Angry Birds Star Wars Escape from Hoth Update Out Now!

Just hours after being teased by Rovio, the Angry Birds Star Wars “Escape from Hoth” update (v1.1.2) is now available for iOS, PC, Mac, and Android via Google Play and the Amazon Appstore.

This update includes:

  • Final 20 levels of Hoth! Though categorizing them as “Hoth” seems a bit misleading, the gameplay for these levels are in an asteroid field near Hoth. Our walkthroughs are live! and can be found on the Hoth page.
  • Two new Bonus levels! Star Level #8 requires 480 stars, and Droid #7 is hidden somewhere in these 20 levels. Be sure to check out our Bonus Levels Guide, which has been updated to include these levels.
  • Six new character icons! We will update our “Meet the Characters” post soon, but it’s awesome to see Chewie get a power boost! (No word yet if this boost is retroactive.)
  • Four new iOS Achievements! Beware the mynock pigs!!!
  • “Coming Soon” Teaser Planet: Cloud City here we come! For more info on the Cloud City see Wookiepedia.

I’m guessing you’re right. Bispen is the last scene in Ep V, and that would make sense- two episodes per episode. I wonder what will happen when they run out?

Well, there will be 3 more movies. In 2015. But in cloud city, Darth vader says that he is Luke’s father. Will it be the same in ABSW? Or will darth Vader be a pig? Look at his mask. It looks sort of like a pig face.

I think Chewie’s power boost is retroactive, as it was for other characters.

It seems as though a wave of energy pulses from chewie when he is launched, so that when he smashes on contact, nearby blocks and piggies are pushed away.

I’m suprised there are no power ups. I figured that they would come to this update and be implemented like they did in Space.

So far, fun levels. Some I am having a hard time with, but I have 3 starred all levels that I have played so far. No not done with the entire episode yet, but having fun getting through it.

I’m going to go ahead and make a prediction that the Angry Birds show up in the new Star Wars movies! The birds are building a lot of hype early for a movie that’s not even due out until 2015! If they don’t at least make a cameo, they should!

I didn’t know the correct word so I used teaser. Its still greuling to know that another level will be coming out in the future for Rio.

Has anyone noticed that you can enter cheat codes? I found it in the settings on the main menu by pressing the gear (settings) then pressing the keyboard icon.

Those aren’t cheat codes. You enter a code (usually comes with the purchase of a tangible AB:SW product, such as plushies) and receive Mighty Millennium Falcons.

Any word on the Amazon update for Hoth yet? Why are they always so far behind Google? I would switch ABSW to Google, but I 3-starred Path Of The Jedi and paid for it and am afraid I will lose my progress even though I have Angry Backup which has never failed me. A few more days and I will take the risk of switching it also. I will then have move all of my phones Angry Birds to Google. I don’t have a choice on my Kindle Fire unfortunatley.

A few days lag is okay, but we are looking at a week and still no hint of the Amazon update. I will never buy a phone app that would be timely updated from them again. I am considering rooting my Kindle Fire just so I can use Google Play on it. Probably won’t do that because it could brick or void warranty. The sad part is there update process is better than Google’s because if the program resides on the sd card you don’t have to have the space on the internal phone and with an Optimus V phone (178MB total internal space) it really helps. When I do Google update I have to unistall and then reinstall a lot of programs to have room. I probably should just get a new phone, but I am stubborn. Shame on Amazon again.

I emailed them about this on the 7th and got this reply”

“Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry about “Angry Birds Star Wars” app. The current version available in the Amazon Appstore is 1.1.1.

Updates for your apps will automatically be made available in “My Apps” once the developer submits the app, and it’s approved by our Review Team.

Depending on when the developer submits the app for review this may result in the update being available after other marketplaces.

Our goal is for Amazon Appstore customers to have a great experience with every app they order. As a result, we test all apps and updates prior to making them available in our store to verify that each app works as outlined in the product description, does not impair the functionality of the mobile device, and does not put customer data at risk once installed.

You can let the developer know you’d like to see their updates made available in the Amazon Appstore by submitting feedback on their website.

