Angry Birds Rio Golden Beachball Star Bonus Walkthrough Level 22

This is our walkthrough video for Angry Birds Rio Golden Beachball Star Bonus Level #22. The level is unlocked by earning 30 stars in Golden Beachball. Our strategy is to fling the Black bird through the small path in the bottom-left side of level. There are two 3,000 point bonus flowers there, and the resulting explosion will clear the bottom half of the level. Arc the White bird high, bombing the tower on the left side and ricocheting into the wall at the extreme top-right. Cutting through the rope will release the remaining marmosets, rolling them to their demise. The score in the video below is 123,420.

First bird same as in the video. White bird straight to the train. Drop the egg in front of it. The withe bird will cut the rope. The train go down and the blue tank will explode to clear the left structure. Give a bit more destruction.

first shot like video ,throw it so it just misses the upper part of the entrance,and it should come out goig further right ,leaving a good opening ,for white bird ,lob just as in the video ,but you want to bug out into the cave and set of tnt,you want a score around 55/60 at that point ,then throw boomerang up high backward so it comes in over or threw flag and branch ,that should get u in the high 130,sor better ,..good luck

Very nice strat! Thank you @xebic88. I would add that on the white bird, go for more ice and don’t worry about hitting the structure on the left. When everything comes down with the green bird it will take out that structure. My best scores came with 28k after black bird, 55 – 60k after white bird and the 141k after green. One bird left.

Thanks for the sweet strat @xebic88! I had the three stars but slghtly below average – with this one I went over a bit. Loading scores later. I kept working on strategy to get to the TNT in the cave but couldn’t quite get to it. I wasn’t sure the action of the Fruit Loop Toucan would knock out all of the left structure – until I actually tried it. Yay!

Im glad this has helped :)_…I have been trying to to find those few extra thousand ,and i did manage a better score now at 146,380 by throwing the bomb bird over the first structure ,landing at the bottom of waterfall ,if the water /glass bits fly right u will still get the 2 bonuses in the grass to left of where the bomb lands under structure, worth 3k a peice.a decent score is 30 k ,and the next shot into cave ,and so on like other strat ….
I think it will only be a matter of time before some1 gets lucky on first shot getting the tnt with debrie , leaving a cleanup that can be done with white bird,if you do get that lucky on first shot ,u can get the second shot where u want it best by shooting it out horizontal,and dropping egg half way to rock ,ends up doing what third shot does ..jumping the gun just a tad ..Good luck

Thanks for the strat @xebic88 I was so close to getting an extra thousand but boomerang planted himself in the glass up top and didn’t roll back down the waterfall crushing the remaining debris on the ground below. He really needs to land on the back end of the train and roll gently onto the glass whilst cutting the rope to ensure he tumbles back down. I’ll keep trying ;)

Thank you @xebic88. After hours & hours on this I finally got 146,050 – in the Top 10 for now ;-). I kept trying the 1st shot until I destroyed enough ice blocks that I had between 32k-33k even though all 3 marmosets remained standing on left structure. FYI, I let it detonate on its own. All the points were from the bonus points hiding in the bushes, the ice blocks & the 1 marmoset behind the waterfall.

For me, the 2nd & 3rd shots were difficult. About 1/3 of the time I didn’t clear left structure with WB & almost as often even though clearing the left side, I just missed getting into the cave to set off TNT, but this time all worked & the total was a little more than 58k, so right in line with your post. If going for these higher scores, I suggest others consider restarting if less than 55k at this point with just the train remaining.

The 3rd shot was the most difficult of all the shots for me. On Android phone, it wasn’t high & backward that got me where I needed to be. I found shooting high & backward didn’t get me far enough to the leafy branch to release the train holding the marmosets. On my device, it needed to be much more to the upper left before tapping to reverse. It was almost as if I were aiming for 11:00.

Thanks again.

