Angry Birds Danger Above 3 Star Walkthrough Level 8-14

Our strategy for Danger Above level 8-14 is to launch the first Red bird through the balloon holding the TNT block and into the stone block behind it. The impact should cause a chain reaction of TNT, leading to the column on the far-right detonating. Loft the next Red bird through the first three balloons above the level, gaining significant points from the falling structures. Pop the remaining pig with a Red bird. The score in the video below is 86,040.

Done as the video shows, but it’s easy to see that the highest scores are scored with 2 birds not the 3 used in the video. Point being, that the video method with the 1st 2 birds is the way to go.. Make sure to hit the balloon on the lower half to get the TNT to carry over to the far right to explode the TNT stack. It’s pretty easy to get all the pigs with the 1st bird, but to get the higher scores you need more destruction. I like to shoot my 2nd bird as soon as I see a good TNT carry with the 1st bird. Doing it quick like that insures you won’t get shut out after the last pig dies. My best here is 98,620.. Good Luck..

Aim first bird at first stick with tnt on top hitting it just right so tnt tumbles to the right but not hitting the tnt hanging from the balloon. Now scaffolding with two tnt’s on top should be gone. High arc on second bird to take out three balloons and hitting the last stick with tnt on top getting a nice chain reaction. Key to high score is destruction of scaffolding. 102680

After the first bird there probably will be a pile of wood somewhere. The tnt swings, so time your shot so it will swing on top of it as soon as the balloon is snapped by the falling platform. Can’t record so let’s just wait for e-star to do that.

WOW! Thanks so so much … finally did it. And you’re right … getting rid of scaffolding IS the key!

What a great strategy, thank you @haddock5, added 10k to my score. I timed the 2nd shot to release the red bird just before the swinging TNT starts to move back to the right. This way the TNT tends to drop down without being hit by anything to get a bit more destruction on the ground.
@e-star thank you for the video. I’ve been replaying some of the older levels & it’s wonderful to see all your great videos, they’ve helped me a lot along the way :)

Definitely the way to go, I made it to 76k on my own, then 86k after watching the Nest video, and finally 100k with the haddock5 method.

Thanks @haddock5 for this alternate strategy. I nailed it on the first try and couldn’t believe I could get such a high score since I’d always barely get enough points for 3*.

Thank you! I needed a few tries though, because the TNT on the balloon confused me with its swinging.
