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.)

The “Challenge” is just within the app you already play. We hand-pick one level each day for the community to focus on. So if you play on iPhone, you would see how well you can do on this specific level on your iPhone.

@birdleader, regarding the Challenge in general, it’s wonderful that so many flingers have embraced the idea, but I have a few questions about the whole process. We see a lot of wonderful improved scores, & on a regular basis we see very high or even new top scores posted. Some of these are obvious attempts at sabotage which you guys deal with most efficiently. But we also see members posting very high/top scores, & it’s the only score posted on their leaderboard, which is an immediate red flag to those of us who watch the boards. I’m sure most of these scores are legitimate, perhaps an occasional visitor who hasn’t bothered to fill their leaderboards, plays the Challenge, then posts that score. It gets flagged, you remove it (does the person get told when or why their score is removed?), they repost it a couple of hours later, & so it goes on.
When a new top score is posted on the Challenge do you follow up regarding a screenshot – I’m sorry for asking but I honestly don’t know how the process works. There is also a sad lack of comments on the walkthroughs regarding these very high or top scores. To be honest, I don’t always comment when I do well on a Challenge, but I try to chip in when I can. I know you can’t force people to comment, but it’s part of what makes ABN such a wonderful community, the sharing of ideas, strategies & the encouragement fellow flingers provide to one another.
I guess the point to my ramblings is that I wonder if it’s time for a few gentle reminders, regarding the posting of solo scores & the courtesy of adding comments to go with great scores, perhaps to the header on the Challenge page. I don’t know how often it gets read all the way through, but it couldn’t hurt. I sense a bit of frustration out there – I know I feel this way at times, & I expect people who have their legitimate scores removed feel this way as well.
Thank you for listening.

When a user posts the Top Score on a challenge level that looks halfway legitimate, we do try to follow up with that user about it. In general, we would call a screenshot+strategy as confirmation of the score. That way, hopefully everyone can win.

I appreciate the challenge, because it gives an incentive to improve your score particularly on levels where you are below average, but even on those where you aren’t. However, it seems to me that some record of challenge results would be interesting to competitors. I don’t think that many people look at the challenge results the last minute, and once they’re gone, they’re gone. How about some permanent record? Could be the highest score achieved on the challenge, with rank corresponding to that score, and number of people getting above average and in top 50.

I’d like to make a suggestion in regards to the power up score situation. Rovio makes money on power ups, and I believe every app will eventually include them. Although I haven’t used my freebies, I’m not going to remember weather I did or not when I update all my scores. It’s a chore to update all the scores, let alone the app not letting you know if you used power ups. So perhaps next to the score, there should be a check button if power ups are used (or four if you want to know which ones. I think the new features should be embraced, as new users will be unaware of this issue. It would be nice to be able to upload the scores via an app straight to the website.

Rank: Sling God with 27505 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

1) We have suggested that Rovio create a distinction between scores with and sans Power Ups. We will have to wait and see what happens w.r.t. that issue.
2) The data files are encrypted, so we cannot include an automated uploaded.

@amslimfordy Do u think Rovio would ever consider an update for the die hard ppl that intend to never use Ppower ups ,,so we could opt to not have that button on the screen ,in doing so it would clear up any confusion with the validity of scores that will inevitably be questioned ,I would happily pay an initial $10 dollars for that ..Just a thought

@amslimfordy I realize there is the ability to switch the PU ,s off ,but what I meant is that it would be a preference to not have it there at all ,with no option ,like it was prior to there introduction ,my thinking being that then u would have that ability to differentiate between a scores that where done using PU,s ,..,.the thing is if u where to use a PU ,you can’t take it back ,and that would be stuck on your device .I know it’s very unlikely that this will become an option ,I suppose knowing I will never use them will have to suffice for now …perhaps an update that has 2scores in the right hand corner would be plausible down the road ..just thoughts ..Happy hunting to all

Rank: Sling God with 27505 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

That’s the idea we pitched, though to save space, I think it would be:
1) If highscore obtained with PU, have a lightning bolt on/next to it and tap/click to toggle between highscore with/sans.
2) If highscore obtained sans PU, display normally.

What is meant by don’t enter lower scores is that the user should not enter a score lower than their own previous score on the level because it would drop them down on the leaderboards.

@Pjng — Also, there is now a badge awarded if you make the top score on a challenge day. I think some people enter a very slightly lower score and then re-enter their top score, just so they’ll be on the improved list. Would not be fair in the case of level top score.

@Stocktoad @crivit

The policy would be that you have to defeat the Top Score at time of launch. If the Top Scorer bests himself, he is still entitled to the badge. Any user who defeats the previous score would still be entitled to the badge as well.

That is, if the Top Score at time of launch was 100k and the Top Scorer manages 110k later in the day, 100k is still the threshold for Underdog.

Luckily, the system would allow us to figure out what the original score was, so no worries there.

Hmmm….giving us a re-designed level where it’s near impossible to better a previous decent score. Nice bump in the road guys! (;

I just started this. My previous score was something like 68k and now it’s 72k, but I just don’t get it how is it possible to get even near those highscores o.O

@waimea, I’ve still got the level that’s shown on the first video with the Snowball entry point and I can’t even approach my original score of 78755, much less surpass it. I can’t even begin to fathom how those scores above 80k were achieved.

