Angry Birds Mighty Hoax 3 Star Walkthrough Level 5-7

Mighty Hoax level 5-7 is very challenging, but our strategy yields consistent results. Fire the two Yellow birds into the small stone square on the left side of the main tower. After two direct hits, the whole tower should topple to the left and crush both pigs below. All that remains is a precision shot with a Red bird or two. Knocking a stone into the last structure will typically cause it to collapse. The score in the video below is 87,480.

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.

One of those levels where the variance for the birds make a big difference. After collapsing the tower several times my scores have been between 46-60K for the yellow birds. On the video the tower gives a bit under 55K so there is few thousand loose points there depending on how the tower collapses. Truly frustrating fact is that after getting big score from the yellow birds my first red bird does not fly where it should.

Used the strategy provided by AMslimfordy in the ABN video. If one zooms in and lines up the little bottom tail feather of the yellow bird with the edge of the yellow egg off the the left in the background and then actives the bird over the top verticle wood block on the top of the boat it seems to consistently hit the small block on the tower. The second shot as depicted in the video or by the tip mentioned by kartflyer above.

I’ve found, in order to accomplish the collapse of the tower within the video, one needs to aim the 1st yellow at the small vertical block sitting on the roof of the wooden boat. Accelerate yellow before you get to the block of course, and here’s the important part: don’t hit the compartment roof on the boat, or you’ll miss the target on the tower. With the 2nd yellow, just match the trajectory of the 1st.

My verdict is still out on how best to shoot red, as I’ve gotten it to work a couple of different ways, but you do need to be as precise as you can, because you want to take both pigs with 1 shot, so that those 2 remaining birds add 20k to your overall score.

In my ongoing quest to improve some of my “old” scores, I noticed a couple of things about this level.

I found the third bird to be the most difficult part of this level because it seems to be completely a matter of luck to get both pigs on the right with one shot. For some reason, I have no problem aiming the YB to consistently hit the small block on the first two shots, but I have much more difficulty aiming the third bird. I hit it in every possible way–fairly low (like the walkthrough), high on the roof, and lower on the roof. The only shot that doesn’t knock the structure over is the low on the roof approach. So, if you’re aiming for the roof, aim for the top of it.

Possible alternate strategy: I had one shot where the bottom of the stone tower actually fell to the right, while the rest of it fell left onto the boat and balls of water (“balls of water”–there’s a phrase that I will probably never use again in my life). I couldn’t repeat this, but I suspect that it’s possible to get a lucky two birder here if the stones can knock over the wood structure on the right AND get both pigs. For me, it missed one of the pigs, and then sufficiently surrounded him with the stone blocks rendering red bird useless. I suspect that this might explain the super high scores here.

It would be nice if someone with a score over 100K might be willing to chime in here.

@doctonynyc, i was on 101k (and willing to chime, LOL) before the “accident” happened. I think your 2-birder assumption is indeed possible as i was having a hard time to increase that 101k with 3 birds. Even a 2-birder without breaking the “balls of water” in sufficient amount won’t give a significant boost score-wise as those orbs are the main source. For the third bird, aiming at the long horizontal wooden plank just below the very top rectangular wood block almost guaranteed will kill both pigs for me. Again, it’s just a matter of luck… :)

My best result for the yb’s has been 63300 points with tower falling to the left. However couple of times I have had the bottom of the tower to swing right. On one time the bottom took care of the pigs on the right as well. Combining these would give 63K+10K for the two pigs+30K for the reb birds. 103K without counting anything for the wooden bulding. I guess 105K wold be realistics score with a truly lucky two birds solution.

By RdB

I got 3* on the FB levels, finally!

First 2 yellow birds as in the video – aim for the small block at the base.
After the structure falls down, shoot a red in the same trajectory.
In my case, I was lucky to have another small block still standing on the 3rd pillar of the ex-structure. My red bird bounced the small block into the wooden case, killing the last 2 pigs, and breaking enough wood to get 85680.