Also, I’ve forwarded your email regarding the updated version of “Angry Birds Star Wars” to the Amazon Appstore development team. Customer feedback like yours helps us continue to improve the service we provide, and we’re glad you took time to write us.

We would never want to disappoint a valued customer like you and we always endeavor to assist our customer with the best of our service so we can ensure that we fulfill all of their needs.

Thanks for your patience and providing us your valuable feedback. We look forward to seeing you again.”

That was a week ago, and still no update. They’ve always lagged, usually only by a day or two, but two weeks is just ridiculous. I regret buying from them and not Google Play.

Profile photo of Old Man BirdRank: Explosive with 2495 points

I tweeted Rovio last week and they said it would be out very soon. That was also the 7th. I tweeted them again today, but have not heard back from them yet. I’ll post it if the answer is more specific than ASAP. I just don’t understand other than the installation method what makes it so different from Google Play. With so many variations of Android devices it will never achieve perfection, just look at the user comments on Google Play. I would sacrifice perfection if that is what is causing the delay. Last year on ABSp the delay was trying to get Danger Zone working and I contacted Rovio and ask them why they couldn’t release just the levels and go back and work on the Danger Zone issue. The next day Amazon had the update without the Danger Zone option. Unfortunately, there does not appear to be a similar issue this time. There does appear to be quite a few people complaining about having bought Path Of The Jedi and not being able to access it after the update on Google Play, maybe that is the issue. I think just a short update on the status from Amazon would be nice every few days.

Well, I’m guessing that you aren’t blind, since that would be a pretty silly comment. As for stupid, I’ve never met you, but I’m willing to assume at the start that you’re of at-least normal intelligence.

This update adds levels 21 thru 40 to “Hoth”.

Based on my response from Rovio, I would be very suprised if we see the Amazon update before next week. It sounds like the issue has not been resolved yet and unless a breakthrough occurs it could be a little while yet. I hope I am wrong.

Rank: Shooter with 815 points
By Jody (@jody)

Well at least that’s more information than we’ve gotten from Amazon! Did they give any indication of what the issue is?

Profile photo of Old Man BirdRank: Explosive with 2495 points
By Old Man Bird (@oldmanbird)

@jody Not really, but I would say it is safe to assume the Path Of The Jedi access issue that is referred to on Google Play. Something simpler wouldn’t be taking this long. Even if it was something else, they would have probably released the HD Version for the Kindle Fire by now, as that is basically for one device.

On a different subject, your Wonder Woman avatar is really cool. I haven’t ever seen her in the all gold outfit. Is it a CGI image? It looks very real, almost life-like.

@jody Alex Ross has some really cool superhero works. I visited his page this morning.

If you have a Kindle Fire, @mariokart-cruz has been able to update his. The HD page has been changed to new version on Amazon website. The non-HD version web page has not changed and there were not any updates on my phone. However, the non-HD version should be available within a few days, beacause they overcame the issue on the Kindle Fire (HD version).

Can’t upgrade! Any help? Wine/XP – 1.1.2, all prev versions have worked flawlessly). I’ve contacted the official supportteam, but when has that ever helped… Seems it can’t extract the exe file it downloaded, tried everything…

Did you try downloading the .exe from the official site manually? Head to download.angrybirds.com and click on “Download Free Demo”. Install the resulting .exe and all should be fine. Though, if you are having difficulties, you may want to backup your progress first — just to be safe.

Thanks a bunch, but I’ve tried that, and everything under the sun, just gave up trying it with PlayOnLinux, same error. CrossOver (which is what I’m using normally), has all the fixes and has never failed me until now. I’m guessing it’s something wrong with the “AngryBirdsStarWarsInstaller_1.1.2.exe” file itself, v.1.1.0 works, so I’m using that, waiting for the next update… hopefully it won’t be too long :(

Unfortunately, I’m not sure I can help any further. I’m not really familiar with Windows emulators.

By Erik Lundmark

Solved it !!! Yey !!!
As I suspected, the extraction was what made it break, it has to be something off with the exe file. Anywho, here’s what you do:
Extract the exe using a msiexec command, and then launch the setup.msi installer manually.
Because the solution is extremely fidgy about backslashes and such, I’ve made a gist here https://gist.github.com/5029833. I hope someone will find this useful…
