Aim the first yellow bird slightly above 0 degrees and activate its speed boost immediately. Goes through the group of 3 small planks, through the thin wooden barrier, through the thicker one, then the TNT.

Yes, the key was to accelerate soon after shooting…it seems to make him go through much easier and smoother than a late boost ;-)

Truly confirmed. Strech the slingshot with a finger and leave another one on the touchscreen. This will make the bird accelerate immediatly.

Thanks for the tip. I was able to improve my score significantly so I’d like to think that was the reason.

This acceleration off the line tactic is interesting but just as much damage can be done by aiming slightly higher and speed boosting closer to the target.

I just got the top score on this level using the tactic mentioned by kartflyer, it seems as if it does aid in getting higher scores so thank you for posting it. I imagine that I need to post proof, so I’ve uploaded the screenshot of the game end frame and will post the link here.

Ditto, boosted score by 2000 points in just two tries.

Anbody been able to pop the duck? Just curious if anything happens.

By Dom

After many tries, I was finally able to get the duck. End result was 500 points. That is it.

By CaLee

Thanks Dom, I tried to no avail and was wondering if it was worth trying more. Seems like something better than that should happen. ;)

112,610 took a bit and I barely got three stars with hitting the 112 mark. Phew :)

I had better luck with a higher trajectory and boosting at last possible second.

P.S. I hate one-bird levels that are wishy washy like this one. One shot you’re not even clearing half of the debris and looking at 2 stars. Next shot, you’re looking at hardly anything left but the watermelon trees.

P.P.S. I love that watermelons grow on trees in Angry Birds land! :)

I also noticed another key to a higher score here. If your bird skims and does damage to the front two stone blocks holding in the TnT, it boosts your score. It also helps if your bird carries through the building out the other side and does damage to the wood out there.

@rdnzlrips82 Had success with the little higher fling and activated it right before impact as RD mentioned. It was a direct hit on the tnt and did a lot of damage but still cannot get those watermelon trees.

I see. Everyone’s high scores. It just seems like you can shoot everywhich way to sideways and sundays. Comes down to luck of the fall..oh well above average good enough for now:) ty
And thanks everyone for helpful tips :)

I had the best luck following Ripsys strat as well, I also noticed if you do a bit of damage to the glass at the end it can really add to your points as well! As an aside, has anyone else noticed that if the fishing rod isn’t destroyed it takes a life of its own and keeps hopping around destroying things until it leaves the screen? It’s a bit of a creep factor to watch! Thank you @rdnzlrips82 for a great alt strat! :) OB another on the Ripsy tab if you will! ;)

Just one of those levels that is easily 1-birded but it all comes down to destruction. I probably 1-birded this level 500 times before I got 117k

Wow, this was not an easy one.

I was stuck at 117k for 2 days before deciding to use my mind instead of flinging blindly and to find a way to squeeze the extra k from this level.

Here is goes: the idea is to delay as much as possible the explosion of the TNT, letting time for the structure to collapse a little.

So instead of searching a direct hit, the first bird is shot (and accelerated almost immediately) low enough to take the 3 small vertical wood blocks, and to touch the TNT without detonating it.
Here is a pic:

At this point, 3 things can happen:
1. Nothing, the bird vanishes before doing something. Honestly that most of the time.
2. The bird rebounds once before detonating the TNT. This is quite good and I got 119k and a lot of high 118k with this.
3. The bird slides down and detonate the lower TNT box. That’s the best case, and combined with a lucky detonation and debris dispersion it led to the highscore (for now).

Using this strategy and depending on the delay you can score as much as 30k before the detonation.

Here is the screen showing the final destruction:

And here is the highscore screen:

It’s time to try the next level ;-)

Hope it helps.

So it’s the end of May 2014 and I’m still no further on with this level and have no clue as to how the top score was achieved. All I know it was on an Android Tablet and the closest to it is 14k away on an iPad. The rest of us are just “also-rans”. I think I will have to have a lie down and reconsider my options!

It’s not a typo, but I don’t know anymore how I got it. But I can’t remember that I was top score in the moment I entered it? And even 10k better than second place.
How can I see in ABO if it is a Power up score? @sal9
