Angry Birds Birdday Party Cake 2 Level 9 (18-9) Walkthrough

Birdday Party (Birthday Party) level 18-9 is quite difficult. Our strategy is to launch the Orange bird into the top-left corner of the first structure, expanding it just before impact. This should cause towers to fall rightward, detonating some TNTs along the way. Use the White birds as necessary to pop any remaining pigs. The score in the video below is 95,450.

1st shot – o/b shot to the top of the 1st structure that collapsed to the right, the cake cut through the TNT cable starting off a beautiful chain reaction with an "almost".. see photo.. http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/341/img1379.png/

110k with 2 birds. First high up to fall between first TNT and tower. Detonate when it reach the bottom of middle tower. If done at the right time it pushes the tower intact into the third tower. When TNT of middle tower detonate it can wipe completely the two last towers.
Wait for the balloons in front to be at the lowest. Send w/b low and drop egg so the bird bounce up into the bottom wood of the first tower (that should be stiking out). If done right that can wipe out the first tower completely.

So in your first shot, did the orange bird hit the leftmost cake or the first TNT (or neither)? Because when I tried your method, the middle TNT always blew off before the tower even started to lean towards the right tower, so the right tower was hardly scratched after the shot (which means another screw-up).

And I haven’t even passed it yet. :'(

Never mind, just passed it.

I think the ultimate target is to have the outer slabs in the left side of BOTH the left tower and the right tower to fall when using your method. By this the follow-up shots by the white birds will be much easier. Otherwise the white birds will only be good enough to destroy the slabs (and scratch the inner tower, which ain’t good).

By Rhyl (@rhyl)Score: 112,440

I found something similar gave a high score – when combined with a lot of luck. First bird is high, just skimming down the left side of the middle tower. Inflate it at the halfway point on the tower. If you’re lucky (or try this several 1000 times) some of the debris propelled by the inflation will take out the balloon holding the right TNT box. More luck, and that TNT box will fall into the rightmost tower, exploding about halfway down, knocking over the third tower along with all the piggies. Finish off the leftmost tower with Manu’s bounce method.

I was completely and utterly incapable of topping my old high of 97k with the “2-bird + luck + hundreds of tries” method.
This finally got me over 100k and I did it 4x in under 50 tries – so I claim it’s repeatable.
My strategy is to use all 3 birds – I got a 2-birder this way & only got 102k.

1st bird:
Shoot at the left side of the left tower.
Hit between the middle & top, fire bird right as it hits.
This should completely destroy the left tower and do a lot of damage to the middle tower.
You can break 100k as long as the left-side outer bricks fall – otherwise start over.
If you find the magic ninja sweet spot, sometimes you’ll almost destroy the left AND center towers.
2nd bird:
Middle-height shot to destroy center tower and damage right tower.
Depending on how well you did with the first bird, you’re either cleaning up or trying to topple the tower.
Same as first bird – if the outer blocks on the right tower don’t fall, start over.
3rd bird:
Should just be cleaning up or toppling the right tower.

This is fine with me of course, but i find it strange that i’m so easily getting higher scores for the three (known to be tough) levels of birdday episode 18 i have been revisiting recently (last time i had played them was half a year ago; hadn’t played seriously then but had given them a decent try). Moreover these new scores are close to established top scores. Has the gameplay been altered (e.g. variation in explosive power of orange bird?) in the latest update or is it just chance?

I find Birdday particularly random, especially with the hat/bird combo generating more points on some levels. Even when they land together, you never know when they will generate extra points. Frankly, I am growing quite weary of the randomness and will probably move on from AB to a game where results don’t leave me scratching my head.

indeed, hats added a large random factor to it, more so than the helmets and stalacties in m&d, but less so than e.g. the wheel in the last s&t level. for fun i’m sometimes wondering what would an ai for playing ab look like; it should be an interesting research project. zero-bird levels: do wait;repeat. 1-bird levels: shoot always exactly the same until randomness of ab itself gives you a good score ((unsupervised) learning where to shoot should still be interesting). i think it should be doable to make an ai outperforming humans. patience/time won’t be the problem in any case.

It’s a one bird shot, high toward the middle tower, touch and inflate at the level of the lowest horizontal stone plank.

130710 with one bird. Cake into balloon.

There is something happening when you are playing a level long enough. You start noticing small things. Then you try to repeat them.

In this case, if the left hanging TNT is detonated at its closest to the middle cake it will send it directly into the right balloon, the right TNT will then fall and take care of the right tower.

By timing your flinging right you can make it happen 95% of the time.
Don’t wait though, since the swinging movement is stopping after a few swings.

And don’t inflate the bird too soon or the right TNT will explode on top of the tower for minimal damages.

Here is the trajectory and final result for my best score.
That’s not the top score, but I think that @moondoggie top score is a real outlier here ;-)

And this is the highscore screenshot.

Hope it helps.

116230 in 2 birds. Launched balloon bird to come down between the first 2 towers, being careful to not touch either the cake or the hanging TNT. Expand him about half way down. This clears pretty much all of the first 2 towers. In one case, the 2 TNT boxes were still intact. Launched white bird across to the last tower and cleared it.

I gave up trying to get more than just the first tower using the upper left corner technique. Coming down between the 2 towers allowed for consistent scores >100,000. Worked 90% of the time. No luck needed.

The can total both towers. If the thin stone veneer on the left side of the right tower is knocked off, fling White and drop the bomb so the carcass strikes about half way up.

right, much easier now. up from 118k- (when the level was still tough to 1-bird) to 125180/1. strategy is different as well. before (see above), expanding at the bottom of the second tower was the preferred 1-bird strategy, now (see the comment above) i was sending the bird to the middle of the second tower (just missing the tnt or just clipping it) and expanding right next to it (just before or after impact). got the 125k score when flying debris made the right tnt drop and that exploded (by hitting a `veneer’ thin stone falling to the left) just to the left of the right tower. not easily repeatable i think, but had it happen another time; then the right tower refused to collapse but just making it fall with the 2nd gave a 118k score, so i think 130k scores are feasible; also because i had several 120k+ scores with 2 birds before, the best one being 122k (as described by grrtammy; after a 90k+ 1st i sent the carcass of the 2nd onto the lower wood plank of the right tower).

This level is now much easier indeed!

I think I used a different strategies than the ones described by @vuelva and @moondoggie, wich is in my opinion more repeatable.

I also launch the bird high arc in a way as to fall on the (balancing) tnt when it is close to the cake of middle tower and then activate at the bottom of the middle tower. To do so I launch the bird when the tnt is on its way to the right side.

The result is that the cake will fly right and cut the string holding the second tnt. With luck the tnt will fall as to push the right tower and get you a one birder more or less fruitfull. I got after few attemps a score of 130k.

Hope this helps
