Angry Birds Friends Update Adds Pig Tales, Easter Egg Raffle, and New Power-Up!

Pig Tale Mushbloom
Good morning, Angry Birds enthusiasts! A very rare Wednesday update has landed, as Angry Birds Friends v1.11 is now available on Facebook! This update was teased by Rovio a few days ago, and we guessed it would be something Easter related. However, we will get to that lower down.

This update includes:

  • Pig Tales, a brand new, never before seen, Facebook-exclusive episode with 15 levels. It looks like more levels will come in future updates, but the if and when is still not known. Walkthroughs are being produced as we speak, and will appear in our Facebook category when completed.
  • 1 new Power Up, called “Mushbloom”. This seems to be an episode-exclusive Power Up, only useable within Pig Tales (similar to the Wingman, who can only be used in Tournaments). You are given a few Mushblooms to try it out (I received 1 :( Others have received upwards of 6), and can purchase more with in-game coins. The in-game description reads: “Create a mighty bloom of mushrooms beneath the pigs and topple their towers!”
  • New block type: Orbs! These are first seen in Level 1 of Pig Tales. Actually, they are seen in the cutscene before Level 1, if you want to be picky. When broken, the magical orb will cause nearby blocks to levitate for a few seconds, then fall back toward the ground. Sort of like the Pink bird in some respects.

Easter Egg Hunt and Raffle

Pig Tale Egg Hunt Raffle
Easter Eggs are scattered all around the Pig Tales episode. Hundreds of Eggs! The Angry Birds are going crazy with overwhelming excitement, and it’s your job to catch…. well, a lot of them.

First, the details.

  • Open any level of Pig Tales and you will see a few Easter Eggs scattered around the level. To get credit for an Egg, you must break it and pass the level.
  • The Eggs will then be added to your “Today basket” in the bottom-right corner. You can collect up to 20 Eggs per day. (The “day” seems to start around… 8pm Eastern, 5pm Pacific? We will try to firm up those details.)
  • 20 Eggs per day from 27 March through 10 April = 280 Eggs max!
  • Each Egg collected is 1 entry into Rovio’s raffle. There will be over 100 prizes available, including a grand prize: The 20-inch Mighty Eagle plush!

Now, we would love, love, love to provide a guide for these Eggs. But we can’t. The spawn-point of the Eggs is random. The Eggs are easy to obtain. And simply restarting any level, even if you already defeated it, will spawn new Eggs. So, we’ll just say this for our official guide:

To obtain Easter Eggs, play Pig Tales!

It’s as easy as that.

It appears to be (according to T&C). The only restriction (that I see) is 13+ years of age.

I’m really happy to see new levels and have an interesting new power-up. It would be really nice if Rovio also explained other prizes.

They do. See the Terms & Conditions. All prizes are listed.

Note that in the ending cutscene it says: to be continued… Maybe more updates with more levels will come soon?

Rank: Master Slinger with 5660 points
By Chris (@chriss)

Yes, that’s what “to be continued” means. That there will be more levels. But how soon, we don’t know.

Did you know that the stars from Green Day still count toward the total amount of stars?

You can do all 20 eggs in one level? is that a bug? if i restart the level i can collect eggs again, and it counts too

Rank: Sling God with 26970 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

This is answered in the post.

And simply restarting any level, even if you already defeated it, will spawn new Eggs.

sorry, thanks for answer, did’nt read the full post yet

By Rob and Lucas

Except that the total should be out of 20 nop? It goes to 4/20 and then even after finishing all levels, on every level goes up to 5/20 6/20 or 7/20 then resets to 4/20.

Rank: Sling God with 26970 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Maybe contacting Rovio would be a better course of action. I haven’t seen any issues.

By Rob and Lucas

How come the eastere ggs collecst resets to 4/20 aftere very level, even when you collect 3 in a level.

Rank: Sling God with 26970 points

You have to beat the level.

In the video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpXys_9uGIM&list=UUYC2wjLop-S6Ld4raeoUVNA&index=1) it says: limited time. Is that for the whole episode or only the egg hunt?

It’s a good thing this Facebook update happened, at least now I’m not so bored anymore, but I’ll tell you something, I blew $20 on those Mushrooms and so far they’ve been a disappointment, not what I expected. May as well stick to the regular PU’s. I hope Rovio makes this a regular multi-episodic chapter as part of Seasons.

By Jan

I couldn’t find any egg. Probably not available for european people like myself. Too bad…

Appears to be worldwide, especially since Rovio is based in Finland.

Should Rovio add Pigini Beach to the iOS Angry Birds?

Rank: Sling God with 26970 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

I don’t think so. I would rather have original content.

Rank: Master Slinger with 5660 points
By Chris (@chriss)

My opinion is: no. I don’t want to play the same levels again on iOS. I prefer new levels on iOS.

Avatar of AmanRank: Out of this World with 2550 points

@AMslimfordy Well, do you think this new episode Pig Tales will come to ABO as a new update in future ?

Rank: Sling God with 26970 points

I hope it won’t. But I have no information.

Have the eggs and egg counter disappeared for anyone else? I just went back to get my last round of twenty and they’re gone. I’m curious if they’re gone gone, or just momentarily gone due to a glitch.

Yeah, it looks like they ended the promotion a day early.

I have this same issue.

I believe the collection period has ended.
