Rovio has revealed and released an interactive Bad Piggies
cookbook app, now available on iPad at 99 cents for a limited time. Titled Bad Piggies Best Egg Recipes
, the app's regular price is $4.99. That's a significant leap from the promotional offer. However, compared to the $14.99 RRP of last year's physical version
from which the app is adapted, it's a significant drop.
So, just in case you needed Angry Birds
to invade some other part
of your formerly Angry Birds-less culture, now there's an interactive cookbook. Although outside of sharing photos of your dishes on social media and setting an in-app egg timer, the interactivity is limited to pressing on the occasional illustration and seeing a brief animation. That's the same shtick early 90s CD-ROM games used, but at least it's better than just making a book digital.
The app contains 41 egg recipes, graded in difficulty, with simple step-by-step instructions. You may scoff, but when you consider how many people have downloaded the Angry Birds
and Bad Piggies
games, the potential success of this app really is no yolk. [You're in for a real beating over this line. - Ed.]
