Angry Birds Rio Smugglers Plane Update Now Available

The latest update to the Angry Birds Rio (v1.4.0) is now available for iOS, Nokia, PC, and Android via the Amazon AppStore and Android Market, with other platforms coming soon. As the leaked images showed, this update takes place inside of Marcel’s plane and is aptly named, “Smugglers’ Plane”. The leaderboard and walkthroughs are live.

This update includes:

  • 15 new levels in Chapter 11 with Chapter 12 labeled, “Coming Soon”.
  • New hidden fruits in the form of Mangoes (seven hidden throughout Chapter 11).
  • New achievements to be unlocked (iOS only). Many are “hidden” achievements, so be sure to check out our list.
  • Boomerang Bird is now unlocked and he is ready to take his revenge on the smugglers!
  • Pro tip! Try to hit the luggage. It’s worth 5,000 points!

Bug fixes:

  • The most notable bug fix is the Carnival Upheaval 8-5 threshold bug (iOS only). The minimum 3-star score has been re-confirmed at 65,000.
  • The current status of the Stellarvore issue has been verified by a Rovio developer. He said, “Stellarvore will be available when all the levels are released and available :)”.

Helpful links:

  • Video walkthroughs for Chapter 11 are live.
  • Video walkthroughs for Golden Mangoes are available.
  • The leaderboards are live, so come compete with some of the best! Also, let us know how you like the new leaderboard format!

We will keep this post updated the update lands on more platforms. But for now, please enjoy these complimentary screenshots:

    When does this update will be available for pc?

    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    Mac and PC only seem to receive full episodic updates. This is only a half-episode, so it won’t likely appear on Mac/PC for some time.

    Hey Slim, Did you keep track on the amount of time between when the first half of an episode is released and the second half?

    Rank: Sling God with 32100 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    I think this will be a couple weeks. That’s typical. You would have to check the update logs though for specific dates.

    Really, just a couple of weeks? Interesting, I always had the feeling that it’s more than a month (the same as between second halves and new episodes).

    Nice! :-)

    More than a month IS a couple of weeks!!! :-)

    I like to be technical and technically/strictly a couple means two. I can understand saying a couple for a range between 1 and 3 (or even 4) items (weeks) but more than a month means like 5 weeks…

    By Chris

    So “a couple of questions” means less than 5 questions?
    “A couple of roses” means 2, 3 or maximum 4 roses?
    If you eat “a couple of peanuts”, you don’t eat more than 4 peanuts?
    You’re funny.

    If you have 60 achievements then you are fine for the time being. Try restarting your device. This will force GC to reload completely.

    after this episode, the game will end?
    or Rovio will make some new episodes or add more level to past chapter?

    Then go create your own app and release full-episodic updates. In the meantime, don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. Be grateful for free updates on a 99¢ app at whatever size or frequency Rovio chooses.

    Do you think there will ever be an update for AB Rio Free?

    Rank: DaBomb with 400 points

    Most likely, since they’re advertising all that Rio has to offer. Angry Birds Free is a good example – it has three levels for each of the themes. I suspect Rio Free will be the same.

    Rank: Sling God with 32100 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    We don’t have any information on that. Waiting to see if Rovio releases a press release on the topic, or what they have to say. What is concerning about those products is that they are not published by Rovio, so they could very well be phony.

    Again, just speculation. Have asked Rovio and will see if they respond.

    also this might not be a big deal but i also saw on Microsoft’s Intel Appup store, they were selling Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio for 4.99 instead of 4.95. plus it said the original one had 288 levels. does the intel versions have all the levels including facebook/twitter levels too or the same as the direct download from downloadangrybirds.com?

    i have a HUGE OCD problem. lol. I would like them to fix that sound issue in Angry Birds Seasons for PC. It’s bugging me real bad. lol. I’m not mad at all, i would just like them to fix it, that’s all.

    Rank: Sling God with 32100 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    Our contact has commented on the Seasons sound issue: “Update will be available later to fix this issue.”

    AppUp and Mac both sell at $4.99. That’s not a big deal. I don’t believe they have the Facebook/Twitter levels, so they probably just grabbed the text from the mot recent iOS descriptions. (You can see that elsewhere, such as “achievements” comments in Mac or Android descriptions)

    Rank: Hardened with 565 points
    By Austin (@austin18)

    would you happen to know why they didn’t fix the sound issue before they released it? Was it because it was released by accident a few months ago?

    Rank: Sling God with 32100 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    It looks like the sound file is simply compressed — which they may do while working in-house for resources’ sake. But I have no idea.

    If you meet Amazon’s requirements (which include being in the US), then you can purchase and download the ad-free version of Rio (for $.99). It should import your scores from your existing version.

    you know how when you update your iPhone’s OS to the next Major update (for example: for iPhone 4 iOS 4 to iPhone 4 iOS 5, the iPhone seems to be just a bit laggy because of all the new features that were mostly meant to run on the iPhone 4S which i think might have slowed my iPhone 4 down just a bit. At the second i release the birds from the slingshot, the game seems skip have a second which i think may be due to the major update to iOS 5. IDK. LOL

    By sal9 (@sal9)

    when there’s a major update, most apps will reset it’s preferences and will have location and notification on. That’s a major source for lag and shortened battery life.
    Clearing the apps from the multi tasking bar will help too.

    On iOS, with Game Center, you get achievements. On other platforms you don’t get something for the fruits but you get a star on the episode’s trophy when you 3-star all the levels.
