Some observations for a good score:

First bird should hit the wooden square somewhat low, trigger immediately. Score after first bird should be at least 38k, preferably above 40k. Ideally, the pig in the wooden square should have shifted to the right and lean toward the diagonal wooden beam above the helmeted pig. Now there is a sweet spot just to the left of the helmeted pig, where the horizontal and vertical wooden beams meet. Try to hit this spot with a high arc fling so that the bird goes through the horizontal beam for maximum destruction and a 2-bird finish.

@foley200- I think reversing is helpful. I only had the far left pig left after first bird, which landed just to the left of the helmeted pig. Score was 101k. So close to a 1 birder). Thank you.

@wanda, awesome score..how did you manage just 1 pig left after the 1st shot? I’ve never even come close. I agree that reversing the shots gives me better (but still pathetic) scores, but that piggie in a box in the middle smirks at me endlessly, he doesn’t want to die no matter what my approach. At least I’m above average but may not be for long. Time to whine & pray for luck :)

@karen68, yep, just one stubborn pig was alive after first bird. I have come close to a one birder a few times, but I think there are more points with at least two birds for most of us:). Did you see gamerkyp’s comment? I’ve tried that way too, but it is so tricky. Maybe after more coffee!

Thanks for the observations. I think the shot must be between the wooden square and the pencil box.
Here a snapshot of a score with 46550 on first bird.

But after many and many try, never had again this score. This is not a toshop fake !

It’s a very difficult level to have big score (also level 1-14)

That is a great score for the first shot. The reason it’s so much higher than usual, though, is that you popped the pig in the square box. That is really tough to do with the first bird. Because that pig was popped, no one should be thinking it’s photoshopped. Nicely done.

Most importantly, we’re you able to take advantage of it with a good second shot?

After some more shooting I have to revise my strategy: It’s better to fing the first bird higher, just on the upper part of the textbook. With a good hit this will take out the entire left side, plus weaken the wooden beam over the helmet pig. The next shoot is not so critical, you can hit the helmet pig more or less straight on and the bird will quite often fall through the lower beam. I’ve had 130k+ repeatedly with this strat.

136,390 with this two-bird strat. 1st shot at the top half of the textbook, exploding upon contact. Second shot at the helmet pig, also exploding upon contact. Obliterated nearly the entire stack…

This is pretty much how I got my two birdie with a score of 130460. Then I shot a three birdie and scored 132640. This is one of those levels that seems like when you think you’ve gotten more debris then usual, you still have a low score then when you think you’ve taken out less debris, you end up with a higher score. lol…Anyone know what I mean by this? ;-)

Awesome score @mvnla2. This is one of those levels I enjoy coming back to just to try different shots. Notice the thin cement beam protruding diagonally from the left structure. Why is it there? Well, it might be to prevent an easy shot between the two structures. I was able to drop one just past the shield and into the small “well” that is near the top/middle of the dark gray rock foundation that both structures sit atop. Expansion pushed both structures to their respective cliffs, with pigs and debris tumbling down. Very, very close to one-birder with only one lucky pig remaining. Ended up with 128,500, about 10,000 less than mvnla’s current Top Score. Pretty sure someone will perfect this lob shot. Aloha.

It appears that I still have top score, and I did promise to try to figure out how I did it. However, we are leaving on vacation tomorrow, and packing etc. is first priority. @f91jsw — It sounds like your strat is close to what I was trying. I assume you mean the lower of the 2 helmeted pigs?

BTS 1-16, 140240 w/2 Birds..

1st shot – Highly arched o/b targeting the 1st structure’s diagonal stone beam (top tip) and ideally rotating off of it downwards, as close as possible to the ‘ stone boulders/ wood beams etc. The goal of the shot is to inflate the o/b at such a point that the 1st structure is obliterated and pushed to the left and over the side. Important to blow the structure to the left (easy!!)..

2nd shot – Highly arched “classic” o/b targeting the 1st pig of the 2nd structure and ideally busting through the 2 beams to the ABC book and inflating for max collateral (even easier)..

A couple of photos that may explain the 2 shots. For me it was hard to shoot, take a pic and inflate all at the same time in the 1st pic, but give it a try and maybe it may work for you (?). Good luck!.. thx

Rank: Well Traveled with 1855 points
By C_Wiz (@c_wiz)Score: 136,150

Even by your standards, @marc987, 1st shot is pretty crazy. I actually managed it once and improved from 135 to 136k but it’s probably one of the hardest shots in recent memory. The way you rebound off the diagonal beam while pushing it will impact how low you can go. If done correctly you can go as low as the lower level of the stone boulders and if you’re close enough you get the great destruction on left.

As an aside, I actually managed to one bird this level. Instead of pushing the tip of the diagonal beam, you simply “kiss” it and fall to the very bottom (between the two vertical stone beams) and explode there. I managed to do it 3 times, and only once I got both structures but with a disapointing 108k of destruction (so only 128k total). It seems plausible to me that a crazy one birder gets in the 145k with insane luck on destruction.

The times when I didn’t get full destruction, one pig was left on left structure with some bits there (and close to 100k destruction). A great 2nd bird could probably produce a great score too in those cases but I really messed up those two occasions. Hopefully won’t miss next time :p

I wish I could share some brilliant strategy with you all, but truth be told despite many hours of trying, I only played this level well that one time. Three birds. First bird was the same as the video. I had 38K after the first. With the second I was able to get the bird under the remaining debris from the left tower. 61K after the second. Third bird low arc to slip in to the left of the helmeted pig. Inflate before the bird reaches the bottom. Good luck.

145840, one bird strategy.

It took MANY, MANY careful aims for this, but was able to repeat it. Aim it to land between the gap of the two structures, make sure it the bird does not hit anything beforehand. Tapped the screen JUST BEFORE it lands on the pedestal.

Pretty much like irishhead but lucked out with one bird.

First bird needs to land on the ABC book on the bottom (middle) This is not an easy shot because the orange bird doesn’t seem to want to drop down. Aim to the left of the helmet pig and keep trying. When you do get OB down there, the whole right side is pretty much destroyed. I got scores of 70,000 to 77,000 with the first bird. Second bird at the close ABC book or whatever works for you to take out the left side.

Finally, after gaziljon tries I got my one birdie. I knew it was out there :)

I shot the orange bird into the left side of the right tower. Aim is the horizontal wooden plank of the right tower. this way the orange bird doesn’t fall into the right tower, but bounces into the gap of the two structures. It blew up by it self and pushed the left and right of the ledges. I got 138330! But it took ages to get it to work!

I used the strat @f91jsw had for the first bird that took out the left structure. My second shot was supposed to be as @f91jsw described but I had the wrong release angle. The orange bird came down about a third of the way up the diagonal board and drove right through that board, the mustached pig and the bottom board to land where the yellow alphabet book is. When Orange expanded, it had such a force that it destroyed everything above it and to it’s right. The destruction was impressive.
