Heard of the game Bad Pigs? Or is it Bad Piggies?
Some clever hacker decided to create a malicious app deceivingly similar to one of the top games in the Google Play store. And, it was downloaded more than 10,000 times before people took notice.
Security company F-Secure wrote on Wednesday that it had located Bad Pigs -- which had the same artwork and app description as Bad Piggies -- and let Google know. The only apparent differences between the two apps were the names of the app and the developer -- who was "Dan Stokes" rather … Read more
Another amazing game from the makers of the very popular game series Angry Birds, Bad Piggies is the same story viewed from the perspective of the ingenious little green pigs, originally featured in Angry Birds. However, this game takes a very different approach to the experience by immersing the player in an interactive sandbox. Players must use creativity and engineering to get through each quest.
For those without a high-speed Internet connection, Bad Piggies may take a while to download. It is 42MB, but the size is due to the game's incredible details and physics engine. The game opens … Read more
The creators of Angry Birds are back with a game that centers on pigs this time around, and bad ones at that. Bad Piggies sounds goofy in its description, but trust us, it has the makings of a very addictive game -- as long as you keep the sound on mute.
Bad Piggies' main menu includes buttons to share your results on various social media channels, and an options menu for controlling the sound and accessing the App Store. We tapped the Play button and were taken to a screen that contained four scenes to choose from: Ground Hog Day, … Read more
Watch out Angry Birds. Those Bad Piggies are hogging in on your territory.
Borrowing from the Bad Piggies game released a couple of weeks ago, the new levels prompt you to build various contraptions to coax the pigs along from start to finish.
The game's Surf and Turf level has also been spruced up with 15 new levels, each with the usual arsenal of sling scopes, king slings, … Read more
Those Bad Piggies may not be so bad if they can soar to the top of the iOS charts in just a few hours.
A brand-new game rarely hits the top spot in Apple's App Store so quickly. But being the latest installment in the hot Angry Birds lineup gives Bad Piggies a strong leg (or hoof) up. Game maker Rovio has gotten a lot of mileage out of Angry Birds, but the company … Read more
When you get a chance to interview Kermit the Frog, you don't pass it up.
Kermit has been the most famous frog in the world for decades. And with the success of his new film, "The Muppets," which has already earned $56 million domestically, he's been making the rounds, sharing his thoughts on everything from meeting presidents to why he never seems to age to what it's like to work alongside his girlfriend, Miss Piggy.
But this is CNET. We wanted Kermit to talk about iPhones. And Twitter. Technology, in other words. We couldn't get the frog who has sung so eloquently about rainbows to tell us how he feels about the most famous double rainbow in the world, or about how often Miss Piggy texts him, but he did dish about his preference for Apple's devices. … Read more
Angry Birds for Android will soon let you pay to get rid of ads, with the currently undisclosed fee charged directly to your phone bill rather than via Google Checkout. The hugely popular game's Finnish developer, Rovio, wants other Android app makers to use its new system too.
Bad Piggy Bank--which will launch in Finland first, and globally next year--will also let players download the Mighty Eagle cheat. As TechCrunch reports, Rovio's Peter Vesterbacka said the company was "not picking on Android particularly, but I think that the payment method up to now has been less than … Read more
