Angry Birds Rio Blossom River Walkthrough Level #13

Our strategy for Blossom River Level #13 is to loft the Orange bird into the wooden structure in the top-right of the level. The expansion should send a stone boulder on a detour under the level, leaving a chain of destruction in its wake. Of the three remaining marmosets, target the rightmost with a Yellow bird. The unstable structure should detonate the TNT below. The score in the video below is 154,870.

Another 1-bird strategy: High arc, aim for the gap between the square stone block and the crate with a pile of rubble on. Its OK to hit on top of the square stone and let the bird roll down into the gap. With some luck, the upper square stone block (with a marmoset clinging on to it) will fall to the right and break the support of the upper right structure, make the round boulder fall and set off the chain reaction.

Great strat @f91jsw and great score @parlonsqc. I def see the possibility but haven’t pulled off the reality yet. One question – it seems it would work best to NOT let the OB get to the bottom of the gap before manually inflating. Is that correct? Thanks!

@communistpride Find the pile of 7 stone balls to the left of stacked TNTs. Just above the balls is a big wood crate, which has “stuff” on top of it. At 10:00 from that crate is a stone block. I assume he means arc high and land in that gap.

If that’s not what he meant then I’m as lost as you.

Tried hundred times f91jsw’s strategy but only with 161+k. But I also tried slightly different 2 birder strategy and it worked for me. I’ve sent 1-st bird to the middle platform (right end) between the wooden pack and wooden vertical block. It pushed stone debris downwards. Only one stone block remained, but it also was damaged enough to send the stone ball with second bird on the top platform. Second bird must also be carefuly aimed to cause a lot of damage to the upper structure. Try this several times, because there is luck factor needed.

beating my head against the wall here trying to get back above the average. I have noticed something interesting with this level, but have not yet been able to take advantage of it. When the life ring on the far right is touched by a bird, it extends outward from the wall, giving anything in its way a pretty good punch. So far have only been able to get there with yellow, but if I could find a way to get orange to slice all the way through the upper right structure, then get down to the life ring, interesting things might happen. Best of luck to all those who try!!

Ok, this is getting spooky. This is my 3rd high score obtained using a @dmsral tip. Once again, many thanks for his great observations.

Short Strategy: Do what dmsral says! :)

Long Strategy: aim a hair higher than the video. You want to clip the edge of the wood plank under the hollow wood block. Inflate so the rectangular stone block lands on OB’s head around 11:00-12:00. After the points graphics go away, you’ll see where the block is. Inflate late, but don’t hit the ground. Generally, the longer you wait, the more debris gets thrown leftward. The stone block can do it, but usually 2-3 wood blocks do the job.

Aiming Tip: Zoomed in full, aim so the front of the sling pouch is above the highest nub of the tree scenery. Practice the aiming so you can concentrate on the several hundred flings you’ll need to get the inflation timing.

Nice going @Kelani! Thanks for the screenshot, which helped me find the spot to inflate OB. However, those pieces of wood flying to the left do not seem to have enough energy to push over that tower in the middle. This is one of those endless wash, rinse, repeat levels that are so frustrating!

The only difference is the inflate spot may be a bit low. If your debris isn’t flying left and hitting the tower, you’re probably inflating a bit late.

I don’t usually whine during a Challenge, but I’m going to even though today isn’t Tuesday.

Ok guys, I think your OB is bigger then mine …. LOL. I’m just not even seeing how a 1-birder is possible with the inflation I’m getting, but obviously with all these great scores it’s got to be my/user error : -(.

If the inflation pushes the blocks to the left then some other part of the equation doesn’t work & I need need shot #2 & sadly I’m not even average.

Even if not @ mention below, can someone please describe what “it” is that pushes the left tower & how it is that “it” gets there? Does “it” fall, is “it” pushed, does “it” fly thru the air?

I’m too embarrassed to even post my score, but these malicious marmosets will not get the best of me!

@kelani because you have a great score, posted a pic & don’t mind answering my pleas.

@zebung, @liontooth, & @comex666, because as of this post you are the top 3 most improved. I can’t help but note that 2 of you 3 are PC, as is kelani, so is this one of those levels where the platform makes a difference?

Thank you @xebic88, your pic looks pretty similar to @stocktoad (below).

After reading stocktoad’s post I managed 162k. This definitely is the easier of the 1-bird strategies, at least for me, as it was the only one I’ve gotten to work.

Of course, we’ve had an update since this release & perhaps things have changed. Maybe it’s become more difficult to obtain the 1-birder using the trajectory in the 1-birder posts from April & May.

@SweetP Yeah, that happens, and it is a hair puller, but after Level #19 this one’s like heaven! If you’re aiming like my pic and the blocks are moving left, but lack the energy to make it, you’re inflating a bit too late. My dot may be a bit on the low side. You already had lots of practice hitting a tiny time window, so I *know* you can do this :)

Good luck with it, and let me know if you get stuck! Team Bloated Pig is eagerly awaiting our 7th member in the top 7 :)

Easier one birder This shot is similar to the one used by @dmsral @kelani and others, but you don’t have to time the activation. It still takes a few rinse and repeats, but I don’t think nearly as many.

