Angry Birds Birdday Party Cake 2 Level 12 (18-12) Walkthrough

Birdday Party (Birthday Party) level 18-12 is quite difficult. The best strategy is to launch the Orange bird through the vertical wooden block in the top-left structure. As soon as the Orange bird breaks the wooden block, expand the Orange bird to push the structure to the right. With good timing, the right structure will also topple from the debris. In the video, the two bottom pigs are popped, so reaching the top-right pig with the White bird is sufficient. If necessary, use Big Brother to detonate the TNT in the bottom-left. The score in the video below is 107,360.

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.

3-star Minimum Score: Originally, iOS devices required 105,000 points to obtain 3-stars on this level. This discrepancy has since been fixed, and all platforms observe the 96,000-point minimum.

After about two weeks of trying, I finally got this to work with 110K score.

Which obstacle are you referring to, lower or upper? Tried many different ways on this level, now determined to get the 105…

This was a pretty strange level for me. I play on Android, so I needed only 96,000, but for some reason I was struggling for a while to reach even that threshold; I was stuck at 88k or 92k or something. But then I finally got both top structures to fall on the first shot (also hitting the helmeted pig below) and finished off the last pig with the white bird for 107,270. So, purely by accident, I don’t have to feel guilty about getting a “cheap” three stars just from my platform!

I have been playing this level on and off for days and the highest score I’ve gotten is 102890. So frustrating! I even managed to get all the pigs with the first orange bird and still couldn’t get a score over 105000 with 2 birds left! Will have to just keep trying :(

By Stacey

I’m surprised to see no one has mentioned the lack of paper hat in the Android version, perhaps this has been mentioned elsewhere in the forum though.

Anyway, in the video the leftmost pig is wearing a paper hat, in my Android version it is not. What’s up with that? And does it affect anything?

Hey everyone,

I was wondering if I could get some help from the community. In particular, I need two to know two things about each of 4 platforms.

1) What is the minimum 3-star score for this level? The hope is that it is 96,000 for all.
2) Are there now only 2 pigs with hats: The small pig dead-center, and the pig in the top-right? This has been settled (thanks Sal)

If you can help, I’d greatly appreciate it. I would like to know this for:
iPad, iPhone/iPod Touch, Mac, and PC (all running v2.0.2).

Thanks a lot,

Not the greatest score, but sent the orange bird between chocolate cake & wood blocks @ bottom. This set off TNT & got pig & cake. White bird into side of left structure – release egg late. This should take out both structures. Clean up with Big Brother if necessary. -> 101620

Can’t believe I could actually narrow the gap between my originally lame score (just 96k) with the iOS scores (105k+).

1st bird (orange): as in video, nothing special. What surprised me is that BOTH pigs at the bottom happened to be taken out.
2nd bird (white): with no pigs left at the bottom, I took an easy straight shot and bombed the right tower.
3rd bird (Big Bro): recalling how much time I had taken just to get the final star, I actually pulled Big Bro as soon as the right tower started to collapse. After the debris settled, the score was around 93k, so I knew I could hit a new high score if I was careful enough. Hit the TNT.
Total score: 99,940. And no, I won’t regret shooting the Big Bro. I’m not aiming for the top score, anyway.

That was kind of fun: @rdnzlrips82 had tweeted me a link to a YouTube video, which should have shown me how he got his high score.
While I was waiting that the video loads on the iPad, I once again tried the strategy to hit the left vertical woods with Orange. After three or four tries it suddenly all fell very nicely, killed all pigs and gave me a total result of 117320.

Interesting though — Video shows a slightly different level than I have on iPad — Unlike the video, neither of the pigs in the “Vs” of the floating structures are wearing hats, and there is no cake just to the left of the balloons. Wonder if any of this makes a difference in the scores? I also notice that most of the high-scoring players are using phones.
Of course, I don’t think I’ve managed a 1-birder today. : (
