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.)

@admins I have a question about this underdog badge or puppy thing. In addition to meet the criteria, are you supposed to apply for it or contact somebody?
The reason I ask is that in yesterday’s challenge, the Cosmic Crystals 7-29, I got the new top score, described my strategy and uploaded a screenshot, but got no badge.
I must have missed some info or misunderstood something apparently.

Profile photo of KelaniRank: Master Slinger with 6405 points
By Kelani (@kelani)

@gladvold You followed all the requirements just fine. I think your post was probably overlooked because you didn’t mention @Mumsie42 or post the actual link to the screenshot (hint: you can copy and paste the Direct Link or Text Link code found below the screenshot in your album to do that).

I looked into this for you, and everything’s good. Your Underdog badge will be awarded shortly. Sorry for the confusion, and Congrats!

Profile photo of gladvoldRank: Explosive with 2150 points
By gladvold (@gladvold)

@kelani Thanks for your answer!
Yes, I am sure I posted my score on the challenge page. Several times actually, as I improved. But the top score came late, I believe it was 1h 20m before end of challenge.
OK, I’ll add the link once I get to a computer. (For some reason cut and paste on my cell phone does not work here on ABN).
I’d say it’s not obvious to a newcomer that you also have to mention someone, let alone knowing who! Perhaps information should be stated somewhere.

Profile photo of KelaniRank: Master Slinger with 6405 points
By Kelani (@kelani)

@gladvold Thanks for your quick reply. I edited my original post to give you some updated info, but your reply came at the same time. It appears you were overlooked yesterday, and I apologize for that. There’s no need to do anything else with the screenshot link. Your Underdog badge has been awarded! Thanks for letting us know about the mistake, and congrats on your first puppy. :)

I agree that the @mention feature isn’t obvious to newcomers. I’ve been working on an updated FAQ which explains this and many other new member questions. It should be available in the near future, along with some other resources that’ll help new users get up to speed. Thanks for your patience in this, and allow me to wish you a (belated) Welcome to the nest!

@kelani No need to apologise. Glad to see the FAQ etc. will be updated, looking forward to that.
Thanks again for your kind help, the award and and all!

Can PC users upload scores?

Profile photo of KelaniRank: Master Slinger with 6405 points
By Kelani (@kelani)

@dawgbytez If the level is available on PC, yes you can. There’s not very many of us PC users, so we always welcome more scores. :)

btw, I saw you said “upload”. You can add your scores to the leaderboard, but you’ll have to enter them manually. There is currently no way to upload your scores all at once.

Rank: DaBomb with 420 points
By Dawgbytez (@dawgbytez)

I mean from one level inside the game. If we can’t upload them but enter them manually then couldn’t someone just enter any score they choose?

Profile photo of KelaniRank: Master Slinger with 6405 points
By Kelani (@kelani)

@dawgbytez Yes, you can enter a single score from anywhere in the game. Although, if you’re going to enter one score, I recommend that you also enter at least 5 more scores from that episode. And if you’re entering any high scores, I strongly recommend you enter at least 10, or ideally, all the scores for that episode. The reason is that our leaderboards rely on the honor system, and people who enter good and bad scores are seen as more credible than someone who just enters a single random high score.

You are correct that anyone can enter whatever score they feel like (there are limits to this). But this doesn’t mean that no one notices. It’s actually quite the opposite. All our boards are closely watched by members who play on them. Whenever one spots a suspicious score without a corresponding strategy or screenshot posted in the walkthrough, they will ask the poster to confirm the entered score is correct. Usually, it’s a typo, or a score accidentally entered on the wrong level, but not always. In those cases, the member will notify an admin, who can request the member provide a screenshot, or in extreme cases, their data files as proof. If that request is ignored, that member’s scores are subject to removal.

The system works pretty well. Many of the high score owners devoted a lot of time and effort into earning their spots, so when they get an email that it’s been beaten, you can bet they’ll check it out :)

Rank: DaBomb with 420 points
By Dawgbytez (@dawgbytez)

@kelani The honor system works for me! I’m a long time player but a newbie here so can you walk me through the score upload process or would a screenshot be the best way to go? Any advice is greatly appreciated. :)

Profile photo of KelaniRank: Master Slinger with 6405 points
By Kelani (@kelani)

@dawgbytez No problem. So we don’t fill up the board, I sent you a friends request so I can discuss it in private message. Just go to your profile, friends tab, then click Requests, and you should see it. Accept it, and i’ll send you a note. Just reply here if you get stuck on any of that. :)

Hello,

@tmax writing for angry angel @burn

About 3 weeks 4 days ago my girlfriend got the #1 score on Mooncake Festivalnlevel 1-7 during the challenge. It was her second underdog , but she hasn’t got it yet. Maybe you hand out the badges every month and so I apologize if I’m being impatient (for her, lol).

Anyhow, I think we fulfilled all the requirements and so if someone could look into that please, she’d be very happy. I have zero underdogs and so this will really let her brag to me when I start implying that I am better then her.

