Bad Piggies Updated with Little Pig Adventures Sandbox Level & New Gearbox Part

Prince Porky and Mechanic Pig are back in a new Bad Piggies update that includes a new Sandbox level, “Little Pig Adventures”, as well as a new Gearbox part. Bad Piggies v1.6.0 is now available for iOS and Android via Google Play and the Amazon App Store.

This update includes:

  • A GIANT new Sandbox level: Little Pig Adventures. This level is similar to Field of Dreams in that it has 40 boxes to obtain (walkthroughs).
  • Gearbox Part: “Ever wish you could put your contraptions in reverse? The pigs now have the technology. Add the gearbox to your contraptions to travel to the right AND left!” I have yet to find this part in the inventory. If you’ve found it please leave a comment below and let us know where to obtain it.
  • Quickly switch between three different contraptions. Tap the compass icon to the right of the pause button and you’ll see three icons labeled: 1, 2, and 3. Tap these to switch between the different versions of your contraptions.
  • You are now prompted to enter your birthday and sex before you’re allowed to continue into the app. Presumably this is to tailor the ads, but I could be wrong. I sort of hope it is, as in recent weeks I’ve seen a number of ads that are definitely not appropriate for young kids. If you share a device, you might consider entering a young age.

From Rovio’s blog post:

Since it’s launch in 2012, Bad Piggies has reached over 100 million downloads – thanks to the big part played by a strong community of avid pigineers! To celebrate, the piggies are back with something new. The new update includes a huge sandbox level, Little Pig Adventure, and a new part – the gearbox. Players can use the gearbox in their contraptions to travel in reverse. It sounds simple yes – but for the pigs, it’s groundbreaking technology.

Can you harness the power of the gearbox to create the ultimate flying/rolling/crashing machine and steer the pigs safely to their destination?

The new Little Pig Adventure sandbox pushes players’ engineering skills to the limit with new parts to collect, slippery icy surfaces, a huge play area to navigate, and new achievements. Collect all starboxes, and add some new parts to your collection!

Read the complete post here.


Congratulations to the Piggies for 100 Million downloads, and congrats to our very own Pigineers on the name drop, as well! Hope we can convince @les-toreadors and the rest of the Pigineering crew to start building some amazing new contraptions! If you guys haven’t seen the amazing videos Pigineering produces they’re definitely worth checking out.

Based on hints given by Rovio on their social media pages, this is the just the start of things to come for the Bad Piggies in 2015.  Are you excited for the new sandbox level?  Are you clamoring for more piggy action?  Do you have a sudden craving for eggs?  Add your squeals, oinks and thoughts in the comments below.

I’m just glad to have more Bad Piggies! Excellent! I recently got a new tablet and my backup didn’t work, so I “had” to go through all the levels again. It was quite a lot of fun, and went a lot faster than I thought. I just “cheat” on sandboxes and build a flyer that can go in all directions and still be small enough to fit in most spots (some of the tunneled stars are still tricky, but some sandboxes can be cleared in minutes, as most “pigineers” know.

Anyway, very glad to hear that 2015 will breathe some new life back into this excellent game!

Can you take a screenshot of the design and post it here? I kinda want to build something like that.

Hey man, sorry I didn’t subscribe to this so I missed your rseponse!

I don’t need a picture, as it is drop-dead easy to build a flyer contraption.

Just take three metal boxes and line then up horizontally one level off the bottom. Put the little wheels under it. Then, put an airplane propeller on either side (these let you move both left and right).

Put the piggy in the middle box and a “gray” engine on either side of him (the middle-sized engine). This leaves you with perfect balance.

Then put a helicopter propeller on top on the middle box.

Take a bit of practice, but you can now go up and down, left and right, and have wheels to land on and roll.

Of course, this does not help with getting in certain nooks and crannies, but it will get you a lot of stars really quickly.

Just played it. Currently have 39/40 stars on it.

Collecting star boxes actually unlocks more parts which can be used, including an egg and 6 jack o’ lanterns, which were previously only in the field of dreams. There is also a gearbox item, which the centre item in the picture shown above. This item allows you to change the direction the motorised wheels turn. About time!

