Angry Birds Rio High Dive Walkthrough Level #8

Our strategy for High Dive Level #8 is to aim the White bird for the nearest floating structure, but underwater. Release her egg bomb rather deep in the water so it pops up and breaks the planks above. Use Big Brother to clean up the mess as needed. The score in the video below is 122,800.

You can get better scores by maximising the score with the first shot. To do this you want to hit the left float of the floating structure and have the green canopy destroyed before the fallout from above, so more damage is done to the debris in the water.
This is what is seen in the video, but the score after the first bird is only 46k, which is unlucky.
I found by going very deep with WB and releasing the egg bomb almost as soon as I was over the life belts I got more luck. Generally scores of >50k and >55k occasionally.

@SKinley — Anyone else with scores in the mid 30’s or higher — There must be some other trick involved here. I can’t even get to 130K following @pauliboy‘s advice.

I used a different strategy on this level, with still some potential for extra points

First Bird really steep down into the water. When it’s floating upwards, drop the egg. The powerboost shoots the bird up, hitting the plank and falling down (takes a little practise). The TNT swings to take down the top right structure. Leaving you with a floating egg just left of the little raft…

Now what? That depends. Sometimes falling debrisfrom the right hits the raft, either pusing it into the egg or making the left pole from the canopy fall over onto the egg. With a big KABOOM as a result. Now finish with Red as in the video.

The other scenario is that the egg still floats. Now the trick is to shoot Red so that he lands on the egg. And thus taking the egg with him straight into the bottom structure. Again KABOOM :-)

And to top it off, don’t wait to long with the second shot. As long as the first bird is floating in the water, it will continue to rack up points when it hits debris. Including debris falling as a result of Reds hard work

Oh, if you miss the egg with Red, no worries. Most of the time debris will push the raft onto the egg

@tinus, you underestimate your strat. Followed the strat, took a long time before the egg didn’t explode against the upper objects. At least it worked. Thanks

I did like @tinus, a steep dive, and going very deep, but I didn’t think about maximizing the egg. Still, I managed to do okay. Top score for the moment, still lots of points to be had.

@bonneypattycat I improved to 135k following your video strat. Thanks! Seems like I got better results when the WB destroyed the left pontoon under the floating structure, and the sandbag from the top right, after causing more damage, floated out of the way of the second shot.

Nice score @bonneypattycat and great video!!! Thanks for sharing. I for one appreciate all the time you’ve taken to share your videos. You have been on a roll ;-)
I used a different first bird shot going low to the bouncer below. WB comes up to hit the bottom left pontoon while the egg goes up to hit the plank/tnt. It pretty much has the same first bird outcome as yours. I think it’s helpful if WB destroys the left pontoon under the raft as @halliginsb pointed out below. It gets it out of the way for the Red bird.
Your Red bird shot was the most helpful all though I couldn’t get it to do as good as yours. Hitting that bottom horizontal plank at the tip so that he then goes just under it seemed to be the key for him to rack up the points as he keeps bumping into the various broken pieces.

@lesleyg I was making videos for a short while, but it sure did take a lot of time. I can’t record directly from my unbroken iPad, so I have to monkey around with mirroring to my Macbook. A real pain in the arse. I also had a slow Internet connection and spent too much time uploading. Got a faster connection now, so maybe when there are updates to ABO or Rio, I will try to get more videos again.

@bonneypattycat thanks for the great video. Used your method for 139k.
The white bird fell onto the left pontoon and & I had almost complete destruction of the raft.
I didn’t fling the 2nd bird right away, and Terence went slightly lower than in your vid, through the wooden support of the right structure instread of hitting the end of the lowest plank, but Terence broke that plank immediately as he moved up. Then I guess I was lucky with the collapse.
Screenshot to follow.

I tried a variety of approaches and what I ended up with is the same as the video with one difference. I found my scores are higher if I release big red as soon as the egg has headed up to hit the upper planks. That way the lower right structure was already crumbling when the top right structure was hit with the swinging TNT. Seemed to give me better destruction.

This is definitely a rinse and repeat level, so any few additional points go a long way.

Also using a slightly modified video approach in tossing Matilda at a low trajectory above the waterline and activating to do as much damage to the floating raft items as possible. Egg bomb pops out of water to take out the upper structure to release the TNT on the swing as shown in the video.

Big Red Bird tossed similar to video but tossed through closest remaining debris from raft to get those additional points before crashing onto the lowest pillar of the far structures.

Slowly improving on my high score a couple hundred points at a tome using this strategy ~ we’ll see where it tops out.

Used the strategy described in my post above to earn the Puppy. Unfortunately I didn’t have the keyboard close at hand and wasn’t quick enough to grab it in time to catch a screenshot of the level of destruction after the 2nd shot. The destruction was however quite similar to that shown in the great video posted by @comex666 to whom I send my Congratulations for a very impressive High Score!

@mvnla2 – okay here we go again. Just got a bug on this one – the screen froze and the game crashed – no extra points, it just crashed. I couldn’t get a screenshot on this one because it crashed pretty quick after the screen froze. I did go to the Bugs and Glitches forum and mentioned AB Seasons High Dive Level 8.

@GypsyBird — I think a lot of levels are buggy, but I’m not the one collecting info about bugs. Good you mentioned it in Bugs and Glitches. You might want to mention @AMSLimfordy in the future for bugs.
I am the one who keeps track of self-destroying and unstable levels, and sometimes they overlap some, especially in this episode.

I just found that here’s another way to get 130K+ scores. If you zoom out all the way, you’ll see 2 lifebuoies on the bottom below the raft. Shoot WB in about 45 degrees into the water and drop the egg so that it lands on the left corner of the left lifebuoy. The buoy will make it bounche all the way up hitting the plank and WB gets a push into the raft. Best results when WB hits the left barrel of the raft. Then RB to finish, hoping for enough debrispoints. Scores normally should be around 127/128K, but 130K or above are possible too

Joining today’s group of flingers who used @comex666 method and just squeaked by for a puppy. I found that breaking both pontoons under the floating platform was key to getting lots of destruction points.

Last night I just knew some puppies would find new homes & I’m so ….. close I can smell that cute little puppy breath, but I’m just missing something with the 2nd shot. Is it possible to shoot too soon? I noticed an oh ever so slight pause in @comex666 video before the shot but somewhere I thought I read it was important to get the shot off quickly. I think now I’m just too frustrated : -(

There’s still 90-minutes left in the Challenge and I’m sure you can get that wiggly roly-poly puppy @justpast40 ~~ just keep flinging and don’t give up! I’m not sure it makes a great deal of difference if the 2nd shot is fires right away or if there’s a slight delay ~ I believe I’ve gotten pretty good scores both ways. I think the key may be that Big Red reaches the far structures and causes their collapse at approximately the sane time as the swinging TNT causes the collapse of the upper right structure so their debris can fall together to help with the overall destruction. I think it is probably equally important that both the 1st and 2nd shots destroy as much of the raft and its contents as possible.

Know I’m cheering you on !!!

I use the white bird to destroy the vertical plank to the far right holding the upper structure. To do this I keep white bird above waterlevel and release the egg so that it pops the planks holding the tnt. Red bird through the left lower side of the floating structure and into the main structure from below
