Angry Birds Rio High Dive Walkthrough Level #17

Our strategy for High Dive Level #17 is to have the Yellow bird imitate a dolphin: Fling him nearly straight down into the water, then speed boost during his ascent so he lands in the gap on the far-right side of the level. He will fall onto the trigger, which will destroy the entire right side. Let the Orange bird expand in the middle of the remaining structure to finish. The score in the video below is 155,710.

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.

Never thought about doing that. My 3 star strat was to actually send yellow bird under the water and speed burst him into the 3 dolphins. One dolphin will be destroyed with a sinking block. Second shot was like the video and for the 3rd shot I sent red bird to the right platform. Sometimes the platform will collapse with red and if it does you’ll likely get a 3 star score. That being said the video strat is probably easier but a fun alternative for anyone wishing to try it.

OK, I give up. Anyone over 165K wanna share the secret? Must be a 1-birder…

165k escapes me also. I even had to slow my first bird down to get him to turn at the right level to rocket him over the top. I think the points are in the placement of Mr. Orange. Any help?

167,900. First bird as in video. Orange bird between two submerged columns on left side, inflating near the top of the columns.

Thanks bruce356. You are dead on with placement of Mr. Orange. Keep up the good advice.

Thanks @bruce356 — Correct placement of orange bird got me to 166K.
@MikeinMont — Is that all you did differently to get to 171K? What is your score after 1st shot? I’ve been able to get as high as 79.5K, but never over 80K.
@skowse — Any additional tips?

171k for me too with the @bruce356 orange bird shot.

@mvnla2 @skowse. No additional tips. My first shots have always been at or near 78-79k. I didn’t even get the placement suggested by bruce356 of “between” two submerged columns. I just laid it up next to left column and blasted.

Thanks, @bruce356! This Orange bird tip gave me a few extra thousand points I wouldn’t have gotten otherwise; I think I’m even above average on this level. I’m sure I could improve my score further; left one of the rock columns standing so there’s definitely more points to go after.

This level was driving me crazy until I finally gave in and checked the walkthrough. I knew there had to be a secret way to get into that right water column, but I just couldn’t figure it out. Seems so obvious as soon as you see it! And once you get the hang of it, it’s really fun and satisfying to loft yellow bird all the way up and over into that water column.

I love this new episode! Rio has always been one of my favorite games, I think because of the sound the captured birds make (“lucky bird”!) and the concept of the angry birds releasing other birds. Plus, I love episodes with water in them; Atlantis completely stole my heart.

This episode seemed relatively easy to me, because I was able to 3* almost all the levels without resorting to the walkthroughs. Until I entered my scores on the leaderboard, and discovered I didn’t even come close to the average score on most levels! Well, that’s OK…I can enjoy lots more time with this release, and I know my generous fellow flingers have left lots of tips here for me to explore.

And then when the PC version comes out, I can start all over again on a new device!

Thanks again, @bruce356, and thanks to everyone who contributed tips on the other walkthroughs…I’ll be checking them out soon. Meanwhile, happy flinging!

I totally agree with you, @junkenmetel this is a great episodes with a lot of possibilities and cute prisoner birds. Only downside is all that water splashing makes for a few more potty breaks. :)

PC version has been out awhile, I think. I hope so, since that’s what I’ve been playing all this time. :)

Woo Hoo !!! Just managed an 11k improvement for TopScore of 176540 on Android phone with a 2-birder. Of course I don’t expect this to last as there are so many other better flingers.

The 1st shot was like video & nothing spectacular; I think the score was around 77k-78k. The 2nd shot was the lollapalooza. As bruce356 wrote, getting the OB between the columns is/was the key. Somehow when I threw the OB, it not only landed between the 2 columns, but broke thru the horizontal wooden board & OB slid down between both columns, reaching all the way to the bottom before expanding. I was stunned as I looked to the points & saw over 144k, meaning with the 3 bonus birds I would score over 174k. I looked back to my iPad to check the current TopScore & was a little let down to see it was almost 175k. That let down lasted a millisecond because as I looked back at my phone screen it showed this pic: http://angrybir.de/1o7j6xm & thankfully nothing malfunctioned as the level closed & recorded the score.

Getting the 2nd shot with OB ‘breaking thru’ the planks & getting between the columns is what helped me; it’s NOT consistent with my (non) skills :-) THX! … Rogue

Also, it helped when I did the shot w OB immediately after 1st shot — the *interaction* seemed to help w misc destruction; but, w the PC, the screen wants to ‘move’ – just a little – compounding novice (moi) difficulty. … Rogue

Best I can tell, the ‘all the way to the bottom’ may be a helpful key; tho, occasionally – after just breaking thru the plank – OB explosion/inflate sends everything all thru the air, nicely. AND, IF done while the 1st bird destruction is still in process, seems to add, also. Fun stuff! :-) … Rogue

The very high scores are with the sweet spot with the second bird. First bird can give scores up top almost 82K (depending on how much debris is left over). But there is a place to inflate the second bird making the left structure fly high (as in level 2), rather than just pushing it up and sidewards. Falling debris on top of eachother racks up more points and some may fall on the leftovers on the right side. The spot is somewhere around the little vase, but I’m still pinpointing it. I know it’s there because I hit it once and it gave me 172K+

@tinus, I’m really glad with your comments. Again super strat. Thanks.

I cannot get the yellow bird to get up and over the tunnel. When I fire him, and set off his speed setting, he either hits the underside of the floating structures, or if if DOES rise out of the water, it doesn’t get all the way up to the tunnel – usually crashing into part of the right-sided floating structure.

I cannot get the angle, nor the moment to trigger speeding, right.

Kitty I hv the same problem…..YB has never gone over the top into chute. It has come up inside the far right gap but that is it. Kitty and I need HELP!!!!

@grits1 and Kitty — use the first shown in the video. I think the key is not to accelerate until YB is almost to the surface of the water. Good luck!

@grits1 Three steps

1. Click from below/in front of the sling so that the hand is a bit more out of your way and you can see (somewhat) what you’re doing while you aim.

2. Move Chuck so his beak is slightly up and to the left of the left fork of the sling. This should get you the correct power.

3. Now look at that huge first column that goes from the top of the screen to the ocean floor. See the darker rectangular piece underwater that the two stone columns rests on.

You want to pass through the bottom of that gap about 1/4 from the bottom. Once you start floating back up, if your trajectory is right, you can trigger Chuck anytime you want.

Even with the careful aiming, it’s still a hard shot, but this helps me get it about half the time.

Ugh, I hate this level! Took me all day to break 170k. My hand is aching from the awkward position to launch the first, vexing, bird!

Aaaanyway. With the second bird, I tried breaking through the horizontal wood to drop between the two stone pillars, but didn’t have any luck. Finally, although I think it does not have the same point potential, I went directly for the left pillar. In pretty short order, I finally got a score I can live with, for now.

I don’t know about anyone else but when I’m playing these levels, the game just goes off and have to wait for it to download again??

1st bird like video. Steep dive, accelerating coming up, and should go to far right, tumbling down the channel, setting off the TNT. Orange Bird through the supports of the lower left structure
