Bad Piggies Update Concludes Rise and Swine, Adds Power Ups

Good morning, fellow flingers! And a very happy Monday to each of you! Hopefully you had a relaxing weekend and are ready to start off your week with a fantastic Rovio update, coming this morning via Bad Piggies! As promised, Bad Piggies v1.4.0 is now available for iOS and Android via Google Play, with other platforms coming soon!

This update includes:

  • 30 new levels levels in the Rise and Swine episode, finishing off the episode. As a friendly reminder, don’t forget that you do NOT need to perform all three required objectives in a single run in order to obtain 3-stars on a given level. Our walkthroughs are live so check them out if you need any help!
  • More skulls! Keep your eyes peeled, and our Complete Hidden Skulls Guide is there for you!
  • New Sandbox level. These are very different, requiring you to collect 20 star boxes scattered across the massive level, using as many contraptions and tries as you need. We will be updating our Complete Sandbox Guide soon as well.
  • One new Road Hog Level! Walkthroughs can be found here.
  • New Grappling Hook! This is a super useful item which mounts on the outside of your contraption and is orientable as you see fit. A very useful tip: You can both shoot and retract the hook manually, so if you are getting too much pull, try releasing it!
  • Power Ups! More below.
  • Thirteen new achievements in GameCenter! This is a massive set with plenty of fun.
  • New bugs? Repaired bugs? We have a forum thread and would love to hear from you.

Power Ups

As Rovio said last week, Power Ups have made their way into Bad Piggies. But they are done is a pretty unique way. Most importantly, you don’t have to pay to earn them! Scattered throughout today’s 30-level release all levels (thanks @PJng) are cakes, cupcakes, and other sweets. Collecting the food and finishing the level will add them to your “King Pig inventory”. Feeding King Pig the sweets will periodically and randomly earn you Power Ups!

There are four new Power Ups:

  • Super Glue makes your contraption nearly indestructible. This is a very useful item if you are struggling to avoid a Krak-Snap while speeding around. As an in-app purchase, you can buy 10 for $1.99, 20 for $2.99, 60 for $6.99, or 150 for $17.99.
  • Magnets will pull star boxes and desserts to your contraption, both of which can be very helpful. Magnets cost $1.99 for five, $4.99 for 15, $8.99 for 30, or $19.99 for 100.
  • Turbo Charges doubles the power output of your contraption’s engines! This could lead to some blazing-fast times in Road Hogs levels. You can buy 20 for $1.99, 40 for $2.99, 90 for $5.99, or 150 for $9.99.
  • Super Mechanic Pig automatically builds a 3-star contraption!! This is much more impressive than the normal Mechanic Pig, who builds a 1-star contraption. These are pretty pricy, costing $1.99 for five, $3.99 for 15, $6.99 for 30, or $19.99 for 100.
  • The normal Mechanic Pig has been tweaked to a 1-time purchase for $0.99. This will allow you to summon a 1-star contraption on any level you’d like. As a result of the tweak, any accumulation of (normal) Mechanic Pigs you had have been converted to Super Mechanic Pigs! Woooo!

That’s nice! I wish I could feed the King Pig for Power-Ups when it comes out for PC! :D

This is the most awesome BP update ever!
These 4 power-ups are very useful, and we can use them without any ‘problem’, because there are no SCORES at all.
And The Grappling hook item is also fantastic & useful.
I wonder, the power-ups will available for PC, because we can earn it in the game.
And Did anyone noticed that the BP Title music is replaced with gameplay music ?

On Sandbox is showing collected how many cake, but if return to level selection and enter to same level it reset to 0, and cake collected are not appear, not sure what usage.

I haven9t updated yet but I am thrilled with possibility to earn power ups collecting items for King Pig through game. It would be fun to play them again. I assume that oce collected sweet in level and adding it to King Pig’s inventory couldn’t be regained by replaying same level (would be only logical).

Rank: Sling God with 25745 points

Can replay ALOT. Power ups are not a 1-for-1 trade, so that’s the kicker.

Thanks @amslimfordy, that’s awesome. I guess Rovio find the best way to make bad Piggies replayable. Now it deffinitely IS my favorite games and it always was in top 3.

Is the cakes for feed king pig are available every you play the level or only once each level?

You can also feed in episode and level select screen.

For some reason on my iPhone 4S with IOS 6, in my updates it shows the description for the FIRST Rise and Swine update, and instead of saying “Update” it says “Open” And then it opens my Un-Updated BP. I think I need to toggle a few settings…

@Legosponge2015, I’m having the exact same issue. Still don’t have the new update.

I had the same issue. Turn your iphone on and off and it should work.

My post below clears up how to fix this problem. Double tap home button on phone and close the App Store app by holding it down and then touching the red minus sign. Reopen App Store icon as usual and it should be the update version. Hope this helps. Happy Pigging!

It seemed to fix itself. I may have fixed it without realizing, though.

