Golden Egg #20 is the The Big Basket and is unlocked after achieving 3 stars on all levels of Summer Pignic.
Below is a video of the “fruity buffet glitch” that some users have experienced. Some of these users have gotten really high scores because of it (say, 140,000), but don’t expect it to happen often. It took FujiToast at least 50 tries to capture this video and his score was only 80,570, so to get the super high score will require even more luck. That said, so long as anyone can do it I’m okay with these scores.
← Back to the main Angry Birds Seasons “Summer Pignic” Golden Eggs page
On my screen there is a diagonal block structure in the upper right corner near where I see my score. I am doing the HD version on the iPad. Any idea what that is for?
You have to scroll all the way out to see it.
Probably just left there from the blank level code or something
I see the same black tag! How do you achieve the second golden egg to the left of the basket? I have completed all levels?
Heya, check out the main Summer Pignic Golden Egg page to unlock Golden Egg #22 (reminder, the first part of the video walkthrough shows you the location of the GE).
i completed it also with three stars in each level, summer seasons, but did not receive the golden egg to the left of the basket. Is this a glitch? Has anyone else had this happen to them?
You must find the Egg in-game. It is not unlocked automatically.
2 birds, 74120
And you should try to fold the tower while it falls to make it work.
There is a cool spinning flower that come out of that flower arrangement if hit correctly. 69K breaking it up.
That flower might just be a glitch. All I know is had destroyed the pigs and broke the flower arrangement in half and then right in the center of the screen was this spinning flower. I had an extra bird and didn’t know where to shoot it or not but it stayed up for a very long time.
Since I have destroyed nearly everything in that level and can’t make it happen twice so it might of had something to do with the score. I don’t know. But I’m just an intermediate player not bragging but wonder if anyone else has seen this and how to get it again?
I don’t know how I did it either, but got the spinning flower as well. Thought it was a glitch at first (kind of like how on Rio if you hit a bouncy thing just right it just keeps bouncing). Well, it blew EVERYTHING up .. scored 139,690….
Yeah it’s for real but I can’t reproduce it. When you 3-stared level 30 it said “Easter Eggs”. I remember way back in either word or excel there was a game inside when you pressed a certain key combination.
I sure wish I could reproduce this. Maybe there are more “Easter Eggs” like that spinning flower.
Mine didn’t blow everything up but it might of had if I would have hit it 71K.
Where did you hit to make it happen? We’re going to try an recreate this and capture it on video, just need some more insight. Anyone?
Wish I could help ya … I was totally shocked myself BL …
I haven’t been able to do it again .. I’m thinking it might be a one time thing .. kind of like when you find a golden egg.. once you get it, you can’t get it again ..
Maybe once the flower explodes, you can’t get it again ..
I can send a screen capture of the score for verify if needed…
Nope, I finally did it twice. The patterns are different every time. You have to get a piece of that tower wedged in between two places where it cant escape. This is no glitch but its a programming easter egg. I just knew there was something. Finding this before I saw it on the net is worth more to me than any score.
I dont know who found it first but thanks for the videos and especially FT for not thinking I was lying.
Wasnt lying. Typo.
Is this the glitch you guys are talking about?
your capture was close, but I think mine was a flower, and the fruits were leaning up against the cliff, with the flower spinning right next to it. Then BAM! .. the flower blew up and everything went with it ..
I’ve never been close to a high score before (most of mine are around the average range), so you can imagine my surprise when I got the final total …
I finally did it a second time. This time it looked different and I even hit it with my last bomb and it looked different still. You just need to work that tower of vegies back an forth real fast.
Thanks for beliving me. Easter Eggs, right and people said Rovio had lost their touch. Well now I bet there are more of these.
I’d love it if someone who sees this giant flower could snap a picture of it with another device(camera, camera phone, etc…). I’m just dying to see it!!!
On the ABS-summer Pignic level 30 thread that it spins “for a long time”… Maybe someone can grab a pic of it and PM it to BirdLeader.
Mine ended up being a chunk of the tower that started spinning and destroyed everything. Used one bird and scored 101960.
On mine it will end the level before it makes this particular one. When the pigs are all destroyed the level ends. I now think the flower like one lasted for a long time because It didnt hit anything. The other differenc was it folded over.
Sorry to post so much, but I have seen 2 different styles. I wonder if there are more?
I got the spinning flower following Fuji’s video, however the spinning flower didn’t do much, didn’t even increase my score. at the end it turned into the spinning fruits and then disappeared.
It can be done and can give higher scores – keep at it and 90k plus is possible. It is complete luck though, and I’ve had it twice, and only once did it give me a significant score
This time something happened at the very end, and I couldn’t really see it, but it did increase my score! Would still like to see the spinning fruits and total destruction. May not have enough patience, or time.
i’ve tried hundread times, i can’t get over 80k
It’s incredibly rare and doesn’t always do significant damage.
