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.

In Angry Birds v4.0.0 (Birdday Party update) two of the blue potions have been removed so it is not possible to get those super high scores anymore. Too bad, because this was the most fun level to play for a long time.

Now that two blue portions are gone, there goes

3,766,360 Points. You have to get all 5 potions to hit all 3 pigs. Sometimes only 4 potions will hit 2 pigs, and all 5 only 1 pig. But all 3 pigs need to get hit by all 5 potions to maximize point potential over 3 million.

Question for @AMslimfordy:
Before aiming for a good score in GE 31 I noticed your comment “Screenshot required (in red) for all scores in excess of 1 millions points.” In your other comments the words in red are a link to further explanation, however not in this case.
I checked all other comments, FAQ’s, Forums and Guides but couldn’t find how to make a screenshot. I am playing on Android smartphone (Samsung Galaxy S3 mini) and I see no screenshot-button, neither in the game screen nor can I use my menu button in the game.
The only way I can think of is to get some digital camera or some other smartphone and make a picture of the game screen on my smartphone and upload it to the website under Pictures in my Profile and then put the link in here.
Now this first part of making an external picture as a screenshot does not seem the proper way, so can you tell me how I can do this with my Android smartphone itself?

@leggy – the badge would make sense if Rovio did not change this level. However, after the last update it is not possible to get over 500,000. So, for those of us who did not play this level to the fullest before the update it is not possible to achieve 1 mil anymore. Perhaps, our admins could persuade Rovio to reverse the change and put back the two potions they removed. Why did they have to change it? It was so much fun to watch the screen filled with all those pigs. It was hard to kill them all, but it was fun. And now it has become just another difficult level without the fun part.

Point taken, although from the scores/screenshots still being entered/submitted, this would suggest that not everyone has updated the app yet. Have to agree, the change has made the level less fun, but as mentioned up above, fortunately, I keep backups of my apps, so as soon as I’ve saved up enough for a secondary device, I will be trying for the 2mil club. ;)
All told, my suggestion was just a way to reward those who have worked hard to achieve 1mil+ mark on this level, and should the badge be implimented, well I’d happily send you a copy of the previous app so that you can play the level to your heart content. :)

@AMslimfordy, @leggy, @annach… I agree, like some others mentioned it seems a bit unfair that users who play the updated game (as normally is intended) have a great disadvantage in the leaderboard, let alone that users who play the outdated game from their trash bin should be rewarded with a badge. With only 3 potions as being the official version now, it’s impossible to come even close to the score of 1 Mln for which a screenshot is required. In my opinion the difference with 5 potion scores is way too big and shows a crooked leaderboad.
I would indeed suggest to ask Rovio to put the 5 potions back in the game, or else maybe have the 5 potions users delete their scores. I also have worked very hard for my 400K+ score and like to be rewarded in my ranking. Am I realistic or not, please share your views, thanks!

@thijs2 – sorry didn’t see this (no notification!) Or I would have replied sooner.

The same could be said of the Santa hat glitch, for which many members (excluding myself) were able to achieve high scores before rovio changed things – are those leaderboards ”crooked” too? I think not! These so-called ‘glitch’ levels are/were available to everyone, and regardless of whether a member chooses to update their app, or to play an older version of the app on a secondary device (as some members here on ABN have reported doing) in order to take advantage of a glitch, well that is their choice, right?

In any case, I had already responded with regards to my badge suggestion by saying ”point taken” – meaning that yes, I see now how this could be unfair to those that are no longer able to achieve high scores, and since rovio have since stated that this potion removal is permanent, well I’m sorry to say that this is something you just have to accept in the AB world, as I have done with the Santa hat glitch.

Enough said!

My two cents without anger or judgement – just an opinion…

– I don’t like the fact that unrepeatable scores (those obtained with glitches that get fixed and randomly reworked levels that get thrown in to builds with regular updates) are allowed onto these leaderboards on ABN. Why should a player be punished for not finishing every level in a release in one day before a glitch is fixed. Perhaps some like to stretch things out when new levels come out. We don’t all have 5 devices on which to play or wish to scour trash bins to uninstall/reinstall. As for “choosing to update,” really? Is it a choice? So it’s keep trying for 2M points on ONE level or get the 60 or so new levels that have been released SINCE then? The glitches and extremes possible that players find make it fun. But… when these are taken away after they have pretty much skewed the average score beyond all possibility it ceases to be either fair or fun. Give a badge to those lucky enough to have played it when it was available but the leaderboards should NOT use scores that will never again be obtainable. I didn’t get 1M plus here but I did get over 500k when all five blue potions were there. I would gladly replay for a currently accurate high and re-report if this change were ever implemented. So much love to all but fair is fair is fair.

