Golden Eggsteroid #14 (E-14) is located on level 5-28 of Angry Birds Space Red Planet. Zoom out and you will see the Rover north between the blue crystals. Use any bird to reach it with a straight shot using the geyser steam. Once you hit the egg you’ll immediately be transported via a wormhole to the level, which pays homage to the Phoenix Lander. One strategy 3-starring this level is to fire Blue Bird on a low trajectory towards the center boulders, splitting midway. You should have cleared most of the level. Then finish off by sending Lazer Bird towards the last pig hiding between the top right crystals and boulders.
*Note: Previously known as E-R4 (Phoenix Lander), the level number was changed to E-14 with the 2.0.0 Beak Impact Update.
If you need help, the video below shows the location of the Golden Rover and a strategy for passing the level with 3 stars.
Highscore Strategy: Since this level has a rather high 3-star threshold, we thought we should include a higher scoring strategy. In general, this strategy can clear the level using only the Blue bird. Note, however, that you should use the Lazer bird if, and only if, the crystals immediately east of the astronaut pig are not broken on your first shot. The score in the video below is 150,720, about 7000 points more than the strategy above.
Works with just one bird. Aimed at same target as video and chain reaction finished off everything to give 145,880
I found it easier to get the 1-birder by closely clearing the piggie on a string in the vent, just a little space, and splitting just after you pass him…or her…or it.
This was the ticket for my 3*. Was stuck in the 130K range. Thanks @waimea, sorry about beating your score, but those things happen.
My pleasure @birdmeister. That’s why we share strats! (;
Thank You @@waimea !! got it 3rd try with your tip!!
Hah @kathy, it’s been so long since I’d flung anything worth leaving a strategy for, I did a double take. Yes, I see I left it in 2013. But I’m so glad I could help, even at this late date! :D
Lol @waimea is great to find some help going through these old level. i was never good at these eggstroid so i never bothered to enter my score and eventually gave up playing them. so yes really good to find some helpful not impossible tip:)
I stopped playing last night, but now when I re-load the game, the rover isn’t on level 5-28 anymore. How can I return to the bonus level when I can’t find the rover? Any ideas? Thanks!
It’s on the second page of the eggsteroid episode.
As @neptunepluto and @waimea have said, there is definitely a 1-bird clear here. Fire the Blue bird a little above the “stringed” piglet floating in the steam of the volcano. Split pretty much immediately after passing the piglet. With a bit of luck, you can break the free the boulders in the three leftmost slots. My current score is 149,960 with this (I do have a 1-birder recorded on video, though only 143k+).
Though I will say, I’m wondering if using the Lazer bird to free the last set of boulders is worth more than 10k…
Well, I answered my own question. The answer is: “Maybe”.
• If the crystals immediately east of the astronaut pig are in-tact, then it is worthwhile to fire the Lazer bird through them and into the icy barrier beyond.
• If those crystals were broken by the initial shot from the Blue bird, I believe releasing the last set of boulders will only yield between 7,000 and 9,000 points. Therefore, you are better off keeping the Lazer bird for a bonus.
I agree…my highest score using Lazer Bird was 151400.
I got higher score with one birdie getting that cyrstal for 153220.
Thanks for the tips @neptunepluto, @waimea & @amslimfordy ;-)
I find that a second shot is always worth > 10k. Patiently wait for the TNT to explode and shoot in an arc just high enough to clear the debris still floating over the steam vent.
I just made 155.720 with 2B (before I was at 153.760 with 1B). I used Lazer Bird to cut blue cristal and open last cave with stones at top planet.
Spoken like a true math dude @amslimfordy. Done with classes for a bit?
How to video. Two birds. But the second bird I run as the first very low, it is more complicated. So before falling boulders. Sorry for my english.
One bird. Aimed as close to the green pig on the string as possible and opened just after passing him (almost directly above geiser). The split should break the top 3 ice pieces (of 4) on the right that contain rocks and/or pigs. It destroys everything below and then debris comes back to the left to hit tnt and kill remain helmet pig and pig on string. You need luck to hit as many bonus blue ice pieces as possible.
Used slims one bird strategy but got lucky with blue bird bouncing off top of astronaut pig, then fired lazer bird for the last ice thing and got lucky with debris hitting ice to the right of gyser, score 159750 with luck :)
Your last shot was not needed unless you were going for extra points. One bird clear is possible as previous commenters have noted. There is no hidden piggie in that bottom left enclosure at least on my version.It becomes obvious after a time that this will be a one-bird clear because a good two-bird clear barely gets two stars.
I have best 2B at 149K+ and 1B at 153B+. Discovered by myself. Sometimes splited Blue hit Puffed Pig and bounce top planet.
165k with a lucky 1-bird finish. Well, lucky after playing this level for a week. One of the blue birds bounced and dislodged the remaing boulder compartment. Those boulders crushed the crystal below.
If someone manages the high scoring one birder, over 160k, even if it’s not the high score I’d love to see the picture. Thanks all
Did a Video much like the 2nd Walkthrough with slightly different 2nd. The first shot for you Bluestckers is x= 30.55 and y= 59.76 and you may just get that elusive high! If using 2 I think the first needs to score well over 120k. Here’s the link
