What a stupid, annoying level.

Okay, now that I have that off my chest, let me actually contribute a strategy for 100k. You’ll have much, much more success with the first bird by splitting early-ish to hit all three glass panels. I never popped the middle pig this way, but it usually gives very good destruction from the structure on the right, as a number of pieces fall off the edge and the wrench is sometimes taken out. Then boomerang the second bird to take out the middle pig and at least one of the supports of the left structure, hopefully getting the wrench in the process. Finally, smash the remaining structure with the third bird more or less as the video’s second bird demonstrates.

When I got 100k, I got terrific destruction on the second and third shots, but there’s room for quite a bit more on the first shot (I missed the wrench and some wood). Because of the boomerangs, it’s a somewhat difficult strategy, but I can assure you that it’s more rewarding and less agonizing than the walkthrough method. At any rate, I don’t plan to play this level ever again. Yuck.

@austinrhl I cracked up when yours was the first comment I read when I came to this walkthrough looking for a high score strat. Thanks for the laugh! I think your 3 bird approach is the best, though it is difficult when you are dependent on 2 boomerang bird shots. Some comments about all three shots.

For the first shot, I split the bird when it was over the top left vertical piece of ice. If you can get the 3 square stones at the top right to fall to the right, you get more destruction points, plus those stones don’t seem to do much good if they fall to the left. A good shot that gets the wrench on the right will rack up points in rhe mid to high 30k’s.

The second shot is the most difficult as the cart shifts unpredictably after the first shot. I launch the bird in a high arc, starting out with the tip of its beak near but not touching the slingshot stand, and then pray that I reverse it at a good point to get the middle pig and wrench plus a lot of the wood support structure. I usually don’t get the wrench.

The third shot is flatter than the second but still high enough to get pretty far out before reversing.

On my best score so far of 99k, I had a lot of destruction but missed the left 2 wrenches, so for anyone willing to do a lot of wash-rinse-repeat, scores over 100k are definitely possible.

Thank you @hallieginsb for the post on your strategy. Used the first two shots with some minor adjustments:
1. Split the Blue Bird like you mentioned with the lower BB taking out the top left glass vertical post on the left structure and the top two Blue Birds flying over and taking out the bottom two vertical glass posts on the right structure.
2. Launch Boomerang Bird in a high arc and activate it so it cuts through the pig, glass, wood and structure above the sand bag. I had the BB’s beak touch the base of the sling. I focused on where I wanted the BB to land and drew an imaginary line to the flying BB and when the angle was correct, activated it. What I am trying to express is that it was easier to look at the landing point rather than the flight of the BB.
3. Did a Reverse Remi with the second Boomerang Bird to take out the remaining left pig and it flew into the right structure destroying debris and the wrench. This bird enabled the points to keep mounting from the debris fall of the right structure.

was playing for the same first, but both boomerang birds reverse just above the leftmost (vertical) stone brick. last bird bonus. got 101k on the first attempt after getting into the high 30k’s with the 1st (though had practised the 2nd and 3rd while playing a different strategy for the1st).

1st bird (blue): Over the left tower and split so that the birdlets hit all 3 glass panes, as described by @austinrhl above.
2nd bird (green): More or less the same as in video. It is so hard to control the angle of Al’s trajectory, thus the high difficulty. My estimation would be release at about 70 degree, activate when he is above the supporting pole of the right tower. I think I actually hit directly onto the pig in the left edge of the ditch (i.e. slightly lower than in the video).
3rd bird (green): The problem is, the pig in the contraption won’t succumb most of the time. So I shot Al directly at the pig to finish. Caught on some straggle.
4th bird (yellow): 10k. (Dang!)

Score: 90,550, just enough for 3-star, but I’m not complaining. (Can I, anyway?!)

PS: Am I the only one who linked this level to the so-called “date of apocalypse”, 21 Dec?

If you’re like me and can’t stand the boomerang bird you can loft him straight ahead like a missle and still get 3 stars as long as you get the top pig killed with the blue birds plus the right side cleared. I agree with you both it’s a horrible level. My strategy was to split the blue birds early so that the birds take out the top pig and carry on to clearing the right side plus pig in the middle from the fallen debris. Then I just flung the boomerang bird straight ahead making sure he goes through the wood and he happened to land on the final pig at the bottom of the left pile.

Found out something useful concerning first (blue) bird. Don’t loft it OVER the glass top tower on left as per video -go THROUGH it! Split before reaching the tower- if at the right angle-it is a shot with very little angle on it- the top bird of the split will go through the tower, and dive down into the bottom right tower taking out the small pig, the tower then crashes down taking out the rest of the tower pigs and crushing the pig in the blue case attached to the balloon. Relatively easy to get right and works an estimated 80% of the time (on a PC at least). As for the second shot-sorry you are on your own with that one !! Best of luck.(91100 with 3 birds-and grateful!)
Consolation-the levels after this, while no picnic, are not as frustrating-have managed to 3* them all in a quite short time compared to this one.

Similar to bullets0000, except instead of shooting Boomerang Bird ahead use 1 or 2 ‘Reverse Remy’s’ to do the trick. Highest so far was with 2 for 94k+

I spent hours at 89,450 and was determined to 3-star this before moved on or went blind. I really hate the boomerang birds. Hate probably isn’t a strong enough word.

What finally worked for me was using @dg47 idea of shooting through the ice box to then take down the right side. My second shot employed the Reverse Remy from @jshfire and that took care of the remaining pigs. Reading this now it looks so easy – it is not. I really hate this level. It has a hidden evilness to it that you only find out about after you start it. I won’t be back.

I like to use 3 Birds on this level. I use the 2nd bird, 1st boomerang bird, for cleanup debris for extra points.

1st blue bird is fired low over the leftmost structure and split above it so as to take out the top level with the single lower split bird. That leaves the 2 other birds to take down the far right structure..

2nd bird is shot straight ahead low over the cleared top level from the previous bird. A good shot can cleanup a lot of debris and hopefully get the golden wench for the 3k bonus.. A good score after this shot can get you between 50 and 60k.
The 3rd bird is shot the same as the 2nd bird in the video.

The goal here is to get at least 2 of the 3 golden wrenches. I don’t think I ever got all 3. Frustrating level, Good Luck.

@pjdambra, this strat works, it needs a lot of experiene – read retries – to have the debris fall to the right. I got my score with 2 birds, stll there was a lot of debris left as the left golden wrench. Especially forvthis level: patience and persistance. I am doing this level now for more than three days and score is going up, slowly.

So here’s what I did:
Split the blue bird early to take out the top left pig with the bottom bird and let the other two crash into the right-hand tower.
Threw the second bird just over the right-hand tower and took out the remains of the left.
Threw the third bird like the video to complete the level.

Good Luck!!!

I had been really stuck on levels 5, 9, and this level. I finally 3 starred 5 by repeated fling and pray, having given up on any reported strategies which weren’t working. Then I finally completed level 9, not by fling and pray but just repeating what was resulting in me inching closer to the 3* minimum. But this level is just extremely annoying in that it seems very few of the successful shots are repeatable. I’ve quit trying to boomerang the orange bird and just use him to plow through structures. I can repeatedly take out the right 3 glass panels, but unlike the first poster, it does not result in significant damage and the stone blocks always fall left. I have not yet seen the rightmost gold wrench destroyed by this method. For those who continue to play trying to increase your high score; I do not know whether to praise you or call you crazy, because as soon as I 3* this level I will NEVER play it again. Even if my score is 90,010.

Self destruction here as well! While I was getting myself a drink the right side had collapsed! That popped all pigs on the right side,the middle pig and the yellow wrench on the right! This could be very beneficial if you manage proper shot with blue bird after the right side has collapsed which I couldn’t do!

@communistpride Thanks for the report. Did you know that there is a forum on self-destroying and unstable levels?
There are quite a few levels in ABO BPgs already on the list, but not this one.
It helps if you report self-destruction in the forum, because I only see reports on the walkthroughs by chance.
If have / can get more data, that is also useful. Like to list number of points with no bird flung, frequency of occurrence, and length of time to happen (you obviously didn’t get the last one).

Well, enough of this for today. I have seen to right tower fall for 16 to 22K, without getting the yellow wrench on the right. Have not, however, been able to improve my score, with or without the collapse. I’ve been trying the strat by AustinRHL and following, but can’t get the second green bird to cooperate.

Details for Nook Color:

First shot with blue bird is a high arc that comes down over the balloon. Time the split so that the right bird of the trio breaks through the glass (ice floats in water) and takes out the little pig. Most times if you can accomplish this, then all of the pigs on the right are gone.

Second shot a reverse Remi. Start with the slingshot very slightly elevated above horizontal. Release and reverse the bird immediately. He should reverse underneath the slingshot fork and impact the left structure just above the vertical stone block.

If necessary, repeat the exact same reverse Remi to kill remaining pig and get more destruction.

Zoom all of the way in for the first shot and find a background landmark to line up with once you find the angle that works for you. GOOD LUCK!

Fired BB almost flat, Split straight away, top bird went through the top piece of LH stucture and the took out bottom pig on RH stucture.
With luck the falling RH structure takes out piggie in the middle.
Then reverse swing the Green to hit just above the concrete blocks on LH structure. 20K bonus. best is 97K+ so far. regular 94+.
Happy flinging.

Trying to 3* this level felt like trying to write an essay for a teacher with much too high expectations. Finally got my score (after several very annoying 89 700s) using the 3 bird start described at the start, but found the tower collapsed and got wrenches much more consistently if I split the blue bird early and flung him through the top glass boxy bit on the first tower and took out the bottom bird on the second tower. With this several times caused a lot of destruction, even getting 2 wrenches with it. Could never get the boomerang bird right on the second shot after that one though. Phew, what an effort!

Pushing not breaking. That’s the trick for this level.

Indeed, the idea is to use the first bird to push the rightmost structure over the right edge instead of breaking the bottom vertical glass which makes the right structure topple to the left without much destruction and a lot of partially damaged debris.
BTW, it is also easier to get the rightmost gold wrench that way ;-)

Specifically, the split is timed so that the bottom bird hits the bottom horizontal wood plank, while the top bird hits the top horizontal wood plank.

Here is the trajectory:

At this point the score can be as high as 40k, and around 45k if the middle pig is killed in the process which can happen once in a while.
This is the result after a good first shot:

After that, the two next birds are used first to destroy the two supporting poles, and then using a reverse shot, to push the left structure in the created gap.

Here is the second shot, which is like in the video but aimed lower to get a better angle of penetration:

And this is the resulting damages for my highest score after the third bird:

To finish, this is the highscore screenshot:

Hope it helps.

Interestingly, if you’re only trying to get 3 stars, the blue bird is redundant. One Reverse Remi, aiming just above horizontal, can take out the left hand piggies. It should just pass above the stone block. A second Reverse Remi, slightly higher will take out some debris plus the pig on the cart. And the yellow bird can take out the right tower easily. These shots are much more repeatable than some of the ones above. They probably won’t get you a high score, but they might save you days of pain.

Of course you may as well use the blue bird to clear out some or all of the right side and then use one or two Reverse Remis as described above to finish things off.
