You may have heard of a game called Angry Birds. It’s been kind of been a big hit. Anyway, Rovio has been promising for a while to do a pigs-themed follow-up and here it is. Or the trailer anyway. With Bad Piggies, instead of trying to knock down structures, you’re going to be building crazy contraptions for pigs to capture bird eggs. Yeah, that looks pretty damn fun.
Now that Rovio has made a gazillion dollars from Angry Birds and Angry Birds Space, they recently announced their next game, called Amazing Alex. The game will be somewhat educational, and based on the game ‘Casey’s Contraptions’ (above) that they recently acquired from developers Snappy Touch and Mystery Coconut.
Yesterday, the first true sequel of sorts came to the Angry Birds franchise with Angry Birds Space. There’s already been a few variations, including Angry Birds Rio, which was just a shameless tie in to the animated Rio film and Angry Birds season, a shameless attempt to get people to buy more Angry Birds stuff because it’s got hearts and jack-o-lanterns and shit, but the gameplay was still basically the same— take your birds, fling them at piles of wood and stone and ice, knock out the pigs. But Angry Birds Space feels like a completely new and exciting thing all together.
