I was really excited when I received the Angry Birds King Pig Toy as a present, so I went to try it out right away, but lo and behold, it does not work on an iPad mini.

The idea with this toy is you use it to tap the screen inside the Angry Birds game, this has the effect of changing the game mode, there are a few modes available:
  • King Pig - the birds turn into pigs and the pigs turn into eggs
  • Material Mix-Up! - the game will switch some materials in the game
  • Bird Frenzy! - you will have unlimited birds
  • Total Destruction! - you have to complete the level by tapping it to cause small explosions


Certainly a fun addition to the original game, but since it fails to work on the iPad mini, is a complete waste.


Now I did try out the King Pig on an iPad 2, and that works! You just tap the pig on the screen, which brings up a different game mode.

After tapping again, it's possible to switch to a different game mode. I hope this is fixed on the mini soon.
