Angry Birds Mine and Dine 3 Star Walkthrough Level 16-4

Mine and Dine level 16-4 is quite challenging. Our strategy is to lob the first Black bird into the gap between the two towers on the left. The resulting explosion will push the towers outward and hopefully cause a lot of damage. Arc the next Black bird into bottom-left triangle of the top tower to cause it to topple leftward. Note that passing the level with only 2 birds does not guarantee 3 stars. More important is the destruction. The score in the video below is 112,310.

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.

2 days… Can’t get 3 stars. Personally, this has been the second hardest level of any AB game. (second only to the Halloween level with the slanted towers… Took a month to get 3 stars!)

I love that the level is hard, but I hate it at the same time.

I’m so addicted to AB that it worries me sometimes! To repeat the sentiment posted by others, I really do appreciate this site. With the helpful walkthroughs, comments, and leader boards (with average scores), this is Hands DOWN, best AB site on the web!

Keep up the good work! … It’s much appreciated.

I know what you are all saying. Seem to gravitate back to the nest here. I have had problems with this level too.
I have been doing this the same way as the video, Then I realized the difference between getting a so-so score and and pretty good one, was how much rubble falls off the low rock in the middle. If it doesn`t fall you can get anywhere from 85,000-103,00. So I kept replaying until the rocks fell better in the middle. Just based on the first blast. I now have 111,700, and I know I can do better, But it seems to be the placement of the first bomb.

Thanks, birdsnest, this is a great place to come. You know what they say,”Birds of the feather, flock together.”

Thank you everyone. We put a lot of time into keeping this site up, so it’s nice to know that it’s a useful (and fun) tool. I’m hoping to throw in some new features soon that may make it even better. Stay tuned!

119950… Easier method.

Bird 1: shoot straght into edge of horizontal stone plank located above the first pig… The big pig in the big miners helmet. It will break through and fall/nestle right next to the big pig. Let it explode and you can do massive damage, yielding 80k easily. For this particular score, it destroyed everything except for the rightmost pig in the high stone tower and I had 92k after this 1st bird! (using the other method I was lucky to reach 90k after all three birds!!!). It only took a 4 or 5 attempts before I got it to destroy all but one pig, so it’s not a rare, or hard to achieve result.

Bird 2: take out right tower like in the video.

Bird 3: 10000 points

Note: 130,000 should be achievable using this method. I messed up because I was so excited after the first bird, I hit the screen by accident, and wasted the second bird. So this score is with bird 2 causing NO damage and using bird 3 for the tower (thus I didn’t get the 10000 bonus).

Ok. 122,090.

I did it right this time… But it took like 30 more tries.
92k after first bird. The key is to get the first bird no settle low, either taking the big pig’s place or settling to the right of it… Allowing it to blow up more of the foundation.
2nd bird took out right tower for (I guess) 112090.
+ 10000 for not using 3rd bird.

I’ve probably flung bomb bird over 100x’s and even though only 10% of the time the structure collapsed, the score would be a measly 65K at best. Had to use all three birds to get my current score and 3 stars. I’ll be back to try @loox‘s method again when I’m not so frustrated nd try to make at LEAST the average score! Grrrrrr!!!

I feel absolutely incapable of doing that much damage in the first prescribed shot. My blocks just don’t fall. Very frustrating. My goal at this point is just to get up to an “average” score.

Took me couple of days to go over average. Tried loox strat, but never reached anything near. Then I went back to the video strat causing a bit more debris on second shot.

118270 on fourth try.

It was not difficult to get the high score. What has been hard is to duplicate it.

Dropped the first bomb on top of the left side of the thick horizontal concrete bar of the second structure rather than down between the first and second structure. This caused the concrete blocks to fly to the right, hitting the far right structure, which then collapsed to the left. Second bomb dropped at the base of the first structure. White bird remaining.

By wanda

118130 using this method. When the first bomb bird exploded, just enough debris flew to the right and caused the right structure to collapse. I’m not even trying to duplicate it:). Thanks for the suggestion.

127160 using 2 birds and A LOT OF LUCK. First one like in the movie above, but it also put down the tower to far right, one pig left (the large pig to far left under the concrete) 2. bird blow up the last pig and a lot of materials around. + 10 000 for the last bird. Think I have tried this level 100 times before getting this score. =)

Wow, this one took me forever. Definitely one of the harder levels to get three stars in.

I tried loox’s strategy above but could never get more than 50,000 points with my first bird, not nearly enough to get three stars. I finally got it using the same strategy as the video.

