One strategy for Piglantis level 1-9 is to loft the first White bird all the way to bomb the far-right pig. There’s a small “sweet spot” there, where the majority of the sand blocks will break. Then fire another White Bird into the leftmost stone triangle, toppling the remaining structure. If needed, clean up with one more White bird.
As an alternative, more repeatable, and high scoring strategy, try the “Swimming Egg” technique, first noted by @alfredhartojo. The video below yields 10,000 points more than above, and there is certainly room for improvement as well!
Throw white down and release egg,white will hit upper structure,while her egg is floating and eventually current will push the egg to the sand platform on the right,making the right side sink,use the remaining birds to clear the rest,2 birds…
Super strategy. Thanks!
Thanks, that worked great for me too. I never would have thought the egg would float and destroy anything.
Yes, that’s a superior and easier to execute strategy.
Very clever… The… Helped my score.
That certainly was interesting to watch. Thinking outside the box in action. Sure it’s a good strat when you can get halfway to the 3* score without hardly even doing anything.
@alfredhartojo…Thank you for that extraordinary strat. Don’t know how you ever figured it out but it
certainly helped my score. And thanks to @Slim for posting the video.
genius … thanx
Awesome strategy!!! Managed the 3-Stars in one try… Well, after trying 4 thousand other times before coming to ABN for a walk through! :-)
Awesome strategy @alfredhartojo. I send the second bird as a floated bird to the leftmost stone triangle, just like AMslimfordy described it, most of the remaining structure fell – highscore :)
Aww. Thought I’d hop on and see if anyone else succeeded with the floating egg strategy…and of course, alfredhartojo had already posted! I’ll take a few more shots, my score is only 104,550.
Thanks,alfrdohartojo, This is a crazy good idea. My score needs improving but that really helped. Another new way to use white! She is quite versatile!
Thanks @alfredhartojo ! Gained and extra 10,000 with this strat.
Very Smart. Great Strat. Thanks a lot
@alfredhartojo — Great strategy! I would never have thought of it!
@AMSlimfordy — Words don’t match video above? Doesn’t seem to be a bloated bird???
Text was first. Video was later. Fuji does not have to follow what I thought was the most obvious strategy.
Great job! Made this level a lot easier!
As everyone else said, Thanks!!!
Great Strat @alfredhartojo!!! I bet your @mentions box is getting full, lol…funny thing is I had stumbled upon the floating egg but not thinking it would float all the way right…I was focusing on it bouncing up on sand under tnt to ignite it because it hit under the tnt a few times and the tnt shook ;-) I was using a similar strat as Slim descibes and came to post my score and this improved my score alot. Thank you ;-)
@lesleyg Yep,it’s full,LOL xD
Tried the video way for a zillion times with no success. Did your way right off the bat!! Thanks, works great!!
wow! very clever and helpful strategy!
@alfredhartojo, great catch!!! I was trying to get a bird to do that, didn’t think of an egg!! Every good! :)
Great strat! I discovered it myself accidently and I’m doing it slightly different from the vid (which isn’t yours I guess). First chicken, like the vid. But when you aim carefully, the chicken hits the leftmost column, making it kill the pig, break the wood and have everything left from the second column fall in the water.
While the egg is still floating, aim the second chicken over the structure and have it lay it’s egg in the gap between the temple and the pyramid. This will clear most of the temple and the pyramid and with a bit of luck, will blow the TNT, clearing the rest of the temple.
Now just wait until the egg arrives at the sand blocks and clears away the rest of the pigs and blocks.
This way, you only need 2 birds. It gave me 112.960 after just a few quick tries, but there’s certainly room for improvement.
Just like you described alfredhartojo. The second bird took out all remaining pigs for a 2-bird solution. Ty for such an innovative strategy.
I came across this stragedy this morning, and fine tuned it…. I came here to share in case no one had found it yet, but I see it already was. I guess i’m not as brillant as I thought I was. :) 11860 so far…(going for more) Makes me wonder what other sneaky ways there are to squeeze out more points.
@alfredhartojo that was a neat trick , worked great, thanks
Absolutely brilliant @alfredhartojo :). I had managed to 3 star this one first, mainly by dumb luck I think, but this strategy gave my score quite a boost- about 10k. This method is just great. I never would have thought of this!
