Creators of the cult game Angry Birds, Rovio, has announced 'Bad Piggies', their newest gaming creation flying into town September 27 for iOS, Android and Mac.

This game turns the Angry Birds concept on its head by letting fans play as the green pigs from the gaming sensation - and not a slingshot in sight, say its creators.

Gamers will now get the chance to play as the pigs from the Birds universe, and explore the world through their green eyes.

"There's a lot of empathy towards the lovable enemies from the Angry Birds games, and we've been constantly asked: what about the pigs' side of the story?" said Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio.

There will also be a version for Windows Phone, Windows 8 and PC versions following soon after.

Petri Järvilehto, Rovio Exec VP Games said the gaming gurus "had a lot of fun creating a totally new and unique gameplay experience."

"There's so much more to these pigs than what is seen in the Angry Birds games, and Bad Piggies is the first glimpse into what's going on in the imaginative and ingenious minds of the pigs."
