Angry Birds Rio Smugglers Plane Walkthrough Level 19 (12-4)

One strategy for Smugglers’ Plane level 12-4 is to fire the first Yellow bird head-on into the boulder, causing its stand to topple onto the cage below. Launch Big Brother straight ahead, triggering the TNT in the middle of the level. Finally, use the next Yellow bird to level the right tower.

yb straight up to come down and smash both the first horizontal wood plank and the vertical wood plank to its right.

Big red to skim the top of the concrete ball, so the ball went into the TNT and the bird continued into the bottom left of the far tower.

Everything came down!

This is the method with which I’ve been going at it as well, although it is hard to get that right structure to collapse. If it doesn’t, three stars can still be obtained using the yellow bird into the base of it, getting you a few thousand points above the threshold :)

ended up using the same method, but it didn’t yield that many points.
back to the drawing board ;)

Launh yellow bird to hit the horizontal concrete plank of the right tower .. the tower should collape to the right.. you should end up with a score of 25k+..

next launch big brother through the left vertical wodden plank below the steel ball.. if trajetory is right, big brother will ram it’s way and detonate TNT.. score should be 100k+

Thanks psybrat – used your method and got 109k. I lost count of the number of tries when Big Red didn’t quite make it to the TNT. This time it sped up as it hit the vertical wooden block and destroyed pretty much everything. I’ve seen this happen on a numder of levels, not just Rio but orig and seasons – there doesn’t seem any pattern to it tho. Being a 45 yr old technophobe playing on my sons ‘hand me down’ ipod touch, I’ve no idea how to do a screenschot of my score but promise its geniune (only my 2nd ever top score on all AB levels and probably won’t stay there for long). Thanks again psybrat – hopefully you can get a few more points from your method – just keep it slightly under 109010 please – lol.

Used the same strategy @psybrar thanks for posting. First bird to the right side is repeatable. Getting bird red into the tnt box was the challenge.

This method worked for me too. Best to get far right stack to topple. I got 30k once but then missed with big red :)

Thanks psybrat

can someone make a video of psybrat’s method? I can’t aim the red ball right and it just dies

All I can say Mike, is keep trying. Vary your aim a little at a time. I have noticed that sometimes Big Red can cut through a level like a hot knife through butter and sometimes the smallest obstacle can stop him in his tracks.

Isn’t it amazing how that can happen? In this case, on my PC, I’ll be happy with my 90k.

Has anyone else noticed that every time you launch an awesome first shot, BIG RED never cuts through to the TNT? It’s sooooo frustrating. Think I’ll give it a rest, watch the bike races then come back.

Yep, he races did it, finally cracked the 100k.

So, years later I see similar strats, but nobody posted this.
1st yb slightly over horizontal, accelerating above the boulder. play with the placement and activation, zoomed in I put Chuck’s hair right over the crossbar there and activate just past apogee, which happens to be about over the boulder. with a few practice flings you can reliably (50% maybe) go through the structure with the cage and bring down the stuff on the right with the apple for a good 28 – 29 K start.

Big red I align by making perfectly horizontal and slowly moving down until I see that first “aliasing jag” move almost all the way to the right and carefully release. if he hits that vertical block cleanly he accelerates (Rovio Physics) and smashes through to the TNT.

I hadn’t yet come here for tips and got my 103K in about 10 minutes

I did use all 4 and got 94K with boxes remaining on the bottom left, but I think sporty’s 112K is beyond the practical maximum – what I call a “fenikus fling” – not beyond possibility, but a once in a lifetime alignment of the stars. Of course, I’ve found that when you fling 1000 times on a level, once in a lifetime isn’t so rare.

I’ve posted a video on my YouTube channel with the BlueStacks Tap Spots. It’s rinse and repeat and not for anyone on a touch screen. Shame that we were left out of the high scoring loops for many of the episodes beyond original.

111780 with two birds.

Same strategy as in @comex666 video. Did I tell you it is invaluable?
Thanks a lot for it. :-)

Here is the final result.

And this is the highscore screenshot.

Unfortunately I did not find time for the Challenge yesterday. After watching the @comex666 video I gave it a few tries today and it took not very long until I got lucky and found the right spot for the 2nd shot. What a fun it was to see Big Bird slicing through all the obstacles as if the were butter!

Thanks again @comex666 for the very helpful video and apologies for the new sheriff;-)
