Angry Birds Rio Smugglers Plane Update Now Available

The latest update to the Angry Birds Rio (v1.4.0) is now available for iOS, Nokia, PC, and Android via the Amazon AppStore and Android Market, with other platforms coming soon. As the leaked images showed, this update takes place inside of Marcel’s plane and is aptly named, “Smugglers’ Plane”. The leaderboard and walkthroughs are live.

This update includes:

  • 15 new levels in Chapter 11 with Chapter 12 labeled, “Coming Soon”.
  • New hidden fruits in the form of Mangoes (seven hidden throughout Chapter 11).
  • New achievements to be unlocked (iOS only). Many are “hidden” achievements, so be sure to check out our list.
  • Boomerang Bird is now unlocked and he is ready to take his revenge on the smugglers!
  • Pro tip! Try to hit the luggage. It’s worth 5,000 points!

Bug fixes:

  • The most notable bug fix is the Carnival Upheaval 8-5 threshold bug (iOS only). The minimum 3-star score has been re-confirmed at 65,000.
  • The current status of the Stellarvore issue has been verified by a Rovio developer. He said, “Stellarvore will be available when all the levels are released and available :)”.

Helpful links:

  • Video walkthroughs for Chapter 11 are live.
  • Video walkthroughs for Golden Mangoes are available.
  • The leaderboards are live, so come compete with some of the best! Also, let us know how you like the new leaderboard format!

We will keep this post updated the update lands on more platforms. But for now, please enjoy these complimentary screenshots:

Fantastic news, even though I will have to wait a bit for Android and PC updates. Thanks for keeping us up to date. Happy Thanksgiving to all :).

Big is Beautiful ( big red bird ) and Blue Giant ( 310 stars ) Achievements were unlocked with this update on my end. I suppose some sort of bug prevented us from unlocking them previously.

By Chris

It was not a bug. They just did not exist before.

I’m kinda afraid of updating the game by now cause there is no guaranty Rovio didn’t fix 10-15. Maybe you could give me some feedback on that!

I’m not sure about that, but 8-5 is now fixed, so that might be a trade off! :) oh and it looks like it is 65000 as 64730= 2 stars, 65970= 3 stars :)

So happy :D
Fingers crossed for update of PC.

By Morph416

The first 15 levels of Airfield Chase were released in Aug, (posted here on the 18th of Aug).. and the final 15 levels released in Oct (posted here on the 3rd of Oct). The PC version wasn’t released until this Nov (posted here on the 9th of Nov).

If Rovio duplicates this planned released cycle for the “last” of Rio… to the PC… it won’t be until possibly March of next year before PC / Mac sees the last chapter.

I am with you guys on this.. as I really hope they don’t keep us waiting another four months to finish this version of AB, specially if they plan on closing Rio with Smuggler’s Plane as the final chapter.

By iamMighty (@iammighty)

You could be wrong though, the reason why the Rio update was late was because Rovio was working on Seasons for PC, and who knows the ME might be released too?

I really dont think this would be the of Rio though, more bonus levels or something maybe.

By Morph416

I am hoping that I am wrong! I would love to see all platforms get this final chapter in full by the end of December.

Rank: Sling God with 28790 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Mac and PC only receive full episodic updates. When the first 15 levels are released is irrelevant in the timing.

By Morph416

I was only using that as an example of when the 15 level sections were released with the prior chapter, and the time in between before it was a complete set for the mobile versions. As stated, I truly hope this is not the case with the final.

By BirdBrain

Good news – the three star rating has been restored on CU-8-5! I had 73,660.

Also, looks like the mango fruit came out of nowhere. Thought it was supposed to be grapes?

Happy Gaming!

I bet once the millionaire achievement becomes visible most people won’t be able to get it since they probabally don’t know about the hidden level.

Hidden level?

Maybe he means the Golden Beachball levels.

It’s a fruit, and a tough one to get … still working on it lol

Try with an egg.

