Angry Birds Rio Carnival Upheaval Walkthrough Level 26 (8-11)

The best strategy for Carnival Upheaval level 8-11 is to lob the White bird, bombing directly above the first marmoset and ricocheting the bird through the ropes holding the TNT. The majority of both structures should be destroyed. Launch the first Black bird into the top-right structure, pushing it off the ledge to the right and onto the final marmoset. The score in the video below is 124,650.

134420. White then black birds into the first tower. Same for the second tower. If you destroy everything it makes better score.

Lucky one, shot first bird up high and bombed by first marmoset. 2nd bird shot through the middle of the second balloon bunch and exploded by the middle of back column.

hi Heather sorry I only just saw your post…..I use all the birds .the first bird I shoot down at the ground to left of first lot of balloons then drop the egg and the bird will shoot through the balloons and hit middle of first structure ,leaving a good spot to throw the black bird ,u should of destroyed most of the first lot of concrete,the next egg bird u can throw straight between the TNT and the balloons holding it ,try and wait until it drifts as far right as possible so when it drops u get max damage ,and the white will do just abit of damage ,but u should then have another clear shot to place the black bird near the middle ,and cross your fingers ,….it won’t take long to get decent scores ..hope that helps abit

I struggled and struggled with this one, but it is one of those levels where using more birds makes sense. After many, many tiries using this approach I got my score up to 137,770 and there was still some debris left (read: room for improvement).

I cannot do more with another stategies. 4B, 1st trought the baloons – any way with possibility to kill nearest marmoset, 2nd – to the concrete cotrner (with or without this marmoset), 3rd – depend on situation. If there are some staff on the ground – bomb it with WB egg and WB by 2nd baloons group. 4rd – same constucted corner as for 1st shoot. Scores from 120 to over 134K. Repetable.

Alternative Strategy

High arc the WB so that it bombs the stone platform right above the second marmoset. You want the WB to go high and NOT hit the balloons. You should eliminate the three marmosets this way.

Bomb bird to the second structure, going THROUGH the balloon strings. TNT drops to the ground and explodes while the bomb bird penetrates into the tower. The TNT and BB should explode at about the same moment and destroy the level.

Two birder, score 134.8K.

I used about the same strategy. I made the white bird drop the egg in the exact same spot cutting the ropes of the top row of balloons. With correct timing, the tnt can fall to the right, but if not, use the black bird to finish the level.

By crivit (@crivit)Score: 146,660

since i never saw anyone put up this strat, it is my own interpretation though:
1st bird little bit less than straight wait till the balloons are at the closest point; hit as many balloons as possible and follow through to the cord and ignite the tnt very close to the right structure. At this point when u are over 73k u can go for a 2 birder just shooting it just over the remaining balloons. If not, no problem at all u can always go for the bonus shot at the remaining right structure ideally bouncing the white into the remaining debris on the left.
This strat is repeatable with 140k+ scores

A little difficult to get the 73k with the first bird, but quite doable with a little persistence. Downhill from there!

peoples are giving lots of opinions and strategies based on their experiences. But best method is a combination of 2/3 different strategies.

First – throw 1st bird with very high trajectory almost vertical, drop egg at the very base of left tower, drop it from a bit high that follow through will destroy balloons and ignite TNT. This shot will kill almost all the monkeys in first tower. 2nd bird on middle of the right tower with high trajectory that it could penetrate the rocks and blast it with right timing will destroy everything on right. 3rd WB for the remaining on left,try to destroy as much as rock possible

Perhaps second to that is the most repeatable strategy that has the potential for a very high score. I have only tried @crivit‘s strategy, and readily achieved 142k.

I thought that there was the key which terminated in two birds to the first bird.
All the left building are easy to fall down when they leave only the green of a balloon hanging TNT.
The left building never fell down by the way of falling of other balloons.

@kelani I will give it a try:
Fling Mathilda a little below straight, with with flinging till the balloons are the most closest to the sling. The idea is depicted in this picture: AB Rio carnival Upheaval #26 – first bird

Then, at that is evil, the black guy. Moonshot as @jaydee said or a straight fling? When all is working fine the bomb will have to fall deep into the concrete for best results.
Please let me know is this is clear enough,

@comex666 & @jaydee, where is the TNT falling with this shot?

I’m not sure 2 seconds on a Windows-based device means the same thing on an iPad or Android device. I’ve tried adjusting the timing (less or more than 2 seconds) thinking that perhaps the balloons move differently with our different platforms Windows vs. iOS, but I’m still not seeing anywhere near the destruction with shot #1.

Thanks guys & congrats on yet another puppy comex666.

That’s how I interpreted and played it @Kelani ~ trying for the White Bird to knock over the pper portion of the far right tower to take out the lower right marmoset and the TNT to take out the remainder of the right structure. The difficultly I have playing the strategy is that after going through the balloon strings White Bird most often hasn’t enough force remaining to topple the tower turning the play into a 3-bird score.

~ BUT ~ I had pretty good success playing a slight variation ~ waiting for the balloons and TNT to drift left before launching White Bird. Goal is to have TNT drop to explode on the projecting stone plank at the bottom right side of the left structure which then topples to the left taking out it’s three marmosets and the left set of balloons. Bomb bird then to the middle of the right structure (near top of the middle hollow wood block) taking that structure and all remaining marmosets out for a fairly repeatable 2-bird solution. Good destruction with the first shot is key to the highest scores possible with this method.

It’s too bad the 10/11-12/14 Challenge ran out time as I suspect the variant method had a chance at the Underdog ~ maybe next time around?

This is basically @crivit ‘s strat, but just a little different.

First shot. Instead of hitting as many balloons as possible, (which didn’t work for me at all) I aim a little farther down than almost straight across and aim so the bird body goes through the strings between the upper three balloons and the middle three. The shot has to be made when the balloons are close. The shot has to be made quickly, the FIRST TIME the balloons get close to the slingshot. (the second and third time don’t work at all. The fourth or fifth time can work buy it is too long to wait.) The bird body then needs to sever the strings above the TNT, but below the green balloon. You want the TNT to ignite close to the bottom part of the right side structure.

Second shot. I’m not sure which is the best shot, but I used a high arc and came down on the two cement planks right above the left ear of the second monkey from the left. If you can break through both planks you can get lots of destruction.