Found ABN.com comments about the wheel in lower left corner to turn off Volumn, i, and POWER UPS. Problem solved. Joined ABN and entered all scores. Found the unbelievable 3Million+ and rushed to the 31st egg to get my new score . . . What?, I can’t… Those Rovio people are great. I wonder if they can update the game to even the playing field and let the rest of us work the multi-million goal. If I had been lucky to get the big scores, I really would not like to give them up.

very disappointed and somewhat disheartened to see Rovio has removed the high scoring elements from this level. not at all the same as a glitch, code, being fixed. the original number of blue bottles were a drawn element specifically and intentionally put in for gaming pleasure. i,m questioning Rovio,s mindset regarding the removal.
what were they thinking: “too many people are having too much fun getting too many points”?
perhaps it was an even colder, more gray & depressing winter than normal in finland.
While “it,s just a game” is certainly true, the removal of a points reward for playing a game seems mean spirited. those of us coming to this level well after its initial release (which includes all new buyers of the app) will NEVER be able to attain the total high scores that were 1st available. this just seems wrong. and a bit hopless.

There are some possibilities to find old versions of the game (see justpast40 message below), so don’t despair, you may have the possibility to have one some day. As far as I can say, the game is quite unstable with the five potion version. One of the reason is that you may have an orange potion hitting the pigs in addition of the blue ones. If so, as soon as you have more than 100 inflated pigs, the game can (i) freeze (ii) put some pigs with undestroyable structure (iii) sends pigs so far away that they are off screen so that, in all cases, you cannot even finish the level (I missed several 1.5M+ scores because of that). Bringing down the level to three potions was fully justified, and the strange thing is that the glitch was not seen before the release, because it was pretty clear that producing 729 inflated pigs thanks to the five potions was possible.

But I agree, the score should be capped. Not because it is difficult (although not impossible) to play with an old, nolonger available version, but because the episode overall leaderboard is so much dependent on the score on this level, which is the reson that made ABSp S-15, as well as ABSW 5-20 and 5-29 capped.

With the 3 potion version, you can create 81 pigs instead of 729, which reduces your score by 3.24M wrt the best score with five potions. This means that you can still get scores above 500k, even with the late version. This is actually what I had gotten before finding an older version.

I am also revisiting this level after having found an old 3.4.0 version. No luck yet, although I got several opportunities to get 1.8M, but with too many scattered pigs that I could not get rid of with the remaining birds.

@justpast40

There is probably a big gap between the 3.5M score and what is below, as the first one necessitates that each of the three pigs is hit by the five potions (hence giving birth to 729 pigs -> 3.645M points) and the other is at best 2 pigs hits by five potions and one with 4 potions, that is 2×243+1×81=567 pigs = 2.835M points, which is probably insufficient to give you 3M in the end after adding debris. My best failed attempt so far was probably something like 1 pig with 5 potions, 1 with 4 potions, and one with 3 potion (1.755M points + debris). I still have to find the proper timing with the swinging potion.

Getting the 5 blue potions fall on each of the three pigs is the (difficult) goal of this level if you still have an old version of it. However, there is something else that is worth doing at least once: having one pig (or more) hit by all 5 five potions AND an orange potion. Then, since the process usually makes the orange potion hit the pig(s) after the blue ones, one obtains at least 243 pigs, all of which are then inflated because of the orange potion.

The result makes the app temporarily freeze for several seconds (possibly more than one minute), as it is very difficult for the game to find a place for each of the inflated pigs. In case the game does not crash in the process, one can behold it frame by frame, since each frame is built several seconds away from each others.

I could make a series of screeshots of this, which remains for me the weirdest sighting I have ever seen in any of the Angry Birds games:
