Angry Birds Seasons Ham Dunk: The Finals Update Out Now!

With the NBA Finals starting tonight, Angry Birds Seasons Ham Dunk: The Finals (v5.2.0) is now available for iOS and Android via Google Play, with more platforms coming soon!

This update comes with a decent amount of additional content, so let’s get rolling!

This update includes:

  • 7 new levels added to the Ham Dunk episodes! Some are themed around certain aspects of the NBA Finals fever. Our walkthroughs are live if you need help.
  • New Golden Egg! You must collect all seven pieces of the Golden Ring to unlock it. If you need help finding any of the Golden Eggs hidden in Angry Birds Seasons check out our complete guide.
  • Pig Days! 9 more levels added to the “Coming Soon” list! For a complete listing of which levels are released when, see our Pig Days Guide. The next level is set to be released in a few days. Note: Some users had issues with the “Cloud” download system last time, and it looks like it is being used again. Please let us know of any issues.
  • No new achievements for iOS, which is expected since the SD version is completely full and the HD version only has 4 points available.
  • Slam Dunk Bonus! Each bird or basketball which falls through the hoop counts — no, not for 3 points — but for a whopping 5,000 points!

Another minor addition is that once per level, the Shockwave Power-Up can be used for free. Just a friendly reminder the scores obtained using Power Ups are not permitted on our Leaderboards. And of course, the new app icon is sweet!

Helpful links and notes:

  • Ham Dunk 3-star walkthroughs will be live soon.
  • Ham Dunk Total Destruction walkthroughs will take more time. Check out our other videos in case you get stuck; we have most levels of Seasons, and all levels released over the past year or so.
  • The leaderboards will be live very soon. Remember that scores obtained with Power Ups are not permitted on our leaderboards.

    I’d say it’s nice for Ham Dunk to have 3 updates.

    1. The episode debut.

    2. The All-Star.

    And 3. The NBA Finals.

    As bowling terms would’ve said it best, Ham Dunk has a TURKEY of updates. Get it?! TURKEY?! LOL! I crack myself up! XD

    Okay, maybe that joke is not that good, but rest assured, these new Ham Dunk NBA Finals levels are nice, the darkened background is a nice change, these levels have animations at the beginning of each level, and more!

    Have a nice day! :D

    Did you get all 7 ring parts? If so, you should contact Rovio’s support site. If not, you need to find them and get them in the 7 levels.

    Ive never seen the Pigs so aggressive before

    Rank: Well Traveled with 1910 points
    By furyslinger2000 (@furyslinger200)

    Yeah. You know, I remember that one of those times when I saw Pigs acting aggressive is in one of the Fazer Angry Birds Candy Bags commercials, which were created back in 2012, the year Stella the Pink Bird came to be. You know, I remember that 5 Fazer Angry Birds Candy commercials appear.

    1. The teaser.

    2. The factory.

    3. Animated Commercial.

    4. Animated Commercial (Short Version)

    5. Animated Commercial for Fazer Angry Birds Chewing Gum & Lollipops.

    There’s a kind of easter egg that you get when you get all 21 stars of the 4th page. So at first, the score is 0-20 (in birds’ favour), and increases by 1 for each star. At the start, the bird is mad and the pig is happy. But get 21-20 and the bird is happy, and the pig mad.

    Oh, NBA again… Rovio out of idea?
    I hate adding new animation, background effect, cause lagging on my old device, slow respond.

    By hristin27

    You can turn off all the animations in the settings. The button looks like a mountain top.

    Where’s the golden egg in new update and how do you unlock the ring

    Rank: Well Traveled with 1910 points
    By furyslinger2000 (@furyslinger200)

    The ring IS the Golden Egg in this update, and in order to unlock the ring’s level, you must play each of the 7 seven levels and find the 7 ring pieces, 1 hidden in each level. It’s kind of similar to the Golden Mooncake level in the 2011 Moon Festival episode where you must find 8 Mooncake Pieces that are hidden in 8 of that episode’s levels.

    Can’t really blame Rovio for capitalizing on an NBA sponsorship but…. I, too, am waaaayyyy over the NBA-themed stuff! Would love to see some “Season”-al themes that fit the season! Tennis anyone??? :-)

    @ubermom how about Hockey? then HockeyBird will have a REAL debut in a Angry Birds game, not just a “costumed” Chuck in Angry Birds Friends

    @sal9 This isn’t the only news to take note on June 4th. Some more news just came a few hours later after the NBA Finals Update for Ham Dunk came.

    According to the Angry Birds’ Facebook Page, I have noticed that Angry Birds Fight! is finally going to be released in about 7 days, because the worldwide release date for Angry Birds Fight! is going to be June 11th, 2015.

