Bad Piggies Flight in the Night Update Now Available!

Less than one month after the initial release of Bad Piggies, Rovio has graced us with the app’s first update. The update, v1.1.0, adds a new episode called Flight in the Night as well as some other twists, which we will detail below. It’s now available for download for iOS, Mac, PC, and Android via Google Play and the Amazon Appstore, with other platforms coming soon. If you are new to Bad Piggies, be sure to check out our original release post, which includes a lot of information about gameplay and a great tutorial video done by us.

This update includes:

  • 15 new levels with 30 more coming soon. Like its predecessors, the first chapter of Flight in the Night includes 12 “normal” levels and 3 “bonus” levels. Remember 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. Flight in the Night walkthroughs are live if you need help.
  • More skulls!. Three new skulls are scattered across the 15 levels in this update. If you need help finding them, our Complete Hidden Skulls Guide has been updated!
  • One New Sandbox level with another coming soon. 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.
  • Field of Dreams Sandbox, which we have a bunch more details on below.
  • New objective that requires you to get the egg and pig across the finish line.
  • Screenshot icon that when tapped takes a screenshot of the level and saves it your camera role. No word on whether or not this will be available on all platforms. Appears to be iOS only at this point.
  • Fun fact! Zoom out on level 3-2 and scroll up and you’ll see a red and blue bird sleeping ever so soundly. The birds are making their way into Bad Piggies! They also appear in a few other levels?
  • No New Game Center Achievements! However, if you’re curious about the previous achievements check out our exhaustive list.
  • iPhone 5 optimization!
  • New bugs? Repaired bugs? We have a forum thread and would love to hear from you.

Fields of Dreams Sandbox

New “Field of Dreams” Sandbox level that is available for $2.99 as an In-App Purchase for iOS and Google Play. It is now available for Mac & PC as well, and at no additional cost! This level is massive and includes 40 stars, not 20. It also includes a bunch of extra parts, including: V8 Engines, new wings, rockets, ropes, and more. Per the app,

“Unlock the largest sandbox ever. Vast selection of bonus gadgets! Challenging new stars to collect! Unleash your creativity!”

I guess when the pig passed the birds and they distrubed by the vehicle noises & watch their eggs stealed, they chase and attack the pig.

Field Of Dreams sandbox costs money? What a rip, Rovio. I am not pleased.

Rank: Gold Flinger with 9660 points
By Dr. Omega (@dr-omega)

I’m not thrilled about it, but not mad either. You get A LOT of play for .99 cents. I don’t mind paying more for more play. And 2.99 is pretty cheap comparatively. Some of the Eagles and Power-ups were getting a bit ridiculous in price.

Compared to a $60 console game, I will gladly pay $3 for additional content that will keep me entertained for hours. Heck, a movie only lasts about 2 hours and anymore with tickets and food, that can be upward of $20 easy.

It seems that Roivo has given the players more in the last 3 months than there is time in the day to play and complete everything to a satisfactory level. Some of these we have had to purchase and others were free. Compared to other forms of entertainment, 2.99 is not expensive but it is still a luxury. I will do my share to provide revenue to Roivo because they seem to be giving it back to the players with new, exciting and innovative AB games. It is just truly amazing the amount they have produced.

I would never care about money. if they need it I give them what they want. they might need extra income for more updates and frenchise, then they need it… it may sound expensive, because we bought 30 danger zone levels for 1$ and we need to pay 3$ for one level, but money doesnt matter anyways

At least in the first few levels, you cannot start your vehicle without the egg on board, although I guess you only need it to stay on board to the finish line to get that objective.

I am repeatedly having issues with this game. Since i 3 starred all the levels for the first two episodes, and completed 3 original sandboxes, everytime i try and move the pig while in the “building screen”, the app crashes. this also happens whenever i try to use tnt while in using the machines (which made the last few starboxes almost impossible to get in the last few sandboxes), and also when i cross finish lines, even in levels i’ve completed. what’s happening?? i hoped with this update something would change, and from the very first movement of the pig in level 1, to just crossing the finish line in the same level, i keep having to restart! what can i do?

I’d like to commend Rovio for some excellent work optimizing the Android app. My three-year-old Droid probably shouldn’t be able to smoothly play as demanding a game as Bad Piggies. Indeed, when the game was initially released, the game would constantly become unresponsive for several seconds at a time, probably on the order of one freeze every couple of minutes. But with the new update, this annoyance has been almost completely eliminated. The app still doesn’t run quickly – a second on the game clock is probably equivalent on average to about 1.5-2.0 real-life seconds – but the experience is vastly improved without the freezing.

GOOD NEWS EVERYONE! I just found out a way on how Rovio could make the Field of Dreams and ME available for PC! here it is: you would buy the ME from the store and you would get an activation code, then you enter the code and ME and the Field of Dreams unlocks for PC! If someone would just send this idea (and give me credit) to Rovio, that’ll be GREAT! the Space Eagle and the Mechanic couldn’t be for PC because they’re limited characters.

Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

This idea has been mentioned before. There are a few issues with such a system. Most notably, such a code would have to be single-use to avoid any “funny business” with manipulators. As such, if there are any issues with your app (such as needing to uninstall/reinstall the app, changing computers, etc.) then that code would no longer be valid.

I think you are underestimating Rovio. They are smart developers.
