Angry Birds Space Beak Impact Now Available!

It’s been a little while since the last update Angry Birds Space — nearly 9 months in fact. But that’s in the past. Today, Beak Impact (v2.0.0) has landed! We first announced this update on May 2nd, courtesy of a Rovio/NASA tweet. The update is currently available for iOS, PC, Mac and Android via Google Play and the Amazon Appstore!

This update includes:

  • 40 new levels in the Beak Impact episode! This is the largest update ever to Space! Our walkthroughs are live if you need help.
    Note: Beak Impact is split into 2 parts. To unlock Part 2, you must 3-star levels 8-1 through 8-20. If this task seems to tough, there’s a $0.99 USD in-app purchase to unlock Part 2 as well.
  • Four new Antenna Egg levels! As expected, there is one for levels 8-1 through 8-10, one for 8-11 through 8-20, one for 8-21 through 8-30, and one for 8-31 through 8-40.
  • Two new Sardine Can levels! These are unlocked by obtaining all 20 feathers using the Space Eagle in each of Part 1 and Part 2. These walkthroughs will take us a bit more time to get to, but please be patient.
  • Four NASA Spacecrafts! Find each to unlock a bonus level: Orion Crew Vehicle, OSIRIS-REx, Deep Impact, and Dawn. We will leave their locations a mystery here. But be sure to keep an eye out and check out our Complete Eggsteroids Guide
  • Four new iOS achievements!

So what are you waiting for?

@bad-piggies-2 Glad they left it in somewhere. I like Slash and I like Hammond organs. :P

The levels are much more puzzle-style than the SW2 update which were generally blow up & clean up. A number of new items that can be set off gives you more things to think about. Wormhole and boss levels also require new strategies to conquer. Interesting update. 3-starred first set of levels pretty easy, second set seems to be a little tougher, but I don’t have enough time to work through to 3 stars at the moment.

Android users, are there still crashing issue? I still have such disgusting error…

By chris

Mine (on Nexus 7) now crashes every time on launch. Contacted rovio, they suggested backing up, uninstall/reinstall the game, then restoring the backed up progress. However, on Jellybean this requires rooting the device, which I have not done. They also said they are getting other reports of it and that they are working on a solution – they had this issue on some other games a couple times, must have made the same goof again. sigh.

I also contacted Rovio. With me, the update isn’t even installing on top of AB Space 1.6.9. premium. (HTC One X with Android 4.0.3) I’ll try a fresh install when I have Wi-Fi later today.

My problem is fixed. I uninstalled/ reinstalled, played one level and then copied my old highscores.lua file into the game. (I’m still missing my old Eagle + power-up count, but I’ll look into that later. For now I just want to play the update :-)

@burpie : If you keep your “eaglepurchase.lua” when you have a big number, you can restore your space eagle count.

For example, I have 645 bonuses space eagle in the infinity

Yep, managed to play 7 levels throughout my working day today on my Sony Xperia z2 tablet (kitkat v4.4.2), was looking forward to playing more levels after work but just keep getting an error message (“unfortunately angry birds has stopped working”) when I try to open the app now, regardless of whether I’m on or offline. Have also tried backup, uninstall/reinstall and restoring the app as suggested herein but this has been to no avail. I hope Rovio can get to the bottom of the problem and get it fixed soon.

In my case the problem had to do with file permissions. For some reason the backup program changed the file permissions to 175. After doing a restore and manually setting the permissions back to 666 everything worked.

I can’t explain as I’ve been using the same backup program for awhile now and haven’t had this issue in the past.

That’s how Linux/UNIX file permissions work.
You may need root to change the permissions.

Are others still having issues with the Android version? It continues to crash immediately upon opening on my Samsung Galaxy S3. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling. The game then starts normally, but as soon as I restore my backup file, it goes back to crashing again. This seems to be some sort of issue with the user data created by the old version causing a crash in the new version. Any workaround or news of an update to fix it?

I haven’t been able to open space since the update (device: Nexus 4). I contacted Rovio about a week ago, and they said they are working on a fix. I don’t want to delete and reinstall and risk loosing all my scores, so I guess waiting and hoping is the only option!

You are supposed to defend the space eggs by shooting out bomb bird from the cannon. When he is near a asteroid he explodes.

@amslimfordy @josm I’ve three starred both of E-15 and S-22. Ignore the asteroid eggs on the left and protect the ones on the right- you’ll have enough asteroid eggs and birds left to get the required three star score.

Same for me:( I got 1.6.0 and it works fine but when I go to the Play Store it says my device is not compatible. Maybe side-loading the apk will help if I can find it somewhere.

While this update is fun, I’m disappointed that you have to pay or 3-star all levels in Part 1 before you can play Part 2.

…Then again, I don’t need to worry about it too much yet because I haven’t completed Pt 1 yet (although I’m close too). Although the new main theme is nice and fits with the new episode, I still prefer the older one as it fits best with the older episodes. Overall though, it’s a pretty cool update.

Any reports of the danger zone episide being unlocked with this update please?
I noticed that the levels didnt have the padlock as in previous versions upon first opening the app, tried clicking on level 2 but this just resulted in a whirling circle (no Internet access at the time) and subsequently I had to force stop the app; now that I have Internet access, the app just crashes, so cant check it.

@leggy I think Level 1 was always free; beyond is paid.

@leggy Level 1 was always offered as a trial- I remember being able to play it when Space was first released.

By leggy (@leggy)

Thanks for responses @amslimfordy @spacemaster
Yes, I remember level 1 being available as a trial prior to buying the episode, but what I also remember is that levels 2+ had padlocks on them. Since the beak impact update those padlocks are no longer there, I’ve not paid to unlock the episode, so I thought perhaps Rovio had implemented an ‘unlock after 3* so many episodes/levels’ system as they’ve done in Absw….?

Thanks for the update Rovio… and a good one!

However.. my distaste continues. Nine months of development, and those that play for free get it first.. while those of us that have paid to play, have to wait. Delete this post if you want AMS.. or BL… but it grinds me to the core having to pay more for my platform, and be last in line.

Played the first 20 levels and this update is fun. Like the new effects and the subtle gravity fields. In addition, the backgrounds seem to have a bit more depth and the shades of blue are rich in color. It is nice to have another update in Space soon after CC.

In v2.0.0 Rovio has removed the ability on PC to free-resize the screen when playing in windowed mode. You can still resize it a bit, but it only allows sizes that match 4:3 and 16:9. The lowest you can go is 800×600. Not really a big deal, except now you can’t resize the screen to weird sizes e.g. 200×800, 1366×300 to see things that are normally offscreen, which is useful for the offscreen structure on Pig Bang 1-17, and the planet on the Anchors Aweigh level.
