Angry Birds Rio Timber Tumble Walkthrough Level #5

Our strategy for Timber Tumble Level #5 is to spin a Boomerang bird under the slingshot platform, triggering the remote control car. The demolition will destroy most of the level, leaving a Blue bird and maybe another Boomerang bird to clean up the remains. The score in the video below is 180,060.

First bird same as video. Then second bird, blues, slightly up, split directly. Lower bird goes into left glass structure, upper bird goes into right glass structure.

@bernersenn did you use only 2 birds? I am trying the video and your advice but only 185k . Seems like I’m missing some points somewhere. Great score by the way;)

Thanks much, @kathy !! As an old disabled guy not feeling so hot & not seeing as well as I’d like, when I ‘revisited’ TT#5 in Oct, 2015, everything seemed to go fairly well – tho, originally, I misread my score as 201+K vs 210+K. It seemed to me like the score should have been higher …. but, since the ‘mind-score’ of mine – as usual :-) – didn’t catch YOU, @kathy , at 202+K, I didn’t revu or post a pic. The rapid-blue-bird-split {almost immediate rlse; pls see pic (which includes Owl – Stevie’s ‘Mom’ } :)

188+: if you release a well-aimed blue immediately after having hit the tnt, the debris of the remaining two tower will contribute to the destruction of the bulldoser (or what).

@vic-the-hun @emider Can one of you clarify ‘immediately’? If you fire blue as fast as is possible, the wooden box part of the first structure blocks the top blue from hitting the far right structure. It’s at least 3 seconds from the time the bulldozer starts moving before that structure falls out of the way.

@vic-the-hun Of course it means that, which is why I asked in my above post. :) I see no possible way the blues can hit both targets with an “immediate” shot. The tall pile of wooden boxes behind the first tower blocks the shot until at least 3 seconds after the trigger is hit.

@Affemaedsche Do you recall how you got your 209k score? Unless the level self-collapsed giving you an 0-birder, I don’t this score is possible. I believe you’ve encountered the infamous double-counted birds (DCB) bug, which added 20k extra points to a 189,830 score. :( If you used the standard 2-bird strategy like @bernersenn posted above, 189k is an above average score for that shot.

In May, we told Rovio how to fix this bug, and we’d hoped it’d be fixed by now. Apparently, they haven’t gotten around to it yet.

Have to agree with @kathy. Just can’t see how the top score could be achieved in ‘normal’ game play. Probably entered without the player realising it was a glitch score. As it stands though, it makes the challenge unattainable and rather pointless. Fun level though :-))

I thought I’d read that ROVIO fixed the problem you referenced &, given the ‘eons’ obtaining { :-) } , was hopeful the scores were ‘good’ …. tho, perhaps the problem is fixed with units ROVIO now supports …. NOT on ‘dropped’ platform (PC). I believe I mention any anomaly when scores are posted – if I suspect; so, for #5, #11 & #14 I understand why suspect and removed. Why #16 was removed is totally mystifying. NO WORRIES, tho; in any event, if I get to feeling better, I’ll start over with #5, 11 & 14 ….. and maybe post some inquiries on #16 before I start over on it …. tho the way things are going, no time soon : – ). Also, is there a badge of some sort for ‘hitting the trifecta’ of three ‘ROVIO-double-counts’ in one ‘chapter’ of 20 ‘episodes’? LOL. Again, THX!

Also, ROVIO published a note at one time or another saying that there is no guarantee that any shot will yield exact results, regardless — so maybe ROVIO added some random # to my score …. just causing it to appear legitimate :). In any event my ask for consideration is based on good faith playing & posting …. I think a lot of scores are somewhat perplexing; &, w/o actual ROVIO pgm code &/or modeling not done, I certainly cannot ‘prove’ anything :-).

Hi @rldoty. Sorry for the late reply but I’ve been travelling a lot this past month, and not online much. Yeh, it’s easy to enter scores that seem questionable to other players – I’ve done it myself, and made the odd typo too. Admins usually sort it out, but they do rely on members to raise questions from time to time. Mostly people make honest mistakes, but there are sadly some players who enter bogus scores deliberately- “go figure” as they say. Whatever the reason, unreasonable scores skew the leaderboards, and spoil genuine competition for other players. Anyway, good luck flinging and see you around :-))
