Our strategy for Angry Birds Seasons Abra-Ca-Bacon level 2-12 is to send the first Blue bird straight ahead, primarily targeting the fourth structure. If it can topple in such a way that the wooden structure becomes compromised, then you’re in pretty good shape. We get lucky and clear everything except for the far-right tower, which is easily sniped with another Blue bird. This is possibly the hardest level in the set, so be patient and keep trying. The score in the video below is 122,750.
This strategy is a bit more repeatable than the one above, but usually yields a slightly lower score. The first shot is consistent when properly executed. The score is 120,250.
Minimum 3-star Score: In the original release (v3.3.0), the 3-star minimum was set at 118,500. We are inquiring with Rovio and assume this was a mistake. We will update the post when we receive more information.
This is the last level I have to complete before having three stars on all levels. It is really difficult…. Have been playing on it for over an hour….
One bird kill – Used the method listed but aimed a bit higher than the video, with the “bottom” bird after the split just hitting the top edge of the angled beam. Everything just happened to fall and got a one-birder.
120960 with one bird…..barely more than I had with two birder. Frustrating.
One birder for me after many hours of trying without benefit of videos and then many hours of trying to duplicate videos. This morning got it with one bird when I looked away as I shot. When I studied the tracking line left by the birdie it looked like I released slightly after and lower than 2nd video. Hardest level of this batch!
What’s necessary to three-star this level? Waving a wand at your phone while saying “abracadabra”? Selling your soul?
what’s necessary to even ONE star this level? I have yet to complete it! I am really frustrated.
Oh no @austinrhl, it has to be “abracaBACON”. But wait! I see that you did 3* it. Kudos! This is one tough piggie level. My last one to 3* and I’m still just over 105k…I can’t get the damage. My blues are very weak in destruction and flight – I think I need to give them some birdie vitamins or maybe some super spinach. Still flinging anyway. I’m digging for my wand now….abracabacon, abracabacon…
This level is frustrating me. 2 days and best I have managed is 115,680 with 2 stars.
Come on the whinge gods please help me out.
Last level to 3 star so that I can finish Abra-ca-bacon.
Any more helpful tips out there please.
This game is about try, make a brake, try again. A period of success is short many times. Don’t kick with the horse. Don’t compete with a Pig in mud wrestling, because you will lose. Change a level and return later. It’s works.
Finally after another 3 days 121870
i tried the powerups. they do more harm than good. actually got LESS points. the best strategy is to whine and cry and perhaps use some colorful metaphors … that finally worked for me.
Colorful metaphors – DEFINITELY the way to go!! However, one needs to be careful in their use, since, on more than one occasion, a particularly trying level has had me loosing strings of vile imprecations, often at high volume. The last time, a driver in a truck parked 3 stalls away from me, walked over to my truck, and asked me to keep it down to a dull roar!!
Around ABN, I’ve taken to calling it the “C” Factor.
This level, even with the “C” Factor still took me nearly a week of attempts just to get it over the threshold for that 3rd star. I’m so relieved that the dreadful saga is over, such that I’m not gonna even concern myself trying to beat the average. Here’s where my score lies, and here’s where it stays!
Perhaps, in a future update, Rovio might tweak this level so it’s not so irritatingly difficult, like they did with ABO Poached Eggs 3-5.
they don’t even have to tweek the level, just make the 3-star score around 115,000 or 116,000
@AMSlimfordy — The video runs through the first bird and destruction, then gives a YouTube video error. Tried it twice.
@mvnla2 The video works for me. The second bird is straightforward – just send it on a 45-degree arc and split a little after the apex so that it knocks down the far tower and cleans up the ice debris on the bouncy pad. Interestingly, the blue juggling pin was not collected in the video, so apparently its points aren’t strictly necessary? Not that I’d know – I still have only one two-star score, never mind three stars.
I’m having no issues with the video @mvnla2.
Don’t know why I’m having so many problems with the videos for this walkthrough. Maybe because every AB fan in the world is watching them. Today both videos were black for the longest time, finally appeared.
3* = 118880. This is weird, because I could swear I had 118??? and only 2*.
Anyway, used the second video. Video and strat finally worked. Thanks @Sal9
I had 118-something and it was only 2 stars. Maybe the limit is between 118 and 119? It’s happened before if I remember correctly.
