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!

@amslimfordy here is a bug I found on Pig Days 1-1-

I launched Matilda and she hit the stack of rockets, causing one of them to point downward towards the ground. I made Bomb light the rocket and then the rocket went THROUGH the ground! wait! There’s more! the ground ripped open so when I shot another Bomb at the ground, he hit it and without using his power, the ENTIRE level disappeared! the ground (the one that the pigs were on) the pigs, houses, the ships, and even the indestructible eggs! gone! the only thing that remained was the birds and the slingshot…..it was really wierd

@rowdypup — Can you repeat it? If so, can you make a screenshot? You should send it directly to Rovio support.

@mvnla2 I don’t think I can repeat it again, it was like a 1% chance of that happening

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

Rank: Sling God with 20400 points
By Bird Leader (@birdleader)

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.

The game will slowly start to freeze up then it stops, freezes, and shuts me out of the app. I’ve found out that holding down the power button on your device for 15 seconds and pressing “Power Off” REALLY helps. It stops the crashing for about a few days I think, try it @birdlader and @ah-gooey

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 nathan

I’ve faced the issue a few times

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?

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. :)

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.

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..

For some reason the pig days levels have been reset (platform: android jelly bean 4.1 or 4.2

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

By nathan

it said a big number of days,but it’s fixed now. also it was on the first level. nevermind

By suti

The time left until a new level in Pig Days is open keeps reseting to 9 hours everyday. It’s happening on level 15 (first one after the egg day one).

I keep winning angry birds friends tournaments but, for the past several weeks, the prizes are never added to my total. How come, and how can I claim them?

@amslimfordy in Angry Birds Star Wars 2 in level B2-20 if you get Jar Jar’s angle just right behind Anakin’s Podracer you can make him swing around to the ground, hit it, and fly back up land not be hurt

Is this a glitch?

By Myranda Gillette

On Angry Birds Epic, I hit level 11 and 3 starred almost all my checkpoints and all of a sudden all but 2 birds went missing. I can still make stuff for them but they are nowhere to be found….

Per the Epic Bugs Forum front page:

Missing Birds is part of normal gameplay. Three birds are taken captive in Bamboo Forest, but keep playing and you’ll find them again!

Not a major bug, but in Seasons, the page numbers at the bottom of the screens in each episode have disappeared. This is after updating with “Ham Dunk”.

Angry birds epic kindle fire HD issue. It said I needed to update and it redirected me to the store. So I updated and it shows the additional chimero logo so I know it’s loading a new version. Then at a certain point during loading it tells me there is an update and redirects me to the Amazon app store. So I check and there is no update as I’ve already updated. So I delete the app and then download again from Amazon to be sure I have the latest version and it redirects me back to Amazon on loading to update where there are no updates. It’s stuck in a loop. I’m prob going to stop playing as well many others if I cannot access the game by the end of today as I was only 1 daily pig away from completing a sheet for epic items. All that work for nothing as it resets after 24 hours.

Also the spin on other people’s golden pig machines want working on the last version.

Rio – v 2.2.1 running on ipad v7.2.1. Re: the ‘presents’ that give you TNT, Samba birds, etc. this just started yesterday. The first present appeared, then when I hit it, I got the TNT (or whatever). Then a couple of levels later, the present displays as normal, in the center of the screen, with that ‘whoosh’ sound, but there is no present anywhere. When I go to each level after that, the same thing happens. I also cannot access the TNT, etc. I tried deleting and reinstalling, but it did the same thing. The irritating thing is that it ‘thinks’ the present wasn’t hit, so it keeps trying to add the present to each successive level, and it takes time to do the whole display, whoosh, etc. Thanks

On Angry Birds Epic my game is freezing after beating a battle. Everything looks fine but I am unable to move the blue rings. I have to close out and open a different game and then come back to the game. It allows me to play one battle again. Very frustrating and wasting time. Anyone else having this issue? It started during our last challenge.

By Annmarie.Buchner

I forgot to mention that this is happening on my kindle fire hd.
