Bad Piggies

Developer: Rovio Entertainment

Platforms: iOS, Android

Release Date: September 27, 2012

The first in what should become a series of Angry Bird spin-offs that greatly deviate from the traditional gameplay, Bad Piggies encourages strategy and construction rather than mindless bird flinging to solve your problems. It's a fun expansion on the series' universe (if we're now calling it an Angry Birds universe) and is well worth the couple of bucks it costs.
