Beach Volley level 6-12 is a bit difficult, but only relies on one shot. Our strategy is to fire the Red birds a little above horizontal, looking for the right angle to topple the main structure. It is not very stable, so only one or two hits are needed. The score in the video below is 97,200.
Note: The first Red bird in this level has been replaced with a Yellow bird. While the strategy remains the same, you can now speed a Yellow bird over the umbrellas into the structure beyond. Since the level is now easier to complete, the video below will suffice.
Scored 106,000 on second try.. Only one method on this one I think.. Just lucky!
I found the one bird method by trying to get that stupid melon! I thought I would watch the walkthrough to see if there was a better scoring method-probably the first time I got 3 stars without trying (100860). Still can’t get that melon, even after watching the fruit walkthrough, so close:(.
103,080 with one bird. No skill in this level at all, just luck. Try to shoot the red bird as far as it will go
Just two fun comments on this one … first for those who have had trouble reaching the melon in the crate it is possible with a maximum shot on the yellow bird … launch at about a 45 degree angle at then click when he is at the top of his flight and you will just barely reach the melon … also not sure if this happens all the time but a funny buggy side effect of this is that the yellow bird got stuck between the two umbrellas and just bounched back and forth at super high speed forever making the bird noise! HAHA!
103170, first yellow bird aimed low & tapped shortly after launch. It landed on thin plank in front of lowest marmoset with structure collapsing backwards on to second structure taking out the last 2 marmosets.
You must be thinking of a different game. There is no “first” yellow bird, just one, and it’s the last in line. If you’ve wasted 4 red birds, there’s no way you will get over 100k, more like 60k.
Did the same that everyone else did when the first bird is yellow for the one bird solution but I tapped the bird right from the sling getting to the structure at a low angle and then watch the fun begin. Enjoyable level to play. One can change the angle of the launch and watch the different results of the destruction sequence.
This was the easiest 3 stars I’ve ever gotten. One shot and that was it.
105340 with 1 bird. Launch yellow bird in a low arc. Tap it just at the right time (about half way across) and it will take out the low double sticks wiping out everything else on the way down. It took me quite a while as I was stuck on 99830 and couldn’t crack the 100,000 benchmark, then it just happened. Whoopee!
Yellow Bird? Are you sure you’re in the right walkthrough?
Yep, double checked. My first bird is yellow because Rovio changed the first bird from red to yellow (see NOTE above). If your score was achieved with a red it may be worth returning to the level and upping your score with the yellow which I imagine makes it a LOT easier. Fun level.
im gonna put a sensible comment over here first, 1st bird is yellow all of a sudden and i can’t still beat my high
What device are you using?
what the? I see the comments above.. I just went back to this level and they added?/changed the order of the birds.. now the first bird is yellow, in what update did this happen? i’m on ios, maybe you should wrote a small discaimer on this slim?
ah, i see in the video they just changed the bird.. maybe a new walkthrough video? seems to be easier scoring higher on this with the YB first?
They replaced the first bird with the yellow one.
I see it. Thanks guys. Not sure if a new video is really necessary (maybe), but I will change the information in the almanac and such.
Since the first bird is yellow, you can totally avoid the umbrellas. I found this out by accident. I was trying to up my score on this level a little because I wasn’t happy with my rank on the leaderboards. I was trying to high arc to come down on the umbrellas when I tapped my screen too early. I then watched my bird go straight to the structure and take everything out. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it a couple of weeks ago when I was trying to get above average on all the Rio levels. This little discovery catapulted me from the low 700’s on this level’s leaderboard to the #10 spot. I am pleased. Now to milk another 2,000 points out of it to try to get another top score on the leaderboards.
That being said. The money shot for this level is the vertical board that is holding up the only plank of wood that holds two marmosets. If you come in at the right angle it will tear through the structure and push everything left for a one birdie solution. If you’re lucky, you can sometimes get some of the debris to bounce around on the umbrellas getting you some extra points until the level stops.
Must agree….. Thanks
Yellow bird same angle as video, using the speed burst right away.
Lol I thought I was confused(as usual)….but. after reading commments about bird switch…I realized I wasn’t confused…100200 first shot with Yellow Bird..lol, he did bounce off umbrella so think I maybe able to do better…also would lile too see the funny mentioned by chris …I haven’t got the melon yet…ty for help:)
Wow! This was cool! I also came back like others have mentioned to improve my score which was 102K – 103K…and before coming to this page…I thought I remembered hitting the umbrellas before and did so again with no special out come…then I tried with YB for a long shot and sure enough he zoomed right over there and took everybody out with one bird…then I came here and saw that they changed it from a red to a yellow and what a difference! I tried a few more times and wow…got 107160! I got this and 107140 once too…I got these scores by hitting front two thin vertical slabs along with the first thicker horizontal one and it causes the debris to tumble down on umbrellas and they bounced several times for lots of points…the other 107K score I hit the two thicker horizontal pieces of wood that are stacked on top of each other below the first monkey sticking out in the middle. debris alos fell onto umbrellas this way as well! AWESOME!
