Angry Birds Rio Rocket Rumble Walkthrough Level #13

Our strategy for Rocket Rumble Level #13 is to send the Blue Birds at the base of the main structure. Then drop the Bomb bird in the crevasse, so that it ignites the detonating cord below. The score in the video below is 161,480.

That was a bit of a shocker ! I was a few hundred over the average and came back to get the feather. First bird same as video, nothing much happened and there was a lot of debris in the middle, went to clear that so I could make a ‘V’ shot with the Mighty Eagle and all hell broke loose. I saw the score rack up and didn’t press for the Sardine Can because I thought it might improve my score a bit. Happy to post a screen shot if needed (if I can remember how, not usually in this position).

You mean that a one birder is possible @jshfire ? Because you can hardly reach 164K with two.

No, it was a two birder, I was going for the Feather and not paying much attention to the first shot, it was a bad one and left lots of debris in the middle, I didn’t pay too much attention to the second shot either thinking I’d messed things up to get 100%. I was only just above average after a lot of attempts which to me were a lot better shooting, this was pure dumb luck in my opinion.

I’ve never knowingly used a power up, I’d be happier if they weren’t there. I’ve never heard of the free power ups before, I’d played the level for a while and managed a decent score, went on to get three stars on all levels and was going back to get the feather on all levels, this score was on the 3rd try to get 100%. Sorry I can’t be of more help.

There was a power up gift on level 1 and it was positioned right where you need to hit to light the first two fuses.

@mvnla2, I’m pretty sure they appear the first time you play the level *connected to internet* and until you actually pickup the gift. I typically play on my iPad with wifi off to avoid ads. I know I played level 1 for a while and then bought the Mighty Eagle package and went back to collect feathers with wifi on. I was frustrated with that level and remember thinking to myself “figurers, I get a high score when I’m not even trying!”

@amslimfordy @emider @mvnla2 and all of you… my point here being that until this level I think I didn’t realize that “gift” was adding points – I saw them more as the National Geographic links or simply Rovio Store links. Anyway, it is possible that I have already posted scores that include the 3k bonus without actually noticing. Since I don’t use power ups, this presents a problem :( How can I know?

Dear team-mates,

dear @amslimfordy @kpnanny @mvnla2,

if my opinion should be of interest I would suggest that we accept scores with the +3K gift (or present).

Anyhow a top performance is needed to get into the top range, and since the gifts appear once in a while and not only one single time per level everybody has the chance to do so.

The problem is like @kpnanny described. Most of us simply didnt know about this fact in the beginning, so how to change a score in retrospect…?

Good luck in collecting gifts.

My only advice is to go through all levels again and again, three-staring them and then just simply advancing to the next level.

@emider I turned my wi-fi on and played levels you listed since I saw your post yesterday. Not one present appeared so far. When they did appear to me a while back, it was directly after I purchased Mighty Eagle. Did you purchase anything from Rovio recently? Also, do presents appear to you in other Rio episodes?

I’ll throw in my 2 cents re: scores with extra $3K. To knowingly enter them feels a bit like cheating, IMO. They are not that easy to miss when you start the level. We’re playing on honor system and not entering scores achieved using power-ups and to me this is just another variation of a p/u.

Thanks @slimfordy … I was mostly worried about my OWN scores. As @fenikus said, it kind of feels like cheating. On the other hand, the Santa Hat glitch and the spinning flower glitch in Easter Eggs resulted in awesome scores for some people and are considered to be valid(I was too late for the Hat). And as @emider says, I can’t change my scores in retrospect because I don’t know where it happened. I WILL say, it has nothing to do with purchasing something. I already had the eagle and haven’t purchased anything else. I have had them appear 5-6 times in a row on a level, or not at all. At no point did I actually attempt to get the bonus, because, as I said, I didn’t know it was a bonus. That big sign pops up in front of whatever happens and I just didn’t see it until I was reading here – there are other 3K bonus items on the screen, after all… It would be interesting to know if there is some type of game play which causes them to appear, since that would make it a skill to obtain them as opposed to luck.

It is now April 2014, about 3 months since these posts about “The gift” bomb. For the past few months have been replaying the older levels in Rio to improve my overall score, no pop up gifts in older level. I just worked my way up to Rocket Rumble a few weeks ago and I NOT once seen any bonus bomb gift in any level for Rocket Rumble (so far).

Now I do remember seeing this “Gift” appear a few times around the holidys and I also think maybe around Super Bowl time? Not sure exactly what dates, but i do remember it was around the holidays. I was also playing over in the regular AB in either the newer Birthday Party levels or maybe Surf and Turf? when I first saw a bonus “Gift” pop up. But I don’t think I have seen them pop up since after the Suoer Bowl.

