Our strategy for Poached Eggs level 3-21 is to loft the first White bird over the main structure, bombing the mustachioed pig and popping the rightmost pig. Lob the first Black bird to land on the two wooden blocks, toppling most of the structure rightward. Use the next White bird to clear a path in the middle, then land the Black bird on top of King Pig. That will teach him not to steal your eggs! The score in the video below is 139,600.
1st w/b- To the right most structure which should kill the first two pigs as you dont later want to waste your one bird just too kill that lone pig.
2nd b/b- To the wooden blocks but such that it penetrates more deeper to topple it all rightwards.
3rd w/b- Use it to clear up any remaining pigs but the king will still be left.
4th b/b- Clearup!
The new videos are coming out, very cool ;-)
nice strat mighty, ty for sharing.
I was just browsing through these new walkthrough pages for any new strategies and found yours. Thanks Mighty! Raised my highscore by 10k almost immediately. Just wondering, has anyone been able to hit the TNT at the bottom?
Still trying but will let you know if possible by some methode.
High-arch the black bird into the pit where the mustached pig is. It cannot glow red until it is in the pit and first hits the mustached pig! The explosion should cause the rocks to hit the TNT w/ enough force to make it explode and kill the king pig.
I did one time, I created a hole to the left of the king, laughed the second bomb bird in, he landed on the floor next to the king. When he exploded, the percussion, went through the floor, which caused the lower tnt to blow up and take everything in that tunnel out.
Good to know. I was wondering how it was possible to get that stuff.
I found it easier to first drop the egg on the two leftmost helmet pigs in a flat angle rather then first going to the two rightmost pigs. This ensures the b/b to go pretty deep and close to the column creating the needed destruction. Third bird then to the right. Forth should land on head of king pig causing the TNT to explode, just like in the vid.
This is pretty much how I improved my score from 124,470 to 140190…I aimed first WB to get two far right pigs and the second bird landed deep into the left side of the wood pieces. Then third bird, same trajectory as previous BB and drop egg..pushes top and middle of structure right..then fourth BB, again same trajectory to get King Pig. I wasn’t able to get bottom tnt…yet…
@lesleyg & @blahalb09, aside from @amslimfordy‘s technique, another way to detonate the TNTs is via a stone from the right-most structure (first bird in slim’s video). A certain precise shot will topple a rectangular stone (possibly the vertical stone to the left of the pig) to the left. It will push another three small stones to detonate the TNTs. I’ve (accidentally) done that twice. My current high score (a 4-birder) isn’t one of those, so 3-birder won’t be too far beyond if you ask me.
1. First White just like slim’s video but with higher result (25k+ – killed 3 right-most pigs, destroyed a thin horizontal stone on top of the right pillar and all but one stone from the right-most structure).
2. First Black like @pointdexter5‘s strat in a way that it sits on top of two thin vertical stones between second and third pig from the left. I managed to kill 4 pigs (left-most 3 and the small one on the square glass up top) this way.
3. Second White to make sure the area around said vertical stones is clear from any debris for our final showdown with the King Pig (and the last pig at its upper right) plus inflicting as much destruction as possible. Unfortunately there was not much as such in my session.
4. Second Black at high-arc, squeezing its way to fit in the gap to the left of the left pillar, making sure it has reached the bottom before detonate. The TNTs exploded, the King has to part with its donuts, the rest of the structure just toppled in all sorts of manner, killing the last pig, and i in the meantime will move on to the next episode… :D
That tnt is the hardest one to detonate.
That level was easy I got 149865 points
Care to include your method?
that is fake!there is no possible way…tell us how you did it cause my score wasn’t that high
Your score is higher than his, according to your boards…
As I said in the Badges and Ranking page, you may comment to earn points, but spamming just for points would only bring you trouble.
Why are you calling it fake , when your score is higher?
by the way..i was being sarcastic!
@kart…lol..on top of this as i am:)
what do you mean?
Haha, teamwork ;)
teamwork did you say that cause me and Kathy are commenting?
