Angry Birds Seasons Mooncake Festival Now Available

The Angry Birds Seasons Mooncake Festival update (v1.6.0) is now available for iOS, Symbian and Android via the Android Marketplace and Amazon AppStore. It’s awesome to see so many platforms get the update at the same time! Hopefully the remaining platforms will see the update soon.

This update includes:

  • 30 new levels, plus 3 bonus levels for tapping the Facebook button all themed for the Chinese Moon Festival.
  • 8 Hidden Pieces of mooncake that when found unlock a special mooncake level
  • 5 new “secret” achievements
  • Pro tip! Red lantern yields a 3,000 point bonus
  • The Summer Pignic Score Addict counter bug has been fixed!
  • The bug preventing users form accessing the Facebook levels in Go Green, Get Lucky and Hogs and Kisses has been fixed!
  • The Golden Egg numbering still shows up on the completion screen and is still incorrect.
  • Bug: No iOS users are receiving the “Bright Side of the Moon” achievement.

Some helpful links:

We will keep this page updated as more platforms come online and the walkthroughs, leaderboards, etc. become available. If you’re interested the backstory regarding this update can be found in our original post.

instead of updating the file I already have on my phone (android) it added a completely new one. Now I have 2 season apps on my phone, one finished and one not started and completely updated. Is there anyway I can merge the 2 into one app with all my progress?

Rank: Sling God with 27730 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

I’m surprised you’re even allowed to do this. No, I don’t think you can merge the progress. You should delete the app with nothing and simply update the existing app.

Were you prompted to “Replace” the application on your device? Could you delete the new app and update again? I’m not super familiar with the Android OS, so be very careful deleting anything. Your progress is stored in two files: highscores.lua and settings.lua. If you can back those files up in the version you have progress you could restore them to the “new” version.

I downloaded a backup and it cant find the “savegame” file. It must be somewhere.

Rank: Slinger with 1020 points

I was not prompted to “replace”. I did uninstall the empty app and reinstall the update and the same thing happened. I even downloaded a 3rd party backup app and it couldnt find the “savegame” file.
The current app doesnt even act like it needs an update. The android marketplace doesnt see it but amazon does. Neither tells me to update it.
I did update the original AB this morning so I have that to keep me occupied for now…LOL

I would definitely recommend restarting your device and searching purely for the update. Are you using Market or Amazon?

Rank: Slinger with 1020 points

I did restart and I tried using both market and Amazon.

Is that you are not being prompted to update?

Also, have you tried the Direct Link? (This is for Amazon, since you installed from there)

Rank: Slinger with 1020 points
By cillmylandlord (@cillmylandlord)

I am not being prompted to update. Amazon is telling me that I have seasons on my phone and I can install another one. I tried that and it just puts another file on the phone. I initially tried the direct link. Same thing. 2 files. The one Im trying to update is the free one with ads. I also bought it without ads (which amazon is telling me to DL) but instead of overwriting, getting rid of the ads and keeps the progress it just made a second app. I tried downloading a 3rd party app to backup progress but it cant find the “savegame” file.

This is very bizarre. You may need to contact Rovio support on this one. It’s moreso strange that you are not being prompted to update.

Rank: Deputized with 185 points

You do technically have two versions on your phone. One with ads, one without. They are treated as separate apps, so that’s why you have two showing up.

I thought the ad-free was supposed to overwrite the one with ads

Rank: Deputized with 185 points

Well I’m not 100% familiar with the Android system, but on iOS, the free versions and full versions are separate apps, they do not interact with each other for scores or progress.

Rank: Slinger with 1020 points

It has before. I used to have free AB and free Rio and they were just overwritten

Rank: Master Slinger with 7205 points
By TruckDriver (@truckdriver)

This happened to me as well. After downloading and installing from Amazon I had two apps running. After a device restart, I went back to Amazon, where it still showed as an undownloaded update. I started downloading it a second time, and it worked properly.

If I were to speculate as to the cause, I’d have to say that the fault was on Amazons script, which after version checking, must have dropped the variable value, so it installed as a new app instead of prompting for an update as it should.

As of this moment, the problem seems to have been corrected, so corrective action should be to redownload if your source still shows up as an update. It worked for me, hopefully it will work for you as well.

Rank: Slinger with 1020 points
By cillmylandlord (@cillmylandlord)

It works now. I think the ad free and ad version are two separate apps. With AB and Rio the ad-free overwrites the app with ads. This is not the case with Seasons. The version with ads came out later in the day and I updated it.

Bunny Hopper – break 300 bunnies – 10 points
Bright Side of the Moon – finish moon festival – 10 points
Moon Festival 3 Stars – earn 3 stars on all levels – 30 points

Any tHought why they removed these achievements??? Or are they treating them as hidden achievements??

