Angry Birds Space Red Planet Level 5-17 Walkthrough

Our strategy for Red Planet level 5-17 is to launch Terence under the island forcing him to go back and forth between the two steamers creating a great deal of destruction. Then use the Bomb Bird in a similare trajectory hopefully getting him over to the tnt or at least the last 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.

Southvshot with Terence this will clear the left half of the Pyramide.
Aim bomb Bird on the North Blue diamonds (3000) it will then go Down to the TNT and clear the Rest.
3stars and 114820 with this strat

Send Terence straight towards the blue diamonds and onto the geyser. This causes Terence to damage the whole structure nicely.Send Bomb along the same trajectory and be sure to get the TNT too.

Very great tip there @iammighty! The only thing I did different was that I aimed a little higher for Bomb’s shot, it gave it more “digging” power as it went through the structure.

I used this approach as well. Got some good damage out of it.

Thanks IamMighty! Got 120K following your strat.

120580 – Green T same as video. I shot the bomb bird on a high ‘reverse’ trajectory (aimed at the crater on the upper left orb, but still in the gravity field)into the TNT. Very little debris left.

I tried Traneric’s ploy, but so far haven’t managed his results.

Liam-1. Aim Terence at the base of the diamonds-that gives him a little height as the rock acts a launch ramp
2.Let everything settle down completely before launching bomb bird.
3. Let bomb bird explode itself -it often digs in a little before exploding
4. Always take the second shot-even if the first shot looks not all that good.

I need to 3-star a level and i find out That my score is1000 points away from the min. 3-star score. That Happens to me over and over again!

Nothing really new…. first shot just barely over the blue crystals. I really wanted to take out the crystals with the first shot, but if I did, the TNT wouldn’t go off. Second shot a little higher.

Thanks @stocktoad. I think this is the best strategy. Before I saw your message I used a strategy where I also sent Terence just above the crystals so it would set off the TNT, but I was sending the black bird over the closest crater to the front of the structure. It worked well, but sending it up similarly to the first shot (on a little bit higher trajectory) and letting it enter from the right works much better giving higher scores. It gets really deep into the structure and destroys practically everything. Getting all three crystals is a bit of a challenge though, one needs flying debris to break them. After many tries I finally got all three crystals destroyed and had no debris left. That gave me 123650.

@stocktoad, you can hit the crystal and the TNT at the same time if you take just a little off the speed and adjust the trajectory accordingly. It is a tricky shot, but I have done it once or twice.

You are right Burbman, I tried and was able to do it, and it is a really tricky shot. Unless you can figure a way to do it fairly consistently, it probably isn’t worth going for. In order to get a score much over 120,000 you have to be pretty lucky and have everything fall just right. Also, Rovio apparently has ways of scoring points that aren’t obvious. I have had the exact same number of bricks, crystals or boards left and gotten very different scores each time. I still puzzle over how I got my high score. I have had 123,000 several times with seemingly not enough rubble left to push the score into the 125,000 area.

Thanks for the tips @stocktoad ;-) Sending both birds north as you described help improve my score an extra 1500 points. I got some 120K’s before coming here by sending the first bird south,right in the dead center between the first left geyser and the rock above. While fully zoomed in (having a view of the whole screen), there is a bright star right in the middle there that if you aim Terrence at causes some major damage. There seems to be a sweet spot if it hits the empty wood square and darker wood triangle. I have had this first shot score around 68K and clears the whole left and lots of the center. Then I sent BB in the same manner and since most of the left and center is out of the way, he soars over to land near the tnt. I got some 120K scores this way several times.
I tried it your way and I got 121640, all three cyrstals and there was literally only one stone triangle remaining so I very much agree with you about the “non-obvious” scoring system for sure. I had lots more debris and a cyrstal remaining on other runs and scored only slightly less.

No need to do that. Just make sure your aiming dots just touch the tips of the crystal shards either side of the tallest crystal shard-crystal+ dynamite over 90% of the time.

This is what worked the best for me, just skimming over the top blue crystal with the 1st shot then just a tiny bit higher with the 2nd. Ideally the 2nd shot goes into the space in the middle of the structure by the 2 small vertical wooden planks without dropping to the ground. There is a dimmer star right along this path to the left of the top crystal (zoomed out on my ipad) which helps aim, the 1st shot goes a bit below it & the 2nd shot right through it.
I agree with others, the scoring is hard to predict. I had several scores of 122-123k where I destroyed everything, but when I scored 127k there was a piece of wood left.

@karen68 – congratulations on your new puppy! Well done! I came very close (within 80 points), but did not make it. It is hard to concentrate on Challenge levels these days, with so many new levels to play from the latest updates. I wish our admins suspended the Challenge at times like this. Since they are very busy now, they may not have noticed today’s Challenge winners. @amslimfordy – attention, new underdogs!

Thanks @annach! I know you & several others were soooo close, this was one of those levels where every single point from destruction mattered, & even then the scores didn’t always make sense!

Avatar of annachRank: Boss Hog with 12725 points
By annach (@annach)Score: 127,720

That’s right. I think the scoring depends not only on how many pieces are broken, but also on how they break: what they hit and at what speed. When I got 127k, I think I noticed a few pieces hit the wall to the right instead of the planet below, which may have resulted in additional points.

I shot Terence upward,which created a sweeping downward arch, causing him to land directley on the dynamite. That took out 2/3rds of the pile. Then i shot the bomb into the center of the upper geyser and that sent it back into the pile and took out ”everthing”. It looked like a Might Eagle was used. That was pure luck on my part.

Sent Terrence (north) over the top, skimming the blue crystal and bouncing off the upper geyser and back into the pyramid. Bb on same trajectory only higher -he bounced off the upper geyser, landing in the center of remaining debris and pigs -kaboom!

Avatar of waimeaRank: Gold Flinger with 7610 points
By waimea (@waimea)Score: 127,780

I used pretty much the same strat as above, although Terrence shouldn’t bounce, he should curve…right into the TNT. To get the highest scores, you need to have gotten both the top and the right crystals with this shot, and hopefully leaving a nice hole for the blackbird. Shoot him just a tiny bit above your first trajectory to bounce him into the center of the debris. Chaos ensues. I saw NO debris left.

Repeatable 120k+ score strategy-
First Bird – Aim Terence slightly just above the tip of the top crystal, without hitting the crystal. Then the Terence should go to the far right side & detonate the TNT & blow the right side of the structure & Far right crystal. To get 120k+, make sure that flying debris should take out the Top-most crystal. Score should be 45k+ after first shot.

Second Bird – See the trajectory line of first shot. Aim second bird slightly higher than the trajectory line. Bomb Bird should “dig” into the remaining structure, then manually detonate Bomb bird. A Lot of damage. Flying debris should take out the far left Crystal. Score should be 120k+

My score I had with sending Terence in a very high arc (almost out of orbit) so that he lands on the TNT and the crystal in the far right corner. Bomb Bird north over the crystal to put out the rest.

I am soooooo confused as to how this level scores. I just had 100% destruction and ended up with a score 3000+ points below my personal high score :/

WAY Easier first shot:

Fling Terence up the ramp to the crystals. On impact, activate his screech. The 2 pigs on the other side of the ramp will jump, collapsing the ledge and opening up the channel to the lower geyser. Now Terence can bounce between them at his leisure. Easier than trying not to get stuck in the underneath shot, suiciding pigs, and a free crystal. What more could you ask for?
