Angry Birds Mighty Hoax 3 Star Walkthrough Level 5-18

Our strategy for Mighty Hoax level 5-18 is to bomb the slanted stone plank with the White bird. Lob a Yellow bird through the wooden supports that are exposed by the preceding explosion. Fire the Black bird to land on the second level, above the couple of pigs in the middle of the level. Detonation can pop all pigs remaining. The score in the video below is 112,640.

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.

My method differs from the video.. I find it easier and higher scores are achieved by dropping the egg bomb on the right “side” stone slab. The next yellow bird is used to eliminate the 3 pigs on the left and weakening the structure by slamming straight into the left wood braces under the 3 leftmost pigs. The 3rd Bomb bird is arched high over the high middle part into the hole created by the 1st egg bomb. A well placed shot should break thru the wood plank and settle into the bottom of the structure before exploding. I just did this 5 times in a row with scores ranging between 115 and 123K.. I now have a best of 127,040…

I thought that I had above average scores on all of Mighy Hoax. So, when this was chosen for the challenge of the day, I was surprised to see that I was not only below average, but I was below it by 3,000 points. After reading this strategy, I improved to 125K in less than five minutes, and after a few more attempts pumped it up to over 129K.

It’s days like this when I love this site!

Excellent strat, thanks! One tip that I think helps: On the first shot, aim low. You want to destroy the bottom board on the ground in the process. This sets up the remaining pieces to be destroyed more easily by the black bomber.

Ths is a great stategy, I’ve been improving with it bit by bit.
A couple of things I’ve noticed. The more of the main structure standing for the 3rd shot the better. Sometimes the 1st yellow partially collapses everything, but the way everything falls seems to make the bomb less effective.
With the 2nd shot (1st yellow) if I aim lower & take out the “floor” of the first section, the bomb seems to do more damage. My higher scores usually were obtained this way.
@doctonynyc, way to go – up the leaderboard like a rocket!

Thanks, @karen68. After getting the 129K it took just a few more tries to get to 132K. I just clicked with this level for some reason today. I did it using pjdambra’s method (and @estar video).

LOL, I lied. I had watched E-Star’s video without reading the method from pjdambra. Hers is not the same! She did it with two birds, and so did I. I was also able to repeat it consistently. I hope this helps!

You took the words right out of my mouth @karen68! I thought maybe if yellow could do more damage then it would make life easier for blackie but not so,think that the explosion from blackie needs more “standing” structure. I can’t believe I’ve been quite obliviously happy on 123k using a totally diff strat! As @doctonynyc mentioned above,that’s why I love this site!! Thanx to @pjdambra & @e-star(again!!)

Nice scores guys!!! I have only managed to improve to 127960 so far but discovered the same thing @karen68 says about the YB…I thought at first this might be a good thing to get more wood collapsing but definately not. BB does much better with a “still standing” structure ;-) Any tips to add on where your first WB hits on the stone plank?

By karen68 (@karen68)Score: 132,050

Thanks @lesleyg. We’re conditioned to destroy destroy destroy in this game but that’s not always the case.
I never identified an ideal spot to hit the stone plank, as long as it was destroyed & the upright wooden plank it leans on falls left. Sometimes the horizontal plank it sits on was destroyed, sometimes not, I didn’t identify any advantage to this, the bomb goes through it if it’s still there. Happy flinging!

By karen68 (@karen68)Score: 132,050

Sorry @lesleyg, let me clarify, when you hit the leaning stone on 1st shot, the upright it is leaning on also is destroyed, the horizontal stone just to the left slides down to lean out of the way. Got confused for a minute.
