Angry Birds Mighty Hoax 3 Star Walkthrough Level 5-3

Our strategy for Mighty Hoax level 5-3 is to fire the White bird just above the first pair of stone triangles, bombing on its right side. At most, the mustachioed pig within may survive, but the structure should be a pile of rubble. Fire the Red bird into the top of the first hollow stone square, compromising the structure and detonating the TNT. Speed a Yellow bird into the mustachioed pig if necessary. The score in the video below is 84,380.

You can drop a bomb with the first white bird against the leftmost small building, but you have to aim the bird as low as possible and drop its bomb when it has virtually hit the side of the building under the eaves.

If you’re lucky, the bird will come down in the trench and get the pigs there. You’ll still have to use the second bird so there’s no advantage to it, it’s just more elegant.

I used the method from the video, with some added points. Drop the egg bomb between the triangle stone roof of the far building, with luck it takes everything out. Aim next bird at the long stone plank, above the hollow block. This should take all of that out. Two bounce birds left. Good luck!

Got me a 2 birdie as well, but with the same strat as the video on top, so I guess it’s just a matter of luck.

1st bird on the gap in the stone roof and 2nd one meduim-arc to TNT. Just wait until TNT triggers.

Refinement of @sunshine ‘s strat. I tried both in the gap and on the roof but was having trouble getting good results until I paid attention to the long stone plank sticking up vertically from the roof. So I shot a little higher so that the top of the WB was just above where that plank and the left triangular stone meet. I dro the egg in the small gap between the triangular stones. The carcass and bomb took out all but the rightmost structure and the falling debris to the left took out the rest.
1 bird.

@swelld If you were to draw the path of the white creature from the black lagoon on my ipad screen with a marker, I would still not get her to drop the egg on time. The WB hates me and always will.

I really don’t know to whom to give my thanks as this really was a collaborative effort between many here on ABN with your various posts, however since @swelld seems to be the only Challenge comment, I’ll cite him. I got my 1-birder on Android phone for 97580, an improvement of almost 12k with a lucky shot this way:

I despise this WB. On my device it seems the egg often doesn’t drop when I tap, despite the fact I appear to be releasing in enough time & certainly before I hit or bump into a structure. There have been entirely too many times I’ve watched her fly into buildings without releasing her egg. My most hated birds/characters …. Toss up between Matilda aka WB & one of the newest from ABSW, Obi.

GL all, I think I’ll try to break 100k before the Challenge ends.

I managed 96k with 2 birds. Dropped the egg in the gap as usual without remarkable damage, but after sending red to the hollow block, detonating the TNT, the right side collapsed far more than usual, almost completely flattened. Haven’t been able to come close since.

Mighty fine flinging @swelld. I can’t get Matilda to cooperate on a precise egg drop in that little gap between the stone triangles to give me the 1-bird wonder smash…she just isn’t working for me this time. But I did raise my score by 8k with a 2 birder. This level is another that has such a wide range of results for each player; would be nice to know what approach those with over 104k used.

Tried several things before settling on flinging the bird as low as possible into the gap, dropping the egg at the last moment, so that the carcass richochets against the triangle onto the top-right corner of the left structure. This got me 99040 on my Ipad 2. Here’s the picture:
As usual that score was beaten by my own AB-robot-program simultaneously running on my Mac, which got 101900 following the same strategy. Here’s the:

By to mock a mockingbird (@vuelva)

Some more can be found in my post of the 2nd of August in the Angry Birds Leaderboard comments. I’ll be happy to provide further program details but, as written there by birdleader, for that the forum would be a better place (no appropriate thread yet though?).

For the current level I first decided upon the strategy (see above). It was then found during the exploration phase (varying the y-coordinate and the delay randomly, but keeping the x-coordinate fixed to restrict the search space) that releasing the bird at coordinates (50,1156/1157) (fully zoomed out on a (1920,1200) screen) and dropping the egg after a delay of 2250 milliseconds could give 60k+ scores. These parameters were then exploited during 1000 runs to yield 94k, 96k and thrice 97k before getting the 101900 score (three out of four times the bird would not release the egg in time; java is probably not that good for real time programming/getting correct timing in the milliseconds range). Playing the level myself in the meantime on my IPad, I obtained the 99k score more quickly (after an hour and a half; the program then was at 97k), but lacked the time/patience to go for more (was already happy to improve upon my previous 96k score).

By BirdJo (@birdjo)Score: 99,620

@vaporizer, i think it doesn’t have to be a 1-birder. My 92k is a 2-birder while my wife recorded 96k with 1 bird on her laptop. I thought the same at first until i have a (slightly lower) 91k with a 3-birder. There are just so many destructible pieces in this level for higher scores. BTW, we both use the same strat in which to fling White at high arc so it’ll fit between the “garage” and the “house” and release the egg as late as possible (perhaps a little like @eggomaniac described below). I simply don’t have the L-factor as grandpa pig always survive the chaos. Yet… ;)

It has happened twice where on my first shot the white Bird has bounced back and hit and took out the first structure, but both times i done a poor second shot.

rptable 1 Bird.>> LOB into opening in middle ; drop egg 1/2 way down… only 85K but I Like 1 Bding!!

By Bell259

I had to blow up the triangular blocks between the buildings That damaged the large structure and the right side of it fell when the red bird set off the TNT in the wagon. Grandpa pig taken out with the yellow bird. Not a huge score, but enough for 3 stars and another option if the ones above don’t get it.

By extremebirder

I one birded it with this video i dropped bomd right after i passed the garage though and the richochete<badspelling knocked over the house :) the score was only 80k though

By Gail

I can’t get past this level because my birds don’t have the same strength as those in the video. I land my white bird and red bird exactly as shown in the video but nothing smashes like as shown in the video. I have this problem a lot but don’t know why.

The shots in the video are quite precise. Missing by a few pixels can yields drastically different results.

I got better results flinging white bird at a higher angle, this way precision for dropping the bomb seems not so critical. I had less failings (dropped too late) and more destruction on average.

1B. High arch, WB between the two structures. The right one must collapse: its two left vertical beams, one double & one simple, must break, so that the right structure falls on the left one. The car goes… and boum!

@zolb I’ve tried hundreds of times to get your strategy to work to no avail. Heres what it usually looks like after Matilda ( if I can manage to get her big bottom thru that tiny space )

It seems like it could work great, I must be off on the aim a bit or not dropping her bomb at the right moment, but it seems like a great strategy. My current 96k came from a 1 birder, first shot same as e-star, but Matilda bounced back and took out the left structure.

I just retried about 20′ : among 42 shoots with two left vertical beams broken, I got 18 collapses, 5 of them pushing the car:

but only 1 explosion of TNT … but right pig left alive. Keep trying…

@zolb Thanks! I can see this working well… After 8 tries, Matilda (dropping her at the last moment)took out all but the right pig, which I finished off with the little red bird. Even using 2 birds, I increased my score by 5K. I will continue to work on this.
