Angry Birds Rio Golden Beachball Walkthrough Level #5

Golden Beachball level 5 is a bit challenging. Our strategy is to the bottom of the bottom-left structure. Fire the White bird into the newly-created gap, bombing the marmoset at the bottom and ricocheting the bird through the second set of sand blocks. Lob the Yellow bird through the left sand block supporting the last suspended marmoset and onward into the right structure, causing the whole thing to topple. The score in the video below is 140,470.

I started doing it like the walthrough, but got 132,310 using an alternate method. My way might be inferior. First I sent the yellow bird across the very top, breaking that board and killing the top monkey and the one below it. You need a clean platform in the very center of the structure. Drop a white egg onto it. If done right, you can take out all monkeys except the left 2, which you get with your next bird as in the video.

I have never struggled so much to get three stars in any level but this one. And the way I did it was to use your method, so thank you.

By Squirrel61

This level is one of the hardest ever to get three stars. I tried the video method for hours but never got more than 125.something. Finally, using your method, I got 128.350 so I got rid of that pesky two-star score.

By Noblinky

OMG! Thank you so much for this method. I got 3 stars first time I tried it your way vs. hours and hours the other way! … I just wish I saw your post sooner =)

Your way seems to work the easiest for me! BUT… I still can’t manage enough destruction to get those 3 stars!!! All my wooden structures seems to be in cahoots & just lean on each other instead of fall! Aaarrrggghhh!!! Now that I’ve had my gripe session, I’ll go back and, hopefully, eat my words immediately! :-)

AAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH!!!!! This level is making me lose sleep!!! When your 22 year-old son says to you: “Mom, get a grip!”, you know you’ve become the president if “Crazy Town!” Cannot 3-star this to save my life, let alone mind! Very frustrating! However, I will not “power up!” (even though its crossed my mind a few times at 3:00AM! :-)

Hard level… But not impossibly so. Found it challenging to kill all the monkeys, much less 3 star it.
141380 using same method as video… One bird left over. Took about an hour.
So don’t give up.

By Camilla

Well well well.. when I started this episode, level 5 was the only one i was stuck at for a bit to even get 1 star. So no surprise this is the last level I have to 3 star! currently stuck at 126450 points!!! I wont give up ;)

By Rob

Finally- 128,590! Hardest level for me. It took less time to get three stars in the other 14 levels combined than it took me to get 3 stars on this level alone. Even though I got all the marmosets many times over, I just could not do enough damage to break 127,000. Roughly followed as shown in video to get the three star score. Keep trying!

Per the video with one bird left. Aimed the first bird slightly below the first horizontal wood block, you have to tap the screen immediately after you launch the bird in order for it to reach the second square wood block on the beach. With ninety percent of the first structure gone, drop the egg bomb directly over the marmoset that is still on the ground, tap the screen so that the chicken shoots up and hit the sand blocks on the bottom of the upper middle structure. This should destroy almost all of second and third structure. Launch the third bird as in the video.

Stuck at 126130! I have to set time limits on myself so I don’t sit too long at this! I have 3 stars everywhere but here.. thinking this level is going to do me in!

Been stuck at 126,270 for days on this level, which is one of the hardest in Angry Birds Rio. Then I tried sweeping the top marmosets with first bird, leaving a chimney for sending the white “bird grenade” down. This knocked out all but short front structure at far left, and its two marmosets. The trick is to knock down the entire tower and push your score above 117,000, leaving one 10000 point bonus bird. Good luck. Aloha.

AWESOME!!! Got mine pretty much like video…Tip: when you hit the first bird try and aim for that first low horizontal wood plank where it has a break as this will ensure almost total collapse of first structure for more points. wb as close and tight above bottom monkey as possible for max destruction. GL…it’s a hard one for sure!

Finally managed to improve above average on this one, following the video and I noticed something. When flinging the white bird in,I aimed a bit higher so it went in right under the sand blocks you want to take out. With the shallower angle of the ricochet it took out those blocks but also rolled further right to take out the sand blocks on the other side of the marmoset, causing more damage and making the third shot more effective. I was able to repeat this several times, although I frequently messed up the next shot, but was able to up my score by 7k, using 3 birds.

Like video; got 143580! For first bird, pull back exactly horizontally (minimum width on sling); raise the bird 3 or 4 pixels above horizontal (i.e. the bird is aimed slightly down). By pixel, I mean that from the horizontal position, you can see a step in the sling. Click to activate almost immediately. The bird needs to hit at about the lowest horizontal plank, and leave a nice opening as in the video. Good luck!

