Angry Birds Seasons Winter Wonderham level 1-16 was first available on Sunday, December 16th, 2012. Send the first Pink bird onto the sleigh of presents, then toss the Blue bird through the snow and ice under the main structure. Finish by tossing the last Pink bird into the icicles above the structure, letting them slice through the remaining pigs. The score in the video below is 127,460.
Bonus! Our Winter Wonderham level 1-16 Mighty Eagle walkthrough is live as well!
Pink Bird through sled to get presents and clear way for Blue Bird.
Blue Bird through snow triangle to destroy and undermine ice blocks.
Pink Bird through icicles to destroy remaining birds at right.
3 Stars – 125,550
@Westmiller: Where on the sled did you aim and when did you bubble? Where did you split and hit the snow triangle? How did you angle tha icicle shot to get them both? Please do tell us…
@brave1966: Aim Pink Bird between left presents, let it bubble at right of sled. Split Blue Bird just before hitting the snow triangle.
Angle the second Pink Bird at ~45-degrees to hit icicles, but just luck to hit both and get thorough damage.
Just tip of icicles. Score 142390
129K+ 2 birds – attack the right side first
…using the icicles to penetrate deep into the ice layer to undermine the ship and get the buried piggie
Yes, indeed @bikkit. I never would have thought the pink bird could go through both icicles, but if you pass just through their tips, you can indeed make them fall straight down and totally dissolve the ice and wood directly underneath them. As Mumsie says, you can then shoot the second bird through the presents and the rest of the ice to clear the level without too much difficulty. There should be quite a few more points here with a nicer collapse.
Wow @austinrhl @mumsie42 is it just me/us or are they making icicles out of sterner stuff in 2012?
I got a low 3-* (120730) by wiping out both icicles on first shot–using Stella’s debris to hit the icicles. If you shoot stella so she just hits the concrete bar on the tower, the bar goes up and takes down both icicles. I’ve succeeded (not reliably) in getting the whole right side to collapse this way–even taking out the buried pig.
Messed up the rest of it and used all four birds to get the 3-star.
More skilled and persistent players will probably do better.
At any rate, this is one way to get both icicles to come down.
Nope, the icicles depicted in Winter Wonderham are surely made of H20, just like the real-life “frozen death daggers” that kill at least 400 people worldwide each year in our coldest cities and towns, places like Moscow, St. Petersburg and Chicago (and I would guess somewhere in Finland, too). A popular show on the Discovery Channel, “Mythbusters” did its own experiment that showed how someone could be “skewered” by a falling icicle. More alarming is the number of serious injuries caused by falling ice; brain damage and paralysis are a common outcome in man vs. icicle. Here’s a link to a newspaper article on the subject: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/russia/7512865/Falling-icicles-kill-record-numbers-in-St-Petersburg.html
By the way, Pink Bird Stella can cause these icicles in WW Level 1-16 to act like dive-bombing birds, soaring back up in the air only to drop down and wreak even more havoc to the hapless pigs and their tug boat.. Pretty darn cool the first time you witness it. Aloha.
Wai Mea @surfcow, I just happened to hit upon this variation of the launching sequence for PC users.
1) First shot same as video.
2) Launch your Blue Bird at a medium to high arc and split just before reaching the left icicle, the top bird should bring down both icicles pointy end down and one of the other birds takes out last pig, the third bird goes to a Retreat for the Useless, by now there should be almost nothing left.
2 Bonus Birds = 20000 points
wow @surfcow I thought this only happened to sabre-tooth tigers in the first Ice Age film! (I got hit on the shoulder by a falling coconut once which hurt a lot but I was just grateful it missed my head)
You’re lucky! Do you even realize how many people die of coconuts falling on their heads? It’s no laughing matter!
126980 using this strat. You only need to get the tip of the first icicle to get the behavior @bikkit described. Easy split shot to get the presents and two left-most bad piggies.! :)
@bikkit – same as really, only using my own initiative for a change, lol :)
@Kathy – think I’m all done on this level. I’m off to Rio now to play golden beachball for a bit as I’m in much need of a holiday, oink oink ;) See you in 17 :)
Nice to use Stella to knock something down instead of relying on the somewhat unpredictable bubbles. I had 73k after the 1st shot, including getting the buried piggie. I split the blues early so the lowest goes through the ice underneath, middle goes though the presents & top goes over to cut the rope & continue under the 2nd ship for more destruction.
….. This did it …. 145,740 to 20th spot days later.
1st bird up in high arc to knock icicles down causing immense damage > 95,750 (previous best 1st shot score was just under 86k). Other than pig & presents on left,there was NO ice on right & almost no wooden triangles on right.
Split 2nd bird almost immediately, very slight downward angle taking out the remaining ice,
killing pig & destroying all presents. This shot totalled just under 30,000.
ABS WW 1-16, 130180 w/2..
Same shots for an easier level, at least for me.
Here’s a screenshot of the first p/b passing through the icicles and bubbling up the bow.
