I have been lodging the bomb bird in the hollow top block, of the stack of three. This takes out part of the bus and first tower, along with pigs in center. Next bird, set off egg bomb, so he hits the next tower, and takes everything out. Two birds left. I think there is a one bird solution.

@sunshine Thank you Sunshine for the Alternate Strategy and description with the stack of three hollow blocks. Gained over 18k in points. Did the one bird solution many times. Scores were from 144k to 161k. Bomb bird in the same area as you described but it sinks to the bottom block. This was a fun level watching the debris fly.
Used 3 birds to obtain this score. First one like you described and the next two on the far right structure.
What is really impressive is E-star’s video with 112k on the first bird. Wow!!! Thanks E-Star for the video.

I did somethig like this, putting the bomb bird on a high, tight arc, and had impact take out two hollow stone squares. Detonatin then took out most of the leftward stone structure as well as the entire front half of the bus. Usually some of the wood from between the stone towers lands horizontally, giving you a corner to shoot at with the white bird.

Two bird used, two birds unused, net gain of 16k points.

Same aim as you sunshine but I wait until the bomb bird lands on the bottom stone of the three, the tower then topples to the left and destroys more of the bus. I got 110k with my first bird. Then drop the egg at the bottom of the next tower which also topples to the left causing more damage.

Managed a one bird- total fluke, as I self detonated the bomb by accident when it first hit the tower. Only scored 125190 as only half of each tower went over and there was not to much damage on the bus.

Second one birder tonight on this!!! Bomb bird went in middle hollow stone of the three at the bottom – I self detonated it again and it took down both towers – score this time 158900.

So I have 1 bired several times and have consistantly gotten better scores. But not high enough to be great! However those of you with bionic birds could prob make it work better! I hit the first hollow brick just above the long brick and if it goes deep enough and you let it go off by itself it does a good bit of damage to all three, the back to middle of the bus and a lot of the 2 towers! I tried activating but bb doesn’t do as much damage as he does on his own! 164640 is the highest I’ve gotten so far with this strat!

I came here to post my strategy only to discover that @kimmiecv had beat me to it. Great Italian minds, eh Kimmie? Lots of damage on 1st shot, over 100 pts. Challenge for me is getting the white bird to knock down the 2nd tower. I’m still trying for more pts.

180,080 w/2, 1st sent low arc to the pig on the top of the bus and roll off front, some times you can also drop the entire front tower for 119-123k. on my 180k I had a 122k 1st. 2nd, w/b to just above the horizontal in 2nd tower midway up and drop the egg a tick before impact. Fun level, GL.

Nice score @DonnMega. And thanks for the strat. I was actually able to replicate your 1st shot a few times, but I could not get the white bird to destroy the tower. What’s GL? Thanks again.

@duffy GL means good luck I think – something needed as usual! I sent my 1st bird into the 3 hollow blocks as described above & had the best scores when it dropped down onto the bottom block, then manually detonated. I found I could consistently get over 100k, I had over 115k with my current score of 174k with the left tower gone & less than half the bus left.
I couldn’t get DonnMega’s shot for the 2nd bird to work, but with the front part clear I went in on a lower arc & dropped the egg just past the front of what was left of the bus to ricochet to the top of the right tower, ideally to hit aroung the upper long horizonal stone plank that sticks out the side & the blocks beneath it, hopefully that knocks the whole tower right.
As usual took a whole lot of tries. Happy flinging!

Thanks @karen68:) for explaining GL. I should have figured that out. I’m back from watching a couple taped programs and off to try this Challenge again. I will try your 2nd shot. Thanks again.

ty donnmega@donnmega for strategy. Like karen68@karen68 I couldn’t get the second shot. I found that I used your first shot and wiped out the train pig and weakened the first tower then I used the wb, egg dropped at base of first tower and ricocheted to push tower into second tower which collapsed to give me the score.

@karen68, @windwalker – good shooting you two! I just couldn’t get that white bird to break the second tower so I’ll just enjoy your scores for this level!

I also have duplicated @donnmega‘s first shot but not the second shot. My best has been a one-birder, aimed to penetrate the same hollow blocks described many times here, but with the unusual outcome of toppling both towers and a good deal of the right half of the bus (177,000).

I was trying to find some strategy where I could still score high but have the pig on the train as my last shot. One thing I did was to arc the BB high so it landed on the horizontal plank between the 2 towers. I got a 1 bird for 169. Not a bad score for a 1 birder on this level altho not hugely high. I’ll take it tho. Will keep trying (sigh).

By Ravnicrasol

I’ve aimed at the top of the tower, in a very high arch, towards just to the left of the wooden “roof”, the block at the right of the helmeted pig.

In one blow it killed all of them, and I got 155560 points

By Hannah Williams

I aimed for the square below the ‘hollow’ square as used in the strategy above, destroyed all pigs in one blow and gained me 3 stars and 158,600 points!

Finally! A huge amount of time and effort but it was worth it. Thanks to DonnMegga and Manu for getting such high scores in the first place that made me believe it could actually be done.
