On Seasons “The Pig Days” I still have not received an update for Level 2-5 (Guy Fawkes Night) on my Android tablet. Whine!

@sweetp, I have the same problem on my iPad. I saw the notification of the Guy Fawkes game a few days ago on my home screen, but when I opened Pig Days, Seasons restarted and the Guy Fawkes game showed availability in 5 days. Now the count-down timer reads 4 days. I no longer believe it.

@jwgardenwiz, That is really strange! I didn’t think it affected other platforms, only Android. Well, I hope Rovio sends me a reply soon.

@sweetp — Success! My Guy Fawkes update finally appeared this morning when I opened Pig Days. The screen briefly showed “1Day” but almost immediately changed to “Open”. My problem solved itself; I hope that yours does too.

Angry birds GO has a new update but on my nokia lumia 1520 WP8.1 it downloads the update then bombs out when it tries to install .I have re-downloaded it several times with the same result every time.

My original angry birds app automatically turned solid red with a picture of the angry bird on the face of the app. However, since this change occurred I cannot open the app. What happen?

There have not been wide reports of this Neil, so it may be more specific to your device. Have you tried a hard-reset of your device? Are you connected to WiFi?

When i open angry birds transformers and play it there’s always some imgages missing. The characters are not showing during game.

By Gail Whittle

All the pigs are dead but the game won’t end and give me the extra points for the two characters remaining

Hi Gail Whittle, you can use the >> arrows in the lower right corner when this happens. This should do the trick to make the game finish the level (note it skips right thru to the score/end screen, so the 10k per bird isn’t shown separately, but it is counted in the total score)

Transformers angry birds Every time I open it, it just opens and then closes 99% of the time It shuts every time. I’ve reinstalled 3 times to the same problem then every now and then it let’s me play for a bit then when I shut it and try and open it closes again

Finally found a way to fix this: turn off the internet. Why didn’t I try this earlier?

I experienced an odd bug while playing Seasons Pig Days Sci-Fi episode on my new iPad Air yesterday. The action slowed then stopped, all objects disappeared from the screen, then the screen got very dim and locked. I closed Seasons from the home screen and restarted. When I reopened the Sci-Fi episode, my previous high score was reset to zero and a second score (also zero) appeared beneath it but this score had a lightning bolt icon to the left. It looked like the solution everyone proposed to Rovio when PUs were first introduced. The additional score was gone when I reopened the game today but I did capture a screenshot for my album. Is this a bug or a new feature? I collect the free PUs but never use them.

angry birds epic loss of data when sync between devices
I normally play angry birds epic on my iPhone but one in a while I use my ipad – playing with the same account.

I have not been playing using my ipad for maybe I week, so have only been using my iPhone.
Today I started the game using my ipad and I saw that not everything was synchronized, some stuff was like when used my ipad last.

I noticed this mainly in the “league” area eg earlier this week I got some new stuff for my banner (I finally got my set bonus) I can see I don’t have this anymore, also I can see I don’t have as many points in my league as I should.

I hope you can fix this as I have put a lot of time and money in this game.

I’m experiencing some issues with Angry Birds Space on my Iphone4 IOS 7.1.2

Since I downloaded the latest update (Mirror World)…I’ve noticed that mirror world levels are really lagging to the point I can’t even activate the birds special ability to get my 3 stars

Other than that I have no issues with the normal levels. I tried deleting a few apps and resetting the phone…doesn’t seem to help.

I have this bug!
Angry Birds Space HD Mirror Worlds no Special Birds Powers.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Android

Rank: Champion with 3780 points
By Jon S (@jon3800)


Figured why this was happening. The Gloom that’s in the mirror worlds is the culprit and it’s using too much memory. If you go on the start screen

– click the gear icon
– click the mirror icon that’s in between the shop and volume.. Pressing that removes the gloom and enhances gameplay AND SPECIAL POWERS YAY!! :)

Very good tip @jon3800 Turning the special effects off will improve overall performance, and gameplay.

On my Samsung Galaxy s4, Short Fuse freezes on the third game after telling me I have received more power ups. To even use the app again I have to delete my cache.

You should contact Rovio directly with this type of problem. Not much we can do for you here. Sorry.

Is anyone else having problems with Angry Birds Space: Brass Hogs level 15 (not the mirror level)? Every time I try to get the feather, it only goes to 10% and stops filling up the feather. Any help would be appreciated.

Rank: Master Slinger with 6640 points
By E-Star (@e-star)

@daisygirl53bd Yes I have the same issue. Lots of debris gone, but my best score is 11%. two birds left, but practically nothing is added to the feather score. I really hope Rovio will fix this, what I hope is a bug, with the next update.

There is a glitch is transformers. There has been several times lately I run off surface and die. Each time that has happened I have always had more than 3 hearts left of life. I have also had up to 1700 ppints but when it ends up andunexpected like that I lose all my points earned

I have tried several times to install Epic in my Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 running on Android 4.4.2 to no avail. I always get the message “NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THIS DEVICE”. Will it ever be compatible?

By Valerie Alexander

this is my second post…I still continue to have transformer fall off their run platform. They did and I get 0 points from that run. This occurs even if I have all hearts for life. Pls fix and respond

By nick

I believe there is a glitch or hack being taken advantage of in the arena.. One hour into a weekly reset, there is a user who has 100,000 trophies.. please quickly address this issue because of the “time limit” (2weeks left) on the arena. I am using an ios device.

On Angry Birds Stella Pop (which I love) when I connect to facebook it doesn’t load my friends. I’m at the first level where you need 3 facebook friends to pass (or wait so much time) and no matter what I do none of my friends are listed. Please fix this. Thanks

Are your friends playing Stella Pop? If they don’t, I don’t believe they will show up in your list.

The next 4 episodes on ABS opened on my Android this week:
3-8 Hanami! (209,670)
3-9 Easter! (131,840)
3-10 First Spaceflight! (180,910)
3-11 Earth Day! (198,750)

I was able to play and 3-star all of them, my points are next to each level above in parentheses. I have no idea how this happened, has it happened to anyone else? If I knew how I’d upload screen-shots of each level if anyone is curious how they look.

Umm, in Epic, once i was on pig prison, after the fight the xp bar was still showing. The next battle, after i defeated 1 pig,the others took forever to attack. Same with birds, and i leveled up, but the bar didn’t show level 2, but 1.

Just been trying to play “Angry Birds Red’s Mighty feathers” on iPad.
1st screen is bugged-able to launch one bird but with second second bird no target appears finger pulsates, and game freezes-only way out is an iPad restart (press sleep/wake & home buttons simultaneously).
Verified on a friend’s iPad who also had to do a restart to escape.

Stella pop level 56, only 90 seconds on my Note3, all examples I’ve seen have 120 seconds, please advise how to fix.
