@amslimfordy – could you increase score limit?
I have 269K+ which is just too high.
I can provide screenshot showing my achievement/obtainment if needed ;-)
One birder – blue into center, which erupted pink potion and debris took out orange potion and blue potion for a dramatic one bird clear.
Thanks.

The trick to getting a high score is getting the potion to hit one of the pigs mid-flight in the middle. That’s how I got my 1-birder.

278090 by throwing to the middle. key is that the potion in the right structure falls down into the bottom structure causing an extra 3-fold replication of the pigs there (27 instead of 9 as usual). this needs a lucky chain reaction (top structure falling down, opening up bottom structure and making right structure fall to the left). more debris points possible.

@vuelva do you have any more detail on how you threw the blue bird in the middle? did on of the birds hit the right side, or did you just throw it at the spinning thing? did you wait before you threw the bird? Any additional details appreciated. Thank you!

it’s not much of a strategy, but what i was doing was splitting the 1st bird immediately so that:
- the bottom one activates the blue potion in the left structure, taking that structure out;
- the middle one activates the spinner, which should take out the rest…;
- the top one is spare (i let it just bump into the top structure).
(this was only the easiest way for me to achieve the intended effect of activating both the blue potion and the spinner; i can imagine many other ways to achieve the same)
here’s a screenshot showing the trajectory and the 278k final score:

http://angrybir.de/1jL6aLy

for some time i had experimented with waiting before throwing, to bounce the blue bird off the spinner into the right structure, but when the above happened i had given up on that and was in fast repeat mode (throw,reset). the level seems 99% luck, 1% skill (it’s hard to miss the spinner or not activate the blue potion). i spent something like half an hour on this level before i got lucky, i.e. the potion on the right fell to the left without breaking, and at the same time the bottom structure had opened up and the pigs were replicating.

Thank you for getting back to me! I’ve been trying for two days to get a good score. I’m up to 214k, but I have tried tons of different strategies. It does seem like total luck. Thanks again :)

A rather difficult level. Was stuck at 180K and tried different strategies. Finally got 255K with 2 birds (after a zillion times). Blue, with a slight angle just over the towers on the left, into the spinner. At last the potion did what it has to do! Only 2 pigs on the left remained; easy to finish them off with Orange Bird.

Has anybody ever seen this level self-destruct? I was traveling the past few weeks and trying to improve my score on this one. Started the level while the flight attendant handed me my drink, when I looked down, half was gone, all birds still intact. Since top blue did not fall down to the bottom, nothing to get a high score with, just not sure how/why it activated without interaction.

@Pointdexter5 — You’re the first to report it. I added it to my list of levels to investigate, but I am way behind. Do you remember how many points you got?
Anyone with more info on this should report it in the forum on self-destructing levels:

I actually made a screen print, which shows only the two left pigs left and the blue bottle, score of 108950. It had only happened one time in many many tries, as I was trying to get over a 210k hump. I can upload the screen print if there is interest. I don’t know if a block fell and activated the yellow bottle(s), or of they just started for no reason. You can generally see it spinning a little bit after the start of the level, but not been able to recreate this yet.

By crash (@tmax)Score: 264,870

my score (264k), although totally by accident came about by the way @vuelva described…. it was a 2-birder though.

1st bird: i don’t even split the bird i just aim for the left structure and gently push it to release the blue potions and get the piggie points

2nd bird: Not even sure what i was trying to do, but the potion on the right bounced/rolled to the bottom portion where the other 2 are and so i ended up with 18 (i think) or so extra pigs popping for basically 90000 points that usually aren’T THERE

i have the final screen score picture, but i won’t upload it in a hurry as i am only in 26th place at the moment

The screenshot showing how i went from 170K to 282K appears to be in JPEG format,however,neither Imageready nor PS could accept it.(I’d NEVER PS the photo if anyone bothers)
Judging from the fact the Benson burner had dropped to the platform below,I speculate the crucial blue potion must have fallen alongside a pig from its platform to create the extra 18+3 pigs.

