Angry Birds Star Wars Cloud City Level 4-21 Walkthrough

Our strategy for Angry Birds Star Wars Cloud City level 4-21 is to send Lando Calrissian through the bottom-left pig. Once he pops the pig, fire the triple-blaster just below the rightmost pig. The ricochets should slice the chains above the level, and falling debris should pop the pigs below. The score in the video below is 68,160.

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.

Without vidoe 64K+, with film 68K+, @traneric way 70.5K+. It’s FAST, FLAT shot – middle red going flat at described wood. Resize a screen a bit for faster aim.

Alternatively, shoot the middle laser with a very slight downward angle just over the vertical metal pillar next to the rightmost stormtrooper. The laser will bounce back and forth and eventually cause the rightmost tower to collapse to the left.

By Brad

Alternatively, send Lando BACKWARDS, firing about 1/3 of the way to the edge of the screen. This permits greater spread of laser bolts to directly knock out top and bottom pigs and relies less on ricochets. 72,550

I got an accidental three star using a modified [again, by accident] version of @traneric‘s strat, bumped the screen and aimed above the head of the right pig, got the wood with the bottom laser and one of the others cut the chain for the top right metal panel which fell and got the bottom right pig on the chain, the one that was usually left hanging.

Same way as @traneric but a slight caution which is to land Lando on the left side of chains as the right pig below with the chains does not pop easily so landing Lando on the left chains causes the right pig to swing back and pop.

Fire the first bird into the top left hanging pig’s box. Immediately after firing, blast the bottom of the ice ball on the second hanging chain. I think that’s it, and it seems to work. Just got my current score that way.

@uncle-b, here’s a non-rotated pic. I managed 73180 on iPad just an hour into the Challenge, so I think puppies are possible.

http://www.angrybirdsnest.com/members/justpast40/album/picture/11394/

The trajectory in the pic pretty much aligns with thee-Michelle. The dotted line intersects the groove/
notch/indentation on the left vertical metal the pig sits on.

I don’t remember how quickly I fired for the 73980 score, but tonight at least, if I fire immediately, it’s not working, so I’m delaying the firing until I’m about 1/3 of the way to the pig. The tap point I’m using for now for the release is just below the ice ball.

My 73980 is on an Android phone & I’m a firm believer in differences between platforms & devices, so you & @kelani may need to do some fine tuning, although you both have good scores.

(Rovio’s fault for putting pale pink on a bright blue background. Say it with me, “Useless!”) I ended up trying both but had more luck the “wrong” way. (Not like screenshot.) I got my almost good enough 72,320 going up to the hanging pig and firing through the ice/glass ball. Don’t have it in me now to keep trying but I may stop back during the day. See what I need to overtake whoever in in 50th place. (Sorry in advance but I will be trying, lol.) Good luck all!

To make it more clear upper two lasers go through the upper two left cage so the piece of chain fall on the bottom left pig. The lowest laser goes between the vertical metal pieces on the right and ricochets between the right tower and the metal piece next to it, making the tower completely fall to the left.

When aiming backwards, trajectory line just under angled triangular light blue corner on left of screen. Remember, this may appear differently on the various platforms & perhaps isn’t visible on all screen resolutions. For this pic I’m zoomed about 1/2 way out on 4th generation iPad :

http://www.angrybirdsnest.com/members/justpast40/album/picture/11400/

I tapped the left corner of the metal triangle roof atop the rightmost pig. Now here’s the hard part … when to tap. All I can say is you have to be able to visualize the entire screen & where you want the lasers to go. For me & how I was shooting Lando (full power isn’t the same for all of us,) I tapped when he was still climbing & almost to his highest point.

I also went with the backwards shot, though a slightly different tap point. I aimed just under the blue “handle”, tapping between the ice disc & the hanging metal bar to its right, just a bit closer to the bar. I tapped as Lando passed by the blue handle, so not immediately.

I’m sorry I don’t have a pic of remaining debris. Star Wars usually crashes on me if I snap a screenshot just before the score tallies & I lose the score.
This shot shows the score plus the aim & tap points.

Same backward shot as eveybody else. I managed a bunch of 75k shots in 20 minutes. 76k took about an hour.

The High Score listed on the Challenge page is 74,450, but looking at the Top 50 List it appears Flo at 74,290 is the Puppy threshold to beat? Either way, Ol’ Uncle B will be welcoming Puppy #3 thanks to using the “backward method” shared by Brad and @crivit. Thanks Guys!

@mumsie42 ~ Seems the Challenge today will require several litters of puppies!
Congratulations to all taking home one of those furry warm and wigglies today ~ I’d list everyone but there’s only so much room on the page ~ LOL !!!

btw @uncle-b Just to make sure I’m not doing something completely wrong, where’d you target your blaster, and when did you trigger it?

