Angry Birds Mighty Hoax 3 Star Walkthrough Level 4-21

The best strategy for Mighty Hoax level 4-21 is to loft a Yellow bird and speed it into the stone plank jutting out of the tower. Doing so will cause stone blocks to fall onto the two strongest pigs below: King Pig and his mustachioed assistant. Use the remaining Yellow birds to snipe the smaller pigs. The score in the video below is 89,340.

If you have a different strategy feel free to leave a comment below; however, don't just post your score via the comments, as that's what the leaderboards are for.

I used a different methode here, if you hit the tower just right with 2 birds it falls down, taking al the piggies down :)
Got 111580 this way.

Here’s the video

See ya all in a couple of days, when I have more video’s of different strats :)

I used this method, but it took three birds, as the tower rather stubbornly refused to fall as it should. That’s OK, as I still got it done.

@e-star Thank you for the video and alternate strategy. Just could not get all the pigs with the falling debris so had to use 3 birds. Worked great!!!

This is the way to go for 2 bird scores. I’ve even knocked down the tower with one bird ( once, very rare) but left a few pigs. But I guess a one bird kill is possible..
I like to hit the first yellow bird high as possible up the stone slab that’s angled to the left. The bird hits high then slides down and hits the triangle support block giving you a double strike. This will get it rocking right. I shoot the next bird as quick as possible to get the second strike while the tower is still in motion to the right.. You don’t want the tower to be moving back left when the bird strikes, as it will negate all the momentum. I can get it to fall at least 25% of the resets, the trick is to kill all the pigs. The last pig to the right is a real tough one to kill.. Good Luck …

that’s the method I use too. Two, sometimes 3 birds. i found the trick is to hit between the left triangle and the jutty out bit. and to fire second Chuck as fast as possible after the first one, trying to hit the exact same point.

@swanz I haven’t been back in ABO for ages (since the Power ups were added) and stopped… maybe when I find a big bag of time, I might return as well. Glad my video is still helping. Enjoy your flinging in the old levels!

Daar moet echt veel tijd ingezeten hebben in het maken van de video’s! Die powerups verpesten wel een gedeelte van de lol,maar ik gebruik ze niet. Eigenlijk maakt het niet veel uit want iedereen kan toch invullen wat hij/zij wil. Maar ik vindt het voor mezelf leuk mijn eigen scores proberen te verbeteren steeds. Ik kijk pas naar videos als ik op mijn eigen manier het niet meer lukt hogere scores te halen. Wat ik me afvraag hoe maak je zo’ n youtube filmpje van een bepaald level eigenlij precies? ;-) p.s ik dacht dat jij ook van nederlands e afkomst bent dus schrijf ik maar in het nederlands omdat mijn engels rubbish is.;-) Maar iecht heel mooi gemaakt al die videos! Mijn complimenten!

Edit by E*:
A quick (and hopefully a good) translation to English for the non Dutchies:

A lot of time must have gone into making the video’s. Those power ups really ruin a part the fun, but I don’t use them. Doesn’t matter really as anyone can add a score they want anyway. But for me the fun is in improving myself and I don’t look at the videos if my own method of flinging doesn’t work to achieve a higher score. I do wonder how you make all those video’s per level. PS I think you are Dutch as well, so I am writing this in Dutch, because my English is rubbish ;) But anyway my compliments on all those beautiful videos.

@swanz You are correct I am Dutch as well (yeahhh Dutchies!) and I understand it is much easier to communicate in our native language, but for the sake of the other viewers I have put a translation in to English in your comment and will continue in English, hope you don’t mind.

Thanks for the compliment, you are correct… creating the video’s does take a lot of work, but one thing lead to another and well here we are… a 1059 videos further LOL. My iPad is jailbroken just for this purpose (and ONLY this purpose). My husband made it work for me, so all I have to do now is press the activation to record and it will store all the videos on my iPad, which I download and edit in a video editing program on my computer to make sure I only have the “one shot” and upload it to YouTube and create the necessary playlists and tags. But besides the work that goes into it, it also is a great tool to view back what happened. So in a way it also saves my sanity when something happened when I wasn’t looking. LOL
I love helping all the frustrated flingers anyway that I can, the gratitude and love make it all worth it! And if you ever find yourself puzzled with a question, remember I am only a PM away :)

LOL @swanz no it is not, actually it is my least favorite game to play. I don’t care much for the ability to swap characters etc. My favorite AB game is Seasons (75% of my videos are Seasons)… the only game I completed and keep up to date. My plan is to continue my journey in the other AB games, but time always seems to slip away ;)

Eh… it might take a while, but the two bird method might be your best bet for this one. Aim your bird for the very top (as this structure is top heavy). If you can get it leaning just a bit, there’s a good chance you can knock it down completely with the second bird, using about the same place. Try not to completely destroy the long block sticking out at the top though, or you will lose the momentum of the lean. You may have to aim one of your birds slightly lower into the triangle below in order to avoid that issue. But the key is to keep your shots as high as you can.

The rest is luck. The upper pieces of the tower need to disperse, and kill all pigs.

I was stuck on 102K and then 104K forever and finally got it in two bird by hitting dead center of the triangle with same trajectory with both shots. I also tapped his power about two thirds the way or a little over half way instead of just before impact.

I was able to get the whole tower to fall over once with one bird by aiming high up on plank and tapping his power shortley after he left the sling. It made him push it over instead of smashing into it. He landed softer and pushed the whole thing over but the King Pig and the furthest pig did not die and I messed up on the second shot trying to get King Pig because there was no good shot avaiable to get him, he was blocked by concrete planks. So I definately think a one birder is possible with some extreme luck after the tower falls to hit everything just right.

I cant seem to get three stars either @maksims97

By Keef Rob

I managed to get three stars by shooting two yellow birds at the lower thin stone spire on the left of the structure, and then at the triangular one just under the left diagonal, in quick succession. The idea was to hit the structure and start toppling it before I hit the topheavy part. The entire structure fell over and popped all the pigs.

By Barbara Horton

I tried the above strategy until I was blue in the face. It seems that my birds don’t have the same power as the site owner’s birds. I tried a different strategy, which is like trying to get momentum on a car that’s stuck in the mud by rocking it until it gains traction. I aim, fire and immediately accelerate the first yellow bird at the point between the triangle and the long cement piece that’s at a 45 degree angle just above. (this is at the top of the tower). Once the first bird stikes, get the second one ready and watch the rocking of the tower. Aim, fire accelerate as tower structure makes a pendulum move to the right to take advantage of the first bird’s momentum. As Bill (above) says, the whole tower comes down and blasts all the pigs with two birds. My score was 111430.

Hi,
I am a newbie and this is my first entry. Hitting the top of the tower with two birds does work. The trick is to wait until just before impact to tap the bird.
When the tower finally fell, it took all the little piggies.

Hope this is helpful!!

This is great, I’m puttering around in this ancient level and to my surprise I get a 2-Birder just hitting up top where the left slanted plank meets the top of the tower, and when the tower went down it wiped out everything to the right of it.

I imagine that the top score for this level had to be a very very very lucky 1-Birder.

ps. One very important detail, I applied speedboost right out of the sling.

By SLGrib

Firing 3 birds in quick succession at the top of the tower (before it stabilizes itself) will cause it to fall on all the pigs.