More collateral to be had for sure. Have a good Sunday!.. thx
ABS WW 1-16, 141340 w/2.. Plus 11K on the same strat with the additional collateral I was hoping for. Wish I could do that everyday.. thx
Thanks for the strategy, I was stuck on about 126k. 1st for now, not for long I suspect !
Again, a picture tells ofter more than thousands of words. Great strat!
Ty for strat @bikkit this worked a treat and its fun waiting to see if you have the ‘bouncing’ icicle
One thing – the golden angle of the first shot is about 40 degrees.
So astonished when I see the icicles literally dissolve all the glass(ice)!!
Used the same strategy for an above average score thanks @bikkit for posting. Also tried a different strategy with the pink bird of picking up the top wood and some stone structure on the right side and hitting the icicles. It seemed to break through the bottom structure more often when everything came down.
1st bird at stone ledge under icicles -floated up and broke both icicles which took out ice blocks below causing right hand pig to slide down.
2nd bird at sledge and snow taking out pig under ice and all presents. 128550!
Well that was a brief, albeit pleasant, moment at number 1!
132,850 with this strategy
up to 136,250 now.
Yep, best method so far for me
First (and only) attempt; 132K. Pink bird landed right of the vertical ice plate so I thought I had failed, but then she hit the icicle on the right which came down and destroyed the entire ship including the pig underneath the ice. I was just looking at the destruction so I forgot to check the points after this shot. Bluebird finished Santa and the presents.
135570, same strategy as mumsie wrote.
1st bird have to hit the two stalactities so they fall vertically, and while they’re destroying most of the wood platform, the bird bubbles-up and makes fall other material of the platform.
2st bird have to be launched so he penetrate the gift-boxes AND the ice ander the second platform (it can look difficult, but it’s not that hard)
Pink Bird to stone platform at top of “ship”, lifting pieces to break both icicles and clearing most pigs at right.
Blue Bird split early through presents and snow triangle, destroying ice and trapped pig.
Pink Bird high and long to break icicles and clear remaining pigs.
3 Stars – 129,570
The key is to avoid hitting anything stone with he icicles
I accidentally typed the third instruction, but the strategy is the same as @Mumsie42, which I didn’t see above.
The stone ledge can easily take out both icicles and destroy all the birds at the right, including the one encased in ice.
3 Stars – 129,570 … but still plenty of debris.
1st bird high arc just barely clear the ship tower landing on or near the 3 metal bits just to the right of the tower. This raises the metal (which stops the icicle from doing it’s job)out of the way while assorted debris rises and knocks the icicles loose (rear one is the key) which now has a clear way to the bottom, sliding along taking everything out on the right. Second shot, blast presents, splitting early to also take out ice below boat.
I have tried and can’t repeat this, but that’s the way I got the high score. Good luck!
Great! Went from 115,000 to 137,840! It’s pretty when it works right. Thanks!
For PC users who need a better Pink aim at both stalactite, try putting the pointy right at the last Blue (minor adjustments needed)… :)
I actually completed a level before the walkthrough video was posted?!? First time ever! I just wanted to see if I used a similar strategy to reach 3 stars. Guess I’ll have to check back later.
Pink bird to take out stalactites/icicles and drop for max damage.
The blue bird is the sweet shot, I haven’t fully read all posts yet so don’t know if anyone has discovered this shot…
I fired blue under the gift sled and it went right through the ice to the other end, took out almost everything. 3rd on leader board for now…
Nice call raised my score by 10,000 that way
140,730 with 2 birds :
– Stella on the two stalactites : it destroyed almost everything on the right, including the six pigs. Lucky I was.
– Blue bird on moustache pig + presents.
Aim the blue bird down at the ice under the first pig. If split at the right time, and with a bit of luck, one of the birds will skid all the way to the right and destroy pretty much all the ice for a much higher score.
Deffo found aiming for the metal plank to raise the pieces to the icicles is the better strategy. Ensures both fall and just got a great score
Cool, top score for now!
First bird to just clip the two icicles and make them fall. It is vital that the bird lands clear of where the icicles drop, otherwise the bubbles get in the way.
That took out almost all the right side, leaving an easy shot to the one pig left at the left hand side with the presents.
There is a “sweet spot” with the 2nd bird that slides the blue birds all the way under the left hand piggy but it is risky, so in the 145k game I went for the safer but lower scoring option targeting the pig directly.
I had a better first shot a while back but missed the second one going for the slider and ended up with only 136k. Reckon I could have got 150 that time.
I have found this to be the best payoff for score too. Now to work on getting over 140K :D
I suppose so 150 K is highly possible. I was just at 106K+ after 1st shoot (before at 96K+). So I bit @rob48 nicely by 4.5K margin (at the moment). My description is lower.
Nice shooting! I have worked out the sweet spot for the second bird, you have to fire low and split above the slope before the sled so that one of the blues “skis” down the ice and accelerates right under the sled. Haven’t been able to nail this after a good 1st shot though!
THX, I was beaten a little from Top :(. I know about this possibility with 2nd BB shoot now but it’s on the risky side after excelent first attempt. What about your 1st shoot max score?
1st bird through the icicles and onto the far-right pig.
2nd bird onto the sled popping all the presents and the remaining pig.
I got 135k with that.
At 2nd intuition attempt I made 120K+. Next little problems was started :). After return to 118K+ level I made 138K+ (96K+ after 1st shoot). And some other scores.
Screen adjusting: middle size, just to cut screen R side just after last pig. At L side top end of red-white stipes stick – well marked start point.
1. PB arc to nicely knock down icicles. PB works there as Health and Safety Inspector (Remember – Safety First ;). Some variants here. A. Bounce one icicle to other. B. Both same time. C. One goes down, 2nd lifted by gum bubbles. D. Both icicles activated by gum bubbles; and many others.
As I wrote – form me best score after 1st shoot was 96K+, almost all R side gone, on the left only sledge survive.
2. BB aim slightly down – just to smash suvenirs. One or two divided mini BB tackles and goes nicely crashing white block guards and clearing blue ice under middle part. Propably there is some billard game with the angle of incidence and reflection. Never mind, well designed :).
4B / 3* possible. Many scores near 118-123K, some under 130K, 136-138K. If you need 3rd shoot just remember – 1st PB arc was stopped by icicles. You must correct aiming and go higher arc.
I read hihgher so some more complicated and scorable 2nd BB shoot is possible but I haven’t succesfully try them (yet). After record 1st shoot I went safely the same way.
What I can to say. My way is probably rather good. At the moment TOP SCORE with 149.750. YES, YES, YES.
This level is insane and there doesn’t seem to be a bottom for the scores. Just hit 153k/2b by taking down icicles with 1st. Looking at this action pic there is still a fair around of debris left.
Congratlulations for you @ernor63. I suppose so my top score will not so long survive but not so short too! 3rd video shoot shows an idea too. Which method you pass 2nd shoot?
@ernor63, with 2 birds, we’ll have at least 170k for clearing everything… :)
149,750 – pink bird into icicles, blue bird into presents. Split blue bird late, wipe everything out.
Try grazing the first big icicle and hitting the other one with your first pink bird. Often that will take care of all the pigs except for Santa, which you can clear out with all his presents on your second shot. I managed over 133,000 pts that way.
My score for level 16 is 144,540 first the bubble bird I hit the top portion of the wooden section under the icicles then it grabbed the icicles and dropped them at the same time grabbed some of the wood and dropped them, this obliterated everything except the big piggie on the sled. With the blue bird I hit him and most of the ice .
After numerous attempts a one birder. Same approach as most appear to be using – grazing icicles and falling onto right hand pig. Difference this time was that roof over top pig moved to left and landed on presents and left hand pig rolled off.
That’s all for this level, must get back to levels I’m not even ‘average’ at.
lol @dasa From “not even at average” to top score! Did you use the same strat as in @e-star video, or did you find something different?
I realize it’s been a long time but if you can remember that’d be great,,if not no worries :D Congratulations on the trophy!
years later i realize i messed up above post, meant @dasa51 ?
Lol, even more years for me to lose the plot. Had a busy day so only just looked at today’s challenge. Comex creeping up on me and I can’t remember any details of how I got top slot. Time for some vino :)
I send the pink bird to the icicles on the right, sending them down to sink the ship. Took a LOT of tries to get a good start and finished it of by sending the blues to the presents and the last Pig standing. I got 139250.
Here is my video of the titanic :D
Followed your video, sank the Titanic and improved my score by 19,000. Thanks for the video @e-star, I always get great scores when I watch your videos.
You make it sound so easy hahahaha, well maybe it was after watching the video hahaha.. but GREAT improvement @ohforfive!
After all the frustrating attempts using all the other strategies, yours was relatively easy. It was the little subtleties in the video not talked about in other strats. Keep posting your videos, their great.
Five years later and @e-star your videos are still giving! It’s obvious when I looked more closely at the video, but contrary to other posters above, activating Stella manually shortly after striking the first icicle finally got me above average at 133k. Not great, but I’ll take it for now. Thanks!
thx to @e-star for great video.
second bird, i activate immediately, same result
Happy Holidays Everyone! Let’s get that HollyDog !
Good luck Flingers and I hope you all enjoy the Advent!
@comex666 @captrec @ ixan57 @karen68 @Gumby …etal..
@ixan57 don’t feel bad, keep flinging I’ve managed 135k so far but can’t seem to get past that, Your right it’s that second shot, I’ve watched Estar video over and over my birds just don’t slice through must be a Sweet spot that we are missing
Nice improving everyone, I improved 2k, but I want a HollyDog!! haven’t tried my whine yet so here goes!
Not beating my 138k yet. But getting better percentage bottom damage with activating Stella at the tip of the first icicle. Lifting both icicles and hopefully dropping bottom down for most damage. What’s letting me down is the second shot, if I can get that right I’m sure I can get a good score.
