Angry Birds Mighty Hoax 3 Star Walkthrough Level 4-17

Mighty Hoax level 4-17 can be cleared using only one bird. Loft the Yellow bird nearly straight up, then speed boost through path of four wooden triangles. The bird won’t make it every time, but when it does, you are nearly guaranteed 3 stars. The score in the video below is 31,050.

I prefer the “double side attack” means firing twice into the sweet spot left on the third wooden triangle (counted from below). Brings simply more debris and that counts.

Thrilled that I came back during the adverts and got the top score. And there was a lot of debris left! I’ll put the top score pics on if no one beats it which I think they will. 😂

I also prefer a 2 birdie. It got me 35080.
I shot the left side structure so when the second bird hit it the way the video above shows, more blocks fall down.
I got my highscore before I started making video’s and I couldn’t replicate the same score, but the video yields a score of 34480

Here’s the video

I managed a hybrid of both walkthroughs and got 34450. Not exactly a barn burner, but that’s OK, as this level was giving me fits, trying to get above the average. This was the last one I needed for level 4, so now, it’s on to level 5.

@e-star, got any idea how some people got their scores up to 40k? Must’ve been by some other way. It just won’t work your way. Pushing my self to the very limit here… :(

@e-star, i’ve found it! A 2-birder at the EXACT same spot. Was it the method @emider mentioned above? The third wooden triangle up the ground. Sometimes the simplest thing is just the best thing to do… ;)

Nice score @birdjo! Those high score were driving me crazy too, and they still are :)

Were both shots horizontal, or like E-Star’s video, only to the third block up with the first bird?

As always @e-star comes through again with another great strategy! A bit hard because the second yellow bird did not go through all the wood. But persistence paid off and I finally got my score above average.

It was so hard speeding through the wooden triangles.

I was looking for this walkthrough, play this level while waiting for this page fully loaded, and before I read any of those strategies I got three stars.
I just fling the bird at a medium arc and hit the speed burst, next thing I know is I got three stars with a score of 43120.

Same strategy..
to be more exact.. i was aiming at 3 wooden triangles that are over 2 rock ones… somewhere in the mid-air kit the speed burst and got 43520 with 1 bird..

i’m getting 37-40k every 2nd try with this metod. 43k was just mega lucky

The top score given by beagle 007 is 26K higher than 2nd place, and there is no strat or screen shot posted to back it up. Can this really be legit?

I already had 41820, decided to try for more. Fired first bird directly at triangle 4th row up on left, all fell through for 33o8o plus 20000 bonus. Tried same strategy next day, got 50000 straight away, so not a fluke.

Thank you for the post @peep! This level is way easier than it was once. In just a few flings was able to get 42k with two birds. Long ago, I struggled to get above 35k. Someday I will come back and try for a great 1-birder.

Thanks for the tip @peep, and congrats on your top score. Increased my score to 3rd place within 5 minutes (for now at least). Guess there will be a lot more higher scores to come now :)

@steviep147 – Just got a 1-birder for 48,620. I must have played this level 1000 times in the past. Only took 10 minutes to creep up from 36k to low 40’s and then 48K.

Thanks for the screenshot @steviep147. Started out at 31xxx from 2011. Took a couple of hours to move up to 42xxx with a 2 birder. Was about to move on but 4 tries later got the 1 birder for 49220. Top score.

The top score of 109450 by mooeyg is not possible. The player also has many other #1 scores in Mighty Hoax. Perhaps they were entered in the wrong episode.

Thrilled that I came back and got the top score. Well so far. Got an uploading problem yet again with iPhone .png screen shots that are apparently too big. @admins Strange because I’ve had no problems with them recently until today. Whatever. I will upload the screen shots from my computer if needs be.

I got really good destruction on the right side, which lead to my high score. The one remaining stone triangle can be seen in my screenshot.

Good luck & happy flinging to all !!

At time of posting, a rather pathetic puppy score @sweetp.

This may be a great strategy but it relies on this level having got easier. One for that list, if not already. I went back to a Version 3 on Bluestacks and this would be impossible.
