Angry Birds Rio Carnival Upheaval Walkthrough Level 19 (8-4)

Our strategy for Carnival Upheaval level 8-4 is to launch Blu into the bottom of the far-right structure, demolishing it and clearing the middle marmosets as well. In the video, we are lucky enough to have the debris topple the left tower as well, but the Yellow bird can do this otherwise. The score in the video below is 103,650.

If you have a different strategy feel free to leave a comment below; however, don't just post your score via the comments, as that's what the leaderboards are for.

If you wait the building on the left will collapse on it’s own, then just fire the blue bird at the closest monkey that’s left which should take out the rest, average score with one bird about 98,000

Seems that the “first tower collaps on it’s own” bug was fixed?

I don’t think so, but self-collapsing levels are rare. Even known levels only collapse maybe 1% ofthe time.

Well, the left tower of my older version 8-4 collapsed every time, whilst after the airfield chase update it has newer done that again. Anyhow what structures in which levels do you know might collaps partly just waiting for it?

Got 108420 by aiming the bird for the base of the second tower which set of the dynamite at the back base therby getting some extra 5-7K or so. I also first waited for the tower to collapse first.

Since the first tower is not self-collapsing anymore:
what is the “relistic” highscore? I never managed to have >90K

106160 same method as MattiasK, with some luck, tnt takes out more, so 115K must be possible.

112060 – aim the bottom of right tower…. the rest with luck to get high and high score!!!
pig baloom didn’t destroy…. if destroy …may reach 117k..
TNT exploded.

First bird in the middle of the 2nd and 3rd tower 104000

By Bill

113210 – Blue bird cast to far right like example, 3 birds left. Somehow I got something thrown against the left structure, and it was falling as fast as the right end. Lots more damage on the left. No TNT and no balloon.
Haven’t duplicated it yet. Range of score(s) have been 105K to 108K

Are you having the first tower collapse on its own, or is the debris making it drop? I ask because I am attempting to up my score and feel like the collapsing tower has been fixed.

I found that the first tower was extremely difficult to knock down. The notion that it would fall on its own made me laugh. I had to take 2 additional direct hits with a yellow and a red bird to bring it down and get that pesky first critter. It took a long time for me to get this, but I eked out a 79200. I still can’t nail 7-4. I guess everyone has their own personal hell LOL

97,430 Not even average. Since the first tower was fixed and doesn’t collapse the previously recorded high scores seem unattainable? I have yet to see the TNT blow either. Annoying that the playing field is not even.

Finally 101,820 and the last below average score is cracked! What a headache this one was after they fixed it. Anyway 2 birds. Same as above but this time, for the first time I’ve seen it, the TNT blew. I’m so glad the second shot finished the rest and I can forget this level.

Where have you landed the two birds?

Rank: Master Slinger with 5535 points
By JamBri (@jambri)Score: 101,970

First bird (like video) in the gap between middle and right structures. You need the TNT to blow up also take out the marmoset left of the middle structure. It has only happened to me once in countless tries. Second bird through the green ballon in front of the left structure cracking through the wood and taking out the last marmosets. I hope you get it.

Dear JamBri,

thanks for the info, it figures. But making the TNT explode seems a herculean task. Seems impossible to break the stone around it, so it must be mega luck via the wooden debris making the TNT shake a bit and touching the top of the stone…or do I miss something?

Rank: Master Slinger with 5535 points
By JamBri (@jambri)Score: 101,970

I don’t think you miss anything. I just kept dropping the first bird in hoping for a miracle.

By emider (@emider)Score: 101,860

OK, finally improved my score. But still a bit under average. I found it a bit more effective to “activate” the first bird manually shortly before it´s touching the right structure. My best score with the first bird was 64K, naturally blowing up the TNT and even the baloon. Then I goofed the second shot, damn. My highscore consits of a 51K first shot, some how the right marmoset on the middle structure was torpedoed to the left red feather which then fell together with the stone triangle on the green small baloon to the left making it burst so I had a clean and easy shot to finish. It´s all about patience and repeating. First shot should be over 50K or else repeat in order to save time….

