Here is our walkthrough strategy for Angry Birds Seasons Fairy Hogmother Level 1-20. The score in the video below is 147,850. You can read more about the Fairy Hogmother update and find helpful links here.
This Level has a glitch. To be fair to all players, on whatever platform, the Admins have decided to cap the score at 170,000.
@swanz a great score or a typo? I’m hoping it’s great score and you’ll share your strat….
Not a typo see my picture . One shot . So high as possible on rhe dynamite on the back of the monkey? .boommm.
Woo Hoo! @swanz excellent shooting!
first one straight forward, hit the horizontal red woods and under the tnt then tnt will explode. stella goes to top, around triangle stone. here, boulder must go to cave too, it will give too much point. white one to first tower, there are always 10k-20k around point there. last one to high arc and to cave then clear the cave.
tip : i was hurry with my shots, because level finished already with second one, i sent birds quickly.
This glitch no longer gets a high score. It just clears the board. At least 15 glitchs endured. As mentioned on this board by others,thru the red wood or over the top into the asses TNT box will eventually create the glitch. Unfortunately this is also the best way to get a high enough score to barely scrape by average. Four times I have been wiped clean. Taking a score shot as you get higher is the only solace while enduring this buggy edition. Good luck,I finally got 160000 after 4 hours of non stop flinging.
Here is the score cleared after I made 161000 on a glitch clear. It is actually counting the 3 birds while it is scoring now.That at least is an improvement.
This level seems a little glitchy. I’ve had several instances where I used the first bird to do a high lib onto the TNT and the screen goes into slow motion as things are destroyed. Suddenly, everything is wiped out and I get a very random score, anywhere from 100k to 150k.
And by wiped out, I mean not a single bit of debris is left. It’s happened 3 or 4 times now.
@mcc8206 is correct, this level is very buggy. About 1 in 5 attempts at a straight shot through the red wood will set off the tnt and the the whole lever freezes up. Then all items spontaneously self destruct. I was able to get 195k this way.
everything blowing up:
level tally screen, shows red bird and level completed but does not show New High Score.
I’m playing on iPad Air2
Once after freezing I got 89k, about twenty times everything gone, as shown above, there’s no score shown on the next screen, but little red comes in indicating a high score.
On reopening level previous score lost, not that they’ve been worth saving :-(
Indeed, it is glitchy. I did the high fling, level froze, I went to make a cup of tea and came back to discover that it had finished with a (currently) 2nd place score! Hey ho…
@bikkit love your British “had a cup of tea, hey ho…” post.
I’m nearly singing Jerusalem and making jam …
@hunnybunny , if it’s strawberry jam I’ll have a pot please!
I have overdosed on our national beverage all day but alas it has lost its magical powers re high scores. Ever one to experiment, I’m dusting off the cappuccino machine as I write…
Jam not made, but I have a vintage piccalilli I’m known for my piccalilli!
@hunnybunny I’ll do you a swap for a jar of my notorious pickled onions! Imagine a jar of vinegar filled with brown snooker balls…
Lol @bikkit it’s a deal! Non-Brits have no idea what the heck we’re on about!
Well, some of us do. I ´ve been watching a bit Welsh Open again today.
Hi @hunnybunny. Just had the same happen to me on iPad Air. Screen froze momentarily then advanced “freeze-frame” style. Finally everything exploded and was gone – including my previous high score! Off to join @bikkit for tea and sympathy….
@peejaydee27 I’ve tried this darned level more times than I care to count, for the glitch to work in my favour. Top score before glitch: I remember it well 166990. Although the glitch wiped it out. And the glitch finally worked: got me exactly 1140 points more. Tea and biscuits for me too :-(((
But I see @kathy whine worked WTG girl
Ok, I’ll keep whining and hope to follow @kathy ‘s example! Had lots more freezes so far but no bigger scores yet. The current 200+ top score must be from the glitch, as normal play cannot come anywhere close to that IMO. Better try and get a high score before they fix it :-))
Oops – forgot the “@hunnybunny“
Keep at it @peejaydee27 It took me a few resets, just Patience and Waiting a few minutes sometimes after the freeze to take affect.and c’ mom you gotta Whine properly like this
Wwwwwhhhhhhiiiiiinnnnnneeeeee !! ;) wish I could get lucky with the over 20k score but happy I got what I got!
