Bad Piggies — the build-a-jalopy Angry Birds spin-off — comes to Windows Phone

Bad Piggies on Windows Phone

Bad Piggies, the pig-focused spinoff of Angry Birds, is now available for Windows Phone. The game, which inverts the point of view from the furious avians to the abominable swine, has the player build increasingly complicated and absurd vehicles to get the pigs around the levels, with the end goal of getting their hooves on the birds' eggs. Leveraging a lot of the physics work learned from their previous dud Amazing Alex, Bad Piggies uses all manner of mechanical bits — from wheels and springs to balloons and propellers and wings — to get the pigs moved about the level.

It took a good long while to get Bad Piggies onto Windows Phone. The game was first released back in late 2012 for iPhone and iPad, though it has seen substantial updates and expansions since then, all of which are included in the Windows Phone release. Bad Piggies features over 200 levels of vehicular hijinks and puzzles, and you can open 36 more by earning all three stars on every level. It's available now from the Windows Phone Store for $0.99.

Microsoft's servers are down... We will have to wait... But it's amazing that this game is finally here ! :)

Ben Willson says:

Had to open the wallet app directly and answer silly questions.


(so want to hide my games -- they belong in the hub not the menu!!)

icthusman1 says:

elmacho says:

Store not working.guess the servers are down :( 

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Bad Piggies it's free on Android and paid on iOS right? If I'm right I'll buy it, if it's free on both platforms then no.

flibblesan says:

Free on Android with ads and in-app purchases. There is a paid version in the Amazon store that removes the ads. iOS has a free ad-supported & paid version.

reda igbaria says:

Store is down in Europe and Asia. Because outage

YES! Although it took a while, I'm definitely downloading this game after my phone finishes updating, excellent! Now if PVZ2 would come, I'll be one happy user.

patiua says:

Aye. Most important missing game is definitely plants vs zombies 2!!!

don't the people that actually have PvZ2 not even like it? i heard it was just ridiculous with micro transactions to the point where it's not even playable.

conansaga says:

I agree, game is not as good as the first part in my opinion. I played it for a little bit on my wife's iPhone and after completing first world got so bored that I went back to good old PVZ 1 on my Lumia. PVZ 2 is just pumped up version of PVZ with bunch of in app purchases and debatably better graphics. All the charm and beauty from PVZ 1 is just gone...EA just needs more money as usually they don't care about game quality.

Paul Acevedo says:

PvZ2 was overloaded with IAPs right at first, but PopCap updated it and got them in check. The game is actually really fun now, with no real need to buy IAPs unless you want to make the game easier or get the premium plants.

Yes the store isn't avaibale since half an hour, India region. BTW good to see another Rovio game hit the Windows Phone store. Its not XBOX and still paid...Duhhh....

bitz0071 says:

Mine store I down since 3 hours (India)

Ben Willson says:

Open the wallet app answer the silly questions  -- it will then work again.

fitchalcyone says:

No lie, this has made my day! Downloading NOW.

Aashish13 says:

Servers are down and I need to download tons of apps on SD card on my Lumia 720.

Foma Kiniaev says:

Store is down and no article about this in wpc

IzaacJ says:

No Xbox and paid, no thanks Rovio!

Hell, I'd have paid if it WAS Xbox. Wtf? Rovio jump ship as well?

tjecco says:

Finally, months of moaning with them, so happy

PipoDj says:

Store not working

reb31 says:

Store down in UK

Jas00555 says:

Store is working fine for me.

KotsarikosG says:

Store down :/:/:/:/:/:/

astroXP says:

No Xbox Live integration = No buy

coip says:

Ditto. No Xbox, No Buy. #SaveXboxWP. Tell Rovio. Details here.

I mailed them last week showing a poster about bad piggies coming soon to WP which was released in 2012. They replied that they were sorry and will do something about it.
I didn't expect it this soon....

tfc ninja says:

how to put phone in silent mode in wp8.1?

TonyDedrick says:

Never really took to Bad Piggies like other AB games. Now, I would be happy if we got a Friends app

Edwardlb20 says:

Ringer Volume down all the way, vibration set to off (click on the arrow, look in the bottom left)

TonyDedrick says:

I'm assuming you replied to the wrong post. I'm referring to a Angry Birds Friends app.

