Hi manu, did you find a one bird solution for this stage?

Nope. I managed to smash the chopper in the house causing a little more destruction than usual no idea what i did different.

86,560.. Hit the helicopter blades and the tail will land on the structure on the far right smashing it, then just use second bird like you did in your video.

Yeah, I definitely have more success if I reverse the order of the bird, from that shown in the video. First yellow bird takes out helicopter and smashes building on the right. Second bird breaks 3 floating sandblocks and does a little more destruction to the pieces of the fallen helicopter.

Trick to launch the first yellow bird at the propeller when the chopper is starting it’s move backwards. This causes the chopper to land on or near the the far right structure.

91980… shot the yellow at the uppermost rock on the sand cloud helicopter goes toward ,got it to lob up after smashing into the rock enough to land on top of the blades ,the chopper was pretty close ,chopper drops ,ideally it will take the house structure out in the process,and you will be left with 1banana eater to the left of the shark,in any case once u get the ricochet working u can end up with a decent score..Good luck…(I have also taken the chopper out of the air by shooting yellow straight up coming down on the umbrella ,but if u have a day job u might find the time spent trying to get that right disconcerting ,best of luck…..

I started out trying to get a one birder using xebic88’s umbrella shot. (I do think it is possible, but I haven’t done it yet.) Strangely, my highest score of 91030 started with the umbrella shot but was a 3 birder. Since the 2nd bird didn’t take everything out and I already had a score of 90 thousand something, I wasn’t really paying that much attention when I halfheartedly threw the 3rd bird, so I really don’t know what happened. I was really surprised.

Oh, thank you so much all of you for the hints! I have been having a hard time getting all of the “banana eaters” (LOL!!). I will definitely try to aim at the chopper blades and see if that helps… Will update with information…

88k-89k strat

1st y/b- High arc to the rotor which is in the rear of the helicopter, which causes the y/b to fall on the right tower’s wooden plank(above the ice blocks) and should finish of the whole right side.

2nd y/b- To the sandblocks, should kill the two monkeys but should follow-on for hitting more debris of the ‘copter.

Basically used this, but was able to get lucky with my yellow bird in a lower arc through the rotor, but still landing on the plank that you describe. Gave 87k :)

Used the same strategy of hitting the tail of the chopper and yellow bird hits the wood on the building below. Then the sand blocks with the second bird. Thanks @iammighty for posting.

Hey Kathy here’s a tip…Aim for chopper blades first but the tip is to wait for it to come forward some…just as the hanging watermelon passes the concrete triangle at the bottom and shoot it, soot it at kind of high arch..not too high so that it’s coming more on a downward angle instead of straight across…this will usuially allow the tail of the helicopter to come down and either push the right structure rightward and/or cause the yellow bird to hit the wood plank by where it meets up by concrete empty square at a good spot to come thru and get that annoying right monkey, then of course second bird to under sand blocks of middle monkey, etc…GL

Haha, I know what you mean – there’s 4 levels for me: 5-6, 5-8, 5-11 and 6-13! What’s really annoying is I know I can get nearly 10k more on 6-13 because I have a great score in the free version. Oh well! :(

The method for this level is to shoot as high as possible and accelerate just before it hits the umbrella. The left side should be cleared here, its not an easy shot but if ur well at aiming its quite repeatable. The extra points are because the yellow bird will stay into the chopper for the next shot! I aim it at 60 degrees then shoot through the propeller and make the yellow bird hit the left top of the house and make the resting yellow bird chop some more wood and ice on the left side.


You got it :)
Needed just 2 tries before the entire left side was down. Then the chopper would finally take the house as well. 87,8 K. Thanks.

Thanks for these videos, @swelld. I think the first one has the most potential for me, but I can’t get that second shot just right :(. I never would have thought of using the umbrella to bounce up like that-very clever!

Okay folks! I think I am going to stop now but I have this level figured out. The key difference between 80k and 90k is those glass blocks that are making up the water. ( kinda way cool homage to JAWS btw). I just happened to knock it out of the park and if I am super ambitious may be able to make it to number one.
My specific strategy is thus:
Immediately on reset launch the YB at approximately a 45 degree angle over the helicopter, hitting at an angle so that the YB goes through the rotor juuuusssttt at the junction of the little piece of wood ( the mast for us rotorheads). The angle needs to miss the triangular wood block inside the helicopter so that it continues on through the tail and hopefully dropping right on the upper right wood corner of the right tower. Can take out the entire right side and most of the helicopter. Sometimes i can go through the rotor a little more flat and knock off the top little end piece of the tail. Usually the helicopter will fall intact but that tail will push the tower over. All is not lost as I was able to get my second highest score due to a great shot through the fallen helicopter and into the glass below.
If it falls sweetly 62- 65K with this bird.
Additionally, The hope is that a great deal of the helicopter beaks apart and falls down in between JAWS and the right structure breaking any remaining debris from the surfing marmoset and weakening the glass.
The way I got this was to ignore aiming at the helicopter directly but trying to get the right angle so that the YB would hit the tower where I wanted. I liken it to shooting or a football timing route in that I am leading the target so that the YB and the helicopter cross paths at the right time.

Shot number two goes of course under the sand platform ( sand is lighter than air?) and is aimed for maximum damage of the remaining debris so that the ice blocks break eg a straight quick shot so that the YB goes long or slightly up and down so that it falls closer.
I had around 90k several times and the score above was from one of the triangular pieces of jaws rolling right breaking glass to the bottom.
This CAN be done in reverse order and it may lead to higher points as the area in front of the tower can be softened up. I just was never able to get the timing right for shot number two to get the tower to fall well.
sorry if the post is lengthy. Mods can clean it up if they like.

I will draw a diagram to show the points and put it up shortly.

Btw I have a JB IPad. I would love to do a video for you guys sometime. Anyone who can tell me the best way MSG me cause I don’t know how.

@swelld, thank you for the detailed strategy & the pics, I’ve found them very helpful even if I can’t get them to work! I haven’t managed to improve my score at all, I just don’t seem to get enough destruction of the helicopter, based on what your photos are showing. But as always I will keep flinging away!
