Our strategy for Angry Birds Birdday Party (Birthday Party) level 19-9 is to send a Yellow bird through the plank in the top-right corner, making sure to pop the pig below. Use the Pink bird to lift the hammer on the left side, detonating both TNT and destroying all bystanders. The score in the video below is 115,830.
1st bird straight through balloon and into tower, debris sets off TNT by tower, debris from that blast sets off TNT on ice (sometimes). 2nd bird through balloon pig, detonate next to hanging boulder. Boulder floats up, breaks board and then falls to take out last pig.
If the TNT at base of the tower is hit just right all explodes to the right, leaving the the hammer to the ice to be finished with the second bird, I’m pretty impressed that you deviated from the obvious move for more points.
125k, same as video, but with a slight tweak: launch first bird just barely over the tower and accelerate almost horizontally at the top surface of the plank with the cake. The problem with the shot in the video is that the bird often falls first and gets in the way of the boulder. With this tweak the boulder should fall first and cause more destruction.
nice tweak @f91jsw ! Got me an extra couple of thousand!
Yep, confirmed. You need around 33-35K after first shot in order to get decent scores.
that’s indeed a useful tweak. another tweak one might add to it is to try to take out both balloons. this in order for the hat of the bird to fall to the right (instead of bumping into the 2nd balloon), so as to increase the chance of the bird landing in the vicinity of that hat (or the one of the pig on the balloon or both) causing the bird to spin and take out lots of stuff (40k is possible; it may even push over the tower).
this gives 125k scores fairly quickly with the (funny) second shot as in the video.
to get higher scores one may note that in the video (and also in the picture of @bonneypattycat) the middle two bricks are still there and it’s hard to destroy them by such a second shot. to overcome this and get (a few) more points, i used a different 2nd shot, making the pink bird cut through the rope of the small boulder. this will set of the tnt and make the tower collapse as usual but if you do it right (just above the boulder, not too low, not too high) will also make the pink bird airlift the two bricks and a wooden triangle (but not the tnt or bricks from the tower) which then drift to the left, and if you’re lucky set of the left tnt when they are dropped onto (to the left of) the hammer/left structure. setting of the tnt is not so frequent but anyway, it got me 128,290 and i think the method has the potential for 135k.
as an aside, i think once the tnt in the middle tower gave a big blast when exploding much like in level 19-11 (but i might have imagined it; i was not looking to that part of the screen but suddenly stuff was flying far away, over the rock to the right). anyway, as it was my second bird it didn’t bring much since the crucial structures to hit then (the glass below ground level; the tower should be destroyed anyway) were not affected. still, if (and that’s a big if) that’s indeed the case one might be playing for it by trying to hit it with the first bird…
I had good luck with getting pink bird to lift up and left and just gained 5k on my score. Just took about 30 tries! Thank you @vuelva.
Thank you both @f91jsw and vuelva for the posts on the tweaks for the Yellow Bird. Trajectory close to the top and hitting both balloons added a number of points. Tried to complete vuelva second shot hitting under the pink balloon but could not get the tnt to activate. Everything else worked great. Very close to completion a number of times except for activation. Great observation.
Also noticed the massive explosion relating to the tower’s tnt but the follow-up shots did not work due to debris distribution. Definitely a 1-bird solution possibility.
Used YB like you said, works like a charm. However, with the wrong point of acceleration, the bird does fall with the boulder and gets in it’s way. Still, used YB perfectly and got the cake and some glasses below. pink bird to the left to pick up that “hammer” and BOOM. Level cleared.
I used your advice@f91jsw – 7k increase in my score so thank you! Now going to try for more.
I know it won’t last long…
One shoot, 122570pts. Shoot the yellow bird near horizontally. It must hit triangle stone then bird goes up and falls on right TNT. If you are lucky explosion will throw tower to right destroying all here and some debris will go left destroying other TNT.
Like the video – more or less – just many, many attempts until everything fell the correct way.
Whoo hoo i Love that hammer action how creative:) not great scoring but it looks fun..hee hee
@Kimmiecv you here yet..i brought us some Big Birds :)
Hahaa @Kathy I only just got my 3*s! Now on to the real work!! This one is a trip! I’m miffed! I had a beautiful explosion on my first bird and totally blew the second!! Ooh so not a happy camper right now!! The score would have been amazing! :( Ah well I’m used to it!! LOL Good thinking on the Big Birds!! ;D
@Kathy I Love the hammer action!! I got my score like the video, hahaa just kept hammering away at it!! LOL But I’m ready to move on!! See ya next door ;D
@kimmiecv I totally agree, that hammer action is really great. Fun level, isn’t it?