Thanks in advance, and sorry if I wrote this in the wrong section of the site, but it seemed like a reasonable place to inquire.

Happy Flinging All…. :)

Profile photo of KelaniRank: Master Slinger with 6405 points

@tmax @burn Actually, underdogs are usually handed out daily. I’ll look into it for you….er… for her. :o) If it checks out, you’ll see it on the B&R page very soon. Thanks for letting us know!

Also, just a tip for the future: It’s probably a good idea to post things like this in B&R, or if posted here, at least mention @ admins so someone will know. I just happened to notice this post. If I hadn’t, it may not have been seen by anyone.

Profile photo of KelaniRank: Master Slinger with 6405 points
By Kelani (@kelani)

@tmax @burn @Mumsie42 Just looked into this. I see the 2nd underdog listed for Angry Angel in the Club Underdog spreadsheet, so this wasn’t overlooked. The only thing I couldn’t find was a congrats mention in B&R. So, she was credited with the puppy, but it looks like we forgot to congratulate her for it. I’ll add a congrats mention right now. Sorry about that, and thanks for letting us know!

Profile photo of angry angelRank: Fling King with 4560 points
By angry angel (@burn)

nice spreadsheet !!….that is great…. will it look like two puppies on her badges section?…. or will it just look like one puppy ? Thats why I thought she hadn’t got it….. thanks so much for looking into it. We notice you all the time now on the challenges…. it’s fun.

Profile photo of KelaniRank: Master Slinger with 6405 points
By Kelani (@kelani)

@burn Yeah, the maintainers of that spreadsheet do a great job. It shows exactly how many underdogs you’ve actually earned, but you’ll just see the one badge on your profile. Some people have SO many puppies, adding 25+ more badges would look awful, like a big dog pound. :) It’s been suggested that the Underdog badge change depending on the # of puppies earned, (i.e. silver, gold, platinum), so that may happen at some point in the future.

Anyway, glad to help. I’ve played almost every challenge since I started doing them back in March, but didn’t post much. Now that I’ve joined Team ABN, you’ll probably see me around a lot more. :)

Profile photo of angry angelRank: Fling King with 4560 points

cool. Another way to represent multiple puppies could be like they do for notifications on phones and such with a little red circle and then the number of puppies inside of it and attach that to the puppy badge somehow….. just a thought

@admins Have any of you or anyone else ever had this happen? I launch the yellow bird then click to fire the laser into the first section and the screen goes black. I exit the level and go back in, try the same move and then the laser won’t fire at all as seen in the pic. I’ve tried restarting and reinstalling and the same thing happens. It’s the same on every Star Wars level with this bird. All my other games work fine. Video drivers are up to date, direct x is up to date. Any info at all on how to fix this? I don’t want to do a fresh install because I have completed everything with 3 stars.

@dawgbytez Hmm. That is a new one. I’m also on PC, so I tried to replicate this for about 20 min. with no success. What part of the screen is going black, and does it recover at some point? Just wondering because you said you could exit the level. I don’t think a fresh install would help much. If it was me, I’d go unset the Read Only flag on all the Star Wars folders, then try the regular reinstall (sometimes, updates set certain AB files to read only). If that didn’t help, I’d definitely send a support request to Rovio about this, make sure to include the info you posted here. You can do that here: http://www.rovio.com/en/about-us/contact

@kelani the whole screen goes black and you can barely see the reset button in the upper left so I’m able to reset it. I’m going to try your suggestion, if that doesn’t work I’ll download the newest version and try that.

@kelani and @fnurt actually there is a list of each daily challenge but it not maintained by ABN officially and is used only for underdog tracking. I am not sure who is doing it but @e-star used to.

@Swelld My duties have never been in the challenge here at the nest, maybe you are referring to @rdnzlrips82 who invented the Challenge in the Bloated Pig and maintained a list of the challenges, but that was a long time ago. Not sure if there is a list of all the challenges of the past and their result, but if there is, they would not be accessible without the right permissions.

@swelld afaik, you can see the previous challenge level on birdleader’s activity, but not results. Whatever list was used for underdog tracking before, I don’t think exists anymore. However, underdogs are currently tracked via the club underdog spreadsheet found at the bottom of the top pos tin badges & ranking group.

@admins – Are we having a December Daily Update Seasons Challenge Series like last year with Arctic Eggspedition? If so, see you in challenges on 1 Jan again, because there is no way that WP will be included (Stella 3 months later nothing yet and Seasons Slam Dunk not released indicates that).

@sal9 – thanks a lot for the response.

Yeah, you are right. I am quite aware that update/release dates are not within ABN’s control(or within its knowledge even, many times). Even Rovio’s own staff can’t give that kind of information. Accordingly I will never ask ABN for that kind of information, to be honest.

I read somewhere that the new update will feature a blue Terence with new powers. Something to look forward to – well, when it hits Windows Phone anyway. ;)

Enjoy the new levels. I will probably work on my favorite version, Rio, during December. Try getting all my scores above average… :)
