Angry Birds Rio Blossom River Walkthrough Level #19

Our strategy for Blossom River Level #19 is to fling Big Brother into the boulder in the middle of the level. Since Big Brother seems to be an expert soccer player, the boulder will detonate the TNT on the right side, clearing half the level. Arc a Yellow bird into the wooden planks in the higher structure to force the barrels to roll off the ledge and onto the TNT below. The score in the video below is 115,180.

119900, high score for the moment. First shot like the video, second shot hits the slabs below the wood where the video shows. This causes the tower fall left and hopefully shoves the entire stack of barrels over the edge for more points.

Up to 121960 by getting Terrence to roll through middle section and then down to the lower level for extra points. Second shot should go through the the small vertical wood behind the big marmoset for more potential points.

Like the video, slightly lower arc on the second shot which meant a slower roll off the edge to get the bottom area.

Just like most of Blossom River, a one birder is possible. Sent the first bird through the middle tunnel and watched as debris went to the left upper tower and pushed it to the left. I see much higher scores coming in the future.

@Rat — you were right! Just got a new high score (for now) with a 1-bird clear just like the first shot in the video. The key was getting the TNT on the right side to explode forcefully enough to send debris left into the tower.

This one-birder didn’t quite happen for me yet, but the “sequence of events” on my near hit was as follows:

1. Shoot bird as described above and depicted in video.

2. Explosion sends one of the square blocks into the upper left side of the middle tower.

3. The tower doesn’t collapse immediately but the boulder rolls down from it, breaks the small vertical plank and the tower collapses to the left.

4. The collapsing tower pushes the stack of barrels and boulders to the left.

5. Here’s where things didn’t quite pan out for me: one of the barrels or boulders is supposed to explode the lower TNT and finish the job. Amazingly ALL 8 of them managed to miss the TNT…argh!

First one 123K+ which was lower than my two-bird score and the second 125,350, just few hundred points over it…double argh!

@bernersenn, consider yourself lucky if it didn’t work out for you just that one time. My track record on this level so far is: 1) Boulders/barrels missed the TNT 2) and 3) Two low scoring one-birders 4) and 5) Two times the square block hit the tower real nice and strong but the boulder rolled to the very edge and then…stopped! 6) Boulder fell down off the tower but didn’t break the small plank holding the tower.

I seem to be droning on about my woes on this level but it’s intentional: I’ve seen some players successfully deploy “whine strategy” so that’s what I’d doing here! This is the only BR level where I haven’t accomplished what I set out to do and it’s driving me crazy.

@fenikus Nice job, man! I noticed you also got a bounce, just off the ground, and at the last second! Also FWIW, your punted block hit much lower than mine, which gives that stroke-inducing slow roll. Could it be as simple as a sweet spot existing at the ring and your impact spot? (excluding that stretch where the stone breaks on impact)

@fenikus mucho gracias, senor, por le video. All right, I don’t speak Spanish but that was BEAUTIFUL!. I flung away at that spot for HOURS and finally popped a 2-bird 122K. I knew there was more waiting, so while watching Jack Reacher, flung at a commercial, and finally saw that top boulder roll – I KNEW something was happening. I’m fine with #4, actually I’m ecstatic.

I did get a bounce off the ring this fling, but I didn’t see what actually hit the structure to start the ball rolling.

Sorry about this, but the whine is a proven method of increasing one’s dismal score.
After days of flinging, I have never, ever, ever seen any debris from the right tower explosion heading towards the left tower with a glimmer in its eye, a thought in its mind, even a little inkling of pushing it over, that would lead to the infamous one birder :-(((((

By Kelani (@kelani)Score: 131,070

Same here. All I’ve seen is a barrel landing at the bottom right of the tower then a stone block hitting it. That makes the top boulder roll 1/3 of the way to the edge.

It seems possible, except for the fact that the flight of debris seems to be near-identical every time. This may be a level to throw into the tester for a weekend.

@hunnybunny, @kelani — don’t hold your breath if that boulder on top of the tower starts rolling…two times it happened for me, the scores were only 123K and 125K, which you can get with 2 birds. Just a fair warning, though I hope you get lucky and break 130K.

@xanthippe19, there are 4 birds available on this level. Do you perhaps mean that you cleared all the monkey with 2 birds, had 2 birds left and those 2 leftover birds were double counted? In that case, your real score would be completely reasonable 122,310. The way you described it, if that one leftover bird wasn’t double counted, you’d have had 132K with 3 birds which is just not possible on this level — you can barely get that score with 1 bird. Thanks again for your quick reply?

