    Sadly, the early learning curve is far too shallow, while creative freedom is often illusory, with a single solution to many stages. Rovio does eventually loosen the reins, but the combination of rickety vehicles and unforgiving level design only heightens the frustration.

    It's unlikely to ever outsell Angry Birds, but Bad Piggies certainly outthinks it – with a clever mix of physics-based puzzling and experimentation.

    Create vehicles by combining pieces like wheels, propellers or balloons, and pilot your creations to the end of the level. Creative and at times pretty hard, with a nice physics engine.

    Bad Piggies is a promising start. Like the jury-rigged craft, how far it goes will depend on what its creators choose to add.

    Bad Piggies is a mediocre arcade/puzzle hybrid that really wants to look smart.

    AWESOME ANGRY BIRDS SPINOFF! It's really cool to play as the pigs in my opinion. My only problem is it gets TOO hard after a while. Still,AWESOME ANGRY BIRDS SPINOFF!

    THIS REVIEW IS DONE FOR THE ANDROID VERSION OF THE GAME BUT THERE AREN'T ANY DIFFERENCES WITH THE iOS AND PC ONES

    Fun, and gratifying can describe bad piggies pretty darn well. It does a pretty good job in teaching you the ropes with the hint book, but it's a very simple game anyway. So you will most definitely get the hang of it from the very first level.

    story wise there is not much to tell. There are the pigs from the first game and they want to get to the eggs and that's that. This time around you control the pigs and not the birds, and as much difference there is between birds and pigs, there is between angry birds and bad piggies. The gameplay is entirely different. In angry birds you had a slingshot and you had some birds which you had to slingshot on the pigs' castles destroying the pigs where in bad piggies your goal is to build vehicles with which you can complete the objectives of each level. You gain stars by completing said objectives(three for each level) and not by score. these are getting star boxes, completing the level without using a certain part, beating the cloak and of course sending the pig to the primary goal(which is a map or a hat for special levels). Yep they are just three of them, however the way to get them is different for each level demanding different thinking on how to build your vehicle, which compensates for their limited number. There is also reaction time involved, so not everything happens automatically after you're done making your vehicle. You need to activate your soda thrusters, for instance, at the right time because, one they do not activate immediately, two, too soon or to late and you will slide back while trying to climb a steep hill. Also did i mention that balancing the weight and thrust is also important? If you dont want your vehicle to flip over you better watch those two variables.

    On the technical side, graphics are unfortunately kept to the previous level. I kinda wished for some improvements, but that's just me. Others might like the flash like graphics. For the sound i have to say that it does its job, the pig's voice is funny and the music is catchy although there are just 3 tracks(main theme, construction theme, and action theme).

    In the physics department is where the game nails it. its fun to experiment with the physics and the vehicle parts, oh yes very enjoyable, and its very gratifying to complete a difficult objective(or all three stars in just one round).

    Finaly lets talk about the modes. There is the mode where you pass levels and it generally limits the parts available to you and the form of your vehicle while the second one is a sandbox mode where it gives you all the parts you have unlocked(by playing the main campaign) on some bigger than average levels and tells you to try and get the star boxes anyway you can.

    So, blow air into your balloons, shake your sodas, put petrol into your motors and take to the skies of the pig land!
