Angry Birds Rio Update for Golden Beachball Episode Now Available!

We announced a few weeks ago that Rovio was working on both Space and Rio updates. The update for Space was more obvious what would be included, but the Rio update was a bit more vague since only one achievement was leaked. This morning, we need to wonder no more, as Angry Birds Rio v1.7.0 is now available for iOS, PC, Mac, and Android via Google Play and the Amazon Appstore!

PC and Mac users: We have a separate post for this release, since so much was added in the PC update!

This update features a major overhaul of the graphical user interface, so let’s not waste any more time. This update includes:

  • 15 new levels in the Golden Beachball episode! We have had reports that this episode is now automatically unlocked on all platforms. (Previously, you had to manually unlock these levels, and the method varied by device.)
  • 15 golden cherries to be found! Note that the cherries are scattered across all 30 levels of the episode, so be sure to back-track looking for them. Our golden fruit walkthroughs will help you find them.
  • Six bonus levels!
    • One level each for earning 30, 50, and 70 stars in the episode.
    • One level for earning 10 feathers in the episode.
    • A fish trophy for 3-starring passing all 30 levels of the episode. (Thanks @josm for the correction.)
    • A cherry trophy for obtaining all 15 fruit in the episode.
  • One new achievement for iOS.
  • As we said, there’s been a major graphical overhaul. The first changes you see are to the app icon, loading splash screen, and episode selection screens. They look a bit more slick and sleek now.
  • The Trophy Room (or Awards Room) has been removed. All bonus levels now appear within the episode they pertain to, at the top of the screen. Note that the total score that appears on the episode selection screen only counts the basic 30 levels. It does not include any bonus or trophy levels, meaning they match ABN’s leaderboards.
  • Also, the background for all Golden Beachball levels are now unique, instead of derived from the Beach Volley episode.
  • Pro Tip! The blue fish trophies scattered through the 15 levels are worth 3,000 points!

As always, please do NOT enter Power Up scores on our Leaderboards. Please note also that Angry Birds Rio includes no score distinction between Power Up and “pure” scores whatsoever, so for the recreational PU user, be mindful of your usage and score entry here. Suspicious scores will have to be removed, unfortunately.

As this update lands for other platforms, we’ll be interested to hear how episode availability is affected. And we’d love to hear from the community as well!

So, with the Trophy Room levels being moved, is this going to mean that the leaderboard will reflect the move, or will it remain the same?

@TruckDriver We haven’t had a chance to discuss this yet. There are 2 things to discuss:

(1) Should the “Trophy Room” leaderboard be pushed into “Bonus”?
(2) Should the “Trophy Room” walkthroughs be re-categorized into their respective episodes?

My two cents: since the Bonus levels and Trophy Room levels are now all on the episode pages the leaderboard should reflect that. Like how the bonus levels on Space are listed at the end of those episodes.

No, this will NOT be done. The app itself does not count these levels in episode total score, so nor will we.

I keep getting the option for a free TNT drop about every third time I reset a level. Assuming that this constitutes a power up and have declined the offer each time. I could see this as throwing a monkey wrench into the leaderboards as new users may not see the distinction. Am guessing that this is also available on existing Rio levels, which could change scoring significantly.

Me too @burbman !
I’ve used it just the once to see what it does, but I don’t think it’s a PU as such as I have those switched off, but I can see how it might affect scoring on the ABN leaderboards – @AMSlimfordy?
(nb. I’ve not had the chance to check the other episodes/levels yet!)

I also have notifications turned off, so not quite understanding why I’m getting the tnt drop pop-up thing; as you say, it appears about every three resets, so it does tend to affect the flow of play, as well as being quite irritating don’t you think?

Rank: Sling God with 28760 points

TNT drop has been a Rio Power Up since their inception.

Odd that it should be in the form of a pop-up, and not on the pu scroll bar, which as previously stated, I have turned off.
As such, and as burbman stated, with it being this way, it could well throw a monkey wrench into the leaderboards.
Something to consider perhaps @AMSlimfordy ?

I stand corrected @AMSlimfordy – my apologies!
I have my scroll bar closed and therefore just assumed they were turned off.
In other AB apps there is of course the option to turn PU’s off completely via the opening page settings button, not yet an option in ABR though. :(

I just replayed Beachball 1-15 & got a random pop-up for Samba Burst, so I’m presuming now that as we play Rio on the variety of devices & platforms we all use that we’re going to see these pop-up options to use a PU even though we haven’t selected the PU icon.

