Angry Birds Mighty Hoax 3 Star Walkthrough Level 5-17

The general strategy for Mighty Hoax level 5-17 is to lob Yellow birds downward into the trough. Our order goes as follows. Speed the first Yellow bird through the first small pig. Lob the next Yellow bird into the small pig in the middle level. With the next few Yellow birds, take out the feet of the structure at the bottom. The score in the video below is 103,630.

Same strat as the video, but with a little bit more luck and one extra bird left. Got 116950!

Here’s the video

80k + 4 spare birds ;-) just a bit more to the left on all birds used. Luck on last bird made all roofs collapse above the lower pigs.

@e-star Thank you the the alternate strategy and video. Found that lining up the bird launches with the distance from the base of the sling enables one to obtain a consistant pattern on where the birds land, whether to the left or more to the center of the structure. It appears the key to the higher score is the more destruction of wooden boards along with the remaining birds. Had three birds remaining for this score but was very close to 4 spare birds as z0z0 mentioned below.

120k+ strategy: Fire first YB and accelerate at the last second so it passes through the first diagonal bird on the top left, without touching the small vertical board on it’s left or the slightly longer diagonal board that is just above the first pig. YB will pass through and come to rest on the horizontal board, wait until he disappears and then shoot the second YB on the EXACT same path. With luck, it will pass all the way through to the bottom left pig. Wait until the structure settles to the left and then shoot the third yellow bird at a flatter angle than the first two YBs, so it passes through the least amount of wood to get to the pig on the bottom right.

Thanks thetoddman23. Your strat, after a LOT of repetitions, worked wonders!

@bonneypattycat I got one, I got one! :)

I used the @thetoddman23‘s strategy. The first shot now has a bigger margin because you can aim a little more to the left, breaking through the small wooden plank at the top left. Then another shot at the same trajectory, hugging the left wall. I had several high-ranking scores in quick succession when suddenly the board above the bottom right pig got smashed by falling debris, giving me a 2-birder:

Judging by the leaderboard, I’d say this was not within the realm of possibility before.

Thank you for the report @angrychicken and congrats on top score! It took me about 20 minutes to get a 2-birder, which I could never do before. This level will be added to

@angrychicken Fantastic score and great find. Congrats and thank you! It’s certainly easier. 3 birds will easily get you in the mid 120’s. I can’t quite break into the 130’s with 2 yet but I’m more than happy with a 14k improvement!

I dunno what this is but it’s not the facebook game I have. Are you going to put up the real facebook mighty hoax walkthroughs?

This shouldnt differ much from the Facebook version, but in any case, no, we do not intend to record these sorts of levels again. The proof of concept works fine as-is.

The levels are the same, but the play is much different. It is much easier to score big points in the Facebook version. I achieved nearly total destruction in this level in FB, but I cannot get anywhere near this in the classic app.

I used the strategy offered by @thetoddman23, but haven’t been able to complete the level in two birds (yet). Nevertheless, even with three birds, I improved my score by over 5000 points. One of the things that I noticed is that on the first shot, you need the bird to damage the horizontal board on which it comes to stop. If it isn’t damaged, the second bird won’t make it all the way to the bottom.

By thetoddman23 (@thetoddman23)Score: 129,020

@DocTonyNYC you are right on needing the horizontal board to be damaged by the first bird. Also, I used 3 birds to get my score and not 2 (2 birds high trajectory to the left side and the 3rd bird to the bottom right).

By DocTonyNYC (@doctonynyc)Score: 115,400

You’re absolutely right, and I just someone missed the sentence where you mentioned the third bird, @thetoddman23. I actually wonder if it’s possible with two, though. I came pretty close to it a couple of times.

It very well could be possible, all that would need to happen is have some of the falling wood destroy the horizontal pieces of the pig chambers (easier said then done of course).

Is all about destruction luck. Sometimes the pieces falling just get that good momentum and simply melt away fast.

Two bird strat described above by thetoddman23 and angrychicken works really well in the Classics version. Two bird scores are pretty easy to come by with Chuck’s greater strength against wood. Here’s score proof, though I expect it will be beaten when more people play the level.

140812/2 for 1st place using Classics. Both birds as far left as possible. I think a 1-birder might be flukeable.

This score I got was achieved on Classics. Basically what I did was I didn’t aim to the far left, I aimed roughly to the middle of the stack with the first Chuck. Both Chucks I used were flung by using the high arc strategy, one destroying some of the wooden planks leaving a gap room for the second, then finally flinging the second Chuck in the gap going all the way down destroying the wooden planks in the middle. And destroying all the other wooden planks around the area getting more points.

@m-hoaxqueen Congrats on your top score on Mighty Hoax 5-17. It appears to be a Classics score. As you recently became a member of ABN, you may be unaware that whenever a top score is posted, the player is expected to post a comment identifying what strat was used and providing a screenshot to substantiate the score. So far this is the only score you have posted on ABN. If you would like it to remain on the leaderboard, please provide a description of your strat and score proof. This will prevent the score from being flagged for removal.

@admins @m-hoaxqueen entered a top score on Mighty Hoax 5-17 about a year ago with no score proof. The player has only entered this one score on the leaderboard and has not been back to the Nest in a year. Suggest the score be deleted, yes? Thanks.

142626/2 which only had one cracked bit of wood left. I wonder if the top score was a 1-birder. I guess we are not going to find out.
