Angry Birds Rio High Dive Walkthrough Level #9

Our strategy for High Dive Level #9 is to blast the bottom-right cages with a Black bird, then fling Big Brother through the elevated tent. He should bounce through to the boulder beyond, triggering the TNT to destroy the remainder of the level. The score in the video below is 112,550.

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.

@dawn-nelson. The screenshot shows the 2nd bird trajectory (like video). Where did you toss the 1st bird (bomb)?
Thanks!

Great score!

Hi @GypsyBird. Sorry. Must have gotten pics mixed up. The first shot goes high–very close to the far left pole–sticking up. You want theBB to go thru the smallest box–to hit the wood platform below. Then the second shot like video.

Thanks @dawn-nelson! It can happen. Yep, that is what I’ve been working on for 1st bird, but I haven’t had a tremendous score yet. You got a lot of shaking up on the rest of the platform with the 1st shot to get the rest to fall in when tossing Terence over the top to knock down the ball on top of the TNT release switch. Great job! Thanks again for sharing the strat and the 1st bird image.

Thanks for your strat @gypsybird. Awesome!
@AMslimfordy, is there any way you can check my scire on this level? I was playing this level earlier and had reached over 45K, and the level froze, restarted by itself, and my score showed 0! I’ve spent the last 2 hours getting back to 42K, and have taken photos of each new high score achieved, but it sure would be nice to get my previous higher score back. Needless to say, that’s a very nasty glitch, so if any of you get a great score on this level, take a photo :)

@tigers-nana @AMslimfordy : very similar thing just happened to me on iPad iOS7. Was playing the level to improve the score and at the end some (but not all) stuff disappeared. It didn’t freeze but went to score tallying screen where it tallied the score to…zero, lol. This also wiped out my high score of 140,110 and set it to zero as well (screenshot: http://angrybir.de/1o2mb1I).

@tigers-nana, my score remained on the leaderboard, however. I am not sure what the etiquette is in this situation…do I leave my score as is or start over?

Has anyone seen the central structure collapse to left before 1st bird flung? It seems to do a great deal of leaning.
@AMSlimfordy –Had the screen freeze and a lot of stuff disappear before game exited (after 1st bird flung).

Very similar to @Dawn but Bomb Bird goes through the yellow bird’s cage and boxes, detonate when on wood platform. Explosion should push the structures to the left. Had 142k when they also broke through the platform and set off the TNT. Second shot like video.

I had this just happen to me. The bomb bird destroyed enough that the TNT was set off. I had a score of 106K from the first bird. The only cage left to attack was the one on the top right.

@AMslimfordy – a screenshot for this level:

Having experienced this ‘bug’ on level 1, I took a screenshot and then quickly forced the app to close via my device settings, so I’ve no idea if a bug-score is possible on this level or not.
For my current high score, the level ran without any hoodini happenings; one bug score on my device is plenty enough to deal with, without adding to it. ;)

Thanks to @dawn-nelson for the original strat, @dmrsal for the yb cage tip and @bonneypattycat for another great video ;-) I only managed one decent score so far…while I can get the yb cage and break through the wood often…my structure doesn’t often fall to the left like it needs to for the good scores.

@bonnypattycat–yes, all of those games–multiple times. I was was able to take 3 screen shots of game one. On game one it happened at least 10 times. It makes a weird clicking noise–then goes silent–then you see zero or the screen goes black and you go back to signing into Rio.

Whoa, Highscore, and I don’t know exactly how it happened :-(

I used @dawn-nelson ‘s strategy here, the high arc landing on top of the caged yellow bird. Bomb Bird then falls through it on the plank. It then rolls either to the left or the right box, I’m inclined to say that when it rolls to the right, there are more points. This time, it went right.

Red went as it should, however, this time he actually hit at the top of the rope where it’s wrapped around the bollards. For me at least, that never happened before so I went quickly to the left of the screen trying to find the exact aiming point I used. I didn’t pay attention to the level finishing and then the total score screen popped up. Showing alsmost 148K. I knew that was high, but it turned out to be the best score yet (sorry Dawn…).

I really don’t know if hitting the top at the bollards gave the extra points. And, I haven’t managed it again (yet)…

My screen froze on this level and then slowly objects disappeared until the birds did too and then it gave me a score. So these scores gotten with this screen problem are not allowed? Or? I wish I could erase it because if I improve my OLD score, it won’t show up as a new high score because of this frozen-bug-whatever score.

I also posted this on the Bub/Glitch.

I’m on a PC IE running, Windows7 and I’m having problem with Rio 2 High Dive level 9. After the first 2 shots it freezes and an info window pops up asking if I want to wait for it to correct itself or close the program. The wait doesn’t seem to be an option, so I close it, and have to start over again. I don’t lose anything, but I can’t continue either. So far it’s the only level that’s giving me any problems. I wonder if this may be a bug. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Barbbjb

@barbbjb you’re lucky this is the only level giving you freeze problems. I’ve had to shut down Rio using task manager and restarting countless times. Keep hoping for a better score, but cannot get all the way through before it freezes again. And this is the 4th level I’ve had this problem with. 4 out of 8 really isn’t a good percentage. WHEN is Rovio going to send a bug fix for this. As long as all of us PC users had to wait for the update release, you’d think they had the bug fixed before they released it to us. Am getting really frustrated.

Thanks Twylatime for your reply. Actually I believe it happened on 3 other levels as well, but I was able to reboot or in some cases refresh and it would continue through. Sometimes I would just come back later and it would be normal, but I can certainly relate to your frustration. It’s a shame cause I think I enjoyed playing High Tide the most of all the PC games, and I’ve played all of them. BTW this was my first time experiencing any bug/glitch. Finally I agree totally about the perceived delays for PC updates.

first shot high arc into yellow bird on right side
second shot low into cage on top right like video
the timing is important, before you start the second.
must wait after first shot, when the middle tower go to the left, than start the second.
too late, than not enough time to become all points.

Well that was unexpected. Time to expand the kennel and buy some more milk bones.

Screenshot with handy overlaid trajectories.

Shot 1, high arc, land on the yellow birdcage’s top left corner. Bomb breaks through cage & wood box to land on the wood plank. I let him self-detonate. This clears out most of that section, some planks, and starts the left side collapse.
Shot 2 like the video, except I aimed for the green awning’s bottom left corner. Terence bounces through the bird cage, releases the hanging boulder at right, and falls leftward into the pit, taking out all the floating wood and fruit for some big points. Stone releases submerged TNT, and from that point, your fate is in the Luck God’s hands. I don’t think this is a level where pixel-perfect aiming matters. As long as your shots are “close enough”, this score and even higher ones are possible. I had a little bit of debris left

Credit where it’s due: My strategy is just a retelling of three great flingers’ shots. This level gave me problems. I literally never would have gotten above 115k without these guys:

@dawn-nelson ‘s original strategy
@bonneypattycat got my score back video
@dmsral ‘s Bird 1 into yellow birdcage tweak. (Was this #5 or #6? I’m losing count! :) )

Congrats also to @comex666 for his new high score.