I had 118K and 2*. I got 118.5 and got 3*. WORST LEVEL EVER!. I even one-birded using method 2, and didn’t get enough points.
I would love to be able to tell you guys how I got the top score on this one. But I was rushing through this update so fast, I forgot to pay attention to what I was doing half of the time.
However, I am 95% sure it was a 1-birder. I am also about 50% sure that there is some instability in this level. Considering I just got the last 4 structures to fall with one shot. When I looked at the first two structures, they were leaning to the left. I know nothing touched them. So, that could possibly be the answer to my score. I will work on this a little further to see if I can increase my percentage of instability.
I haven’t seen much instability from the first two towers, but I have seen the fourth tower sometimes start swaying to the right and occasionally fall over completely. I’m not sure it’s useful, because it doesn’t seem to cause sufficient destruction, but it does happen.
Thanks for the tip on the balloons in the back! Made me look at the video again and finally got 3 stars. 1st BB through the middle of the structure that has the balloons, release in the middle. 2nd BB through most right structure as in video. 12710
Okay, this is what I have for the strat. It was a 1-birder. And I believe a lucky bounce off of some of the bouncy stuff tipped the front two towers over. Fully zoomed in. No Power Ups.
You see in the background where the “main stage” area is. You will see some balloons attached to the top of the left stage post. You want blue to go where the balloons meet the post. You want to split the blue just as it goes over the 2nd structure on the left. This should put all 3 blues hitting the diagonal stone plank on the 4th structure. Let luck take over and hope for the best.
Sorry I can’t be more specific. But this has left me dumbfounded.
Exactly as Ripsy described. There is definitely some instability in the front two towers
@rdnzlrips82 – when you say “where the balloons meet the post”, could you explain this a bit more please? I have a big round thing between the top of the left post and the strings tips that are furthest away from the balloons so I’m a bit confused. Thanks buddy. ;)
@leggy, I believe Ripsy is referring to the balloons in the back ground. Not on any of the actual structure that you aim at.
@sparty83 – thanks for reply. I am looking at the background, but I’m still confused. If you go from the floor upwards, you have a thin rectangular post, the edge of the tent roofing, a big round thing, strings, and then the balloons. Ripsy says “where the balloons meet post”, the post to me is the thin rectangular bit and the balloons/balloon strings don’t touch that part; maybe I’m wrong? ;)
Ripsy (@rdnzirips82) please, please, please tell me you will never use this level for a Challenge!
Not waving but drowning!! Too tired now!
@mumsie42 I can not guarantee any levels being left out of a challenge. But, if it gets confirmed instability/self collapse, it makes this level less likely to be a choice. :D
Well despite never wanting to play this level again you did make it a challenge and by following your strat I increased my score to make it to no.1 on the improved board! Don’t think I have enough will power left to try again!
Second video like: 2B / 130.860 with higher arc. Screen for first shoot: http://angrybir.de/10f5icc.
This frequently cases midle tower gray brick to act backwards and destroy wooden ramp / balcony of 2nd tower. For last shoot avoid to follow vid, go low.
Great tip!! Took a day of trying but got there in the end – thank you
Thank you for this strategy! Played it for a long time with partially success, until suddenly everything fell the right way and gave me a new highscore 134620!
@rdnzlrips82 @austinRHL — Knew Ripsy used an Android, but had to look up what AustinRHL uses, which is apparently also an Android. On iPad, the motion is next to non-existent, as far as I’ve seen. No motion at all from the first 2 towers (closest to the slingshot); stone pieces on top of 4th structure sometimes shift no more than 2 hairs to the right. Think 5th tower shifted a fraction to the left once. All this must be in at least 100 restarts where I was looking for instability, not to mention trying for 3 stars, which I still don’t have. Grrr.
Actually saw 4th tower lean to left. May keep going at the rate ice melts. Don’t know that I have the patience to wait right now.
Twice I’ve one birded this using Ripsy’s method, on iPad. There is definitely instability in the first two towers.
On an interesting note (well only if you’re an AB nut), on my second attempt the wooden tower remained after the back three were demolished by the blue birds, and the first two self destructed.
One blue bird then repeatedly bounced up and down on the purple balloons, or whatever they are, into the bottom of the wooden structure and after about fifteen hits it tumbled too.
@Hunnybunny — Those bounce pads can do a lot of damage, put there is a lot of luck involved. Sometimes skill helps.
@mvnla2 given the comments on this level, luck seems to winning over skill!!!
Hey @amslimfordy.. I think maybe you under-estimated when you said “probably” the hardest, this is most defo the hardest of the set! I can’t even get 3* and until I do, I can’t unlock g.egg #43. :(
Yay, went back and did a one birdie first try!
(Used snowmansapartment video on YouTube for aiming tips!)
Amazing what a little whine can do, lol. :)
I can thank my younger sister for this strategy: (Must be zoomed out to use landmark points) Take the first blue bird pull it back so that it touches the line dividing the two parts of the tree in the background. Split it as it passes the blue balloon. It should destroy all but the leftmost structures. Take those out with a second blue bird.
118k is 3 stars, 117k is two. For me this was the most difficult in all episode to get three stars, finally got it.
Thanks so much for the second video. It only took me about ten minutes to get three stars using that technique. I had gotten a lucky one-birder last night, but it was eighty points short – 117920 (argh!).
Half a day and I don’t know how many restarts for this one. I even had 118k with one bird, at which point I almost gave up! Did it with the second method, and I won’t touch it again soon…
Destroyed everything with two birds, one bird left. 112k. I’d love to tell you what this level is, but I can’t because this site is G-rated.
Still a bit below average, but I finally three starred this. I found it easier, much easier, if I reversed the shots in the second video. By the second video method, I was having a devil of a time with the left side. By going for the left side first, the right side would get nicked and often bump the left side just enough to weaken the stubborn wood section. I also seemed to get a better bounce of the boulder for some reason. Anyway, try the left side first. GL!
Not satisfied with below average score, I returned to try the first video method. 2 hours of flinging with only a few collapses, 114k-116k only. Then it happened! This is a screen shot of the trajectory taken while points were still racking up:
I was aiming to hit just like the video. lowest bird clipping 2nd structure. the other two the 4th. Over and over and over….
I finally got it exactly the same…Finally a one birdie with a good score – 129260! Yippie ;-) I did it the same as the first shot in the first video as you describe. It just finally worked this time. I had several one birdies but the scores were not high enough. I was stuck at 120K for the longest time. So glad to be moving on!
The screenshot is perfect @bonneypattycat! Just past the minimum after a few tries with a 2-birder, but there’s still much room for improvement. And to those still trying, stay persistent and focused. It’s difficult, but achievable! :D
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
I worked via your screen shot and after a zillion attempts got my score.
Nightmarish. Played my battery flat twice. Played until my flinging hand started to go numb and eyes glazed. Finally, finally scored 121,480 on two birds but no idea how I did it, as I’d been going back and forth between the two video strategies as well as doing all kinds of random high parabolic flings. My sympathies to those still stuck.
I’m marking this as an alternate strategy since it’s 1-bird with pics. While it’s only 123,610, for now it’s above average. I certainly hope it helps other frustrated nesters (especially on Android phone as I believe there is a difference.)
In addition to saving so many of you from headaches after banging your heads against the wall, I’m also hoping to prolong the life of your devices, whether iPad, Android phone, etc, as from some of your comments these electronics are meeting their early demise while being thrust against walls, thrown out windows or worse yet, short-circuited when being subjected to Happy Hour beverages as their respective owners drown their sorrows while commiserating.
Here’s the shot trajectory: http://angrybir.de/19Xg7R3
& here’s the Release with an idea of remaining debris: http://angrybir.de/10KbBnS
Wow. That level was an absolute nightmare. I don’t care about my score. Finally got 3 stars thanks to you @justpast40! This was the most helpful strategy for me.
Taking my 3 stars and going away quietly. Don’t care what the high score is and don’t care what the average is.
Step away from the crime scene please – nothing to see here.
@78RPM — My sentiment exactly; well at least until @E-Star posts her videos. I’m still below average on 3 levels in ACB, and haven’t been able to improve.
@mvnla2 with some of these levels, I wonder whyyyy whyyyy did I ever start making the videos… I can’t upload a video under average, so need to fling fling fling… But a couple of ACB levels and the averages are killing me, so I have little hope that my original plan of finishing the videos this weekend will become reality, but who knows, maybe the AB gods are kind to me the next couple of days and I can upload them any time soon.
This is my opening shot. Destroys everything but wood and stone towers usually.
Just aim for leftmost balloons and split where I do… More repeatable for me than the other strats. … If only could capitalize on it!
this one is truly a killer … very frustrating … i tried over 300 times and this is the only level left for the 3-stars …. i reckon this could be one of the hardest ever …. so far the best i got is 117.6K … so close …
tried both methods mentioned but with no luck …. even for a few times, could manage to achieve what the videos above showed but the score was NOT high enough for 3 stars
so i guess i need to keep trying …. thanks all
it seems that i can never get the 3rd tower down ….. so frustrating ….. keep trying ….. :-(
OK…. I was about to sent my ipad flying out the window after 4 days of futile attempts (stuck at 115 two stars). Finaly decided to take a look here. Not much different from wt i tried 100s of times. I focused on the second video. Sent the BB in such a way that when it breaks up , the top birdie goes over the diagonal / stone slab and hits the top of the structure which is second from the right. Two lower birdies hit the diagonal stone slab and tilt it to the right. My SWAG as to wt happened next is as follows: colapsing pieces knock over two vertical stone blocks onto the pink bouncing mattrace. They bounced hitting the horizontal plank so hard that the diagonal wood nudges the second structure from the left.That bounce is beyond lucky… Since its connected to the first with that flags on the wire they both came tumbling to the left (suspected instability issue.) Next thing I know the ticker shows 133620…. Definitely one of the most fkedup levels in AB history. Gd luck repeating that,cause I couldnt. Happy flinging ya all.
I believe we used same strategy – like second video – blue to the fourth tower, only releasing closer to the / stone, and ensuring one bird over the top. The bouncing vertical stones from the 4th tower take out the third (the bounce is definitely repeatable – I had it happen twice.) And your suggestion that the bounce caused the 2nd tower to collapse left sounds reasonable. I thought it was just luck!
Two hours constantly trying. Always with all three blues against the stone of the 4th structure.
Maybe three times the wood of structure three got hit strong enough that something broke.
And then finally, the right structures all fell, e wood got hit and the two front structures fell as well.
I split the blues shortly before the middle curtain got small again, at around the over the boulde, aiming through the ends of the balloons.
Ack. Fuhgeddaboudit. :-) I got a one-birder at one point that was one of the worst scores I’ve had. So I’m going to take this and be happy. Unless I get reeeaaally bored some day.
I finally got this as one-birder with the second video-strategy (130770). With some luck, the bricks will break the wooden structure, and when the wooden structure falls it will cause instability in the left structures and the whole things falls.
was able to 1-bird this one..
first shot like in the top vid, but my high bird hit the top of the middle of the 3 structures on the right..
i was about to shoot a second bird when i saw the 2 left towers beginning to collapse..
spent quite a while on this level..
Different approach for £127k and 1 bird. Fired blue bird at first bouncy thing and split just before hitting. Many times almost nothing is destroyed but very occasionally you can get all pigs with good destruction. Needs a bit of patience though.
Same as video 2. This took awhile.
I scored 125860 when I wrote the first post as a two bird score. Kept trying and I did accomplish a one bird with the current score of 128560 following the second video.
Can you imagine that despite all the strats, comments, pictures and video’s on this page I am not able to reach a one-birder for this one? The level drives me crazy. I can’t even think of how many times I retried. Perhaps that some wining works ;-)
I haven’t read probably half the comments, but that doesn’t matter cause I got luckyluckyLUCKYLUCKYLUCKY. My second try w/ alternate strat got me 120K! I’m satisfied…. for now.
Sorry for all you guys still working on it still; it must be hard now for Thou to Shalt not Covet.
130,370 with 1 Bird, aiming higher at the far right triangle.
Gghh! How admin can post video fast like this, left 3 level for me, waste my few hour and day still cannot get 3 star, 110k now. 2-8 129k. Want wait for more video…
This is going to be my number one “worst level ever”!! So many different places of activating the blues… I tried them all and none of them is consistant enough to keep at it. I am above average and giving up on a good scoring one birdie. I needed two much like the video on top. I got 124700.
Here is my video.
@e-star, you are my HERO (!) Returning to some old episodes trying to get over average, I finally made it with this Video. If you ever make to Germany – Drinks are on me.