What we mean ( as in kartflyer and myself) is that you are demanding proof from someone who has a lower score than yourself.. you are saying mighty eagles score is impoossible when you have already acheived a higher score according to your entry on leaderboards.
i am going to send a screenshot when i get my camera fixed tomorrow
My patience has already run thin. I’m honestly not a fan of your attitude. There are many contradictions with what you have said on this site.
I got 145,570 with a different method.First,throw the White Bird just like in the video.Black Bird the same,but doesn’t damage the first two pigs.Throw White Bird to lay an egg and kill the 2 pigs in front.Black Bird thrown close to King Pig and should break minimum stone blocks.145,570!
White Bird:Bomb two pigs in front.
Black Bird:Land at the pig above the king pig.
White Bird:Bomb the stone above the king pig.
Black Bird:Hit the farthest helmet pig.
White Bird:Bomb King Pig!
I guess I can’t see how to get anywhere near the high here. I need 4 birds for this, and when I reached my score there was not much left in regards to destruction, so this has to be a two or three birder, just can’t figure out how to get that done.
What I did. First white bird over big structure, explode to take out most of right-hand structure. Second bird, black one, high arch to LAN just to the right of the second bird from the left. Should push over left structure enough to kill pig, collapse rest to left. Then another high arch wih black to crack through small leftover structure, land on couch, will take out more structure and explode TNT. 150,600 after over an hour of tries.
Looking for help to get into 160,000 range.
152750 with this strat ty Pointdexter..first try…so you must b on the right track..before this I couldn’t even make average ..ty:) keep trying if ican get that high I am sure you can do way better cuz I stink lol;)
Use the first white bird to take out the 2 left most pigs. Lob the bomb-bird right over the top and down the shaft to the moustache pig. This blows the tnt which blows up the king pig and donut. Use next white bird to take out the (now) 2 left most pigs within the structure. Aim the next bomb-bird into the structure to take out the last 3 pigs in the structure. Fire next white bird into the last pig at the far right of screen. Score 122760 (I play on Acer Iconia tab). I tried the walkthrough method above but my debris never fell right! Thanks
Wow! I have a lot of catching up to do on scores. I finally started entering my original AB Scores – this time on Poached Eggs. I played out most all of AB without thinking about looking for video help. I did 3 Star in all on my own and got some high scores, but not nearly as high as a lot of you. Kudos! Now I need to go back and look at all the walkthroughs on ABN and bring my scores UP. Love this game! :-) Thanks to all for your unique strategies. Fling on Mighty Birders!
133.860 -> 150.850
1st bird: aim for the birds on the left. Kill both and break the plank
2nd bird: high arc right of the wooden walls.
3rd bird: aim for the rightmost pig, and possibly the one down below
4th bird: similar as second bird, a tnt just didn’t go off but 150k was pretty nice :-)
@z0z0, did you know your strat is a 3-birder? I managed to do that several times but with lower results (around 120k – 135k) even with those TNTs explode (courtesy of Black falling all the way down in the gap to the left of left pillar as of my strat in above comment). I must be doing something wrong in replicating your technique.
Man, this community sure is a bunch of AB’s top, top shooters…
@z0z0, i finally got 155k+ with your strat! Still a 4-birder without exploding the TNTs though. Trying to find the way to utilize the strat and reaching the bottom part as well. Another 30k at least down there… ;)
Didn’t achieve a 3 birder yet, but thought about it. Glad you made it happen @birdyo
@Trev17Piano — You have the highest score of anyone I know. Can you please tell us how you did it?
@E-Star Did you ever make a video of this?
@mvnla: I did, but because the video on top has a higher score I never posted this. I only got 132490
here is my video
Hi @e-star, I’ve been trying to replicate your second shot on your video, but my Black Bird just doesn’t exhibit the same oomph as yours and therefore nothing else I do afterwards helps at all, looks like for this level I’m just an unfortunate bystander.
Lob the BB between the end of the structure and the last tower. It will roll down explode take out the TNT and everything underneath plus the king egg thief. I used the other birds as needed to destroy the pigs and all the stone I could to max score. without the king pig buried in the middle the rest was easy. Sorry I don’t recall what where after the 2nd shot but if I can do it anyone can.