Also with the super mechanic pig, if you used it once in a level, you can restart and use him again for free in that level, only works with this power-up

By MVNLA2 (@mvnla2)

If anyone doubts that the start conditions vary by each start, Try Road Hogs 8, and see what happens when you try to jump the gap at the top of the first cliff and land with both wheels attached to the roof. Probability of success varies with type and number of engines (I think).

Cakes are not forever in a level!? i started level 2-15, had 3 cakes, collect them, then restart only 2 cakes, again restart only one by the finish. The oter 2 cakes are not coming back

Rank: Sling God with 25745 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

It’s pretty random @josm.

Avatar of JosmRank: Master Slinger with 6245 points
By Josm (@josm)

Yes i notice that, same for the reward you get from king-pig, sometimes you got 2 on a row, and sometimes ater feeding him 5-6 times

By Sven

When you restart a level when you are stil in the level, the cakes you collected will not come back. But when you go back to the level selection screen and restart the level from there, the cakes will be back!

Avatar of JosmRank: Master Slinger with 6245 points
By Josm (@josm)

Not here, neither if i restart the game, as Slim said its totally random..

By Sven

Now I see it! I always thought I saw the same amount of cakes in a level… Slim was right indeed. Thanks for clearing that up!

By Golldd

@amslimfordy, are these PU’s also awarded as daily rewards? Also how many sweets are to be fed to king pig to get one PU?

Rank: Sling God with 25745 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

It’s pretty random. I’ve had a 1-for-1 before, and I’ve had a string of probably 8 feeds and getting nothing.

No daily reward that I can see.

By Golldd

@AMslimfordy, a small note: 1.The cakes are found in all levels but sweets and king pig inventory doesn’t appear unless one opens the first level of rise and swine(no need to play it).
2. This may be a coincidence but I’ve played the first level of GHD like 18 times and each time I had a sweet before the finish line. Even though this is a speculation I think one will always get a sweet in the first level of GHD. I have 21 of them now in total.

Sandbox levels regenerate cakes after all have been collected. (10 in normal sandbox; 40 in FOD)

@AMslimfordy did you notice if you use the super mechanic pig (for example level 2-32) there is a symbol right to the pause button, with an A in it, if you click on that button he gives you another contraption (B) and click again he gives you solution C

Rank: Sling God with 25745 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

For different objectives I think? Hrm….

Avatar of JosmRank: Master Slinger with 6245 points
By Josm (@josm)

Because you cant 3 star the level with 1 contraption in this case i think they add multiple contraptions to get 3 stars in the level

Avatar of JosmRank: Master Slinger with 6245 points
By Josm (@josm)

Thats the case in lvl 32, one contraption to get the pig over the finish-line, one for collecting the star-box and one for completing it in 6 seconds. i dont know if it gives always 3 opportunities even if you can do it with one contraption, i dont have received a lot this power-up.

Btw. i think the change to get an super mechanic pic power up is less than the others

Avatar of JosmRank: Master Slinger with 6245 points
By Josm (@josm)

Tried it in another level (2-29) and again he gives 3 opportunities

For anyone who has used Super Mech Pig – is there a new drawing of him or just the symbol?

i.e. does Super mech have his own sprite?

This happened to me too. I held down the home button and closed the App Store icon then opened it again…the new version appeared and said “update” instead of “open”. The date and version changed as well. Hope this helps.

When you feed the king pig, sometimes the piece of cake contains a file, or another item that causes him to shrink back to original size. Normally with each item you feed him, he increases in size until he’s had enough to give you a power up.

Is anyone else getting a prompt to enter your Apple ID password as the game loads? I’m not sure why it’s appearing, but hitting cancel allows the game to still be played normally.

I’ve never seen an app ask for my password unprompted before, this is weird.

Rank: Boss Hog with 14760 points

@Cal010 — Yeah, happened to me, and I supplied it — Dumb. I think it is so you can do in-app purchases without entering a password? If so evil, even though it’s only me who uses my device.

I was asked as well. When I louded game for the first time after update I was asked for my iTunes password, I thought that I might hit restore purchases button but when it happened again I was confused. Now that I know @mvnla2 had same issue I think it migh be something with iO.S. version bug.

I was asked. It does not, however, make it so that you don’t have to write a password. I accidentally clicked on the large package of Magnets and was prompted to write the password. Thank goodness.

If you have a level with 2 cakes, one somewhere and one by the finish, and if you collect the first one, but you dont react the finish and restart the level, that other cake is gone but will be counted as well if you reach the finish :)

Bad piggies does not work on a galaxy tab2 after the latest android update. Anyone has a solution?

It is working fine here on my galaxy tab2, maybe take a look in the google app store if there is an update or you installed it correct.
Otherwise try restarting your device

I tried installing a new version. It works when I do not restore my savegames, but when I do restore them, the game stops after showing the white Rovio screen.

I know that I am checking in VERRYY late, but just to add the part which I think deserves praise in this update (Besides, of course, new levels and concepts). LOVE THE NEW SONG!!! The new song, played during the King Pig’s throne room, is the perfect blend between Angry Birds and Bad Piggies. Kudos to the composer! Apparently C minor is the theme of Bad Piggies…
