Angry Birds Birdday Party Cake 2 Level 3 (18-3) Walkthrough

Our strategy for Birdday Party (Birthday Party) level 18-3 is to launch the White bird as low as possible, but still clearing the balloons to bomb the TNT on the left. The stones and bird should launch into the main structure, pushing it to the right. Loft the next White bird over the structure and bomb to the right of the next-to-last vertical support — directly above the last pig. Use the first Yellow bird horizontally, just above the pillar, to clear all pigs in the interior. Use the final Yellow bird as necessary. The score in the video below is 69,680.

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.

Yes. The four horisontal boards lie in a line. If you hit the first it can sometimes transfer the blow through the whole structure.

I found it easier to launch both white birds straight at the structure and drop the egg out right before hitting. I beat it without using any yellow birds this way.

I’m baffled, but I just got a 90k two-birder. The first bird was sent just over the pile of stones and activated just before hitting the white pillar, which exploded the TNT and stones quite forcefully (one of which happened to land fortuitously on the cake). Since the carcass took out the pillar and the wooden plank immediately above it, I sent the second bird on approximately the same trajectory, just a little higher, and also activated just before impact to push over the whole structure with surprisingly good destruction. I think the method is repeatable, but this was an abnormally high score to get from it.

On bird 1, is there any reason for not bombing just past the rightmost structure? It takes out those two pieces of wood in Manu’s strategy as well as the pig, and the right wall.

Profile photo of to mock a mockingbirdRank: Champion with 3985 points
By to mock a mockingbird (@vuelva)Score: 90,620

just replayed the strategy for ten minutes for the daily challenge (just to check; too many things to do today) and it still works as described (got two collapses in ten minutes; first didn’t get the tnt, second didn’t get the bottom right pig).

about bombing past the structure: i think the pieces of wood falling to the right first (instead of being taken out immediately) drags the neighbouring vertical piece of wood in the main structure a bit to the right, and i was thinking (imagining?) that that was giving the structure a bit more stability hindering its later collapse. in the same way i imagined that when bombing them directly, the pig bumping into the structure was helping the later collapse by pushing the vertical piece of wood inward, to the left. anyway, iirc i had stopped trying bombing to the right, going for the easier and effective shot of bombing the pieces directly (this frequently, say 1 in 3, takes out the pig as well and may pre-damage the right wall). good luck.

I suceeded twice to perfrom manumalin strat.

The key is to lauch Mathilda as low as possible and to drop the egg as late as possible. You must both:
* have the egg explode above the column
* have Mathilda subsequently hit the pile of glass + two hollow wooden squares as low as possible

The nice thing is that once you shake the structure strong enough thanks to the above requirements, you are likely to have Mathilda to bounce far backward and hit the TNT. I think that you get both things to happen: at least you do not need to be lucky twice after your shot.

@stocktoad @sglouk thanks for the info, gentlemen. I can get Matilda to bounce back to the TNT quite often, using several different shots, but judging by what sglouk says, I’ve been dropping the egg too early & too high, and these trajectories apparently just don’t affect the structure.

FWIW the shot I’ve been mostly using is the same as @vuelva http://angrybir.de/XyH8JI It worked fine for him, so maybe it’s me, maybe it’s that shot on PC. Who knows? :)

Yep, @sglouk was right. Sending Matilda low over the column, and dropping egg very close to the stacked hollow wood block – glass block – hollow wood block makes a huge difference. It only took a few tries to get the collapse, and an 81k 2b.

For an idea of just how low to fling, when I dropped the egg, Matilda’s eyes were roughly level with the seam between the glass block and bottom hollow wood block.

looks much the same as the one i posted before qua trajectory and point of release (that was taken on ipad 2 to which the pixels in its comment also refer), but didn’t get the tnt this time :-(. wouldn’t know how to drop the egg much lower than i was doing without hitting the horizontal plank, but my Mathilda-(or is it Matilda?)-precision is not that great; about half of the time i’m too late. my idea of the mechanics of this is that the carcass has to hit several of the elements in the structure simultaneously in order to bounce back, otherwise it just carries on (but would have to check this on a video recording).

I launched the WB,dropping the egg to the left of the column,hoping to set off the tnt. As the egg landed,the entire structure BLEW UP! There was nothing left but the carcass of the WB. This resulted in a score of 103,470. This was on my android-based tablet.

wow. amazing phenomena and score @meanguy !

your three recent top scores are that much above the others, while it doesn’t seem like you’re doing anything substantially different from what the rest of us are doing that it makes me wonder what’s going on,
is it the device, is it the os, or is it your skills (combined maybe with a streak of luck)?

(in this level your shot was described by austinrhl i think, and i myself had tried it many times without experiencing anything coming close; in 16-4 the destruction you got on your 2nd bird is unreal (although the final score is feasible i think) and what with your recent the big set up top score? there also the description of the strategy of the previous top scorer seems just the ordinary strategy, but also he’s getting (on android) consistently way higher scores than i experienced before on ipad for `the same’ shots).)

you always had many excellent scores (resulting from hard work), but it’s just that this is now three levels in a row for you where i don’t even have an idea how i could repeat what you did (to get the phenomena) or to come close , whereas this hardly ever happens to me (but may just have to get used to that).

hard to know what’s going on. to find out, except for trying to repeat it on your own device, it could also be interesting if you would (could) try to repeat these on another device/os.

@vuelva- First, Thank you. Second,I work very hard at AB Challenges. I usually play the selected level for a while before going to ABN to read strategies & look at videos. In 16-4,it was your postings,& a few others,that I used to get my score. I was on my tablet,and both shots worked beautifully. I’m also sure that there was a lot of luck involved.