You have to drop the egg on top of the white birds then it bounces onto the fruit, at least thats how I ended up getting it…

Profile photo of laurafjRank: Master Slinger with 6245 points

Drop the bomb the instant the white bird clears the platform. The egg/bomb will hit the ground but the force of the explosion should free the fruit.

Once you use the first bird, bounce the second bird’s egg off the last bird, and when the last bird gets in the slingshot, the egg will drop on the ground right above the fruit, and pop it.

I hope that orange birds is going to be unlocked.

And have to wait for pc update

By Chris

I don’t think that there will be any news about Stellarvore with this update, cos it’s not possible to get all stars while chapter 12 is still missing.

By Rob

I have 60/65 acheivements, including Stellarvore. The other 5 acheivements are not yet listed on my board.

By Chris

I think 7 mangoes is the maximum in this update.

Anyone else get the popup achievement for getting something like 310 stars but not have it appear in GC? Also, I somehow received the achieved for unlocking Big Brother but he definitely wasn’t in this update. Anyone get anything similar?

Rank: Sling God with 28790 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

The 310 stars should appear in GC at the very end, but it may take a couple minutes to show up.

Big Brother achievement is new, although he was unlocked in a previous update. No problem with that really.

By Chris

It’s only for us who had installed previous versions.
But someone who buys the game now will get the Big Bro achievement when he unlocks Big Brother, I guess.

By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Mac and PC do not seem to receive half-episode updates. These platforms will receive the full episode after the second half is released for mobile devices, so it will be a little time yet.

It’s looking pretty cool. I started playing, and got a pleasant surprise when I hit one of the red fire extinguisher canisters. They act like the TNT boxes, with fairly decent eplosive results.

There was this 1 level, I think level 11-14, where I kept failing. After like 10 times, using the same method, I got three stars

somehow i got the achievement for finding all mangoes?!

Profile photo of sal9Rank: Avian Overlord with 18160 points
By sal9 (@sal9)

logically I would say one for finishing the episode ( 30 levels ), one for all three stars and one for score addict.
The others are open to speculation.

you got the mango achievement ? could it be the fruit salad for getting one of each fruit ?

The last one will probabely be for collecting 15 mangoes.

By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

I think there will still be another achievement added before final release, but based on how I can see it:

1) Unlock Jewel (alone)
2) Multi-Millionaire (though I’m not sure of the actual point value; 25M is too high)
3-6) Mangoes / Finish / 3-star / Score Addict for Smugglers’ Plane

stellarvore achievement hasn’t unlocked for me yet.
not sure if it stands for all levels 3 stared or all episodes 3 stared.

I think to unlock stellavore you have 3 starred all levels at the end of episode (for example in Rio, 2-15, 4-15, etc.)

Yup he’s right on this one, checked the game directory and found the final cutscence.
But they just escape in time before they die

My proof is in the angry birds wiki smugglers plane page.

Rank: Sling God with 28790 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

You’re statement isn’t quite right. The final cutscene shows the pigs, but saying “the pigs will be crashed by the plane” doesn’t make sense.

The final cutscene shows Marcel’s plane crashing; the Angry Birds huddling around their eggs, safe and sound, with the pigs lurking in the background; and the pigs gathered around the eggs. (The order in which the images appear is not clear, so the order of events will be interesting.)

It’s also available on symbian using in game update (a massive surprise for it to be available on the same day as other platforms…we normally have to wait for weeks!!!).

Rank: Sling God with 28790 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

If you are running the standalone from Rovio, it does not entitle you to updates from AppUp. Also, that update on AppUp is likely the Airfield Chase update, which landed on S/O weeks ago.

man i guess i’m too obsessed with angry birds. i already 3-starred these levels, got the mighty eagle, and all the fruit. and that was all yesterday…..the day the update came out. now i have nothing to do.

did you get the stellarvore achievement? it’s the one where if you get three stars on all levels you get it.

nope and its not even showing up as an achievement i don’t have in gamecenter either. i guess i don’t have everything done then.
