Angry Birds Flock Favorites Level 29-14 Walkthrough

One strategy for Angry Birds Flock Favorites Level 29-14 is to fling the yellow bird at the base of the first tower. Then send the orange bird into the top hallow blocks, and inflate upon impact. Debris should clear some of the pigs on the rope. Then simply wait for the balloon to float up, it will come down crashing. The score in the video below is 130,970.

Yellow Bird to the lower pig on left side, cutting through wood. Orange bird to the platform left of the balloon, manually inflating. Lots of debris left, so score could increase!!

Send Chuck flat, into the closest pig, and plow through the two vertical wooden pieces behind him. This gives scores up to 10k higher than the video’s first shot, and 20k+ more if you detonate that pesky center TNT. Second shot same as video.

Tip: To get the balloon pig to float away, you have to knock off everything below the highest dangling piglet (rope, piglet, rope, duckie). If you get tired of doing it by hitting the floating structure w/OB, just arc over the structure to clip the rope, and inflate OB after he crashes into the bottom right structure. Also, you can aim OB higher so he hits just under the left-facing wooden wheel. Inflate, and punt the wheel into the balloon.

first shot goes through from middle of first structure and hit the tnt directly. hard shot but doable. with explosion rectangle thing from top will fall down to left also. photo

second shot goes to near another rectangle thing and push to right then will hit pigs and balloons then everthing will go down. photo

Anyone have an issue with the Orange bird on this level that when he inflates sometimes he just *poof* disappears instead of deflating like a balloon?

I’m guessing that like many others, I was getting very frustrated by this level. I kept thinking “there has got to be a better way”.
After being stuck at 135k for a while, I finally broke through with a new strategy (and some luck). Here we go – this is a bit complicated to describe.
YB on about a 2 o’clock launch. Fairly early acceleration with the aim being the tiny left pig perched on top of the center structure. YB takes out little pig then bounces over and pops the balloons so that everything below it actually falls down and does some damage. YB actually flows and breaks the wood around the area where the helmet pig was sitting. Now you are hoping for some good damage as the entire right side collapses and (I think) the TNT gets pushed to the left.
OB on similar line to first bird aiming for the lower of the 2 metal box thingies on top of the center structure. Let it slam into the left side, which should hopefully jar it enough to kill the other small pig. OB then falls straight down where you inflate about halfway down (exact spot may vary and subject to a lot of luck). Pray for big destruction and 2 birds left.

yes, great strat @terpfan_42 . the first time i was playing the level i had been trying that 1st, but had no clue about a good follow up. following your advice, have been playing it now as follows: 1st speed up immediately to take out small pig and balloon, not bothering with the right tower falling down or not. 2nd as described, but no manual detonation, just let it bounce in such a way that the bird falls down completely and a bit to the left into the tunnel (say touching both the big and small stone). in fact this is quite repeatable as one can control how far the bird bounces back quite precisely by throwing it a bit higher or lower (for aiming i use the tip of the left curved feather on its head and the edge of the white patch in the background; the right tower falling down after the 1st usually only hinders this 2nd). hope for a violent expansion cleaning up everything, including all the big stones (worth something like 20k extra; once it was so violent that the trampoline was sent over the top to the right, emptying the left side completely, but unfortunately only a partial collapse of the right tower, for 162k). 165k- currently, 155k+ quite frequent (say every 5 minutes) and 170k should be reachable.

Wow, I figured after I had gotten 150k that I was done with this level but I guess not. I’m not surprised to see higher scores but 164k is pretty impressive. I’m up to 156k now and that’s actually with 3 birds because the small right pig up top didn’t die on the second bird, so I can definitely see the potential for it. The big explosion is just not very easy to repeat. Great score!

in fact i have been playing the 1st bird (straight through the pig, to the top of the sloping side of the triangle, so it bounces low (and often continues through straight); needs precision but easily repeatable with it) so that the top (brown) contraption falls down to the left, so that the pig on top is /always/ popped by the 2nd. the debris fallen down actually also helps to get a good 2nd, bouncing on top of it (mostly so when the wheel is up, but more often the triangle is up) to the left into the tunnel, increasing the chances of a big explosion. finally, taking aim for the 2nd is also easier, as the bounce back is weaker without the brown contraption on top.

a disadvantage of that 1st is that the right tower is often left standing after the 2nd, needing a 3rd, or does collapse to the right then but leaves quite some debris.

my 170k estimate is based on having still one undamaged big stone in case of the 164k score (but otherwise almost no debris left).

the first time all the big stones exploded was quite shocking (the score as well), but i was actively trying for it because i had been recently reminded by surfcow of the explosive power of the OB (level 29-5), and also because i was having trouble replicating your score when activating halfway down…

I think there is more to gain yet. On my ipad, I use the small horizontal green line in the mountain behind the sling, when fully zoomed out, to get chuck lined up to get him to hit the top of the triangle, as you describe, where he bounced through the rope, yet causes the wheel to drop to the left. Very repeatable indeed.
The boulders indeed is where the money seems to be. I don’t think this score necessarily will stand once more players figure out this strategy.