@xanthippe19 thank you for the screenshot. I can assure you that I was not the only flinger “suspicious” of your score, which is very high, especially given the difficulty (and ‘luck factor’ ) required on this level.
On any level where such a score is posted without an explanation and screenshot fellow flingers will always question the legitimacy of the score. In this case it was me who spoke out. It was not a personal vendetta against you!
There are other examples all over the nest, some of which have not ended so amicably, thanks to your prompt response and publication of a screen shot.
Moon of Endor 29 is a prime example where things got really nasty, a scenario that I would not like to see repeated again.
Thank you and happy flinging!

@fenikus am I right in believing you only play Rio? You should try Seasons: the Santa Hat glitch in Seasons Greedings, the infamous Wreck the Halls 1-23. Loads of ridiculously high scores achieved with glitches, all now unavailable after updates (at least to us mere, non computer geek, mortals, who haven’t a clue how to back up our scores, reopen old versions, play the glitch, go back again, etc, etc) All the scores have been allowed to stand. It’s a stance that ABN has made, and whether you agree with it or not, that’s the way it is!
Unless @amslimfordy has any opposing views……

@Xanthippe19 Thank you for being so honest.

The issue of double-counting birds has existed for a while (https://www.angrybirdsnest.com/bugs/#bug-36). It has been our policy that such scores should not be permitted on our leaderboards. Would you be kind enough to subtract 10k from your score? We would consider that quite acceptable.

Well, my very last comment on this one.
ABN is an excellent site, and those of us who fling, comment, post scores, compete, get into discussions about scores, glitches, whatever, have to accept whatever is the admins final decision.
Most of the problems stem from Rovio, putting out levels with bugs and glitches, then updating the version so they no longer exist. It is not the fault of ABN
I hope @fenikus @xanthippe19 and @kelani accept the decision, and please all, be like me a little bit. Be prepared to be the fall guy, challenge a score, accept that you may not ‘win friends and influence people’ (anyone know where that quote comes from?)
@xanthippe19 responded quickly, posted the screen shot and was honest. I’ve challenged others, with no response, with an apology for a typo, with a detailed strat in response..
And @amslimfordy I asked time and time again for anyone who posts a top score to get a notification that they did just that, and ask for a strat / screenshot / or even just a nod in the direction of whose strat they followed

I finally found a repeatable 1-bird shot, but it’s the hardest shot I’ve ever seen. Even with perfect aim, there are eight things that must occur for a 1-birder. Each event has a low chance of happening. My estimate of the % chance of success is on each step. Will some mathematician please tell me what the odds are for this thing? :)

1.Aim full power, then back off 10-30%. You want Terence’s gigantic forehead to hit the boulder at 8:00, like a chip shot. The boulder must skim the boxes without touching them, then bounce off the life preserver’s rightmost red band into the bottom TNT. Note: After firing, check your aiming dots. You want the last dot to be one dot below center in the space between the platforms. Trust me, this matters.

2. 50% The hanging TNTs detonate one after another.
3. 50% The 2-stage detonation bounces the pyramid of stone cubes so they land next to the TNT, detonating it.
4. 5-10% One cube is lazily blasted toward the upper half of the tower.
5. 5-10% The cube’s impact makes the boulder roll off *very slowly*.
6. 50% the falling boulder hits the triangle block and breaks the vertical wooden leg, which collapses the tower and pushes the boulders and barrels off the ledge.
7. 50% The falling debris detonates the TNT, clearing the level.
8. 5% Your score is better than a 2-birder. *pant pant*

So, good luck with that? =) I am done with this level.

My likely wrong calculation came out to .00625%, and that’s assuming you hit the boulder in the right spot. “Low” sounds pretty accurate to me. I was a music major. Playing with probabilities could cause me to spontaneously combust.

Ok, I totally believe your stats! (But they may be just a little too high…….)
Hours and hundreds of flings (maybe 1,000), only once did the top boulder roll, but stopped right at edge. About 10 times I was able to move the that top boulder just slightly for a sliver daylight, but it stopped there. I was only able to get 122k with two birds after all the flinging!

I give up on trying for the one bird score. Plus with my luck (or lack of luck) on this level, if the boulder rolled off it would miss the TNT below or be one of the low one bird scores.
After all the time an flings, I don’t think I could bear a flub up if I got the one bird chance!

I am going to keep my sanity and leave well enough alone with my two bird score (for now).

Finding this challenge to be virtually impossible. According to @kelani (see comment above), a 1-birder is extremely rare and depends partly on reducing power on the first shot by 10-30%. If anyone knows how to reduce Terrance’s power whilst aiming on an iPad I’d be glad to know!! 😳