I’ve noticed there is a quirk on this level. From time to time the main structure at start often leans off the vertical to the right and this can make it easier to destroy. I have just had this happen. Then fired WB just over the front tower to destroy first two pigs. Then BB straight into the structure destroying it. Last WB to get the far right pig. Four bonus birds resulted in a score of 143k, not quite my high but near.The TNT below did not ignite. Maybe if that goes then a big score is possible!
It’s bad enough to be laughed at by animated pigs, but does King Pig have to give the stink eye also?
Wow, I’m having a heck of a hard time even approaching the scores I see posted above, then again, I’ve been on PE all day raising scores, so I guess my old eyes are telling me to go sleep and tomorrow I’ll try again.
Either I’m completely stupid when it comes to understanding all the descriptions above of different strategies, or I’m totally useless in executing what I’m reading. You all talk about the main structure falling to the right using the black bird either on the wood pieces to the left, or on top of the “next step” of the structure. That way I have a rate of 1 in 5 getting the main structure to fall to the right. Out of those I get the falling structure taking out the rightmost pig once in about ten tries – this gives about 1 in 50 where I get at all with the next white/black combo to get at the king and finishing the level (and my aiming of lobbing the black bird into the king really sucks).
If I instead go the video way, taking out the right side first, I’ve so far NEVER managed to get both the two left birds and the main structure to fall to the right. Which means I’ve never had a chance at trying out my useless lobbing after starting like the video.
I’m not sure if this is how I got my 140k or not now since it was a long time ago, but IIRC I think the way to go is…
1) white bird just over the close battlement and drop the bomb as close to right edge as possible, getting first two pigs
2) black bird lobbed over the top of the center structure and short of right battlement, so that it drops into the gap and onto mustachioed pig. If you barely clip the edge of the rightmost edge of center structure on the way down it ricochets perfecting off the wall and into the bottom area of the level. Actually getting the bomb under the center structure not only takes out the king pig, but improves the destruction of the wood the king pig rests on.
3) drop the next white bird on almost exactly the same path as the black bird in 2) except that you have to barely miss everything in the center structure. It’s a tough shot, but you have to drop the bomb to take out both helmeted pigs on the right and also eliminate the stone slab the exposed pig sits on top of — between it and the column. This removes some of the support for the center structure when it starts to lean in 4).
4) black bomb as deep into the center structure as you can get it and hope you get a great collapse, with tons of damage. When it goes well the right side collapses cleanly into the area where the mustachioed pig started. I’m not sure exactly where the best spot for the black bird is here. It’s so hard to get that far cleanly that experimentation is tough.
A couple tough shots and you have to get lucky, but I think there’s a bigger score than mine out there via that strat.
Like in the video.
I’m verra lucky.
The second bird destroy all….
Sorry, i can explain this in english.
Well @cyprus261 what is your native language? As you have a score that is almost 20 thousand over a great collection of slingers, we would love to hear your strategy. We also have people from all over the world so I’m sure that someone here might speak your native tongue. If all else fails, use google translate to post your description. Or post in your native tongue and we’ll translate it.
@swelld – @cyprus261 is from France and just joined the Nest about 3 months ago so he may not have read/translated the FAQs for leaderboard submissions. It would be nice to see a screenshot of such a wonderful score. I’m having problems seeing where anyone is getting a 2 bird or even 3 bird destruction on this level. Matilda (white bird) is not very good at destroying the bricks.
So @swelld, what was your strategy for getting nearly 159k? I just barely got a 135k so you have over 20k more than my current score…
PS. He did share his strategy, saying he used the video method, but the 2nd bird (1st bomb) took out the rest of the pigs. If true, that is a very lucky shot indeed. ;-)
What I have been working on is a hybrid method of getting both tower pigs and the TNT with the first shot to try and get a two bird score.
