Hey I was just wondering, there will be a Golden Pineapple walkthrough?
Most of them are hidden in the crates with the notes , the problem is how to hit them. Also I am missing the location of one of the Pineapples.

Yes, you’ll be able to find them all here, grouped by fruit type.

When is this game coming out to the Droid Market?

Yeah there must be a 1 bird solution that the top 4 scores stumbled upon. I have been trying to get this with 1 bird but no success yet. @angry_jelle

I’ve been keeping an eye on those scores for awhile. They have all been flagged by users, but I personally think it’s doable. What’s you’re opinion?

I think the scores a genuine…It is one of those levels which when you begin you see being unstable for a little while. A collegue of mine said in angry birds original those structures fall every once in a couple of hundred tries without hitting them with any birds…

furthermore, I am getting the feeling the red birds sometimes just plough through more wood when you shoot them fast after the level begins…

Might just be me being paranoid, but the tumbling structure theory comes from my work collegue jjohan, top 3 player of the world in angry birds original.

i think that score is an impossibility. Doing some testing, and destroying almost everything using the max birds yields 54000, though there is just a few pieces left. For this to work, every single brick, board and bird must be hit on the first bird, a very highly impropable feat without cheating.

revisiting this level to improve my score. after a few flings i got a one birder that gave me 75180, i,ve tried to duplicate it for a few hours now without it happening again. my sense is that red skimmed just under the first platform, but i,m not certain. could have been she skimmed the top surface of the platform taking advantage of the speed boost. each tower fell from bouncing debris. slowly.

Definitely possible imo. I’ve cleared all the ‘upper’ cages a couple of times but missed one of the lower cages. A score in the 80Ks is possible, but I don’t know if my technique is same as those who have actually achieved those higher scores.

Got a 1 bird solution but only get me between 71k and 75k. Hit the Yellow bird without touching the wood or crate above. At the correct angle the bird will hit the horizontal piece of wood of tower number two. The piece of wood will shoot straigt to the horizontal piece of wood of number three. Tower three collapse on number 4.

I was able to duplicate this a couple times and it worked as you said except I couldn’t get tower 4 to go down. Not surprising since tower 4 rarely goes down on anything but a direct hit. Score wasn’t that great.

By squ1rrels

So far on this level I have only been able to reach 75490, and been working on trying to get it higher. The method I used was to shoot the first bird at an angle so it skimmed of the top boards of the first tower, and crashed into the second. If skimmed right, it will pull down the board killing the cage on the ground. Since the bird hit the second tower, it will crash down and should kill the second cage on the ground if done right. Now all that is needed is to shoot the 2nd bird into the 3rd tower so that it will fall into the last tower hopefully knocking that bird off.

Did the same strategy. Had to use two birds. Thanks for the post @squ1rrels. Obtained a one bird solution a few times but the scores were less because their was a lot of debris remaining.

There are some wacky physics going on in this level. I’ve witnessed the red bird accelerate wildly after colliding with certain parts of the wooden structures. It’s happened way too many times to be a fluke. I’m guessing the top scores might owe something to those wooden turbo boosters. Aloha.

All I can tell ya is keep trying, it is really a matter of getting a lucky shot, you gotta hit it so the first structure falls forward exactly right yo cause domino effect and damage:( srry gl

Top score!

You can use the ‘self-correcting legs’ to accelerate the bird. If you scratch the big horizontal block of wood on any tower, the ‘spring’ in the legs can push the bird further.

That, and the L-factor makes 84230

I can’t believe it either.

Angriestblackbird has a highscore on 1-15 (and 2-2), but the screenshot he provided clearly shows traces of hacking (as pointed out by woodpecker on the walkthrough page) but honestly, who knows what he has done with everything else?

Aiming RB below legs connection of first stool will give 20.190 with only part of chain survive. Double cage with pinkies must be crashed at this move.

2nd RB aiming look weird. I try to hit tabletop but by missing that point and fly little higher at front of 3 vertical planks or between of them I could produce partialy domino effect. For me it’s look to work different to PC version – maybe I wrongly remember it.

A few tips to get you above average, which should be pretty easy.
Try to destroy the 2 leftmost towers with the first bird. If you only destroy the first (max 20k) then it will be very hard to cause enough damage with the 2nd bird. It is already hard to finish all birds.
The approach with the most points is to go through the middle of the 1st tower, and hope that the bird will hit the 2nd tower with enough power. This is very hard in practice. It is much much easier to skim the top of the 1st tower. The 4 leftmost birds should be killed and you should have approx 33k points.
Aim for the middle of the 3rd tower. Actually same shot that skims the top of the 1st tower. Often the 3rd tower will fall on the 4th. You need only a little luck to reach 74k.
Alternative is to bounce off the remains of the 2nd tower. Will yield another 500-1000 points.

I just scored 84,120 points by basically following the written strategy @xebic88 posted back in 2012. I used his video for inspiration, the part the comes at 1:28, near the end.

Also, @surfcow was right! The red bird does accelerate when it lands on the upper horizontal wood piece of the first tower. After that, it just depends on how the second tower makes the third tower fall onto the last one.
My screenshot shows the red bird trajectory and how much debris was left.


Good luck and happy flinging to all !!!

Thanks to @comex666 for the video which eventually got me 79k. I used BlueStacks Tap Spot x 24.26 and y 70.68 as a guide. Getting the final bird was just pure luck for me. Only hint I can offer is to wait a few seconds to let it settle before releasing the first bird. GL
