The best strategy for Poached Eggs level 2-2 is to lob the first Blue bird and split it early enough so to take out the small pig in the top right. After that, lob one or two Blue birds into the heart of the pit, breaking as much ice as possible. The score in the video below is 64,880.
My first bird killed all the pigs in the ice pit, then coincidentally the pig on the diving board fell as well. 75420, 1 bird, ranked 6th in leaderboards
I shot my first bird straight so the diving board fell. I got 70710.
Here’s the video I made.
Similar strat with 23 K after 1rst bird, flatter trajectory – quick trigger. = bottom bird on 1rst duck, top bird on ice cube between the wood. My 2nd bird just willNOT do the damage yours does, 62 K 2 birds 65+K 3 birds. ?I think you could get 75K with all of that 2nd bird action.? [point on tuft of grass below mountain/quick trigger]
the foliage is different in your picture and I can only pull the birds about 1/2 way to the ground, not as far as in your vid. this is like comparing apples and oranges
Hitting this level on my PC, and I will admit, it’s been many months since I played this level, and I always saved the pig on the diving board for last, I don’t know why. I guess I figured that it didn’t make that much difference, but as I found out, I was way off. Used your vid method to get another 6k increase in score.
Thx Estar it’s wonderful to see your videos up again they always make a huge difference in my average thank you!
Thanks for the vid @e-star! Best I’ve done so far is 66,280 but, consistently hitting 65k+ now!
used @e-star‘s vid to get 76k. it is possible to reach top 100 (73k) using a 2 bird strat.
one thing i would like to suggest, shoot 1st bb using a more flatter arc and release it early. you want the bottom two birds to hit ice, and the top one to hit the lone ice cube. 2nd bb, exactly as the vid, just to the right of the 1st duck.
Very nice score @hwong9715!! Thank you for posting your tips, it encouraged me give this level another try and increased my score by 3k!
Oh dear. That should have been @hwong0715
you’re welcome @bonneypattycat. great score =) have a great day.
There is a video showing that if you start this level, reverse your iPod or iPhone or iPad and keep playing, the top pig will roll off the ledge. Is that so? If it is that is one reason why people are getting high scores on this level.
I don’t think reversing the screen makes it fall. Some levels start off having something happen occasionally, like a pig rolling, or an unstable structure falling.
There was a video showing this, but it probably was removed. Thanks kart!
@ Kart Wait! Look at this video. It makes total sense also.
I’m revisiting this level after many,many months & cannot get the top piggy to roll into the pool,with a laughable amount of restarts. This is def how I got my score. Unless my memory fails me I’m sure the pig rolled maybe once every 20 restarts(?). It now seems to roll opposite way! Just wondering if latest update/bug fix has sorted this or has anybody got the pig to roll off recently?. As I said tho it could be my dodgy brain cells!!
i got 73+ K using shooters, not restarts. Just make sure the 1rst bird breaks the single ice cube below the plank.
Ok thanx for that,just wish I could remember how I did these old levels!. Trying now to beat my 72k score but not having much luck! I take it you 2 birdied it with a lot of damage from 2nd bird?
when you split the 1rst bird, the top one hits the ice cube, the bottom 2 birds do damage in the bin,,, can’t remember if it was 1 or 2 B???
Dear eggomaniac, since the pig does not roll to the left anymore your 2 birder with 73K is really excellent. I never was able to repeat my score.
Just improved my score. First bird pretty early split, the uppermost hit ice cube under diving board, the other two broke a lot of ice in the “pool”.
Second one high lob entering the pool just right from the left duck, late split, so all 3 of them went nicely downwards left of the waterball.
I tried this on my iPad, and couldn’t replicate it. It kind of makes me wonder if this is something that Rovio might have fixed.
I seriously just tried the turning deal, and not only does my android version prevent auto screen, the pig actually started slowly rolling AWAY from the edge! I think it’s probably safe to say they may have fixed this:-)
I gave up on this after trying and trying but unable to break all the pigs in the ice pond with a single bird. It’s impossible, even with a seed powerup. Most I got was was 58,000-odd.
Omeg,, 65 1/2 K with 3 birds. 1rst bird was towards the top, back pig. with an early split. top bird hits the little block of ice between the pieces of wood. the bottom 2 roll into the ice. 2nd bird, LOB, can win, but only 62 K,,, got the 65K with a 3rd bird taking out the last pig and LOTS of ice. gonna try E-Stars strat now.
Launched the first blue bird in a high arc towards the pig on the board causing the board to tip over and grey stone to hit the duck below. Just a little different from the video but the same strategy to get the pig.
Launched the second blue bird in towards the center left of the V and activated it very close to the glass cubes. Increased the score 4k.
Strategies for eagle destruction on Chrome:
– Since the eagle bounce is different and it doesn’t touch much, I would use all 4 birds to knock out ad mush glass as you can and land the can near the bottom of the first hill.
I find hitting the ice block under the “diving board” helps knock out some ice in the pool, then launch the 2nd blue bird into the pool and hopefully the concrete block will do some damage as it falls through.
