Golden Egg #4, or better known as the “Big Pumpkin” is unlocked after you obtain 3 star all levels of Angry Birds Seasons Trick or Treat. Once you’ve accomplished this goal, tap the pumpkin in the middle of the Golden Egg screen to open up the level below. To obtain the star, fire a Blue bird straight ahead, splitting relatively early so that each of the three smaller Blue birds pass through the three ice shelves above the TNT. With a little luck, something will fall under the table and cause the TNT to detonate, clearing the level.

I got all 3 stars on level 1 of halloween but didn’t get a main star for it. Do you know why? Do I have to get all 3 stars on all 3 levels?
Yep, I believe you have to get three stars on all levels.
yup you were right, thanks!
so what is the pumpkin with 3 stars cut out on page 4 of halloween??
This video should pretty much answer your question!
Thanks for the tip. I’ve posted that video in our Halloween Golden Egg walkthrough as well.
finish all levels with three stars, unlocks like a golden egg level. bit of a challenge too.
You unlock it with 3 stars on all levels. I have not found any other gold eggs yet outside of the one listed. Came here hoping for any ones I might have missed.
Finnish all levels with 3 stars
It’s very interesting i can finnish all levels
With 1,2or 3 stars and you what’s your favourite level
Please leave a comment hope you like it!!!
For some reason, the star for the 3 star pumpkin (the big one behind it) wont appear for me, even though I’ve starred the level several times. Ideas?
What do you mean it won’t appear?
The giant star behind the 3 star pumpkin in the video. I have the 3 star pumpkin lit up, but that’s all.
Have you passed the level to receive the star (tap the pumpkin)? Once you do it will light up.
I just lost my highscore on the Big Pumpkin, but the pumkin is still lit up. Anyone else had this? I know I had the highscore earlier because I just started to input my scores for Seasons Golden Eggs today and a couple of hours ago it was there. After playing a couple of levels it’s not, though. Odd.
i have finished the Halloween game with 3 stars (and feather) on all levels but the big pumpkin has not lit up. What am I doing wrong?
The pumpkin will not light up until you defeat the level itself. Can you click on it and enter the level? (Also, it doesn’t hurt to verify that the Episode screen says 135/135 stars)
That was it! When I checked it said 134 of 135…I had overlooked getting the third star way back on 1-6. As soon as I did that, I got the glowing pumpkin. Thanks!
After the update, I tapped the GE then it comes up the Big Pumpkin level.
Yeah we just discovered this. We need to contact Rovio about it.
Just noticed this glitch today. I actually don’t and never have had the big pumpkin level unlocked.
Same problem in Seasons. Could you please send me the correction for having 135/135 stars on Trick or Treat when large pumpkin does not illuminate? Thank you.
What device are you using??
I am using a Samsung Galaxy with Android OS. Thank you.
Sorry I don’t have any solution for Android. Best option is to restart your device or contact Rovio.
So, does everybody with the same problem have a corropted settings file ?
I was told my settings file was messed up and had to hack into my iPhone files to “replace” it with the clean file I was emailed.
Now we are being told you need to “pass” the level. What does that mean ?
The big pumpkin isn’t playable. 135/135 should unlock it and make it playable, but it’s not.
And lots of people are having this problem. Can you say UPDATE ?
what version are you playing (ie have you updated to wreck the halls version)
And ‘pass’ means complete the level, usually to three star standard
Hope this helps :)
iPhone 4 iOS 5
I have 135/135 for stars and all the feathers and golden egg.
Still the big pumpkin isn’t playable. I was told my Settings File was corrupted and that I should replace it with the file that was emailed to me. This requires hacking into my iPhone and copying the files to my desktop and overwriting them with the emailed file.
And yes I have updated to Wreck the Halls and currently have 3 stars on all available levels.
“Hacking”? It doesn’t require any jailbreak or anything of the sort. This is a method that Rovio has cited before.
If you don’t like the method, then don’t do it. But don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.
So, does everyone with this problem have a corrupted settings file ?
Or, is there a glitch in the game ?
Perhaps a small issue in the way that the game updates, but it’s not really widespread. Could also be that users are not closing out the app before performing an update — which increases the possibility of corruption.
The big pumkin problem, I have the complete opeset. When the golden egg levels floped back to normal I saw the big pumkin unlocked even though I didn’t have 135/135. I had to recollect the golden egg though. Am I the only one this is happened to?
P.S. I got the golden egg back by recollecting it. I have it now.
I seem to have same problem on pumpkin. All 135 stars, and golden egg, yet pumpkin not accessible. any suggestions?
Thanks in advance
What device are you playing on? Have you double-checked the Episode Selection screen that it says 135/135?