Here’s what I’ve been doing most often @Kelani ~ but I do mix it up slightly if for no other reason than to see what results (hopefully successful) those variations might bring.

(“Left” and “Right” as used below are those of the player looking at the screen.)

I play the backward-shot with the screen zoomed all the way out (typically I like to play zoomed in as much as the particular shot will allow). On the left side of the screenshot there is the right-hand side of an overhead “ring wall” that appears to be identical to the full overhead ring that occurs at the center of the scene. On that side of that partial ring-wall that appears closest to the viewer there is a strip of horizontal light blue “highlights” on the darker background with reddish highlights above those. I aim to toss through those light blue highlights (although the actual trajectory will fall short of reaching them), and I fire when at the apex of the toss. My aiming point is exactly at (or as close as possible to) the top of the metal triangle cap of the far right tower.

My objective is to have the lower missile go through the center gap in the metal protecting wall in front of the far right tower and ricochet multiple times between the lower metal wall panel of the tower and the back of the protecting wall until the metal wall panel of the tower disintegrates. The tower then being supported on only the rear wooden wall panel will slowly topple to the left knocking the metal protection wall over into the void where the debris will hopefully kill the lower right stormtrooper now dangling on the chain.

I will immediately reset if either the bottom left pig survives the falling debris from the hanging chains and pigs above or if the lower missile fails to enter the center gap and destroy the lower metal wall panel of the tower. I’m estimating both of those objectives are met perhaps 20 to 30-percent of the time, and of those successes the lower right stormtrooper is killed perhaps 75-percent of the time (along with all other pigs & stormtroopers of course which almost always happens).

Most of the scores I’ve been achieving using the backward strategy with the denoted aiming points seem to be in the 71K to 73K range, so at least for me, a score over 74K is an outlier so it’s necessary to process a lot of shots as quickly as possible.

Go and do likewise Grasshopper…….

With a forward shot, getting the puppy would have been tough, but with the backward shot, it’s all too easy…

Sorry @mumsie42 to contribute to a busy day for you!

P.S. How come that ABSW killers such as @wicket182 et al. did not spend enough time on such levels prior to challenge to make the top score unreachable for laymen such as me? In ABSp such situation almost never happens. But today, I am happy with this!

Ok, I’m apparently missing something. I can’t get above 73k with any of the backward-shot strategies, and haven’t been able to figure out what I’m doing wrong. Whenever I get the complete collapse, the middle chain with the ice ball breaks the bottom right pig’s chain. When the right structure falls, it’s always just as the bottom right pig swings out of the way. If I adjust aim to stop the center chain from causing this situation, the left pig in the little tower survives.

Thanks to each and everyone who posted tips as they ALL helped! This is truly team effort at it’s finest ;-)

@kelani – I have no doubt you will get yours too! Sending major “L” factor your way and here is what worked for me on my highest score (#2) no less at the moment…

As you see in my screenshot…I aimed Landon to line up at the very tip of that triangle edge just under the “circled-handle” piece. You’ll see the trajectory dots in the screenshot. Then just as he gets there at the tip, I tapped dead center of the cement triangle. I’ve got it several times but noticed if I tapped dead center, I had better results and the ricochet worked perfect to knock out the vertical cement piece on the far right structure causing the whole thing to tumble left.

Thanks again to everyone and congrats to all who have gotten their new puppies!!! A special thanks to @brad who came up with the idea of the backwards shot and @crivit who brought it to our attention ;-)

From my side congratulations to the owners of the massive litter of puppies for today. I didn’t quite manage to be one, but I managed a round 74,000 on the backward method, which is acceptable for now but could mostly only get in the 72k range. The forward method yielded 70-71k. Just couldn’t manage more.

Thanks to my good friends @xebic88 and @bernersenn for the messages earlier and special congrats to both of you.

I got my highscore back, for now. It took only a few hundred attempts.
For my previous highscore I used the other method described by @thee-michelle. That in this level is so much possible, I really did not expect.

I used the nearly 45° backward shot and fired slightly downward at the triangle little above the left tip.
Thanks @crivit for the rediscovering and to all the other untanglers.

@uncle-b Amen to that! I’m doubly happy with it because I finally ended the no-kelpuppy-during-a-puppyfest streak. That one was getting to be ridiculous. :) btw, your description is what did the trick. On my screen, I had to aim a bit higher than the arc you mentioned, but the timing and blaster aim point were what I was doing wrong. Apparently 10-20ms and 5 pixels makes a huge difference here. :)

@kelani, congrats !! I was just about to reply to an earlier post of yours referencing not being able to use 2 hands on the PC (1 to fling/1 to tap,) but I can’t find the post now.

I think it’s important for PC users to know that 2 hands, especially in this case isn’t necessary. I can’t even get my left hand in a position to release Lando to the left (to the right yes, but not left.)
