Abracabacon level 6 3 stars impossible on I-phone 4

Do you mean Level 1-6 or Level 2-6? In either case, perhaps our walkthroughs can help. By no means are they impossible.

Done it. But by bouncing the pink bird off the glass on to the stone block!

Angry Birds Go: Game crashes right at end of race (most annoying bug ever)

I’ve been experiencing quite a few crashes too, but typically when entering a race. Strange.

By Aubri

This didn’t start happening to iOS update version 1.4.0. I hope they fix it ASAP.

Hello, there is a bug in Angry Birds Star Wars 2. Sometimes when I watch an ad to melt the carbonite, the game crashes.

It seems your device is busy and slow. You’ve to close additional working apps. if you tapped to watch an ad then app crashed again, please let us know what’s you device?

There’s a bug in Angry Birds Epic atm (or at least on Amazon App store). The bug is that when you go over the crystal skull item in the forge it just says the instructions for crafting, but doesn’t show its recipe nor the ability to craft it.

Angry Birds Go! (ABG) Weekly Tournament does not give a prize at end of tournament (week) if you only finish 4 of the 5 challenges(when playing as guest), even though you are on the top of the podium. If you have to finish 5/5 to win then you should remain in 3rd place – I scored big enough in the last 2 weeks to be on the top step without finishing the 5th challenge (I have to admit the slalom 2 weeks ago and the Rocky Road Time Boom last week just had me beat) but finishing on the top of the podium should mean a win, right?

Angry Birds Space: When playing level 7-30, if you detonate Bomb right before it hits the pig’s machine, the game will freeze, then crash.

By Murphy

On AB Epic, on windows, for the Nokia 620.
It has recently began to crash every time I go into the loading screen either after a fight or after leaving the nest.
Any tips around this?

When i finished the challenge at the mouth pool i never got the red key, what can i do to get it

Each time I click on a tournament game I receive a message saying reload the pigs are playing with connection.

With the new update of AB original my progress on Short fuse was totally erased ( had to 3 star and feather all levels again) and the first 15 levels in Birthday Party were also lost…had to do them all again…interesting to say the least!

@spoonmon Sounds like you got logged out of your Rovio account. Whenever there is an update you have to sign back in.

Ok, but still doesn’t explain random loss like only the first 15 levels of Birthday Party. Thanks @SnTrooper

@spoonmon Just FYI, I saw a few reports of that happening, except their missing levels were different than yours: Specifically, all of Short Fuse and part of RMF.

I think it’s just a random update glitch. Happens all the time, and on all platforms. For example, after one update on PC, my data files were inexplicably changed to read-only, so no progress was saved. Rovio had no idea why. :)

I forgot to say that the previous bug report was for the game:
ANGRY BIRDS EPIC

By Timothy

The ‘volley’ skill of the blue bird in angry birds epic doesn’t seem to work.
It attacks, game says the dot attack sticks, but the damage is not dealt each turn.

By Lawrence

Last two nights I’ve tried to access the daily free spin. When I touch the pig, it goes to my friends list. However, when I try to use the spin, it goes back to my page and not the friend’s page(where the free spin should be). It also won’t allow me to access Piggy McCool’s vendor page. I can eventually get to the vendor page (usually the next day), but no luck on the free spin.

This will be fixed by updating to v1.0.12 — which is currently available for Android and will be available soon for iOS.

By tom

I also have this problem, running on Windows Phone.

In the last update for Rio on Android a couple days ago (I thought it was just some bug fixes) the background instead of having clouds and sky is now black. This seems to be on all levels. It only happens some of the times. Has anyone else experienced this.

My angry birds rio hd keeps freezing.
If it does play, it is only briefly then goes back to home.

Angry Birds Go! (ABG) Weekly tournament no longer allows you to play as guest – it comes up with the usual “Compete against your friends” dialog box but if you click “Later” it just returns you to the main track selection page (it used to allow you to play against 2 computer-generated competitors) – I already finished one race before I did the update so I know it was the latest update that has caused this as I can see my score in the background.

ABGo IOS version 1.4.2

1) Challenge, use all powerups in 3 races: the counter doesn’t always work. For instance I’ve been using all powerups in 5 races now (same challenge) and the counter still starts on 1 everytime I open the challenge

2) Multiplayer mode: It’s much better than before the update to version 1.4.1, but the game still crashes in multiplayer mode

3) Multiplayer mode: a strange bug is making some of the racers sort of blinking on the screen and then they move right into the finish area without racing

4) Prices on cars: Sometimes the most expensive cars are listed as costing 9000 gems, sometimes they cost 2400 gems..

Not sure what you mean by “reset” Nathan. Can you elaborate?
