The Danger Above Chapter 8 backgrounds remind me of Jack and the Beanstalk. Maybe the hen laid a GE in 8-15? :)

I found it easier to go via 3-birder, since concrete counts a lot in this level.
First shot head on straight into first vertical triple stone structure. This breaks upper stone, bomb kills three pigs by falling into columb. Via explosion 3 more pigs in the middle die. Then fire into concrete left next to third columb, causing damage and again killing 3 pigs. Same with last bomb. W/b gives extra 10.000.

I agree with Emider, block count, and help kill pigs. I found it’s better to let the bricks do the job, instead of direct kill of the pigs. I lobed the first bird into the middle empty column, let it rest on the ground, and explode. Next bird far right pile, next, closes pile. hit bricks, not pigs. One bonus bird. G.L.! :)

Used the AMslimfordy video technique on the first shot. Lined up bomb bird with the curved tip of the green plant behind the sling. Then used Emider’s first shot for the left side. Flung the 3rd bomb bird to the right to take out the remaining pigs.

Second option. Fling the 1st bb high and down the center gap that does not have any pigs. Takes out center blocks and 6 pigs. Line up the aim of the launch a little behind the curved tip of the green plant. Fling 2nd bb down into the first right column of pigs with a slight arc. Fly the bb over to the far right sent of pigs.

I took a center, left, right, approach, the center being the wide gap covered by a brick. When possible, although counterintuitive to me, let bomb bird land in the snow. I like to go for the center gap first because a good blast from the left will block the gap.

used that to get 117k/3. the 1st i first let damage (not break) the top right two stones, then bounce back to the left, and bounce forward into the right corner, before exploding. this is not only to take maximal advantage of damage-points by impact with the bird, but letting it explode there causes every few attempts that stones pile up on the left against the two-stone wide tower, and that’s the goal. i reset if that doesn’t happen (e.g. if this pile collapses to the right) or if the score is below 45k (with six pigs, in two stacks of three, still alive; around 50k is an excellent/infrequent score then; 47k+ quite frequent). 2nd then in a high arc, onto the piled up stones, just right of the original tower, hoping it breaks through two of them (and the others caving in around the bird) before exploding and sending debris flying everywhere. i reset if the score is below 75k (with the three pigs in the stack on the right still alive; around 80k is an excellent/infrequent score then; 76k+ quite frequent). 3rd in a medium arc such that it ends up low in the snow, after breaking through the left stone of the base of the tower (shot often not available due to there being more than one stone in front; then improvise :-).

got my current best after 77k after the 2nd, so i think 119k should be possible with this strategy as i have had 79k after the 2nd with a similar situation. not sure whether the 118k+ scores have been obtained with it or whether there are other better strategies, but do know that it gave a 110k+ score almost every time after a successful 1st, wheras i was struggling to get such scores with the usual methods, and that i’ve had more than twenty 114k+ scores with it.

here’s a link to the first of the three screenshots taken after each bird in that 117k run:

(screenshots and score both by accident; had already decided to move on, and settle for my then best score of 116k, but wanted to post the strategy anyway so did a run to get the accompanying screenshots; an excellent run it was.)

I went back to this level, improved from 110k to 115k. Three birds is definitely better than two on this level. My approach was like @bonneypattycat — first bomb lobbed into the gap between 2nd & 3rd bird columns. The resulting empty space in the middle allows more flying debris on second and third bombs.

I got a hard time trying to find a good 3rd bird strategy to maximize the damages.

So, the first bird is in the middle. You should get around 45-52k after the first bird and, this is important, the stone pillar on the right of the first tower must be destroyed.

The second bird is on the far right to take care of the right part.
At this point you should be around 78-80k to hope for a really high scores.

Now, the third bird trajectory is like this:
And the black bird must explode here:

If everything is going well, the remaining tower should be pushed to the right.

This is the resulting damages after my third bird:

And here is the highscore screenshot:

Hope it helps.

@admins can you double check the high score on this level?
Seems a bit convenient , exactly 120k and as mentioned in other episodes I believe with @asher (comfy chair) equipment he’s most likely found the closest to possible of the points available on this level..

@kathy: you must deactivate your adblocker on tinypics to see the images. This one of the reason I have switched to imgur a few months back.

However, there is enough left for improvement ;-)

Ooh thanks @asher uhmm any idea how i do that? Turn off adblocker?
But so you think the highscore is legit? Or i should say ‘doable’
I use you for kinda a judgement on what’s acheivable due to your precision mouse and in general i think PC users have a slight advantage due to a number of different things.. I’m just joking when i mention your ‘comfy chair’ lol..??

@kathy: on my firefox and chrome, the adblock is an extension and I can toggle it on and off from the toolbar. I don’t know what kind of browser you are using but I guess that should be the same.

As for the top score it is definitely doable, and I can vouch for @4lien. We did a long battle on Danger Above for several weeks (months?) and considering the awful amount of time spent on each level by both of us, his scores are perfectly ok by me.

In the end I guess that his chair was more comfy than mine ;-)

@asher I have Chrome browser , thanks I’ll look in my settings.
As far as top score, if you vouch for it, I’ll take that, good enough..
Uhmm maybe in future competition with @4lien you need to update the comfy chair.. heehee?
Sorry to question your score @4lien and congratulations on the ?

New Site Record! Achieved this by throwing the first bird at a 45-degree angle so it hits the two horizontal blocks on top of the center structure, so that it then falls. Just before the bird hits the ground in that center space, explode it manually. Then, throw the next two birds into the two big piles with the remaining pigs, trying to aim low so that the explosion causes the remaining structures to fall in on themselves, racking up more points.

@silphspectre just slipped past your score with basically the same strat. First bird high lob to break through the middle horizontal stone block at the top of the two double wide stone pillars in the middle, detonating just before reaching the ground. For the second and third shots, I found there usually were one or two layers of vertical stone blocks in front of the remaining pigs, so I aimed high enough to just get over them and into the middle of each remaining pile.
