How do you follow up an earth-shattering hit like Angry Birds? Not with Amazing Alex, Rovio's first property to branch out of their only previous IP. The game currently sits with only a tiny fraction of the downloads of Angry Birds, even on the free version. So with the third go-round, they've gone back to create a spinoff featuring the antagonists of the aggravated avians: Bad Piggies. The new game is a combination of the previous two, combining the simple physics-based goals of Angry Birds and the contraption building of Amazing Alex.
Bad Piggies, Rovio's much-awaited spin-off from Angry Birds has just hit the Play Store. For those unaware, Rovio's latest game has been in the works for some time now. The game features the same dastardly pigs you spent hours upon hours crushing in Angry Birds, but this time they're the protagonists…sort of.
Payers are challenged to work against gravity and physics in Piggies to take these pigs through various wild environments in contraptions and flying machines of their own design.
This little piggy had some great success. This little piggy had none. This little piggy, however, has us wondering what's going on all the way home. Rovio announced today that, in a few weeks, we'll be seeing a sequel to Angry Birds arrive on the Play Store. Instead of being built from the ground up this time (or, rather, being bought from the ground up), this one will feature the mild-mannered pigs that you've spent so much time destroying.
