Reverse-remi the boomerang bird with the aim of dislodging the sleigh and at the same time causing damage to the tree etc behind it. Tricky to do both, but without damaging the tree (and the bell & sign too if possible) the sleigh on its own just doesn’t rack up enough points when it crashes into all the stuff at the bottom of the hill.
Another strat to try. High lob the bird without accelerating and break the horizontal wood of the sled. The concrete block will fall to he right and at the same time pushes the sled with the bird on it down the hill.
@crivit I think it works even better if you activate just before hitting the top of the sled. The horizontal wood breaks more frequently. Also, if the horizontal wood has been broken, wait a little bit. Most of the time the sled will go down the hill even though it looks like nothing is moving. For some reason, and contrary to what seems reasonable, the sled seems to do more damage at the bottom with less on top of it.
@stocktoad I was trying that also later on, but never could get that block slide further up right. So I think 2 birds is the way go go here. With @smhands strat (thanks!)you will notice that block should stay attached to the sled for way more damage.
Big Red square at bottom of slope is worth lots of points if completely broken. New score 69k
Two birds: Green birds in a high lob, landing upon the sleigh. Breaks everyting, then rolls to the right. The only thing left there is the bottom of the sleigh. Then bombbird in a high arc to land after the bottom of the sleigh, detonate it manually. The sleigh bottom rolls down and creates lots of points.
and to be honest – tons of luck are involved
Alternative is send green bird over the sleigh into the tree. Knocks down tree and takes out everything to the right. 18K on first bird. Bomb bird high lob, lands on sleigh, manually detonate, sleigh slides down hill and takes out pigs at the bottom.
@smhands, I was trying that earlier but never got a result like yours. Where did you land 1st shot to dislodge tree & everything else on the right?
Bird just clips the coffee pot and slices cleanly through the base of the tree. Try to avoid the snow covered branches, which slows the bird down and redirects it.
I found you have to barely clip the kettle atop the sled. If you hit the cinder block I start over. If I go past the kettl without hitting it I start over. I have yet to get anything above 10k without the way I descrived. Otherwise clipping the kettle just right and hitting base of tree takes that and the sign down for around 18k. Takes a lot of restarts.
not sure if it’ll be the same thing on every platform but I would zoom all the way out and draw the first bird down until the beak was just touching base of the sling and then release. frequently that would take out the coffee pot and then go through the tree
Thank @smhands! 75520 following your strategy.
Thanks, excellent strategy. First shot is tricky but reproducible by having the green bird’s beak just touch the slingshot before it is released. Black bird doesn’t tend to go as high so arc has to be shallower to reach the sled.
Managed to get top score by following the above strategy. 18,400 after 1st shot. Let black bird land on top of stone on back of sled, detonated after it bounced slightly behind sled to drive sled and contents down the hill. Managed to destroy almost everything at bottom. Important to destroy the kettle in the red box for max score.
@smhands thanks for sharing your strat, where does boomer land ? I’ve hit the tree gone through it destroyed the sign but still not even close to 10k :(
Thanks for the strat and the extra details @smhands !!! Added info from @dr-dave also helps greatly.
@kathy I haven’t put a good shot one together with a good shot two yet, but I have now had good ones of both. The key to shot one is hitting just the handle of the coffee pot. If you are lucky, the bird will go through the base of the first tree and crash into the sign. The what is left of the sign will slide down the hill. The bird will then slide down the hill and land on what is left of the sign, hopefully destroying all of it. 18K+ scores are possible, but if the bird slides down before the sign it won’t be that high.
Thanks @stocktoad @karen68 for the tips. It seems just a lot of luck needed and yes to put the 2 shots together. I keep thinking there must be some significance to the one red ball on the tree that the arrow is pointing at but i havent figured it out..unless its just meant to direct boomer hmm?
@kathy the description from Stocktoad is perfect. I haven’t got the 18k+ too often, but I’ve seen a lot of 14k scores after shot 1.
I guess the higher scores come from destroying the coffee pot sign at the bottom, but I haven’t found a way to make that happen, it seems to be mainly luck.
Also, the sled never breaks apart when it falls – that would give a few more points. I wonder if anyone has seen that happen.
@stocktoad a pink elephant avatar? Love it. :)
Same as Dr Dave. Only 17,000+ after the first shot. Nearly everything at the bottom destroyed. Thanks @smhands! Great strategy. I think someone will break 80,000 with a lot of patience. Or a lot of luck.
You’re right. I don’t know what’s beyond that tree, but boy does it rack up points if you can get the green bird to slide down on the sign.
Thanks a lot @smhands – your method really works. Took a few tries but finally everything fell just right for a 72K score. Was stuck at 69K using my own method (reverse-remi) but it was way too tricky a shot compared to yours. Much simpler and repeatable. Kudos!!
@smhands , thanks for the strat. I haven’t had a lot of time to try it because I have to get to work but it did add another 6K to my score already. thanks again
Thanks for posting @smhands. Used the same strategy. Was able to do the first bird a number of times and obtain a 15k+ score. I launched bomb bird so it would activate just to the right of the sleigh and push everything down the hill to activate the tnt. If I landed on the sleigh sometimes the tnt did not activate and the far left pig would remain.
many thx to @smhands for the strat.
here my video:
Sweet Strat @bernersenn! I got my 71k with one bird. Been working on your 2 birdie play all day. Finally got over 18k with toucan bird but BB came up short. Highest was 70k with 2 birds. I do like this level so I will keep working it.
@gypsybird as I wrote “tons of luck are involved”. Whenever a game within Seasons can be defined as “rinse and repeat” it is this one.
My score (73k) came from a gazillion retries.
Absolutely @bernersenn! And 1-10 even more so! They are fun to a point, but a bit of a non-starter in terms of competitive play. Still flinging though lol :))
@bernersenn Thank you for this, I just increased my score by 1k + not a lot but enough!! PiP 🐣
You’re welcome @kathy
I hope you will still know how you got your great score. If so, could you explain it to us?
I found I tended to get higher scores if I hit the sleigh high and hard enough to send it down the hill but with Mr Boomerang hitching a ride … where the pig was … just topped 70K by this method…
I think having the sled land upside down is worth several thousand points. Of course, have no idea how to make that happen reliably!
playing on ipad. anyone else experiencing the level not closing even after all pigs r popped?
I’ve had that happen occasionally. Touch the arrow on the bottom right and it should produce your score immediately.
YES. More often than not. This level has been terrible about sticking on my iPad. Frustrating!
Yes @mars805 it’s happening on my Nexus also (android os)
@mars805 no, also playing on Ipad (3 or air) – no issues here (except bad flinging ;-) )
I had no luck getting a good score with Hal towards the top and hoping to get the stuff besides the tree and getting him down (believe me I tried). So I went about it a different way. I send Hal towards the bottom into the stove, taking down everything at the bottom. Next I send Bomb just in front of the sledge, detonate it manually to send the sledge flying towards the right and into the tree and into the structure with the kettle. I got a score of 71,450 this way.
Here is my my video.
Thanks @e-star. Was able to add 3K to my score following your video.
Any suggestions for hitting the two skis on the bottom of the slope? I need them for a quest and they seem to be part of the background and unaffected by anything I do.
I’ve been trying with no luck either
I got it by pushing sleigh from top with first bird then hitting wood ski? High against snow/rocks with bomb bird
I am not seeing anywhere near the amount of damage to get me even close to the average score.
