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.

    Second golden egg is 14-4 on top of the hill on the right. Zoom out and hit it with a small angle and speedup the yellow bird.

    By Erik

    When u use android the egg is behind the banner.

    For starring the Golden Egg you get when you 3-star every level on ham em high, just stretch the accordion to the right and wait for a while and press a button. The star will appear where the accordion used to be.

    Thanks for the tip on the golden star Erik. I’d been trying a bunch of things but couldn’t get it.

    Indeed. We’ve updated our Golden Egg walkthrough with this info. It’s #20 and it includes an image of the trajectory you need to fling the bird at.

    Will there be any more updates on the regular AB?

    @joggle496 I wouldn’t expect it out on the Mac and PC platforms right now. The Mac/PC updates are normally not synced with the mobile variants.

    @RLZIII Ok im just wondering if it will be out by the end of the week for PC/Mac

    I don’t know anything for sure, but if I had to guess: probably not. It seems like Rovio is trying really hard to get Angry Birds Rio out quickly across all of the platforms, so I think that is their focus as of now (including getting it out to PC/Mac). It wouldn’t surprise me if it took several weeks, a month, or possibly even more to get the World 14 update out to the PC.

    Rovio has a lot on their plate, and I think it’s going to take a while until they get everything in sync and keep it that way. Angry Birds Seasons is still missing on a lot of platforms. Rovio definitely bit off a lot, but hopefully not more than it can chew. I fear that some platforms will stay a non-priority for a while.

    By Jokubas Beliauskas

    Don’t give up. I thought that Ham’Em High levels won’t be even on Pc/Mac.But they are. If I would need to guess: chapter 14 levels will be on Pc or Mac.You just have to wait. And I am waiting.

    By incert

    1st golden egg in 14-4 and second when get 3 stars in all level ;)

    By notacreativename

    So true, and the golden egg level after 3 stars on everything sure drove me nuts till I figured it out…and now that I’ve got all 3 stars on this one, some were pretty challenging…it was a fun day since I got it yesterday (nice for android to finally get something first)…all I need is Rio now

    By Patrick Spreng

    Weird. I got 1.5.3 on Tuesday on my Palm Pre! So I guess webOS was first with this one.

    By Elias

    Yes… but the second and last one is a musical golden egg. I hate musical golden egg… kkkkkk.

    You can use the 4 birds, dont worry about that… with my 68000 points = 3 stars.

    By Marcello

    3 stars with 65700. the problems (for me) are FB’s levels 1 & 3… :(

    Awesome! I’m gonna have to call out sick from work! Maybe I should save it for Rio. Avian flu. And since I’m off on a tangent here, anyone know what’s up with the “Ethan” up in the sky over 8-3, Danger Above? I know I get points by hitting it with yellow birds and the hen, but that’s all I noticed.

    Rank: DaBomb with 315 points
    By Dan (@dan)

    The level was designed by a some kid called Ethan, I think he must have won a competition or something. You don’t get anything special for hitting the letters though, just points.

    Nevermind this comment. Finally got 3 stars. 109560

    We’ve heard mighty eagle is coming to android fairly soon, but I’m not sure about achievements.

    By Justin B

    Good… I NEED both of these. I have three stars on every level of AB and ABS and all golden egg stars. I am dying for something that will keep me occupied for more than a day.

    By bidiey_afandi

    i just brought angry birds v1.5.3 and finished some levels but still i dunno how to get mighty eagle. Does that mean there no mighty eagle for symbian 3?

    Rank: Pig Leader with 11200 points
    By FujiToast (@fujitoast)

    Correct, currently the Mighty Eagle is still iOS only.

    The page for level 14-6 shows the video for level 14-5. I NEED help with 14-6!

    I don’t know about you guys, but i think these new levels are the funnest ones in the Ham Em’ High episode.

    finally i can have all the golden eggs

    By TheSpoon

    Wow! Great update! Just 3 starred all levels and got a feather in each as well. Level 14 – 7 was the most difficult for me to feather, along with F-1! Still don’t have “smash maniac” achievement!?!

    Can’t wait for RIO!

    By Ahem

    Can you offer any tips on how to get the feather in 14-7? That’s the only one I’m stuck on.

    FujiToast was kind enough to throw a walkthrough together for that.

    This was the update we were supposed to get with Go Green, Get Lucky – but it wasn’t actually there!

    By mannem

    I downloaded the v.1.5.3 update to my EVO (Android), but Level 14 is still locked! Any thoughts on what I should do? I can’t re-download the new update from Android Market without deleting the whole thing, and wouldn’t that mean I’d have to start over? Yikes.

    Rank: Sling God with 30305 points
    By Bird Leader (@birdleader)

    Does it say coming soon or are the levels locked? If it’s the latter then you haven’t passed all the preceding levels yet.

    By mannem

    The “coming soon” label is gone. I have three stars on previous levels in HEH. And I was able to get to the Facebook games. So I don’t know what the heck is going on.

    By mannem

    Fixed! I went back and replayed the last game on level 13, and that did the trick. Weird.

    Rank: Sling God with 30305 points
    By Bird Leader (@birdleader)

    The Facebook levels are available anytime, so they aren’t a good indicator. Double check that you indeed have 3 starred all levels. You didn’t copy this data over from another phone by chance?

    By Ej

    I cant get the update for the final levels on ham em high. It says unknown reason 18. How do i get the download?

    Not sure. You might have to email [email protected] for this one.

    By Studeelicious

    Does anyone else think the score addict for ham em high is too low? I don’t even have three stars on all the levels but already got score addict. That hasn’t happened on other episodes for me.

    Rank: DaBomb with 315 points
    By Dan (@dan)

    Agreed. Maybe they did the score addict for ham ’em high before adding the 3 Facebook levels? I’ve got 4,405,730 and got score addict before 3 starring all the new levels too. Still waiting for Smash Maniac though!!

    By xBloopBloopx (@xbloopbloopx)

    The score addict achievement was embarrassing! When are they going to come out with the hard levels that have you ripping your hair out on each one.

    Last two levels? Like two of the facebook levels? Or are you talking about worlds 13 & 14?

    Have you updated the app via the App Store? It doesn’t auto-update.

    I mean all of level 14 and 15! Not the Facebook levels

    Yep, all the Ham ‘Em High walkthroughs (the first three levels listed are the Facebook levels) can be found here and the Complete Golden Egg guide shows you how to get that last Golden Egg.

    World 14 should already be available to you. Make sure you’re running the most recent version of the game. As far as other updates in Original AB, I think may have heard a rumor about May. I’m not positive on that one though.

    By taz

    well i have 1.5.1 version right now on my pc and thanks for that

    Mighty Eagle, haven’t heard anything yet.

    By M

    i have completed all levels three stars on all. On ham em high , however it is saying I still have 7 levels to receive three stars on before the golden egg will be given. I’m perplexed. I’ve gone through every one trying to determine if I’ve over looked one. I haven’t. What do I do?

    Did you 3-star the three Facebook levels as well?