I wonder why they chose to change this level to make it easier – it’s not as if it was a particularly tricky one initially. There are some far harder ones in Seasons Greedings on ABS where a bird switch would be much appreciated! Nonetheless, I’ll take the extra 10k in points and move on! :D
Alright I did it before the level was nerfed.One bird sent first structure rightwards, very little left.
that’s impressive maybe u could get 112k with the yellow :)
i got my score on this speeding up not much out of the sling hitting nice and low at front u want the falling slabs to go through the wood ,also some luck hitting second or third lst umbrella on a low trajectory so it spins in to the sweet spot,.
Still the highscore after 4 months? Sorry I couldn’t be enough specific.I reckon the red is better at pushing,while the yellow excels in penetrating.If you can get the yellow straight at structure at a low speed it may be a better pusher.That was my very first successful attempt.
I started todays challenge with a 107k score(#51) and just now raised it to 109,290 by hitting low near the left concrete blocks. They broke somehow and gave a great score. I am not sure exactly where the hit was as I was trying everywhere.
I’d shot low & broken the vertical concrete but without much luck as far as points.
My 1st Challenge improvement from 104520 on Android phone to 107300 on iPad came when not just shooting low, but a piece or two or wood bounced up & down against umbrellas racking up what I think was a few thousand points. Many times after this the level timed out before scoring more than a few hundred points from these bounces,
Still on iPad, I switched to shooting a little higher with no luck, so back to low it was & this time the horizontal concrete broke & I had some wood bouncing off unbrellas for 109750.
I’m thinking there’s puppies to be adopted with this Challenge
Did somebody mention puppies?
Oh, no, another lost morning……..
@hunnybunny, I expected to awaken this morning to find I was no longer the most improved & since I’m only about 1k from a puppy presumed that with all these great players there would be some adoptions. I’m not giving up yet but I’m thinking I got really lucky with my score.
I also hit the structure low, coming in from a medium arc. The bird cracked the stone horizontal, which was then destroyed by the stone falling from up top. The horizontal wooden plank broke as well, although I didn’t see what hit it. Most of the time when I managed to break either or both of those planks I didn’t get the push to the right to topple everything over, but this time it worked.
Most of my scores have been in the 101-103k range so I think I got a bit lucky.
I’m posting a screenshot of the trajectory I used, although I don’t think it’s all that useful. You can barely see the line against the background, but I aimed up at about 45 degrees. The boost point is above the 3rd umbrella, in the clouds. Unfortunately the clouds move so it’s hard to use them to judge when to tap.
After shooting this level a couple hundred times, something must have crumbled a little more then usual. Same strategy I guess which is just hurl the yellow bird down there and hope for the best. Didn’t start off looking like it was gonna be anything special, but ended up so. Here is the screenshots, and hopefully I will get my first puppy….. seemed like there was unclaimed ones still needed a home, lol.
@mumsie42 i think i supposed to do that.
was done on an Android in case anyone wanted to know
Very nice crash, @tmax. I’m not an admin, just an old-timer, but when last I looked at the B & R group, @sweetp & @kelani were in charge of puppies, although Mumsie was at one point. See here:
I remember how excited I was when I finally earned my Underdog Badge (about 2 yrs after joining ABN,) so I’m including Sweetp & Kelani to speed up this award for you : -) Congrats !!!
Thanks!… I was just lucky of course, but still enjoying the thrill, lol… thanks for the tip about mumsie, ..I joined a few years ago as well, have a few #1s, but.this is first puppy…. my girlfriend has two of them, lol…. now she cant make fun of me :-)
I think I just got bitten by the bug. The DCB bug that is. android, version 2.3.0
I was flinging while waiting in a drive through, I had just tossed a yellow into the structure as the video probably shows, food was ready, put the phone down, drove to work, etc. and checked much later. I don’t smoke so I take my allocated 10 minute smoke-break and fling a few. when I unlocked the phone I saw a 98,000 and then it COUNTED THE 4 BIRDS for 138K! since you can’t scroll back to the right I could not confirm if this was some weird self destructive thing, I have seen stone blocks from up top bouncing off the umbrella to the left and back in to the structure (repeatedly) and shaking things so didn’t know if there was an outside possibility that this could be a real score. @AMSlimFordy ?
For now i’ll leave my highest 101820 posted unless I get word that this could be real. The good news is, I bumped up some other BV scores and just made the “front page” – top 100! I need to go back and get the three remaining hidden object levels unlocked, I’ve been through the walktroughs but there are still a couple I can’t find.
Bad news is, even if I went back to bump up the score on this level, that stupid DCB score would be on top unless there is a way to access the data file and remove a score.
or @birdleader or @lesleyg is the Dual Count Bug still around in Beach Volley on Rio v2.3.0? or is it possible something fantastic happened and the level imploded while I wasn’t looking?
and if it is a dual count error, is there a way to remove the score from my phone? I’ve been working SOOOOO hard coming through here to get to the top 100 that this leaves a bad taste in my mouth, ironically on the same day I actually made the top 100 without any powerups or buggy levels or anything.
@knichy Everything you describe points to the DCB glitch, sorry. There is nothing you can do to revert that. Needless to say that we can’t allow DCB scores on the LB.
My first bird is Red and the level is a very very sucky (un)lucky one.
