Celebrate Angry Birds Third Birthday With 30 New Levels!

Happy Birthday to both the Angry Birds and our very own @BirdLeader! Rovio has chosen to celebrate in the best way they know how: UPDATES! That’s right, Angry Birds v3.0.0 has just been released for iOS, PC, Mac, and Android via Google Play and the Amazon Appstore, with more platforms coming soon.

This update includes:

  • 15 levels in Birdday Party! As a fun tidbit, the birds waiting to be flung are all wearing conical birthday hats. Don’t let the festive look deceive you though: They are still very angry, and their cakes are dynamite! Our Birdday Party walkthroughs have been added to the existing category. These levels are Chapter 19.
  • 15 levels in Bad Piggies! (The episode, not the app.) This is being called Chapter 21, with the first 15 levels in Chapter 20. We have made all relevant changes to our walkthroughs and leaderboards, so you should be able to navigate smoothly. Our walkthroughs are live, added to the existing Bad Piggies category.
  • One new Golden Egg! Our Complete Guide has been updated, if you can’t find it on your own. As a hint: It’s not immediately visible!
  • Stella!!!! Yes, the Pink Bird has landed for ABo and first appears in Birdday Party 19-1. Use her bubbly awesomeness to earn your stars!
  • Full iPhone 5 compatibility!
  • No new achievements. This is expected, as ABo is out of room on GameCenter.
  • Power Ups: Still no distinction or differentiation that I can see, though if someone sees otherwise, please let us know.

Helpful Links

  • All of our (original) Angry Birds walkthroughs can be found on this page.
  • Need help finding Golden Eggs? We have the most complete guide on the web!
  • See our Total Destruction walkthroughs for earning feathers using the Mighty Eagle.
  • Compete with the best on the net here on the Nest! Enter your scores on our leaderboard. Note that Power Up scores are not permitted on our leaderboards at this time (besides in the Facebook leaderboard).

Finally, one more big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the man himself: @BirdLeader!

Honestly I hope not. I have all weekend to play theese 30 levels in ABO and there is one challenging level each day in ABS. I never thought it would take me so much time and that I wiould ever spend half day playing one single level. It is easy to get three stars but we all want good and above average scores.

Looks like they renumbered them. This I don’t understand…

Yes, they renumbered them. The chapter 2 of birdday party is 19, so the first 15 levels of bad piggies is 20

Rank: Out of this World with 2510 points
By brave1966 (@brave1966)

The current numbering system AFAWK allows up to 99 levels per chapter. Wish Rovio would explain why the renumber?

Maybe next year they’ll completely change the numbering system. Maybe 1[poached eggs]-1,2,3; 2[mighty hoax]-1,2, etc.?

I feel your pain, @birdjo. If it’s not available by tomorrow, then I’d really be upset.

Profile photo of BirdJoRank: Debriefed with 1410 points
By BirdJo (@birdjo)

Don’t be, @brave1966. Angry Birds in general had too much fun to be upset with. It’s a simple question really. What prevents the developer to release any game or update simultaneously on every platform available? Again, i believe they have the answer to that, too. We just don’t know it. Understanding is the key. But then we can’t understand anything if we don’t know the facts. Thanks for sharing the same “sentiment” anyway… :)

Rank: Out of this World with 2510 points
By brave1966 (@brave1966)

@birdjo: I have a few theories, mostly on the lines of too many updates too soon leading to reduced communication and software quality assurance (QA).

I have worked in software QA. I know our friends at Rovio can do better in synchro of releases and quality.

I would rather see a release held back until all platforms are ready than having the same one or two with huge head starts. Example: Bad Piggies Field of Dreams for PC was released 11 days after iOS and Android got it, and I have yet to play it much as a result with all the other AB updates. In the 5 months I’ve been playing Rovio games, this was the longest such delay. Everything else has usually been within minutes or hours on the release day.

OK, enough soap box. Back to waiting…

LOL, @brave1966. Christmas still miles away if that’s what you mean by 13… :p I’d rather wait for the update and ABS WW 1-12 first. Unable to share Rovio’s and BirdLeader’s great moments with other is like a pain in the lower back of my body. So which episode represents whom? I’ll have Birdday Party for the app (that’s a defo one) and Bad Piggies for the man. I mean, he IS Pig Leader… :D

With this new update to ABO, the Level Completed now shows if a power up was used on the Andriod Platform. This is a screen capture of ABO, Bad Piggies, Level 21-3. I used the Bird Quake power up then quickly wasted 2 birds. Used the last bird to finish off the level. This was my first completion of the level. I wanted to see what happened when power ups were used but didn’t want to 3 star or get a really high score. Want to beat it with out power ups. There is no indication that a power up was used to obtain the high score on the level selection screen.

Dittos for the lightning bolt to the left of the level cleared score on iOS, but it still does not show the bolt next to the score in the high score or best score displays.

Rank: Pig Leader with 10685 points
By sparty83 (@sparty83)

No further indications if a power up was used. When replaying a level that has a high score obtained by a power up, there is no indicator while playing that the current high score was power up aided.

It appears that the only place that shows if a power up was used is on the Level Cleared screen.

Rank: Pig Leader with 10685 points
By sparty83 (@sparty83)

Here is a different level.
High score of 91k obtained using a power up.
Current score of 65k used without power ups.

No distinction that the high score was obtained using a power up. UGH!

The hats on the birds in BdP change with each restart. The top-hat sometimes does incredible damage after it falls off
BPs 21-11 has self-destruction — Top of tower falls to right shortly after restart. I’m embarrassed to say that I was so surprised, I forgot to notice how many points; must be >10K because at least 2 pigs popped. This happened on my first start, and of course it hasn’t happened again.

Hey Slim, could you go to the first 2 levels of Birdday party and confirm if there is a sound glitch with the pink bird? For some reason all the other birds make noises when they launch, but there’s a bug with the pink bird, she doesn’t make a sound when you launch her.

I just noticed! Most of every bird’s sprites are now the Chrome version’s! E.x. Green bird and white bird are in their chrome! Every sprite of every bird opening their mouth are in chrome version! TBH I like the chrome versions more than the original! So cool!

Other things I’ve noticed:
Orange Bird’s power has been altered just like in seasons: He deflates faster.
When you launch Pink bird, she doesn’t say anything.
The screen shakes when an explosion occurs, say black and white bird, plus TNT.

Even more things I noticed!
There’s a brand new golden egg on 19-14 of Birdday Party, and here’s how you get it:
Simply destroy the cake TNT if front of you, and the Egg will appear behind you. Use the greenie to nail it.
There are parts from the game bad piggies in the episode bad piggies, but they are pretty weak in power.
And I think Pink bird’s power is altered a little, it seems she can bubble in more sfuff around her.
Whew! There’s a lot of stuff in this update! :)
