Rovio’s Bad Piggies Takes Off for Android, Fly Little Piggy!

Rovio’s Bad Piggies hit Google Play this morning. So far, it’s kind of fun. The objective is to reach the end of the levels by building contraptions with a set amount of supplies you are given such as boxes, wings, and other misc. tools. The game is more fun than I had anticipated, but the pig’s laughter is very nauseating. 

There are two versions, one which is standard definition and one that is “HD” for tablets. Both versions are free at the moment, but I will say, advertisements are there and they are annoying. Hopefully a paid version is soon to follow. Download the game and let us know what you think of Rovio’s newest creation.

    I’ll wait for the paid version to avoid these horrible ads everyone is talking about in the comments.

    So, how is everyone doing on it? I find it excessively easy to get 1 star, fairly easy to get 2 stars, and frustratingly hard to get 3 stars. As new as it is, does anyone have any tips for 3 staring the first batch of levels?

    • Rusty Shackleford

      Keep in mind you don’t have to satisfy the objectives for all three stars at one time. On the ones that are giving you trouble, look at what the objectives are and build to satisfy one of the objectives and finish, then restart and do the other. I nabbed all three on a few levels in one go, but for the most part it’s easier to do them separately (especially if there’s a timed objective).

    Ads? Haven’t seen ads in years. AdFree has been the first app in my app drawer for years.

    I HATE MOBILE ADS! HATE HATE HATE EM!
    As an Aviator, I think I could get into this, haven’t yet tried it.
    But for those who will complain about it, my humble opinion is that you would need to see Rovio spread out a bit with this, they can’t rely on one stereotypical gametype throughout, that would be like the supposedly wiped out old moto and the RAZR … so although a copy of some other games out there, having this one emulated with piggies seems to be a good way of branching out for them.

      *cough*adaway*cough* *Must be rooted though

      • RW-1

        I know, am rooted, etc. I just hope that with the trend to tiered data plans (which I’m not on) – that we collectively as users can end mobile ads which would be using the now monitored data. I think that arguement makes sense right? Why should I pay for data used to deliver me an ad on my device? Second, I’d rather not have them than have to install an app to block.

        • EvanTheGamer

          I completely agree.

          As an Android user, I never click on ads, ever. I just never feel the need to. It’s just a waste of space and a waste of time.

          I would much rather pay $4.99 for this game rather than get frustrated by lame ads.

          Not sure why the hell Rovio went this route, when they could have just as easily released a Premium version with no ads, just like they did with Angry Birds Space. Makes no sense.

          Hopefully in the next few days, they’ll release a paid version, Here’s hoping anyways.

          Matter of fact…with the 25 Billion Android Downloads Celebration underway, that would have been super cool of Rovio to release a paid version for $.25, even if it was for only 24 hours. People would have LOVED Rovio for that. Opportunity missed. Damn.

  • Flyinion

    Ugh @ ads. You’d think they’d have followed the same format as Space and learn to release a paid version as well.

    • Mack

      Root your phone and install AdAway. Bam, problem solved.

      • Flyinion

        Been rooted for months, will have to look for that app. The roms I used to run on my OG Droid usually had ad blocking by default, but AOKP on my Gnex doesn’t

  • youdoneyo69

    Not downloading it because its free which means it has ads.

    • EvanTheGamer

      *cough*adaway*cough* *Must be rooted though

      • youdoneyo69

        I am rooted but I’m not supporting it. Release a Premium version and I’ll get it.

    Why the hell is the HD version the same size?

    • John

      That’s what we’re all wondering. No one can figure it out.

  • JDub

    Adaway works just fine for those pesky ads in this game.

    • EvanTheGamer

      Thanks for the tip!

  • EvanTheGamer

    I downloaded Bad Piggies early this morning, and I take back everything I said about the Angry Birds inspired game a few weeks back. It’s actually lots of fun. Definitely doesn’t have that Angry Birds feel, but that’s probably a good thing.

    Just wish they had released a Premium version so I don’t get annoyed by the bloody ads, which I never even think about clicking on anyways. The ads are a waste of space.