I think this “gift” might be a one time thing or maybe a marketing thing as they chose to use itt?
I agree, the gift bomb does seem like using a power up, I believe the “gift” is a bonus PU.

I am curious, Has anyone gotten this “gift” recently (into March -April)?
I would like to know if this “Gift stopped popping up, or is it still is the gift ‘that keeps on giving’ and I am just not offered the gift bomb got some reason? Maybe I have my popup blocker on stopping it?

I just scored 165k+ WITHOUT any PU “Gift” bomb and currently in 26th place (as of today).
I have also placed in top 100 (at this time) for all most all other levels of this chapter without the bonus gift.
Just wondering if anyone is still seeing this bonus bomb gift lately.
Happy flinging!

By the way, I have figured out the “gifts”. The just add to your total power ups, so they are not deployed like I thought. Only deployed if one chooses to use a power up.
If I hit a power up, I just reset without playing.

FWIW I think these things simply spawn semi-randomly (or on a timer) whenever a company purchases the “Provided by” ad space from Rovio. When that apparently exclusive license expires, the gifts cease until another advertiser buys the space. Maybe Kraft purchased a 1-year license, and it has expired. The one I got a week ago was from a completely different sponsor. Can’t remember who it was.

These are just a silly marketing gimmick, ergo, they want everyone to see it once or twice. Because of that, it makes no sense for them to only appear on certain preset levels.

Dear @mvnla2, @fenikus, @amslimfordy

first sorry for a bit late reply due to holidays.

Second, I can confirm more levels with a present:

1,3,11, 7th feather, 15th feather, 50th star.

And third, yes it repeats itself, means it will come again after a “certain” time, not only once.

Still, I have no idea which pattern the presents are following. Sometimes they will appear more often, then again not for a week…

But I am now very sure that some of the top scores must be with the extra 3K, since there are levels where I really harvested every crumb and still being around 3K behind the top score…

Great score @hoy49. I’m pretty sure the higher points are from getting more mushrooms and were not from the present at all. The presents were Rovio’s new way of providing powerups not giving 3000 free points. I haven’t been getting the powerup boxes lately on these levels (rovio most likely removed them the last update – the boxes dropping in were rather annoying anyway). The only thing given when the box got destroyed in a level was an extra powerup going to the top and no points were added. The PUs don’t activate unless u click directly on the either. Some players are just lucky enough to get a collapse that takes out more of the little mushrooms. Game play is the same without the present. @admins.

The way things get destroyed must play a big part in this one. I had the large stone square left up top plus 4 or 5 other pieces of debris scattered around. And I didn’t get the 2 mushrooms on the left, but still scored 168k. I’ve scored lower with less debris remaining. Guess the good old crumble factor helped me out.

@karen68. Yes. I’ve said this before that it is often the order of destruction that can yield more points. Also different point come from mushrooms, crystals, wood, glass or ice and cement or metal etc. on a lot of levels I’ve compared screenshots of damage with others and some with more debris left got more points that some with leas debris. Hope that makes sense. I’m typing on my phone so trying to be brief.

Also. The powerup wrapped presents are still around on other Rio levels. They are just random on which levels they show up in day to day. If you get one and capture the powerup then reset to go again the present won’t be there. But it might pop up again later same day depending on how Rovio has it configured. B

I’m thinking that Rovio wants people to start clicking the ‘get free power-ups’ ad banner that pops up from below a screen showing all the levels – then watch a video to get a free power-up. Another way for Rovio to make more money from the games. Marketing frenzy. That is probably why the frequency of the presents slows down after a while.

Pardon my rant, but there’s 52 comments here, and 51 don’t involve RR-13 strategies or tips. These lengthy PU Gift debates appear in other Rio walkthroughs as well. I wish the relevant info would just be added to the FAQ, so all this walkthrough clutter could be avoided. Removed wouldn’t hurt, either :)

PU Gift 101
-PU Gifts can drop on any level. They’re worth 3,000 points.
-ABN can’t police PU Gift-enhanced scores. Keeping your scores “pure” is your responsibility.
-PU Gifts drop frequency is highest in the week following a new Rio episode, then over the next week, the frequency tapers to nothing.
-After that, they rarely drop. This sometimes increases on special occasions; ex: To promote a new/updated Rovio title.
-If you see one. Claim it, then please restart the level, so the 3,000 won’t affect your score.

This I believe levels the playing field a bit…. I have entered one maybe two scores obtained with the present… I know I took screen shots and might have even mentioned in the comments, but not sure.
