Fun level. The only thing I did differently from the video was bounce BB off the front bumper, BB will tumble down and take out the whole right side.

Hi @mg516 – Could you clarify what you mean by “first bumper?” Is that the bumper of one of the cars? Where are you aiming and where are you dropping the egg to get the carcass to hit whichever bumper you are referring to. Sorry if I’m missing something obvious but I just can’t figure it out! Good luck, all!

@Maiasatara – sorry for the delay in responding. I had the boomerang bird hit the piece of stone above the front tire on the highest car. I used the bomb bird just like in the video. So sorry for the confusion I caused, but I see you got an excellent score. Regards.

Like the video, but it took me forever to have both cars destroyed, and thus enough points for 3*. Most of the time the top car wouldn’t fall.

Little detail to get high(er) scores: with the egg from Mathilda you have to clean the platform completely. Remaining debris reduces the speed of the rolling car.

On my best (only 254 as of now) I still had a couple of boxes, they slowed the car just enough that the it bounced off the top, rolled upright, and followed its buddy right into the chasm!

@mtj1517 Did you figure out a one-bird solution to get your high score? It seems to be possible if Mathilda destroys the left structure when she falls after bombing the platform, but that would leave the higher car untouched, which is worth quite a few points, and I don’t know if the lower bridge could get down fast enough for the lower car to get over it. How did you do it?

I’m sure you are right. Just got a 1 birder using the video strat, (fluke shot), but of course the top car stayed put, and my score was only 239K+.

THX @peejaydee27 ! I wondered about IF it could even happen ….. tho I suspected tha it might end up NOT helping the score :-( . I think you should get (many) ‘extra’ points for the ‘1-birder’ :-) . { Oh, I should add that what *I* think is of absolutely help, whatsoever (arg). This one is GREAT fun — despite my low 256,260 (at this post). If you have a moment & don’t mind a Q, HOW did you manage the 265,800? (Btw, CONGRATS!!! That is truly awesome.)

Thanks so much, @peejaydee27 !!! I so much appreciate you following thru with your notes to me! It’s not surprising that @fenikus came up with a remarkable strategy …. even tho, in all honesty, that seemed like I had NO chance of EVER making work; i.e., the whole, ‘Activate a micro second before impact…’ thing is REALLY difficult for me to do … AND, once (VERY rarely) accomplished, the (very) occasional watching of Matilda/WB and the truck starting to move – & then rolling to the left – is delightful & amazing …. & my posted score-pic (link immediately below) is the result of everything ‘unfolding’ all but perfectly. What GREAT fun! :-) .

@mjt1517 Given your status, I assumed that your score was earned. I was just wondering if there was some secret method or refinement that you’d used. I’ve had a couple of high scores that were several thousand ahead of everyone else (though that didn’t usually last too long), and they were just flukes. Congratulations on getting one. Anyone who plays as much as you obviously do deserves that kind of “luck” now and then. I apologize for having raised any doubts.

Send Mathilda directly to the upper wooden block without releasing the egg. The bridge should fall down, the concrete block must stay on it’s carton (or whatever this is). Send BB to the front of the car (to the stone, some extra points) which cleans up the right site. From now on you need luck. The backwards driving car will fall down, rotate and destroy the whole tower and hopefully land on its wheels to move to the middle hole.

Nice strat @ssi131 I’d been playing with a variation of it, but your bloated bird technique works better.

One extra tip: Try to hit the upper left part of that upper wood block. That makes Matilda bounce off the bridge and roll to the left, preventing her from breaking the carton under the stone block.

Good approach @ssi131, thanks for sharing. I don’t know why it consistently brings 3-5K more points than the video method with same amount leftover debris, but it does. It could be that the top truck ends up in the middle ravine instead of the left (though I had that happen with nothing to show for).

Another strategy is to fire Matilda flat, bomb the center of the bottom left structure. Matilda ricochets into the structure directly across from the sling. You want her to hit the plank above the marmoset, or the two thin stone blocks just above it. She’ll push the bridge over and occasionally, mode debris will fall on the bottom left structure. The more damage you do to the bottom structure without setting off the trigger, the better chance you have of the upper cart falling off the left side. Also, this debris is what’s needed for high scores.

I think for any score above 261k the cart must also destroy the upper bridge just as it finishes crossing it.

By fenikus (@fenikus)Score: 263,550

There is a 1-birder here that can bring 270K+ (managed 263,550 so far): Send WB toward 2 small vertical concrete planks above the 3rd marmoset. Activate a micro second before impact. WB ricochets through the top wooden block, lightly pushing the bridge, and continues to the top truck. WB and the truck will start rolling to the left and the rest of the story unfolds just like in video after second shot.

@fenikus Awesome catch. That strategy got me my first TT point increase in weeks. Have you tried this using the shot where you’re aiming so close to vertical that the power’s reduced? If you can get Matilda into the same spot, It also works. Not sure if it’s any easier or not, though.

Followed the strat of @ssi131 above, and although a bit tricky to get Matilda to drop the egg at the right time, finally got the one-birder as described. Thank you ssi131!!

Oops! It was actually the strat of @fenikus that finally helped me get the one-birder. I have been using Sisi131’s strat a lot and it gave great results too, but it was fenikus’ strat that gave me my personal best. So thanks fenikus for a great method.
