I had to comment as I made one of my few top scores. I threw the bird under the structure and came up underneath. I don’t remember exactly where.

One bird underwater to come up just right of underwater block structure.
Speed boos into center of pig structure.
Bird and TNT should destroy everything.
Not much debris left at 124K.

Got the update this morning. I sent YB under water too and tapped so he flew up to middle. That knocked every piece in water, wiping out most all debris. Still a range for points in this one.

@AMSlimfordy @bird leader @sal9– just a heads up regarding the statement “These levels are released daily at 12AM PST”

As this is an advent calendar style update, for which Rovio will be releasing one level per day for 25 days throughout December, I think perhaps this statement will be a little misleading as it stands for any members who are not familiar with this style of episode, since level 2 will ‘not’ be released tomorrow as the statement implies, but will instead open at 12AM PST on Dec 2, this being on account of the Dec 1 level (level 1) being released ‘before’ Dec 1.
Also confirmed by a countdown style clock when you click on level 2, mine was showing ”next level in 58hrs 7mins 6 secs” when I last clicked on it.

Thanks in advance. ;)

There are 2 ways to 1 bird this level. first and easiest is to go underwater and hit the snow support. Everything usually collapses. Second way is to hit the tnt from the front through the first bird. I’ve had better scores and success using the first method so far.

@howie-k, I agree that underwater is producing the higher scores. My best so far is 126180 on Android phone

I have noticed that at least for me on my device, aiming down to just barely miss the glacier so that when the YB surfaces it hits the snow pile in the middle on which the stone square is sitting seems to produce better scores. Of course as the YB surfaces, trying to miss the underwater obstacle takes some practice. I’ve not been able to score another 126k.

I just got my current high score of 126,930 by going underwater with the first bird & coming up into the lower left corner of the hollow concrete block at the far right bottom of structure. The bird bounced left through the snow under the two thick, vertical wood pieces & into the long thin vertical wood piece to the left of them. This brought the entire structure crashing down. Happy flinging !!

I noticed the stove explodes as well as the obvious TNT does. I haven’t tried coming at the pigs from underneath, coming out of the water, but I did manage to get the golden egg that way, but not how I’d planned. What got the egg was a wooden board that fell into the water, slipped under the rocks, and when surfacing it rocked, then flipped the iceberg the egg is sitting on, spilling it into the water. I have not been able to duplicate it.

Hi @kimmiecv thank you. Yes I think it all has do do with the destruction, number of hits something takes before it is destroyed. We had a long discussion about this a few days ago. I forget who it was, but someone explained it pretty well. I have been doing better since I targeted the wood area on the middle right-hand side. @abcrazy, I recommend trying that as YB comes up from the water. Don’t hit the snow, hit the wood.

Rank: Master Slinger with 5325 points
By ABcrazy (@abcrazy)Score: 127,570

Thanks @steinbird I agree it does seem to rack up more points based on how much yb bounces into stuff in the water. Blowing things up as much as possible above the water has consistently given me the lower scores. It does seem like no points are given for stuff flying off screen.

There seems to be some magical mystery points in this one. I’ve gotten as low as 117k with only 2 sticks left floating, and as high as 126+k with only one tiny square left floating. The lower scores seem to happen when most of the stuff gets blown up above the water. I haven’t really figured out where the bonus 5+k comes from yet.

I see the same thing and I think what is happening is that debris sinks to the bottom and doesn’t get blown up. I saw one of the hats floating up and then the level ended, so I definitely missed those points. The wood floats but the metal doesn’t.

I can’t believe I still have the Top Score ;-) I played a few times this morning as I have family in town and wasn’t able to play again all day!!! So just incase I remain in the Top Spot for the Challenge, here’s my screenshot:

http://angrybir.de/1baSLHt

As for the strat, I just sent YB in so that he goes through the north pole and through the left edge of the middle floating ice berg then tapped him so that he sped up and through the snow square piece in the bottom middle of the structure, then he went straight through the rightmost pig in the head warmer hat. The tnt tilted to the right and blew up a lot of the debris while the rest of it broke up and demolished under water.

As others have mentioned above, it is a mystery in how the “debris” calculates for more points sometimes. GL everyone ;-)))

By toof (@toof)Score: 128,000

The mystery points are not that mysterious. The really high scores are only possible when the ‘heavy’ debris (some call it metal, others call it stone) is blown up by the tnt or the stove. If it’s not blown up it will sink and not generate points.

Been flinging the same under water bird all day now and can’t get above 126550, maybe I should try the iPhone as well. Did notice if the top piggie is trown of the screen (to the right) it doesn’t give me the 5k!? Thought they fixed that glitch way back when… Guess not :/

Just in case anyone wonders, No videos from me right away. Mainly because I see the strat we use is all the same and help is already arrived ;) this way I can practice my shots some more and try different things and come back when all of this is done. Happy advent all of you! See you again tomorrow ;)

E-Star, I play on iPad too and have hit the ceiling at a score of 126k also. I’ve done it a few times but cannot get any higher. As for the missing 5k, I noticed that a pig off-screen didn’t seem to score. That is, I only had scores ~118k with minimal debris remaining, but I thought that I just missed something.

I used same underwater attack strategy as the walkthrough except I accelerated immediately while YB is still in the sling. It semed to give me higher scores than accelerating once YB has bottomed out.

@E-star I was wondering if I was imagining things, that I wasn’t getting the 5k for the wee pig being thrown off screen. Glad others are seeing it too. And I also can’t top 126k on my ipad, but it must be possible, I’m pretty sure that’s what @lesleyg uses & she’s tops on this one! See ya tomorrow :)

E-Star, I finally passed 127k. I am almost positive that pigs that leave the screen are not counted. This happens frequently with the small pig on the exploding stove. I watched pretty closely when the stove detonated – launching the pig to the right – and did not see any 5k increment in the score.

That was an excellent video, @e-star. It shows how important the TNT blast is to send everything to the left. If the TNT falls too far to the right, there is not enough destruction, and stuff gets left on the island. It’s like a K-Mart Blue Light Christmas Special! Everything must go! P.S. Nice score!

Ok, so I managed to get 93k before the left over birds were added up using the strategy above, but when the left over birds were being added up, a pile of rubble with about 12 pieces of wood was still standing. If each piece is 500 points, that is 6k more points, which adds up to 129k at the end. Also, if you want to get around 125,000-126,000, do what Toof said above, make sure you blow up the stone before it sinks. One more thing I did…try to aim the yellow bird so that it hits the snow block holding the stone, which holds up the tnt, not the middle snow block.

Just to note… i don’t have a good score (less than 120k) and i still got 3 stars. In fact, i have low scores in all of the levels and i have three stars (low is compared to averages and high scores) and of course, levels as in the available ones. Just posting here to give you an alert, because this episode seems like a tough one to get the exact number for getting 3 stars due to the low scores required.

Watch the video. Start when flood is max up, take shorter slingshoot tension – not to the screen border. There wiil be starting sweet spot.
