77130 but with 3 birds, cleared everything

I did this level exactly the same way you did it but I can’t get the score of 73.960. Even if I finish this level with 2 birds.. So unfair! It’s all about luck, not skils.

76890 with three birds. Thanks for your great site!

Talk about a lucky shot.

Even if you clear just about everything on first bird, that big cage on upper right tends to teeter and tease you like it might fall and break. Arghhhhh. Heheh. Tip: first shot with blue birds should break apart such that if you look at background afterwards, the cloud puff should be centered on the ventilation fan. Aloha.

85720 – Took me a long while to finally get this but I got it in one shot at the end. Aim the sling shot such that the black band is almost horizontal and then once you let go try not to split the blue birds into three till the last moment. That’ll clear the whole base sending everything tumbling down.

82770. One bird as well. Same general spot as video. Split bird a little bit before hit. Bottom bird slid quickly across the horizontal ledges and into cardboard boxes to take down that pesky top cage easily.

By birdvictory (@birdvictory)Score: 82,770

It seems as I’m working to up my score that the bottom blue bird actually hits under the vertical wood block into the gap underneath it and then across into the boxes.

I dont know if you’ll be back to this level but can you better describe where your aiming your first shot…i too am trying to improve my scores and i split late and low and cant seem to figure out what “gap” u were referring to? thanx for help

Maybe “space” would be a better word. Small rectangular space under the small vertical wood block.

By AngryAdvisor (@lesleyg)Score: 83,120

alrighty!!! finally…got above average…this was a tough one. Basically I aimed first bb at the little square ice block just above the horizontal wood plank but at the top of the little square ice block where it meets up with the vertical ice block that kind of forms a backwards “L” so that when you split it right as it gets there the bottom bb of split takes out the lowest bb in cage and the and the top bb of split will roll through and take out the red bird cage in middle and the bottom bb of split went on through and rolled into the boxes which caused the top right cage with four birds to tumble down as well. I repeated it several times so I could better describe it for you guys (Kathy ;-)…hope this helps…thats the spot though, the backwards “L”..GL

sorry took so long to get back to you, my hubby wanted to go shopping, lol…Alright let me try better to explain it…its a really hard one, but basically i split it right as it is approaching that backward “L” and its kinda hard to tell what goes where but I know the bottom bb hits the blue bird cage and rolls thru to hit boxes and the top bb hit red bird cage and the middle bb kinda just blends in and also hit where the blue bird cage is/was…the center of the backward “L” is where i aim and split just before it hits.try to aim it so when you split it the bottom bb of split hits the small square ice block of this backwards “L”

You’ll need two ingredients for this one:
– perfect aim. Above the lil’ horizontal woodblock there are a square bolck and a vertical block with a 2:1 ratio. They form a empty right angle at the front. Shoot the blue bird into this angle, split as late as possible;

When you’ve both of these ingredients, the bbs should push eachother into the carboard boxes, and stuff happens

I tried all the strats stated above, and i could only manage under 70k. Then i just shot it n split midway, the bb took off so fast and went through the structure just above that bluebird’s cage and broke all the boxes at far right and scored 84k. Was that just random luck? or a sweet-spot?

73.5K / 3B to clear staff. But 2B 76.770 by another variant. BB to aim low at the ground and floor above. Blue goes clearing the base of glass construction. RB finished with cartons.

Aimed slightly lower than the video and didn’t split until later, one bird takes out the whole mess. You want to hit the 90 degree vertex of the triangle that described.

Lots of different ways to get a 1-birder here. I aimed for the lowest, left ice block, splitting at the last moment so all three birds slid through the bottom of all the ice and most of the bottom boxes, with fairly good results.

I used the same strategy of going for the lowest ice block. All the birds slide to the right side and knock the boxes down.

85k, one bird. When you split blue bird, the key is to get the lowest one to start rolling – aim it to hit the surface on barrels before the ice. It sweeps all the way through the last box and does almost all of the damage.

Here is a picture of my 85410. It’s not the highscore but it gives an idea of how to fling and split this blue friend. the picture shows less points, that’s because the counting wasn’t finished when I captured thr screen. Hope it helps

Looks like I’ve been splitting the blues a bit earlier than @bernersenn, although I’ve a few 80k+ scores splitting in & around the same area. When I scored 87k it was very quick, the whole structure seemed to just collapse straight down, no slow tipping or falling of glass or boxes. There must be a sweet spot in there, I had the fast collapse happen one other time but for only 84k. It’s just hard to see exactly where each of the blues goes.

I improved from 73k to 83k using this same technique, @bernersenn. The blues seem to slide through the structure of glass a bit better going for the 2nd layer. I’ve gotten one of the blues to slide all the way through to the cardboard boxes a few times so far.

I managed to get this score a long time ago and before I found this site. So the memory is not that clear. I seem to remember a single bird aimed low and split late where I managed to get one or two of the blue birds to roll all the way to the boxes and cleared just about everything. Just spent five minutes trying and managed to get in the mid 80’s again with a single bird roll. Sugar and spice
