Anyone have a tip on how to get over 121K? I’m sure it’s w/ 1 bird, but can barely crack 120K. I’ve probably played it 300 times, and just can’t get a break, hehe…

By linda

omg. got it on the first shot. well it is payback for playing about 500 times on 4-11 on Beach Volley. that level drove me insane.

By mills

Anyone know how to get the pineapple package behind the rocks on the top of the crates? I bet I have tried this a million times and I either hit the corner of the crate just above it or over shoot it entirely. It is driving me bonkers!

This a one birder, you have to aim the first bird high, like the video but a little more debris, for a reference if you aim it to go over where the fan is in the background, try to go through the bottom right of fan and split sooner than video, for a reference, split when your bb lines up with the staight line in the backgound that runs thru the fan , the top split of bb needs to hit like video but i found that by the slightly lower shot and sooner split it cause the first horizontal stone block to fall back too to get that extra ice debris on very front of structure…gl

Definitely 1B with some patient. Violet single cage bird is very lively.

Had gotten a one bird knockout before but the score was around 113000. I tried hitting the ice block underneath the upright stone block at a different angle with the top bb and BOOM, pure chaos and my score went up to 120140. What a difference! I’m realizing how important taking out all the extra boxes and blocks really is.

I was able to get 128410 on my droid. Somehow I broke the solid blocks on the far right. I tried for hours to repeat on the iPad but no luck.

Hi – just trying to improve some scores and think the hi score looks a little high (about 14k above 2nd place).
Just like to add that the individual leaderboards are great and make it easy to focus on levels to improve, so thank you all at ABN.

Cheers – I’ve made a few typo’s myself in the past.
on a seperate issue (and i know it should probably be posted elsewhere) but do you know if/when Rovio will make AB space might available for a 2nd generation ipod touch?
Thanks and have a Happy Easter

Guarantee 1 bird shot! There are 2 stacks of crates on the left.The one the sling shot rests on and the one behind it. Pull blue down so that he lines up between the stacks ( the gap between the stacks) immediately upon release split blue and he will break the ice on the very top stack on the right and your one birder will happen every time !!

Thanks so much for this strategy. I was never able to go above 119k. But using your method, I hit 123+ and got into the top 50 for the Challenge.

Additional Note:

Don’t automatically restart if miss a one birder with this method. I scored 122+ using a 2nd shot for cleanup.

I wonder if there has been a change to this level in recent updates? Successfully made the shot as described, but it doesn’t result in a one birder “every time”. In fact in 5 successive flings it only gave me a one birder twice. Still the best strat though, and I’ll keep going to try and improve my score.

If your using an iPhone, pull blue back just past the gap so he rests on right corner of first stack on the left. Bingo!! 1 bird every time!

ps: split blue immediately upon release!

2 bird shot to get 124+ when I tried first time- aim for the left blocks, clearing the ones that usually don’t get broken with the one bird shot. Then, do the normal one bird shot hitting the blocks up top and below to clear the rest. I tried the one bird method but barely broke 120, 2 bird is much easier and could yield beyond top score I believe if done properly

I did manage to score over 120k this way, but got my highest couple of scores reversing the 2 shots.
1st shot to the top glass to start everything falling down. What worked for me then was to fire the 2nd bird almost immediately into the front bottom left. Wait til you see the cascade start , then aim the 2nd bird horizontally & split a bit more than halfway, just as it reaches the pile of black crates in the background (zoomed out). This undercuts the structure so the blocks & crates tend to fall straight down. I didn’t manage a screen shot but there were only 4 or 5 pieces of debris left.
It still took a whole lot of tries, but I scored over 121k a few times. Happy flinging :)

Wow kdog, you must have really cleaned up to get 124k with two birds!

Tried forever the one bird approach, but I too could not crack 121k, so I started trying with two birds, exactly as you described, Right away, I began getting scores 121 – 122k, then finally 123k. I tried reversing the shots as karen68 describes, but I must have lousy timing.
