211K without PU’s and special slings. Destroying ice square below rocket releases it. Released first upper rocket, then lower and then middle one. And used all remaining birds.

Guess the order of rockets won’t matter much. Got also 211K when released them in order from lower to upper.

I’ve been experimenting with launching at a very low draw strength, almost vertically, releasing immediately to try to get the three bird split to launch the three rockets at the same time. unfortunately my fingers are so large I can’t see the angle of the sling properly so I haven’t had much success yet. I really do feel this is an option to get at least two possibly three ruckets to launch with one bird, thereby increasing score with extra birds remaining.

update. glass sling, draw straight down until the second twist, release then about 2 inches up split the birds. that got the two right rockets for me with me with one bird. still think three for one is possible.

I don’t think that is possible, at least for me. I can’t even get two rockets to launch at the same time and can’t see the way how I should launch a bird to achieve that. But I upped my score to 217K when played around, still no PU’s or special slings.

@sasilik, i get it to work about 20 percent of the time. I draw straight down, then release the pressure until the base of the bird is at the vottom of the second twist, and release. I split just below the crest of the hill behind the sling. Note; I play zoomed all the way out. That got me to 221k, but I think there is much room for improvement.

update, same strat, draw almost straight down, not full force, split near the hilltop but again that all depends on your perspective whether zoomed in or zoomed out. if you get the arc right you should get the first and the third rockets to launch. adjust based on platform, but this shot doesnt require powerups, so experiment until you have it right.
2. PP wingman/stone sling aiming for the largest concentration of rocks in the middle, just clearing the divider in a low slow arc, NOT using king sling.
3 J/S launching almost horizontal, so the ornaments get the middle rocket, splitting right after passing the vertical divider to clear the remaining birds, if any.

The current limit is too low. I have a current high score of 251,050.

I used PC.
Jingle Sling +KS. Send blues on a high arc, breaking near peak. The top bird can take out base of last floating stones case.
WM on second shot for preliminary cleanup of the stones. (Not full pull back)
Third shot with blues to make sure you take out rockets and get a little extra ice destruction.

I’m stuck at 221k. can anyone give some tips, aside from “use the birdies to pop the piggies better” ? I wasted about 50 wingmen in the above strat, cant seem to get the extra points he got.

Rank: Well Traveled with 1900 points

The best advice I can give is to recognize there are three platforms. The app mechanics are pretty similar, but they do slightly differ. PC mechanics are very different. If you can’t seem to do well on one platform, try the others. If your first shot doesn’t break all of the suspended stones and bring them down, restart. I haven’t had much luck on this level using IOS/Android. On PC, I can very consistently break 230k using above strat, points beyond that are a combination of luck and practice on the second and third shot. I send the WM into the large pile of small stones that forms after the first shot. The jingle balls knock out first and third rockets as well. The third shot takes out the second rocket with jingle balls and breaks up ice on the ground past where the first WM hits.

Rank: Well Traveled with 1900 points
By dbarker (@davelbarker)Score: 251,050

If you do it right, as my strat says. The small stones will be virtually eliminated from the WM shot. And the cleanup shot with the blues will eliminate all of the ice on the ground. 3 shots, with appx 220k points.

@davelbarker , thanks, I wish I’d seen this sooner. as it is, I came up with something a little different, that ended up giving me another 17k, but takes a bit more pinpoint aiming, however uses less PU than I was originally using.

EVERYONE!!!! This level is much easier than we are making it out to be. All of the rockets are aimed at good targets, but we only need two of them. {..removed..} has a VERY good video, but it can be even better. FYI, I use PC, Maximum out-zoom, and JS.

1st bird as per {..removed..}. JS; I prefer to aim it “short” and then MIRV one of the BBB’s into the ice block. For aiming on my PC, I align my mouse with the top of the strange “Black” tree above the BB. This takes out at LEAST 3 of the floating stone things, and on a good day takes out ALL of the 9 pigs on the right (plus 4 or 5 on the left). That’s what you are going for.

BUT, 2nd bird into ice block below RED Rocket. This is an important shot; I align my mouse about 2 mm ABOVE the top of BB, and you MUST power-trigger YB IMMEDIATELY upon his release, or Jingle Balls will blow everything to hell. But you NEED the Jingle Balls to blow up the other Green Rocket for the points.

