Prequel that tries its best to flip the bird
Bad Piggies Review
by on October 11, 2012
Coming up with a game that beats Angry Birds was always going to be an uphill struggle for Rovio. Considering the franchise still has wings, with a Star Wars spin-off in the works – anything else the company releases seems a bit, well, weak.
Amazin Alex was a nice diversion but never really had the replay factor Angry Birds still offers.
Its prequel, though, Bad Piggies is something altogether different – it’s a game that retains the feel of Angry Birds but is more of a puzzle adventure than swipe and hit game like its bedfellow.
When it comes to gameplay, physics is still very much used. The whole plot sees you having to get a pig from one end of the stage to the other by myriad means. This includes the likes of fizzy drinks propelling the pigs forward, flying vehicles and other such interesting objects.
It’s not a simple as Angry Birds and perhaps this is the games downfall. At the beginning of each level you have to create the vehicle the pig goes into and then propel this vehicle through the level. This isn’t as easy as it sounds and definitely makes the game harder than Angry Birds.
This does mean that it is not as instantly playable as Angry Birds first was – but this is still a game that is addictive and full of fun. But it is also full of frustration.
