Angry Birds Rio Smugglers Plane Walkthrough Level 7 (11-7)

Our strategy for Smugglers’ Plane level 11-7 is to use the Red bird to destroy the cardboard in the bottom-left. This will open a path to fire the Yellow bird horizontally into the vertical stone slab, thus clearing the left side of the level. With the next Yellow bird, score a direct hit on the canisters in the right-hand structure. This should clear all remaining cages. The score in the video below is 91,860.

11-7, 100440 w/2 Birds.. There’s a neat 2 Bird strategy that seems to be making the “headlines” today, I for one thank “ernor63” for sharing it us, that’s a spirit! Bravo!

1st shot – Highly arched r/b targeting the connecting beam joint above the sml wooden block that the 1st and 2nd structures share, ideally aim for the right side of this beam. When correctly hit the first three bird cages are taken out. *See photo*..

2ns shot – An almost vertical y/b targeting the far right structure’s lower two vertical beams, just one pixel above the fire extinguisher’s to hopefully break through the wooden crates behind it. There’s a lot of points to be had over my 100K..

Once again, “ernor63” thanks for the turn on!!

Thanks @marc987 for sharing the method :) I was below average on this level, but got a pretty nice 104k score by using this method.

At first I thought it was impossible, ’cause I couldn’t get the first bird to destroy the buildings on the left, but after several restarts I finally found the right spot where to hit. Then I was struggling with the second bird, I was hitting either too high or too low, but the tower wouldn’t fall.

Restart, restart, restart…then suddenly I got 40k with the first bird and the second bird so that it went through the big crate (next to the fire extinguisher) AND the small crate next to it and everything was falling :D

After a few tries it was actually pretty easy to get 99-103k almost on every try. I like this level and I’ll keep on going for a higher score :D

I’m a bit confused on this challenge. @marc987 suggests an almost vertical second shot and @laurence suggests an almost horizontal path. I’ m having difficulties with the choice since the target eludes me on both suggestions. I’ll start on my second hundred tries to get to average. The first shot is a classic ‘single pixel’ accuracy shot but number 2 is all over the place. Sorry…just whining!

Rank: Fling King with 4525 points
By Lisko (@lisko)Score: 104,950

@mikeinmont – I got my score by aiming the red bird straight up so that its outline barely touches the slingshot, it may take a few times but I’m sure you’ll get it right. The second bird pretty much straight ahead and try to get it to go through those wooden crates behind the fire extinguisher :)

By Stocktoad (@stocktoad)Score: 101,650

@mikeinmont I think @marc987 meant to say almost horizontal, not vertical. By the way, I tried tapping the yellow bird almost immediately to get as close to a horizontal shot as possible, and could not get the shot to work. I needed to aim a little higher so that the tapping point is about halfway to get the destruction needed. Now…..all I have to do is put together a 40,000+ first shot with a good second shot. “Aye, there’s the rub”

Oh, and when you get about 40k after the first shot, just stay calm, breathe, count to ten before aiming the second bird. Try to get it to go through the big box and the small box if you get there, you’ll be just watching while everything’s falling down :)

@mikeinmont whine all you want, that 2nd shot is a tough one. @lisko has the aiming right for the 1st shot, for the 2nd shot (I’m zoomed in for both, I find it easier to aim) I put the pointy head of the yellow bird at the top of the beautiful blue sky out the window, the feathers on his head go part way up the window frame. Let him fly, I’m accelerating about half way there, but I gotta tell you it’s a very small spot to hit to break the boxes behind the stone & extinguisher. My success rate isn’t great, play around with it a bit & maybe you’ll find the magic spot.
When I got my current 105k I had 42k after the 1st shot. I’ve seen 40k+ a few times but generally mess up shot #2. Good luck :)

Similar to @marc987 and @comex666. Couple of hints… on first bird need a score of at least 38,000 (or else reset)AND that pesky long piece of wood from the bottom of the middle structure should not be sticking above the big box sitting on that middle structure. This opens the shot for chuck thru the thin piece of wood but I try to keep it low just grazing the top of the canister and continuing on to take out at least one of the big boxes hopefully two.

