Rovio Entertainment on Thursday unleashed its Angry Birds sequel, Bad Piggies on the world.

The game, available on iTunes for $0.99 (iPhone version) and $2.99 (iPad version) and free on Google Play, is billed as "an all new game from the pigs' point of view."

The release comes as Rovio battles the perception that the firm is a one-hit wonder, solely reliant on Angry Birds. However, the company's last non-avian title, Amazing Alex has so far failed to wow critics and fans.

Since launching in 2009, Angry Birds has been downloaded more than 1 billion times, producing about $122.1 million in revenues for the company in 2011, about a third of which came from licensing and merchandising.
