Angry Birds Birdday Party Cake 2 Level 5 (18-5) Walkthrough

Our strategy for Birdday Party (Birthday Party) level 18-5 is to launch the first White bird just above the first TNT, dropping the bomb next to the TNT and having the bird ricochet into the top-left structure. In this video, after all debris settles, only three pigs remain: bottom-left, dead center, and top-right. Being mindful to avoid the balloon, use the next White bird to bomb the bottom-left structure. Then use the Black bird to attack the middle structure, and a high-arcing shot for the last pig in the top-right. The score in the video below is 180,480.

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.

I just tried this level without seeing this video and got the top score of 191840. W/b at top of the first pig and bounced against the second just above it. Next w/b on top of the left middle structure. Finished with the b/b at the top left structure and finished this level with three birds left. A lot of luck was involved here!

Dropped bomb on the first TNT and slammed into high left tower, TNT exploded as well. Both pigs killed. Bird dropped straight down to low left pig and killed it while debris activated TNT 3+4 killing the pigs under it. Debris fell on far right pig to kill it as well. Great first shot. Second shot on the side of the middle tower with activating the bomb which made 3000 points extra via cherry and pig killed. Middle tower collapsed on lower right pig and killed it as well. Far left pig was taken out via black bird. I am sure 200K+ is possible.

Repeatable two birder (not easy).

WB release egg by first balloon killing bottom left pig. Ricochet into top left tnt, this sets off chain reaction. The idea is to clear top two pigs, bottom left, right 3 pigs AND leave TNT intact by where you dropped the egg (leaving tnt and getting top two pigs is easy, the right 3 pigs happens every 5-10 times.

Next WB at big round boulder without dropping egg right of where the first balloon is (or was if gone) this pushes structure over to knock down middle structure and remaining pig. I practiced this shot so every other time it works now.

@skowse Outstanding strategy!!! Wow, cannot believe I did it with two birds. The joy of Angry Birds. The debris fall was amazing to watch and how it took out everything. It was not easy with the first White Bird but eventually it did work. Aiming at the ballon and the egg release were the key. Thank you. I improved the 3 star score by 45k+.

@kathy make sure the balloon is on the far right before you drop the egg or it messes up your first shot, I aimed Vail so her head is a wee bit above the balloon and make sure you drop the egg onto the pig below or your next shot will need to follow lesleygs 2nd shot. The next one if all the right and top pigs are gone (reset if not!) you have to aim so the bird hits that boulder hard enough to send everything right to get the middle pigs, this one was hard for me to aim right because the balloon is usually gone. Make sure before you shoot that that balloon and string are completely out of the way! I don’t know how many times my impatience messed that shot up because of the string or balloon flying into the sky!! I’d also tell you if you flub the first shot do the second anyways for practice on the right aim!! That helped me tons! I hope this helps :)

Great Strat @skowse, thank you!
After hundreds of flings, I found I can hit the top level more often by waiting for the left balloon to float to the far left (until bending over), then aim the WB slightly up at TNT, release bomb just after clearing left leaning balloon and before TNT , dropping bomb to hit bottom pig. WB should shot up and hopefully hit the top pigs / TNT and with luck also clearing right side to accomplish this first shot. Not easy…. but doable. Takes a few times to find the correct angle.

For second shot if the left TNT is still here, hit the wood board just enough to have it roll off to right, hitting and exploding on middle tower. If you missed the left lower pig in the first shot, it is a very skilled shot to take out middle tower and all 3 left side pigs with this one shot, but can be done (I practiced this second shot if I didn’t get first shot right).

As of May 2013, you need over 193k+ to get in top 100! You need to do this in two shots using the first 2 WB , have over 153k+ with 4 birds left over (1 bomb bird and 3 YB). Also as this date, there is one less cake available for an extra 3k points. In the walk through above there are 3 cakes, now there are only 2. The top left yellow cake is now missing which takes away 3k possible points that prior players had available. Without this extra 3k, it would be impossible to get in top 50 of the higher scores, but top 100 is still attainable. Why did they remove this cake?!?!?
Good luck and happy flinging!

Oops, looks like the top 50 can be done without the third cake, as SamsonKJ has done. Or maybe the #3 cake is missing in my platform using iPad? If not, I stand corrected! Nice score SamsonKJ!

This ia another quirky one! And a one bird solution. This is on an iphone. I’ve noticed that if you just leave it alone it will start to self destruct. I have had over 13K without using a bird. It took about 10 minutes I got fed up! and I used just the first white bird to knock out all the pigs. Unfortunately the score was only in 160K’s as the central tower didn’t fall completely and before it counted my score I ended up hitting it with the second white bird to try and get more points. This resulted in 176k. I think if we get lucky here and have the patience the score could be rather high.

Re the above post. 160k should read 130k. I’ve done some more experimenting with this method but have not managed to better my high as yet. Sometimes the bottom two pigs on either side of the central tower will self destruct for 24k+ and sometimes the top part of the central tower will go as well. Work in progress!

I used skowse’s basic method above but I had to “upgrade” the second shot. I was able to get the first shot like he describes, sending WB about level with the first balloon, dropping egg there and having her richchet to hit top left TNT which causes the chain reaction to take out both top pigs, tnt and all right piglets, etc and leave that first tnt intact (just right of that first balloon) BUT, for some reason the first left bottom pig where the egg drops, always seems to remain. I get the top stones and wood but that pesky pig usually remains for me.
So for my second shot, instead of aiming it at the big boulder to push the whole thing forward including tnt to take out the remaining middle structure and pig. I send second WB low to drop egg on that first left pig that didn’t die from first drop and then ricochet it’s body to go up and take out the wood piece under the boulder which works perfectly to get the boulder and tnt to fall right and explode taking out that middle structure. I hope this second shot helps some of you that were having the same problem as me with that first piglet! Here’s a screenshot of the second shot’s trajectory:

Wow @lesleyg (my Queen) nice score! I’m having a heck of a time with the 1st shot on this one, the flying small stones usually hit the left TNT that I’m supposed to miss, & I don’t often get the chain reaction off the right side to get those pigs. And I’ve also found that the 1st egg bomb doesn’t get the 1st pig – very strange.
A word of advice – wait a bit after the 1st shot, sometimes those small stones get blown sky high & can take up to 10 seconds to come back down & do more damage which can change whether you reset or fling your 2nd bird.
I have to admit, these cascading chain-reaction type levels are not my favourite. Perhaps those dastardly swine can sense my heart isn’t in this one, but I’m determined to improve by more than the 4k I’ve got so far.

Thanks @karen68!!!!I know exactly what you mean…usually when I see these type of “cascading chain-reaction” levels, I immediately want to run, lol…They can make your head spin like in alot of the Christmas ones!!! But if I just take a step back and think about what needs to hit where, I can usually get through it ;-)

BTW…It seems I had better luck when I sent first WB in just slightly higher then the balloon. It seems it has a better chance of hitting higher up on the top tnt structures and those stones go right more often to start the chain reaction verses going left to hit the tnt that’s suppose to remain intact. Perhaps that is why my first piggy likes to remain. GL..I’m sure by days end you will have beat me ;-)

This is like one of those Golden Egg episodes, all you need is a lot of luck and a well placed first shot (just like in video), except it turned into a 1-Birder, then everything just crumbled and the points racked up.
