Angry Birds Turns 4! Celebrate with 15 New Levels in Birdday Party!

Happy 4th Birthday Angry BirdsRovio has adopted a new tradition of updating the original Angry Birds annually on December 11th to celebrate the birthday of entertainment’s best-selling app of all time. And this year is now exception! Angry Birds v4.0.0 is now available for iOS, Mac, and Android via Google Play. The update should be available for more platforms soon.

The update features a bit of a change to the Birdday Party episode, so please take note.

The numbering in this episode has changed (actually, it changed in the Short Fuse update, but it’s of more consequence now). Originally, levels were numbered 18-x and 19-x. Rovio has switched to a different labeling system since they seem to be planning to continue this annual tradition in the future. The new labeling is Cake 2 Level x (previously Chapter 18), Cake 3 Level x (previously 19), and now…

This update includes:

  • 15 new levels in Birdday Party! These are labeled as Cake 4 Level x to mark the 4th birthday of Angry Birds. Note that the chapters are listed reverse-chronologically. We will be updating our leaderboards and walkthroughs to reflect the name changes soon. Our walkthroughs for the new levels are live.
  • Any Golden Eggs? We didn’t find any, but keep your eyes peeled. Each chapter of Birdday Party has had one before now.
  • No new achievements for iOS, since ABo is nearly full in GameCenter.
  • Still no on-screen distinction between Power Up and “clean” scores, besides the lightning bolt that appears on the Level Completed screen. But thankfully the data files distinguish.
  • Helpful Tip: If you are experiencing any issues with a level not completing promptly, there is a “Fast Forward” button that appears in the bottom-right corner once all pigs have been popped. This will force the level to end, tally your extra birds, and show you your final score. While not a new feature, it can still be helpful!

Happy Birthday BirdLeader!

Of course, we are all thankful for Rovio’s heavy stream of levels recently. Both the staff and community here at AngryBirdsNest appreciates all that Rovio does for us.

And in the ultimate coincidence, the anniversary of Angry Birds aligns perfectly with the real-life birthday of our Commander in Beak! So join me in wishing our very own @BirdLeader an extremely HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

For those who don’t know, BL will be celebrating his 75th birthday. He enjoys long walks on the beach with his walker, buying new tennis balls for the legs of his walker, and denture cream. (I kid of course. But as the baby of the staff, I get to have some fun at his expense. Thanks for everything BL!)

    Happy Birthday Rovio and especially @BirdLeader.

    Thank you BL for all your work, effort and dedication in keeping the Nest a great place to visit, post and have fun. If you have the time, do something special for yourself on this very special day of the year. It only comes once and we have a limited supply.

    Oh, given you have had 75 of these special days that is great, still fling’n at 75 wow, only joking but hope to be someday, same at you.

    Played a couple of level of BP and it appears to be in the same great tradition of AB games. Missed all the floating background party stuff. Maybe in the later levels.

    Never played or knew about the original Birday Party, but the first 9 levels I have played today are both challenging and fun.

    Happy Birthday @birdleader!

    Great, 15 more levels. Still not above average on Short Fuse. Trying to keep up with Seasons daily levels and now another update.

    But one thing I noticed. On the Level selection screen, there are 3 dots to select which group of levels in Birdday Party. When I select the far left dot, I enter the Cake 4 levels. When I select the middle dot, I get Cake 3 Levels. And when I select the far right dot, I get Cake 2 levels.
    Is it just me, or is this backwards?

    It’s the same style as AB Seasons, in which older seasons appear on the right, newer seasons of the left. I assume this is because each chapter is intended to stand alone and isn’t part of a longer narrative.
