Angry Birds Rio Beach Volley Update Now Available for iPhone

iOS users, the wait is finally over, the new Angry Birds Rio May update has landed in the App Store and should be showing up on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch at any moment. Special thanks to Adam (the original A. Bird) for bringing it to our attention.

Note, if you are not seeing the update in the updates section on your iOS device there is a way around this. Search for Rio in the App store and simply click “Buy It Now”, even if you’ve already purchased it. The download will start and then it will let you know the update is free because you’ve already purchased a previous version.

Be sure to check out the three-star walkthroughs if you need help on any levels.

Go get it! The update includes:

  • 30 levels in new world named Beach Volley (links to gameplay trailer)
  • The Bomb Bird is unlocked!
  • 15 Hidden Watermelons to find (a list is below; video walkthroughs now online as well)
  • No more labels showing when the next updates to Rio will be released
  • Additional achievements to unlock

List of Golden Melons.

1. 5-2: Send a bird off the right side of the level (not by too much). There will be a small explosion, and a labeled crate will fall from the sky on a swing. Break the chain to get the box to fall and break.

2. 5-5: Blow up the TNT right in front of the slingshot. The melon will end up bouncing around the level and break on its own.

3. 5-11: Labeled box, dead center.

4. 5-13: In the tree, wrapped in something dark green, with a small label on it. The real melon will end up flying across the level and break on its own.

5. 5-14: WAYYYY up in the air is the labeled box. Fling the White Bird as high as possible and drop the bomb right near the top. Tough to aim, but doable.

6. 5-15: The bottom-right square of sand is labeled. Use bombs to clear the way.

7. 6-2: The tuft of grass below the slingshot is labeled. Break that, then the melon will bounce up and down on the inner tube. The timing is tough, but aiming for the inner tube is easiest I think.

8. 6-3: There’s a labeled cardboard box in the bottom right of the level. Knock over the stones to hit the TNT box.

9. 6-4: Labeled box in the bottom right. Take out the front of the level with Blu & Jewel. Then use the Black Bird to take out most of the back of the level. If necessary, use the White Bird to bomb the box.

10. 6-5: The 2nd tuft of grass is labeled. The melon appears, WELL protected, in the trough opposite the beach balls. Thus, with your first shot, take out the suspended sand in front. This will clear alot of structure while making the melon appear. From there, just try to plow you way through.

11. 6-6: Labeled box just to the right of the central valley. Straightforward.

12. 6-7: In the top-left of the structure, in the tuft of grass. (I didn’t see if there was a label to be honest. Got this one by accident.) Straightforward to obtain.

13. 6-9: Labeled box immediately under the slingshot. Fire Blue & Jewel to come up just short of the first umbrella, tap to send them across, and they should go straight back.

14. 6-12: Labeled box in the latter third of the string of umbrellas. Feel free to try to get it with Red Birds, but I can’t reach it that way. However, with the Yellow Bird, a high arching shot will suffice.

15. 6-14: Labeled box in the far bottom right of the level.

I am quite sure that there is no label on the one you got by accident. It is quite straight forward though. The melon is peeking out.

I assume it was sent at the same time as Apple. Just a matter of how long it takes to clear.

Just got to the AppStore and click “buy” on Rio again. I don’t know why it isn’t showing up on the updates, but if you redownload it, you’ll get the new levels.

For FREE. Good to specify :) Thanks for the info.

You are taking away the dates for the other levels? Does that mean you are going to delay them? Come on Rovio.

Rank: Sling God with 28760 points

I doubt it. They just don’t want to deal with the massive amounts of complaining that arose from the May update. No lie, tens of thousands of people posted on Twitter and Facebook on May 1st (until a couple hours ago) complaining about not having the update. I think we can still expect the updates in July, Oct, & Nov.

By ghostface147

Yes that is true. Funny how when Apple says something will be out in say…June, Apple fans expect the end of the month. But for Rovio to say May and not have it done on the 1st? Burn them to the stake!

uhhhhh still not on amazon, i need to get an iphone

By Christina

Loved it some of levels were pretty tricky. But beat all 30 levels within 2hours not complaining I can understand that it takes way more time to make a level than it does to beat one. I wish there were more game center goals and golden levels

No updates on Android Market yet :-(

By fooxoo

Is the game on Mac App Store as well? I already have to wait for my android phone (refuse to get amazon when I can get it on market eventually), but is it not on Mac App Store either??? ….

Waiting for the Rio walkthrough on 5-11, the only level I couldn’t 3-star without help. Took me probably 25 tries to even get 2 stars. I think I 3-starred half the levels the first time I cleared them, but 5-11 is killing me.

It is available for Android in Amazon App Store too. Not in Android Market yet…

Is there some sort of trick to get this to update on the Amazon Appstore? I’ve tried “refresh my apps” many times and it still doesn’t show that there is an update available.

Rank: Flinger with 40 points

I finally got it by removing the appstore and installing it again.

Did they remove the pause screen ads? Or are they not in Rio too? I’ve been avoiding getting Rio (or playing any Angry Birds) until those things are gone.

Oh yeah I didn’t even notice, but they are gone alright.

By Manavee

Is this out for Android within the Amazon App Store? I can’t seem to figure out how to get it. When I search for Angry Birds RIo it shows up, but the only option is to “Open” In which case it opens my un-updated copy of Rio.

By Manavee

Never mind. I figured it out.

What did you have to do?

I noticed on 5-1 when I first opened the game a tiny black object appeared in the bottom right corner, I touched it and it went away. Anyone know what this was? Thanks!

ahhahaha fuji, happy birthday, was it today? (well, yesterday now…)

By mannem

I went through each and every one of the golden fruit things listed above to double-check that I had them all. Which I did. But my scoreboard still shows 14/15. Is that because I don’t have 3 stars on every level yet?

Also: Does anybody know what, if anything, it means when a bird ends up in a non-upright position while it’s still in the slingshot? Sometimes they’re sideways, face-up, face-down. I’ve never noticed a difference, but I’m wondering if there isn’t some mystery to uncover there.

By mannem

Oops. Never mind. I thought I had the one from 5-2, but I didn’t. (When you zoom out, you can see a TNT box on the far right; blowing that up releases the box on a chain.)

Still wondering about those tilted birds, though.

Rank: Sling God with 28760 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Is it 14/15 on every fruit, or one in particular?

The birds twist when they get hit by flying debris. There’s a thread about it in the forum.

Where is the update for the free app?? Disappointed that paid app has the update, but not free app!!

Rank: Pig Leader with 11145 points
By FujiToast (@fujitoast)

The free app is always released a few days after the paid version.

Rank: Sling God with 28760 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Not to sound rude, but I think just the opposite: I think paying customers should get the update before the free app.

By JaiMe

ITS FREE…quit whining already ffs!!! lol …or pay ;)

out of curiosity, is anyone else getting popups of com.amazon.venezia unexpectly stopping/FC? (amazon app store app) happened at least half dozen times or more while playing… {motorola droid}

Haven’t heard it yet. Did you try force-closing both game center and the game? Double-tap home button to bring up multitasking. Hold one icon until – signs show and close GC and the game.

Gamecenter never shows up there cuz i never open it. But it doesnt matter cuz since i posted this it stopped doin it. Thanks for the advice though.

Does anyone know when the Rio leaderboard will be updated to include levels 5 & 6? The leaderboards are such a good tool for finding where I can find extra points. That “off Avg By” column is the greatest!
