Angry Birds Rio Timber Tumble Now Available! Plus a Secret Episode Hidden Harbor! (Updated for PC)

We told you it was coming and here it is! The Angry Birds Rio Timber Tumble and Hidden Harbor (v2.2.0) update is now available for iOS, Mac, and Android via Google Play and the Amazon Appstore. More are likely platforms coming soon.

PC Update: This update landed on 9 September for PC!

This update includes:

  • 20 new levels in the new Timber Tumble episode and 15 in Hidden Harbor (more below)! Beware of logging equipment, or use it to your advantage! Our walkthrough videos are live if you need help
  • Golden Gears! There are 10 to find hidden throughout the 20 normal levels. If you need help, consult our videos!
  • 6 bonus levels! Unlock these by earning 30, 40, and 50 stars; collecting all Golden Gears; and earning 7 and 15 feathers (mobile only). We have walkthroughs for the bonus levels as well.
  • Better Blu! Instead of flailing about, Blu now serves as a target for his feathery friends. Summon the wrath of the flock! (Also available as a new Power Up.)
  • Want a Tip? If you reset a particular level a few times, you are prompted to receive an in-game tip! First one is free, more requires watching an ad or paying with Power Ups.
  • 1 new iOS achievement for completing the episode.
  • The Rio Leaderboard is ready for your scores. But remember, Power Up scores are NOT permitted on ABN Leaderboards. This includes the Playground episode.

Hidden Harbor

As we mentioned above this update also includes a bonus episode called Hidden Harbor! 15 super secret levels (walkthrouhgs here), which we announced yesterday.

Obtain the “Golden Lock” Hidden in Timber Tumble

Can you find the Golden Lock? We did! (Thanks @josm and @DH-Kim) It’s in-game somewhere, and if you find it… BOOM! New episode unlocked! If you just can’t wait watch the video above and all will be revealed. You can also view our, “How to Unlock Angry Birds Rio Hidden Harbor Episode” here. Hidden Harbor walkthrough videos are found here.

level 20 is bugged for mac, have a score of 306,000 and still only 1 star. i have 3 starred all other levels. this is the only one that has a problem. i have a screenshot how do i post it?

Not bugged at all @acuraice. Your score is just too low.

now i have managed to get 309,090 and still only one star even with 2 birds left. This level is ridiculous. I have 3 starred all levels including bonus levels for both episodes, only level 20 is giving me headaches

Still too low @acuraice. I can guarantee it’s not a bug though. I have 3 stars on that level — with a score of 360,960.

”Golden Gears

Collect all 10 Golden Gears in Timber Tumble. (Weren’t you going to do that anyways?) Then defeat the Bonus Level that’s unlocked by collecting those gears! BOOM! New episode unlocked!

Blu-Ray Insert

If you can’t collect all 10 gears and defeat the corresponding Bonus Level, or if you just want to play Hidden Harbor now, there’s an alternative. We believe there is a unique code included in each Blu-Ray copy of “Rio 2″, in stores now. Enter this code on the front screen of Angry Birds Rio and BAM! New episode unlocked!”

no, not at all @AMslimfordy you dont have to collect the 10 items at all, or complete the level to unlock episode, just find the golden lock, hidden in level .. in the 20 timber tumble levels :)

Some of the golden gears are very difficult to collect. Not sure if I know where they all are, but haven’t made an inventory yet.

@amslimfordy: I guess scores obtained with “call the flock” are considered as power-up scores.

Attention: when you play level 3 for the first time, the first bird is automatically replaced by the “meet the flock” blue bird!

Rank: Sling God with 27845 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

@chriss Yes, I agree. In Level 3, if you reset you are no longer prompted.

Tons of points on these levels! I thought I had good scores on some but they weren’t even 3 star worthy. I’ve got over 300k on level 20 and that’s only 1 star! Some new gameplay updates too. Good upgrade again on Rio!

Rank: Gold Flinger with 8255 points
By JLZ-666 (@jlz-666)

Well that’s soul destroying @dmsral! Some of these levels are pretty hard to 3* I’m hopelessly stuck with 1* on both 16 & 20. Can’t for the life of me think how to increase on 20. I’m currently at 275k and now you tell me 300k is still 1*? *sob* Surely we don’t have to use a PU blue bird? Ooooh I’m feeling for the @Admin that has to do the walkthrough vids today ;) Overall though great gameplay and a few think outside the box moments!

