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!

Rovio calls Angry Birds Original (Classic) ABC. How should it be used when on the Nest? Does it matter, or is there proper etiquette?

I suppose I should change my avatar. It does look somewhat Halloweenish. @slimfordy looks so handsome in his winter attire. Happy birthday @birdleader.

We prefer ABo since ABC may be interpreted as Chrome. But if the risk of confusion is low, there’s no real problem.

Excellent point, as you can tell, I completely forgot about Google Chrome. Sorry Google users, my bad.

I logged out, and I see my wintry avatar. It is not nearly as cool as yours @slimfordy. Happy Holidays!

Anybody notice that the King Pig himself still doesn’t appear in the actual Birdday Party levels?

Oh well, maybe next year.

Maybe the secret Cake achievement in 18-15, along with either a)more secret cake achievements, b)’slices of cake’ rewarded for finishing each theme(or/and 3 stars), or c)all of them added together, make up a secret Cake level that is kind of like the Golden Mooncake level Angry Birds Seasons!!! Anyone found a secret cake achievement in any of the levels so far?!?!?

A couple subtle little changes you guys may not have noticed:

All birds now have Chrome/Rio sprites (except the Bomb bird when flying).

They redid World 6 background (Danger Above).

Surf and Turf is now classified as a bonus package.

What a FUN update!!! I am about half way through and it is quite refreshing to have some “Easy Breezy” levels to play ;-) Also they are the kind where using several birds scores higher than what we’ve been used to lately…trying to find the ultimate hard one birdies. What a very fun present Rovio gave us.

Could be yeast or batter. Can’t really tell.

Oops..sorry, I misread. If you’re three, you’re mature for your age. Since you’re probably at least 12 times that number (no offense if I’m wrong) you’re bordering on the immature side. Like most of us :-) Happy Birdday!

Don’t know if anyone has mentioned this so plz excuse me if they have. I’ve noticed that when the orange bird deflates it does damage to the pigs and blocks it contacts. Don’t think it did that before.

Yes, there have been small tweaks to bird behavior in the 3.0.0 and 3.1.0 updates to ABo and ABS respectively.

When new episodes for AB are out, I first complete every level, then I 3 star all levels, and finally I feather them. Who does the same?

By seven7three

This is exactly what I do too! I basically just power through all of the levels, go back to 3-star them (and watch a video if I’m stuck), then I bust out the eagle. :)

When complete the birthday episode, 2011 with 3 stars appeared the cake with the star on the home screen and when it appeared the new update still cake with star on the home screen but I wonder if when complete birthday 2012 levels what object represent the complete all 3 stars? It will be the same cake or other object?

Happy Bird-day or birdday.

Update: In the new version when you receive the same cake when you complete the 30 levels and the star when you complete the episode with 3 stars. if you are completed the episode of birdday party before the version 3.0.0 and you completed the last 15 levels, you view the same cake, when you complete the first 15 levels in version 3.0.0 you can see a cutscene defeating the moustache pig.

Still surprised the cutscenes still have the King Pig even if he’s not anywhere in Birrday Party.

With the update- shoot blue straight up. Activate his power. Look closely at their expressions. Flying with a corpe sprite? Hmmm…

Try it in any other level and zoom in. You get the same results.

OK, I was going to update it, but it said something about an error on the Games Explorer and then it did a Rolling Back Action and completely unistalled ABO from my PC. I hate that….

Hello @absure
Seems that you have the same problem with me when I installing v2.3.0, eh? Is the error number is Error 1316? Or it saying “A network error occurred…….”? I think I could help you a little bit.

Rank: Hardened with 510 points

Yes it is. I made my pc be like it was before the update but abo wasn’t there.

I can play the PC Bad Piggies with no problems. The Birdday update is totally screwed up with streaming and launching issues. Anyone else having these problems?

Maybe you need to update the driver for your graphics card.
If that doesn´t work, try restarting your PC.

By Daniel T

Where is the ‘repair’ option in the installer? The only two buttons I get/see are ‘run’ and ‘cancel’. I’m getting the Call stack error AFTER the game ran an update (ie it worked perfectly well first time, then it offered an update so I thought, “more levels” and installed it, basically ruining the program).

Reinstalling the game also doesn’t seem to help as it goes back to the same post update-error point.

I would highly recommend backing up progress, uninstall, restart your PC, then install again.