    It wont be long now until we finally battle it all out! :D

    @sal9 You’re welcome! I am happy to try my best to be a good asset to this community site by pointing out news that I somehow noticed. :)

    I still wonder how you, BirdLeader, and AMSlimfordy are able to make articles about new content and other things that involve Angry Birds and Rovio games.

    Anyway, have a awesome day and keep things furious!! :D

    Hey players! As you know the Angry Birds Seasons NBA Ham Dunk: Finals update was released today. I hope you have fun playing the game, I can’t wait to get your feedback on the new levels!

    Rank: Master Slinger with 5495 points
    By epicbird (@filipersr)

    These levels are great but we want to see other episodes than Ham Dunk as Hockey, with Hockey Bird or football with Mighty Philadelphia Eagle (If possible) or something new. Seasons is one of my favorite angry birds but lately is more of the same.

    I have only played 3 levels so far, but I do like what I see. But then again, new levels are ALWAYS a good thing.

    btw, when can we some sort of backup utility? Phones die, get broken, lost or stolen. Some sort of way of backing up would be wonderful! Either like in Original or a stand alone app for ALL AB Games!

    I like this game very much, but all this NBA sponsor stuff, not my favorite too. Also, why adding 3 chapters for that :/ It all leads to the same chapter. Also i’d like to see star scores in the pig days icon.

    @roviomillz, I played three levels last night and enjoyed them tremendously. I like the hunt for the championship ring pieces, and love the backgrounds.

    Just played all seven levels, cold, without the assistance of walkthroughs, strategies and comments. Liked the game play, backgrounds, colors and the challenge on obtaining 3 stars. Thanks for another well designed game. Greatly appreciated.

    I understand the sponsorship of various organizations provide revenue to Rovio and that is good for the organization and the end users who enjoy playing the games. Might I suggest that the large NBA white and blue signs be reduced because they interfere with game play and seeing the various items that are needed to destroy the pigs. If they could be moved out of the direct background and placed off to the side that would be great. Another option is to blend them into the background like the The Finals signs being black. Also they could be a tad smaller.

    Thanks for asking for comments.

    This update requires iOS 6 or later – so I guess those of us who still play on 1st gen ipads are out of luck?

    Aw Man!!!! Thanks for letting me know @karen68 – I was hoping it wasn’t going to come to this…I mean it’s one thing that we can’t play “New” games, for example like Stella…But to shut us out of an “Update”! That just stinks ;-(

    By karen68 (@karen68)

    @lesleyg I know, I had a feeling this might happen too. I hope the same thing doesn’t happen to the other AB games, but it probably will :(
    Not that it will help, but I sent off a polite complaint to Rovio this afternoon.

    By Nanami Kamimura (@nanami)

    Actually, they’d already done so in Space. Although the latest for Space is just the addition of the Pluto Missions countdown clock, the minimum req now is iOS 6.0.

    Regardless, I know how you feel…

    @lesleyg, @nanami this is the reply I received from Rovio this morning –

    Hello,

    and thank you for contacting us!

    I’m sorry for the inconvenience. Unfortunately, we are no longer able to provide a satisfactory gaming experience for our fans on the older operating systems. Our games are extremely demanding for devices, the graphics are complicated and use a lot of the device’s graphics memory. Therefore, our latest updates and games are not supported on your device. This means that sadly eventually more and more of our games will not be playable on your device.

    We hope that you will get a chance to play our games on another device.

    My sincerest apologies!

    Sincerely,

    Marika
    Rovio Support Team

    So I guess the other games will soon do the same. :(

    I’m unable to play the update at all it will open up the level but crashes as soon as it does that. It’s pretty much doing that to everything on Seasons for me. I’m using an iPad and my iOS is up to date.

    I’m also having a lot of issues on iOS 6.1.6. Levels may or may not crash and take forever to load or restart. Also, the big ring bonus level freezes every now and then.

    It’s a Golden Egg that can only be earned by getting all 7 ring pieces in the 7 new levels! Unfortunately, it cannot be bought.

    I’ve been reading reviews before updating apps for quite some time now. Everyone with my exact phone – iPhone 5S – has stated for TWO updates that included new episodes, that Seasons FAILS TO OPEN. It’s been three updates officially because one update (between the two with new levels) was intended to fix the crash. I’m hoping those who have said Rovio follows us here at ABN are correct. I’ve seen hundreds of complaints go unacknowledged in the App Store and have never seen a problem this significant (app 100% unplayable on certain platforms) persist for so many releases. I’m the person watching the clock tick down to new releases so this is torture. I can’t trust all claims I see on the App Store but IF the fix is honestly as simple as a change in Notifications settings then someone here on iPhone 5S running IOS 7.0.2 (cannot update to 8 yet) please confirm there is a fix? It’s driving me insane knowing there are dozens of new levels I can’t play. Even if some of those ARE Slam Dunk, lol. Thanks!.
