Angry Birds Seasons Winter Wonderham Golden Egg #42 Walkthrough

Golden Egg #42, or better known as the “New Year’s 2013 Egg”, is unlocked automatically at 8AM UTC on 31 December, 2012 and is found within the Winter Wonderham episode of Angry Birds Seasons. This is the second such level, and perhaps the newest annual tradition in the Angry Birds universe. Our strategy is to send Orange between the two stone walls above the hanging boulder. Trigger upon impact to send the small blocks on both sides to clear the level. The score in the video below is 186,130.

Alternatively, fire the Orange bird through the top two/four snow blocks of the leftmost tree. At this trajectory, the Orange bird will still settle between the two piles of stones in the center of the level. Triggering the Orange bird’s expansion manually or automatically is only a difference of fractions of a second, but who knows, it may make all the difference in the world! The score in the video below is 189,160.

I’ve had a bit more success* by throwing the Orange Bird horizontally, through the top two (or top four) snow blocks in the leftmost tree. With that aim, the Orange bird should settle between the two towers of stones and throw them outward.

* By “a bit more success”, I mean that I have managed to break all relevant presents and pigs through different trials, but have not been lucky enough yet to get a @ChaosTsar perfect storm. I would have had 191k+ but the dangling pig on the left side did not pop. I think ChaosTsar is pretty close to the limit here, as you can break all presents except for 1 using a 1-bird strategy (the blue present in the middle will always survive, I believe).

Indeed, I earned 190k with the same strategy with the blue present untouched. With a bit more debris destroyed, 192-193k is what I think is the range of the highest scores possible.

I found the horizontal shot much easier and higher scoring. I was in the 160k range with the shoot and holler technique. Seems like hitting just the top two on the tree gave a better chance of Big O landing more in the centerwhen he bounced off the rock wall.
Fun little level…

Is anyone else having a serious issue of game lagging in this level? Its basically happening to me till such a point that I release the OB from the sling and the next moment he is sitting between the two stone towers. This is on my PC btw.

This problem is neither happening on my sister’s galaxys3 nor my iphone5 as a matter of fact but only on my PC for some reason. Note: This lagging does not happen on any other level of any other episode or WW and not even on the other two golden egg levels of WW but only this one.

While it’s been some time since I played the PC version, one question is particularly pertinent. How much was running in the background, and were any of those programs running at the time? Things like automatic backups and virus scans can be unusually memory-intensive, and effect other programs. Try shutting down some of the applications running in the Windows System Tray (right side of the taskbar), and see how that effects performance.

The above is even more true if you have an older PC that isn’t maxxed out with all the RAM the motherboard can hold. Too many application developers feel the need to have their program link to the System Tray, thus using resources most users might consider to be otherwise available.

Happy New Year!!! @TruckDriver, the likeliest culprits in this person’s PC is either an underpowered video card or chip (whichever the case may be), or in some extreme cases, an inadequate power supply.

Rank: Master Slinger with 7205 points
By TruckDriver (@truckdriver)Score: 186,520

That’s entirely possible. Given the range of various hardware pieces, and their possible configurations, it is difficult to blindly diagnose any particular PC in a meaningful fashion, but some standards exist, and some clues emerge.

Given what @ayan reported, both initially, and in follow-ups, whatever seems to be affecting his system is both resource intensive, and requiring an internet connection. It’s possible that what’s causing his lag problem is some sort of malware resident on his PC, or it could be a pre-installed legitimate piece of software performing a legitiate function. Since he failed to mention it, however, my normally suspicious mind tends to discount legit software, and consider some illicit program at the root of his problem. Even certain free tools, like the Google toolbar for instance, can install monitoring software, if you’re not careful. Either way, a full and complete diagnostic of his system would seem to be in order here.

And in closing, Happy New Year from Rocker, MT!!!

Really weird –I’ve already played this level, but … At exactly 4pm PST, which I think is midnight UTC, the golden egg came up on my screen again. I was hoping that this might mean there were 2 NY eggs, but no, no additional egg.

that’s what must have happened to me. i was replaying level 15 when the egg popped up, but i doubt if it was anything i struck and by now i’m guessing it happens on any level(?)

a nice boost to #64 in the game center …for now.

Great score @werewolf69. Btw did you get the middle present by any chance? I got it only once when the OB’s “poofing” made an icicle to fall on the present but there were some pigs left so had to restart the level.

The blue present in the cave can be popped, but to get it requires the use of two birds, and if you do this you won’t be able to get over 190K.

Yes, it is very true. But I was wondering if there was way to take down all(and I mean all) presents and the rest of the level like the videos. I think that is how @kace1016 got his score.

I didn’t realize I had gotten the top spot, otherwise, I would have paid closer attention to what I did. If I remember, though, when the bird expanded in the center, it sent the stone blocks flying and knocked out part of each snow tree on the left and right.

@ayan, thank you and Happy New Year. As as the blue present in the middle is concerned, I think that OB got it when he poofed, it all happened so fast, after about 300 attempts to raise the score my eyes were so tired that I was unable to follow everything on the screen at once…What I do remember is that my score towards the end was at 159k, then out of nowhere it rose to 162k + 30k from 3 leftover Birds.

I play angry birds on my iPad and the New Years golden egg still isn’t showing up. It is showing up on my Android phone. I prefer playing on my iPad because it’s bigger. Do you know if this can be fixed?

Try restarting your iPad and double-check that you have an active WiFi connection.

Also, it might help to clear Seasons from the multitasking bar. That’s what I had to do to get the New Year’s GE to appear.
