Angry Birds Rio Mac Carnival Upheaval Update Now Available


On the heels of the Angry Birds Mac v1.6.2 update yesterday, comes the Angry Birds Rio v1.2.2 Mac update. This update includes:

  • 30 new levels in Carnival Upheaval
  • A new boss fight where you battle the head Marmoset
  • You can now unlock the secret Golden Beachball episode.  To do so you NEED A CODE that is available in the Rio DVD or Blu-ray.  For more info and step-by-step instructions on how to unlock the Golden Beachball levels check out this post. After some testing it doesn’t look like there is any way to unlock these levels yet on the Mac.  There is no  “Redeem Code” option like there is on the PC and hitting the “secret spot” doesn’t seem to work either.  If you have success unlocking the Golden Beachball levels please let us know.  What is strange is the version numbers are the same, so I would think Golden Beachball levels would be available.  Maybe we’ll have to wait for a future update.  We’ll keep this post updated as we know more.
  • Update! Looking for the Golden Beachball levels on your Mac? Well, as we just stated above they’re not in this version, but they are now available via a separate game called, “Angry Birds Rio Bonus Version”. It’s free.
  • 15 hidden papayas to find (links to walkthroughs)

In addition, below are a few helpful links:

  • Carnival Upheaval and Golden Beachball 3 Star Walkthroughs
  • Instructions on how to unlock the Golden Beachball Levels. You can obviously check this out if you want, but from we can tell neither method works currently.
  • Compete with us and improve your scores on our Rio Leaderboard
  • Check out the Rio Achievements. Achievements are currently only available to iOS users, but I’ve included the link in case you’re curious about what’s available.
  • Pro tip: Pop those pig balloons! If you’re looking to increase your score try popping (not just releasing them) the pig balloons, as they are worth 5,000 points each!

    One question regarding Angry Birds for Google+. Does it bring any new levels?, or is it the same thing?, was wondering because I cannot play games with my google+ account just yet.

    Oh, also, note that Angry Birds on G+ is really slow.

    Thanks. I’ve actually got it now as well. Working on my article, which will take some time as it’s going to be quite detailed.

    Thanks so much for sharing! Is there any chance you could take screenshots of the other facets, such as the leaderboards, achievements and any sharing features? I’m gathering this info for a detailed post. Was there anything else that you found interesting?

    2000 stars is a lot! When this has rolled out to more users we’ll create an AngryBirdsNest.com Circle so we can friend each other and access these levels!!!

    Harumph. I was hoping it wasn’t just me. It’s still very slow and choppy for me, and all of the other G+ games seem to work just fine. *pout*

    You can actually get the game if you follow the link that someone dropped above. Leave the forum post so we can start leaving our users and create the circle.

    Yeah, you need to have bought the Rio DVD to get the Golden Beachball on PC and Mac.

    I was wondering if anyone is having issues on your iPad with the new rio update? When I tap on the first level it takes me back to my app screen… Any clue what’s going on? My iPhone hashed no problems…

    As a temporary fix, operating in Airplane Mode and/or disabling WiFi has worked for most users.
