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!

    This update really excites me. I am hooked on AB Transformers and it is one of the games played each day. The “Coming Soon” areas ought to be “unclouded” and maybe the remaining 5 characters that are blacked out will be made available.

    Also one of the Achievements does not work, specifically Roll Out with 5,000 miles (3 stars). Rovio has acknowledged a problem with this one.

    I hope they start to release the remaining telepods in the US soon. On Ebay the Bumblebee Blast has been released in Taiwan and Australia but the prices are 2-4 times the projected prince in the US of $19.99. It seems the retail box store have lost interest in selling the telepods. Toys R Us appears to carry the Transformers telepods but have not started to sell the remaining Transformers.

    Hmm, the area looks a lot like a fortress. Maybe this is the transformirized version of King Pig’s Castle?

    Rank: Boss Hog with 12515 points
    By Rowdypup (@rowdypup)

    @xano2323 on the map, the area that you play on isn’t near King Pig’s castle, so that rules out that one

    but one thing that helps me guess what areas will come in future updates (such as King Pig’s castle, South Beach, or the giant snow mountain) is that the Angry Birds Transformers map is actually just a Angry Birds Epic map rotated (and lacking detail- no offense Rovio)

    Hope this helps!

    As always, thanks so much @josm! A few questions for you:

    • Can you explain in some detail what some of the new icons in this screenshot do? I’ve highlighted them.
    • What are the new characters and how many pigs do they cost to unlock?
    • Have the prices to upgrade characters changed much?
    • Google Play shows, “Eggbots now creating Golden Egg Domes. Engage in these missions for massive rewards!”. Any idea what this is about?
    • It looks like you can now decorate your characters. Any other major changes besides what you’ve mentioned?

    I would normally jump on a first look video, but it’s not out yet for iOS. If you can’t get this info, no worries. Thanks again!

    By Josm (@josm)

    @birdleader yes i know all of this ;)

    Most of the things you want to know came in the update a few weeks ago but ok ;)

    The buttons on the left are a leaderboard button (to see the score in pigs compared with fb friends) and a screenshots button ( where 3 screenshots are stored from your last game, you can share them on fb like in abgo). The button at the right bottom is to skywarp a level, you just can skip it for gems, and you get some gold for it.

    Prices of upgrades didnt changed, at least not many that i noticed it.

    There are 5 new characters that were not available before:

    Thundercracker
    Jazz
    Brawl
    grey Slam grimlock
    And dark megatron

    the prices in pigs for the first characters are 900 and 1000, i dont remeber which of 4 was which price but 900 or 10000.
    dark megatron is 3000 pigs, since that one unlocks at rank150 and the other 4 even lower than the maximum was in previous updates. Maybe rank 90 or 100 or so.

    Golden egg domes are leves that will give you a lot more levels than normal, like 10.000, without doubling. One level appears randomly once in 3 or more days or so. They cost 10 gems to unlock.

    The decorations are just decoration i guess, i dont think they give special powers or so. Dont know for sure as some cost a lot of gems.

    Also the total new level with new music from the picture in your post came with this update.

    For more details i may missed, there is a topic in the transformers forum about this update :) hope this helps

    found it out @birdleader when you intercept a level with a few gems, you get this eggbot walking in front of you. In this level i didnt get a buddy, but i intercepted another level and i got a buddy there + an eggbot.

    @rowdypup no, all those 5 are new. some of them may be realeased in the soft launch, but they ere not included in the official release

    By Roperz

    @birdleader Did you know you can
    get Brawl, Thundercracker, and Dark Megatron as a buddy in version 1.1.18? The only one you can’t get as a buddy is Gray Slim Grimlock because he didn’t exsist before this new update. But don’t you think that it’s sorta weird that you can get non-released characters as a buddy? Please answer me Bird Leader.

    By Roperz

    The bright looking version of Megatron you might see as a buddy is Dark Megatron. If you ask me, Ultimate Megatron should be who Dark Megatron is, and Dark Megatron should just be the Ultimate Megatron, because, get it? Ultimate Megatron is DARK!

    ArcageGo is a Youtuber with about 600K subscribers. He has a gameplay walkthrough videos about the 5 new characters, which he already played before. I think that he played these characters before this Deceptihog Revenge. At the last version, Thundercracker and Jazz has been unlocked ago. But it’s pretty good. The map really rocks.

    So, so far everything AB Transformers related has been released on Android first, rather than iOS… is this some kind of pun? Because the Autobirds and Deceptihogs could be considered androids? :)

    Seriously, though, this update looks…complex. But then, I thought the same thing about both Epic and Transformers before both of them were released. I guess I’ll have to wait and see it when it’s released for iOS.

    By GrimmJow (@grimmjow)

    @chriss, @birdleader :

    This update is really extraordinary. It is like night and day compared in before.

    I have however some questions, in particular concerning the achievements GC:

    – Squad of fight : Complete 2 squads.
    Before the update, I already possessed 20 characters and thus I had already more than 2 completed squads. It not me there stayed that 2 to make with 5 new characters, but in even by freeing them, the achievement did not free.

    – Don’t thank from Deceptihogs : Don’t thank twice from Deceptihog events.
    The success IG freed correctly, not the GC.

    – Time Rift : Slow and Fast : 200 damages in slow/fast action.
    How to realize this actions ? I saw for the moment no passage where I am slow or fast.

    And otherwise concerning the successes IG, always stays a problem for the following ones:

    – Roll Out : Any star, I stay in 0.
    – Slow motion = Cool : Finish but empty progress bar
    – Defending like Defensor : Finish but empty progress bar
    – Not junk yet : Finish but empty progress bar
    – Should’ve kept the instructions : Finish but empty progress bar

    By GrimmJow (@grimmjow)

    @chriss, @birdleader :

    After some test, I can assert that it is about the same problem as AB SW II.
    The problem being that if a new set up achievement asks for an action( that we have already realized before the update (AB SW II: 10.000 launched attacks / ABT: 2 constitued squads), the achievement jams.

    How may I assert it ?
    ABT has not a cloud, I thus began again a quite new party on my IPad, but with the same GC as on my IPhone.
    And after 1 constituted squad, the success freed.
    On the other hand the success “Don’t thank from Deceptihogs”, nothing to make, I do not obtain it. It is the only one who misses me to this day.

    When in the successes IG, with the new party, any problem, no blocking and bars work.
    On my real party, always had bugs.

    And any answer from Rovio yet.

    Much bigger coin counts in all areas, including Jenga. The upgraded Energon cubes are much richer too. Lots to take in and figure out how to maximize gameplay value. No more clicking on the video doubler buttons only to be rejected, one of many smaller improvements.

    By Chris (@chriss)

    I have a question to the iOS players: did you find any negative things in this update? (e.g. you have to pay more coins for an upgrade than before etc.) Or did you find any bugs? I will only update if some people can confirm that there are no bugs and no negative things.

    While you get tons more coins in all areas of the game, it looks like there’s a lot fewer crystals left on the beach. Also, I haven’t had any more doubler or buddy powerup video options since I played yesterday morning.

    It really ticks me off that I have to wait sooo long before I finally get the final five characters for Angry Birds Transformers , that Arcee was falsely advertised and calling the bad piggies Deceptihogs instead of something more easy on the tong like Deceptipigs. Why Deceptipigs? Because Deceptihogs sounds more like Decep Dogs, that’s why.
