  • After Angry Birds, here come the Bad Piggies!

    The Finnish studio- Rovio Entertainment, which rose to immense popularity with it's hit franchise Angry Birds, will be hoping to top the charts once again starting September 27 when it launches it's new game, Bad Piggies! This time, the evil pigs from Angry Birds take the center stage and that's where the similarities end. There are no birds or slingshots here, instead there are green, round pigs and you need to move them according to the map while collecting items along the way and ultimately, reach a goal. Each level involves a pig to be moved from a starting point to a finishing point . The pigs are moved by building things such as cars with the help help of various items such as wheels, fans, springs, umbrellas among other attachments and building flying vehicles using balloons and some other items. "We see Bad Piggies as a long-term brand-building exercise. In three years from now we want to see Angry Birds and Bad Piggies as strong vibrant brands out there," Petri Jarvilehto, head of gaming at Rovio, told Reuters in an interview. The Finnish studio was banking highly upon it's previous game Amazing Alex, which hit No. 1 on download charts in July but since then it has crashed to 91st place in the iTune rankings.
    There are hardly any people who would doubt the initial success of the new game, but how well it fares over time, will have to be seen. As far as it's comparison with Angry Birds goes, it is doubtful if a puzzle game will reach the same levels of success as a game that is so simple to pick up and play. The Android version comes for free while it costs $0.99 and $2.99 for iPhone and iPad respectively. Bad Piggies for Mac will cost $4.99. The title will be coming soon to Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.
