Angry Birds Star Wars Cloud City Level 4-20 Walkthrough

Our strategy for Angry Birds Star Wars Cloud City level 4-20 is to send Han straight ahead, blasting the first switch to open the first barrier. Unfortunately, the second barrier is closed by the same switch, so try to get through before it closes. Use Leia to grab the chain boulders, and then Obi-Wan to push blocks into Vader. The score in the video below is 110,010.

PC Bug Alert: There seems to be an issue with PC logging scores on this level, and some of the Boba Fett Missions. For more information, see the v1.2.0 release post.

The video method works well but actually there is no need to actually hit the switch to open the barriers. Just aim Han towards the lower part of the stone blocks, the ones which are directly above the horizontal wooden blocks. The power of the lasers and the Han hitting the stone barrier causes it to break without hitting the switch. The rest can be done more easily now with a clear path.

Get through the barrier before it closes? How do I do that? Same way as @iammighty describes. Was so pleased with myself for figuring this out I’m not really surprised someone’s beaten me to posting it :)

With your method concerning Han, you can then aim Leia to destroy the switch but, just before she touch it, aim her attractive lasers to the up-part of the third barrier(right barrier): this could destroy the third barrier, break the chain with boulders and kill all pigs in the middle. Then, send Obi toward the middle of the second barrier(center barrier) and eventually use him to project its pieces on the remaining pigs. I got 132k.

@antoine I like this method. Have not been able to finish the level with Obi-Wan yet, but on my best effort so far I had a lot of destruction and all pigs and Vader gone except the bottom pig under Vader. Took him out with Luke for a score of 120,540.

I’d sure like to see a screenshot of 132k. Near total destruction with 3 birds yields 115-120k. Where does the extra 12k come from? And why is it among all these great players no-one can come close?

That’s cool. So the way to the higher scores is having obi wan force the barrier.

Wow! 3rd try was 130k! Thanks.. You’re right. It is the destruction of all three barriers that makes a difference.

I don’t understand, I keep aiming for the wooden area on top of doors and they just bounce off.

Here’s a detailed description on @antoine‘s strategy. Top score for now with 137k.

First bird just over first switch. Blast the top wooden piece of the top door. Target score after 1 bird: at least 7500.

Second bird at first switch. Tractor beam at top of the rightmost door. Important that you catch the small top metal piece. Target score after 2 birds: at least 70k, ideally 73-74k.

Third bird aimed so that you approach the closed doors just in the centre. A little before impact, push right and slightly up. One of the pieces should fly with high speed just between the two floating barriers and hit Vader. The rest of the door should shatter completely.

I think that the high scorer should always give their strategy. It’s only polite to share, right? If only I had something new to add… @antoine and @f91jsw provided the method, the force was with me, and the destruction was awesome to view. Thank-you both!

Agreed. I used the same method as you. I was getting frustrated because I couldn’t improve on my previous 132k high. Then BAM there it is! Once I got the strat down fully zoomed out, I zoomed in some to make those more precise aiming points work. I don’t use a stylus, so fully zoomed out was too small for me to get the accuracy I needed. Partially zoomed in gave me the targets I needed even if moving & it worked for me. :-)

In the end I pass it by chance with 4B at 126K. Many times one of the pigs survive. Biggest problem 4 me is an arc for 3rd shoot (antoine screens are not avaliable). Any tips?

Oh my, I knew I needed a lot of help when my 3* was over 9k from average & a whopping 30k from the TopScore. I must be getting too old to play these levels because I was having an incredibly difficult time with b@z‘s description & his/her pic links no longer worked. Fortunately, @f91jsw had taken the time to help describe what needed to be done to help so many of us. Unfortunately I could not narrow down the oh-so-important 3rd shot. I needed a video & tried @yuriyigolkin‘s YouTube & at least managed 124950. In addition to subscribing to yuriyigolkin’s videos, I also subscribe to @crazy-rider videos & it was seeing his 3rd shot that allowed me to improve to 134300 on Android phone. I should be happy now as the rank is #56, but you know how it goes …. just one more try before moving on

Argh!! I’ve been at this level for days and for the life of me cannot break 137k. Thank you for your detailed description of @antione’s strat – including scores/bird. Very helpful, and even though I’m disappointed that I’m unable to score higher, it *did* improve my score greatly.

You don’t even need the lasers, I tried firing the lasers at the top wooden blocks on the first barrier and the whole barrier disappeared into the whole giving me a score of 12,380. Then fire Leia at the switch as described by b@z (except I aim her lasers at the top stone block)then Obi as described by everyone else. I got 142K but there is a glitch with the PC version which Rovio know about and are working on where after the score comes up the game crashes so it doesn’t register. Needless to say someone will register a very good score before I am able to :(

Aim Hans slightly above where the first barrier will open. Use Han’s laser to open the first barrier just as he gets to it (almost firing straight down). He will make it through the second barrier as it closes, hitting the second switch, which opens it back up. This shot is extremely repeatable. Fling the second bird a little higher and attract the top panel of the third barrier as she hits the steam. It is best that the steam ends up clear of debris and the chained pigs on the ceiling remain. Aim Obi-Wan higher still so that he hits the chained pigs and direct the debris high toward Darth Vader. If you can knock him over, everything falls killing the remaining pigs. Three birds, three stars. Almost always get 108,000, which I think is the three star threshold and high score is north of 110,000. Very consistent, but all three shots have to go pretty much as described.

By Les

I meant to say fire the laser at the first switch to open the first barrier as Hans gets to it. Hope this helps.

Same strategy I used, 116k. But I hesitate to call the last shot (Obi-Wan) consistent. It requires a fair deal of luck.

Easier way is to wait until the second column falls to the right taking out chain. Then the Obiwan shot is straight forward.

By Curtis

I send Han at a downward angle toward the first gate and blast (everyone follows on the exact same path)the controls a second before he hits. They open and he flys through when they open and the second before it closes, hitting the second controls. Then, Leia targets the middle of the gates and pulls them out of the way. Obi Wan forces the chained troopers and Luke lands the finishing blow. I’m trying to beat my score of 113,500.

Shoot the wood above the first door and send Han above the switch so that he crashes into the bottom door – this will generally force the door open without triggering the second door to close. Leia can then pull the last doors towards her, destroying the pigs in that section with the flying doors. Just leaves obi-wan with Darth and cronies.

Getting better than average results with first two but Obi NEVER knocks over Vader and nothing else after him reaches far enough. Last level of all 40 waiting for the third star. There seem to be such differences between iPhone and Internet it might be nice if people share hints special for iPhone. (Like level 40 – where the iPhone doesn’t allow the first bird to go out as soon as all the videos and methods required.)

By Scott

Best strategy for this level: use solo the same; then slip princess through second door and have her pull top of third door into chain full of pigs; then slip third bird through same way, use force to destroy vader. Done.
