Angry Birds Seasons Back to School Level 1-17 Walkthrough

Our strategy for Angry Birds Seasons Back to School level 1-17 is to lob the pink bird at a very high arch so she comes down to the right of the top left spire. Trigger her bubbles before she hits so as to lift up as many stones as possible. As they fall they should detonate the TNT and take out the pigs on the left hand side. Now mop up the right hand side with the next pink bird. The score in the video is 79,700.

If you have a different strategy feel free to leave a comment below; however, don't just post your score via the comments, as that's what the leaderboards are for.

I reversed the shots described in the text walkthrough.
First PB to the right, taking out 4 pigs.
Second PB to the top of the tower and it happened to pick up the TNT, which blew up on the way up.

I have played this level a gazillion times and here’s what I’ve determined…
Send first Pink Bird in a high arch to bounce off the far right empty wooden triangle and then she’ll land just under the last cement triangle and slanted cement plank and then tap screen which will completely take out the whole right side. Here’s a screenshot:

http://angrybir.de/S90tgX

Now the second shot will make or break your score. It’s a very hard shot, IMO…You want to send her in another high arch, only slightly lessened but you need to clear to front structure’s wood top so that she lands near the first cement triangle. You want to tap her as she’s approaching so that she takes with her the thin wooden plank and hopfully a notebook or two for extra points. The wood plank supports the first structure and if she “yanks” it out, the structure will fall forward (right) and topple and ignite tnt. You also want to try and get atleast one of the notebooks to go with her. If you can suck them both up, even better ;-) I found you really need to get to atleast one of the notebooks for higher scores.

@lesleyg: I have zero problems with the first shot you described, but the second never has worked for me. I’ve yet to pull the plank, but I’ve destroyed it many times and the left tower acts as if it’s going to lean to the right and collapse but always stops. I finally broke 80k and that was my goal. Now I can say goodbye to this level. :)

By the way, nice score and good strat even if I couldn’t get it to work just right.

Hey @kcin 76 (Nicholas)…Thank you and here’s a screenshot of the second shot:

I realize it doesn’t really do all that much for you but hope it helps some. In this screenshot I didn’t get any of the notebooks so the scores only 85500 but it’s the same trajectory I used for my score. Gl going forward ;-)

Thanks @lesleyg I, too, was unable to replicate that second shot, but while I was trying for it, I overshot, bounced back into the notebooks and activated Ms Pinky when she was about at the bottom of the top notebook (and touching the side). She grabbed the whole stack and picked up the entire right side of the structure, which accomplished just what you said…Thanks again

This is one of those levels where I’m just goofing, since I’ve got time to kill, being against a loading dock. That means I got a very lucky 1 bird shot, getting even the TNT to detonate, taking out the left side, and popping all the pigs. Now, do I pay even scant attention to what I’m doing? Why, of course not fellow reader!

Thus, ignorantly emboldened, I try to get the skill shot @moonsabre is talking about. Does it help me, or improve my score, even just a smidgen? Are you kidding? Do I really need to supply the answer? No, because this is contrary night, wherein, if I try for the killer shot, my score actually drops with each utterly useless repitition.

You’d think I’d have learned by now, to avoid the vainglorious, but nnnnoooooo………..!

BTS 1-17, 90420 w/2 Birds..

1st shot – Highly arched p/b to the far side gap and “bubbled-up” to ideally destroy the entire right side making sure that the grey foundation’s slanted back slope is free of any debris..

http://i45.tinypic.com/2njfwwp.png/IMG

2nd shot – Highly arched p/b again with almost the exact same trajectory less 2 or 3 pixels to ideally bounce off the grey foundation’s slanted back slop into the “ABC” books or above them with only one goal, “bubble-up” and twist the horizontal wood beam, dislodging the structure and allowing the TNT to blow everything to smithereens! GO SHOOTERS!!..

98550 w/1. Fun one for you to try out @marc987. I know how much you like those skill shots. The idea is to hit the corner of the rightmost area, bounce back to the \ right underneath the stone triangle and tap BEFORE it hits so that it lifts all of the stones. They should drop mostly directly down causing the explosion. Here’s the general idea of the shot below.

