Angry Birds Rio High Dive Walkthrough Level #3

Our strategy for High Dive Level #3 is to fling the Yellow bird below the first structure, speeding for the wooden planks on the far right side of the level. The switch should drop stones onto the middle structure, leaving the Black bird free to release the remaining dolphins. The score in the video below is 124,210.

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.

Is everyone else getting lucky with 1-birders here? I can’t get the boulders to break down the left structure. I assume that’s what is skewing the average since no alternate strategies are posted. Crossing fingers seems to be the secret for this level. Xxxxxxxxxxxxx (that’s everything.)

Im pretty sure @maiasatara the average and high scores can be attributed to the self exploding fish on every so often restarts..after the stupid power up monkey pops up offering his goods!! You either get 70 extra points or 1or 2 self exploding fish. @mvnla2 any reports of this yet ?

Hah! @Kathy, After I commented above, I went back to fling some more, and after a few resets, it happened! But it wasn’t from the monkey p/u, just a normal reset. I wasn’t paying much attention, when I heard a little *pop* and looked down to see one of the dolphins gone, with a score of 7840 without flinging Chuck!

@kathy, I don’t know what they mean with exploding fish. I played like video, first bird gave almost 90k. Then bomb bird to left juat under the half on the structure. Manually detonated and everything was bursting, like in level 2. So keep trying, tou will get it. As soon as I am able took a picture with position of the exploding bombbird, I will post it here.

Hi @mvnla2 – sorry so late but I didn’t know – my notification count was off. Now I want to ask you, nice 154! For the record, the horizontal metal under the boulders – this fell and hit the two boxes against the wall (and a few other things on the way down.) Then I aim bomb more to middle of left structure and got more destruction than video. As for self-exploding fish??? I ain’t seen none a’ THAT! Have to go back and read through a few comments.

(Shows up as a bunch of **** with the right number of characters,) BUT, when I tried to retype it, it tells me I’m remembering incorrectly. Cut to AIM only fixes AIM and me terrified to try resetting. (Divorce, name change, who knows what security questions , blah blah blah.) Laptop cord needs replacing.

hi guys, sorry for the late reply, I’ve hardly played sofar, I’ve only done the first 4 levels.

I cannot give a detailed strategy, I got my score on the 2nd try, sometimes we all need some luck. In short key is the second shot, I aimed for the vertical wooden piece just sticking out of the water and detonated before impact, and it just lifted and exploded the entire structure. I think it was quite close to the horizontal stone floor and the explosion lifted that and flung it away

The first shot’s easy as pie if you just fling yellow down the middle, no need to get close to the submerged stuff. Once he reaches the bottom of his arc, trigger, and he’ll float over to the TNT. WAY easier than trying to skirt the submerged structure.

I use pretty much the same strategy as show in the video. It is possible to get around 85k after the yellow bird (I gotta >90k before). Just have to keep trying. For the bb, I aim it at a bit higher than shown in the video (near the middle horizontal plank). If lucky, detonating before it touches the plank (with bb just to the left of the plank) will blow the whole superstructure. Can comfortably get >140k if either works. If both works, then bam you get >150k.

Love it. The spot to aim for to get big damage with bb seems to be just fractionally below the horizontal plank. And, as you say, detonate before impact.

As in level 1, a direct hit with Yellow Bird (without bounching the walls) seems to give higher scores. A direct hit exactly in the middle of the planks seems the best.

As in level 2, there’s a sweet spot for the explosion, shooting everything into the sky. Explode just in front of the point where the bottom of the vertical wooden plank crosses with the horizontal stone plank. As in level 2, it’s a tricky shot.

I’m now slowly making my way through the levels after doing a quick 3* run, and my best guess for now is that this applies to all levels. No bounching gives better scores and there’s a sweet spot for every explosion making things fly

Thanks to all for the comments! @Tinus — By any chance do you have a screenshot of the 1st shot where YB does not hit the wall?
@SweetP, @rocklands, @danielnky, @pauliboy — Finally got a good first shot and the explosion.
BTW — This is one of the levels where, if the yellow canopy is not destroyed immediately with second shot, and gets submerged in water, it can be destroyed if a fish hits it. I think the little yellow / gold fish may be the best chance for this to happen, but not sure.

You are so very correct @tinus that the YB directly to wood without bouncing off the wall appears to be the key to a decent start. I’ve had as high as 90k, but apparently @bonneypattycat has seen 97k.

As far as the 2nd shot, when launching in the way that “blows the roof off,” & by that I mean sending debris literally flying up as I believe several others mentioned, it’s something we’ll see in many other levels as I recall seeing it a number of times when flinging to help determine 3* minimums. So far, I scored at least 45k with this shot & I’m 9k behind first place, so it can be quite valuable.

Now I play on an Android phone & have “old” eyes (I’m 55), but to me it looked like this happened when as aiming towards the point at which the base of the vertical wood meets the horizontal stone, the bomb bird was on a slight upward trajectory when detonated before it hits structure. When looking closely, the left end of the horizontal stone is slanted or angled. I believe we’re seeing this explosive force when the bomb is detonated in such a way & at just the correct point where the force of the detonation is just below this angled stone forcing everything up & out.. Obviously I may be wrong & better players may discover the actual key to this if I’m wrong, but for now it’s worth speculating.

@justpast40 @tinus I got 97k with a flukey yellow bird that bounced off the far wall, much like many previous attempts, but when the plank started to slide to the left, it sucked half of the stone underneath along with it. Many attempts later, have not seen that happen again.

Little time for flinging lately, hope to be back in full fling mode later in the week.

For shot 2, you can be pretty far (like 1/2 to 1 inch) to the left of the middle pebbly-stone plank and detonate and it’ll blast the structure like in level 2. The key seems to be detonating when you are perfectly level with it.

Profile photo of KelaniRank: Master Slinger with 5690 points
By Kelani (@kelani)Score: 153,800

A clarification on shot 2 it works BETTER if you are about 1/2 inch away from the plank when you detonate. In the right spot, the plank is pulled toward you violently, then the rest of the structure blows skyward.

There is a little bit of a window for a successful shot, vertically, but horizontally, not so much. Try to detonate when level with the plank, but as a rule of thumb: If it doesn’t work, you are detonating too close.

I can regularly get scores 90K to 95K+ with Chuck by sending him very close to “hook” around the left corner of the penguin structure…tapping him as he’s making the turn. Here’s a screenshot of the trajectory:

http://www.angrybirdsnest.com/members/lesleyg/album/picture/10951/

Sometimes it’s a direct hit to the tnt string but very often he bounces off one of the walls for scores over 90K. You really need to get the two boxes in the middle when the center tnt explodes.

I’m up to 154460 with a 93250 1st bird score. I’ve only managed one good explosion with BB. Can’t seem to find the sweet spot…if it still exists…
