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.
