Angry Birds Mine and Dine 3 Star Walkthrough Level 17-12

Our strategy for Mine and Dine level 17-12 is to fire the Red bird into the vertical pile of stone towards the right side of the level. This will cause wood to topple onto the TNT, clearing the right side. It is a tough trajectory to go below the stalactite and above the roof of the second structure, but it is possible. With a similar trajectory, bomb the right side of the left structure and ricochet the White bird into the stalactites above the second structure. If necessary, use a Yellow bird to clean up. The score in the video below is 101,790.

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.

First, I sent the red bird high up so that on its way down, it collided with the purple crystal and the two icicles. The icicles would come down and destroy the pigs in the middle section. The leaning debris that results from the icicle destruction luckily caused all the pigs in the left side to die as well. Then, as a sort of accident, I sort of rammed the white egg bird into the concrete before the rightmost pigs. Everything somehow fell over and got me an epic score. An overall satisfying and lucky experience.

This is the same method I’ve been putting through a little trial and error, although I haven’t gotten a final score (flubbed my second shot), i have gotten a similar first shot; once resulting in the stone ‘chimney’ to topple to the left. Thanks for the post! Let’s me know I’m on the right track!

I had the hardest time passing this level, it’s this and 17-7 (which I still can’t 3-star). Finally I just got angry and started throwing birds around, ignoring the strategy in the walkthrough and not trying to complete the level. I don’t even know what the heck I did, but before I knew it all the pigs were down, and my last bird was sitting on top of the amethyst, with a stone brick on his head. At the last second, my bird popped and the brick fell on the amethyst, and suddenly I had completed the level with 3 stars!!!

I really don’t like this level although I think my strategy is sound. First red as explained above, over the top taking out crystal and the dark stalactite, although doesn’t matter if it takes out the left structure or not. Second shot with the white bird, you need to release the egg in a way that shoots the bird up brushing the bottom of the left s’tite and carries on to dislodge the one on the right too. You need comfortably over 60k at this point for a decent score. Finally use the yellow bird to push what’s left of the right structure onto the TNT and hope for a good fall out. I’m pretty sure this strategy is better than my score would suggest but life’s too short to keep trying!

This strategy gives a lot of 3 stars easiers than other methods.
If you’re looking for that top10 spot you’ll want the other 2bird method but also some time for triall and error.

This level is similar to 17-7, in that it requires a great deal of small scale precision to make your shots. It’s the sort of thing that just gets under your skin, or gives you that feeling you get when someone scratches a chalkboard with their fingernails. All the ways to line up and take your shots that one comes to rely on in other levels, are very muted and subdued here, adding to the difficulty.

What a nice try!! First bird no lob. Direct shot into the 2 small vertical pieces of the chimney. The small pieces plus the bird made the right structure collapse. Cleared ot the entire right side. Then w/b shot just under the first stalactite dropping the egg
on the right corner of the left structure. W/b went upwards, breaking the 2 black stalactites, even the purpel cristal on top. W/b and stalactites fell downwards taking out all pigs and causing a lot of debris.

This level was a challenge. Used emider’s alternate strategy to obtain a respectable score. The second White Bird shot seems to be the key in obtaining the higher scores in hitting the stalactites and crystals. The only other tip I can offer is patience and to keep trying.

The key to this level is definately patience but be sure to have the trajectory for your white bird figured out so you don’t choke when you get good fallout from your first bird.

@emider, I was trying to replicate your strategy but I accidentally clipped the first stalactite, and my bird just hit the roof of the middle structure. Killed the pig on the bottom when it rolled of the roof. I then shot the white bird just a bit higher and activated the egg, just as I was located between the two stalactites. The rightmost stalactite actually went horizontal and together with the bird pushed over the cement wall, causing the complete right structure to explode. Unfortunately, the left structure was still somewhat intact and I had to waste a bird to kill the remaining pigs. Ended up with 113k, but 120+ would have been possible. Will keep trying as it seems like another way to get a similar result.

Not sure what I think about the current high here, just hard to imagine another 10K to be gotten here. It’s the user’s only high in M&D. Opinions? What do you think @amslimfordy ?

Okay, wow, I guess I spoke too soon. Just got a +130k score, no PUs obviously. S I guess this should be considered an alternate strategy. I skipped the red bird of the bottom of the first stalactite. This time, the first tower fell to the right, some pieces to the left, and somehow dislodged the middle tower and the whole thing collapsed. I then send the white bird on a path just a tad higher, activate the egg right as I was. In the middle of the stalactites. Bird and stalactite pushed over the wall against the right-most structure, score just kept flowing well over 110k and had two birds leftover. There is more to destroy here, so I think there could be more to get here.

I took a screen shot right after the second bird did its magic, so I can upload this if anybody in interested in seeing how much was left.

@pointdexter5 – Thanks! That really is an amazing result. Your second shot is very interesting, and extremely well executed under pressure. I really don’t think there’s anything more to gain here. Those stuck-together wooden elements just don’t break when they fall. And you even managed to destroy one of the boulders! This is definitely one of the most spectacular top scores I’ve seen.

@austinrhl, what is funny about this, is that I did not think 130k or more was possible. Could not see it based on and previews tries. But what happened one the first bird must have been one of those exception shots we sometimes see. I was getting ready to line up bird two and stuff kept falling down and points racking up. I was really worried about bird two at this point, as it woud have been very easy to mess up. I just happened to hit it perfectly, and the rest is history.

I used to hold the top spot in M&D for over half a year, but was pushed down as I focused on other episodes. This score pushed me back in the top 5 in his episode, so going to keep paying to gain some more points.

By emider (@emider)Score: 123,950

@pointdexter5, congratulations! Your score seems unbeatable. I realized that the left and middle structure start “hopping” a bit after contact with stalactite(s)on rare occasions. Thats when they will collapse decently. Second shot has to break all three stalactites for high scores, just like you described. Chapeau!

Thank you @emider!

Something strange happened on my 117k attempt. On the first bird, I did not manage to completely clear the right side, but the TNT did blow and the shelf remained. I went ahead with the second bird, as sometimes with that shot flying debris can knock out the shelf, and that is exactly what happened. What was strange, there was an explosion around the shelf, almost like a fourth TNT had been set off. I’m quite certain all the TNT was set off by the first bird.

I believe he meant the red bird barely grazes the bottom of the stalactite, which causes the stalactite to fall, but the red bird continues to sail to the right hitting the second building.

You missed my nickname, but luckily I’m subscribed to this thread. Yes, you have to slightly touch it, enough to break it, but not disrupt the path of the bird. When you pull the bird back, try to use visual pointers on the screen to find the right angle on your device.
