Angry Birds Mighty Hoax 3 Star Walkthrough Level 4-8

Our strategy for Mighty Hoax level 4-8 is to loft the first White bird over the main tower, dropping its bomb just left of the TNT on the right side. With a similar purpose, drop a bomb just right of the TNT on the left side. Be sure to keep the second White bird low, so it will ricochet into the main tower. As necessary, bomb the middle tower to pop the final pig. The score in the video below is 51,890.

1 birder. I threw the bird into the main structure, killing the pig in the middle. The pile fell over and ignited the tnt to the left, killing the pig. The bird rolled off into the gap where the first tnt is, killing the pig on the right.

I have really bad sense of direction. The pile fell over and killed the pig to the RIGHT. Then the bird rolled over to kill the pig on the LEFT.

Almost got over 70k on this, but the TNT didn’t blow up, the white bird just pushed everything over to the right and the egg bomb blew up the left TNT for a score of 66,350.

Errr, i think that’s not what @blahalb09 was saying, @e-star. @blahalb09‘s bird ricochets of the tower and kills the left pig while in your video White goes through the middle tower, detonating the right TNT. Anyway, big thanks to both of you for the “aim at the middle structure” strat. I improvised the strat a bit and came out with another not so different one (maybe like how @fillmore1234 got the score).

1. High-arc just like in @e-star‘s video but at a slightly higher trajectory so that there is no space between White and the slingshot at aiming position (note that in @e-star‘s video, there is a small space in between). White should “fit” in the gap between the tower on top of the left TNT and the middle structure this way.

2. Wait a bit longer than the video to release the egg, approx. when White is level with the upper of two horizontal stone planks above the middle pig (the longer one).

3. The egg will either detonate the left TNT (and kills the left pig), breaking two rectangular stones left of the middle pig (you guessed it right, the pig will be dead by this), or both. White? It’ll push the entire middle structure rightward, toppling the tower on top of the right TNT and the structure that shelter the right pig.

When done correctly, this method yields quite a high success rate. I would say 1 out of 5. @truckdriver, @wrw01, @kathy, @kimmiecv, you guys might want to try this… ;)

Thanks, @sal9. Just sharing a tiny bit of my HUGE curiosity over this helluva fun gaming franchise… ;) Oh by the way, this strat does have a high success rate BUT (yeah, unfortunately there is a BUT) the resulting score might vary a lot. As of my record, it’s somewhere around 60k to my current 74k (with still a big room for more)… :)

@edzhis, congrats and thanks for sharing! Never thought about this strat before but worth considering it indeed. So far, only 75 this way but 80k seems almost impossible to me. I guess manu will soon contradict me ;-)Just out of curisoity, do you think that 2-birder strat could make the trick?

Two bird solution – 79,340
This is a little altered version of strategy posted by @edzhis here.
1-st Matilda:
Land the egg just between right structure and right TNT tower. (Just as marked as “1” on @edzhis picture). You must explode the TNT. Both structures should collapse.
2-nd Matilda:
Shoot the hi-arc, to place Matilda between middle structure and left TNT tower.(Just as marked as “3” on @edzhis picture). Aiming there is quite tough, but not impossible. Drop the egg just before impact. Everything that was still standing should collapse.

So I came back to it and tried BirdJo’s strat without any effect. It just didn’t want to work on OIS for some reason. Anyway I reverted to the obvious firing line, just over the top of first two towers and into the third whilst laying the egg. Well I’m pleased to say it worked. Pic here for the trajectory.

Forget about complicated strats for top-scores around 80k. Just straight hit to upper stone plank of middle building and hope for luck.

I finally obtained a decent score using Birdjo’s strategy. I also used Axxieck’s approach and believe that both strats are fundamentally the same, i.e., launch the WB into the second gap, detonate so that it richochetes into the end of the top stone slab, and hope for good fallout. The only difference is the trajectory — high (Birdjo) or flat (Axxieck). The high trajectory was easier for me but both approaches required a lot of attempts. I got many 1-birders but most of my scores were in the mid to low 60k range until the debris fell just right. I had to hold my breath because the helmeted pig still survived but the WB carcass had caromed nearly straight up and fell directly onto him.

1 birder same as @axxieck and @steviep147. I always find these “late release of Matilda’s egg” shots tricky, as 8 times out of 10 she stubbornly refuses to let go! This time the egg landled just to the left of the two thick vertical blocks at the bottom of the middle tower. There is a small ‘ledge’ where the lower block sits on the black stone base, and the egg landed exactly on the corner, collapsing the middle tower to the right and setting off the TNT to the left. Not-a-carcass flew up off screen, then fell back to earth taking out more debris from the pile from collapsed tight towers.

Low arc trajectory like this:

Exactly as described by @peejaydee27. Egg on the ledge, bird to the upper stone plank and deflects almost straight up, middle tower dropped right. Simple, but not easy! Precision in both arc and timing needed.

If you can get it to work, the low one-bird strat dropping the egg right before the middle tower on the platform yields higher scores in Classics.
