Oink, Oink: Bad Piggies comes to Windows Phone

0. phoneArena 15 Apr 2014, 01:59 posted on

It is hard to believe, but Rovio's Bad Piggies has been available on iOS and Android since September 2012. The game is similar to any of the Angry Birds games, but from the viewpoint of those poor porkers. You are left in charge to create a rolling or flying vehicle that gets the pigs to a safe destination. The player is given a number of items to build this machine out of, which is where the challenge comes in...

Is that WP's official slogan?

"Better be smoother than laggier"
There is WP's slogan. :)

Yeah, you can just keep smoothly scrolling down the cumbersome interface through your crappy app selections to play your "new" game that's nearly 2 years old.

You're right to a certain degree. WP8 is sure smooth, but that's pretty much the only thing good about it.
App selection is still pretty bad, even though it has gotten better. And yeah, this game is ooooollldd (but better late than never). Also, WP8 is not fast (as some claimed). The smooth animation pretty much covers it up, as I and some other guy(s) have mentioned before. But this is just for WP8. I can't say that about WP 8.1.

As for the cumbersome interface, some people prefer that simple looking interface than the more colorful and customizable UI's. It's not that bad. And with WP 8.1, you can make the UI more "complicated" by adding a "background" photo.

Still would lag less than Chrome on Android.

That was fixed months ago. But you wouldn't know...

Actually, I do know. I own a Nexus 7 (2012) and nothing has changed its laggy performance after the KitKat update, even after running a quad-core processor.

I don't get WP enthusiasts that defend MSFT through its faults as well... It is better late than never, sure. But it's best ON TIME.

That is a problem that will be solved as the WP market share continues to grow. As WP emerges, so will developer support.

It is OK to say that WP does NOT have ALL the apps and features as of WP8, even maybe after WP8.1 may lack certain apps or features... But if it works for you, and it works well (at or above your satisfaction) no NEED to get defensive.

Yea, this app was published late to the store. Yea it's better having it late, than not having it. No it would have been better to have had it ON TIME. No it is not acceptable for other apps and the Store to continue to follow suit. But it is expected that developer support will increase as WP market share.