The third green bird performed the start that was just before that gum always melted under the reverse.
If I splash a bird and tap a screen immediately, it touches restrictions of the top right corner.
I can spurt in the distance so that a tap after having spurted is fast.
It is very simple if used.

@xebic88, thanks for the strat. @thee-michelle, thanks for the way-to-use the green bird. A classic reverse shot lets the bird go down on its way, now he doesn’t. Your pictures are always very helpfull.

I found good way for extra points is to shoot the last boomerang bird in such a way that it just clears the upper structure bit still release it. You want the bird to roll back down the waterfall, and it adds quite a few points as much as 5k. This might be key for the really high scores. My current high score of 146k it did not roll back and I recon close to 150k is possible

Nice score @sunshine ;-)))
I agree with @rocklands in that 150K+ is possible…I just got 147400 with the added points by GB rolling down the waterfall however, on the first bird, I got one of the flowers hiding in the bush but missed the left most one. If I had gotten it too, that would have put me at 150K+. Now I’ll have to keep trying, lol ;-)

Yippie!!! I just improved to Top Score with 148210 ;-)
I must thank @xebic88 for the strat of course!!!
For the first bird I was trying it both ways…going through the bushes and also over the top to land at bottom of waterfall. I ultimately got my best score by going through the bushes to get all those extra points because I kept missing one of the flowers. I aimed up high through the bush so that Bomber lands at the base of the waterfall and then I manually explode him. I think my score was around 32K.
Second bird, just over the left structure to land near where the waterfall base had been and “bug out” in the cave. This was a great tip xebic88 ;-) My score was around 60K-61K at this point.
Now for Boomerang Bird…I missed this shot a lot…I ended up doing it like @thee-michelle screenshot shows. It looked a little odd at first but once I tried it, it really worked well! He also ended up rolling back down the hill for the extra points. I didn’t realize I was approaching top score so my screenshot really only shows how I sent Boomerang but at least you can see the angle of the shot and when I tapped him:

Thanks for the tips xebic88 and thee-michelle ;-)))

Used same strat as xebic88 except that I found that letting first bird go as deep as possible into ice bottom yielded best scores. Also, you want 3rd bird to roll back down hill which gives a few more points than just braking ice at top behind cart/train/truck or what ever that thing is.

Thanks @xebic88 for the post on your strategy. Was able to get all three birds to work but the challenge was getting boomerang bird to roll down the hill for the extra points. Found that if I activated it just before it would go off the screen when zoomed out the chances of a roll were increased.

Same strategy as in @xebic88 video.
One important tip: for Bomb, try to land as low as possible to maximize damages and take the two stacked barrels on the right.

Here is the final result.

And this is the highscore screenshot.

All the screenshots are also available in high res here in one set.

Great strat and video posted by @xebic88 some 10 years ago! I used it for 153k using three birds. I noticed a lot of points came from the boomerang bird as it rolled to the left down the water fall and dropped to the pool below.

I don’t know how to post a pic on here of my last shot. I’ve worked this level for 5 days. It’s just about the same as @AngryAdvisor pic she posted. Sadly I took the shot and looked at the television so I missed what happened. I was able to look down in time to snap a pic before the stars came up. Almost everything is cleared here.

@coffeeking, on the website of abn click on your name, about right above. Your own page opens, then you click on ‘Album’. Here you can upload your picture, give it a title. When done, you see a page with the links to your picture (lower link, I always use). Then you copy this link and paste them simply into your comment. Voila, done. I had the same question once. Success.

Bomb bird through the bushes, white bird over the left to get into the cave and boomerang bird up and backwards to get the wagon to go over the cliff. Pretty much as described by several people, such as @coffeeking @lesleyg and @xebic88. Hope I gave credit to the right people as I read a lot of the posts here to get the strategy that got me a surprising score of 151.460 after hours of flinging.
Or was this score the response to the whine I had on yesterday’s puppy parade that I could not score well enough to join?
