Angry Birds Rio Golden Beachball Walkthrough Level #2

Our strategy for Golden Beachball level 2 is to fire the first Blue bird through the cardboard boxes atop the pyramid, just under the stone blocks. This should clear all cages except for the far-right and possibly far-left cages. Launch the next Blue bird into the center of the level, splitting early if you need to catch the left cage. The score in the video below is 61,470.

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.

70,490 — 1 bird only.

Shot bird same as video only got it to go a bit deeper into the pile while still releasing the stone blocks.
The right fell leftward and the left fell rightward, almost total destruction.

Ok. Time for bed. It’s 330am in DC… Can’t wait to see what ingenious strategies you guys come up with tonight.

By the way, kudos to BL, Fujian, and the gang for such swift upload of the videos!

From the looks of the scores for this level, there are quite a few people who have mastered this level with one bird only. I am curious is there is another method or if the one described by Loox in the above post is the only way to get this with 1 bird only? Any one else have any ideas? I’m thinking that a score of 70k or greater is all about luck and not so much about shooting the 1st bird just right. What does everyone else think? How bout you Bird Leader, Fuji Toast, AMslimfordy?

Well, I finally got lucky with 1 bird taking out the whole pyramid on this level! Here is what I did:

Toward the top of the pyramid, there are 2 boxes stacked directly on top of each other, protecting the larger bird cage near the top. I aimed for the LOWER of those 2 boxes. Just before hitting this lower box, I split the 1st bird so that it destroyed the lower of the 2 boxes AND the 2 boxes directly under it. If you split this correctly, you will avoid the yellow bird in the cage below these boxes, and your blue bird will break through destroying the boxes under the larger cage at the top. This will cause the “bottom to fall out” allowing the larger cage to fall, and bringing with it the two stone/metal blocks on top of it. This causes a chain reaction with those blocks falling to the bottom. The left side of the pyramid fell in first with the right side falling on it 2nd and then all cages were destroyed. I wont lie, there is alot of luck involved in this, and it took me more times than I care to count to get this, but this method did clear all but one cage about 20 times before I got it to work finally. I hope this helps others!!!

My score after one bird was 51350, 2 birds left gave 20k bonus, final score of 71350.

I found aiming for the yellow bird and having the blue go deep is easier. This will cause the stones to tip towards the left, hit the umbrella and bounce the rock back up, if they fall right it will take out all the cages

I had to play this level several times to trying above strats and get an above average score and found that if you aim for the box that looks like it’s turned sideways with a slit on the side, that sits right on top of box with cross and yellow bird cage and split right before impact it will be a one birder…for some reason this projectory causes the concrete blocks to hit umbrellas right so they bounce up and take out that pesky green and yellow bird cage on bottom right that never wants to break.

Despues de muchos intentos, esta tecnica es la que mas me funcionó! condiciona que los azules entren profundo en la pirámide y causen mas destrucción, además de que logra que los bloques de concreto reboten hacia el resto de las jaulas.

A great big THANKS to @lesleyg for helping with the 1-birder on this flinger’s Android phone. I think you & drmac77 were basically saying the same thing, however when my last caged birdie flew the coop it was because one stone had taken the “oh this is exactly what I need” bounce off an umbrella as you described.

With the extremely precise shot it appears each & every one of us needs for a 1-birder, all of the top & left side were destroyed just as a falling stone bounced perfectly off the umbrella, not too high, not too low & flew up & over to land in the middle of a mini pyramid still standing on the right. I could see the stone working its way through the top levels of boxes & was certain it would poof, whoosh, disappear into points oblivion before getting to release the birds in the cage. I had not come this close to a 1-birder before & gasped with disbelief as the stone held its own & didn’t disappear until releasing those birds. I don’t think I’ve ever worked so hard for a 1-birder…all for 71,950.