Brilliant strat @alfredhartojo ! Finally 3-starred this level. :)
@alfredhartojo, that’s a brilliant idea and great strategy, I finally got 3 stars by using your awesome strat, thanks
Both my shots finally came together for a 3k improvement from 121130, which was already a good score for me, to 124370 on Android phone during today’s Challenge using @alfredhartojo & 2nd ABN video. The key to this great score was that I only needed 2 shots. With the way the debris leaned & pushed right after launching the 2nd shot as a bloated bird, that pesky pig on upper ledge that most often needs a 3rd shot was eventually crushed by a falling stone.
Thanks for the strategy @alfredhartojo. The floating egg works great.
There’s a one birder here using alfredhartojo’s strat.
Haven’t quite got it yet but I’ve come close a couple of times.
Through white bird horizontally, dropping egg in the water and rebounding off the stone on top of the first pillar.
You’ll want the pillar to tip the upper structure right setting off the TNT.
Meanwhile the egg will float along and take out the boxes.
If your really lucky bird’s carcass might hit the treasure chest on rebounding.
Let me know if anyone had any luck with this
I almost got the one birder. I used alfred’s strat – dropped the egg and the WB pushed over almost the entire left hand structure. The floating egg took out the right hand side. All that was left was the deepest buried pig in the center – under a ton of debris.
This was the method I was using when I first encountered this level. It’s not very repeatable, but like most levels, hard work would pay off eventually. :)
@kartflyer…WoW!!! We have the exact same score ;-)
@lesleyg Lol! :D
I can confirm that the one birder is possible, with exactly the strategy described by foley200. You have to hit the block on top of the first piller with the bird in such a way that the block flies to the right and tips over the top-most structure (the stuff on top of the horizontal stone bar). If you’re lucky, all the pigs on the left will die, and then the egg will float to the right underneath the sand blocks to finish the job. At 113540, not a particularly high score, but it’s still satisfying to do it with one bird. :)
Ditto, been trying the same for one birder. I try to knock the block resting on the pillar into the structure so it falls right but takes out some of the debris with it. 116k is all I’ve got so far.
I did get a one birder, but very low score-about 95k. I sent the first bird over like the second bird in the top video. The tnt exploded and everything fell to the right, but not enough points.
I almost got the one birder @foley200 this level is soo much fun I’ve improved to over 117k
@kathy ye love this level. the most I’ve ever got with a one birder is 118k, I’ve been over 120k a few times with 2 birds.
So maybe try flinging a second kathy
Ty @foley200 stop by the Bloated Pig found in forum ill buy you.a drink:) to thanks for.advice;)
Aw darn. I wasn’t the first to figure that out and report it. LOL
Well that was supposed to be a reply to @alfredhartojo I don’t know why it’s not there.
I got 3 stars with only 95490.
Are you sure of that number? I had 95k as 2 stars.
I’m an idiot. Of course I only had 2 stars. Sorry, I didn’t notice until just now.
No worries. Happens to the best of us.
I had 97k with two stars. Now I have 98k with three stars.
Both of the shots in this video are absurdly lucky. How about something more repeatable?
The first shot is not that lucky. There’s a sweet-spot on the right side that is quite repeatable.
The second shot is a little lucky. A more repeatable shot is to use the “Bloated Bird” technique described in the paragraph: Fire the White bird into the leftmost triangle without dropping its bomb. It should topple everything.
Take a look at alfredhartojo’s alternative strategy above.
It takes the guess work out of the first shot on the right hand side. The egg floats in like a Navy Seal and detonates the whole side. If you place that first shot right, you can take out a lot of the left side too. I almost had a one birder using it.
I did get the one birder as described… I used the egg, of course, as a Navy Seal (love that term @playdbird … And I will be stealing it BTW ;)… Anyway I Navy Seal the egg, that’s the easy part. Meanwhile I throw Mama bird a tad downward so that when deflated she hits low on the closest column. This pushes everything left and detonates TNT. It does not throw the stone atop the column. Instead the weight of the stone helps push the structure rightward, so it’s best left atop the column.
Deflated mama bird got the Treasure Chest for 1000 points but that’s just a bonus. One observation I had is that sometimes (ofttimes, actually) using a second bird in the left side maximizes points.
You’re welcome! :)
After the first bird as in alfredhartojo’s strategy and while the egg is making its way to the right, I use the second bird to drop the egg into the gap between the structures (on the pig in the middle). This works better for me than using the second bird in a bloated shot to the triangle that often leaves the middle pig alive.
@annach that’s the way to go. Thanks
Got 111,880 by floating the first egg and then dropped the second egg between the structures. It helps if you get the TNT to explode.
Stuck at it for about 10 minutes, and ended up with a 117090. Have gotten close several more times to that one shot clear, but it looked like the score(s) were going to be lower than my current high.