KotsarikosG says:

Something has been done due the arrival of the 8.1 ...

RobinPaul says:

My store works fine.

kabir1861 says:

Store not working after update (turkey)

david90531 says:

Will wait for it becoming free. Played this one on tablet, not bad

No Xbox, very disappointing. Therefore no buy, bad job Rovio.

Edwardlb20 says:

In fairness, getting an xbox banner for your game is hard work. I won't even start to talk about how long updates take too..

Yep this is a well known problem. Still Rovio managed it in the past, even updating their games frequently.
Now they stopped making Xbox games and I stopped downloading them.

Paid and no love to xbox?? Again??

evans_vn says:

Marketplace doesn't work!!!

busyman96 says:

It's about time considering it was announced at the same time with the other platforms! Thanks Rovio for not scraping it!

Pfft...Rovio wants to abandon Xbox and still charge $. Piss off. Shame really, would've paid up to$3 for that.

dray111 says:

Finally this game is here...

JKOgden says:

I was just about to buy it until I noticed that it's not an Xbox game :|

NickMon68 says:

No xbox not paying then. WP games should have xbox or what the point of the phones ?

Paul Acevedo says:

Games are still games, on Windows Phone or any phone. The point has always been and should always be to play them and have fun.

coip says:

But if they're missing that crucial feature that makes them fun to some people--the social integration of Xbox achievements--then they can't have as much fun playing them.

Paul Acevedo says:

As much fun, I understand and sympathize with. Can't have any fun, that's only disappointing.

vjollila96 says:

I don't care about bad biggies is not with Xbox

DJCBS says:

No Xbox, no thanks.

Kaye Morales says:

What?? It's not free in WP?? Tss, no thanks.

Edwardlb20 says:

It would be nice if I could actually download it though...

EffEll80 says:

My store is available (ger).
But not this App.


Theese guys at Rovio are the worse thing I have ever seen. Take this game for example, Its built using unity game engine so its perfectly portable to winrt. Did they release it?

Of course not, they just ignore the platform.

So Good Night and Good Luck to Finland

Paul Acevedo says:

It will probably come to RT eventually. Don't have a cow, man.

djgreedo says:

It actually requires more work to make a Windows (RT) version from Unity than it does to make a Windows Phone version (things like screen size/state change handling, for example - the phone version can pretty much be generated strraight from Unity with no extra coding). Hopefully they can get it out there quickly because in my opinion this is a tablet game, not a phone game.


They've never released Amazing Alex (another great game more suited to tablet) on Windows RT though...


I had given up hope that Bad Piggies would come to Windows Phone...pleasantly surprised, and 99c is a bargain.

vertgrall says:

Well at least its not a spinoff of Flappy Birds...

Pranay1995 says:

Fucking stupid, they say windows store reasonable number of apps and games,well it does, but problem starts when they are paid or not. Most of the free games on android and iOS are fucking paid on windows store. Fucking racist game developers..
Its like, Android has a huge market so publish a game for free and make money through underdogs (windows store). MOTHERF**KING RACIST DEVELOPERS, SUCK IT..

Paul Acevedo says:

Please watch your language and try to think more before you comment.

djgreedo says:

Wow...upset because a high-quality, polished game with 200+ levels costs $1...that is one of the saddest things I've ever heard.


And it's not free on either iOS or Android.


Do you not think developers deserve payment for their work? As far as payment goes you can't get much lower than 99c.


The sense of entitlement some people have astounds me.

Pranay1995 says:

Brother, i really want game developers to seriously paid for their work, but it's not about just bad pigges that i am talking about, many of the free games on android and/or iOS are paid on windows store and i am tired and frustrated about it. Is Windows really running that behind for game developers?

rzruzz123 says:

Cannot try and not xbox -_-

Pedro Silva2 says:

Free on Android , comes to windows Phone, puts 99 cents up your ass suck it , its not even xbox -.-

Rovio its like EA but for smartphones.

marvel14 says:
