Angry Birds Rio Introduces Birdcoins!

Angry Birds Rio Introduces Birdcoins!

Angry Birds Rio Version 2.4.0 has landed on iOS and Android via Google Play, and introduces a new currency: Birdcoins

What we know:

  • Daily Rewards: Log in every day to receive birdcoins – up to 100 birdcoins on the fifth day!
  • Gameplay Rewards: Receive a birdcoin by getting 2 or 3 stars on any level that you play or replay.
  • Power Ups: Can be purchased with Birdcoins now.
  • Birdcoins can be used to unlock levels early (e.g. you don’t have to 3 star or obtain all the feathers). This is especially useful for those players who don’t use the Mighty Eagle much, as you can now unlock the feather bonus levels by using coins.

    Well, the graphics become fuzzy and blurry, at least on the iPod Touch 5th Generation. Before the update came, the Graphics were much better. Hopefully Rovio will fix the graphics.

    In other news, Angry Birds Transformers has received a Version 1.6.15 Update for iOS users. According to this update, it is said that this update fixes the crashing issue when users updated to Version 1.6.13.

    Keep things furious, folks! :D

    I still hope that they will eventually add more levels (with Rio 3 coming out!)

    @rowdypup Hang on, we don’t know for sure if a Rio 3 is coming. I’m not trying to be rude, but is there any evidence that there will be a Rio 3? If so, then I am excited for more! I just hope that those Rio 3 Levels will include Silver, the Stella Flock, and possibly Tony from “On Finn Ice”! :D

    Really? Rio 3 is not announced in any websites yet. Also, I hope there’ll be cutscenes in the previous episodes and more levels in the new episodes. This bird coins update is not too excited.

    @dungphant What do you mean by, “I hope there’ll be in the previous episodes and more levels in the new episodes.”?

    Cutscenes – which also means comic, appears at the start and the end of the previous episode. And I want new episodes with new levels.

    @furyslinger200 If they even make a Rio 3, I doubt that Rovio will add the Stella flock or Tony, because they are game-exclusive, but Silver just may have a chance

    @dungphant I read somewhere that Rio 3 should come out in 2017, along with Frozen 2

    @rowdypup How do you get any awareness or evidence there will be a Rio 3?

    By the way, I received an Angry Birds Epic update, but I can’t seem to get it to work. I only have a funny word for this update, even though I consider all Angry Birds games to be great…

    MURP!

    MIxels reference intended! LOL XD

    Anyway, keep things furious! :D

    @admins,

    Another note, just because you get all 5 coins for 3 starring a level it doesn’t mean you can’t get more coins for that level. When it first came out, I 3 starred all Smugglers Den just to get the coins. 2 days later, I replayed a few levels and I was able to get 5 more coins for 3 starring the levels.

    It appears that there will be no limit of the number of coins.

    Actually, there is a limit. Once you get 2 to 3 stars in a level, the coins can NOT be reobtained.

    Not entirely true, you can re-collect coins after a while. I collected coins from the same level two days on a row.

    Noticed same thing while flinging through entire Smuglers Den. Now have 600+ coins after 4 days of 3 starring and then some a single episode even though paid 75 for not having to do feathers. Seems like as good a reason to finally roam through all of Rio1 as there is ever gonna be.

    @sal9 I see. I’ll give it a try the next time I play Angry Birds Rio.

    By Birdfeeder

    I’ve been experimenting and it appears that you can collect both rewards (i.e. 2 star and 3 star) twice for each level.

    Not sure what the limit of the number of times one can earn coins for a given level but I have earned 5 coins at least 4 times for Smuggler’s Den 1-4

    When it first came out, I 3 starred all Smugglers den. On sunday, the 17th. I went back and 3 starred level 1-4 again, and again got 5 coins. On the 21st, I again 3 starred level 1-4 and got 5 coins. Toinght I just 3 starred it and again got 5 coins.

    See my post below for the answer.

    I have almost deleted this game since it hasn’t got an update for almost 1 year!

    By Birdfeeder

    After a bit more experimentation, I’ve solved the riddle of the coins…

    Once you’ve 3-starred a level, you won’t get any more coins UNTIL you then repeat it and win less than 3 stars. It works like this:

    – If you 3-star a level and then 2 star it, the 3-star coins will become available again.

    – If you 3-star a level and then 1-star it, both the 2-star and 3-star coins will become available again.

    So the quickest strategy to collect coins is to find a level where you can easily alternate between 1-star and 3-star wins. That way, you will get 5 coins each time you get the 3-star win. I haven’t tried many, but so far the easiest I have found is Level 13 of High Dive.

    Does anyone have any easier/quicker levels where you can alternate between 3 star and 1 star wins?

    By Birdfeeder

    Answered my own question!

    The easiest and quickest level to alternate between three stars is Playground level 1. For 3 stars, knock the structure over with 1 bird. For one star, waste the first three birds, then knock the structure over with the fourth.

    So no new levels? When I downloaded the update it said to use birdcoins to unlock new levels, but I guess that is not the case if I already played all of the levels in the game. Bummer!

    Any Android users notice that this update crashes left and right on Android 5.1? I have a Galaxy S6 and I can barely get through any levels without it freezing. Argh!

    By Susan Smith

    this is a shameful way to make money. Your coin prices and redemption is ridiculous. I used real money to buy the power ups, but I have deleted this game all together. shame on you for your greed grab. I will no longer support any game you do this with. People who didn’t spend money think it is a god thing. I know better. Good luck I hope you fail because the Japanese are starting to kick butts like yours and King co.

    Who will waste real money for virtual money? I want it for free! And if I could do that, then I would be spending as almost as buying a laptop. And yes, if you are from India, then you would see the lowest and highest prices are ₹30-₹60 to ₹3000-₹6000! It would be almost equal to going to beauty parlour for a makeover.

    Why?
    This comment is not my nature but when I analyze the benefit to the players…is there one?

    By Shirley

    I bought coins the other day for Angry Birds Rio….ever since then, it keeps randomly adding coins. I’m up to 800,000 . What’s going on?
