Angry Birds Rio Smugglers Plane Walkthrough Level 25 (12-10)

One strategy for Smugglers’ Plane level 12-10 is to launch the first Blue bird head-on into the first tower, splitting as late as possible. Launch the next Blue bird in a similar way, but split earlier to break part of the chain holding the boxes. Use the Red bird to snipe any pesky cages that remain.

Right back at ya, Kartflyer. I’m surprised my score has actually been at the top for more than a few minutes. I’m assuming you used two birds, as well. That second shot seemed to be the key; when it rebounded the whole right side exploded and toppled. I will see if I can re-recreate the pair of flings so I can pass on better tips. I appreciate the shout out. Thank you. Aloha.

How about some tips on how to get a high score? Can’t believe the people at the top used the strategy posted by Slim. (No offense Slim, I know you are just trying to show people how to get 3*s.)

Try this method for a higher score: first bird aimed at midpoint of first glass tower. Split as late as possible in order to send at least one birdlet into the second tower. I managed approximately 33000 points by clearing cages in both towers with first blue bird, and two of the birdlets smashed through glass in both towers For second shot, follow advice of IamMighty and try to hit that tiny wooden block at left where chain is attached. This maximizes the whipping action of the chain after it breaks, releasing enough energy to pop that last cage with blue bird inside. Of course your other birdlets will need to contribute in order to break the 60000 barrier (before adding 10000 bonus for leftover red bird.) I realize this isn’t much different than the walkthrough, but the key to top score seems to be the clearing of both towers with one bird. Aloha.

1st b/b- To the first wooden block of the necklace causing the necklace to break on on side and destroying all the cages to the right (Repeat for more luck).

2nd b/b- To the first ice tower which makes the b/b to continue its path and even destroying the second tower.

Proof of highscore.
Actually heres a tip to actually break off the first tower and also break the chain.
Pull blue bird to 90 degrees with the slingshot and move it slightly downwards and explode it at the time of releasing itself which makes 2/3 of the birds to hit the tower and the remaining 1 bird hits the chain. Actually theres a weak spot on the chain which helps the chain to break only with 1 bird.

I struggled like HECK to get three stars, and then boom! Top score?? Unreal. I know it won’t last long ’round these parts, but I’ll take it for now!

FWIW, I did it just like the vid. Takes some luck to get that last birdie cage to break!

The key seems to be to have the chain break at a point just long enough to push the last cage over hard enough to break it. If the bottom of the broken chain extends too far below the bottom of the cage, then it wastes its energy dragging on the deck.

Try as I might, I couldn’t seem to find a reliable marker for launch or expansion of the blue bird, so you just have to feel your way, as frustrating as that is.

My method here is to use both blue birds at about a 30 degree angle, but split early, basically as soon as the leave the slingshot! With a bit of luck one of them will get the cage at the back, and you can finish with just these birds. Have 75090 with this, so best of luck :)

My method was to aim first blue bird slightly higher than straight but key is to split them shortly after you sling him so that the bottom two take out first tower and top bb of the split goes to that “weak”spot on the chain which took out all far right birds except the very furtherest one. Repeat this with second bb and wait just a tad bit longer to split him so that the bottom two of the split bb takes out second structure and the top bb of the split sails on down to take out that previously mentioned far right bird. This is a very dependable strat that works more often then not to get an above average score…hope I’ve helped someone, anyone to get a few extra points?

For some reason I never get any feed back if anyone tries my methods or if my post have helped yield a few more points for ya… I am fairly new to the site and have only started posting since the release of the YofTD and have managed to get above average on all levels and high score once as wells lots of top 5 – 10ish…hope I am helping some?!! Happy slinging and thanks to all for making an already fun game even more fun by adding some healthy competition.

I think the main reason is simply that you post strategies a couple of days after the update, when a large number of people will already have completed all of the levels to their satisfaction.

Thanks AA, your strategy helped me improve my score by 6k points. Except my first bird took out everything but the second tower. And don’t worry, I’m sure you are helping a lot more people than just me. Just that not everyone posts their thanks.

FWIW, AA, as you’ve seen me post elsewhere, I took a self-imposed sabbatical from all things Angry Birds for a while (I got very obssessed during Summer Pignic, and hardly got any work done!). I’ve since come back and have a lot of catching up to do. Well, actually, I’m pretty close now (this may be my last episode across the four games). Angry Birds has made me realized that I may have a little case of OCD!

I, for one, have greatly appreciated your advice on many levels. Hopefully, I can return the favor at some point soon.

Hey guys and thanks for tips! My strategy was: 1st bird hit 2 towers (lucky). 2nd bird hit both wooden blocks and it fell and freed the last bird? 70110

I found a method that could push you over 80k, First shot you aim for first tower and you just want to have good clearance of the glass on that tower. clearing some on the 2nd tower is a bonus but not crucial.

Key is in the 2nd shot which is much harder. I split the bird almost immediately. You want the top bird to hit the chain in right spot to break it and cause a collapse. middle bird takes out the 2nd glass tower and the 3rd bird is the key. It needs to hit the square stone block left on the first tower right on the edge to cause it to flip over and roll down. The extra damaged caused should give you a extra 5k. I’ve managed this 4 times so far but each time the result was as in the picture below where the far right blue cage survived, so it is just a matter of getting the correct collapse there. For this go it would have yielded at least 78k, but I have had cases where I could have broken 80k, again the last blue cage being the problem.

I combined @rocklands and @laurence strats by cutting the chain with the 1st shot and splitting the 2nd shot a tad later to kill the far monkey as well