Now 117340 – my first shot goes over and drops between the structures, then I put the ‘floater’ in the water, ——– and —— wait.
I’ve tried ending by using Slim’s first shot like the video, but that didn’t get me much above 107K.
118380 – Sticking with the first egg dropped between the structures then putting the floater in the water. It depends on the TNT blowing, and taking most everything on the left and part of the right with that first shot. If I don’t have near to 70K when that floater is in, I restart.
That 122K on the leader boards is going to be tough to catch!
Speaking of the leaderboards, Liam, why don’t you enter your scores? Obviously, you are a good player, it wold be great having your scores included.
Agreed. Would love to complete with you, @liam.
Alternative Strategy Added
Special thanks to @alfredhartojo for the brilliant strategy.
Agreed! It seems all of the high scores are based on alfreds statement.
And thanks for the video Slim. It makes it look easy! I imagine that one took a while.
Thanks slim… :D
Alfredhartojo…THANK YOU. 100070. I had been on that level for about a week almost gave up. Thanks!
I just must say its very gracious of @FujiToast and @amslimfordy to posts a members strat videos :along side of the walkthrough video :)
its very nice to see @alfredhartojo to get recognized and I’m.sure it feels like an honor…great strat jojo ty:)
@kathy I prefer to be called Fred,and Ur’ welcome :)
@alfredhartjojo. srry..:( fred I just. thought it was quite an.honor. for slim to post. your video didnt .mean. any. disrespect :( l
This strat is soooo fun:) I keep coming. back to try and improve…I love the anticipation of waiting for the egg to. bobb its way over..:) thanks again fred:)
a great strat @alfredhartojo ty very much for sharing,and hello @Kathy ,just bumped my score up to 119k and it seems like a pretty repeatable 115+method ,if u go over first colum as close as u can with out touching and dont drop the egg it will push all to right slowly and bird falls back on little pig ,then use 2nd white to drop the floater and into first colum ..thanks again ,good luck
i am getting a bit crazy here now …. after a few hundreds tries, still could not get the 3 star for this level …. now sitting at 89/90 ….. scratching my head …. :-(
thanks alfredhartojo (@alfredhartojo) …. i got 109K using his method … before i did not come here for help … i never had unless i really got stuck like this one earlier ….. glad that i made it finally …. :-)
thanks all here for sharing …. happy birding !!!
Great idea believe it works!After you release the egg just wait with passions the far end will sink
To add a bit more to @alfredhardtojo strat, if you get the angle right with the first WB, not only does it knock the left tower over killing the small pig, he’ll then belly flop into the water and hit the chest. 1000 pts, when every bit of destruction counts. He only goes deep enough on the initial belly flop.
Eggsactly what i was looking for!!! Thanks!!!
Please add my thanks to Alfredhartojo – the floating egg is just frighteningly addictive. Using that technique, I managed 115,260. Then, I became obsessed after reading other scores. Just managed 121,660 and it’s time to move on. FUN.
Again a lot of comments I didn’t want to shift thru, sorry. But when I played this level I found out the floating egg, because a lot of the times the WB doesn’t disappear until the egg explodes. Wanted to let you know, but it was already here :)
I shot the first bird slightly different than the video on top, taking out more piggies. I didn’t wait for the egg to explode and send the second bird in. this way the debris from the left will fall to the right and in some cases can fall with the explosion of the egg, making extra points.
Here is my video of my 2 birder. I got 117940.
I did the same strat as you, that is, push as much as possible to the right BEFORE the floating egg (aka “Navy Seal”) takes out the right side. By pushing to the right before the Seal does her thing, more debris may fall into the water for more points.
1st WB: aim mostly horizontal but with deference to the downside. Lay an egg so that deflated chicken ricochets into stone brick atop first column, launching it (the brick) toward the top-most tower. Be sure to knock over the column, too, to clear a path for the second shot. (A one-bird is probably possible at this point, but I haven’t had one yet. Seems like I need two birds for most points).
2nd WB: aim at a shallow arc and lay the egg so that the chicken ricochets into the second column, which launches the stone triangle to the right, hopefully destroying as much of the wooden pyramid as possible before the “Navy Seal” blows up the right side. Disregard the TNT; it will blow up most of the time anyway. (The goal with 2nd chicken is to destroy as much wood as possible before final explosion, otherwise you end up with floating wooden debris and fewer points. Also, note the humor :) The chickens will often ricochet straight up into space for a time, or to the right, then suddenly come out of nowhere and bomb some of the remaining stuff, like the treasure chest, or the TNT, when you least expect it. Funny! :)
Thanks again, @e-star for your video-strats. They almost always give me above average scores. And thanks to all for your strat-posts and videos! Makes my 99-cents for AB app a goldmine worth of entertainment!