It slipped through the cracks. Sorry @waimea @Lisko @AmanDeep. With nearly 2000 levels, it’s hard to keep track of everything.

Apparently I should do a little more research on the levels chosen. I apologize, as well.

No worries, @rdnzlrips82. Way way too many levels to keep track of. This is the benefit of them only lasting 24h ;)

No problem :) @rdnzlrips82 No need to apologize :D

For me the daily challenge is just a great way to increase my score, sometimes you hit the right spot and get a really nice score, sometimes you don’t :D

@amslimfordy , that’s understandable. I probably have more spare time than you do, so if you’re interested I’ll gladly vet the remainder of the AB Sp levels for future challenges.

Various updates have probably also set other old highscores in stone – or rendered them obsolete – but my experience and backups are limited to AB Sp. Some levels come to mind instantly, eg. 1-24 (can’t split BB early enough anymore) and 3-10 (fixed instability) but if I devote an evening to this, I’m sure I could flag several more.

If you get a volunteer per game, you’d have a nice spreadsheet by next week. Perhaps also flag levels where the current highscore is outrageous, jot down which levels you’ve already featured, and every morning during breakfast run the rest of the levels through a Rube Goldberg “ABN Daily Challenge Picker” machine.

Tempting idea?

Perhaps we could form some sort of cooperative of Nesters that could research levels that have changed since their debut. Perhaps a Forum thread to place these changes like the Self Destructive levels? Kind of like @burpie mentioned. Assign people different episodes, etc.

@rdnzlrips82, The main problem I see with this is that someone would have to have screen captures of all the levels when they first came out to compare with the current level. This level is an example of 3 versions, along with ABo, Poached Eggs 3-5 changed.

Also, aren’t there differences between platforms. I can’t remember off hand, but I sorta remember a few levels scattered here and there where the android version is very slightly different than iOS (I could be wrong)

@sparty83 The original screenshots already exist on site in the Episode walkthrouhs. Perhaps we could convince the Admins to tell us if they have been updated to reflect recent updates. Also, perhaps anyone that wants to help, could let us know here. And as soon as we have enough recruits, we could move to PM discussions and the Admins could delete the thread.
These are all ideas of course.

Thanks, Slim!

So there’s a start. Now if we can get a team assembled, we can make this happen. If anyone is interested in joining, let us know here by Monday, April 15th, 2013. (If that’s okay with the Admins.) Then this thread can be deleted and all communique will transpire via PM.

If this is not okay with the Admins, please advise of a better location. I didn’t know if you wanted me to begin preliminary recruitment in the Forum, or not.

@amslimfordy, @rdnzlrips82…please guys, no apology needed! As I said, it was an ‘interesting bump in the road’! You guys do a great, and often thankless job of keeping all us bird-maniacs happy and challenged – especially in this time of PC update drought! Nice to see some new names up on the leaderboard too! Really, thanks for all you do.

I just automatically assume apologetic mode when a bump in the road comes up. I am just glad a silly little idea I had could be taken above and beyond my expectations.

I’ve got to say that today’s Challenge is possibly one of the hardest levels to get a high score on, it took me the better part of today to raise my old score by about 3k…At least I made it to the top 50. Happy Hunting Everyone!

Sorry, but for today’s challenge I truly did obtain that score without power-ups, it’s just that I didn’t know how to submit a picture of me clearing with that score. Please understand thanks.

I truly believe that the score is achievable. The only thing that makes it look suspicios is that it’s the only score on you’re leaderboards. It seems that you’re new in the Nest, but it would be better if you inserted the scores on your leaderboards so that there would be a score for every level in the episode.

There has been a lot on cheaters who have just added on top score and nothing else.

On what device you’re playing?

@lisko – I too am suspicious of the score for the same reasons as you state. I checked his/her profile and it states Android. The fact that this member is new to the site may mean that they have not played many AB games yet, but even so, they should have scores entered for levels 11-1 through to 11-6, as without these, level 11-7 wont open!

@Wendellism — You really need to follow the suggestions of Lisko and leggy and enter at least your scores for 11-1 to 11-6 in addition to 11-7. The admins (most likely AMSlimfordy, who said he would check later today) routinely delete high scores that are the only ones entered for an episode, let alone for any AB gaime.
@iBird — This advice holds for you also.

By MVNLA2 (@mvnla2)

@Wendellism — I should mention that since if the score can be verified, you will be eligible for the Underdog badge, you need to comment on the walkthrough page saying what your strategy was. You will also have to figure out how to submit a screenshot. I think you play on Android, correct? I don’t know how do it on that device, but you could try Googling “Android screenshot” or looking in the forum on Path of the Jedi badge, where I think there is a lot of info on screenshots.

Depends on the device I think, but on the Nexus 7 to take a screenshot it’s the power button and down volume button simultaneously. Should be the same for other Androids as well.

Question @amslimfordy, Shouldn’t the Daily Challenge level be available on all platforms? Today’s challenge is a level that is not available on the PC platform yet. Makes me feel a little left out as I try to improve my own personal score even though I don’t personally post my score.

We set the Challenge level far in advance. Not all levels are available on all platforms. What about say Windows Phone — they don’t have a few apps, let alone all levels.

I was just wondering if there is a place where you can see how the previous challenges ended up? I found the list of the underdog badges, but it would be like to see how the improved list ended up. I’ve got no chance to check the list just before the challenge changes ’cause usually I’m asleep at that point :D
