Angry Birds Poached Eggs 3 Star Walkthrough Level 3-20

Our strategy for Poached Eggs level 3-20 is to lob the first Black bird to land above the fourth pig. The explosion should leave only two pigs in the first structure. Use the first White bird to take out the leftmost pig. Loft the next Black bird into the left side of the right structure, detonating to shift the blocks rightward and popping all pigs within. Use the remaining two birds to take out the mustachioed pig in the middle. The score in the video below is 112,230.

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.

1st b/b- To the second horizontal sloped stoneblock so that Black lands near the second pillar but a little deep.

2nd w/b- To the second castle but dont explode till you reach the castle. Explode when an inch near to the castle killing all the pigs.

3rd b/b- Cleanup! 20k Bonus!

I did this different. First bird high arch, land on roof sloping down, right behind the 4th pillar. If it lands deep and explodes right, it will take out the back two pillars, sometimes the force will even knock out the front one. Second bird, same as you, pushing the whole back structure over. Next bird as your first bird, or whatever is left to destruct. Got over 141k this way.

I used this on PC, a mixture of @iammighty and Slim’s walkthrough. Got a 14k score boost, and this was the last stars I needed in PC Poached Eggs for the GE. So, it’s good all around. :-)

I will try, its a fun level to revisit. But for now I’m keeping focused on the aks at hand… Playing as much levels (and recording and putting everything on youtube and if its a different strat placing it here in the comments) before the new AB Space that’s coming the 22th of March (which offcourse i’m going to buy, play, record and upload as soon as possible). I’m just starting the levels of ‘Danger Above’ for the first time (just counted the levels I still have to do, 198!!!) so maybe you can imagin how much playing/work i still have to do.

If I revisit this level, i will press the record button and if I improve my score, you’ll be the first to know :)

Glad to hear you were able to improve your score using my method. I don’t know how to record my games on the iPad, and often it takes hundreds of retries to get that magical score ou are trying to achieve. In some levels, it’s technique, in others it is just a one-time lucky shot. I had that happen in 6-15 yesterday. Same technique each time, then hit a lucky shot and increased my previous score by 10k, setting the second highest score on this level.

I’m excited too about space, but have to decide if I will get it, or try to achieve 30 million here first.

On very rare shots, this technique will yield the nearly complete destruction of the entire first area, killing all the pigs. Then all you would have to do is topple the second area with the white bird, which is much easier, but still it doesn’t happen every time. I haven’t been lucky enough to do it.

By murash (@murash)Score: 155,170

I agree with Bill.
With first shot, like the one from video, it’s possible to take down entire first area.
Second shot would be to shot the white bird with lower angle and to release the egg in front of the structure, so that white bird pushes all down the hill.
But you need to have A LOT of luck with both shots.

Rank: Explosive with 2075 points
By Vaporizer (@vaporizer)Score: 141,950

Well, the first shot is really ‘random’ (the black bird has to turn over to the left a little, that really helps), 2nd shot is actually quite easy. I think you could still make ~150k with 3 birds. But you will really need some luck for that. 141k is my best, but I hope to have that lucky shot sometime to do this in 2.

147k with three as described by @iammighty: first to up-sloping part of the roof (50k+, taking out at least the two leftmost pillars), next the rightmost structure (90k+, low arc), and finally to the down-sloping part of the roof (110k+, coming to rest directly on top of the one but last pillar), each shot as described in other comments. only a few blocks of both the building and the rightmost structure remained and 2 birds bonus. 150k should indeed be possible with this strategy as i have had better collapses of the rightmost structure.
anyway, next time i will try to improve my score for this level i will go for the strategy described by @pointdexter5 because the building is not symmetric: the rightmost pillar will not collapse by a bomb bird on the left part of the roof, whereas the lefmost pillar (and more) may collapse by a bomb bird on the right part of the roof. from the other comments and my own experience i guess 160k should be possible with 2, but very difficult.

By James

I’m wondering if this is actually possible at all on the Facebook version- I’ve got 3 stars on almost every level, but can’t even get one star on this one, and had to use an Eagle to get past it at all.

Even following the guide here is getting me nowhere..

By ddw

I seem to have the same Facebook version as James, even using the technique in the video doesn’t work. The birds and the blocks in the FB version just act differently, I guess. I had to use the Eagle as well.

