Angry Birds Happy Birdday Update Coming December 11th

On Sunday, December 11th Angry Birds turns 2! To celebrate this glorious day — which also happens to be my birthday — Rovio will be releasing a “Happy Birdday” update to the original Angry Birds (notice how it says “Birdday”, not “Birthday”). Per Rovio’s blog, the birthday update will include 15 new birthday cake themed levels and a special birthday achievement. In addition, as a special present ALL episodes will be unlocked and available to play.

This update is out now (read more) and includes some notable changes!

It’s important to note:

  • This update will land on iOS on Sunday, with other platforms coming online thereafter. We don’t know how long it will take for Android, PC, Mac, etc. to receive the Happy Birthday update.
  • Our post on December 6th titled, “Angry Birds Episode 7 Update Coming Soon” is obviously related to this update.

Rovio’s not stopping there, they have plenty of other real-world birthday events lined up, including:

  • Fans in the US can celebrate by heading over to their local Barnes & Noble, which will have special events and giveaways from 11 AM to 3 PM. Angry Birds aficionados can join a scavenger hunt to find the Mighty Eagle or enter a raffle to win special Angry Birds prizes…
  • Toys ‘R’ Us is also getting into the “birthday” spirit. Fans can get 25% off Angry Birds plush toys plus a code that unlocks an Angry Birds Google Chrome bonus level.
  • For Angry Birds fans in Japan, Rovio CMO and Mighty Eagle Peter Vesterbacka will be giving a special presentation at the Apple store in Ginza…
  • The Forbidden Planet stores in the UK will also be celebrating Angry Birds’ second birthday with merchandise previously unavailable in the UK.

You can read in more detail about each one of these events on Rovio’s blog post. And, as always, we will have walkthrough videos and leaderboards up as soon as humanly possible.

And most of the comments above make the reason why Rovio has stopped announcing dates and plans for their updates… :-(

Agreed. Looking a gift horse in the mouth.

Were is my update for happy birdday update for my android . stupid ripoff !!!!

Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Few things.

1) Don’t use all caps.
2) If you read the comments in the release post, you would see that the update is coming to Android this week.
3) Ripoff? Really?? Either you have the app from Android Market, in which case it is FREE, or you got it from Amazon and it is $0.99. Oh yeah, you got ripped off.

Did any of you guys get a code from Toys R Us? If you did, please post it here, thanks!

Will this update come through Amazon appstore or Market? I don’t want to lose progress on the Market one

Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Both, I suppose.

Rank: Master Slinger with 7205 points
By TruckDriver (@truckdriver)

Both, as Slim stated. However, if the past updates are any indication, it will probably come through the amazon app store before it hits android market.

Why does Android have 2 AppStores?

Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Android Marketplace is the norm, but Rio was originally launched as part of a US-promotion on the (then-new) Amazon AppStore. Amazon features the same apps, but for 99¢ and thereby ad-free.

I just received my angrybird birthday edition. It only has one page, so where does the golden egg go? Is this a glitch or a normal thing?

Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Golden Eggs go on the big Golden Egg page (which is the last episode), same as every other Golden Egg in the original app…

By Dvitali

Strange bug I have on the birthday 8-15 golden egg/ donut, screen froze, no movement, just game center and music . Even could not back out of angry birds, so I deleted the app then reload the game. Just replay every level again on birthday, as I did the 8-15 golden egg again nothing pop up. Finish the level and watch the credit I notice a golden egg . It was golden egg 1-5 I also have golden egg number 27 and no other.

I don’t quite follow. There is no Golden Egg in Birdday 18-15.

By Dvitali

(Sorry I should said cake instead of egg). but still that did not pop up after destroying the chest several time and why the screen froze to where you cannot return to the selection screen remain a mystery to me.

Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Because destroying the chest is only Part 2. The final aspect of obtaining the cake is, well, obtaining the cake in the middle of the level.

I got 3 Stars in all Levels! But the Golden egg didn’t appear.(That’s ok anyway)

Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

There is no Golden Egg for earning 3 stars on all levels.
