Angry Birds Seasons Ham Dunk Level 4-2 Walkthrough

Here is our strategy for Angry Birds Seasons Ham Dunk All Star Level 4-2. The score in the video below is 127,530. Note, this video below reveals a glitch where the basketball repeatedly bounces through the hoop, obtaining 5,000 points each time.

Badge Alert! – To be eligible for the “Slam Dunk” badge you need to earn at least 163,000 points in this level. Proof in the form of a screenshot is required. Upload your screenshot to your album then leave a comment below while mentioning @admins.

Update: The glitch was fixed after Tropigal Paradise (Seasons v5.1.0). The level was slightly redesigned to prevent the endless hoop.

the glitch works on android?

The glitch is gone on IOS. I am not interested in buying an android to break the average score. Any chance that the average can be recalculated to reflect the scores after the fact???
Unfortunately I need to use power ups to break the average. This is VERY frustrating as the average is incorporating a function which is NO LONGER AVAILABLE. Thank you very much

What a horrible level!! Took me 4 days to manage to get 3 stars without the stupid glitch which isn’t happening on my phone. The score required for 3 stars is waaaay too high for the level…

But then…. While I was still irritated with this one, I ended up advancing to 4-9 last night. ANOTHER ONE????

My ultimate nemesis Angry Birds level, Seasons Abra-ca-bacon 2-8 have been dethroned now….

@luca-montani74 First of all Welcome to the Nest! Your score and image in your album do make you eligible for the badge yes, but it is custom to at least enter the scores of the episode before claiming the badge. So could you do that first and give us a @mention when you are ready?

No need to be sorry @luca-montani74 I can totally understand the overwhelmingness (probably not a word LOL) of the Nest when first signing up. My bad for not explaining about the Leaderboards and scores that need to be entered. In your account menu (click on your name at the top right corner of the page) you will find “my boards”. These are all the available leaderboards here in the Nest, where you can enter your score per level. This way you will be able to see (after refreshing the page) which position your score holds to all the other Nesters that have entered their scores. So to enter your scores for the episode of Ham Dunk, which we would love to see when handing out this badge, just go to the Angry Birds Seasons section and choose the Ham Dunk episode. Just fill out the scores (no Power Up scores, those aren’t allowed in most of the Angry Birds Leaderboards here in the Nest) you have obtained playing the levels in this episode. Note: the levels with a glitch such as these often have a cap on them to keep the competition fair for those that aren’t able to obtain such amazing good scores)

Hope this gets you on your way and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask or send a PM!

@peter-fanning just curious… looking at your screenshot, it looks like you have the updated version (stairs on the left side are gone and the platform is underneath the hoop to prevent the infinite bounce) Did you get the glitch before or after updating to the new version with TroPIGal? Just in case other Nesters want to try and obtain the badge in the future. Thanks in advance for any info you can give!

@admins – in addition to fixing the glitch, they lowered 3-star threshold, so the level can be 3-starred now without the glitch. The threshold is now 90k ( 89k is 2 stars, 90k is 3 stars).

@e-star – I see you were able to initiate the glitch for long enough to get a score above 163k. I wasn’t so fortunate. I spent a lot of time on this, but couldn’t get it going. The best I got was 132k, and the glitch part was so short I didn’t really get to enjoy watching it. :) Oh well… I still have the old version of the app on my old iPad, so I might try some more, but I doubt it is going to work.

Here is a strategy for a 3 star. First and second birds exactly as video. Basketball bounces up and rolls backwards for 5000. NO Glitch. Follow trail (white dots) and drop second egg bomb just a smidgen off of same point so second bird accelerates over to hoop on right side. Explode 3rd bird in debris to remove and leaves 10000 on 4th bird.

This created 91730 I USED A SIMILIAR TECHNIGUE ONLY TO SEE HOW HIGH I COULD GET USING POWER UPS. I GOT 112090.

Thank you.

@admins, need to get some clarification on this level.
After the fix of this glitch; would it be correct to say there is no way to possibly score higher of the 163k for slam dunk badge?

I have only gotten 96k so far, cleared everything plus some baskets.
If higher score for top 100 on the leaderboard or to even to get average score is possible, I will continue trying.
But if it is an impossible feat, don’t want to continue to waste time on something that will not happened.

I am guessing this is like the Santa hat glitch? If you missed out, too bad?
Does anyone know what might be the max score for this level without the glitch?

By Angrychicken (@angrychicken)Score: 163,000

There is no way to score above 133K (the average) now. I believe the highest that was achieved without the glitch is around 105K but even that may have been with an extra slam dunk at the bottom left. Sorry to say it but yes, you missed out.

Rank: Sling God with 26055 points
By sal9 (@sal9)

@diannas That is correct, and the average is higher than it should be due to the high number of scores above 115k. I’d say any score above 115k benefited to some extend from the “anomaly”.

I never updated because of all the problems reported for iPhone 5 – crashes, app not opening, scores disappearing, etc. the one upside is that I should be able to take advantage of the glitch. I’ve only been trying for about 15 minutes but managed to see about 3-4 extra bounces, giving me a total score just above 100k but only 2 stars. Here’s the problem as I see it – inn order to get three stars in the original (with glitch) release I MUST activate the glitch in order to get three stars. Does anyone know what the original 3 star threshold was? I’m sorry but I just don’t have it in me to read 290 comments. Until Rovio fixes the bigger issues in Seasons I’ll be keeping the old version which clearly has its own good and bad issues. Thanks!

@sglouk Congrats on Slam Dunk. Can you explain how Nox and Titanium work. If lengthy maybe in a private message so as not to clutter the walk thru. I would be interested in learning about these.

@gumby
It is not very long to explain and other flingers might be interested in this, so I post it here publicly instead of sending you a private message.

Nox is an Android emulator that works at least on PC (I did not check wether it also works for Mac). I use that one since I got a new laptop as Bluestacks never installed successfully on it. Whichever emulator you have (as long as you can install it, it does not matter), it is simpler if you have an App that upgrades and downgrades any other app in a smooth way. Titanium backup does the job. You need to purchase the full version, I think, as it removes some limitations of the free version, but maybe you can do it with the free version. Since I have the full version, I cannot tell for sure.

Assuming that you have the full version, then you need:
* to save your ABS current version with Titanium backup
* uninstal your current ABS version
* find on the Net the old version you are interested in (5.0.0 for the Slam Dunk badge, but some others are useful, for example to benefit from the Santa hat glitch). I do not post any link here since it may be illegal to put old versions for free on the Internet, however, since you have purchased legally your own version, it is OK, I believe, to fetch an old version.
* install this old version
* use titanium backup to put on your brand new version the data from your previous save (select “data only”, since you want to use old version you just installed with your latest score file you have saved previously)
* play the old version in order to get what you wanted to, and, in this case, purchase the NBA extra levels that are no longer available on current version
* In case you want, save the old version with titanium backup exactly in the same way you did previously (you probably need the full version for this as the free version allows to make only one save per app)
* once you are done, reinstall your current version instead of the old one (app only, this time, NOT data!) with titanium backup

Then, it should be OK. Of course, such procedure can be done only after you saved manually your highscores.lua and settings.lua files, so that you are sure you cannot lose anything.

There are many different versions that seem useful for ABS (I am a newcomer here, so I cannot tell much more), see the thread about levels having become easier or harder with time: https://www.angrybirdsnest.com/forums/topic/seasons-just-got-easier/

I hope this can help.