To anyone trying to get the pig on the platform to roll for challenge today – don’t waste any energy on it, lol. That pig starts to roll toward the wall (the unhelpful direction) as soon as the level is opened or reset. EVERY single time and before any bird is thrown. (At least on iPhone.) The good news? @e-star video has me tantalizingly close to a puppy as of 2am. So close… Good luck, all!
three 76k+ scores with current best of 76960/2 in half an hour of playing as e-star in the following variation.
1st) medium high arc, split to get the top bird to the glass underneath the rightmost pig, and the lower bird just clearing the leftmost duck (this all but fixes the trajectory and splitting point); was playing for a 27k+ score, but 29k+ not infrequent. had 30k after the 1st for my best final score:
2nd) high arc, splitting latish (somewhere within the first three celeste-white `ribbons’ in the background) with the leftmost bird leftish of the duck. like this:
the above picture yielded one of the three 76k scores mentioned; for my current best i was just too late to capture the final destruction in the pit, but here’s the screen shot showing at least the final score, (the initial part of) the trajectory, and that it was with 2 birds:
which should be just enough (in fact: the minimal score) to get a puppy for the daily challenge ( @kelani @sweetp ). given that i also scored three 75k+ scores above my previous best of 75090, i would wager that 1) the level was changed a bit and 2) more puppies will follow. good luck.
thx to @vuelva for the great pictures, very helpfull
also thx to @e-star for the fantastic video
first and second bird like the pictures from @vuelva, over 29k with the first
second bird i split very late over the left duck
here a video with not so many points.
you can see there, what i mean
Thanks @vuelva – your brilliant strat with the early split for the second bird improved my score by more than 3K. Still trying to get higher! Got 35970 on one occasion with first bird (only leftmost piggy remaining so almost a 1-birder lol), but messed up with second shot. Congrats!!
now up to 78290/2 by the same strat; still 1 of the glass blocks left and small square wood on top didn’t fall down.
I got lucky early this morning & managed to improve to 76780. It was before comex666 video. To mock a mockingbird was the 1st puppy & I studied those pics however when it came time to split my 2nd bird, the higher split wouldn’t have been aimed to maximize the destruction, so it was a much later split like Comex666. Unfortunately my score was 180 points from a puppy & I never managed 76k again….oh well another Challenge just started & I have lots of room for improvement. Congrats @vuelva, @stocktoad, @comex666 & @chiefbumpa
Thanks to @vuelva for the pictures. Doing it that way got me 76k, but it wasn’t until I looked at @comex66 ‘s video that I finally got to the 77K level. His second shot looks to be farther to the left and is activated later than @vuelva‘s. Doing it that way finally worked. Thanks @comex666 . @kelani @sweetp Here is the screen shot for the puppy. https://www.angrybirdsnest.com/members/stocktoad/album/picture/13503/
Thanks to @e-star and @comex666 for the videos. Fully zoomed out on an iPad 1, I used the following aim and tap points:
B1 – the top of the slingshot pocket is on the larger part of the short drab green plant on the hill just below the transition where the stem goes from large to small with a tap point slightly more than 50% of the way between the rightmost two drab green plants just to the left of the pit structure. If I didn’t have over 30K on B1, I reset. On my highest score, the top BB wedged between the horizontal plank and the wood block in a way that caused the large stone block to fall into the pit and I had slightly more than 33K. You want the center and bottom BB’s to do as much damage as possible on the right side of the pit.
B2 – the bottom/edge of the slingshot pocket lines up with the center of the stem of the leafy plant behind the sling with a tap point about 80-90% through the narrow Light Yellow band above the pit. I varied my aim and tap points based on how much damage there was to the right side from B1.
@santiagore (Masterplant), congrats on your awesome score! However, before we can award you the Underdog Badge, you’ll need to provide a screenshot of your score. Thank you!
Strangely, it’s possible to beat the top score easily with only 1 power potion. That’s what I did (with the second bird)…
Hope you don’t mind me saying, but actually It’s not strange at all @zackvoyager. You can beat the top scores on most any level if you use power-ups such as the power potion. But as the scores don’t count for the leaderboard, it’s a bit of a waste of time if you want to compete seriously with other players. Scores quoted in all threads on all AB games are “pure” – obtained by basic play without PUs – so you can’t ever beat a top score or another player’s scores if you use them. Just thought I should point that out.
@peejaydee27 I know that PU scores don’t count for leaderboards. I was just surprised how far PU scores can beat classic scores !
Ok! I don’t know how much they do, because using them records high scores on the AB levels, which non-PU users don’t like. Happy flinging!
New highscore with same strategy as @vuelva
I only had 28.5K after the first bird, so the second bird aim and split really is the key. I Had 77,100 before current score and there was two ice blocks remaining in the level for 78550, but both were damaged.
This highscore from May 2016 was achieved like the @?e-star video as far as I can remember. The only screenshot I found shows the tally screen:
Line up the sling with the stem of the big plant right left of the sling. Split the birdies right at flight’s highest point. 2nd blue bird just for cleanup. Easy 70k+
the other strategies here are either too irregular or low-scoring
Hey, uh, did they change the high-score requirement for the remake? I just got a three star rank with only 56,000 points.