I hit 98K a second time but sadly lower:

The elegance of the strategy and the perfection of the shot leaves me speechless @moonsabre ! I actually managed to one bird it once using your rebound shot but was really unlucky with the destruction, hitting a 83k.

Couple of tips that might help others, as @moonsabre said, you really need the rebound to be truly at the top of the diagonal beam, it seems to be the key to be able to lift the horizontal stone that sits on top of the horizontal wood (that kinda supports the right part of the left structure). If you look at the first screenshot from moonsabre the horizontal stone I’m talking about is the one in the blue baloon. Lifting this one is key it seems or you won’t get the TNT to explode.

Again, thanks for sharing this mesmerizing shot !

Not a high score, but just something interesting. While trying to improve my score, I played this level, what seems like, several hundred times. Not sure if it’s my phone telling me to give it a rest or just a funny little glitch, but one of the weirdest things happened. After flinging the first bird, one of the triangular blocks just floated in mid air. If you watch the short vid, you can see it. (I apologize in advance for the less than fugi like quality of the vid)
I have played (way too) many hours of all versions, but not sure I have seen anything like this.

I tried the shot @moonsabre described, but I just give up. I got a 2 birdie with the same shot he descibes, only the first bird didn’t lift everything up. I send the second bird in the same way and boom! all was blown up and I got 90700, which is fine for now, maybe I will return to try the skillshot of the one birdie :)

Here is my video of a 2 birdie version of @moonsabre ‘s one birdie version

i am not sure i saw this mentioned yet, but if it has, forgive me please. If you shoot the (first/any) pink bird very high…. it can come down inbetween the wooden triangle peaks of the left sturucture and settle onto the stone slat just before it auto-activates. More times then not it will grab the TNT and then it’s a matter of luck i think where the TNT explodes as i have seen lots of variation. Anyhow, it led to my personal best, and still very humble score of 80,460…. dang, just checked , still 3k below avg. Well…. it’s still an interesting shot as the outcome can vary.

And by chance (or not) the aiming is very easy, at least on android phone…. your flight path should go directly thru the pinpoint of light coming out of the clouds….

good luck!!

@tmax, I recommend you watch e-star’s video and just keep at it, it’ll pay off in the end. I’ve been trying every possible variation including the one you mention, and none of them will net you a higher score. Who knows, you may get lucky and get moonsabre’s fluke.

My pigs have cemented the blocks together, put lead around the TNT, and have a cunning plan to make any block I manage to dislodge fly out away from the structure rather than in towards that explosive. How I got 91k last time I played I have no idea!

In the place same as a video as for the first bird.
However, the TNT did not erupt.
The second bird is the same orbit, too.
TNT erupted, and stone block conquered the right building.

@sadbird never call one of @Moonsabre shots a fluke. He is probably the greatest Seasons player ever. If he publishes a walkthrough you know its good, but like most of his shots, precision is needed.
He only plays seasons one and two, so doesn’t register on the total score leader board, so you may have missed him. Look at the individual episodes to see what I mean

@hunnybunny, if my comment to someone else about the moonsabre fluke upset you a little, what can I say, this is the way I look at all these games, any time that ultra high scores are reached by any player, it involves several factors:

1) Tons of time to spare so they can dedicate themselves entirely to each particular level.

2) Hundreds if not thousands of attempts to achieve them, therefore precision skill isn’t so much of an issue, luck is.

3) The only skill I see as necessary for these games is persistence, perseverance and a quick and nimble finger or mouse also helps.

In my honest opinion, these games behave very much like a slot machine at a casino, the programming decides when it’s your turn to win, otherwise it wouldn’t be necessary to keep repeating the same shot over and over again to keep getting different outcomes each time.

Mind you, I enjoy playing these games as much as the next person and they help keep me on my toes all the time, there’s no rest and relaxation here, only aspirins, antacids and lots of yelling and cursing. Happy Flingin’!
