I got a once-in-a-lifetime shot with a highscore of 95,740.

By Patrick Mahoney

Also got the *once in a lifetime shot*, and scored 106,180!!! Hit the 4th tower near the bottom and they all fall like dominoes! Definitely hold the world record with that one. :)

It works… not 100k+ but enough higher than avg. score

By Scott Elkin

Ok, I guess it isn’t so much “once-in-a-lifetime” anymore – it is just the right way to do it. I took your advice and improved my 95k score to 104970.

I just sent the red bird and hit the left/bottom piece in the right-most column. Then they toppled.

Took about 10 minutes – not too bad.

That is one heck of a tip, I upped my score by over 15000 points and it did not take long to achieve 98060, thank you.

Well I can only seem to get 96k, but thanks to that 96k Im now Number 7 on total score! Thanks everybody!

Oh, sweet! Got it on the fourth try using the bottom of the fourth tower method. Wasn’t getting anywhere before. However, The Leader still has my utmost gratitude and admiration. This site rocks!

I’ve knocked out that left bottom block on the fourth tower at least 100 times and the tower won’t fall. If I use the second bird to ‘help’ it I thought I might sacrifice 10,000 points, but still can’t get past 88,000. Does anyone have a video of this?

By nash

I broke the bottom block a number of times with no luck too, but when I managed to break the block ABOVE it, everything toppled and I scored 100010. More stuff could definitely break, so I’m trying again ;)

By Lilia

I’ve knocked the bottom left and the one above a 100 times – the tower won’t fall! Help!!!!

96940 – Noteworthy because I was stuck at 88,000 and had tried the same strategy 50 times and couldn’t break my score. I took one more shot at it and launched the first bird, walked away from my desk for a second, and when I came back it was adding up the score!! Nice surprise to see it stop at 96940 ;)

i have played this level for about 50 times and still can’t get 3 stars. I do exactly what in the video and came so close at 79900. :(

I think there is something wrong with my version; when I click on 3-1 the episode stars right on, without any intro (like the one at the beginning of 1-1 and after 2-15). Is there any intro or is it just my stupid iphone 4?

1st bird skim top of 1st tower taking it down and hitting 2nd tower low down. It will take out 3rd tower. Blue bird low into last tower, splitting just before impact.

I also noticed that you have to hit both of the bottom front wood blocks to get the tower to actually fall.

@kartflyer thanks for the tip. Those two blocks don’t always like to brake, still working to get into the 100’s, but at least I’m above average. (92580)

By TruckDriver (@truckdriver)Score: 99,260

Getting a high score on this level means using little red on a high arc shot to chop out the lower left support blocks of the tower on the far right, causing the towers to collapse leftward until all four towers have tumbled down. It is a fairly tough shot, as when I tried it, I got fairly complete destruction of the far right tower without the cascading collapse of the others. Thus I sent b/b in a flat arc, just clearing the first tower on the left, into the second tower, not splitting them until just before impact. This brought down the other three towers with enough damage points to get sufficiently above average.

I’ve merged the two strats for my result.

Oh thank you so much TruckDriver, I had given up and skipped it…I’m gonna come back and try this ;-) I too had killed the third tower with no cascading effect…I will be very happy to get a score like yours…I’m glad I’m not alone in the jungle!

I find the monkeys easier to kill than pigs or cages. Sometimes one monkey can be finished with a light hit. Pigs have 3 stages they go through before they die. Cages need a lot of debris to fall on it to open.

Thats true …but these darn monkeys keep wiggling there little legs and jumping back up after I knock them down..I would rather hit a pig…and…the monkeys didnt steal the eggs the pigs did…right? Sooo why are they here…lol!!:)

It depends. Usually, when the monkey is in the middle of getting back up, it dies. And the monkeys were sent by Nigel to capture the birds(according to the movie).

Well I came back as this level and 4-7 were the only ones I need above average in…FINALLY, got it for 93020 and had to use two birds. Trying for assendk method but red bird hit where is was suppose to on bottom left vertical wood pieces of last structure but did not fall, “cascade” down so I then sent bb on the exact same path and split right upon impact and this caused the cascade to the left, got both flowers too which helped get those extra points needed…geez!!!

GRRR!!! I keep taking out that bottom block like y’all have said, but the tower won’t topple over?! This keeps happening over and over and over. Anyone else having this problem?

Did just as was suggest, his the bottom brick on the left tower…

109,240 – After many, many times the tower finally fell the right way after hitting the lower block as suggested. Guess you just have to be patient until you hit the sweet spot. Like many others, the tower doesn’t always fall, even if you hit the lower block of the fourth tower. Just keep trying and eventually it works!

Rank: Explosive with 2090 points
By TomC (@tomc)Score: 105,700

Yep it took me over 30 times breaking the bottom block on the rightmost tower for the tower to finally fall correctly (twice it fell but the cascade stopped with the tower to the left of it). The range of angle that works is probably less than 1 degree, and the tower often just stood still even with the lower block gone. Getting the block above the lowest block on the rightmost tower results in a slightly lower score, the bottom block needs to be destroyed for absolute highest potential score though it’s also possible to destroy both the bottom block and the block above it.

NOT a bottom piece but second from the bottom! That is the secret for high score!

By Chicadee (@chicadee)Score: 97,660

This is one of those levels that makes ABN priceless. The “1 bird” shot that’s required to beat the average score (i.e. hit the bottom block of the 4th tower), is hard enough as it is but like others have said, you can hit it many times and nothing will happen. Like many players, I don’t look at these walkthroughs until I’ve 3 starred the level on my own and then I only look if I’m not pleased with my score. I had tried the shot a few times but gave up, thinking “that doesn’t” work. So I just thought I’d thank all posters who have confirmed that shot can work – sometimes lol.

Thank you :)

After 100 tries at hitting either or both of the two lowest blocks on the left side of the right tower, it has only fallen to the left 3x. None of these resulted in a score higher than what I can get with 2 birds. Launched bb just over first tower and split just b4 impact. This takes out more wood for me and I get a higher score. Would love to get 100,000+ using the method others have touted.
Just not hapnin’ for me. Aargh!

Watched your video and made a one bird solution with the first bird. Did not have to use the second. Must of hit a sweet spot. Landed in the same area on the wood.
