Angry Birds Transformers Update Out for iOS – Check Out Stella as Arcee

Begin transmission! A discrete Angry Birds Transformers update has landed for iOS (v1.4.25) that claims it contains only “minor bug fixes”; however, there is a bit more here than meets the eye. Note, this update for iOS brings it inline with Android (Google Play), which received this update back on April 22nd.

Important! It’s advisable to back up your progress before updating.

Below are the notable changes/additions that we’ve spotted:

  • iOS users can save game progress via Game Center and Facebook! Note, some Android users have reported that they lost progress when updating to v1.4.25, so it’s recommend that you back up your progress before proceeding to update. Thanks for @mighty-red-1 for letting us know.
  • Stella as Arcee is now a potential buddy (see our video above)
  • The map graphics have been updated and two new objects show as “Coming Soon!”
  • Two New Characters also show as “Coming Soon!” These are most likely Stella.
  • You have to now purchase to unlock Skywarp, though the functionality remains the same. Yes, this is sort of strange.

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.

    But Matilda was never in the AB Transformers comics…I don’t think Rovio is planning on using her for this game.

    Also the characters range changed. Now it’s from less costly to most costly.

    Also:
    They fixed the bug where ur level goes back to level 1 when the game closes.

    I don’t see anymore the list of my friends with their rank and number of pigs..

    @joeyba No, the leaderboards still work, it’s just that you need to wait for a while. In my experience, the first time I open the leaderboard I wait for at least 15 seconds, friends don’t appear, but when I close and re-open the leaderboard, friends appear a few seconds later.

    @mighty-red-1 I’ve been playing for 3 hours, closing and opening and they’re still not there. Maybe they didn’t update yet ?

    @joeyba Maybe your internet is a little slow? Have you tried restarting the game?

    @joeyba Try rebooting the device itself. If that doesn’t help, then I don’t know what’s up.

    @mighty-red-1 I think I know why I don’t see them
    They are in Europe and they didn’t get the update yet.. Maybe this is why ? They have no update available yet . Maybe tomorrow ..

    What do you mean by “the characters range changed from less costly to most costly”? I don’t want to be rude, I’m just confused.

    Rank: Avian Overlord with 15930 points
    By Mighty Red (@mighty-red-1)

    @furyslinger200 It means that the order of characters has been changed in Astrotrain, from cheap to expensive to upgrade. Have you noticed that the characters from the Deceptihogs’ Revenge update are now in the 1st page (except Dark Megatron)?

    Rank: Well Traveled with 1900 points
    By furyslinger2000 (@furyslinger200)

    Now I get it! Thanks!

    By the way, it’s more that the characters are organized from least to most expensive prices for upgrades. They are organized in the order that can be unlocked each time you reach a certain rank.

    By the way, my advice for this update.: Do NOT try restoring your device. Your save files will still corrupt if you try to restore your device, unless you saved your progress by Facebook, Google Play, or Game Center.

    If I were you, I tell Rovio to add support for the app so the app’s progress won’t corrupt if you restpre your device.

    Also, I strongly reccomend that you folks tell Rovio to add “Rovio Account Support” for Angry Birds Transformers as another way to save your progress.

    Have an awesome day and keep things furious!! :D

    @birdleader If only that were a possibility. I’d gift you at least 7 million of my coins.

    @sal9 I wish I could gift you some of my coins too. The least I can do is borrow your characters, which was not possible before this update due to varying versions on iOS and Android. I’ve borrowed your characters at least 2 times today, hopefully you were rewarded with gems.

    There are actually 5 new things on the map.

    3 coming soon…

    One new area is located in the middle of the desert, another new area is located on an tiny part of the island in east-most part of map near the beach, and the last area is located in the Pig City Area.

    And 2 new areas now useable…

    Autobot Tower: Checks for friends activities. Located near the beach in bottom-most area of map.

    Skywarp Runway: Pay 5000 coins to reconstruct runway, then you can use Skywarp Airstrikes. After 3rd airstrike is used, Skywarp must refuel. Located in Forest / Woods area.

    Also, have you noticed a few things changed? The Pig City Music and Conalt Valley Music have slightly changed to extend the beggining of the music of each location. Also, Ultimate Megatron’s icon has changed.

    By the way, if anyone manages to completely restore their device, then restore their device from a backup, and is able to continue playing the app without corrupting his/her progress, please take the time to tell me. :)

    Have an awesome day and keep things furious!! :D

    @furyslinger200 Since you’re talking about minor changes too, here are some that you missed:

    * The Sharktihogs are now able to be stunned.
    * Shotgun PigBots shoot more realistically.
    * Air PigBots have been buffed – all air PigBots now damage you. Before the update, the machine gun air PigBots and the ones that shoot Galvatron-like lasers didn’t do any damage.
    * Bumblebee and Jazz now fire their rockets way more rapidly.
    * The Energon Airstrike and Shield can now be activated again only after the previous ones have finished/worn off.

    @mighty-red-1 There is now a minor difference between Chuck and Bubbles. Bubbles can fire more rockets than Chuck before reloading…just felt like it needed to be added to your list!

    They seem to have removed some coins collection spots. There used to be 29, now there are 25. Jenga mode started off repeating the same characters over and over, with a very low coin count (275-350), but went back to normal after killing the app and reopening it. Stingy on crystals so for too.

    Hey, fellow Angry Birds Fanatics! Guess what?! An extended edition of the Angry Birds Transformers Soundtrack is on iTunes. This extended edition feature all 6 of the original soundtracks music track PLUS 2 new music tracks available only in the extended edition.

    Here’s a tip. If you have already purchased the original soundtrack and all of its songs, just buy the 2 new songs from the extended edition individually. The 2 music tracks are…

    “Eggbot Actovity Dectected”: This song is the theme of the levels in Cobalt Valley, and it also happens to be my favorite music track! HOORAY! :D

    “Through Pig City”: Obivously, this music is the theme for the Pig City Levels, as this track’s title implies. ;)

    I hope you find this news great and I hope you enjoy the new music tracks available in the extended edition of the Angry Birds Transformers Soundtrack. :)

    Have an awesome day and keep things furious!! :D

    P.S. Forgive me if I misspelled some words, and to make things clear, “music tracks” is another name that I call the “songs” from the Angry Birds Transformers Soundtracks, both the Original and Extended Edition.

    Keep things furious!! :D

    Hey, has recently been updated to a newer version of this game version 1.4.25. But there is no effect on my device at all. I wonder these alternatives: Is the game any more compliant, that’s why throw me out? or is there any big problem in this version of the game, I did not get to play then? Fortunately, this game play on my computer yet. The name and version of the device is Samsung Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505) & Android Lollipop 5.0.1

    No problem. It’s all good, THENewChuck. It’s good that you already bought the extended edition. And with my post about the new extended on here, this will help anyone to become aware of this new extended edition, whether they bought the original soundtrack that was released back in 2014 or not. :)

    Wonder if the new Stella, in two different forms, will be offered in the Telepod toys? Hope Rovio and Hasbro will bring out the new characters for the Telepods.

    Our 2 iPads have updated but now the app won’t open it keeps crashing. We don’t play via fb just on our own. I don’t want to reload app in case we lose our ranking.
