94740 – two birds. -first bird cleared almost everything to the left of the chain and the stack to the right of the chain. Second bird left one damaged box remaining

Nice score. Can you provide more description? Same tactic as video or a different method?

Actually this did happen to me once. Red bird slightly higher than video cleared whole left side. Second bird clean up on the right… This could yield scores in the 90 thousands… But I have an easier strat… See below…

Different strat… Two bird solution:

Bird 1: same as video
Bird 2: yellow bird… Aim high and accelerate quickly… Your goal: get as much of the chain to fall as possible by slicing through it at the top.

The chain has weight, get enough of it to fall and it topples both the left and the right sides.

I was extremely confused as to why there would be a cage dangling from a chain that wasn’t swinging… Couldnt figure out how to use this to my advantage.., then I realized, don’t aim for the cage, aim for the chain… Sure enough, depending on where you slice it, it falls differently… You want it to fall so part of it hits the rightmost pig’s structure with enough force to topple it, then the weigh of it will push the left structure down as well.

I took out a HUGE chunk of chain and it just folds up and sits on top of the tower. Then after next bird, chain fell on ice blocks and didn’t break any, just cracked so idk about the chain.

Thanks loox. No luck yet but def see potential. Cant seem to get bird on right with the chain falling. Usually falls on the wood with no impact. Am interested in trying 90k method.

Thanks @loox. This strat worked just as advertised after only 30-40 tries. I don’t think you can actually control where the chain falls (or how) but hit as high up as possible to allow as many folds as possible. I had several near misses on earlier tries. When the chain dropped the right bird went first…

Finally got this to work, thanks @loox. Most of the time the chain falls into a nice neatly folded pile. Had a few close calls until it eventually tipped both sides over for 94k. Have only got it to work once though.

Ditto here — took a very high number of attempts to get this to finally work. It is not crucial to hit the very top link in the chain; in fact, hitting it never gave me even a close call. All my near successes were by hitting the chain with YB going downwards, like this: http://angrybir.de/1lYmrxB. 100K is theoretically possible but I am done for the day!

Not sure if the other platforms can see it, but on PC, you can see where the chain ends, and there’s quite a lot of space above it. Aming about 70-75 degrees w/instant speed boost is the general area.

I heard a strategy from someone else. 1st bird lower down on the left. 2nd bird as high up on the chain and hope for the best. The chain is very very long ;) This is too hard probably but I got 90k.

1. Hit low on empty ice block, rids the whole left side.
2. Launch straight to hit the supporting cage.
3. In a 75 degree angle, fling the red bird so happens it hits hanging cage and far right cage, hopefully knocking down the support with the hanged pineapple..

URGH!!! cant get pineapple so no extra points than what I already have..I did repeat my score several times the way I already described but noticed 1st bird needs to yield atleast 28K and second needs to end up 50K plus for third shot to get you in the above average 85+ range…

Rank: Gold Flinger with 8360 points

You could try aiming a little higher, so it could hit both caged birds and the side of the 2 glass blocks, outbalancing it and letting it fall.

Well my best score I just got pretty much like video, I have tried and tried loox chain method but it has yet to fall right…I did notice there is a highlighted part on the chain that is lighter than the rest and have managed to slice it here a few times and it ALMOST causes chain to fall and push right and then left, so far have only gotten it to cause left tumbleā€¦I do think its posssible but havent mastered it yet!

Somehow just posted over 100k. Looks too high according to other scores (including my own previous) but I have a screenshot. Was a two birder. First took out the bottom as per other methods but some debris also took out the supporting bird cage. Yb then hit chain and pretty much nailed everything else… Proper luck.

Hi nzandy,

By any chance, do you think that your remaining birds were accidentally double-counted?

Hey, not really sure what you mean! Double counted?! I was watching it the whole time and it looked prettty legit. Was on about 62000 after first and then 75000 before the extra 30000 kicked in. Let me know if you want the screenshot mate.

Yeah, just saw that! Sorry. As I said above, I followed most of the methods above for the first bird and hit the lower block of ice. This acted as usual but as the second section of the tower fell, it wobbled back into the section above and this in turn collapsed. On the way down, one of the long horizontal wooden blocks smashed the lower blue birdcage. This was the fluke part that I have not even come close to repeating. I then was on around 62000. I then accelerated the yb immediately and cut the chain out of the screen. This then fell down and the chain finished everything else off and sent the pineapple platform off to the right.

There’s this glitch in ABRio, that extra birds left out are counted twice in points. For instance: you have 2 unused birds in a certain level, if the glitch activates, you get 40k instead of the usual 20k.

I think i experienced the similar glitch like nzandy, but in other level, in both Rio and Original. The birds didn’t count twice, but had unusual “complete destruction”. It just suddenly everything fall off, blow away, exploded by itself.

If people think its a glitch (which, let’s be honest it probably is) I will remove it from the leader board and put my old score back up. I am pretty sure it didn’t count the birds twice as I was (as we all do when trying master a level) keeping track of my score.

If slim asked you to be kind enough to post your previous score, then thank you @nzandy for being a sport.
Otherwise, you shouldn’t be apologetic!

AB does some weird things sometimes. I’ve had a split blue bird go through two planks of wood without breaking them in Jungle Escape. You should have seen my face lol. Not a useful incident :D

I still don’t think you need to remove from leader board. Sometimes the game need lucks to achieve such high score. I consider the glitch as a “luck”. Legit?
Let’s say ABO level 3-5. After updates, they have added a tiny ice preventing the pig from rolling. So i consider whoever get higher score before update is “lucky”. Is it a fair play?

Things that change over time is different — think of the Santa Hat glitch. Those scores remain because the same glitch was available to EVERYONE who played at that time.

On the other hand, a glitch that double-counts remaining birds is not fair because that’s a system error, versus a design error that’s available to everyone.

I changed the sequence shown in the video because it would never go above 83k.
1) Same as video.
2) Shoot Yellow Bird at the lower cage with the 2 birds in it.
3) Shoot Little Red at high arc over lamp without touching the chain and take out the hanging cage and the one next to it as well as the ice blocks, ice platform and pineapple which all tumble to the right.

There is a fun trick on this one for a 1 birder. Shoot very high to break the chain as high as possible (it is a very very long chain). With a little luck this can topple everything

I don’t think “as high as possible” suggested by several people is accurate. When I do that my yellow bird is going over the top of the chain. It doesn’t fall back down to the left suggesting it fell short of reaching the chain or simply bounced off it instead of cutting it. The chain does not get cut and yellow disappears, I can only assume having flown over the chain and continuing way off screen to the right. There’s obviously a sweet spot that provides enough chain to fold in a way that topples both sides. (Neither going over the chain nor cutting it too short.) I have yet to find said spot but will keep trying, inspired by others’ success! Thanks for the strategy!

Confirmed one can, in fact, fly over the top of the chain holding the red birds. I saw yellow fly off to the right just before it went off screen!
