Bad Piggies Review
“Bad Piggies” — new hit from “Rovio”, the famous “Angry Birds” developers company.
Dirty piggies returns to revenge Angry Birds for all 5-years offenses ! Probably, you imagination already draws the epic battle between piggies and birds again, but on the piggies side now. Nothing of the kind ! Unfortunately, there are no angry birds in this game. This part narrates about difficult piggies life before they met a birds. But there are absolutely no reasons to upset about this fact.
“Bad Piggies” took all best from “Angry Birds” – humor, good design and complexity. I am in trouble to determine this game genre. This is amazing mix of puzzles, racing, mechanics constructor and arcade. Well, let’s look !
How to make an ideal menu ?
Main menu is a necessary evil of every game. “Rovio” guys made a main menu that it wants to stay. The secret to great groovy tunes in the background of what is going on. Funny mechanisms passes in the background, one by one. They absolutely negate the laws of physics – so be it!
Usual menu functions is also present, of course. You may look your achievements in Game Center, turn music off (but, please, don’t !), visit the project pages in Twitter, Facebook, or see the gameplay movies on YouTube. And, of course, start the game.
90 Levels and Sandbox bargain.
There are 2 levels available in the beginning. “Ground Hog Day” level allows to learn more about rolling and jumping machines. “When Pigs Fly” force to study airspace. Both level game mechanics similar, but feelings are absolutely different. This is very reasonable developers decision to divide game on these two parts. Stalled in one ? Make a breakthrough in another !
Remember Childhood !
Game process is like “Lego” assembling. Sensations are very similar! There are some basic blocks in the first level. Every finished level opens additional blocks. Your task is to assemble machine for your piggy to finish level. The machine can rebuild many times, while design is not necessary to reach end of level. Thinking your machine is ready ? Press “Start” button and green pilot will fly or go, depends level type.
Very interesting feature in “When Pigs Fly” levels is turn fan on and off. It allows to choose two absolutely different tactics for level passage.
Bonuses, Bonuses, Bonuses !!!
This part is for guys who love to find all secrets in every game. This is a good style in modern games to have some “Easter Eggs” for advanced gamers. “Bad Piggies” is not an exception. First bonus is available on fifth level. So, look around carefully and get additional features, hidden levels, and other bonuses. Explore every screen pixel to find all possible bonuses !
“Must have” game without any discussions. Simple and intuitive gameplay for adult and for child. Gradually increasing difficulty, and a lot of “brain breaker” puzzles for gaming guru, thousands ways to finish level. Puzzle constructor, race and arcade in one. Five stars soundtrack. “Rovio” have outdone themselves!
Finally, look a funny video from “Rovio”.
