Angry Birds Rio Blossom River Walkthrough Level #20

Boss fight! Our strategy for Blossom River Level #20 is to wait for the hanging blocks to move a bit to the left, then fling a Yellow bird through their rope. The Yellow bird should continue onward to detonate the TNT on the far side, while the falling block will clear out a few marmosets. Launch the Black bird into the TNT near the slingshot, showering the level with pebbles. When both large marmosets are knocked out, the gate will open to reveal Nigel. A single strong attack on him should finish the level in explosive fashion. The score in the video below is 178,470.

1st Bird like walkthrough, then wait for the bouncy marmosets to hop around. Within 60 seconds or so, they will kill themselves by running into debris. This will open Nigel’s bumper gates. Fling bomb bird into his cubby and watch the fireworks.

@lulu2all @Steinbird Well, I’m glad it worked for ya, but I wish I could edit it. That part about bomb bird into Nigel was myopic and just a bad idea. Bomb bird into the TNT in front of the sling will blast the stone balls into Nigel. That little difference makes 188k+ almost a given, and 190k+ MUCH more possible.

Side note: DON’T aim at the lower TNT. If that one explodes first, it deflects the balls so they frequently miss Nigel, which truly sucks after a great 1st shot. :)

Some tips which I hope to be helpful. Yellow bird as in the video. Hit at a point that the falling stones will not get destroyed, but stay on the red platform. You will find the hitting point after 3-4 attempts. If there is no debris remaining on any red platform, there is no need to wait, restart. If there is any debris then be patient and wait. Either the marmosets will destroy the debris or the debris will destroy the marmosets. Patience is the key at this level. As all marmosets are gone high arc the bb to the nest of Nigel. Booooom…

This is a crazy one, when going for the feather. If you try to take out the level first, you may only get around 63%.

Toss the tuna can so it bounces off the lower life preserver on the far right next to Nigel.. it should rest on the monkey, or fall below.. the eagle will do the rest.

And they do that themselves bouncing in the debris left by yellow bird. I did not have to use the black bird. I threw it at the Boss. and all the non jumping marmos were in the the final Boss explosion. I must be a slow learn to just figure that out now . roflmbo

I had the same thing happen to me twice now. It looks as if I am getting points for the leftover birds, but it (as in many other levels, like the golden anchor) stops counting before all of the destruction has been counted. With the 3-birder, the white bomber bobs around in the water as all of the debris is falling and the counting goes on, hence my 187. there were still things falling out of the sky when it started counting my spare bird bonus, then my battery died, to much waiting for the Marmies to commit sepiku.

I’ve used the TNT and the big crane payload method with +- 1K difference.

@TomPuss Hmm. Perhaps they’ve felt the guiding paw of evolution? :)

For me, primate death depends on debris quantity & type. Stone blocks are best. One can kill both marmosets. Planks/stone balls kill one, but not both. Wood is useless. Also nice are the stone planks that fall to form a flat-topped triangle in the center. The left can hurt a marmoset, but always breaks. The right can kill both, eventually.

Best case, both marmosets slip and fall off a platform, then bash their furry heads trying to jump back up.

As far as score, I did 100 runs with yellow into either TNT. Then I did 50 more aiming bomb bird above the hanging blocks. It took 40 attempts to get a 2-birder, but the score was abysmal. Perhaps my birds weren’t counted, like you and @stephanie-plum I’d really like to know what @HKG did.

I just had a “duh” moment. Of course, first bird up top to drop the stones, then send bomb bird to TNT. Still took a while to break 190k.

I vary the timing of the first bird depending on where the marmosets first jump to. If one lands in the center, I do like video so that stones drop on that marmoset. It may not kill him, but he cushions the stones so they do not break right away, instead they are hopefully left for a marmoset to slip on later. If a marmoset does not land in the center, wait for one to land on left platform, then sent yellow bird up. GL!

I’ve been able to duplicate this self-destruction, also on a 1st gen ipad running ios5.
The big marmosets randomly slip off the platforms after landing on them, they end up falling right down to the ground & get stuck underneath, so every time they jump they hit the platform or even some of the crates & planks underneath & get damaged. There’s no debris on the platforms to make them lose their balance, they just slide off.

Tried to grab a pic of one falling, you can sort of see it – http://angrybir.de/1j9R1Ci

The 1st marmoset self-destructing, caught under the right platform – http://angrybir.de/1j9Re8s

Followed by the 2nd marmoset the same way –
http://angrybir.de/1joS2LS

Final score was 198k, you can clearly see the 4 remaining birds – http://angrybir.de/1j9RrbE

Out of 15 attempts only 1 failed, meaning after 15 min nothing had happened so I reset. Other 14 tries gave me scores ranging from 186k-198k.
The timing really varies. For the 1st marmoset to go, I’ve seen it happen in 40 sec, or take up to 4 minutes.
Total time for both marmosets to go has varied from 3-9 minutes.
Most of the time they were caught under the right platform.

@AMslimfordy if this is a glitch unique to not only a device but also an old OS, I’m not sure about posting my score? Doesn’t seem fair somehow.

