Angry Birds Transformers Deceptihogs Revenge Update Out for iOS & Android

Begin transmission! Let’s hold hands in celebration, as the Angry Birds Transformers Deceptihogs Revenge update is now available for iOS (v1.3.18)! Android users were lucky and got early access to this update almost a month ago (via Google Play).

To coincide with the update Rovio has also released a brand new retro-style animation that explains the next chapter of the story. Per YouTube:

We’re dusting off the old VHS collection to show you the next chapter in the Angry Birds Transformers saga! The Autobirds and Deceptihogs have teamed up against the EggBots, and they have finally gotten their hands on the powerful EggSpark. What will happen next? Will the greedy Deceptihogs share their prize with the Autobirds? Not likely…

See how the saga plays out in the latest update to Angry Birds Transformers: Deceptihogs Revenge!

Let’s jump into what this update includes:

  • EGGBOT ACTIVITY DETECTED in Cobalt Valley. Detecting a spacetime distortion effect. Proceed with caution!
  • SKYWARP RECRUITED for Piggy Island destruction missions.
  • EGGBOT MALFUNCTION – Eggbots now creating Golden Egg Domes. Engage in these missions for massive rewards!

@josm breaks down things a bit more in his comment here and there is lots of talk in the Transformers forum.

Below is some extremely helpful information that was provided by @mighty-red-1 in his topic here (great discussion going on there).

  • 5 new characters: Thundercracker, Jazz, Brawl, Grey Slam Grimlock and Dark Megatron
  • New characters automatically mean new areas, one of which is Pig City that contains 4 level areas, so that’s a total of 8 more level areas which means even more coins to collect
  • A leaderboard that shows the total pigs you and your friends have popped
  • New achievements, which means more ways to earn gems
  • The recently mentioned Pig City is a whole new environment that has its own soundtrack and some new mechanics
  • Character customization – you can buy stuff for your character that will make him look cool or, presumably, make his battles easier (I don’t know much about this feature because the items cost gems). Some items are actually from the Transformers series and movie, e.g. the Autobot Matrix of Leadership for Optimus Prime, Lazerbeak for Soundwave or a crown for Energon Starscream. Each character gets a Christmas hat for free
  • The characters now form squads that offer bonus coins when the squads are complete. There is a total of 8 squads to complete, the squads are made of from 2 to 4 characters. I personally have already unlocked the new characters so now I have all 25 characters and my coin bonus is 40%, so I guess it’s 5% from each squad
  • When looking at squads, you can click on a character to see his description
  • Better performance
  • The characters’ stats have been adjusted
  • There is a Quests feature in Teletraan 1, but I have no idea what it’s supposed to do because it currently says “No quests” (probably because I downloaded the update quite early)
  • Your ‘thank you’ or ‘thanks for nothing’ moments from the last battle are now photographed and you can choose to share those photos via Facebook
  • Energon characters are able to regenerate their health in a battle by collecting energon cubes
  • A new soundtrack for the previously introduced forest environment
  • According to @gulgor0, “fireballs shot from Mortar Towers now have an even lower splash radius, now even standing one meter from them doesn’t hurt you;”
  • Some characters have new firepower, e.g. Bumblebee now shoots his rockets in bursts.

Note: if you experience any gameplay crashes that are outside the norm head on over the forum. You may not always find a solution, but it’s helpful to keep track of those having problems.

Due to the holidays Apple currently isn’t releasing updates, so I imagine this won’t land on iOS until at least the week after Christmas. Doh!


(A BIG thanks to @josm for providing these)

well after updating I am not getting the new characters. I do see skyward and the new areas, just no new characters to unlock.

Very weird. Anyone got this?

this is because 5 characters : thundercracker , grey slam grimlock (previously only grimlock) , jazz , brawl and dark megatron were available in the soft launch but then they were deleted of the game and in this update they comeback as new characters so if you unlocked all this characthers in the soft launch you can´t unlock them now because you got them

Does anybody know when the new update will be out on the kindle fire?