The achievements were made secret since (we think) they were published a wee bit early. It seems they forgot to un-secretize them.

By Maiasatara

2-14 mooncake is impossible!!!

By Si

it’s not. once it appears, bounce a bird downwards into the ground and let it roll off the edge. it takes a few attempts

By Fillipello

Aim the yellow bird slightly to the rigt without stretching it all the way out. About 1/3 or 1/4 of full stretch. As soon as you let go, push again. If you get it right you’ll get a “perfect hit”.

By Matt

This update still didn’t fix the Facebook level issues with the Go Green, Get Lucky. Now when i click on the Facebook icon it says “Thank you! We like you too!” But it will still not give me access to the levels. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Rank: Avian Overlord with 19495 points
By Bird Leader (@birdleader)

We think it did, but you may have to follow these steps:

1. Restart your device
2. On your device, navigate to Facebook.com and make sure you are logged out
3. Reopen Seasons, navigate to the FB levels and tap the icon

Also, if for some reason that doesn’t work C_Wiz offers up another solution:

Now when you tab [the FB button] you finally get a “Thank you, we like you too” popup. One thing to mention is that the levels didn’t look unlocked. I went and clicked the other facebook buttons (hogs that I had previously unlocked and the one on the right for Moon festival, which opened some chinese content) and when I went back to Go Green, Get Lucky, the levels were finally unlocked.

By Matt

The 2nd suggestion worked for me. Thanks for the help.

I don’t find the new version in the ovi store. This is release by country? My ovi store says that the last version of Angry Birds Seasons is 1.5, which is the same that i already have installed in my N8.
Any idea about this?

The Ovi page has update, but for some reason the in-game prompt has not yet been triggered. Indeed, the Ovi update has not yet gone through. When the link there changes, you’ll be set.

Thanks.
The same problem i have with Angry Birds: Mine and Dine. I have installed in my N8 the 1.6.0, but the last version i understand is the 1.6.3 with chapter 17.
Will be an update soon for Symbian?

This update does not seem to include the fix to SG-16 Mighty Eagle (at least I’m still not getting closer)

No, I thought the idea of adjusting the threshold for this update was a bit farfetched, since the update probably ready and just in QA at that stage.

By Chris

Some additional comments/questions:

1. Are you sure that the achievements should be considered “secret”? I’m asking because they used to be visible for about 1 day recently. And in addition to that, score addict and total destruction achievements have never been secret. Maybe it’s a bug and with the next update they won’t be secret any more, but then nobody will realise because everybody already has them.

2. Did anybody get the “Bright Side of the Moon” achievement? I did not receive it. Or maybe I misunderstand what “finish” means.
What about the other Moon Festival achievements? Is there anybody who has one of them already?

3. An old bug is back: If I finish a Mooncake Festival level, it shows my Trick Or Treat score. For the first few levels it showed the correct score. But when I reached a schore of about 1,5 million in total, it started showing the Trick or Treat score.

I saw that in the forum thread about glitches, this bug was mentionned but then deleted again. Why?

4. Is there no golden egg in this episode?

Rank: Sling God with 27730 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

1) Yeah, “secret” is tough, but we will leave it this way for now since it is unfortunately true by our definition.

2) I did not receive “Bright Side”, but I did receive “Shut the Lights!” and “Total Destruction”.

3) I had originally experienced this, but no longer. I restarted the app and everything was fine. Seemed to be a temporary glitch, not a bug.

4) The eight slices of mooncake seem to combine to one Golden Egg level.

By Chris

3) I have restarted many times but it still doesn’t show the correct score.

By Chris

3) I think I find out what it is. It is neither temporary, nor has it to do with the score.

When I play a level of the first chapter (the levels starting with “1”), then it shows the Mooncake Festival score. But when I play a level on the second page (the levels starting with “2”), it shows my trick or Treat score.

I have the iPhone version. But please check if it is the same on your device.

You need to 3 star FB levels as well to receive the achievement. Can you confirm you did beat those as well?

By Chris

But for 3 staring the levels there is the Total Destruction achievement. Normally the “Bright Side of the Moon” schievement should be received for finishing all the levels and not for 3 staring them.

Rank: DaBomb with 310 points

Yes sorry, my fault.
To get that achievement you need to finish the Facebook levels as well.

By Chris

That’s what we did, but not achievement.
Not even a “congratulation” text like in the previous updates. Not even a new icon flying around on the titel screen.