1wb to base of right tower dropping egg before impact ricochetting back across to take out left tower pig. Sling angle in approximate 45 degrees. It actually is a decently repeatable shot but getting the TNT with this shot is nearly miraculous.
2 bb high arc to land a: on the wooden block detonating in the center of them manually if TNT is not gone or b: edging a bit closer to land in the small gap between the wood blocks and vertical stone plank. Sometimes with shot 2b you can get all the way next to the lower left column
My current score is a 4 birder with complete destruction of the right side with the first two shots an the left tower and pig got pushed over with the bb and falling debris. I have not found a consistent method of shots that will push me over the 160k barrier and there is not one strat on here from anyone who has, so I am still looking and my hands are cramping from trying.
Thanks @swelld! Those are some very strategic power shots for sure. You are an awesome AB player as always. I never could get 1st WB to bounce back left into the middle section. She would either do the right thing and crop on lower mustache pig and then bounce to hit the right tower pig – or she just flubbed it up totally and missed tower pig. Oh well. I’m happy that I did raise my original score from 121k to nearly 136k. I need to revisit all the original AB worlds now, but my favorites are AB Space and Star Wars I – still figuring out the new SW II Episodes.
hi @swelld, replying to your comment (which i found in my email, but no longer seems to be here at ABN):
i obtained my score finally at 1am (local time, 3 hours before the end of the challenge) after an evening of trying hard. i then immediately uploaded my screenshots, wrote the comment on how i did it, updated my score, and went to bed. since the comment contained several hyperlinks (to the screenshots) it had to be moderated (*) and that apparently took some time (don’t know how long; i was sleeping).
some additional comments on the strategy:
– from the top-scorer’s comment i figured that the main miracle to happen was the total collapse of the middle structure. i spent some time experimenting and finally settled on trying to provoke such collapses by the 2nd shot in my strategy below. some statistics. top-right of middle structure collapse to the right: 1 in 5 (detonating the 2nd earlier/higher gave more such collapses but with less damage). rightmost pillar destroyed: 1 in 3 out of those. nothing gets stuck on the right: 1 in 3 out of those. middle pillar collapse: 3 times in total.
– for some time i tried to get a first as you describe, a high arc to the right tower, but without much luck (a 180k+ two-birder is possible by it i think but requires two miracles), before realising that the top scorer `only’ had had 120k damage, whereas the level contains 150k+ points. hence a 4-bird strategy achieving 130k+ destruction should be fine and i was convinced it was doable. playing for 4 birds instead of 2 made me switch to my current 1st, focussing on total destruction of the left tower (not achieved by my 2nd, which is more to the right than in some other strategies), which i found hard to achieve otherwise (when swapping the 1st and 3rd). reasoning statistically: i hit my current 1st 9 out of 10 times, whereas going for the right tower instead i succeeded only 1 in 3 times in getting good destruction (that makes a big difference when playing for 4 birds anyway, since the main miracle to happen is with the 2nd), with similar amounts of destruction in both cases.
– for people wanting to get 130k+ scores: if the destruction to the right after the 2nd is good, but there’s a lot of debris in the middle making the king pig unreachable, you can still get up to 140k by playing the 3rd as described, taking out the rightmost tower, and then throwing the 4th to the bottom-right (high arc), through remaining debris and detonating it low setting off the tnts and killing the king pig from below.
– to get my score required a lot of persistence and patience, so i was quite happy to finally get this lucky break (hadn’t had lucky breaks thus far this week, getting several minimal (1k) improvements where there was much more (10k) potential).
(*) it could be an idea (@birdleader ?) to always put a comment immediately, but replacing in such a case its contents with a message saying that the comment is awaiting moderation, until moderated (as done e.g. at the bbc site). then others can see this as well, and be patient… . of course, a downside of that is that more of the internal process is made visible, possibly putting it/moderators under (time-)pressure in case people are not patient or do not agree and start commenting on the moderation process etc.
We get A LOT of spam. It’s rather difficult to moderate without some minor inconveniences to the general userbase.
ah, ok. indeed, devising a scheme that’s simple to understand, easy to maintain for you, and user-friendly is hard or may even be impossible (look at all the false positives and negatives email-spam-filters produce).
