Angry Birds Rio Smugglers Plane Walkthrough Level 23 (12-8)

A good strategy for Smugglers’ Plane level 12-8 is to launch the first blue bird straight ahead at the ice planks to the left of the purple bird. That should clear the first tower. Now fling a white bird at a slightly higher arch and drop the egg bomb at the last minute right above the caged red bird. With some luck you may clear the stage here. If not, use the blue bird to mop things up.

1st b/b- To the first towers iceblock at the lowest causing the first tower to fall.

2nd w/b- Drop the egg at the second step so that the fragile body of White hits the top ice block of the 2nd tower.

3rd b/b- Cleanup.

Ty mighty:) 109990 didn’t need 3rd bird though, I realeased bb at probably a slight higher angle. Then split him about halfway. Then dropped wb at a low arc and dropped bomb on step as you said dead mama cleared everything :)ty

No doubt, just so long as all the debris keeps falling to the right, continuing the cascade of destruction.

I’m can’t get the feather on this level. I think you have to destroy all the mangoes, right? Any suggestions?

Forget destroying all the mangoes; not necessary (not to mention keeps you from focusing on what really needs to be done).

I haven’t found this to be the case in general. On many levels, items other than blocks have caused my percentage destruction much higher.. For example, balloons (the kind you bounce off of, not the floating kind) yield HUGE percentage points, as do boulders, lanterns, inner tubes, etc… Fruit usually doesn’t when there is a lot of it, but the papayas were needed to clear a few of the levels.

By Shelly

I have gotten all of the fruit on all of the levels I have completed so far. Each time you get a gold trophy you get another game. Since there are 12 trophies, that is 12 more new games to play!! Also, the fruit IS a part of the game and just as important as killing the frogs or they wouldn’t have put them IN the game. Truthfully, many of them are hard to get with a few being hard to find.
Don’t knock it, if you’ve not tried it! It is an added challenge in and to the game.

I believe you were missing the point here, Shelly. This was a conversation about obtaining the Mighty Eagle feather on this level, not about obtaining Golden Fruit.

I split earlier too. I find it best not to do too much damage with the first bird. If the slab above the purple bird is left at an angle, this is when I get best results. When the egg is dropped to the right of that slab, debris is thrown left, smashing previously fallen fruit and bricks. And for some reason I always get better destruction to the rest of the structure, as though the slanted slab gives the explosion of the egg more force.

Pfffllt. Pay no attention to my earlier post. My latest strategy:

1. Relax.

2. Do not over think it.

3. Fling like a mad woman (or man)

4. Cross your fingers and toes

Thanks for the video, @xebic88…this is my first daily challenge (amazingly discovered angry birds only this summer and this wonderful site not too long ago). If I can be of small help to someone: I split the first bird early so that it takes out the two square ice blocks on the bottom (IMG_0144.jpg). That brings extra 1K that otherwise may be missed (though in all honesty they often break anyway). Generally if I don’t get at least 15K after the first shot (not counting the red bird which sometimes is freed), I reset the level. My current high score is 116K so I have yet to master the infinitely more important second shot, but I’ll keep on flinging!

hi @bonneypattycat, thank you, I was having no luck at all until I came on here and saw @xebic88 video – was tickled pink when I got the score after the 3rd go using his method. Mind you then spent the rest of the night trying to get near it again lol

Cannot improve my old score. Wondering if this is a platform/device issue? My average today is around 105,000 and only got my old 110,000 once. I’ve tried everything people reporting scores in the teens have tried without any luck whatsoever. I have a few levels still missing a third star or a feather so my time is better spent on those. I can live with my score on this one. GL all!

So, it’s less about skill and more about the magic of the comments section on angrybirdsnest.com! Five minutes later, I got lucky with 4K worth of cement debris that toppled just before the score recorded!

I can almost always at least improve my score a little bit for a daily challenge, but unless someone comes up with a miraculous new strategy, I am giving up on this one. The best I can do is 9K short of my previous score. Anyone else having a problem on this one, or is it just me?

@Stocktoad for once, I think it may be just you. :) Which strategy are you using? walkthrough or xebic88?

For my 120k, I used xebic88’s. I fired and split halfway so the blues made the structure protecting the pink bird cage fall to the left, if anything more than one thin stone plank falls on the cage, I reset. Then I fired Matilda so her eyes were level with the seam between the two thin glass planks, and the stone plank above them. Egg right before impact. Matilda pushes the right side structures over, and they all fall off the hill.

@stocktoad i had a hard time improving on my 118k as well. When I got the collapse of the right side the majority of my attempts were barely above average, if at all.
I just kept flinging like in xebic’s video (thank you @xebic88) splitting the blues right before the glass plank, & like @kelani said trying to get a clear a drop point for the 2nd shot on the red cage. When I scored 123k the red cage was destoyed with the first shot & I had only a couple of blocks left on the left side at the end. Good luck :)

@kelani & @karen68 Glad to see both of you doing well on this one, BUT……. I guess I’m glad I am still glad I didn’t spend any more time on it than I did. No Puppies for anyone today I would guess.

118,800 using the way described in the walk thru…. experiment around with the first shot to see how many points are possible…. other then that i’d say to come in as low as pssible with the second shot…..seems thats how my best scores happened
