but still unique and engaging. It's massive amounts of fun, too, and you can get into some crazy scrapes with the machines you build out of wooden wheels and makeshift bellows. Plenty of challenge, plenty of personality, and plenty of eggs for all to enjoy!

  • To earn 3 stars on many levels, you may need to play at least 2 times.

  • Some levels though will only require you do design one vehicle and play it.

  • The contraptions in the screenshots for each level achieved a 3-star rating, but there may be more than one design to reach your goal.

  • Each level can have different goals: one will always be to get a piggy across the finish line.

  • The other goals will change to things like: capture a star, finish without cracking up, or to finish within a certain time limit.

  • Keep in mind that stars can sometimes be in deceptive places that will require you to move in an opposite direction, so check them out before you assemble your vehicle.

  • If you need to get the pig to the finish line within a specified time, the time will be shown on the timer icon in the top right corner.

  • Fold the umbrellas and start the wheels.

  • Just before you get to the crest of the hill, turn off the wheels.

  • Once you are airborne, raise the umbrellas so you float to the ground, because you don't want to crash land.

  • When you have safely landed, start the wheels and cross the finish line.

  • Screenshot

Bonus Level IX

  • You can use the same design for both runs you need to make.

  • For one run, you want to use the lower level to capture the time goal.

  • Start your wheels, and when you just start to go up, turn them off so you land on the lower path.

  • Start to stop them along the path so you stay on the lower path, don't crash into the rocks, and still beat the clock.

  • To capture the star, follow the same directions to land on the lower path, and then start and stop your wheels to stay under the first curved upper road.

  • Once you are under that curved upper road, start your wheels and keep them going until you grab the star and cross the finish line.

  • Screenshot

I opened up Angry Birds yesterday on a whim, and there was an ad for this game so I figured what the hey, I love Angry Birds I'll love this game too.

I couldn't have been more wrong, this game is nothing like Angry Birds except for the graphics and characters. I feel like I put a dollar into a paper shredder, sigh.

It's only bad if you WANT it to be like Angry Birds. Novia can't just repeat the same game over and over again! I found this actually better than Angry Birds, probably because I just like building things. It's also really challenging!

  • Keep in mind that the cylinder-type motors can be a green motor that is the weakest, and a turbo-powered one that will send you anywhere.

  • As you progress in the game, you will encounter other devices that will be explained as encountered.

  • Screenshots and tips given are for configurations that worked for us, but other configurations may also achieve the same 3-star results.

Ground Hog Day

Level 1

Level 2

  • Place the 3 wooden boxes with a fan at the left, add the wheels underneath the left and right boxes, and place your piggy in the center box.

  • When you start him up, you will need to keep clicking or tapping on the fan so he will propel down the hill and make contact with the TNT at the bottom.

  • Screenshot

  • If you don't get your 3 stars on the first try, trash your vehicle, and configure him again as shown.

  • Start the fan and send him backwards to get the star and connect with the TNT there.

Level 3

  • See the screenshot for the configuration.

  • Continue, and tap on the fan sufficiently to get to the star on the right, then let him roll back downhill.

  • Screenshot

  • Start the fan and send him backwards to connect with the TNT there.

  • Screenshot

Level 4

  • For this level, all you need is the piggy in the square shown.

  • If you don't get your 3 stars, put him in the lower right square and try again.

  • Screenshot

  • Screenshot

Level 12

  • Screenshot

Bonus Level I

  • This level will require you to make two runs with different vehicles.

  • For your first run, you want to get him to the upper level to get the star.

  • Make your vehicle as shown, start the fan to tip him backwards, and then set off the TNT when the two wheels are on the ground.

  • Screenshot

  • Construct your vehicle as shown and start him off with the fan running so you can wipe out the TNT at the end of the run.

  • Screenshot

Bonus Level II

  • See the screenshot for your vehicle, and start it off with the fan running.

  • Screenshot

Bonus Level III

  • This is a more complicated vehicle with lots of parts.

  • When you get to the second dip, give it a turbo blast to get to the high road to grab the star.

  • Screenshot

Level 13

  • Configure the vehicle as shown, and set off the turbo bottles.

  • When he gets opposite the ledge, hit the TNT.

Level 17

  • You now have umbrellas to work with, and they are great for slowing down your Piggy's decent from high places.

  • You will find when you use them that you need to open and close them at different times in your runs, depending on whether you need to gain speed or slow down.

  • For this run, you want the umbrella open until you get to the end of the run, and then close it so you can capture the star.

  • Screenshot

Level 18

  • You will need to do two runs for this level, so repeatedly tap the right umbrella button to move the vehicle right and off the cliff.

Bonus Level IX
