Bad Piggies, the new game from the creator of Angry Birds, has been released today for Android and iOS devices. The mechanics-based puzzle game casts the evil pigs from Angry Birds in the lead role for the first time – but is Bad Piggies any good?

The idea of Bad Piggies is to make the construction at the top of the hill, then release the vehicle towards the goal line. As it flies down the hill you can use the objects you attached to help manipulate the craft and guide the pigs to the stars and ultimately to the goal.

Bad Piggies is a completely different challenge to Angry Birds. The hit-and-miss approach of the catapults has gone and instead Bad Piggies requires more mechanical thinking. This in turn makes the game less appealing for some. You can no longer just turn on the game and start wildly flinging your fingers around.

Bad Piggies is more of a labored process of working out what materials you have and how to join them together to deal with the obstacles facing you and collect all the stars. I would argue that the satisfaction you get out of Bad Piggies doesn’t warrant all this brain energy.
