Angry Birds Spin-Off Puts Piggies in Planes

Angry Birds Spin-Off Puts Piggies in Planes

If the Bad Piggies can dream it they can do it, in this new gameplay video.

Someone really ought to take King Pig aside and tell him that biplane of his will never work, but then neither will anything else the Bad Piggies build ... and that seems to be the point. Getting your pork chops blown away in a tragic accident is half the laugh, in this newly released gameplay video. Will you smash into a thousand pieces because of pilot error, or will that crate of dynamite be your downfall?

Broadly speaking, gameplay seems similar to other entrants in the Angry Birds series. There is a Physics Engine and it is not your friend, as you zoom from left to right across the map collecting stars. The difference here is that, rather than catapult yourself across the terrain, you build your own Heath Robinson deathtrap and launch your daft green ass to glory.

If you can imagine it you can build it, complete with wheels, motors, odd pointy bits ... but no seatbelts or parachutes. Pity, really, but then who wants to oink forever? Well, you might, as the video seems to hint that there are points in it for you if you navigate the course without cracking up your crate.

For those who want to find out the technological advances the pigs are working on, you might want to look at Hogwatch. Otherwise there isn't long to wait, as this is due September 27th for iOS, Android, Mac and PC.

Oooh. Sounds fun. I wasn't all that hooked on Amazing Alex as I was with the Angry Birds games, but I'm probably going to buy this when it comes out. I doubt it'll be a universal app for iOS so I have the choice of buying it twice for my iPhone and iPad, or just getting it for one of them (probably iPad). I really hate it when app developers do this. Rovio's a big company, but they still penny pinch.

I'm getting a strong Incredible Machine meets Lemmings vibe from this game for some reason...

CAPTCHA: brand spanking new

No...it's definitely not that...

Looks like it's gona be a good mobile game to play when in line for things and such. I laughed at it, so a good chance.

Look like I got a good reason to use the Wifi on my phone now (I'm don't used my phone that often).

Angry Birds: Nuts & Bolts eh. I don't see this succeeding with Angry Birds traditional audience. I don't consider engineering to be a simple activity that I can do while waiting at the bank. This definitly is a game I want, but on devices like the 3DS, Vita, and Tablets, which I see this being more successful on.

Oh gosh dang it! You beat me to it!

OT: Looks okay. Angry Birds isn't my thing...

My girls are going to love it. They feel sorry for them in Angry Birds.