By Melissa

This morning I saw on my Twitter feed that the update was out, but neither the Amazon App Store or Android Marketplace was showing that I had an update. Both showed the pictures to the new levels but it just had “open” not “update.” Finally it’s now showing update as an option but when I go to update it, it’s saying I need to do it over a Wi-Fi connection — can anyone let me know if they had to download it over Wi-Fi as well? I’m mainly concerned only because I had so many issues with it trying to even show an update was available. Thanks!

I had to use wifi to download it from Amazon App Store this morning and it actualy downloaded really fast. I havent had any problems with it at all.

Rank: Sling God with 27730 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

When Seasons for PC releases, it will at least have through Summer Pignic — the accidental/unofficial release was v1.5.1. It is possible that Rovio may just push this as the launch version, or maybe they hold off until v1.6.0 is ready, or maybe it will wait longer.

PC will eventually have this episode, but its not clear if it will be there at launch.

I haven’t been able to download the update all afternoon, so I just called Amazon customer support. Apparently there is some issue with the update (it’s not just me!) and Amazon and Rovio are working on a fix. Additionally, they gave me a $5 credit to spend on apps – and I wasn’t even complaining! I thought that was really impressive customer service on Amazon’s part.

Shooting softly backwards is very difficult and very touchy. Keep at it and I’m sure you’ll get there.

By notacreativename

For me, if you pull straight back (so it only goes down a little in the sling shot) then keep rolling it to the right just to the point where you’re too far out of the sling shot and you can pull back all the way, then go back one spot so you’re back to the tiny pull seems to work the easiest for that soft roll back,for me anyways. Hope that helps

By Cas

thanks, that worked
but now it shows that i havent gotten all the pieces.. there’s a slice missing from the mooncake thing at the end

I cant seem to get the mooncake on level 1-2, even when I land a direct hit on the mooncake a couple times, the block wont break. Is anyone else having this problem or am I doing something wrong? Im on Android

The Bomb Bird itself is not enough to break the block. You have to manually detonate him (just tap the screen).

I have manually detonated the Bomb Bird on the block, above the block, next to the block…nothing seems to be working. Are there any other Android users that have been able to get the mooncake for level 1-2?

What are some other people’s 3 star level scores seen as we can’t post them on the leader boards yet? Mine is 92,810 which isn’t great just yet… Also, I noticed the mooncake bonus level lost it’s score when I loaded the game again today… a little strange. I also think I might have been the first user of Mooncakes as I’ve got a screenshot of the leader board with only my score out of “all players” unless there’s some kind of total score lag with Game Center.

Is something supposed to fly in the title after completing the episode? Halloween’s a Pumpkin, Christmas is a Present, Valentine’s is a Cupid Pig, St. Patrick’s is a Clover, Easter is an Egg, and Summer is a Sunflower. What’s Moon Festival suppose to be?

Please help those of us that r not pros at this. Level 1-5 tip says “use an bird to explode the tnt…”. That’s like having a tip that says, “shoot the pigs.”. I know what i have to do, but how????? The steps block my birds from reaching the TNT.

By Gary

You have to shoot a bird softly and let it roll down the steps and onto the TNT. That was the easy part for me. The mooncake appears to be inside a block and I can barely get a bird to roll onto it but it’s not enough to get it to break. Anyone have any ideas?

I just got both the tnt and the cake using one bluebird and the method I posted. First, one bird from the split hit the tnt, then another rolled off the platform and got the pie. It only took a few tries.

Profile photo of kathi17Rank: Master Slinger with 7015 points
By kathi17 (@kathi17)

Try barely pulling the slingshot to fire the bluebird straight up, and hit the screen to make him split as quickly as possible. If you pull softly enough, he will go a tiny bit straight up and then the three birds will rain down, with one of them, hopefully, hitting the tnt. Just try it a few times to get your aim right. It’s a lot easier than trying to roll him off the platform!

Yes, it is a Golden Egg-style level and will be included on the Seasons GE Leaderboard once the numbering is sorted. Need to discuss with BirdLeader what to call the two levels. I’m partial to:
23: The Big Mooncake – Obtain 3 stars on all Mooncake Festival levels
24: The Golden Mooncake – Collect the eight slices of mooncake within the episode.

Rank: Master Slinger with 5285 points
By teogeo (@teogeo)

On Android (at least in the ad-free version) there is no numbering even when you beat/win a golden egg. I think you should replace the numbering in the leaderboards so that every chapter is stand alone (e.g. the GEs in Easter Eggs go from 1 to 10, the GEs in Summer Picnic from 1 to 2 etc.). You might also have an image at the top indicating which is which. :-)

Funny you say that, as that is how we used to have these numbered (by episode). I tend to agree that from a player perspective it makes the most sense. Let me ponder this a bit. Thanks for the suggestion.
