Angry Bird's Pigs Break Out with their Own iOS Game

Rovio announced the immediate availability of Bad Piggies for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad on Thursday. The new game features the pigs from the Angry Birds series, but players build contraptions to help the pigs find the eggs they so desperately want.

Rovio calls Bad Piggies "the ultimate flying/crawling/rolling/spinning/crashing device" game. After players build their pig's tumbly-flying craft, they navigate it through the game level to the Angry Bird's eggs.

The game includes 60 levels, 30 extra puzzles that unlock after scoring three stars on levels, four sandbox levels along with an "ultra-special, ultra-secret, ultra-difficult" sandbox level, 33 objects to collect and use to build better pig crafts, and more.

Bad Piggies is priced at US$0.99 for the iPhone and iPod touch, and Bad Piggies HD for the iPad costs $2.99. Both are available for download at Apple's iTunes-based App Store.
