Exactly the same shot, but with luck the deflating piggies take out the top piggy for a not-too-difficult 1-birder.

61220 with 3 birds. First bird into the front pig and his stuff. Orange to cut the rope and drop into the structure below, hopefully without popping the pigs before the chemicals can do their thing. Bomb bird to the pipe section that goes into the box, detonate on impact.

Followed your strategy except didn’t need to use Bomb bird and picked up the extra 10k for unused bird. Nice strat!

There is a small time window (500ms or less) when the Level Cleared window appears, where a reset will prevent the score from being saved.

@Dmsral — Thanks! Got 67290 with your strat. Doesn’t seem to matter if you pop the left pig with the first shot. Second shot should be enough above orange flask that flask falls and breaks before you inflate OB. Bomb high on pipes going into wood block. Will release pipes with hopefully enough force that they break while falling.

Saw it for 6330 pts. Only little pig in tall tower popped. Did get 3*, but just barely. Not clear if you can get orange potion to activate two larger pigs, since they fell to left out of way of falling potion.

first red bird sent to toppest big, second orange bird sent to just below top tower and hit the pipe then bounce in the middle then orange+2 fused pig gave me top score. this is how i did.

thanks. use that to get 72240 currently (and several 70k scores, so reasonably repeatable). was activating the 2nd when right next to the two pigs to smash them into the pipe (not too early as then the potion has not done its work on them yet). hope they bounce back.

played that now for 15 more minutes, playing for the 2nd bird to bounce back just over the top pig, activating it a little bit later than before, say next to the lower pig. got several 70k+ scores with my current best of 75440 obtained when i got very good destruction on the pipe (top and middle completely destroyed). destruction of the bottom-left structure was good but of the bottom-right structure only fair, so more to be had.

I forgot to add, that the trick seems to be breaking all/part of the pipe on the right. I had the best luck by sending orange on the high side, so when it bounced to the left, it threw the 2 puffy pigs into the pipe.

Starting with the ABN video strategy, I managed 67700 using three birds. Went back and tried this strategy, and within ten flings improved to 75450 using two birds. Wow. Thanks.

I can’t quite tell what genkik and mockingbird did with their first shots. I knocked out the lower-left pig for 7-8k.

Is the EXACT Same structure in level 1-1.

Indeed. It is actually (at least) the third time that this structure is seen in some AB level (the other one I know of is the first Big Setup level, i.e., 9-1).

Finally got the feather. Went back to strat in video for first bird. Second to left side to take out bunsen burner and left pig. 3rd to top of pipes where they go into floating block; pipes fell right. Sardine can just above orange mushroom. Some largish sections of pipes remained on right.

Yeah, that has been the way I’ve been trying for two days, and I eventually got it – but everything depends on the tube’s behaviour, and it’s totally random.

It seems to me you need to destroy the burner, the valwe wheel and both the stone blocks, along with most of the rest to even think about getting near 100%.

Profile photo of DaBoidRank: Gold Flinger with 7780 points
By DaBoid (@daboid)

I had a really difficult time getting the feather.

1. Shoot Red to break the little rope holding the orange potion. Let that fall, blowing up two pigs.

2. Shoot Orange to the left of the structure, destroying the Bunsen burner, the ring stand and the beaker, plus the wooden steps supporting the left-most pig.

3. Shoot Bomb so to hit the top part of the pipes, just where the rope holding the orange potion used to be. Explode.

4. I tried over and over making the sardine can land on top of the orange mushroom, with no success. I then tried moving it back a little bit, shooting in a high arch to make the sardine can land in the center of the two indestructible platforms, right under the place where the small pig rests above two upright ice blocks.

It seems to be important to destroy as much of the left side of the structure as possible, then landing the sardine can on the platform center. Following Flint’s comments above I tried to concentrate on destroying the red valve wheel, but when I actually feathered, the red valve wheel was undestroyed.

@bonneypattycat: definitely another level worth revisiting ;-)
And thanks for creating the thread in the forum.

So things do break more easily and I improved my score by 14k using a strategy not previously possible.

So the first bird to the top pig and more often than not it will free the orange potion. Do not wait to fling the second bird, send it asap (I mean really as fast as possible) through the tower and activate it just when it comes right of the two pigs that will be inflated.

Here are the trajectories for both birds.

75k is now easy to achieve using this strategy, and I had a good numbers of 80k+ scores before landing the right one ;-)

So this is the result after my second bird and the highscore screenshot.

Hope it helps.

@asher I think I will have to take your word for it that the level is easier! I did pick up a few k with the strategy by @genkik, but wasn’t able to successfully implement your strategy in an hour or so trying. For now, I will add this level to the list as a “possible”

@bonneypattycat: I checked by comparing with my old PC version.

It was then impossible to get through the two vertical wood planks without loosing a lot of speed, while now it’s like butter and you very quickly end up above the two stacked pigs. This is what is making the strategy possible.

It was also impossible to break the top right wood plank, hence the strategies using the second bird bounce on the pipe. Now if you aim at the small square block in front of the pig you have a good chance to kill the pig, break the plank and cut the rope.

Maybe it’s just Android?

@bonneypattycat: I forgot to mention that the goal is to inflate the second bird before the two pigs inflate, sending them to the left, hopefully side by side on the platform.

Then they can perform their magic, while the bird is taking care of the right side and the pipes :->

That was fun – and it will be fun – cause I’ll be back later. Hysteric flinging from the hip for 30 min gave me 80k and 4:th spot for now. I can’t confirm that the level is easier but I can confirm that your strat is possible for an ordinary flinger. If only the ballons did not go through the pipe it would be easier. Thanks for all the effort you put into ABN and your wonderful strategies.
