Forum goer Ravage XK first alerted us to it, and now Rovio have announced via the Angry Birds Facebook page, the latest update to Angry Birds Transformers entitled "Deceptihogs Revenge".




The update, which has already been available to Android users for a number of weeks, unlocks new areas of Piggy Island and also makes available new characters and new features including the option for Skywarp to destroy an event, as well as add some accessories to your Autobirds and Deceptihogs.

Grab the latest update from the Apple Store and Play Store and then head to the Seibertron.com Energon Pub Forums and let us know what you think of it!

It takes a long time to load the game on its first start, maybe its downloading assets.
Map has changed, Skywarp level destroying feature has appeared.

Yay, new stuff to do.

So what's new? I'd like to know if there are any differences with the last Android update.

New things I have spotted.

• Higher frame rate, everything seems smoother.
• The Coin icons on the map have changed, as has the animation of the coins being added to your total. They used to move up in one clump, now they stream one after the other.
• Skywarp can eliminate levels you cant complete.
• Seem to be two new areas you can explore, City and sort of River area.
• New type of enemy, the Piranhacon.
• Some levels have Slow Mo and Speed Up zones, these are activated as you pass through coloured gates.
• The City levels have large, lit up targets that when hit release an energon cube.
• You may notice Soundwave in his Cybertronian streetlight mode in the City.
• A new collection of trophies to achieve.
• You can buy accessories for your bots.
• You can upload success images to Facebook when you complete a level.
• When you attack a gold box in a level with Grimlock, instead of waiting for the box to be destroyed to add the coins to your total they stream one by one as the damage is done. You don't need to destroy the box to get some coins. The box seems to change colour as you deplete the coins it contains.
• There is a Leaderboard icon on the map, don't think that was there before.
• While a bot is being upgraded you can now access the list of characters to see their level or buy accessories while the upgrade takes place. You couldn't see the others before, only the bot being upgraded.

The bots are now divided into Groups, they are:
    • Rescue Bots - Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Heatwave.
    • Instruments of Destruction - Soundwave and Soundblaster.
    • Target: 2006 - Ultra Magnus, Galvatron and Jazz.
    • Pure Warriors - Lockdown, Energon Lockdown and Brawl.
    • The Seekeers - Energon Starscream and Thundercraker.
    • Energon Fueled - Energon Grimlock, Energon Soundwave, Energon Galvatron and Energon Optimus Prime.
    • Variant Versions - Ultimate Megatron, Ultimate Optimus Prime, Ultimate Grimlock and High Octane Bumblebee.
    • Leaders - Bludgeon, Sentinal Prime, Grey Slam Grimlock and Dark Megatron.

• Unlocking all characters in a group will add a percentage bonus to your pig/coin score on a level, max bonus seems to be 40%.
• Characters in certain groups have different abilities. Ultimate characters, for example, get their pig and coin score doubled when they complete a level but if they don't complete it they get nothing at all. Energon characters are more powerful but have weaker shields.



That's about everything I have noticed so far.

That's fairly covers everything we got as well.

Yeah, would have thought they would keep them the same. Does the Android version suffer from crashes when you try to watch a rewards video?
Re: Angry Birds Transformers Deceptihogs Revenge Update (1639295)

Not really crashes, sometimes they just don't load so you keep trying until you hit your limit.

Plenty of glitches in the game though.

No crashes in the reward video's, aside from that 'Stella'-video from time to time.

The IOS-update seems to cover both Android updates in one go. Good.

Still amazed at how long it took them to roll the update out though. I know Android users had to wait two weeks for the game to be released, but you iOS guys had to wait what ... a month?
Re: Angry Birds Transformers Deceptihogs Revenge Update (1639322)

An eternity.

Wasn't so bad. The wait allowed me get to my bots up to level 8 and gather many pigs and crystals. Allowed me to unlock all the new bots straight away.

Got all mine (including what you've just unlocked) up to level 7 except for four who are level 8.

Going to be a slog to get them all to level 10.

Oh and the Miles Travelled trophy/achievement still isn't working. Still stuck at 0 miles.

You forgot the most important update, the "Energon Shield" has now become the "State Farm™ Energon Shield." A little ship with a State farm logo now projects the shield onto you.
Re: Angry Birds Transformers Deceptihogs Revenge Update (1639334)
Posted by Ravage XK on January 15th, 2015 @ 7:23am CST
Hadnt noticed. No idea what State Farm is, never heard of it.
Re: Angry Birds Transformers Deceptihogs Revenge Update (1639336)

State Farm is an insurance company in the US. Not sure if they are international.

Makes sense that an insurance company gives you a shield.

Also, noticed the Eggbot appears in some levels. You can shoot it in the butt for lots of coins.

These updates. Bah.

I'm not sure why they're advertising this now, because I've had the updated version of the game for about two weeks now, I wanna say.

I finally unlocked level 100 and I don't care for those new levels even a slight bit. That fast forward/slo mo warp gate gimmick is getting on my nerves and if there's a way to use them to my advantage, it's out of my reach, because I can't figure it out. Had to cheat and have Skywarp take care of it for me.

Not all updates are great, this is a great example of such a thing.

At level 120 you get to pig city, which is way more fun.

Looks like Rovio pushed a stability patch last night. Did anyone else update?

And of course I'm still finishing missions just for another one to disappear without me getting coins and piggies. :HEADHURTS: :BANG_HEAD: :roll:
