Angry Birds Space Red Planet Level 5-27 Walkthrough

Our strategy for Red Planet level 5-27 is to launch Red Bird towards the wooden plank holding the black rocks. The resulting chain reaction, with the help of the steam geysers, should send debris flying and destroy all the pigs.

I used the same strategy, but I send Lazer towards south of the planet and redirect him into the wooden planks (where the trio piggies were laughing at me)

I did the same thing, but redirected Lazer to hit as many crystals as I could on the far side. before the cascading rocks could pop all the piggies. So far 118k, but more to get.

For those of you familiar with American Football, this level demonstrates the key to being able to run the ball effectively. It also supports Surfcow’s 3rd Commandment: the best offense is using your opponent’s defense against them. In this case, those big balls dangling can be seen as a nuisance or like big fullbacks who can open up holes in the defense for the smaller, faster tailback to run through. Whatever approach you choose, use your bird(s) to let loose one of those giant pig-crushing spheres in order to clear the way for those little rocks to wreak havoc on the fortified forts below. Try experimenting with different approach angles toward the wooden corral holding all of your rock ammo. The video shows a rock getting lucky half way through the assault, however by breaking the tether earlier you get the benefit of more soft spots to attack. Aloha.

@surfcow – great explanation! Very entertaining but informative too.

But you really had me at “giant pig-crushing spheres”.

There’s obviously alot of luck involved here but you can somewhat control the situation.
I’ve got 3 scores so far of 113K+ by sending red bird to kinda bounch off the last pebble (the one that moves upon reset), then break the wooden beam. He’ll float up to hit top crystal and as he comes back down, he should be in line to “steer” the falling pebbles to the right…as the pebbles run into red on his way down, you can usually get two “giant pig-crushing spheres” ( the top left and right ones)to cut loose and get three cyrstals for scores over 113K.

I’ve experimented a bit on this level and I’ve consistently got 117k+ scores by launching very quickly after reset. The positon of the first pendulum is obviously critical but I haven’t had much success waiting it out. Reset, swipe to get to slingshot, and launch immediately. It doesn’t give you any time for precision aiming so you don’t always hit right, but the best target is as @AngryAdvisor observed the last pebble before the plank.

It’s critical that the second pendulum falls early: it crushes the structure and opens up for more destruction by the lava stones.

That seems to be a pretty good strat @f91jsw. I did that a few times and got a 116k, close to my current high of 117k. It’s quick and painless so hopefully I can get get lucky and get into the 120’s before too long. Thanks!

@f91jsw Thank you and also @lesleyg for the strat..I did find a better score flinging quickly off the sling. It is hard to aim correctly hitting that stone that Angry Advisor describes above but with a little luck and a lot of restarts it eventually gets better:)
Good luck to all:)

Step 1 of daily challenge, Get over average. 120k. Check. Step 2. Get away from last on daily leaderboard. Check. Step 3. Get into Top 50. Not check. 400 short. Got 120k by getting some crystals with red. Currently top for day, 4k short of overall high score. I wil enjoy the lead for the 5 minutes that that will last. Hehehe!

@stocktoad @jaydee I’m getting closer! I seem to not have much luck with The video strat. I end up needing to use lazerbird (the purple bird rockin’ the shades). I use the same trajectory as the video uses with red bird, but as I clear the northern edge of the planet I direct lazerbird down directly at the remaining traitor pig, cutting deliberately through the chain holding the big round wrecking ball of hope. This always gets me that remaining pig, a crystal and more debris destruction. I see that @comex666 has posted a strat with a high arc with red bird, instead of the “hug the planet” trajectory I’ve been using. I’m gonna check it, and thx @comet666 for sharing the strat. Fling on, and good luck!

I’ll detail my strat since it isn’t listed here yet. On the iPad.
There is a chimney of rock on the top left planet that is pointing to 11 o’clock. Unfortunately the is also a star that this chimney points to that is in and out of cloud cover.when you pull the sling down to arc it high the tracking line will just touch the bottom of the star.
The next part is the timing. You want to release when the top left ball is in the steam vent (I.e.) vertical and just as it starts to swing back to the right. Red will hit the tip of the rock gate, pass over the first ball and hit the right vent in the middle dropping that ball and then red will ricochet down to the bottom left side crystal. Aimed just so and he will catch the tip of the wooden plank right before the crystal destabilizing the the structure
The by this time the top left ball will, if done correctly, be released by the rocks and slam down into the pile. The rest is damage luck.
On my current score I got three crystals and all the wood with three stone blocks left.
I cannot get the other two crystals in play so far but I have come close to hitting the one on the far right with a floater slight miss.
There does not seem to be a one bird possibility with a backside approach and these two crystals and the ball may just be tempting decorations to drive me nutters.

@swellD I used the bottom crystals for a decent two bird score. Not a puppy, but respectable. Not sure I understand your approach and it’s too cold outside to try and figure it out. Good shooting.

@rat9 (and all the others in this conversation)I keep seeing the phrase “get a puppy” used in walkthrough comments. I am starting to realize it doesn’t mean a trip to the animal shelter to adopt a pet. What does this phrase mean?

@mecstaveler — Since no one else seems to have answered: You get an “underdog badge”, i.e. a puppy, if you exceed the high score as of the start of the challenge. If you go to the badges and rankings group, there is a list of who has how many. Rat has more than he can think up names for.

Tis true that I haven’t named a few @mvnla2. But since I started late and only play the Space challenges, I’m not at the top. There are at least three people that are in the double digits. @annach, @Karen68, and @swellD all have ten or more. My claim to fame is I’ve only played twelve daily challenges and have won seven puppies. An Earned Puppy Average (EPA) of .583

@swelld Thanks for the detailed strat. Apparently the highest scores happen when all the rocks fall in the middle and destroy everything; because with my score I also missed the two bottom crystals and would have been over 132k with them. I conclude that it is very unlikely to get the middle destruction and also the crystals with the same shot.

@AMslimfordy RP 5-27 Puppy Picture

I’m not sure if I used your strategy @swellD or not. I couldn’t find the eleven o’clock star so I pretended one was there and shot a high arc. Tipped the wood releasing the boulders and continued on to drop the middle boulder. Red bird then hit the far right crystal. Boulders did the rest including taking out the far right large concrete boulder. Thanks @swellD I couldn’t have done it without you.

(Ditto on the Space play @burpie. I’ve hardly played for months except for the Space challenges. I did get a good score on the Cold Cuts challenge two weeks ago and bumped you out of first.)

@AMslimfordy Higher score puppy picture

I wanted to see if my score of 127350 was a fluke or repeatable. At 09:58 EST I scored 127740 but in my haste to log it before the challenge ended, I entered 107740. My only concern is that I took myself off the puppy list because I didn’t have time to correct the score error before the challenge timed out.

I achieved this score with two birds. First like the video. And second around the bottom of the planet hitting the crystal, cutting the cable on the concrete ball, and continuing on to the far right crystal. The concrete ball went to the middle of the debris and did further damage. So in the end I beat @swellD‘s strategy with my own. Both strategies work great.

@mecstaveler. Please go Read the description above the challenge page. This level is todays Challenge.