Well yes after the first time. It would be easy to do if destroying the pigs didnt stop the level. I got it to happen 2.5 times with each one having less spin. The first one spun so fast it looked like a floower and lasted a long time.
If you can get the tower to break off and not kill the first pig located immediately to the right of the tower, the piece of tower will eventually wiggle its way down and end up killing the last pig while causing some siginificant damage along the way.
Why does it say easter eggs total destruction?
Is there a leaderboard for the Seasons golden eggs?
There is, but it is not live due to the Seasons Golden Egg numbering discrepancy. It caused far too many issues (people entering scores into the wrong level number). It will be live again once the discrepancy is fixed.
I found a ‘kind of ‘ method to make the spinning bomb with 2 birds.
Aim the first bird low into the tower to fire the tower over to the right, then quickly fire the 2nd under the leaning tower to uproot it. You need the maximum amount/length of tower uprooted to make it quiver and move more vigourously. With a short length of tower it will barely move and has little chance of developing into a spinner.
My method means all the pigs have been killed after the 2nd bird has exploded.
Mine has done it 3 times now but only got 85k points. On the 3rd time, i got a second spinner in the same game but it didnt explode.
Yep thats one way on that one that worked for me. That first one that was in center of screen staying in one place looking like a flower, I now believe was part of that fruit tower spinning very fast. Nothing was around it and 71k was all I could ever get.
I think this is very repateable. The level wont end until the last egg hits the ground. It will eventually up your score. Without using this “easter egg” about 65k is all you can get. I just now got 77k and the patterns can be quite pretty. I really wish I could rrecreate that very fast flower pattern. I dont care about the points. This last time a big piece was slowly twirling for a pretty good while until the rest of the tower fell into it and then destrying everything it touched.
I think this level is very cool. I also think FTs video with the dancing cobra snake like tower along with the spinner was very cool. It happens totally different every time. I even like it better than Rio 8:15.
Easter egg? Raining pig with umbrella.
Did anyone else notice the pig in the bottom right corner of the *pause* screen on this level?
You can click on it and it changes from a pig in the sun to a pig in the rain. But what does it mean/do?
1. go to the Basket golden egg screen (the one in this video with the mountain of fruit) and then
2. Hit PAUSE, then
3. Look in the lower right corner of your screen.
Then you will see a very tiny pig in a summer, sunny setting.
You can click on this tiny pig and it will change; it will start to rain on him and he takes out an umbrella and uses it. Clicking on it again changes it back. You can keep doing this…. And it will remain as you left it until you come back and change it. Like its a setting. But what does it do?
I half expected it to start raining on all the summer levels when I set the pig to rain. Or perhaps it’s a clue to the next “season” , since hurricane season is coming it could be that.
Thoughts? Am I the only one? It only appears on this, the final level of summer pignic… The 3 star basket GE level.
Ps. I am double-posting this (apologies) on the general forum and on the summer basket walkthrough forum (since most people are not reading that after they finish it)
You can read all about Postman Piggy and his duties in this post. He appears in the corner whenever you pause, regardless of the particular app or the level.
I´ve got 71950 points in this level. That´s is a new record
is there a way to download this on my pc
Seasons is not yet available for PC, but soon will be. We will write a post on the homepage when it is, but keep an eye on download.angrybirds.com for the download.
(To calm the responses to this, yes, some users have already downloaded the app during an accidental release, but I have heard it was quite buggy. The official release will arrive soon.)
With regards to the “spinning fruit” glitch I just had one where instead of the fruit spinning in one place and destroying the rest of the clump a small piece of maybe 4 or 5 fruits broke off and literally started “flying” around the screen! Started in the corner just like the little spinning piece in the video and then as it rotated it started moving up and to the left. Over maybe 20-30 seconds it “flew” all around the left side of the screen until it disappeared and the level ended. Hilarious and an obvious glitch. Sorry I am unsure how to capture video plus it happened totally unexpectedly. If anyone else ever sees this please post!
I know this post is old but I should mention that this is my favorite golden egg in Angry Birds Seasons simply because of how bright and colorful it is. I just love it. :) I play it even though i have the golden star for it. Slim, what is your favorite golden egg level in Angry Birds Seasons?
Either 9 or 29. Not really sure why.
OTOH, I’m partial to 21, 23, and 27 because I currently hold the Top Score for those on the leaderboard :)
Finally, got that spinner to work, and WOW, what a difference! I had a fairly respectable 69k on it. Just got a spinner, and I’m up to 92k :) My one initially started off like Fuji’s above, but the bit that broke off just stayed spinning in mid-air until the main tower fell back on it and destroyed virtually the entire level. A second spinner then emerged and went vertically upwards off the screen. Used two birds for the score
OMG, start my first day of college tomorrow. I’m so scared.
