Angry Birds Challenge

Welcome to the Angry Birds Challenge! Every day there will be a new level selected for you to play (get involved and let us know what levels you want to see as challenges here). Play for fun or use it as an excuse to improve your current score. A great goal is to try and beat the “Average” score below. Already done that? Then pork up and try to fling your way into the “Top 50″! Done that too?! Then take on the ultimate task and shoot for the “Highscore”! There is also a layer of competition here, as this page is connected to the leaderboard, so if you can improve your score you may also improve your rank. That said, don’t enter lower scores here.

Unsure about the “Underdog” badge mentioned in the comments? Check out the “Challenge” section of our F.A.Q. for the answers!

Squawk! Please, DO NOT enter scores using Power-Ups. (Exception: Angry Birds Star Wars II permits Character Swap scores.)

@amslimfordy I would like to ask if it would be possible to add the number of the Season in the title of the challenge. There are 4 seasons now and this would make it easier to find the level. I made an example of today’s challenge: Angry Birds Seasons 1 Trick or Treat Level 1-1

@angrybirdlover I think this answers your question. It comes from the leaderboard page.

Squawk! Please note that scores obtained using Character Swaps and TELEPODs are permitted on our Angry Birds Star Wars II leaderboard! However, please submit a strategy on our walkthrough pages explaining which characters were used and how you used them.

Is that correct @amslimfordy ?

@optik I just checked my iPad with the same iOS and the iphone with iOS6 and both seem to be working just fine. Did you try to clear your cache in the System App? Also try to logout and back in again here in the nest, that might help as well. If not let @AMSlimfordy know, he might have some more info or other things for you to try.

@AMSlimfordy – tried your instructions and there was nothing listed for any app in Website Data on my device. I had previously tried clearing both my History and Cookies/Data which did not resolve the issue. I was able to enter my score just now from a desktop computer but still having the same issue with Safari on the iphone for ABN. Cannot enter scores on any leaderboard right now, its almost as if the buttons have been disabled in my browser. I will research further. Thanks everyone for your help!!!!

Well ~ I just learned a AB lesson the VERY hard way………..

Another program on my PC was acting-up this morning so I did a cold-boot instead of shutting down normally ~ I had Star Wars open playing the Challenge at the time (Moon of Endor 5-16). After the re-boot I went back into Star Wars to continue flinging but to my surprise the game asked for my activation key. “Strange” I thought as I searched for the corresponding Roxio email in the archives. After activating the game I found the game had been reset and all my prior 3-Star scores for all levels had been erased. So my Challenge efforts are over for today as I can’t open Moon of Endor until the prior levels are all replayed. NOTE TO SELF: Never cold-boot the PC with an Angry Birds game open ~ Also better go look for and re-read that tutorial about backing-up the AB data files that I noticed somewhere on the ABN website.

@amslimfordy ~ Do all my leaderboard scores for AB-SW that I had previously entered need to be deleted either by the Admins or myself ~ or shall I just re-enter them as I complete each level again?

Rank: Sling God with 25735 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

@Uncle-B I’m so sorry to hear this! Let’s address three quick things.

1) No you don’t have to delete your scores on ABN.
2) The backup guide can be found right here. PC is luckily the easiest platform to backup.
3) While we’re on the topic, you have a couple options to try to recover this data. It might be worth trying. I’ll shoot you a Private Message.

I agree, that is a pretty big boo on my part. I had added some while traveling last week, but only enough to cover the week.

Since it’s much easier for us to add challenges now, I think this would be a great time for fellow Nesters to start telling us what levels you want added added as challenges. I created a topic in the forum, so head to the link below and start submitting your requests.

Avatar of annachRank: Pig Leader with 11450 points
By annach (@annach)

@birdleader – I am not sure I like the idea of users choosing levels for the daily challenge. Why can’t it be automated? Alternate the games and episodes in a certain order, but choose the particular level in an episode randomly. This will have an element of surprise. Of course, some levels should be excluded (the ones with glitches that have been later fixed), and if the program chooses it randomly, it should be rejected and the random search repeated. I would say the users should provide the list of levels to be avoided, not the list of levels to be played.

Rank: Avian Overlord with 17930 points
By Bird Leader (@birdleader)

Thanks for the suggestions @annach. Ultimately, I think we need both. We should automatically pull levels while also allowing users to request their favorites. We mix those so know one knows what day they will appear. I think there is a nice social element there, but I also agree the challenge should be a surprise.

This level (S&T level 4) should have never been chosen for the Challenge, even the ABO one. It used to have self-destruction allowing to finish it with no birds, and later it was fixed. As a result, it is now impossible to beat the top score. Such levels should be avoided. @birdleader

@pjng I don’t think it is anymore. During the Mar28 challenge, I had nothing better to do, so I read the year’s worth of comments from people unable to replicate the collapse. I tested it 1000x on two platforms (PC, iOS) and got perfect stability every time. No variance at all. No scores above 85k.

Despite that, the top 4-5 scores on today’s challenge have to be from 0-birders. They could be using old versions, or something, but I don’t think those scores are remotely attainable for most of us.

@AMSlimfordy It is sufficient. Even so, I agree with @mvnla2 that the information could be presented better.

The challenge page currently displays the Avg. Score and the Highscore (these numbers are also available elsewhere – on the walkthrough page) so it does feel like an omission to not list the “Puppy Score”. That’s what a lot of us here for!

Rank: Sling God with 25735 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

@mvnla2 @burpie We’re looking into this. It’s a bit non-trivial to do, but we’ll see if we can “lock” the Average and Highscore boxes on this page to stand exclusively at their starting values.
