Rovio's Bad Piggies gameplay revealed in new teaser trailer

Rovio revealed Bad Piggies, its swine-centric follow-up to Angry Birds, a few weeks back, but exact gameplay details had been a mystery, until now. Today, the first trailer for Bad Piggies gives us our first taste of what we can expect from the pig-focused follow-up. Much like Rovio's Amazing Alex, the pigs are tasked with building all manner of wild contraptions in order to make their way through levels, stealing eggs as they go.

The piggies will be able to include wheels, umbrellas, propellers and even rockets in their creations, before guiding them through the 2D platformer-style levels. It's certainly a bit of a departure from flinging suicidal birds into the piggies' defenses, and hopefully an indication of a little more gameplay depth.

"As far as the gameplay goes, Bad Piggies and Angry Birds are complete opposites," Petri Järvilehto, EVP of Games at Rovio told Y! Games. "Angry Birds smash things up, Bad Piggies build stuff. The pigs are all about making plans and building things, even -- and especially -- when they don't work!"

Bad Piggies is due to appear for Android, iOS and other platforms next Thursday, September 27. You can find the full teaser trailer after the break.

  • Looks very entertaining. If the gameplay is as good as what they portray in this video, I bet they have another big hit.
  • So is this why there have been no new levels to Amazing Alex?
  • I guess Rovio has realised that it has to stick with its equivalent of Mario... all people want from them is Angry Birds.
  • This looks really amazing. Can't wait to download it!
  • Looks interesting. But the trailer does seem to show them failing to succeed at their own game, except once. The planes seem unfit for the scenarios demonstrated.
  • I guess the pigs just try and build planes since most dont fly that well lol
  • Looks cool! Reminds me of a more interactive, fun, personalized Potty Racers on from back in the day :)