After finishing the new levels 16-30, I came back yesterday to improve most of my scores on these 1st 15 (so I could move up in overall rank on Golden Beachball), hence my return to this extremely frustrating level. It seems there’s only one way to get a 1-birder here & unlike some levels with a number of ways to get good scores, the difference in rankings here on #2 between a 1-birder & 2-birder is HUGE !!! With previous 2-birder of 64580 my rank on this level was #315 & with these additional 7k + points, I moved up almost 300 spots to #19.

I guess I am now forced to admit I am an Angry Birds Addict (is that ABA in the Glossary?), because despite my disdain for this level, I kept playing to get that 1-birder, but for now I’m going to ignore this addiction & move on to Beachball #3 where I need even more improvement:-(

@justpast40 – I had to chuckle several times reading your post, lol…I knew exactly what you meant with “poofing, whooshing and disappearing” of the blocks! I’m so glad it finally worked for you!
I could picture you sitting on the edge of your seat praying the blocks would make it to the right cage! Tee Hee ;-)))

I am also returning to 1-15 to get some much needed score improvement. I did pretty well on 16-30 but looking back on these first ones will greatly improve my ranking for sure…I have some pretty sad ranks on the first half of this episode. I’m looking forward to it ;-) Good luck to both of us on our AB Addict Quest ;-D

@lesleyg ? YOU ARE MY GOD !!! (at least for 24 hours ;-)). That is only the second level of the episode but it was driving me crazy !!! I was stuck at 63k despite hundred of tries and different ways. Then i follow your strat and… 68K after 4 attempts, then 70k and now 71K+ !! Booooing, bOOOiiiiing, boiiiiiing (marsupilami jumps of joy).

Think i was aiming a bit too high (very unlucky with DrMac77’s strat) and/or activating the Blue bird too late. And i would say after more than 2 years of Angy Birds (Classic, seasons, Star Wars…), that episode of AB Rio is quite tough and often very frustrating, i have never been over 600 rank before !

Ah well, as long as i will have a “valiant knight” to save my day, i will keep on (fighting) playing… ;-)

71440 by accident (well, a “bad” shot for the strat I was trying and after at least 200 tries). Shot just a little lower than the first 1 bird strat taking out the entire left side and much of the right. The stone blocks fell onto the umbrellas and bounced back to take out the remaining 2 birds on the right side. Dumb luck but I’ll happily take it and never revisit this one again!

Sigh. No getting above average with two birds, and haven’t yet managed a 1-birder after an hour of flinging. Wiped the deck clean with two birds for 64,090, 102 below current average score. :/

Any possibility of a video of Justpast40; AngryAdvisor;,or Zeburg’s solutions? I’ve tried till I’m “blue in the face” and still can’t get over 64,030!

Got all w/2 birds, but now (and for the past FIVE minutes), the two remaining beach balls are still bouncing (and one is spinning under an umbrella) and I haven’t gotten my final score yet. I know it’ll be 62,110, but those beach balls keep turning and ever-so-slightly bouncing, so the durn thing won’t end. Anyone else having this issue here?

By M Ward

….and still bouncing (10 more minutes later). I’m letting it run just to see whether they will ever stop and I’ll get my score. Rovio should be alerted to this programming glitch.

Rovio gets conflicting reports. In circumstances like this, you want the level to end even though there are things moving. In other levels, the sensitivity is considered too low and the level times out before all points are possible.

There is another way to score a one birder than described previusly. I have only been successful once in an hour’s worth of play. But I never came close to scoring a one birder with the other ones. Usually with this one I can get everything but 2 cages. With the the other ones, there were usually 4 left.

I fire the blue bird on a high arc aiming for the cage just under the stone block. At the apex, I burst it to send the 3 birds into the cartons just to the left of the stone. All 3 land in about the same place if I shoot it properly. This starts the cascading effect of cages, stone blocks and cartons.

What I like about this way is that the impulse of the birds is directed downwards, not to the right hand side.