THank God I was about done with Rio anyway, as the PUPU is intolerable! Will PUPUs become standard for all AB games? Now there is a nightmare scenario. Rovio, if you are reading, please at least make it an option to turn pop ups off.

I agree. The popup is extremely annoying. I don’t use PUs, but every once in a while, I click the use button instead of the X, and I have to reload the game before playing.

I hope Rovio is reading his. Please give us the option of turning off PUs in Rio and, I think Space is the other game that I can’t turn them off.

I let my 4 year old nephew play the other game where you can’t turn them off once when we were at a restaurant, and found that he had purchased a bunch of PUs without knowing that he was costing me money.

When I hit the package, I received one power up of what seemed a random selection, free gift is sponsored by the National Geographic Angry Birds book through Amazon, and when I clicked on the box, it took me to the Amazon site to purchase the book.

@amslimfordy I had the ad-free version from Amazon, then for some reason installed the one from the PlayStore. I think it was to get an update that was late on the Amazon store.

Yesterday I updated the Playstore one, but hated the ads, so this morning I installed the Amazon version, and it kept all my progress. It seems you can go back and forth between them without losing anything, but of course, to be safe, always backup.

@78rpm
If you turn ‘off’ your Wi-Fi connection ‘before’ opening the Rio app (or any of the other AB apps for that matter!), this generally gets rid of the adverts within the game, and makes for a much more pleasing gaming experience. Turning the notifications off via the settings button on the opening screen will also eliminate some other general annoyances. ;)

Another comment that can be moved to the appropriate walkthrough when available:
TD on level 27 — I’m amazed at how much is left when you get TD; I’m sure I’ve had less without getting it. Clear off left side and blue fish; leave sardine can on lower left rock. Eagle takes out most of right side except for left section of right structure, but you get TD anyway!

@Surfcow, I like the new acronym for this new gift from Rovio? PUPU for Power Up Pop Up.

In AB:SW, there are some levels where you want to “Bloat” Han (the red bird) and not use his light sabre. I thought that it was annoying that the game (i.e. Rovio) would keep reminding me that he has a light sabre that I can use, but this PUPU is MUCH MORE annoying.

The PUPU and the lack of score distinction in RIO makes me wonder what’s going on at that division. Seems like they are not in contact with the rest of the world.

I just discovered the Rio update tonight when I looked up the Challenge of the Day. To me the new graphics are even more “cartoonish” than before,but I can live with that. What is bugging the crap out of me is that the moment I launch a bird,my previous score in the upper right corner of the screen disappears. I also don’t get to see my current score as it accumulates. Instead,I now have to wait until I get rid of all the marmosets ,or run out of birds,to see my new score. I hope Rovio puts the scores back the way they were.
Just for the record,this is happening on my android-based tablet. I haven’t opening Rio on my PC yet.

@meanguy No problems here with your score issue, im playing also on android tablet, maybe restart your device otherwise send rovio a support ticket

By Morph416

I have seen this on my android S3.. but this is related to the ads that I receive.

I have to say, the ads are getting far more aggressive (not quite as aggressive as Seasons) and instead of the scores going below the ads like they used to, they are now blocked by them and you cannot see unless you press pause and hope the ad quits. If the ad remains during the level, you won’t know your score even after you finish the level, it just goes to the star screen.

Thanks @josm & Morph416 for replying.This problem does seem to be related to the ads that drop down in the upper right corner of the screen.Today I found the same problem while replaying the Golden Beachball level.More than half the time,I have to wait for the level I’m playing to end to see my score.On the rare times when no ad is present,the score is easy to see. Maybe Rovio will fix this with their next update…or it’s a plot to get me to pay for ad-free games.

@AMslimfordy Well, today is Rio challenge day again. And as usual PUPU is getting on my nerves (understatement). You, along with everyone on the Nest, know the importance of getting the first shot right. So, if it fails, we go back and aim again and again. But we’re rudely interrupted and put off our stroke by the infuriating PUPU.
Now, this is an ad-free game. Furthermore, if we want powerups all we have to do is say so by using the lightning flash. This pop-up is therefore redundant to the game and is, quite simply, AN AD! It would be great if you could put in a good word with Rovio about this on behalf of the many ABN members who have complained. Thanks.