Yeah says 135/135. Am on iPhone 4 iOS 5.0.1 am convinced I am convinced i accessed level before, but now it seems I cannot get in
Yeah, it’s an issue with the settings file. I’ll shoot you an email.
Does anyone notice that the big pumpkin level always ends too early? This always prevents from getting a higher score.
Still does. I’m trying to get all my scores above the average and after countless attempts to get the TNT to explode (and would have raised my score above the average), the game ended with pieces still falling and my score only 800 points from my goal. I guess I’ll just have to settle for the close score that I have.
I too have this problem, and its just on this level for me. Is there a solution for this? :-)
I too experienced the same situation of the level ending early.
What I did differently from the video is to split the Blue Bird so it only hits the middle and far right shelves that are suspended in the air. This way if the tnt blows debris flies up and hits the left most shelf and the big pumpkin with the pig are the last ones to hit the ground. The “L” factor does come into play. Works about 70% of the time and obtained my present score of 176k+.
I have also hit all three shelves like in the video but the tnt does not explode 30% of the time.
One tip to pass on, “wait till the very end of the level” because I have had some delayed reactions with the tnt blowing up.
Just did the same strat again with a delayed reaction of the far right shelf for a better score.
I did it similar to wrw01 but I focused on just the tip top ledge so the pumpkins would roll off and onto the far left ledge leaving the two floaters intact, if you can get the pumpkins rolling and blow the TNT it will collapse the two floaters when everything blows giving way more time before the early time out therefore giving you a better chance at a decent score. I was able to up my score a few K this way but as always the AB ‘L’ factor has to fall in your favour!
odd thing, my wife has 79/135 stars yet has access to the big pumpkin? does anyone know why it is doing this?
I think I can help. There was a bug that meant that the two levels had been flipped, so the big pumpkin opened the level 3-2 egg, and vice-verca. When this was fixed, even if you didn’t have 135 stars, you could still access the big pumpkin, but the other egg would have been gone. That egg could then be recollected by going to 3-2, giving you both golden eggs without three starring everything. Hope this helps :)
So theres somebody else who got the big pumpkin early. Why couldn’t I be the only one.
Hey. Having same problems with big bumking but i´m using nokia. Solusions fromthat (game not phone)?
You have to contact Rovio.
Has anyone contacted Rovio about this problem ?
If so, what have they said ?
I have encouraged people to contact Rovio, but whether or not they do is not under my control.
I have the same problem, with having 135/135 and no big pumpkin. I did as you suggested, and contacted Rovio, and this is what they said..
and thanks for contacting us!
Please visit Angry Birds Nest (https://www.angrybirdsnest.com) for walk-throughs, hints and instructions for the game.
So… now what?
Are you using Nokia too?
Reply back saying you have an issue with a corrupted settings.lua file. The “fancy talk” will catch their eye.
Though I must say, I’m flattered that Rovio is referencing us in their email support as well :)
Yeah, they always add a link back here at the end of their email.
I have three stars in all levels, and the golden egg. I DO NOT HAVE access to the big pumpkin?! Why?
What device are you using? Can you verify that the episode selection screen says 145/145 stars?
THIS is where I read “145/145” and assumed you knew something about getting another ten points in Trick or Treat. I have done everything suggested on this forum and everything suggested by Rovio, and still cannot access the big pumpkin. Oh well.
Sorry that’s a typo. Should be 135.
What device are you using?
i-pod touch, 5.0.1; Seasons 2.2.0.
Just realized no big pumpkin for me either.
iphone 4 v 2.2.0
You have 135/135 stars? What’s your status with other episodes?
Everything else seems fine.
Emailed you. Let me know.
Followed your instructions Slim. Appreciated. I remember playing the big pumpkin level at an earlier date, so I was able to access it before. Thanks again.
Glad to hear it, Gambit. Happy gaming!
I’m using iPhone 4S, running ios5. ABS version4.2.1. I think I had the big pumpkin on my old iPhone but not sure. I have three stars in everything and have found all golden eggs. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
I don’t understand the issue, sorry. Can you elaborate?
I play on the Nook version 2.1. Cannot get big pumpkin to light. Any help.
The stars on the Big Pumpkin won’t light until you pass the level. You cannot access the level until you have all 135 stars from Trick or Treat.
I have all 135 stars but still cannot seem to get access to the pumpkin
You will have to contact Rovio directly.
Here is the latest word I have from Rovio, FWIW….
“Thanks for your message, and our apologies for the delayed reply.
We’ve received reports on this issue and are working on a fix. Hopefully we’ll get it solved very soon. Please bear with us in the meantime!
We are sorry for the inconvenience.