Who was the sadist that picked this level for today’s challenge? ;) I got so tired of listening to those marmosets screeching at me that I muted the game! Aargh! That first shot looks so easy in the video but I could only hit it maybe once in 15-20 attempts. Oddly, the white bird, when I got a chance to use it, almost always was effective. Then the third, yellow bird couldn’t remember how to break up wood and take out marmosets at the same time. After a million attempts, finally got 145k with 3 birds using the video strat. Painful, but I am happy to have a higher score.

@cc-jolly Congrats on high score! We could really use some help from you (details on how you got it).
There are 3 possibilities I can think of:
1) You figured out a better strat than the rest of us have been using, in which case I’m really hoping you’ll share.
2) You made a type when you entered the score, a common mistake, but only noticed when the top score.
3) You posted score for wrong episode. I did that once, getting a top score — My elation was replaced by embarrassment when someone questioned it.

I played the Level GB 5 in the morning several times. I used 2 Birds. The first yellow Bird i shot in the nearest woods (under side) and with white Second Bird i smashed the rest. The woods fall lucky and not much over plus 20k over for rest two birds. I take always the same strategy but it played about One hour this Level since Blocks fall sooooo nice.

Thanks (I think). It sounds like you really used the same strategy as the video. Is that correct? Any subtle differences, or details? I was really hoping it was something new and different. I agree with HallieGinSB — I don’t think I’m going to try again, certainly not another hour or two on the same strat.

not that I know exactly what @cc-jolly did on this level @mvnla2 but I have had the WB do some serious damage and believe that the same under approach as video is possible to 2 bird. I just haven’t mastered the first shot well enough yet to give myself an open shot. What HAS happened is that the WB basically rocket scoots all through that middle sand block lined middle section taking them all out. I have had that top bird and the right one left on all occasions. Timed right I suppsose there is a way for that top right marmoset to fall. Heckat this point I’d be happy with average!

I have another strategy for this that gave me 151 000 points. It starts off as the strategy mentioned above where you take out the first wooden structure with the yellow bird. But instead of throwing the white bird into the hole left by the structure you throw it right down in the ground – aim slightly right of the second rock in the sand. Just before the bird hits the ground you release the egg. The bird will then ricochet and take out all the supporting wood for the upper structures and the whole place will come tumbling down. It takes perfect timing, but if you do it right it will go all the way through to to end and knock the end structure over as well. The remaining monkeys and structures you can take out with the next bird.

Thank you @jarva, this worked great! I increased my by over 8k. First shot like the video. Second shot aim at a 45 degree angle DOWNWARD. About halfway between the ocean-beach line and the bottom line on which the platform rests, release the egg. I have seen the white bird fly to the right taking out all the mid-level sand blocks and crash into the back tower taking out a good chunk of that too. Next yellow bird cleans up top marmoset and 10k bonus. Woohoo!

I too thank you @jarva for your method. I tried the video and the skim the top 2 monkeys/egg down the chimney methods many many many times but couldn’t beat the average score. It was your method that got me 135,000. (I played this one on the PC.) As others have said, this is a real stinker so despite my score not being all that fantastic, I shall take it and gladly walk away from this one.

141720. I’m so sorry I can’t remember which hint I used. I think it was the video. Three birds, everything fell like it was supposed to, which was amazing to watch. This after a couple days of this being my only one star. I was almost ready to ask if someone had yet another way of getting three stars. Very frustrating but it can be done. Good luck!!!!

By quilly

Here’s a tip I found if you are using the alternate method described above. Like many I was frustrated that I was always a few thousand points short of three star. Then as I looked I realized the far right tower was always still standing…so I used the third bird to take out tbe tower and the fourth to take out the two monkeys left on on the far left. Three star!

In case there are other PC players out there having as hard a time as I had with this Hades induced level, here’s what finally did it for me, not a great score, but satisfactory enough to get the heck out of here.

First bird to top of first vertical shaft to clear the way for the chicken’s egg.

Second bird into and lays egg down to bottom of shaft and 1 out of 10 or so shots it’ll clear everything except far right tower.

Third bird as on video or as needed.

1 bonus bird left.
***There’s a strat somewhere above that is similar, except that one uses the far right vertical shaft.***

Found other srats too difficult so tried something else.

1. Shoot the moon’ with the first YB by pulling slingshot down till he almost touches the frame. Activate on the way down so he slices through the grass at the far right of horizontal plank with the leftmost hanging monkey. This should clear a gap to the right of the first structure, and take out a few monkeys too.

2. Now lob WB to just clear the grass, and drop egg in the middle of the gap. This should take out the 2 monkeys in the left structure, and ricochet to take out the top of the right structure, and leave just 3 or 4 monkeys on the right.

3. High lob the next YB and activate to clip the sand block at the top, then down to collapse the rightmost tower.

Takes a few attempts to get the angles right, but I was able to get several 3 star scores and 2 above average in less than an hour. So if you’re stuck, might be worth a try.
