Angry Birds Rio Golden Beachball Walkthrough Level #11

The best strategy for Golden Beachball level 11 is to lob the White bird over the first structure, bombing immediately next to its right leg. The explosion and toppling should clear everything in the left and middle, except for the well-protected cage in the far left. Launch the Black bird into the heart of the right structure to blow it to smithereens. Finish off with a well-placed bomb to break the last cage on the left. The score in the video below is 116,330.

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.

I finally broke 112k. It’s mostly random luck that you break enough stuff doing the same thing repeatedly.

…which I suppose describes a lot of AB levels. :)

126050 just by following the video… If you can get a good egg drop, you can clear most of the middle, leaving the rest farther to fall. 53k after bird 1 is good. Then I got (after several tries) 116k after 2nd bird. 3rd bird takes out last marmoset left on the left.

I suggest restarting after first bird if both the center isnt clear and the leftmost marmoset is too protected to be taken out by bird 3. Should speed things up.

If there isn’t a 1 bird solution with high collateral (which I seriously question) 136k should be either a typo or quite simply fake. But I’d like to give the leader a chance! :)

Ah, got it. I thought that’s what he was referring to, but the top score above was 120 K. That score is coming from Rio Free, which was obviously a bug. I fixed the bug, so the correct highscore is now displayed above. Regarding the leader, I updated this score earlier today and it was changed back, so he’s pretty confident about it. I will try and email and go from there.

I’ve squeezed a 127K out of this level but that was using all 3 birds and done much like the walkthrough.
I think after two birds I had 117K but I still needed to nail that little red guy on the bottom left.
For me that little red has ALWAYS survived the first hit as things are falling away from him to the right.

Would really have to be an amazing one off 2 bird clearance to score 136K, so would also like to know
how this sort of score was achieved for this level?

BTW – I simply got 6K above my previous best of 121K due to the middle sand blocks all going early and allowing the concrete to fall.

Of course I meant “a 2 bird solution with high collateral” as Habanero already said. However I just managed to achieve a pretty lucky 3 birder giving me 131,670 finally! Nothing really new or special here but Habanero is right with the important 1st shot. You should have 60k+ afterwards as well as almost nothing left in the middle. 2nd bird have to land on top of the bottom hollow square of the right structure. 3nd bird needs a little luck to gain more than another 10k if some flying blocks hopefully hits remaining stuff on the ground. That’s why I can’t eliminate the possibility of asteroth777’s score if he had an exceptional lucky 3 birder!

I just had a 2-birder for 125k. I only had mediocre damage after the second bird hit, but then a ball landed just right on top of that protected piggy on the left.

I think a more successful 2-birder explains the top score of 136k

Just followed the walkthrough, I had 61k after the 1st shot & the far right structure hadn’t collapsed at all. 2nd shot I got it through to the ground & it rolled up against the left side of the hollow square on the bottom before detonating. This destroyed the right side for 125k. 3rd shot a simple egg-drop on the remaining cage on the left.
I wish I knew what went differently this time, I had never seen the right side so completely obliterated. I saw a few blocks bounced around by the umbrella & inner tube thingy on the right before disappearing. There were only a handful of blocks & a couple of beachballs left. I took a screenshot which I’ll try to upload in the morning.

I have been experimenting a bit with the best placement for the second bird, but could not come to a solid conclusion. Looks like I will have to spend more time trying next to the block as you described. I have had a few 127k scores, but just can’t seem to get any higher.

@bonneypattycat it seemed like I was getting better destruction from landing the 2nd shot on top of the hollow stone square compared to beside it, so that’s where I was aiming it. I guess it turned into a very lucky miss. Good luck!

two hours over and over using an approach similar to the vid strat. at one point I improved by 100 points then by another 100 points, then I figured out that a very high arc with the first bird drawn down until almost touching the side of the sling gave me better, more accurate release of the egg. after that I experimented with releasing the last bird pointed almost directly at the remaining bird (bottom left red bird in the first cage), and I could frequently get a small burst of additional points if, after the bomb drop, the 3rd bird went up and over slightly with its trajectory slowed by impact, to hit any remaining debris. oh it also took a lot if luck……

Finally the answer to a 3 y/o mystery. I love it when we can figure these out. Further details.:
For me first shot with WB just passing the tip or the right side top of the left tower dropping athe the gap. This will knock the middle cage directly right or obliterate it insyead of popping it up, preventing the right tower (hopefully) from falling in the gap.
Shot two: nearly flat trajectory to land on the bottom of the right tower. I have to believe it was a beach ball that rocketed left and took out the cage on the left. no way to plan for that though. I have seen the beach balls rocket out of the pit after the BB explodes but I guess it was a lucky bounce.
