I received 3 stars with a score of 107,310… I’m sure you have heard this before. Thanks for the help along the way!

Why do people bother posting just a score? So what? I can see scores on the leader boards. Im pretty sure the purpose is to discuss alternate methods that are more simple or ways to achieve higher score than what is shown in the walkthrough video. Thanks to all who use this for more than just a brag board. Surprised I don’t see more posts like “Firsties!”

To @surfcow, the reason they keep doing it is simple, they’ve not reached that score, they’re just posting it here to irritate the rest of us, I personally ignore those preposterous claims and keep doing my thing.

I aim at the left bottom block of the last structure but destroying at the same time a little of wood before so things collapse well (the horizontal and vertical piece of the bottom structure are what holds everything). Not an easy shot, tool me a while.

Same here.. I shoot through the largest cage, through the two small boards with the cardboard box in the middle to finally destroy this lower left block malin refers to. So far I’ve got 113k, but 120k+ seems reachable. You do need some luck, though!

Great description @nash. I followed this for over 112000 on iPad but it took 2 birds :-( …. (I’d had just under 108,000 on Android phone but so long ago I don’t remember how).

Before trying your description, I’d tried a “shoot the moon” shot… Shot straight up so that when it came down it was between the 2 tallest towers trying (at least) to take out the left most hollow block of the right tower. I’d managed an above average 2-birder this way, but so far the way @eweber & you posted has worked the best….still trying for the 120s

Right. All we are saying is the score in our walkthrough video ends up being 108,650. A lot of users have found it helpful in the past. For example, if our video yields a higher score than they had, it’s probably worth watching to improve your score.

I didn’t realize that “chat” rooms, if you will, had grammer police. I used to post comments as if talking to someone in person. Maybe a better description would be like when placing an ad.

This is manu malin’s method described above. The first yellow bird can slice through and break the bottom left wooden block of the right structure. The idea is to only break the left most hallow block so that the entire right structure collapses to the left, taking everything with it.

Just 10 points away from 3 stars. My method: Hit the metal on top of the red bird. This should take out the right side of the level. Use the remaining birds to clean up the left side.

The same, with 2 birds, 114360 points. Because almost everything was destroyed i think 1 bird wonder-shot maybe reach 125k points. First 2 scores on table, 133k&129k looks unreal. Should be verified.

I’ve taken a different approach and it seems to work well, with just 2 Birds.
1) Launch first Yellow Bird at an almost horizontal line with a smidge of a rear downwards incline at plank sticking out of first tower, it’ll take out the bottom wood block and plank support as well as the small and medium cages.
2) Launch second Yellow Bird at a medium arc so that it hits the vertical piece of wood behind the powder box, it will go through and knock out the left wooden block of the far tower bringing everything down with it.

Congrats to all those in the top 50! The reduced power and speed of the YB in Rio is manifestly displayed equisitely on this level. 133k for the top score seems supernatural but Iammighty sitting 3k behind makes it even more so. Tucking my tail on this one cause I can barely get just under 110k and that is a struggle. Hats off to those who have zeroed in on this level!

@swelld I got my score using manu’s strat, through the large birdcage & the cardboard box to the base of the right tower. Try aiming on the high side, I found that at the very least you have to crack the horizontal wood resting on top of the box, if it breaks even better. This slows the yellow bird down a bit & makes it harder for him to break last piece of wood on the right tower, but it can happen. Everything falls much more easily when this happens. When I say “easily” I of course mean AB style easily, took a couple of hundred tries.
Do you find yb less effective in Rio? I’d never really noticed.

@karen68 I actually had the exact same method as @eweber described for the first shot. In the more than a year ago since I played this level, I had never gotten a one birder this way, it always took two. Yes I have an can vary the angle of attack of the YB using the color change of the lightbulb shadow in the background. Putting the flat bottom of the YB right on the line of light/dark gives the best down angle but the towers collapse more straight down. A flatter approach gets more of the leftward lean and fall. I haven’t had the luck of finding the sweet spot in between and probably am going to settle with my year old 112k as I haven’t even come close to repeating that today.
And I feel that Rio messes with the physics of the birds but then again there has always been odd change of some variety in all versions of AB. It is more pronounced since I was just replaying an AB level using the YB a lot.

Nice shooting @karen88. I’ve had the right tower fall & stall at angles unknown to man (or physics). But everything just stayed there all wonky & wacky. I can’t get over 107. Maybe I should give this up & go improve scores at all the levels I’ve yet to add to the Leaderboard. I remember the good old days when I was just soooo happy to get 3* and move on. I didn’t know anything about Leaderboards or rankings or Challenges. Ah well, those days are gone. I’m goona give this another try.

If you aim just under the “blue window” in the background and tap YB just as he passes the first dark cage “stuff” in the backgound….you can hit the empty wooden box exactly where it needs to be hit to get a one birdie. GL ;-)

Alternate strategy for a one birder……Do what I think has been called a power shot. (activate the bird immediately) The aim is as straight up as you can get it wile keeping full power to the shot. You need to just clip the corner of the top box on the left section, and then take out the bottom hollow block on the right section. It’s not as hard as it sounds: much easier than the nanu method. But…..I haven’t been able to get a good score. My best score was made with two birds.