After 50+ attempts using the first strategy with marginal results, 2 attempts using the “Floating Egg” strategy yielded a 3 star score. Never would have though it would have worked
Not sure if this qualifies as an alt strat, but it’s easy to get three stars 9 times out of 10 with scores in the range of 98k to 118k, or more with a little luck, using two or three birds.
1st bird: aim on high arc and lay an egg directly on top of the pesky pig in the bottom center.
2nd bird: using Fred’s clever “Navy Seal” technique, aim slightly downward and lay an egg in the water so that the deflated bird ricochets upward hitting the sweet spot between the top of the column and the stone brick. This should knock over the column and launch the stone brick rightward for more damage long before the “Seal” torpedoes the right side..
3rd bird, if needed: wait for “Seal” to float by until it’s safe to launch. You don’t want to blow up the “Seal” prematurely from falling debris. Then aim to either push remaining structure rightward (without laying an egg) or bomb remaining debris with an egg for more points.
BTW, while this strat yields three stars 90% of the time, it probably won’t get you super high scores of 120k+. If you’re going for a super high score, use a different strat from choices in previous posts above. Happy birding!
It took me a few tries to realize what was causing the egg to “disappear”. I was releasing the egg to close the structure. It pops out of the water before it begins floating. So if it released too close the egg will pop up right into the bottom of the structure and explode.
Thought this level would be more straightforward, especially with that cool floating egg idea, but took forever to get above average. 1st shot didn’t do much other than knock over the left column, drop the egg & take out the first pig. I didn’t wait for the egg to work its magic but went ahead with the 2nd shot. I went with dropping the egg over the pig in the centre between the structures. I just couldn’t get the rest cleared by bombing the front of the left structure. This way cleared out what was left of the left side & had more debris to collide & fall right when the egg detonates. The TNT didn’t blow every time, but it needs to for higher scores.
@Karen68 I got this one for a quest , following the “swimming egg’ strat and your second shot as i did to begin with way back when for 124k I’m just not able to get above 114k with the 2 shots , seems I’m missing v something, I’ve been Flinging this for hours , like about 6 hours to be roughly exact.. perhaps it’s gotten harder to score i think?
maybe you or @Hunnybunny could give it a couple flings for the heck of it?
Piglantis has always been my favorite Episode, And I love the Swimming Egg theory, is useful in a couple levels , thanks to @alfredhartojo boy i miss that kid 😉
I still say Matilda’s shriveled up ‘It Was a Carcass’ Was much more effective than the now ‘Not a carcass’ that i believe @surfcow and @bernersenn comments years ago prompted Rovio to change it! to bad Rovio Never listen to anything else anyone suggests 😂
@karen68 great video, thanks
@kathy the “not a carcass” is still doing a nice job. I like this bird
@kathy about half hour of flinging & I managed to improve my score
@kathy this level does need some luck to get the front TNT, you need to take out the plank the 1st wee pig sits on with the 1st shot. Then take the 2nd shot before the floating egg does its thing, get the egg a bit closer to the left structure if you can.
Good luck 🙂
Nice improvement @karen68 Thanks! Right after i posted i managed to do better, still haven’t reached my 124k but i think I’ve been Flinging the first bird to high c now that i watch your video 🐣
Appreciate your taking the time to check it out for me 😎
@Karen68 Thanks for the video! improved by 5K in about three flings.
Thanks for the video and tips @karen. Breaking the wood board with the little pig with the first bird seems to be essential for the tnt box to be activated with the second bird.
I myself had a tough time just to pass average by about 3k, the floating egg was interesting, although it made no sense that it didn’t explode upon hitting the water, just like the bouncing eggs in Rio. But nonetheless, the scores are poorly distributed for the amount of damage done, and this episode just plain stinks.
Note to Rovio, your White Bird is a lousy pusher of pillars.
Total shock-would not have believed that I just flung a top score. Used the floating egg and just got super lucky with the 2nd WB and stuff just started collapsing everywhere-doubt I’ll ever be able to repeat. Thanks to everyone with comments and vids, they’ve often helped to improve my scores!
128890. First bird takes out first pilar and plank while laying egg. Following egg explosion, #2 bird drops bomb close to biggest piller on its right side. Voila. Several 123k repeats.
Using the floating egg method and got really good damage with Matilda on the first throw. It’s all luck, really.
