A glitch is an error in a game in which something happens that the game makers did not intend to make happen. Also called bugs.
List of Glitches
Here is the list of glitches found in Angry Birds.
How to: Fire Chuck or Al into the air while using its ability. Then, fire a second bird (this one can be any bird) so it hits the first bird with the ability. If done correctly, Chuck will have his "speeding" sprite replacing its Corpse sprite, and Al will have his mouth wide open as if he's flying in the air or if he hits something.
- The glitched bird will disappear after left immobilized, just like any other corpse, but will make pain noises and such.
- An additional Matilda corpse glitch can be performed. Perform the Corpse Glitch with Al, but use Matilda as the secondary bird. If done correctly, Matilda should have a face with closed eyes and a tight beak, as if she's flying in the air before shooting the egg bomb.
Explanation: The game makers programmed a bird to enter its corpse sprite if it hit the ground, pigs, blocks, other birds, etc. They, however, probably forgot to program the system when a bird using its ability hits a flying bird, thus leaving the bird "frozen", until it disintegrates. Since Birdday Party was released in 2011, this was fixed.
White Bird Glitch
Prerequisites: Matilda unlocked
How to: Fire Matilda and use her egg-shooting ability. Angle the bird so that it will hit a piece of ground (indestructible material). Sometimes if this would happen, Matilda will become her non-egg-shooting corpse sprite. This only happens in Angry Birds Rio, Angry Birds Chrome, Angry Birds Friends, and the 3rd Birdday Party update from Angry Birds.
Blue Birds Glitch
Prerequisites: The Blues unlocked
How to: Split Blue Jay in AB Free, AB Lite, and AB Seasons. Only Blue Jay will be corpsed immediately. The others, Jake & Jim, will not be corpsed at all. Since the Birdday Party update was released for AB Original, all birds are now corpsed. This does not happen in AB Rio and AB Space.
Prerequisites: Unlock any level in which the birds next to the slingshot are so close, the bird on the slingshot can stretch and touch them.
How to: "Rub" the bird on the slingshot on another unused bird. The slingshot bird should slowly rotate, allowing the player to fire upside-down birds and such. The birds also can end up like this if debris hits them.
Restart Glitch (Angry Birds (Google Chrome) only)
How to: In Angry Birds Google Chrome, there is a slight possibility that the game will restart.
Blank Screen Glitch (Impossible to be made in PC and Mac versions)
Prerequisites: Lagging game (can be done with low battery)
How to: Tap the screen multiple times while performing an action (such as launching a bird from the Slingshot) while the game lags, and if done correctly, the game will partially crash and the screen will go all white or all black, but with the pause button remaining. The only way to get out of the glitch is to go back to the level selection menu; resetting the level does nothing.
Notes: Since the HD versions usually don't lag, this will not work on the HD versions.
Tomorrow Day Glitch
Prerequisites: Angry Birds Google Chrome, between December 1st and December 25th
How to: If the player waits long enough, the Season's Greedings level for the next day will appear.
Go to Angry Birds Seasons 2-13 (Ham 'O' Ween) or Angry Birds Rio 12-3 (Smugglers' Plane), for 2-13, where in the front, there is an indestructible spiral, shoot Bubbles there, and when he expands, he will disappear. In Smugglers' Plane, shoot Al there to destroy the front of it, so Bubbles can shoot into the thin gap and make sure he gets to the bottom so when he expands, he will also disappear.
Invisibility Glitch 1 (Google Chrome only)
If your computer is slow enough, Red will turn invisible. But most of the time, Red will be visible.
Invisibility Glitch 2
In Angry Birds v3.1.0, Chuck sometimes becomes invisible in the game and bird tutorials.
Bomb Glitch (Angry Birds Only)
Go to Surf and Turf level 9 and fire Bomb at a piece of ground. When Bomb hits the ground, he will go from brown to his flying sprite, and then red where he explodes. It also happens on Golden Egg 23.
Go to Angry Birds level 14-2 (Ham 'em High) or level 20-12 (Bad Piggies).
For 14-2: Fire Terence and hit him on Bomb. Then, use Bomb to hit the other Terence. Then, launch Terence anywhere and his pain noises sound like Bomb's.
For 20-12: (Not available for Mac) Use Terence to hit Chuck for iOS or Hal for Android/PC/Samsung. Instead of Terence's regular pain noises, either Chuck or Hal's pain noises will be heard.
Got to Piglantis level 2-1. Waste Bubbles and Bomb. Fire the first Chuck into the water. Then wait a few seconds and he will go to his corpse without touching anything while underwater.
1. Go to Back to School level 1-5. Throw the first Stella at the apple in front of the structure and use her ability once you get near it. Throw the second Stella at the apple while using the ability, and Stella will spin inside the bubble.
2. Do the same thing again but go lower. Using this, Stella will use her ability but won't be in the bubble for a second.
Summer Pignic Glitch
Get three stars on Summer Pignic and go to the Golden Basket.
First, throw the first Bomb to the lower part of the fruit pile. Second, throw the next Bomb into the little strip of fruit on the bottom. Wait a little bit and then the rest of the fruit will wiggle and go away. This can get you insanely high scores.
Smugglers Plane Glitch
Go to 12-3 in Angry Birds Rio and fire Bubbles high, as soon as you launch press the Eagle Eye Button, fire the sardines and wait. The sardines will change into the Bubbles' inflated sprite, the Mighty Eagle won't come. It would fail the whole level.
