Hi, not a big score yet but I have found a glitch that might develop into something that gives mega scores. The chain separated into 5 or 6 segments that defied gravity and just floated around, twitching, and racking up points. I let it run for a couple of minutes, then the chain reassembled itself and the level ended.

Might be nothing, but it’d be interesting to hear if anybody else sees this

@bikkit, where did you hit the chain to activate this glitch?

Hi @eyestone not too sure but it was released from its right side and dangling down. It then split into several sections all twitching,and the points were moiunting quite quickly. Then suddenly the chain reassembled. All most weird, hasn’t happened again but I’m working on the daily challenge so I’ll be back on this level tomorrow.

Does anyone else remember the glitch from one of the Christmas levels about 3/4 years ago. It was great….had to fire one of the birds at an angle and it made the entire level pretty much blow

@bikkit I haven’t experienced your breaking chain glitch,, But this level is definitely still glitchy.. First off before Flinging any bird i stepped away to idk do something,, even i came back the top tower was leaning waaayyyb to the right, no points, but acknowledged
so then after screwing up a few flings, i flung red per video, as i understand is the way to go? correct me if I’m missing something, what p any way the chain feel to the right part norm, but kept swinging and pulling on the upper structure giving points, I haven’t quite figured it out yet, just got here , well 2 years later than previous visit lol,,*sigh”* we Always come back don’t we¿ anyway thought I’d just mention it🐣

Alternative strategy. Same first bird but big red fired to just go over the top of the small pig at the front of the stone tower. There is a sweet spot which will bring down all the remaining buildings and big red drops through the gap to take out the two pigs on the ledge underneath. If there is any debris left on top, bomb bird can be fired to clear it. Just used this method, one bird remaining, everything cleared for 196,880.

Just managed a two bird finish for 201,410. There was still a bit of debris remaining so a little bit more is possible. It all depends on the damage big red does.

Hi @greybrow53! I have yet to find that sweet spot for Big Red. If he falls into the gap, debris usually diverts him back to the left. Do you have any hints on this shot?

Prior to checking out this walkthrough, I was lobbing lil Red such that he hit the lower left most black triangle at the top of the first structure. He’ll roll backwards and down along the chain to wipe out most of the left side. Big Red to the top, followed by Bomb and lots of luck that those 2 lower right porkers get taken out in the process. 187k this way so far.

So bear with me on this one.

First of all, it’s really important not that first bird (small red) hits the stone triangles at the joint with the round anchor point as this brings everything down. The odd thing here is that, even though the debris cleared each time appears to be the same, the scores can be anything from 46,000 to 50,000.

Now, big red. He has three tiny feathers on his tail. I use an iPad and, zooming in as far as I can, I align the middle feather on his tail to the point at which it touches the middle triangle branch of the tree behind him (third down from the top). If you do that right, big red should just brush the top of the bobble hat of the first small pig. It still doesn’t guarantee success, but you should start hitting the sweet spot more regularly and, hopefully, one of these times will yield a good result.

Happy popping!

Thanks @greybrow53. Good aiming advice on the second. It works on my Android too (independent of zoom degree), so I guess backgrounds are the same.

@greybrow53 congrats on the great score and thanks for the detailed strat, when you say on second shot line up with the third branch down from the top , is that counting the top as #1? I’ve tried both ways but can’t quite get the sweet spot, playing on android tab , it’s such a tight shot zoomed in hard to take time as Big Red seems to jump off the sling barely having had him lined up:(

Hi Kathy. There are four triangle shaped branches on the right side of the tree. I line up with the second one down from the top (or third one up from the bottom). ?

Lots of times it doesn’t work – occasionally it does. Good luck!

Thanks @greybrow53 for the excellent aiming tip on the 2nd shot. Terence skimmed through the hat on top of the wee pig before crashing into the structure. He ended up sliding down off the right side, but with some debris piled up on the stone, he ended up being pushed onto the ledge to get the 2 stubborn pigs underneath.
The stone on the right rocked up & down before finally falling. Nothing left but 2 cracked pieces of wood.

Have managd two bird strategy twice but less than 180k both times.

My top score at the moment was 193750 was achieved with same first shot but second bird took out left side top, fell through gap and elimated pigs on ledge. Bird tyree took out wooden house on right plus chair and anchor belw it.

As in previous levels, the cards aren’t falling my way in terms of points so just have to keep flinging and praying. Maybe I’ve been naughty and Santa isn’t bringing me presents (great scores) this Christmas season lol.

@greybrow53
Thank you for the great strategy and detailed posts. Kept flinging and Big Brother did hit the “sweet spot” as you described.

A few tips that might help others:
1. When the Red Bird hits the joint between the gear and right triangle Red goes flat with it’s bounce and produced scores closer to 50k. Highest score was 50,770. Does not work every time but with the majority of flings one can get close to or on 50k.
2. I aligned Big Brother with the ends of the branches on the tree. The fourth branch end/point from the bottom seems to provide the best damage but the tail feathers can align a bit above and below the end point. This is also the fifth branch end/point from the very top of the tree, not counting the top branch’s end point but counting the little point to the right. I will assume it is the same “triangle” you referenced due to outcome.
3. I assumed the gap in the rock that was previously mentioned was the one on the left side which produced scores in the 180-192k range. Could not obtain a score above 192K. Big Brother travelled past the left gap and dropped into the right gap and destroyed just about everything. Could only view one vertical wood/stone post when the dust settled. Big Brother through the right side gap produced the present score.

Two birds, red into the bridge like walkthru, second bird I got lucky… I was arguing with angry angel so wasnt even paying much attention to exactly where I hit, but there is a.sweet spot as mentioned… for me its just over the ore cart and the red bird crashes thru hard. Although , I.m not sure itsabsolutely necesary to hit that spot. My recommendation is to go just over the cart, maybe even brushing the piggy in it.

I have screenshot of both remaining debris and flight path of terrance .and final score screen I will put up tomorrow…. almost every thing was gone but still had almost half the right shack left.

I think the score.range on the first shot is.due to things we cant see below…. sometimes stuff falls on other stuff, not sure if I broke 50000 ever

There is.two ways.at.least the pigs at the lower right can be got….one is when terrence has so much force he keeps traveling to the right when he falls thru the gap. Another is when the wreath on the house at the right rolls down the right way and gets the pigs.

Or just some debris happens to get them is the third I guess

Sorry @tmax, Underdogs are not awarded during the Advent Calendar levels. Reason being, they do not have a previous top score to beat, so therefore there are no “underdogs.”
