Angry Birds Rio Smugglers Plane Walkthrough Level 24 (12-9)

One strategy for Smugglers’ Plane level 12-9 is to loft the Boomerang bird over the structures and spin him back through the hollow wooden square on the right side. Inevitably, all that matters is that all cages on the right side break. Lob the White bird and bomb as close to the right side of the first structure as possible. The explosions should clear all remaining cages, but use the Yellow bird if you need to.

Wow, this almost got it with one bird for me. Not much destruction, though. Needed the white bird for the cage to the left of the suitcase. I appreciate the help, thanks.

111120… Boomerang bird lobed over entire structure reverse to take out very bottom solid wooden block. This will clear entire right structure including suitcase. Use wb to take out remaining structure on left. Aim for black barrel to drop bomb.

99k, just throw green straight at the closest barrel, destroys most of first structure. Throw white low, and activate on top of pile of barrels, and make white destroy sand block at bottom of second structure. 99k is most certainly not the limit, as I see higher scores available

121570 – 1 bird. Shot backwards and tapped immediately, hit top platform and caused chain reaction with middle barrell exploding causing right structure to collapse destroying suitcase too. Didnt try that many times, lucky shot I guess not sure if easy to repeate

Hey @swelld, I’ve been trying both your and nicomauro’s methods, but I’ve not been able to get above 104k with the 1-Birders, my best so far 119k+ is with 2 Birds like on the video, I’ll keep on trying though, don’t have anything else to do anyhow. Happy Hunting!

I’ve gotten the 1-Birder about 15 times already, but the score won’t go above 111k, wonder what their secret is? are they bribing Rovio for the higher scores? or are their birds magically enhanced? oh well, the heck with it!

Nice flinging @sunshine! I’ve gotten a few 1-birders this way, but my highest score was 108k, so I’m obviously missing some key destruction somewhere. Must have been something to see. I got 116k using the walkthrough method.
Congrats on your score :)

@karen68 thanks, when he says tap immediately, he means it. The bird hit the platform pushing everything to the right, and into to pit, something took out that corner sand block, and everything collapsed there, nothing was left in the pit. It was very cool!!!! Keep at it, I think you need another dog. ;D GL

Thanks for the post @nicomauro got the one bird solution also. In fact repeated it a number of times. For an aiming tip I zoomed in and used the horizontal rods in the shell of the plane. Line up the first bird so it’s belly is slightly below the upper black line of the rod. It can adjusted to be on the line also but activation has to be immediate. Fun level to play!

By Bill

Best single bird clear is 112.5K with GB into the edge of the first top table. If hit right he goes through causing things to tumble and getting to the right side. Most times the suitcase is still there.

Best two bird is 114.4K. First bird like the video, but go lucky and got the suitcase and the bird on top of the barrels. The WB used to clean up left side. Again somewhat like the video. Just lucky is what that was!

Looking for that one bird 121K plus like nicomauro.

Two birds for 117110 and dependable method. First bird far right boomerang to take out solid light wood on very bottom right, whole right structure goes along with suitcase…wb straight shot right into the barrel on the left first structure. You hit him straight at it and tap upon contact, all left goes!!!

Confirmed! Hard part is to get the entire right structure to collapse. If you take out both the bottom block and the suitcase with the first bird, then you’re ok. Second bird is easy.

After many attempts I have a totally alternate 1 bird strategy. I launch BB straight ahead so that it strikes the left side of the left platform at the junction on the reinforced wooden plank and first barrel. Done correctly it will decimate the right platform, launch the 2nd stone block backwards over the stacked barrels in the pit and knock out the sand block holding up the right side. This will cause the right side to slide forward and destroy the suitcase and for the top score, obliterate the remaing debris on the left platform.

Ditto, I’ve been using this and have my high score of 111 with a two birder, after clearing left platform launch egg-bird as low as possible, bomb the barrels and take out as much as possible on the far right structure. reliably in the 105+ realm, but my one-birders have yielded a “disappointing” 105 – 107 scoring.

I did just as the video shows, and slowly but surely the score would go up with each attempt until I reached this plateau…So it looks as if I’ve reached my apex since it won’t let me go any higher, for now, I’m satisfied.

Just like several other players – 1 bird clear with reverese remi, using @nicomauro ‘s tip to tap right away on release. Zoomed in fully, lined up underside of BB’s belly slightly above midpoint of the horizontal strut behind him. Release and tap immediately, and he barely clears the platform, then hits the left structure directly above the barrel. After only a few attempts I got lucky, and when the right structure collapsed it took out the suitcase, and most of the remainder fell onto the barrels in the gap. Very little left. A classic R&R level methinks!

Screen shot for @sweetp : thanks!

Good luck all.

@sweetp 121440 for the daily challenge. I used 2 birds, the first being the same as already mentioned by other challenge players above, remi-reverse into the long reinforced wood.
I didn’t have much luck with the right side, so I like to use the second bird to bomb the stairs in front of the first structure. That alone gives about 9k if you time it properly, so it doesn’t hurt to try. The bird should fly through the top of the stairs to slow down a bit and then hit the right structure for another chance to destroy it.

@angrychicken thanks for the great 2-bird strategy.
1st the remi reverse as described by nicomauro, the right structure didn’t fall.
I used your 2nd shot, bombing the stairs in front, Matilda hit the barrel that remained at the front of the left structure, & slowed down a bit so she bounced along the left platform & ended up taking out the sandblock at the base of the right structure.
It’s a tricky shot but when it works it’s sweet to watch.

Debris & trajectory of 2nd shot –

Just had a last few flings before the challenge ended, and managed to up my score to 123K+ also using @angrychicken ‘s 2-Bird strat! So both techniques can give high scores.

2-birder, many thx to @angrychicken for the second bird-strat-into-stairs.

second very low, destroy the stairs and the bird break debris on right tower.
