Angry Birds Seasons Arctic Eggspedition Level 1-3 Walkthrough

Angry Birds Seasons Arctic Eggspedition level 1-3 was first available on Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013. Our strategy for this level is to send the Blue bird towards the first top pigs, and split midway. Then fling Yellow high through the ropes so that he lands on the angled wood plank holding the boulders to the right. The resulting cascade should clear the remaining pigs. the score in the video below is 128,220.

Just like the video. The key to more points is to have as many of the boulders fall in the water as possible.

Agree with your analysis.
Also there must be lots of points in cutting rope.

Yes, key to points are all boulders in the water and the maximum of rope cut. Found the second one to be the hardest to achieve.

My slightly refined strat so I will mark it in blue
@Mvnla2 Aim the blues at the left first small pig. Split immediately. Ideally the top blue will take out most if not all of the suspended pigs and the ropes.
Shot two. YB approx 45 deg and accelerate at the apex for a flat shot at the top right plank tip between the boulders. YB will flip up after breaking it behind that boulder pile and follow them down.
For high scores all of the boulders must go into the water for debris points.

Again there is a one birder here if you can get the ropes to break in such a way that the sleigh swings into the tower before breaking away. I haven’t managed to get the trajectory for all the top pigs and that too…..yet.

@mvnla2 I had almost the exact same strategy. I shot the second bird straight up to go through the top pig and more of the rope and then hit the plank stuck between the boulders on top. Also, with the blue birds, I found it works best when the pig hanging from the sled sways and actually hits the wood on the first tower to help it collapse. Two birds remain. I don’t think a one birder will get you many more points. Getting the top boulders to fall with the others gave me a lot more points.

You would not believed what just HAPPENED!!!

I was trying to get a highscore and after my first bird was shot, the tree hit the right structure, causing it to fall. There were 2 pigs left however, so the ‘sleigh swinging into the tower’ is possible! I have a picture:

But, here’s the strange part. I cleared the level but did not get enough points, and the level took quite some time to end, I then used the mighty eagle, but when I was about to launch it, the level ended! The victory cheer was playing, and my sardine can was still at the slingshot!

Thanks @lesleyg and @mvnla2!
My recollection of exactly what happened is not that precise (I was too surprised watching the score to take a screenshot), but here is what i remember:
The first shot was nothing spectacular; I
aimed the blues at the left first small pig and split immediately. The first tower was still intact.Points about 35k.

Second shot is the crucial one: YB 45 deg and then accelerate and go for the far right side. YB did not hit the plank directly though, instead YB and the plank flipped and came crashing down with the boulder pile. All boulders came down in a big splash, crushing all debris in the water.

I think the difference this time was the speed at which the boulders fell. If too slow; lower scores.

Good luck everyone!

@mvnla2 I just hit 139k, the difference this time was the sleigh. The 1st few boulders fell on it, sinking it down to the bottom, where I guess all the other boulders kept falling on it & holding it down, it was out of sight as they were falling. It only floated back up to the surface after they had all rolled down. I guess the L-factor comes in, the sleigh landed in a good spot by the edge of the cliff when it dropped from the ropes. Good luck :)

@kathy I think the scoring on this one relies really heavily on impact points, my higher scores have come when all the boulders have come crashing down really quickly. If they just trickle down they don’t bump into each other enough.
I also think it helps if the sleigh takes out the long vertical wood at the side of the tower, but not knock any more of it over so the boulders can be hit from the ones from above. Mind you, I can’t get past 133k so far so I could be completely wrong. ;)

@karen68 you are so right. I notice that even the hats the birds are wearing need to be destroyed. If they float under an icefloat thingy, it seriously makes a difference. I’ve been trying to cut the exact rope that will allow the tree to swing and take out the structure to the right all day with no luck. I came here, hoping for a better strategy than mine, and I see the best scoring player is doing the exact same thing..its about the timing on the splitting of the blue bird as well as the aim. So, I’m gonna go back and keep trying…every bump of an object is so freaking crucial to a decent score! Good Luck to you and everyone playing!!