Profile photo of dmsralRank: Gold Flinger with 8060 points
By dmsral (@dmsral)

Up to 239k on 16 for two stars. Had one chance at a two birder but collateral damage was weak. A combination of timing and a magic Matilda shot for 3 stars is my best guess.

Tripping the switches early on 20 looks to be the key, still at 1 star so there’s obviously some cleverness I’m missing.

Rank: Avian Overlord with 17375 points
By MVNLA2 (@mvnla2)

Level 16: 3* at 255840, possibly lower. Matilda low arc to drop bomb in center of upper left platform. This lowers both bridges. Not sure what I did next (sorry). I think maybe Hal to push upper tractor to left across bridge and drops on detonator sending lower tractor to right to finish off.

Exactly how mine finally went down for 252k @mvnla2. Wasn’t having much luck with the sharp turn needed but got there finally. @dmsral I think we’ll all kick ourselves when level 20 is solved ;)

Haahaaaa! @amslimfordy has done it @dmsral! 360k for 3 star! I guess we’ll just have to wait for the vid,I just can’t work it out. Nice one Slim ;D

Rank: Master Slinger with 6210 points
By Chris (@chriss)

Me too. 352k. 3 stars.

In most levels the gap between 2* and 3* is like 5k. So either you find the right solution and have 3*, or you don’t have the right solution and have 1*, but you rarely ever have 2*.

@xebic88: That was basically the level 20 strategy I came up with, however, @amslimfordy‘s strategy has an improvement on the third bird. I used it to capture 1st place (for the moment) at 364770.

well done @dmsral ,lol, even when u get the shots right it quite often chooses to run u shy by a few hundred ,i think 3 stars is 348700/800 or something unexpected

Thanks for the Bluray heads up… I was about to go and buy it today, because I wanted those levels. Think I’ll wait a bit, seeing as my main platform is… well. But, seeing the post, you’re only speculating at this point.. as to whether or not there’s a code with it?

Anywhoo… nice to see more added to Rio, cannot wait to play!!

Once again, just like the Short Fuse powerup. Placing the new powerup right below the pause button is stupid.
Get the feeling it’s intended like that so people will accidently touch it and waste powerups and hopefully buy more.

Is this the last update?.Because they said there will be 4 episodes tied to rio 2 and this is the fourth one.

By Kelani (@kelani)

@ahmadathar My guess is this is the last planned update. Hopefully there will be a few bugfix releases. As far as new content, if enough people are playing it, they could always decide to be nice and add another episode. I bet they’d also add one if Rio 3 is made.

Love the design of these new levels, but sadly as @cams said, the call of the flock button is stupidly placed underneath the pause button

You can also use “call the flock” in Rio 1 levels, but I think the tips only work in Rio 2 episodes.

In what levels would I be able to Call the flock????

Profile photo of KelaniRank: Fling King with 4760 points
By Kelani (@kelani)

@ammutt-22 You can technically use it anywhere, but it’d be a powerup score, and not eligible for entry on the leaderboards. There’s one exception:

Levels #1 and #2, Blu is the permanent 1st bird. Using that one is OK
Level #3 Blu is made the 1st bird the FIRST time you play the level. After that, Red takes his place. I don’t think a decision has been made on this level yet.

Basically, anytime you use the CTF button beneath the Pause button, it’s a powerup score, and not allowed on the boards.

@AMslimfordy – I can confirm that there isnt a secret code inside the new Rio2 blu-ray movie.I just purchased the new Rio2 movie on blu-ray and it just says:
“SECRET CLUE! There’s a secret hidden in lev 14! Hit the right spot with the right bird and unlock 15 NEW RIO LEVELS on your iPhone, iPad and Android! Can you find it? Available on IOS anf Android only.”
I can take a picture and upload to my album if u need me to. Just let me know.

@All Just so you know, If you buy a Tip by watching an Ad or using powerups, then a few turns later you get another Want Tip? prompt on the same level. Don’t bother. It’s the same tip.

It’s also a great way to dispose of all those dozens of PU gifts that’ve been raining down the last two days. I’ve always ignored them, as I suspect most people do, but now that I know they’re worth 3k points, I’m gonna treat them more like hazardous waste.

Just confirmed: The Double-counted birds bug (aka DCB) still exists in Rio v2.2.0 That’s really disappointing, since we provided Rovio everything they need to fix it two months ago. The worst part is being unable to tell people how to avoid it, without teaching them how to cause it.
