Has anyone else seen the barrels explode? I’ve been trying to replicate, now starting to wonder if it’s unstable.

dear barrels are not exploding, they just get broken. I it did many times.

Yes, me, too – trying to get them to explode again.

@SilverBird — Did you get this again? If the barrels under the right platform explode before you fling a bird, this would be classified as a self-destroying level. Please report any additional data in the forum on self-destroying levels. Please include platform you play on (self-destruction in Rio so far only reported on Android), points before bird flung, time after restart.
If you just comment here, I am likely to miss your comment, unless you @mention me.

You seem to get a higher score if YB cuts the rope holding the TNT down as high as possible, and if the bomb bird hits the stone pillar as low as possible. Detonate near bottom of pillar.

@MVNLA2, thanks for the bottom of the pillar tip!

The trick here is to have Yellow cute the rope so that when the TNT explodes, the whole structure flies up in the air taking a lot above the water out too. Score should be between 70k and 80k. It’s not necessary to cut exactly at the bottom, the fly to the sky explosion is all that matters. This gives the best scores with the underwater structure (rather than the structure just falling downwards to the right). Bomb Bird at the bottom of the pillar, although I’m pretty sure there’s a sweet spot just before the large lower horizontal plank of the right structure

And I believe the fly to the sky explosion is achieved if you send YB quickly. On my Mac it seems if you wait more than a second or so to fire YB the structure will not blow sky high.

There IS a sweet spot for the bomb bird but I haven’t spotted it yet. One time it looked like both barrels blasted, two or three other times a section of the wall exploded.
What makes the first bird score 70+? I looked at length of cord, TNT touching the weeds on the right, and presence of a fish – don’t think any of these are the factor.

I think the sweet spot is the stone where the grass is growing out on the left side of the pillar. If you bomb just before, the whole structure will explode (same “indicator” for sweet spots on level 2 and 3 too).

And now there’s another sweet spot for bird one, though I’m embarrassed I didn’t witness it – it took out the whole right tower, leaving only a fragment of the left one … with one cage left. 117k, and so close to a one birder!
If someone can give me some guidance, @bernersenn or @MVNLA2, I’ll upload a screenshot.

It seems that we’re all having our success using slightly different aiming techniques.

I just managed 161030 on Android phone with my 1st shot not to the top or bottom of the detonator cord, but approx 1/2 way up, after initiating my speed boost a little more than 1/2 way there. Rather than an arced or curved shot, I’d shot in a way that after tapping for speed boost, YB shot straight ahead.

By now you realize that some of these explosions blow “everything” sky high & while my best score after 1st shot had been over 86k, this time it was only 73k. With the TNT released & rising, the lower TNT exploded just as the bottom of the TNT met the right corner of the shelf on which the 2 columns on the left sit as the explosion also set off the top TNT to blow the roof up & out. If when the TNT explodes the structure folds down into itself, I’ve been restarting.

For the 2nd shot, I aimed to the bottom of the pillar, but I was high & I estimate it hit between the 3rd & 4th stones (if you look closely, the 3rd stone from the bottom is darker, like the one on the bottom). I didn’t immediately detonate & the bomb may have moved a tad up the column before I detonated, but when I detonated, I saw an explosion similar to the 1st in that debris flew up & outwards. I’m pretty sure this was the 1st time I’d seen damage like this on my 2nd shot.

I see you found the sweet spot, too, @justpast40. Yay!
Now, on my iPad 2 I have yet to score as high after the IOS upgrade as I did before, but maybe it’s just me.

I can’t see any consistency with the first bird, I’ve had good results from various angles and strike points ;?

The second bird, like others above, I aimed low on the pillar

@bonneypattycat – congratulations on your great score and thank you for sharing your video. I am a visual person, so it really helped. I am still looking for that sweet spot on the second shot, but your video has given me hope.

I’m wondering if the explosion on the first shot, throwing everyting in the air is an ipad or android thing. I’ve shot, reset, shot, reset, cutting the chain holding the TNT at every possible point and cannot get that “throw everything into the sky” explosion. Has anyone on PC gotten this result? Am moving on. Getting nothing but frustrated with trying to get up to average.

