Angry Birds Surf and Turf Level 17 Walkthrough

A high score strategy for Angry Birds Surf and Turf level 17 is to fire the yellow bird down at the first tower taking it down completely. Now lob the white bird at a slight arch and time the egg bomb drop so the deflated white bird ricochets back up and knocks the boulders off the ledge. With a little luck the boulders will come crashing down and finish off the pigs. The score in the video below is 109,670.

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.

Fine. I opted to use the quake after the first shot. If you are extremely lucky, I think you can finish the level off this way, which I have done on Facebook, but not yet on ABO. I had to use second bird, and played it just like the video, which caused the other boulder to fall (the one that didn’t fall from using the quake). It’s a difficult shot that demands accuracy on the move. 111k.

@dollarbill2008 what do you mean by use the quake? The power up? Are we allowed to post scores using power ups? If so I quit ..I have the power ups with update but prefer to get score the old fashioned way by persistence and skill. Are you seriously using them?

@Kathy, did you notice that your inquiry went unanswered? I can tell you, No a very big No, we can’t post scores using Power-ups, although I believe that there are those that are, regardless of the House Rules. I’ve been reading through the posts made on these walkthrough pages and I’ve noticed that dollarbill2208 writes extensively about Power-Ups, perhaps it’s best to report this to @AMslimfordy, since he’s the one in charge of these matters.

I agree 100% with @kathy. No power ups. Based on skill and a lot of persistence! And i know you are not to post any power up scores on the score boards.

I have tried the power ups at of curiosity just to see what they are about. I found they tend to hurt my score more than help… I do much better without them.! I prefer to get my score the honest way.

I did not read your post prior to launching but essentially did the same technique with the first two birds. Seems that if the egg is drop when the white bird reaches the top of the tree line, the bird has a better chance to hit the 3 stones. The “L” factor also comes into play with the debris fall to get the pigs in the grass.

I used 2 birds also and as mentioned by @thetoddman23, the 2 boulders on the top right have to both fall down to get such high scores. It’s quite a frustrating level and I had to try many times to get this score.

Getting both of the boulders to fall down to the left is a pain, you have to send the second bird up to the right so it barely clears the ledge and hits the bottom boulder, if you hit the boulders too high the top boulder often goes flying off to the right and your score will be much lower.

Rapid Fire Variation — Same as video except launch second bird as quickly as possible. In best of circumstances, fallout from first and second birds will combine to cause additional debris destruction.

First bird into the wood wall of the first tower.
It crumbles, destroying a lot of the low middle structure.
Second bird into that debris, bounces up into second tower. Lucky that some of that debris fell on the rightmost pig.
I did not use the boulders at all. Didn’t see the benefit, but apparently others get some destruction from them.

Boy these Surf n turf levels are proving to be difficult so far to get above average WITH OUT Power Ups. I got it just like video on several occasions but my scores were always in the 107K range. I also even got the second tower to fall with the first bird a few times like @xebic88 describes for an “almost” one birdie. I ended up getting two above average scores actually using Three birds. Basically same as video but the bottom right little hidden pig didn’t go with the second bird so I sent the third bird in anyway and got 110790 which is slightly above average so I’ll take it for now and move on. I’m sure I’ll have to come back though ;-)

I spend the last 2 days on this level trying to improve my ranking.. This is a really tough level to score in the top 200. I read all the comments looking to maybe get a tip to improve, but it seems that the best method is the video method. All those 120k plus scorers don’t mention just what they did to attain those lofty scores?? (@kathy, among the others… ) I finally did improve some, 227 to 163, but I’m to frustrated to go on any further.

I do want to share one tip on how to increase your odds of getting both the large boulders to fall on the second shot. I use a spot on the horizon to trigger the bird. Flip the bird as high and far as possible and trigger it just at the spot on the horizon where what looks like a “shark fin” is. Focus on that spot only and you will consistently hit the bottom boulder and get them to fall at a higher percentage of shots.. Good Luck here, you will need all you can get…

Profile photo of asherRank: Champion with 3530 points
By asher (@asher)Score: 125,120

I did almost exactly as in the video.. with a few tweaks to improve the score.

The first bird is aimed just above the horizontal wood plank, like this: http://angrybir.de/19Q8kpN
Once in a while, only a damaged barrel is remaining of the first tower.

The second bird is more tricky. In order to get really high scores, the carcass of the wb must hit the lower boulder such that:
– the boulders stay on the left side (none are thrown away to the right)
– the top boulder is propelled as far as possible along the incline, without going to the other side. This way, it will gain speed when going down, maximizing the damages

Here is a good trajectory for the second bird: http://angrybir.de/1eavJHm

And here is the resulting damages for my highscore: http://angrybir.de/19Q9YYg

A few debris are still available (especially from the first shot) so I guess that 127k is withing reach on this level.

Anyway, here is the highscore screen: http://angrybir.de/1eawlg0

Hope it helps.
