Break out the ice scrapers and start your engines! Angry Birds Go! v1.2.0 is now available for iOS and Android, and brings loads of new content!
This update includes:
- The new Sub Zero episode! Speed your way along the snowy and icy terrain in the arctic battle of snowmobiles. There are 18 races to win.
- Seasonal event tweaks! There is no “boss” in this episode, but rather a difficult Slalom race, where you must coordinate your way through the gates like an Olympic athlete! Also, “Fruit Splat” has been replaced with “Ice Splat”.
- Loads of new carts! There’s only one cart available for coins (Tar Barreller L1 for 2,000 coins), several available for gems, several available by TELEPOD, and a one available as a $1.99 IAP (with a bonus of coins and gems).
- New Daily Event to earn some extra coins and gems! Compete in this event daily to increase your reward: Day 1 is 200 coins, day 2 is 400 coins, day 3 is 4 gems, day 4 is 600 coins, day 5 is 6 gems, day 6 is 1000 coins, and day 7 is 10 gems. Also, you can connect to Facebook and double the reward! Note that the event seems to run 1AM to 1AM Eastern Time (10PM Pacific).
- Dozens of miscellaneous tweaks, bug squashes, etc. Notable among these are a display of all opponent CC’s at the race start, squashing some impossible-to-beat challenges, and more!
So hurry to the App Store and start tearing up the snow before it all melts! It’s getting downright balmy here in the northeast with temperatures approaching the 50s, so enjoy the winter wonderland while you can!
And be sure to check out the Angry Birds Go! Strategy Guides we have on site!
Why there is a “preview” sign on the chapter banner in chapter’s selection menu?
@kooop I might guess there is more to come in later updates, since it’s only 1 chapter instead of the normal 3.
There are likely going to be more than three chapters, as there are Red, King Pig, Bomb, Hal, and something that looks like a minion pig.
Oops, I meant Telepods of them. I saw Hal, Chuck, and Bomb at Target. After playing Slalom though, I think they will only add the karts.
thx, hope so
Display of all opponents’ CC was already in v. 1.1.0
Well, this update isn’t the most likable of all, I think.
– Rovio nerfed the carts so that in some Stunt races, when a cart wasn’t supposed to break after falling off a ridge with a certain amount of strength (eg: track 1 beginning), it breaks almost everytime I try before I upgraded my stats in Strength.
– All chapters, with the exception of Seedway, have only one Coin cart available. What…
– Some race tracks are also nerfed too, with fewer coins available in-race (not confirmed)
This is not bearable at all, imo.
That was in v1.1.0 also. I only noticed the first two, though.
It seems like Rovio only wants more money now. Back in the old days I remember Rovio tried to do so if you had purchased ME for ABclassic you would get it for all the other Ab apps as well.
@bad-piggies-2 Isn’t it in the nature of any company to make money? Remember that Go is a freemium app, so they aren’t making very much on this app up front.
@amslimfordy, but i said cannot play with internet connection, i can see when running, downloading 0.29MB, installing update, then play screen appear, after tap on play, it close.
Seem something wrong with that download on my device.
I have the same, did you find a fix?
2nd challenge in Ice Splat mode: “use boost 10 times”
There is only one boost in the whole race, and when I use it, it does not count.
@chriss From the wording, it will add boost usage between tries. It doesn’t have to be done in a single run.
I know, Slim, that’s not the problem. The problem is that it does not count when I use it.
@chriss . I did try with more than half Drivers and I never see any boost pad. It was yesterday . I thought maybe de drivers are tired..!!! I did try again this morning : same not results : I did not see any boost pad. If there are !!! Where they are too hidden ; or not boost pat at all…!!!
@nacho18: When you drive to the very left at the beginning, you see something that looks like a boost. I’m not sure if it is a boost because it does not really boost. Apart from this, there is no other boost that can be used, and as I said before, this boost does not count. So how can we do this challenge?
@chriss . Just to skip !!! But it’s ver costly ; depends how many you need for next skip !!!
Yes, but I don’t want to skip. Rovio has to make challenges that are doable.
I still hope that one of our nesters will find the solution.
I am agree with you @chriss . But ROVIO ; doesn’t care. I wrote twice telling and asking for fixing and doing very doable Challenges. And you what their aswer was: a very Polite answer . They designed this game for increase their checking account. Really bad for us.
Boost pads are on the short cuts there are about three of them
Hello combread!!!! WHERE ARE THE SHORT CUTS. I drive all over !!! And couldn’t found it …!!! Can you tell us where do you found it. Question did you achieve the Mission and did you pass this Top Impossible Challenge.!!!
