Thank you so much for these walkthroughs. My only gripe is all these twits that post their scores (which they wouldnt be able to get without this site) but don’t say how they got them!!! What’s with that?

I agree that I definitely prefer when people explain how they arrived at their score. Helping the community right?

1 bird solution: low trajectory! Aim for gap just under large palm leaf –> break through square box and hit long thin board (one that touches near base of uppermost flower). Takes luck but when you get the right shot you will see ‘avalanche-like’ kickback of almost the whole structure which should fall to left and take out first monkey (under ice blocks). Very luck based… sometimes need 2 birds.

You can also get level 4-2 w/ one bird by simply breaking the long thin board that touches near the base of the uppermost flower. I’ve found that if I shoot the first yellow bird high up on the cliffside at the far right it will bounce off and down and land on that thin horizontal board. When it breaks everything falls and breaks.

@Phat59 @Josephine — Thought Phat’s strat might be easier, but so far I haven’t even come close. Could really use more details about exactly how you aim the shot, where you accelerate, and where it hits. So far YB just rolls down the cliff and doesn’t even threaten the horizontal plank.
Josephine — It sounds like you are going for a direct hit? The accuracy of that seems incredibly difficult.
Back to @skoldpadda‘s strat which is merely incredibly difficult, but at least seems doable.

@mvnla2, i don’t know if I can be of any help, the moon shot is really like the lottery to me. I can say it was straight with a marginal angle, I’am sorry but I feel very useless not being able to be more specific. If I won’t forget I will try again tomorrow and hopefully tell you more details.

I had my doubts about skolpadda’s method after repeating it about 50 times with several marmosets remaining each time. But then I must have hit something just right and everything collapsed giving me over 113K. I seldom have an “oh my God” moment in Angry Birds, but I was so surprised I yelled something that I can’t repeat on this family-friendly website.

Maybe I am just doing things wrong, but I don’t know how the shot high into the cliff is even possible.

Hey Guys, would you mind checking this out and letting me know what you think. The link in the previous sentence links to a comment which links to a secret post. If you take the time, thanks. If not, no sweat.

@doctonynyc I saw your question about the high shot (revisiting the walkthrough because of the challenge). It is possible if you use the ‘shot to the moon’ I’am not sure if this is the correct name. But if you launch the yellow bird straight up and accelerate immediately it will get there. I find this a very difficult shot and managed only once and didn’t get total destruction.

Thank you @skolpadda!

Since the challenge began, I have managed a few scores over 105k with one bird. I fried numerous boost points, from early to late. I consistently get better results with a midpoint boost. Zoomed out on my iPad, the mark is usually around the high white mountain peak, on it’s right side. I think I will walk away happy with 112k. GL!

Here is a screen shot of my favored trajectory/boost. Didn’t get the left side on this attempt, but trajectory Is very similar to more successful attempts.

Thanks so much for posting the screenshot, @bonneypattycat — it made me realize that my trajectory was too flat. After adjusting my aim, I think I broke the wooden square and thin horizontal plank at least a dozen times and started losing faith in the method until one shot finally half worked. Since then I had 3-4 near successes but there was always a monkey leftover — either the rightmost one or the one in the glass tower…grrrrrr, this level is driving me crazy!

This is almost impossible. If I shoot the first bird like the video tells me I hit the flower each and every time!!!

I used three birds, hit first to cut through flower and low to take out first monkey, second got as low and close as possible to second ground monkey, dropped egg and all gone except last monkey in bottom right corner…it helps if the stone blocks low down have been remove as they were for me as it gives you your third bird shot a chance to go low and take out last monkey with out the concrete being in the way, plus more debris ;-)

Try getting all the flowers present in this level, that is 3, which might give you 9k atleast. Also try experimenting with White Bird, by dropping the egg at diffrent positions.

I suppose I’m howling at the moon and no one is listening, since this post is probably over a year after the previous post :) While the 1-bird strat is possible, I have yet to achieve it after two days and probably 2 or 3 thousand attempts.

For any latecomers to AB Rio, like me, use the walkthrough video as a guide. Then, here’s a hint: hit the horizontal cement beam, through the flower, dead-on so that most everything collapses and is pushed to the right. Your score should be 20-25k. Shoot the 2nd bird like the video ensuring that, after dropping the egg-bomb, the spent bird ricochets and takes out the horizontal stone beam. With a lot of luck, the entire structure will collapse for a possible 2-bird score in the 106-115k range.

Otherwise, if your running score is at least 70k, use the 3rd bird to take out that pesky marmoset in the lower right corner. This should give you a very repeatable score of 100-105k. Much more fun than going for the frustrating 1-bird, which is not very repeatable, at all!

Thank you for the pointers @dseufert Muk! Just wanted to let you know you are not the only latecomer to Rio. I only started playing the original game July ’12, and am just now starting Rio, and hopefully soon Seasons.

I did the same to use the ABN video as the guide. Thanks for the tip @dseufert of hitting the stone plank with the first bird. Added a few extra points. Could not obtain the one bird solution as mentioned above. Always has the right monkey remaining.
