Like the golden eggs in Angry Birds and Angry Birds Seasons, there are pieces of golden fruit hidden amongst the stages of Angry Birds Rio.
They change from theme to theme, with Golden Pineapples in the warehouse, Golden Bananas in the jungle, and Golden Watermelons on the beach. Here’s our guide to finding and saving every single last one of them.
Unfortunately, unlike the golden eggs, you’ll get nowt for snagging them, other than an achievement when you find all 15 of one type, and mad bragging rights among your buddies. Probably. Depends how easily impressed they are.
World 3, Level 2: This golden banana is hanging out in a box at the far right of the screen. Fire a well-placed yellow bird to smash it open.
World 3, Level 3: Are you looking out for that telltale label, yet? There’s one on the tree leaf at the far right of the level: slam it with an arcing yellow bird to grab the banana treat inside.
World 3, Level 7: This one’s hidden in a bushy patch of grass on the far-right wall of the stage. An arced yellow bird should take care of the banana hidden within.
World 3, Level 9: If you look closely you can see this banana poking out from the tree on the left, directly below the birds and catapult. Fire a bird at the tree to smash the banana out.
World 3, Level 12: Another box with a cheeky label, this time hidden beneath the right-most structure. Kill it with birds.
World 3, Level 13: This one’s hidden in a box that’s on a platform, floating above the action. Nail it with a yellow bird to grab the yellow fatty bean inside.
World 3, Level 14: No box or hiding place. Just a golden banana on the far right of the screen. Fire a yellow bird into the air, and smash it on the way back down.
World 3, Level 15: This one’s hidden in the grass on the far right of the screen. Use the extra speed-boost from your yellow or white bird to grab it.
World 4, Level 2: Another banana hidden in the grass on the far right of the screen. Smash it, young padawan. Smash it.
World 4, Level 4: This one is on the far left, behind the birds and catapult. You can’t see it, but there’s actually a wall off the left of the screen, which you can bounce a bird off to hit the ‘nana.
World 4, Level 5: This banana is hidden in the grass on the left of the monkey tree house. Unfortunately, the lumpy cliff face means you can’t fire a bird directly down into the shrubs, so you’ll need to fire up a tiny-weeny bit up in the sky and then drop back down.
World 4, Level 8: An easy one - this golden banana is hidden in the patch of grass behind the birds, to the far left of the screen. Drop an explosive egg to grab it.
World 4, Level 11: This one is in the grass on the far right. It’s too far for any bird to hit, so you’ll need to fire an egg out your white bird’s rear end, or use a yellow bird, to get the necessary speed boost.
World 4, Level 14: This little ‘nana is hidden in a box on the far right of the screen. Use a yellow bird to smash it open.
World 4, Level 15: The final banana of this world is hidden in the grassy patch at the bottom of the screen, to the left of the bouncy mushrooms. Considering the maelstrom of birds, bombs and rocks, you’re likely to hit it during the carnage, anyway.