I agree with you. I played this level 20 times, no boost pads and no numbers that were added to the counter. The red arrows at the start on the left do not provide a number in the counter for boost pads. I even used the “Boost upgrade” at the beginning of two races and that did not record any numbers in the counters. I wrote Rovio a GO Game Support email to report the observation on Friday.
The game is fun to play and the ice does provide a different challenge in trying to steer each of the carts. Went through 11 Challenge rounds and it is a bit different from the other levels. I have found that collecting the “least” of something does make it interesting. In every other level, one wants to get the coins, etc. Trying to avoid them does make it fun to find new travel paths through the level.
Also noticed they added a new big cc kart to speedway, rocky road, air and stunt.
Wonder when they will come out with the telepods for the new carts and the Sub Zero level? Have not seen anything in the stores or ebay for Series 2 except for the one AB post but that was outside the US based on the writing on the price tag.
GO is a fun game to play and a good alternative to the sling, birds and pigs. Nice work at play Rovio.
@wrw01: please let us know when Rovio has answered you. I wonder what they say about the boost problem.
Rovio responded and said there are no boost pads on this level and they are investigating this along with ten other notes I sent about other levels that do not given credit when the requirements are met. Seems like GO has some quality control issues especially in the first two race tracks in the game.
That’s good to hear, @wrw01. Hope they will let us know when these issues are fixed. Thanks for having contacted Rovio.
Hi!! @chriss there is above on this Posting that yesterday March 24 he said the Boost Pads are on Short Cuts : I did tried but couldn’t found out any short cut : they are Close . I did it to cruise or jump …!!! No results. The guy which wrote the posting is : cornbread . I asked him how he did it but not answer until know ..!!!! I don’t know if you Want To Try..!!! Check above . Please and let me know what you got it.
@nacho18: This is nonsense. In this race all the shortcuts are locked. The shortcuts are on the right-hand and left-hand side. There is only one shortcut at the beginning that is not locked. But as I said earlier, it does not count if you use the boost pad. You might contact Rovio again. You must describe the problem better.
@nacho18: After having replayed the race a lot of times, I can say that the red signs are not boost pads. So the whole race has not one single boost pad. That explains why the counter is always on 0.
I think the problem is that the people who program a game don’t play it, and the people who play it don’t program it.
All in all pretty cool update
This update was satisfying, but also had many disadvantages. I love the Daily Events and the Slalom races. But I agree with you, @adrianchau, the stuff you mentioned is….. blah.
Did you know, that you can (slowly) earn money by doing the daily event,again and again
And the characters won’t run out of energy, either! The only problem here is that they give you a random character (sometimes not the one you want).
Yes, but there are other races where you earn 4 times more coins in the same time.
It’s me, the anonymous someone. My account won’t let me be logged in on this page for some reason. Anyway, I am not having any problems with this update. Maybe it’s cause I just got my new device with a better operarating system. My old nook couldn’t run this game, so I got it right after the update. I guess I’m not as mad as you guys, but after reading your complaints, I really am disappointed with Rovio. This may have sounded weird, but I was in a hurry.
Oh, so NOW it logs me in! I feel humiliated.
Yay, I very like to break ice in Piggy Island!
But can’t play it on BlueStacks app player because it has a Data for Android version.
Any tips to I put data to BS?
Wow! When I was playing a race I found a coin doubler one the way that made my coins double for that race!
I found it too, i was dissapointed that i just got little amount of coins just for winning a race,but then i see a ribbon, i got it,and then i got many coins!!!
I hope they change the amount of coins you can earn in this episode, since there aren’t that many you can get. But I’m guessing that’s Rovio’s way of getting people to buy gems :(
Kind of a difficult track to race on. but since it’s ice & snow, it’s expected. (a little hint: don’t max out your speed cc..it’ll make things harder) but then again, I thought Air and Stunt were hard when I first played them. But I do like the daily challenges, though.
Perhaps that may be one of the fee favourable aspects of the new update..
Aww… I was hoping for the Ice Bird’s name to be revealed. His power would be so COOL!
Hey! Shouldn’t the new multiplayer update come out in a little bit? I can’t wait!
This level is a lot of fun and challenging, I cant wait until more chapters are available!!!
No new characters. However, couldn’t Angry Birds Go! add pigs such as Hambo, Freckled Pig and the Fat pig?
I’d say Professor Pig, Chef Pig and Chronicler Pig. Hambo is exclusive to Toons. Ooh! Maybe Chef Pig and his Egg Beater, Professor Pig’s Atom Splitter, Chronicler Pig’s Bookworm, Fat Pig’s Mega Pork, and Freckled Pig’s Bad Piggy!
