Bad Piggies Gameplay Revealed

This just in! The Pigs CAN fly!

Yahoo Games nabbed an exclusive first look at Bad Piggies. After teasing us for weeks with images and short video clips (check out Hogwatch), Rovio has finally revealed some actual gameplay.

While Bad Piggies borrows features from Amazing Alex and Angry Birds, it definitely looks like it will offer very unique gameplay. Players start levels by constructing a vehicle on a grid, which you’ll use to try and steal the Birds’ eggs. We all know the Pigs aren’t the best engineers, so expect your vehicle to be held together by duct tape, snot, bird beaks, and broken screws. There are “millions of combinations”, so what you can create seems as endless as your imagination. Construct everything from cars to helicopters to planes (if you want to call them that). Keep in mind each level has certain objectives, so what you build should help the Pigs accomplish those goals, which will in turn earn you those coveted stars.

What we think we know so far:

  • Create: Build contraptions with all sorts of engine parts: propellers, air pumps, coils, fans, and more.
  • Controls: Different parts produce different controls, which you’ll use to steer your vehicle through unimaginable mazes
  • Challenges: There seems to be various time and objective based challenges.
  • Solutions: At 0:47 in the video we see a light bulb icon similar to the one in Amazing Alex. This likely means you’ll have the ability to share solutions. There also might be the ability to search solutions.
  • New Music: An amazing new theme song. It’s similar to Angry Birds, but unique in its own way. I love it.

What we don’t know yet, or are unclear on:

  • The cost and OS requirements have not been announced yet. For price, a pretty good guess is $0.99 USD for mobile, $2.99 for HD, and $4.95 for Mac (and PC later on).
  • We don’t know if the ability to share solutions will be iOS only via Game Center or cross-platform. Regardless, we will create walkthroughs of “our” solutions.
  • How will parts be chosen and configured? We assume you will start each level with a set of parts, which you can then drop into the grid wherever you want. We will see how open-ended this is and what restrictions are put in place.
  • Will we see some secret — Golden Egg like — Easter eggs? Hope so!
  • It’s still unclear how many levels and episodes there will be at launch.

    Well, but I’ll be neutral. Sometimes with the Birds, Sometimes with the Pigs. I don’t want to disappoint the Birds.

    hey,i get it!all this time on the intro of every game made by rovio on description,that’s why it said “bad piggies”!

    Not quite. “Bad Piggies” was the copyrighted name of the pigs in Angry Birds. That’s why it appears on the splash screen.

    Did anybody notice the shape of the island? ;)

    yes, very ‘pig’ shaped, even has the nose

    Which begs the question, was it the Pigs’ island first and the Birds are the intruders on the island?

    Rank: Master Slinger with 6950 points
    By Angryguy (@angryperson)

    that’s a great question! but i’m not sure that the same island from the AB games, it looks a little different

    Profile photo of DoritoRank: Champion with 3420 points
    By Dorito (@dorito)

    I don’t think this is the same island, or else we’d see the birds watching them. ^-^ Also, it seems like the AB worlds are mainly flat, while this island is crazy steep.

    According to the video,it seem it will have 3 episode :

    1. Ground hog day
    2. When pigs fly
    3. The sandbox (bonus episode that give players a feature to make their very own vehicle with lot of materials and bigger grid :D)

    Yeah, but the Rovio developer said it!

    Rank: Sling God with 30075 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    The developer said this too, along with many other Rovio employees. People misspeak. I’ve said 3 × 3 = 6 before accidentally, but it doesn’t make it true.

    well i guess it will be better than Amazing alex

    The game play looks great. The backgrounds and the play screens are forever changing. Create a device and then use it. And why not have pigs fly. Another creative idea and concept spin off from the great themes of Angry Bird. Will be glad to pay for the game. Nice work Rovio to keep us entertained.

    The media can make anything look negative. Check out this article from the Chicago Tribune http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/technology/chi-angry-birds-maker-hopes-bad-piggies-will-help-it-fly-again-20120926,0,4165148.story It makes it sound as if Rovio is not a strong company. All of us would probably like to have one-tenth of the sucess Rovio has had. Judging from the previews I have seen of Bad Piggies, I don’t think anyone will be disappointed and it will remain in top 10 games for quite awhile.

    it’s not a one hit wonder, it has 4 AB games, many web games, not to mention AA, the reporters need to do more research before they publish

    They manipulate the facts to fit their story, instead of printing the truth. I know it is just games, but they tend to do that with everything. I hope Bad Piggies make them eat their words!!!