Seems like I finally did it couple of minutes after previous posting! 50K first bird and a brilliant second shot. To my experiance 116K is the possible max. after the “first tower self collapse” bug was fixed. Enjoy!

Rank: Hardened with 540 points
By popoetbubu (@popoetbubu)Score: 101,470

I agree. First shot as video 55K easily repetable. Second shot: Start horizontal and then hit for acceleration, yellow bird have to pass into the gap between red and green ballon to destroy first structure.

Rank: Champion with 3300 points
By ohforfive (@ohforfive)Score: 100,200

This seems to be the way to go. I don’t think it really matters with the first shot as long as it doesn’t hit the middle structure before the right hand structure. I was just firing it at a 45 degree angle and got the same results: both the middle and right structures flattened. Points varied between 47000 and 54000.

The second shot was critical. The balloons would start moving slightly and I’d wait for an opening between the red and green and fire the yellow bird between them aimed at the skinny vertical stone and the thick horizontal wood piece. Most times, the structure around the 2 marmosets would collapse and destroy the critters. Not the most elegant solution, but after all the hours spent on this level, I’ll take what I have and go to the next level.

Let me summarize what they are talking about in the post directly above me using my Precise Aiming Techniques. I was fully zoomed in.
Blu – See the box the sling is sitting on? Pull Blu down and line the end if his tail feathers up with the left corner of that box. You can make him go a little more left, but no more than a wood plank’s width. If you activate him right before you hit the right structure, you have a higher probability of getting over 50k on the first shot. Which brings me to my next point: If you don’t get over 50k on that first shot with the marmosets on the middle and right structures gone, reset the level! I counted about 1 out of every 50 times I got the TnT to go off. The highest point total I got from the first shot was 58k.
Yellow – This shot decides your fate more than anything. Pull him back to horizontal position. Now pull down no more than 6 pixel clicks (you may have to adjust this.) Wait until the blue and red balloons are as far left as possible. Release bird and activate boost above blue balloon. This sends the bird through the green balloon’s string and goes through the small stone and wood vertical planks. The ideal result is for yellow to bounce down and take out the right sand piece at the base of the structure. This is a very difficult shot to pull off every time.
So…with all this being said, persistence is key. Don’t be surprised if you have to grind this one out for an above average score.
Good luck and happy flinging!!

Wow…after only about five tries I just got 100670!!! I also got TNT to explode once but ended with 99K something. Thank you so much @rdnzlrips82 I had been trying to get above average for several two hour sessions at a time and read your details and just like that, bam!!! I think I was aiming first bird wrong. I was usually able to get second shot by not accelerating YB but having him go straight thru green ballon and this causes him to loose power and land on that small piece of wood support and take out the first two monkeys. Thank you again for the detailed info and technique ;-)

Improved from just above 3* to 101190K following @rdnzlrips82. Never saw TNT explode; maybe 3 / 50 got above 50K with 1st shot. Not reaching 50 on first shot OK to improve score from where I started as long as 3rd marmoset from left gone along with all to right. YB is just barely pulled down from horizontal (I would say more like 1 or 2 pixels). This level makes me wonder if there aren’t some real differences between platforms???

Well, I finally got the tnt to explode and had 53k after the first bird, so of course, I flubbed the second:). I see how to do it, but my finger isn’t communicating with my brain and my eyes! Thank you so much for the extremely detailed strategy. Details, details, details! They make all the difference.

Yes, they do!!! I just tried a few more times just now while on a break and I got that TNT with first bird for 53k+ too and got a good second bird shot for a new and improved score of 105200!!! I couldn’t believe it!!! Awesome and thank you!!!

As I said above, I was having trouble with the first shot but thanks to @rdnzlrips82 I aimed it just like he said and Kaboom!!!
Second shot really is not that hard to get, you can get a great score even if you just hit him directly through the green balloon with out even accelerating and he will loose “umph” and land on the wood plank, breaking it which will get the first two monkeys and some broken wood/debris. So as long as you get a good first shot, you can get a good score by either doing the second shot like Rd describes or going through the green ballon…I got over 100k points without TNT and going through the green balloon.

I see the left tower waver a little bit, but as of yet no self collapse and guessing the 1 bird kill with blu is no walk in the park either, lots of the “L” factor required on this level.
