    Our sister site TouchArcade got an early peek at Bad Piggies, the contraption-focused addition to the Angry Birds-universe. The game has the Pigs building grand contraptions to steal eggs away from the birds.

    The game will arrive sometime tomorrow for the iPhone, iPad and Mac. Historically, Rovio has released games at midnight Pacific time.

    They should have called it Angry Pigs

    Perhaps they should delay it to make it fit the iPhone 5 screen.

    Indeed, is it iPhone 5 compatible?

    I'm sure it plays on 5 just fine, but if it supports the new screen size, they chose not to show it with this video.

    Honestly I hate Angry Birds, I've tried playing it many times, just couldn't get into it.. This looks like it might be better..

    Totally the opposite of me. I don't much like mobile games but Angry Birds is what I enjoyed the most. This one looks awfully clumsy to me. I won't be getting it.

    Looks entertaining. I'm just glad they put a different twist on it and having the player create ways to move the pig.

    Looks great. Interesting to see if it's going to be another smash hit for Rovio.

    I don't understand what's the infatuation with these games. I always thought the best independent application released for the iPhone was smule (the ocarina app).

    I remember one of the first videos they showed for this game, showed a 16:9 ratio video, so I believe it should be fine on the iPhone 5. I can't remember where I saw that video though.

    Looks interesting. I usually love Angry Birds games, but often don't get around to finishing them.. so I'll probably pass on this even though it's a bit different.

    I end up doing the same thing on Angry Birds... never end up finishing them. But I'll probably buy this one too and not finish it as well. :p

    I suspect I will as well.. since it'll only be a buck or two (I imagine). :eek:

    Well then, this changes everything. I'll buy it if its full screen on iPhone 5.

    This is it.

    Releasing the app without iPhone 5 support would be a huge oversight. Rovio is smarter than that.

    I bet they'll release both this and an update for Angry Birds to fit the screen of the iPhone 5.

    Thanks macrumors for advertising another subpar app on the FRONT PAGE. How much did they pay you? It's not even an iPhone exclusive game.

    How can they have not released it iPhone 5 ready? Makes no sense at all.