And Power Ups! Sling Scope will show all other racer’s slingshot paths, Birdquake will shake everyone up at the start, and the Mighty Eagle will destroy everyone’s kart (I was going to have Super Seeds, but the Target Kart was exactly what it was going to do).
I say Ice Bird! He fits perfectly in Sub Zero!
@fooly8 ; maybe you right : this Sub Zero it’s a Preview : maybe ROVIO will release later 2 more Tracks ..!!! So on that will come out Ice Bird. I do hope for that Big Surprise. Come in up ..?!! It will be a Big Hit from ROVIO.
Sorry I miss spell : @fooly08. Agree with you on Ice Bird.
I’d love the Ice Bird too, but he is only exclusive to ABSpace. He could explode, like Bomb, but instead of damaging karts, he would freeze them!
My idea was the same one, but it also makes nearby terrain slippery too.
Did anyone notice the new carts for Seedway,Rocky Road,Air,and Stunt.They all cost 9,000 and resemble some carts in the series 2 telepods.
Oops it was already mentioned in the post.I don’t really look carefully :\
A little off-topic comment. I was playing this game on Newgrounds, and it reminded me a lot of Angry Birds.
Which game? Specifaccly
Off – Toppic . !!! The Trailer for RIO 2 is out ..!! So the Movie it’s on the way.they say : movie it’s open on cinemas begging April 11 2014 : wonder if …!!!
ROVIO will Lauch an other RIO2 App. Or : like seasons Part 2.
I personally would like an New App. But I’ll accept part2 or anything on correlation over the new Movie.
@nacho18 Already happened: Angry Birds Rio High Dive Episode Now Available!
Ohh. I am sorry @amimfordy. I forgot it . That’s true . My head it’s crazy with a lot updates from ROVIO . We’ll hopefully ; ROVIO will tease us with something or anything else about RIO2. I wish .!!!
Just to check that it’s not just me. We still only have the “Preview” of one third of the total Sub Zero levels, right?
I think so.
Do the daily challenges quit after 7?
ROVIO . doesn’t mentioned nothing about it !!! So possible will remain until they will cut that beautiful helping. I hope for a while not.
@mvnla2 If you keep going, it looks like the Day 7 reward keeps repeating, meaning gems galore for dedication!
@nacho18 Um what?
Hi @mvnla2 … I just Played the daily Event …!!! It says. Day 7. And today it’s day 8.!!!! Lucky day !! lucky number. Like Slim said you keep going. ( I do too ).
Neat! Not to mention I’ll get 20 gems per day, since I logged into Facebook just for this purpose, also lets me beat my friends scores whenever required, since none of them play.
I seem to be a day behind, probably because I started out playing with an iffy wifi connection. Do the tracks and characters you play with change daily? I don’t remember getting Chuck yesterday, but may not have been paying enough attention. Did anyone else get a Sub-Zero course on day one or two? I did, but not since.
For the record today’s course for me was Air.
@AMSlimfordy — What do you mean, don’t you speak Nacho? Perfectly understandable to me.
20 gems every day. This must be a joke, right? There are karts that cost 9000 gems. I have to play 450 days to earn enough gems to buy this kart. For all 5 karts I have to play more than 6 years!
Rovio is completely out of touch with reality.
Not even IAP can help. 5 karts cost 9000 gems each, and 5 other karts cost 6000 gems each. Makes a total amount of 75000 gems. In order to buy that many gems via IAP, you would have to spend 1150 dollars!!!
I think the cheapest thing is to buy Telepods. Where can I buy the Telepods series 2?
It is clear that Rovio wants to make more and more money (it’s the goal of any company) via IAP or Telepods.
@chriss You could maybe get these 20 gems, advance the time in your device and play inmediately the daily event again (and again and…). So you could get much more than these 20 gems in some minutes. Is it possible?
Although possible, it’s uncomfortable to use your device with no actual time. And don’t know if your Rovio account could be “affected”.
@wazemank: I just tried, but it’s not possible. There is a countdown, and you cannot change this countdown.
I think you have to wait for awhile before series 2 is released. I know that HK has those toys being released in certain shop.
I believed this are the “leaked” goods, where the factory produce more and sell it directly to toys distributor directly.
Probably a stupid question, so go ahead and bring your best!
My son is trying to get the subzero episode for ab-go. We have an antique kindle fire. Is the update not available in this format? Same goes for epic…
Anyone know? Any plans to release subzero (and/or epic) in kindle format?
Rovio would be better equipped to answer that question, Justin.