Hi @kathy and thanks for the encouragement. I usually have a few flings every day, but despite lots of crashes and zeroed scores, no luck so far with the glitch. Actually I’m starting to wonder if it’s worth it? I note that one player has now doubled the previous high score with a massive 308K. although he/she hasn’t put it on the leaderboard yet. So it’s kinda getting into silly season, and the leaderboard for this level will be meaningless for future players once the glitch is fixed.
Is this a big enough whiiiinnneee lol?
Forgot To mention @peejaydee27 see below
@kathy agree with you to a certain extent. but myself can not achive the objective above avg scores,in my case ham dunk 4-2 glitch and pig days 1-13. a desision was made then. yourself lost out to similer situations. so what do you do? accept that rovio are human and get in there while the going is good and that not always the case,some people on older versions, stored in older devices. one way would be to let all uncaged members have a vote on the situation.happy flinging all.@admins
Your right @ixan57 , and yes some will always have an advantage with older versions as you say, I guess it is a matter of getting in while the getting is good as you say I was disappointed I missed the Santa Hat Glitch , but it is what it is and I’ve come to accept that I can only do the best I can.
Good Idea about a vote!
As time goes on and new versions are released there will unfortunately always be those flingers who missed the glitch. :(
Which post are you referring to @ixan57 regarding not being able to enter score?
@peejaydee27 if you read the post he has tried to enter the score and could not because of upper limits. @kathy @admins
@ixan57 I did read the post. If you read my post you will see that I made the comment that he/you had not entered the score yet. I realise that’s because of the upper limit, but sometimes admins raise limits. I wasn’t complaining, and happy for you that you got such a phenomenal secure. But just making the point that glitch scores usually result in the level becoming useless in terms of real competition. Short Fuse golden egg 31 is another example. Top score of 3.7 Million before Rovio totally changed the level. Now even the average (719K) is unattainable.
Thanks @peejaydee27 took text out of context. Apologies. The cap been set at 250k.happy with that. Thanks ixan
Wow 308k !! Yes unfortunately the boards for this episode will become meaningless. Maybe @admins should consider a cap
Yes that whiiiinnneee should do, here’s hoping the AngrybirdsGoddess hears you soon:)
the post above should be here @kathy
On my android tab as well. The view freezes for several seconds and then jumps forward only to freeze again aso. Sounds keep on going. So far haven´t had the patience to wait for the end result since it seems to take several minutes at least. My shot was the high lob to the tnt which at worst produced this glitch twice in a row.
First shot straight ahead,,screen frozen; ( 1 minute wait, not coming back:(
Android tablet also @micromax, I can’t even play this level:(
I’m getting a little annoyed with Rovio. How many levels across AB have had this very same glitch? LOTS, especially in Pig Days. There is simply no excuse. It has rendered Pig Days to be a bad joke on us.
@bonneypattycat and all the others: we have to learn to live with this bugs. I played this game today the first time and had it happen before I got a decent score. At this moment I am above average, not a good score. Then it happened again. I closed the game by pressing the home button on the Ipad (air 2) and closed the game. Restarted it and nothing was ruined. It is just a little workaround to save our scores.
My 196,360 score was a result of the glitch. High arc shot to the TNT and waited for several min. It took several tries before I got a high score.
Had the same ‘freezing’ experience on iPad. I waited for the level to end, bit by bit, ending up with the message “level cleared’ zero stars and a deleted score, also my PU score (which I didn’t use) was zero. By the way it only counted 1 left bird, instead of 3. As soon as a have a decent score, I’m out of here!
