Angry Birds Seasons Abra-Ca-Bacon Update Out Now!

“Hoccus Porkus” and “Open Swine-same” only begin to describe this morning’s release, as Abra-Ca-Bacon has been released as v3.3.0 of Angry Birds Seasons! The update has landed for iOS, Mac, PC, Kindle, Nook, and Android via Google Play and the Amazon Appstore, with more platforms coming very soon. This marks the first release by Rovio’s Stockholm studio, which you can read more about in Rovio’s press release.

PC users: Please see our separate post for additional details about obtaining this update.

This is a pretty exciting update, so let’s get right into it. This update includes:

  • 30 new levels centered around the magical, summertime experience of the circus. Walkthroughs are already being recorded and should be live soon. If you need help, our walkthrouhgs are live
  • 6 bonus levels! Star-based bonus levels are unlocked at 30, 50, and 70 stars accrued in the episode; Feather-based bonus level is unlocked at 10. There’s one Golden Egg hidden in-game (we aren’t going to say where quite yet, but keep an eye out!), and the Big Juggling Pins level will unlock by 3-starring all 30 levels. Walkthroughs available here.
  • New portal element! If you have played Cut the Rope or PORTALS, you have an idea of how this works. If anything passes into one portal, it comes out of the matching-colored portal somewhere else in the level. The first few levels of Abra-Ca-Bacon will get you used to the concept.
  • New power-up! Called “Allaka-BAM”, the Power Up places three TNT crates around the level to help your birdies blast the piggies!
  • Two new achievements for iOS! This is very unexpected. We’ve been saying that GameCenter reached it’s limit, which wasn’t quite true. Before today, Seasons had used 980 out of 1000 points; this update adds 16 more points, which means there’s still a tiny bit of room left.
  • Pro Tips! Juggling pins are worth 3000 points, and gold tokens are worth 1000 points!
  • In-game Power Up distinction! Yes, now your in-game “High Score” will differentiate your best score with and best score without use of Power Ups, similar to Angry Birds Space. It’s what we have really wanted since the inception of Power Ups into the apps, and we are grateful to Rovio for heeding our request. Thanks guys!

Helpful links and notes:

  • Abra-Ca-Bacon 3-star walkthroughs are live soon.
  • Abra-Ca-Bacon Total Destruction walkthroughs will take more time. Check out our other videos in case you get stuck; we have most levels of Seasons, and all levels released over the past year or so.
  • The leaderboards are also live. Remember that scores obtained with Power Ups are not permitted on our leaderboards.
  • Bug Fix: Some users were having issues with 3-star “Big Items” remaining locked, despite obtaining 3-stars on all levels. According to Rovio, this should be fixed in this update (v3.3.0). We are looking to confirm.

This update are actually the best thing in ABSe! Anyone realized matilda’s egg can shoot in portals? I wonder if OB’s fat form can fit in portals…

It seems like the scoreboard in Game Center does not recognize the update. I see nothing which looks like “In-game Power Up distinction”. And also the level rank is not working, only my total score adds up.
Already rebooted twice my iPad.
Has anyone else the same problems or an advice how to fix it?

@trishohara GameCenter is maxed out on LBs. No changes can be made.

Should be able to just fine. Set any score using PUs (I recommend wasting as many birds as possible at the end, so you just have a 1-star score, if you don’t like them). When you play the level again, that score won’t show up until you select a PU.

I mean on the level selection screen. The planets in AB Space are marked with a sign once you used a power-up in the particular level. Is it the same here? If yes, I won’t try any power-up.

@nurrutia — Welcome to the nest! If you’re retired, you’re probably old enough to join the Seniors Forum. You might also enjoy stopping by the Bloated Pig Forum. P.S. If you just retired, you’re no way the oldest on the nest.

Hi @nurrutia, I’m 60, and started with Pong, before the Atari. In those days, there were so many Atari games, I thought we would never need anything more.

When I was in high school, the computer room was one room with a huge computer that only was capable of doing the report cards, and we thought that was high tech. Things sure have changed!

We older ladies are much cooler than older ladies were a generation ago!

Well, that depends how you define ‘new element’! :P I define it as “a new object introduced in an update that’s not available in other levels before and can be used to influence gameplay’.

“In-game Power Up distinction! Yes, now your in-game “High Score” will differentiate your best score with and best score without use of Power Ups”

Is this retroactive? I.e. will high scores achieved with power-ups before this update now not count?

It should be, but unfortunately, I had no such scores in order to confirm.

word to the wise – not all portals are helpful in obtaining three star scores! Sometimes your best move is to ignore them altogether.

Agree! Sometimes is better to attack the structures directly.

ABN team – the update states:
“New portal element! If you have played Cut the Rope or PORTALS,”

If you are talking about the Valve games, it’s Portal and/or Portal 2, not Portals, plural.

@AMslimfordy The previous total of possible points for AB Seasons achievements in GameCenter was 984. The two new achievements add 16 points bringing the total to the maximum 1000 points allowed in GC.

@AMslimfordy. That’s okay. I’m one of those poor souls without the HD version. Looks like Rovio forgot too because the points work out perfect for SD players now. There’s still 100 points available in ABo, maybe they’ll finish that out if we get the 3rd world on Birdday Party in December and it becomes a full episode. Thanks for everything you do!

Played all the 3-star levels and what a boat-load of fun. It is amazing that Rovio finds new ways to make it interesting to play the AB games. The innovation with the portals is outstanding. The levels without portals seem to present new ideals, structures and strategies to obtain the 3-stars.

They also provided us (maybe it is only me) the most challenging level to obtain 3-stars, Level 2-12. This is the level where one can hum the “Rocky” theme and dance around the room with your hands in the air after getting all the stars. These three are yet to be gathered at this time, fun yes, but they are providing a good challenge.

This new Seasons game just peaks one’s imagination on what may be on the horizon for future development.

If they do add flying items, they should make it juggling pins that spin around when tossed on-screen.