@twylatime I was going to post the same, I have played this level for 4 hours and not a single big explosion, while on my android I’m getting it at least one out of four tries. Also this episode crashes more often on my PC. Bad Rovio!

Thanks @crivit. I was beginning to feel like a piggie in disguise, the only one who didn’t get the joke. Is it just me, or is Rovio getting sloppy? Gotta be me, cause Rovio Rocks! Lately I haven’t even been able to get throough one level without freeze.Thank goodness for task manager, or I’d be in a world of hurt

@twylatime Dunno about the possibility of this shot on PC, but it wouldn’t surprise me. I’ve found several shots in Space and Rio that I’ve proved through intensive testing cannot be done on PC.

For those who can get it to work, save some sanity trying to aim. The ‘fling in the air’ result on the first shot is completely random. It doesn’t matter where you cut the rope. All that matters is where the TNT chooses to blow, and there are only two spots where it does:

Low: (The middle of the stacked TNT barrels is level with the stone plank just above it) means everything falls into the water.

Lower: (Middle of the stacked TNT barrels is 1/4 inch below the stone plank) means you get the debris flying into orbit.

It’s a really subtle difference.

Shot 2, aim for middle of pillar, detonate before hitting. Pillar gets pulled towards you then flung skyward.

I think the big explosion is gone, on an iPad 2, anyway. It used to happen at least one in four, but now none in about 5 minutes. I couldn’t get level one to explode either, but that was always more difficult.

I agree with @silverbird, as of May 2014, I have been flinging for days now trying to get that first major “fly in air” explosion on left tower. Hundreds if not thousand if flings without one “big one” with first bird on left tower.
I think I am a good enough player (usually score in top 100.. Or sometimes the top 50), I can usual get it from comments, videos, etc within my first dozen tries. But no this one!

I tried to hit that fuse (or rope) every which way, high, low, middle, curved, down then straight hit, spinning hit, you name it….. I tried it, many times over! I am very able to use my three P’s to keep trying until in top 100. I think the big left tower “flying in air” explosion is gone, must have changed on one of the updates?!?!?!?!?

Sooooo, I tried different ways including sending Chuck straight into the wood above water on left tower, then bomb reminder to finish off the second section go the left tower and set off TNT, with hopes of flying debris to damage far right tower… (Never got this to happen), so I had the use third bird to take down the far right tower. Highest score with this strat for me was around mid 140′s, if lucky.

Sooo, Back to standard strat of Chuck diving down in water, hitting fuse.

For the fIrst bird you need to get at least 45k – but really over 50k (no more 80k’s with high flying explosion anymore) to even have a chance to total above 150k. Then try to get the big flying explosion with far right tower with bomb bird.

I was able to get my current score above 150k. It was a fluke where first bird rolled over on end of longer rope holding it down for a second, that caused a lower TNT explosion for more damage (still not the “flying in air” big bang, just more damage), and then I hit the right tower with second bomb bird just right for larger flying in air explosion.

I did get several all over 150k with regular left tower destruction, just had to have score over 50k after first bird combined with a good right tower hit…….

I might be all wrong and missed the boat here? I will come back and try for first bird- left tower big explosion again if someone else is able to do it.

I use the iPad2 platform. If after this date, if someone is able to get the left tower big “flying in air” explosion with first bird on iPad, please post and also how did you get this? I will come back and try again if still possible!

Happy flinging.
PS…. I think I was having the same problem with level 1 of this chapter…..not getting same big results as prior posters. Maybe programming change with an update?

I’m having exactly the same experience. After countless attempts there seems to be no way to get the big scores anymore with the first bird. Totals are mostly in the mid 140′s, and just once in all this time I managed a little over 150k. If you are right, this would mean that the average is based on an earlier release and no longer attainable. Shame, as I’m aiming for above average on all levels. If anyone can still manage an above average score, please post, otherwise it’s a waste of time even trying. Tx!!
