What I did was bounce the blue bird off the tire into the TNT, destroying the two middle platforms (this is admittedly a very tricky shot). Then I sent the white bird over, dropping her egg so she was propelled into the remote. Scored 200,290.

I did it by accident, I admit, because it is a tricky shot!

Actually, after watching the walkthrough, I realize I didn’t notice the vehicle WAS a catapult, so I pushed it whole by breaking the glass with blue, and finished everything with Matilda. The big tnt didn’t explode, but, well, it worked!

Anyone looking for the gear, it’s in the branch where the catapult tosses the big black boulder. Found it by accident!!

A somewhat easier strategy that gives the same scores: Just push the catapult right, and then drop Matilda’s egg on the low TNT and let her carcass break the remaining structure on the top right.

When using video strategy, an extra 1K-2K can be obtained with a variation of the second shot: If the big log that fell down on the lower left branch is metal side up, send WB down sharp and bomb the log. Matilda will continue to to the TNT barrel like in video. You can do this even before the wrecking ball has stopped rolling, which will ensure that it drops off the plateau. Here is the video of the method: http://youtu.be/9o2UTNMD2aQ. As you can see, it can also salvage the non-exploding TNT situation.

Even with all this, I haven’t been able to break 201K. I am in awe of scores in the 205K neighborhood — I have no idea how to get there. I guess the extra points are down below where we can’t see what’s happening.

@fenikus I’ve been messing around with this one today.
High scores definitely made (although I expect someone will disprove theory!) by pushing the catapult off its stone, as described by @f91jsw above.
If only Matilda had done her job properly and hit the little TNT on the right hand side I would have hit 206k+

@hunnybunny, I suspect you’re right. The strategy you and @f91jsw described was my first choice until I came here and saw the video. I was frustrated because I could not break 200K with it so I switched to video strategy which is much more reliable. Now if only we could break the glass holding the catapult AND ignite the switch with one of the blues at the same time. That would be a top score for sure, but I’ve tried it many times and doesn’t seem possible. I hope someone proves me wrong.

@fenikus

My (@kelani like) experiment, and post
So here we go.

Top score strategy, although I have yet to do it

Fire the blues up to the glass protecting the catapult, this sends catapult down and towards the right.

Now you need something to destroy the packing cases, et al, on the branch underneath the sling shot. Hundreds of flings, you may get:

1. Blues once or twice falling back from the stony platform

2. timber logs occasionally bouncing off the lower stony platform

3. mostly (one in ten attempts) and most spectacularly, the trigger for the catapult is detonated as the catapult flies forward, and the catapult, well, catapults backwards, taking out those pesky and points making packing cases

Now send Matilda on a high arc (or a medium arc, both seem to work) the egg hits the lower, big TNT, and hopefully dear old Matilda continues on to take out the upper right side, slowly falls down, sets off the little TNT

206k could be yours (or hopefully mine)

@Hunnybunny yup, that’s a good description of possibilities, I’ve experienced them all. I would add that another promising scenario is when the catapult falls down one level and is activated. It creates proper mayhem on the middle level and even gets that small TNT on the right side ;-) In that situation, WB can be sent low to take care of packing cases with the egg, and ricochets to take out top right structure. So, I’ve seen it all but only managed just under 200K with that strategy. Will have to come back to this level when I’m less frustrated by it. FWIW, I think 207-208K is possible.

Ha-ha-ha, not a minute after my above post, got even 202K with the scenario I just described. I think I have to whine more often ;-)

@fenikus I’ve seen that one too, but never got anywhere with. Good flinging, my friend

Be careful what you wish for! I wished for 206k and after hundreds of attempts got just short of 208k
Woo hoo!
Exactly as I described above

Thanks @HunnyBunny. I used your strategy coupled with @Kelani‘s advice to put a blue on top of the catapult. If you get the blue to travel all the way to the end, he gets thrown into the glass of the upper right structure. This clears away everything making it easier to blow the TNT on the second shot. I also got a couple of one birders with this approach but never got lucky enough to get above 203k. But the potential exists for a higher scoring one birder.

@kathy a screenshot, not my best, I’m in a hurry this morning….
Matilda needs to be closer to the right hand side to take out the little TNT for a good score.
Hope it helps

On the first shot, where you send the blues up to break the ice restraining the catapult, try to get one of the blues to land on top. I don’t know why it works, but it seems to cause more right-side destruction.