Okay, this is awkward (even for me who experienced it myself). I was playing this level last night then left it for a TV show after clicking the restart button. When i got back to it, the middle stone tower was already collapsed leftward. I only needed to use 1 Yellow at the far structure, taking out almost everything of it for 79k. It gave me a total of 119k with 4 unused bird. This is really not a strat but i thought it’ll be better to “share” this with you guys (thanks to the encouragements from a good friend). Here is a screenshot i just made for my highscore http://angrybir.de/UcW7au.

Nice score @birdjo! After reading your description I decided to take a few minutes and see if I could duplicate your “accident”. It didn’t take long to get a restart where the tower swayed significantly, so much so the pig in the tower popped. After three minutes, the tower looked like this:

Thanks, @bonneypattycat. I left it for around an hour as well (considering one episode of a TV series lasts for 50 mins or so). I’ve done that several times before got tired staring at the structure and decided to take a quick break. Do that a couple more times and maybe you’ll have the same “accident”… :)

Hey @birdjo, it happened! I was too tired to do any flinging that required any effort, so I decided to give this another go. Took about an hour of resets to get a mostly complete collapse of the tower. Unlike the earlier close call, I could tell almost right away it was going to fall. For the second bird, I was to chicken to go for the remainder of the tower and the right structure, so I went for the easier, safer shot. My score 104,490 turned out much less than yours, but still good enough for #2, and 9k better than my previous score.

@BirdJo @bonneypattycat BPC reported this in the forum on Self-Destroying levels. Any additional info you have would be useful. I am assuming that if you don’t see the tower start swaying within a few seconds, nothing will happen. Is this correct? I would say there is some swaying 1/5 or 1/10 times, but it stabilizes fairly quickly. Again, I am assuming that once it seems stabilized, it’s not going to move more, correct? The photo in BPC’s album is pretty amazing for something that doesn’t collapse. How often would you say it actually collapses? I think I have tried ~30 times with only slight leaning.

Oh, and if there’s anything i can confirm about this level that’s worth mentioning in the forum :
– I am assuming that if you don’t see the tower start swaying within a few seconds, nothing will happen. This is correct.
– I am assuming that once it seems stabilized, it’s not going to move more. This is also correct.
– How often would you say it actually collapses? 1 of every 1000 tries would be pretty much it (assuming it was 300-400 tries per hour) because i’ve been doing it for some 2 hours or more (perhaps close to 3) before getting my first and only collapse the other day.

And God, what a relief to have someone else experiencing the same thing. It’s a fact that is so hard to chew because i didn’t even witness the collapse. Thank you, @bonneypattycat… :)

I tried again this morning for close to an hour. Several times the pig popped and the tower swayed and crept to the far left side (once to the far right), but it always stalled just as I thought it would fall. The time it did fall for me, it leaned sharply to the left immediately after the reset, without much if any sway to the right. The pig in the tower didn’t pop until the tower crashed.

After a reset, I now look for a bigger than usual gap between the top of the right piling and the lowest horizontal plank. If I don’t see it, I reset within 5 – 10 seconds.

OK, I would guess that if you did it for an hour, resetting every 5 to 10 sec, that’s at least 360 resets. As I recall you also did an hours worth of resets to get it to fall the other day. So I’m going to say pig pops ~1/200 times for 5 K and tower falls ~1/1000 times. Sound about right to you?

The result: no joy. Unfortunately, in 75 resets, I couldn’t get one single pig to pop, or any structure to collapse on it’s own, or for that matter, to even sway in any direction. I’ll admit up front, that I can’t sit there for a solid hour continually resetting the same level without incurring serious damage to my sunny disposition, (or perhaps something more essential), but that’s a whoooole different matter! :-)

Another one of those levels I can’t break into the top 100. These levels require the rare occasional collapse of the structures. I don’t have the patience for that stuff. I’ll just have to go with my best 3 bird score.

