Angry Birds Mine and Dine 3 Star Walkthrough Level 15-8

Our strategy for Mine and Dine level 15-8 is to fire the first White bird straight ahead, dropping its bomb on the left side and ricocheting into the structure. Fire the first Yellow bird into the same spot, trying to reach the TNT. With the next White bird, loft a little over the debris of the left structure, dropping the bomb on the right side of the pile and ricocheting the bird into the last set of stalactites. The TNT should have triggered by now, and the stalactite will clear the right tower. The score in the video below is 126,140.

Alternate higher scoring method by Sizeuk, scoring 135,040.

You are getting these up fast :D Once I get a hold of my Android I’m updating it immediately and these will certainly help. Thank you :)

BTW will this version be updated to PC soon? I’m dying at the patience already. Also, does Angry Birds PC update itself or do you have to pay an extra fee for the update?

I wonder why those gold nuggets and jewels are there for…decoration, or is it there for a purpose…?

Thanks for the info. Still have a ways to go to narrow down the MaD 3-star scores.

Yes this shot, one bird solution, does work. It appears the bird has to go a little deeper between the stone pillars above the tnt to angle off to the right to hit the stalagtites. It took about 20 tries to get the aim but White bird with just a little space between itself and the base of the sling provides a good landing area. The challenge is the helmeted pig on the bottom. That one remained. Gained 10k in points.

There’s an easier way which will get a score in the 140/50’s. Aim the white bird so that you can drop the egg down into the space immediately above the tnt. This will explode most of the obstacles. Next aim the yellow bird at the bottom pice of wood supporting the extreme right structure. This will in turn fall into the gap.

I Did drop the bomb on the purple crystal, ricochet into the rightmost building’s wooden plank at base making it fall down the cliff. It made the closest structure a bit weaker.
yellow bird trough the top points of stalactites, you can break them all. Tnt didnt blast, would have been close to high score.
To finish it of, use bomb bird to blast tnt. If a stalactite wasn’t hit by yb, aim to hit it on release of bomb.

Lob the egg bird over the big structure, drop the bomb right before it hits the right-most structure. The structure should topple and destroy the right part of the big structure. Shoot yellow bird around 45 degrees at stalactites. You don’t want to sheer them off, but rather have yellow bird bounce back to the left to destroy mor structure. With a bit more luck, the TNT could have exploded here and the score could have been potentially more. Had to use the second egg bird to drop an egg near the TNT to clear up the rest. I think there is more to gain here with a two-birder and some luck. I took screen shots after bird 1 and bird 2, to show the path of the birds, will upload later.

I was successful with this approach, too. However, it didn’t matter for me if the yb sheared the stalactites or just bounced off of them. I managed to exceed 150,00 doing both. My best scored came when I got lucky and the TNT exploded with the first yb. The remaining 3 birds added 30,000. Good luck!

Thanks for that strategy @pointdexter5. Improved my score from 139k to 152k in just 4 tries.
Though I found it easier if Chuck went through the two stalactites instead of bouncing back. When the two fell there was a bigger gap for Matilda to bomb the egg and make the TNT explode.

Great strat @pointdexter5. You need good collateral damage off the 1st shot, I’ve had higher scores when I get partial destruction of the right half of the main structure. To score well you need to destroy the stone supports on the lower right of this structure by the end & it helps to start the damage with the 1st shot.

I sent the 2nd bird through all the stalactites, then the 3rd dropped the egg right of the TNT. That purple crystal can be hard to get, when I scored 164k I didn’t get it as the screenshot shows.

170280/3. revisited to see whether birdday 5 release would yield more points for this level as well. don’t know about that, but do know that i easily got three scores (167.5k, 168k and my current best of 170k) above my previous best (167400), by still playing @pointdexter5 ‘s strategy in the following variation (as i was back then):
1st) as described. low frequency, say 1 in 20. i reset if the right part (support) of the big structure is not taken out. score should be 70k+ (for my current best it was 73k then, but have had up to 76k in this run, with the big structure unaffected otherwise);
2nd) wasn’t playing for a 2 bird strategy anyway, so i was not trying to let the bird bounce back off the white stalactites, but instead was shooting it through the top of the white stalactites onto the brown ones, taking all of them down (this gives also a chance to take out the purple jewel, when still there, by the bird falling down). was playing for a 90k+ score after the 2nd (have had 96k several times during this run, also in case of the 170k score, again with the big structure unaffected otherwise). important thing is that there’s a clear path for the egg of the 3rd to set off the tnt..
3rd) high arc (belly a bit removed from the sling), dropping the egg just to the right of the tnt, setting it off. trajectory should be such that the carcass bounces back to the scene via the quarter-circular rock, potentially doing some more damage.

btw as witnessed by comments on other high (165k+) scores, nothing is lost if the 2nd bird inadvertently does bounce back off the white stalactites, as long as both of them fall down, and you’ve got a 80k+ score. then by throwing the 3rd a bit more vertically/higher, you can make the carcass bounce back off the brown stalactites, with the same scoring potential, i think. was only playing the 2nd like i do, in order for it to not mess up the main structure, giving a more repeatable 3rd shot.

Pointdexter5. Thanks for the strat. I’ll try it next in play. To mock a mockingbird might be able to help.

I might be chasing a ghost, but I am convinced that there is a one bird high score waiting for ‘the lucky one.’ My strat is slightly different from yours in this way: white bird over first structure, release aiming ‘the head’ at the lower third of the 3rd stalactite. Depending on your arc angle, right side damage to left structure by the egg bomb will clear a path for ‘the head’ to come back and break the side or floorboard of the TNT box and detonate it. When ‘THE HEAD'(now elevated to warrior status) hits the lower third of #3 stalactite, it should roll upwards and arc back to the left (while egg bomb destruction takes place to clear area). ‘THE HEAD’ must not touch #2 Stalactite on it’s arc back to the TNT. It’s a very low % shot.
If you miss, try yellow bird into the lower third of the 1st stalactite. It can bounce back and down to set off the TNT. That”s how I got 158370. HAPPY HUNTING!

At first I thought it would be simple.

Following @pointdexter5 strategy I got two 165k scores in one hour, each time with a crystal left (one with a two birder, and one with a 3 birder).

As it turned out, it took several days to best the top score… and still with a crystal left :-/

Anyway, this is the first bird trajectory.

Note the slightly reduced speed to come lower on the right tower.

Then the second bird after a good destruction with the first one.

And this is the trajectory and results after the third bird.

The highscore screenshot, of course ;-)

Considering the result I wouldn’t be surprised with 170k+ scores at some point on this level.

@bonneypattycat might be another level worth another try

I followed @pointdexter5 strat and ended up with a nice top score of 171910. The only difference is that I launched the YB so as to take out all three stalactites clearing the way for the WB to maximise damage.

Here the screenshot

@angry-birds-addict I played another 2 hours, adding 5k to my score. I’m not sure, but I think that brick supporting the right side of the structure is breaking more easily. That, and perhaps my fling skills have modestly improved ;) I will add this level to the list as a “possible”.

I only played for a short time, but I do not see any significant change to the level, so will not add it to the list at this time. When I have more time, I will try again.
