Angry Birds Seasons Wreck the Halls Level 1-8 Walkthrough

Wreck the Halls level 8 is a difficult level with a large amount of variation. Our strategy is to loft the White bird into the snow block holding the TNT at the top of the level. Do NOT trigger the ability of the White bird; rather, let him pass straight through the block. The resulting damage is a bit inconsistent, but if pigs still remain, use the Orange bird as necessary. The score in the video below is 206,830.

@surfcow when I opened this level to play for the challenge, the first thing I thought of was your comment about the ugly neckties, almost 9 months later that just stuck in my head. Thanks for the chuckle today!! :) I had approach this the same as @laurence, tricky shot, but it works well. I found that @iammighty tip worked the best for me! :) 1-bird that way as well.

@surfcow, too funny, & very true. Nice score.
I’m having trouble going any higher on this one, the strat of lobbing the bird seems to be the way to go, gives a 1-birder for me about half the time. It seems to be just a lucky fall of everything, & destruction of all the stone to score higher.
At least it’s a one shot deal, if it’s not going to work it’s a quick reset.

1st bird: horizontal white bird with bomb released so that the bird flies up into the snow block at the bottom of the first floating thing.

2nd bird: aimed at centre of floating thing on left side of TNT. Should cause the chain reaction that finishes it off.

Pretty sure a 1-birder is available, so good luck :)

You know, the real problem with a level like this is that it’s over so fast. It just seems somewhat unsatisfying to have the level figured out, and with such a tall score in less than five minutes.

The 3-stars should be around 190000.
I drop the w/b bomb between the two first block columns and make the bird hiting the second columns higher pig.
All concrete blocks fall down and clear the entire left part of the level.
The, the inflate bird is thrown through the snow block that hold the dynamite and I inflate it while it is between the upper concrete block of the right part.
All the rest fall and I saved 1 bird.

199250 2 birds

1. Send white bird between 1st set of pigs on the left and drop the egg right before them to richochet into the snow block.

2. Arc the orange bird over to take out the snow block under the tnt and inflate.

I’ve had the white bird also take out the entire bottom leaving the 2 pigs around the tnt and to the far right which can make it difficult to get the rest of the pigs with the orange bird.

184,000 was 1* — got 198,019 on third try for 3*

White bird brushes wreath between first 2 towers, takes all down,leaving last tower for balloon bird. The white bird didn’t launch egg bomb. Just bumbled around dislodging ice and brick blocks .

202450 with one bird. I’ve tried the lob a lot of you talked about (into the snow under the TNT) but I have better luck my way.

Medium lob to above the left wreath level with the blocks to the right, drop the egg so it hits the wreath and the white bird hit the blocks. The bird will shoot straight up. When it comes down it will hit either the TNT or the next “tie” and continue down taking any other “ties” with it.

I’ve only got 202K so far but I’ve only played it a couple of times. I love levels like this! ! ! ! !

By Pete

Same story here. Struggled to win at all and then one-birded it for 3 stars and 204440 points. I dropped my bomb just after the top of the first “pillar”. Kept bird as low as possible so recoil also caused damage and more blocks to fall. Fun level

By Anne

You have to shoot the white bird in between the first 2 blocks (With the green things inside). And drop the egg before you reach the 2 blocks. then a lot of snow and stones will fall. Then shoot the 2nd bird to to the right side of the screen and then you are finished.

By lynx

just completed 3 stars on android phone now…
1. use white bird and slide in between first two “hanging ties” and then drop bomb just before it hits any of the ties.
2. Shoot “baloon” bird high above the ties and then land inbetween ties while ensuring u scrape the snow hold the TNT box.
Well i hope this helps out cos thats what i did….. unfortunately, couldnt get a video of it.

Not sure if this is the right place to ask but does anyone know how the game decides when to stop counting the score? It doesn’t really apply to this level, but on other levels, there can be stuff still about to fall (or even in mid air on the way to the ground) when the game decides to call final score. Other times it waits for a while after the final pig dies, allowing points to keep racking up. It seems quite random!

Rank: Explosive with 2195 points
By loox (@loox)Score: 212,060

I’ve noticed it has a lot to do with 4 factors, the level won’t end when:
1. If you have mighty eagle, I think you get an extra 2 or three seconds per level (in case you decide to hit the eagle button)
2. Any bird still moving (rolling) no matter how slight.
3. Any movement by round objects (boulders, large or small round stones or wooden balls)… No matter how slight.
4. Anything that is bouncing… For example, a bird or piece of wood bouncing off of an inner tube (Rio)

So if you have falling debris that isn’t rolling, it may not be counted… Even though there is movement. It seems rolling and bouncing will prevent or delay a level from ending (as number 2 above could also be considered rolling)

Thanks for the explanation. It’s something I’ve wondered about, too.

Most frustrating is how quickly it takes score if your last bird was a black bomb. It barely waits a moment before taking score, often there are still things airborne.

On level 1-7 the far right structure wobbled and eventually toppled, and points started racking up while it was adding the 10,000 point bird bonuses, but it didn’t wait for it to complete! I probably missed out an a couple of thousand there…

secret to getting it is hitting the snow under the tnt and NOT hitting the present. Everytime I do that I get it with one bird, and then it’s just dumb luck on getting enough points.

Geez louise, I cannot get a one-bird game by lobbing for the snow block under the TNT. I can get it MAYBE 1 in 25 shots by dropping the bomb over the wreath and smacking the tip-top of the triangle stone and HOPING the bird falls onto one of the other right columns.

Finally improved upon my two-bird game…

Dangit, I thought I had the new high score since it’s higher than anyone who posted in the thread. Still excited, though, it makes up for my inability to raise my score at all yesterday.

What I did was arc over the first wreath, dropping the egg between the first and second columns. White bird then smacked into the triangle to the left of the snowball at the top of the second tower, throwing stuff to the right, busting the snow under the TNT, and everything just started falling. The far right column started getting stuck on the snow, and wasn’t falling, but something at the bottom finally took out the support and the things that had gotten stuck on the snow over there started falling down too. Very little debris left at the end.

Similar to video, key to the ‘no bomb’ technique is to hit the upper snow block quite close to the TNT box so as to drop it onto the stuff below where it’s explosion will take out the left side. The bird needs to continue on to hit the snow block to the right of the present, taking out the right side.