Usually we are pretty quick with known members. Weekends are just a little slower. :)
@gypsybird see below :-)
I am French, and I write this with the help of Google translation. On this level I think I was especially lucky and I always just done as on the video. But the second shot, everything is chained, rock falls and explosions destroyed everything.
I myself was surprised at such a result.
169k/4. was playing the following variation on/permutation of the strategies above:
1st, bloated to small stone bottom-left stone in left tower (scoring only 1.5k), just to destabilise the tower for the 2nd;
2nd, high arc to the front of the second tower, break through to the right of the helmeted pig and right next to the horizontal stone slab the third pig is sitting on. detonate right next to that stone (maybe a little bit below). intended effect: total destruction of left tower, main structure should collapse to the right, provoked by the top-middle and right part swaying to the right. hope structure crumbles. here’s a picture:
(this shot needs lots of luck; this was my first 105k+ score after the 2nd, but had had several 95k+ scores; often stones get stuck, then try to release them with the 3rd)
3rd) high arc to last tower, activating just in front, as low as possible (in the above picture, the small stone blocked coming as close as i would have liked, so the right tower was not taken out completely as shown in the next screenshot, taken after the 4th; no screenshot after the 3rd since i was busy throwing that 4th before time-out).
4th) high arc to the debris (or pig if it’s still there) in the middle, detonating low so as to set off the tnts below, here’s a picture of the result:
together with 30k bonus for the remaining 3 birds, this yielded a 169k final score:
up from 151k. can’t remember how i got that (2 years ago?). as visible in the screenshots, i had improved only 1k until now, but had missed 160k+ scores twice by failing to take out the rightmost tower/pig with the 3rd bird, and had had tens of 140k+ scores (including 150k+ scores using 5 birds). as is clear from the screenshots 175k+ scores are certainly possible (i probably c/should have done better with the last two birds…).
Thanks @to mock a mockingbird I just increased 7k thanks to this strat. The part of your strat “detonate right next to that stone (maybe a little bit below” intrigues me most of the time the bird seems to either sit on top of the stone or fall through and nether seem to be optimum.
@irbaxter. glad it could help you. to clarify about the 2nd. see the trajectory in the screenshot. the goal is to break through the right part of the long horizontal stone slab above the helmeted pig, then detonate when it is right next to (or slightly below…) the horizontal stone slab to its right (i.e. the one the third pig is sitting on; that is, i do not aim for that one directly but rather just to its left). hope this is clear (sorry for the later response; i only get notified when you use the vuelva tag).
Thank you for posting your strat on this old level that has been an enigma for me ever since I started playing 2 years ago. I actually managed 115 after bird 2. Had a bad 3:rd shot and while cursing myself I forgot about the time out, so my score is actually without the TNT exploding. Still happy.
Thanks @vuelva. Six years later and it took many, many replays but eventually everything fell just like you described for 167K with four birds.
For 140+ 4-birdier goal I found probably a most easy solution for destroying main building without much debris. 1WB drops on 3rd pig, clearing the place for 2BB’s landing right above kingpig’s candie. Its explosion from this spot clears building very well, often along with the right tower. 3WB clears left pigs and finally 4BB drops on king and explodes with tnt detonation.
I was wrong about “easy 140+” – beacuse right tower not fall so “often” after 2BB. Anyway, it is still very easy way to get 130+ within 5-10 minutes.
god how close i was to onebirding it
This level is definitely worth another try in Classics. I used 5 birds and got 168k. First two shots as described by @vuelva : first shot a bloated bird to the bottom left square block of the leftmost tower for around 15k; second shot a very high lob landing to the right of the second helmeted pig breaking through all the way down to the the right side of the lower wooden block. The third shot depends on where debris has fallen in the middle, so just try to get as many points as possible while clearing a path for the fourth shot. Aim the fourth shot to the king pig – a good shot will get a lot of damage points in the middle while getting the pig and setting off the tnt underneath. Fifth shot to take out the pig in the far right tower.