Yep, a very glitchy level indeed… I just had it freeze, wipe out everything and then gave me 0 and wiped original high score. :o(
thank you @mcc8206 and @sparty83 was resetting my tablet every time until i saw your posts.192k great thanks. only concern that after being caught out with glitch ham dunk 4-2 and pig days 1-13 (@kathy) unable to obtain above avg scores,similer will happen to late nesters when glitch is sorted, 158kish avg now.will feel guilty if this happens but also feel cheated at competeing against the afore mentioned gliches and minus 34k and 4k respectivly. p.s @hunnybunny off for a bit of tiffin old girl. lol
@ixan57 Thank you for including me in this, I’m happy I got this one, but as you mention there are many others that are no longer, including the Santa Hat glitch which I also missed and there’s a badge for that one:(! PD 1-13 is the worst for me though, and PD 1-2 as there not really ‘glitch levels’ just now impossible to make average:(
@admins not good at technical stuff.need help.got score of 308,880 score to high to enter on leader board. The technical stuff.have taken picture of score and it on my profile page album. The number is 14571719091791282543682.jpg don’the know how to transfer link to this post.can be seen on profile page.it was 1st bird through bottom of hut thing.it went slow motion on hitting donkey. Tnt not active at this stage.also it is usually a long wait but this was about 2min 3min max
@admins 3 public pictures on my album I think?
@ixan57 You can post the link by going to your album, click on the pic then click the third link down ‘text link’ select that and copy by holding on it and selecting the whole thing , then return here, and paste by pressing your screen and a thing should come up saying ‘paste’
I tried to do it for you @ixan57
Hope this works
thanks @kathy you a real gem
Happy to to help @ixan57 :D
@kathy walkthrough 2.34am boottom of page
https://www.angrybirdsnest.com/members/ixan57/album/picture/18286/ a got it now thanks a million @kathy took me a while really chuffed thanks to you.
Took me a year to figure out how to load the avatar. Getting there. Lol.thanks @kathy
Woot Happy to see you figured it out @ixan57 believe me, it took me quite some time to learn how to do these things when I first joined, I’m not good at technical stuff ,lol ABN is not only a great freindly site but also a learning experience with members helping members:) I love it!
@admins still can`t the score on leader board
Sorry @ixan57 but this freak glitch score can’t be allowed.
I got a score of 336700 with this. Is it valid to enter 250000 on the board?
@anton249 don`t see why not. other scores on the leaderboard were obtained by the glitch, so i rounded down my 308k to the max allowed by admins 250k. don`t have a problem with the decision just want there to be a level playing field for all,glitch or no glitch.
c.c. @admins any thoughts on the matter
Wow, I wasn’t sure if it was my phone causing the problems in this level. I’ve shut it off a few times. I HAD a score of 186… Thousand and can’t remember what the last three numbers were but this last freeze “glitch” wiped my entire score away. It went back to 0 and here were two other 0’s under it like I was using power-ups. I shut my phone off again and back on. Didn’t give me my score back. I’m not going t retry my score anymore if what I’m reading is happening to everyone. Because I cannot remember the last three numbers I had after the 186, I’m going to put in 186500. I’m glad it’s not my phone. It’s brand new 6s. Not very impressed with this.
@kathy @peejaydee27 @bernersenn @hunnybunny – or anyone else…do we know if the “High” glitch scores are still available? I am just getting around to finishing the last few levels here…I did get a few “freezes” which at first, I restarted my game as bernersenn mentioned…then after reading the comments here, I tried to wait some of them out but that resulted in the freezing wiping out my scores! I have not yet seen a freeze/glitch that resulted in finishing the level with a score at all, much less higher? I mean correct me if I’m wrong, but it seems that if you are willing to risk your decent non-glitch score, that the glitch…when it decides to cooperate, can give you high scores and not just wipe out scores like I’ve experienced? I was able to finally get 165490 with no glitch…there were a several times that if I sent YB in a high trajectory and directly exploded the tnt, the level would freeze and wipe out my scores as other glitches have done in the past. I am wondering if it is worth risking my good “Above Average ” non-glitch score…? Any comments and replies would be greatly appreciated! :D
Oh forgot to add @ixan57 for help :-)
@lesleyg have left my 308k score as proof. Not played since. If I do will let you know the outcome
Thank you @ixan57 ;-) Did you also experience scores being wiped out with out high scores and then you just ahead and risked it and went with the glitch and and got your 305?
sorry…auto correct got me a few times there…I mean to ask, did you get total score wipe outs too, but also good glitch scores?
