Our strategy for Carnival Upheaval level 8-8 is to lob the Red bird through the pig-shaped balloon and onto the first wooden block. Launch Blu head-on into the left side, leveling the entire structure. Bomb the sand blocks with the White bird to clear the level. The score in the video below is 100,520.

It’s pretty easy to get 100,000 by shooting the first bird almost horizontal and taking out sand and all of left side. Then launch blue bird high to hit second structure up as high on the banner string as possible. I think three birds are required to do enough destruction to get over 100,000.

Just got 99,010 by shooting first bird just high of level
into first monkey and part of the sand at the bottom.
Then shot the second bird high up on first tower to knock
into the second tower. Third bird cleaned up the rest.
Am trying to break 100,000. I agree to think its very possible!!

You can take out the whole first tower, all the monkeys on the
left side, and damage the second tower by waiting until the
green balloon string touches the wood and then fire the first bird
just high of horizontal. Shoot second bird on a high arc to knock
into second tower. Shoot the third bird to hit right where the
sand and concrete are on the bottom. With enough destruction,
100,000+ is possible.

Yes, over 100k is possible, and with two birds only.

100100. Trick is to destroy as much as possible of the left structure, score for red bird should be over 35k with all four marmosets gone. Rest of 100k comes from launching the blue bird high. Do not tap the screen after the blue bird is launch, there seems to be more power on contact, thereby, more destruction.

After three more attempts, upped the score. I think this may be near the limit unless someone figures out how to destroy the green balloon pig that is worth 5k but still only use two birds. Anyone?

after lots of tries I was able to get 108,460 with 2 birds left. it was awesome!Shot red bird low through wood on left structure, whole left went down. also the rope/string or whatever thats attached to the 2nd tower pulled part of it down, I had 41K after 1st bird. then just shot blue bird low into the sand on 2nd tower whole thing went down and I had 88,460 plus my 2 birds left. im excited its my first time having the high score!

I’ve taken a lot of help from this website so since I’m the lucky guy who managed to get the highest score so far on this one, I feel like I should try to give back.

1st bird just above horizontal. After the level starts, wait an extra second for the balloons to swing left. You’ll notice the blue one starts back right slightly before the green one. Fire at that moment and as both balloons go up, the blue one will bump the green one and pop it. The red bird takes out the first 3 sand blocks and the first falling rock takes out the 4th sand block and the whole left structure comes down. It’s a fairly repeatable shot yeilding around 40k with 5 marmosets left on the right side. On my best shot, the rope somehow pulled down the front half of the wood on the right structure as well and yielded 57k with 3 marmosets left. Just dumb luck on that. It left a clear path to the second set of sand blocks (a small window between the unbreakable box and the stone that is the foundation of the left half of the right structure.) A direct hit through that small window into the sand blocks with the blue bird brought down the rest of the right structure. 93750 plus 2 birds left.

It’s possible to get 110K with three birds! Used Sasquatch 519’s strat, but the first bird left the middle pig on the left side – the one on top of the stone slab. The rope was dislodged enough that Blu was able to take out the sand blocks under the right side structure. White to finish by bombing the sand under the left structure. Voila!

This strat works great! Thanks @sasquatch519! I did it with 2 birds, but not quite as good as sasquatch. A couple of comments: I would say the first bird is a little more than “just above horizontal”; needs to hit corner of planks above first monkey. You get a lot ~5K of points for popping pig balloon, so pay attention to when you release 1st bird.

Thanks @sasquatch519 for posting your strategy. Challenging level to play. First bird has to,hit,the corner of where the two pieces of wood meet on the left side and then hope the structure falls. Was not able to get to the sand blocks on the right side, always blocked. Completed the level with two birds.

1st bird hit the strings holding the balloon and 1st monkey. Blu destroyed sand beneath 2nd structure. White bird destroyed sand beneath 2nd structure.

What a fun level!!! There are several methods to get well above average scores! I got my best score by using @sasquatch519 tip above with waiting for the balloons so I was able to get 5K for that and got first strucure with first bird but the banner did not get pulled down so it was in the way for a clear shot to the sand but I sent blue with a high arch over anyway and hit him at top of banner and took all the right monkeys out and got some debris. 2 birds left ;-)
I also got several 102K and 103K scores with this method but sometimes had to use third bird for clean up.

Before seeing this page I had got 102K+ by aiming red bird thru green pig balloon and he lands on break in wood blocks of first structure which gets top monkey, the one below him to the right and pulls the banner out of the way for the next shot and also got middle monkey sitting on boxes as well as the boxes. Then send blue with high arch over to come in at the area there between unbreakable box and sand and took all right side and sand out. The wb to land on wooded plank with first monkey hanging on it which also got the last one just to the right of him and chopped up some sand too. Got several 102K and 103K scores like this.

another super easy way to get 3stars (especially if u r not aiming the highest score n not a good shooter just like myself)
1st bird just aim n pop the green pig ballon. (still would remain 1st tower)
2nd blue bird shoot high arc to reach the base sand of 2nd tower.
3rd bird shoot to reach the base of 1st tower to finish everything.
102,740 with 3birds

I have a slightly different strategy:
Bird #1 – Aim at the green pig balloon. Red will hit the left tower on the vertical wood block above the bottom right marmoset and fall to the right. This will also clear out the marmosets and paper boxes in the middle gap. Hopefully the flag banner will be mostly destroyed, leaving a clear path for the next shot. You should have between 27K+.29K.
Bird #2 – Launch Blu at the bottom of the left tower, where the cement block sits on the sand block. Activate Blu right before impact. The first two columns of sand blocks should be taken out, allowing the tower to collapse straight down, for maximum debris damage. I’ve gotten 72K-75K after this shot.
Bird #3 – Shoot Matilda at the front marmoset. DO NOT drop the egg. She will break through the wood and the sand blocks below, taking out the two marmosets and collapsing the rest of the structure.

Bonus bird = 10K for a total of 108,070. I know there’s more points to obtain, but I’m happy with what I got.

GL all!

Oops, just noticed that my strategy is very similar to @rena1004’s above.

first bird as per video, placement is not hatefully important, but you want most of the flag stringer gone.

second bird high arc – toes just touching sling, to come down into wood just in front of stone blocks, pretty much everything on the left destroyed, with any luck the first marmie on the right structure is out of the way as well.

Third bird low arc, release egg right before impact, blows up most or all of sand for complete destruction. multiple 105s, very repeatable.

now to try sasquatch method
