Angry Birds Rio Carnival Upheaval Walkthrough Level 20 (8-5)

Our strategy for Carnival Upheaval level 8-5 is to launch Blu into the top-right structure, pushing it right onto the TNT below. Fire the Red bird straight ahead into the top of the first tower, pushing it right and clearing all remaining marmosets. The score in the video below is 72,090.

Have you checked out the video when you click “Hidden Papaya Alert” link above?

i’ve tried and tried and tried but i still cannot get 3 stars!
I’ve done exactly what the video says and my highest score is just over 77,000 and i’m still on one star.

Please refer to the v1.3.3 release post:

It seems the 3-star minimum for Carnival Upheaval 8-5 has been raised. It was previously 65,000, but now I have 1 star at 78,000. Rovio did respond to our inquiry saying, “Yeah. That Carnival level limit is not correct. Will be fixed. Sorry about that”. If anyone can find the new limit we are curious (note, it may be impossible).

This bug has been fixed in the v1.4.0 (Smugglers’ Plane) update.

Go to the main page of your app and click the ” i ” in the bottom left corner. What version does it say? Should read v1.x.x.

Um. Have you scanned for viruses and/or hackers lately? You seem to have a picture of people doin the dirty superimposed over the menu thumbnails. Seeing it on an iPhone. (no need to post — FYI only)

Sorry, it’s not necessarily on your page but appears after the YouTube video shows for 8-5. I can send a screenshot if you need.

Yeah, we are aware of that, but those thumbnails are populated by YouTube and all videos / thumbs have to meet their community guidelines. We have no control over it. I agree the thumbnail looks bad, but it’s actually an innocent video of a kid accidentally kicking his Dad you know where. It’s received 66,790,064 views. Regardless of it’s innocence, I still agree the thumbnail looks bad and I sure wish YouTube would:

a. Allow us to disable that feature if need be.
b. Remove irrevelvant if they do appear
c. ONLY show related movies from your channel (e.g. AngryBirdsNest’s YouTube channel)

3 bird method: Shoot blu into first tower. Shoot red anywhere; the red bird won’t do any damage anyway. Drop the egg from white where needed. White should fly up and hit top structure and ignite tnt.

I got my highest score with the basic strategy of the walkthrough video with a few added tips for higher score. I aimed blues lower then the video to come in at the very top of the skinnier thin stone plank at top far right structure and be sure to tap blues right upon impact with the idea to have him knock everything over edge and cement planks get all four feathers for extra points and ignite tnt. His body will roll backwards and take out middle little monkey hanging on stone and the bigger middle monkey on top goes as well (but not always). You should have 37K to 38K at this point. If you don’t get bigger middle monkey you can still get a good above average score. I even had only one monkey left after first shot so a one birdie is quit possible. Then I aim second birder a bit lower then video as well to come in at the top of middle empty wood square. If top middle monkey is still alive you may want to aim the second bird a little bit higher to ensure you get him.

@lesleyg, I have been trying your way for quite a while now, but this time the birds are against me and refuse to behave properly, my best so far is 75160, I hope I can get it higher.

@lesleyg, thanks for the encouraging words…this is one of those levels that keeps giving scores that make no sense for the amount of destruction or a higher score with almost no destruction. WEEEIIIIIIRRRRDD!!!

I paid attention to strategy of @lesleyg.
I use the third bird for different one.
@lesleyg is right and thinks that more than 37K are necessary for the first bird.

Thanks for the great tips @lesleyg! I followed what you suggested & used 3 birds. With the 1st shot you really need to clear everything off the top platform. I started resetting even if there were only a couple of blocks left.
2nd bird as you suggested through the top of the middle hollow square. The large marmoset on top of the 2nd tower survived without the tower leaning over to the right, so I lobbed the white bird to come down into the gap to the right of the marmoset & it ricocheted into the wooden “steps” leading up to the top platform for extra points.
I’ve tried lobbing the white bird in even after all the marmosets are gone for the points but it has to be a fast shot as this level likes to end quickly, my best score this way was 78k.

@karen68 – you’re welcome!!! I’m glad my tips were able to help you…as I mentioned above, I’m having no luck today! I keep hitting 78K – 79K scores ;-( It seems you and others are getting a few extra thousand points off the third birdie but my Big Marmoset always dies, lol ;-) and as you said, there isn’t much time to throw the third one in anyway. I even got a few 43K scores off the first birdie and one for 45K with zero blocks remaining up top but still no improvement ;-( Oh well another fling another day…Nice job ;-D

Thanks again @lesleyg, 82k with 3 birds using your tips.
The 1st bird has to clear out the top platform, I had one small plank left. I didn’t activate him, just let him do his thing after hitting the stone.
2nd through the top of the middle square. At this point I had 2 marmosets left, the big guy & the one down in the gap. The middle part didn’t lean much so I was able to lob Matilda right down into the gap.

New top score with a strat similar to AngryAdvisor, except that the largest bird survived after the second shot, so I launched the white bird as low as possible just in front of it, and bombed just before it hit, taking out most of the middle two structures.

It’s easy… try to hit at the base of the top most tower on left with 1st bird. It will fall on the left and blast all TNT. 2nd bird will hit low at first tower on right and 3rd one will destroy remaining monkeys and few rocks (try to drop bomb on the ladder structure).

im thinking blue off the trampoline , barrel roll toward first tower , slapping the top of it, and i’ve been able to fling pieces up to the top right killing at least one monkey…. i’ve yet to one bird it this way, but if anyone wants to try a new way i think this has possibilities. 61,960 current high with this method

i also got blue ona bounce to come down to the right of the rightmost tower, where he slapped it down the side and i think fell on the tnt… only have had that happen once tho, and i failed birds 2 and 3

@tmax I tried bouncing the red bird off the trampoline, but not much excitement. I thought that would give the bird more ‘oomph’. think I got 76k with this method. 77k with @lesleyg ‘s strategy.

I had one play where there was only 1 marmoset left and doing the math would have given me 84320 with none left.

@lesleyg strat works fine, but in my case, would not yield above 79k.
Mine (83.1k) is as follows:
1. Lob to bottom of 5-step staircase, nearly missing big monkey.
2. Same as video.
3. Pretty obvious then: drop egg over remaining debris, rebound to far structure, setting off TNT.
