An iOS exclusive Angry Birds Stella update has landed (v1.1.3) to mark the Chinese new year. The AppStore states:
It’s the Chinese New Year! We’re ringing in the year of the goat with new themed levels in the Island Map. Play the new Chinese New Year levels until the end of February!
With that said, upon playing I am not seeing much new content … yet. My hunch is that the new content is set to unlock on Thursday, February 19th, 2015, as that’s the start of the Chinese New Year. I know it’s not a lot to go on, but if you happen to see new content pop up please let us know by commenting below (I’m sure @Dr-Omega) will be keeping his super-sleuthing eyes peeled).
We suspect this special event will include:
- New Challenges: such as “Rescue the Fortune Box” – we might see more.
- New Levels: Be sure to check the Golden Island Map daily.
- New Items: Let us know if you collect any of them.
- The Chinese New Year starts on Thursday February 19th
Not a lot to see here currently.
- Compete with players from around the world on our Stella leaderboard (be sure to note your scores and take screenshots for easy retrieval)
- Angry Birds Stella achievements as listed in Game Center
- Stuck on a level? Our walkthroughs are here to help.
- Ask questions, leave feedback, or offer suggestions in the Stella Forum.
- Learn how to backup and restore your Angry Birds Stella progress. ALWAYS make local backups!
I would do the new update, but I choose not to because everytime I exit the app (in a few hours timeframe), it always gets deleted (5 or 6 times already), so then I have to get my stuff back all over again (from the beginning)- and believe me- it’s very frustrating
Off Topic: Angry Birds Go! New update has been released..
Its a new kart, Goat Kart..
And a bit taste,New app icon!
Hoping you’re right about the 19th! Really boring flinging birds over & over just for points. Plus, they’re not even changing up the levels! I’m on Level 37 & just grabbing points… Yawn…
When I play the “new levels”, it gives me a “reward”. The reward is items flying around the screen. Is that all? What is this “reward” for???
In fact these items that appear are not collectable and the reward is only a few coins… I hope this helps you!
I did not find any new items. Where are they?
By the way, all the bugs of the previous version are still there. Whenever I contact Rovio about the bugs, they say “we are sorry, but there is nothing we can do about”. At least they are honest, cos some weeks later there is always a new update with the same bugs.
I can say nothing fancy. The Year of Goat level similar to Stealed Stella Diary before which is some bigger coins rewards and link to AB Stella Twitter
As of about noon PST, just a daily “Rescue the Fortune Box” level. No different from the Holiday or New Year daily bonus levels (the extra 25 coins is still there). No changes to any bugs that may have previously existed. For example, one of my levels freezes as soon as it opens, and because I got a freeze on a wheel screen and a freeze on a hammer once, both reverted to the original settings. So essentially, I have no rewards. Rovio gives the “sorry, here’s some coins” deal. If they can’t fix these problems, Stella is likely to go down as a failure. Why would anyone play a game that takes rewards with no recourse and freezes half the time?
In my version there are no 25 extra coins.
Is this for ios only? Can’t find the update on my android..
@sal9 you can change the text now :/ this update is iOS exclusive so not coming for android as they said no twitter
oh wow! Thanks @josm
Aww I was looking forward to Angry Birds Stella
Chinese New Year Update I quited Playing Angry Birds games on my iPAD
With this updat it makes one wonder if Rovio or Hasbro will release the last five telepods for Stella. The update looks great.
is it out for android yet????
It’s an iOS exclusive update :'(
i dont find Stella really popular, even though the update looks nice.
I’ve finished all levels and I am waiting for chapter 3…. Any news on when another update is coming?
