The Angry Birds-maker Rovio would like to prove that it’s not a one-trick pony with its new game Bad Piggies. This is its third offering after the blockbuster Angry Birds. Angry Birds, the iconic game, which had gaming enthusiasts addicted, seems to be developing signs of user fatigue.
The new game features pigs which strike back at the birds, who attacked them with slingshots in Angry Birds. The pigs fo not use slingshots but use vehicles to demolish the birds' eggs.
Rovio, founded in 2003, became a global phenomenon after it launched Angry Birds for Apple's iPhone in 2009. The highly-addictive game helped Rovio's sales jump 10 times to $100 million last year. It has topped the gaming charts, with a billion plus downloads, and had 200 million monthly users by 2011-end. It compares well with the 240 million users like the Facebook-based Farmville.
