just curious if anyone can confirm if restarting a lvl still counts the bricks you smash in it, im skeptical because my break 5000 glass/wood/stone achievments went off at the end of the levels

**update**

just had the 50,000 smash achievment go off, it too went off at the end of the level, I failed the level but i let the level end. so im thinking restarting does not count your progress, that or there is a delay on the achievments and i just keep getting it to go off at the end, but that seems highly unlikely

I am thinking this too but thanks for that.

Its a bummer there is nowhere in the game to see how many block you have smashed of each kind or even a total.

Simple solution, quit restarting your levels, and take the outcome like a MAN!! Lol jk

I just tested this out with the stone and ice 5000 achievements, you definitely need to complete or fail the level in order for them to count. I played the game entirely and most of the time reset the level before I failed or even 2-starred a level. Still had to play catch-up after beating the game to get the 5000 smashed achievements. After failing a level you can restart and that WILL count (it's how I unlocked my ice and stone cheevos). It's gonna be a long road to 250,000...

Someone has this achievement now and they confirmed you do NOT have to wait for the level failed/complete message to pop up. You can hit the restart level button before that. The other good news is that it's not glitched! It was done on Golden Egg level #14. There are about 60 wooden blocks on this level, it can be completed in about 10 seconds. So if you had 0 blocks, you would have to beat this level 4167 times, and it would take almost 12 hours of straight grinding.

This. I got "Icepicker" in level 2-12. I played this level for nearly an hour trying to get 3 stars, restarting the level after the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd bird (of 5 total). The achievement unlocked while I was still playing, after the camera scrolled back to the slingshot, not at the end of the level.

Maybe you have to wait for the camera to scroll back to the slingshot for the turn to "count", but they do count, even if you don't finish the entire round.

You do NOT have to wait for the camera to scroll back for the turn to count. You can restart at any point and it will still count any blocks you have smashed.

I got 50K and 250K by constantly restarting levels. Smash Maniac unlocked mid-level for me.

Whether you pass, fail, or restart, every block counts, and you will get your achievement. Worked for me and Zebrasqual, and we were the first two to get 200/200

huh, just got my smash maniac, and it along with all the other smash x achievments went off at the end of the level for me, i didnt restart any levels when farming, i just didnt trust it.

in total took me about 21 hours of hard farming Gold egg 14 to get it

that's way too much time of mindlessly smashing blocks instead of playing the game. i would have rathered 10,000 pigs or something like that. 250k blocks is just stupid :(

not as stupid as needing 50k boats in harbor master or needing 1,000,000 gems in bejeweled :mad: i did the 1m gems in bejeweled but im not wasting that much time on harbor master

Hell, 250k blocks is just stupid anyways. I've got every other cheevo on this. 50k blocks didn't pop until AFTER i went back to three star missing levels... so thats at least 4 more full playthroughs. LAMEST... 15G... EVAR.

07-20-2011, 02:04 AM
hmm ive just done 30k of blocks by constantly restarting by pausing not waiting for the level to end and still no 50k cheevo and i have my 5000 of all others which i unlocked way early in the game.. im thinking u have to wait for the option to restart?

Good news folks, I can confirm that you DO NOT need to wait for the level to finish for your destroyed blocks to count, my smash maniac achievement unlocked this morning (29/7/2011 08:50 GMT) the very moment the second wooden tower on golden egg level 14 fell. Keep at it guys, I spammed the level during my lunch break at work for three weeks, it does unlock eventually.

you need to use the football/rio golden egg level

I was playing the Rio golden egg level for about an hour last night. Wish I knew how much progress i made though.

08-18-2011, 07:05 PM
About how many blocks do you get on the football level? I ask because it's also 5 birds, so there's a blocks/second metric to figure in somewhere. It would be nice to know the most efficient level, empirically.

xANMLZxHELLFIRE
08-18-2011, 07:26 PM
I counted about 120 blocks, but even with 4 birds I cant smash them all.

I like the golden egg 14 level just because I can fling the bird without really looking at the screen. Still got a long way to go.

rianbattle
08-22-2011, 04:44 PM
i think it's amusing that some think you have to finish the level for it to count and others say you don't. i'm starting to think mine is glitched. i have 3 stars on every available level, and starting worlds 4 and 5 i made sure to finish the level just in case each time instead of restarting and i still don't even have the 50,000 blocks smashed. i have every other achievement besides these that and 250,000 smashed as well, so i know i have at least the 15,000 from the different types of smash block achievements lol. surely there's more than 35,000 blocks to be smashed in 4 and 5, let alone all the times i restarted to try to get 3 stars again on each level.

right now i'm switching between the football level and the other golden star level everyone says to grind on lol. hoping i'm not doing it for nothing.

EDIT: no, not glitched. FINALLY unlocked the 50,000 blocks smashed achievement after what seems like forever grinding on breaks at work. i guess i just flew through the 3 starring the levels after already having got them all on the iphone lol. idk if i'm gonna go for 250k, just seems like a bit much for 30gs lol. i'll probably get it eventually as long as they keep releasing levels to play.

if you haven't unlocked it yet, go to level 13-12, shoot a white bird backwards and drop his bomb just as he leaves the screen. this will give you a golden egg that can be found on the second page of the golden egg levels and is shaped like a football, had to find this myself lol so i looked it up

Except he isn't... It isn't the actual Rio version of Angry Birds, but a special golden egg located in one of the wp7 levels shaped like a football. I believe it was a promotional level for the movie with a sweepstakes involved. But they removed that part and simply made it a football golden egg. I have it on my phone, so it does exist lol.

Fyi, currently there are 22 golden eggs available with the latest update.

wow...rude much? i'm assuming master_shake misunderstood what i said. no need for name calling, especially on a level as low as that. and, as far as the football level, i already explained in the post he was talking about how to get to it.

hey mate nah i wasnt referring to you it was the guy on the previous page :) i dont know how your quote got stuck in there, it was purely the rio quote i meant to address. i was having a bad day too lol.
so the football level is definitely faster / better than the other egg?

i'm so sick of playing egg 14. the football egg seems to me at least to be slower. I unlocked 50k just as i finished 3 starring the first 3 worlds. i've been thinking about getting the last 2 words just to do something different but i want this to end soon. i've been playing it for at least 2 hours a day for the last week and a half and no achievement. what i wouldn't give for a counter.

BTW my high score on egg 14 is 108,410 hit it only once and haven't been close since

xANMLZxHELLFIRE
09-04-2011, 09:59 PM
Finally got it!!! 250K smashed. All i did was the football level over and over and I did not wait for the level to end before I restarted. I can't guess how many hours I spent grinding this level, but I'm glad its over.

I also just got it. I put on several movies ( I love Netflix) and blindly kept tossing the bird on lvl 14 while watching some movies.

Gunstar Chaos
09-06-2011, 02:31 PM
I've been doing egg 14 as well. If i reset right after the last block busts I can get 6 turns in per minute. So I should be looking at (starting at 50k) 10 to 12 hours. I've been doing it while watching tv and movies. I'm feel like I'm well past the hours. lol Got me thinking I'm doing wrong by resetting but I've read everywhere it counts.

UPDATE: Maybe an hour after posting this I unlocked this achievement. I can definitely confirm that that resetting counts. My achievement unlocked when the first block busted on the 1st tower.

09-27-2011, 08:32 PM
Damn 6 hours straight of playing golden egg 14 while at work since 50k and still don't have it. if they release another one and it has an achievement like this without any in game achievement trackingI think I'm going to pass on it.

EDIT: Crap I've probably played that level for 20 hours and still don't have it. Most the time I let the level finish because its easier that me hitting a bunch of buttons.

eDIT: finally got it after about 30 hoursish
high score is 108670

i just got the 250k blocks while sitting at the dinner table eating some cake while attending my niece's bday party. lol. i liked that about the golden egg 14 level. i could be doing about anything: tv, riding in car, attending a movie etc & just kept spam-swiping the screen every so often. at the party.

i started to believe (more than a week ago) that the cheevo was glitched for me. after only 5 more minutes of playing it at the party it unkocked. i almost screamed but no one there even knew i was playing!

btw: my highest score on lvl 14 egg was 109,000+

Aggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! Finnnnnally!! After what seems like an age smash manic popped! and you don't have to finish the level, it popped right in the middle of golden egg level 14! Thank god the Chinese water torcher for the 200G's has ended..

My simple advice is to persevere, don't play hours on end at one time, level 14 on the golden egg, gets you on average of 60 blocks, I'm sure most people know that or have worked it out already, it takes time.. But you'll get there!

Also I was grinding that level on and off over the last few months, I'd leave it for a few weeks then try again.. Just so I didn't get completely sick of the damn thing, although it has put me off angry birds for life! lol..

I don't think that'll help.

Looking at the leaderboards, two of my friends with the achievement have scores of 21,072,370 and 13,168,520.

After 3 starring all 3 worlds, I played Golden egg 14. I NEVER finished the level, always restarted immediately after the three towers had been mostly destroyed. I did this until the 50,000 achievement to make sure that restarting would still be counted towards my achievement for 250K blocks. I got the achievement after about 30 minutes of grinding this level, restarting each time.

05-23-2012, 08:56 PM
Same here... I absolutely hate the game now and couldn't delete it quickly enough after I got the 250k out of the way. After countless hours on egg 14 I cringe when I see kids at the mall with those big red bird t shirts on. Have to wonder what the developers were thinking with this one.

I don't think there is, but if there's any doubt about whether you can restart the level or have to let it finish... I am 100% certain restarting the level before it is complete is perfectly fine.

07-10-2012, 04:38 AM
just to clarify things, i got this today, by constantly restarting,so whatever counts, but as a matter of fact the achievemnt was a little bit delayed, paused the game to grab a drink and came back and the chieevo unlocked with the game still paused, took me something around 10 hours of golden egg-14 grinding, but i had the 3 episodes 3 stared, and the other 2 completed, so i would guess a total 15~18 hours play
hope that helps

07-11-2012, 01:48 AM
God this is such a grind. I'm grinding Rio and its taking forever lol. Probably need around 200 million points to get the damn thing. If there were no pigs it would take about 125 million to get 250 000blocks smashed if you count an average of 500 points per block, which seems to be what I see most often.

Edit...well that theory just went out the window. Either only high scores at to your points or actual levels. My high score hasnt moved and ive been farming rio egg level for a while.

With that in mind, anyone in the know if this game keeps your counter intact, i.e. your # of smashes would be continued or once i moved to my new phone I'd start from zero again? Cuz i believe game saves won't transfer over to... Anyone, pls? TIA!

Finally got it!!

Changed phone last month so had to start from scratch but I can confirm that Egg-14 is the best method and restarting before the results screen is 100% fine. All I did was play an hour a day for around 2 weeks and it popped fine. This was from scratch as this was the last achievement I needed on my last phone but obviously I couldn't transfer my save over

BlackRob182
11-07-2012, 10:11 PM
I figured if you do that level 20 times a day at about 60 blocks or 210k+ per level it should take around 5 months lol and that's after the 50k achievement. I think I'm 2 months playing after I unlocked the 50k achievement and still going with 5 plays here and 5 plays there. Usually I get 5-10 plays or more (or sometimes less) a day. I was in the hospital for a few days when the baby came I pretty much played that level the whole time while I was there in September. Still no achievement :( soon hopefully

Edit: My calculation only = to around 230k so theres still a ways to go but that sounds about right if you nail most of the blocks out of the 80 on the level?

Edit: Wait don't read that lol I looked this over again am I doing this wrong? I'm playing the level with the stone blocks and bomb birds. I thought blocks meant stone as in a block no? Are these counting towards my achievement then or no?

DuanieBaby

Anything that 'smashes' in game counts towards this achievement. This achievement is ridiculously tedious and boring -.- I find it hard to keep my concentration levels high when playing GEL14.

I purchased a nokia 900 and had to start all over again.....boy was I pissed.

Its been over a year since I started I think it was released june 2011. It felt pretty good when it unlocked.

Btw i manually reset the golden egg level over and over...no need to wait forit to reset itself.

I just broke my phone and hadn't popped this yet. Am I screwed for this achievement? My gf has WP7 as well, she's looking into getting a new phone, can I reset her phone and re-download this as a live title to play and pop this?
