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!… Expand
Sep 7, 2013The birds crash, the pigs build: and after hours of crashing, it's time for the player to build the most absurd machines to progress through each levels. It just never stops being fun, in success and in failure with the latter usually accompanied by roars of laughter, and the former by a moment of pride. Obsessive music and bright colors help to make up for an incredible experience.
Apr 1, 2013The creative slant makes for a far more interesting game than the original “crash into various structures” formula. With over 400 levels divided in three chapters, over 60 sandbox levels and rewards for collecting hidden skulls, Bad Piggies is packed with a serious amount of content making it the perfect game to spend as little as five minutes or upwards of two hours with.
