Angry Birds Space Red Planet Level 5-28 Walkthrough

Our strategy for Red Planet level 5-28 is to launch Blue Bird towards the center bubble pigs, splitting early. They should destroy all three bubbles. Then launch Red Bird towards the bottom lava asteroid to send it onto the bottom half of the main structure. Finally, use Terence to push the big asteroid towards the top half of the remaining structure.

There are four small asteroids between the bubbles full of pigs, aim the blue bird through the middle of the asteroids at the fire meteor. Split shortly after launch so side birds pop the bubbles and continue on to hit crystals. Ensuing chain reaction should destroy all pigs for a one bird finish.

Something is really messed up with the scoring on this level when you can take out both crystals and all the pigs in one shot and end up with 134,000 and one star, time after time. How are others getting 10,000 points better using same shot? Not complaining, just don’t see it. Are the 145Ks the rare exception or am I missing something obvious here? The level avg. is currently >143K. Thanks in advance for sharing any clues or observations. Aloha.

IMO, this is one of the hardest levels to three-star in any AB game. On my first run through the update, I got a lucky one-bird clear for 135990 on this level and I thought, “Excellent! Three stars right off the bat.” Then I watched as the score counted up… and only the first star lit up. I wondered to whom I’d have to sell my soul in order to earn the other two stars. So far, nobody has stepped forward and made an offer… (hint, hint).

Anyway, I did at least get two stars, but I’ve hit a brick wall at 137k. After trying it for hours, I have no idea how the one-birder can yield enough points, and I can’t replicate the video’s strategy. @hidayat1999‘s suggestion is a good one – it’s definitely possible to use the blue bird to get about 12.5k by aiming at the geyser at the very upper left corner of the screen and splitting just about when the bird reverses course. Theoretically, then, if you had 129k or 130k after three birds, you could try to make that shot to push you over the threshold, but, of course, it’s nearly impossible even to get that far. How @mvnla2 got 142k with four birds without getting those crystals by the Phoenix Lander is beyond me.

This is definately a weird scoring level. I think the differnce in scores comes from how many of those little black pebbles you get moving and pelting the right side.
I have gotten one birdies in the 137K – 140K range, a two birdie for 142K -143K and my highest with three birds for 143K, 145K and now 147K.

Here’s what scored the highest:
1st bird towards the big boulder. Split just under the big top planet, the big boulder and some of the pebbles should get the top right bubble pigs and go on to crush the center and top right pigs/structure on far right planet.
2nd red bird I slid in between the four pebbles between the two bottom bubble pigs and pushed the lava rock into the far right structure and the explosion took out what was left of the right structure and pigs.
3rd, I set Terrence right between the same four pebbles as the red bird but since he’s fatter, he will cause the pebbles to go in each direction, popping both sets of pigs and getting the crystals. Some more of the pebbles got in the wave of the bottom geyser causing them to bombard the far right structure before timing out. I got 145K and 147K this way.

I also got this second bird to bump those four pebbles and get the both bottom bubble pigs and go on to push the lava rock into the right structure but the scores were always lower so I went back to slipping in between the pebbles as noted above. Terrence does a better job of getting more pebbles and debris.

By the way, here’s another strat that worked a few times… I sent the first bird up to the very top left geyser and split them just before impact on the left side so that they took out the little blue pebbles and cyrstals at the top. The highest I scored up there with blues was 15450, getting all of the crystal and alot of the blue pebbles. It’s over 10K so I think there could be something good there but I couldn’t get the follow up shots to score high enough.
The second shot was red through the four bottom pebbles so that he bumps the pebbles enough the pop both sets of pigs, get a cyrstal or two and go on to push the lava rock into the right structure.
Then Terrence to the stone boulder to push it into the far right structure for clean up. I got a few decent scores this way for about 143K.

I hope one of these helps…GL ;-)

@lesleyg You’re a savior! This got me three stars within fifteen minutes. That third shot with Terence is pure genius. I didn’t dare mess up a three-star score by shooting the blue bird up at the top, but 150k+ would definitely be possible this way. Terence missed one of the crystals on my three-star attempt, and 144.5k+3k+15.5k-10k would be 153k – good enough to be in the top five on the leaderboard. The trickiest part of the strategy is getting the boulder to end up in the right place, but since it’s the first shot, it doesn’t really matter that the success rate is low. And overall, it’s a sufficiently easy way to earn three stars that I retract my “one of the hardest AB levels” statement from above. Thanks again. :)

3 birds

1st bird like everybody between the 4 boulders taking out crystals and pushing fiery asteroid. If the top pig survives – no problem.

2nd bird high arc towards left rim of top left geyser. Takes out 3 crystals (sometimes with practice and luck all 4)

3rd bird straight onto big boulder destroying all whats left on planet.

+150k is a piece of cake with that method

This level is pure genius – congrats to the game developers. Here they give you an easy one-shot finish, yet it will take you nowhere near the maximum score. 2 shots can give you better results, but highscores only with three shots!

I was wondering how the +160k shooters did it, I only knew they didn’t do it the ways described here. Then it struck, the only way to get into the 160k-range was to use the black rocks floating around – but how?

Here’s the answer, I was able to improve my score to 157 and 161 in an hour and when I had 161 there was still a crystal in the middle left. I’d say with the following method 165k can be done.

