Angry Birds Space Red Planet Bonus Level S-12 Walkthrough

Red Planet bonus level S-12 is unlocked by 3-starring levels 5-11 through 5-20 of Red Planet. One strategy to complete this level is to use a Space Egg to pull the fiery asteroid into the wake of the westernmost geysers, causing it to explode in the pile of ice blocks at the end of the wind tunnel. Use another Egg or two to clear the remaining pigs.

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.

Send the egg Down the Magma Asteroid to pull this One to the steam. It will fly to the right and clear all the pig and the Glas Blocks.
Send the Second egg under the North pig it will pull the Block to the South and clear the South side.

Same strat, but I used the 3rd egg for extra damage. It gives a whole lot more points than getting bonus points for 1 egg.

This strategy is the same as the showen strategy. You’r just a little more lucky.

I sent the egg on the lower left of the magma asteroid sending it to the geyser behind the slingshot,sending it to the ice blocks like a boomerang and killing all the pigs on the right side on the level. then I sent the next egg to the top of the south area (with Metal and wood only)sending the objects to the northern tower(with metal and wood also),killing the remaining pigs.

The best way to get a high score here is to send the fiery asteroid to the far side either as on video or as Cedrick describes above (cedrick’s way is easier and works better I think). The goal is to destroy all the ice blocks and hopefully kill all the pigs on the right side. Then use the two remaining eggs to pull bricks to destroy crystals: lower side bricks to crystals above and upper side bricks to the crystal next to the big rock.

I was playing this level as you posted this, so I gave a try to pulling the lava-stroid out, and got about 80K after the first egg, and improving my score by about 4K overall. Great strat…thanks!

Thank you very much for your strat. Pulling the brix in the crystals wirth the secound and third egg is genius. That helps me to get over 150k.
But you will need lots of luck. A curious thing is the first shot when you pull the Lavathing in the middle… i got different point for all the ice blocks and all the pigs on the right from 60k up to 85k…

Having problems getting above 139K on this one. Used to be good enough for average, but no more. Exactly where do you aim and detonate to get blocks to take out ice crystals — Not having much luck with that, especially not lower crystals. Any help appreciated. Thanks, @annach @playdbird @becon79

The scores sure do vary on this level. It reminds me of the cell phone t.v. commercials…”inconsistent billing” except it’s “inconsistent scoring”, lol.
I pull the firey asteroid out by aiming the egg left, towards the left most geyser and the dots wrap around upward to come in under the firey asteroid and tap to pull it slightly so that it comes out and goes right and lands in the dead center of right structure. This is where the scores can vary alot. I have got anywhere from 60K to 85K and in both situations, all pigs and all blue ice were gone so they are definately calculating the points differntly somehow…I notice I seemed to score higher here if everyhting went quickly verses slow popping. Then I aimed second egg also at the left geyser (same trajectory as first shot)again to wrap around and go at the top left side of middle section (with the pigs and wood/concrete) and then tap the egg a little before it arrives to try and get atleast one of the stones to hit the crystal under the boulder while still getting as many of the rest of stones and wood as possible. It’s kinda tricky but if you aim it to come in at the left side you should be able to get the bottom crystal and all the debris or most of it to come out. What ever is left can be taken out with third egg. I throw the third egg at the bottom section also on the left side but I have not been able to consistently get the top cyrstals. My highest score of 146080 was with 82K after first egg and one crystal.
@mvnla2… you just have to keep at it because I got as high as 144710 with no cyrstals. When this happened I got 80K+ on first egg and the second two just cleared every piece of wood, cement and glass squares but no cyrstals. GL

Yes, I know getting those crystals is not easy. I just try to get the egg on the left side of the pile of bricks so it has some pull to the left. But I know it is tough, most of the time the bricks fly to the right anyway and don’t get the crystals. When I got 148K, I only broke one crystal above and the one next to the big rock. AngryAdvisor has a good point: it is probably more important to get a good score after the first egg than to get more crystals. I just tried playing this level again and I see indeed this score variation that she describes. Based on the score at this point (after the lava asteroid destroys everything on the right side) one has to decide whether to continue or to restart. When going for a score above 140K, I would say if you got less than 80K after the first egg, then restart.

Same strategy using all eggs.
There is the method to let a crystal graze lava with the first egg, but does not readily hit it in the middle of the lump of the ice of the right-side end.

Finally! If you get the fire asteroid so that is hits in the center you can get 85k+ on the first bird. Then go for far side and pull slightly up so that one rock gets crystals under boulder. Then clean up with last egg. 150k!

Got another 149k. The trick is for some reason, when you get the fire asteroid in the middle of the right end, you can get nearly 90k with near total destruction. After that it depends on getting the crystalsmundernthe boulder.

Btw, the sample video would have had over 145k if they had flung the last egg. note that they got 75k with one pig left after first egg. If you don’t hit center, this can be 20k less.

The first two eggs as in the video, after the second strike cube touched a big stone and he fell into the bottom of the killing of the crystal. Third egg also draws out as early as possible, so that bricks fell into a pit of crystals. Sorry for my English.

By Samuel

This is a weird strategy but hit the bottom of the magma with an egg. The egg should ricoshay and destroy all the pigs by the glass. The magma will explode and destroy the remaining pigs. 1 egg needed!

I used a different approach to this level.

First egg down the lower side of the channel, triggered at the very top of the small blocks. This did several things, pulled the asteroid into the channel to be sent to the bottom, pulled one of the small blocks across the channel to hit the lavasteroid, pushing it back into its crevasse and exploding it, picking up most of the crystals, and sent the remaining little blocks across the channel to dislodge the blocks on the upper side, cascading down to take out most of the ice and pigs below. Second egg to pick off remaining pig. Third egg 10,000 bonus for total of 146k.

