Angry Birds Rio Golden Beachball Walkthrough Level #1

Welcome to our first walkthrough for the secret Rio episode Golden Beachball. To unlock these levels, be sure to check out our detailed instructions →.

Update! In the v1.7.0 update, the unlocking requirement seems to have changed. See the release post for more information.

Our strategy for level 1 is to fire the first Yellow bird downward, bouncing off the yellow inner tube and detonating the TNT in the bottom-left. Launch the next Yellow bird head-on into the boulder on the left, causing it to fall onto the TNT in the first trough. Fire the third Yellow bird into the other boulder. If the far right tower does not explode from the TNT blasts, use the last Yellow bird. The score in the video below is 120,320.

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.

Hidden Cherry Alert!

I shoot 1st yellow at inner tube, accelerated and it takes out entire left side, including palm tree and TNT for 30k
2 nd bird into 1st boulder to take out all but last two marmosets and 2 remaining TNTs… For 78k total…. Though I believe if done right this bird can also knock debris into third marmoset and TNT (the one moving up and down) and TNT destroys the rest if it’s on it’s way up…when this happens I had 104240 total. Since all was destroyed, I got 20000 for the two remaining birds, for a total of 124240.
3rd bird, if needed straight into TNT for 114000k total.
4th bird 10000k.

Granted it’s early but I the 2 bird method yielded a mere 200 points more than the 3 bird method.

By Camilla

1st bid as you said on inner tube and took out all left side for a bout 26K. 2nd bird took out all the rest and gave me 97K.. 20K for the remianing birds,, and I am still on 2stars and 127K!!! grr.. ;)

Same method as video,but finised with 2 birds. 2nd bird got a lot of luck. I believe 140k+ is possible.

By lee

131,070 with 2 birds. Is it possible to get over 140k, I think it’s not.

By Kathy

Is there hidden golden beach balls or eggs or anything in these levels?

125850 – 2 birds

1st bird through the palm tree, into the vertical concrete block which bumps the TNT and explodes the left side.

2nd bird through the square wooden block to shatter the horizontal plank the monkey is sitting on. The bird falls to explode the first up-and-down TNT box and the debris falls to explode the second which tips the right structure over onto the tree.

This method is preferred to the one I posted above (and the video). Since first bird gets points from the tree and the TNT seems to take out some of the main structure, it is easier to take out the rest with the 2nd bird.

Oh, and it also increased my score by 4k on the first try… I’m sure I can get in the 130’s pretty quickly this way.

Yup… I just got 133310 on my second try. Plus the first birds explosion also destabilized the whole structure, leading me to believe that a one bird solution is possible.

Thanks for the tip @magsy79… Bird 1 into stone block is the way to go.

Of note also, is that the TNT boxes are moving at different speeds, so every few seconds, they synchronize. This is the time to launch bird two, getting TNT detonations nearly simultaneously, to great effect, and lots of damage points.

Thanks for sharing this tip. I barely 3 star most of the time, so I am going to try this way next. Now, maybe I can break 130k!

Good luck. Even with timing your shots, there is still a downside offalling debris stopping the cascade of destruction. Luck plays a large factor in getting things to fall and/or break your way. But it does work, just be prepared to reset the level and start over again, if you don’t get what you want.

Can’t believe I didn’t realize ’til today that these levels even existed! Duh… I got 128,170 with one bird, trying to do it the same way as the video walkthrough. Don’t know what I did “wrong,” but I like it!

By Terri

129,180 with 2 birds! Just got lucky don’t ask me how. I tried this level so many times! I know we are not supposed to post without saying how we got score. But it was just luck. Followed video and the 2nd bird finished off the rest!

This was a cool level. My method was completely different. I actully got it with one bird but my score was only 121110. I did it several more times the same way as I did to get it with one bird and got above average 128780 with 2 birds. You have to wait for the second moving TNT to go down once, and as its on it’s way back up, hit first bird thru empty box just left of middle monkey above first boulder. It slices thru thicker vertical wood block which causes the second boulder to hit second moving TNT now that I waited for it to come up,it is close enough for the last non moving TNT to explode so whole right structure is gone and tumbled off to get palm tree too. Meanwhile with this hit that first boulder rolled backwards and dropped down and took out first monkey, didnt get the first TNT which is probably why to one bird score was so low, however when I used this method and first monkey didnt break by falling backwards boulder, I used second YB to cut thru palm tree and explode TNT and got monkey, etc. If the one bird HAD hit the first TNT the score would have been higher so there’s room for a one birder with very high score.

@lesleyg. Great strat AA I almost got 1b)irde but didn’t get lower left structure ..;( then I messed up shot through palm tree..that’s tricky any precise tips on that? Ty for help;)
Maybe I was blinded by your bling;)

Thanks @kathy ;-) The second shot is a bit tricky through the palm tree, I have an even better second bird shot. Try aiming YB at the tubes below but be sure to hit the one on the bottom facing the sand structure, the one that is only half showing. He will bounce up and take out the sand and ignite tnt and pretty much demolish the whole left side!

Brother! I have 132k after taking out the tree with two birds and all sand blocks gone. What more do I have to do to get beyond 132K? I do not doubt the higher scores, but for the life of me I can’t figure out where there is an additional 7k, the difference between my score on top score. Help!

Timing is everything on this level. You have to clear the left side first using the rebound of the beach inflatable tube. You can accelerate the yellow bird through the tube or not: your choice.

After that you have to wait until the TNT boxes are aligned to launch the second bird that will take care of the rest. Everything must explode!

One last thing: you need at least 30k with the first bird. If not reset the level and try again.

It took me around 200 tries to get to that score. Hope this helps!

As mentioned above, same two bird strat. The second TNT goes up and down twice as fast as the first. The key is timing it so that the second is at the apex when the first explodes. I got lucky that the second stone ball was shot to the left like a cannon to take out the palm tree under the sling for a total of all three palm trees destroyed. That was the difference between my previous high of 128 to 135.

1st shot – Aim lower & shoot pass the palm tree leaves & hit the intersection of vertical & horizontal stone, so that tnt will explode.
2nd shot – Wait for perfect timing where both the left & right lifting tnt moving upward, with left tnt higher than right lift tnt. Shot the bird at left round rock, it should roll & left lift tnt explode, then right round rock will roll & fell on right lift tnt. With luck, the tnt in last tower will explode too.

If there is something on top of the second TNT, wait a bit. It will go off after a few up and down trips. It even cooperates and goes off at the top, setting off the next TNT.

This is what happened a few times for me. I rarely got the right movement of the boulder to detonate the right moving TNT but a few times there was some debris left covering the gap over it & a small wooden plank standing upright on top of the TNT. When the TNT moved to the top the small plank got jostled enough by the debris to set the TNT off & detonate the one on the far right.

Almost had a 1 birder. First bird through palm tree and a lot of debris flew to the right. The far right side was cleared out. All that remained was the center part with the moving monkeys, a bit of the wood on top of the rock balls, the three monkeys in the middle and the far right tnt. My score was 54k and it looked like the center part was wobbling but it stabilized. If everything had been perfect, maybe a score of 145k? I’m happy with my 136k for now, but I might experiment more with this one.

@wanda nearly had the one birder. Straight through the palm tree. Destroyed the left side. Yellow bird shot up detonated far right TNT, right side exploded. Waited, nothing. Fired a completely useless second bird, missed everything. And then the other TNT exploded. Would have been 141k if only……

@hunnybunny, you have to watch the crates of TNT going up and down because if they have just the slightest bit of debris on them they’ll explode within 15 seconds or so, therefore don’t fire another bird until then. Ciao.