In an hour of trying, I was not able to master the first bird as described by @vuelva. Instead, I use a slight arc, activating late, aiming for top corner of the triangle. For me, it is about a 50/50 shot.

On my 163k attempt, the first bird did not go very well. The right side collapsed, and the TNT exploded. The wheel/triangle was gone. I did not expect much from the second bird, but it bounced nicely to the left into the boulders where it expanded and created quite a lot of damage.

Ditto @th22 – I’ve been at it for a while now and not even cracking 140! Nice to know there’s a potential for another 30 THOUSAND points (I’m not used to being that far off) but it’s frustrating not to see ANY improvement. I haven’t had to employ a whine in a very long time so I’m hoping this one counts. (But I’m guessing I don’t sound angry enough. Trust me. I’m plenty frustrated with this one!)

@stocktoad, @maiasatara, @th22 I’m really struggling here as well. More than half way through the challenge & the most improved score is still 25k less than the top score. That’s pretty unusual.
I know the OB can sometimes expand in just the right spot to create a spectacular outward eplosion but I’ve yet to see anything close. And as @piggysnort mentions above, a couple of times OB has dropped right down to a good spot, but when he expands nothing happens. And I mean nothing, not a single thing moves.
Maybe @vuelva could take another look at this level to see if he can help us poor mortal flingers out. :)

sorry to say, but i think also this level was changed in the birdday 5 release; tried the above strategy for half an hour or so without coming close to earlier behaviours or results (best scores now into the low 140ks). just from memory (didn’t make a video back then, but played it a lot) some observed differences:
– material seems to break much more easily now than before.
– in fact this wouldn’t be bad as it makes the 1st shot of the strategy (accelerate immediately to the brown contraption such that the hollow stone below it remains horizontal) a bit easier, albeit with a bit different effect: the brown contraption usually partially (the triangle) breaks upon falling down something which did not happen before (and also the surrounding left and right structures collapse much more easily.
– the 2nd shot of the strat is still possible, but is more tricky than before i think; before, i could control where the bird would fall down below; now i’m struggling just to make it fall down straight without hitting anything.
– still nothing would be lost, as the 2nd bird can be made to enter the tunnel, but then nothing seems to happen indeed. sometimes the bird inflates below ground level but that’s about it.

will try some more later tonight (after 11 in the evening here in the netherlands), but i’m not very hopeful (given that i am already pretty sure that ff levels 4 and 11 have been changed). maybe someone having both the pre-birdday5 version of this level and the current one could confirm the differences?

(btw: don’t know why, but i was not notified of your message this time, @karen68) @admins?

@vuelva thanks for trying this level again. What a shame if they’ve tweaked this one so the higher scores won’t be possible any more. I’m still trying just to get above average :(

Also @mvnla2 several times the wee pig in the left structure has rolled off & died before I fling a bird. Don’t think it provides any advantage though.

You’re welcome @maiasatara. If I’d managed a “puppy” score I would have had to ask if it were ok. I think so as it is no different than if I’d never updated but seriously Rovio what kind of QC exists?

I said I easily scored the 165k, but the closest after that was 158k : -(, so not that easy.

I think I’ll leave this version on Android & try a few more of those levels that I’m really really far behind.

thank you @justpast40 for the confirmation. i had tried a bit more last night, and didn’t manage to get big scores in another 20 minutes of play in the birdday 5 release, despite getting the hang of both shots again.

@stocktoad : see the abo general comments. i think many or even most levels have been changed in this release and some have become easier.
e.g. there’s at least 20k more to be had in poached eggs on ipad now.

before being able to say anything about QC one would first have to define what’s Q. rovio only writes in each update that they’ve made changes `to improve the user experience’. for example, i’m pretty sure that the underlying physics engine was/is used with different parameters in different levels (e.g in some levels stones break more easily, birds have more impact etc. than in others), and i guess that rovio is pushing toward making this (the behaviour) more uniform across levels and episodes. for another example, self-destruction is only removed never introduced afaik in later releases. one may argue that such changes do probably improve the user experience for new players, but they surely evoke mixed feelings among long time players; it made me even hesitate to start playing abo at all (hesitated for some months a few years ago after having `finished’ the free version), but then decided to accept such changes, having missed out on some big scoring possibilities, and to try my best whatever. i just install the newest releases immediately without looking back.

Perhaps it has been noticed that the first shot can be accomplished without accelerating YB. Just hit the little pig so that the bird rolls over the edge and takes out the small balloons under the suspended pig. The box will be carried up and when it drops will almost always destroy the right side for perhaps 80 k +.
