Angry Birds Update v1.5.3 includes Chapter 14 of Ham ‘Em High

The latest update to the original Angry Birds is out now on most platforms and devices, including the iPhone (last this time, not including the PC/Mac). This update includes the final chapter of Ham ‘Em High. The update is now available for most mobile devices, including iPhone, iPad, Android, and WebOS. The update includes:

  • 15 new levels
  • 3 Bonus levels that are unlocked by “liking” Angry Birds on Facebook
  • 2 new Golden Eggs (only 1, #20, confirmed so far)
  • “Rovio News” that appears when you pause a level. FWIW, my son won’t like this, as he frequently pauses to see what kind of destruction his bird caused.
  • Additional achievements

We’re already working on the 3 star and Golden Egg walkthroughs and will have those posted as soon as possible.

    I believe you are notified in-game of an available update.

    Installed this update, played the mine levels but ham em high level 3 still has the padlocks on?

    You mean Chapter 14? Some users have reported this. It seems that you have to beat level 13-15 (Ch. 13, Level 15) again to gain access to Ch. 14. small price to pay. So just re-defeat the last level and you should be good to go.

    By julia

    nope. didn’t work for me.

    Hmm, odd. Perhaps close out of your app and re-attempt. This issue was first mentioned in this forum post so you can see how it has been corrected by other users.

    By jomo

    Yes, many thanks that worked for me.
    Just replayed the last level and it opened it up!

    Cheers AMslimfordy.

    By julia

    not sure. i am playing on the pc though.

    By JB777

    Me either. I have beaten 13-15 about 7 times. Still has the coming soon sign on ch 14.

    By donna

    the recent update appeared to have unlocked 14, that is it doesn’t say “coming soon” anymore, but it still is not unlocked. I’m using a mac. should i reinstall or what? HELP!!!!

    You need to re-defeat level 13-15 to unlock Chapter 14 (some users had to defeat it a few times; others day you have to set a new high score)

    By julia

    i think i’m just going to buy it again, the standalone version. because i’m using intel appup, and it hasn’t updated yet. and that’s not cool. another 5 bucks isn’t going to break the bank for me.
    i tried to beat 13-15 again. i got a new high score, and i actually got 3 stars, but still didn’t open chapter 14…

    Only other advice I have is to restart your entire computer and try 13-15 again. As far as I’ve heard, everyone eventually unlocked Ch. 14, but they were never too specific about their process.

    I understand your frustration and I’m surprised it is taking this long as well. But Rovio has confirmed AppUp will receive updates.

    By JB777

    I still see “Coming Soon” on my mac for 16-45 Ham ‘Em High although I haver three stars on every level prior and even defeated the second level again. Is it not out yet?

    Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    It is out. Just takes a little cunning. Restart your device, defeat level 13-15 again.

    By JB777

    Didn’t work. Have beaten it several times, even with a new high score of 143,000

    Have you tried restarting your computer and giving it another go?

    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    Android is currently up to Chapter 17. You need to update your app via the Android Market or Amazon Appstore.

    By Diana

    Thank you SO MUCH!! I’ve been so sad trying to get 14 open!! Now I can keep playing! :) Now what about Mine and Dine 17? It says “Coming Soon” so I presume it’s not ready yet? I also have Rio and am waiting for the next game after Carnival Upheaval…would that be Seasons? Any idea when PC players can expect it?

    Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    Hi Diana,
    Yes, PC updates are expected soon.
    Mine and Dine will be one of those updates; as will Airfield Chase for Rio.
    Seasons is still “coming soon” but we haven’t heard much about that.

    By Jane

    I have Angry Birds and Angry Birds Rio for my PC that I purchased from Rovio’s dowloadangrybirds website. Are updates automatic or do I need to install them from somewhere? I don’t see any updates under the play icon.

    Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    The in-game updated only checks for updates periodacally, so if you’re not getting prompted for an update and are in a hurry you can download a new installer from download.angrybirds.com.  Updating this way should maintain your progress just fine, but if you want to be safe backup you LUA files first.  Those files are typically found in your /user/AppData/Rovio/ folder, but that path can vary slightly depending on your version of Windows.
    If you update in-game it will download a new installer and overwrite the old one, so if your keen on keeping the older version (just in case you want to revert) backup the installer.  This is probably something most people don’t care too much about.

    Current versions are ABo v1.6.2 and Rio v1.2.2.

    You need to update your app.

    Hi, how do you get the 3 facebook levels on Mac lion? I have scrolled through 12,13,14..but there’s no face book levels(three i believe) after wards..any help?

    Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    Facebook levels are not available for Mac/PC on either ABo or Seasons. It is unclear if they will ever be added, but we doubt it (since they likely would already exist if that was the plan).

    By Ryan

    I have angry birds for the iPod Touch and it’s great but when I see the bonus levels for liking AB on Facebook, when I tap on the icon it says “loading” for like half a second and it goes away, then nothing happens. What is wrong and is there a way to fix it?

    Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    This was fixed for iPad in the v2.0.2 update. It will likely land for SD in the coming days.

    By Shahed

    Arghhhh I can’t get the facebook game on ham em high on iphone. I got 3 gold stars on all the pervious levels but still the 3 Facebook games are locked HELP!!!!!

    Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    Update your app to v2.0.2, then click the “Like” logo above the levels.

    By Shahed

    If I update it would I have to start all over again? And I clicked on the logo a MSG appears saying loading and then nothing happens

    updates don’t erase your progress.

    Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    Updating should maintain your progress.
    Yes, that’s the reason why you need to update. This was fixed in v2.0.2.

    By Shahed

    Yayy it’s working thank you for all your help

    By Frankie

    Hi, how come I finished the mine and dine levels with ham em high, replayed from chapter 14-12 to 14-15 after each other, have the 2.0.2 updated version or something like that, liked it on facebook and still have padlocks on the stupid levels? thx

    Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    You have to use the in-app dialogue box to unlock those levels.

    By Frankie

    I did, and it just stazes at the point that I “like” Angry Birds

    Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    Sorry, you will need to contact Rovio directly then.

    By Frankie

    ok thanks for the help though

    By Lola

    Hey i have the same problem. Did you end up working out how to fix it?

    Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    As I said, it is my understanding that the Facebook levels can be unlocked in-game if you are running v2.0.2. If you are still having difficulty and are running v2.0.2, you will need to contact Rovio.

    By Philip

    I can’t unlock the Ham em’ High Facebook levels! My Angry Birds app is up to date, and I have confirmed several times that I’ve liked the Angry Birds Facebook page, through syncing my FB to the Angry Birds app, and the levels are still locked??

    Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    You must “like” them through the in-app dialogue box. You cannot do it through an external system.

    By marsha

    this is also my problem… any ideas. this is for the touch…

    Rovio is still investigating this problem.

    By Superbird

    I haven’t done anything and it have automatically unlocked the facebook levels for me.I’m on the latest version too.

    By Peter

    I have achieved 3 star ratings on all facebook (14-16. 14-17 and 14-18)levels in Ham “em High. For some reason the scores are not added to my episode totals, on all other episodes I’m in the top 2000, for episode 14 (3 stars everywhere) I’m only ranked 87000. Also when I improve myself on one of the facebook levels, the episode total doen’t change.

    For total achievements I’m rated 53 out of 60 while I only have 4 tasks (3 x eagle, 500K bricks)to close out.

    I play on an ipad2

    Thanks< Peter

    Sometimes Game Center can be sluggish and takes more time to register scores and achievements. Your episode total should include those levels.