By swellD (@swelld)Score: 141,050

For all those still flinging.
I finally got a decent score as seeing all those potential points sitting on the hill just kept making me mad. So here’s what I have done.
First bird like @cali_mom ‘s pic. First blue takes out the dangling string by the sling, middle blue grazes the rest and cuts the rope above the first top left pig *and* does not drop the sleigh, and the lower does squat. You want the sleigh to bump the tower but NOT topple it. The sleigh needs to drop straight down and sit between the ice berg and the ice ball.
YB it critical here. There is a seam in snow in the background below the sling. Put the YB nose just touching the seam. Accelerate at the apex so that the YB travels mostly flat just above the suspended parka pig or even through the top of it, to the plank between the boulders. Ideally you want the plank and YB to flip up pushing those boulders down en masse. The best scores happen when they all come down with significant speed. If they trickle down, it won’t cause enough collision damage. And yes they need to hit the sleigh as much as possible. On my current score the sleigh was pinned down by the boulders. 1000’s of flings to get this so far.
Another note, the ropes, while important, are not key here. Each little segment is only worth 50 points, so if you leave a little behind it will not make much difference.

Rank: Boss Hog with 12660 points
By swellD (@swelld)Score: 141,050

One other thing that seems key here is that the parka pig sitting on the boulder pile makes a big difference too. If the YB flips and hits it before the top boulders come down, they hit the top of the stack much harder and thusly impart more impetus to the collapse.

Oooh @swelld that’s exactly what just happened to me!! Couldn’t get past 131k then everything hit just as you describe! Don’t know why but this one has been a tough one for me! Maybe the angles of the flings, anyways I really think the sleigh falling where the rocks came tumbling down all at once with yellow pushing them faster made a huge impact on my score and I had more rope left than the other flings yet got a much higher score!!

By jwgardenwiz (@jwgardenwiz)Score: 136,830

That’s what I observed too. If all of the boulders fall in the same avalanche, the point total is higher because of the increased number of collisions among the stones and the greater number of rotations of individual stones. Watch the score increase when a single boulder rolls. A single boulder isn’t just worth 500 points.

I started the challenge today with a score of 126K which I thought was pretty good, but it turned out the be average. So I started flinging, following the posted strategies. Aiming blue at the first little pig, splitting almost immediately to get most of the rope and the sled. YB gave me the most trouble. I aimed with a 45 degree and then flat into the top right plank between the boulders on top. This time all the boulders did what they have to do, go into the water and give me a top score 138K :-)! Well, at least for now. There is a screen dump in my album.

I have been playing this level for two days, using the same strategy you got your score with. I cant seem to get the YB shot to do much good, even when I hit the wooden board sticking out of the top pile of rocks. I see aiming the YB at 45 degrees for the shot being mentioned by more than one person, it might be where I am going wrong with the points, considering all the pigs and rocks have gone in the water dozens of times and I still can’t break 130,000. Now, off to Google what 45 degrees looks like…as I have forgotten. So much for that Honors Math in high school!

You are absolutely correct IMO. The boulders seem to have a higher breakdown rate if they fall on the sled than simply falling into the water unabated.

Still experimenting with this theory, but whether the sled is upright or knife-edge side facing upward may make a difference.

Another level with inscrutable scoring. I have had all the boulders and rocks go into the water along with a good number of ropes cut and the score was a meager 125,xxx . @bernersenn mentions that it helps when the sled is bombed by falling boulders. I think it also makes a difference how many boulders hit that unbreakable ice ball that floats around. I am guessing here, but maybe the highest scores happen when the sled and the ice ball are correctly positioned so that they get hit the most times. Also….what about that piece of ice that looks like a boat? Does it score more points if it gets hit before it turns over? I have tried hurrying my second shot, but I can’t say that it helps.

@wilee-bird, i agree completely with you. In my opinion I had ‘total destruction’, all boulders and ropes gone and even not able to reach my own (not so very best) score. Mysterious level. Perhaps your idea about hitting the ice ball is key here, yet I don’t know. Perhaps we should wait for the movie of our friend @e-star, probably she will bring us the light.

This level is defintely possible with one bird. If you aim the blue bird as shown in the video, you can get lucky enough to knock down the tower (which I did), and you must get lucky enough to hit the two pigs above the tree.