@AMSlimFordy FYI, I ran this level through 5 days of auto-testing on PC. I ran 7,244 attempts at 5 min. per. If points accrued, it took a screenshot. I had 103 instances of a marmoset hitting a box for 440-580, and 32 where another box fell for 2250. I think it’s a safe bet this won’t happen on PC.

You may be right, of course, but given the frequency which @Karen68 and gramlord encountered this, and the absence of reports/scores from every other OS/platform. IMO there’s just not enough data yet to prove it either way.

Admittedly, I’m no ios expert. I don’t see how an older device/os version could even cause this. If I install Rio on ios5 and compare the code to a copy on ios7, aren’t they identical? Put another way, Is there anything about how ios interacts with Rio that could affect AB physics?

It just seems odd that deep in ios5 lies a line of code that sometimes lowers the coefficient of friction for a marmoset’s paw. :)

In ~1200 attempts, I got 2050-6910 damage about 3% of the time. 33.8k/1 dead marmoset was .04%. 2 marmos could be possible, but iOS5’s 93% success rate is just nuts in comparison. Based on my PC tests above, I don’t think it’s possible on that platform.

@mvnla2 In 200 attempts, all I got was 3 instances of a marmoset damaging himself. Every ~50 attempts, within 30 seconds of reset, the left marmoset jumps from platform 1 to 3 (1=far left, 5=far right) and his tail clips the wooden box to the left of platform 3; for 440-580 points. I got this to happen 3 times. Each time I let it run for 20 min. with no additional point accrual.

I’ve noticed when these marmos jump from one low platform to another, i.e. 1 to 3, 3 to 5, they will infrequently take damage from items or debris beyond the left edge of the #3 platform, but not the right. (curious note, with debris left of platform 3, jumping from 1-3 will eventually hurt them. Jumping from 5 to 3, they’ll bounce off harmlessly. Debris on the right side never hurts them.)

BTW, I think the points above 190k come from the destruction of the concrete balls. I could be wrong, and frequently am, but every time I’m able to get most of the balls destroyed, my score is higher. Just a thought. One of the best ways to help with the ball destruction is to hit the wood plank on the upper right to bring down the concrete blocks. This leaves the TNT available to destroy a few on the second shot. Placement of the second shot is also a factor.
All this will be mute once everyone gets the zero birders.

Rat is right about those balls being key to 190k+. I was stuck at 184k until I stopped firing bomb bird directly into Nigel. Neat idea on the wood plank. If nothing else, it makes them fall with less damage on them, so they last longer.

I’ve had the last YB appear to be uncounted a few times as well, but my scores were roughly what they should have been, so hopefully it’s just the 10,000 bird points graphic being skipped?

I’ve had the explosion stop half way through, the structure and all remaining marmosets just disappear into thin air!
Which isn’t helping my current appalling score………

First, short of a zero birder, you need all the marmosets to die on the first shot to attain a 190k+ score. After my first shot I’ve had high scores that resulted in low final scores and low scores that resulted in high final scores. Other than clearing the marmosets, I don’t think your score after one bird is super important. What I have seen make a difference is how many concrete balls you can left. They don’t self destroy after you kill Nigel. You must destroy them with your second shot. To this end, I do two things.

1. Don’t explode the TNT behind the blocks. Leave it to destroy concrete balls on the second shot. I shoot my first shot in a high arc as the hanging blocks are approaching the far left. Then I activate at an angle to hit the wood support under the blocks on the far right wall. This leaves the TNT intact. (Plus I find it more fun) You also get fairly consistent clears on the first bird with this approach.

2. Shoot Bomb bird in such a way as to accelerate the balls. They will disintegrate when they hit anything if you get them moving fast enough. The upper level balls that are moving slower in a high arc will be destroyed by that TNT you left earlier. My favorite approach to accelerating the balls is to shoot Bomb bird just under the upper green platform with the TNT on it. Activate just prior to hitting the TNT.

*Word of warning: If your not perfect with your position on the second shot a couple of bad things can happen. You can destroy too many balls and not have one left to kill Nigel. Ouch! Or you can have the balls fly in a direction where they don’t kill Nigel. Ooops! Practice the shot. You’ll find the sweet spot. Good luck from the “Space Rat”.

You can also have to much destruction after the first bird: https://www.angrybirdsnest.com/members/bernersenn/album/picture/9229/

For what it’s worth I had 18k of self destruction on iPad 3 iOS 7.1
Some debris fell on the lower platforms, but the sneaky marmosets crushed it without slipping off.
I’ve played this level literally hundreds of times, and it’s the first time it’s happened.

A strange thing happened when I was playing this level last night. I killed all of the marmosets, but the door did not open to let me shoot into the cage. I waited and waited. Still nothing. Then I decided to simply take my white bombing bird and explode it into the door. The door did not open, but the entire platform disintegrated just the same as it does when the doors do open. The problem is that it changed my score to zero then. Why did that happen?

it’s okay because I played for a while and eventually won back a score slightly better than I had before. But I have just never seen this going back to zero behavior.