@lesleyg it often wiped my score, often glitched without high score, but eventually I got a reasonable total
It’s so boring, though, waiting, waiting, waiting for the darned glitch!
Thank you @hunnybunny for letting me know ;-) I thought that might be the case…perhaps I will come back to this one as I got a pretty good “non-glitch” score after many, many boring flings, tee hee 8-) Perhaps not worth loosing until I have finished many other levels I haven’t got around to yet ;-)Thanks again!
Hi @lesleyg I didn’t notice the glitch. I have to admit that I didn’t play this game when it was released. Ways behind, you know
Hey @lesleyg sorry for the late reply, I’ll check this out when i get home from work :)
I remember when I was here, thinking it didn’t work, but after forever it did. .good luck:)
Thanks @bernersenn and @kathy for your replies ;-)
Yes bernersenn, I SOOOOO understand being wayyyyyyy behind, haha…I think you and I did the same…we saw the freezing glitch thing start to happen and we reset, even hard resets to stop it in it’s tracks as to not loose our scores as most glitched levels that freeze like this have done to us in the past…but apparently, this glitch does that but also decides to work and give high scores! So it’s pretty much a gamble! According to out nice fellow Nesters that replied…it appears it’s still available for us to try. However, like you, I got a 165K+ score so perhaps I won’t risk wiping it out…not yet anyway ;-)
@lesleyg and all the others. After reading your comment, thought “why not”.
These are the results.
Picture #1: score before glitch: Seasons FHM #20 before glitch
Picture #2: score after glitch (score resetted, indicates use of PU, which isn’t):
Seasons FHM #20 after glitch
So, be careful
Been experimenting on this level and not experienced the screen shots (thanks). Must be operating system related. I.e I use android
@lesleyg no only ever got the glitch once. Before that was lucky to get into the 140k’s .will try on a different device and report you any positive findings
Before was resetting when frozen
@lesleyg playing on android and glitch still there
Normal score 148590
1st glitch 181290
2nd glitch 177330 and high score 181290 remained
Note to get glitch score of a higher end it must be done with 1st bird
Thank you so much @ixan57 for taking the time to check it out for me ;-) I see why you went to the Android because now I understand the glitch can either work in your favor and give great scores…or it can decide it doesn’t want to be nice and wipe out your score, haha…I wouldn’t want to loose that 305K score either! Nice job by the way!
Hi @lesleyg. Sorry for not replying sooner but I’m travelling at the moment so haven’t been online. I think my experiences on this were the same as most other players. Had the freeze multiple times but it never resulted in a “glitch score” yet, and didn’t even break 160K. I’ve lost count how many times it wiped out my score, so I’ve been doing screen capture of higher scores just for the record. I’m done trying I think, but if you have more stamina than me, best of luck for a higher score!
Hi @peejaydee27 @lesleyg if going for high glitch score. 1st bird through the bottom red bit of the hut. Now you want freeze as quickly as possible, as all items left on the screen yield score on final blow up: see 5th march 2:34am. The TNT had not exploded, so had more items that gained the points. Happy flinging guys
I must complain – I live in the wonderful city of Bremen ans we are NOT glitchy but very straight Forward and easy going :-)
I think the glitch is gone. At least by iOS
163120 non glitch using all birds. Chuck through the red base, then fire remaining birds fast before level times out. Stella to the pile at the far right. bomb the red wood pile, then OB to the first cave, expanding it at the bottom. I could still get the level to freeze but it never gave me a high score.
First bird into the red building and then to the tnt like many stated above. Played for 2 hours and was able to obtain an above average score.
Did not experience the glitch during the flinging.
low through the left house and hit the tnt
here my video:
like @wrw01 describes, thx
No glitch as of yet. I just hope I get above average without losing my score.