Happy Hunting!

@burbman — Thanks for your help! Will try some more. Seems you got a huge number of things to happen with the first shot. Any more details on how you aimed, or when you detonated. I find word strats for these egg levels to be extremely difficult to follow. So much depends on exactly where you are when you detonate.

@mvnla2 – I aimed about three of the small blocks away from the lower edge of the channel, and tried to trigger just before I got to the first block. Everything happens so fast on this level that I probably actually triggered about even with the first block. Sometimes the asteroid does not fall, but you have to make sure to get the lavasteroid to take out the crystals.

Thanks @Burbman — I once got something close to what you described with the first shot, but had pesky pigs left at the right top and bottom — next to impossible to get with one shot. Managed to just barely get above average again. Think I will just hope the average doesn’t go up again. Can always wish it would go down.

More than most of the ABS levels, this one makes me wonder how destroying (nearly) the same amount of blocks yields so different scores. Once I had pretty much the same destruction as before, but including two crystals, yet the score was about 4k lower than before. It seems to me that you get more points when blocks are destroyed directly (not by 2-3 hits), but I may be wrong.

Rank: Flinger with 25 points
By MadSadBird (@sadbird)

@argon, you may actually be correct, I have also found that the destruction scenarios although quite similar, produce vastly different scores every time. What I am trying to figure out is how to get all those beautiful glowing crystals as well.

Rank: Flinger with 25 points
By MadSadBird (@sadbird)

I just saw a comment somewhere up above that describes how to achieve that goal, but it relies heavily on the lava asteroid killing all the pigs on the right side first. I will try later, it certainly seems doable.

I just got 151,300. I used pretty much the same strategy as listed above. I launched the first space-egg just under the lavastroid, sending it to the far right side, taking out everything there. Sent the second space-egg down toward the lower center well. Detonated right before first little block. Everything in well was pulled upward, taking out 2 crystals & everything in upper well. Debris crashed into far right wall. One space-egg left over.

Sorry everyone. I came to see how y’all were doing on the challenge and couldn’t find my strategy posted. I don’t know if it got trashed or I just forgot to put it up here, but I’ll rectify that now.

This is one of those levels where you need all the birds to attain the best score.

1st bird–arc towards magma ball. Activate to barely bring the magma ball to the left and out. You want it to almost hit the blocks as it heads to the right. It will look like it does hit them, but leaves them intact, if you do it right. Scores in the 80-85k are good.

2nd shot–Aim about an eggs width away from the left corner of the lower group of blocks. Activate when you’re about a block or less into the grouping. This will hopefully send a few of the concrete blocks over to the four crystal groupings. It’s almost impossible to get all four of them. Two or three is good. The rest of the blocks will fall to the right and disintegrate. Score ? I don’t remember.

3rd shot–Repeat what you did to the lower grouping with the upper grouping. Hopefully the second shot didn’t disturb the upper group. If it did a lot of damage, it will be hard to get the crystal and rock to die. With a perfect 2nd shot there will be no damage. Doesn’t happen very often.

If you’re able to shoot as per my instructions and you get lucky, you can get close to my score. I already got most of the shine off that nickel. lol

P.S. The most critical shot is the first one. You can get an extra 10k more than normal if you get it close to the upper grouping. I don’t know why. Good luck flingers and again I’m sorry I had nothing posted.

Sorry. I didn’t see this while the challenge was still on. I don’t know how this helps other than to show you 90k is possible. I include pigs that are still alive in the score because they will die when the blocks rain down on them. I completed this fling with a score of 146k+. But there was 15k of crystals left and 1k left for the boulder for a potential total score of 162k+. Btw, I don’t count the two crystals on the far left. I can’t get them with any regularity at all. http://www.angrybirdsnest.com/members/rat9/album/picture/6362/

@swellD–Yes, I’m left of the magma ball when I activate. That’s the only way to make the magma ball go left and out as I said in my initial strategy. You want it to barely come out. Just enough to clear the blocks. This is the only way I found to get scores in the 90k’s. Good luck

@rat9 Just curious, approach angle aside, where does your lavasteroid land? My best results are with a dead center hit on the 3 piglet triad. Center+Symmetrical lavasteroid shrapnel seems to wipe out most everything, with around 80k pts. If you’re getting 5k+ shooting elsewhere, I’d find that pretty neat. Almost as neat as noticing you’re also a Carolinian… albeit a South one. :)

Northerner eh? Just a note: If you could put your questions as a reply to the thread in question instead of a new topic it would help people understand the question in the future. Just like you northerners to do things a little different. lol

The magma ball hits slightly north of center. When it hits the center, which you would think the better shot, the scores are significantly less. I can’t get the 90k+ scores on the first shot with great regularity, but often enough. High 80k’s about one in three.

@rat9 Um.. Because sharing knowledge improves the human condition? :) You seriously have nothing to worry about. The only 2 top scores I have are ties with you! All the rest, I’m varying spots back in the pack. The only levels you need worry about are the scant few you didn’t unquestionably dominate. (Only those give me a snowball’s chance of improvement). But even those, I wouldn’t worry about. The last 4 days, I’ve been in flu mode, flinging away at Pig Dipper 6-11. Somehow, I tied you on my 10th attempt, so I thought “let’s try that again”. 6,240 attempts later, all I’ve gained is tunnel vision and a blister. :)
