Angry Birds Rio Smugglers Plane Walkthrough Level 28 (12-13)

Smugglers’ Plane level 12-13 is very challenging. One strategy is to launch Blu straight ahead at the first vertical stone beam. Ideal he’ll flail enough to knock the entire tower down and to the right, triggering the gas cans then causing a chain reaction popping most of the cages on the bottom. Now fire the orange bird towards the mango hanging down from the chain on the far right. His expansion should detonate the TNT and with a little luck take down the far right tower and all the remaining cages. This one is touch, so stick with it.

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.

Launch Blue at about 60 degrees, aiming for a spot just below fruit on chain at far right. If done correctly, the right half of the level is history due to large explosion. Then aim Orange for midpoint of left tower, essentially a just-above-horizontal shot. Expand at impact and watch rest of level crumble. Two birds left for 20K bonus. Aloha.

Started out using this method before I saw any post…glad I was doing what seems to be best strat…I noticed if you keep big blue low upon release just clearing the top triangle at the beginning he seems to do more damage to right structure…

apparently I got real lucky on this board. 2nd try, I did the blue bird to the first stack and it set everything off sending a piece to the right side and imploding the TNT and destroying it all with one bird. 12850

Until I watched the video, I was happy with my score, but now that I see how many people have broken 130k, I have to keep trying. That’s one thing about this site; all the help and tips really keep you motivated! Thanks to everyone for the hints- Now back to the birds :) .

I managed a 1-Birdie by aiming Blu at the wood atop the left structure. With luck, it caused a huge chain reaction and took everything out, putting me above average on this level. A little more luck and some extra collateral damage to get me above 130,000 would’ve been nice. But, I’ll take what I can get. Now to work on surfcow’s method.

My stragety: 1. Launch Blu into right gasoline. 2. Launch Orange where Blu was supposed to be in original solution(Leftmost Beam of Stone)gets me 125540. Sorry, Big Bro & Yellow Birds!

I have a different strat and it’s worked consistently on this level.
1) Launch Blu towards the chain with the hanging mango, keep at it, every 5 or so times, he’ll demolish everything on that side when the TNT and gas cans explode.
2) Launch Orange Bird straight ahead towards the top part of the cement blocks and upon contact, expand him, he’ll push everything to the other side and demolish everything as well.

when doing the video, if you don’t get the tower to fall when Orange hits…launch Big Bro at about a fifty degree vertical angle. if he hits the steps on the corner, he will bounce up and knock it over….got me 119.610 and three stars.

This strat is similar to the ones offered by @surfcow and @werewolf69 but with a different aiming point for the first shot. Aim Blu to hit the top left corner of the cage with the red bird in it. (on the TNT) If you hit it right (of course Blu is unpredictable) you won’t have to wonder if the right side will topple as it will be pretty much destroyed right away. You can get a decent score if you have over 50xxx after the first shot. A shot in the 55xxx range will get you a really good score. Second shot like the first one in the video. I will also note that those scores are without the tall middle cages being destroyed. Also note that it is apparently not desirable to get those on the first shot (even though your first shot score would be higher)

I tried that angle a bunch of times in the past, and again last night, but I couldn’t get past 134k. Same with going for the tanks through the chain. After reading your post @stocktoad, decided to give the red bird another go. It took another 50 tries, but finally, finally got 137k. Thanks for your post :)

PS I had 53k after the first bird without any damage to the middle.

stocktoad, just tried your shot, and it does just what you said it does, it even gave me 62000 initial points but the end score was only 133000. Maybe it’s worth it to play for more.

I think I just blew your theory about it being better to not take out the middle birds on the first bird. I did the shot exactly as the screen shot I posted above, but this time it also took out much of the middle for 69k. Second shot was kinda downhill from there, for 138k! Yay!

Yup, I think 69k would do it. I never got better than 65k.

@stocktoad, I have been practicing your aim point and was able to break the 137 thousand point barrier, so thank you for your suggestion.

If you are trying for a one birder a good place to aim is right at the joint between the cement and the wood in the first structure. I haven’t gotten one, but was very close several times. The TNT, gas can, and kerosene can all blew but the right hand side refused to topple although it looked like it might. I’m not sure if it would yield a higher score than a good two birder though unless it was a really lucky one.

I got 134k with one bird. Bird hit a bit lower than you described. Tried hitting in roughly the same spot many, many times, but haven’t repeated it.

Riches abound when least expected.I simply chucked blu into 1st structure and everything collapsed in seconds…
Actually,i was managing my modest diner on my smartphone at the same moment,so it was indeed a mindless shot.
I worked out that to get the much appreciated one birder,initial explosion should throw a chunk of the fallen structure into the TNTs beyond.That should destroy 2nd structure and rattle the cages in the middle.
Even got the screenshot in my album,pity it isn’t a challenge today.I see room to improve.
