Angry Birds Golden Egg #31 Walkthrough

Golden Egg #31 can be found in Angry Birds Short Fuse level 26-15. The Golden Egg is not visible when you first start the level, but hidden under the slingshot platform. To reach it, waste the first two birds before spinning a Boomerang bird back through the cave.

* Two part video: Part 1 shows you the location of the Golden Egg & part 2 contains the walkthrough on how to unlock the star.

Super High Score Strategy

Millions of points are possible in this level! By causing “Blue Potions” to release toward the trio of pigs above, you can start earning massive points. Normal destruction in this level will yield about 120,000 points. But if all 5 blue potions land on the three little piggies, trade 15,000 for up to 3,645,000 points. The score in the video below is a whopping 1,451,890!

Screenshot required for all scores in excess of 1 millions points. No exceptions. Any offending scores will be removed.

Save yourselves the time trying; turning your iPhone upside down won’t make the level any easier. Nor will locking the orientation and then turning it upside down!

It was worth a try!

I have scored in excess of 2,000,000, three times now in the almost hour I have played this level. My current recorded high score is 2,323,600, however I amassed a total beyond 2,600,000 (heart-breakingly, 2 pigs survived), and therefore wouldn’t be surprised if 3,000,000 is achievable.

There is really only one strategy for this level which is to release all 5 blue potions onto the pigs above and then clean-up whatever’s leftover using the remaining birds. My tips for this level is to activate the yellow bird’s speed boost almost immediately. See that pyramid looking part of the platform with the orange potion floating above it? you want to get as close to the peak of that structure without making contact with it. The aim is to cut the first rope holding the 4 blue potions without making contact with the wood or the potions. With the second piece of rope still attached to the plank of wood restraining the 4 blue potions, the angle of this wood will open up 90 degrees from horizontal to vertical and all 4 blue potions will slide down along with the other blue potion landing 5 direct hits on the 3 pigs above. Almost your entire score will be generated as a result of the first bird and there seems to be a lot of variation in what is left remaining. I don’t believe I have ever taken out the 2 top-left pigs with the first bird so I release my second shot around horizontal and spin the boomerang bird aiming for the pipe separating them, if you hit this pipe directly it will take out both these pigs. Use the new & improved bomb bird as you would a normal bomb bird aiming to bury it deep in a pile of stones and hope the explosion generates plenty of points and the debris destroys any remaining pigs. I had to use all 4 birds to complete the level when attaining my high score.

The screen froze for a few seconds while it tried to process all the animation elements in play. When it caught up, it blew the pigs off the screen in all directions, too quick to grab a screen shot, but it was pretty cool. Notice in the last pic the three pigs stuck in the permanent structure. Unable to hit them. :-(

Same thing. So many pigs blowing up that the game locked up for a few seconds. Unfortunately, mine didn’t yield many points. But it was certainly pretty cool to see. I was zoomed in, so the bloated pigs filled my screen up completely.

This is one of the most difficult, frustrating, clever, imaginative, and fun levels in any of the games, I think. It’s probably my very favorite, even though it is driving me nuts, and I’ve come nowhere near yet to getting over a million points.

There are just so many factors in play at once, some unique to elements in Short Fuse, and some variations on elements from some of the other games:

– A gravity pull, which we’ve seen lots of times before, but UPSIDE DOWN, and INVISBLE!

– The special potion properties, all of which you have to deploy, with exactly the right timing, so they don’t interfere with each other and give you a lower score. Although the exploding many little pigs is too much fun to miss.

– Having to aim that first yellow bird on exactly the right trajectory, without really any background elements to help you line up your shot with repeated accuracy. That dark featureless background behind the shooting platform is EVIL. There is definitely a mad scientist somewhere at Rovio who came up with that little twist.

– The random factor: even if you get your shot just right to release all the potions properly, you may still end up with one or two little multiplied pigs, which can mean the whole level fails on you.

