Well now Rovio’s giving you the chance to play from the pig’s perspective. The game, called Bad Piggies appears to be a sort of puzzle-style adventure game. You use a variety of objects to get the pigs to their intended destination and, it seems, wreak a fair amount of havoc along the way.

The new game will launch on iOS, Android and Mac on 27 September. Windows Phone, Windows 8 and PC versions will follow shortly.
