Angry Birds Rio Smugglers Plane Walkthrough Level 8 (11-8)

Our strategy for Smugglers’ Plane level 11-8 is to fire the Yellow bird horizontally through the second tower, triggering the TNT and clearing the entire left side of the level. With a slightly higher trajectory, break the bottom-left leg of the right tower with the next Yellow bird. If the collapsed tower does not clear the level, use the next Yellow bird to break the remaining cages. The score in the video below is 105,910.

I got 118k on this by just hitting bird one on the first horizontal wood plank (+ TNT, etc.) and bird 2 on the little piece of wood at the left end of the right structure.

Looks like you can squeeze bird 1 between the spinners and the concrete block to hit that back little piece of wood. Anyone manage clearing the level with this one shot alone? I tried for a while with no luck.

Yep, one bird for 125K. Arc over the top and hit the small wood piece (piece of wood hit in 2nd shot of video).

Thanks, your 2-bird strategy was very easy to execute and very repeatablemespecially since the launch angles were almost identicaI! I quickly raised my score by 14k. I also tried the 1-bird strategy by sneaking the YB through the obstacles into the small wooden plank supporting the far left structure but only got 117k. Higher scores probably benefitted from more fortunate fallout. Is there an AB Lucky Charm available? I come close to breaking through so many times – just not far enough.

Do you mean the bottom fat block to the right of the cage at the bottom of the furthest structure? And shoot under the spinny things. I realize this strat was written a while ago..but if anyone else has tried it I would appreciate the help, there are some levels I can’t make average so I figured I try to compensate by improving my higher scores …can’t hurt right? :)

Kathy: that’s the one. The best way I’ve found to aim it, as it is initially difficult, but gets easier with practice is to use the background. Specifically, if you look at the vertical frames, you’ll see a spot where the horizontal purlin is missing, and when you pull yellow back in the slingshot, it’s place stands out as the black dot that contrasts with yellow. Have yellow occlude the bottom quarter or so of the black dot, then let fly. The natural drop of his arc should take him to the block you need to hit. Don’t accelerate yellow until just before impact.

That’s it. The luck part lies in getting the debris to detonate the TNT on the left, to get a really high score. This is the sort of thing that, i my pinball days, we referred to as a “skill shot.”

By Jeff

130,090 shot one I hit the bottom of the first spinning thing, which sent it into the second one for some damage and the third one knocked it down where it split the wood above the TNT box and blew up most everything.

Shot two was at the small piece of wood at the front of the tall second structure. Hit this and it all came down.

Key to 130,090 was the damage from the first shot, I got lucky that it took out so much of the spinning structures.

You don’t have to hit the bottom of spinning things necessarily. Arc the first bird and accelerate when the bird is in line to take out the middle of the first two spinners. Not every shot is a winner, but you should score in the low to mid 50,000’s with the first shot. Second shot like the video.

By SweetP

What is the little box that is way up high in this level? Seems very out of place and I have not been able to smash it. You can only see it by shooting a yellow bird almost straight up.

By ohforfive (@ohforfive)Score: 124,620

After about a dozen tries, I managed to hit it. Aim at a high angle and accelerate it as soon as it leaves the launcher. The bird bounced off the box without doing any damage and hit the cages just before the tower. Point total wasn’t as high (44000 or so) as using Jeff’s method above (usually above 50000).

Thank you for this strategy/video. I tried and tried and tried to get that one birder. While I can hit the shot pretty consistently, I’m not patient enough today to spend too long on it. What’s great about this approach is that there are points in those spinning things that are missed in other approaches. This helps to make up for the extra bird.

Nicely done.

@misterparon – Thanks for the video. It really helped me improve my score. Not as high as yours but working on it for the Challenge. Once i learned not to fear shooting into those fans (or whatever they are) i saw my score increase by 5 or 6K. It’s so neat when people are generous with their strategies – and a video – well that’s like a great big bonus!

The shot described by Jeff above is pretty neat, going through the spinners to drop on the centre TNT. It helps if it takes out as much of the wood & stone as possible to the immediate right & knock the 1st small stone “tower” for the points. I got anywhere from 5-9k from the spinners alone, lots of variation there. An ideal score after the 1st shot is over 50k.
2nd shot like the video & hope for lots of crashing debris.
I had the 1st bird go right through the spinners to take out that wooden leg as in the 2nd shot for a 1-birder a couple of times, my highest score was 108k, but could potentially go higher. Happy flinging everyone :)

@karen68…Nice Score!!!That’s what I’ve been trying to pull off..basically trying to use both strats in one to get the “spinners/fan” extra “debris” points while taking out the left leg support for a one birdie. Which I’ve done several times but my highest score this way was 124K+ so I’m sure it can be much higher as rocklands got a one birdie for 128K but he doesn’t mention anything about the fans so I’m assuming he didn’t use them and just went straight to the wood which I’ve also done but scores were low. He now shows a 131K+ score so I wonder if he improved it with his original strat?
So as of now Jeff’s description is how I have got my highest score of 126270 which needs much improvement!!!
P.S. Don’t you just love it when that first left small tower defies gravity and just remains in a permanent lean position, lol…I just reset it if it doesn’t fall because you need those points ;-)

Thanks @lesleyg, I like these levels where there’s more than one option to score well, hopefully increases your chances?! After I hit 131k I quit trying for the 1-birder, & left happy! And you’re right, I’ve seen some wonderful gravity-defying leaning on this one, particularly on the far right structure, which is unfortunate because I think that’s where my extra few thousand came from. I had 56k after my 1st shot and got a great collapse of that far right structure. Good luck!
And thanks for your encouragement on Piglantis 2-13, I’m determined to wring some more points out of that one :)

@lesleyg Hey there, my friend! I’ve really had a hard time figuring out the scores on this level. More than most levels in AB, I am mystified about why I keep getting such a wide ranges of points for basically the same shot/destruction (okay, obviously there is more destruction for higher scores). However, I decided to reply to your post, in particular, because I just had a very surprising outcome!

Yes, that left small tower is stubborn. That said, I’ve had some very high scores without it–including my current score of 132,660! As the points racked up, I was completely shocked. I think I only had about 52K after the first shot, so I was not expecting anything about about 123-124K. However, as I look closer at the picture, aside from the little tower, there is almost nothing left on the left side. . .

That is pretty amazing the amount of other destruction that second shot got you!!!! Perhaps if I had seen this screenshot with out the left tower before the Challenge ended…I wouldn’t have hit reset soooo many times, lol. Nice Job my friend!!!