This level was trivial to 3 star. I was so proud of myself, I was going to post my 189,620 score; then I read about the much higher ones. For some reason this brought out my competitive instinct – big mistake! Several hours and at least 150 tries later, I had accumulated over a dozen 190K scores and probably half a dozen over 200K. I think I’ve given myself a carpal tunnel injury, and my best was only 252,660. I wish I’d never read the comments!

I could make a fairly long list of what has been proven not to work for this level. Maybe I will when it no longer hurts to type.

As I said in last comment, I’ve abandoned the idea of trying to high score this level, but I noticed the huge range of possible scores for clearing all the pigs. I came up with another objective, trying to get the lowest score. My best (worst) was 81,200.

Here’s a few hints for anyone who wants to try for less points:

1) It will have to be a one star score.

2) It’s hard to get below 100,000.

3) You’ll probably have to waste one or more birds.

4) Any bonus points will doom the effort. What this means is the yellow bird will have to be your last shot, and it will have to destroy at least one pig.

5) Try to break as few bottles as possible.

How low can you go? Playing for lowest score assumes that scores are reported honestly. There’s no way to prove them after the fact.

How about the lowest scoring 1-birder. I’m currently at 132210.

By Tom

I managed to get get a low of 70700. Seems to take a fair bit of luck, not unlike getting a high score!
1) Blue bird into the spinner – you can regularly explode the piggie in the top cage without setting off the pink potion
2) Orange bird into the left structure – you can often get all three pigs to blow without setting off the blue potion. However, here is where you need some luck. You also need some debris to set off the second of the spinner rockets, and have it explode somewhere useful. Most useful is right at the bottom killing the bottom piggie without setting off either of the two tripling potions.
3) You then have two bird left to take out the wooden bit of the spinner and the right piggies. The right piggies are hard to get without setting off at least one potion, so there’s probably scope for slightly lower scores.

Practically, I reckon low 60k might be possible (min 40k for the piggies alone) but I find it hard to see how you could get much below that with the amount of damage you need to cause.

Consistent 190+ scores by splitting blue bird early – hit first structure with lowest, multiplying the pigs. Activating one spinner to break pink potion on top, which immobilized the second spinner between lower and furthest structure. Right blue bottle fell into bottom section, compounding the multiplication of pigs, while orange potion inflated 2 pigs on right. Fun level.

@amslimfordy, please raise the threshold — I just scored 317k. I must have played this level a thousand times — following video strategy — before I was able to get multiple blue potions to combine. On the 1st bird, the right structure was destroyed allowing the blue potion to fall left and lodge in the upper right corner of the pipe enclosing the pig on the bottom. The second bird inflated in the left structure setting off a chain of destruction:
1. the blue potion on the left blew into the bottom pig while it was multiplying from the effects of the two potions in the pipe enclosure,
2. the other blue potion affected that part of the ‘cloud’ of pigs that floated to the right, and
3. pink potion broke completing destruction.
Bottom line – two bird success with a score of 317,960. I’ve posted a screenshot to my album. I only wish that I had been quick enough to capture a screenshot of all of the pigs but I was too mesmerized by the results and the action was over before I could react. There are still more points to be had but it would take more luck than I can muster. Jim

Slim, thanks for the kudos. I think that Short Fuse is simultaneously the most fun and the most frustrating of all of the AB episodes. It is rewarding when the potions combine n the right order and it is maddening when they don’t. Level 26-10 is my nemesis. I know that it can be beaten — many good players already have — but I cannot seem to hit the sweet spot.

Just had a bizarre sequence that resulted in my highest score so far…208460. On my second shot, I managed to activate the potions in the bottom vault, which was now packed with piggies. On my third shot I lofted Matilda in just below the top pig, which was untouched so far. I dropped the egg, which destroyed the central hub and the rebound destroyed the bottom pipe on the top vault. The pink potion then dropped onto the packed piggies in the bottom vault, resulting in multiple giant pink piggies. I don’t think I’ll be able to repeat that one!

If you want some random and entertaining fireworks. Try tossing bird #2 into the mix immediately and watch the show. You probably won’t get a high score out of it but I came close once!