I found that the amount of destruction you get with your first bird depends a lot on exactly how it falls. If you go slightly too far to the right and take out both concrete blocks just to the top right of the little pig in the gap, then the right tower will not fall (I guess because the two wood blocks left over just blow up and don’t put enough force on the right tower–whereas if those two concrete blocks are there, they blast to the right and knock down the tower). If you go slightly too far to the left, and the pig doesn’t pop right away, he buffers the explosion, and again the right tower won’t fall. The best situation is if you can get right in the center and pop the little pig before exploding, so you get the optimum blast on both towers. At least, that seemed to get me the most points on a consistent basis. There’s a lot of luck involved on this level.

After trying every strat and every other thing I could think of, this level was driving me bonkers! Ben had the right of it and I finally got over avg! Wish I could have made loox’s strat work but that silly big pig rarely popped! Good luck to any who have to do or come back to this one! Def on my not fav list! LOL

117,600 with one bird.

Send the first bomb on a very high arc, causing it to land in the little “nook” in the first structure holding a small, spot-light-helmeted pig leaning against a wood piece.

Get the bomb in there, and detonate it. This should send pieces flying in all directions and with a bit of good luck, a concrete block into the wooden structure holding the highest pig, causing him to fall as well.

1. Bomb bird arcs (barely touches base of sling) so it hits the right corner of the left most top glass block, breaks its, and lands on the vertical glass block underneath and then the bird and block tip over to the right and bird lands next to the wood vertical block (to its right under the shovel) then explodes. The goal is to get the horizontal stone plank with the shovel in it to go up and hit the far right stone column. This can also be done with a straight line shot of BB coming to rest on the vertical wood column underneath the shovel.
2. Bomb bird land next to the bottom left pig.
3. White bird = bonus
Gained 2k in points.

@wrw01 a huge thank you for this idea, also to @vuelva for his screenshots & detail included with them. I prefer to use the straight ahead shot you mention towards the plank with the shovel attached. I found I could clip the top ice block on the left, which slows the bomb down & tips it towards that plank, or send the bomb very low over the ice on the left to rest on the horizontal stone block beneath the plank. Both methods can produce the same result – enough of an explosion to send debris over to the right tower & knock it down. Sometimes it wasn’t specifically the plank with the shovel, but just the general shower of debris that got it done. My higher scores came when I had 85k+ after the 1st shot.
I used to mock a mockingbirds’s 2nd shot of a lob to the right of the remaining front pig. I had more trouble getting that shot to work, but when it did I got better destruction than just sending the bomb straight to the pig.
Gained 13k in points & am no longer below average, so thank you both :)

136k with two birds.
1st: http://angrybir.de/1886WkE
2nd: http://angrybir.de/1888A5B
final score: http://angrybir.de/1caj8OV

For the 1st, i was following the idea of the 1st bird of
theater333,
combined with that of sending a helmet into one of the crevices of the right tower to destabilise it (cf. item 3 in my first comment on Angry Birds Free Level 7-3). For the 2nd, i noted that the destruction of the 2nd bird of the theater333 video was quite minimal (17k) and that more (20k-30k) could be had by using (almost) the same trajectory as for the 1st (given the right placement of the helmet).

Still, the 1st shot in the theater333 video is amazing and i’ve not been able to replicate it (that is, to take also the right part of the tower down, by letting the horizontal stone plank with the shovel in it bump into that part, as reported in the comment of @wrw01 above), whence my adaptation to employ the helmet instead to take the tower down completely.

Scoring 125k+ is not too difficult using this strategy, but getting 130k+ took a lot of effort (this was my first successful attempt, but a quite successful one at that, so will not play the level again). i’m curious as to how other 130k+ scores have been achieved (the top scorer has already reported her strategy above, but i could not get that to work, however hard i tried).

113,090 with this method.

One tip that helped for me was to try to break each crystal.
What I did was aim the first Bomb through the flag and onto the big boulder at the left of the level. This should get rid of most of the first structure. (Note: you may not destroy the purple crystal at the extreme left of the level).
Get the second Bomb as close as you can to the second crystal and detonate. The second structure should collapse, ideally breaking the purple crystal in the crevice. It helps to be around 85 or 90K at this point (or 100K if all pigs have popped, obviously).
If the Corporal Pig is still intact, aim Matilda so that her egg breaks as much as it can in the crevice, and so that she hits near the bottom of his tower. He should topple into the crevice and break more stone.

It took me a few tries to perfect this strategy, and it still may not work 100% of the time. It’s not so good if you’re competing for the top spot in the leaderboard, but it can help you get 3 stars.
