Angry Birds 5th Anniversary “BirdDay 5” Update Out Now

Happy BirdDay Angry Birds! Can you believe it’s been five — YES! FIVE — years? As we first mentioned a few days ago, to celebrate this monumental milestone Rovio has released a new ‘BirdDay 5’ update that is now available for iOS and Android via Google Play. In my best used car salesmen voice: DON’T WAIT, DOWNLOAD IT TODAY!

Since we’ve already written extensively about this unique update, well just jump right into the good stuff:

  • 30 BRAND NEW levels designed by fans — both young and old. Six of these awesome levels come from Nest and Pigineering users. A BIG congratulations to @sal9 and @les-toreadors for being two of the winners (and no, I did not make this decision). Our walkthroughs will appear here.
  • At least one new Golden Egg that is ready to be found, cracked, and whipped into an omelet. If you can’t find enough of these precious Golden Eggs to make an omelet then be sure to check out our complete guide
  • Bug fixes! – Squash’m baby!
  • Flock Favorites no longer has two additional “Coming Soon” episodes. BirdDay 5 fills the episode 30 spot.
  • The (RED) Golden Egg is now Golden Egg 33. The BirdDay 5 Golden Egg is #32.
  • Just a friendly reminder from the Nest Security Force™ that Power Up Scores are not permitted on our Angry Birds (ABo) leaderboard. Using a “Shockwave Black Bird” that is given to you in the starting lineup is perfectly fine. It is only considered a Power Up if you click on the PU button (not available for PC, but just emphasizing).

We are truly honored to be included in such an amazing group of partners, including CERN, Google Play, LucasFilm, National Geographic, NHL, Shanghai Oriental Pearl Tower, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Twitter, UNICEF, WWF and NASA. Wow! Just wow!

So what are you waiting for?! Grab the update and enjoy these fan inspired levels. Oh, and be sure to let us know what you think of the update below!

…and the winners are!

Wow, Happy 5th Birdday to Angry Birds! I started playing right around the 2nd Birdday three years ago.
These new levels are challenging & very creative. It took me almost an hour and a half to play through all 30. I earned 60 of the 90 stars, so that’s not bad.
I’m glad Rovio fixed the numbering on the Golden Eggs, now I just have to find the new one.

I have only played 2 levels so far and I like them. I was wondering if I could make a request of the @admins. Would it be possible to add the graphic of the contributor of the level to the level walkthrough. I think it would be nice to give that person some additional credit here for thier hard work.

Happy Birthday AB!

I wish I could say I found these new levels fun, but quite the opposite. These were some of the worst I’ve ever seen in terms of actually being fun to keep trying, just hard for hard’s sake. Nothing particularly clever about them in terms of taking them down, and the score thresholds were nuts. I resorted to using earthquakes to finish the last 20 levels. Never had used a single power-up before. On one level, I earthquaked the whole thing, seemingly to rubble, with four birds left, and it was still only 2 stars.

I don’t mind difficult levels, but I do appreciate some cleverness to them. No offense to the designers (because I did like the artistic nature of almost every new level!), but for actually FUN gameplay, I’d rather play something else. This was just a slog. Level 30-7 alone took a half hour of my time and all I could manage was 104K (I believe 105K is the three-star cutoff). Annoying, not fun.

Just one man’s opinion, of course!

Happy Birdday to my ongoing addiction, problem is…how can I get the update on Amazon Kindle? Doesn’t seem to be anywhere I can look. Uhhh, help?? ABN has been a great help to me for awhile, but I’m one of those “passive” members – usually nothing to post, being a low score guy & all. Thanks in advance to any that may be able to assist.

Thank you very much for the fast help. I must say, you, sal9, & birdleader have been such a great help to me ever since I bought this Kindle. I thank I’ve downloaded, &/or purchased every possible AB game. The walkthroughs are fantastic help for a goof like me. Hopefully, I’ll somehow find my way to a good score someday, & be able to post a method to help pay back the assistance I’ve received. Thanks again

Played about 12 or so of the new levels. I did encounter @sal9‘s level. Pretty interesting, to say the least. Also, I do note that the Google Play-themed levels are left unmarked in the iOS version, which is understandable. Encountered such level in my game play.

Happy Birdday Rovio!!! It does not seem like 5 years but time flies when one is fling’n.

Congrats to @birdleader and the staff for the Nest being mentioned as a partner. What an honor!!!

Three starred all the levels and this update is fun to play. Nice work at play, Rovio.
