Angry Birds Star Wars II Rise of the Clones Update Out Now!

I hope you went out and bought some AAA batteries after our announcement yesterday. Otherwise your lightsabers and blasters might not be ready for this awesome new update! Set on Kamino and Coruscant, Angry Birds Star Wars II Rise of the Clones (v1.5) is now available for iOS and Android via Google Play and the Amazon Appstore, with more platforms coming soon.

PC release: Occurred on 13 June, and includes the Carbonite Rewards (v1.3.0) and Galactic Giveaway (v1.4.0) updates! Please check those posts for more information. :)

This update includes:

  • 40 new levels in Episode 4: Rise of the Clones! Per usual, these levels are split as 20 on the Bird side and 20 on the Pork side. Our walkthroughs are live if you need help.

    Note: You must pick your side when you first attempt to open the episode. For example, if you choose the Bird Side, the Pork Side will unlock after accumulating 35 stars in the Bird Side or pay 700 Bird Coins. (The price in Bird Coins in 20 times however many stars you still need to unlock the side.)
  • 4 new secret levels, which means two new treasure maps to find! We’ll help you find them all in our Complete Treasure Maps guide.
  • 4 new gameplay characters! Now play as Padawan Anakin, Mace Windu, Jedi Youngling, and Boba Fett!
  • No new hidden Bonus Boxes in this release, but maybe in the future. If you need help finding boxes from previous releases, head to our handy guide.
  • 4 new achievements!
  • New Last Chance Bird: If you have used your entire lineup but enemies still remain, you can summon another bird to your lineup from your stock of Character Swaps!
  • All Angry Birds Star Wars II 3-star walkthrough videos are live! We also include Hidden Bonus Boxes, Treasure Maps, and much more.
  • Compete with the best players in the world by entering your scores on our Angry Birds Star Wars II leaderboard. For the first time ever in a mobile app, ALL SCORES ARE VALID. This includes scores obtained with TELEPODs and Character Swaps. However, please explain what characters you used on the walkthrough pages.

Does anyone know how the final boos works in pork side? because sometimes the spaceship starts shooting. Is it random or do you need to activate it somehow?

@bad-piggies-2 It will shoot when it has a clear shot at an enemy (as in, no debris stands in the way of a direct shot).

Just played the first couple levels of the bird side, and I have to say I like that Rovio placed the TNT on the side of the far platform on level one to demonstrate that the platforms are actually “in play” vs. placing the “hit it here” yellow triangles all over the place like they did in Short Fuse. Gameplay just feels more natural this way.

@Sparty83 @AMSlimfordy @BirdLeader — Checked all of B1 and B2-20 (which had no coins in original Galactic Giveaway release). No new coins in those levels.
Rise of the Clones seems to have a lot.
Will check rest of old levels later.

I had 914 coins found before the update, now I have a total of 1145. I found 231 new coins in the new levels. Let me know if you find any more than that. I did find that you couldn’t see all of the coins on the iPhone, but when I switched to my ipad I could see them much easier.

@dmsral — Oh, yes! Pork side is normal difficulty, got lots of 3* on first pass, some even on first fling! Bird side is really difficult.

Got to say that the Bird-side levels are difficult. Can’t remember when I last had so much trouble getting 2 stars, let alone 3. OK, I do remember that when I first started playing AB, I was happy to pass a level with 1 star, but since then?

Good, I was worried that they were going to skip over Coruscant and Kamino and go straight to Geonosis. But now I’m really concerned that they are going to skip over Geonosis because the the silhouette for the next level is Sith Anakin.

Of note: The shop has been completely changed. The separate “Watto’s Shop” is gone and they have merged it with the character swap menu. Also you can now use a swap even after you have used up all the default shots.

I absolutely love how the clones are wearing fake beaks.

Played a few levels and just a bunch of fun. Did some substitution and this update is going to take some thought and analysis. Should be fun experimenting with the various character’s attributes. Gain over 30k in points with one substitution. The possibilities are going to make this game play great.

Wish Rovio would release the remaining of the 2nd Series tele pods to the retail market.

Rank: Gold Flinger with 9725 points
By sparty83 (@sparty83)

@amslimfordy,
Just wild speculation here, but could it be possible that Rovio only did an iOS release today with others coming soon because of the ability to log into your ABSW2 account. Thinking that with a release of a new episode, they may have expected a higher than normal amount of traffic.

(since I play on android and don’t have the update yet, that’s my theory and I’m sticking to it)

Help! I activated the pig power-ups on the bird side by mistake for 10 coins and now the level on the level selection screen has a different color which looks ugly. How can I undo this? I cannot backup my phone cos my last backup was 2 months ago.

Avatar of AngryBirdsSpaceMasterRank: Master Slinger with 5960 points

@chriss You can’t undo this. If you buy it for the rest of the levels they will at least look the same as that one. It’s 299 coins to unlock all levels on one side.

You have 10.000 or 1.000 attacks ?
There is a bug which makes that the progress bar of 10.000 attacks that must replace those 1.00 does not appear.
Of the blow the achievement is blocked but in the game we see that of the 1.000 as successful.

Otherwise look in Game Center to see at what you miss him.

It’s not completely clear in the shopping cart. The number of coins required per character corresponds to how many characters? infinite?

Is it still possible to buy an infinite number? What happens if you already bought someone infinite?

Yes, you can “re-purchase” on top of infinite. So beware, since it’s a waste of bird coins. ;)

@joeyba @Razorblood

The displayed cost is for 10 characters. Clicking on the “person of interest” does NOT purchase but rather opens their own little dialogue box. There, you can view and choose which package you want: +10, +30, +100, +∞.

After I upgraded to the new version, I’m having problems with my Rovio Account. It works fine on the iPad I usually play it on. However, I’m going to have to return it to my school soon, and so have decided to start playing it on our iPod Touch. But my Rovio Account won’t sign in on that device. I try to log in and it does nothing.

I contacted Rovio about this, and they suggested rebooting the device. I tried that, and it didn’t work. They asked me to make sure both devices have the same version of the game, and indeed they do. Do the differing GameCenter accounts have anything to do with this issue? Could it be that the iPad is iOS 7 and the iPod Touch is iOS 6?

Is anyone else having a problem like this?