– The unique reward, if you do manage to get it right, to score over a million or even two million points! Now that is amazingly satisfying. I hope everyone who has achieved it so far has done a wild, hand-waving victory parade all over the house, because you’ve certainly earned it for such a special achievement!

Thanks @the-krafty-one for your detailed strategy, especially the tip about accelerating yellow bird right away. I haven’t yet managed to actually duplicate what you describe, but at least I know exactly what I’m trying for!

Also thanks @myselfiandme for the detailed tip about the timing of the orange potion. Again, I haven’t managed it yet, but I know what to try!

And @Pete — I tried the upside-down thing too, which was really fun, and I thought it was very cool, but like you, I found it didn’t really help. Although I may give it another whirl, now that I know how to target all the other variables.

I think the missing key is finding a way to accurately line up yellow bird to make that first shot. There appear to be only one or two pixels that give you the right trajectory, and it’s very hard to find just the right spot with all that solid darkness in the background. I may have to resort to the tape on the screen trick!

I have a feeling that this is a level I’ll keep coming back to, just for the fun of it (even with all its frustration).

Congrats to everyone who managed to get high scores, and good luck everyone!

Same method. Timing is key to getting all the potions to fall where you want them.

If the orange potion falls to the left of the structure, it pushes debris onto the triple birds ruining the triplification process. If the orange potion falls to the right, you end up with the massive mess of expanding birds….cool looking, but it also ruins the triplification process.

I like the orange potion to land right on top of that structure. Most of the time that structure remains standing. If it does and you drop the five blue potions onto the triplet birds……you have the 1.8MM setup.

One time I had the middle bird from the structure fall onto the triple birds. Couldn’t finish, but had 2.4MM. The higher scores come from an extra bird onto the pile.

So about that timing….I found that if you time the release of the first bird about 1 second after the ropes holding the orange potion and blue potion make contact, that works to get the orange potion on top of the structure. If that doesn’t work for you, simply adjust your timing to get the orange bird to fall correctly.

Rank: Gold Flinger with 9470 points
By Myselfiandme (@myselfiandme)Score: 2,951,890

Correction to early comments. Higher scores do not need a bird from the structure to fall into the triplification zone at all. Bird that falls into the middle on occasion usually dies immediately or lands after potion effect is done. Does not impact things.

Higher scores require all five potions to land very tightly on the three bird zone, orange potion to land on middle structure and not topple it……and the TNT to explode by the bird before the triplification begins. If it blows afterward triplification begins, then lots of potential multiplying birds get destroyed before splitting….losing valuable points. From there, a little luck allows the boomerang to completely clear the pile….and the rest is easy.

@amslimfordy.
I know power up scores are not allowed for GE levels. While playing level 31, where nearly 3 million points are possible it came to me, does it really matter if a person uses a power up on this level, what will an extra 10k really do for the overall high score?

Then it dawned on me, it may not affect the high score much percentage wise, but it will most certainly assist in completing the level. Swapping out the bomb bird for either the green or yellow bird would make it easier to complete.

So I feel that the scores for GE31 should also be power up free. (My current 1.6 mil is power up free)

For swapping out the yellow bird, i was referring to the last bird not the first. Totally agree that the first must be the yellow to get all the blue potion bottles to float up to the top.

On the first of these shots, the game actually frose for something like 5 minutes and I was certain it had crashed totally, but it got going again eventually :-)

By the way, I find that turning it upside down does help, because then I can utilise all my aiming practise which makes it easier to aim correctly when there’s no details in the background.

I got 2,859,200. The key is use the yellow bird and wait til the blue potion swings towards the 4 blue potions to release. Immediately fire the yellow bird to hit the platform or rope and drop all 5 potions on the 3 pigs below (above) The rest just requires careful aim to finish them off. I used the tucan boomerang to kill the pile of pigs, bomb bird to pop the 4 pigs closest and the last yellow bird to finish off the stragglers.
