With one bird, shoot it on the first little tower and this one might kill all the others with an domino effect. Worked 2/3 times, but was also alot luck, most blocks were broken.

Good luck :)

This is definitely the way to go. Hit the two vertical wood planks of the first tower square otherwise you knock the top off or part will fall back and the domino effect won’t happen. Even if you don’t get the domino effect on the first bird, quick launch the second, I was able to get mid-80k’s regularly and even a 90k that way.

I didn’t have the idea for this level, but would like to share what worked for me. This level requires you to be tenacious, more than lucky. Hit the hollow block in the middle to slightly higher, sit back, and let the domino effect do the rest. I have been able to repeat this score numerous times. This is a one birder.

Thanks Kathy, AA and Kart, for the fun game of one upping each other, that resulted in me achieving this score!

I dont know. I think there is still some luck involved with how everything falls. Ive hit the the first block what seems like every possible place to hit it & gotten a wide spread of scores usually in the 90′s. My highest scores (only beat 100 2x so far) seem to be when I aim a bit lower on the block. For aiming, I use the tip of the gray rectangle in the background above waiting RB#2. Set the bottom of the sling seat to line up with the top of that rectangle. Zoom is at default.

@amslimfordy it was on May 22, 2012. Ripsy had the BP team pick our favorite level, this was my pick because it was the day I really got to know @lesleyg (AA) and @kartflyer . You can see the above comments on May 22 where I mention the BP. Plus all of my comment on Feb. 9, 2012 have been deleted. As you can see @Wanda made reference to them, but nothing is there. :/

@amslimfordy – sunshine is correct about a lot of missing comments. I was just wondering why they got deleted??? As sunshine mentioned above…kart and I were having a friendly competetion of trying to “one-up” each other on Feb. 9th. Sunshine stepped in and I remember her asking if she “could join in the fun or was this a private competetion.” I replied back to her, ” yes, please join in the fun, the more the merrier.”
Then I passed up kartflyer’s score and then he replied, “Not anymore” as he beat me again. Then sunshine posted her 103K+ score and waited for us to notice… She posted, “I think I’m going to have a heart attack, I think I’ll sit down and have a refreshing glass of pineapple juice.” Then I think we praised her for her score and she replied something back about, ” That’s the way the cookie crumbles” or something like that…we had a fun competetion and thread going that was pretty funny to read which is why later on, on the 18th after sunshine posted how she got it, wanda said she had enjoyed reading about the competetion above and that it was hilariuos. She wasn’t referring to sunshine’s srat as being hilarious. Also kathy had been in it too which is why her May 22nd post said she enjoyed reminiscing on the previously mentioned posts…she even mentions GFish joining in, the night before I think, but he/she has no comments left here either? On may 22nd, as posted above I wrote: “We’re Back”!!! I brought one of @kathy ‘s drink specials with me with extra pineapple…maybe it will help with the “L” factor needed ;-)” I wrote that because of sunshine’s original “pineapple juice comment” It’s not a big deal I am just curious as to why they were deleted because like sunshine said, she picked it for her choice of LOTD for May 22nd because it brought back the happy memories of us first getting to know each other better and it’s kinda sad that there missing now ;-/ I was just wondering if you knew why they may have been deleted?

@lesleyg I was pretty surprised when I looked up at the score. It’s strange how things work. My previous high was 100K and I have still not had any scores between 100k and 105k. As far as the shot, I just hit the corner, not the wood. I’m not sure where the bird went after that, but it looks like @rdnzlrips82 has that figured out below. Also, it takes a fair amount of tries to get everything to fall with this shot, not like some places where everything will topple over almost every time. Hope that helps.

If I may be allowed to weigh in here. The magic shot hits the top left of the stone square. The bird gets stopped, repeat, gets stopped by vertical wood block and pushes through to help tip the rest over. If you believe it, I have a PAT.

Pull bird straight back and then down until you see a pixel of daylight between the straps. Then pull down, ever so gently two more clicks. Release bird. Watch everything fall slowly.

I haven’t yet got much above 102k, but I have had at least five scores very near to 102k, with hits all over the block, from the tippy top, to the bottom of the bottom, all with similar results. Maybe the sweet spot for 105k is the tippy top, but I lean to thinking it can happen anywhere on the block just so long as the tower pivots nicely for a good crash.

The great thing about this game is:
Sometimes the “L-Factor” cannot be controlled.
Sometimes the “L-Factor can be forced.

In my case, I think this one could be forced a little more. But I also believe that this game can be completely random and can change in the blink of an eye.
I also believe in what I call “Paying Your Dues.” Meaning, sometimes you just have to play the same level over and over and over and over until eventually, it throws you a bone and let’s you have a good score.
