Angry Birds Rio Timber Tumble Walkthrough Level #17

Our strategy for Timber Tumble Level #17 is to loft Big Brother over everything, causing him to break through the right side of the level. With a little luck, he can destroy the right side while causing the remote to trigger, yielding a one-bird clear. For a more-repeatable two-bird solution, fling the first Big Brother off the angled wall below the logs, detonating the trigger first. The score in the video below is 179,910.

I’ve got 2 golden gears left to get, and this is one of them. Any tips?

@mvnla2, I hope that you’ve attained the golden gear by now. If not, I was able to get it by launching Terrence on a flat trajectory onto the rubber tire. Big Red bounced over into the gear. It goes without saying that you must first clear the structure first to open a parh to the tire. Good luck.

@3sjs and @jwgardenwiz — Yes I did get the gear following 3sjs’s strat. I thought I posted thanks, but I don’t see it.

@mvnla2, clear the way to the tire below the remote and the stuff in front of the gear. Then ricochet Big Bro off the branch to the tire below bouncing up to the gear. Took a bit but I finally got it.

(I should have said “angled wall” rather than “branch”. Thought it was a tree until I looked closer.)

1 bird. Big Red high arc, so that it clears the wood boulders, and rolls down the branch, into the black tunnel. Will set of a chain re-action. 183k

I used 2 birds for 191k.

First bird, clip the small wood piece releasing the logs, bird flys on to the right doing more damage.

Second bird like first in the walkthrough video.

@bonneypattycat @emdider I assume your talking about getting the gear using 2 birds not your score ? I can only get close to 190k by following the above video:/am i missing something to get above 190k ?

@kathy You just haven’t tried enough! Of course, when is “enough” is pretty hard to say. I was stuck at 189k and on maybe the 100th or 200th try (of just the @amslimfordy method; many more of the alternatives) I passed 190k. I think that I’m done.

Lol @snoid ; P right who knows when is ‘enough’ I suppose I could fling a few more (hundred) times And I probably will lol;) happy to see it worked for you nice flinging. O.k now put back the ‘L’ factor i need it;)

@kathy BTW, I didn’t see the tire–I’ve got to look closer–so in order to get the gear, I ended up bouncing Big Bro #3 of #2 (#1 just cleared the path). It actually only took me ony about a dozen tries. I thought it would be a lot more.

@kathy, sorry for the late response. It was 2 birds for my score. I was just starting to play this level, messing around and lucked into a good score.

SOooo, @ kathy & @ bernersenn , are your scores a result of 1-bird or 2-birds? Like @bonneypattycat it is TWO-birds for my 192,830 score …. simply because I have only been able to score 191,710 as a high for ONE-bird. Also with the 2-birds score, I ‘set-up’/positioned for 2nd shot – immediately – & flung the 2nd bird very-soon & at just-barely-before the ‘auto-counter’/AB scoring program “kicked in” :-).

ALSO, kind folks, I DO understand if you can’t recall exactly what happened ~ a year ago, btw :-). As a late-comer to the adventures, I get ~ a year’s-worth of the extraordinarily helpful tips, notes, suggestions, etc. from the world’s experts …. { Although, I help prove that if one is a poor enough player, even experts’ advice may not help :-( LOL. } THANKS MUCH, everyone! :-) _
Best & Cheers, Rogue :)

Say @pit , CONGRATS(!!!) …. on GREAT score & on the ‘Trophy’/#1 spot :-) !!!
I can’t find your post/pic/screenshot { I don’t navigate very well :-) } ; but, I’m assuming your score is a TWO-BIRD score?
From reading the posts, I get the sense that some may have achieved ~ 195K+ scores as result of a ‘ONE-BIRDER’ – but am not, at all sure about that. I’m curious to know if your 196,120 is a single-bird shot —- &, if so, what thoughts/strategy you used; and, if your score is the result of 2 birds, what strategy you used …. or recommend.
My “TWO-BIRD” strategy (with ‘fast release of #2) is described above — & in the snap below … wherein I ‘pointed’ to my 2nd bird release position…. for 195,790 .

Extremely lucky on my part, tho { vs. being an excellent player :-) }. Every once in a great while, a ‘Big Brother’ bird will do amazing damage/debris ‘clean-up’ ….. which I can only attribute to great good fortune :) .
It is, however – fantastic LUCK notwithstanding – tremendous FUN :-) !
In any event, thanks for your help! If you happen to see this – & have a moment – your comments will be most appreciated!
Same goes for @bernersenn & @kathy :). Best & Cheers, Folks, Rog :)

I did it also via 2-birder. Aim for the upper branch (angled wall…) pointing southeast. Bird will drop down on fuse to release logs, like described by AMslimfordy (but without vid). The tire makes also sense then. 2nd shot as in vid. I would say that this strat gives simply more points.

I used the same shots and order, however, I don’t clip the wooden gate. It’s a really hard shot to hit, with lots of failures, and since that piece breaks when the logs roll off, it’s pointless (bad pun unintended) to mess with it.

I don’t think shot order makes any difference, either. My last 191k was with the shots reversed. All you need to do is get all the 500pt mushrooms and bananas by the tire, then hope falling stone debris destroys lots of wood.

By Ladybird (@diannas)Score: 192,890

I agree with you @kelani, I was trying both 2 bird strats, either first bird to upper or first bird lower.
With the upper limb throw one should get most, if not all 500 point mushrooms. But for the lower throw I found the secret was in the bananas! I was doing pretty well in the mid to upper 180’s with shooting the first bird lower making sure to get the bananas. Using my three “P’s”, flinging away hoping to get over 190k.

But on one try I did the upper fling first, got all with one bird like the vid, but I saw my score of 163k, even with two extra point birds I wasn’t going to top my personal high score of 188k .. So I quickly (this level times out fast) shot the second bird down into the box of bananas, plus got some of the other extra debris hanging around as bonus; this shot increaed my score nearly 20k for score of 182k+, plus the 10k extra bird points for 192k+ for my final score.

So for me, I’m found the secret for higher score was in the bananas.
There’s a lot of points in that box of produce!

While finally coming here once more to whine that I couldn’t get out of the mid-180’s I flung once more and popped a 191 with a onebird. observations: a clean pass on top keeps more momentum, needed for big red to break through – he usually disappears before the plunger can activate. the mushrooms are worth almost 5K, get them all. The bananas are key to the high score, it helps if the upper part of the left structure manages to fall and crush some bananas before they get protected.

Another tough one …. tried like walkthrough but 186750 was below average ….. finally managed to shoot to the angled wall @emider described so well & also clipped the gate setting off log roll to the left at same time Big red Brother set off detonater. 2nd like 1st on video for a disappointing 189050 … Oh well, at least I’m above average.

A one birder and 195K finally, but I also had lower scores like 175K with 1 bird, so just keep flinging.

After many tries on Timber Tumble 17 and hen reading this thread I went back for another go and managed in about ten tries – this is what I did:

1. Activate the timber tumbling by flinging one red bird onto the tree branch.
2. Clear the pathway to the gear with bird number 2.
3. With great speed as soon as bird two is flung, use the enlarge bird and quickly throw bird three onto bird two which will then cause bird three to bounce upwards into the space in he tree where the gear is situated. Yeah!
