Angry Birds Mighty Hoax 3 Star Walkthrough Level 5-9

Our strategy for Mighty Hoax level 5-9 is to fire the Blue bird head-on into the first structure, popping the four pigs on the left side. Launch a Yellow bird through two of the small wooden squares along the bottom of the main structure, causing the tower to fall to the left. Arc a Yellow bird to reach the last pig, but be careful not to over-shoot him! The score in the video below is 71,130.

With a little bit more luck the Piggie on the right side also falls down with the second bird.
getting 10k extra :)

Indeed, the falling right pig moment does happen pretty often.

@e-star Thank you for the video. Worked like a charm. Picked up almost 10k.

followed exactly that strategy for 90.5k currently. scores vary a lot so persistence does pay off; had several 85k scores before. the 1st is not critical (as long as you have a path for the 2nd, remaining pigs and debris can be taken out by that 2nd). the 2nd is critical, so was concentrating on that, on making it go beneath the floor; don’t think there was a correlation between the scores obtained and how far the yellow bird got.

I finally got my high score by blasting the bird through three of the understructure blocks, causing a bigger collapse. I made that same shot hundreds of times…but for some reason this bird went farther. In this case, at least, my score depended greatly on how far the yellow bird got. If it doesn’t get the third block, my experience is that the best position for the most damage is at or barely past the second block.

why do they number the videos with numbers that don’t match the level, i’m subscribed to both angry birds and e star vids, which i love the fact there are video’s to show this or i’d probably not even come close, but the numbering….

Damage can vary significantly each time on this level. While I was trying to improve my score, hoping that last pig will roll off the back, I got quite a good score with a third bird (almost 81K), but that was the result of more damage than usual with the second bird. I finally was able to top it with two birds, but barely.

Patience is a key to this level. You can make basically the same shots, and have very different amounts of damage. I’ll take my score for now, but will probably return when I feel more patient!

That’s true about damage, given the general specifity of the shots, especially the critical first yellow bird. You’d think that the damage would be comparable each time, as you’re shooting to the same location, but hey… That’s just how it goes with AB sometimes!

Speaking of the yellow bird, it’s becoming ever so apparent to me that I need to be wearing my glasses when trying to shoot to such a narrow location…jeez these tired eyes don’t seem to be up to the job they once were!

The third bird (if your not lucky enough to get the right pig to fall) can be shot through the glass straight to get the pig. Its a few less points but if your like me and dont like lobbing them like that its a little bit easier.

If you’re having Facebook woes (I did)…BB all the way to the top of the Building on right (not a high arc, just regular); detonate immediately before impact. Structure will collapse, taking our right side, all pigs on right. The just blast through a YB on the left-hand structure. Easy 3*

Rank: Gold Flinger with 8590 points

Can follow up with 3rd YB if necessary, still get 3*

Before watching E-star method I’m followed own strategy and gets 86k pretty quickly.

First, launch Blue and split early, destroying by lowest 2 all ground piggies and by highest one – the left ice roof support. Second, launch Yellow by high arc and hit the long concrete roof block to it’s very edge. Then entire roof falled to both sides most likely – left side first and right side second.

This method seems much easier (i.e. less time consuming, because no troubles with rightest pig) for 80k+ scores, but has lower high-scoring potential. I think 90k is almost unreachable.

I got tired of wasting perfectly good destruction with the second bird because this **** pig on the right would not fall.

So I tried to get rid of it with the first bird.
The idea is to topple to stone on top of the house to the right.
So split early, and aim so that the top bird is landing on the base of the roof. From there it will continue and gently push the square stone to the right.

Here is the trajectory: http://oi62.tinypic.com/2hzn2q1.jpg
If the first shot is successful, it should look like this: http://oi58.tinypic.com/2w7k6iw.jpg

The second bird is exactly like in the video, hoping for a good destruction.

One side effect of the first bird is that the glass on the roof is somewhat weakened and more prone to complete destruction.

Here is the result of the second bird (sorry, only close up, since the level ended quite quickly): http://oi58.tinypic.com/30l0y1y.jpg

And this is the highscore screenshot: http://oi58.tinypic.com/2gws7df.jpg

Hope it helps.

thx to @asher for details and pictures.
first bird similar, but a little bit higher, split immediately.
top bird hit the stone on top-right, stone fall to the right and kill the pig on right side.
lower bird hit the upper corner from the little stone on top-left.
second bird activate immediately, the target is exactly like in the video.
bird destroy two small wood-blocks under the stone-planks.
hope for a big destruction.

@admins : Until recently, finding walkthroughs for ABO levels was easy. Selecting AB from the menu bar opened up a sub-menu showing all the episodes on one page – Poached Eggs, Ham-em-High etc. Now that sub-menu has gone, and all levels have been combined together in a 36 page spread. For today’s challenge, I had to scroll through 15 pages before I could finally locate Mighty Hoax levels. This is quite frustrating. Can it be restored to the previous arrangement, just like other games. It’s only ABO that has changed as far as I can see. Thanks.

@peejaydee27 Thanks for reporting this. I’m sure @birdleader will figure out what happened here. The sub-categories (episodes) are indeed missing.
