Ah, spring time. The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming, and the free Bird Coins have come to Angry Birds Star Wars II.
At least, they have now thanks to the Galactic Giveaway update (1.4, for those who like numbers) which hides 1,000 coins in the various levels of the Bronze Award-winning fowl flinger.
Collecting the coins is relatively simple: once you see them in a level, hit them with something - a bird, a pig, a rocket, whatever else you have in hand - and you'll see them credited to your total.
But free coins isn't all that the Galactic Giveaway's bringing to Angry Birds Star Wars II.
Time-locked Carbonite Rewards now allow you to earn a free Character Swap every eight hours. If you don't like waiting for the carbonite to melt, you can spend a few coins (up to 80) to get the Swap instantly.
Speaking of Swaps, you can now use Bird Swaps on Porkside Levels and play as a traitor bird (or pig) for a small fee - 10 coins per level. If you aren't keen on paying per level, you can spend 299 coins (per side) to swap to your heart's content.
Finally, the last new feature is perhaps one of the most welcome - you can now disable Character Hints by clicking on the gear in the home screen. Best of all, this new option doesn't require, or even make mention of, coins.