I can’t get the update. I’m on a Galaxy S4 running KitKat. It doesn’t show up in the Play store as an available update. I have restarted the device to no avail. Oddly, I had paused the game earlier today and thought I saw an ad to upgrade, but I was not on WiFi at the time so I left the game paused until I got home. Attempted to unpause the game and it crashed. Haven’t seen the upgrade ad since. What am I doing wrong?

@admins, @chriss :

Answer from Rovio :


We fixed some of the problematic achievements in the latest update update, please make sure that your game is up to date. I have now forwarded the ones you have reported from Game Center to our developers and they will get them fixed in no time at all.

If you have further concerns, please get back to us!

Kind regards,”

hey can you add a cloud sync for this game too i got a new phone and i don’t want to start all over again please would appreciate it if you do :)

By furyslinger2000 (@furyslinger200)

Careful to not restore your device after updating. If yu restore your device completely and then restore your backup, the game will crash on you. I’ve contacted Rovio about this and they said that this is because the App currently doesn’t support cloud gaming. However, they did say they will come up with somethig to fix this. Until then, don’t restore your device.

Thank you

Why does it take so long to have updates available for kindle? I end up losing interest in the games before I can update them (angry birds stella & transformers).

Donna, the development and approval process varies between the appstore, googleplay and amazon. We are not involved in the release of updates or games.

By J

when will the cloud disappear around the dome? I have 200 upgrades now and haven’t had any new levels in a long time! Getting boring now!

By Nao

Thats exactly what i was saying. Have you gotten any yet? I think i am in between 150 and 180 and i still have the cloud around the mountain

By Jazzer

I’m at 205 with no new parts of the island????

By Meggan

I’m feeling frustrated with the inability to unlock new areas, and therefore, new characters! It used to be that I knew what level I needed to achieve to unlock areas, or uncover clouded over areas! I, too, am feeling frustrated and have found that I know longer want to play a game that used to be my fave! Please help me figure out when & how I can access new characters! My last character was Dark Megatron… I’m at level 170 with my highest upgrade at level 9…

By Stef

I’m on level 238 and the back half of the island is still under clouds…. Not happy ?

By Nao

I just checked im at 188. My highest upgrade is level 8. So let me know if and when u got any new levels pls and thanx

By amit

I am at 154 rank and completed all levels now what to do

By Maddrunn

I play on an iPad & downloaded the updated version two weeks ago. Now I cannot update my characters. I get a window that asks if I want to upgrades to the bot to carry more materials. Any fixes?

Thanks for your time.

It’s not a bug, it’s a new game feature.

Before this update you only needed coins (or gems if you didn’t have enough coins or wanted to do an “instant” upgrade).

But now there also special materials that your TFs need in addition to coins in order to upgrade (or if you don’t have enough of the special materials, then you can always spend gems).

There are seven different special materials, and you will need different types and quantities depending on what level your TF is and the faction they belong to. Just check the upgrade screen and it will show what they need below the coin cost.

You can earn the special materials by running the new missions, which is something else that was introduced in the update.

Suggest you go to the ABT Forum if you want to learn more, there’s at least one mega-thread out there which covers all this.

By Maddrunn

Thank you!

By Jaime

When will new parts of the island open up? I am on level 205 and have had no new parts open since 190 I think?

By Door

Me too! I can see that I’ve got 3 more bots to gather, but nothing is happening… Beginning to be a bit boring as is mentioned above! When will I be able to unlock more of the island?? Rovio help please!

By Adam

Is their a way to get the last 3 bonus transformers if u missed out on shockwave and his 2 predasessers

By Angie

And that’s all you have to to do. Get pleasure from Brawl Stars earlier than the remainder
of the planet and we sit up for you kicking our butts in short order or binder together with us
to carry out the heavy lifting in a couple of matches.
