Angry Birds Mighty Hoax 3 Star Walkthrough Level 4-16

Mighty Hoax level 4-16 is very challenging. One strategy is to fire the Black bird into the third hollow stone square. Loft a Yellow bird and speed boost through the wooden plank between the two highest stone squares. If not all the pigs are cleared from this shot, repeat it with the next Yellow bird. The score in the video below is 79,650.

This level is my worst enemy. I was stuck on this for 2 months.

Drop the bomb directly into the third hollow ice block. Clean up the rest with the next yellow bird. 85,810

@e-star Used BlueBirdBalls strategy and E-Star’s video to improve the score 7K. Lined up the bomb bird launch with the light green follage in the background near its notch and/or adjust the gap between the sling and its base.

I managed to get 84130 with this method. However, the aftermath of the Black bird suggests that a 1 bird solution to this level is a possibility.

I managed to do it with one bird. I broke through both the ice and the stone block but the key being that one of the long wooden planks flew in and killed the stubborn innermost pig. 95250

Although I couldnt make the one birder (yet) I can confirm that this is the strat for high scores. Lob into the highest ice cube, destroying it. I can not say yet whether it is necessary to also destroy the cement cube under it, both happened to me, but last pig was never taken out. Only with second shot.

to destroy the middle glass square almost above the pigs with bombird and with a yellow destroy the pigs this one could take a while since you need to destroy the bloock with the black bird not with the explosion

Slightly different variation.

Instead of breaking the top (or furthest right) glass block, I’ve been trying to hit the wood block right below it. I have managed to break the wooded block and the glass block under it. This can result in the same basic collapse as the method described above, but it takes out a few more blocks.

By Furpecto_The_Sharp (@furpecto_the_sharp)Score: 87,940

Thanks Doc. Your 2-bird method take out more blocks resulting in a score improvement over the e-star 2-bird method. I’m still working on a 1-bird game to get that elusive extra 10k but can’t yet figure out the best strategy.

By to mock a mockingbird (@vuelva)

to that end, was following the method of the video at, using a low arc into that top-left wood hollow square, just clearing the one below it. frequently, the bomb bird breaks the glass hollow square to its right and explodes there, leaving a good follow-up (in that video, 90k). was playing for that (to slightly increase my almost 89k score), but i somehow got lucky, and the 1st made some stone blocks roll into to the cave taking out all but the stubborn rightmost pig (not infrequent), which this time also was taken out by some wood from the top-right rolling in (never happened before; usually it breaks upon entering the cave), giving 67.5k destruction for a 97.5k score.

i lofted the black bird into the third hollow ice square and destroyed it.
then with one yellow bird we can get 3 stars :D

By Sabrina

This strategy did not wwork for me at all! I was stuck on this level for months! The way that I finally did it was to launch the Black Bird into the top ice block; it exploded the stone block underneath and killed a bunch of the pigs. Then I launched the next yellow bird down through the remaining wood and killed the rest of the piggies. I got 78,490! 3 stars! FINALLY!

managed to get 93660 destroying the higher ice block and then setting the bomb off – got really lucky and 1 shot it

Black bird to single glass cube. Let it settle and crack stone cube. One blows should fall and take out all piggies below. One shot…..No Power Upds used on Facebook!!

By Red (@therealredbird)

This level is rather difficult because of the ice squares blocking the entrance to the pigs, and also because the debris can get stuck before falling and hitting the pigs. I recommend hitting the ice and then use the yellow birds to push the wood and stone planks and squares into the gap.

@sweet, not sure how to add screenshot from Daily Challenge on Android but anyway, here’s how I got 97k plus. I went for maximum destruction by aiming much lower than others have suggested, putting black bird into the second stone block up and after a few attempts got a significant collapse which allowed access to remaining wood with yellow bird causing even more destruction. Had to use next yellow bird to finish off pigs. Not much left but I think a 2 bird score of over 100k might be fluked this way. Conclusion, 3 birder can get right up there

@steviep147, I realise now that posting the strategy only 6 hours into the challenge is not the best way of getting the puppy! I should have waited until this evening…

By Angrychicken (@angrychicken)Score: 106,210

Thanks to @desperate-dan for the tip and to @steviep147 for putting it into a video. However, I actually had better success throwing the first bird even lower. It should just barely fly over the lowest hollow stone block of the cluster of 4 (smashing the front 2 simultaneously). It’s a pixel-perfect shot but highly repeatable once you get the hang of it. The next two birds were the same. I did get a two-birder for 95k but as you can see in the first screenshot, even 3 birds could crack 100k.

By the way, @desperate-dan, It’s not about getting the highest score among the people playing today’s challenge, it’s about beating the top score. Every player who beats Janine11982’s score of 99650 today will receive a puppy.

What a great challenge! A new strategy which now seems so obvious but no one ever had discovered before. I take my hat off to @desperate-dan who, marginally missing the puppy, deserves a special award for this great find. Special thanks also to @steviep147 for his video and @angrychicken for the tip of tweaking the first shot, this made things a lot easier. I quickly got close to the old highscore with 3 birds and it was only a matter of time until the desired two-birder finally worked, luckily with considerable destruction. Finally improved +20k.

Well, I did reach some sort of perfect finish where i had no pigs left, no birds left and not single piece of debris left. But only 89650 points. But 7 puppies and counting on a level that’s been around for almost a decade is quite an achievement.

@anton249, I finally got the score (103030) that would have got me a puppy 16 hours too late. 9 of us beat the old high score, I’m not too familiar with these challenges but i am guessing that’s a bit unusual?
