In Rio, the familiar Upset Wildlife have been kidnapped and taken to Rio de Janeiro. Just as in the unique Upset Wildlife, gamers use a slingshot to release birds at close by components, with the purpose of reaching objectives located on or within them. Instead of wicked hogs that have thieved egg, gamers must now save caged unique birds or beat wicked marmosets, with regards to the level being performed. Certain stages allow gamers to use Blu and Gemstone, the two lead figures from Rio. The experience also includes the first manager battles to appear in the sequence, when the gamer uses the birds to attack Nigel, the main villain from the movie, as well as new invisible items to gather as the gamer moves along through the activity.
