Angry Birds Mighty Hoax 3 Star Walkthrough Level 4-2

Our strategy for Mighty Hoax level 4-2 is to fire the first Blue bird head-on into the left tower. You need to pop all three pigs on the left side. Then fire the next Blue bird to take out the mustache and helmet pigs in the middle. Try to hit the stone block with enough force to topple it, and you can clear the three pigs on the right as well. The score in the video below is 56,950.

A better tip is to separate the first bird so the lower ones hit the tower, while the top ones fly over. You can take out several of the rightmost pigs this way, giving you less targets for the second shot.

58790. Seems possible to do 60k, but 70k is ridiculous. Some hint to get 1-birders?

Very happy to get this top score (71,150). See my screenshot.

I used 1 blue bird only (saw a demo video from YouTube). Aim the blue bird at the tip of the left tower and split it as near the tip as possible. You need a very rare good run to kill all the pigs. I was very lucky that the 2 ends of the “ice pool” dropped off so that I could earn some bonus points for more destruction. :)

I concur withe the luck part, but still, it’s an easy strat to duplicate, and the potential is there to break a score of at least the high sixty k range. I’m going to keep plying this strat, maybe I’ll get lucky.

As a side bonus, if you don’t get it with the first shot, it makes the second shot much easier.

I agree, TruckDriver, I improved into the low 60’s, with a few tries.

Okay lol, haven’t played this one for a while. And just now after only a couple of tries I’ve finally done it in 1 bird. Not the way I hoped for (sides of the pool sliding off), but by killing both middle pigs mysteriously with the middle blue bird (which never happened before in about 300(?) tries)

How did you get the helmet pig? Seems impossible to get … did it roll and drop?

That’s why I said I was very happy with the score I got. I’ve tried at least a few hundred times and this is the 1st time I can complete this level with 1 bird.

Most of the time after splitting the 1st blue bird, I’m left with at least 1 pig, either the left middle one or the right middle one. In most of the runs when one or both ends of the “ice pool” dropped off, the left/right middle pig concerned would roll and drop but most of the time it wouldn’t die. For the pig to die, you need a rare good run when it can drop from a greater height.

Actually I watched the YouTube video by “theater333”. For his case, the 2 ends of the “ice pool” dropped off, causing the 2 middle pigs to roll and drop. But he only got 66,320 pts because not much wood was destroyed in his run and the ice inside the “ice pool” didn’t crack.

For my case, all the pigs were killed very quickly at the start except for the right middle pig (with helmet). Initially the wood at the left side was already partially destroyed by the blue bird(s) and when the left side of the “ice pool” dropped off, it crushed some more wood. The right side of the “ice pool” dropped off later and I was lucky that the ice cracked quite much, so that the remaining pig could drop from a greater height and die.

@davidgoh Thanks for the 1 bird strat. I was not able to pull it off but increase my score by about 2K using your basic technique.

@davidgoh I know theater333’s angry birds video page very well. He’s my go to guy for getting high scores. I tried it his way also, but I ended up getting about the same score as he did, only slightly higher. Nice shooting, and way to persevere.

@dg123 broke my high score using the same method, see her post below.

The key is to split the blue bird as near the tip of the left tower as possible. You can use this technique in many other levels also.

Currently I’m busy playing the “Cut The Rope” games which released new boxes recently.

Great strat, @davidgoh! My score is nowhere near yours (I couldn’t damage the ice pool), but I’m happy with my above average score. TY

Great shooting, @davidgoh. Another (not as high-scored but easier – at least for me) strat is to SPLIT AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE at about the same angle. Jay (the top one) will go through to the right part, Jake (the middle one) will land (and kill) one of two middle pigs and “messing with the structure stability” (which eventually killed the other one), and Jim (the lower one) will hit straight at the left tower. Ummm, the Blues were named Jay, Jake, and Jim? Odd… :(

@davidgoh : good strat, worked very fine for me. One pig survived the first shot, so possible score would of been 73K….

Just managed 71340 !!!! Working my way through this level again so I didn’t feel so bad posting my scores. Followed the one bird strat.. which took out all except the two biggies, but had somehow managed to do damage to the wood/glass. The helmet pig started to roll, so I waited and waited – then the other pig started to follow, both rolled right off… Yes!!!

I just got the one birder as well. The right ice broke down and the middle pigs and one small pig from the right rolled down.

First time back here since 2012. Seeing the comments above concerning theater333 I looked and saw his excellent 1 bird video where the pool splits open. It will be interesting to see if it can still be done! No luck so far for me.

Here’s my video for 68k/1 bird. No pool action! Rinse and repeat of course.

BlueStackers (zoom out fully) tap spot is x17.66 y 69.32. GL with the puppy. It’s a difficult one.