Yep @cosmo2503 I was liking it a lot!! You have to wonder about the mind that came up with it though!! LOL To many days/nights stuck in an underground fully cemented room…..hmmmm or have I seen to many movies about geeks and I’m way off course!! Hahahaa ;D
@Kimmiecv I’m back!!! Done with space for now::)
Congrats @Kathy on your great score with the glitch and welcome back!! :D
I have a one birder here.
In fact I was looking for the big explosion aiming at the rope between the balloon and the rock when everything exploded.
Here is the result: http://angrybir.de/16Xit0y
After some retries, the good strategy seems to try to snuff the candle (but not accelerating) and every other time a medium to large explosion occurs.
When it happens, all the pigs on the right are often killed, and if you are lucky some debris are sent to the left, detonating the tnt and killing the remaining pigs.
Here is the reward: http://angrybir.de/16Xj3eL
Hope it helps.
It’s the “if you can’t beat em join em” strat here. Not sure if it’s ok to do this? but after all the hullabaloo of the past few days I bit the bullet and purchased the PC version. I’ve just started with this level because of the high top score and I just couldn’t improve my own on the Apple platforms. A few flings, no special mouse, in fact a laptop touch pad and after less than 5 mins improved by 5k. Interesting! Work in progress.
I should add that it was a two birder, nearly a one, and that I have never seen this level explode in such a dramatic fashion. And it does it more often than not!
At least, I am glad that you can verify that by yourself ;-)
(and no, it is not wrong ;->> )
BTW, it took me a few days of flinging to get my first one birder and a little more to get the my current score.
I wish you luck.
I just spent a few days playing this level to improve my ranking here.. Just how much a “few days” means in number of resets, is anybody’s guess, but there were 100’s of them.
I tried all those strats mentioned above. But settled on one to work on. The video strat is very repeatable as a 3 star but I got frustrated without being able to break my high at 122k. I then tried the 1 bird approach suggested by Asher without any luck. So back to the 2 bird strategy again. This method was discussed by “to mock a mocking bird” above. I want to add it back in the discussion in my own words with a few things I found helpful.
First bird is the standard video shot taking out the hanging pig and the cake. The score results vary a lot here but I only go on with scores over 30k. 33 to 37k what your looking to get.
The second bird is the shot with all the potential. It’s an easy shot to make, just aim, release and wait for the result. It can result in a weak under 100k score or 120+. It’s just repeat and wait. The shot is just a high arch lob directly onto the TNT at the base of the tower. The bird falls to the bottom next to the large stones to the left. The bubble picks them up and drops them to the left pool. Hopefully getting that TNT to blow. It doesn’t happen that often, but it does happen with some varying results. Two tips here that I want to share are the aiming point and just let the bird expand on its own. The spot I found helpful is gauge the angle of the lob with tip of the jesters hat to the post of the sling. You will quickly find the right angle..
I spent enough time here so I’m moving on, but I shall return.
Thank you pjdambra!
Tried other starts described hundreds of times and couldn’t even break average.
With your strat I got 123+K on my first attempt. Brilliant.
This is just brilliant. A few retries later I gained 5k. And, as I don’t have the pc version (never had) I needed this. Thanks
For anybody wondering this is one of those magic hat levels that no longer has magic in the hats
Is this level a new one for “the list” @bonneypattycat ? It didn´t take me long to increase 12K and go to the near top. I toppled the stone triangle into the second pit and had 50K after first bird.
@rush 134k with 2 birds? Wow! I haven’t tried it yet, but it sure is nice to know a high score is still achievable, even without the “magic hats”.
@rush I have only picked up 2k for 129k so far, but yes, I do think it is playing a bit easier. I will be adding this level to the list. Thank you!
On a revisit. Much easier.
134960/2, and there’s more possible in this strat…up to 118K or so.
I couldn’t get more than 131K with the video strat. I noticed that the glass in the left side pit was hardly damaged, so I tried to develop a strat that would do more damage there.
This is a “reverse hammer” approach. First shot is like the video. Take out the hanging pig, the platform and the pig on it, dropping the boulder below. I reset if I didn’t have 135K after this shot. If you get 140K+ you’re doing great. You can try and get cute and take off the top of the tower on the way there…you can get 145K+ after the first shot that way. However, I haven’t been able to determine if this gives you an advantage or not.
The second shot is very different. Aim Stella on a trajectory just above horizontal and hit the TNT under the hammer directly. Activate Stella just after the TNT blows. If all goes well, the hammer will be lifted up to set off the TNT next to the tower. Lots of stuff can go wrong along the way, usually involving lifting the left pit TNT by mistake or something getting in the way of the hammer and the tower TNT. However, when it works, you can count on getting 130K+ scores. Took me days to get this one though.
great job and strat. @jrsquonk many thx
