Angry Birds Turns 6! Celebrate with 15 New Levels in BirdDay Party!

Happy 6th Birthday Angry Birds

Rovio 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 v6.0.1 is now available for iOS, and Android via Google Play. The update should be available for more platforms soon.

The numbering in BirdDay Party is a bit different from other episodes, so please take note.

Originally, levels were numbered 18-x and 19-x. Rovio adopted a different labeling system since they seem to be planning to continue this annual tradition in the future. The labeling is Cake 2 Level x (previously Chapter 18), Cake 3 Level x (previously 19), Cake 4 Level x, and now Cake 6 Level x. BirdDay 5 was celebrated in a special episode of it’s own.

This update includes:

  • 15 new levels in Birdday Party! These are labeled as Cake 6 Level x to mark the 6th birthday of Angry Birds. Note that the chapters are listed reverse-chronologically. Our walkthroughs for the new levels are Live!.
  • Any Golden Eggs? We didn’t find any … yet, 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 Birdday Angry Birds and @birdleader!

There are any GE’s? I don’t see after many looks.
I noticed Rovio fixed Egg Defender 9 but level 14 is still bugged.

Hello,how can you see the data inside the data files? Do you know the encryption key of the lua files? If so, how did you obtain the key, and do you have the keys for all the AB games? Thanks.

Also, on near every episode’s Level Select screen, the actual indicators are pushed to the bottom-right corner and the birds/pigs in the corners are removed to make room for an Angry Birds Friends ad (The exceptions being M&D (Golden egg), Bad Piggies (Has a link already), RMF (Indicates what levels you are playing) and the Golden Egg levels (Eggs too close to the bottom?)).

Another, bigger Angry Birds Friends ad also appears on the sidelines of the screen when you beat and/or 3-star a stage.

@justadoo444 Yes me too, mine and dine still have their birds and pigs (like bad piggies and red’s mighty feathers as you say) but all other levels lost their birds and pigs…. ;((

After finishing and 3-starring all the levels, I received the usual Congratulations on finishing the episode message. But it also said to try to get 3 stars in all levels, which I had already done. Makes me think I’m missing something? or is the message just boilerplate?

Since Birdday 6 is oart of the overall Birdday Episode, that means you likely haven’t 3-starred every level in Birdday 1-4 as well.

By 3sjs (@3sjs)

I got the same message, as well, and I have 3-starred all levels of the entire episode. I don’t think I’m missing anything, so I just chose to ignore it.

Rovio must get a “rest-in-peace” if continue like this.

I requested that “Angry Birds: Birdday” idea and was counting days till today. No evolution, and worse than this, the Cake 6 hasn’t its own BG!!! It has borrowed the BG of Cake 2!!!

Rovio, WTH on you!?
Hey, really that’s RED power-up that is here???

Happy birthday!
I was happy still able update on my old device, which BP & ABs is not compatible.

There is some annoying promoting ABf and occasionally showing discount for purchase PU that really useless for me.

I’m really enjoying the new levels. Very simple, very retro. They feel like Mighty Hoax/Poached Eggs levels.

I was waiting for Creartor Mode since 2012 when Amazing Alex was launched but Rovio is killing himself every year without nothing new in Angry Birds Classic. I’m frustrated with this update.

How is this year now exception? Did you mean that this year is not exception?

By Jan Broughton

I downloaded the update for the sixth birthday and had managed to get three stars on all except game four – with the three hanging spiders. Now, for some unknown reason, I can’t find the game again. When I open birthday party it’s only the fifth birthday. Please tell me how I can find the newest game again. I can’t get it on my husbands iPad either.
