Angry Birds Seasons Ham’o’ween Level 1-8 Walkthrough

Ham’o’ween level 1-8 is a bit difficult. Our strategy is to lob the White bird into the main structure, timing the egg-drop so that the White bird ricochets into the stone arm holding the boulder and pumpkin. The explosion from the pumpkin should shoot both the boulder and the pebble to the right, causing significant damage. With some luck, the top-right structure will fall from the pebble’s impact. Fire the Orange bird so that it comes to rest just right of the small pig in the middle. The expansion should clear the level. The score in the video below is 103,210.

High score strat: first shot like in the video above. The best attempts are those that can collapse the structure that is holding the right most skeleton up and/or send the small stone to the right of the black lantern over the top of the aforementioned structure and roll down to hit the far right TNT. Out of the two of these the later is the most important to getting a high score as the structure that the right most skeleton is hanging off can be collapsed with the second shot if it isn’t taken out with the first. Second shot is a little lower than in the video and lands just above and to the right of the orange lantern that resides in the ditch over the left-hand-side of the level. This means that when you activate the orange bird it will break the lantern if you didn’t get it with the white bird on your first shot. The imperative part of this shot is to aim to near some of the stone debris that will inevitably be left over from your first shot in the area described. What you want is for the debris to be fired off to the right and either collapse the right structure or cause more damage to whatever is left over from its collapse in your first shot. I found this level one of the more annoying to get a really high score on just because of the nature of the falling debris and how this can cause huge variations in your score after the first shot. Following this strat I manage 114.5K.

—–Streamlined Version (aka for Kathy)—–

Bird 1: Low arc just clearing small stone square. Activate when just below stone platform holding black jack-o-lantern so that the white bird slams into this platform sending either the large boulder to topple the upper right structure or the small stone over the top of the upper right structure and down to strike the lower right TNT (the later being the preference but both being great also :P ).
Bird 2: Just up and to the right of the lower-left orange jack-o-lantern (if it is still alive after shot 1). The key here is to shoot off the debris from the first shot into the upper right structure to collapse it or to cause more damage to what is left of it if it has already collapsed. Also this shot should break the orange jack-o-lantern if it is still alive.
Bird 3: 10K points.

I appreciate all the effort you have gone through to detail these bird by bird insructions very helpful, but a little to detailed, kinda hard to read, your tips are very helpful, but maybe you could steamline a little bit.ty for your help I think you are onto a great walkthroughjust a little easier to read would be cool

Ive found all of your strategies inciteful, usually dead on.

I think the problem some people have with your strategies, is that they tend to be hard to read. I disagree that they are too verbose… More info is usually better. Rather I think the problem is more accurately relates to your formatting.

You didn’t ask, but breaking up your long paragraphs into separate sections, or even line breaks, would make them easier to understand.

For example:
High score strat:
Bird 1- just like video except…
—- what you want to happen is A. Right structure to fall… Or B. …TNT to explode. B is preferable to A because….

Bird 2- you get the idea.

This way people can use their eyes to jump to the place they are stuck on. It also allows your readers to digest smaller bits at a time.

Thank you @natureswrath for your excellent write up and the posting of your strategy. Worked well and got lucky with the second bird with the destruction on the right side. The challenge with this level is with the second bird and placing it in the correct spot on the right side to activate the tnt and stones.

1-8, 110300 w/2 shots.. 1st shot- A low trajectory by the white bird into the first gap under the black pumpkin. When detonated, the egg bomb drop must have max collateral below and on separation the w/b must then hit the *tiny wooden block* under the black pumpkin’s base. With luck you should have a very good opening shot.. 2nd shot- A high arching orange bird over the black square (now less the blk pumpkin) and into the far right gap detonating along side the erected structure to not only destroy it but that hopefully some falling debris detonates the TNT and takes out the very well protected pig at the bottom right.. This is only an alternative strat with hopefully some good results. Good luck, thx..

I scored 107920 and 3 stars with only 1 bird! I did the low trajectory with the 1st bird. I aimed so that the white bird would go straight into the black pumpkin after dropping its egg. I had been trying all the techniques in this thread and couldn’t get it right. Then, all of a sudden I did this. Awesome! What a relief.

1st aimed down and release egg so mamma bird continues to top black pumpkin, let it explode, continues to clip boulder, boulder gets the mount of the structure where the right skeleton is hanging and mamma bird falls down to back TNT.
68k after that. (had up to 71k)
2nd o/b aimed middle height to get thru front vertical plank and continue to rest right to the orange pumpkin. Inflate (automatically) got the left skeleton and good fall of debris.
Happy shooting.

