Angry Birds Rio Smugglers Plane Walkthrough Level 27 (12-12)

A simple strategy for Smugglers’ Plane level 12-12 is to go straight ahead. Use the first two Yellow birds into the left side of the first structure, eventually leveling the entire thing. Then use the third Yellow bird into the foot of the far-right structure and destroy it as well.

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.

What am I missing here? Can’t believe 90k is possible without a one-birder but I can’t seem to find it. Any hints?

I got 90600 with two birds. The key here is to get the first structure fall with one bird.
Send the first bird a little bit higher than on video until it breaks the middle box.
This causes the collapse of the first structure. Then the second bird to the second structure.
Gets 83-90k depending on the amont of destruction.

Thanks. I was shooting even slightly higher through the wire box and once it accelerated through to take out the second structure. Looked like a one-birder but ended up with only 83K.

Can’t get anywhere near 90K. 87 was really tough. I still think 90K requires a one-birder.

I’m with you on this…I have managed to get 82k thru my existing high of 87840 with two birds, various shots but mostly first bird to take out first structure, usually works best by hitting thru the yellow bird and of course second to far structure but my point is when I got 87+K and even 85+K there was NOT 5k, 7k or 10k of debris left so I would think it would have to be a one bird method? As u said Doug…87k was really tough!

I will say that I might be on to something with first bird but not sure what to do with second…ok so if you hit the first bird really low to take out the very bottom boxes under the yellow bird and he falls thru…it makes the first structure very unstable and even sways a little…but doesn’t tumble…but again very unstable so if I could find the right spot to aim the second bird to hit the TNT or last structure then that could maybe be the key…or if that first unstable structure DID tumble all the way over to left, the whole thing and all debris would be wiped out…then the second bird could be an easy shot to the TNT/last structure…I’m gonna try another 100 times and see if that works…anyone care to join me? You’ll see what I mean if you take out the very bottom boxes and yellow caged bird falls down…let me know!!!

Hey guess what, I Think I Got It!!! Did it three more times for 87ish..the key is what I said before..u hit the first one low..it can even go thru that first empty steel box the important thing is to take out bottom boxes and yellow bird falls thru like the video but lower cuz you née the two long skinny horiizobtal sticks and the thicker vertical one to stay there as this is what causes the weight to make it sway and want to tip over…haven’t had it tip yet but then I figured where to put second bird…I aimed it way high arch soaring over first structure and as he’s heading down tap him to hit left little wood plank on the last structure or even towards the blue bird there…it’s ok if he nicks the big double bird cage on the very top of middle as he comes down, this will take out last structure and ignite TNT and with the explosion it cause that unstable left structure to fall left and if your lucky it even falls all the way left to take out some of the little stacked boxes in the very start of the level…did it three times in a row but haven’t broke my 87840 yet but got 87+ several times…give it a try..it works!

Just wanted to stress it makes all the difference to have those horizontal wood thin planks and the vertical one left there and sticking out…this is what causes the weight and leans heavy on that side…and then high arch second bird nicking the top double cafe if nessicary and aim for as low as possible just to right of TNT and aim for the very bottom vertical wood plank by bb…just did it again fir 87740…let me know if u did it!!!

na, couldn’t get anywhere close with your method. I went back to my old one of hitting the first bird just at the break in the wood (between vertical and horizontal) and taking out center box. Just got lucky once with a couple more box-breaks.

This level seems deceptive to me- it looks like it should be easy to get a high score, but not for me, at least. I finally got over 80k, thanks for all of the tips, everyone, and especially Angry Advisor for the details! I can see how 90k is possible, but it’s going to take a lot more practice for me:) .

Laurence’s method is a pretty easy way to get 83-85K, but 89-91 takes some real luck! Hang in there! many of these guys spend 500-100 tries on a level before getting a high score.

This level is deceptive in that it looks far easier than it is to get a good score. Oh well, a few more tries, then it’s time to move on.

Here’s my strategy:
1: Skim the first y/b over the steel box, making it go through the bottom left cage and breaking the box behind it. This brings down the first structure without hitting the TNT and fire extinguisher.
2: The second y/b skims the aforementioned TNT and fire extinguisher causing the right structure to fall on the TNT and destroying everything but the non-essential front structures.
This strategy netted me the current #3 spot.

In your 1st shot, did you break the cage (containing a yellow bird) first, or the wooden box behind it first? Thanks.

Rank: Master Slinger with 5645 points
By HKG (@hkg)Score: 93,010

I can now answer that question myself – it’s breaking the cage first and then the box behind it. The right trajectory of the 1st shot is a bit difficult to find, and it is just barely above the corner of the steel box. What rdnzlrips82 described above is accurate, and is a recipe for the top score (I believe the current top score was obtained with the same approach, together with the favourable scenario where the 2nd stack of boxes/cages is collapsed by the fallen boxes from the central structure.

Well…if you want, I could try the trick that works for @sunshine and just start bragging about how awesome my score is. Or, I could say, “Keep at it. Persistance is key. You will get it!” Or, we try something new and you could *poof* me your device and let me see what I can do for you.
But really, the key is trying to get as much stuff from the right structure, to fall on the TnT as possible. But the location of the TnT makes it difficult.

If I might add, if you can get the first targeted tower to the left and destroy the larger of the two small structures, you are looking at an additional 5k. The little white metal boxes are worth 1k a piece, boxes are worth 500. I have about 10 of 100 tries where it breaks the aforementioned structure. Good luck.

@mvnla2 Sorry, I have no new strategy, it would be posted if I did! I used @rdnzirips82′s strategy. Usually the TNT went off when the first tower fell. I got an extra couple of K when it didn’t ignite until the second tower fell on it. I’m afraid this is another level where the L factor is important So let your OCD kick in and fling away!

Avatar of iamMightyRank: Master Slinger with 6660 points
By iamMighty (@iammighty)Score: 92,400

@mvnla2 What you basically want is to use the first bird to break that middle box which to break is a bit hard. You don’t want to hit the steel cages as it slows down the speed of Yellow. Use Yellow’s power when it is about to reach the box. The second bird you want to use is to get the maximum number of debris and to get that you have to keep Yellow as low as possible like diving in. Hope this helps!

This one does require a bit of the luck of the fall. I got my score months ago & haven’t been able to improve.
My biggest stumbling block is the right section of the rightmost structure, you need your 2nd shot to destroy all of the right tower, & I’ve been having trouble finding the exact right spot to do this. I usually end up with debris left over from 1st shot, which makes it tougher.
Doesn’t help that the TNT is the type in a cardboard box, which means it is much weaker than the TNT in a crate.

This is an interesting method. I tried it many times today, and succeded to send the bird this way a few times and get a similar destruction, but the cage with yellow bird did not break! Not once, so this 1-birder did not yet work for me. :-(