1st shot to the big boulder top right at 2 o’clock. Make sure that either a bluebird or a rock overtakes the big thing and busts the 3-pig bubble. The big rock will be pushed onto planet surface. For real high scores you must land it on the northern 2 structures (very difficult!) It usually will be blown onto the middle structure, which will give you scores in the 150s. This shot is quite difficult. I aim a little bit over the middle of the big thing and split about halfway. You’ll find out yourself. The score can be anywhere from 50k-70k after the first bird. For my best a only had 55k but the 2 northern structures were flat.

2nd shot is difficult again – shoot red bird up to geyser and get all 4 crystals. The good thing with this strategy is that you have plenty of time to aim, because there are many pigs left alive after shot no.1.

3rd shot – difficult again. Squeeze Terence where you usually shoot bluebird, between the 4 rocks below. You must get at least one crystal, all pigs and push the fiery asteroid between the 2 southern structures.

This is a skill level. That’s why I love it so much. I hate to do the same easy shot over and over again and wait for a different outcome. Some say thats the definition for insanity.

By goavs4 (@goavs4)

My strategy is essentially the same and I have had several 160K+ scores but my 163K score was obtained by my initial strategy which simply reverses the 1st and 2nd shots mentioned by HappyShake. It’s possible to destroy all of the top crystals with the first shot (15440 score), firing directly at the geyser and splitting late. 2nd shot RB into large Aseroid and black rocks as described in HS’s 1st shot scenario. 3rd shot exactly as described.

A lot more points to be had here, on one attempt I had 159K after using all the birds, I had to use the last BB to topple the top right tower which had refused to fully collapse and kill the pigs there, so it seems to me a 170K score it not out of the realm of possibility with all of the black rocks and planetary debris to collide/crush. Had the tower collapsed initially I would have had a score of probably 165-167K.

This level needs a huge dose of the L-factor, “hopefully it will do this” & “hopefully it will go there”. I’ve managed a few scores over 150k & my current 160k this way.
1st bird – aim at the boulder, just along the underside of the 3rd small rock down. The tracking line passes under two stars, a bright & dimmer one. Split the blues just as they pass these stars. A smaller rock or one of the blues goes past the boulder to hit the bubble of pigs & the boulder bounces off the structure in the middle. Hopefully it ends up getting pushed up to fall on the north tower, but I’ve also had that tower taken down by one of the blues or small rocks. If not, the boulder will take out the middle building.

2nd bird – I’ve found this the hardest one to consistently work, going for the top crystals. Aim towards the left side of the opening, there is a star right before you get there though it’s sometimes hidden by the moving background. Go slightly left of this star, then cross your fingers. I can usually get 2 or 3 but not often all.

3rd bird – send Terrence in between the 2 pig bubbles towards the lava bomb. I aim him slightly below centre, so that he just clips the edge of the 1st lower small rock. This bumps the lava bomb more towards the bottom structure on the planet, & if you’re lucky, a piece of it will arc over to hit the north building if you didn’t get it already. This also causes some of the small rocks to fall onto the debris for a few more points. This gets the lower of the 2 middle crystals, but usually not the upper one.

It’s hard to describe the score you’re aiming for after each shot as it varies so much. I usually took the shots no matter what, if only for the practice. Good luck :)

I just couldn’t seem to aim Red in the right postion up there to get all the cyrstals and glass pebbles, but sending him every so slightly to the left of that faint star worked perfectly, Thanks ;-)

Here is the easiest method that I have found to get between 145,000 and 150,000. It is probably not useful for the 160,000 area score. This strat is especially good if you are having difficulty with the upper crystal shot.

1st Bird- As @drewguy describes way up at the top, between the 4 small rocks. Hopefully, if you activate at the right time, you will get both crystals. A one birder is common, but not particularly desirable. You do need to take out all 3 groups of bubble pigs. If you do get the one birder, you will need to hurry on the next 2 shots although this isn’t one of those dreaded premature calculation levels.

2nd Bird- Aim the same as @karen68 ‘s first shot. That is…. at the boulder, just along the underside of the 3rd small rock down. Unfortunately, you don’t have the luxury of watching what happens after you shoot, because the next shot needs careful aiming and needs to be shot before the level ends.

3rd Bird- This is the best part of my method. I’m sure you have tried getting those nasty upper crystals with both the blue bird and the red bird. Well, getting them with Terence is much much easier. You need to aim so he hits along the bottom of the left crystals and rolls along to the ones on the right side. Another way to look as is to pretend the crystals aren’t there and you just want to roll Terence along the red rock from left to right. Like I said, you need to get this shot done before the level ends, but it isn’t a matter of shooting as fast as you can.

I’d like to thank everyone above that posted strats! if I mention them all the “awaiting moderation” delay will hang this post. so here is what I did.
1. BB up toward the geyser. I aimed directly at the faint star that is hidden by the passing clouds. wait and a break in the clouds will make it clear to see. I split at about 3/4 of the way towards the crystals. You can adjust from there to get at least 3 crystals. On my score I got all four for a score of ~16k.
2. RB towards the big boulder above. target the little lava rock right next to the boulder. RB will break through and scoot around in front of the boulder popping the bubble that would otherwise stop the boulder dead. On my score RB continued past the far tower and took it down while the boulder took out the middle.
3. Terence low between the 4 lava rocks. if you cheat to the upper or left side (depending how you hold your device)so that Terence actually hits the upper pair it will drive the rocks forward in the the center crystal while still allowing him to connect with the lava ball.
Lots of points left here and a score of 160+ is most definitely attainable