As for The Big Setup 11-12,I had the top score in that level for quite a while. Then I got an AB Notification that my score had been beaten. I get these notices every now & then,but most of them turn out to be bogus. So,as I usually do,I checked out the new high score holder. This player was new to ABN but had posted several scores,so I decided to replay the level,to raise my score. It took a couple of days,but I did it. The very next day,my score was beaten,again,by the same player. So,back I went,playing again over several days,until Fate,Luck,Kismet,call it what you want,stepped in and everything worked to perfection. Since I was on my PC at the time,I got a screen shot showing the near-total destruction of 11-12. Here is the link;

As for repeating my results on various devices/os, I only have a Dell PC & a Thrive (android)Tablet. Some levels play better on one,some on the other.

@vuelva- Your inquiry did not sound unfriendly at all. Nearly every time I look at ABN to see how a level is supposed to work,I marvel at the solutions people come up with. Sometimes,even after reading & re-reading how a high score,in any level,was achieved,I often have trouble making things work. Playing AB makes me strongly believe in repetition. So often,I’ve been incredibly close to a great score,only to have the level either time itself out (usually called premature calculation by some birders)or one of my birds misses its’ mark by a pixel or two. Then it’s just repeat…repeat…repeat & hope for the best.
As a side note, it’s strategy by you and videos by the admins & @e-star that I usually look to for guidance.

As for this level, If you got screenshots of the destruction, it sounds to me like all the answers are in there. We need to find a way for you to get them off the device. Btw, if there is something unusual about your device/OS that benefits scores. It wouldn’t be the first time. Blossom River #20 has a similar quirk for older iOS devices.

In last night’s Challenge, I was so busy watching the level go to pieces,that by the time I thought to get a screen shot,the counter had started,closing out the level. All I was able to get was the final score after a reset.

As to my screen shots, I usually have no problem taking the picture on my android-based Toshiba Thrive by pressing the on button & the volume button at the same time. What I can’t make work is getting the picture into my ABN album. I’ve tried every setting I could think of, but nothing works. So, I usually just send the picture from my ‘photo’ section on my tablet,via email to myself. Then, on my PC, I transfer the pic from email to my desktop. From there, I open my ABN album & download the picture into it.

I’ve found some Thrive forums online, which is where I found out how to get a screen shot to work.

@meanguy Thanks for the info! My project involves figuring out which levels play better/worse on which platforms. I can only test PC/iOS, so Android data is a rare & valuable commodity for me. :)

As for this level, I see you’ve played a little Rio High Dive. Not sure if you’re familiar with the weird super-explosions there, but if you are, was this explosion similar? You said everything blew up, which I assume means the structure went airborne. High Dive is the only place I’ve seen anything like that. Must’ve been quite a sight. :)

btw, you’re not the only Thrive user with upload issues. I tried to help someone with that problem awhile back. The only solutions I found were:
1) Try a few different browsers, and see if the upload controls work on one of them.
2) Install Dropbox (2GB free), then enable the Camera upload feature on your tablet. When connected to wifi, every pic is auto-uploaded to the cloud. You can then grab it with PC and send to ABN. It saves the step of emailing it, but may not be any faster in the end.

@kelani- I have played a bit of Rio High Dive,(one of these days I’ll have to enter all my scores),but so far,nothing weird has happened.

When I said blew up,I meant it. As the egg dropped into the space to the left of the pillar,everything jumped up & to the right,and the screen shook like when the Bomb Bird detonates. I play with the audio turned off so I can’t tell you what the sound effects were like. I’ve seen partial explosions in other levels,but nothing like the near total devastation of this one. Two party hats,one concrete ball,& the carcass of the WB were all that remained.

Thanks for the possible help with my Thrive. I’ve tried the different browsers approach. The Dropbox idea is new to me. I’ll have to look into it. Thank you !!

@kelani- I checked out Dropbox,as you suggested. After playing with it for a while, it seems to be what I need to upload pictures to my ABN album on my tablet.
THANK YOU !!!

@meanguy No problem, man. I’m glad that helped you out. Let me know if you come across any more of those explosive levels :)

@admins- Yesterday,10/2/14, I received an email from ABN telling me that my High Score in Birdday Party,Cake 2,level 18-3 had been beaten…by over 23,000 points! This is impossible. On Aug.26/27 this level was the Challenge of the day. In my posts from that day you can read that I got my score thru a fluke explosion of the level on a reset. Now,some newbie flinger is claiming to have beaten my score by an even more impossible score.
As I always do when notified by ABN that one of my High Scores has been surpassed, I checked out this player,”nottsonice”. According to their profile,this player became an ABN member on 10/2/14,yet has posted scores on many of the Angry Birds (original) levels,and has claimed at least 4 High Scores in this level. Another of their claimed high scores is in BP,Cake 2,level 18-14,where this players score is more than 18,000 points higher than second place.
Admins please check this out. THANKS

Thanks @meanguy. I think this was actually an innocent mistake of the user placing their “Cake 4″ scores under “Cake 2″.

@amslimfordy- I just got another email from ABN telling me that once again the player identified as nottsonice has taken the top spot for BP 18-3 and by the same exact impossible score . This player is also listed ,again,as having the High Score for this level. Without power-ups I don’t think this score is possible. Please look into this,again.

@admins- Just like on Oct 3,this morning I received an email from ABN saying that another player,’kostas’,has reported an impossibly high score for this level. After checking this person’s other scores,they have listed a total of 7 high scores in BP and one other in a different level,all of which seem not possible. According to this player’s profile,he/she has been an ABN member for only 5 days,recording hundreds of scores. They may not know that using power-up scores is not allowed. Please look into this. Thank you

@repanask be aware that power up scores are not allowed on our Leaderboards – I removed your score (124,060)