I used this way to improve my score but that 1st shot is tough, a lot of things have to happen just right & they rarely did for me. It’s often worth flinging the 2nd bird even without an ideal 1st shot, as when OB expands random debris gets thrown around which can help out.
When I scored 120k I managed to get the white bird to roll down to the TNT but the right structure with the hanging skeleton didn’t collapse, but flying debris from the 2nd shot brought it down.
@angrygrx thank you for posting the strat!

Wow, I shot for hours following trying a lot of strategies, not exceeding 115k points. Then, at once, loosely following AngryGRX’s strategy I got 124,040.

With first shot wb mama rolled down the right structure and exploded the tnt. Note: after this shot the right top structure was still in tact.

2nd shot, ob through the left structure such that the more or less vertical plank is bisected. I waited for the bird to inflate and the debris took out the top right structure and a lot more.

Important lesson here is that even a not so good 1st shot may still lead to avery nice result, as the inflation behavior of ob is quite unpredictable.

So keep shooting, it will pay out.

I guess the crucial thing is that something hits the tnt at first shot. Might it be some debris or mamma bird herself.

indeed Trishohara. You should have at least 65k after first shot.
Then, 2nd, make it to land/rest right of the first big pumpkin. You can practice this shot even if the 1st one was messy.
Good luck

Used a combination of the above strats on this one. 1st bird as per the video, but the elevated structure that supported the right skeleton did not fall.
2nd bird – a big thank you to @marc987 for his suggestion to arc orange bird over the platform into the gap on the right. When it expanded debris from the elevated platform went right & set off the TNT to help clear out the rest of the pigs.
To beat the average you must detonate the TNT, something I was having no luck doing, & get the jackolanterns. I was sitting at 106k for so long & after hours of flinging was ready to give up on ever getting above average, until this finally worked for me. Very tricky level.

By smonard88 (@smonard88)Score: 112,300

I found that if I lofted the first bird with a high arc and dropped the egg so he recoiled into the black pumpkin, I stood a much better chance of setting off the TNT. Seond shot was to send the OB just to the right of the front pumpkin (for 3K) and last one/two pig(s).

That level is the last one that is left… No matter what I do I can’t get the third star… Watching this video made me sad and angry because I had succeded the score of 102.740 and coudn’t help but compare your score………

I had a heck of a time trying to reach the dynamite with the methods suggested here, and it occurred to me that it was more important to have a clear path for the orange bird than to do a lot of destruction with the white bird. So for those of you struggling with this level, give this strat a shot:

Fling the first bird as high and far as you can. She should bounce off the top boulder and roll down the right, hitting the TNT. This will cause minimal damage. Then, fire the next bird straight through the wooden structure on the left, and expand right as he reaches the concrete. This has the potential to completely clear the level (including all pumpkins) and rack up some decent points. My high is 117,100.

I shot the white bird with a low arc aiming for the gap underneath the stone beam the black pumpkin is sitting on. Activating the bird where the bird enters the “gap” of the stone beam and the wooden vertical beam below. This took ook a large portion of the left side. The second bird I send in a low arc as well and it landed in the pit where the small pig on the orange pumpkin is sitting on. I got very lucky with a little stone landing on the TNT on the right and everything crumbled down. One bird left and a score of 118430.

This was one of the more difficult levels I’ve encountered in HoW. During this revisit, I used a combination of two strategies above.
1st Bird just like in @e-star‘s video above, low arc over the stone cube.
2nd Bird as @marc987 described, going over the floating rock dropping into the gap, then manually inflating OB when it was next to the hollow wood block.

Stone pebble rolled down and detonated the TNT, causing the black pumpkin to explode. With all the debris damage and bonus bird increased my score by 6K!

I’m outta here, and happy that I don’t have to come back!

Playing this as the daily challenge. And what fun it is!
Bird One
Fling Matilda nearly as in walkthrough video, to end very slightly further to the right. But, don’t drop the egg bomb. Let Matilda just clip the edge of the stone platform, just slightly, just enough to tip it, the black lantern and the stones forward and into the trough below.
Bird Two
Like the video, making sure you go through the wooden strut. Then you’re in the hands of the Gods / birds / piggies. In an ideal world the top structure falls, causing mayhem and lots of points below, and something flips upwards and downwards to hit the TNT.
I’ve hit 116k, 117k and current score with this.