High arc. Aim so the OB goes just over the solid green slab and into the top left corner of the wooden crate. No need to activate. Here is a screenshot https://www.angrybirdsnest.com/members/stocktoad/album/picture/10974/

Leave it to @Stocktoad :) Nice find, man! I’m glad you discovered this, because for some reason, I haven’t gotten a single 1-birder using my strategy since the TT/HH update. Not sure if it’s a game change, or I’m just really out of practice. It does seem odd, though. Before, I was able to get one about 20-30% of the time.

Luv you for sharing this great strategy @stocktoad. Yippeeeee !!! I’m finally above average with 162620 while on my iPad. Of course with such a great idea the average is likely to rise & I may slowly slip back down below average, but for now I’m happy.

A few hours ago I posted a whine for help (above) & also noted that at that time, 2 of the 3 most improved scores were on a PC, as you too are on PC, I’m wondering if there’s a difference between platforms.

Stocktoad, do you play on a secondary platform by chance where you could see if you notice any differences?

Rank: Master Slinger with 7130 points
By Kelani (@kelani)Score: 174,700

One extra tip on @Stocktoad‘s strategy. Every time I’ve gotten the 1-birder to work, OB has just barely clipped the right side of the green plank. It’s a light enough hit that it doesn’t noticeably affect his trajectory, but you will see a little white dust cloud from his impact.

@justpast40 Pre-TT/HH update, I clocked many hours on this level using iOS and PC, and didn’t notice any difference. Since my earlier strategy doesn’t seem to work well anymore, that could have changed. I’ll give iOS a try tonight and see if I notice anything.

@karen68 Apparently we all missed it, even @Rat9 I’ll let you break that humbling news to the rest of the Bloated Pig magnificent seven. :)

I think I see why my old strategy isn’t working. Either they don’t make crates lik they used to, or OB has gained some weight. Before, when he landed on the crate, he’d roll off the right side. Now, he smashes through like it’s cardboard. If I use the same timing, he’s already on the ground when I trigger. That’s too far away to throw the wood blocks with enough force. I was able to get a 1-birder by triggering about a quarter-second earlier, but it’s still nowhere near as easy as it once was. I’m sticking with Stocktoad’s shot.

Nice score @karen68.

What just happened on my last fling was “amazing,” as I was just about to post …… “I’ve since managed another 5k to 167730, which was 53rd on the Leaderboard. I was hoping for Top 50, but oh well, things don’t always work the way I want with these malicious marmosets. There’s still a few hours, so, who knows, maybe I can eke out another 1k or so in points.”

I stopped to think wow, there must have been almost nothing when @bryonjames got his 175770, but because his link was to the wrong level, I went to his album to see if I could find this one. As I waited for my archaic internet connection to load his album & then the appropriate pic, I flung 2 more times & you guessed it, this tentative pseudo-whine worked! My 1st fling didn’t work, but fling # 2 was 169640, an improvement of almost 2k & enough for 30th place. I’m a realist, I’m not delusional; I know I’m an ok or slightly better than average scorer. I don’t expect #1 or Top 10 scores; if I’m in the Top 50, I’m ok … of course I wouldn’t balk at a 170k like yours either ; – )

While I’m generally on an Android phone, this has been on my iPad, but I can’t help but notice there seem to be some very nice PC scores.

Thanks, everyone; GREAT fun!
My score increased most by using a one-birder (philosophy) – & slightly modifying Kelani’s strategy…..by:
using a high arc (w a near-miss) of the ‘cabin’ (structure on platform supported on “Tugboat’)
& landing on the rt-most horizontal plank/board — which does NOT touch the cabin — but DOES touch the square, darker-by-a-shade box — sitting on a thick plank (about twice the thickness of the previously referenced plank/board___aka *THICK* board).
OK; at this point the OB has crash-landed onto & thru the (relatively, thin) plank (which starts out (|| to supt platform) & being supported by a *THICK* board PERPENDICULAR to the ‘platform (~black/dark-green) — AND has ‘taken out’ the box —– BUT, has left the plank/board on top of the box in one piece — & it’s falling (at an angle-‘supporting’ a WAS-perpendicular-to-platform *THICK* board.
BEFORE OB reaches platform – & all the stuff supported by the board we hope has remained in one piece – AND, as a result of the ‘crash-landing’ – all the supported-yet-falling stuff should be at a handsome angle. When you determine that inflating OB, NOW…. will push/propel enuf junk (backwards, towards the sling) towards the sq concrete block to initiate the critical chaos desired. Hope this ‘writing’ disaster helps! Sorry to drone on & on; &, a snap(s) will follow —- but later….after some health adventures. THX, Best & Cheers, ALL, rogue :-)