The angle of that bird seems way to high. I have shared my strategy on this higher up, but have not player the FB version, nor will I, so I can’t comment on that aspect. But I know when I shoot de white bird to take down the back structure, it goes just over the top part of what is left of the larger first structure, then drop the bomb right before hitting the wall. The angle in your screenshot, shows this bird coming in from a high arc, which I don’t think will ever give the same result.

By myssmeow

This one is very tough but then out of sheer luck, I’d say, I finally got all of them. Facebook folks need to catch the golden egg on the block way above the second building. You may not notice it because the other people’s score is in the way.

3 birds strategy.
I tried a strategy same as the first bird of the video.
While it was repeated, the first structure inclined to the left side, and most were broken leaving two supports and flakage.
I broke a piece with the second chicken as much as possible and destroyed the right structure in the third birds.

By caviar 101 (@caviar-101)Score: 150,340

Very high score (I have 150,340) is possible but rare using the approach described by Pointdexter5 on February 22. First black bird needs to wedge as deep as possible into the roof just to the left of the level of the next-to-last stone column of the large structure (but still in the roof above where the columns are). Allow the bird to explode on its own. Although many such shots will cause only moderate damage, every once in a while all 5 pigs are taken out, along with one or more of the stone columns. After hundreds of attempts, including at least 50 with all 5 pigs taken out, I just had a first shot that not only took out all 5 pigs but also all 6 stone columns. One-bird score at this point was more than 80K, but I didn’t write down the exact amount. This lucky shot left the smaller structure on the right wide open for attack by the second (white) bird, which needs to be detonated at the perfect location just to the left of the left-most column at mid-column level, such that almost all of the structure collapses to the right, getting all remaining pigs. Thus, success with only 2 birds, 3 unused birds for 30K bonus points, and a total score of 150,340. My suggestion is to practice making the second shot when the smaller structure is wide open, so that when you get a lucky first shot you have a better chance of following through with a really good second shot.

Find that with the first shot you have to get it to go through the angled stone bar second from the left and then it has to break the small horizontal bar so it snuggles between the pebbles. 2nd bird as described by caviar and pointdexter and third bird to clean up, all columns were down.

Came close a couple of times to that remarkable first shot described here, with scores of 70k+, but of course in true Angry Birds choke fashion I messed up the second shot. I found this to be a very unpredictable level, what appears to be a poor first shot can still produce a good score. With my current score of 138k I only had about 30k after the 1st bird (using Poindexter’s method) but I got some ricochet damage from the white bird, plus most of the right structure fell down the right side for more points. Somehow the 3rd shot (same as Mighty’s 1st) did enough damage to improve my score by 4k.

Hi,

I just want to bring a little precision about the first bird:
it needs to land indirectly between the two tiny stones (by landing a little bit on the right of them) which are between the 4th and the 5th pillar and it is very important to detonate the bomb when it is housing between those two tiny stones (after landing on the right, the bomb goes back on the left). Look at my pictures:

http://www.angrybirdsnest.com/members/bastieroxxor/album/picture/8051/

Nothing special for the second bird.
To record my 155k, I get 83k after the first bird..

thanks @bastieroxxor. this time did as you wrote. definitely the way to go: every half an hour or so a 150k+ score, but found it difficult to get top score, because hardly ever got a good 2nd. finally got top score for the moment after 86k after the 1st. was sometimes also playing the 2nd if just the columns to the left and right of the second pig (from the left) would be standing hoping that structure would be taken out by the ricocheting carcass of the 2nd. got 153k with that. it can even be taken out with the 3rd, usually sending it straight just above the left pillar. in fact, got the most of my 150k+ with 3 birds in that way, the best score with that being 154k. still think that 160k should be reachable, but probably not easy (and then with 2 not with 3 birds, as i never got more than 139k destruction with all 5 birds, which was with very little debris left; was playing for full destruction on failed attempts just for fun).

I lobbed high aiming the black bird towards the third upward sloping stone, towards the middle just past the third pillar. If it lands right it buries right in. Then high arc the white bird so it gets into between the two structures, and the bounce after releasing the egg pushes the structure over. Last black as deep as possible into the remaining stone on the first structure to clean up.
