Bad Piggies is a puzzle video game developed by Rovio Entertainment, and was the company's first spin-off of Angry Birds. The game launched on Android, iOS, Windows and Mac on September 27, 2012. However, it can be found on iOS and Android. It was released for BlackBerry 10 on October 2013 and for Windows Phone on April 2014. Unlike the Angry Birds games, the player assists the minion pigs in building contraptions that travel on land and in air to collect pieces of a map to ultimately capture and take away the Angry Birds eggs. As of October 2012, Bad Piggies was the fastest-selling game on the Apple App Store, and the quickest one to reach the top of the app list in just three hours.
In June 2014, Rovio made Bad Piggies free-to-play, since it previously had a purchase price.
The objective of the game is to build a contraption that transports the pig from a starting point to the finish line, usually indicated by a map. Such contraptions are made of wood and/or iron (similar to Angry Birds), as well as other objects such as wheels, two-liter bottles, umbrellas (to increase air resistance), motors, fans, springs, TNT, balloons, ropes, and rockets.
Similar to Angry Birds, the player can earn up to three stars per level, but stars are not earned by scoring points. Instead, players automatically earn one star for completing the level. For each level, the other two stars can be obtained by clearing certain objectives, such as:
Completing the level within a certain time limit (e.g. 10 seconds)
Collecting 1 or 2 "star boxes" on the playing field
Not using a certain part (e.g. a wheel, an umbrella, etc.)