You are still left with some pigs on the left. Now you have to decide. If you don’t have many stones left, use a PP WM (NO SS!) just over the fence to kill the remaining birds. I align my mouse with the top of BB’s head (but not his top “feather”).

If you have a lot of stones left, just use the BBB just over the fence (NO PP or SS!) to take out the birds, THEN quickly select WM and PP, and aim him further into the stones.

This works consistently and well, but you will have to practice your aiming AND be willing to re-start if no good destruction on right after first bird+rocket combination.

Good flinging!

Everyone keeps talking about their success with PC, but I don’t have a PC. Dozens (and dozens!) of attempts of all strategies with Android and my scores are still awful. I have launching all 3 rockets with first 2 birds down to a science, but no luck beyond that. Should I give up on this level with my Android and just work toward perfecting the other levels?

Rank: Gold Flinger with 9010 points
By Steinbird (@steinbird)Score: 239,270

@dartdancer, you’re stuck on a two-edged sword. Most of the time, the game seems to favor Android with the total destruction. BUT, you can aim better with a mouse, so that’s a benefit to PC. For the 3rd shot, you need to get the BBB and most of the Jingle balls over the fence (splitting IMMEDIATELY there), and then clean up with a loaded WM, again, just over the fence. If you can add a BT mouse you can, with a little patience, work out the exact release points-of-reference to the bottom left of the sling shot. Try bringing the 3rd bird (a BBB) firing position of the cursor to the lower 10% of the BB waiting in line. That is the right place on a PC, and like I said you can work it out on Android. I hope you can get it.

@steinbird , When I used the loaded wingman, it flew far beyond the pigs / debris, even when it barely cleared the fence. If I skip the SS, it doesn’t have enough force to take out any debris. :( At a loss.

By Steinbird (@steinbird)Score: 239,270

Hi @dartdancer, I looked and saw that you are on Android. That may be the problem. But I still think that if you practice, you can get the LWM to just barely clear the last wall and still take out the debris. If not, try it without the SS; just use WM with PP. I know that will work, it’s how I did it the first way.

@sal9, @dseufert, OK, I’m sorry. But after talking with TSL, it seems that there is a big difference from Android to PC. For example, the background on Android is MUCH bigger (I’m fully zoomed out on my PC and am missing TONS of stuff that Android can see). IMHO, I think that this also affects shooting. 2-birds or even 1 (with high scores) are possible on Android; I do not think that it is possible on a PC. The best I have gotten, or have seen anybody post here of on FB, is 3 birds (again, with a high score).

My eyes are old, and the strain!! I prefer playing on PC, but the odd time will give it a whirl on tablet. From here on in, all tournament levels may favor mobile, seeing that Rovio had announced there was not going to be any additional games for PC or support!! Good luck!!

No “you am not”, @pienoceros! This game can actually change the way we look at and think about things. That’s why I love it. PS I think the limit with my strat the way it is will be about 241K with 4 birds (I just went from 236K to 239K); If I can somehow get it down to 3, I can see the 245-255K score possible. But the 263K-267K stuff is ridiculous.

BTW, top score on FB for this level was done with two birds on mobile. First bird (no PUs) plus Jingle Sling to corner of sky rocket, top left. Lucky split at the last second should take out all sky rockets and pigs on the far right groind. Second bird plus PP+KS on steep downward angle, split early, to get remaining pigs and ice structure.

@steinbird and anyone else… The platform/browser issue is not new. Some weeks favor PC/FB including Mac/FB. Other weeks seem to favor mobile: IPad, iPhone, smart phones, tablets, or Android tablets. There is yet another option: BlueStacks, which is a mobile emulator that can be downloaded for free on your PC or Mac. It makes your PC or Mac behave like a mobile device except you have more precision in aiming by mouse. BlueStacks works satisfactorily on PC and turns your PC into a “mobile” device. Very helpful if you don’t have mobile alternatives. On Mac desktops, however, BlueStacks is very squirrely. It behaves poorly on OSX. Avoid BlueStacks on Mac, but it is kinda necessary on PC. Google BlueStacks and download it on your PC. You’ll be glad you did :)