The video method is the best way to I can see to score above the average. After hundreds maybe thousands of restarts I would like to note just one tip. To break the 90k mark just keep resetting after the 2nd bird if your score isn’t over 60k. My best score of 94k came after a 63k second bird. My highest 2nd bird score that I can recall was a 66k, but wouldn’t you know that I missed the 3rd bird shot. Frustrating level. I Must move on …

NEED HELP! I am brand new to AB, doing pretty good and received 3 stars for every level on Poached Eggs.

However, I am having trouble with Mighty Hoax 5-7. I have a score of 77,120 with two YB’s only. Which I thought was pretty good anyway and it would give it to me for only doing it with 2 birds. However, I was wrong.

I am on the PC Windows version. I have literally tried everything (I think) it does seem that you need a “blessing from heaven” to get it just right. Right now there is no way I can get enough damage done with only 2 YB’s to get the job done. I need the rest of the birds for points. Otherwise it is not happening.

I have the screen memorized by heart if someone could please give me a verbal walkthrough on some pointers on what to do.

Now grant it I have not see the video, but perhaps one could take a peek at the description again? I have noticed something:

—————-
Mighty Hoax level 5-7 is very challenging, but our strategy yields consistent results. Fire the two Yellow birds into the small stone square on the left side of the main tower. After two direct hits, the whole tower should topple to the left and crush both pigs below. All that remains is a precision shot with a Red bird or two. Knocking a stone into the last structure will typically cause it to collapse. The score in the video below is 87,480.
—————————
Okay… when hitting the small stone square, shouldn’t the tower fall to the “right” and not the left?

The two pigs below… the two small pigs inside the wooden structure to the right of the tower… or the small and large pig on the wooden boat?

I am assuming they mean “right” and not left?

Update: I have been getting consistent results on getting the pig in the tower to pop almost every time. What I have found is:

1. The whole tower is not collapsing. Only the first 2/4’s if I am “blessed” Mayyyybe one brick will come loose on the lower 3/4’s of the tower but that is only once in a great blue moon.

2. I am still thinking I need to complete this with only the two YB’s. (Because that is how I got my 77,120 in the first place and NEED those 3 RB’s @ 10,000 points a piece to crack that 80,000 score.

3. I need the YB #1 to hit the small square, go backwards and hit the small pig on the deck of the wooden boat. YB # 2 I need to hit the side of the panel where the pig in the tower is so YB #2 will go backwards far enough to crush the bigger pig in the boat all the while prayerfully the tower will collapse thanks to YB #2 and crush the two little pigs in the wooden stricter to the right of the tower.

4. So if you hit the “small stone” that it is talking about two times… the tower is gonna fall… if you hurl any RB’s towards the tower… you are just wasting time b/c they are not strong enough to move anything on that big tower… unless it is on the “brink” of falling to begin with and that is literally “pushing it”.

5. So far I have only increased my best score by 500 points to 77,680. This has been after MANY…MANY… MANY “resets”

Can anyone advise?

The text is correct.

The stone square we refer to is in the bottom-left corner of the all-stone tower. (Target the square, not the rectangle.) It will take two shots to destroy it. Then the tower will no longer be supported on the left side, causing it to topple onto the boat.

An observation rather than a strat – if you arc first yellow bird over the upright wooden pole on the boat and not into it, the angle it then hits the concrete block causes the tower to sway most of the time. Doesn’t always topple but often does, mostly to the left but once in a while to the right. Didn’t get big scores yet but achieved *** after just 10 minutes using this method.

I don’t have to tell anyone that this is a very frustrating level. I got no self destruction or even any “assisted” self destruction after the first bird as peejaydee describes. I tried all sorts of different shots at the small block and as far as I can tell, there is no discernible difference in the outcome. Scores range from the 40’s to the 60’s no matter how you hit the block. So…..just keep shooting the small block and eventually you will get a good score. I had 63xxx after the second shot when I got my 95xxx score. My third shot was to the small square block on the far right side although I can’t say that I particularly recommend that shot.

Agree with StockToad above. Was stuck at 98,000 for quite a while, waiting for a two-bird total at least 60k to fling the third bird. Just now got over 100k with only two birds. This was the second time stones toppled to the right, and No, can’t tell you what made the difference!