Thanks @marc987 for posting emor63’s strategy. Worked well. Tried both methods with the second bird one with a more horizontal path and the second with an arc. Found that the arc destroyed the fire extinguisher and more boxes to the right of it. Used the arc in @realfish debris shot screenshot. Was able to break 100k. Fun level to play but a challenging second bird.

By TruckDriver (@truckdriver)Score: 95,180

Strangely enough, I’m having difficulty getting this strat to work at all. It seems that the “sweet spot” that you need to hit here is exceedingly small, and if you miss, little red seems to do nothing but bounce and expend its energy to no advantage whatsoever. That being said, I have managed to get significant damage on the structure a couple of times, though even using Laurence’s more conventional modifications to the back end of this strat, I haven’t managed an overall score higher than that obtained from using the walkthrough method.

The variation of launch positions of little red are quite subtle, and yield wildly different results, as I’m sure you know. All I can suggest is to play around with little red on the slingshot, while carefully noting his position for repeatability. I wish I could help more here, but I’m in the same boat you are.

One final thought on this issue: I’m wondering if there’s a subtle difference between iOS and Android devices at work here. This phenomenon has seen mention in other places around here, and I’m quite curious to know if there is really something to this. I have half a mind to get myself an iPad and perform a complete side by side comparison, but I haven’t quite managed to justify the cost of it yet…

Thanks TruckDriver, I am playing on an IPad, but first completed all versions of all AB games on my Android phone…I finished and missed it so I replayed everything on my IPAD, I have only just recently found this site upon YofTD and thats when I started entering in scores so before I would just get three stars be happy and move on, my point here is that when I began to enter in scores I chose to do it from my IPad as this was now going to be my main platfrom as its bigger and better, but in doing so just for the heck of it I went back and comapared my Android scores to my IPad and on almost every level, IPad scores were higher…Now keep in mind in both cases I had not yet went back and tried to improve scores yet, at this point I had just 3 starred all levels on both devices and IPad was higher, btw I chose to only enter in scores from IPad so they match my Game Center scores and have not gone back in my Android to improve scores but again, in the beginning Ipad was already higher on almost every level I checked so maybe you have a point…or it might be that the IPad is so much bigger thats it is simply just easier to see and aim because it is bigger???

By TruckDriver (@truckdriver)Score: 95,180

Perhaps, though I tend to discount your theory about the iPad. The reason I do that is because I play on the Android-based Motorola Xoom, which has a slightly bigger screen than does the iPad.

Where I think that the difference lies is mostly in how app code is compiled. Presuming that AB is written in C++, you can put the same code through compilers that port out to iOS, Android, and just about every platform. Differences in runtime engines, with different processing priorities could also be a factor. If so, there likely isn’t any real way to compensate for said differences, and there isn’t any way that I know of to accurately chart such small benchmarks, provided you can even find them.

Having said all that, all I really want is to have ME functionality. I really don’t want to start from scratch, merely to chase after the feathers, but that’s a whole other topic for discussion.

First, kudos to marc and ernor for this great strat…I got 101,060!

@AngryAdvisor you’ll have to get red bird to land pretty squarely at the top of the small square block holding up two ends of the horizontal planks. Sometimes rb will “hang” before it disappears, then the cage will start falling to the left. I’ve done it consistently a few times, so just wait a few seconds before resetting. Good luck!

On PC I found that the first one is actually pretty easy shot. While aiming for the first shot, drag the bird so that it’s outline barely touches the slingshot. When youmanage to get a couple succesful shots, it gets a lot easier to aim it right. I think that second bird is a lot harder, ’cause it depends when you click to accelerate its speed, if it’s done too early or too late, it will just bump there causing nothing else but a headache.

@Mumsie – I aimed the second bird so that it was almost a straight shot but a bit over it. I accelerated it when it was pretty much at the half way. It’s hard to describe ’cause I wasn’t paying so much attention on it, but I’ll bet that you can find the point!

My best score prior to visiting this walkthrough was 92,970 with 3 birds. The 2 bird/first post above method is the method that gave me 103,430. It takes some precision lobbing and that extinguisher is very hard to explode. I finally got the 2nd shot to work best by accelerating later than the half way mark with more of a semi lob rather than a straight/horizontal shot.
