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.

Why did you erased my comment on the post of “Bad Piggies preparing to retaliate against the Angry Birds: Rovio teasing new game.”?? I posted that Yahoo! Games revealed the video and you erased it!!

Well, off topic of the comments, I’m worried because the cost of the app, I’m out of money!! Also I’m still waiting for Amazing Alex for Mac .

it will possibly be $0.99 for mobile, $2.99 for HD, then $4.95 for PC and MAC.

In the video says “iOS, Android, PC, Mac” but the website says “iOS, Android and Mac, also coming to the Win8, WinMobile and PC versions” but I think not exactly September 27.

Per Rovio:

@BadPiggies: @iamMighty76 Yup, @AMslimfordy is right. The plan is to go with iOS, Android & Mac first, but rest should follow soon after!

No. iOS, Android & Mac on 9/27, PC and WinPhone should follow soon after!

That’s what AMslimfordy and Rovio have already sayed.

It looks awesome!!! It’s not the same gameplay as Amazing Alex, it’s much cooler!!! I can’t wait!!! I’m going to buy it!!! Very cool idea Rovio!!!

Yup
More better than Amazing Alex. Expectially when you can build your own vehicle :D
Maybe the game should called “Amazing Piggies” XD

I REALLY DON’T hope that this game will take to much attention from angry birds, and Rovio Soon will launch the last surf and turf ABO and the last red planet levels for angry birds space. But that doesn’t change the fact that i seriously can’t wait for this game!!!

I don’t tend to think that releases of new games means the end for updates for current ones. As proof, I cite AB itself. The intro of Seasons, Rio and Space certainly didn’t spell the end of ABo, else there would have been far fewer levels within that game than those that currently exist.

So, while I understand an undercurrent of pessimism, I don’t share it.

Rank: Sling God with 28135 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

I believe these are separate divisions of Rovio. i.e., the developers who create levels for Bad Piggies are don’t the same developers for Angry Birds.

Rank: Master Slinger with 7205 points
By TruckDriver (@truckdriver)

Yeah, the corporate team concept, wherein each app has it’s own team of developers, graphics/sound people, and so forth. Makes sense to me.

I didn’t Think on that. Now lets see What will be best:

1. Angry Birds
2. Amazing Alex
3. Bad Piggies

In my opinion, it looks better than Amazing Alex. Possibly because I like to create my own “vechicles” to make it through the level. This game reminds me of Turbo Grannies.

So Bad Piggies is more of an arcade-style game, not a skill-based game like AB or AA, even though BP does require some thinking! Also, love the song!

This looks pretty promising! It looks like it will have a lot more depth than Angry Birds. Hope it gets to PC quickly!

Looks very entertaining. Hope it will work with iOS4. I suppose, just like with previous games, system requirements won’t be known until the day of release.

Probably not, but it seems Bad Piggies will be on iOS6. Probably gonna update for the brand new wide screen.

Rank: Sling God with 28135 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

I don’t think it will run 16:9 initially. Rovio has said that Angry Birds will eventually run 16:9 but not too soon.

Som apps in the appstore are updated now and say “improved for iOS 6″. Do they mean “improved for iPhone 5″ (bigger screen)? Or what other improvements will iOS 6 bring?

Rank: Sling God with 28135 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

iOS 6 is out now (just came out an hour-ish ago). In general, apps need to add compatibility support for new OSs, since things behind the scene change. Other options are, for example, Facebook integration for sharing.

Perhaps they also mean iPhone 5 support, but that’s a bit nontrivial as well, I think. Regular apps will run with the blank space for now, but yes, most devs will update their app to check if the resolution is 3:2 or 16:9 and display accordingly.

Yes, this looks like a lot of fun. I think I will let my kids beta test it though before I go all in. I spent a lot on Amazing Alex on all of our devices, and it never gets played anymore.

I agree Burb – I don’t think AAlex had a lot of staying power. I’m worried that Bad Piggies may end up being the same way. Too bad there’s not more of a tie to Angry Birds.

Does anybody know how will game be controled? It looks like games where player have to tilt device to collect items and get to finish.

Can we still hope for an AB update this week, to get more people active playing Rovio games?
@cosmo2503. I don’t think iPads are tilt sensitive in the same way as iPhones, so I don’t think it will be controlled by tilt.

I also hope that update for an ABO would be this week. It’s the end of summer and time to end summer game SAT.
I hate tilt controled games on iPad that’s way I play them on phone.

This is not accurate. The app will eventually arrive for PC, but it will NOT launch on 27 September.

Best game!But can it release on Android Gingerbread?

Profile photo of kai92Rank: Master Slinger with 6885 points

I think it will compatible for GB because most of Android users still using GB, not everyone using ICS or JB.

I think it’ll compatible for android 1.6 or above, like AB

ABSpace requires Android 1.6 and above but Amazing Alex requires 2.1 and above.

I will assume Bad Piggies will also require Android 2.1 and above.