The only thing to be scared about is Angry Birds. They pose a real threat to getting good grades and enjoying the college experience. My advice: don’t download YotD or play any other episodes at least until you have gotten good grades in all yours classes, better yet, not until spring break. Angry Birds will wait for you, your class assignments and tests will not. Don’t be fooled by Slim, I think the only reason he can be in graduate school and be an admin is that his area of research is number theory, which probably requires more inspiration than long hours of hard work (of course a well rested brain probably helps). Forgot to mention DO NOT stay up all night before a test. Your brain will be mush. I failed a test my first year that I should have gotten an A on, because I stayed up all the previous night.
Hey–good luck, learn lots of interesting stuff, and enjoy!
It requires an awful lot of both time and inspiration. I read close to 1000 pages per week. I will be taking 2 lecture courses (Complex Analysis and Algebraic Geometry II), 1 directed study (L-functions), teaching 1 course (Calculus II), auditing 2 courses (Lie Groups and Advanced Number Theory II: Selmer Groups), and reading something for fun (p-adic Analysis).
The real trick is time management. Don’t wait until the last night to do an assignment. Spread it out, chipping away a little bit each day. It makes eating an elephant much easier to do ;)
Wow! So when do you have time to be an admin, who always seems to be online?
According to BirdLeader, I have “superpowers“.
Ok, so what is your thesis topic, and when do you expect to get your PhD?
I don’t have a topic yet. I may go to purely algebraic number theory, but right now I am a bit partial to p-adic analysis. I have a while to go yet. I’m only in my 2nd year.
Thanks mvnla2 and Slim for giving me the courage to overcome the fears of college. :)
1. Is the “fruity buffet glitch” fixed?
2. What makes it start? I can’t get it to start on my phone.
1: It is still possible, as far as I know.
2: It’s hard to tell. A primary contributor seems to be time (after the first a/o second shot), so it’s best to NOT clear all pigs with one shot. If I had to venture one guess, I would say something (more specifically maybe the egg(s) of the fruity tower?) get caught in the “rotation” area where the flower petals used to be. Like I said, this is only my guess, and I haven’t really looked at this level for about 9 months.
Haven’t managed the spinning chunk or flower but I’ve reached 71,430 with one bird.
Out of curiosity, has anyone gotten the glitch to work in recent versions of the game? Probably few people have even tried I suppose. I have never been able to get it to work on any of the versions that I’ve played. These are the most annoying levels, where you need a 1 in a million shot without actually having much of a clue what the shot is that you’re trying for :-)
I absolutely loved this level. It’s hilarious and I’m so glad that Fuji was able to capture the glitch. (Thanks @fujitoast – I really appreciate all your videos but in particular, you going the extra distance on this one was worth it. It has to be seen to be believed.)
I managed to get it to do the fast spinny thing (with a bunch of fruit) once but it did it over the other side of the right hill so no extra points were achieved on that one. A couple of times a fruit cluster sort of started to spin but not for long. So my score wasn’t achieved through the glitch.
I’m still playing v2.4.1 (which doesn’t have Back to School level) and the glitch was still doing its thing as at my ‘post’ date.
Now that I have found the seasons golden eggs leaderboards I have managed above average in all games except big basket.
Whinge gods please help me get above average in this last golden egg level.
Thanks whinge gods three flings after above post increased my score to 96,400 puts me above average on all seasons golden eggs yippee.
This level is an absolute nightmare to get above average on! Seems those lucky enough to take advantage of the glitch have made it really hard for the rest of us.
Seems a one-birder is possible, but every time I come close (and get past the 70k mark) the moustachioed pig (or once the lady pig) gets very badly bruised but not killed.
@andy2510 Yes this level is a pain. The highest score I was able to get without the glitch was just over 74k, so keep at it! Aim for the first strawberry from the ground, right beneath the white egg and a 70k+ 1-birder should happen after enough tries.
@tenjoker thanks for the tip – got over 70k on the first try! :-)
@andy2510 Haha congrats!
Great… I finally got a spinney thingy, and it was trapped by the rest of the fruits!
It’s getting more common than last time now… I got it in 3 over 10 times…
I even took a picture of it. http://angrybir.de/17PlLUQ
Found an old version that still had the glitch(2.0.0 Mooncake Festival update) Had a few juddery type explosions one of which led to a decent score(77k) but then the ‘spinney thing’ appeared. Like a fruit based rotary buzz saw in the right corner. Stationary but revolving very fast(if that makes sense). I was lucky in two respects, Hector remained alive for the duration, also the larger section of fruit made contact with the rotor causing fruit mayhem. Nothing like a game of Fruit Ninja.
Used two birds to dislodge the fruit from it’s base. But all very random.
