Angry Birds Rio Trophy Room Walkthrough Anchor Trophy

A strategy for the Angry Birds Rio Trophy Room “Anchor Trophy” bonus level is to fling the boomerang bird up towards the topmost vertical wood beam. Breaking this beam will release the giant boulder from the Raiders of the Lost Ark. With luck it will have enough momentum and finish off the level (Indiana will escape of course). The score in the video below is 183,950.

3-starred with 175,000, so it’s at least that low.

174k is 2 stars, 175k is 3 stars.

Easier for me to achieve a +180,000 score with two birds. Boomerang Bird shot backwards at the steepest angle possible so that it goes underwater and pops up in the explosive-packed cave on the far right; Yellow Bird in a high arch so that it takes out both the vertical wood beam holding the boulder and the wood holding up the metal girder that makes a bridge for the boulder. (If the bridge isn’t already in place when the boulder reaches it, the boulder won’t have enough momentum to clear the level.)

I started from 1B 178K by normal way. It’s repetable with very gently touch of wooden board by Boomerang Bird. I also mad later 2B / 178K.

As @zlyeptitsy wrote 2B with BB shoot step, backwards, fast ignition OVER the water (!) set repetable enter and climb BB by cave wall. Other 2B was 180, 182, 183, 185. For now is to late in Europe to continue rise, so I’m actual at 6#.

Thank you @zlyeptitsy ! Took me a bit to figure out the first bird :)

Here’s a video of this method: I captured some higher scoring runs, but this one is most representative of how to place the shots.

Followed @fenikus video, thank you. Received the extra points when the round bolder fell to the lowest level and most of the structure fell to the left getting destroyed. Fun level to play zoomed in and watching the boulder roll.

Took a zillion tries, but it works just like in the video. 182,670

Aim boomerang bird at monkey hanging on the stick near the rock, he should break stick thereby detonating tnt and fall on wooden sticks below clearing them so bridge falls and boulder rolls on finishing everything else off. 187,180 with just one bird.

By Dennis

Its pretty much the same strategy as posted except I find that its better to aim at the monkey hanging from the stick than the stick itself.

By Dennis

And to add… strategy kills the monkey AND drops the bridge.

By Dennis

EGAD! Sorry to keep adding to my post mods but I also just discovered that in order for the rock to continue on, there is a small vertical slab of concrete at the top of the structure in the cave that needs to fall out so that the bridge, when it falls, will be ever so slightly angled downward to allow boulder to continue on its way.

By Dennis

This isnt always the case either as sometimes the boulder still rolls on if it has momentum but removing the vertical slab ensures that the rock rolls on…sorry, Ill shut up now, the floor is anyone else’s with something useful to add ;)

Dennis! You should create a profile/account on Angry Birds Nest and enter your scores on the Leaderboards. This site is a lot of fun and since you are checking it and sharing some game play strategies, just join us.

I came here to discuss this nightmare of a vertical slab. 9 out of 10 times it prevents the boulder. If you go under water with the boomerang, it clears the debris from before the bridge which causes the boulder to bounce on bridge, breaking through it instead of rolling over it. Or perhaps a tiny piece of wood lands on the bridge, stopping boulder dead. Or the long vertical twig falls right, not left, stopping the 20 ton boulder (as twigs do.) What else? Oh yes, if none of the above happen, and boulder falls through where it should, it doesn’t smash enough wood (or drag it under) for enough points. Geez, how many planets must align for a decent score? I’ve got 3 stars but nothing to write home about. So far, Dennis’ suggestion to fling at the marmoset – sending bird beyond to help facilitate the bridge placement, gave me the best result. Not a fan of 30 things going wrong with one fling!

I have 188’850 here. Lucky strike I guess

You have to use the “boomerang bird” dropping it down in the water and bend it at once. Then you can make it from underneath. Use the second bird to release the boulder. Remember to take out som wood by dropping the bird slightly downwards.

By Rick

Omg. Thanks guys for the help. I’ve been at this for a month. First bird in the water. Second bird at that rotton monkey. 187070. Thanks again.

Anyone figure out the significance of the wooden arrow that’s anchored to the rock with a plank and pointing toward the water?

By Steve

Best score to date is 191570, to do this boomerang bird under the water and Tnt explosion has to drop and make cracks in the bridge, yellow bird just under the cliff to take out the hanging monkey and you want the yellow bird to roll up the bottom boulder ramp as far as it will go, the boulder will catch up and hop over the yellow bird and the bridge will break when the boulder is across it letting the yellow bird fall in the gap taking out everything below. The boulder rolls all the way to the left and finishes that side off.

My method isn’t easy but when it works its worth it.

revisited this level because my score was low. no improvement for quite a while then woohoo, number 3 at the moment!

Your comment made me also revisit this level and try to best my old score. Which, after a few tries, I did so and increased my score by 2K but still shy of cracking 190+

One bird, boomer through the vertical plank holding marmie but with enough arc to bust the funny revers Y and fall into the hold, taking down everything underneath while the boulder rolls. Have quite a few stories about using the boomer backwards, under to the explosive cave, then yellow follosing the arc -> marmie and sets the ball rolling where I have 150K and three birds waiting to be counted, the ball is still rolling but the level stops before it falls down onto the raft which would surely net me another 5 or 10K to up my score. I’ve started to notice more and more that the level may end before everything stops moving and more points are to be had. I guess timing is everything,

I didn’t realize how far behind I was with completing these levels …. I hadn’t even started, let alone played BR for above average scores. Just like video, perhaps my 6th try for 185670 on iPad. It’s not a great score, but it’s almost 2k over average. I don’t know if anything has changed since the initial release, but it really was quite easy for an above average score.

This one the video comes up but wont play :( any ideas anyone?

@kathy I found the video on @fenikus’s Angry Birds Rio Channel:

Here’s a link to the River Blossom Anchor Trophy video:

The link address is the same, so I hope it works. If neither link works, then search YouTube for the channel.

Hope it helps someone.

@bswins Great thanks for posting these links. I’ve got a new device since. So I’ll give it another try! Congrats on the great score!

First try and I got 3 stars using @fenikus strategy. I saw the arrow and I figured that was either the first or second shot. Now to try and get above average.