Other changes: You can now save 3 different creations per sandbox level. This feature is accessed through the new icon on the top left.

The new sandbox level also has interactive elements, such as forts around star boxes, large fans which blow your contraption around , breakable wooden bridges, balloons which hold floating star boxes, and an icy floor which causes your contraptions to slide around.

I’ve always wanted an interactive environment in Bad Piggies. Maybe these new elements can be used to make a new episode, too.

@Korath88 :

Congrat for 39/40 in so little time.
You play on iOs ?
If yes, you can tell me if the achievements just free by playing and by searching stars or if it is really necessary to make sometimes a specific action ?

Thank you

@grimmjow :

Unfortunately, I do not play on a device with achievements enabled, but others may be able to help you.
Also, I have all 40 star boxes collected now :)

Just to confirm with the others, the items from each star box are always the same. It’s not about how many you collect, but which ones you collect.

I just managed to get the gearbox part. The reason is sort of unclear, but it appears you need to retry a level once. At least, that’s what happened to me.

I got the gear from the first star box on the ground to the right of the starting point.

Ok, I have the gear box, but my machine still goes to the right whether or not I tap the gear.

Uh, DUH! In case anyone else, like me, didn’t read the post all that carefully, the gear box only works with the powered wheel.

By Partshade (@)

Makes sense. I mean any other powered item can go left or right without the gear box depending on how you build it.

All the parts to make the vehicles and it will let you drive alone

In early December last year I sent this to Rovio.
Dear fun guys (and gals),
On 27.09.2012 you released Bad Piggies. On that day I was a bit bitter-sweet becouce I had no device to play it on. I purchesed a tablet only so I can play it (it ment that mush to me).
Now it has been more than a year since it\’s last new levels update. Why is that? Is this the end if it all?
I realy hope that you will continue the idea of it becouce I find Bad Piggies to be the most fun, most creative, most original and overall best game you have made so far.
If you ever deside to do something more with the game, here are my ideas:
When you went from flat Angry Birds to ones in space, the result was amazing. It simply must be done with Bad Piggies. Pigeneers have made many space vehicles in Field of Dreams.
I see it like so: Chapter one \”Star Hogs\”, in the first level the player is given a pig, a box and a pulse thruster(it is like the bellow but for space). The player has to accelerate thru 0G empty space to get to the finishline (I will be a finnishline since you are in Espoo.). Later in the game the player will have to make spaceships from boxes, jet engines and TNT, so he can escape with the eggs (or some other plot element since they are in peace with the birds right now) while under enemy fire. Here propelers only work while if near a planet.
As a pigineer myself, I find it annoyng that every time I think of a new cool ride in a sandbox I have to delete the last one. Is it possible to add a contraption save function, so whenever a player wishes to, he could save something awesome, he was made and qlickly recall it when needed, it is a simple thing, but it would be very usefull.
I had the idea of a giroscopic item, that stayes in a box like an engine does, and whan activated it does not let the box it is in to rotate, making one wheeled carts possible.
Can you make it so that the player can make custom vehicles for the title screen. I would find it fun.
I wish to be repayed for the ideas by seeing them come true.
I will be sad to see this game die. Do not make me sad, pleace.

This is what they sent back:

A fantastic update with new cool features, like the fans. And it was very hard completing and took a while to get all 40 stars! But I would have expected more than just one sandbox level.

A-Maze-Ing – Collect the star in the labyrinth in Little Pig Adventure
That’ll Do, Pig – Collect all the stars in Little Pig Adventure
Rube Goldpig Machine – Collect a star with chain reaction in Little Pig Adventure
Gotta Go Fast – Collect the Alley-oop star in Little Pig Adventure Sandbox
Full Reverse – Use the gearbox in a contraption

Yeah. My only complaint is that the level is really hard to navigate. And it’s pretty hard to make a vehicle that can survive the giant falls and twists.

I always feel that I need and engineering degree to play BP successfully. I can appreicate BL kart because most of the ones I put together are worse in their performance.

Thanks BL for the explanation of the birth date and gender.

Noticed the camera on the bottom left for Everyplay. There is a sign in for that to review the replays and take part in discussions with other members.
