Angry Birds Space Red Planet Level 5-5 Walkthrough

Our strategy for Red Planet level 5-5 is to launch Red Bird into the north side of first Lava Asteroid. The bird should bounce just enough to hit the second Lava Asteroid. The resulting chain reaction will send debris south, destroying all the pigs.

I’ve gotten both a 133k two-birder and a 106k one-birder… the number of points you rack up by having the fiery asteroids hit the structure is pretty remarkable, although they do vary quite a bit. So for three stars, just go for a two-birder using the approach of the walkthrough text, and be patient waiting for the debris to fall favorably.

142040, one bird Higher score Strategy: Notice that there are 2 asteroids above the fiery asteroids. Aim at the smaller asteroid in such a way that you push it to the farthest fiery asteroid and your bird hits the middle fiery asteroid. (TIP: For this I used the stars on the background, there is one that fits perfect) Both asteroids should get into gravity field and just watch the destruction. This strategy has given me a steady (1/3) 132k (3 star) and already gave me a 142k score. I know there are at least 3k more because one of the diamonds did not break. But I will come back after finishing up the levels.

Nice score, @ohforfive !!! Did you get a lucky one-bird, or did you have to use two? My best one-bird so far was 142k. Had to use a second bird for my current score of 147k.

TIP for aiming the second bird, if needed: if the leftmost fiery asteroid and gem-crystals still remain, then aim for the 9 o’clock spot on the fiery asteroid. There is a dim star just outside the first gravity field to help aim. The bird will push the fiery asteroid into the gravity field and ricochet downward into the gem-crystals for 16k+ more points.

Seems that the highest I can get using that is only 140K. Thanks anyway.
I think it’s better to hit the farthest fiery asteroid with the Red Bird and the middle one with the small asteroid, the farthest one will fall down and obliterate the pigs, with the second one coming down later, wiping out the remainings and maybe the 2 diamonds on the left. 146k

2 Birds – 150k with a bit left in. Try to hit the rightmost fiery asteroid with the first bird, so it lands on the TNT. This should get around 70k(if it hits the blue crystals 90k+). With the second bird aim for the leftmost(first) fiery asteroid such that the bird also bounces to the middle asteroid and hits it into the field. It is hard to get everything right, but I managed to score 145k+ from like every 10th try.

Nice strat, @ffodor !!! Got 162k on third try. For that score, first bird scored 94k and got almost everything including some, if not all of the gem-crystals on either side of the field. On another attempt, I had a running score of 161k with everything gone except one lonely, stubborn pig left. Got so excited that I missed it with the third bird and “failed” the level. Hehehe… High scores approaching 170k or more certainly seem possible. muK :)

Rank: Avian Overlord with 16240 points
By Makin Bakin (@dseufert)Score: 169,920

Here’s the “how-to” using ffodor’s excellent strat-description on an iPhone:

1) While fully zoomed in, aim the cross-hairs of first bird at the vortex between the gravity field and the bottom of the cloudy horizon just above the bright star inside the gravity field, between the 1-2 o’clock position at about “1:30,” more or less. The rb will leave the gravity field horizontally due east, fly between the small and large asteroids, then push the rightmost fiery asteroid to the right and ideally explode on top of the helmeted pig just above the TNT. As ffodor mentioned above, you should have an average score somewhere between 70k+ and 90k+ after the first bird;

2) Note the bright star in the “1:30” position from your first bird. Now note the second bright star southeast of the first star at about the “2:30” position. Aim the cross-hairs of the second bird half way between these two stars. As ffodor described above, the bird will push the leftmost fiery asteroid downward and ricochet into the remaining fiery asteroid, pushing it downward, too.

ffodor’s strat is very repeatable. With practice you can score 140k+ regularly, perhaps 90% of the time. I’ve come to the point where, if I don’t score at least 90k after the first bird, then I reset and try again. HINT: the most I ever scored after the first bird was 96k, which doesn’t necessarily translate into a super high score. There seems to be at least some element of luck. I could be wrong, but with two well-placed, high-scoring birds–and a little luck, I predict someone will eventually take TOP SCORE in the 175k+ range.

I had the 1st shot pretty well mastered, scoring 80-90k, but it was the 2nd shot I was struggling with, it really helped to see it in action. I play on ipad & my background stars are totally different than in your video.
It’s hard to see where all the points come from, things explode so fast, it seems amazing to me that you can get 70k+ on that 2nd shot.

