The backward Boomerang shot can be a very affective shot when it hits right but I find it difficult to control and repeat..

On this level I like to just shoot the Boomerang bird just straight on just over the left side platform.. A well placed shot will smash into the wood planks under the 2 upright wood blocks holding the bolder. The goal of this 1st bird shot is to weaken the structure and at the same time getting the bolder to fall and roll to the left, hitting the left platform which will open up a nice hole to finish the kill with the 2nd bird.. My best here using this method is 57,530..

You can also try to have the green bird make a low arc, turning back so that it cuts through the legs of the chair with the leftmost pig. This causes the stone brick to fall down on the bigger pig and the tower above leans to the right and, with some luck, collapses.
Then use the first red bird straight onto the first tower with the last pig. One bird left, usually more than 50.000 points.

While playing 9-9 Challenge yesterday when I noticed this is the only BigSetup level where I was below average, so I stared flinging, without watching videos as they rarely load anyway when I’m home, poor internet).

I tried starting by taking out the front, either head on or reverse, but no luck. I then tried flinging to the far right pig on chair (there’s no pig on a chair on the left side) & got very lucky as it worked the 1st time. This cleared all but a very small wood block & the pig’s hat. The middle tower leaned slightly to the right, but never collapsed. Only the left pig remained. 2nd bird almost straight ahead for a 2-birder of 53480 (my iPad not Android phone).

Before posting, I read these posts & it seems @benitas discovered this strategy years ago. It still works for an above average score, as does @e-star whose strategy I used today for 54450.

I used the backwards Boomerang, but slightly higher. Terence had more luck a made more damage, resulting in score of 56820.

Here is my video, enjoy!

Thank you @e-star and slim – I struggled with this level and couldn’t even get the average score. But big kudos to you for getting me on my way!

Thanks @e-star, just like your video with a bit more destruction. I found it easier to find the sweet spot for the 2nd shot if the boomer had done a bit of damage first.

I’m curious where all the points came from for the top few scores, as @vuelva mentions below. My 60k score left behind 5 pieces of wood, a tiny piece of stone, & the boulder.
I don’t see a 1-birder here, so did they manage to destroy the boulder? I’ve only damaged it, but it would be worth some extra points.

Used AMslimfordy video for ABN as the basic strategy. Implemented E-Star’s tip. Gained 5k+ in score. Teamwork at ABN. Its great.

Just shoot the boomerang bird right into the horizontal board to the left of the left-hand pig. It wipes out the whole side much better than the trick shot. Then proceed as in the video. 47,405, but could have done better, used 3 birds.

By Stuzie

I just got 53,810 using 3 birds. I used the backwards green bird trick, but I aimed hight (for the part just under the boulder). Then I used both big birds and just kept smashing the main structure.

I played this just like in E-Star’s video – Thanks E-Star – except I fired the Boomerang Bird slightly lower. It took out everything on the left side & left the hardhat on the ground. Second shot, the BB took out nearly everything else,then bounced over to far right side and landed on debris outside of structure. Good for 61,010.

played this one a long time ago (beginning of 2012) and can’t remember exactly
how i obtained my current score of 61,680.
what i do remember is that i was flinging the boomerang bird like everyone else,
reverse to take out the complete left side, and that after my last bird (cannot even remember
whether it was with 2 or 3…) i was amazed to see that there was total destruction,
literally total, nothing was left…

Undoubtedly your score was a 2 bird score. Near total or total destruction will produce low 50k scores. I believe my best 3 bird score was about 53k.
Thanks for posting, as I revisited and improved my score as well.

I’ve been replaying this level,trying to improve my score. This time,instead of reversing the boomerang bird,I just shot it straight at the horizontal wood plank next to the little helmeted-pig on the left side.This was good for nearly 12,000 points. Next,I fired the first Terence thru the vertical piece of wood,taking out the center of the structure & everything on the right side.The boulder on top dropped straight down,taking out the large pig. This left one Terence unused, & was good for 62,730 points.

I am going to have to give the RRS a shot on this one, So far I have 54k with a different approach than I have seen listed above.

First shot nearly vertical with green bird, tip of beak should just barely peek past the base of the slingshot at launch. Reverse on way down to hit the right side of the stone blocks on the left mini tower. Bird should ricochet back and break several pieces of main structure and weaken the rest.

Second bird through the weakened area to destroy most all the debris and take out remaining pigs. Consistently scores over 50k.

it has been quite a while since i had looked at this level, but still am surprised to find 4 people handsomely beating the then top score of meanguy. there some way seems to be 5k extra in it?? did something change in this level or in the big setup in general as you know of @dollarbill2208? (asking you, since your score has increased overall a lot in this episode, even with lots of room for improvement on several levels; or is this just due to a change in platform (you seem to have disappeared from game center?) or something else?). am looking into old levels because of the many unexpected changes in the 4.0.0 version.

Yeah that’s a very good observation from you @vuelva. I don’t see anything here as of the previous update. ( haven’t upgraded to 4.0 yet.). It must be the new upgrade to make that much of a difference in scores. Too bad the dates of the entries aren’t visible .. Nice catch.

@appleaj could you please upload a screendump to verify your score? Beside that would you give us the followed strat?
In my opinion this isn’t possible. A new player, less experience and then a highscore? It’s possible, but I have doubts.

@bernersenn he posted on the Challenge page –

@appleaj can you provide a bit more detail on the strategy you used? Your description makes it sound like a 1-birder, was that how it happened? Thanks.

@karen68 Indeed it was a one-birder. I actually did it by accident! I was sick of the level, so I was flinging birds randomly, and I got the shot. Very hard to repeat.

As the related posts have been removed from the Challenge page, why don’t you re-post your screenshot and strategy to this page @appleaj? Remember to notice @Kelani in the post and perhaps even though it’s now a day later, seeing as you’re relatively new to the Nest, that still might be favorably considered as having fulfilled the requirements for the Underdog Badge?

Sorry about earlier, here’s the link:
I really want that badge, so here’s what I did:
Shot Hal at a low arc over the stones into the wood, shooting blocks out, destroying the outside structures, leaving only a few blocks.
