Android App Pick - Bad Piggies

Print

Application: Bad Piggies

Bad pigs, bad pigs, what'cha gonna do, what'cha gonna do when they escape on you?  No this isn't a C.O.P.S TV app or a remake of Bad Boys - it's a rather non-realistic game this week, but it's a lot of fun.  Bad Piggies is made by Rovio who have been made famouse with Angry Birds.  While waiting for Thanksgiving turkey to be ready up here in Canada we’re busy flying, driving and rolling bacon to the finish line!  Yes, I did say fly.  As the saying goes, “when pigs can fly” and they certainly do in this game.  Playing Bad Piggies without the birds being in their way is an interesting and puzzling game of physics as they roll, drive, fly and oink their way through the levels.

Just like Angry Birds it starts out with a comic story giving you an idea what is to come and what the point of the game is.  In each level, you get supplies to build some sort of moving contraption or vehicle that will move the pig or pigs along a path that can be big and windy or a simple straightforward hill that leads to a piece of a map.  The pigs are trying to collect pieces of a map to get to the Angry Birds eggs.  Along your journey, you're able to collect stars in crates that will help you get you more stars at the end of the trail in each level.

There are times I never have big success with the stars; instead I just tend to find the best way to the finish line! “Sometimes a lazy person can find the easiest way to get the job done!”  On a side note, you are timed, and the faster you are, the more stars and points you get when you reach the finish line.

Try and make some bacon fly over here!