Thanks @ffodor for the awesome strat video. I have a PC also. Finally I got 161k with your method. The key to get 160k+ scores is to get 90k+ score in first shot. I got 94k in first shot.
Aim Red bird to the fiery asteroid, very close to smaller asteroid without touching it. It should throw the fiery asteroid to right place for 85k+ scores. First shot is pretty difficult than second one.

first bird hit the right asteroid in the middle, than he fall of the helmet-pig.
important for the second shot is, that the hollow-wood left from the big-pig (it fall on the big-pig)
is gone. crystals on left are destroyed.
second bird hit the left asteroid far above, than red bird hit the middle asteroid and push it a little bit to the right.
a part of the middle asteroid fly to the right and destroyed the rest of the stones.
again and again, i used the same shots

Thank you for the post and strategy. This one had to be one of the challenging and fun to accomplish. Two shots that have to be “spot on” to get the results in the 160s.
Started zoomed in but in the end being zoomed out appeared to work the best to obtain the results. With the first bird keeping it closer to the smaller asteroid seemed to produce more consistent results closer to 90k.
There is a star in the background that aided in aiming the second bird. Having the laser one click above the star seemed like the best location to get the bird to hit both planets. The second shot was my challenge. Hit both planets about one out of 30 times.
But in the end, did implement your strategy, thanks again.

How did somebody get 160k? I’ve been working on this for a while now and as far as I can see, about 150k is about as high as you could get with all that’s on there. Unless you had a random freak shot that happened to blow up all 3 of the asteroids and blow up everything on the planet with only the 1 bird. If it’s a legit score, then mad props.

Hey @kathy , I’ll try to explain, how i got my score. And I’ll try it in my best English…….sorry for that, not my mother-language.
1st bird: see pic 1+2, aim for the upper asteroid and try to hit him exact in the middle, so that he lands on the “helmet” piggie. If you hit him right, a small broken asteroid, went over the other piggies to the left and take the two crystals for 6000 points more. this is necessary to do with the first bird. mostly you got with this shot about 75.000 points, but about 1/10 times you got 90k and more. Don’t ask me what’s the difference to the other shots, i don’t know.

2nd bird: see pic 3+4, aim for upper side of the lowest asteroid, so that he went in the atmosphere and the bird bounces to the middle asteroid, which also went in the atmosphere to do the rest.

scores 145k+ are very repeatable with this strat, but for both shots a bit of luck is necessary.
I hope it helps, keep trying, and good luck.

Do you by chance have screen shots of the trajectory at launch and the path to the asteroid. from what I can see in the scren shots it appears to be the after shots.

I just managed to increase my score to 151,740 from 146,650 as the luck factor kicked in with 2 birds fired managed to get the first bird to push the asteroid onto the helmet pig and explode the TNT leaving some pig for the second bird to clean up.

Still chasing a 160K+ score.

You don’t know why sometimes it’s +90k? I might have the answer. I hated this level because I thought it is totally random. Now I think this is a skill level if there ever was one.

1st shot has to be on the pixel sharp then you’ll have +90 every time. I can’t tell you where to aim because here on PC it is totally different to your devices. But I can tell you what to look for. The fiery asteroid has to fall on the left half of the helmet. If one piece hits the other asteroid you were too far to the left, i.e. your aim was too high. The shot is perfect if the little piece just misses the other fiery asteroid by a pixel. If that happens you can bet a huge amount on the outcome beeing +90.

2nd shot is almost as critical. To hit both asteroids is not enough. You must push the 2nd asteroid a quite a bit to the right, pushing it down won’t give good results.

If you can do theses 2 shots +160 is guaranteed.

@happyshake – thank you for details. I followed your instructions and managed to improve to 164K today. I made sure I had above 90K after the first bird, and that the second asteroid is pushed not only down, but also to the right after the second bird. Although I learned to aim the birds, I still don’t understand how points are counted in this level. It does not depend on what is broken and how much stuff is left at the end. I had nothing left and only 150K, but when I got over 160K, there were actually a few blocks left.

I couldn’t find exactly the aiming points that others described but used the idea being zoomed in and the multitutde of background stars to quickly dial in the shot.
For me on the IPad, the exact line up is almost like slims video. Here is my suggested description.
There are three small medium brightness star lined up horizontally at the very edge of targeting path. I aim for as close to lining up with this “line” BUT NOT touching them for shot one.
Shot two is still zoomed in, just under the path left by the first birds, there are two stars right on the edge of the gravity field. The aiming point for me was just under halfway below the lowest( more more towards 3 o’clock) i.e. just touching it with the aiming line.
I was ab;e to dial this in in about an hour to get it to all fall together.
What I don’t know or couldn’t see is if I got one of the right hand side crystals. I suspect so but the level ended too quick for me to tell.
