I found another pineapple on this board….it is directly behind the birds launch pad….little fun trying to get it….

89050: Takes a bit of time, but it’s the lazy way I discovered by accident when I set my phone down…
Aim 1st bird so that it just barely wizzes by the top of cage on the muzzle. If done correctly, the cage on top of the tank should spring off and hit the blue birds in the back, the roof would hit the cage on the middle chain, hook the top cage in the cabin, the cement blocks on the roof would slide down and hit the cage under the muzzle, and all that would be left is the yellow bird in the cabin. I hit it directly with the 2nd bird, but you guys can try hitting the front wheel to get more destruction points.

Yes this works and it does take some time with many trials but worth the extra points.
1) Hit RB above the CPB to preserve him without breaking anything on the Turret.
2) RB will roll back to the CPB unbalancing the Turret causing shaking and sliding.
3) Wait for the top CRB to roll off the back taking out the CBB.
4) The Turret will now flip up to take out the hanging CRB.
5) Again wait while the whole thing wiggles and shakes taking out the Cmulti-B and lots of wood.
6) Accelerate a YB just under the remaining CYB to take it and the CBB out.
?B = “Color” Bird; C?B = Caged “Color” Bird(s)

101060. I tried and tried this way, but finally went back to the front wheel. Same shot to break the fend and wheel, but the shot to break the chains was a little higher. Things just kept falling and breaking. This approach works best for me, as I had several scores over 93K before the big one.

By Lucky Shot

94750, 2 Birds.
1 Bird to make a hole in the upper part of the front wheel, 2. Bird to cut the chains and hit the rear birdcage. My first 100 Times I tried the same approach shown in the guide and never got past 82900.

Huge!!! thanks for this tip. Took my score from 89K to 97K for this tricky level and these extra points took me from 12th to 8th in Game Center’s Smuggler’s Den leaderboard and helped me crack my target score of over 2,450,000 (got 2,451,250)

Think that will do for me now… Cheers :-)

98110 – fire the first bird under the turret and take out the wheel arch, after a little wobbling the whole thing will fall and all you need is a well timed yellow bird to take the two caged birds left – simples..!

After several attempts, got 99,240 w/ this method. But it took things falling just a certain way.

Used the same strategy. Thanks for posting @beer_and_gravy. Have to take out the fender and two of the wood pieces to get the tank to collapse and hopefully destroy everything. Second yellow bird high and into the chains.

The one playing the level in the video is FujiToast . He’s much better than I, so I’d probably give him your phone. That said, he probably won’t give it back. :)

I just played for the first time, it is addictive. So much so, it looks as though I will shell out $4.95 for the rest of the game…
I scored 100130 for this level. I shot the first chain, tipped the tank, then went for the wheels. It then upended and BAM! :)

I got my best score 96550 by hitting first bird at very top of wheel and its crazy fun as so much happened! the whole thing went dangling and and crazy and everything went except the red hanging bird and chain and double blue bird cage and chain, second bird aimed high thru all chains and all chains and birds came down…just did it again and got higher(96690) so going to leaderboard to repost…the first time I was actually aiming to make the “hole” like mentioned above from Lucky shot’s post(thank you) but it did way more than make a hole…again hit it right at the top left of wheel where that little piece of wood is sticking out pointing down and the thin wooden plank!!!

Rank: Sling God with 21285 points
By AngryAdvisor (@lesleyg)Score: 96,690

let me add that if you hit that spot and eveything goes crazy but all is still there and dangling, and nothing broke…it doesnt even matter cause the base is gone now and sometimes its all just kinda still hanging there, go ahead and hit high up through all chains and as they come down everything goes!!! its really cool to see!!!

On PC,there is a glitch.
When you open the level,look at the score.
You haven’t shot any birds yet,right?
There are 70 points on the score.
Why is that?

That happens in quite a few levels. It’s just the structures settling. Not a glitch

By who wants to know?

i got 90080, first i shot the red bird at the cage in the bottom left of the level. next i shot the yellow bird right above the first wheel making the structure totally unstable. then i shot the next yellow bird at the chains and got 1 bird left.

Well….this is a little hard to believe (but true) I watched the video. Aimed about how I thought the video shot was. (I think I actually was a little higher) And… everything fell for a one birder on my first shot. It did take a little bit for the last part to fall so don’t reset or shoot the second bird too soon.

Proof for the underdog. @sweetp

I went back today to try and figure out how I got the one birder. I think this is what happened. The first shot needs to break the hanging cage and land lightly enough on the turret of the tank (at least I think it is supposed to be a tank) to not break any wood. The bird will then roll to the left on the barrel of the gun. Sometimes the red bird in the cage and the box will fall to the right and take out Blu and Jewel’s cage. Like this…..
Here is the rest of the same shot……
Not a one birder, but fairly close. I think on the one birder, all three cement blocks tipped to the left, while here at least one of them went right. Good luck!
